World, I know we’ve discussed the short cycle concept repetitively but has your reason for the high dosage been discussed before?
World kinda kicked this concept into overdrive when he started a high dose short cycle a few months ago; he has a thread on it. Three things are true. One, without doubt or question a higher dose will give you better results than a lower dosage. That is 800-1000mg is “better” than 400-500mg. Two, an 8 week cycle is a shorter duration to be suppressed than a 12 week cycle. That’s just pure math. Since anything beyond a physiological dosage i.e. 75-100mg a week will shut down your endogenous test it does not matter if you take 400mg or 1200mg shut down is shut down. Three, there is not the kind of widespread popularity for 800x8 as there is for 500x12. World has been asserting this protocol largely because of his own success. Theoretically it makes sense. In practice it works. I can attest to the fact and many multi-cycle vets in my weight class can as well that there seems to be a sweat spot with gear for the median average. 1-1.5g a week seems to be a great compromise for maximum gains and minimal sides. Once you start crossing the gram and a half a week point you really need to start paying attention to sides. So whether you run 800mg of Test and 400mg of Deca; 750mg of Test and 50mg of dbol ED, 150mg Prop EOD, 50mg Tren Ace ED and 100mg Mast EOD the point remains the same. There is something about that level, again right around a gram to a gram and a quarter which really gives you enough juice to gain and yet not having to worry so much about sides be they estrogen related, acne, sexual or whatever.
Now by no means is this an absolute rule. We all know guys getting gyno with 500mg a week and what not. But the question was has this been discussed before. The answer is yes and here is even more discussion. Again 500x12 is the same total amount of gear as 750x8. So if you were going to gain 15lbs from 6000mg of Test Enanthate why do in 12 what you can do in 8? Now certainly there is something to be said for the saying it goes away as fast as it came. Fair enough. But that just underscores the need for a quality PCT. Its also the reason there is more support for the statis taper protocol amongst higher dosage users.
