You’ve finally decided to take a walk on the wild side and delve into the world of prohormones! But, you’re not quite sure where or how to start. You’ve no doubt heard about the powers of a prohormone known as 1-Andro, but have no clue what it does or how much to take. That’s where we come in! We’re here to streamline the data and provide you with the bare essentials so you know what it is, how it works, and how much you need to reap serious gains while on your cycle!
What is 1-Andro?
1-Andro is THE prohormone on the market today when looking to crank up the intensity from your “natty” gains. 1-Andro (a.k.a. 1-DHEA) is a metabolite of DHEA, a naturally occurring hormone in the human body. 1-Andro undergoes a two-step conversion process, first converting to 1-Androstenediol (1-AD) and then ultimately converting to the target anabolic of 1-Testosterone.
Gains on 1-Andro
The primary reason that 1-Andro has become THE go to prohormone is a recent Texas A&M Study using 17 resistance-trained men documented that daily administration of 330mg 1-Andro was comparable to a cycle of 300mg a week of injectable testosterone enanthate! This is quite the statement to make, as researchers are essentially saying 1-Andro can yield results virtually identical to those of black market anabolics!
There’s few different ways to tackle the beast that is 1-Andro depending on your training level, age, and experience with prohormones in general.
Prohormone Newbie If you’ve never ventured into the realm of prohormones, you’re going to want to start with The 1. It provides 115mg per tablet of pure unadulterated 1-Andro using the Cyclosome™ Delivery System. The 1 provides the perfect “gateway” to learn how you respond to 1-Andro and monitor the cascade of gains that await! Dosing: 1 tablet, 2x per day with a meal
Experienced but still learning Spartan Mass is ideal for the intermediate to early “advanced” prohormone user. After learning how your body reacts to a single prohormone (assuming you previously just ran The 1), you’re ready to kick things up a notch and that’s exactly where Spartan Mass comes in. It combines the power of 1-Andro with 4-Andro yielding a powerful anabolic combo that utilizes the same enzymes in the body (3bHSD and 17bHSD). On its own, 4-Andro isn’t as potent as 1-Andro, but it can convert to testosterone via a two-step process involving these enzymes. As such, stacking the two together makes for some incredible gains any intermediate user will gladly take! Dosing: 1 tablet, 2x per day with a meal
The Grizzled PH Vet For those of you who have run the gamut of training programs, diet protocols, and various cycles, you’re ready for the ultimate prohormone stack of Spartan mass + The 1. The reason this is true “vet’s” stack is that not only are you getting the power of 1-Andro and 4-Andro from Spartan Mass, but you’re kicking in an additional 115mg of 1-Andro each day to really crank of up the gains train. Be forewarned, this is a true “pros” prohormone stack as it is incredibly powerful and will tax your body considerably. Dosing: 1 tablet Spartan Mass with Breakfast, 1 tablet The 1 with Lunch, and 1 tablet Spartan Mass with Dinner
About the Dosage
You probably noticed that the landmark Texas A&M study used a 330mg dose of 1-Andro to yield significant gains in lean mass and ridiculously large increases in strength, and wondering why you don’t get that same dose in any of these options. The answer is simple, he Texas A&M uses straight 1-Andro without any notable delivery enhancement. Sparta Nutrition’s line of prohormones uses the premier delivery technology available today in Cyclosome™, which should yield significantly better absorption than what the A&M study participants had. Therefore, it’s possible to see the same results as the study with a lower dose due to the enhanced absorption and bioavailability that Cyclosome™ offers.
1-Andro is a serious ingredient that brings serious gains. When you’ve exhausted all venues for making natural gains and ready to elevate yourself to true Spartan status, invest your time, energy, and money wisely with the premier prohormone in the game in 1-Andro.
