I've been a natural bodybuilder for 10yrs, but sadly things are starting to slide. Are prohormones even worth taking? Do you really need PCT?
The general view on PCT with hormonal products is yes. But back in the day that stuff didn't exist and Arnold was running 26 week cycles of Deca, D-Bol, and more. People relied on their bodies to recover on their own. So it's up to you on how suppressed you think you are but better safe than sorry IMO.
Yes they're worth it depending on what you're looking for and what PH's you use. There is a lot of crap out there. CEL has a great reputation especially on this forum. It's the only company I prefer to use.
in my experience, they are worth it but holding on to the gains can be difficult. it's kind of like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound, it will help short term but not intended for long term use. if i had to do it all over again I'd go straight to AAS, way more benefits and less toxicity and not difficult to use either.....from what i hear
PHs are good but honestly its pretty hard to maintain the gains in pct you really have to keep calories high and even then the gains still don't seem quite as "solid as AAS gains.
Epi is by far the best for me. I have a ton of PHS/DSS but I'm switching to gear next time.
While you may be able to come back without pct I would still do one. If pct is only going to help u then why would u not take advantage ya know?
I've been BB/Lifting for 6 years and I'm 205-210... I've been 225. Time doesn't correlate to size. For years I've just wanted to maintain. I don't want to be freaky big so I'm not always trying to get HUGE off something. If he's been BB'ing for 10 years maybe he's referring to his lifestyle not a goal.
I believe a select few are worth it. super, phera, and M1T for bulking, and epi and hdrol stack well to recomp. I also use WAY higher dosages than most people on this forum though.
to be honest ph are not worth it. The gains are extremely hard to keep and they put a great deal of stress on the body. if i could go back i would have never touched ph's. aas would be the only way to go if your older than 25 and use the basics like test ect.
Personally I didn't care for the cylce I tried. I got 3.5 weeks thru H-drol and quit and went into PCT. Lethargy and back pumps were too much despite taking all the support supps and taking some DHEA and Taurine. Pumps got so bad that it made pulling deads almost impossible. Everyone is different, I've seen a lot of logs with great results, I just didn't respond well to it.
150 bucks for an 8 weeks worth isn't that bad at all.
I've never gotten acne, there are drugs for combating gyno and restarting your own hormone production. I'll risk it, and take the gains of AAS over SARMs anyday. But that's me..
SARMs may prove to be effective for some, but who wants to risk eye damage. You can't say with 100% certainty that any effects to your eyes on cycle are always reversible after cycle? Test is tried and true and is winner in my book !
