it would be nice if it worked that way. But it works the opposite way.
First off, you almost certainly won’t be fully recovered after 2 weeks. That would be unusual. Expect it to take at least a month for full recovery, if you even get that. More than likely, you’ll recover to about 90%, and never really get better than that.
You’re going to lose all your gains from your cycle eventually, if you don’t run future cycles. You won’t ‘keep gaining the way you have been for years’. Those days will be over. I’m surprised you weren’t aware of this. This is, of course, assuming you’re close to your natural limit. If you happen to have a very high natural limit, this won’t be the case, but most people will run a cycle, lose some gains in PCT, and not really make progress until their next cycle. If you can even MAINTAIN your gains post-cycle, you’ll have done better than most people.
I’ll also address your question about blood draw vs. pinning.
blood drawing doesnt hurt at all. pinning hurts, especially when you’re new to it. and ESPECIALLY prop. think about it. blood drawing just stings when you stick the needle in. That’s nothing. When you pin yourself with steroids, you’re introducing a foreign substance in your body. It can create knots, it can crystallize in the muscle before being absorbed, you might hit a nerve, etc. it’s an IM injection, not IV. There’s nothing to compare between the two things. A lot of people experience flu-like symptoms following their first couple injections.
Finally… your assertion that ‘most bbers are in good health in their 40s and 50s’ is not necessarily accurate. I’m not sure how you came to this conclusion. This is not a healthy sport, my man. I think you’re looking at it through rose colored glasses. A lot of bbers may project a healthy life, but that’s just not usually the case behind the curtain, so to speak.
EDIT: Just to add to this, I just pulled up your picture. Nice work naturally, you look fucking great. You’ve definitely got potential.
