    Between cycles

    Is it a must to wait for a month or so to do next cycle or can I just go straight into a cutting cycle from a bulking cycle. About to finish my bulking cycle next month and really just wanna go straight to my cutting. I know a lot of guys that have been going for a couple of years on tren . Is it ok to go straight into tren after my decca test dbol ?

    You're on a pretty serious cycle right now bro. It would def serve you well to recover from this cycle before jumping on the next one, especially because you're running 19nors which are very suppressive of your natty test production.

    The only time it's appropriate to rotate compounds in that way is if you're on trt cause then recovering is no longer a concern. You are old enough to consider trt but keep in mind it's not a "get out of jail free" card lol we still have to keep an eye on bloods and make sure our cholesterol, rbc, crit, triglyc, estrogen, prolactin are all in check.

    I’m 38 now and haven’t done blood work yet to check my test levels. But just feeling the difference I felt from the first time I did just low doses of test and when I’ve been off cycles so far feel like I’m definitely a trt candidate. But I have learned since I started last year that there is only one way to find out. So I guess my next question is how long after I finish this run and do my pct do I wait to go get tested?

    Morning Gentlemen,
    Real quick... I got some old Test E250, D-bol, Deca ...
    I’ve looked up shelf life and it appears to be ok to use. I’m 36 and looking to stack these. Would either of you have a certain schedule or “battle plan” for it?
    Seeing as that “Bigshifty” just got done with this same stack. Also, I don’t have my PCT so I haven’t pulled the trigger yet.... is this a reliable site to purchase it?
    Thanks,

    This isn't a site for purchasing your gear.

    Oh ok...
    great!
    Tijuana here I come ��... lol
    Are there any reliable sites to purchase “gear”? Or is it a “Dark web” case by case thing?
    (I know these are stupid basic questions but it’s genuine)
    Thanks,

    This isn't a source board so that type of question is just asking to get scammed.

    I appreciate that...
    any info on TRT treatments?
    I’ve asked the V.A. more than once but just get the blank stare... I’ve noticed a significant dip in my sex drive, energy, and the usual sluggish crap that comes with the late 30’s faze.

    So you haven’t been ‘off’ for a year or so?

    I took a month off every few months. Close to two months one time.

    Well to answer your question correctly I need to know if you're getting the test done to get an accurate baseline reading or to get on trt? I ask because if you want an accurate baseline reading then you shouldn't do the test until your pct is complete and you feel recovered from the cycle(s).. But if you're trying to get on trt then you'll want to get the test done about 3 weeks after your last shot or right before you start pct as your levels are sure to be very low at that time.

    I'm personally not a fan of "cycling" for exactly this reason. Any serious lifter who's trying to keep reaching new levels isn't going to take 3 months off in between every cycle. It's just not optimal for continuous gains and at even the lowest levels of competition guys stay on year round so unless you have unbelievable genetics then there's no way to hang with the guys staying on when you're taking half the year off from cycling.

    For the purpose of body building, the optimal way to use gear is to blast and cruise. IMO one's goals should justify making the decision to do this as you'll likely need shots for the rest of your life after choosing this route. I say this to deter young guys who don't need trt to go this route, but IMO if you're a candidate for trt anyway (as in your case) then might as well save yourself a lot of headache messing with pct drugs and fluctuating hormones which can cause complications and will cause you to lose hard earned gains. That yo-yo'ing is not conducive to body building.

    If someone is just trying to look good at a music festival with their shirt off lol I wouldn't condone the decision to get on trt as IMO that's not a good enough reason to go down this road.

    If you want to stay off trt and maintain a healthy hpta, then your time off should equal your time on, and after every cycle you should run pct diligently and get blood work to determine whether or not you've recovered.

    You answered my question exactly. Thank you alpha mindz. You have answered all of my posts. I always wondered about the guys that say they never cycle off. I’ve been lifting for over six years now and just finally am really starting to get big gains and don’t want to stop. Everyone on here is a great help. Thank you everyone this site it awesome for that I encourage people to ask the questions even if you think it’s stupid it took me a while to do it because I didn’t want to look dumb but that’s stupid in itself. I’ve learned so much off this site alone. Hopefully I can get to the point where I’m helping the new guys too.

    Bigshifty, you had 2 threads going on the same topic, so they were merged into one thread.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Hell yeah man it's my pleasure glad I could help. I love your attitude bro that's what it's all about! We learn and grow and help the guys going through the shit that we were not too long ago. That's what makes this community work so well, and I agree it's important to ask questions even if they seem "dumb" lol.
