I ALWAYS recommend EQ over deca. Deca can have lots of shitty side effects, ESPECIALLY for people who cycle off of steroids.
I don’t experience ANY negative sides from deca, and I still would never use it again because I find EQ to be such a better choice!
EQ drastically increases hunger, vascularity, endurance/stamina, and is a great bulker! IT doesn’t pack on the water weight either, more of a lean bulker, while deca can make you pretty bloofy! EQ takes a while to kick in, so id run it minimum 12 weeks preferably 16+ weeks!
EQ has a very heavy ester attached to it, so I would run it MINIMUM 600mg, I think 800mg even is fine even for someone newer to steroids.
My close friend wanted to try a cycle, and I got him to run 400mg test with 600mg EQ and he had a phenomenal cycle! This would be the cycle I would recommend to any beginner for a bulk!
This is just my opinion, and many people love deca! EQ is my go to bulker though!
