I've been on test cyp for 3 weeks only 200 mg a week. i use to be very week then i worked out a bit got my max to 155 yes i know very week. i started my ten week cycle at 191 i now weigh 200.4. My max before i started was 155 now i bench 185 twice. are these good gains for three weeks and should i expect better results around five weeks alot of people said i wouldn't see much till the 5th week but i have gained a little bit of size on my arms and pecks. and if any one has a good workout routine for bulking i would be greatly appreciative. And rember im a newbie.

You put on 9lbs and added 30lbs to your bench all by yourself! Testosterone Cyp at 200mg for three weeks has had zero influence on your performance and weight gain other than persuading you to do the work. Keep it up!
Unless you were deficient in endogenous testosterone the testosterone dose in barely enough to bring you to the high end of the clinical range and that would still probably take about 4 to 6 weeks or so to achieve.

I think this is mostly just from eating more... You will actually probably notice as your cycle goes on you will no longer gain, because your nuts will stop producing test....
The dosage your taking is actually on the low end for hormone replacement therapy...so what is going on is your getting the 200mgs from the injection your taking and your body is producing some test as well.... over the next couple weeks your body will continue to slow if not stop producing test because your taking it exogeneously....and once again, the amount your taking is on the low side of what your body naturally produces...at this dose, you will be worse off in the long run, especially when the cycle is over. Just my two cents.!!!!

200mg is on the high end of replacement dose. Once he is inhibited he will be around 1300ng/ml which is well above the clinical range. I have TRT blood work at 200mg/w that corroborates the chart below almost exactly.
I would agree that he will be worse off in the long run as he will need a PCT for cycle results that he could have achieved without testosterone, by, as you stated, and I implied, eating well and exerting effort in the gym.DepoT TotalT SHBG FreeT SHBG FreeT

Also I think besides eating right, he is on a low dose and probably getting gains because his testes are still producing his own natural test plus the low end of test he is injecting..that combined will give him a higher level...as the weeks go by and his natural test begins to drop...your gains will level out, and then have to go thru PCT at the end, or you may end up being smaller then you started...
but like David said, what are you doing using anything at your experience level or knowledge level.

Your friends on 300mg are probably dealing with anti-agining clinics. I know one who will write scripts up to 500mg/wk if you ask. Any legitimate endocrinoloigist or urologist will usually run you at 100-125/wk, and only go higher if your free test level stays low at that point. In terms of base testosterone production, normal human amount is under 10mg/day. Heres a study

so should i just stop now and wait till i can get more test or increase the dosage and shorten the cycle.

you probably should stop now, because its a waste. You make so much in easy muscle gains and fat loss for at least the first 3-6 months of training that there is no point in wasting anabolics then, you won't get any additional results.
