The best/most effective PH cycle lengths?
- 07-25-2006, 11:37 PM
I am currently doing a 8 week cycle trifecta of H-50 -5 weeks, TST-6 Weeks, and Zol- 6 weeks. I will do PCT for 60 days, remain PH free for another 30 days and then start again the following month= 8 weeks on 90 days off- repeat twice. 4 weeks I have always found to be too short except for supps like Superdrol. I usually make adjustments as needed during a cycle. I always have had success with doing what's best for my body whether it be extending cycles, stacking, or upping amounts. I have never experienced any serious side effects which would cause me concern. I do play it safe but I do it right.

it all depends on on the ph's, i myself like the 6-8 week cycles. i always frontload on liver supps to a certain extent depending on what im taking. i also pct on how i feel. usually after 4 weeks i feel great. it depends on the person some people cant handle a high dose 4 week superdrol cycle while others can do an 8 week superdrol/phera cycle without problems.im planning on a superdrol/phera cycle that will prob be 6-8 weeks depending on how i feel with at least 4 weeks pct followed by a phera or finigenx cycle with m-trn and m-zol at the end to shape up for summer...im prob gonna run the phera/finigenx/trn/zol for 8 weeks:

according to this thread, "4 weeks on/4 weeks off 2 times in a row" is the "best" way to cycle.
...does this also apply to pulsing PH's? or just straight cycles?

4 on-4 off helps minimize the sides, right?
However, does anyone have blood/lipid #'s to back this up, or is this stricktly experience based? I prefer science to opinion, but hey there is a lot expertise on this board, so I am hoping there is more to this thread than preference...
Thanks ahead of time!

This isnt really a good poll as it depnds on the steroid taken. For example if you were taking Superdrol you would cycle it 3-4 weeks as the gaines cease then. If you were taking Halodrol you would run for 6-8 weeks as thats when it realy kicks in. All depends on the roid.

ive been going with a 4 week on, followed by 4 week pct, followed by another 2-3 weeks rest...
ive been running this cycle with epi for my last couple of times and its been working pretty well, definitely able to hold on to my weight and strength gains after pct, and the extra 2-3 weeks off is a good way to eat up/sleep up for the next run...

I did a 1-4 m drol, 3-6 epi cycle and it was very nice. Finished in march 2008, next one I do start in january.

i think it depends on whatyou're using. for instance, ive run alot of m1t cycles and sometimes i do a 2 weeker with NO PCT and id get very good gains for 2 weeks. id take a month off, then do it again. i did this for literally almost 2 years. crazy i know. but i was young and got addicted to the gains.
i get bloodwork every year because of the medications im on, its mandatory, and thank god my liver isnt messed up cause of it.
when id go longer, usually 8 weeks, id use liquid nolv for PCT and nothing else for about 6 weeks. other PH's ive found that longer cycles work better. longer meaning more than 2 weeks. it seems to take 2 weeks for them to FULLY kick in.
deadlift or DONT lift

When I was on andro tech M1t 10mg. i found that cycling of 3 on 3 off worked great for me ! I did this 3 times in the span of 5 months i went from 195lbs to 226lbs at my largest strength gains where incredible!

Ive been told by some very very long time users that you should only be on cycle for 12-16wks per year. Now its up to you how you break it up but anything more than that you run into lots of problems.
Ex. 4wk on, 4wk pct, wk nothing, repeat. Or 8wk on, 6wk pct, 6 wk nothing.

Last cycle was 4 on 8 off....Was methylated.....Methyl E by EST-Great product....This cycle comin up will be 6 on 12 off......Reason I am doing 6 on is because of the supplements on hand will be m-drol bridged into methyl e and 11 oxo.....we'll see how it goes

Little confused with some of these posts, we talking ph/ps or straight aas? Are people running 8 weeks of orals?

