Well if you raised your intensity b/c you were on androgens, then yes you would want to lower it. As far as cortisol levels are concerned they are elevated drastically when coming off of a cycle, and you would want to lower your intensity to help keep these levels under control. I believe that this subject has been touched on before, and some guys had some good advice on why you should lower your intensity, just do a search and you should find something.

personally, i would keep the intensity up in order to keep my strength. while, i would lower my total volume so that i don't overtrain w/o androgens.

exactly. You do NOT want to have a decrease in lifts and low test levels, this is the worst environment for keeping gains. If possible, just lower the volume you were using for PCT.Originally Posted by lancelot
