I dont think the test to tren ratio has anything to do with it. Again this is just anecdotal, but heres my thoughts.
I think simply that most guys are very familiar with the standard test/deca/dbol bulking cycle.
They run a gram of test, about 750mg of deca and 350mg of dbol and all is well, they total about 2 grams of androgens and feel great and grow nicely.
So they assume, hey I can handle 2 grams, no worries, I do it all the time.
And then they want to play with tren, so they just sub the tren for the deca mg for mg.
But in reality tren is extremely potent and 750mg tren =/= 750mg of deca in terms of affects or side effects.
They are still running 2 grams of androgens but shit hits the fan till they drop the test or the tren down to down to say 300-350mg/week.
Is it really the test to tren ratio ? Or is it simply removing 700mg/week of androgens ?
Lets say tren is twice as potent mg per mg for ease of my demonstrating example in reality its likely more potent.....So a direct swap is ill advised, as now they are running the rough equivilant of almost 3 grams a week of more traditional androgens they are more accustomed to.
Understandably this is a huge jump and is alot to handle for the normal user.
I personally have minimal issues with a gram of test and 800 mg of tren with 350mg of dbol/week.
But had I tried to immediately jump on that as a less experienced user I would have shit fucked myself.
And certainly there are guys, even many that post on this board that can handle these dosages, old dogs like Morepain for example can probably run crazy dosages without getting their shit kicked in.
its all about experience, and what your body can genetically handle. I know my upper limits, I suggest slow and moderate exploration of those limits to avoid any messy problems.
I recommend most people start slow with 500mg/test and some dbol maybe 30mg/day for your first cycle.
Then bump the test to say 750mg/week bump the dbol to 40-50mg/day and add in another anabolic, say deca or mast or bold or something of that nature at 350-400mg/week.
Then keep bumping the dosages till you can easily run a gram of test and 800 or so mg of the second anabolic and 50mg/day dbol.
Then add tren in at 350-400mg/week with a gram of test and the dbol.
Then on the next cycle bump the tren to say 750-800mg/week and see how you do. If its too much, Id rather scale back the tren than the test, drop to say 600 for a few weeks see if you improve, then when you do slowly add it back in, 650, 700, 800.
Just slowly trial and error your cycles, reduce when you need to. Play it smart. I see people running 3 grams in their 3rd cycle with 3 injectables and 2 different orals and think wtf, I ran just test cycles at a gram for the longest time and did just dandy.
People are pushing the limits too fast and fucking up.