Prohormones are often the first step into anabolics for many people, and as such, PCT isn't often considered. The second go is often an oral-only steroid cycle, with at least basic PCT. This often spurs the person into taking the step into injectibles, proper pct, and lots of internet research. By this time, the user knows what side-effects to watch for, sources for everything they need, and they start to know their own bodies a little better.
My favourate prohormone, 1-AD, will shut your 'nads down in 3 or 4 weeks,(from personal experience), which is why it was often stacked with 4-AD. Personally, I find 4-AD just bloats me up worse than dianabol, i don't think it is very good at keeping test levels stable (the transdermal is probably better).
So 4 weeks on, 4 weeks off, is probably OK for 1-AD without PCT. Methyl 1-test (M1T) may be difficult to use for a full 4 week cycle - it seems quite a dirty, feel-bad compound, in addition to being liver-toxic. 1-AD is a less-efficient, but very clean way to get 1-test into yourself.
I'm now familiar with "proper" steroids, but I don't look down my nose at prohormones, prosteroids, or designer steroids - they all have their niche. In fact, I'm on a 60 day 1-AD cycle - with a tweek.
I'm actually running a moderately-dosed 10 week test cypionate cycle (500mg / week), which had a turinabol kickstart. I ran turinabol at 50mg a day, except for days when I had aches and pains, in which case I used 30mg, and 10mg dianabol pre-workout (the extra estrogen and water is sometimes useful, I can bounce those weights).
4 weeks of 17a-methylated orals is enough, I've gained 14lb so far and the test has now kicked in. I would like to add a dryer compound along with the test, whilst giving my liver a rest. Injectible primo is expensive, and 2 injections per week of test is enough shots for me - call me a wuss if you like. Primo tablets are an option, but well out of my price bracket - I'm not Bradd Pitt preparing for a movie role. They aren't methylated, but a fair portion of primo makes it beyond the liver first pass because of it's structure - it has a double bond in the 1-2 position.
1-AD (and 1-testosterone, for that matter), has this identical double bond to primo, which is why it was the most efficient of the true prohormones. So that's why I'm running 1-AD in a "real" cycle - it's my cheap, strong primobolan alternative. It works very quickly, adds lovely clean striated bulk, and gives my liver a rest from methylated steroids.
I found, running 1-androstenediol on its own, that it's an extremely dry compound - like winstrol (but without the aching elbow tendons), and it would add 10-12lbs reliably in 30 days at 3 x 100mg per day.
So in my opinion, 1-AD should be cycled for 3 or 4 weeks (without 4-AD), or a few weeks longer if using 4-AD and basic PCT.
I'm trying 2 months - but I'm also using an injectible long-ester testosterone, hcg to re-awaken my balls every few weeks, and PCT complete with the kitchen sink at the end.
If you don't use proper PCT at the end of a cycle of 1-AD, superdrol, M1T, or any of the strong prohormones / designer steroids that actually work, then at least continue training - this is your time to throw in all those other supplements like tribulus, ZMA, creatine etc. You should still have most of your gains a month or two later, when the boys are back in the barracks, so to speak.

I have done several cycles of prohormones. I prefer a 6 week cycle with 4 weeks of proper PCT including serm. I'm thinking of starting a cycle of P-Plex bridging with turinabol to give harden my gains from P-Plex. What do you all think of this cycle?

The only cycle length I run is 6 weeks. Its the best for getting and keeping gains. I will even run 6 weeks with harsher compounds such as SD by bridging it into a milder compound.
6 week cycles FTW!!

Epistane about ... Do you think 4 weeks with a protocol that's good? Gains will be good?

I agree with Rick 6 weeks are the way to go. Especially since you get water weight so quickly during the first few weeks if you stop after only 3-4 weeks you lose a higher percentage of overall weight since you didn't pound out that extra lb or two of muscle. If you can't handle the sides for 4+ weeks reduce the dosage for weeks 5-6 and think of it more as a cruise which can not only allow more time to get gains but IMO the more workouts you have with your new weights your lifting the better chance you have at being able to lift them when your natural.

this is a ridiculous question? the most effective structure or length completely depends on the type of compound your talking about. To say a 3 week halodrol cycle is the best way to run the PH is ridiculous but to say the best way to run SD is 6 weeks is insane aswell. its all relative to the substance/compound being discussed. whats good for one is not for another.

Is the 30 Day Mass Andro Stack a good one? It has LG Sciences M1D Andro, Form-XT, M-DRL, Creatine/Agmatine, Trien, and GHenerate. Really looking for a good 3rd cycle prohormone stack!!!

Ive heard that 6 weeks on a cycle of havoc gives great results but majority of users say stick to 4 weeks. Any feedback I can get from this due to the fact I plan on taking havoc for 6 weeks
