    Talking Why is it so difficult to keep gains from "bulking" cycles?

    Even with proper ptc and diet gains from bulking cycles like deca /test/d-bol cycle seem to disapear over a period of 4 months or so after cycle is completed why is that???????
    what would be best cycle for keeping gains long after cycle is over?

    It is hard to keep up with all that big eating. It really has to become a way of life. People drop their calories even slighly and you slowly return to a weight that is natural to your metabolism and diet.

    A lot of people believe in the set weight (or point) theory..where your body will return to a certain weigth and its tough to stay at a weight higher than that.

    What if you have not yet met your genetic potential? Would you fall as fast back to baseline?

    IMO...The reason people loose most of their gains is simply what I like to call "post partum depression"....when coming off tha aas most people do not contain their same workout program or diet....it is physically harder and mentally harder without aas. This is where someone would have to ask themselves if they have it or don't have it. If not you are wasting a lot of money to potentially set yourself up for problems later on in life. You see in this game more than others...this is the one simple reason that only tha strong survive in bodybuilding...Peace

    I yet to date have lost anyhting i gained on a cycle. I may lose some weight and strength in the month after but all is gained back extremely easily once pct is complete. Good genetics ? deffinatly not i just bust my ass twice as hard when "off". I might not look as vascular as i did on an eq cycle or something but the size is still there.

    maybe because of water weight, if you do a proper PCT and throughout PCT keep lifting intensely and heavy, you body wont want to give up any muscle because it knows it needs to be strong to lift the weight.

    This statement is mentally positive....he knows what to expect when off cycle....and he knows he has good genetics....this is what it is all about.....Peace

    Muscles are like rubber bands. You stretch it once, it goes back to the same shape. You keep on stretching it and eventually it wears down and does not retract down to its original size. Just like braces. Your teeth are nice and straight but if you dont wear a retainer a couple hours a week after they are taken off, they go back to the form they were at.
    Plus the body likes to stay at a lean healthy state.
