Is It Still Possible To Gain Naturally Again After Coming Off A Cycle?

I was just wondering whether or not it was at all possible to carry on making gains naturally when you've come off a cycle. Can you still make gains or is the main reason for training after a cycle to try & maintain your gains?

I gained so much so quick on my cycle, it seems almost impossible that I'd be able to make any more gains without the aid of more AAS.

    I think that one you regain your Test levels following PCT you will be able to. Slower certainly...

    That's fine, slower is better than nothing. It's just that I don't want to HAVE to keep cycling in order to make gains from now on, just because I did one cycle.

    Surely if however long after pct your test levels matched those of your baseline test levels then you would gain naturally just the same as you did before the cycle?

    Is there a definite reason as to why this would not be the case?

    Why would it be 'slower'?

    What was your cycle Big V and what gains/strength increases did you witness?

    Cheers

    IMO it depends on how big you are. If you are a really big mofo then when you come off it will be hard to maintain even what you have built and you probably will lose some of it and thus the reason why some people bridge.

    If you are new to all this and still have room to grow naturally then of course you can grow whilst your off cycle. This will depend on getting your test levels back though.

    If you dont want to keep cycling to make gains then you only option is too see what you can achieve naturaly. There will come a point however where you just cant grow naturaly any more.

    My stats are:

    Age - 21
    Height - 5,10"
    Weight - 245lbs (17.5 stone)
    Bodyfat - 13/14%
    Training Experience - 5/6 years.


    Deano, I'd assume it would be slower because whilst on the cycle I'm obviously going to be putting on size a hell of a lot quicker than if I was to train naturally.

    Of course. Sorry I meant why would it be slower than when you previously trained naturally

    I don't think it would

    I think you just misunderstood. What CJW was saying is that when I go back to training naturally again the gains will be slower (back to normal) than what they were whilst on the cycle.

    as size increases then growth slows

    so if your bigger after your cycle (god knows you should be) then after it you will grow much slower than before it ... if at all
