For what it's worth, I assume you squat high because most football players do. Hitting legit depth can be humbling if you're not currently doing it. When I see a huge squat number, and a mediocre deadlift number, that's a red flag.
And yea, that's pretty much going to be the consensus. If I were to use epistane, I would run it at 50 or 60 mg, and that would be on top of a reasonable amount of injectable testosterone, 500mg or more per week. I think epistane's not a bad choice in terms of the prohormones out there, but it needs to be used in conjunction with testosterone to yield reasonable results. Even for someone doing their first cycle. Prohormone-only cycles are all but worthless in general.
