We have been getting a lot of questions lately asking “what are the best prohormone supplements for cutting, leaning out, getting ripped, etc. We understand the desire to lean out and get that ripped muscular look and wanted to write a brief article to address the question based on what prohormones are legally available in 2012.
Foundation Of A Best Prohormone Cutting Cycle #1: Your Diet
First of all, if you want to cut fat and get shredded muscle you have to the basics in place. The foundation of being lean is your diet and to train for MORE muscle mass. Muscle burns more calories than fat. So to keep it simple, the more muscle mass you have the more calories your body is organically burning. This creates an anabolic state that is makes it easier to reach calorie deficit, which forces your body to use the fat it has previously stored.
Now let’s talk diet real simple like. Without a reasonably clean diet and reducing your caloric intake, you will not magically lose weight simply because you are taking prohormones on a cutting cyle. For best results when running prohormones for a cutting cycle one must eat very little carbs and we suggest that carbs that are consumed be post workout. We suggest a Paleo diet that leaves out the fruit during the cutting cycle.
Foundation Of A Prohormone Cutting Cycle #2: Controlling Estrogen
Body fat loves and abundance of estrogen, we would like a minimal to moderate amount. What do we do?
Contrary to what you might hear from some guys, we all need some estrogen in our body to gain muscle mass….but, not to much! Fat tissue in males is the most prevalent site of androgen conversion in body. As a result, the more fat you carry the more potential you have to produce estrogen from androgenic anabolic prohrmone use. Overweight men need to be aware that controlling estrogen is paramount when using androgenic anabolic prohormones as they are at risk for breast enlargement/gynocamstia.
So, we highly recommend that cutting prohormone cycles include an aromatase inhibitor and your Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) also include a solid regimen of aromatase inhibitors.
This allows the user to disrupt the love affair between body fat and estrogen and serve them both an eviction notice from your body! We a desire those mature, developed muscles that have little fat and water retention in/around them, lots of veins (vascularity), and a very clear, discernible division between muscle groups, with very well defined abs and a lean hard muscular look from neck to ankles!
Foundation Of A Prohormone Cutting Cycle #3: HIIT Cardio Training
Cardiovascular exercise is a still a must for optimizing any exercise regimen and certainly during any prohormone cutting cycle. We do not suggest long sessions of steady state cardio however. There is a ton of research out there says HIIT (high intensity interval training) for short periods of time (10-20 minutes) produces a multitude of benefits and increases fat loss. Anabolic androgenic prohormone users should pay extra attention to their heart’s health checking their blood pressure and cholesterol, especially while engaging HIIT.
If possible, do your HIIT cardio training in the morning and on an empty stomach. Try to get 20 minutes eventually of intervals of some kind. For example 20 minutes of sprinting for 20 seconds at 90% of your max effort followed by 30 seconds rest. Or 30 seconds of hard swimming, 30 seconds rest. Repeat the interval over and over for 15-20 minutes. Start where you are at and if all you get in is a 7 minutes HIIT session, relax. You are still doing your body good.
Now that you have the foundation of diet, estrogen control and training in place you can pick your prohormones for cutting with confidence. The options for cutting compounds have diminished with the evolution of the laws regulation prohormones in recent years. There are a few really good, solid compounds left. We suggest following the above strictly and running one of the following compounds 8-10 weeks followed by the Rip and Recover Stack also listed below.
