Coming up for 11 weeks now of 420mg test e with 20mg dbol kickstart. Back on dbol for the last 2 weeks as test was so disappointing. I’m 6’2 and been training naturally for 7 years. Training intensity is higher than anyone I see at my gym and I have a thorough knowledge of diet. My genetics suck but I thought steroids would help me overcome that - to some extent they have and I see how I could build a great physique with prolonged and varied drug use.
Went from 180lbs to 208lbs, arms grew an inch chest grew 2 inches and legs grew quite noticeably. Put at least 20lbs on every upper body lift and more on squats. The thing is I stopped growing after about 7 weeks, when everyone says the gains start.yes I kept gaining weight and minor strength improvements but measurements didn’t change and I started to get fatter. The whole eat 1k surplus on gear is bullshit - I got fatter by the day when I tried to unleash this magical nutrient partitioning that people mention.
Now trying to lean out a little and tidy up my physique before coming off. Currently 200lbs which is a 20lbs gain from start of cycle and leaner, but I literally look the same only ever so slightly fuller. I actually feel like the test was bunk but a few of my mates use the same source and I’ve got a lot hairier so I doubt it. However there was no sex drive increase after the first 2 weeks. No alpha male feeling, no feeling of wellbeing, nothing. Just felt the same as always and bare in mind my natural test level is only 400ng.
Now I look better than most natural lifters in the gym but the dbol helps a lot with the pump. Test alone was a massive disappointment and as soon as the kickstart stopped the strength gains slowed right up. Just a reality check for anyone considering a first cycle …it works but the visual effect is minor and you won’t transform your body with a test and dbol cycle.
