question about cycle extension...gains?? is it worth it?

so, a few trainers in my gym,and a few guys i no who are on have been having a debate regarding 'extending cycles and increased gains' longer than origionally planned. the person in question who rose the issue is on the following cycle, tho im not sure at what dose...
week 1-6 dbol
week 4-14 test
 
the question -
after the 14weeks are up and gains are being made steady,is there an advantage to adding in 10 more weeks of test,and another substance i.e deca to increase gains even furthr as the meds are already in your system and working, or finishing the planned course, following pct,taking some time off, and re-starting, same as the above courseor with another substance added in.
 
does it become harder to make steady gains the longer u progress and stretch out a cycle? or with the addition or another med, or an increased dose in the 1st, do growth rates continue at a steady level?
 
As i myself am only on my 2nd course, 1st injectable cycle, i havnt really commentd or pitch in as i dnt have any real experience with the matter,tho it has made for some good listening.
 
So...what are your thought and experiences people!????

    I think gains do slow down the longer you stay on and instead of increasing/adding another med you should up you're food content first then once you hit another plateau possible increase/add med.
     
    Regarding if it's worth staying on, there's been a few threads on this recently; it's personal preference to the individual. Weigh it up and make a decision. Don't let someone else decide for you.

    should imagine it works on the same scale as upping dose i.e diminshing returns over the cycle so gains would slow over the latter period in comparison to the first. The fact is that most people's gains start to slow because they fail to account for the new mass in their diet though.

    If anyone was going to do it ands i'm by no means saying it's a good idea, i've only just come around to deciding to take the longer cycle route myself so i've NO PERSONAL EXPERIENCE on this matter so anything i say should be taken with a pinch of salt... but if it was me and i'd settled on that approach then i'd do four weeks off following the intended final jab of the 14 week cycle OR I'd cruise 125mg of test a week for 4 weeks then maybe a 6-10 week blast after that before a good and thorough pct involving hcg, nolva, clomid and aromasin.... and probably proviron to keep me able to get it up. So Cycle... take a step back to recover slightly and give the body a break from heavy training (not going to do the hpta any favours obviously) then hit it hard again

    It works out 24-28 weeks in total but you'd need to plan a decent and sufficient recovery and take some decent time off afterwards if you wanted to return to your natural levels.

    Weigh it up... risk Vs gains.... is it worth the risk to you?

    Do whatever you see fit.

    seems like a sensable approach Doink
    as i said b4,this is not what im planning on doing, im just new to injectable and am currently running test by itself,so i want to see how i grow on this alone then pct and break b4 i run another cycle later in the year.

    just to clear some things up, cycling on and off is the healthy way to do it,,, but all your doing is taking 2 steps forward and 1.5 steps back, realy the more you stay on the better you will be, the bigger you will be too.. but it all depends on what your goals are..
     
    if i were to compete again id blast and cruise all year

    is it the healthy way to do it though?

    who says shutting yourself down 5 or 6 times over 3 years rather than 6 months on 6 off is worse.... 3 longer shutdown periods in comparison to 6 shorter ones? Does it make a difference?

    Nobody really knows, it's all down to the individual and what measures they take, genetics etc etc etc

    Doink I liked you're point the other day about how when your times up your times up sort of thing. I believe this to be the case to as my Nan ran marathons etc and Grandad smoked all day and drank loads..you can guess who died first.
     
    I know it's down to the individual but I'm at the stage now where having weighed everything up I think I'm going to run a very very long cycle in the not to distant future.

    Same with me mate, i've considered all my options,weighed up the pro's compared to cons and made my decision, meds have been ordered and i'll be starting ASAP, no point waiting any longer just to shut myself down in 6 weeks... time for a change and to do what I need to do to get where i want to be.

    Gotta make some sacrifices to see it through but i'll be a happier man once i get there, Finished with the missus as she found out about previous use, amongst other reasons but i wont go into those... she might even be reading this (FVCK YOU IF YOU ARE YOU SAD STALKING CNUT!!!!! ) ....

    so at least i can give it my full concentration now.

    Should be good....

    1g test
    500 eq
    300-600 deca depending on how things procees.

    t3,ghrp6 and aromasin alongside. Some hcg pulsed here and there as well to keep the knackers ticking over so i dont end up with a pair of marbles!

    15 weeks initially and then a few weeks off before making my next move! Hoping it's going to be a good one. Starting monday i hope!
