    igf is an abbreviation for: insulin -like growth factor

    That being said, further information on it can be located via the search button

    You don't want to do IGF-1 you want LR3 IGF-1 there's a big difference

    Does anyone think its ok to use lr3 igf-1 before reaching ones peak in steroid use ...can it be used as an alternative if one wanted to curtail or terminate AAS use?

    regards,

    igf will cause hyperplasia,you will need AAS to cause hypertrophy.i personally feel igf without ASS is a waste

    Devldog, if hyperplasia is caused by igf-1...one could cause hypertrophy to the newly acquired muscle fibers even after completion of an igf cycle, does this make any sense?

    If you are a first time user of igf-1 like i was this worked great for me.

    30mcg in the morn with 40mg of var. Injections were subq

    any negative sides experienced?
    if you do IM can it be put into just about any muscle group?
    what about subq, anywhere?

    Considering IGF1 hyperplasia, I don't really think it's a waste runned
    alone, that means new muscle cells regardless if it's runned with or
    without AAS, and of course as a "baby" can't get muscular from day
    to nite, so the new muscles cells don't that's why the help from good
    training habits an AAS comes thru.
    By the way DEVLDOG would you say that IGF1 for PCT would be a waste?

    I agree IGF-1 is waste but LR3 IGF-1 isn't, I think it's best to try LR3 alone for the first time to see how your body reacts
