    Lean Extreme good for cutting during PCT?


    I am about to enter PCT after my 1st cycle on H-drol. I was on 6 weeks, gained 10 lbs (I estimate 5 lbs are muscle, 5 lbs are fat) and decent strength gains.

    I purchased Anabolic's Post cycle Therapy caps prior to starting the cycle.

    What would be the best supplement to augment with during PCT so as to keep the 5 lbs muscle gain, maintain/gain strength, and lose the new water/fat gain?

    I was thinking of Lean Extreme, but is that any better than the bottle of Hyfroxycut I already have? Or should I purchase smthg else?

    I plan to be on a 1700 calorie diet, putting me at a 500+ calorie deficit and will also supplement with BCAAs. I want to do this for 4 weeks and if blood work turns out normal, then start a new cutting cycle with epi or tren.

    Trying to cut while in PCT is a bad idea. Caloric deficits can negatively affect hormone levels and your HPTA is still in recovery mode from your cycle. Finish PCT, wait a couple of more weeks, and then begin your cut.

    Rodja, thanks for the quick response. Would it be ok to recomp during PCT so as to lose an average of 1-2 lbs/week? For example, consume 2400 cals (that would normally maintain my weight), but continue to lift heavy and perform intense cardio 2-3 times a week. Or would this constitute a cutting routine that you are advising me against?

    That's walking a very fine line. You run the risk of losing your LBM from your cycle with that plan. Now if you want to run a slight caloric surplus (~200-300kcals), then you run a better chance of losing a tad of fat while keeping your LBM.

    Would P-Slin be advisable during PCT on a mild surplus in order to assist the recomp, or shall I wait till after PCT? I have heard it is a good product for endomporphs as it significantly helps with nutrient partitioning.
