Days 1-11: 100mg TA eod (150mg F/L)
Days 1-14: 50 mg Dbol
Nolva on hand also
Currently I’m into day 6 of this cycle.
On the day I started I also upped my calories dramatically - eating around 6,500 cals now.
You may ask why the low TA dosage? Well, basically I wanted to see how I responded to AAS first before moving on to heavier doses.
I must say, I am not too happy at this point.
The weigth gain has been great - I weighed in this morn at 202Ibs. Up around 12 pounds already. Its the first time I have ever gone above 195. I dont “feel” THAT much bigger but when I look in the mirror I do notice the added size. ALthough a loose T-shirt would defenitley hide the size i think it would be noticeable with a tight T-shirt or topless. I think I have put on a little fat but I still look around the same bodyfat. I do have a more powerful look.
However, the point I am dissapointed on is the total lack of strength gain. To this point there has been ZERO strength gain, which surprised me.
In fact, yesterday, when I was doing deadlifts I was quite a bit weaker than ususal. Normally, I would have gotten 400 for 8 reps but yesterday 375 for 5 felt really hard. However, I have put it down to a bad day.
Bench is exactly the same as is the squat. Actually, I only got 315x2 on the bech and it felt quite hard.
I am not “feeling” the AAS at all. No Dbol pumps or great feeling of well being. I sort of notice the tren in the past couple of days as my growth has become a bit leaner but no strength increase. Thus, I only really notice it visually but not in the physical sense. No water retention to speak of. No marked increase in aggression (I am a pairly laid back guy anyway though) While I did have a little more ‘drive’ during my bench workout, I had zero drive during my deadlift session.
I suspect two things.
One: I went too light on the TA. In hindsight I should have gone 75 per day (150 eod). I will do so next cycle.
Two: the Dbol is eiter fake or crappy.They are generics. The brand is Gamma pharmaceuticals. I have never heard of them. No results came up on T-nation or google. The only thing I found out is that they operate out of Zambia, but they have no website of their own.
To be honest, I was expecting a quick kick start from the Dbol and some good pumps but both are absent. Next time I will go for a better known brand - I can get my hands on Anabol so I will try that.
This leads me to believe that my gains in weigth are primarily due to my dramatic upping of calories and the low dose of Tren. From a size perspective the gains have been good but I am disspaointed thus far with the strength gains.
In the past 3 days I have also noticed the shut down from the tren. I guess I have a case of Tren dick. While I would LOVE to have sex I feel it would be a lot more difficult to keep it up. Thank god I will be able to bounce back really quick during PCT (becoz of no HPTA shut down).
I am hoping that next week the strength gains will appear. My weigth is still steadily increasing and I will try my best to keep this going. It is going up at a rate of around 1.5-2Ibs per day at this point and is farily consistent.
ANyways, I am not goping to be training for the next couple of days so I will have some good recuperation time and time to eat too.
I will update you soon on the progress.
