After taking several months off I decided to place an order with raw and try out a few of his products. Before my injury I was around 225. After my injury before this cycle I dropped down to 202lbs and looked like crap. I'm 5 weeks into this 12 week cycle running 500mg test-E and 250 mg deca/ weekly. Kick started also with 50 mg liquid anadrol split twice daily for the first 21 days. I'm currently up to 217lbs with about 10% BF. I have been holding a little water which is to be expected. The test is doing its job, some back acne, increased libido etc and the deca taken at this low of a dose makes me knees feel a lot better. This anadrol is the best I have ever taken so if your a "drol head" like me it's definitely for you. Drol also gives me amazing pumps and strength has gone up considerably. Last week I was goofing of and hit 225 for 30 reps (not bad for a broke dick).
You seem to know where you’re at. I’m about your age, I think, with about the same attitudes too. One thing I did is swap out benching for the standing military press. It seems to have been a good move. My shoulders are far less tweaky and weird and it doesn’t seem like I’m missing anything by retiring as a bench presser. Your post mentions a ‘lack of spotters’ and that’s one of my favorite things about no longer benching. The danger/stress is gone. I absolutely blew out my shoulder once while benching and after that it now seems sooo possible that it could happen again. I just don’t bench anymore and it’s not the huge gap that I know it would seem like it is. If you’re tweaky and in any way discouraged with your benching career, you might want to consider it. Hit the standing military press hard. Learn it from Rippetoe youtube vids. It’s more a comprehensive lift than I ever thought it was.
Ran this 4 weeks on 4weeks off and final 4 weeks of bulk cycle.
Ran at 100mg a day which seemed to be my sweet spot. 50mg am & 50mg pm. I did go as far as 150mg for a few days, but had to back off as i was getting high blood pressure.
First few weeks i had the usual water weight and bloat. Pumps where crippling during sets and also had bad back cramps/pumps. Had to up my AI in the second four week blast as nipples where very sensitive and it seemed to do the job to combat the elevated estro.
Overall one of the best Adrol i used and packed on a good 14 pounds over the 12weeks. That was inculding test & deca as well.
