The only reason I suggested a total of 8 weeks for a stasis taper, is because I read the words “Performance Athlete” in the original post.
This suggestes to be that the OP will need to train continuously, with little or no breaks and would therefore benefit from the ultra-smooth transition afforded by the stasis taper. He’s also using a 19Nor, which warrants a more cautious approach to recovery, IMO.
The more I think about SERMs, the less effective they seem to be. At least in some people.
THe OP won’t be gaining too much mass, so he doesn’t need to worry about losing that. However he’s doing the cycle for performance, and the lack of performance in a typical post cycle crash is horrible.
RJ: Yeah if the OP went with test prop + mast prop then 2 week blasts might be valid. But then again, I see masterons effects as more of a ‘slow and steady’ compound and as such possibly unsuitable for 2 weekers.
OP: It would be either a 2 week cycle, OR a 6 week (not 8) cycle with stasis taper.
It depends on many things, not least of which are your personal ‘rebound’ abilities, post cycle. You won’t know until you try, in other words.
Taking all things into consideration, if I were in your position, I would be inclined to try the 2 weeks on, 3-5 weeks off, approach.
My reasoning for recommending the masteron was for the SHBG assistance, and the mild AE effects. I think masteron is more of a mirror muscle steroid aside from the assistance it gives testosterone.
2 weeks blasts of test/mast would be the most worry free of the short cycles - IMO.
