Best Frequency to Inject.......

I am about to start a cycle of Test Cyp and Equipoise (mostly for joints). I respond very well to this cycle and this would be my third time to do it.

Would I be better off to inject 2 times a week and split this dose, or just do it one time a week with the full dose. Or does it even matter? I was going with 400mg of test a week and 400mg of equipoise. This doenst sound like much gear but I get great results from this combo.

Hey - Its similar to a cycle i will be doing. I will be doing cyp either E3D or EOD, depends what dose i finally choose.

I will be doing the EQ weekly.

There is no need to do the eq more frequently than that.

I like injecting so i may buy something that needs pinning regular… but thats just my hangup.

Run them both E3D or 2x/wk just for simplicity.

Isnt it just as simple to inject just Test’rone on monday mornings and test and eq on thursday evenings?

I have read that with Eq, as it has such a long half life, it is better ro do once a week, it gives a more steady level. it has a half life of 14 days, once a week injections give a nice steady level.

JJ, whats the best ancillaries to keep on hand for EQ?

It would be, but then you would also have a rather high volume injection on Thursday. If you split them evenly then you would have 2 injection of the same volume.

Well i havent used it yet - but as i am going to be running oit with test, all the usual suspects letro/adex and i like to have a serm on hand too.

But for Eq alone, i personally wouldnt waste an AI n it, i would use some proviron throughout (obviously!)and if i had an issue i would use nolva only… but i really dont think i would have any issue from Eq.

For me, i have noticed that the lumps i have under my nipple from ays gone by tend to swell up whilst on cycle, and as long as i look after them with the correct drugs in the correct way - then it goes down after cycle… as if they are just temporarily aggrivated.

Nolva does it too - and i assume it is the nolvadex on the receptors aggrivating it in the way it does but that is weaker than the other estrogens circulating.

When i stop they go down again.

I’m only talking about the size of a dime here… or a 5p for the brits!

I’m with 2thepain here. While JJ is right about EQ have a very long ester and it could conceivably be run as a weekly inject, the body’s levels of any product will be more stable and consistent with more frequent injections than less frequent ones. That’s a pretty simple concept.

Other than upsetting the injection sites, having more soreness, and the greater possibility of infection (all of which can be avoided), are there any other downsides to more frequent injections? I don’t see how not having daily injections would not be of more benefit given that one would have more stable levels of any given steroid in their body.

I dont thin saps is suggesting daily injections but more like bi-weekly, tri-weekly.

I love injections. i just miss the hott nurses.

There was a guy who I won’t mention by name but he actually one recommended doing the following.
If you wanted to be on say a weekly dose of 700mg of Test E do daily pins of 100mg ED. Its kind of finding a balance between convenince and necessity.
I mean sure 100mgED is going to provide more stable levels than 350mg twice a week. Which is why calculating the frequency based on half life is also a factor.
