With most of the methylated orals, the recommendation is to cycle no longer than 6 weeks; less for some orals. Everyday, I read about some dude that blew up 20-30 pounds in only six weeks on a superdrol/phera bridge, or something like that-which leads me to wonder, how much of that 20-30 pounds is actually muscle? And is it possible to gain that much pure muscle in only six weeks? I know from my own experience, my cycles used to net me about 20-30 pounds a pop. Tons of dirty eating, 400-600 grams of carbs, a ridiculous amount of fat, and of course, loads of protein. Hey, I was bulking, so it's ok, right? Anyhow, The most weight I've ever gained in six weeks was 31 pounds off of topical test, and phera. Sure it looked nice on the scale, but when I took off my shirt, it was a totally different story. I was 242@ 5'10" but I had a 40 inch waist, uber bloat, and the worst case of gyno ever! It looked like someone was trying to hide Bugles corn snacks under my nips! I ended up having a catastrophic breakdown. I quit the gym cold-turkey, and did no PCT on top of it. I lost 15 pounds in 30 days. I'm pretty sure that it was all muscle, because I lost it despite not starving myself. I was so depressed about my current situation, and the fact that I had lost all that muscle, that I got drunk every night at a neighborhood bar, and ate as much deep fried junk as I could get my hands on. Needless to say, I put on another 12 pounds of lard on an already soft, flabby physique. Once I finally snapped out of my rut, I got back in the gym, and cut down 30 pounds in three months. I figured it was time for another cycle, but this time I was going to try something a little different. I limited my carbs to about 150, with the bulk of them being consumed PWO. I also added Sesamin/ClA to the mix. Along with a little Superdrol, I added 10 pounds of muscle in four weeks. I'm sure it was all muscle, because I even leaned out a tad- so it might have been more. I continued for another 6-weeks on some non methylated compounds, but my gains stopped after the Superdrol. part of the reason why they stopped is another topic My point is, can a person really gain that much lean muscle in only a 6 week cycle? My thinking is 15 pounds of lean tissue might be the limit in only 6 weeks,(12 pounds muscle fiber, and an additional 3 pounds of inter-cellular support, ie. fluid, blood vessels...) Adding Igf-1, and insulin to the mix might change the game a bit, but I'm speaking strictly of roids, and mostly of the "currently legal, methylated crop," hence the 6 week max cycle. What do you guys think?
