    cycle length....


    I wanted to post the imoportant points i see in this thread, because I feel it is very benificial for those who have been misguided by all the bro science.
    If you want to learn a little about how steroids work, and have a better understanding of them, I suggest you read the whole convo.....

    the answer to your second question is because you can only grow up until the point where some limiting factor is going to put a halt to it. There could be many limiting factors. Obviously we cant take steroids and gain 8 pounds every two weeks indefinitely. And this is does not necessarily have to do with insensitivity to androgens. If that were going on then one would expect to lose weight after a while instead of maintaining their gains during the rest of the cycle

    Is this why blasting and cruising works? You're letting other factors recover while cruising and then eventually blasting to make another gain.

    the answer to your other question is no. apparently you failed to fully understand what i said

    I understood this.

    I believe this is where my reply was short sighted. What types of limiting factors are we talking about here? Metabolic, genetic? Or am I totally off the ball on this one?
    Quote Originally Posted by Patrick Arnold View Post

    myostatin inhibitors are interesting because they seem to disable the brakes on a whole slew of physiological processes involved in the limitation of muscle growth, some of which may be responsible for the plateau of growth seen after several weeks of AAS use
    Quote Originally Posted by Patrick Arnold View Post

    So adding anabolic steroids will simply reset your muscles to a different balance of anabolic and catabolic processes, leading to a new baseline of muscle mass.
    Quote Originally Posted by MuscleAddict83 View Post

I ask because there is always the debate as to whether a bodybuilder is so big because he's taking XYZ drugs. While that may be true to an extent and using the baseline context, is it fair to say that the bodybuilder is able to obtain a higher baseline because he is genetically able to?

If this is the best approach, why does it seem everyone advocates for longer cycles, like the standard 12+ weeks.

    by stopping you will lose a good part of your gains and then when you cycle again you pretty much will just end up at the same sticking point. You will have lost a few months where you could have gained a little more
    thats why the pros dont go off.
    with that said, its a very unhealthy thing to do

Granted both these guys have probably been lifting since high school, 6+ years lifting to obtain that look, and of course have great gentics, but do you think with the use of AAS a person could obtain that size and look of a natural bodybuilder in half the time?

    And if it is, then why do people do longer cycles? Just to look bigger for a longer period of time with no actual benefit (i.e. maintaining gains easier). Or because most people are deluded into thinking the way I thought for the longest time?
    You know, because you often see people 'bridging' compounds to 'solidify' gains from another compound. And it 'made' sense initially. But that isn't the case also, right?
    Cheers.

    people do longer cycles probably because they enjoy being on drugs. its as simple as that. they come up with all sorts of rationalization but i think it comes down to the fact that they enjoy training while on
    Quote Originally Posted by bryan101b View Post

    but there appears to be research stating gains from oral steroids, seem to cease (or significantly slow down) after 6-8 weeks of usage. and the time after that is just increasing the amount of potential side effects. so pa isn't just making stuff up.
    Quote Originally Posted by Patrick Arnold View Post
    at that point continuing the steroids will maintain gains for the most part. Unless the dose is increased substantially, which can result in renewed gains
    Quote Originally Posted by ozzie86 View Post

    Quote Originally Posted by Patrick Arnold View Post
    this has to be put into context. the steroids themselves will have "ceilinged off" on their impact (growthwise that is - they will still act strongly to preserve muscle gains).
    However you can continue your cycle and alter other variables (diet, training, other drugs) and continue to make progress.
    Quote Originally Posted by discs View Post

    well, there are those who just dont realize things about aas.

    they look at guys with the right genetics who are freakishly huge, who are on 12,15,20, 52 week cycles, and think, shiit, that is where it's at, anything else, is pointless.

    which in reality, is far from the truth. there is actual scientific data based facts surounding the use of supraphysiological dosages of androgens, but most people are just too lazy to look for it, and read it.

    it's easier to just do what everyone else is doing. i mean, if everyone is doing it, it has to be right?

