Hi guys,

My name is Velimir. I come from Croatia. I've been training for more than 7 years and since I'm over 33 years I have decided to try one cycle.
I've started my first cycle with test E and Dbol. 500mg of test and 20mg of Dbol. The thing is I don't feel anything. No kick, no increase in appetite both sexual or hunger. No pumps, not even water retention. I'm on my 7th week already and I've only gained fat. I'm very consistent with training and nutrition but yet no results. I'm taking around 2.5g per kg of proteins and around 3500kcal per day. I have 82kg, 180cm and bf around 15%.
I'm going 5 to 6 times per week to gym, and train every body part 2 per week, push-pull-legs. I have strength and hypertrophy days.
Any advice is welcomed.

Thanks.

Is your occupation physically stressful? Are you getting enough rest? You could be overtraining more plays into it than going to the gym 5-6 days a week.

Well I work around 12 hours per day but it's not stressful.
I try to keep my training short but intense. Max session is like 50 min and I'm doing around 21-24 sets per training (push-pull-legs system).
The thing is I have lousy sleep. I sleep 7 hours and I keep waking up once or twice per night.

Could be not enough rest then. I would want to say not enough calories but you don't gain fat in a calorie deficit or only getting what you need so it isn't that.

Sounds to me that you are NOT very consistent with training and diet if all you are doing is getting fat. AAS or not, if your training and diet are on point you should be gaining some quality mass no matter what.

Ok, thank you guys. I'll get my blood test and then I'll see what next.

And yes, I know you won't become Mr. Olympia just by one cycle. I'll be satisfied with 10-15 pounds of lean mass. I didn't have high expectations.

must be bad gear then. get bloods and then you will know. Cause the first cycle is always the one you gain the most from for most people I can't say all but if down right that first one can be great.

Gaining fat on gear from 3600 calories while working out 5-6 times a week ...

Smells like that placebo pharma test

Exactly my point. That's why I wanted second opinion. I'm injecting 2x per week in my quads. I have very low bf on my legs and I'm sticking needle to half (1" needle) so I'm guessing I'm hitting the muscle.

  • basskiller89's picture

Even if you hit subq it doesn't matter outside of potential lumps

Perhaps you are miscalculating your calories, it just seems impossible to gain fat with what you described on genuine gear

Ok thank. And if my blood work shows my test levels are normal then what? Talk to manufacturer? Because I have read reviews on mf site and everybody is having amazing results.

Yes, have blood work done and if it comes back that your testosterone, estrogen etc. are all with the normal range, simply research some of the more reputable sources here, place another order and start back from square one when it arrives. It sucks ass to get burned like that by a shady source, but it does happen.

Also, if your blood work indicates that you are in fact injecting bunk gear, contact the supplier that you purchased from. Not necessarily the manufacturer directly, unless you bought it straight from them. If it is counterfeit gear (especially pharmaceutical grade) there isn't much that the manufacturer can do.

Also, another potential course of action is to check and see if the source that you bought it from is registered here. If so, you can leave a review and rate your experience and have a direct line of contact with them.

*Edit- A final piece of advice is not to check manufacturer/source sites for reviews on thier products. They very well may be fake reviews made by the people running the organization. Come to neutral, third party sites such as this for unbiased reviews and user experiences.

I came here for solution and advice, I'm not holding anything. If I'm not consuming enough calories how come I'm gaining fat? I mean with test you should gain muscles even if you seat on your ass.

I get the idea from what I read on T-nation in few articles. And by that I don't mean you are gonna be the next Mr. Olympia but that you can gain some muscles on juice. So my point was if you can gain some muscles doing nothing you should pack more meat by working out on juice. I didn't have high expectations, my plan was to get some 10-12 pounds of lean mass.

Next time your in a store look at a 12 lb round roast. That’s slot of lean meat. A lot of what you gain on steroids is water. Once you’ve been off as long as you were on that’s when you need to evaluate your gains. Most of the guys I see reviewing these incredible gains have never posted a picture. It’s a very slow process. If it was easy everyone would be jacked.

Seven weeks? What were you expecting? Your right where you need to be to pull bloods and make an adjustment. If your diets on point it might be time to switch up your training routine. Steroids are not magic and some guys respond better than others.

Im concerned that you're not telling us the whole story. If this is your first cycle and you are not blowing up with proper training and diet with the inclusion of test and dbol something is VERY WRONG!

My first cycle of 500mgs test e put me up 30+ lbs. Yes there was fat and not all solid muscle, but i definitely noticed as did my friends that i blew up. Something isnt right. You need blood work asap. Get that e2, test, free test, etc tested. Proviron should have that free test off the charts.

Well I'm using proviron and I don't feel any of the estrogen side effects. When I was on Dbol o felt little nipple tension but nothing serious.
I think blood work will give me answers.

Proviron is not an AI . If your estrogen prone it’s not gonna do shit. The only way to know is blood work.

it could be your estrogen high if the gear legit because you’re not taking AI
Try to do blood test on estrogen and testosterone
If you don’t feel depressed or anything else
It might be your gear not legit
Blood test will prove that to you
Good luck

I got the product straight from manufacturer. Bottle was sealed.
Training is very intense and I'm always trying to beer my last week score. I'm keeping tracks every session.
When I return back home, I'll do a blood work.
