Currently Prepping for a show – 00:50

I’m currently prepping for a show a little over 10 weeks out and I’m currently taking 100mg of Tren E, 100mg of Test E, and one Arimidex every other day. I’m planning to switch to Tren A about 5 weeks out and add in winstrol tabs. I’m currently having a bit of trouble with some gyno symptoms, mainly just hard/sore nips 

So my question is, what Blackstone products or other substances can add to help both from a physique stand point to continue to hold on to muscle/possibly gain while cutting fat and also minimize or eliminate the negative side effects I’m experiencing?

Also, am I being to much of a bitch with my dosages? I know its all dependent on the person so to give you an idea, I’m 5’9″, 197lbs, and about 8-9% BF. 

Chosen1 pct? – 04:25

Hi this is Achilles_the_greatt again. I’ve been using recomp rx and glycolog the past 2 weeks and am liking the results. I’m eager to try other products such as chosen one but have never taken prohormones before so I would like to know what I’m getting myself into before I try. After a cycle of chosen one, should I use PCT? If so, how long does PCT last? Are there any side effects? Would any gains be lost after I go off cycle? 

Keto in Mexico? – 06:32

I eat Keto but will be going to Mexico in November. I’m not planning on going crazy but enjoying myself while there. 25th Anniversary! What are your thoughts on using Glycolog 1-2 times a day and then following up with your Evaporate for fluid retention?  I will usually put on 3-5 pounds of water after a carb-heavy weekend. 

Apple Cider Vinegar – 07:21

I again want start out this email by saying that you have no idea how much I appreciate that you do this and everything else you do for us. I will never stop saying thank you. I am loving my progress on Project PJ Supplement Stack. 

Question 1What are your thoughts on Apple cider vinegar? If you’re a fan do you think that people should take it at night or in the morning and if they take it in the morning I’m assuming they should take it after their cardio?

 Question 2 …would you recommend someone train different and recommend a different form of cardio if they’re on carb cycling or keto

Thanks again.  

P.S. Josh I love watching your stories… you are hysterical

Advise on fitness journey! – 09:08

Looking to lose fat and tone.  I am taking 2 iu hgh and Clen 5 days on 2 days off. I have Clen in 60. I usually take 90 and then up to 120.  I’ve added in the recomp 3 times a day and glycolog one a day at a high carb meal.  Not sure how long to do that for.  Or if there is a better combo?  I was 130 when I looked my best, and have gained and have extra loose fat and skin.. lower body is my problem area. Definitely still need to continue to eat clean and train.  Wanted your expert opinion of best way to help lose fat and tone? 

Supps for my goal – 11:25

Thanks for the info you put out every week. I found your company during the “Beat PJ” too late to be part of the contest, but used it for motivation to finally get my ass in gear. I’m 36, 6’1,” and with the help of Blackstone products have gone from 237 to 211 and counting. My goal is to get to 200 and be in better shape (more muscle mass) than I was in high school. For supps I take:

Morning before work:

4 Apex Male

2 Recomp

1 Epicat

1 Anogenin

1 ViperRx

1 Trojan

Evening before bed:

4 Apex Male

2 Recomp

1 Epicat

1 Anogenin

3 Growth

1 Trojan

I also throw in a single recomp on occasion with my Dust preworkout.

I notice some bottles say clinically dosed, and I recall a podcast where you said bottle dosages take into account people who can’t help but over do the supps. What items in my stack can I up for more results?

Does apex increase free or total T?

A friend mentioned Ksm 66 to me, can it be combined with it?

How does Halo Elite compare to your pro hormones? Is there concern for hair loss? Could it be added to my current stack or would it replace something like anogenin?

Is it possible paraburn is more effective for some people than ViperRx? I hit a plateau about the same time I made the switch over to Viper and was curious.

When should I start Recomp? – 16:02

I’m currently 11 weeks out tibsaturday, this might sound dumb but when’s a good time to start running recomp? I’m in school so I’m budgeting but will make room for this product to show everyone my results and that it works. Thanks M’Lord

What to do about Gyno – 16:29

Hello pj, i have a question as far as gyno that i got from a tren cycle. I stopped lifting for a while and was 260lbs then about a year ago i got back into it and shredded off 40lbs to see if it was chest fat or gyno. Right now i sit at about 218 give or take and everything on my body is somewhat toned besides my bottom chest like under the nipple. That being said i think i do have small gyno. Im currently testing product from steel supps cause u said on ur cardio q and a that they are a good company so my question to you are: 

Can small gyno be shrinked or reverse?

