A lot of people talk about post cycle therapy in relation to anabolic steroids. I don’t do steroids, but I do use SARMs. So I do use post cycle therapy (PCT) solutions, and using Arimidex for bodybuilding post cycle therapy and gains maintenance is something I have done for a long time.
I want to talk to you in detail about why I decided Arimidex PCT was the best solution for me. I’ll talk about the effects of it, dosage, how good it is dealing with gyno quickly, plus any side effects you need to watch out for.
I’ll also talk to you about how Arimidex compares to the other big PCT supplements out there like Nolvadex and Clomid, plus I’ll tell you where you can find Arimidex for sale that is safe use.
What Is Arimidex?
Arimidex is an aromatase inhibitor, just like Aromasin. Now I need to be clear here on what the differences are in how they all work.
An aromatase inhibitor is a chemical that stops the production of aromatase. Aromatase is the hormone that is primarily responsible for the production of estrogen in the body. So an inhibitor binds to aromatase and stops estrogen formation, including the conversion of testosterone into estrogen
This is slightly different from what Nolvadex and Clomid do. They stop estrogen interacting in the pituitary gland, where it can minimize the production of testosterone if left unchecked.
So you have Nolvadex and Clomid which don’t stop the production of estrogen but stop it from minimizing testosterone production, and you also have Arimidex and Aromasin which stop the formation of estrogen in the first place.
Just to clear up one confusion, Arimidex is not a SERM, a Selective Oestrogen Receptor Modulator, in the way that things like Tamoxifen are. SERMs tend to be more invasive, which is why most of the big post cycle therapy supplements used are not SERMs.
How To Use Arimidex PCT
So the bottom line here is that Arimidex is a powerful anti-estrogen supplement, which is why Arimidex PCT is so widely used.
Arimidex PCT is really easy to use. You can just take a tablet in the morning and it works through the day. They aren’t that expensive either, there are no complex instructions, so there’s really no excuse to ignore post cycle therapy.
The only thing I would say is that you have to watch your cycle and symptoms. Gyno can come on quickly and be irreversible, so you have to have Arimidex to hand, and be prepared to slow, or stop, your SARMs cycle if you are starting to get suppressive symptoms.
How Good Is Arimidex For Gyno?
The big thing bodybuilders worry about is gyno symptoms, which basically means the development of breast tissue, starting around the nipples, and then growing generally on the chest.
This can be a disaster because once it’s started, it can be irreversible. If you have puffy nipples, it can already be too late. You have to use Arimidex on cycle if necessary, or at least make sure that you are using it religiously straight after a cycle of SARMs.
As long as you don’t let things develop, Arimidex for gyno is the perfect solution. You have to be alert to the symptoms.
The first signs of testosterone suppression and gyno symptoms will be:
- Low sperm count
- Lower ejaculation power and volume
- Mood swings
- Sensitive nipples/puffiness/lumps
- Water retention
Now I’m telling you not to let things go that far. Before you get gyno symptoms, as soon as you feel any signs of tiredness or any single warning sign, start that post cycle therapy immediately. That means you might have to use Arimidex PCT on cycle sometimes.
For me, it’s a warning sign that the SARMs dose is too high, or the cycle is too long. My body is starting to struggle with testosterone production and estrogen levels are shooting through the roof.
So soon as I see it happening, I will start my Arimidex PCT course, and cut back on the SARMs dose, and once I even stopped the cycle.
Remember guys that once you develop breast tissue it rarely goes away on its own. So if you let things go too far, even for just a few weeks, then you could have irreversible problems that need surgically dealing with. All for the sake of just spotting the warning signs, and being sensible with starting your post cycle therapy.
The Arimidex dosage will depend partly on the severity of the potential testosterone suppression you are suffering from. 0.5 mg (500 mcg) per day is a pretty standard dose. However some people find that too high, and it can cause side effects.
If you definitely have the signs of suppression, you should be doing that on cycle, and I would recommend the first week after your cycle to also do 0.5 mg. After the first week, you could be able to drop the same dose every other day instead.
But it’s tough to give you a good answer here because it will depend on who you are and the symptoms you are suffering.
You know your body, and if you start to see the signs of suppression, then start your Arimidex PCT course on cycle, and then consider lowering the dose of SARMs, or cutting your SARMs cycle short, if you’re still feeling suppressed after a few days.
In terms of the duration of post cycle therapy using Arimidex, I’ve always stuck to it for about four weeks, sometimes a little longer. If I’m feeling suppressed I’ll make the initial week or two a higher dose, and then tail off over the next 2-4 weeks.
Arimidex Vs Nolvadex
Nolvadex is the most popular post cycle therapy supplement used by bodybuilders. However, it’s not quite as effective as Arimidex, but it is milder.
I’ll also mention that some people say you shouldn’t combine Arimidex and Nolvadex as it can stop the mechanism of action of Nolvadex. I haven’t tried it, so I can’t comment, but it certainly makes sense for me to stick to one post cycle therapy supplement.
So Nolvadex is mild, and you can take a higher dose with more margin of error, compared to the very small dose of Arimidex you have to take. But when you are buying simple capsules/pills it’s not such a big deal.
However, Arimidex side effects are more substantial than Nolvadex side effects. So although it’s potentially more effective, you do have to watch out for side effects creeping up on you.
Arimidex PCT Side Effects
Arimidex PCT side effects are many, but most people don’t suffer from any at all, and you certainly won’t suffer from more than a few unless you take a very high dose for a long time.
Although there is a huge list of side effects that are possible with Arimidex most people will only ever experience the minor ones:
- Water retention
- Weight gain
- Aching joints
- Sore throat
- Hot flashes
The more serious side effect you need to be aware of is osteoporosis. This only happens at higher doses, over a long time. But it’s why I’m very careful about spacing out my SARMs cycles.
I’ll usually do an 8-10 week cycle, unless I’m stacking a high-dose in which case I stick to 6 weeks, followed by 3-6 weeks of post cycle therapy. I’ll then wait for at least the duration of the cycle and PCT period combined before I consider another cycle of SARMs.
Where To Find Arimidex For Sale
Post cycle therapy is vital, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you keep allowing suppression to happen, and you keep hammering high doses of SARMs or steroids, it could lead to total testosterone shut down, meaning a lifetime of testosterone replacement therapy.
Keep your SARMs cycle length reasonable, keep your dose reasonable, and at the first signs of any suppressive symptoms, start Arimidex on cycle, and consider lowering your SARMs dose.
If you can find pure Arimidex for sale online, then it will be fast-acting and you shouldn’t have any problems. Using Arimidex for bodybuilding is fine, even on cycle, but please watch the dose.
But the dose isn’t a problem if you buy Arimidex online from where I do. Swiss Chems sell it in convenient 0.5 mg tablet form, so just take one per day, or once every other day, or even cut them in half and take half a dose each day. Really simple to do.
100 tablets will basically cost you 100 bucks. So a dollar a dose, which means four weeks of Arimidex PCT will only cost you $28, which is peanuts when the alternative is a potentially lifelong problem with testosterone levels.
Add to that the fact that you can buy 100% pure SARMs from Swiss Chems as well, with post free shipping in the USA, and a moneyback guarantee, and it’s really a no-brainer to protect yourself and get the best quality supplements to boost your bodybuilding.
