My cholesterol levels while high, are slightly lower than my annual blood tests from January 2019.

I have 7 weeks remaining on my first cycle and intend to see it through.

Stats: 39 years old, 180cm, 103kg which is up from 90kg pre-cycle

Jesus you’ve put on 13kg (over 26lbs) of weight, that’s insanely unhealthy in my opinion. This is why I won’t run testosterone cycles anymore. Cant be anymore than 2-3kg of muscle out of the 13kg?


My 90kg was after a cut for a martial arts competition, so it proper starting weight would be more like 94-96
