I’d be interested in hearing others lean weight and strength increases from pre-steroids to post-steroids.
Pre-steroids (Sept 07):
30, 6’3, 230 lbs, 8% bf (211 lean mass)
Flat Bench 265 x 6
Shoulder Press 165 x 6
Pull-Downs 200 x 6
Post-steroids (May 08):
31, 6’3, 254 lbs, 10% bf (228 lean mass, 8% increase)
Flat Bench 305 x 6 (15% increase)
Shoulder Press 205 x 6 (24% increase)
Pull-Downs 230 x 6 (15% increase)
This is from being on between 100-200mg HRT doses of test over 8 months, with some HCG thrown in here and there. A few weeks ago I added 100mg per week of Deca along side 100mg test prop per week. I may add 100mg per week TBol shortly as a boost here and there.
I believe I was pretty close to my natural maxes as I had stalled for years around those numbers.
Obviously these numbers will increase as time goes by, alongside any increases in dosages. I imagine many of you will have much higher percent increases from being on longer and higher.
I have no squat or deadlift numbers sadly as I have a bad back and generally substitute one legged versions to save the stress.
