    cycle during season

    I have a question about possibly doing a cycle during the season. I was wondering if i would lose the effects of the roids from the excessive cardio. Keep in mind that i will be weight training about 2 hours before football practice intensely, and then iw ould have to go to football practice. I was jsut wondering about the dangers of this practice, and also if it would be entirely beneficial. I want to get really strong so if any of you guys think it may be a good way to hinder gains then please speak up thanks. ALso im thinking about running low dose test, or eq alone, or possibly both.

    It sounds like you are in high school because you are not worried about NCAA drug testing. In that case, you should not be thinking about or even considering steroids . You're already pumping out test by the gallon.

    If you're in college, you'd be an idiot to risk failing a drug test.

    dont bother bro. if you cants get in good mutrition in meals after lifting when you need it they dont bother. besides, i dont think ne of the bros in here do or did and all out training routine in the middle of the season. you housl only be hitting the weight 3 days MAX durring the season. you wont get the full effect so def save it

    naw man save it. the season is a time to focus on football, not lifting, save your strength for the feild. and for health concerns, it raises your blood pressure and a number of other things. so def save it. .DONT YOU GO DIEING ON ME NOW

    there is no reason why you should be training any more than 3/week during the season listen to dalcowbag. If football is whats important to you then focus your strength and energy into the sport. I take it you are in high school as well since you are not worried about NCAA testing so if you have convinced yourself that you are gonna run a cycle save it for the offseason so you can lift 5/week and get the proper nutrition. good luck this season bro.

    What I mean is... You'd be an idiot to cycle during season. Most of the guys I played with in college just ran PROP cycles during the winter so they were clear for Spring ball and august camp.

    I ran a ph cycle, which hardly compares to tha real shznit, but i did it stricly for its anti-catabolic effects. Instead of going through that expected stage of muscle and strength loss, i actually got bigger and stronger and maintained everything.

    so since i can only work out 3 times a week max, and am gonna be doing excessive cardio do you think i should lift as if i was in a cutting faze. For example light weight high reps but intense. Would this have any benefit do getting more ripped. Cause i am bulking right now and once season starts it wil be ahrd to maintain my current bulk build but i would love to ge more ripped, do any of you see this as a good idea if i keep the diet good

    ill be coming off cycle and in PCT during camp... i thought about doin a small cycle of something towards the middle of the season to keep my strenth...

    i just got worried that i would loose strength during the season...im sure im not the only one thats had that worry b4....

    so i guess all of u are against cycleing during season...

    my strength has never and will never go up during a season. I'm happy if I only lose 20 or so pounds per lift, to me that is pretty good maintenance considering the punishment our bodies are going through. During football strength is important therefore you just want to maintain, because your body cannot take intense weight workouts. You may be ok for awhile but eventually you'll get injured. I do some supplemental work almost everyday after practice because we can only lift a couple times a week due to hour restrictions.

    How about a low dose of oxandrolone for maintenance and recovery?

    I am going to disagree with alot of people on this thread... take a look at his goals- he wants strength not size. This can be accomplished during the season. Perhaps he wont make jaw dropping gains but he'll at very least hold on to everything he has now. On top of that he'll be recovering faster than the competition, his agression will stay elevated, and his speed and sport specific explosiveness will improve hands down! Also look at what he is planning on taking- a small dosage test or EQ. This isnt gonna give him rediculous pumps or crush his cardio. Furthermore, there are many ways to beat NCAA testing, and I can speak from personal experience when I say that small dosage cycles during season are beneficial.

    season bro your gonna wear yourself out. During the
    season i lift 3 days a week and get pretty good results.
    And yeah there are alot of players on in college.
    There are ways to pass a steroid test man but they

    we do similar as you, but as with dcb, we only clean heavy once per week. We stay used to the movement w/ hang cleans and snatches as you've mentioned first thing upon entering the weight room no matter what we are training that day.
