So what are prohormones anyway? If you’re new to Ultimate Athletic Fitness, and just hearing about prohormones for the first time, they’re basically steroids. Most of these are hormonal products that increase test levels, convert into anabolic compounds in the body, and can add muscle mass and give you amazing results in the gym very quickly.
If you want to enhance your performance, whether it’s in the gym or on the court, prohormones can help you become the best. But just a quick warning: many professional sports leagues test for prohormones and can be cause for disqualification. Be careful.
How to Take Prohormones
If you’re just starting off, I highly suggest you do plenty of research before you ever take a prohormone. Prohormones are not for beginners, and having a proper post cycle therapy and on cycle support ready before you ever start your cycle is extremely important (see: A Beginners Guide to Prohormones)
Most prohormones are taken in cycles of 4-8 weeks, depending on the strength and potency of the compound you’re using. For example, if you’re using a prohormone like Halodrol, you can take it for extended periods of time because of little to no side effects.
However, a stronger prohormone like Superdrol is very toxic to the liver and should never exceed 4 weeks. First think about the kind of results you would like to achieve…do you want to reduce body fat and become as strong as an ox? Or do you want to pack on pounds of muscle and look as vascular as the incredible hulk?
Your goals will depend on what prohormone you take, and for how long. Also, many people use prohormone stacks to increase the results they get on cycle. That is, use multiple compounds at the same time, so that you can achieve results like building muscle and losing body fat at the same time.
Some prohormones stack better than others, and typically the milder, non methylated prohormones are the most ideal for this.
Where to Buy Prohormones
There are many places you can buy prohormones at online. They’re pretty much everywhere, including Amazon. Some of the top prohormones are sold at places like A1Supplements, Ironmaglabs, and Blackstone Labs.
These places are constantly selling some of the strongest prohormones on the market, and even got amazing prohormone sales that offer free shipping and up to 10-15% off some of their best selling products from time to time.
Just remember, though, that most of these products are barely legal and really don’t stay on the market for longer than a few years. If you’re interested in trying any of these compounds yourself, I recommend you either start a cycle as soon as you can, or buy a few bottles that you can set aside for sometime in the future if they’re ever discontinued.
Side Effects of Prohormones
Prohormones come with many side effects since they work by effecting the body’s hormonal levels. A proper PCT should always include an estrogen blocker or aromatase inhibitor, which basically means that it will block the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.
If you’re not careful, side effects like gynecomastia, water weight gain, bloating, and at the worst case, liver failure can occur if you don’t know what you’re doing. That is why I always recommend people use a liver protector like TUDCA, as well as pharmaceutical grade estrogen blockers like Letrozole or Nolvadex.
