    *cortisol issues and keeping muscle gains*

    Ok my question is based on theory but i was wondering what people think.

    If a steriod cycle increases anabolism and triggars counter muscle hormones such as cortisol. Then say right after your finish a cycle you take 7oxo to combat the cortisol. Should a person even bother with trying to supress cortisol when coming off a cycle? Because when its supressed and you stop taking whats supressing the cortisol woulnt your body natrually spike cortisol once it is no longer supressed to achive equilibrium?

    If this is how it works then thats the prime reason why people lose muscle mass after comign off cycle?

    Nope. Really though do people 'lose' muscle post cycle? Or are water weight gains counted as 'muscle'? If you lose muscle alot of your lean mass post cycle it's because of not getting your natty test up the support the new muscle.

    True BigK, but more importantly is the calorie intake. Most people drop off a bit when on PCT or lose drive and appetite.
