OP's comment was directed at me?? lol..
maybe he just didn't appreciate the way I presented my point of view..
here's an analogy - your body is like a high-performance automobile.. you want to go faster (gain muscle), so you add NOS (steroids). the NOS makes you go faster than you've ever gone before - you've achieved a new level of speed that you've previously been unable to reach.
however, when you stop the NOS, what happens? your automobile begins to slow down.. it doesn't immediately return to it's previous (Pre-NOS) speed, but it will be there eventually.
what's more, the usage of NOS likely damages some parts in the vehicle, so not only will you not be able to go as fast when you were using NOS, your pre-NOS top speed will likely be even lower - each cycle chips away at your HPTA's ability to recover, and your natural testosterone production will become lower, and lower, with each cycle.
add NOS, go faster.. use more and more NOS, and go even faster. Upregulation of androgen receptors means you will need to use more steroids in order to achieve the rate of growth that you had on lower doses - I.E. you grow quickly on 500mg test, your AR upregulate, so you must now use 1000mg of test in order to grow at same rate as with 500mg.
in short, any gains that you made with steroids will diminish once you stop using them. it may take months, but eventually, it will happen. this is why I advocate blast and cruise.
BONEZ (an old poster) was not a fan of advocating B/C, though he used that method himself. He recommended gaining naturally, and using AAS when dieting to help preserve muscle.
but I digress.
