Ok, I know I'll get flamed for this, right out of the box most people first reaction will be "your nuts, haven't you done any research", but here goes, think about, tell me your thoughts and help me refine the idea if you see any merit it. Remember most great advances in science came from going against conventional wisdom.
The idea -
Starting 2 weekks post cycle, when your test levels really start to bottom out, and your most at risk for losing your gains, inject a very small amount of prop (I still need to figure out the dose). The idea here is to supply some Test, so your not a zero, thus helping you retain your gains. The tricky part is to dose it so that your blood levels of Test will be above nothing but BELOW normal. Your hypothalmus sends a signal to your pituitary to release LH every time your test levels are below normal. If your normal test level is 400ng/dl and you bring it up to, say 250 ng/dl then you should start to get some natural action from the endocrine system, in response to the Test deficit. I realize this would still be somewhat inhibit the HPTA, but it shouldn't SHUT it down. As your HPTA starts to work again, you can reduce the prop dosage. Your trying to maintain a close to normal Test level through a combination of natural test (because it should be comming due to the test DEFICIT) and exogenious test.
I know tapering has fallen out of favor, and for good reason, but thiis idea is a little bit different.
It may require several blod tests to fine tune.
