Minimum 12 weeks, but I think I'll opt for longer cycles in the future.

at 12 weeks its just starting to shell out consistent gains for me so i like to go to at least 20 weeks.
enanthate doesnt "kick" for me until week 7 or 8.

Once my kids are gone and I can afford it ... I am never coming off.

I'ma run mine till it runs out or my lipids go int the sh!tter. How's that for being Mr. Ambiguous? Somewhere in the 16-18 week range maybe?
12-15-2006, 03:59 PM

I wonder what the insurance company is thinking? LOL!

Crap, you just reminded me that I'm due for bloodwork.

do many on here do test only cycles much? well with the exception of using an oral for the first 4 weeks. Ive been thinking this summer, if my lifting goes well for the rest of this year and I gain back my lost weight of trying a semi long (16-18) week test e cycle at somewhere between 500-750 (leaning towards 500 since its been a while for me). Also im curious on everyones use of HCG for the longer cycles and the opinions on it.
12-17-2006, 01:47 PM
i pretty much always only run test and an oral because its cheap and efficient...i dont run hcg bc i have no source so i'm thinking 14-15 weeks is probably the max length that i wanna do

about 20 weeks for test e. the biggest benefit of a long ester is being able to stay on longer. i ran prop for 12 weeks and that was overkill. sooo much scar tissue build up. i would pin and the needle would squeek--and it hurt!

i'm thinking using enanthate 14-16 weeks for all bulkersOriginally Posted by Irish Cannon
and then use propinate all cutters for 8-10 weeks

does anyone experience problems with hpta function during/after pct running it past 12-13 weeks?
01-02-2007, 04:59 PM
I put 12, but you can honestly keep running it as long as the gains are coming and you're monitoring your health
01-02-2007, 05:32 PM
yea im liking 14 weeks....but 16 if you run eq and/or deca
02-22-2007, 06:29 PM
im thinking about runing test enanthate for 12 weeks because of whats available rather than ideal time...in your guys opinion would it be worth throwing in some eq for weeks 2-12 or should i save that up until next cycle when i can get a hand on more
02-22-2007, 11:27 PM
02-22-2007, 11:38 PM
alright thanks tom i appreciate the input. I have no previous experience with eq but im looking to maintain some quality this time around rather than just the sheer mass resulting from a test cycle
02-22-2007, 11:46 PM
8 weeks max if you are not a pro. i noticed many people invest too much on steroids yet doesnt invest on pct. my opinion is that pct is equally important than being on a cycle too.
the way i do it is 1000mg of testosterone (prop and enanthate) for 2 weeks, 1000mg of test enathate for another 4 weeks, then probably 700mg of test propionate for the last 2 weeks. doing this way i can safely say that when i start my pct, my body is partly clear from exogeneous source of test and by layering the hcg, nolva, AI's after ending the cycle seems to be logical. but thats just my opinion.

I ran it for 16 weeks last cycle and after post cycle therapy (5 weeks Nolva after HCG) I was completely recovered and waking up with woodies again. I was planning for 12 weeks but the cycle was going so well I ran it 4 more weeks. With correct HCG usage to keep the 'boys' happy 16 weeks is fine in my opinion. The only crap thing is waiting longer for my next cycle

My first cycle next winter will consist of 14 weeks Test E @500mg/week. I am also thinking of running a dbol kickstart but that has yet to be decided upon. If I can find HCG I will run that from week 7-14.
03-02-2007, 07:41 AM
Running Dbol for kickstart is logical but can be very prone to gyno. Anti estro is a must when combining dbol and test.
HCG layered at the cycle?? and for 8 weeks?? i think that is too long. HCG must be utilized 2 weeks after the last test E injection with clomid/tamoxifen therapy.
Using HCG for too long will be hazardous to ur balls.
this is just my opinion but i think you should do a bit more research for the HCG part.

iv never heard of a test e cycle that short it sounds a lil out there.
why do people feel the need to try and re invent the wheel? a test cycle at 500-750mg for at least 12 weeks is kinda the "standard" for a reason, it works!
to the original question, i like to run test enan or cyp for as long as possible (18-22 weeks). i have really high natural test levels so it takes about 5-6 weeks for test to kick in for me, usually closer to the 6 week mark.
currently at week 7 of 500mg a week test cyp and 400 mg a week of deca.
strength has been going up sense week 4, but just now seeing good gains in the past 2 weeks
03-27-2008, 04:45 PM
I must say I haven't done a cycle of test yet but did see noticeably people not answering the shutdown questions etc.
03-28-2008, 08:30 PM
iv never had any trouble with shut down or getting natural test back up quickly
03-29-2008, 03:59 PM
test Cyp for 15 weeks is my personal favorite. throw some primo in there and jump it with Tbol and im a happy guy.
