So I'm very new here, in fact this is my first post. So I would like to say that despite my numbers I've been lifting for a while, just not powerlifting. I was a competitive olympic lifter for a while when I was in my teens, and was on an extremely successful team.
With that out of the way, My question is what can I expect in terms of strength gains on a cycle of test e(750x10 weeks) and dbol(50x6 weeks). This is my first cycle. The reason why I ask is because I would like to get an idea of what it would be relative to myself and not trying to develop an opinion based upon someone else.
My strength progresses pretty quickly. For instance I run the lilliebridge method and I am currently on week 7 of the program. From week 1 to 7 my estimated max has increased from a 385 squat to well over 400(I just hit 375x5, that was supposed to be a double). My last heavy squat week, which was week 5, I only had 350x5. Same story on my bench, and deadlift. My friends in the gym are telling me that's not really normal. Since I'm about to start my first cycle, what would you say my strength gains will look like?
And I can prove those gains if you would like me to.
