PRT 101 – Handling Suppression – Part 2
A short and simple explanation about how to handle testosterone suppression after your research!
How To Successfully Do A PRT?
What Kind Of Research Did You Do?
It’s very important to know the “classification” of your cycle.
Knowing which compounds you use and what their effects are is the key to know the impact they will have on your test subject.
There is a lot of information around on the net with all kinds of side effects, or even no side effects, about SARMs and other compounds. A lot of this info is not that correct.
So make sure you get your sources right. And yes, every kind of research with these compounds has side effects.
In terms of testosterone suppression, you might follow this chart. It will give you a good view of how suppressive each compound is individually.
As you might see you should not hesitate and always have PRT auxiliaries on hand because even the mild compounds are quite suppressive.
Are you doing a simple “beginner” research or are you into advanced researching?
Well if you are into advanced researching, we hope you don’t need this article anymore.
For a “beginner” research it’s very important to have all your basics on board.
We might call a simple “beginner” research a one compound cycle, or at least one compound with suppressive characteristics.
So MK-2866 with MK-677 or with GW-501516 or both still is a simple research project in terms of suppression.
This is as well a mild research project so you could do this without a PRT afterward. But it’s still wise to have a PRT-protocol on hand.
An LGD-4033 only (or with MK-677 and/or GW-501516) research, is as well a simple “beginner” research project.
But it’s more important to know that LGD-4033 will be a lot more suppressive than MK-2866.
So you should choose for a PRT-protocol afterwards to recover properly.
Which Options Are There?
In part 1 we already went by all our SERMs you should use in your PRT-protocol for handling testosterone suppression.
The options we talk about now are more the different kinds of PRT-protocols.
A normal PRT will consist of 4 weeks of a SERM. So that is the very basis of any kind of PRT.
The “normal” PRT
A normal PRT starts after your research cycle. So after your 8-12 weeks research, you will do 4 weeks of PRT with a SERM.
In most cases you will use Clomiphene, Tamoxifen, or Enclomiphene.
In case of an advanced cycle with a combination of suppressive compounds, it’s wise to administer 2 SERMs to your test subkect for a full recovery. The best combination then is Clomiphene along with Tamoxifen.
The most important is that you continue this PRT for the full 4 weeks. That is the most basic protocol.
The SARM+SERM protocol is getting more popular these days.
It consists of starting your PRT within your research.
Normally you would do this during the last 4 weeks of your research.
It has a few advantages over the normal PRT:
- No or fewer side effects of suppression during research
- Faster recovery after your researc
For the SARM+SERM protocol, there are even more advanced protocols that consist of starting your SERM along with your research.
You should check out this great e-book for more info on it.
The best SERM for this protocol is Enclomiphene. Be sure to check out part 1 for all the info on this new SERM we have.
A Few More Tips To Take Away
- Get bloodwork done
It is the only way to know the values pre-research and after research.
When you know this, you know which kind of PRT you need
- Better safe than sorry
You can better do a small PRT than no PRT (when you did not do bloodwork).
Even mild cycles can have a big suppression effect in some test subjects.
So you better do a mini-PRT just to be sure.
A mini-PRT includes a low dosage of a SERM for a short period.
- Know your research compound(s)
Be sure to know whether how suppressive your compound is.
A compound that is really suppressive, like S-23, needs a proper PRT and no mini-PRT
- Do not hesitate when using multiple compounds for the research
If you are researching multiple compounds, you should really administer a proper PRT-protocol..
