14 pounds sorry. And yes. I know most of that is going to be water weight from the dbol, but I can visibly see a difference in the mirror, and my strength has increased massively. I have been eating 5,000 calories a day at 40/40/20 (75% clean diet) (no noticeable fat gain). short cycles with short esters are effective. And they don't shut you down as long making recovery easier, which makes it much easier to keep the gains made.
I read the pdf, but those are all long acting esters, so your point would make sense in that case.
when it comes to tren A, it only has a halflife of 48 hours, prop is similar, and dbol is like 6 hours. so the short acting esters go into affect much sooner, which means you see results sooner. And by only running 2 weeks at a time there is less chance for side effects to start setting in (not impossible tho), which means you can run much higher doses.
