Bear in mind that supplementation is only one part of a complete post-steroid cycle regimen. One also has to adjust diet and training. It is proper eating, more than anything, that will help one retain gains or improve after discontinuing steroids. Steroids increase metabolic rate and appetite. Many men find they can eat a lot on a cycle, including a great deal of carbohydrates, and not gain much (or any) fat. So, typically, caloric needs decrease after a cycle, due to the removal of the steriods and to the decreased level of training intensity. If one is continuing training, protein requirements remain high, of course. Usually, after a cycle, men tend to put on a little more bodyfat. Thus, coming off a cycle is no excuse for loosening up diet. In fact, it is imperative to pay attention to managing carbohydrate intake. It is carbohydrates that are dietarily responsible for fat, not fats. Glutamine should also be used. It helps maintain a positive nitrogen balance in muscle cells, which improves recovery and repair functions, and it thwarts post-training muscle breakdown. Glutamine also appears to increase night-time growth hormone secretion.
The best course of action may be to utilize enough non-hormone steroids, and during the last phase of the cycle, using fast acting substances like testosterone propionate or trenbolone. Oral dianabol may also be effective as it can clear away quickly from the body. Also, during the whole cycle, efforts should be made to keep the levels of estrogen down. This can be done with the help of compounds like formestane and arimidex . Taking non-aromatizable steroids like winstrol and trenbolone is also a good way to keep estrogen levels under control.
Its action in the male body is like that of LH, stimulating the Leydig cells in the testes to produce testosterone even in the absence of endogenous LH. HCG is therefore used during longer or heavier steroid cycles to maintain testicular size and condition, or to bring atrophied (shrunken) testicles back up to their original condition in preparation for post-cycle Clomid therapy. This process is necessary because atrophied testicles produce reduced levels of natural testosterone, this situation should be rectified prior to post-cycle Clomid therapy.
