Losing Muscle Or Temporary Size/strength Loss
i did a pheramax cycle a couple months ago and went from 239-256 and it was awsome. i then ate like crazy of course through post cycle therapy and waited a month to start cutting but for the first two weeks all i did was drop cals a bit. then 6 weeks after post cycle therapy i started an all out cut.
this included 20 minutes of HIIT cardio 4-5 days a week either first thing in the morning or after lifting. (i'm hitting every bodypart once a week).
anyways my strength has gone way down. i was reping 275 bench 5x5 and now 225 5x5 is hard. i've been cutting for a month now hard and i have def lost fat tho. squats went from 330 5x5 to 225 5x8 (probly could do a little more but doesnt feel safe)
diet is as follows: 6 meals a day. i take in 60 grams of protein through whey, nonfat cottage cheese, egg whites, tuna and 25 grams of carbs through whole grain pasta, rice, bread and oatmeal. for the last meal of the day all i have is nonfat cottage cheese. i'm aslo taking a multi, fish oil, and glutamine. i also look much smaller. is this just temporary from glycogen and water loss or what?

maybe i'll raise my carbs to around 50 grams per meal. oh ya and i forgot to mention that i have albuterol on the way and i'm going to do my first Superdrol (m-drol) cycle a couple weeks after my cut once most of my strength comes back. hopefully it does along with size.
any other comments?

Speaking of anti-cortisols, I'm using retain right now. I've also heard that restore is good. Any thoughts?

if cortisol was completely blocked, you would die. however i completely understand that it is a different situation when coming off a steroid cycle. there is no research of those users that use anti-cortisol products as a means of fat loss...our bodies are efficient enough

my buddy lost all of his gains and then some after phera-max. He had amazing results with the true AX Phera-Plex then enjoyed ok gains on Phera-Max however after his cycle his gains slowly started diminishing week by week een though he had a proper post cycle therapy, was eat really well and training just as hard. I myself think that Phera-Max is a dud compound
