13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)-dien-17-one: 30mg (Max LMG)
2a, 17a-dimethyl-etiocholan-3-one-17b-ol: 10mg (Superdrol)

Other stuff
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate: 500mg
Bioperine: 5mg

Recommended dosage:
Under 200lbs: Take 1 capsule per day.
Over 200lbs: Take First cap in the morning or early afternoon, Second cap in the evening.

Dosage breakdown:
10-20mg Superdrol - this is a good standalone dosage, although some experienced users have gone as high as 30mg daily. For most users, this is a good range.

30-60mg Max LMG - alas, this is a bit low, since recommended dosage ranges from 75-100mg daily. Base don that, I'm going to assume the MED (minimum effective dose) is 75mg. In such a case, you won't get additional benefit from 60mg a day, and most certainly won't from 30mg.

See? This shows the achilles heel of pre-made stacks. You can't make a single pill that doses between 75-100mg. You have to make a 25mg and the user would need 3-4 a day.

If you're going to combine that with Superdrol and you want a top end of 20mg, then you need to make each cap a 5mg dosage.

Like most premades, this stack doesn't offer enough granularity when it comes to dosage control. Too bad, becasue this would be a good mix. A very strong methyl and a pretty strong non-methly. I bet this would be a bear when it comes to the old titties though....

Oh yeah, the L-tartrate is simply a salt used as an additive in to facilitate absorption of another substance. So by combining L-carnitine with the salt L-tartrate, it's supposed to make it easier for your body to absorb the L-carnitine.

13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2,5(10)diene-17-one (Max LMG)

Trade names include Max LMG, Tren, Trena, AKA Methoxygonadiene

Common dosage: 60-120mg daily
Common cycle length: 4-6 weeks
Methylated: No
Half-Life:Long (48-72 hours)

Not a 17aa steroid so liver toxicity is not as harsh as with 17aa steorids, however the ethyl group on C-18 may make it slightly more toxic than a non-ethylated steroid (while increasing its oral bio-availability). Max LMG is progestin designed to give solid gains in muscle mass with low water retention. The progestational activity of methoxygonadiene (once it is converted to its active metabolites) is considered to be slightly stronger than nandrolone. This means muscle building with Max LMG in your cycle gives you higher quality hardening effects. Since it acts as anti-progesterone, there are decreased negative effects of extra estrogen and increased libido.

It is legal because it is a progestin, like trenbolone, nandrolone, methyltrienolone and Methyl-Dien. As a progestin, Max LMG is structurally related to the pill RU-486 and as such acts as an "anti-progesterone". This results in decreased estrogen-like effects and an increase in libido.

Research suggests that Max LMG has a half-life of about 6 hours, though it appears that it is closer to 10 hours based upon plasma levels maintained in test subjects. It is not a 17-alkylated analog and has a low potential for liver toxicity.

Most users report good results at a dosage of 75mg a day.

Some comments from users:

"As stated, appears to be an all out bulker. Great for size and strength, but notorious for bloat and the potential for gyno. I've also read that it kills libido pretty quickly. Some of the makers claimed that the libido would remain fine if one didn't use too large of daily doses though. I remember seeing people getting decent gains from 40mg - 50mg (depending on the product). It looks like most guys go up to 75mg though."

"Would be my favorite if it didn't make my nips start burning by the end of week two. Rapid weight gain on it plus the fact its not methyl are pluses. Just keep in mind i've seen many complain about it easily aggrevating gyno."

In the stomach acid, the C-3 methoxy group is rapidly cleaved off and the double bond on the A ring at C-2 is lost. At this point, a 3-oxo is formed and a metabolite known as 13b-ethyl-nor-androstenedione is created, which is chemically similar to norbolethone, and probably where this compound gets most of its effects.

13b-ethyl-nor-androstenedione is about equal to testosterone in anabolic potency, yet less androgenic. This would make this compound fairly light on the hairline with minimal chance of acne or other androgenic side-effects.

