How Long Is Too Long?

For the last two weeks (as of this Sunday) I’ve been on a Mag-10 cycle with M. I’m thinking of going on a 4 week cycle of Alpha Male (5/2) followed by 2 weeks off everything except M. Will this be to long of a cycle? Could I repeat this a total of 3 times in a row with out any negative side effects? Previous to this I was on Alpha Male and M for 4 weeks and 1 week off everything except M. Can you stay on M for that long? Any thoughts, warnings, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.
