So you’ve been thinking about taking a prohormone? Don’t know where to start? Or you’ve been through multiple cycles and are looking for a second unbiased opinion? If you’re looking for the hyperbole of the bodybuilding forums you were just surfing you might want to hit the back button. But if you want the facts about a prohormone you’ve come to the right place.. Keep reading..
I’m here to act as your personal prohormone curator, not the sales guy from G.N.C around the corner. I do the dirty work for you; compare results, read forums, seek the latest research and then give you my opinion. I’m not a doctor, so take it with a grain of salt and think about your own opinion.
Before starting any prohormone cycle you need to think about the consequences; what you want to get out of the product and what risks it may pose.
Halodrol can definitely help you gain size and strength but like all prohormones and supplements it isn’t a shortcut to gains. Instead it should be a product that helps you train harder and push past your limits. Results depend on the work you put in. Halodrol or any other supplement doesn’t make training easier, it helps you tolerate higher levels of training, optimize your energy and recover faster. Keeping this in mind, users who have supplemented with halodrol, dieted properly and trained hard have seen impressive results. Halodrol results have ranged anywhere from 9-19 pounds of muscle gained during user’s cycles with some guys adding 30-40 pounds to their bench. These results have been gained by different forms of Halo V (halodrol) in supplements like Halo Plex, H-Drol, Halocor and HaloTest 25. With HaloTest 25 one user reported 19 pounds of muscle gains!
Halodrol’s chemical makeup is 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3b, 17b-diol which means it’s a methylated prohormone, basically meaning it’s stronger than a nonmethylated one. In terms of liver harshness HDrol is on the lighter side of the spectrum. But you can definitely still get sides. It is a step up from epistane, which is a good beginner prohormone with fairly few adverse side effects. Halodrol would be a good prohormone for those fairly new to prohormones or a beginner who thinks their body can handle it, even then it’s still strong enough for a hardcore prohormone user. Halodrol has little aromatization so conversion to estrogen and gyno typically are not a problem. Users can experience a high increase in blood pressure which becomes increasingly dangerous if you are mixing Halodrol with other supplements or a strong preworkout, and caution must be exercised when mixing multiple supplements. In some instances users have also experienced back pumps, lethargy, acne, and hair loss. While some have experienced decreased libido other users have said it has increased theirs. For some users Halodrol has caused an increase in HDL (high density lipoproteins, bad cholesterol) and a decrease in LDL (low density lipoprotein, good cholesterol). Monitoring your blood work is advisable and keeping track of lipid levels would be a smart idea.
Halodrol has shown to improve strength and add muscle mass. While this is what every bodybuilder wants there has also been adverse effects reported. Blood pressure increases and cholesterol levels have been reported. When using Halodrol or any other supplement caution should be taken when mixing or stacking supplements. Doctor consultation is highly recommended before starting a cycle and especially if stacking multiple products. Halodrol can definitely help you get the gains you want but with proper diet and a hard workout routine. Like all prohormones the proper care should be taken, with a proper On Cycle Support and Post Cycle Therapy. The sides are there but in terms of prohormones I would say this is one of the safer ones, but you still need to do your own research. If you can live with the possibility of some side effects you may get the gains you’ve been waiting for.
