I'm not qualified to say that would be medically impossible, but I think it strains credulity to think he did that while being handicapped with the testosterone levels of a pre-pubescent child.

It's my understanding that the epitestosterone is produced relatively evenly with testosterone. But when you take synthetic testosterone, it doesn't increase epitestosterone.

Thanks. I thought Novedex and Nolvadex were two different substances, though I thought they were both used by steroid users to prevent growing breasts. They way I heard it, was that Novedex prevents conversion of testosterone to estrogen, and Nolvadex reduced sensitivity to estrogen.

Thanks for the bit about Boldenone. I didn't know that. My knowledge of this stuff just comes from reading snippets of articles and talking to a few doctor friends.
Dude actually you were right about the Novedex thing as well...I was being confused. I blame little sleep and long work-hours. Tho Novedex might raise your testo a bit as well, atleast thats how it's advertised I never tried it myself. Novedex is just a supplement, not a medicine like Nolvadex. My bad.
