    Losing strength - Need advice


    Im on my 5th week of cycle of 400mg test e 1-12 weeks, epistane first four weeks...... I recently stopped taking Epi and my lifts are down a few reps each, diet and rest are in check, only thing i can think is my test is fake ?? Or is this a normal thing to happen, thanks for any help.

    This sounds normal. Epi can give wonderful gains in strength. So to stop taking it, I suspect you'd lose a little bit. You might consider upping your dose of Test to 500mg. I've read that a decent amount of people prefer 500mg. I've never taken it, so take that with a grain of salt. Just telling ya what I've read that others have posted.

    Well Epi (and most all orals) produce much quicker gains than injectables. So naturally, oral gains are much more difficult to maintain. From what I understand, injectables have an ester (which can vary in length) that allows for a gradual release in the body. You should continue to see results from your Test, they'll just be much more steady.

    I had the same problem. Kickstarted my test e cycle with SD-1 superdrol and after a week strength went through the roof and I started to pack on size. When I stopped the SD-1s strength dropped a bit. For example was benching 115kg for 8 reps, that dropped to 8 at 110kg. My size didn't drop tho and strength crept back up after a while. Once I stopped the oral my gains became a lot more steady but am still happy with how my cycle is going. I wouldn't worry about it.

    It took me close to 5 weeks to really see my strength going up, and that is with around 750 mg of test E. After week 5 seems like everytime I hit the plates I add weight and reps.

    Not trying to sound like an Ass but.....

    After week 5 if you do not notice a strength increase your stuff could be really underdosed or fake.
    Either way I would toss it. If you aint getting big who knows what the hell your shooting.

    Good luck and
    Keep us updated bro.
