Ostarine during PCT optimal?

I've heard several conflicting ideas for Ostarine in a PCT protocol. On one side people are against it because of suppression at a certain dose. On the other side people say at a low dose (25mg) & under 4 weeks in PCT, its fine and can actual help you recover and grow. Thoughts?

No. It will shut you down/keep you shut down. It is suppressive even at doses lower than that.

I personally wouldn’t do it just to be precautious. I don’t understand why people would use it in pct honestly; you should’ve gained plenty during cycle and if you can’t maintain it after cycle, you wont maintain it with ostarine either imo. Not saying that it wont work, just saying that I personally wouldn’t do it.

Are you getting that information from elite fitness? Don’t listen to them. Don’t use ostarine in PCT. period

Well my first thought is you are probably looking at information 5-10 years old haha, do not use a sarm/ph/steroid during pct... you will not recover ;)

I just ran this unbiased because I wasn't promoting any brand neither will I reveal that because it takes away the seriousness to some people. I had the best recovery ever and I have done a lot of cycles in my life. Ostarine isn't a muscle builder compared to any steroid but it doesn't shut you down at 25mg and 4 weeks and it helps prevent muscle waste and that's the key here.. controlling cortisol. Maybe it won't work for everyone and I don't recommend it because of that but I have yet read a negative pct review with ostarine , only people who haven't tried it saying it will shut you down. It didn't shut me down and it helped me lean out rather than adding fat during pct.

I also ran cardarine with this and I personally believe these two have some synergistic benefits with keeping muscles.

If you run an osta cycle by itself, at the end of the cycle you will be suppressed.

But if you run clomid through the cycle/ PCT you will not get suppressed.

In other words as long as you have clomid in your system your test levels will return to normal, (or stay normal if taken throughout the cycle.) Yes, Osta is suppressive but clomid blocks all the suppression. This is based on my experience, with bloods to prove it, and the experiencies of at least 4 other people who got bloods done. I have not seen proof the osta will keep you suppressed if clomid is introduced. If there is proof I would be interested to see it.

Yes and I don't even think it'll supress you without Clomid for only 4 weeks at max 25mg. I didn't notice anything, recovery was amazing

That's interesting.
There's another guy on here that runs torem throughout his injectable cycles and never gets shut down. Blood work to prove it.

The best way to recover from a cycle, is to not get suppressed during it.

Indeed but suppression might be so little that the osta will still overpower it. I mean even 100mg test barely gives you anything during pct with high cortisol. Osta is only to maintain not to gain and it's very easy to lose during pct.

Did you get blood work verifying osta didn't shut you down? Because mostly when I see people do bloods after SARMs they are shut down..

I did one at week 3 cause in leaving to Argentina. I didn't see anything that made me worry and considering the cycle I ran I was surprised I wasn't more shut down. I might of possible get blood in Argentina.. I have ran so many cycles and normally the cortisol will always be a problem. I literally didn't lose anything this pct and I got leaner so take it for what it is.

Clomid half life is like 5-7 days. So lets say you are running clomid + Ostarine at 25mg a day each for 4 weeks. When you stop (and don't run further pct) the clomid is still in your system and doing its job for another 4 weeks are so. Hence the reason for recovery because there are no more suppressive substances in your body at that time. So basically my personal opinion, I think starting clomid 2-4 weeks before the end of your actual cycle can be quite beneficial because as soon at the osta is out of your system it starts doing its thing.

Also just because you "weren't worried" doesnt mean you weren't shut down. What were your total and free test levels? Estrogen? LH and FSH?

At what dose did you run Osta? Also, I had to quit a cycle due to injury and I wanted to use Osta and Clomid to PCT. I only did the cycle for 2 weeks but wanted to PCT anyways.

Main reservation Id have with this is I found ostarine, no matter how small/big the dose, made me feel lethargic. Would this feeling be compounded during the PCT period? Buggered if I know, maybe, maybe not.

I wouldnt think youd need to even run 25mg doses to reap any purported benefits anyway.

Ostarine during PCT should actually be called “extending my cycle”...where do people get this stuff

I did 8 weeks of Ostarine solo and test levels tanked to 58!!...no dont use in pct
At what dosage though? And pct should be 4 weeks people need to get this in to their head. We know it's suppressive but everyone run it for 8 or 12 weeks.

I felt amazing on it actually but we're all different. Best pct so far of say, however I'm interested seeing what happens when osta is out of the system.. is it still gong leave me in a good shape or will I come back to having cortisol problems as with every cycle. There's no point looking good during pct and then lose it afterwards.

Can we see some of this bloodwork that proves it? I saw a few ppl in here say they did bloodwork but there's no bloodwork to be seen.

I'd like to see the blood work as well. I just don't see why it would be suppressive at 8 weeks, but at 4 not suppressive at all? I'm not saying it's not because I haven't tried it or seen blood work for it. Only heard and seen people say they've gotten blood work without shutdown

The few bloods I saw show suppression, one showed slight the other was totally crushed

Same man. But clomid wasn't involved. Was it on what you saw ?
You just said the opposite, you said bloodwork showed no shutdown. I saw someone's with suppression from the 700's to under 100. That's hard supression/Shutdown. It was before pct so the Clomid is irreverent

I think you misread my post bro. I said the only blood work I've seen showed shutdown(Wasn't in pct). I've only heard of people say they have bloods proving no shutdown but never actually have seen them.

You could prob get away with 10mg of osta in pct it'll just take a bit longer to recover. You could even get away with 20 - 25 mg of s4 in pct being that it's not suppressive until 50 mg or so.

I think Ara should be a no brainer in pct tho. Add in cardarine and mk677 and you're g2g

I mean you could do 15 day ostarine during PCT(cortisol is usually highest first 2 weeks); then continue on with clomid/nolva for next 2 weeks I think would be fine.

It's really just a polisher like any other mild steroid or Sarm. I think just for the safety its better to run Mk677 and watch the diet.


Did i recover? Yes and without a problem really. I felt that my body did change a little for the better during pct and the energy (probably placebo). It's also kinda good for joints when lifting heavy.

Would i recommend it? No because i can't guarantee how others will do, but i dont believe a small dosage will change the outcome of the pct just like proviron.

Hope this helps :)

yea I'm going to see what 7.5mg-15mg does when I start my pct; going to do it for the first 2 weeks.
