I always go completely off. After a 8-14 week cycle, I do a 6 week “stasis” period of 100mg weekly of 50Test/50Masteron, followed by a 2-3 week taper with Nolva added. When I go totally off afterward, the process is totally smooth. Highly recommended and thanks to Prisoner for introducing us to this. Thing is I’m at an age most athlete have retired, and going off means I feel my age again, and well, it sucks.
I’ve been totally off for a few weeks now, and I’ve lost muscle and gained fat compared to my on cycle peak of course, but not that bad. My upper body has amazingly stayed pretty close to the same (except for the added belly fat). Legs are a lot smaller. I just can’t figure out why at all. It never happened this way. Only difference is the use of peptides.
My libido is decent (better than my age group for sure), I even have morning wood, no problem there. I wake up feeling fine and not like I’ve been run over by a truck, which I sometimes felt in other off cycles. Mood is great too. That does point to complete recovery. What’s even more weird is that my strength has gone slightly UP, even for legs.
But my recuperation capacity is down, and I mean waaaayyyy down. I have 2 or 3 weakass training sessions a week at most: 60% intense weight training or MMA routine, 40-60min bike ride instead of 2+ hours. After one leg workout I had sore hamstrings for 8 days! I don’t get it. As I barely train anymore, it doesn’t affect my “real life” but I do want to train!
Anyone ever experience something like that or some other weird stuff?
