I am coming off a long cycle in a few weeks, was something like 27 weeks long, a wee bit longer than planned lol. I have been planning this post cycle for quite sometime, trying to gather as much info from others who have successfully recovered from these long cycles. So far, this is the best pct I can think of to make recovery as easy as possible. It is probably overkill, but I would rather be spending a few bucks I didnt need to, than wishing I did and having a crappy recovery. While on cycle I have been running HCG throughout most of it, usually 500IU 3x week. These last few weeks leading up to pct I will be using 500IU eod, may do the last ~5 days of the cycle at 500IU everyday, gotta make sure the boys are swole!!
There are a few things I am unsure of on. I have the DHEA in there, not for sure on whether to use it or not, have read of several people having problems with getting gyno from it, but I figure with my combo of SERMS/AI I shouldnt have any problems in that department. The next thing is when to start the IGF. I have it set up to start the IGF as soon as I end the HCG, I know many say not to run HCG in pct, but I have found a couple studies that proved when taken at 250IU 2x week in conjuction with nolva, there was no inhibition of natural test levels or FSH/LH. Also, Author L. Rea, although many disagree with some of his theories, has HCG through part of his recovery periods. So since I am running the HCG ~3 weeks into pct, I figured there would be no crash in that time period, so I had it set up to start the IGF right after ceasing the HCG to help prevent any crash that may occur from stopping the HCG. I cant decide if it is better to use the HCG the way I have it set up, or as soon as I start pct. Another reason I waited to start the HCG in week 3, is it seems the "crash" occurs somewhere around week 3-4, so I thought that would help prevent that.
Another thing I am having a hard time deciding on is whether to use proviron in pct. I was planning on using it the first 3 weeks of pct at around 30mg/day, pretty low dose for proviron. There is no conversion to estrogen and it actually has some anti-e properties, so it shouldnt cause any shutdown from excessive estro production, and its not such a strong androgen that it will cause shutdown from that. I have talked to several people that ran proviron through part of their pct and they said it was a very easy recovery. I am sure it will inhibit recovery to a degree since there are still some exogenous hormones there, but the way I see it, is I will get a little bit of recovery while on the proviron, while being able to avoid the crash, then when stopping the proviron, continue recovery and hopefully enough recovery had taken place in those 3 weeks that the crash shouldnt be near as bad. Mainly using it to help with libido. Again, ALR has proviron through part of his recovery cycles. Alot of different ideas/opinions on this one...
For the other supps I will be taking completely throughout pct, it will be ZMA/ Trib Xtreme by CNW/ Creatine/ Cissus/ Lean Xtreme/ GXR. Possibly thinking about trying Powerfull from USP Labs when I am done with the IGF. I have never tried Glucophase XR, but I was thinking using it pct should help keep the muscles full of nutrients to slow catabolism somewhat, and for postworkout I want to try 2 caps GXR with Vitargo since that carb is supposed to have such good absorption and speed glycogen replenishment. Using that in conjuction with IGF should give some pretty good pumps I hope. This is gonna be freaking expensive lol.
Just looking for some opinions on what I could do to make this better or any changes you guys think I should make to improve this.
