T Nation

One week on / 2 weeks off with Androsol?

Bill or Brock, I know that you guys suggest the 2 weeks on / 4 off to circumvent T suppression, but if suppression was really a concern do you feel that even shorter cycles such as 1 week on / 2 weeks off could be effective? You would still be on for 2 weeks out of 8 and from the feedback I’ve seen from others the even the first week can yield significant gains. Also, if anyone else has tried this please give your opinions, they are highly valued. Thoughts please?

Your cycle idea would certainly give results, but I don’t think it’s quite as good because recovery after 1 week is not, so far as I can tell, faster than after 2 weeks, so, doing twice as many cycles (of half the length) and having twice as many recoveries, I figure you have twice as many days of temporarily-low testosterone. That may be more important in theory than in practice, since the losses people are having after 2 weeks of Androsol seem to be only glycogen and glycogen-associated water, not muscle.

Certainly if your system appeals to you, I wouldn’t hesitate to give it a try.
