Just wanted to provide an update on my cycle for those of you who are interested.
Summary of current cycle: 250mg Test E and 500mg Boldenone, pin every 4 days, currently on my 12th week.
I have changed my workouts from strength training to high rep and high intensity training, tabata training, and calisthenics (as well as cardio, mainly from jump-rope, burpees, and mountain climbers).
My results have been phenomenal. I have dropped almost 10 lbs in fat and/or water and retained an awesome muscular shape (I'm down to 181.5lbs right now). My girlfriend and friends keep telling me how ripped I look.
I haven't been too strict with my diet because I need the energy, I'm clearly not eating to drop ridiculous amounts of body fat as I do have quite a bit of carbs and dietary fat on a daily basis (and **** tons of ice cream on the weekends) but in general I eat very clean:
Breakfast: Protein shake with banana and almond milk, oatmeal, and green tea.
Snack: egg sandwich with chorizo on english muffin or wheat wrap
Lunch: White rice, black beans, steak or chicken, avocado, garden salad on the side
Snack: protein shake
Snack: turkey and cheese on whole wheat
Dinner: Rice with beef, two boiled eggs, and asparagus
Snack: protein shake
I have to say that the first few weeks on boldenone were lackluster. I thought I had some bunk oil or some low-grade test. Didn't experience any strength gains, no anxiety, no increased blood pressure, and no appetite. But since everything I read said it was a long-term cycle with slow results, I stuck with it anyway.
IT wasn't until about week 8 that I started to realize subtle differences. Appetite started to go up and I thought I started to see more definition around my chest and shoulders.
It's evident to me now at week 12 that this is a great stack if you want to drop the water and fat weight from a previous bulking cycle while retaining a nice physique. My muscle size doesn't seem to have changed, if anything I actually look a little big bigger now that I'm more defined and shaped. I have to say though, it's sort of disappointing to see the strength go away, but it's very cool to look really lean and hard (and personally, I find girls are liking this a lot better than my bigger self, I get many more compliments).
I plan on sticking with this cycle for at least another 8-12 weeks to see what I get out of it. Any comments or question, fire 'em away.

Interesting, though I'd prob choose bold cyp over equipoise

These are different steroids for different purposes
If muscular gain is what you want, increase the testosterone. After a while, normally 500-750mg you'll find increasing the dose just increases acne and bloat ;D. At that point you lower the dose and add in nandrolone instead, this will be best for muscular gains
If you already have the size, then equipoise is the logical choice. Now of course you can dose the equipoise very high and you get mutation. But for the cost, you're better off with other hormones. As you're "blasting" I assume you're after muscular gains. I'd up the test to 500 and add in dianabol. Then after the dbol up test to 750 for a few months. 500 test + 40mg dbol or 750mg of test will give massive gains compared to 250mg of test and 500 equipoise. The comparison isn't even close

Are you trying to increase his side effects?
Bold is testosterone with a 1-ene added on the structure.
This changes the properties slightly, making it a less androgenic more anabolic compound, and decreases its ability to aromatize.
If you want to get down to the science of it, it is a bit stupid to stack test, bold, dbol, as they are all very similar in structure to each other.
This isn't saying you won't get more gains and sides from it, you upping the amount of androgens in your system, its saying why bother when its working great according to op.

Hey Jbry -- thanks for the balanced counter argument. I am happy with the leaning out I have experienced -- my agility, definition, and endurance have increased from when I was at the 190s lbs (weighed in at 179 last night).
To be fair to Alex, one of the reasons I decided to lean out is because I had hit a plateau on growing at around 193-195, partially due to an injury (I have since recovered). My weight was coming on as I was eating like a horse, but my strength wasn't rising proportionately, I pushed too hard, and out came the shoulder.
I'm fairly new to cycling -- this is my 4th cycle, and I have taken a slow approach to understand how substances affect my body. The most I have really done on any cycle is 500mg of test, and that brought me to the 190lbs range.
Another reason I chose Test and Eq was because this combination seemed easy on the hairline. I don't think I'm losing hair (I lose some in the shower, I'm guessing everyone does) but I'm weary of going with a substance that straight up speeds up hair loss. At the same time, I've been on test for almost a year straight and I don't think I'm going bald (maybe this means I'm safe?).
Are there any tips that you can provide or stacks that you recommend to help me reach the next level, bulk wise? I'm willing to try almost anything as long as I have enough information -- give me your tips and I'll research the rest. I have been very tempted to run a Test E + Tren E cycle, but friends who have done this have advised me against it. They have literally told me that tren makes their pen1s small (and one of them supposedly didn't recover his size even after 2 years of not doing Tren).
To alex's point, I have heard that Dbol is a great kicker with test; I had never come across anyone who didn't like that mix.

Who are these friends saying trens making their penis small? Are they rock munchers? What the f?! Been on for 3 weeks and my members damn near perma-wood from caber and test. Definitely has not shrunk one bit.

So can you tell me about your experience with Tren? What dose, what are you running it with, how long, progress, etc? I'd appreciate the insight bud!

Ive ran Test, DECA, EQ and Dbol all at once. Blew me up and sides weren't bad. Just a little water from the Dbol.. By far easier to deal with than Tren sides.

I ran 500mg Sustanon (test blend), 250mg DECA, 250mg EQ weekly and 50mg Dbol daily. I had arimidex on hand. The only sides I noticed were a slight water retention from the Dbol and oily skin which is pretty much me on any cycle. I dont do Dbol anymore though because for me it seemed to make me angry.. All the time. I wanted to kick baby seals.

As far as dbol, I've used tons of it. Great feel good drug. No anger issues. Just blood pressure from the water bloat. Strength is good. There's a nice overall sense of well being I get with it.

Any hairline issues at this dose?
01-22-2014, 10:57 AM
Good luck avoiding trendagestion and any dose..

It gives me indigestion real bad. Especially when running 500+mg a week. Tums become your friend!

As far as cough. I am speaking from enanth only, it's non existing really.

To be honest, if the hair has the DHT receptors, you're screwed. It will fall out or it won't all you can do is delay it haha, even natural test levels will make it fall out
Test, nandrolone, dbol are going to be your top 3 hormones for gaining weight. Tren is OK, but the other 3 will jsut do it better. Lots of people want to try out tren, for good reason haha, but it's not really needed. You ended up taking 250/500 right? I think replacing the boldenone with nandrolone would be very good. Pretty simple really, there are no magical combinations. Add in dianabol when you need it.
If you're prone to progestin sides, you can either reduce the dose of the test to minimise throwing estrogen and DHT into the mix as well or lower the nandrolone replacing it with testosterone or dianabol. Maybe start at 250 of both, see what half a gram total does for you with some orals over 8 weeks. Then take the orals out and up the nandrolone, see what that does

dht receptors don't exist, however androgen receptors all over the body, including the scalp do exist.
