Two week cycles?

Topic created · 8 Posts · 723 Views
  • I was browsing around online last night and came across someone posting about two week cycles. After looking around I found a lot more discussions about them. I never knew they were a thing, seems silly. Granted, most of the posts were from a few years ago.

    Anyone have any experience with them?

  • Why would you bother cycling for only 2 weeks? Sounds dumb

    Exactly. I guess Bill Roberts was advocating them years back. Supposedly the benefits were the body not shutting down yet and being able to more safely add 5-10lbs of keepable lean mass over the course of a year with 4/5 two weekers. It still seems silly to me, especially if we’re talking actual cycles/pct… but if there’s any benefit at all, maybe its in the trt crowd, blasting additional short esters for two weeks. who knows.

    Test shut down is not dependent on only the duration of a cycle, so the idea that cycling for a shorter amount of time would prevent it seems silly to me, as well.

    In my opinion, this is like an oral only cycle. Sure, you can do it, and yes, there is a chance you won’t completely shut down your natural test when you do. But why?

    “if there’s any benefit at all, maybe its in the trt crowd, blasting additional short esters for two weeks”
    Would there really be any benefit to that, though? I mean, your natural test is shut down on TRT already, so why give yourself only a mini-blast? I feel like you’d just be giving yourself needlessly unstable hormone levels and potential for mood swings. 😛

    I could be missing something there, though! But I think you’re on the money with saying it sounds silly. I can’t personally think of any significant benefit to doing these mini cycles… at least, I can’t think of why you should do a mini cycle opposed to a full cycle.

  • I’ve heard of people pulsing orals in 2 weeks bursts but like @“Misriah_Rep” said pretty much as soon as you introduce any exogenous test you affect natural production. 2 weeks isn’t even enough time for most compounds to saturate effectively to even be able to get results worth it imo.

  • After reading Bill Roberts work, I tried a 2 week tren/test prop cycle like he lays out. I didnt see any gains in the 2 weeks. I had to extend the cycle longer and started getting something out of it at week 4. I might try it again one day, i still dont know why i didnt at least get glycogen gains in 2 weeks.

    I’m guessing this would have to due with blood levels/saturation, right? The reason that a two week cycle is not effective is because the amount of the compound in our bloodstream at less than 2 weeks is not ideal, nor would we reap the benefits it could provide at that level.

    But yeah, shutting ourselves down for a two week “cycle” sound useless and difficult.

  • Sounds stupid as fuck.
