Without a long discussion in the subject in which i have much opinion and thus a great deal to say…
As per the first question - which admittedly i should have answered… first.
I don’t remember how many cycles i have run or what the results were from each, but this last run lasted 6 weeks and was using a dose which was at the highest level 1050mg/wk total AAS and i gained 15lbs of which i know i will keep all of it (because i have done it before and know these things).
I would say that as an estimate the absolute most of fat that accompanied that will have been 5lbs (1/3rd) and that was because i was eating like someone who honestly doesn’t get to say they care about how they look, and i honestly deserve every damn lb of fat added.
I do not enter a cycle expecting anything over 5lbs of actual muscle, and i truly consider that an achievement because really, it IS an achievement especially considering what is involved in 5lbs of muscle gain for a (truly) natural person.
With regards to you - do you eat cleaner on cycle? Train harder? More frequently? Avoid alcohol? Stop sniffing cocaine?
Many times much of the gain is due to these factors as well as the effect of the steroid themselves.
What you are saying Brook is both reassuring and a kind of relief to me. As you have followed, my cycle has been successful thus far, and I would be delighted if I were to maintain 75% of my gains. I have followed an almost impeccable diet, along with an insane intense workout regimen. I honestly think that I would have gained a good deal without AAS, but the AAS and proper diet, workouts, no alcohol, etc. have just intensified it. I plan to continue in this fashion during PCT in hopes that most of my gains are keepable. I honestly believe that I will keep most of the gains, b/c my fat gain has been very minimal, which is kind of a shock to me, but I suppose expected since my diet is cleaner than Mr. Clean’s bald head.
Instead of continuing rambling, I really think that a lot of AAS users condone what consistency and a great diet can do for you.
