This is sort of a 2-part question/thread.
First part of my question is in regards to supposed loss of oil in syringes. Is this due entirely to the test being measured improperly, where some of the oil is stuck in the blue part of the needle, or does it have to do with something else--small traces of oil left in the vials/syringes after they are sucked dry? Can one make use of nearly all of the oil they have by allowing the air bubble in their syringe after aspirating to float to the top (and be the last thing that is pushed back into the muscle), or is oil loss just part in parcel with doing these injections? I am asking this because I have just enough for 2 12-week cycles @ 450mg/week. I hear of people losing 1.5 to 2 cc's per 10ml vial. Now, this is while measuring improperly. Assuming this miscalculation is corrected, how much oil should I expect to get from the 10ml vial?
Secondly, I am considering running either one Test E cycle @ 600mg/week for 16 weeks, or 2 separate cycles (one a year from now) @ 450mg/ week for 12 weeks each. I have run test cycles sporadically in the past dosing 500mg/week and 600mg/week. I rarely use aas and my receptors are currently fresh, have gained a lot of weight in the past and have now dropped down very close to baseline, having done lots of cardio almost daily for the last 4 years or so. I would like to bulk up a little again. In the event that I choose to do 2 cycles, I would like to gain 15lbs of lean body mass this summer. I am unsure of my goals for next year's cycle though they would likely be similar if I am unsuccessful at making adequate gains this year or retaining the weight gain if I do accomplish my goal. Which way would you go? Would I see far better gains from a 16-week cycle @ 600mg/week compared to just one of the shorter 450mg/week? Again, I have no idea what I will want to do a year from now, but the idea is if I can make similar gains with either 450mg/12 weeks or 600mg/16 weeks, it would be nice to have the cycle there no matter what.
Sorry for the long winded thread. I took a little too much 1,3 dimeth today.
