A bridge is a period of anabolic steroid supplementation that occurs in-between full blown cycles, and is normally a more advanced performance enhancement practice. For most men, discontinuing the use of all anabolic steroids for a decent length of time is the best route to take as it allows the body to normalize. However, this isn't always an option. In most cases, a bridge will be a four to eight week period between full-blown cycles. The most common bridge is a low dose of testosterone and perhaps the continuation of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) if it was used during the actual cycle. While testosterone is the most common, a Proviron cycle during a bridge is a solid option; after all, it has the ability to provide more free testosterone. This isn't the most effective bridge, but it can be attempted. If this type of Proviron cycle is used, once again HGH can be included, and if available Dianabol at a dose of 10mg per day if the total bridge is only four weeks as this will provide total androgen replacement.
In either case, both men and women, Anavar can be used for far longer than most oral anabolic steroids due to its low liver toxicity rating and further as it does not appear to taper off in benefit as fast as many other oral anabolic steroids. The majority of Anavar users will supplement for 6-8 weeks but longer durations of 12 weeks are not uncommon, especially during female contest preparation time. Keep in mind, the leaner you are the greater the results will be, meaning, they will be far more pronounced; for this reason most women will choose Anavar during the latter half of their diet to reap the greatest reward.
