I know that results will vary person to person but just curious, what changes / gains do you see from adding Winstrol in on your TRT dose?
I know that you get what you put in and if diet and training aren't right, you won't get the best results but there are studies showing significant (10 to 15lbs) muscle gain in sedentary people who inject 600mg test a week over 20 weeks. These are people that are paying no attention to diet and training.
Before I had any hormone issues, I had gotten into pretty good shape completely drug free. Benched 150kg in competition and got lean enough to see the veins sticking out my Abs so it's not like I've just jumped into training and headed straight for the gear.
During my first cycle, I've been running the same program I used years ago which took me from benching 120kg to 150kg yet have gained only 1 or 2 reps to working sets on bench press.
I've gained around 4kg since starting the cycle which must mean I'm eating enough but unfortunately it seems the majority of the weight gain must simply be water and fat.
Besides possibly water gain, I've had no high test sides, no increased libido, no acne and negligible muscle gain.
All of this really makes me think that there's something else that's not right with other hormone levels. SHBG binding to my test? Prolactin?
I just received blood test results for blood drawn on this cycle and levels came back at;
Testosterone = 59mmol (Range is 10 to 20)
Serum Oestradiol = 129 (No lab range for this but I know this is slightly too high)
Prolactin = 346 mIU/L (Range 56 to 278) This has previously measured at 299 when on my standard TRT dose. My pituitary gland has shown as bulky on MRI scans but has stayed consistent over the past 2 years so have been told there's no reason to worry but have also seen that excess prolactin can limit muscle growth and reduce libido.
Tests included numerous other results which I can post if someone thinks it will help. Tests were supposed to include SHBG but for some reason results didn't come through so I need to chase up.
Anyone have blood test results whilst on a similar cycle to compare against mine? Is the range for natural test production in line with expectations for being on a 500mg a week cycle?
Any more feedback would really be appreciated on this, particularly by some of the highly knowledgeable guys on here like @KSman
