    Bodyweight/Dosage?

    Here's something I'm wondering; shouldn't bodyweight and/or size have some relationship to dosage?

    Say I wanna do 400mg of EQ/wk, which a lot of people recommend for newbies like me (plus test en). But I weigh 230 (18%bf) -isn't that going to make a big difference as opposed to someone who weighs,say, 150?

    I want to do a mild cycle for my first but I don't want to underdose to the point where nothing much happens.

    Any suggestions/comments?

    Thanx!!

    Yes - bodyweight (more imprtantly LEAN bodyweight) play a big role in noticable effects. But anything exogenous over you natural androgen levels will give results. If you want to do a mild Equipoise cycle at your weight I would suggest 500-600mg per week with a gram frontload. Only 400mg of total combined androgens per week may be too mild for you... especially when considering the ester weight of Equipoise.

    Thanks bro.
    I was planning on 250mg T Enan & 400mg EQ/week.
    Those sound adequate for my bodyweight or should I bump it up?

    i think you should run more test than eq. 500mg enan 400mg eq/week should be adequate

    250mg per week of test enanthate is pretty minimal. That's about 175mg/wk of free testosterone when you subtract the heavy enanthate ester weight.

    I would say, for you...

    Weeks 1-10: Equipoise 400mg per week
    Weeks 1-10: Test Enanthate 500mg per week

    You are also going to need an anti-e during the cycle (Arimidex , Nolvadex or Proviron ) and Clomid to come off. IMO - since you are running only long esters, to make weeks 10-13 more bearable run Clomid 50mg ED until you load it 21 days after last Eq shot.

    Thanks for the resonses, Warrior and the rest.
    And the thread posted above is great. (You still around buylongterm? Could I ask your bodyweight?)

    I've read a lot of posts by people who've done well on low doses. But it occured to me later that maybe a lot of the people who did well at lower doses may have done so because their body weight was considerably less than mine. I definitely buy the "low dose" idea, especially for starters, but I don't want to shortchange myself by going too low if bodyweight is a consideration for dosage.

    Hey Bro havn't seen you around for awhile, how you been?

    Hey Bro if I remember right we're the same age or close to. Go with a test only cycle at 400-500mg a week. I think you'll be pretty happy. Save the EQ for your next cycle.
