Firstly, its common practice today to do cycles of Pro-hormones, these convert into Active steroids in the human body, Designer steroids which are already active and designed to give to the benefits of steroids with less of the sides, (Doesn’t mean they do) And the well known AAS. Test, Deca, Tren, Winny, Dbol, Anadarol, Anavar, Equipoise, and others…
These synthetically increase the amount of testosterone in the body leading to greater mass…faster recovery, increased appetite in some cases or decreased like in Anavars… Steroids add mass, there is no doubt, and if you eat well, train hard, get rest, and do a proper pct the gains can be kept.. but there is an aid that you might all be over looking – ADD IN PEPTIDES!!!
Peptides like GHRP-6, CJC, Ipamorelin and others like MGF and IGF can offer real benefits to a steroid user, perhaps even allowing less steroid to be used for the same results.
GHRP-S like GHRP-6 offer stimulated appetite, greater GH levels.. so think faster recovery… and as we all know, increased GH leads to increased IGF.. injecting synthetic IGF doesnt work quite the same as when you raise your own levels through increasing GH..
Steroids increases IGF and lower Cortisol… These are 2 aspects in which you recieve some of the potential benefits from AAS.. adding a Growth hormone releasing peptide, increases IGF even more, and even though it will raise cortisol, because your using AAS that aspect is somewhat negated. Growth hormone releasing peptides can also help burn fat by increasing glycogenesis, which is when glucose molecules are added to chains of glycogen for storage,this allows for greater Glycogen uptake, and at the same time increases Lipolysisget a bigger leaner you… and the added GH can help prevent bad skin, often caused by AAS.
Greater IGF levels cause an increase in Hypertrophy of the muscle, and activation of satellite muscle cells allowing them to mature… The added Anabolic affect of the AAS and you can really change your physique in a very short period of time.
CJC increases IGF levels more dramatically than any other GHRH.. And if its used for short periods, no longer than 12 weeks, then it can really increase muscle mass at a dose of 2000mcg upwards a week. As a warning higher doses can cause drowsiness as it is a very usefull sleep aid for those suffering with insomnia in that it increases REM and Slow wave sleep. This is also your most Anabolic period of rest, during slow wave sleep, your body recovers and grows… something to keep in mind… being sleepy isnt always a bad thing.
If you are on a bulk… Hexarelin or GHRP-6 can increase hunger and appetite so much that its possible to add over a 1lb a day, Anyone who’s camped next to the refrigerator after a dose of either will know exactly what im talking about, as your craving for food makes you feel like a junky as you shake and perspire barely able to get the food in your mouth fast enough… A huge benefit if size is your goal.
So far we have really only looked at the advantages in brief detail at what peptides can do on cycle… but what about during pct?
PEPTIDES DURING post cycle recovery.
For me personally this is where Ipamorelin really comes into its own, As we all know during PCT cortisol wants to rocket, and as it increases it takes away some of your circulating free test, and trys to cause fat storage, Ipamorelin has little to no action on prolactin or cortisol.. 2 big enemies during PCT. ..And as as a unique peptide being able to cause a secondary release of gh about 6 hours after the first, its ideal to use at night… Many users are finding a 1000mcg shot right before bed, helps recovery and sleep no end and they wake feeling refreshed and dry.. not puffy as with other GHRP-S.
Increasing GH is very important during PCT as IGF levels are also declining, if your taking Nolva, then the decline can be even more dramatic, making it nearly impossible to add any muscle, and also really hampering your ability to maintain gains..
Here in this situation a fast acting GHRH like semorelin, and Ipamorelin, work together in tandem to increase GH and IGF levels systematically…
What’s you can increase muscle retention while still losing body fat.
I suggest increasing doses for the length of your pct… something like this….
This short burst cycle with increased doses,( you could always add in a midday dose around 2pm, but i personally prefer not too as i get drowsy at work.. but if thats not a problem then you could).. Really can help your PCT recovery no end.. some of my clients have even added size while losing fat during this period.. where lets face it normally the opposite occurs.
