Bodybuilders and athletes who use anabolic steroids often do so in "cycles" of several weeks to several months, followed by a period of time off the drug to allow the body to recover. The number of cycles one can run per year would depend on the length of the cycle and the length of the off period. For example, if someone were to run 8-week cycles with 8 weeks off in between, they could theoretically fit in three cycles in a year. However, this does not mean it's safe to do so.
