    Sustanon 250 only cycle - no results

    Hi all,

    I am on my first cycle and I am taking only Sustanon 250 (twice a week - Mon/Thu - 500mg a week).

    I am at the end of my 4th week and still have not seen great results only that I went from 58Kg (127lbs) to 61Kg (134lbs). Which is not really great.
    People say one should see massive results from week 3, but where is it???

    I have been eating a lot, having a balanced diet with proper carbs/protein (more than usual) and still, apart from some definition and ripped abs, I am not really bulking up.

    Does this really happen to some people? Am I doing something wrong?

    I know I am what they call an ectomorph and it is incredibly hard for me to put on weight.
    Can anybody help?

    Thanks y'all

    Eat more and wait another week.
    If no results could be fake.

    I'm willing to bet you're not eating nearly as much as you think you are. I would say 99% of people that say "it's impossible for me to gain weight, I eat all the time" aren't eating enough.

    7 pounds may not seem so great but that is 5.5% of your bodyweight which for a lot of other people would be 10 pounds or greater, which makes it sound like you are doing just fine.

    However, if you are 127 pounds you should have stayed natural for awhile to figure out your body first.

    Hi, the problem is... I have been natural AND goind to the gym for about 3 years and could never pass the 127lbs mark.
    Yeah, I am happy I got to 134lbs, but not extra happy.
    I have just increased my calorie intake, protein.

    Will keep you guys posted.

    Good grief, 7lbs in 4 weeks and you're disappointed? What's with these youngins expecting to become Arnold after a few weeks? The way I see it you're well on your way to putting on 15lbs in a 12 week cycle. That's more than a 10% body weight increase! How can you be disappointed with that?

    You made no weight gain = exactly one solution: eat more than you are eating.

    What calories do you run? Macros?

    127lbs? how tall are you? If you cannot gain mass normally then there is a problem with either your diet or training. I'm surprised that you're seeing definition on your abs if your doing 500 sust per week and bulking. You would expect to get at least some water retention. Which leads me to believe you're really not eating enough.

    My diet is pretty much like this:

    - Breakfast: porridge, brown bread with cheese/cottage cheese, milk, Whey protein, BCAA, cod fish oil and multivitamin tablet.

    ***1st snack: 1 banana, apple juice from pressed, one brown toast with strawberry jam and whey protein.

    -Lunch: tuna couscous, capers, tomatoes or pasta with tomato sauce and chicken fillets.

    ***2nd snack: 1 banana, ribena, one brown toast with strawberry jam and whey protein.

    - Dinner: two brown toasts, eggs, milk, BCAA. (sometimes yoghurt as well)

    ***3rd snack: 1 banana, ribena, one brown toast with strawberry jam and whey protein.

    before bed time: Selenium 200mcg and Zinc 15mg


    And by the way: I am 5'8" (172cm) tall.

    I actually don't care WHAT you eat or WHEN you eat it.

    I do need some numbers though. Total calories, total grams of protein, carb and fat for the day.

    If you don't know this, that's why you didn't gain weight. So let's fix it: FitDay - Free Weight Loss and Diet Journal - enter your food, post up the numbers.

    More protein?
    How much more do you think I should be taking?
    What would you recommend on a daily basis?

    Ta!

    Thank you so much for doing this! So many guys just give me lip when I suggest this.

    Okay you are eating 3000 calories a day and not gaining. The solution is simple: start eating 3500 calories a day, EVERY DAY, and monitor your gains. If you don't gain on this, go to 4000.

    I guarantee you gains.

    How much protein? At least a gram per pound lean mass, but honestly, 1.5 or even 2 g per pound lean mass isn't a bad idea.

    Fat - at least half a gram per pound lean mass. Higher is fine - just don't go lower.

    Carbs - whatever. Get in your protein and fat minimums, and fill up the rest of your calories from whatever you want. Just make DAMNED sure you get in 3500 calories a day. Feel free to take advantage of olive oil - a shot of olive oil in each of two shakes takes care of your extra calories.

    Get back to me in a week, lemme know how you feel.
