    simple mistakes during your first or any cycles?

    Im finishing up my first cycle and would like this thread to be dedicated to mistakes that novices could benefit from.

    Heres one I just thought of.

    Almost my whole cycle I have been doing 2 injections twice a week. I would shoot a cc of eq thru one pin, throw it out. Then shoot a cc of test e thru a new pin. I learned that shooting test straight Is pretty painful the days later.
    I learned to combine the 2 in a single pin and its not painful really at all.

    1.Combine Eq and test in the same pin for alot less pain.


    Heres something that doesnt exactly have to do with aas but its part of the journy.

    I started eating totally different this period. I would eat alot right before bed, alot of carbs. I noticed I couldnt sleep and slept horrid. It was due to the carbs before bed.

    2. Dont eat carbs right before bed or you will have trouble sleeping.

    start cutting out the carbs a few hours atleast before bed, you will feel so much better!


    i was blaming the aas, but it was the carbs.

    your body has to burn the carbs up before you can sleep, you bodys temperature gets hotter and it disables you from sleeping. Think of your body as a furnace and you are fueling it with carbs, you wont be able to sleep until the furnace dies down and you are cool. : )

    Mine was front loading with sust for the first three weeks then switching to test c. My gains stopped because the Test C didnt kick in until the end of the cycle. I should have done one or the other !!!

    my biggest mistake was, and I admit still is, to not stick to my cycle - I tend to increase the doses above what I planned.....

    My diet always seems to suck while I am on. I always get around 6000 calories and 300grams of protein but the rest is pretty horrible. These are mistakes I have learned to fix.

    haha^ yea but not that much when you think about it.

    go to wendys or bugerkind and easily get a few thousand calories in one sitting.

    its so hard to eat that many calores clean tho. like oatmeal and lean chicken.

    I don't get that reaction from test. I'm on my 5th week of 500mg Test. Cyp. and 40mg of Dbol for the first four weeks. I shot the first 4 on the glute, then decided to switch it up and try one in the quad. I did the quad injection this morning, AND I SAY GOD D*MN IT HURTS LIKE A BEOTCH!!! It is starting to go away, but it hurt to walk earlier today. More of a dull deep pain. But I had a little soreness once or twice with a glute shot, but nothing unbearable.

    My suggestion is to get your dose in the syringe, the roll it quickly back and forth between your two hands for 30 seconds to one minute. This will warm it up and also slightly thin it out.

    Wendys and Burgerkind WTF. I dont think they are good options. How big are you, do you really need 6000 calories ?

    But if you front loaded with sust, then by 3rd week the levels of test should be quite high (peaked out) as there are long acting esters in sust. I think theoretically you didn't really mess up, although it could be much more 'stable' if you didn't do what you did. You shouldn't have lost anything from 3rd week or 4th week to end of your cycle right? PM me, don't want to jack his thread.

    Mine was starting PCT right after last shot of can't remember test/deca /or Eq. And PCT lasted only 2 weeks. New theories / studies come up everyday so half of the things we're doing now may be considered as 'wrong' or 'not ideal' 10 years from now!

    Yeah, I made the mistake of running out of pins which I now know is retarded now because of the AR Research site. I was reusing the same pin for about 2 and a half weeks... No infection either, surprisingly.

    It's not that critical either I think.
