The Benefits of Using Natural PCT During Training

The Benefits of Using Natural PCT During Training

Post Cycle Therapy involves using supplements that facilitate your body to achieve normal hormonal levels. 

First, let us understand the meaning of Post Cycle Therapy. To put it simply, after a cycle of performance-enhancing drugs like prohormones & anabolic steroids gets completed, the pharmaceutical-based protocol of natural PCT begins.

There are many benefits of PCT: 

1. Helps attain normal testosterone levels

It helps fasten the transition to normal testosterone levels while reducing the side effects. In other words, if you don’t resort to post cycle therapy after steroid use, it’ll become way harder for your natural testosterone levels to reach their original levels. 

And during that period, you will probably experience typical symptoms on account of low testosterone levels: fatigue, mood swings, increased fat mass, decreased muscle mass, among several other symptoms.

Worse, you can lose all the muscle gain that you have achieved after all that hard work! 

2. It neutralizes the side effects of steroids 

It counteracts some side effects of steroids like depression, erectile dysfunction, gynecomastia, & lethargy.

3. Maintains your muscle 

You make huge gains when you’re on the steroid cycle. PCT helps maintain the muscle you’ve built so far & the improvements you’ve made not only by burning fat but also by achieving better athletic prowess. 

4. Best utilization of recovery time 

One of the other benefits of PCT is that it optimally uses the time your body takes to recuperate from the previous cycle & get ready for the next steroid cycle. 

Meanwhile, as your body heals, you can set new workout & lifting goals. 

So, what happens if you don’t resort to PCT?

Consider that you’ve gone through a cycle of PEDs and don’t resort to the PCT protocol. It will take you at least a few months (maybe even longer) for you to restore your normal hormone levels.

And as we’ve already mentioned, you will be experiencing a number of side effects on account of low testosterone levels.

Here are some tips you must follow during training to optimize the effects of your natural PCT:

  1. The first rule of thumb is to keep training at the same frequency and always do high-intensity workouts.
  2. Take some rest after exercising as it helps regulate the release of hormones and relaxes muscles. Sleep for at least seven hours in a day.
  3. Try to keep the numbers high when you’re weightlifting. You might notice some decrease in strength levels, but that is nothing to worry about. It’s part of the process: your hormones are fluctuating like the ups and downs of a rollercoaster ride. So, you might witness frequent changes not only in performance but also in mood.
  4. Always stay on top of your diet game. This will help maintain your gains & will also speed up the recovery of your hormones. Consume as many fruits & veggies as possible and totally cut down the intake of processed food. 
  5. You can (and must) even add other naturally occurring food items to your daily routine to facilitate muscle growth.
