Time Between Cycles?


I have recently finished a cut which lasted 10 weeks. I was wondering how long I should have off before starting my next bulking cycle? I have researched this with many different sources to get a different perspective on it, however, I haven’t found any definite information on whether to have the same time off as I had on cycle, have less time off, or have more time…

Someone please shine a light on this subject.


a good rule of thumb is to be off for as long as you were on
Ex. 10 week cycle + pct time : 12-14 weeks off
everyone cycles differently however, and some people just never come off…

I understand that you have to be off for a certain time to allow hormone levels to return to normal… Just wondering if anyone has any personal experience on how long.
