Just ordered my first peptides, going to start my regimen as soon as I get them. Can't wait!

I'm beginning with a two-pin schedule : Once before I run on running days/Once after a work out on lifting days....and then before bed time.
I was debating between GHRP-2 and Ipamorelin, and decided with GHRP-2 as my GHRP. I'm hoping the hunger will be muted like it is for most. I'm also going with the Mod GRF-129 as the GHRH.
100mg each to start.
While the fat loss and lean muscle gain will be nice, I'm especially excited about the repair to my tendons and ligaments...particularly in my elbows. The deeper sleep will be much appreciated, too.
Although I'm a little worried about it being hard to wake up from the deeeeeep sleep, it's something that will be good for me.
I will provide updates as I see the effects.

So is this primarily for your tendons, or did you start looking into it for the fat loss and find that tendon repair was a "side effect?" You already look pretty lean in your avatar - any more fat loss and you might be ready for a show.
Looking forward to hearing about your results.

My primary motivation is my elbows and joint/connective tissue health in general. I've had tendonitis (golfer's elblow, opposite side as tennis elbow) for a few years now...it flares up and dies down, but when it flares it is very painful and there's no telling when I'll get a flash of incredible pain anytime I move my arm.
If I'm being honest, it's really 50/50 about my motivation for using peptides. I'm not really into losing much more fat or adding much more muscle, although it looks like that is going to happen...and I'd by lying if I said I had a problem with that. But excited about the my ligamaments, tendons, etc., deeper sleep, and all the other benefits of returning my levels of GH to levels not attained since I was 18.
High-T, with regard to eating, GH production, etc, are you familiar with "pulsity"?

Cant say that I am. What is it?

Completely qualitative. I am not changing my conditioning whatsoever, and seeing what other's have attained with various dosing schedules, I'm confident that a twice-daily schedule is a good starting point. I have asked my doctor about peptides, he was quite dismissive about it.
Pulsity is the term used to describe the release of GH from the pituitary gland in men. The hormone somatostatin is used as an 'off' switch to restrict the release of GH. When this hormone periodically depletes (like when in deep sleep, for example) is when GH gets "pulsed" into our systems. When not being released, the GH is produced but stored...and then released in a pulse. See the blue in the following graph:
The blue is the the pulsing that is natural...the red is what happens when people are injecting sythetic HGH into thier systems. What I like about peptides is that it is not synthetic HGH, but rather stimulating my own pituitary gland to produce my body's own GH and to do so in the natural pulses that already exist, but at levels comparable to when I was 17, not my current ancient 32. It's this pulsity that will allow me to only slightly modify my eating habits. I don't have to go through some hyper disciplined eating regimen in order to benefit from it.
That peptides are only encouraging a natural process are the most appreciable trait outside of it's notable effects. It doesn't alter body chemistry at all the way steriods, HGH, etc., do, other than increasing the "pulses" that already exist at levels my pituitary used to emit. (Maybe higher...but that's a debate for another time)
I'm just looking forward to losing a few vanity pounds (love handles) and maybe a few pounds of lean muscle, but most of all recovering from my awful tendonitis and various connective-tissue problems.
Edit: please note that this pulsing pattern is not the same in women, as they're levels (as far as I can decipher at this point) remain closer to a constant emission as opposed to pulses. If anyone is inclined to research this along with me, I'd love to hear what you find! I understand it also helps with skin elasticity and anti-wrinkle effects, too, which my wife is interested in. (she doesn't need it, but she wont hear it from me)

Mod GF-129 (aka CJC-1295 w/o DAC)...check
Note that the peptides come in pre-constituted form...basically a rock-powder. I added 1mL of Bacteriostatic water to the Mod GF...and 2.5 mL of bacteriostatic water to the GHRP-2, and they were successful reconstituted:

After reconstituted, yes, you have to inject it. This is the Mod-GRF-129 and GHRP-2 after being reconstituted....they're liquid.
And now I will let the reconstituted peptides sit over night, and will start tomorrow, pinning right before I go for my 3-mile run tomorrow.

This is gonna take you to another level, eh? So, are they in a grey area, or fully legal? Did they come from one of those Eastern European mail order sites where guys get their "juice"?

They are effective, and I can't wait to finally get rid of my torched knee and the perpetual tendonitis in my elbows/forearms...the fat loss and muscle mass gain is just an added bonus.

Be careful...Do what you must, but seems like there are better alternatives to what you are doing....Just my opinion not that it matters
