First off, how about some stats about yourself.
Time and time again this magic 500 number comes up. A lot of users used that as our first cycle, I used that as my first cycle. But look at it this way: average healthy young male produces roughly 70mg of testosterone per week. 200mg per week of testosterone cypionate, taking into consideration ester weight is about 140mg of actual testosterone which would be doubling your test levels. Would this create gains? Of course it would. Will it be as much as 500mg/wk, no. But, its your first cycle. You could certainly respond well to a lesser amount than 500mg. But the choice is yours.
