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.
