So I ran two back to back 1mg trials of follistatin 344, designed to inhibit myostatin.
While there's no way for me to say I know for sure that it did just that(inhibit myostatin), I can say that this was one of the first times I was actually blown away by a product in this category (peptides etc.)
I gained about 7 pounds in two weeks and I've never looked leaner. Not to say I think it's all new muscle fiber, some of this is definitely sarcoplasmic fluid retention. But I look almost leaner than when I started and the scale went from 213 to 220 in two weeks. I have been eating big, but that's been the case for at least a month prior to trying this. I have been using Tren E and Test E, I'm not going to hide that fact. But I will say I got down to a cruising dose because returns have fallen and I didn't want to come off just yet. So in other words, the gains I could have been getting from that combo have long since subsided when I ran this trial.
The unique thing about this trial is that i was using it only in my bis and tris. On a couple of occasions I noticed a pump that lasted all day. On one particular day I only shot my left arm. That left arm was markedly pumped throughout the rest of the day, it felt like it had syntherol in it or something, just solid as a rock. I've done the same thing with every single IGF product on the market, several times over hoping to bring up my left arm which is slacking. But this was truly a unique effect.
I normally don't spend a lot of time focused on my "guns" but because of this special investigation I decided to set aside a few times a week to just work on those parts.
Like I said, I have used all IGF products, GH, AAS. Nothing ever gave me a pump like I was getting from this. I couldn't hardly pull my earphones out of my ears.
Anyways, I ran out this week and I'm going to see if there's a residual inhibition of myostatin that continues onward. We shall see.
I will say my tendons did start to get a little achey and that is a side effect of inhibition, so I didn't push the weight, but instead worked on slow movements, extra reps etc.
Overall would I buy it again? Absolutely. But I think the price is out of reach for a regular use thing. I think this would be best used in the middle of a long AAS cycle to rejuvenate the gains. After all AAS has been shown to first reduce myostatin but then after a few weeks myostatin snaps up high and the gains start diminishing. Run a weeklong trial of this and you'll see those kind of virgin gains (even though I know a good portion is water) all over again.
My only complaint is price. I imagine if more and more places begin to offer this compound, there will be a price war and we might see it break into the 75 dollar range. I got in on it when it was just 120 per mg. It's now up to 199. Way too much to spend in my opinion, until we see if long term results come from this.
I think it definitely has a lot of potential as a quarterly booster, every three months run a mg. If someone could afford to run it one week out of each month for a year, I think we'd see some miraculous results.
