We both post alot on forum, you got a lot good points, am just getting back into. My first cycle was 200test cypionate weekly, my bench went from 385 at 215 to 425 at a little under 240, i also eat more , trained more aggressively, i think it verys from person to person , saw on another post about a guy doing a dbol only cycle, which i did the next summer went from 242 to 265 bench hit 315x17,405x5, bench, squats 335x28, had some mex vet stuff, came 50ml x 25mg bottle, which i drank 1ml a day if i forgot a double up next day , when i had to go acedemy they searched us so i shot 3ml a day before i went. Back then getting gear was hard to get 90's unless you were in the CLUB, back then i remember guys benching 500 plus. Saying they only took 200test, 200deca, and 25mg anadrol. I was talking to and old silver back who said that was bullshit , the big guys in my area were doing like 500mg test 500mg deca and 50 mg anadrol aday. Anyway im saying start out with effective dose let the traning and diet make gains,not drugs am 43 and have lifted weights for 31 years, not counting the two and a half years of weak trt gels etc. I ve been on a total of 6 years/ 12 cycles. Roughly not counting the prohormones which probably fucked up my endocrine system, which got me on trt.
