HGH...will it help with size and strength w/o Anabolics

I have used anabolics and have had great success at gaining size and strength. However, I have never used HGH because of cost and lack of a supplier. I am now considering HGH if I can find a legit supplier, but not sure if it would be beneficial for size and strength gains without the use of anabolics too.

Welcome to TID!

In general, I did not experience any significant anabolic effects while taking GH. I suppose at crazy high doses, there may be some anabolic effects, but I noticed it more in an aesthetic nature, where it gave me some increased fullness and roundness to the muscle I had already developed.

I like GH, but if you're looking to increase size and strength, I would stick to a simple test regimen. You'll get much more bang for the buck.

Understand...I have [email protected]#ed up my natural test production from years of anabolic abuse and now trying to get my body producing again. So, I trying to stay away from synthetics. I guess I am really just looking for something that will provide me energy levels and not so much size and strength. If it gave me size and strength, that would just be an added benefit. Thanks for the info.

HGH is great for overall health but not sure how much raw energy you will get.

you might feel more rested at times and higher rate of recovery but yes stacking with test and other gear is most synergistic and you will feel the most energy stacking the HGH.

I honestly was never a big fan of HGH. I've taken it several times at different doses and lengths each time. But the sides I always got of
joint pain, carpel tunnel, severe swelling of my knees from fluid retention, severe fatigue for the first few months, just never seemed to offset the price and length I had to take it to get beneficial results.
With that being said at my age (57) I never say never. Still may run it low dose in the future with my TRT. Most likely not until I retire in 5 years.

Thanks for the feedback. Maybe I stick to TRT and stack it with HGH. Something to think about.

Thank you for the response. I have never done HGH So not sure what to expect. I am 57 as well and may need to stack with TRT for some gains. Was hoping to have some benefits from HGH especially for cost. I understand it is very expensive.

I am running it wit the intent for fat loss. I do not believe a great choice for strength and size short of high dose and insulin.

I am currently running
6iu ed
50mg tren a ed
50mg test c ed
40mg var ed

A pretty decent stack for far loss and maintaining size and strength. Do I feel the GH is essential with this? Nope but a nice addition.

While HGH doesn’t itself cause cancer (it’s not carcinogenic) it does increase IGF which can extend the life and reproduction of cells.

That means that if you used to be a smoker, or have a history of cancer or even a high rate of cancer in your family, you run a real risk of cancer yourself.

I smoked for over 20 years in my younger days…… No hgh for me.
