First Show Cut - 5:15
Hey I have a question ? Please help because I think he’s just googling and taking anything he finds.
What’s the best to use for a cut for my boyfriend? Its his first show. I guess he’s doing ruby. . He’s going to be on tren and masteron for 12 weeks but to cut I suggested Winnie Clen and T3. idk if that’s what a guy should be doing that’s just what I would do. You’re knowledgeable on your stuff so I thought to ask you.
For prep he is going to be using Ipamorelin also.
🤦🏻♀️ pls help !!
Also I was thinking about not working with Muscletech anymore. When I met you at the Olympia I didn’t really get to explain to you what we do for Muscletech but I have a team of people that set up demos at the Gym and give out samples and in return the clients leave reviews on some of the websites that sell Muscletech products and we give them free bars or cookies.
Because of the reviews we collect (around 50-100 per demo average) Muscletech comes up very high on the list of most rated products on sites like bodybuilding.com and Amazon.
It’s basically a marketing bribe. They pay my reps two dollars per review and free products and I was curious if you wanted something like that one day for Blackstone. Just a thought. throwing that out there. I’ve had Grayson working for me for a while and he kills it!
Anyway that wasn’t the purpose of the letter it’s basically the first paragraph that’s important right now. Lol
Thanks and I hope to see you in person one day again soon!
Getting Rid of GYNO Without Surgery - 11:24
Hello PJ and fellow Blackstone labs crew. Thank you for all your valuable information and awesome content you provide for your followers. You are a big Inspiration.
I am currently 26 years old and have ran 3 cycles of Test-E,Dbol, and Tren-E. My last cycle was roughly 1 year to 1-1/2 years ago and have been off since. about 4-5 months ago i started to notice my right breast itching and bothering me a little. Went to the doctor recently and was honest about my cycles. He concluded that it was GYNO. Is there a natural way i can get rid of it without having to turn to surgery.
Finding The Right Business Partner - 12:24
Hey PJ and Josh!
I wanted to ask a business related question - I own a marketing agency in Northwest Indiana that's grown to the point where I'm thinking about bringing on a full partner to help handle a lot of the workload and continue to grow everything that I've been doing so far. I've had a few conversations with people who might be interested, but nothing where I'm sprinting off to my lawyer to get paperwork drawn up.
What did you look for as you added and removed business partners over the years? Is it personal chemistry, business acumen, or a mixture of both that helped you decide? Any tips?
Thank you so much for doing the podcast, and huge props to Josh for killing it with the Legion. Hoping to join the ranks soon.
Short and Long Esters - 20:00
Greetings Pj and Josh-
I find the podcast very entertaining and informative. Blackstone Labs puts out amazing products! Thank you for all that you do.
My first question is, Does Blackstone Labs have a forum? I’ve noticed similar questions being asked on the podcast several times. It would be nice if you guys had a forum where some of the o.g. Blackstone followers could answer these questions. It would also be nice for referencing topics that have been covered.
I need a little clarification from some information and research I’ve done. Certain compounds have short esters while others have long esters. What is the recommended cycle for Abnormal, to really get the most out of it?
If and when Equalizer becomes available, what would be the recommended cycle for that product?
Heridad Is Back - 22:10
Hi Josh and Drew! This is the one and only Girlman 🌸🌼, aka HeridaV 😇.
Lord Braun, as a very sexual person, wouldn't you say that sex is potentially very counterproductive? Pls allow me to essplain, I see this aylot as a guy problemo: they mold a big part of their life in order to get sex. Investing time, resources, creativity, etc,, to impress a girl,, instead of investing all these resources to impress a client that will bring business etc etc 🤷. Having sex gives you great feeling of accomplishment, success and importance,, but after it passes the guys are left as they were.
Same with exercise, I see a lot of fitness guys who lose themselves into the feeling of success that gyming brings, but lead a rotting life.
I'm not counting relationships because they can be a partnership that pushes each other to conquer life. Please remember to check email or PM from my secret IG, the moment you say yes to collab I'll check in with Salvagna 🍝 to ask for seconds worth of video I'd need 🤓😙🙏🏻🙏🏻. Thank you lots of love to ya 💞💕💖.
