Whenever the anabolic steroid cycle ends, it is very important to end the anabolic action very slowly. For example, if someone was taking 1,000 mg of sustanon per week and entering the final phase of a cycle, the food should not be abruptly stopped. The problem with abruptly stopping a cycle when taking high doses of steroids is that you may suffer from a “glitch” phenomenon. In the bodybuilding setting, when we talk about “glitch”, we mean a situation in which the user abruptly stops taking any exogenous anabolic steroid without the presence of natural testosterone production (due to suppression of the HPTA axis). Usually, the resumption of natural testosterone production takes about 2-3 weeks, and it is at this time that the user is extremely vulnerable to viruses (caused by a weak immune system), has sexual desire. low and worst of all, muscle loss. How can we prevent this “collapse” of endogenous hormonal systems?
First of all, in the first week it is necessary to slowly reduce the amount of all injectable anabolic steroids, to bring the level of injectable testosterone immediately to a maximum dose of 500 mg per week. Secondly, in the second week, all oral compounds and all injectable anabolic substances come off (with the exception of injectable long-acting testosterone, keep it at a dose not exceeding 500 mg per week). It is a good idea to use long-acting testosterone (such as testosterone enanthate or cypionate) versus short-lived testosterone (such as testosterone propionate) because long-acting esters slowly leave the bloodstream over 3 to 4 weeks and therefore there will always be an amount of the hormone available. during which the user’s body will be able to start producing endogenous testosterone. Third, in the third week after the last dose of testosterone, the user must take human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) for two weeks. Every 2 days, the user must inject 2000 IU of hCG. HCG is a hormone that mimics the action of the pituitary hormone LH. In men, LH stimulates testosterone production by the Leydig cells in the testes (this will kickstart the testes, which will be inactive). Finally, Clomid (clomiphene citrate) and Arimidex (aromatase inhibitor) are used in the fifth week.
Arimidex is used at 0.5 mg every other day for 2 weeks.
Clomid should be administered orally at a dose of 50 mg twice a day … day for 2 weeks. Clomid is a synthetic estrogen that can serve two functions in men: A) Clomid acts against estrogen receptors (suppressing estrogenic side effects).b) Clomid mimics the action of a hypothalamic hormone that releases gonadotropins (GnRH). In humans, GnRH stimulates the pituitary gland to produce LH and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Clomid’s ultimate role is to help awaken the pituitary gland, which has been suppressed by the recently discontinued heavy cycle of anabolic steroids. After taking the last pill of Clomid, it’s time to give the body a chance to restore its natural endogenous hormonal system. This normalization can occur between 2-4 weeks. I advise you to avoid all synthetic anabolic steroids for at least 6-8 weeks after taking your last Clomid tablet. This rupture will also give your liver cells enough time to detoxify and free the androgen receptors from muscle cells that will become more receptive to new anabolic stimuli.
I disagree: it has now been clinically proven that endogenous testosterone production does not begin to recover fully until AFTER exogenous androgens completely cease their effect: a slow decrease in consumption is completely useless to avoid a crash: in fact, nothing is completely useless try to avoid this if the endocrine assumptions that define it have already been developed (that is, if we gave it a lot): PCT also has a largely palliative effect: after the cessation of PCT, hormonal values often return to breakdown. PCT has more than anything else, an endocrine launcher … if it is able to feel the “shock”: this often happens after several months of interruption in products, if not even years in extreme cases: I prefer to avoid starting serious damage to the hpta or if you are competitive, you better throw it down the toilet and move on to the bridal matching periods, the periods when everything rebalances … except for the axis, but in this world everything has a price and it is best to know it from the very beginning
In addition, there is no point in freeing androgen receptors from anabolic agents: androgen receptors do not regulate the substrate like adrenergic and opiate receptors. There are other recovery mechanisms that determine the progressive decline in anabolic efficiency.
