    Is it necessary to taper down toward the end?


    For a ph cycle, is it ideal to taper down? Example:

    week1-300mg
    week2-400mg
    week3-600mg
    week4-700mg
    week5-400mg
    week6-300mg


    ....or should the last 2 weeks be the peek weeks at the highest dosage?

    Didn't peopleused to taper before PCT was introduced? Or if they didnt know about PCT?

    If you have PCT in order(Nolva/6oxo/clomid whatever) then I would make the last weeks the highest dosages.

    What androgen are you running BTW? I assume 1AD from those numbers.

    People still taper down, some don't. All depends on what you respond to best.

    I think the idea is that once you are shutdown you will stay shutdown till you come off, so you might as well enjoy the benefits of running whatever (looks like 1-ad?) at full strength till the end of cycle.

    Depends on what you are taking a little, but if it is 1-ad I would not taper, just do a good pct at the end.

    good question, especially taking into consideration a strong PCT with all the right supps. I'd like to hear as many opinions as possible.

    I suggest not tapering down, I really don't understand the point? You are shut down, so any slight amount of an androgen is going to keep you shut down imo. If you want recovery go with HCG.
