I was on deca/stan cycle about 2 years ago and was on deca 50 twice a week. it was my bad that i didnt read that much (although i did some) but i was just convinced by the trainer in a local gym to take deca.. well i can say i was "enticed" because im happy with my "biggest loser" achievement that i take pride in from being obese to a 140 pound through diet and exercise. he said gear will take me to the next level.
i can say i was lucky enough that i didnt experience shut down. in fact i was a beast in bed and girls loved my body then
i took up 3 deca 50 bottles (10ml each) and 20ml of stan on a four month period and took clomid 4 weeks after my last dose...
unfortunately, of the 10 pounds of muscle i gained, i only kept 3 but the improvement in strength was there. (my max on bench with gear was 150 and i maintained 120)
i'm 5'7" and currently 140 pounds. my diet is good and i'm 29. i want to use deca again because of joint pains i have in shoulders, elbow wrist etc...and a better physique. i looked younger when on deca..i still look young but i guess i looked better and more fit then and yes, immune system improvement. most say deca is great but the only major risk is supression of natural test. its not that harmful to the liver and kidneys and that alcoholics even damage their liver more.
my questions are:
now that i'm aware of possible shut down of my natural test production, i'm having 2nd thoughts..and i know i must use test with deca but how much of it do i need to use and how log (basically asking for a suggestion for a cycle) my trainer is bulk, has been winning contests but his knowledge is more on experience. ask him about the "scientific explanation" and he's uhhmmmm..
i plan to use nolvadex/tamoxifen for my pct.. when should i take it? during or after?
i badly need expertise suggestions... i've been working out for 3 years now.. and has not been on gear for about 18 months. i've been reading a lot but i cant find specific answers to these.
- does deca provide LONG TERM cure for joints? or do you just feel pain free while on it?
