Ok you want to gain about 20 to 25 lbs of lean mass during this cycle? Thats not going to happen at the dose you had on your thread. You would definetly have to raise the dose on the test and and keep the deca a litle bit under (test 600mg & deca 500mg /wk). By the way have you ever herd about tappering down dosages or front loading? Also the biggest portion of what you are going to gain is going to depend on your diet.
The pct is going to help you retain a big portion of your gains overall.
What you really need to do is do some of your own research and come to us with some sort of knowledge of what you want to do. Just saying that you want to gain 20 - 25 lbs. of lean mass dosn’t give us a thing to work with. Everybody would love to gain 20 - 25 lbs. of lean mass and keep it all!
Come up with a final cycle plan (after you have done a lot more research) including compounds, dosage, pct, goals, and something about yourself. We know your age and how long you’ve been working out but we don’t know anything else. How many days a week do you work out? What is your diet like? Are you dedicated to what you are doing or are you just wanting something to do it for you? I saw that you weighed 225 lbs. but what is your body composition (% of fat). I could go on forever. All of these things matter when your wanting help from people who don’t know you or can’t see you. You can never give to much useful info.
Man I wish every newbie could read this…
