I have a problem with my bench being weak for some reason (trying to address it in a different thread, still need to get a video made) but my main lifts are: Squat 455, Deadlift 560, Bench 245ish.
I’ve run 3 cycles of test only in the past. First was 500mg/week pinning Sunday night/Thursday morning. Second and third were 650, same times.
I’ve never run a stack. I still have about 30ml of Test-C 250 and 40x 1mg Arimidex on hand. I was thinking I’m about ready to run another cycle but I believe I’m ready to try adding another compound. My goal is to add some power and size that I can keep. I would prefer a dryer agent rather than adding a lot of water weight, but I can cope with adding water weight on top of good solid muscle gains and then just running a shred after. I have considered Winstrol for because I know it will not yield much water retention but can have some good strength and muscle gains when stacked with T but I am open to suggestions. I also would not mind advice on dosing. I have done my HW and can determine dosing, PCT, estrogen control, etc. on my own, but I am looking more for some friendly opinions, advice and anecdotal history to help me determine a path for this next cycle.
Also, I have read that some compounds can actually yield greater results at the injection site. While T is not one of those compounds, I’ve read that other compounds will actually trigger more growth in the region which they are injected. Is this actually true or is it a message board myth? I wouldn’t mind pinning shoulders to jump start some new growth in the region.
