"anabolic rebound" , hypertrophy or just temporary super compensation??

I've heard this term a few times and heard several "coaches" talk about how they can add 20 pounds of lean mass in a couple months post contest stating that it's actual keepable gains. I personally have not see such a thing , I have experienced a big super compensation for a couple weeks after a show when calories are brought back up.
Just wondering if this is actually something that guys have experienced or of it's even a physiological possibility.??
What if a guy ran a cycle of 5-6iu HGH with some insulin during this time of that might make it possible to actually make solid gains , more than normal during the post contest phase?

I think it will depend how advance you are as somebody who train 15 years will have more temporary effect but somebody who has still a lot of gains to get before he will reach his limits. First case temporary and later more fat gain in second case lot of muscle lot of water and a little bit of bodyfat.

Doesn't sound right unless he had lost that muscle during his prep. I think it's very possible to get back what muscle you lost, however gaining brand new muscle tissue- not likely imo.

I don't know about the 20 lbs number but your body certainly is the most anabolic in the first few weeks/months back on high calories after a period of caloric restriction. It's what the zig zag-diet (I think this is how it's called) is based on.

Once again the secret is INSULIN SENSITIVITY!!!!

I cant remember where i saw it, but someone explained it to me like this.
After months of a deficit, gradually starving and your body fighting to hold onto its life reserves (Bodyfat), it would make zero sense (to the body, from a survival perspective) to add on additional tissue that is metabolic demanding and will increase the bodies demand for calories in the long term.

A simple explanation, and there is more to it, especially when enhanced. But from an initial observation, it makes sense.

However...

B-boy said it best.

Insulin sensitivity.

There is absolutely a Super compensation effect at play, especially in regards to the muscle fullness that is always evident during the rebound phase.

Could you gain some new muscle if you stick to the diet and lowered drugs for 12 weeks post comp? Absolutely. But i believe insulin sensitivity and the benefits of nutrient absorption that comes with this, is the main driver of the "muscle gain" that occurs after a contest season.

Think milos once said he made the best gains in the rebounds between shows.
