    i think it best to
    come completely off
    then let your body recover to normal
    before running another cycle.

    6 weeks of winny does not sound "mild" to me.

    why would u wanna bridge? then don t come off at all, that s the same.

    your body needs a rest and as long as your not earning your living with it htere is no sense to stay on all the time...

    tha main goal of bridging is to keep you in anabolic phase between cycles and to help you maintain your previous gains. People who juice all year around or very long term bridge between two heavy cycles with milder juice like primo, equipoise , winny etc...
    I am not a big fan of too long term cycles but if I was up for a competition I would do it...

    There are two kinds of bridges. A bridge to recovery and a bridge between cycles. Personally, I think a bridge between cycles is foolish for anyone who is younger and doesn't need to be on all year. I would go ahead and give your body the rest. If you are going to stay on GH and I assume slin then you won't need an AAS bridge anyway.

    Here its very common with bridge. And almost everyone goes with 10/60 d-bol.

    That means 10 mg of d-boll ED for 60 days.

    I agree.

    No offense, but I think that "bridging" between cycles is just stupid. Your body's own natural hormone levels will not recover even one bit if it constantly sees extra hormones in you.

    I personally think bridging is the single most dumb and irresponsible thing someone can do. Now if you decide to stay on a long cycle (and you are hopefully in your late 30's or 40's), then you should just do a long low dose cycle.

    Don't be irresponsible with your body.

    My suggestion is don't be in a rush. Be patient with your body and it will reward you with a long and healthy life.

    My suggestion is to come off cycle and do your PCT. Then for your next cycle, plan your PCT very well and use HCG during your cycle. Then when it is time to come off again, you will recover much quicker than normal. I agree with the "time on = time off", but if your levels are back to normal, then you could start a cycle early.

    Just plan your PCT very well and don't be afraid to spend more money on PCT.

    Would you rather be safe and be able to do many cycles during your lifetime, or would you rather chance harming your natural test production permenantly and risk having to undergo HRT at a young age and be on it for the rest of your life. Steroids are illegal because there are health risks that go along with them. If you abuse them, you are increasing your risk of permenant damage to your body.

    But it is your choice.

    A few bad points here. HCG is not necessary for shorter cycles anything shorter than 16 weeks and it is not necessary. Time on = time off??? So you are saying if I am on for 52 weeks it is going to take me 26 weeks to recover?? I doubt it. And lastly what is so wrong with HRT?? I personally stay on for very long cycles and lower the doses after 12-16 weeks and go into a PCT type recovery while lowering doses, and or changing compounds.

    Like I said, it is everyones decision to make on their own. There is nothing wrong with HRT, as long as it is being monitored my a doctor. But cycles that long that are simply undertaken with only "online education", is kinda crazy if you ask me. Do what you wish, it's your body. Good luck with your cycles, and I hope you don't screw yourself up.

    there's no such thing as bridging or atleast bridging and PCT at the same time. What some users will do is lower the dosages enough to lower androgen levels to give the receptors a break then start over again. What I do.

    Do you suggest that then? For instance, i've heard that every 8 weeks you should change esters so the body doesn't get too much of the same thing and get used to it. so should I A. low dose some EQ B. take some primo or C. run some anavars till my next cycle week 24 and hit it hard with tren and prop? or D. just come off?

    If you want to stay on just run test at a lower dose for a little while before you go back on full blast.

    got this from a post on another forum i used to use... i think it awnsered my question and made my decision on what i'm gonna do now...maybe it will be as helpful for someone else as it was helpful for me.

    _____________________________________

    This explains the bridge in an easy-to-read manner with overall accurate information. Again, if using D-bol (androgen) it should be limited to 10mg and only be taken in the AM. If using Var (anabolic ) you can use up to 20mg and it does not need to be used in AM. If using Test, then it really doesnt matter because the recovery factor will not be there. Again, I define a "bridge" as a way to recover HPTA while maintaining gains...this is my good deed for the day....
    JC

    D-bol Bridge Explained by Fonz
    I've been reading some of the posts regarding this
    bridge and some of them are truly from left-field.
    First of, this is a BRIDGE. OK? a B-R-I-D-G-E.

