While long-term, a ratio of being 1/3 of the weeks of the year is effective while conservative and suitable for most, it’s been well established by now that 2 on / 2 off also works fine when PCT is used in the off weeks, and even a single off week is acceptable from time to time.
I’m not sure I’ve seen you say it personally, but word is you recommend a 4 week or so break after a few consecutive 2 on/2 off cycles? Also, if that is true, is it correct to assume that the more “harsh” s cycle is (such as one including a higher dose of Tren or something) the more necessary it would be to take that extended break?[/quote]
No, I’ve never said it that way. I generally explain it in terms of weeks on per year, and the following subjective and unprovable appraisal that being on 1/3 of the time is conservative but can be quite effective; being on half the time is pushing it a little more but is still exercising some caution and isn’t extreme; and being on 2/3 or more is being quite aggressive and doesn’t necessarily give much more results by the end of the year.
And with regard to alkylateds, it’s probably best to not be on them more than half the time; it is more cautious to limit use to 6 weeks at a time; in general it is best to average at least as much time off of them as on; but it’s acceptable to have two stretches such as 6 weeks with a shorter time between them such as 2 weeks, or some modest number of 2 on / 1 off cycles before having a longer break off of the alkylateds.
[quote]I also have a couple questions regarding PCT: Is there a standard PCT protocol that you recommend (such as Nolva 40/20 or something) for the 2 off weeks? If taking a 4 week break, is running a SERM the entire 4 weeks recommended, as opposed to only the first 2 or 3 weeks? I’m just wondering how I could begin devising effective PCT strategies for the 2-weekers.
Really same PCT as anything else. The above is fine. I think running the 4 weeks is better but 2 weeks suffices.
