    Question Why does anyone cycle 8-10 weeks instead of 12?

    What is the reason for this?
    Less chance for side effects?
    Any advantages of only doing 8 or 10 weeks?

    Why doesn't everyone just do 12 weeks to get more out of the cycle?

    (Let's say it's a test only cycle if that matters).

    when I ran my very first cycles I ran 10-12 week cycles. Now most of them run 20 weeks plus. I might take a 6-8 week break but I usually bridge it with something and then I will run a shorter cycle of 10 weeks.

    You can if you want to with test suspension or even prop.... fast acting is doable.

    Remember most people run test e, deca and EQ all of which really take a good 4-6 weeks to work well. So by the time you see good gains your already stopping your cylce.

    So when people only do 8-10 weeks of test e or deca it's because they don't know better?

    For the most part, yes.

    Most people dont utilize HCG and anything longer then 10 weeks is harder to recover anything over 12 weeks and HCG is A MUST!

    wolfyEVH: What do you mean enough? It must be better to do another two weeks to get more out of it? First you spend time waiting for the gear to kick in, secondly you put a lot of effort to the PCT and recovery, why shorten down the best part? If 10 weeks is enought, would it not be better to do a lower dose at 12 weeks?

    Bryan2: Hmm.. So it may be easier to keep the good gains if only doing 10 instead of 12?

    I never see people do cycles for 9 or 11 weeks, why is that?

    Well that stement goes more for anything over 12 weeks 10 weekers are all ive ever done from my experience i get around 1-3 pounds of LBM a week on cycle so i guess two more weeks could yield as much as 6 more pounds LBM if done perfect which is quite a bit but Im only 20 and fear for my hpta so i stick to 10 weekers.
