question about pct?

so iam finishing my cycle in 2 weeks then iam  starting pct. This was my first cycle so i want to ask some questions to make sure i don't lose my gains.

iam currently on a push/pull/legs split but i'd like to move to an upper/lower split or a 3 day full body workout after the cycle, should i do it or wait after pct??

Also i read an article here a few weeks ago on pct it advised including cardio in pct and whatnot. I don't mind adding cardio since  i gained some fat maybe 3 30 min sessions per week?

    Im not sure how the changing of your routing will change your gains or keeping of gains im a little lost sorry might be little bit late for me
     
    You could certainly add some cardio to reduce fat the fat maybe bloat/water retention and will go after pct mate

    I wouldn't add in extra cardio during pct if looking to keep all gains. 20mins light after each session wont hurth though, time to cut is after cycle and pct though

    IMO worth sticking with same routine, depending on the volume maybe even cut it down a little, make sure cals are kept high and good quality as well.

    You got all pct meds etc planned out dyskee? Remind me what the cycle was, sorry I forget..

    i would not do any cardio in PCT, in fact, dont try to lose fat in PCT at all because you will just lose muscle.
     
    eat plenty of good quality cals as alex has said. make sure you rest plenty and dont over do the training.
     
    what you got in mind for PCT?

    Would be my advice too, the only thing i ever change is calories, i like to try and squeeze as many more as poss during that 1st month or so in pct

    1. Adjust your nutrition according to the new situation. After discontinuance of the steroid intake the metabolism will go back to normal. This means that the athlete should reduce his daily caloric intake over the course of several days by 25-30%. The protein supply, however, should still be relatively high at 1- 1.5 g of protein per pound of bodyweight per day.
    2. Reduce your workout schedule. Avoid maintaining the same workout program as during steroid regime since this would only magnify the catabolic effect. The athlete should not come up with the crazy idea of compensating a possible loss of performance by increasing the extent and intensity of his workout since such an action would have a negative effect. Limit yourself to your basic exercises, train every muscle once a week, and try to maintain your strength as much as possible. Do not train more than four times a week and limit the workout sessions to 60 minutes. Several so called "experts" are of the opinion that the athlete after a steroid regime should avoid the heavy basic movements for some time and suggest that exercises are carried out more frequently with lower weights. Dear Reader, try it. Those who used to make 8 repetitions of squats with 400 pounds and now switch to leg extensions or leg presses with 12-15 repetitions will wonder how fast an upper thigh can lose size.

    gixer06- "reduce your calorie intake by 25-30% after the cycle" are you for real?
    if anything you need to eat even more post cycle to keep your gains, due to the increase in bmr.

    calm down, its life, mate, its only a game
