While there are countless old-hands when it comes to getting on and off a Prohormone Cycle there are also many who are embarking on this quest for the first time.
We will ask; what is a Prohormone Cycle and how you can best prepare for it? We will also discuss the equally important Post Cycle Therapy required once you have completed your cycle
A Prohormone Cycle
This term is used to describe the length of time and typical dosage involved when you go on a course of Prohormones. Common cycle lengths are 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks and 8 weeks. If you are just starting out you should take middle ground and go for 4 weeks. Some experienced users state that 4 week cycles give the maximum gains with the fewest side effects, and very few recommend going beyond an 8 week cycle.
Which is the best prohormone for you?
This is really a question that only you can answer. You need to consider exactly what your own objectives are, and what risk factors are involved. When starting out you would perhaps be wise to start with a mild steroid and keep your doses low. If you are a novice you should still see some excellent gains.
Have an Estrogen Blocking product at the ready
What is a prohormone cycle without an estrogen blocker at the ready? Very risky in most experienced users opinions!
You would be wise to use such a blocker both during and after your cycle.
Diet during a cycle
It is vital that you are eating a good clean diet during your cycle. In fact if you are serious about what you are doing your diet should always be a major factor whether you are ‘cycling’ or not!
During a cycle you shouldn’t need to change too much. It is often recommended you increase your protein intake to a minimum of 2 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight. You should also ensure that you increase your water intake, and look at taking fish oil and a liver protectant in supplement form.
Once your cycle is over, your responsibilities aren’t! You really MUST take:
Post Cycle Therapy (PCT)
Please do not underestimate the importance of a PCT supplement. You need one because you have introduced an outside testosterone into your body during your cycle, and this will naturally suppress your own testosterone production.
A PCT is simply an estrogen blocker or inhibitor which works to clear out the estrogen in your system. It will also work to get your natural testosterone production moving and back on track.
If you need any more persuading as to its importance, it will basically jumpstart your testicles into working at full capacity again!
The main purpose of a PCT is to restore normal hormone production, and you need this to ensure the gains you have made stay with you.
So quite an involved process really! Hopefully the above has helped a little in explaining what it is, and some factors you should most definitely take into account. Prepare yourself well, enjoy, and don’t forget that PCT!
