Max LMG is a progestin based prohormone. It has been cloned considerably over the years, however the correct nomenclature for a Max LMG based compound is 13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)-diene-17-one. Max LMG is not a 17aa steroid so liver toxicity is not as harsh as with 17aa steorids, however the ethyl group on C-18 may make it slightly more toxic than a non-ethylated steroid (while increasing its oral bio-availability). Max LMG is progestin designed to give solid gains in muscle mass with low water retention. The progestational activity of Max LMG (once it is converted to its active metabolites) is considered to be slightly stronger than nandrolone. Max LMG should be reserved for bulking due to water retention and possible bloating, it’s seldom used solo and is often part of a bulking stack in conjunction with a more potent methylated compound.
Results of Max LMG
Max LMG is a bulking prohormone through and through, expect very wet gains with weight loss post cycle due to bloating. Most feedback suggests excellent size and strength gains, however LMG truly shines when stacked with a methylated slightly more potent designer steroid/pro-hormone. Gains are user dependent some users may experience more size gains while others more strength gains and some an equal distribution of both. Gains in the 7-8lbs range, however some gains may simply be bloat which will be lost post cycle.
Dosing of Max LMG
There are a lot of possible length / dosage combinations with Max LMG, with the most common dosage being 100mg daily, cycles are anywhere from 4 to 7 weeks in length with 6 weeks being the most common. Advanced users can experiment with dosages in upwards of 150mg, however, if stacking with another compound adjust the dosage accordingly. Like most other steroids/pro-hormone for the effects to be in full gear it may take several weeks and that is the case with Max LMG as well, expect results by the third week. Dosages should be split by 6-8 hours as the half life for this compound is between 6 and 8 hours.
Recommend cycle layout for good results with manageable risk of side effects
Cycle Layout (6 Weeks):
Week 1: 75mg / per day
Week 2-6: 100mg / per day
On lifting days it’s recommended to take a dosage roughly one hour before starting your gym session, in some cases taking a dosage before bed may have a negative impact on sleep, so take this into consideration. In addition, it’s generally a good idea to take each dosage with EFA’s (i.e fish oil) in order to enhance absorption, it’s also recommended to consume 16+ ounces of water at each dosage
Possible side effects
Max LMG is an oral based prohormone that’s processed by the liver, Max LMG is NOT a methylated prohormone and thus is considered relatively liver safe. Despite being a relatively mild compound Max LMG falls into the moderate category in terms of side effects, mostly as it’s a progestin therefore prolactin sides can be a concern, avoid stacking with other progestins. The occurrence rate of side effects while using Max LMG would be considered moderate, middle of the road in terms of sides, however they’re completely user unique, some users may not experience any side effects, while other users will experience a combination of sides.
ALL steroids and prohormones can negatively impact blood pressure, lipid values, estrogen, cholesterol levels and will put stress on the bodies endocrine system, there is also additional side effects (discussed shortly) that can also present themselves, however in most cases they’re typically minor and a slight inconvenience.
- Bloating / Water Retention.
- Hair shedding
- Aggravation of existing Gyno.
- Puffy / Sensitive Nipples
- Joint Discomfort
- Back Pumps (Dull pain in back after/during workouts)
- Decreased Libido/Improved Libido (common)
- Increased aggression, head aches, flushing and various other sides can happen as well.
