Short Steroid Cycles with High Dosages versus Long Steroid Cycles with Low Dosages

Short Steroid Cycles with High Dosages versus Long Steroid Cycles with Low Dosages

Q: “I’m new to anabolic steroid use. For the amount of steroids I have, I need to decide between hitting it hard for a short period of time, or getting many more weeks of use at more modest doses. Which is the better way to go? Will this change as I get more experienced?”

For the new user, the most effect from a given gram amount of steroids appears to be achieved at about the 600-800 mg/week level. In some cases depending on the individual, the lower end might be as low as 500 mg/week.

This isn’t from the perspective of a larger amount somehow being less effective than a smaller amount, but rather, that for example 10 weeks at 800 mg/week will likely give the novice a little better results than would 1000 mg/week for 8 weeks.

So if your situation is that you have a limited amount of anabolic steroids, then the most efficient use is a moderate dose such as 600-800 mg/week for a period preferably not to exceed 12 weeks and even more preferably not to exceed 8 weeks.

If what you have is more than this, then it would be more efficient to plan more cycles rather than to plan longer ones. For example, three 8 week steroid cycles will do more for you than will two 12 week cycles.

The above shouldn’t be taken to mean that even where supply is not so limited, anabolic steroid doses such as 1000 mg/week should be avoided if wanting to be efficient. That’s not the case at all. The above is referring only to when supply is constrained.

The dosage range needed for efficiency will change as you accumulate results. As illustration, upon reaching a muscular size where for example 600 mg/week will leave you at a stasis or near-stasis, it would be more efficient to use a higher dose.



Was a fat kid and major geek.. still am a geek, but now I have learned the truth about health and it is pretty much the exact opposite of what your doctor will tell you it is. Time to go old school and level up our health by focusing on gaining not losing. Gaining strength, knowledge and confidence. The weight loss will come easily.
