    Exclamation Should You Cycle Supplements?

    I've supplemented for over a decade (and now I just made myself feel really old...) and while my supplements have changed over time and there has been breaks of when I take supplements, I've never actually had a scheduled cycle.

    Is there anyone out there that cycles their supplements? Like four weeks on, one to two weeks off?

    Or are better gains found when supplements are taken consistently without breaks?

    Just curious, would be interesting to see what the community has to offer on this.

    There isn't really a need to cycle "most" supplements unless you become stim tolerant, then it might be a good idea to take a few weeks off and then get back to it.

    Most supplements do not need to be cycled. Stims are one I would cycle, just so you don't go overkill with them and so you can lower your tolerance.

    Would stims include weight management pills, such as Dymatize Dymaburn, or other thermogenics/diuretics?

    Yes. Personally, I cycle the stims I use and I vary the dosing frequently just to keep my body guessing. When you don't get much of a kick from a product even at full recommended dosing, you can either go on a stim break or pick a stronger product. If the stronger product isn't doing it for you anymore at max serving, DEFINITELY take a stim break for roughly 3-4 weeks.
