Well I have been a lurker here for a little while... didnt want to seem to ignorant and ask to many stupid questions... But I wanted to say thank you for all the great information!
About me: I have always been the skinny kid when I was young, no matter how much working out I did I hardly saw any gains, high school I was a twigly 135 (and I am 6'1!!!) after that I was between 150-165... now when I hit 30 I went to 170, and not much of it was muscle, but now after 5 weeks of working out, and just starting a cycle of test/deca I am 185... still slim though... but things are going in the right places and getting bigger.. woohoo!
My cycle so far:
week 1-6 400mg test/200mg deca
week 7-12 600mg test/300mg deca <---- starting this next week ---
week 13-18 700mg test/350deca
week 19-24 600mg test/300mg deca
week 25-32 400mg test/200mg deca
week 32-36 250mg test/125 deca
My workout is 3-4 sets with 8 reps with a 90 second rest between sets... I try to only work out 2-3 areas of the body at a time and not opposing muscles... (so triceps are not the same day as biceps etc...) Depending on how I feel I try to work out 4 days in a row with 1 day rest, one day work out, then rest one day, then work out 4 days in a row... on the 3rd week rest 4 days... then cycle that again...
So far I have noticed myself lifting twice the amount of weight since I began (6 weeks but only 5 weeks on AS)... any modifications to maximize bulk? I sleep enough (9-11hrs) and eat quite a bit, plus take multivitamins & somesorta stem cell growth pill & anti oxident..
Well my question is on this cycle, how long should I wait till I start the next one? If I only do one cycle, how much of what I have gained will I lose if I only work out without any help from test or deca?
Well thats all I can think of for now... thanks in advance for your help!
