Hi guys this is my first post, always reading but never posted.
I started a 10 week test Enanthate cycle 7 weeks ago and i have no gains...just sides .
I'm 5'10, 175lb and this is my first cycle. I have been training 4 years now and put on 30lb naturally in that time i was an extreme ectomorph with a super high metabolism.
Anyway back to the cycle, me and my cousin have been shooting test e 200mg twice a week, i know its a little low but i wanted to play it safe as its my first cycle. however i have actually lost a couple of lbs but my cousin has piled on 20lbs! We worked out our calorie intake each day, he gets around 1000 with no protein intake, and i'm eating 4000 with around 250g of protein a day.
I know eating more would help but i only work part time and i cant really afford it so i get most my calories from 3 mass gaining shakes a day.
Im upping the dose to 600mg for the last 3 weeks, i dont really want to do this as i feel im just wasting my money, i just want to pct my way out of this one.
My strength has gone up and the pumps in the gym are better(i work out super intense dorian yates style, with only a few exercises and very strict form). But i have very oily skin(not had zits like this since school), and constant boners. no water retention and no weight gain?
Anyway any help from more experienced guys would really help me out.
sorry about the long post i just wanted you to have all the info so i dont get flamed too bad .
I find food to be cheaper than mass gainer shakes. Just what I have found. It does sound like you have bunk gear, or think you are pinning 200mg and it is really underdosed... Post a pic of the bottle. How is the PIP?
I am on here for entertainment and educational purposes only.Recipe for BBing success...Diet =80%
Routine =15% Gear/AAS =5% This = Success.
I doubt your cousing is only getting 1000 calories and no protein. What is he eating that has zero protein? Is the 20lbs fat? You need to eat real food gainer shakes have there place to supplement your meals, not to be your only source for protein. Do some research on diets and timing of your meals.
I kid you not, he doesnt even drink protein shakes... its crazy, he has only been training for around a year and doesnt really have a clue, i tried to stop him, but i couldnt persuade him from coming on with me. i know i understand that food is so much better than supplements.
were actually drawing from the same vial, with different needles of course, i just dont understand it, i did a few years research before this so i was expecting the sort of gains he has made.
the source is also very reputable i know guys go to him all the time and are huge in a couple of months.
I was just wondering if its anything to do with genetics...certain gear not having the same effect on different people at the same dosages?
I cant get a picture right now but i can tomorrow...am i allowed to say the name of the lab?
I know how to eat i eat every 2-3 hours without fail, eggs in the morning, tuna at lunch and some other meat in the evening, with mass gainers 3 times a day inbetween this, he did only weigh around 140lb to start with and it does seem to be alot of water retention, but surely that would mean the test isn't bunk?
