+ 5 What's the Longest Period of Time you have stayed on Blast & Cruise for?

ad

I am putting up this Poll for Simon Magnus who came up with the idea in relation to his recent successful attempt at Totally Recovering his natural Testosterone levels after being on Blast and Cruise for 16 months.

If you successfully managed to recover your own Test levels when you came off then please detail the protocol you used in the comments section below together with the Level (number) you achieved if possible, so we can have a good understanding of what is possible after various numbers of years of being on constant AAS use Smile

PLEASE REMEMBER TO HIT THE 'VOTE' BUTTON AFTER YOU HAVE MADE YOUR SELECTION GUYS - A LOT OF MEMBERS LANDING ON THE PAGE BUT SEEMINGLY NOT REGISTERING THEIR VOTE LOL

Coming up on 40 years old stay on blast /cruise 1-3 years at a time usually have to off cycle when I’ve lost a source get burnt by one or get tired of sticking myself I run Hcg the whole time 800-1000iu a week 50-100mg Proviron daily when I off cycle 50-100mg a day of clomid 50mg novadex and up the Hcg to 1000-1500 weekly for 6 weeks when I get off I’m not running a crazy amount of gear tho 600mg mixed test usually switching when I plateau 300mg deca/eq I’ve never had a problem off cycle jewels never shrink (Hcg) function never lost I’ve had kids on and off cycle my weight fluctuates 220-260 depending on food intake and how often and what I’m doing in the gym. I’ve got buddies doing trt through a “doctor” that have been on test a and test c 8 plus years have kids on it and definitely didn’t need trt to start with Hcg seems to be the key they run it as well doc prescribed one of them turned me on to it in 2012 made a huge difference

Has anyone used HCG while blasting and cruising for 2+ years to keep from totally being shut down?

mightywarrior619's picture

I've been using HCG non-stop for 3 years now. Not to prevent being shut down but just keep everything working better down there! I use about 1k iu per week. Works for me.

Aquaman22214's picture

Are you thinking that you will maintain fertility or is that not a concern?

mightywarrior619's picture

No, fertility is not a concern for me as I had a vasectomy 20 years ago!

Aquaman22214's picture

Ah yes. That will do it haha. Im 35 and trying to maintain some fertility. I dont mind spending more to run hcg the whole cycle. Sounds like nothing is a sure bet though.

Age 21-32. Blasting the trifecta Test, EQ/Deca, Tren. Monday, Wednesday, Friday. OR cruising on just Test. Quit totally at 32. No protocol for coming off aside from tapering. Now I’m near 40, proud father of 2. Back on TRT with a little primo and GH. Nothing serious LOL I am definitely lucky. I wasn’t ready to make those decisions at 21. I will say we eat great and our healthy people. I also never stopped training. Low test is brutal though. Patience is key.

Hey bro, what’s your primo during cruise? How does this affect your well-being?

9 months. Mostly blasting. Feel much better on higher levels of test (2ml a week). Only time I ran PCT was after my first cycle, lost all gains and felt low for some months. I think age, compounds and amounts, play a big part when discussing ethical usage. If I hadn’t had kids yet and was in my twenties/thirties I’d be running PCT or not using at all.

press1's picture

Very true buddy, if you are still wanting to have children and haven't done so yet then that will surely have a big influence on staying on testosterone. As you get older in many ways you would have thought TRT would be more healthy than your own declining natural testosterone levels - especially when you consider things like bone strength and mental health/happiness. The downside is obviously being a slave to the needle for the rest of your life. I don't think I would have an interest in TRT though if I didn't train at all.

It’s an interesting one as I wonder what benefit many men would have who are 40+ and decide to use trt or higher levels of test without gym benefits in mind. Overall confidence and feeling of well being shouldn’t be negated by steroid abuse and narrow minded views surrounding test usage. I’d have thought many men would find vast improvement in their lives with or without wanting to build muscle or increase strength from replacing lowered testosterone through age.

KonstantViktory's picture

This question would be better assessed if we went over specifics like chemical activation, steroid and PED activities like base board usage, how much, etc and of course whether or not blood donation strategies were followed and what sort. Really changes the logistics of the situation.

Also don't forget that steroids don't knock your nuts off if you know what you're doing.

The only cruise I have been on is TRT since 2020. Prior, my doctor used clomid as hormone therapy. My natural state is around 175-250. I had a semen analysis performed last week showing I’m shooting blanks so I will let yall know if the wife and I decide to get the factory up and running (at least attempt to).

I hope my factory stays closed. Some of my inventory is over 25 years old, no signs of moving out. SMH

I ran tren for 7 months once. Probably minused a year or two off my life expectancy with that one.

