    Comes down to cost vs benifit..after 12-14 weeks the benifits decrees and the sides can increase

    I'd be very careful doing this. You'd need a very aggressive PCT that will hopefully work. But really what is your goal here? Maybe 20 weeks is not needed.

    Personally that is a long duration for somebody to be shutdown IMO. Remember the longer you are shutdown, the longer and more aggressive you will need to be in recovering!

    20wks is cruising, not cycling.

    14wks is still too long, go 12wks max.

    Ive ran loads of long cycles but never liked them especially when you put them against shorter ones (4-8 wks), I can run a shorter cycle with alot less sides and far better gains.

    Yes 20 weeks is to much unless your prepping for a contest

    even if your cycle is only 14 weeks, what do you have planned for post cycle therapy ?

    Primo/Test cycle would also apply here. I wouldn't recommend it for anyone that is not both experienced and a TRT patient. At the end of the cycle... it's all about recovery, and these super extended cycles certainly dont make it easy.

    It all depends on your goals. If you're wanting to be a serious competitor you're going to be on cycle for long periods of time...far more so than not. Yes, there's a tradeoff when it comes to risk but that's decision only you can make.

    Also, another thought, is 20wks really going to make a huge difference compared to a standard 14-16wk test cycle,,,and I'm referring to both benefits and recovery. No, probably won't make a huge difference in either case.
