    AAS or IGF?

    hey, guys. This might be a stupid question but figured I'd ask anyway. I was wondering: what are the main differences in using AAS and using something like IGF (LR3)? I realize what AAS does for you and I know that IGF decreases BF and builds muscle, but exactly how "potent" is IGF, as far as mass and strength gains. I guess what I'm asking is, if you were to go on, let's say, a cycle of AAS for lean mass gains, how would it compare to a cycle of IGF (and no other form of gear besides the IGF)?

    Just curious. And please be specific: for example, let's say you would expect to gain 3 lbs. per week on the AAS cycle. How would the stats compare to the straight-IGF cycle (if given that both the AAS and IGF cycles were ran with average dosages)? Thanks a lot guys.

    An IGF-1 LR3 cycle alone won't give you nearly the results of an AAS cycle alone. The best is a combination of the two.

    nice posts. Im interested into hearing the answers.
    As for me I just started a IGF-LR3 and var cycle. So far I'm loving it. But Im only 3 days into the igf and 7 days into the var, so its not exactly full speed yet. But also with igf it is reccommended you do 4 weeks on 4 off

    It's more closely related to growth hormone than slin. HGH causes the liver to produce IGF-1 which in turn is responsible for the majority of the muscle growth you get from HGH. Just using straight IGF-1 LR3 is like a short cut, you don't have to wait a couple of months for the HGH to build substantial enough levels of IGF-1 for muscle growth.
