    8 week or 12 week cycle

    Ok, so I have been reading about these short 8 week cycles and how they are more beneficial and getting better gains than longer cycles. Originally I was considering a 12 week on just test Cyp, with PCT. My question is which is better in your opinions, long or short. Driving me barney between the two!

    Doesn't matter. Your diet determines gains. It's mostly a matter of how you feel about frequency of injections. If you don't mind injecting often, use short esters and get results in about 8 weeks. If you're not a fan of injections, use long esters and get similar results in 12 weeks.

    If you're running a long ester then I suggest running it for at least 12 weeks. Some people don't experience any mass gains until around week 7.

    For long ester 12weeks is plenty(only primo 18+ IMO)

    Short no longer than 8 IMO.

    I think the longer you are on the harder recovery is, but thats just my 2 cents.

    I don't really start.setting any differences with long esters until week 7 or 8 so I run 14-16 weeks. You find your sweet spot by watching carefully over time. That's just me though, everyone is going to react differently. I don't aromatize much and don't get heavy sides other than arm acne and have no problem with recovery. I don't recommend beginners just start out at 16 weeks. Plan for at least 12 and make sure you run hcg with it. It will make recovery a lot easier.

    Technically, this will be my first cycle; I don't consider Androgel a cycle. I had an opportunity to stack Dbol or winn with it. Some say just do test, and other say stack. Opinions?

    I've only done a 10~ and an 8 weeker. I stopped seeing as quality of gains after about week 7 so I prefer shorter. Just my opinion though
