    Question Anyone try 6 week cycles?

    I know quite a few BB'ers who swear by fast acting AS for 6 week cycles. That's what they do all year long...and I definitely see the results. I'm going to try a few 6 week cycles once I'm done my current cycle. I'm planning on using test prop.

    Anyone have any experience on a short cycle?

    I've heard about them, I believe they're called "shic" cycles.

    I went on tren acetate for 6 weeks..... I got rock hard off it and had strength gains..... not really any size tho. I ended up gaining about 15lbs over the months after i took it by just eating right.

    maybe runt he prop and tren for 8 weeks.....

    Perhaps the short cycles repress the hpta less, and you can run them closer together? More time on= more gains. Im really just speculating though...

    Go for it bro, you just gonna use the prop? You could throw in nand phprop, bold ace, tren ace, and pretty much every oral I can think of...

    my 1st cycle was for 6 weeks too,
    back then i didnt no **** about it so my brother in law suposely knew whats up, he told me to inject deca 50ml 6 wks alone with anadriol 50ml 4pills ed thats it, no BS i gained 15lbs of fat which was good for me due to my weight
    i had bfor 125lbs, i beleive my intake of high cals trigger such gains,
    i still beleive short cycles r better for me with a proper planning..

    There is no doubt that even 2 hours of increased androgens will lead to extra anabolism. When planning cycle lengths you want to ride the line between being able to make a quick recovery while obtaining worthwhile results.

    Can you make gains in a 6 week cycle? Of course you can... but deffinitly either use a light ester or frontload the heavier ones... so you get blood androgen volume elevated as soon as possible.

    The pros of cycles lasting only 6-8 weeks is a much easier transition back to natural with an easier recovery. Plus, I have noticed more of the androgenic effects kicking in over the long-term (like body hair growth). The cons obviously will exist in the fact that you will spend less time with the abnormal anabolism going on.

    Cycles that run 10, 12 or more weeks will obviously yield good gains - but the cost spent on recovery drugs can become as much (or more) than the cycle itself. Running long cycles, becomes a greater investment - from recovery drugs to getting blood work done. But there comes a point while on, gains start to level off anyway... perhaps simply due to a lack of increased protein intake and overall calories - one guess I have is also an eventual raise in SHBG... which could also be a concern for PCT...

    My personal opinion is the best AAS cycles with a reasonable PCT requirement lie around 10 weeks... but the compounds/esters used also play a big role.

    Im on one now. My plan was only 6 wks but have changed to 8 wks,since family stuff has changed a bit. Im running test prop/tren kicked it with d-bol. Some may say its too short but we all have different goals. Im not trying to gain 25lbs. In 2 months I will be ready for my winter bulker cycle which I will run for 12 wks,my longest yet

    Great post bro! I agree with everything you said.

    I think I still want to run a few 6 week cycles. Now the dilemma becomes do I raise my normal doses for 6 the weeks...or stay at about 100mg ED for prop. I'm thinking of staying at 100mg ED while my friend thinks I should do 150mg ED. Higher dose...shorter time frame.

    Do you think a normal Pheedno style PCT would still be applicable to a 6 week cycle?

    I don't even start getting good gains till the 5th week..between weeks 5 and 12 I explode. But using a fast acting juice only cycle might change that too. Let us know how you do with it.

    i would think for a first time user, the 6 week cycle would be a great idea...if u can make reasonable gains, why not? ..also i would guess that the next cycle wouldnt require as much gear

    I am thinking of running all esterless gear for 6 weeks. It took 2 weeks for the Prop to kick in for me which means that you would only have about 4.5 weeks of full hormone levels in your blood if you went with prop for 6 weeks. I think ideally suspension (NE) gear would be best if you dont mind the injects (which really are no different than using other ED compounds)

    Bases should be shot twice ED, not ED. It's like with prop. You can get away with EOD, but for best results you need to shoot ED.

    Yes I know this, but what I mean was that you are not injecting all that many more times over the course of a 6 week cycle comparative to a 10week or 12 week cycle. I cant speak from experience but I would think 6 week NE cycles would be optimal.

    1 injection per day is enough for me! I'll see how I like the 6 prop cycles...I may try a suspension cycle.

    You could jumpstart it with the esterless for 2-3 weeks.

    Although this may be true it's also going to be the most optimal for sides like gyno.

    Ive been off for a year now, and i am kinda thinkin like you MBH. I am very curious about running a short cycle. My last one went 20+ wks, it was a great cycle, but recovery was a challenge.
    I am contemplating something like this;
    wk 1-6 100mg test prop, 100mg bold ace/prop, and 50mg var ED
    pct still with hcg , clom, and nolv

    I like the bold ace idea, I've never known of anyone acctually using it though.

    Would you do the 30 day Pheedno PCT? It seems like a lot for a 6 weeker.

    Yes, i probably would. though, my theories differ slightly from pheedno's pct.

    Sounds good on paper. We just need more guys willing to give it a run in order to further determine its benefits and drawbacks. Keep in mind that at one point tapering was actually considered the standard way to run a cycle. Of course now, the theory is way out-of-date.

    However, for short acting esters six weeks may be long enough to make quality gains, but certainly not comparable to the transformation and body composition shift a 12 week cycle can accomplish. I'm sure diet and training also plays a major role in the transformation process, where less than 6 weeks is probably not enough time to reap the benefits of a strict diet and intense training program. But only way to know for sure of course is through experimentation. Thats where MBH steps into the picture I guess hehe.

    Okay, here would be a more detailed explaination of my timing:
    1-6 test prop 100mg ED
    1-6 bold ace 75-100mg ED
    1-6 var 50mg ED
    wk 4 begin 500ius of hcg 2x/wk, stop at clomid
    4-5days after last shots begin 100mg clomid, 40mg nolv for 2wks,
    then another 2wks 50mg clomid and 20mg nolv

    For some reason, i want to give it a shot going w/o anti-es throughout the short cycle. I would attempt to exclude the anti-es due to not really being concerned about my lipid profile and edema(i feel i can adequately control these through my diet). I like pheedno's pct, but really still dont like the idea of using arimidex that long.-But this is just one mans opinion. Before i begin anything, i will however look into it further.

    We should start the cycles together and do comparisons.

    i'm curious why you would say this? how would it be much different from what a prop cycle would be? if you keep a regular schedule with regular levels than it should be no different or am I missing something??

    I meant that we should share our results with our own experiences on other cycles and PCT's.

    "The body works with a Feedbacksystem, the higher the concentration the more the body will try to normalize the old situation (Homeostasis), that's why in theory Test Base is the worst for Gyno since the enormous amount of accumelating Test in the blood in a short period, will be compensated by an enormous amount of Estrogenproduction (which when turned to Estradiol will cause a hell of a lot of trouble)."
