I'm on my fifth cycle of 1-test and I'm missing the AMAZING pump that I got with my first cycle. Any ideas on what I can do?
My first cycle was with ethergels and it was amazing. My muscles felt like they were going to explode an hour after taking an ethergel because they were so pumped (no exageration). Then when I worked out, I felt like Arnold Schwartzenager with even more pump and had incredible strength. The only side-effect was lethargy - I felt like going to sleep at 8pm every night. I gained 14 pounds in three weeks (174 to 188 lbs, 6', 38yrs). The only other supps I used was Cell-Tech creatine and a high protein meal replacement.
My second cycle was San T-100 powder in a cap and I had ZERO results.
My third cycle was ethergels again, but this time I only gained a few pounds in three weeks. The only thing I changed was taking creatine monohydrate instead of a mix and pure whey protein instead of a high protein meal replacement.
My fourth cycle was the T-1 Pro transdermal and I gained a few pounds, but still no amazing pump.
I'm now on my fifth cycle and using T-1 Pro, but I want the pump and strength gains which I got from my first cycle. I've tried one, two, and four squirts per day. With the pump and strengh I had on that first cycle, I was able to have an incredible workout which led to fantastic gains.
Do you think it has to do with:
- body adjusts to 1-test and doesn't respond the same way after multiple cycles?
- the combination of a good creatine and the 1-test made the difference?
- was there impurities (real steroids) in the first batch of ethergels?
- what else?
