    How about an update?

    Finally a look at my 40day cycle

    I actually just got done running the exact cycle again and I'm now almost 2 weeks into PCT. I'll post more about that later but for right now take a look at my last 40 days cycle and full results through PCT. later J

    This is great stuff. I'm looking to do my first cycle this winter. Getting my hands on some eq, that's all I have just yet. Not sure if I can fit that into a short cycle though, off the top of my head. Need to do some more research.

    One could certainly use EQ in a short cycle but you would want to use boldenone base or prop.

    I think you mean Jminis. His log is in the cycle section. The amount of any drug used will be dependent on a few factors.

    My dosages changed every 8days or so.
    TB started at approx 120mg/day and was cycled down to 50mg/day
    Bold Base started at 100mg/day went up to 120mg/day and back down to approx 50mg/day
    Winny started at 25mg/day and ended at 75mg/day.

    Read about esters. "Base" is simply the hormone without an ester attached.
    These are estimates to account for ester weight.
    suspension(base) : 100%
    Propionate : 79%
    Phenylpropionate : 66%
    Isocaproate : 71%
    enanthate : 69%
    Cypionate : 67%
    Undecanoate : 61%

    Day 2 of the bold prop. only 1/2cc (50mg) each day. Pretty sore, but no worse than a prop/tren mix. And I have a slight touch of prop flu today, but I haven't gotten enough rest, so that could be it as well.

    I see. So test enanth would be a bad choice for a 5wk cycle?

    Yes. Test suspension or prop would be desired.

    OK, I'm having trouble telling if this is base, prop, etc. It's all in Spanish. Fort Dodge brand eq, 50mg/ml. :-/

    Fort Dodge EQ has undecylenate ester. This is not ideal for a short cycle.

    As it turns out, there's only ~6.5wks worth is available to me. Will this be a waste of time? Should I just wait until more is available? Would be stacked w/ test prop most likely. Is a 6wk test enanthate / eq cycle worth doing?

    Edit: Also, any idea about British Dragon eq?

    You have to decide if it is worth your time, money, and body. This entire thread is about short cycles and using the drugs that will have the best advantage over the course of a short period of time. So do you think test enanthate is a good idea?

    British Dragon products are good.

    Pretty sweet there jminis. Long cycles definately aren't for everyone and in particular I could see them being an issue with the older guys.

    To avoid the mid cycle stall, I am running my current cycle in two phases... I put on almost 40lbs in the first five weeks with about 15lbs fat gain, and switched gears when the tren e fully kicked in. Now at just over 7 weeks in I've shed the 15lbs of fat that I picked up while on dbol, and I have another 4 weeks or so of tren to cut on before I have to normalize my diet in preparation for pct. Rock hard and vascular 265 here I come

    I can't stress the important of swale's hcg protocol enough btw, the boys are running at full size at this point. We'll see how the recovery is - I've got my fingers crossed.

    Damn bro that's a lot of weight to put on. Good luck with the rest of your cycle and keep us informed on how everything goes. And yes swales protocol for longer cycles is important and keep the nutz happy.

    Generally speaking, how long of a cycle would warrant the use of HCG? In almost all of the "sample cycles" I see clomid + nolva only. But some articles I read say that HCG is a "necessary part of any cycle".

    Not every cycle. You could and it def wouldn't hurt but anything under 6 weeks I think your fine without it. Even 8 I think would be cool but you'd be pushin it and it would depend on what your running. Things like deca, tren, m1t, ect... in a 8 weeker and I would run HCG. It's cheap and makes recovery easier.

    I see. This would be test+eq for approx. 8wks, with dbol for the first 3-4wks. We'll look at HCG.

    Gained 10, kept 8. That was with the bold prop making me too sick to eat properly. Already did my PCT, and started back up.
    Suspension + prop/tren + dbol + 4OHT Cyp (AI properties)
    transitioning to
    NPP + Winny or Oral Turinabol

    It is unfortunate that bold prop seems to have such nasty effects. It it such a tempting drug.

    don't mean to butt into ya'lls conversation, but bold prop didn't do any damage to me. no bad side effects. guess it depends on the person.

    I think the big issue was pain at the injection site. Beelze did you not experience any? I know most said the pain was ridiculous

    Bold prop seems to be disliked by most, but what about bold acetate? Anyone tried it in short cycles?

    Jminis I would like ur opinion on this...what do u think about a 5-6 weeker using transdermal test base and tren base...not quite sure yet on the dosages but this sounds interesting and I like this idea better than longer cycles.

    This combo will work well. I would aim for 75-100mg of test daily and 35-60mg tren daily.
