what sort of diet on pro-hormones

I was thinking of doing a Epi/phera-plex cycle in the not too distant future. I've already had a lot of great advice from you guys about how to stack it etc.

Now I'm wondering about diet:

Currently I'm cutting and I expect to finish it early June and then perhaps make small changes over the rest of June.

During the summer months I was hoping to maintain my physique (est 9-10% b.f) and try and gain a bit of strength during the process.

So my question is whether an Epi-Phera stack would work well on just maintenance calories? Or slightly more but not so much as I put on a lot of fat over the 7 or 8 weeks I run it.

edit: When I say maintenance, I mean just enough to stay at a constant b.f. so I'll eat an extra 500 or so above my actual maintenance amount in order to gain muscle

I want to stay in shape for the summer and I also have less commitments so it's easy to be strict with the food eaten, the time I eat it and when I train etc than in the winter.


Cheers for any help

    Its all dependant on training style, intensity, you present weight, body comp etc etc. So it is completely individual for a trainer as to what they would do.

    But to give you some idea I will attempt to explain how I tackle it this area of my training.

    I like to think of it like a set of scales. If I feel like I am tipping to far to the fat side of the scales I will counter act it with less calls or more cardio. If I feel my strength is dropping too much (which is important for me) I will lower cardio and upp cals.

    I am currently on PP consuming around 5,000 cals per day weighing 16 stone 12lb at around 19%bf. Im gaining weight but not fat at present. My strength is going up nicely so I will maintain at this level. But if my strength gains slow down at any point on this cycle I will upp cardio as my main objective is strength on this cycle.

    You can cut on any compound as far as I am aware but some are better than others. PP is not one of the best for cutting.

    M-Dien/ EPI or Halo/Epi stacks would be better suited to what you want by the sounds of it. You could run these at just above maintance cals and get a god body recomp effect. Leaving you lean and slightly bigger for the summer.

    I hope this gives you something to start with and good luck.

    Actually, what about running just epi on it's own for 4 weeks or more?

    The reason I'm stacking Phera is because I had good gains last time and I have a tub left.

    I've never actually tried epi maybe it's best to try it on it's own first anyway?

    Would I experience any decent gains on just epi on a calorie controlled diet?

    if so could you recommend a suitable dosage?


    Cheers

    Phera is supposed to be wet isn't it?

    If so then for that reason alone i would imagine you woudldn't consider it (since you want to keep that lean look you worked for).

    Like above i suppose you would stick to:

    Dry compound
    Maintanence calories
    Light cardio
    Spread the food out

    All guess work from me, another thing to consider is whether you are carb sensative.

    Goodluck, i am considering an epi cycle to lean up, never used aas before.
