Why is it worse for gains : After you jack up your hormones you start gaining muscle, and if everything is done right you get some nice gains. Ok, so now when you have lots of new gains, that are not sustainable without steroids, you cut off these steroids. Even if you do the correct PCT, its not like you natural test is back at its highest levels any time soon. So not only did you cut steroid doses, which starts the process of losing muscle, you also fall WAAAAAY below where you would be naturally at first. I will ilustrate this with imaginary numbers… So your natural test is 10. You start steroids and you are at 20 and thats where the gains are made. Then you cut steroids, you fall to 0. And it takes while till you get back to 5. If you are lucky, eventually you are back to 10, but the muscle you gained on 20 was dropping off every day since you stopped the cycle.
So not only did you lost muscle BECAUSE you went from steroids to natural. You lost em at twice the speed because it will be a while for you to even be at the natural level you started.
Why is this moronic in my opinion? You started steroids because you wanted more than what you have natural. But after when you did what you wanted, you… go back to natural? And not only you go back there, you go back WAAAAY below where you liked yourself in the first place, swallow pills and follow protocol to get back to where you were in the beginning.
And unless you plan on cycling forever, you will always lose ALL your gains eventually even if you would rebound like a genetic mutant at the day 1 after the cycle.
You cant cycle forever(because of health of which i will speak next) so cycling is something you do KNOWING that sooner or later you will be back where you were IF LUCKY because many people fuck themselves up good(also will speak of this next) and actually never rebound, and then continue their lives with shit levels of test and are much worse than they were at the start.
So you basically spend money and health on something that will give you potential gains for a few months, then you fall back, and spend the next half cycle to get back up again, BUT ANYWAYS you know, that one day you wont rebound at all or will just stop, and there will be nothing to show for it anyways.
Why is it worse for health? As i mentioned before cycling leads to you being a lot on hormone levels way above your normal and then way below. When it comes to health it is know that stable levels are better than zig-zagy ones. You get to superhuman levels, then you fall down to miserable trash with no test at all, get all depressed, emotional. Your body is in constant stress because its always either too much or not enough.
If we speak of general health - our body can adapt to lots of stuff but it needs time. When people jerk off their hormones all the time they always get all the sides. If you are on em for longer, you dont get sides.
I was on 1gram of test and 1 gram of tren for at least 2-3 years straight, and i remember also taking stanazolol or dbol for at least a year when i was like 22 maybe. Not a good thing to do, but im saying this because - i never got any sides. No acne, no gyno, no agression, no emotions etc.
Now when i did a long cruise, i cant take tren over 100mgs a wk because i get depressed in day 5. I feel like crying for everything and everything seems like the end of the world. So if i were to cycle, i would get this on and off all the time.
It also takes lots of time for your blood, cholesterol etc to get to normal. Sexual function gets wrecked and it also needs time. But as soon as you get back to somewhat normal(IF you do) you start a new cycle LOL. And you fuck yourself again to go through all this again.
Look at it this way. Bulking and cutting(sounds a lot like blasting and cruising, huh). What if when you bulked you were to eat 8000kcal a day, always shitting yourself and puking all the time, being poisoned by the amounts of food, constant lethargy, vomiting, acne, rapid weight gain. And then you cut. You just dont eat. For months. At all… You dont eat at all and do 5 hours of cardio. You barelly stand upright, your brain shuts down any time it gets a chance, you lose muscle faster than you lose fat, you feel like a miserable piece of garbage again… So when you suffer through this you start it AGAIN.
Cycling is the same only much worse for your body because food doesnt do as much damage as jerking hormones up and down its just that as long as you are at a young age you dont feel it as much, just like bloodpressure - some can walk around at 170, be a minute away from heart attack and feel fine.
So how do you bulk and cut? You eat 3000kcal maintenance(cruise) and you go a bit lower when you need a cut and a bit higher when you need to bulk, right?
So why do you thing going all in or all out on steroids is an ok idea? Blasting and cruising provides you a steady level of hormones, to which you always fall back to, but never below. Your body doesnt have half the stress it does on cycles because it is in stress when hormones are too much and its in stress when they are too low. BNC never lets you be too low, and later when you blast its also less stress because your body didnt go from 10 to 20 to 0 and then back to 10(cycling), it went from 12 to 20 and back to 12.
Also keep in mind, that the more you cycle the slower you rebound even if the PCT worked the first time. Many people here report fucking themselves up with a single cycle. Even if you are doing ok, sooner or later you wont. As you age your ability to rebound slows, which means you will lose muscle more and faster after every cycle.
Why is this moronic in my opinion? So you cycle to get your body some rest from steroids but you put it in a much larger stress because there are no more hormones in it. It always has to battle either “too much” or fight for something to come back to normal. There is always never a middle ground. There is the highest high and lowest low. And all you do is obsess about PCT to get back to somewhat normal just to start all over again.
I am all over the place because my english sucks and i cant collect my toughts as i would like(the war thing next to me is kind of fucking my thinking) but i did the best i can. If something is unclear just ask for specifics.
