8 month Plan
Ok I've got some AAS experience under my belt and am planning to start this in the fall and continue thru May 2010. This is like the balls to the wall I know. Im looking to gain and keep close to 30lbs of lean body mass here. I dont really care if I drop much bf, which Im sure I will with the second installment.
Diet is always in check! I thought I finally had broken over that 200 and some change weight and 10%bf but then I came down with a severe case of bicep tendonitis (CJC-1295/GHRP-6 combo helped ) then tore tendons in my foot which put me out of the gym for close to 12 weeks. Add in having low cash flow and bam back down to where I was before (a little heavier)
Start: August 31st
End: January 2nd
Week 1-6: Dbol
Week 1-6: Adrol
Week 1-6: hGH
30iu's/week (10iu's Mon/Wed/Fri Post-Workout)

-igf-1lr3 50mcg (5on/2off)
Week 7-16: hGH
4iu's 5on/2off (morning)
*Im taking 2 weeks off here because I will be traveling alot. I should be able to stay on the hGH (it's insulin )

i love this!!!
i would just stay on an not come off, and run hCG every other weekk starting week 5 at 250 iu E3D for 3 shots.

no no no no
your recovery will be **** hard to get natty levels back after that long a run
unless you plan on going onto HRT afterwards.
05-24-2009, 03:47 PM
Low cash flow...?? Doesnt look low to me with those peptides. I think HCG starting a few weeks prior to the first pct is the only way to get some actual recovery out of that short of an off time.
05-24-2009, 05:28 PM
the time on = time off rule sounds really good to me right now. And you can't stay 6 months on man and expect a smooth recovery!!!!
why not just run 12-14 week cycles with 12-14 weeks off in between?

like I said in my first post in this thread, unless you're planning on going onto HRT after you stop your cycle then the OP should rethink this. Pardon me, I have no clue what this person's life or job is like (whether they are professional or not). Are you a professional bodybuilder that is willing to sacrifice your lifetime production of testosterone (inducing hypogonadism)? If you're not then you should rethink this.
ZeroV, I just read a post of yours elsewhere on this board saying you had never run a steroid cycle. Yet you're here with the first post in this thread encouraging this person to run a stupidly long steroid cycle. Get a clue bro and stop encouraging people to abuse steroids.
05-24-2009, 08:24 PM
I see the issues you guys are talking about. I have never been on that long of a cycle and really do have no idea how hard it is going to be to recover. Hence making this thread.
I have had both kinds of friend who have been on for over 2 years and ones that run 8-10 week cycles are off for 6 weeks and then jump on again so its just a mix of opinions form them
Knock on wood so far so good with recovery, but nothing this long.
O an no, not a professional bodybuilder, working on being a pro at somthing else tho

Distilled is a smart dude...lol I think he knows whats what. Hey distilled is there a reason for this one? Say a specific show you plan to do or something?

I personally see a few issues with your second plan - namely, the odd manner in which you want to end the cycle! Given the length of suppression here, I would rather choose to end the cycle with a less suppressive compound, rather than the [...arguably...] most suppressive compound of your cycle: Tren A. Ideally, I would end the cycle with the least suppressive compound [Testosterone] in a semi-tapered fashion, slowly ramping the dosage downward while implementing hCG. Given the length of this cycle, that may assist in recovering more efficiently.
Secondly, and this may be solely my opinion, but cycles should be uni-purpose - that is, recomposition, cut, or bulk, not a mixture of the three! We have to remember that the mass we accrue matures as the cycle progresses, and, therefore, is more susceptible to dissipation when calories dip.
If this were me [which it is not, I know] I would break this into two cycles, over a longer period: an 8 week lean bulk with T. Prop, D-Bol, and Tren-A, then an equally long cut with the same compounds + a competent AI to diminish bloat from the D-Bol [if I recall correctly, it occupies the GR to the same degree as Tren, and therefore poses to be equally "anti-catabolic"]. Obviously, a robust P.C.T., ran between them!

Also nice use of the word "robust" in the AM fourm, you canadians have a better vocab than I thought

don't know anything about injectibles, so i'll keep this short and sweet.
whatever your choice, best of luck DW. nice to see you back and posting more often.

and there are plenty of people who have recovered after a long cycle like this as well as people who havent. take the neccesary precautions, know what your getting into. To me his plan is solid with a few things here and there i would change
05-25-2009, 01:43 AM
have you read anything from seth roberts about tapering? it actually shows positive recovery as tapering down natural production rise (a little) because there isnt much more hormone as there was before.
it doesnt "taper off" itself, yes there is a half life but that is different then a taper.
05-25-2009, 01:49 PM
Hormones are not tinker toys, and A doesn't = A. There are different ways to be shutdown, and a lot of processes at work here. So, yes, the Tren will shut him down more than the previous weeks of Test, particularly if it is run at the very end. This is why compound choice is important: different hormones have different effects on sex-hormone receptors, binding proteins and differing effects at different stages of the hormone biosynthesis process [hypothalamus, pituitary, gonads, localized enzymatic conversion]. Ending any cycle with Trenbolone is not a wise choice.
Nope again, for the same reasons. Effects on the AR, SHBG/albumin, regulation of the ER and so on play key roles in how quickly and effectively one recovers. While natural Testosterone production will be nil during the taper, these other mechanisms respond in a dose-dependent manner to changes in serum levels of androgens. So, essentially, tapering the amount of serum androgens "sets up" these mechanisms for a quicker recovery upon the production of natural T.Tapering off test will just elongate the process of coming off...You stop test and don't start PCT for 2 weeks...why? Because it tapers itself off.

