Cutting Stack: BPI Sports A-HD and Solid

I did this stack sometime before I started this blog and was surprised with the results. I started taking it and found that I was leaning out. I hadn't changed my diet and had friends keep telling me that my face was getting leaner. The weird thing was that my weight was not changing but my face and body was looking leaner.

Cool huh.

My favorite BPI Sports products are still Blox and Super Pro but as far as visual results this combo beats them both.

A-HD by itself did nothing for me but I've met guys that love it stand alone. I will probably try A50 in acouple of months.

BPI Sports calls it the Get Hard Stack and it seems to work. I have no idea how because I've searched and searched and can't find anything as far as studies goes.

This is all anecdotal or "Bro Science". Give it a try.

I am always afraid of long-term use of anything that hasn't been used or tested with human subjects. So be cautious.

BPI recommends that you take 1 Solid in the morning and 1 A-HD in the afternoon. I think most days that I took both in the morning.

Here's what's in it.

A-HD™  (formally Arimedex HD™)
(they give a bunch of chemical names but it's really common stuff)

Safflower Seed Extract or Carthamus tinctorius CHEMICAL NAME: (3s,4s)-4-[(3,4-dimethoxyphenyl)methyl]-3-hydroxy-3-[[3-methoxy-4-[(2s,3r,4s,5r,6r)-3,4,5-trihydroxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-2-yl]oxy-phenyl]methyl]oxolan-2-one

Flax Seed Lignan CHEMICAL NAME: (2r,3r)-2,3-bis[(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]butane-1,4-diol;(2r,3r,4s,5s,6r)-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxane-2,3,4,5-tetrol

Pterostilbene - Similiar to Resveratrol CHEMICAL NAME: 4-[(e)-2-(3,5-dimethoxyphenyl)ethenyl]phenol

Gingerol CHEMICAL NAME: s)-5-hydroxy-1-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-3-decanone

Caffeate (beehive propolis) CHEMICAL NAME: phenethyl(e)-3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)prop-2-enoate

For a really good treatment of this goto What’s In BPI Arimedex? or BPI Sports A-HD (Arimedex) Ingredients: Snake Oil or TheReal Deal? .

Why not just call it these? Instead of giving names that make you think it's a prohormone combination. Whatever, it did give me results when combined with SOLID.

    Found the below on a forum at .

    SOLID™'s dual Anabolic and Androgenic activity results from the fact that it's formulated with a novel class of naturally-occurring compounds...* Compounds which appear to effectively bind to androgen receptors, and modulate protein synthesis and help decrease protein breakdown.* 1 The anabolic actions of androgens are demonstrated through changes in body, plasma amino acid level, and plasma urea level, among other indicators. 4-7

    The physiological (regulation, metabolism, and mechanisms) importance of this dual anabolic and androgenic activity simply cannot be understated.* It is T-H-E key. The key to SOLID™, the key to getting the hardening, definition, strength, and vascular effects you want... and, need, to be contest ready! †*

    † When combined with a proper exercise and nutrition regimen.
