First cycle - Test E results!

46 posts in this topic

Posted

Stats before : 86kg - 6ft - 22 years old - 12 % bf

after : 92kg - '' - '' - unchanged bf , maybe abit lower .

First off , I'm still finishing off my cycle , just wanted to post my progress so far for others to know how my first experience pinning was.

I'm on my 10th week of running Test 500mg/week , still got 1 left and then 2 weeks after that last injection I wil begin my PCT of nolvadex 40/40/20/20 .

First impressions are great , I did pin double for my 4th week since I had to attend a funeral, so that meant for 2 weeks I pinned 1g of test e , Some people told me I would die .. I only got a small rash on my ass , which was just due to my body getting used to a high dose of test e, nothing major .

As for gyno , I noticed my nipples being sensitives at the beginning of my cycle , then it dissapeared at around 5-6th week , once again I think it just takes the body a while to get used to this new substance! No acne at all , maybe abit at the beginning of the cycle, but who really cares about a few spots??

One thing which I did notice is a whole lot of hair growth! for the first time I had a beared haha , and a belly as hairy as a gorilla D: . but this I found to be quite fun and positive :) .

I did not have this ''god'' complexe and felt '' invinsible'', the only thing I got from this experience is that you're much more focused in and out the gym . My nutrition was solid and still is .

The weird thing is I didn't get really any strength gains whatsoever, My deadlift only went up about 5-10 kg's , but I could have done that natty , so that was weird , and as for intensity , my workouts were already quite intensive, but there are some moments at th beginnning of my cycle were I felt I was really on , but I think this is just placebo..

and really all the quick weight gain happened from week 3-6 , but what I did notice after week 6 is that my muscles started to mature more , giving the muscle some more tone .

and I have NO bloat , just when I drink heavy amounts of water , but I **** it all out fairly quickly .

my weight right now is an estimate , as I put on about 2 kilos during the day from eating and water , but I usualle wake up at 91-92 kg.

So all in all , it wasn't one of those OMFG I GAINED 25 POUNDS cycles , but for what its worth I learned quite abit about how my body reacts to this stuff , and I have had no sides , I will be going crazy on my pct trying to keep all the gains I wrked so hard for , so I can't tell you how I will react during my pct , but my muscles dont seem to hold much water , so with a solid meal plan and keeping my workouts strong I don't really fear it that much .

In the next few months I will be trying some deca+test!

Sorry for the long post! feel free to ask me questions! and no I won't take pics! easy boys ;D

I am disappointed to read that you didn't notice any strength increases, that's what I was looking for tbh, is this common amongst Test only cycles?

I put on 5kg on a 7 week Anavar only cycle... so I am not impressed with your weight gain in comparison and I start my Test E cycle tomorrow *excited*

As you're not taking photos, did you take bicep/chest/leg measurements?

Good motivation for me, getting excited about my first cycle!

What did you run as an AI? did you use HCG? pct only nolva?

Interesting. My weight is only up about half a stone, am eating well and very little water retention I think. Week 3, dbol kickstart (4 weeks) and test E (10 weeks). Strength is up a lot already but I can attribute this to the dbol I think. A good 20kg+ added on deadlifts, every exercise is up a few kgs. Wonder why your strength didn't go up? I'm pretty excited about the test results if this is how I responded to dbol.

the thing about deadlifts is that you can gain a great deal of strentgh just from practising it properly, but as far as my training goes I train for size , not for strentgh, still I have read loads of posts of people telling me how they're strentgh gains are thew the roof, but I didn't mind that much , I had a blast on cycle and will be definitely be running it again.

I guess we all react differently to it , and it takes some time to hit you so I wouldn't call it fake if u dont see anything till week 3 or 4 , as it seems at this dose I can only put on so much mass , but I was very pleased with this simple Test e Cycle! Gonna be stacking in the future .

As for what it really does , I wouldn't expect anything Crazy , I kinda thought I would blow up cause you're on the gear , I'm not holding much water and got no sides and I'm not using any AI .

My friend who is stacking right now really confirms to me that you'll have to stack to see a shocking difference , but all my friends and personal trainers at the gym are accusing me of taking steroids , since whats so great is that you keep gaining and gaining without plateau'ing for like 5 solid kg's , which is great!!

But at 500mg/week test e , it depends where u start off at , I alreadt weighed iin at 86kg which isn't bad , so obviously someone weighing in at 70kg could gain a great deal more , I still think it was a great cycle and will be training hard to keep the gains!

Thank god for that sweet nectar of the gods :]

I know what you mean mate if your keeping reps and intensity high its not easy to gain huge amounts of strength because of the amount of work your doing. The main thing is you noticed changes and now you know how your body reacts and how far you can push it!

Well played

This is why you didn't gain much size then. The stronger you get the bigger you get, simples.

Rubbish, i gained 18 lbs on my first cycle (dbol only) and kept 12 lbs of that.

If training was intense as you say, it sounds like diet may have let you down. From food comes energy, from energy comes strength. Thats the way i look at it, if i have a poor day diet wise i struggle in the gym, as energy and motivation is at rock bottom.

Is it as simple as that? It's rep ranges that can make the difference in what you achieve, according to what I read here: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/hale6.htm Powerlifters VS Bodybuilders.

Yes, it's not rocket science. I don't see what your problem is with my simple statement. And of course rep ranges make a difference, at 51 yrs old i'm not a bloody novice.

Your attitude stinks, Mars. You know your stuff, but your arrogant posts are not appreciated. You're a moderator here, you should be a shining example to the rest of us of how to talk to each other.

Stop talking bollox and challenging everything i post then. If you don't know the very basic of basics (progressive resistance) then your the one with the problem.

I don't suffer fools gladly, so i'll take whatever attitude i see fit. If you have a problem with that find another forum.

I'm not going to argue with you Mars, I've seen you ban people on a whim for expressing their opinions on here before. My initial post was to start a discussion, the point of a forum I thought.

Not sucking up to a mod here, but it's refreshing to see someone openly voice their opinion about a member rather than throw around thinly veiled insults which I see way too much on here.

And yet I get a slap on the wrist. From mods the other day for calling a guy an idiot, who clearly was and after a personal attack on my opinion on something hardly a over reaction on my part, guess you need to be a mod to speak your mind on here then

As neither of you know the full story and are just baseing your opinions on a single post i would suggest it's best to keep your opinions to yourself. Iv'e always been impartial and unless i know exactly what's been happening on both sides i find the best course of action is to keep my mouth shut and my nose out of other peoples business.

@ Another level, i'm pleased to see someone gets it, thanks.

I won't bother continuing,I was under the impression if you post on an open forum then other people can freely comment,evidently it's only acceptable to comment as long as meets your approval.Someone has clearly p!ssed on your cornflakes so i'll drop it.

With that said, surely strength training cant be as effective with the higher reps required for hypertrophy? It would be nice to get your opinion on this subject
