“Now everyone is starting off at a different level so depending on your last cycle adjustments can be made to fit each individual,” according to Piana. “It can be scaled down or up hopefully people can handle this part on their own. For the more advanced that are doing much higher doses of GH my reasoning is anything higher than iu a day will cause the intestines to grow and eventually you will have a growth gut also same goes for using insulin but everyone is free to add on whatever they choose. GH and insulin will put on more size than anything but in my opinion it will ruin the physique!”
