    Well if you aren't going to wait long enough to recover then don't come off at all. It is pointless to come off not restore HPTA function and then get back on.

    12 weeks on, about 10 weeks off (the ten weeks start after PCT though)

    Same for me here most of the time. But if I did a - let's say 16 week cycle - I won't wait that much time in between. This general rule of thumb is more likely when I do short cycles.

    I'm starting a T400/deca cycle for 11 weeks then taking clen for 6 weeks and jumping on fina or eq and winny. but, the reason for that is cuz' i'm starting my bulk cycle late due to AR and pct.

    I have a question...lets say I get bloodwork done before a 16 week cycle. I get my results and check em over. I do my 16 week cycle and get my bloodwork checked again 6 weeks AFTER I finished my cycle. I get my results check em over and everything is good, pretty much exaclty like they were the first time. Can I hop on another cycle w/ only a 6 week break inbetween a 16 weeker?

    Thanks

    i agree, time on=time off

    usually i like to do 1 cycle a year, and train naturally the rest of the year. I like to party, and i don't drink or party on cycle. So when i'm off, i usually party alot.

    6 weeks is not enough time for natural test levels to get working up to full speed again. If you took blood test 6 weeks after chances are you would not be the same as you were before the cycle anyways.

    If you do proper PTC you shouldn't lose much of your gains.
