I have been using PHs (and lately 1-T/4-AD transdermals) off and on for the past 2 years or so. I made my most significant gains about 1-1/2 years ago when I used 1-AD for 8 weeks. I went from 185 BW to well over 210 and had some HUGE strength gains. I kept all but 10 pounds of that a year later.
Anyhow, every cycle I have run since then always ends up the same - I get bigger and stronger while "on" then shrink back down to pre-cycle size and strength about 3 weeks into post cycle. Lately I have used 6-Oxo post cycle but still get the same result - anabolic Yo-Yo.
Is it possible I have reached my limits and the PHs are just temporarily raising the game or am I doing something wrong? I'm not a huge guy (5'10", 205 pounds) but I am about 45 pounds heavier than my brother who does not lift weights (I'm 41, he's 40 - we're both naturally ectomorphs). I've been lifting for about 26 years.
What do you think/recommend at this point?