Nolvadex, arimidex or letro to try and reverse/shrink it ?

Can it be taken by itself ?

How many mg and for how long ?

BSL Jersey – 17:50

Would you consider releasing a BSL football jersey for football season….I have my old Species, BSL and GASP ones but obviously would prefer to represent with a BSL one…..

New Halo Elite vs Old – 18:07

Are there any differences between the new Halo Elite and the previous version?

New Anti-Estrogen – 18:15

I am very excited for the new anti estrogen product, when will it be available?

Stack Progress and Random Questions – 22:04

Fucking stoked that y’all answered my questions I really appreciate it! Couldn’t believe that Josh remembered me, that shows the absolute dedication that the members of Blackstone have. 

I am in the legion now and it seems to be growing consistently, I have enjoyed being able to reach out and communicate with fellow Blackstone ballers. In your opinions, how is the legion doing and what are your goals for it in the next year?

I’m now a redneck in the north and about to have my first real snow experience, have either of you ever skied or snowboarded? 

I know the muscle boys listen to music working out, bout time to update that Spotify isn’t it? What’s your go to get pumped song if you have one?

PJ I have been posting my content during the times that you specified and using the hashtags that reach out to the most users while I gain my followers on Instagram. Are there any small tricks that you haven’t mentioned before that could help?

Here are my before and after stack pictures, I started out weighing 210lbs and finished off at 236. Very impressed with the results and strength gain, it was immense! I ran Brutal force, abnormal, Metha quad and chosen one for 12 weeks straight along with gear support and eradicate. The last 4 weeks I added halo to the stack because it had just came out. I believe next time I’m going to double up the dosage to see the results, what do you guys think?

Thanks for everything guys until next time

Loyalty is everything,

Milk Thistle – 30:28

Thank you for an awesome podcast and for the return of cardio Q+A. Mega motivation and I can’t wait to jump into next year’s transformation contest. 

Anywhoo, I read that many cycle support products include milk thistle (except Gear Support #gearsupport20) but that milk thistle clears the liver too much, making orals almost useless. Can you speak at all on that? 

Insecure about being shirtless – 31:31

I’m at 7% bodyfat with ripped abs. I’m still insecure about taking my shirt off at the beach to impress women. What should I do? Should I go down to 2%?

My First Cycle – 38:20

Hey pj I have been thinking a lot about running my first cycle and finally decided to go ahead with it. 

Was wondering if a test only cycle cycle is good at 250 mg test ethanate per week? Or should I just go with 500 a week? And also when should I start pct? Right after the cycle or should I wait for a bit?

I have also decided to use HCG at 500iu’s during the cycle and nolvadex as pct at 40mg for 2 weeks and 20 mg for another 2.


Leg Training & Fasted Cardio – 41:02

Thank you for all that you do and for taking the time in answering questions. One day I aspire to be part of your legion and will not stop until I’m there. I want to ask you a little about leg training and fasted cardio. What’s the best workout for max growth on the wheels? Fasted cardio pros and cons?

Questions on Weight Loss – 42:37

I have a few questions about weight loss. It started back in January 2018 when I joined in the beat pj contest. I started out at 400lbs at age 36 and as of today I am 306lbs. I am very happy with my transformation. But I feel like I have hit the wall with cutting the fat down. My last BMI reading was

Fat 32.7% and BMI 39.7%

Right now I am eating 2700 to 3000 calories a day with my macros goals at Carbohydrates-173g

fat -92g


Now this is daily targets

Gym wise I am going about 4-5 times A week adding in cardio doing 20-30 mins from bike to treadmill walking and lifting weights as well. I keep it to no more then that due to me moving a lot at my job due to running a warehouse I am alway walking around and lifting things.

Supplment wise I am taking

Recomp rx

Halo elite







Glycolic log when I have carbs over 40g

Whey 3

Juiced up

Was thinking about adding in apex male to this stack. Don’t know if I should.

What do you think I could change to help move some lbs would like to get to 290 have not been there in 5yrs in my weight.

Now I can’t add any hard supplements due the wife and I doing IVF. Now also will any of this effect my swimmers since we are doing IVF.

Thank you for your time and I will never take RedCon1 1 ever again ha ha
