This is my first ever post. I have been reading T-mag for about 2 years now. I have read all of the articles related to steroids and I am going to use the 3 weeks on approach with a 4th week to taper off. I will be using a mild cycle of 200 mg’s of Deca/week and d-bol starting at 12.5 mg for the 1st week and going to 25 mg the second week and on tapering down to 12.5 for the 4th week. I will be taking Milk Thistle and other liver protectants. After reading the article “steroids for health” I got the impression that a cycle of such short duration does not have any side-effects. Should I be taking any anti-estrogen’s and clomid and the other usual things when going on a longer cycle ? I may be paranoid, but this being my first cycle ever, and taking into consideration the length of the cycle, should I be concerned about side-effects ? Last question I have, is regarding steroids and heart health. Not a single article I have read addresses cardiac muscle growth. Does the heart, which is a muscle, also grow when doing a cycle ? If so, would a 4 week cycle put me at risk or is it too short ?
