    Why all the DECA bashing?

    Every post I read about deca almost everyone says it sucks that EQ is FAR superior. To be honest I think most of these guys havent even tried it. Sure you MIGHT get bloated or maybe a limp ding-a-ling but deca has been a proven muscle builder over the past many years. So for all you bros that have used DECA and liked it, chime in here and lets here your results. Deca is the one compound I have not run yet and am planning on it soon.

    Love Deca if you run it alone you dont see huge water gains like test but I gained 23 quality pounds of 300mg once a week for 9 weeks. If you run it with test though a few of my friends have seen 25 to 30 pound gains. I have run eq with test e before. Go with the deca i personally think eq is a waste of money for what you get.

    I liked the gains I made with deca , but I sure hated the sides.
    last time I used it I ran a 500test/400deca cycle. I gaind about 20-22 lbs and retaind about 15lbs in 12 weeks. so not bad in my opinion. but I had a sever case of lethargy and a major case depression. I was so depressed while on that shit I did did not want to deal with anything. it was a major effort just to get out of bed. I used an eca stack just to give me the energy to go to the gym.
    I will not use it again....EVER, but that is just me. I liked the gains but it was something my body hated. And thats ok. everyone will react to stuff differently, so the people that bash it probaly just had a bad experience with it.
    So I got to agree with WolfyEVH, It is all about whatever works for each person

    I personally see a lot better gains in size and strength with deca . I wouldnt use eq again unless it was during a cutter to harden up a bit a get some vascularity.

    I'm running Test E and Deca right now and I'm quite pleased with the results. I am experiencing some bloat, nothing too major.
    I'm on week 12 and my sex drive is still way up, good thing my girl is a closet nympho.
    Deca is a steroid that I would definately use again. No complaints here.

    I know I'm new, but I haven't really seen much Deca bashing. Most just reccomend stacking it with another compound for better results.

    will be trying deca for the first time on my next cycle at 400mg/wk along with test at 500mg/wk, i'll be taking proviron at 50mg ED for extra labido protection, letro at 0.5mg to keep down the bloat, and hcg at 500iu E4D to prevent the boys from shrinking, can't wait!

    do you guys reckon 1.5-2lbs a week is possible from this cycle? assuming i'm eating above maintenance and i am still below my genetically enhanced limit? (so over 10 wks that would be a 15-20lb gain)

    I have used Deca but not EQ just yet... You can't find anything like Deca for your joints though.... ahhh.... soothing relief! but yeah the bloat sucks a little... I'm going to run EQ and Deca together this upcoming cycle... Deca increases collagen synthesis but more importantly synovial fluids that lube your joints... where as EQ will have a more dramatic effect on collagen synthesis... anyways... I am betting that using a little of both together is about the best way to go!

    I had the same problems with depression while on deca in addition to bad back acne. I will not run it again. Remember everyone reacts different.

    Never a problem.Works when needed!

    100 mgs is perfect.that's actually an HRT dose.Most of the older,retired BBers at my gym use it that way year round.

    Cyp/Deca /HGH is one of the standard protocols of HRT.I know many guys that are prescribed that from their doctors.

    If you got the cash,the doctors will write HGH scripts all day long.Same with Cyp and Deca .
    There's alot of retired high level BBers where I train.They're all on that combo.

    I am too,but with my own prescription.

    I have been on deca and test since November and mine is functioning just fine thank you. No ball shrinkage and I even DID my wife 3 times today at my ripe old age of 40, and it took no time at all to give the juice too. My secret is take tongkat ali all during your cycle and use it in place of HCG , it essentially does the same thing HCG does. Recovers bad sex drive and nut size no matter what you are on and it also restores the volume, thickness and fertility/sperm count of your cum, completely defeating the effects of deca on your manhood. My nut size right now in spite of approximately 10 to 11 months of deca use, are slightly "larger" then precycle size, sex drive, volume, fertility, etc are all perfectly normal!

    actually I'm from the US of A and in this country we quit extracting HUMAN growth hormone from Cadavers a long time ago... apparently the risk of serious disease from using this particular kind of growth hormone isn't worth the risk associated with it when we can get prescriptions for synthetic GH (growth hormone) that is just as effective... anyways... HGH is not what people are taking... it's GH. Just an FYI!

    What the hell is the difference between HGH and GH?? I know it used to be sourced from cadavers and now is almost exclusively recombinant DNA technology. But you still call it hgh right??

    I'm pretty sure whether you call it HGH or GH people will understand I just think it's stupid to refer to it as an inferior product... It's growth hormone now... it's not extracted from cadavers so therefore I will call it what it is.. we aren't calling Test... Bull Test even though the first steroids were extractions from Bull testicles... so it just made sense to me to stick with the modern term of GH... if you're stuck on HGH though I'll just overlook your stubborness..

    Ive ran both (currently on EQ) and I must agree with Dive kid, I was super lethargic and didnt want to do anything. Wanted to sleep. I personally wouldnt do a test/deca stack again, I love EQ so far. Not huge gains but I have gained what I wanted and am a lot harder. Maybe I might run a Test/Deca/EQ stack, see how that goes. A bro on here ran that and said he got really good gains.

    amen. people, i guess, always want to try the "new" stuff on the block. deca , dbol , sust. good, proven result stuff. stick with the basics and you will get your best results.

    Well isnt there something you can take while using deca to counteract the tiredness that comes with it. I would think that all the size that comes with a cycle is enough to make me want to live in the gym. Is it really that hard to get motivated while on deca?

    i get pumped and energetic on most aas. imo its all mental. just the thought of going to the gym pumps me up. i guess i'm an addict though. but everyone reacts differently. i'm glad i lucked out.

    I never tried tribulus this way, but it may work too... I often take it as a test enhancer in my body... I never mesured, but it worked... even though it was psychological or not...

    deca is one of the safest and most effective AAS out there... stacked with test and jumpstarted with dbol is a great synergistic stack.. 12 weeks 500 test, 400 deca, and first 6 weeks with 40mg dbol is awsome...

    No need. I like to keep it fairly simple most of the time and the main effect I really get from eq is just hardening up which I could care less about when I'm in the middle of bulking.
