When it comes to cutting, IGF-1 Long R3 is definitely not as potent as classic Human Growth Hormone. This is quite understandable, as we know that this is an activity that is inherent in the Human Growth Hormone molecule itself. Increased lipolyses is, likewise, not dependent on the stimulation of IGF-1 release the same way the anabolic attributes of GH are. That is not to say that IGF-1 is entirely without benefit. Users do still seem to comment that the drug has some noticeable effect as a fat loss agent. It seems to allow them to keep fat mass at bay, even when they are on a high-calorie (bulking) diet. Often they can even lose fat mass and tighten up their physiques while taking the drug during building phases of training, but individual metabolism seems to play a strong role in how noticeable this effect is. It is likely that a shift in the utilization of nutrients towards muscle growth, and not a direct lipolytic effect, is responsible for this, as IGF-1 is inherently more like Insulin (lipogenic) than GH in this regard. We can, therefore, say that IGF-1 is not going to be your number one drug choice for cutting up, but it may still make a good addition to any stack focused on lean muscle mass gains.
When taken on its own, IGF-1 has a short half life. As is, the active duration is only about 10 minutes in the body. Binding proteins added to the compound seem to extend the half-life dramatically. When coupled with IGFBP-3 (IGF binding protein-3), the half-life is extended to between 6 and 16 hours which is a much more usable time duration. This product is very hard to get ahold of as well. Most people will probably never even see a vial of this stuff. It is only made by three pharmaceutical companies in the world. To get some of this, you have to be either a research student or know someone who knows someone, who knows someone....if you can find it, IGF-1 will cost you between $600-800 per bottle for 50 cc.
presents you another cutting cycle for summer which will make you look hard and solid. As a base we will use testosterone enanthate however you may replace it with testosterone propionate as in some individuals enanthate will make visible water retention but I dont think this is a problem as you dont prepare for the contest, right? 🙂 On the other hand switching to propionate will bring you another headache as you will have to inject it EOD plus you will inject Primobolan ( Methenolone Enanthate) 2-3 times per week so having to inject primo and test propionate will keep you really busy and will not give your injection sites enough time to rest.
