    Less Gear For More Time -- Or -- More Gear for Less Time?

    What is better -- less gear for more time, or more gear for less time?

    I believe quality gains take hard work and correct dieting no matter what the gear, so my question is more geared towards Health & longevity wise

    I think it depends on the levels... like 750mg for 8 weeks or 500mg for 12 weeks would not be comprable to 1500mg for 4 weeks.

    Some bros like lower dosage cycles for longer periods of time and their body reacts very well to this kind of cycle. Other bros like higher dose cycle because they realize that is what works for them. It's all is in trial and error and you have to experiment and see what works best for YOUR body.

    My thoughts are this. It takes a long long time to build up a lb or two of muscle so why not run a long cycle versus a short one? You get more workouts in during a lengthy cycle versus a short one so my logic just says to me that there is more room for growth. Again its just a hypothesis but it seems to make the most sense to me.

    not only that but longer cycles give your body a chance to adjust to the new weight.... my thinking is that if i run a longer cycle... and give my body enough time to get used to the weight.... i'll retain more of it... (obviously not the water weight)

    i agree....the short cycles pump ur body full of water since it is scientifically impossible to gain 15 pounds of muscle in 4 weeks....it will all be water....now if u gain 15 pounds over a 12-15 week cycle you have a better chance of keepin alot of it...now you may still get bloat but it wont be nearly as dramatic as your body should have gotten used to it...and the weight addition should be alil cleaner!

    Thx.

    bdtr -- 500mg of sust for 16 weeks, or 1100mg Stack of Test/Equipose for 10 weeks.

    Goal isn't hulk, goal is a healthy, hard-packed look. Am a personal trainer and don't want to look roided out....

    I like long cycles with high doses. Oh, that wasnt an option?

    Being a personal trainer, i'm sure you are already in pretty good shape and your diet and training is in check, so a simple 12 week cycle of Test E would probably allow you to reach your goals. I would stack the test with 50mgs ED of proviron and maybe 50mgs of Var for a few weeks to get that hard look you are looking for.

    i think out of those two go with the 16 wks. 10 wks of eq is really not long enough and i prefer to run test longer than 10 wks. but if you threw the eq in with the sus for the 16 wks. that would be better. How many cycles have you done? That is very important also.

    BodyMech, this will be my 4th cycle -- first in a year however.

    I did EQ for 8 Weeks a while ago, was expensive to me then, else I would have ran it longer. I liked the 'hard-packed' results I got from it, but 1100mg of gear sounds like quite a bit after a year....

    what do you mean by 1100mg? How much of each are you planning on running?
