Well if your going to honestly not drink I would think about using M1T for 4 weeks. You can start out at minimum dose 10mg, and go up to 30mg depending on how your body reacts to it. That is the most powerful 1 test you can take. You can get it at www.1fast400.com for $9.99. You will not get anything that good for a price even close to that anywhere else. If you are not interested in a Methylated product I would use 1-TU. That product worked good for me and its not methylated.
I think 1-AD is a better choice first time around.
1-AD is a diol and is bio-active prior to conversion. It's also much more orally active, and if you're only doing pills, it's what you want. And if he doesn't want to run 4-AD, then he really should steer away from 1-Test, IMO.
Also, users report similar gains and less sides. With all the hype (much of it legit, granted) surrounding 1-test, many people have written off 1-ad as an inferior PH, and that's not the case.
I think the price factor is a big reason why many just go with 1-Test.
Brodus has a point that M1T is not really a beginner PH at all. Its very effective, but as with most effective orals there are effective sides too. I didn't get much in the way of sides but that is not the case for most guys. For your first time 1-TU is a great choice. You can cycle that 4-6 weeks easy.
My first real PH cycle other then the "original" hyped up andro was a 4 week cycle of 1-AD. I did gain 9lbs in a month from it, but it was almost all water. The strength increased too, but just as the weight it was gone in no time. I just finished a 4 week MethylD/1-TU cycle 4 weeks ago and gained 18lbs and strength gains through the roof. I have lost 4 lbs since(currently on last days of 6OXO and started ECA stack a week ago) and that is probably only because I am trying to cut some BF before I start my 1st cycle on gear. The best part about it is my strength gains have not dropped, and in all honesty I am still gaining strength regularly. Obviously not as much as when on the cycle but I am still sqeezing out an extra rep here and there, and adding more lbs to my lifts. So IMO I didn't lose anything after getting off which is AWESOME!. I would say that 12lbs of that 18 came from the 1-TU
I weight right now about 168 last time i checked and i want to get inot the 175 range. I have read that people that have taken 1ad have retained all the musle gained. I am not sure what my BF is but its f*cking low. I just want to get bulkier and I want to take the correct dossages . So everyone here recomend 1 tu over 1 ad . if I take just 1 tu ...what should the dosages be and for how long. What about the dosages for 60x0 and for how long.
I would recommend 1-TU™ by Nutrex. Take it just how the bottle says to. Thats what I did. I know people that have doubled that dose to get better results. I would not recommend this to you. I havn't done it and don't know if its worth the money, or what side effects will pop up with that high of a dose. Its an awesome product IMO. I would do it again anyday.
