The Test / Tbol stack makes more sense for a first cycle than Test / EQ.
The issues you will have with EQ are mostly due to it’s long ester. It will take awhile to ramp up, and it will take awhile to clear out. 12 weeks is pretty short for EQ. Typical is 16-20 weeks. But then you also need to wait longer to start PCT since is takes longer to clear.
The dose is also pretty low for EQ. I don’t think it is too low to be effective, but I think you’d want to run it longer at that dose (closer to 20 weeks).
If it was me, I’d bump the Test up slightly (400 mg/wk). Then finish the cycle with Tbol (20-40 mg/day).
You could also run the Tbol into the bridge before PCT as it clears quickly (~2 days).
I’ve used it a few times. It’s a great compound later in the cycle if you plateau. That is how I have used it. You could also use it at the start while the test is reaching full saturation to make the most out of the first half of the cycle. I would typically use Dbol for this but Tbol would workgood as well.
I may even do this next cycle.
Tbol for me was good for performance. Especially for strength endurance. I could get an extra rep or two while on it, and that was after being on highish Test for like 3 months. It seemed consistent week to week too.
It seems like it is good for progressing in the gym by actually getting stronger over time. It doesn’t magically put on size like some compounds. It is more like natural gains, but faster.
It tends to be in line with what I could read here and there about Tbol.
I think I’ll give it a go guys, I will make gains in any case stacking Test & Tbol, I don’t worry too much.
Assuming I’ll run the proper PCT, which I will do as well as keep my consistent workouts and diet off cycle; can I expect keeping most of the gains or there’s no way I can avoid them disappear over time?
Don’t worry about trying to lose too much weight. Try to maintain whatever body fat you have now and put on muscle. Steroids are good for retaining muscle but honestly for most people that use them they don’t lose enough weight to matter. So you should just stick to the muscle building side of them. Save them muscle wasting side for the pre-contest competition guys.
