Best way of cruising between heavy aas cycles?

Hi there!

I'm just coming off a cutting cycle (from 18st 7lb to 16st 4lb; I'm 5' 11'') where I've used 600mg test cyp per week. I'm pretty happy with the results. However, the end of the cycle is coming and I'm after a bit of advice.

I'm 35 y/o and last time I lost a lot of my gains after PCT (I did 900mg test for 14 weeks). Most probably it's because my natural test levels are starting to be a bit low due to my age.

I don't want that to happen again (I don't want to give two steps forward and two steps back all the time) so this time I was thinking about cruising with something mild so my body can recover. I know I won't recover HPTA function and all that so don't tell me how bad a decision it is. It's my decision and I've got my reasons to do it.

My question: in your experience what's the best compound and doses for a cruise between cycles? And how long do you bridge for? I want something mild that allows me to keep most of my gains.

All help is appreciated.
Javier

    generally test is the only think you need for crusing between cyles, but just kept at a low dose, the avarege healthy male if i remember correct produces aroudn 75mg test a week so 250mg test en or cyp can be used to cruise on, some take it higher than this but really taking it much higher and its debatable if your then cruising  or just doing a lower dosed cycle.

    Thanks Drsquat. I'll do that. I assume that using a low dose of HCG every week is more important during a blast and cruise approach to cycling, isn't it?

    it will be a good idea.. mainly to keep stop testicular shrinkage... But a cruise means your replacing your natural test production for synthetic test.. 
     
    Usual protocol is 250mg test a week.. Either eth or sust is fine.. you can cruise for 2-3 months then blast 8-12 weeks... Its really up to you and what you seek to achieve.. 

    There was a thread a couple of weeks ago on this topic, I remember check the search it was very informative, including the risks... etc..

    generally hcg dosed at around 500iu every 2 -3 days should be fine and can then be run throughout cycle and cruise.

    250mg test per week for cruising is more than is needed surely? I can bulk on 250mg/ week so I would expect to maintain gains at a lower dose.

    the internet guru,s way of thinking is to cruise on 250 test/sust per week, in the real world thats not needed, i use 250 sust every 3rd week

    started at 68kg
    PB,s
    bench: 170kg 3 reps cg 155kg single
    deadlift: 5 reps 245kg 1RM 260kg @knee height
    squat: 200 kg 2 reps
    clean and press 100kg 2 rep 110 1RM
    weight:108kg bf 14%~

    leers: that sounds more like it, i think crusing should be at the lowest possible dose to maintain gains. Any more and it's not a cruise.

    exactly its a low dose cycle if its 250 weekly, lower the better imo

    The cruising dose or TRT dose is actually 250 mg every 3 rd week.

    My body is like a Walking Chemical Factory.

    Testosterone cypionate and enanthate are frequently used parenteral preparations that provide a safe means of hormone replacement in hypogonadal men. Testosterone is esterified to inhibit degradation and to make it soluble in oil-based injection vehicles that retain the drug in muscle tissue. In men 20-50 years of age, an intramuscular injection of 200 to 300 mg testosterone enanthate is generally sufficient to produce serum testosterone levels that are supranormal initially and fall into the normal ranges over the next 14 days. Fluctuations in testosterone levels may yield variations in libido, sexual function, energy, and mood. Some patients may be inconvenienced by the need for frequent testosterone injections.Increasing the dose to 300 to 400 mg may allow for maintenance of eugonadal levels of serum testosterone for up to three weeks, but higher doses will not lengthen the eugonadal period.
