    First Cycle Help


    I know everyone says not to run Deca only cycles, but I have a bro who is a veteran and suggests a deca-only cycle for a first-cycle; he's going to have me on 200mg a week for 8-weeks - might do a 2 week front-load. By keeping the dose low(200mg a week) I shouldn't have to worry about side effects right. I want to get some clean long-term gains. Also with a low-dose safe cycle like this I shouldn't need anything else for post-cycle either right.

    Anyway, I'm going to do one inject per week of 1cc at 200mg per ml. I know about stuff like "deca-****" but at 200mg per week that shouldn't be a problem right? Deca is said to be one of the, if not, the safest steroids so why isn't it suggested as a first cycle, why is everyone stuck on testosterone-only for their first - testosterone has some nasty sides and you don't keep any of the gains. Anyway, am I wrong about all of this? Seems to make sense, I already have the deca and should be set to go right? Thanks for any replies guys.

    well i see a couple thing i would change first off 200mg a week is low would run 400mg a week and only 8 weeks it doesnt kick in till around week 6-7 so you will have only a week or to of gains... pointless if u ask me... and testosterone only cycle u would gain more and if you do a good pct u should keep almost all your gains... bumb for mor info though.....

    Thanks for the posts so far.

    I can see why Test-only or with, might be better than deca-only, but given the low-dose and duration - what is really wrong with deca-only; seems to be an ideal way if one is only looking for mild maintainable gains for a first cycle and hit the "harder stuff" later, right? I shouldn't need anything other that the deca shots with such a low dose and short duration, I have heard that you need up to 1000mg before sides become a concern and being that deca only converts to estrogen at a rate of 20% it seems that I should be good, especially with only 200mg.

    Thanks again for all the replies.

    I've never used deca before but I'm quite sure you need to do PCT a couple weeks after youre last injection even if it only run at 200mgs.

While I was on I was "strong like wood" and felt the effects in the 3rd week; increased libido, sense of well being and intensity in the gym was up. No PCT afterwards was prob the worst of it all, terrible crash. Save your Deca and run a Test e cycle @500 a week for 10 weeks w/ PCT. That is your safest first cycle.
