Methyl 1 AD or Alpha One (Methyl-1-Etiocholenolol-Epietiocholanolone) is one of the strongest prohormones/anabolic designer steroids on the over the counter market today, therefore cycles are typically very short with three weeks being the recommended and most common cycle length. It’s known to have some conversion to M1T (Methyl-1-Testosterone) as Methyl 1 AD/Alpha One is a precursor to M1T, however legit information regarding the rate of conversion is unknown but most educated estimates are in the 15-20% range. With that said, Methyl 1 AD is an already active steroid therefore regardless of conversion to M1T it’s plenty sufficient on it’s own without factoring in conversion.
Methyl 1 AD is certainly NOT for first time pro-hormone and steroid users, it is recommended that users have at least 2 successful cycles under their belt before considering Alpha One. It should also be notedthat Alpha One is a ‘one-run’ product, meaning, when the current supply runs out, that’s it…. so stock up!
Use of Methyl 1 AD
Methyl 1 AD is one of the strongest compounds available on the OTC market, it’s generally recommended to start with a lower dosage, asses tolerance and then slowly increase it to the desired range, assuming side effects are tolerable. Our dosing layout is unique to the user depending on experience, Methyl 1 AD cycles are most commonly 3 weeks in length, however advanced users typically run 4 week cycles, it’s recommended to keep the fourth week as optional depending on side effects. Below are dosing recommendations.
Assuming you have experience with strong compounds
Week 1: 40mg / per day
Week 2-4: 60mg / per day
Assuming this is your first strong cycle
Week 1: 20mg / per day |
Week 2-3: 40mg / per day (Final week can be bumped to 60mg if sides tolerable)
Assuming this is your first cycle
Methyl 1 AD is not recommended for first timers.
Dosages above 60mg per day are not recommended as the added benefit may be negligible compared to the added sides at higher than common dosages.
Methyl 1 AD works very quickly, the majority of users begin to experience the effects of this comound typically within the first week (or shortly thereafter), it has a relatively short half life (5-6 hours) therefore dosages should be equally split with about five hours between each dose, ideally starting with the first dosage in the morning. 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 Alpha One dosage.
This is an example cycle from start to finish to give you an idea how it should look, assumes you’re using Nolvadex. From start to finish our properly designed cycle will take approximately 10 weeks total.
- Week 1-2: Pre-load Cycle Support
- Week 3: Cycle Support | Methyl 1 AD 20mg
- Week 4-5: Cycle Support | Methyl 1 AD 40mg
- Week 6: Cycle Support | Nolvadex 30mg
- Week 7-8: Cycle Support | Nolvadex 20mg | PCT Assist (6 Caps).
- Week 9: Cycle Support | Nolvadex 10mg | PCT Assist (6 Caps).
- Week 10: PCT Assist (6 Caps).
Advanced users running four weeks with higher dosages, simply adjust for the fourth week and higher dosing.
Results of Methyl 1 AD
Results will vary based upon the dosage, experience, diet and many other factors, Methyl 1 AD will generally provide exceptional strength gains and good size gains. Because some mild fluid retention is common on Methyl 1 AD it’s typically used strictly for bulking purposes and those on a clean bulking diet will yield the best results.
Gains with Methyl 1 AD can range quite a bit, however the most common gains are in the 8-12lb range with exceptional increases in strength. Gains in upwards of 20lbs have been reported and it’s certainly not uncommon for people to post gains in the 12-15lbs range as well.
Possible side effects of Methyl 1 AD
The occurrence rate of side effects while using Methyl 1 AD would be from moderately common to very common, however they’re completely user unique, some users may not experience any side effects, while other users will experience a combination of sides. It should be noted that the majority of these side effects are simply of inconvenience more so than a possible health affecting issue and for the most part can be resolved through simple supplementation.
- Decreased Libido/Sexual Function
- Lethargy / Fatigue
- Increased hair growth / Increased hair shedding
- Puffy / Sensitive Nipples
- Joint Discomfort
- Back Pumps (Dull pain in back after/during workouts)
- Water Retention / Estrogen Related Sides
- Increased aggression, head aches, flushing and various other sides can happen as well.
Post Cycle Therapy (PCT)
Possibly the most important item on the menu is post cycle therapy, when taking a foreign substance that creates testosterone your body begins to shut down it’s normal production, when you stop taking a pro-hormone or steroid compound your body needs a way to jump start it’s own natural production again, while limiting endocrine system stress, this is why we need post cycle therapy.
You should begin your PCT regiment immediately after your pro-hormone or designer steroid cycle, it should begin the day after your last dosage of Methyl 1 AD. PCT regiments are typically 4-6 weeks depending on the type of compound being used, user and type of PCT.
- Week 1 Nolvadex 30mg
- Week 2-3 Nolvadex 20mg & PCT Assist
- Week 4 Nolvadex 10mg & PCT Assist
- Week 5 PCT Assist
