Test/Deca cycle question
Let me start with my stats, I'm 45, 5'11" and weigh in at 242. been lifting pretty much all my life but only started anabolics about 3 years ago. i usually just run cycles of test at about 1000mg per week. I just started a new cycle of 800 Test and 600 Deca. I want to bulk up now, then switch off to a cutting cycle after. I was talking to one of the "bigger" guys at the gym yesterday and he asked me why I was taking so much. He said that 500 Test and 200 Deca would be just fine and any more than that I would just be wasting my money. I don't want to sound naive, maybe I am, but wouldn't the more juice you do help your muscles grow bigger? I want to grow, not stagnate.

thanks for any input guys!

There is a point of diminishing returns. The more you take, the more side effects you'll have also. Yeah, you'll have slightly better results with 1000 vs 750, but is it worth the extra sides? If more was better, then guys would be going around using 5000mgs if they could afford it. I've heard of people going up to +2000mgs, but they are at risk of having a heart attack at any minute, they feel like shit, they can't sleep, they're putting their bodies through hell...

Do what you're comfortable with. If you're happy balancing the sides/results from 1000mg, then go for it. It's your body. If you're happy with the deca/test cycle you mentioned, then even better. Deca and test is a much better combination compared to just test at higher dosages if only for the "joint lubrication" and the other benefits Deca is known for. One thing is for sure though...competing pros and amateurs alike take much more that 1000mg, so the guy that told you that more than 750mg is a waste has no idea what he's talking about.