    I've known about this all along that's why I'll only use short esters and keep to an 8 week cycle. I can't see myself staying on all year round though, it seems reckless.

    yea, it's sad people dont realize what supraphysiological dosages of hormones do to your insides.

    liver hepatotoxicity from alkylated compounds is just one of the things you need to worry about.

    unless you are planning on going pro, in which case, you probably need a therapist, otherwise, it's best to get in, get your gains, and get out, then get healthy.

    I enjoyed reading this, learned a few new things. It seems like informative points we all would already know but just need to hear it from someone else.

    Do the longer ester tests need to be stopped even sooner then, as they take a while to leave your system than prop?

    I know his genetics are good, and he got a really early start before any AAS use, but I've heard Arnold was usually only on for a couple months at a time. Correct me if you have sources stating otherwise, this is just hearsay.

    Good read. Sticky?

    Another hearsay: Arnold was juicing since he was like 15. Not sure if he's right person to model your AAS use on ;-)

    how on earth DID the old schools look so good for so long? sooooo much emphasis on perfect PCT nowdays, before all that what did they do? Arnie looked sick till late 90's for gods sake! And he got his maid preggas at 50 odd years old, so there goes that fertility theory a bit. Really wonder how they did it. Did they really stay pretty much on their whole life? for a couple of decades?!

    lol.

    And a bump.

    I did a 22 week cycle last year. Never again. After maybe 14 weeks of mostly test and tren. 10-11 weeks tren at 700mg/wk; 20 weeks of test e at 500mg/wk; 8 weeks of Proviron 100mg/day and 7 weeks of Anavar at 40mg/day at the end (weeks 14-20 or 22). My libido went to **** for about 3-4 months, 90%+ of my gains were made in the first 10 weeks and they stayed stable for the rest of the cycle which was basically test e 500mg/wk and 100mg/wk of prop (and the two orals). So I spent a **** load of money for no real reason. Had to SERM it up for 8 freaking weeks to get the boys back and that was after using hCG for the better part of 20 weeks on cycle. I felt terrible for a month or so post-cycle. The only thing that added anything was the var gave a little extra recomp to finish up with. I could have had 90% of the results in half the time for 1/2 the cost (+/-) and with far fewer sides. Maybe it was the tren, or my test dose was too high, but estrogen became completely unmanageable after week 14 or so, even on 3.75mg/day of HG Letrozole (or 50mg/day of Aromasin). 120mg/day of Ralox and .5mg/wk of Caber kept gyno away but I was a bloated, impotent SOB for more months than I care to recall. I used to prefer longer cycles, but now I think 8-12 weeks is the way to go unless 52 weeks or 104 weeks is your cup of tea. I do know some of those gents and they are indeed large, but I wonder about their organs (running Deca for 2 years straight for example...)

    6-12 weeks the best run time. Haa you can do a 52+ weeker or yearly run that;s if you want to go PRO status lol

    The same as any other person, they stay on, and don't use the same massive amounts of hormones used today.

    How do aids patients gain 10lbs of lean muscle tissue with 100mg of test e & 20mg of var for 8 weeks?

    From my experience, these negative effects are often exaggerated. Although you are a smart guy so was curious as to what negatives you were speaking of. Perhaps I overlooked something..

    Guess I should also specify it more so pertains to usage over time.

    I can't think of a steroid with which I have experience that is as anti-catabolic as anavar at just 20-40mg/day, trenbolone megadoses included. I've even tried tren and test and then test and var separately and my experience agrees with the GR binding affinity numbers (var having about 6x the affinity of trenbolone at the GR). Stopping the catabolic spiral of the AIDS wasting syndrome and correcting underweight study participant weight goes a long way in making those absurd gains on such low doses. For 90% of the normal population, they are not likely to see much from the above cycle save a few lbs.

    I do know the study to which you refer to, and I sense the question was rhetorical, so I have to ask myself...does a bear **** in the woods?

    What do you mean by GR? And GR binding affinity numbers? What you said sounds intriguing but I'm a little lost.
