My source claims there is no real difference between deca and EQ.

I just noticed in TwisT sticky on advanced cycles, there is a significant difference in the dosages of deca vs EQ in the two cycles. Is EQ not as potent as deca or is there a different reason to run EQ at 800mg for lean gains?

My last cycle when I gained close to 18lb of lean mass I took 400mg of deca a week and 500mg of test, however i bloated up a bit. I wanted to get leaner gains since I had already cut before this cycle so it was decided to do 400mg of Eq a week. did I waste this cycle doing too low a dose? I didn't gain much this cycle and diet and training were relatively the same as before.

Eq for most, not all, needs to be run at 600mg with later dosage increases to 800-1000+. 16 weeks is also recommended.

Deca and EQ are very different as eq is much drier and milder with few side effects and increases in vascularity and hunger. Deca is a very wet compound and needs prolactin control. Most gain significant weight and experience mild to heavy bloating. People run test much higher than deca to avoid erectile dysfunction.

Yeah I did notice a lot of vascularity on this last cycle, just no sizable gains. Looks like I need to rethink my strategy a bit.

Also noticed much more joint discomfort with eq.

Can you take deca and eq together?

If you're an ectomorph, Deca is made for guys like you!!!I'm an endo-meso bodytype and i grow like weed,but deca makes me look like a balloon,i hate it,the only 19-Nor i will ever mess with is tren!Did run Eq for almost a year straight,other than a slight bp increase,had no sides at all,slow but lean gains are to be expected with that compound!!!

I'm an endo-meso too. So maybe I should forget DECA. I was trying to run it in for my joints, but I loved the vascularity I got off EQ and tren - just had more joint pain.

Deca hands down is the superior compound for almost anybody. It presents a positive effect on joints. That should be a HUGE determining factor, not only for those with joint issues, but for those wishing to avoid joint issues.

I won't claim to be an expert, but in my opinion deca is best used for joint health. I was softer and more watery on test/deca than test/dbol even with a pretty limited dosage of deca. Gains were not even on par, in strength or weight gain. I also experienced the only really troubling side affect with deca, which was some minor light headedness and chest pain. I can't say exactly the cause but I attribute it more to the deca than anything. In the positives my joints really did feel great. I think just about all of us have some minor joint aches, but my knees and elbows especially felt 110% on deca.

To be fair I have to include I ran the test/deca cycle only about 6 weeks after the first so that may have interfered with the results, but I would much rather run extra test and an oral than use deca again. I've also used superdrol which recomped me like a mofo and I felt hard as a rock, with just 250mg test E and 20mg SD every day for 4 weeks. The over the counter supps often get discounted but I think even the most experienced AAS user would be very impressed by either pheraplex or superdrol ;)
