    If you completely stopped training, it would take 3-4 weeks to start losing mass and strength.
     
    You can just relax and take the month off completely, this will let your joints, muscles and CNS/brain rest from training. You will come back refreshed and ready to train harder than ever. 
     
    If you wanna mess around with the push ups and pull ups, there is research showing that very high reps with minimal weight is actually pretty effective at preserving mass.
     
    In your situation, i would just stop training for the 4 weeks and let the body rest. You won't lose muscle or strength, and any bit that you might lose will be back in 2-4 weeks thanks to muscle memory. ( a very real and awesome phenomenon )

    Can't access gyms for proper workouts for a month or so.
    Cruising on 150mg test now 8 weeks.
    In short, would every other day of pull ups (maybe 10 sets of 5-10...to failure) and push ups (again 10 sets of maybe 20-50 reps) to failure, maintain all muscle mass? With adequate protein.
    Time is too much Essence and I literally have 30 mins to workout (inc travel) a day, so was hoping a ton of BW stuff would do me okay without any muscle loss for a month or so @ElChapo
    i know it's subjective, I'm not massive. 6ft 185-190lbs 10-12% bf or so

    @ElChapo
    Just got bloods 3 months into cruise of 150mg pw
    eveeything perfect, test at mid-range trough, E2 mid range, rbc kidney etc all great 
    only thing is my ldl/hdl is still SHOT. It's like 15% ration (wrong ends of both "normal" brackets respectively).
    It was like this whilst on 150mg test 300mg tren (as expected, which I ran for 7 months). 
    I expected it to improve 3 months into a cruise? Don't take any supps - can you suggest any?
    I already do cardio 3-4X a week for 20 mins medium-high intensity, and have a lowish bf (never lose abs).
    ill cruise for another 3 months and re-test, just want to know everything I can do in then meantime. Happy to not bulk/cut just maintain and take a break whilst cruising, and just reccomp over summer.

    What's funny is elections are held here every 5 years and 4 years in the states yet the mere mention of a second referendum has the btexiteers in a dizzy even though it's been near 3 years since the vote. If so sure the result won't change then why the resistance? I'm not that bothered about a second referendum myself but just find this scenario amusing. Personally I think vote will be lost next week but rather than second referendum it will somehow be slightly tweaked and will be agreed by the EU but will still be s**t in that worse than what we were whilst in EU but hey ho we'll have 'left' Europe.

    Devil reacted to Shadow in Brexit update - Your views?   
    The only people who will ever say "We've had the vote not just accept it" are leavers!
    Typical misconceptions:
    1. By coming out of EU we will have full control over immigration. We've always had control over non-EU immigration and accounts for 

    An estimated 240,000 citizens from other EU countries immigrated to the UK in 2017, and about 140,000 emigrated abroad. So EU ‘net migration’ was around 100,000—the lowest level recorded since 2013.
    Estimated non-EU net migration, meanwhile, is 227,000 a year—the highest level recorded since 2011. It has been almost consistently higher than EU migration for decades.
    2. Getting rid of non-skilled EU migrant workers will open thousands of jobs for UK citizens
    63,000 NHS staff in England are EU nationals - 5.6% of all staff. Overall, 12.7% of NHS staff say that their nationality is not British. Data on the nationality of NHS staff for doctors, nurses and other categories, and changes since the Brexit vote. A high percentage of these workers fall into the 'non-skilled' workers category.
     
    3. We will be better off with exports and imports once we're out of the UK
    In 2017, UK exports to the EU were £274 billion (44% of all UK exports). UK imports from the EU were £341 billion (53% of all UK imports). The share of UK exports accounted for by the EU has fallen over time from 55% in 2006 to 43% in 2016, increasing slightly to 44% in 2017. Imported goods will be more expensive due to tariffs and additional delays down the supply chain. As a result, your average household food bill will increase if we do not remain part of the customs union. Exporting Tariffs will increase the cost of goods leaving the UK so will result in loss of Sales.
    and finally...
    4. The NHS will be much better off once we leave the EU (£350m+). The reality of Brexit is vastly different to the fantasy Brexit that was mis-sold to the public during the referendum campaign. The promise on the side of the bus of an extra £350m per week has crashed into the inconvenient truth that there is no Brexit bonanza for the NHS, only a Brexit penalty. The committee heard evidence that pharmaceutical companies are already spending hundreds of millions on contingency planning. Ultimately these costs will be passed on to the NHS and taxpayers, money that would be far better spent investing in patient care. This is before we even contemplate the effect the migrant loss will have on staff shortages because most UK born residents refuse to do the menial/low paid jobs currently undertaken by migrant workers.
    I think what a lot of people don't realise is that the UK Government ( as part of EU membership) voted positively for most of the laws that people are complaining about being introduced by the EU. So even being outside the EU many laws would have still been brought in as a direct result of UK government
    Just my two penn'orth.

