My goal is to keep this progress long-term and to build on it. I will take a couple of months off to train naturally before I jump into another Testosterone Cyclone again! George and the guys on the forums assured me that I can run this cycle a couple of times per year and stay healthy and looking good, as long as I train right and get enough rest. I did not believe it before, but really, there is just no limit to how good I can look."
Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
