Because GHRP-6 is a peptide hormone that will amplify the release of HGH from the pituitary gland, it makes sense that GHRP-6 cycles would generally be suited for cutting cycles and fat loss. Unfortunately, there is one aspect of GHRP-6 that tends to make it more suitable instead for bulking and mass gaining cycles for most people. That aspect is the ability for GHRP-6 to induce the most intense appetite stimulation in users that nothing else compares to. It has been demonstrated both clinically as well as anecdotally that in most users and mammals, GHRP-6 tends to stimulate what can only be described as agonizing hunger. Therefore, GHRP-6 cycles are said to often be best suited for periods of mass gaining and bulking. With that being said, GHRP-6 cycles can indeed be geared towards fat loss, but only if the individual can muster enough discipline and willpower to be able to fight the urge to eat too many calories.
GHRP-6, through its ability to amplify HGH release, can provide a solid amount of fat loss during phases of dieting. However, the majority of users will find that GHRP-6 is more often useful for bulking, and many users will often put on a significant amount of weight through its hunger inducing effects alone. The HGH releasing effect of GHRP-6 will indeed further support muscle growth and strength increases as well in conjunction with a caloric surplus that is often easily achieved with the use of GHRP-6. It must be made very clear, however, that the key determining factor as to whether or not one will lose fat or gain muscle during GHRP-6 cycles is the factor of diet and training. GHRP-6 can easily facilitate a caloric surplus or a caloric deficit and carry the results in either direction quite easily.
Because of the inherent nature of the compound and what it does, GHRP-6 cycles cannot be broken down and categorized into the typical three user tiers of cycles (i.e. beginner cycles, intermediate cycles, advanced cycles). As with nearly all HGH secretagogues, GHRP-6 cycles can only essentially be categorized into the following three cycle types:
– GHRP-6 cycles for muscle growth and fat loss
– GHRP-6 cycles for fat loss
– GHRP-6 cycles for anti-aging and general well-being
The determining factor in which of these three cycle types are engaged in or achieved is the user’s GHRP-6 dosing scheme, as well as the diet and training regimen of the user. It is important to understand that as with all Human Growth Hormone based compounds, cycles are in the long-term and must be treated as such. Synthetic HGH as well as HGH secretagogues such as GHRP-6 must be run in periods of at least 4 – 6 months or longer in order to experience any appreciable effects. The reason being is because Human Growth Hormoneis by nature a hormone that exhibits steady and cumulative effects on the body and body composition. Various changes and results can be seen sooner than others (such as the fat loss effects, within a matter of weeks) and other effects much later (such as the muscle growth and strength gaining effects, within a matter of months).
GHRP-6 cycles for the purpose of both muscle growth as well as fat loss require the administration of at least 100mcg of GHRP-6 at least three times per day for 4 – 6 months. Often times it is recommended that for even more pronounced and greater muscle growth and fat loss that the administration frequency is increased to above 3 times per day (ideally 4 – 5 injections per day). Such GHRP-6 cycles would ensure constant pulses of HGH that would be as close as possible to synthetic HGH administration.
GHRP-6 cycles that express fat loss exclusively in users would involve the administration of 100mcg of GHRP-6 two to three times daily for 4 – 6 months. Some small amounts of muscle and strength gaining might possibly be experienced in rare situations, provided nutrition and training accommodates this.
Anti-aging and general well ness cycles of GHRP-6 involve 1 – 2 injections daily of 100mcg GHRP-6 in each injection. A minimal administration protocol of GHRP-6 such as this one will induce a much smaller overall release of HGH from the pituitary gland, but just enough to ensure the positive health and well-being benefits, especially in older individuals.
GHRP-6 cycles are almost always conducted in tandem with a GHRH such as Mod GRF 1-29 (CJC-1295 without DAC) so as to maximize HGH output, which has been previously explained in great detail in this profile. GHRP-6 can also be utilized with anabolic steroids in much the same way that synthetic HGH can be utilized with them in order to provide a synergistic effect on muscle growth as well as fat loss. Synthetic HGH itself can and often is combined with HGH secretagogues such as GHRP-6, which allows the user to experience what would be considered higher overall blood plasma levels of HGH without having to utilize as much synthetic HGH. The manner in which this would typically work is the administration of exogenous synthetic HGH at a dose of 4iu immediately upon rising in the morning, followed by administrations of GHRP-6 mid-day (with another optional HGH administration 30 minutes after that), and then finally another GHRP-6 administration immediately before going to bed. Such a protocol in a GHRP-6 cycle ensures maximum benefit of HGH and is much more cost effective for the user than resorting to larger doses of synthetic HGH alone. The other benefit is the ability for the user to maintain pituitary function during the use of synthetic HGH, which would normally cause a shutdown of endogenous HGH production via the negative feedback loop. The use of HGH secretagogues such as GHRP-6 prior to bed would ensure the pituitary gland is still manufacturing endogenous HGH.
