    How long to wait to start another cycle?


    Hey everyone I've been reading this forum for a while and I finally got a username because I need help with something. I just came off a cycle of dbol/deca/test e and I'm planning on taking another cycle which consists of test e and EQ. Today was my last day of my PCT and I'm wondering how long I should wait until I start the test e/EQ cycle. Here is how my previous cycle looked:

    Week 1-4 Dbol 40mg/day
    Week 1-10 Deca 400mg/week
    Week 1-12 Test E 500mg/week
    Week 4-14 HCG 500 IU/week
    Week 14-16 Clomid 150mg/day
    Week 16-17 Clomid 50mg/day
    Week 14-16 Nolva 40mg/day
    Week 16-17 - Nolva 20mg/day

    I will personally say longer 10-12 weeks would be a bit more fair in my eyes

    IMO 3-4 months would be best so that you can get HPTA going on its own for a while then give your receptors a break so that you respond just as good next cycle!

    That is a great rule of thumb.

    But people come up with thier own ideas from experience.

    I like to take as much time off between cycles as possible. After the above cycle, I would wait atleast 2.5 months before starting another.




    PP, I don't believe in that whole giving your receptors a break thing. Letting your HPTA a break i do believe in full-heartedly though.

    I agree for the use of phs/orals. For injectable cycles, I prefer a longer time off so that the dosages stay low, BUT some people are impatient, and a normalization period works out fine.

    my rule of thumb is 6WEEKS!!!!
    LOL. no it would depend on a lot of things. but my body seems to be ready to go at 6 weeks off. i have gone 8 months between cycles and didnt notice it working better than if i had waited 6 weeks. jmo. like i said, most people dont listen to me.

    As I'm reading and asking questions here, I'm learning that the longer you stay off, the more likely you'll be able to obtain similar gains from a similar dose.. In other words, if you don't wait long enough, your receptors will need MORE than what you used the last time. However, if you do wait long enough, the same amount you used the last time should be enough.

    I'd prefer to wait awhile so that I can use less. I don't want to be needing 1000mg each of test and deca to become a pin cushion.

    What's the ultimate "bridge"? Maybe that would be good enough for most people who are anxious to get back "on"...

    I wonder.. Do androgen receptors react differently to orals vs injectibles? If that's the case, than that would be one great way to switch on and off...

    What about between Different compounds? I know most everything is closely related to testosterone, but is there any kind of difference in receptor reactions between compounds?

    It would be cool if there was a difference between Testosterone Cypionate and Testosterone Enanthate.. Especially since I can get both. I'd switch off and on if that were the case. However, I have a feeling it's unlikely to make a difference...

    I was thinking more along the lines of EQ to Tren to Test Prop, etc...

    But the different tests would be cool too.
