    it's water weight, the gains should slow down significantly by the 3rd week

    u gotta somewhat an easy goal i believe, just get as much gains as possible out of the cycle then work on trimming down all extras, u gonna end up giving up about 65-70% of the total gains, so propably out of 20 lbs, u'll keep about 4-5 only

    Try to eat 4,000 calories per day in total
    2 grams of protein per 1lbs of lean mass

    And (again) stop smoking

    This sounds like what my first(only) cycle was like, I was just taking test and I gained about 30 lbs total in 5 weeks. A lot is water, and it's not always known on us lean guys that it is infact water., but water aint so bad to have while on a cycle

    6% body fat? And you put on over thirty pound before your test cyp kicked in?

    Copy and paste the link for it to work.

    You are definitely < 10% BF. You will look great at 200lbs. or so.

    < 10% = less than 10%. I can't tell you your exact bodyfat but it looks to be less than 10%. I was just saying you look lean.
