Duchaine on Dosing

On page 13 of “Dirty Dieting” Issue 2, Duchaine mentions a study in which 11 athletes are given 100mg dianabol ED for 6 weeks. They took all 100mg in a single daily dose, and apparently had NO LH or FSH supression.

I have come across claims like this before, but not to this extent.

Here is the link: http://smackdaddymusic.com/dieting/May97.pdf

From what I have heard, most people don’t rate the single dose approach. Plus, it probably won’t matter since you should be stacking with test.

I have heard that this method is employed whilst “bridging”, and sometimes during PCT, to maintain gains. I can’t remember now but someone on here said that taking dbol 10mg each morning during PCT completely fucked his recovery.

Thoughts?

Duchaine although very knowledgable also did many things that most of us would consider on the crazy side.

My personal thought is that anything other than peptides and serms have no place in pct. Id rather not put anything else into my body that will potentially futher supress rather than aide in recovery back to homeostasis.

i think it was Bill Roberts that was in favour of taking 10mg am during the first few days of PCT but I may be wrong.

They both spoke about it. I am going to have to go with the train of tought that when you are off your are off and bridging is pretty much just a way of being able to say you’re not on when you really are.

I suppose if you knew with blood work that you where not suppressing yourself at all bc your dosing was just right. Like say if you where using something like 150 mg of long acting test a week ala P22 test taper style then you could technically still be getting that extra edge and not be suppressing yourself.

I wondered this too. There was that study posted on here that showed 100mg test PW + SERM resulted in no supression. I’m sure an extra 100mg test would give a nice edge, but you’d have to take control of SHBG.

This is kinda similar but not really the same… When I did conventional Nolv PCT I would use 30mg (3x10) a day dbol after my last injection while I was waiting for the test E to clear. I would of course stop several days before my nolv would start.

Now that I use the stasis taper I agree with previous posts in that being off means being off. Once my stasis starts I stop all other compounds except IGF and a SERM during the actual taper.

Taking additional AAS even if they are fast clearing would appear to be indeed messing with recovery. I still have a hope of training natural again one day. But in the end I’m hoping to get put on TRT;)
