Top Hormonal Products for Building Mass

Top Hormonal Products for Building Mass

When it comes to packing on muscle mass quickly and easily, nothing helps more than prohormones and test boosters. In this article, we aren't going to discuss the merits of natural vs not-natural and the pros and cons of each. Instead, we are assuming you've made the decision to jump to the dark side. 

Firstly, let's talk about words. 

When it comes to "prohormones", lots of different products get lumped in under that label... including anabolics, test boosters, DHEA derivatives, and actual prohormones. A prohormone is a compound that is converted by metabolism into a hormone. This is not to be confused with a 'designer steroid' which is basically a legal version of an illegal steroid.

We will go over our top picks for products that build mass quickly. These are hormonal products, so we are not talking about protein powders, pre-workouts, or anything like that. These products change the nature of the hormone balance in your body, and generally mimetic testosterone, or increase the anabolic properties of your own testosterone.

1. Hi-Tech Halodrol

Hi-Tech Halodrol provides it’s intense effects thanks to the structural alterations made to the steroid known as Dehydroepiandrosterone, more commonly known as DHEA. Each tablet of Halodrol includes multiple variations of this powerful steroid which allows it to maximize every muscle building & strength increasing pathway possible.


  • Non-methylated pro steroid; must convert to 1-androstenediol (1-AD), 1-androstenedione (original 1-AD) and/or 1-testosterone in order to be active
  • Naturally occurring metabolite of DHEA; convert upon ingestion to metabolites 1-AD/1Test
  • No conversion to estrogen
  • Potent androgenic effects; little to no gyno risk
  • Moderate gains in lean mass and strength
  • Little to no water retention

2. Blackstone Labs Methaquad Extreme

Metha Quad Extreme is one of our top selling prohormones. Metha Quad is a potent blend of 4 anabolic compounds including Androsterone, 1-Andro, 1-Andro, and Arimistane. Metha Quad does require post cycle therapy and should not be used longer than 2 months without a break.


  • Androsterone - Converts to DHT, the male sex hormone. Helps increase strength and libido
  • 1-Andro - Converts to 1-Testosterone. Considered a lean bulking compound, 1-Andro is the premiere legal anabolic compound on the market and will allow you to build strength and size without excess water weight.
  • 4-Andro - Converts to Testosterone. Considered a "wet" gainer, 4-Andro will help you build strength and size, but does aromatize which may result in excess water retention. 4-Andro is great for libido.
  • Arimistane - Anti estrogen compound that will combat the side effects of 4-Andro and keep your muscle lean and hard.

3.  Hi-Tech Pharma 1-AD 60 Tabs

Hi-Tech Pharma 1-AD is 3rd on the list, as it's the most mild out of our top picks. This is recommended for those who are just trying to get their feet wet, or do a lightweight cycle. 1-AD is 1-DHEA supported by Hi-Tech's cyclosome technology, helping the body absorb up to 90% of active DHEA metabolites. 

1-AD is a great option for lean mass and strength gains, leaning toward the more mild end of things.