Low T - 27:00
hello and good day to you pj and team blackstone lab, i hope you guys are doing well,
i have been following ask pj braun eps on youtube and i thank you for giving us your precious time to answer our questions.
my question is : im 39, i have been suffering from low energy, sex drive and mood swings for more than a year. i went to see a endocrinologist and he ordered some blood tests(cbc, lipid, sugar, vit profile, sperm analysis, prolactin, cortisol, thyroid, lh, fsh, estradiol, free and total T). all came good except for prolactin, estradiol total test and free test.
prolactin was 15.42 ng/ml normal range for male is between (2.64 - 13.13) ng/ml
estradiol was 94.33 pg/ml normal range for male is ND -39 pg/ml
free T was 11.36 pg/ml normal range for male is between (13.0 - 40) pg/ml
total T was 1.02 ng/ml normal range for male is between(2.41 - 8.27) ng/ml
FSH was 4.26 miu/ml normal range for male is between(1.27 - 19.26) miu/ml
LH WAS 2.53 miu/ml normal range for male is between (1.24- 8.63) miu/ml
now this blood test I did after 4 weeks on rad 140/30mg ED. a year ago I did the same blood tests, estrogen and prolactin was in the normal range, total and free T was a tad better than now but still not in the normal range. the endocrinologist put me on test depot 1g/4ml( testosterone undecanoate) every 2 months for six months than visit him again . i asked him to put me on test E or cyp instead but he refused he said test is test and i shouldn't be picky. i had my first shot 3 days ago was painful and still hurting .
my question is for my next shot can i replace test depot 1g/4ml with test e 250mg or cyp every 10 days or two weeks ? what do you think is better long acting test for TRT with large amount vs same amount but small frequent doses? what is the right amount of TRT to gain muscles for 170 pound, 17% bf with a few years of weight training.
Leaning Out - 30:22
What do you the last two weeks before a contest in terms of diet and workout? Since I’ve started the beat pj contest I’ve lost 12 lbs and actually look bigger. I’m doing HIIT cardio, intermittent fasting, weight training 6 days a week, and eating only Whole Foods. Any tips would be appreciated! All the best to you man!
P.S. I wrote a jingle for Blackstone Labs on instagram: Paulofattraction. I Tagged you in it. Check it out!
Continuing DHEA Question - 34:32
Hey PJ and Josh
This is a continuing question from my last question on DHEA. I am finishing my 8 week cycle and transitioning into PCT. I realized that PCTV contains Arimistane just like Eradicate. Does that mean Eradicate (or Arimistane) does not need to be cycled out? In other words, once the 4 weeks of PCT is over, is there a recommended waiting period before going back on DHEA and Eradicate?
Also, is there a science behind why PCTV has 37.5 mg Arimistane versus Eradicate has 25mg?
I would've texted you but seemed more like an info that other people may want to know too.
Thank you always for everything.
Getting Rid of Loose Skin - 42:05
PJ, shout out to LEGION, got any tips for tightening up loose skin on the stomach area? I've heard about prep H and right now Im using MPA ab gel, it's been workin pretty good along with wearing an ab belt, any more tips would be appreciated. - HAVE PJ do this - (Can I getta WOOOOOOOOO.)
Banned Substances In Sports - 53:35
Good day Mr. Braun, This is Jeremy Creason from podcast episode 3. I first want to say that the advice you gave me worked out very well for my unique medical condition. And I just want to first before anything else, say thank you.
What I was hoping to hear you thoughts about with this email is banned substances in sports and then secondly, just in general.
The in jeopardy GGG - Alvarez fight in May is what mainly pushed me to write to you. The public waits 8 months for a decent boxing match and it might not go down because of 0.6 NG of Clenbuterol that was found in Alvarez's system two maybe three months before the fight.
So my first question would be, can we hear your thoughts about "performance enhancing" drugs in sports just in general?
Second question would be, if you could remove one banned substance from that list in sports, what would it be?
My third question comes from hearing you talk about being raided a podcast or two ago. I can only speak for myself as customer, but I feel that not only did they hurt you, but they hurt all of us as well. With that being my context, if Mr. Braun had the ear of President Democrat or President Republican, not trying to divide the audience, and he or she only had time for you to give him or her a sales pitch for one thing they can do for you, what would it be? Is there a substance that is banned you would like unbanned? Or maybe a medical device or treatment that isn't approved here but is used elsewhere? Just anything within the area of supplements, diet and fitness was I hoping to hear you thoughts on.
Packing On Muscle - 1:02:10
Hello PJ so im doing anabolic diet all meat and carbs on weekends whats the way to get muscles mass on .