Actually I believe dht derivitives are more harsh on lh levels compared to others however not 100 % sure

Don't run IGF for longer than 4 weeks (go 4 on 4 off). Pulse the GH in the 4 week off cycles between the on IGF cycles. I'd run the GH ED instead of mon-wed-fri.
I'd also get some GHRP-6 (GH secretatogue) for PCT to help with natty IGF levels.
05-26-2009, 01:58 PM
Ok I don't want to get into an e fight because its not my style nor do I want to represent ai in a negative manner however just to note a few things. I thought the same as you as far as tapering itself however natural production will be better if don't over time as oppsed to just those 2 weeks. Also shbg is lowered while on aas not raised
So I'm done with this thread but I want to ask you nicely to pm seth roberts or get his book for a better understanding of hormones or just how things work in a more clear understanding or different way that you think
05-26-2009, 02:18 PM
maybe just running test-e at 250 for week 16, 125 for 17, 62.5 wk 18 + 19, start pct week 20... I agree that the tren at the end particularly with just the dropping off test levels from the ester clearing doesn't sound like fun or great recovery
05-26-2009, 02:27 PM
I would not say it is up in the air. The debate is only on dosage, and not necessarily that it is occurring. In certain dosages, Progestins certainly seem to have a proandrogenic effect - however, the dosages used by most with Tren A., for example, seem to exceed that. The debate in terms of Progestins' antiandrogenic effect, in my opinion, is dosage, and not whether or not it is occurring.2.) This downregulation is up in the air still, valid arguments for both sides.
Yes, but you are missing the point here: with the Tren where it is, it would be suppressing these mechanisms to a [most likely] far greater degree than Test., alone at the same point in the cycle. Why you would choose to place the most patently suppressive compound at the end of a cycle is odd, to say the least.3.) LH is already being suppressed with just test. This is why HCG is good to use in PCT, although it can suppress LH if use incorrectly. Using during cycle may keep the "mechanism in place" as you say.
As Seth Roberts has mentioned on this site, suppression is not some linear on/off switch that is flipped the same by every compound. Being suppressed involves affecting a wide-range of endocrine processes, and each one is affected to differing degrees by different hormones.
No, I am saying they do different things, which is the thrust of the "compound choice" argument afoot here; you are saying they do the same things, Gixxer.You're basically saying tren will do what testosterone does (bio/cellular) but do so in an "enhanced, more expressed" manner. What is the relation then of testvtren ratios. Is 100mg of tren ED more powerful than 2+gs of test a week in terms of shutdown? or 500mg of test a week for 15 weeks vs 700mg of tren a week (100mg/day) for 4 weeks?
Besides all this, can we agree that his best attack might be to stop tren a week before he stops test. Giving himself a week for tren to clear, then 2 for the test.
My point was that Testosterone and Trenbolone are vastly different compounds, and trying to relate them in an equated dose-dependent fashion completely ignores the unique effects they have on the all the processes I mentioned above. And so, you do not consider T v., Tren in regard to dose-dependency, but you consider them both individually in terms of the effects they will exert on the HPGA/AR/binding globulins and so forth. It would seem you are not taking into account the interaction between the PR and the AR: a progestin is going to have vastly more antiandrogenic effects at that high of a dosage, while Testosterone, being the body's natural chief androgen, will not.
Again, Testosterone does not "taper off"; an ester tapers off. The point is, again, that going immediately from 'X' mg/week to nothing starts the body off at zero-point; tapering sets up these mechanisms [not sure why you put this in quotations] to expedite recovery.You are making this out to be a long and drawn out process. How long do you think it takes for the body to implement these "mechanisms"...What are you suggesting as a taper? It seems like a highly unnecessary step. Test does taper off on its own.
I may be oversimplifying it, but you are over complicating it.
If I were coming "off", I would certainly like to lessen the shock, rather than exacerbate it with an incredibly suppressive compound. An analogy between your method and mine would be jumping into an almost-freezing pool head-first, or walking in slowly with a wet-suit on. The body is going to be "shocked" far less in the latter example.
Where did I say I would? He mentioned the pain of EOD injections and SubQ has been shown to have a higher non-SHBG-bound-T: Total T., ratio, most likely due to site selection in the SubQ groups.Why would you want to shoot SubQ? Higher risk of cellulitus

Only thing about the second cycle you posted is the tren, maybe have it more central in your cycle rather than at the end that way you can get into your stride earlier in the cycle and limit any negative influence it would have going into pct. Besides, running it to the end while dropping test could mean you're effectively doing a tren only cycle going into pct and who in their right mind does tren only?
If you really wanted to run a cycle into 2010 then you could bridge it. You'd still be shut down but it would give your body a break from some sides, not that I think it's a particularly good idea though.
