My stats are as follows 5’11 178lbs at 10% bf. I have been lifting for 10 years. I have been lurking on forums for years researching and playing with the idea of cycling. Next month I will 25 and for my birthday I wanted to buy myself some gear. I feel I have adequate knowledge to run a safe and effective cycle and am very excited and a little nervous. I will post my cycle hear and will welcome all comments and critiques as I only want to do what’s best for my body. My only real worry is getting bunk gear or even worse a bunk pct and messing up my hormones. I am getting pre cycle bloodwork done next week. I am receiving the gear from a friend of a friend who claims that they are all real and good to go. Before I go popping pills and injecting myself with something from a friend of a friend I would love for your guys input. I know not to even mention sources or ask but once I receive them I’d like to know things to look for or possibly post pictures of what I got( not sure if that is allowed) and see what everyone thinks. Sorry for the long winded first post I just want to be thorough and do things right.
The most common argument here when incorporating HCG during PCT is that HCG itself is suppressive. This is true and one particular way this occurs is though the constant binding of HCG which disrupts the endogenous pulsatile secretion of LH. A recent study which included the usage of 250 mcgs Ovidrel (rHCG) 2x/wk for 12 weeks demonstrated that the patients resumed normal HPTA function within four weeks upon cessation, without the usage of SERMs. Whatâ€™s even more interesting is that 250 mcgs rHCG is the equivalent of approximately 5,000 IUs uHCG. Therefore, putting things into perspective, a few additional weeks of suppression is nothing to be overly concerned about compared to and considering the 12 weeks of suppression incurred during the average cycle. The usage of HCG during PCT is a minimally intrusive variable where the benefits clearly exceed the associated costs.