Ps im on testosterone cycle
What To Cycle - 1:05:35
Yoooooo what is going on guys,
It’s Benny again with a pretty personal and intensive question. Thank you so much for what you guys do and taking this hour or so out of your week to help out the fans. It truly speaks volumes of the kind of person you both are!
Ok so looking into the future for me I’m going to be working on the road this summer and won’t be able to make it to the gym. To make a long story short my plan is to get back into shape during the fall and then take a good cycle after New Years.
To get some background information. I usually hover around 200 lbs and am 6 foot. I am a hard gainer. Also I’m 26 if that matters. My goal is to grow but stay lean as well as to improve athleticism and strength. My goal weight is 225.
As far as diet goes I will be eating around 3,350 calories; 300 grams of protein; 506 carbs; 90 grams of fat.
Q 1: would you change anything for these numbers?
As far as stack options I am very open to anything and everything. This will be my first cycle with the strong stuff. I’ve been trying to figure out what and how much to take. I’m open to take one and a half or double the normal dose. Also it should go without saying that I’m going to do an 8 week cycle or 12, if you think that’s necessary. I’m down for taking Metha-quad, chosen, brutal, abnormal and even equalizer (even though I don’t know what that does yet) in any combination you think is best.
Q 2: what stack would you do and what doses?
Finally as a pct. I will obviously do PctV and apex male. I was also thinking about adding extra anogenin to make it an even 100 mg. Also I wanted to add recompX and epicat!
Q 3: would you change anything about that?
Thank you so much for answering this. I was going to wait until it got closer to me doing it and till equalizer came out but I’m really anxious and excited to do this and set myself up for success. You guys are amazing and I will be a loyal fan for as long as this is around. Blackstone for life!
Should I Copyright - 1:11:40
Just wanted to start off by saying thank you for this podcast. I love your products and your knowledge on gear and supplements, it’s been a real help over all, especially when the person owning the company cares about the results of their products. Thanks for everything you do. I just wanted an opinion on what or how to kind of finish a product line my fiancé and I started, and if it’s a good industry to stay in. I have a lot of shirt ideas, from funny to facts about gym related topics.
Ex. “Here for Dumbbells, not Dumb boys”“Peach Booty Certified”*we added a peach with a thong on it lol for this one
And I guess being new to this, I'm not sure if it’s worth copyrighting this or not, or even how to distribute online. I know you’ve mentioned paying people but I guess I’m worried that it might be simple to distribute online and not worth hiring someone for it. I’ve seen the way amazon markets products and I’ve seen the website designs to make my own but I guess I’m still unsure if it’s worth it, the overall goal being we want to fully start the company by making statements with our clothing line. Especially when I see people doing abs and I just want to tell them to focus on their diet and stop doing crunches because they all have that desperation like spot reduction is real, overall I have an idea where I want to go with this, and I would greatly like to hear your opinion on the pros and cons of a clothing line and a profit margin on what to expect. Especially seeing how most times everyone has a discount on their sites to attract customer.

Trying To Put On More Size - 35:30
Hey PJ, My Names William. I met you at the Arnold and I wanted to say thank you for taking some time to talk to me! It really meant a lot! My question is, I’m 17 I am not making a lot of gains and I don’t know why. I think it could be a few things. I have suffered a eating disorder and a nasty rebound from it. I screwed up my metabolism I think so I don’t need a lot of calories to maintain my weight. I’m trying to slowly add calories back in. I’m also short only about 5’ 7”. So I never have really had a chance to try and pack of size. I’m tired of being small and not really seeing progression. I’m asking you if there is anything you think I should do, from supplements to SARMS. I just wanna be muscular and look like I lift in a shirt. My lifting career has been about 2 1/2 years. It’s consisted of dropping a 100lbs in the first 1 and then a gain of a lot of fat for 1/2 a year. Then trying to lose the fat I gained from my rebound for almost another 7 months and the rest was kind of maintaining a super lean physique and a chubby physique. So does my genetics just suck or have I not really had a chance to put on anything? My waist is around a 26-30” at 118-150 lbs wider shoulders, decently big biceps, but never really had abs yet. Sorry this is kind of everywhere.
Thanks from a huge friend and supporter- Willdavisfitness😈
Keto Condiments - 36:46
I’m back on track with my diet, but the same flavors can get old. I use flavor god on turkey and such but just kind of want to change it up. Looking for suggestions for fish, steak, poultry, and veggies.
