    I would throw some Deca in this time. Im on the same cycle now ( plus 4 weeks dibol) and Im putting some descent weight on. Eq is a bit more for cutting, but if your trying to add weight you need to eat like a horse regardless of Roid choice. Good luck bro..

    Without question, you want deca . I've done both and i love deca. Eq has a bit more subtle results in my opinion. A stack of test e @ 500mg/wk and deca @400mg/wk will make you happy. You should have no problem breaking 200 lbs and keeping it. Run the doses a bit higher if you want but that is a good solid mass gainer.

    I'm also in the same situation. I'm going to take test e @750 a week, and I cant decide between deca 300 weekly, or eq 300 weekly.

    Bump. I just started 500test and 400deca (dbol wk 1-4) ... would it be any good to add 300EQ? I've got it on hand.

    Whoah I am a bit surprised to hear comments suggesting Deca over EQ. Its a medically proven fact EQ has more positive effects than Deca with less occurance of any negative side effects. It dramatically increases your appetite and you said you are looking to gain mass so "Dramatically increasing your appetite" is what you are looking for.

    Check out this link and look under EQ and you will see what I am talking about.

    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/catsteroids.htm

    So in short if you can get it ALWAYS choose EQ over deca during the offseason. For obvious reasons increased appetite is counter intuitive during the diet.

    from what i've read and from the people i know, EQ has had the best results with the minimum sides. i've just heard too much bad about deca . not that it hasn't been fine for some. diet and your pct will play a huge part

    I'm starting to think E.Q is a much better drug...Bigger appetite,Low sides
    But what are the gains like?

    They are not rapid like what test will give you, instead they are quality hard muscle.

    personally i would go with eq over deca anyday expecially while bulking.Your gains will be more solid,and you WILL be hungry.With eq i find its not as harsh on my body and i will not bloat with it,and recovery is musch easier.While on eq my pumps are through the roof,and vascular like no other.I will always preach eq over deca.

    this is why i chose to run EQ this cycle over deca. I am running 750mg cypionate with 400-500 mg EQ,,,not sure yet. I will be running dbol 1-4 and tapering off cycle with prop so i hit my PCT strong. Anyway i have deca on hand too so next cycle i may stack them all three and see what happens...but for this cycle im keepin it light. Good luck man

    not sure as to your motives behind this question bro,i kinda feel like you are trying to call me out.Reguardless of your motives, Yes i have run deca before.Matter of fact i will probally incorperate it in my next cycle at a low dose for my joints.(When i run tren and win my joints start to stiffen up)I am not totally against deca,but when someone has test and want to stack one or the other i will say eq.

    sounds like guys are still 50/50

    How about this for a deciding factor I only wanna run an 8 week cycle.
    I've heard that E.Q shouldn't be run for less than 12.?

    well if you are only going to go 8 weeks, go with test prop. and NPP. Shorter esters, so you will get the most out of it in a shorter time.

    Deca and Eq are simaler etsers and you would wasting your time taking them together. Stick with Deca/test or Eq/test... Got it homeboy

    that is the theory.Iknow several people who stack deca and eq on a regular basis,and love it.I will not advise it to anyone only because i havent done it myself to know the results first hand

    no need to get defensive at all bro. The only reason I ask is because i am trying to figure out of i want to run deca or eq with the Test E i have. not calling u out at all. enough about me.

    Just from my reading it seems that deca = bulk eq = cutting

    Either way you are still increasing your test levels. Everyone will react different to various AAS.

    Now, just ask yourself what your goals are. Simple, said and done right.

    I am say medium build 5-10, 225lb and I want to cut some bf off while gaining some LBM. I'm stocking up...for medical research purposes only of course. I am in no way promoting the use of AAS

    1-10 Test E 500mg
    1-4 Dbol 40mg
    1-2 eq front load 600mg
    3-10 eq 400mg
    1-10 Nolvadex
    12-14 Clomid

    Here is a decent cutting cycle as well

    1-12 EQ 600MG
    1-12 TEST E 500MG
    10-15 WINSTROL 50MG/DAILY
    Nolvadex and clomid for PCT

    HTH, RIG

    I have heard a lot about Eq as a cutter, but with the inherent appetite gains that come with it, this does not make sense to me. The idea that Eq is good while cutting may come from the way it increases vascularity, but I am gonna use it to bulk.

    "best results with boldenone are seen when a user front-loads. Usually that means he will use a high doses of 600-800 mg/week for 2 weeks and then lower that dose to the normal 300-400 mg/week for the remaining 8-10 weeks" quote form bodybuilding.com
    Is this true or wat, I'm gonna start my cycle soon n thinkin if i should front load the eq. Anyones feedback form experience would b apprieated

    If I hadn't done the win before I would start off with just eq and test e. Then if you feel froggy throw the win in on your next cycle if you had trouble acheiving your goals before. HTH, Rig
