What happens when you stop juicing ?
What happens if you do 1 cycle and after that cycle you do a good pct and train 5 times a week with good diet?
Do you lose all your gains after your cycle ? or do you keep some of the gains ?

If youre talking about a test only cycle with proper pct, you should be able to keep a good amount of your gains. But pct is very important, along with high protein/calorie intake and consistent training.

Ill bump this, I am 20 years old, been working out on and off since ive been about 17, but the last year with a new job havnt worked out much, but the last 2months things have died down so im back in the gym 6- times a week. Most ive ever taken in my life is creatine an t-Bomb. in a few months after i get most of my strength back n get on a good diet i was thining of doing a cycle, but dont wanna become an avid juice user. If i only plan on doing one cycle, is it a complete waste and dont even bother, also(maybe a dumb quetion) but will i become very "lose" and "saggy" after i stop my first cycle

The key is maintaining the diet and workouts after you stop. Many get a psycological edge while on and then intensity when off goes down hill in diet, workouts, rest, etc.
I am guilty of this to a certain degree. It really depends on how dedicated you are and how many things are going on in your life.

A lot of what people interpret as a loss in gain is the reduction of liquid volume (water and blood) in the system when the cycle is over. Also you need to keep training hard and heavy or your muscles will atrophy. The BUT in that is you need to reduce the time of your training not the intensity. You recover much better while on cycle so you can train with high intensity for a longer period of time. When you go off cycle stick to about an hour work out each training day. avoid cardio and keep your diet strict and high in protein. Done properly you will see a decrease in weight but not a very noticeable decrease in overall size.

you should keep your gains, and continue making them
if you dont continue without AAS, your diet and training work

thanx alot guys, my greatest fears are 1.once off it i will have a loss in motivation and drive then ihad before on my cycle and look even worse then i did before 2. hahah like u said loving n n just getting bigger n bigger n bigger 3. I trust the info all u guys r giving me, but ive seen alof of people come of cycles n in 2 months they look liek absolute ****, For right now im training 100 percent natural and hopefully i can obtain the look im looking for. im 6'1 and weigh 190 lbs , not ripped but muscular, like when i have a shirt on i look like i workot(just using it as an example) so i figure if i can naturally get up to 205-210 and be cut, ill be happy n no need for juice, but man doing one cycle and being at my goal sounds alot easier then training hard for 4 months n having a STRICT ass diet
03-31-2005, 04:32 PM #11
if you can get up to say 300lbs on juice, then you should be able to maintain 250lbs fairly easily off the juice, if you eat well and stay in the gym...
I am buying enough powder this year and then vaccumn sealing it and storing it so i can pretty much stay on until I die...
I actually only plan to do 2 cycles a year starting next year... but you never know...
03-31-2005, 04:34 PM #12
my intentions are def not to go into comp. or try this out as a career/way to make money. to be honest just want to look good,and be healthy, right now i feel like i need to train naturally for a few months n see if i can stick with it, if i cant do it now then i def cant do it after a cycle

Just bust your ass and eat right after your cycle, you have to fight the urge to quit and work out even HARDER than you did ON cycle, like the other bros said, eat right and train hard, take creatine along with a good pct you can keep enough of your gains. It changes your frame forever though you always look better.
03-31-2005, 04:48 PM #15

Terrible routine bro, your hitting 3 large muscle groups in 3 consecutive days. My advice for a lean mass run would be to do a better spit, and weight train 3-4 days/week max, then eod cardio for at least 40 min. The cardio will keep you burning extra cals, while eod training will help the muscles recover even quicker. If it were me, I'd throw back in with chest, tues just cardio, wed legs, thurs shoulders tris like you got, Fri would be off, Sat, biceps abs cardio, sunday maybe cardio or off

Go to the workout forum and do some research. You can put together a better program than what you are doing now. Also, posting like your doing in a threat someone else started is . You need to start your own with whatever questions you have after doing research on this site.
03-31-2005, 05:41 PM #21

I bump this!
I am a 20 year old natural athlete. I have been working out for a year and half constantly, I have made my gainzzz, and work hard. I would like to know; I want to get to 195 pounds at 8-10% bdf, and I am 181 5'07" at 12-13% bdf
I want to be able to compete in football (american) therefore I need to increase my bench 225 x 10 reps or more, and overall strength, and speed. I train 4-5 times a week, also I train for speed, and agility separately. my question is how many cycle do I need, and will I keep my strength and gain, once stopped juicing with good pct, and diet.
All that with 8 months of powerlifting.
My goal is to become strong, fast, and agile.

It all boils down to how bad you want it .... I weighed 300lbs of fat when I started I wanted so bad .... And I can tell you honestly I hate working out and I def hate running but I want it so bad I can't stop ... Of I was naturally skinny I prolly wouldn't workout at all honestly ... But that's not in the books for me ... I'm naturally overweight ... I can stop working out today and gain 20lbs fat in 2 months ... And since I'm not natural slender that only gives me the options of being a fatbutt or getting the physique I want .... Solo you just push and diet right and keep on pushing ... Don't quit because it hasn't happened for you yet ... If you don't have the physique you want then you are doing everything you can do to get it ... Just keep up the good work and keep on