What are good condiments that are keto friendly? (I already know Sriracha, yellow mustard, and blackening seasoning)
What else would you recommend that can be used if carb cycling that you might not want to use on keto?
Leaning Up - 39:00
Hey pj I recently just purchase Epicat,Chosen1, and Anogenin. I just started my cut about 3 weeks ago is there anything else I should add with this stack to get as lean and ripped as I can? I'm not competing or doing any shows I just want to be ripped for the summer. Thank you for taking the time out to read my question and hopefully you can answer it.
Sucralose and Keto - 39:55
Hey PJ its RDVargas from IG....again love your products and it try to make the QandA but lately been busy with work. I have a question about KETO. I have people telling to stay away from Sucralose and BCAA while on KETO because they are telling me that they can kick you out of ketosis. On the Q and A today you said Sucralose does kick you out of ketosis. Can you go into further detail on why this does not kick you out of Ketosis and why are people telling me it does. Can you also break down BCAA and its effects on KETO. One more what about the Maltodextrin in Sugar Free Metamucil can you explain if that also kick you out of ketosis?

With increasing my test cypionate to 400mg. What’s the best way to take 1mg arimadex tabs.
Military Muscle - 46:45
I’m a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps currently forward deployed in Okinawa, Japan and my dream is to get into the body building industry. You’ve been a big inspiration when it comes to putting in work at the gym and keeping my diet on point. Unfortunately, my dream doesn’t agree with the Marine Corps when it comes to my size and the amount of muscle I put on, do you have any tips when it comes to diet and incorporations in routines? The objective is to keep my waist small and my neck thick. That’s how the measuring tape option works in the military. I’ve been trying many different types of routines. Mostly my diet consists of chicken and rice with a cheat meal here and there every 2-3 weeks but I don’t seem to be slimming down and it’s kind of frustrating. Mostly I put chow last and work first. I know I may not be eating enough. Mission is the priority! Do you have any tips on how to keep my size low enough to continue with my career while chasing my bodybuilding dream in the Marine Corps?
DNP - 48:50
What's the longest you could do a cycle of dnp for at a low dose around 200 mg a day? is 30 to 45 days too much at a low dose? and what should you supplement while doing it.
Is the contest being pushed out? And if so what is the final date?
Thanks , Z

People Using You For Fame - 3:48
Hello! This is PJ's favorite person in the whole wide world 🌎🌏💞💕💖.
PJ, you've been typical brokebro who starts a business in a pink room with his roomate,, and you're also now president of an inc100 company, driving cars that are life goals for most kids, etc etc.
Looking back, is there a way you'd be able to tell who was going to remain a loyal friend/partner/SO no matter what in your brokebro days? Certain traits, actions, signs? Is there a way to know who in your present life only plays the part of a friend because of how they can benefit from you (even when you're relatively down because they know you will bump up and benefit them)?
I'm asking because I'm a hyuge yootoob celery and am afraid people around me use me for my fame and power! Thank you!! I hope you and Lady Salvagna 🍝🍝 are feeling much healthier today!
Counting Carbs - 6:55
What’s up PJ my name is Steven F, and on instagram my name is El_stevo_. I have been watching your cardio Q&A and absolutely love it. (I also talk to the god Tristen here and there and he helps me out) You always answer my questions and it’s always full of insight.
Now to business, i am currently 21 5’9 265lbs. I use to play football in high school and let myself go over the last two years. I want to get into shape, i don’t know if i see myself as a body builder but i need to get into shape. I still have the grit and love for pushing myself in the gym that i got training for football but that was different than body building. Recently I’ve figured out the muscle to mind connection where you focus on tearing your muscle fibers and i love it.
I’ve been looking into counting carbs and think i have it down. I’ve been taking L-cartnite 1850& Trojan horse from Black Stone labs as well as Anogenin. What would be your advice when it comes to eating, training, and supplement advice to get down to a SOILD 225lbs. I want to be healthier and feel better about myself as i recently got out of a nasty breakup and turned to drinking and eating horribly. It’s for myself so i can be in great shape and feel better all around.
Thanks for your time and keep inspiring, I’ll keep submitting my question until you answer and keep working as i have the drive to become healthier. I want your advice and knowledge as you have a PHD in health and fitness.
