How To Protect Your Hard Earned Muscle Mass And Strength Gains | Nutrition Fit



Getting to the “Next Level” is the passion and pursuit of most strength athletes. Especially ” young gun” lifters who want to gain muscle and strength TODAY instead of tomorrow. Young lifters in particular want to get to the NEXT LEVEL fast. Thanks to excellent supplements like PROHORMONES, DESIGNER CREATINE PRODUCTS and BLENDED PROTEINS lifters can dramatically accelerate gains in muscular mass and strength in very short time spans. Like it or not, the proper use and “cycling” of supplements such as TRIBOLIC , Methyl EFX and SYNTRAX MATRIX 5.0 BLENDED PROTEIN can help an athlete attain more muscle mass and strength in a couple of weeks than he could otherwise only do in 6 months or so. Most anyone who has ever utilized such products as part of their overall training regimen will attest to the validity of this claim. Simply put, you can take no supplements, try real hard to eat right , train right and wait a long 6 months to get to the “Next Level” – and even then you might not really get to the next level since overtraining and improper RECOVERY techniques will have circumvented your progress. Or you can “On Cycle” your training with TESTOSTERONE BOOSTERS and get to the “Next Level” effectively and efficiently in no time flat.

The gains you make while you’re on an “On Cycle” can be dramatic and impressive. What used to take months to acquire in terms of muscle mass and strength is now gotten in a couple of short weeks instead of months and months of lack luster results. Plus, on top of the gains – you actually feel better and perform better during training, making Working – Out an activity to look forward too instead of something to dread. The drawback of the “On Cycle” however is that you can’t and shouldn’t stay “ON” forever. That’s right, you’re eventually going to have to get “OFF” the “ON CYCLE” to give your body ” a break”! Most gurus in the supplement industry recommend being on an “ON CYCLE” for 6-8 weeks at a time. Getting off the “On Cycle” is an important chapter in your overall training regimen schedule and should be planned for carefully.

Failure to carefully plan for your “OFF CYCLE” periods of training and supplementation can often times mean that you’ll “GIVE BACK” or lose all the strength and mass gains you achieved while being “ON”. Just a little bit of planning and research on your part can effectively PREVENT you from having to “GIVE BACK” or lose any of your hard earned gains achieved during your “On Cycle”. As you get closer and closer to having to get off of your “On Cycle” you should be planning and researching the benefits of using POST CYCLE THERAPY PRODUCTS such as GENUINE TRIBULUS TERRISTRIS EXTRACT, and 6-OXO. These products effectively help the body to restore and balance out your testosterone levels naturally since the “ON CYCLE” PROHORMONES are so potent that they have shut down your body’s own need to make testosterone for itself. Without POSTCYCLE THERAPY PRODUCTS it can take your body a long time ( several weeks ) to crank up it’s own testosterone making capability – resulting in a long period of “flat” training days. The Key here is to make sure that this doesn’t happen – so be sure to utilize PCT products.

So at this point you are on your POST CYCLE THERAPY supplement regimen which is doing wonders to restore your body’s own testosterone. Even your SEX DRIVE is back to normal or even improved overall. But you still face the nemesis of losing A LOT of your muscle mass and strength – so your 2nd goal during your “OFF CYCLE” is to take some other SUPPLEMENTS in addition to your PCT products to stave off any deterioration of strength and muscle mass.

Believe it or not, you’re going to choose two of the Worlds most reputable, most documented and most effective supplements ever in order to KEEP the hard earned muscle mass and strength you got during your “On Cycle”. Used together and as directed, these two “Old School” supplements will keep you at the Next Level you achieved during your “On Cycle” instead of reverting back to the former lower level you came from!

HMB plus CREATINE used TOGETHER are the 1-2 punch you need to keep your muscle mass and strength during your off cycle. There is irrefutable evidence and research that supports the efficacy of these two often overlooked “Old School” supplements.

HMB has a ton of great research behind it substantiating it’s renowned claims of being able to help you prevent muscle catabolism ( protein breakdown ), and at the same time being able to improve your strength and lean body mass to fat ratio. One study on humans proved that after just one week of training and supplementing with HMB resulted a DECREASE of muscle tissue breakdown by a whopping 44 percent ( as compared to a control group that did not receive HMB during their training regimen ).

In addition to the muscle sparing effects, HMB has been proven to go even further in its attributes – namely the ability to help you the athlete to also improve muscle mass and strength. It almost sounds too good to be true, but it is true – ( Iowa State University has tons of documented evidence supporting HMB’s claim to fame – they conducted a lot of the independent research validating HMB’s awesome benefits for the athletes ).

HMB has been shown to increase strength over time in response to exercise. Simply put, HMB can amplify the positive muscle building effects you would receive from resistance training in general. The main idea to remember here is that during your “Off Cycle” when your muscles may “want to shrink” on you because your off the test boosting stuff – you can thwart that problem easily by taking 3 grams of HMB per day. You would want to start on HMB about 10 days before you’re getting ready to be off of your “On Cycle”. This way you can have it doing it’s “magic” in your system just in time for the beginning of your off cycle.

Now – don’t forget about HMB’s partner in crime during your “Off Cycle” , namely CREATINE MONOHYDRATE. Just plain old creatine monohydrate ( by itself ), not with all the other stuff that can be combined with it. As you know, Creatine is tremendously effective and delaying the onset of fatigue during exercise and also increases power output. This means that you can pump out more reps per set plus use more weight also! Precisely what you want to be able to keep doing while you’re on the “Off Cycle”. By combining HMB with Creatine you can effectively take advantage of powerful synergistic benefits not available with other run of the mill supplements. The idea is to make sure that you KEEP all the muscle and strength you acquired during your “On Cycle” so that when you do your next “On Cycle” you will be beginning from an even better standpoint than you did on the previous “On Cycle”. This ensures that you are progressing from cycle to cycle and bridging your “On Cycles” with great “Off Cycles”.

The icing on the cake is that HMB & Creatine are each very safe to use. To easily facilitate the use of HMB plus Creatine you can try BETAGEN by EAS. It combines both ingredients into an easy to use powder that you can easily mix in water once or twice a day. Or you can buy Creatine by itself and HMB by itself and take them throughout the day according to the label instructions. Personally, I trust HMB by EAS and PHOSPHAGEN ( pure creatine monohydrate ) by EAS. But again, you can take the headache out of trying to take these separately by using BETAGEN by EAS which combines HMB & Creatine together into one Killer of a formula.

In conclusion, the idea is to get on with your “OFF CYCLE” without having to lose any strength or muscle mass. You get there by using Post Cycle Therapy (such as tribulus terristris and/or 6-oxo) and also combining with the use of the powerful benefits of HMB & Creatine together. These two POWERHOUSE supplements are your key to lasting quality size & strength gains. Don’t let the “Old School” aspect of these two supplements prevent you from taking advantage of them! They are simple supplements to use, and like the old saying goes “Simple is Sophisticated”. Besides, these two supplements are considered so “Old” by most guys that YOU can have an edge by GETTING back on board with HMB & Creatine. Indeed, these 2 supps are so “Old School” that their now COOL. Try the combo of HMB & Creatine together during your “Off Cycle” combined with your normal post cycle therapy ( Tribulus etc. ) and you will not be disappointed. Your good luck is in your hands!
