I am in the start of my 6th week of one injection a week of 500 mg testosterone enanthate. I am 5í7Ē and 200 when started and am only about 203 right now. It seems odd in 6 weeks Iíve gained 3 pounds which is plenty easy to do with diet. My strength has gone up more than usual, but this can be all a mental game. I know this is a slow acting steroid, but what I expected was to start seeing results around the 4th week mark. I am 20 years old and will be turning 21 very, very soon. I know I am going to hear about starting at a young age but when it comes down to it, Iíve been training 4 years with 3 years of perfect diet because I didnít really eat well when I first started. But thatís irrelevant because Iíve started and will continue to finish. So whatís up, is this too little of a dose? Should I pick up another bottle and run it a little longer? Also this shouldnít play any part in it but I am taking arimidex at .5 mg every 3 days, because I am prone to gyno. Even with that I should still be growing though.

test e took forever to kickin for me. but u should be feeling/seeing something by now. ever think that u were losing fat while gaining muscle? that might explain the lack of "weight" gain. just give it time, are u doing a 10 or 12 week cycle?

Enan is a slower ester, obviously, but by the 6th week you should be rolling pretty well. I would have recommended you do biweekly injects instead of one though. 500mgs is plenty, even for someone who has done repeated cycles...Something in the equation isnt right though...DIET+WORKOUTS+ANABOLI CS= GOOD GAINS

do you have any of the other normal side effects? acne, shrinkage etc at this stage in the cycle i'd begin to question if it's legit. you said your diet is perfect how many calories a day are you getting in exactly and what is the makeup of those calories. How many times a day are you eating are you keeping strict track

Just so we know my diet and workouts are dialed. I train hard and have sufficent rest between muscle groups. I am on a high carb/high protein/low fat diet. My carbs are from only rice and other complex carbs. Protein is mainly chicken (3 breasts a day) steaks, protein shakes (post workout, first thing in morning) and eggs or fish. I turn 21 on cycle in 5 days so I'm still gona post here because regardless of age, people should be able to talk about cycles so they can avoid hazardous things and to avoid harsh side effects and provide health cycles.

Thats why most people opt to kickstart it with an oral. It takes at least 6 weeks to notice anything really. I would run it at least 10 weeks, but I have done 15 weekers with no problems. I strongly suggest doing 2 shots of 250mg a week...like every monday, thursday or some sh*t, to help keep levels more stable. Or even add an oral in weeks 8,9,10 or something. Something like havoc at a low dose.

Some people may say the arimidex is preventing gains, but it will just reduce bloat and being prone to gyno I did not want teh surgery again because I already had it naturally on one side. So I might be hold less water than normal but I don't mind that, regardless I should still be getting bigger.

I dont' know man at 500 above mainteance and no shrinkage at week 6 I would really start to question if the gear is legit. because honestly you got everything else right on
