So, now that I am coming off of what I think has been a very successful but pretty long cycle, I have a few questions for you gentlemen.
Here is what I have been doing: around 4 months of test prop at 700mgs/w along with tren at the beginning and mast at the end, as well as some dbol at the beginning and a very short bit of halotest at the end just before my show.
I’m officially off cycle now, and I know that I should start to take it easy with the workouts. Heavy, lower reps, shorter sets, lower overall volume. No problem. The thing is, I think I overdid this last time by taking it too easy for too long. I was using the stasis/taper (as I am this time), and I assumed “post-cycle” is 3 months, because that’s how long it takes to get through the stasis taper. But then I got to thinking about it. Most guys PCT only lasts a month or so, and that is considered the post cycle period. With the test taper, though, the hormonal changes (specifically the release of cortisol) is going to occur in a different timeframe (or manner) than it would with a traditional nolva/clomid PCT.
So here is my question: Should I start ramping up volume a little sooner this time around? For example, I take 6 weeks easy, then start slowly increasing volume and overall time in the gym after that? Or am I better off just taking an entire three months of low volume work and focus on something else during that time? My instincts tell me that I’ll be okay after a month or so to start moving things forward again, but I would like to hear from guys more experienced than I am.
And just to really mess everything up. I’m receiving a free vial each of IGF-1 lr3 and PEG-MGF both of which I planned to apply post cycle
