Just finished up my first cycle of Test E 250 and wow I am disappointed.
A little background - I am a competitive bodybuilder that, up until this point, havent ran any "real" cycles before. I have previously ran PH's before and have had very satisfying results... more than once. Been able to keep all my gains after being off and have had zero sides. Now that I have actually ran the real deal, I am unsure why everyone always bashes PH's. Now I know that you can potentially take more drugs and/or higher doses, but I would rather take a pill and get decent results, no sides, and keep my gains.
The cycle looked like this:
-Week 1-4 Dbol and 30mg per day
-Week 1-8 Test E 250 at 500mg per week
-Week 1-6 Adex at .5mg EOD (stopped taking after week 6 as I wasnt noticing any sides)
Typical PCT of Nolvadex post cycle as well beginning two weeks after my last pin.
Anyhow, results were pretty disappointing. I gained about 10lbs while on, but all that water weight disappeared two weeks after I was off.
My diet is on point, I work with a reputable prep coach and I plow weights day in and day out. I was really expecting a lot from this cycle, but came up very disappointed. My workouts were never that great while I was on and my appetite actually slowed down quite a bit. All in all, I never felt good like I was expecting. Strength didnt increase, weight was meh, appetite was meh, and my damn energy sucked.
I guess my expectations were too high? Since bodybuilders in "real life" all seems to beat around the bush when trying to discuss these things in real life, I figured I would post on here.
Any thoughts? Comments? What the hell guys?
