Alright for PCT couple options
This is basically your original PCT with a fourth week of Nolvadex added, I don’t know how many tablets are in your packets.
Clomid at 100 per day weeks 1 and 2
Clomid at 50 per day week 3
Nolvadex at 20 per day week 4
Nolvadex and clomid
Nolvadex at 20 clomid at 50 weeks 1 and 2
Weeks 3 and 4 Nolvadex at 10 clomid at 25
40 mgs per day weeks 1 and 2
20 mgs per day weeks 3 and 4
Now if you are wanting weeks five it doesn’t hurt, you can add Nolvadex at 10mgs per day for week five. Then if you want to for week six you can do 10mgs every other day. You could even just do week five at 10mgs every other day then stop.
It’s been a while since I ran a PCT I am human so I do forget but I am fairly certain those are good protocol and dosages most guys use. Save the first one since you are switching from clomid to Nolvadex on week four and switching is not something you see covered regularly but you should be okay doing it. Basically from what I remember you double dose the first two weeks then single dose the weeks 3 and 4. When you use both Nolvadex and clomid at the same time you single dose each week 1 and 2 then half dose each (somewhat equalling a total of one dose) for weeks 3-4. However there plenty of guys that say that is using too much.
Hopefully someone who still PCTs and is up on the current protocol will chime in.
As far as your friends and what they get and use. Test is rarely faked however it is commonly underdosed. Lots of UGLs come out with good strong well dosed products, if not over dosed products, to get a good name. Then over time they lower the dosage to make more money.
The other possibility with your friend that is a shell of what he use to be is he could just be half assing his effort. I remember those first few cycles I was pumped and hit the ground running at 100mph. Lots of guys do. But then that gas let’s up. They don’t stop going to the gym or even stop cycling but they are putting in less effort. They don’t eat as well as they use too or sleep right.
The other possibility is he never stopped taking cycle level dosages. Even the pros that take ridiculous dosages take some time to lower the dose and cruise. You have too. You can’t keep making your body grow at break neck speeds or shit breaks. You have to take some time to ease up a bit, let the tendons develop. Get to where your new weight range isn’t requiring your full effort. If you stay at cycle level dosages your body adapts, it gets use to it, it no longer is stimulated at that dose, and you stop growing. Not to mention the other health risks of staying at cycle level dosages.
If you look around this site there is a guy named flip collar. He is trying to compete at the pro level of bodybuilding. He just made a thread about how his shows this year are landing in a manner where he doesn’t get an off season and even he (a pro level guy) is planning on coming down from cycle level of dosages for 4-6 weeks in-between the busiest parts of his year.
Chances are your friend fell victom to what so many do, he never wanted the on cycle feeling to go away so he stayed at cycle level dosages.
Dont worry it’s good for you to realize this stuff going in so you know you have to check yourself.
All you have to do is be smart and put long term health (in regards to AAS usage) at the top of your priorities.
Trust me and so many others when I say this, testosterone is very powerful and really if used properly it can cover about 90% of what everyone wants in regards to phsique. It’s just some other stuff can get you to certain things a little quicker.
