    Test E cycle Vs. Test Deca cycle


    I just received enough Test E to do a 12 week cycle of 500 mg/week. And from what I have read that seems to be a pretty basic starter cycle for a newb to AAS. However, I have read that adding Deca to the mix makes for a great cycle also. My question; How much will my cycle improve if I add Deca? For those that have done both the Test E cycle by itself and for those that have done Test/Deca, how did the Deca make the cycle better?

    Thanks

    Test only is a great first cycle, but test/deca is a bread and butter cycle for bulking. Adding deca will definitely increase your on-cycle gains.

    A test deca cycle is a great cycle. Say 330 deca 400-500 test works really well. From personal experience 20 lbs can be added with ease. Deca also helps keep your joints healthy and ease the pain associated with the increase in muscle size and strength.

    first cycle go test only ... if you use test and deca you won't know which to attribute gains/sides to

    with proper diet and training you'll grow plenty on just test

    Thanks for the replies, but Im no longer interested in doing this cycle. When I posted it in July of 05, I was giving it serious consideration, but decided against it. Im just sticking with OTC products.
    Thanks.

    In what regard?

    BEGINNER:

    One compound at a time...fully understand how your body reacts to that compound before piling on more compounds.

    INTERMEDIATE:

    Test at a ratio of 2:1 to Deca for a long bulk will work well. Deca supresses Test and sides must be dealt with...more complicated to deal with sides some of which can continue for several months post cycle.

    ADVANCED:

    Test/Deca/EQ can be a really nice bulk cycle. Low dose T3 (25mg) works well w/ this cycle as well as other bulk cycles.

    My 2 cents

    that pretty much covers it save the deca for when you would need it you will see real good gains off just test...
