    Test E or Test C? what do you prefer?


    For a first cycle Test at 500mg a week for 10-12 weeks is pretty standard, but why do most go with Test E? Why pick E over C? Curious cuz I might be able to get a hold of only some Test C.

    There is only one carbon molecule difference between the two...you wont even be able to tell the difference between them, so go with whatever is cheaper....and besides, if its coming from a UG, its probably enanthate anyhow.

    Like Holy said, you will not notice a difference between either of these compounds. Go with what you can get.

    Ditto. I find they are usually the same price, but with testosterone c, the ester is heavier. So test e, just cause you get a little more bang per buck.

    Some guys swear they do better on one than the other. I know a few guys that like cyp better because they say it gets their libido jacked up more than enan. I have heard that some report worse sides on one as opposed to the other. In the US, it seems that most docs prescribe cyp. Either way, most will not notice a difference, but some, whether it be perceived or not, notice a difference.

    I hear that most of the so-called differences between same estered steroids result from some of the gear being underdosed or just completely mislabeled. Test and Cyp shouldn't affect libido differently, or anything, at the same weekly dose.

    My buddy has been around AAS for years and swears shots of Cyp are painless while shots of Test E are far more painful ml to ml.

    Whether or not that's due to increased concentration per ml or not... who knows.

    its good and bad. good in that since the ester is shorter if things go sour (ie gyno) or other things happen you can clip the cycle short and it ends fast, unlike cyp or enan. the bad part is you are pinning every other day, so 7x in 2 weeks instead of 4x. so much more of a pain in the butt for a first time

    forsure, how long is an average prop cycle, like 8-10 weeks, or still 10-12 weeks like with e and c.

    probably 10-12 still. given that prop is usually more expensive, there really isnt a big plus to it, other than possibly to use it as a front load or kickstart for test e/c. so you could pin higher doses of it while starting the test e, and by week 3 or 4 discontinue the prop.

    8 weeks is perfect for a prop cycle. it takes maybe a week to kick-in instead of waiting 4-5-6 weeks for enan or cyp to kick-in

    Thats actually the opposite. I'd say his source just doesnt brew them the same. The biggest issue with cyp is that its harder to suspend in your brew (which is why you will see it brewed at 200mg/ml vs 250mg/ml like eth). It also crashes easier both in storage and potentially in depot. Having said that I'd still buy whatever is cheaper.

    yeah, but the enan/cyp also is still operating for 2-3 weeks after you stop injections Still an 8 week prop should be good enough for some nice gains, and not have to worry about hcg

    Or the prop will be so painful your training will be limited in the first two weeks thus limiting gains. Just another thought.

    I guess i'm lucky, my prop feels like enanthate, neither cause any pain.

    The only pain i got was the first time i shot enanthate in my quads, got a massive tight spot that felt like my muscle was half cramped-up. After the first shot, all the muscles got real used to it, never been pain since.

    Prop is fine for a first cycle, get you to appreciate pinning

    Might I ask why?

    If an AI is run throughout either cycle (Test E/C or Prop) is there much difference?

    Just curious.

    Haha! Glad I could help. Do you mean your Prop is 50mg/ml and you use 2 ml per injection?

    I could see why that would be painless as it's a mild concentration compared to our 100mg/ml standard.

    I like the less bloat, and the fact that i don't need to run an AI(or very, low dose). I like the shorter lead/clear time.. Also for some reason i don't break out AT ALL on prop, yet on Ent, every time i break out like crazy, which is a BIG plus for me for prop. Maybe the hormonal swings? It just treats me better.

    I guess we all have our preference

    I guess we all have our preference
    Damn! You guys have me reconsidering my first run now.

    Are the gains from Prop just as easy to maintain since they come faster and in a short period of time?

    Say a 8 week Prop run vs. a 12 week Test E run?

    Thanks.
