Another positive effect of deca-durabolin was reported by many bodybuilders who prior using this drug experienced pains in joints but once using it they started to enjoy training with no pain and that is attributed to deca’s ability to store more water in connective tissues.
However there are some moments which must be known by you before you start using nandrolone decanoate , it has a very strong effect on decreasing your sexual drive and it can cause gyno in some individuals. So have Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) on hand in case you feel gyno symptoms.
Hey Buck, nice to meet you.
Here is a good cycle layout:
– Week 1 to 12: Testosterone enanthate @ 250 mg every days (500mg/week total)
– Week 1 to 12: HCG @ 250 iu every days (500 iu/week total)
– Week 1 to 14: Arimidex @ every other day (From day 2 up until PCT starts)
After your last testosterone injection, you’ll need to wait 14 days to start PCT. This
allows just enough time for the enanthate ester to clear your system so that you can start
therapy. Remember to continue taking your AI during those 2 weeks. You can also
choose to use Aromasin, the recommended dose is 25mg daily.
Post Cycle Therapy should consist of both Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) and Clomiphene
(Clomid). The combination is important as they work in synergy to help you recover.
Running only one of them will hinder your chance of recovery some. Your PCT protocol
for this cycle should look like the following:
Clomid @ 75/50/50/50 & Nolvadex @ 40/20/20/20
The Test E put my blood level at 900 ng/dL cruising at 150 mg/wk (multiplier 6).
The Test P gave me a blood level of >1900 ng/dL at 300 mg/wk when run alongside Tren, a similar response.
The Tren A gave an E2 reading (ECLIA, non-sensitive) of >600 pg/mL.
HCG had no observable effect on my testicular volume (atrophy was not noticeable anyway) nor ejaculation volume (which was diminished while on cycle). I did not test my sperm count.
I have not yet PCT'd using the Nolvadex and/or Clomid.
The Arimidex seemed effective to me, though less so than Aromasin I have used since (cannot compare to other sources' Arimidex). I kept my E2 at the high end of the reference range (40 pg/mL) by taking 1 mg/wk total (divided up, of course) while taking 300mg/wk Test P.
