Time on = Time Off

I know that time on cycle is the time you should have off between cycles, but what would happen if you didn't adhere to this and just left a couple of weeks between cycles? Not a major consideration just curious

cheers lads

    time off should be long enough to allow full recovery of the hpta, not necessarily same as time on im

    The time off of is to let the body recover and get back to normal so if you dont allow enough time off you might as well just stay on all time!!

    But my advice is you only get one body and im sure everyone would love to jump straight back on cycle straight away but respecting the rules makes you not abuse aas.




    STEP 1 - Admit you have a problem.

    Time on = Time off is that safeest way to use aas. However depending on your goals, etc. and how far your willing to go that obviously might not be the case, look at the pros.

    well no im o you dont just want to stay on as i find better gains by coming off for a few weeks then back on time on = time off is the safest way but unless your extreamly gentically gifted you probably wont win any comps this way! just my two pence

    you could end up damaging hpta imo if you keep going on, then off etc.etc.

    Worth the wait, you then love it more when your on!

    Shut up and squat

    So the main reasons for adhering to the time on=time off would be to let hpta recover, and not doing so could have adverse affects. I suppose you can just get impatient, as everyone knows its brilliant when on cycle!

    That is just one concern. Others would be lipid readings, platelet counts and possibly liver function readings etc.

    Also, it's worth bearing in mind that you are not at all guaranteed that 'normalisation' has occurred simply by adhering to time on, time off. The only way to know is by comparing blood work. Depending on the individual and their particular cycle, hpta for example could take many, many months to fully recover.
