I’m 41 been on TRT with intermediate short cycles of increased test for about 2 years. I also run a basic peptide cocktail of Ipamorlin and CJC-1295 w/o DAC. For me I respond great to test and peptides, however over the past year my joints started really age. Both my knees have shown to have cartilage loss due to age, and squatting. My right shoulder has a SLAP tear and my elbows are suffering from tendonitis. I’ve tried just about everything, some of which works to some degree, but I convinced myself that I wanted to try Nandrolone and see what effect it had. Well about 4 weeks into what I will term a therapeutic cycle, my knees feel great. I’m running about 40mg every 4 days of NPP along with 100mg of test on the same schedule. I’ve had blood work done last week and my Hct is elevated, but I somewhat expected this so, I donated blood which dropped it down 4 points. Also my Estrogen levels were a bit elevate so I went from .25 of Anastrozole to .5 every 4 days, and this got me back in check.
I can’t say enough good things about NPP, I feel 15 years younger in the gym. I do realize or at least I’ve been told coming off Nandrolone is going to suck. I’ve played with the dosages a bit and 40mg seems to be the magic number for my bodyweight 90Kg. I’ve tried 30mg and 35mg, with longer gaps between injections and the knee pain does start to creep back in. I really really like this stuff. It’s UGL and not pharma grade, but I have been impressed with the quality and service of the company I bought from.
So my question is, how long could or should I run this low dose of NPP? I initially planned to run NPP for 8 weeks. I’ve heard stories of guys running Deca indefinitely for life, or is this urban legend. Whats the concencius?