I think the longest blast n cruise for me was...
A couple years. I'm on TRT. Self prescribed trt for about 10/12 years.

Actually its because the nail forms a rigid base behind the fingertip which allows us to grab and pick things up easier as you press against it! And it also provides extra protection for the end of the fingertip.

10+ years. My protocol was simple

Tapered down my cruise Level (200mg ew) to 50 mg in a month period. During that time I took clomid 50mg eod and 6k iu each week. Took me 4 months to get back to normal levels. Got my wife pregnant at month 5

Base line: lh and fsh were zero. Sperm: less then 10% motile
5 months:
Lh: 10.3. Fsh: 13.6. Test: 660. Free test: 15. Sperm: greater than 70% motile

Not going to lie. Was easier than I thought. But I felt miserable for all those months. Lots of weight gain, lethargic, brain fog etc.

Back on my cruise and feel much better Smile

Very Interesting buddy, I can imagine it was one tough ride! So what was it like training then whilst you were going through all this - was every workout getting worse in terms of strength and energy that you had because I imagine if you were pretty much bottomed out on testosterone in your entire body you were just losing muscle at a massive rate constantly?

Johncream1's picture

Yeah. It became really depressing because I couldn’t do any of the lifts I was prior. Had to almost restart again from the beginning it felt. That was super depressing which made working out harder etc etc. after my body started producing again my strength went back up to where it was originally when I was cruising which was super cool to see. aesthetically I looked chubby and meh though

So have you cycled since all of this or stayed at TRT level?

In a cycle right now lol. Dropped 20+ pounds first. Got my diet and workout plan in order.

Test/eq cycle with tbol (first 8 weeks). So far it’s going great. Best cycle I’ve done thus far

I didn't because of cost. Now with these newer sources I can get all I want and use as needed. Never will do a cycle without the MWF protocol.

Thanks for the Poll Press. This is a very interesting topic because I believe most are afraid to cycle off from a psychological standpoint or body dismorphia. I’m under the impression our bodies would respond better if we cycled off more often. So what gives? Why do most stay on for so long?

Another reason is to let injection sites heal.

Rosschestzip's picture

Also there’s some very well respected and educated guys in the industry who have said it may actually be unhealthy to yo-yo up and down, on and off to only have a few weeks or a few months of actual time off. BUT for all the young idiots (like myself) who might use this as an excuse to justify just staying on all the time, he had said it’s definitely healthy to come off, if your doing pct correctly and coming off for a good amount of time. What he was referring to was guys who will go on for 4 months, take two weeks off, start some half assed pct for 3 weeks, then stay off everything for like another months and jump back on. And when he said it may be healthier to just stay on, that was at a trt dose in the normal range not a supraphysiological dose that most of us would do.

So I know I’ve used this kinda as justification to just stay on longer than I should, even tho I understand full well that’s not really what was meant when this was said, also it may just be speculation and not fact.

For sure buddy, I'm guilty of it myself. I think that whatever is the main reason for you training and using steroids - be it getting stronger or bigger, leaner or all of them put together then we know that once we come off we simply cannot keep and sustain those areas anywhere near as well as being on gear. We don't want to face reality again after feeling a much better version of ourselves for a number of years most likely. Now certainly if you come off when you are younger you are more likely to lose less gains as your natural production will more than likely pick up more quickly and be at a better level once it does - but us older guys know that once we come off those young stud great testosterone levels are more than likely to be a thing of the past. There is also how much training means for you and how serious you are about it in your daily life, or whether its just a hobby you get into now and again for 6 months to get in reasonable shape again, but then come off and do other things as you have a family and more life commitments. There are definitely more reasons to come off than stay on if you want to remain healthier and live longer, there is no argument at all there.

simonmagus84's picture

Exactly press. I couldn’t have set it better myself. Yeah I’m not as strong, lean and don’t have the same mass but I have peace of mind. It doesn’t matter to my kids or my salary what my BF is. This is just a hobby for me as well as educational experience using compounds. If I truly love fitness, then I shouldn’t have to depend on gear but rather the love to be active.

I want to be buried with my gear bag. Probably going to be a challenge finding sources in the afterlife, LOL

Cruise is your drs script given trt. Thats for life.

Blast is your cycle. Shorts....6-8wks. Longs 12-14 depending on ester. Eq closer to 16ish.

Stokes500's picture

Not where I come from mate …TRT is is testosterone replacement therapy normally around 125mg per week but under 200mg … cruise is where you drop off your cycle/stack and run just test at a lower dose normally around 300-400mg to maintain ,then blast is your full on cycle / stack where you jump back on heavy to grow

I guess what we are really saying then is how long have you stayed on synthetic testosterone/steroids overall for and then come off and regained natural testosterone production.
