A friend of mine who is a power lifter but also on TRT, what he calls cruise & blast.
On cruise, he takes 125mg T cyp weekly. On blast, he takes 250mg T weekly. Like me he takes HCG regularly to stop testicle shrinkage. He also takes a low dose of Aromasin, just enough to stabilize his e2.
I few months ago, he decided to do a reboot, but he doesn't use a doctor at all. He did some research amongst other lifters and bodybuilders and they told him to do PCT for three weeks.
First stop all Testosterone (and other stuff he takes)
Week 1 - 3 x 50mg Clomid daily, 1,000 IU HCG EOD.
Week 2 - 2 x 50mg Clomid daily, 1,000 IU HCG EOD
Week 3 - 1 x 50 mg Clomid daily 1,000 IU HCG EOD.
After that, back to his cruise dose for 6 weeks and get new blood work.
It seems that in Europe, this is the recommended way to do a reboot. In the USA, bodybuilders are using something called HCGenerate ES and N2Guard to get the same results.
My friend felt like crap for all 3 weeks, no libido, aches and pains, inability to concentrate, tired all the time, but 2 weeks after he started TRT again, he was back firing on all cylinders. He was told NOT to take any form of AI during the three weeks.
Now here's my 2 cents. If it works for tens, if not hundreds or thousands of bodybuilders/weight lifters all taking illegal steroids, and they have had to pool knowledge and experiences over the years, why must I argue.
Now which would I rather trust, a doctor(?), seemingly no two of which ever think the same, or the pool of experiences of many people who have tested this over a long number of years? Do I really need to think about this.
Just my 2 cents.
