    Taking T3 during pct?

    Just an idea.. could be a huge mistake but I have some T3 on hand and im trying to figure out how to keep kost of my gains. Im coming off cycle in about 3 weeks and I want to reallt aolidify as much of my gains as I can.

    Im considering eating just as much as when i was bulking and maybe even more but throwing in some t3 that way I get my metabolism up and can eat more food and maintain my weight without putting on too much fat. My fear is when I come off cycle Im going to get fat trying to maintain my weight and Id like to try and just hold my weight while maybe adding in something to add to my metabolism

    horrible idea . never run T3 without being on AAS. and definitely do not run it when your hormones are completely down regulated like they are going to be during PCT.

    if you've been training hard during this cycle and you been eating 6+ meals per day , then your metabolism is cranking along just fine right now.
    taking T3 will not allow you to eat more and maintain gains, it will simply 'metabolize' and catabolize calories and will not choose fat over muscle, it will take your hard earned muscle and turn that into fuel.


    Clenbuterol on the other hand, unlike T3, is an anti-catabolic fat burner. it will preserve muscle mass while burning fat . T3 will use muscle mass for fuel. add T3 in when you have no anabolic hormones in your body what so ever and your test levels are totally crashed, and you'll shrivel away

    Sorry to hijack but are you advocating using clen during pct? Ive heard it gives a "zippy" feeling and i could use an edge until my next cycle. And i have some clen on hand that ive been scared to use bc i assumed its catabolic like t3. School me ol' wise one

    Clen works on the sympathomimetic nervous system. if by "zippy" you mean increased body temp, heart rate, and nervous system stimulation (jitters and shakes) then yes. I personally don't like stimulants and the feeling that clen gives me (irregular heart beat as well).
    BUT its a pretty good fat burner that doesn't eat away at muscle . in some studies on animals Clen has shown to be slightly anabolic at most and anti-catabolic at least , meaning it burns fat but preserves muscle. T3 on the other hand is catabolic and will mobilize muscle or fat for fuel equally.

    personally no I don't advocate the use of Clen during PCT (thats an old school method guys used to use thinking that Clen was powerful enough of an anti-catabolic to help keep gains while on cycle with zero suppression , but its not that anabolic at all). I advocate food, lots of food, and heavy training during PCT to help keep gains .

    Yep thats what i do, eat big and lift heavy during pct. i actually feel myself start to gain again a few weeks after pct ends. I'll shelf the clen

    I also don't recommend T3 without at least a low dose of test.