With low androgenic activity, this compound may negatively affect the libido and erectile function. The lack of androgenic potency and progestational effects make this compound likely to cause gyno symptoms. Users could stack this compound with testosterone or one of its non-aromatizing metabolites to preserve DHT levels and possibly prevent these side-effects.

Users experience rapid weight gain from this compound partly due to subcutaneous water retention from the progestational activity. Therefore the overall gains from this compound may lead to a bloated appearance. Because of the progestational effects, users should avoid stacking this compound with other gyno aggravating compounds. Max LMG can aromatize to estrogen in small amounts, however not to any significant degree, therefore an aromatase inhibitor would provide little protection against this compound's side-effects.

Max LMG immediately converts in the stomach into a 13b alkylated compound (13b ethyl nor androstenedione) and then makes it all the way to the liver because it is ethylated to survive first pass, and is converted into 13b ethyl nor testosterone, a steroid similar to norbolethone aka the clear.

2a-17a-di-methyl-etiocholan-3-one,17b-ol (Superdrol)

Yet another nomenclature for Superdrol.

2a,17a-di-methyl-etiocholan-3-one,17b-ol and 2a,17a-dimethyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one are the same exact compounds written differently. They are both methylated at the 2a and 17a positions, both have a hydroxyl (alcohol, -OH) group at the 17b potion, and a ketone at position three. Just one attempts to use the term etiocholan, which isn't used too often.

A derivative of Drostanolon which is the 2-methylated form of DHT, so it has typically been used for reducing body-fat and water retention, while increasing muscle hardness and density. There should be no estrogen conversion with this compound, because it's 5a-reduced and A-ring alkylated on top of that. Also, the parent compound is used exclusively as an anti-neoplastic for metastatic breast cancer, so it's a strong anti-e with mild diuretic effects.

Has an extremely favorable Q (anabolic/androgenic) ratio. Q ratio = 20 (m-1-t is between 5-16, depending on assay). 20% as androgenic as 17a-MT oral (the reference standard); (m-1-t is 100-220% as androgenic as 17a-MT, for comparison). Superdrol is 400-800% as anabolic as the reference standard (17a-MT); (m-1-t is 910-1600% comparatively). The low androgenic profile of Superdrol will keep (androgenic) side-effects to a minimum.

Some users complain of delayed gyno up to 6 months after a good PCT. It's effective at 20mg, and usually provides very dry lean mass gains. Strength gains are moderate, but not usually maintainable post cycle. A very harsh compound, and should not be taken lightly. A good PCT and support supplement regime is essential.

Bioprene

Bioperine is a standardized extract from the fruits of Piper nigrum L (black pepper) or Piper longum L (long pepper). It contains a minimum piperine content of 95% compared to the 3-9% and 3-5% found in raw forms of Piper nigrumand and Piper longum respectively. Bioperine may be administered with various nutrients to assist in the uptake and utilization of those nutrients.

Bioperine is the only source of piperine to obtain patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. Bioperine is also the only source of piperine to undergo clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use. When Bioperine was administered orally to healthy humans in a dose of 5 mg per person per day, the serum levels of different tested nutrients significantly increased by up to 60%.

L-Carnitine Fumarate

L-Carnitine is an amino acid found in skeletal and heart muscle. It functions primarily to support fat utilization by acting as a carrier of fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are oxidized and converted to
energy.

L-Carnitine also facilitates the removal of short and medium chain fatty acids from the mitochondria that accumulate during normal metabolic processes. In studies, L-carnitine demonstrated the ability to promote oxygenation of heart muscle, maintain healthy enzyme activity, support cardiovascular energy, enhance exercise recovery, and maintain healthy lipid metabolism.

Fumarate (fumaric acid) is also naturally present in the body. Fumaric acid plays a key role in generating energy. Combined, l-carnitine and fumarate provide dual support
for energizing the heart and skeletal muscles.

Studies indicat L-carnitine promotes exercise recovery by moderating tissue damage, decreasing production of free radicals, and reducing muscle soreness following exercise.
