Thanks size. I'll probably order some and give it a shot. It'll take a couple of weeks to get here so I'll stick to nolva in the meantime. Thanks again.
Incidentally to those who are following along. The water retaining effects of the dbol have hit big time. My quads don't fit into my jeans anymore lol. Muscles in my quads, lower back, and forearms feel tight all day long, almost pumped. It's a great feeling!

Ok not a lot to report in terms of the cycle. My personal life took a real turn for **** so my diet/training have been hell this week. I'm trying to pay up for the difference in appetite by upping my intake of protein powder, efa's and the like. Hopefully the emotional turmoil will be over this weekend and I'll be able to get myself back on track. Wish me luck guys!

Okay things have been going great. Hit a vein on my last injection....curious sensation, knew I hit something just didn't realize what until I removed the needle.....squirt!
Bodyweight has began to climb and weights in the gym are out of this world. I put on more weight on most exercises and still get more reps than i did last time. Awesome!!
Bodyweight is now up to 184 pounds.....that's a ten pound increase so far.

Just as a side note I've been using squats as my reference exercise all along so here's today's numbers:
Squat previous weight 225 x 28 (rest-paused)
today 265 x 20 (rest-paused)

Hitting a vein is odd. I can feel it but can't explain it.

Thanks guys. I have to admit that I went into this with the "lets just see" attitude but it has been awesome. After the first couple of weeks you look, feel and actually act different than before. Confidence soars.......I think I'm loving it too much.

Exactly. I knew I hit something more solid than just the muscle but it didn't really hurt so I aspirated and then injected. When you remove the pin you find out what you actually hit when the blood squirts out behind the needle. lolOriginally Posted by size

Things have been going pretty well. Up another 2 pounds bodyweight. It's funny how people look and react differently to me now. I have been getting many compliments about my increased muscularity from ladies where i work.
Eating is my biggest obsticle every day.....i just don't have a huge appetite so I force myself for every gram of protein. Oh well, I'm managing. Saturday is squat day again.....I'll give an update on poundage increase then.

Okay, last nights inject was horrible. Hurt like a bitch and ached for about 2 hours after the shot! It was a delt shot so I suppose I may have hit something. In any event it's fine today so no harm done.
Today was squat day again but did things a little differently. I opened up with 305 x 6 and then did 265 for 23 reps. I got fewer reps obviously because of the heavy work that was done before hand.
My diet has been admittedly crappy lately as I"ve been in meetings most of the last couple of days making it nearly impossible to keep up with the meal schedule. Next week things get back to "normal".

Okay, I decided to up the testosterone to 750mgs per week. I know everyone will recommend against it but I haven't had any negative sides and was curious to see what difference it would make. We'll see.
Now up to 188 pounds bodyweight, that's a 14 pound gain so far....and the cycles not over!!! Now the true test will be post cycle to see how much I can actually hold on to. My PCT will consist of 3g of trib a day, Nolva, and I'm thinking of adding some phosphatidylserine in there to blunt cortisol a little. I couldn't manage to get any HCG so I decided I had better get some trib in the hopes that it will help kick the boys back into function.

190 pounds!! The gains are coming on strong again. Later this week I'll post how my training has changed so people can get an idea of how it was adjusted along the way.

Nice thread. Thanks for keeping us up to date.Originally Posted by Gethuge
Do you plan to step the dosage down the closer you get to coming off cycle or do you plan to come off "cold turkey?"
11-07-2004, 05:32 PM
I'm planning on going off cold turkey. My reasoning is that because i'm using long acting test cyp it is going to take a few weeks for the blood levels to come down.

I am glad to see some feedback using the DC training techniques. You mentioned that this protocol has been effective for you on and off cycle. Given that you are pretty much running a bread and butter AAS cycle, how much have the AAS increased your rate of strength progression? On a weekly basis, I can hit roughly a 10lb PR each week on squats and other heavy lifts consistently on M1T. Some lifts even more. Just wondering how much of an increase you have experienced in comparison compared to normal DC style work.
11-07-2004, 09:30 PM
I'm usually your typical "hardgainer". off cycle i can usually add 5 pounds a week to my core lifts when i'm making decent progress. Given that I'm also a long time lifter (about 9 years total off and on) this is great progress for me. On cycle i've been using 10 pound increments and usually getting extra reps as well. So the rate is a little more than double, on average.
11-07-2004, 09:55 PM
Great progress so far bro. I have the same problem as you when it comes to eating. I think we all have trouble stuffing down 3500 to 4000 cals a day, day in day out, week after long grueling week. If I ever step over to the dark side I'd like to try a similar cycle but with 400 mg EQ cause it's supposed to make ya wanna eat like horse (no pun intended).
11-14-2004, 01:38 AM
i've heard and read the same thing about EQ and I personally think it's the best steroid available as far as risk to benefit is concerned. On the other hand I can honestly say that once the test kicked in appetite was not an issue any more. I'm always hungry, just have to control what i eat and not pig out on everything in sight.

Had a bit of a problem. Rubber from the top of my vial fell into my solution contaminating it. Therefore I missed an inject last week waiting for a new vial to arrive.
I also have had a surge of side-effects. My back has an enormous breakout of small pimples all over. On the other side of the coin i've stopped taking nolva and haven't had any return gyno. It seems that d-bol causes gyno for me but test doesn't seem to aggrivate it....weird.

hah, i hate hitting nerves in my quads. i can see most of them branching off the femoral artery, but everynow and than i'll hit one that's deeper. it kind of feels like your pushing into a different material, very strange but i'm use to it now. the acne can be avoided with a medicated facewash. my favorite is clean and clear medicated. also, hit up the tanning bed 2x week and don't be afraid to get a little red. it always clears up my acne.
