I just finished my first cycle
It was 2 weeks at just over 500mg test prop/week, injected about every 36 hrs
Added in dbol for the last couple days because i had it, and wanted to see how I responded.
No PCT planned, except for low dose (20 mg) dbol in the morning for 2 days after last shot of prop, ala Bill Roberts 2 weeks cycle.
Goals were to gain a little weight and mostly strength. I am an off season track athlete, but am focusing on lifting in this off season.
Starting weight: ~174
Ending weight: 188
Strength gains: minimal, only got real strength gains one I added in the dbol, but that was for such a short period of time it didnt really have much of an impact
This stuff packed on weight like nothing else. I was eating ~6000 cal/day, tons of protein. In the past when I tried to gain weight, no matter what i ate, I would gain maybe a pound or 2 over a couple weeks.
With the prop i gained about exactly a pound a day. Unfortunately It had little effect on strength, which was my main goal. However I did notice a difference after only a couple days of added dbol on strength.
I had no side effects. The only thing i noticed is that I didnt sleep very well (have you guys noticed that with test, i know peope talk about it with tren…), and that my workouts seemed less hardcore if anything (anyone else noticed this?). I dont know if anyone else had this experience, but I didnt feel any better i the gym compared to normal.
Im 19, and my friend and I both did almost the same cycle. I think this is an interesting note to make about teenagers on a cycle. I gained about 15 pounds, and he has gained 3. I think it has a directly to do with knowledge and application of training and diet.
We have both been lifiting for the same number of years, but I have gained a considerable amount more strength and size than he has, and have made it to Div I sports, and recently (and in the process of) setting some weight lifting records. I notice the difference in his training and diet, and can see EXACTLY why hes not making better gains.
I am under the impression that it is not exact age that one should be considering a cycle, but their ability to execute a solid training regimen and diet.
Conclusion: amazing weight gain, minimal strength gain without the dbol. We will see how much size I keep. No side effects. I am taking 2 weeks off and then doing another 2 week in similar fashion, but slightly higher dose and dbol throughout.
