Is it Worth Cycling Gear?

I Hope someone can set the record straight is it worth cycling gear, most guys in my gym say it's not worth going off and have a bridge cycle, this means and low does of gear. I have read that most Pro's stay on it all the time...anywayI do cycles and do PCT etc but when your off it's not the same really. So is it worth cycling, you're just stay on it until of quit training or reached you're goal.

    cycling is better for your health, and for your lil guy's to recover, if you stay on for years i would dout your natty test would return to normal, but saying that i dont no?

    i believe with a healthy active lifestyle and some good knowledge and aas/peps use etc that you can live a longer stronger better life.

    main interests: physique conditioning, bbj, muay thai.

    If you take supps to help while on cycle, like Liv 52, and then to a bridge cycle. I know a few guys have been on straight for 2yrs plus...but they don't take a huge amount of gear, around 500mg - 750mg PW? and keep it simple test and deca, eat, train hard and there massive!!

    You need to come off to let your cholesterol and blood pressure come down.

    Also your body responds better when the gear is cycled.

    I had a hard think about this and the only way is to have a blood test and see, most people I know just change the gear they are taking, example they might to on say test/tren for 8 weeks then change to deca/d-bol, then change to something else

    of course you need to cycle, your body needs to recover, how many bodybuilders live past 50? that should answer your question

    From your posts I feel the need to tell you that your an idiot.

    Nothing contributes so much to tranquilizing the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.

    i think the recreational user whos is concerned about long term health should cycle to be safe .
    however anyone ive spoken to who competes at a high level or basically any of the big lads ive spoken to simply dont come off !!

    i spoke to a pro about all this and when i mentioned time off and pct he looked at me as though i had two heads and just laughed so that kinda answered things for me !!

    as for the comment about not many bodybuilders living past 50 ?i dont know of many that havent lived past 50!!
    you cant tar every long term user with the same brush ,obviuously you have guys that have died young but have took a collosall amount of drugs ,others may stay on long term but not use a fraction of the drugs as others who have died.

    look at arnie and sly ,they look pretty good to me and there well over 50 now ,they look alot fitter than any 60 year old i know

    i used to have a handle on life but it broke

    Steroids have been used since the 50's mate so Arnie, Zane, Platz, Colombo, ect ect ect

    All the things I say are what I have done and what I have found instead of what i have read.

    im going to stay on for a fair bit now i think

    no point coming off only to go back on a few weeks or at max a couple of months later

    so the plan is to get to where i want to be by blasting and cruising then run a very intense recovery cycle

    Balls are for pansies!!

    Yeah you're refering to Ed Corney mate, and he was about 70 years old at that time. As you rightly say; dunno what put him in the wheelchair - but hey, at 70.....

    I think training & attention to diet, etc will set you up well for your later years. I wanna be massive & ripped in the old folks home & impressing all the old grannies!
