    Blast to cruise

    For those who blast and cruise, can you give me a ballpark idea of what I can expect to lose as far as strength and weight go? Just for reference, I'm on 700 mg of test and 450 mg of NPP a week. I'm going to cruise around 200 mg a week for a month or so. My workouts and diet will remain the same but may try to take in more calories so I don't lose weight. The only thing that will change is my AAS dose. Something like 10% loss of strength and 5% for weight loss is the type of answer I'm looking for. Thanks in advance.

    I haven't been blasting and cruising for so long, I've only had one cruise so far: 5 weeks at 125mg test e, which was after a test and deca cycle. While cruising, I ate only 150g of protein and I dropped the number of sets in my training.
    I dropped 5lbs or so, which I think mainly consisted of water from deca. Strength dropped a little, mainly on heavy compounds. 10% at most, though.

    Don't up the calories bro. With 200mg of test in you, there's no way you will be losing muscle.
    In fact, I recommend you drop the kcal and especially protein. Do a smaller number of sets as well while cruising. Let your body relax for a couple of weeks.
    Then when you start blasting again, up the kcal and the sets to shock your body into growth.

    Blast to cruise

    Appreciate the feedback. It seemed like I hit a plateau while just on the test as far as strength. When I added the NPP my strength started going up again and I suppose I'm concerned to lose those gains then just gain it back when I blast again then it just be an endless cycle of up and down. This is my first time cruising but I was gaining on as little as 250 mg a week of test only so hopefully I keep most of what I worked for.

    just keep this in mind, even if you arent blasting you need to keep working hard, every little bit counts.

    Blast to cruise

    Absolutely. I leave it all in the gym. That's why I can't workout during my lunch. I tried it and I had no energy the rest of the day to do any work. Training is never the issue with me. It's diet and eating enough calories to maintain or even gain. I have an over active thyroid and super fast metabolism so I burn food really fast.

    Yes but I don't like them. They are very heavy and make me feel sluggish. I like whey isolate and I can usually eat a full meal soon after. I don't really want to gain anymore weight. I'm about the size I want to be. If I added 5-10 lbs I'd be alright with that but I enjoy playing sports and being too big and bulky makes me inefficient. I lose too much flexibility and speed. I also don't want to be the "obvious" steroid guy b/c my job and other personal reasons. I
