plus a SERM (e.g. tamoxifen 20mg ED for the duration, tapering finally after the test taper)
thats the method i used last time, and it seemed to work very well. I was on for about 8 months, took 3 weeks off, and did my taper with nolva. worked VERY well.
Anyone else have opinions? [/quote]
I have a similar post right now as well, I am coming off a 20 week Test E only cycle at 400mg/week, which is about half of the length of your cycle. When you came off after a year and DID NOT use the taper and just went right for the serm PCT- how long were you on SERM PCT, what was your dosing protocol, Nolva or Clomid, how long did it take you to bounce back/testes come back to size? Did you retain gains ok?
FYI, i DID use the stasis/taper method in that previous cycle. But i have done cycles of quite a long period of time, 24 weeks, and just used nolva and a taper to come off…
the cycle went like this:
w 1-24 - Test C @ 800 mg/w
w 4-10 - dianabol @ 25 mg/d
w 1-24 - arimidex @ 0.25 mg/d
w 24-30 - adex @ 1 mg/d
w 27 - 32 test c 60/40/20/20/20 mg/w
w 27-32- nolvadex @ 20mg/d
w 33-36 nolva @ 10mg/d
hope that makes sense to people other than myself LOL.
I felt about 70-80% recovered after that pct/taper, and got blood work done about 6 weeks after pct, and blood work didnt look bad.
kept around 80 or so % of my gains. i was happy.
I have had even better results with the stasis taper… kept upwards to 90% or so of my gains on my last cycle.
EDIT: I have also done cycles with JUST nolva as pct… very similar dosing to above, just without the test for the taper. results were also not too bad…
