This is just based on my experiance, but during and after pct I always used to increase calories to try and keep the weight, but all that happened was I got fatter and didnt keep any more muscle as i would have with lower cals. This made me feel shit for longer, and when I lost the fat, I felt “right again” - the fatter you are the less test and more E (again i maybe wrong but this is what i believe).
In my opinion, its best to eat enough calories to stop yourself from becoming catabolic, but not enough to gain extra fat. main thing is to keep hold of as much muscle you gained with the test.
then on your second cycle, you could just run some var/mast prop etc and clen towards the end of a test E cycle
btw, did you run an AI?[/quote]
Thanks for clearing my doubts.yeah am currently running 0.25 mg adex EOD…one more question i heard var/mast is only effective if you have a low bodyfat to begin with…so if i were to start my second cycle of test and mast/var at 15% bf will it be a waste of time?
No worries man, and no not at all, compared to a lot of guys a real 15% isnt to bad for an off season/approaching a cut level. in my opinion, as its only your second cycle (you want to get the most results out of the least drugs)maybe bump test up to 600mg/weeks 1-12 (or keep it at 500!), and add in some hardening drug like 50-100mg var day/100mg mast prop eod for weeks 8-12 along with some clen.
the problem is keeping bodyfat low after the cycle, unless you dont mind gaining a little fat.
Btw i’d bump adex up to .5 mg eod, i find that keeps water weight down, which in turn allows you to lose less weight coming off so you dont feel as if your shrinking.