    Lol every single economist, BoE, treasury and the like has cataorgically confirmed there is NO circumstance or deal where we don't LOSE value, GDP per person etc etc. At best the economy will shrink between 5-8%. Yay. We have voted to become poorer.
    Most that want out STILL in light of all the actual facts evidence and lies over the last 2 years are just fvkcing stupid and don't understand or are blind.
    I partially get why some voted leave 2 years ago (believing lies etc yay 350 mil for NHS bus) but cannot for the love of me understand why they would now.
    Its proven statistically lower IQ people voted out and also a huge % of that did would have died (old) in the last two years. Whilst a HUGE amount of 16 year olds are now 18 and overwhelming would vote remain.
    Leavers say "it's democratic we have to go now" (based on an advisory referendum btw) are being so ignorant they fail to realise what democracy is.
    They  say "take control back of our laws". We voted with 94% of all EU's laws!m! 94%! Is this worth the 6% where we didn't.
    Didnt know 6% is taking control.
    The DEMOCRATIC thing to do now, would be, in light of all the information, have another vote
    a) no deal
    b ) may's terms/deal
    c) remain
    Notice as soon as the suprireme court confirmed we could easily remain, sterling instantly  rose in value.
    Tldr - another referendum is the democratic thing to do and the right thing to do (as we will end up remaining strongly).

    200-300mg of gear (especially if 19-Nors are in there) should and will put you at an incredible advantage compared to "natural training" - literally many many times better and able to progress in every lifting aspect 
    This would also have minimal to no sides and less long term major health implications 
    Now, reason why you more commonly see 500-1000g etc of total gear with people is because it's over-compensating for inadequate diet and/or training. A lack of either but an increase in drugs will give better results regardless. So the first instance for everyone is want more increase drugs, if that makes sense. Anyone taking 500mg test 500mg deca/tren will progress throwing crap around and eating poorly. 
    125mg test with 100mg tren, optimal diet and training routine (with proper progression, structure etc) and you can reach dizzy heights still.

    Agree mate
    as I said if he wants to compete or wants gains over everything then it's nowhere near sufficient, you won't put 10kg on in 8 weeks or hold every ounce of muscle in a massive diet if you're huge (100kg lean etc). 
    But he said "well enough", for which in my mind if someone can't do "well enough" on a few hundred mg of gear (esp tren) then, whilst blasting and cruising, they have serious diet or training issues. 
    You will still gain probably 5x faster than natties who can train "well enough" (or so they think!)

    I've made good gains on 250mg test e p.w.
    If you get your diet,training,supplements,sleep and rest in order,you can make significant gains on low doses.
    Get all them in order first and then add gear.I've gained 10lbs on small doses like stated above.
    God knows what I'd gain on a gram p.w.
    Most guys I see at the gym significantly overtrain,and then use lots of gear to compensate for this,and they're poor diet and sleep/rest patterns.
    They can't follow a plan,but will take massive doses of drugs and pay no attention to every other aspect involved with gaining muscle.
    Shortcuts work for sure,but you'll pay the price one day.
    It's senseless taking massive doses of drugs if you don't compete.
    Use the least amount that you can,to make gains on.

    It also depends how much your looking to gain, like these goals, you ain’t going to put on 10kg useing 125mg test and 100mg tren e a week, no matter how good your training and diet are.
    everyone bangs on about not needing as much gear but everyone’s goals are different, the doses @Devil quoted (good to see you back on here by the way bro) would be good for most thst want a slight body composition change and little push in strength and just to look a little better.

    Yeah I think if you trained hard enough and made strength gains with progressive overload you could definitely gain muscle with doses like that. I’ve ran Tren Ace at 50mg eod (175mg a week) alongside 350mg test propionate and results have been good with that. I think the results will depend more on the diet and training rather than the cycle.
