    ??? Lifting PCT

    On the home page, under "Steroid Resources" click on "Steroids How To Come Off" and it says under step 8 and i qoute

    8.) Reduce your workout schedule. Avoid maintaining the same workout program as during steroid regime since this would only magnify the catabolic effect. The athlete should not come up with the crazy idea of compensating a possible loss of performance by increasing the extent and intensity of his workout since such an action would have a negative effect. Limit yourself to your basic exercises, train every muscle once a week, and try to maintain your strength as much as possible. Do not train more than four times a week and limit the workout sessions to 60 minutes. Several so called "experts" are of the opinion that the athlete after a steroid regime should avoid the heavy basic movements for some time and suggest that exercises are carried out more frequently with lower weights. Dear Reader, try it. Those who used to make 8 repetitions of squats with 400 pounds and now switch to leg extensions or leg presses with 12-15 repetitions will wonder how fast an upper thigh can lose size.

    Now I was under the impression that during PCT you had to increase intensity and lift harder, someone please explain?

    You have to lift smarter. keep your intensity high while avoiding overtraining. AAS inhibit cortisol, and you have to deal with this beast when you come off. Train smart, hard, and listen to your body!