Thanks again, Steven F IG; El_stevo_
Going Non Dairy - 8:50
Can I get a WOOOOoooo PJ (Have PJ do the WOOooooo) Shout out to THE LEGION PJ, since I started the BEATPJ contest I've gone dairyless, it's part of the diet my coach has me on. I used to be a cheeseHOUND, don't even crave it or miss it now, I have noticed digestion is way better, have you ever gone with no dairy and if so what benefits did you personally notice?
Product Advice: Epicat and Recomp - 11:50
What’s up PJ,
My names Dwane. I got into fitness back in 2015 and put on about 20 pounds since then. But for basically the entire year of 2017 I wasn’t very healthy mentally and didn’t work out at all. I’m getting back now and I decided to make my own stack with your products. Paraburn & Glycolog for preworkout. Epicat & recomp Rd for post workout and growth before bed. Along with protein & creatine. Do you think using all of these at once is safe or should I cycle between them? Is this a good stack to put on as much dry, natural muscle as possible with my 5 weekly training sessions ?
Myths About Cholesterol and Fat - 12:39
So today I wanted to talk about the cholesterol and saturated fats myth. From the reading I have conducted, I have come to the conclusion that dietary cholesterol has absolutely no effect on blood cholesterol, like many still believe. Coming from a person who has consistently run keto, have you ever worried about LDL’s, saturated fats, and the fatty acids that some believe can form in your arteries? Or do you also believe that there is no correlation between dietary levels and blood levels?
I also know that testosterone is made from cholesterol. I am kind of reaching with this question, but do you think their is any way to manipulate your HDL and LDL levels in order to raise your test level?
Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, and I hope the iguana eggs are doing well.
All the best,
PCT After Chosen 1? - 16:19

Starting My Own Gym - 17:45
Whats up Josh and PJ!?
I have been using Blackstone products for several years now, and lifting for over 10 years.
I have always been a huge fitness enthusiast. I used to do some personal training. One dream I have always had is to start my own gym, and small supplement shop. Also, possibly have an online store. What sort of advice would you have for someone wanting to do this? And how do your whole sale customers work? Im sure in the whole process I would have a million questions, but where would you start?
Thanks again for everything, and Im sorry I missed the Arnold. Little baby Fiona took precedence over it this year. Whats your smallest Blackstone shirt? Shes weighing about 7 lbs J
Take care fellas!
Carb Cycling - 21:45
Hey PJ. Going to transition from the beatpj keto plan to a carb cycle. I went down from just under 160lbs to currently being about 135lbs. I’m 5’3 and I feel really happy with the results I’ve made so far. My question is: how should I set up my carb cycle to best maximize nice steady gains? If you want some background: I’m eating about 7 oz of protein mainly steak and steelhead trout at 3 of my 5 meals with a cup of veggies. The other 2 meals are shakes with added fats(peanut butter) as you suggested on the keto fat loss plan. I’m pretty much following the fat loss plan but changed the serving size on the protein. What macro/ serving size of carbs would you recommend someone of my size incorporate on a high/low/moderate carb day(s)?
Thanks again for all of the help and motivation! You and your products helped with this transformation thus far!
Your boy Swayzilla!
Size Where It Matters - 25:15
Hello PJ, I’m a long time listener of the podcast, and a big fan of you and blackstone. I’ve had a question on here that you answered once, and was thrilled to hear it on air. Thanks for all you do for listeners and fans. Due to the type of question I’m bout to get into, I want to keep my identity to myself.
About 2 1/2 to 3 years ago I purchased about 3-4 bottles of test e and c from this dude who had a prescription and would sell it 100 bucks a bottle with needles and what not. I was a big idiot who was blinded to the fact I had some gear. Did no research on how to take it or just anything. I went in blind. I would just pull about half a syringe 3 times a week. While I was most likely doing it wrong, I got strong like a ox and tightened up everything. I felt awesome, Til I started getting bitch tits, with a lean body. Looked bad! Not to mention my nuts were like no existent. I immediately stopped taking and just went on with every day life.
Well now, my balls never really got back to normal size, and I still have bitch tits. It’s been roughly 3 years. Did I fuck myself up? Is there a possible way to fix myself? Any recommendations?
I’ve thought of just jumping on some of your eradicate. Just finished 2 months of chosen 1 with decent gains. Now am on epicat, viper, Trojan horse, pct v, and boomstick by redcon 1(only cause apex male has been out for awhile) I just want my normal ball size back or hell, bigger is better, lean looking chest, and overall lean appearance.