    Your LH function and Test levels are supposed
    to RECOVER.

    Ok, now having said that.
    Here's the pharmo-kinetics behind Methandrostenelone,
    brand name Dianabol .

    10mg taken at once will increase your average testosterone level by 5 times and decrease your endogeneous cosrtisone
    by 50-70%.

    The reason why dianabol is a good choice for a bridge is that
    its VERY anti-catabolic. It also dopaminergic. Giving you the
    benefits of increased CNS strength modulation by
    its androgenic mode of action.
    Androgens, in case you don't know, increase neuro-muscular
    function, thus STRENGTH.

    OK. Now, lets delve into the metabolic chemistry behind
    dianabol's choice as a bridging agent.

    When are testosterone levels highest?

    Answer: In the AM, thats when.

    Your body releases a tesosterone spike in the morning.
    This is when tesosterone levels are highest.

    When are Insulin levels lowest?

    Answer: In the AM thats when.

    Low insulin levels=increased protein used as fuel.
    (Also fat, but protein is also being converted
    to glucose via glucogenesis)

    OK, here is where dball's short half-life works for us
    (Its 3.2-4.5 hrs btw)

    Lets take Subject X.

    He's in bridging mode.
    He has just woken up.
    The body is about to release tesosterone, thus
    creating a spike.
    His insulin levels are low.
    His LH and test levels are very low.



    He pops 10mgs of dianabol.

    Here is where things get interesting.

    The 10mgs of dianabol will cause a testosterone
    spike WHICH COINCIDES WITH the testosterone
    released ENDOGENEOUSLY in the AM by the testes.

    The body will be partially fooled.
    It will not entirely detect the increased levels of testosterone
    (above the normal test sipke), thus LH function WILL
    REMAIN only partially(Very little actually) suppressed.

    In other words, he is "piggy-backing" an extra dose of testosterone on top of the endogeneously reduced one,
    thus creating an "inflated" test spike.

    Henceforth, LH levels WILL BE ALLOWED TO SLOWLY
    RECOVER over time.
    Also, dballs anti-catabolic effect will help curb protein-loss
    in the morning from low insulogenic levels.

    HOWEVER, and here is where almost all of you go wrong.

    You CANNOT GO PAST 10mg of dianabol in the AM
    for this bridge to work!!!!

    Why? Because of the blood levels of dianabol you would generate.

    10mg in the AM will be broken down to 5mg in about 4 hrs
    (Probably less)

    5mg of dianabol, is not enough to cause another rise
    in testosterone levels after the precceeding one. Thus,
    LH function is allowed to up-regulate.

    Anything more(Say 20mgs), will cause a SEDCONDARY
    testosterone spike which WILL inhibit LH function further,
    thus not allowing LH function to recover.

    Oh yeah...100mgs? ROTLMFAO!! Fat chance.

    The difference between 20mgs and 10mgs means the difference
    between allowing LH to recover slowly and not allowing it to.

    So, here's the scenario summed up:

    Beginning: LOW LH and test.

    Adding the 10mgs dball.

    LH is allowed to SLOWLY RECOVER over time as
    testosterone levels are kept at a level which
    will not cause muscle-loss. Also, dball's anti-catabolic effects
    will reduce protein degradation.(Via cortisone
    reduction)

    This is what i call a double positive. You have managed to
    INCREASE anabolism(Test levels) and DECREASE
    catabolism(cortisone), during a bridge to boot!!

    The bridge should last 8 weeks, NO LESS.
    I also have to say, that it WILL NOT restore
    complete LH function. It'll get you 80-90%
    of the way there but the only way you're going
    to get your full LH function back is if you go OFF
    completely.
    Anavar WILL NOT restore LH completely either btw.
    (In case anybody is wondering.)
    The difference is that with anavar you can take it
    throughout the day and with dball it HAS TO BE
    once in the AM.

    Hope that clears the air.
