Is A Steroid Bridge Useful?
There are 4 threads already, but since those threads, experience or opinion may have changed, So I dragged this up for you to read, and perhaps share your thoughts, experiences and opinions


Q: What do you think of using a mild steroid like Anavar to bridge between cycles? Is this a good idea to maintain mass between my normal cycles? If so, how much should I use?

A: There are many issues with “bridging” that should make the average person think twice about it. For starters, every anabolic steroid known to man will suppress testosterone production when used in doses sufficient to promote muscle gain. Studies have confirmed notable testosterone suppression with therapeutic doses of oxandrolone, so you are S.O.L. if a recovery bridge with Anavar is what you (like many) were hoping for. The next issue is the simple and more general fact that you are not going off steroids with a steroid bridge, and are potentially exacerbating the negative health aspects of their use, such their effects on serum lipids and cardiovascular disease risk. If you are spending your entire year going from strong cycle to lesser oral (Anavar) cycle, you are undoubtedly always going to be negatively altering your lipids (orals tend to be particularly harsh here, in fact). You may be putting yourself in some notable risk as the years progress. You need to remember that the whole point of cycling is to minimize the negative health risks of steroid use. The fact that these drugs have potential risks really cannot be disputed, just addressed intelligently. Bridging may be a very unhealthful way of sustaining these risks indefinitely, instead of mitigating them with off time. Don’t bridge with steroids!

Non-Steroidal Bridging



If you want an optimal “off cycle” program, you really should look at non-hormonal anabolic agents and/or supplements instead of anabolic steroids. For example, I know many guys that like to go off steroids and onto a cycle of Human Growth Hormone or IGF-1. Many others use this time to undertake a detailed program of dietary supplements. I’ve often recommended a 50-60 day stack of Creatine (3-5 grams per day) and Arachidonic acid ( 750-1000mg daily) for this purpose, which are both very effective natural muscle-building supplements. Truth be told, a number of professional athletes I know are using this combination between cycles/during testing periods right now with excellent results. Post cycle, these supplements can do an excellent job of helping you maintain the hard work you’ve put into your physique while on cycle. They also make an excellent non-hormonal anabolic stack in general.

A branched chain amino acid (BCAA) product might not hurt during your off-cycle time either, as recovery may be slowed compared to what you were used to on-cycle. It should help you recover faster and get more out of your workouts. A fish oil supplement might also be a good idea to help balance your lipid and triglyceride levels, which remember were likely altered for the negative during your steroid cycles. Off-cycle may also be a good time to invest in some of the other general health promoting vitamins and herbs etc. that may be fond of taking. The bottom line is, your off time is supposed to be “off time” for a reason. This is the time to let your body get back to its natural state of hormonal balance, and for you to enjoy a period where you are not using steroids and perhaps placing certain strains on your health. Take advantage of this time and use it for what its worth – keeping you healthy and happy

Hi King
A good sticky on here Recommends 10mg dbol first thing In the morning.
Theres also info to back up the logic in doing this.
Apparently 10mg wont keep you shut down, and will allow you to recover while staying somewhat Anabolic. I wont really know until I have actually tried it.
Bridging with test may keep you shut down, I think restoring HptA between cycles in important,
Would be nice for anyone to chime in, whos used bridges of any kind to share their experience.
Thanks for the reply king

why are you trying to bridge cycles. at your age you should be cycling and cruising. if you try to go back natural you will lose everything you gained and than some. my .02

Hi WW
not trying to bridge, just wanted to know how bridging works,
im looking into some of the things ive never done.
usualy I go on for 4 or 5 months, then off with pct and a break altogether
then ill go back on.
my understanding is that bridging is a way to join 2 cycles either with very low AAS or peptides.
cruising is a period with low test, before blasting with higher dosages.
cruising+bridging both seem to be links to another Full Blown cycle

you can cruise with any AAS, it doesn't have to be Test. bridging doesn't work IMHO. cruising is the only option. my .02

^^^Amen^^^ That is my opinion as well. I'm 40. Screw it. Why PCT and lose some gains when I can cruise with some test in between cycles. Being in the medical field; it only makes sense to me for the age I'm at. I will will be on stay-young juice till the day I die know. Heck, I make great gains on minimal gear. It's all about diet and proper training. I see ass clowns that run a shit ton of gear and not make a single fricken gain cause they eat poorly and have no proper training work ethic. I agree totally with you WetWorks!

I got real resistant after like 5 months. I changed up compounds but I get better results if I take like a month break after three or so.

sorry about my poor english ,
but im trying to contribute ,

alot dont stop AAS ,

they made cycle , 6 or 8 or 12 weeks ,
but dont stop between 2 cycles ,they call it "be off"
but they take 300mg/week ( test E ,test P .....)
and take gonado (HCG) 500ui every 2 week's all year long

they are really off , only in summer when they leave home.
but off = anavar/winstrol tabs..... (off = no oil / no injection)

to lisent these guy ,they made low cycle ( 600/900 mg week (only test))
....

all is relative.
my first 3 cycle are never more 300mg/week , (for 198 lbs for the first & more after )
and always take 8-10kg (18-22lbs) in 9 weeks ....

like these guy , if you dont want stop
dont forget , HCG/proviron/clomid .....

Im on trt so I never go off. I cycle then go back down to 150mg a week. This amount keeps me looking full year round. Now when i cycle I mat gain a pound of muscle per cycle. Last in 2014 I gains 6 pounds after a contest on a rebound cycle. The most I ever gained in my like. From 600mgTestE/1000mgEq cycle.The trick is good food and quality gear.

I agree either your on or your off bridging is a myth. There is no such thing as taking a compound between cycles. WTF they call it a cycle for a reason!!

Its called TRT I'm 54 and no reason for me to ever go off at my age and I never juiced til I was 47. I'm about as strong as Ive EVER been..Test only and lots of it the TRT for 8 weeks and back to 1 bottle of Test E a week plus Test Suspension on bench and deadlift days 1/2 hour before I train my blodd work comes back amazing and I finally found a REAL TRT Doctor who takes my insurance and gives me vials. I plan on tearing up over 50 legit world records and beating some of the young guys again soon this winter..Right now I could totalclose to 1600 ..I expect to be at 1650 by next meet that's a 100 pound plus over my last meet in 2012
