I ran an epistrong cycle for 6 weeks at 30/45/45/60/60/75 and it was incredible. LBM gains like crazy, huge pumps in gym. My arms looked like 4x4 pieces of wood.
Definitely had a few back pump issues - esp. when I would attend a show or concert in Austin and be standing for 4+hrs. Lethargy was an issue at 45mg, but went away at 60. 75 at the last week caused some acne issues to flare up also. Also, had to dose fishoil at 15g's daily (gets expensive), but i had to keep going up on the dose bc my joints were like an 80 yo man. If I misse fishoil ONE DAY I would feel it the next day in the gym as I always start with ~20-30min stretching/phys therapy stuff bc of old injuries. Be extremely, extremely diligent with joint protection and IMO you can run it REALLY high.
Someone on here ran it 75 all 6 weeks... not sure on his results or if he experienced the joint discomfort.
Currently on hdrol at 100mg and fishoil has been kept at 8-10g ED and no issues. I feel like I could lower it a bit, honestly, but I am able to do squats again, so gonna keep it nice n high.
If you're disciplined with not drinking at all and taking cycle assist you can probably do it, but 8 weeks is gonna do a number on your joints, brotha. I feel the most important thing to worry about is overtraining bc you're so strong at the 6, 7, 8 wk mark that the tendons and ligaments can't keep up with the growth of the muscles and a catastrophic joint injury could occur - happened to me 2 wks after a 6 week epi cycle when I had 70's over my head in a seated military press... result: slap tear and bankart leision in my left shoulder (fully recovered now). It took a good 12wks of INTENSE pt to get the shoulder back to operational status. I refused surgery and just worked through it... it was frustrating, but I have some UN-FU(KING-REAL chiro and PT's working with me pretty much constantly.
PCT wasn't rough either. Standard dosing with Torem had my nuts HURTING from hanging so low after 3 weeks... Ran derm on cycle and FORMA in pct.
Consider a SARM in PCT as they are wet and will help with joint, ligament and tendon problems - someone correct me if this is incorrect.
