    Is Big Cat right about aromatizing hormones being bad for cutting?


    I always thought that it didnt really matter, that the main aspect of cutting was diet and training (on cycle cutting not off) and that the choice of Ph/ps did not really matter in terms of fat loss. But in reading one of his articles he says that "The aromatisation of boldenone is too small to cause real problems and in normal doses (300-400 mg/week) problems such as gynocomastia and too much fat retention are unheard of."

    So too much estrogen would be problematic for cutting? Because I am using 14add and 4ad while cutting (along with other things) and I seem to be bloated a bit, but I am shedding fat like crazy!!!! I am just as big as I was (muscle wise) except on my stomach. After 2 weeks trimax I have droped 10-15lbs, and my lifts went up during this time (some not all) Some went up 10-20lbs) I was on m1t. Still have a week left on trimax and hope to be able to see my abs in a few more weeks.

    from my understanding the aromatization to estrogen leads to increased fat storage, which is obviously counterproductive on a cut, but if its working for you, keep it up.

    they shouldn't be a problem at all except for added water weight but that will drop off post cycle or you could use letro, adex, or a dht derivative to combat it while on cycle
    people cut using test all the time and that certainly aromatizes

    Well it sounds like everything is going in the right direction. The bloat will go away rather quick during your PCT but if it really bothers you, then do as glenihan suggests or even use nolva to combat it.

    Increased estrogen does not lead to increased fat storage, increased progesterone does.

    Nolva wont combat on cycle bloat, only an AI like letro or Arimidex would do that, or something like m5aa
