Anabolic steroids differ in their characteristics, which means there are steroids that are only suitable for specific uses. For instance, Trenbolone is not recommended for bulking but it is an outstanding fat burner. This makes it perfect for a lean mass cycle or a cutting cycle. Always take the side effects of a particular compound into consideration whenever you plan a stack. Do not combine anabolic steroids that show similar side effects. For example, never combine Anapolon and Dianabol because they are already quite toxic and if you combine them, the toxicity will increase exponentially and cause serious damage to your body.
With timing in mind and creating a new set normal, most men will find 8 weeks to be the minimum with 12 weeks being far more efficient; of course, longer will yield better results. At the same time, longer will also increase the risk for potential side-effects, and once again we’re at a scale we must measure. For those who are looking for solid gains while remaining as safe as possible, normally 12-16 weeks of actual supplementation followed by an equal amount of time off-cycle is the best bet; this is a safe and effective way to plan all your steroid cycles. Of course, for many men, based on their goals such a plan will not work; not if they are going to progress in the manner they desire. For the hardcore elite, the truly advanced, you will find they are on-cycle far more than they are off; after all, this is the only way their body’s can support the massive strength and size they have obtained. It’s not uncommon to see such men blast with 16-20 week cycles and only discontinuing use for 4-8 weeks; in some cases, they won’t fully discontinue use at all. In some cases, in hardcore circles it is often found they will supplement heavily for 16-20 weeks and drop to a low dose of testosterone for 4-8 weeks before blasting for another 16-20 weeks. At some point and time they will probably come off of everything, and they should, but either way while this can be very effective it comes with a lot of risk.
