    Anyone considering the Arnold-cycle?

    Arnold's 26 week cycle of Primo, D-bol and Deca was posted recently (by Victor I think). I'm just curious if anyone has or is considering subjecting himself to this cycle? The layout did not list any testosterone, which I believe should be included, but Arnold's cycle obviously worked wonders combined with his genetics, diet and training. Nor is it believed he did took an AI and he didn't do PCT for the mere fact that he did not actually come off but instead "cruised" on lower doses od Dbol and Deca. I've done Primo, Dbol and Deca but never as laid out in a lengthy and high dose cycle such as the one Arnold apparently did. Am I thinking about his? I would be lying if I said I wasn't. I'd be reluctant to do it w/out test nor an AI though. And I wouldn't repeat as he did w/out coming off and doing PCT. But I first want to know if there's anyone else who would actually consider the cycle as laid out in a previous recent post titled "Cruising on 'bol". If you're unfamiliar with this cycle it goes as follows:

    Blast
    Weeks 1-5
    Primo 600mg EW
    Dbol 60mg ED

    Weeks 6-10
    Primo 800mg EW
    Dbol 80mg ED

    Weeks 11-14
    Primo 1000mg EW
    Dbol 100mg ED

    Weeks 15-17
    Primo 800mg EW
    Dbol 80mg ED

    Weeks 18-20
    Primo 600mg EW
    Dbol 60mg ED

    "Cruise"
    Weeks 21-26
    Dbol 30mg ED
    Deca 200mg EW

    Note: No Test, No AI and No PCT

    Then, repeat above cycle

    Test is not included because the d-bol is serving as the androgen replacement and will help to maintain libido. The only issue is that it is 17aa and run for 26 weeks. That's pretty extreme...

    There's no way Arnold was running that, he had zero gyno.

    Using the DHT based Primo could of helped prevent the gyno. Along with luck. I believe this is an accurate cycle of what he may of used. Like GMO said the dbol served as the test. I believe that if you added some things to this to bring it up to today's standards of what we know this could be a very good cycle but would still be a cycle with no breaks. Which if you are on HRT is not so bad. Because you are on all the time anyway. The Dbol dose is high and the duration is long. Some people say that the 17aa steroids are not as bad on the liver as suggested but we know that it does put at least some type of strain on the liver based on blood work. I would lower the duration and the dose and replace with test. I would add aromasin for an AI to be safe because we all are not as lucky as arnold. For the cruising part of the cycle I would use test instead of Dbol. Not sure if I would include the Deca. If you are already on HRT for life then I guess why not include the deca just to give it a try. I don't know what to think of this yet but it is not that extreme compared to what many pros take today. I would be much safer than using things like slin and all the other extras people include nowadays.

    Makes sense that the Dbol was replacing the need for test from an androgenic stand point. I would consider doing it as a "mini" Arnold-cycle. That is, scaling back the doses and cutting the cycle length about in half. Just to get a taste of what a Primo/Dbol cycle can do b/c I don't know anybody who's ran Primo and Dbol together and only Primo and Dbol together. I would add an AI and follow with PCT. I have to finish my current cycle, PCT and time off before making a final decision. I also might substitute the Dbol w/ a more "gentle" oral after 6-8 weeks. Anavar perhaps. Total cycle length would be around 14 weeks. Then, maybe cruise on Test for a short time until PCT. This is just an idea I'm mulling over. It's interesting to know if anyone else is thinking of running a modified version of the Arnold stack.

    I would def include the Deca with the d-bol, the two ran together produce ridiculous gains.

    I kinda want to do a "mini" Arnold cycle of lower dose Primo/Dbol for 8 or so weeks, just to see what it's like.
