    Progressive Cycles

    Why do people increase the number of substances they use with progressive cycles? Can't you maintain consistent results with 500 mg EW test 12-week cycles without adding any other substances ie. deca , etc.?

    Ideally, it would be great to keep my cycles basic and not keep adding other substances. Does that not work? Does the body get use to the same cycle?

    Thanks.

    the synergistic effect is better than 1 compound IMO. i can keep sides down this way too, instead of trying to take a gram of T

    it all depends bro, what you are trying to do. in most cases yes 500 mg is enough with proper progressive training and diet.

    i know people have asked this before but can't find anything in the forum. what's the long-term effect of such a cycle, let's say 2 cycles a year? besides the normal sides, is there anything irreversible? i heard hormone replacement therapy may be required but haven't seen any hard proof.

    one thing for me, is that i'd have to use accutane each time since the gear does make me break out. that may be a deterrent in itself unfortunately.

    im a noob but from what i gather some things work better for some people than others, and i would imagine after a while yeah the same thing will not yield the same results. also there are cases where one compound alone will net more sides than multiple things together. correct me if im wrong. and its wierd but ive always had bad acne since i was a kid, and when i went on test it almost all went away, and came back when i stopped....

    Im going to say this first, the % of people who actually know how to stack compounds and use them effectively vs. those who are juust cycling is less than 10%... if you are not competing, test cycles will do you just fine. If your diet and training are spot on, 400/wk is a good first cycle and you can do MANY cycles without ever having to go over 750/wk.

    So many people believe more is better cause they are the ones who want to put in less work and let the gear do it, and those cycles are less than effective.

    Again, what does this have to do with a question regarding the effectiveness progressive cycles?

    some people like myself experience more side effects from test than other compounds like EQ, deca , etc. Adding different compounds as i progress for me is a way of testing the waters so to speak for the one that works best for me in conjunction with a little over a TRT dose of test

    accutane is so hard on the liver, are you sure theres no other way? some of those soaps work very well
