    i don't think they can test for lr3 igf-1 cause they test for the bound igf and since lr3 binds very poorly to the igf binding protein.

    yes you can increase strength with igf and burn some fat but i never notice any weight loss cause of increased lbm.

    rodge, cheers for that... can anyone confirm about the drug testing? im pretty sure, but need to be 100% also, what sort of time frame are you talking with regards to seeing results (fat loss/strength increase)?

    thanks in advance

    result happen quit fast as igf should'nt be used longer then 7 weeks in a row.
    and because of hyperplasia,new muscle cels,who can be matured in time you should make some progres after igf cycle either.

    I'm sure they can't really test for igf-1 as of yet. Even if they did test your igf-1 levels after your last injection your normal levels come back pretty fast.

    They can test for IGF levels..... because they might test for GH....

    But do they piss or blood test you? And even if they did blood test, I dont think they would check your IGF levels....

    Thats true but as of now the ncaa doesn't have gh or igf-1 testing procedures. But soon.

    clearly they can test for it from your blood, i am in contact with a lab to get bloodwork, and that was included in one of the packages
