What’s the rationale behind changing gear every 4 weeks? He mentioned how in a 12 week cycle, he would recommend changing 3 times and he went on to give examples.
It is supposed to keep receptors ‘fresh’ - and allow gains to continue without stagnating(sp?) in longer cycles. IME (nowhere near milos’ of course) i find one change of drug in a 12 week period decent to keep gains coming.
I am not personally convinced in how necessary it is - i mean, a receptor just knows if it has activity at it by a binding drug, not what type of drug is binding especially by the time a drug activates an AR it is just an androgen AFAIK. HOWEVER i would be lying if i said it isnt a protocol i dont employ.
There is something about the classifications of AAS that lead me to suspect there may be a benefit in changing tdrugs with different AR binding strengths. This thought process is using the cycle example where one non-AR mediated AAS is used alongside one AR mediated AAS. The non-AR AAS is most often Test, and the AR mediated steroid is usually changed.
I personally run 4 week cycles often… sometimes 2, 3 or more added together with different compounds, all frontloaded of course - so this includes longer esters too. I also run 8 week cycles of one compound as a maximum, but may have considerably longer on.
A visual example is; 4on, 4on, 8off/6on, 6on, 4on, 16off/8on, 4on, 4on, 6on, etc…
I (personally) also change the Test ester often - this is kind of redundant by my reasoning, however it is as much about having access to all kinds of products and using up equal amounts of them, as much as the possibility of having a non-stagnating effect. I do use dbol as a non-AR steroid fairly regularly too, and sometimes just use TRT dose test while using dbol and an AR mediated steroid. Proviron would suffice in this situation.
I hope this makes sense.
I wonder if someone could take the time to highlight more of the article? - I dont have sound on this computer…
its kind of hard to highlight but the things that stood out for me
he said he doesn’t advocate more than 750mg/wk of test
he switches drugs every 4 weeks
a cycle consists of an anabolic oral + anabolic inj + androgenic oral + androgenic inj.
he mentioned not going over 750mg/wk of any drug.
some of the cycles he outlined seem to fall in the 1.5g-2g gear/week range.
didn’t touch on slin/gh/other peptides
talks quite a bit about diet and such as well.
I’d suggest finding a speak bud lol It’s a decent listen for all of us who like learning as much as we can about this topic. Plus as I mentioned, it’s not ED that you hear a ‘guru’ ,that is known to train olympia competitors, speak
hows everything been with you lately anyways Brook?
He did touch on GH dosing and carb intake for a few minutes as well as his view on longer duration peptides. Brook, it is definitely worth a listen. Make it happen.
