Guys I have one question: Why does everyone insist on using Test in a cycle?? If you read the novice cycles on this website, they show cycles of Deca only, Eq only , deca and winny, etc. Not many have test involved. I was under the impression that the use of test should be reserved for the time when the lighter stuff is not as effective. I also thought that Test makes you bloat up, and once you stop, your gains diminish quickly as well as strength. Not to mention the danger of gynecomastia and the notion that using test will make it quite obvious to friends/coworkers that you're on the juice. Is this not true?? I mean if you can do a cycle of EQ and winny and end up with 10-15lbs of muscle, and according to this website have a good chance of keeping gains (assuming you follow PCT), and stand a good chance of passing off as a natural athlete, then I dont understand the theory behind adding test.
I'm not doubting the experience of this board, however, when you all say "do your research"...if that research is done on this site and some others that give examples of beginner cycles you are clearly led to believe that Test is discouraged until later in the game. Can someone clear this up??

Do you like to have sex? If you do then you will want to run test in your cycles....... When the other AS have you shut down the test will keep you going.
Gyno....... This is why we use anti-e's in our cycles like nolva, femera, l-dex.........
Natural athlete? Come on bro....... if your running AS then you are not natural anymore so if your called out on it then be a man fess up or keep it to yourself and say you use a lot of proteinf and supps.
That first page has information as old as my Grandfather..... the info you want to research is in here in these forums.

Second, to answer all of your questions, spend some time in here reading about everyones experiences and cycles. You will see why we all love test.

Testosterone , along with nandolone and DHT are the basic naturaly occuring male hormones. testosterone is included in all cycles because it is quite simply the end all be all of steroids . It is the middle point of the three hormones: nandrolone is very anabolic and not very androgenic , DHT has no anabolic power whatsoever, but is the most androgenic hormone in the human body. Test is the balance. this is the reason why it is the only steroid suitable to be ran alone. All other synthetic steroids are derivatives of either nandrolone or DHT, and thus have either a very strong anabolic component or a very strong androgenic one. Test is most imortantly included in cycles that have a nandrolone or nandrolone derivative (eq,deca ,tren ) because of the low androgenic properties of the nandrolones. without androgens (i.e. DHT), depression, impotence, loss of motivation, etc can all ensue. Testosterone is also capable of reducing to estrogen, which is much easier to deal with than its nandrolone counterparts. estrogen can also be beneficial in many ways (but thats a different discussion).

Test does blow you up, its a very noticable change in one's body, even with lower doses. Even with anti-e's your gains on test are usually far more dramatic than any other steroid . My first time around I got called out alot, and always pulled the McGuire excuse ... lots of creatine and andro.
Comparatively speaking, the gains on a winny only cycle aside from your weight maxes isn't nearly as noticable.
So if you're trying to fly under the radar so to speak there could be something to be said about ommiting test from your cycle. That is if you're prepared to deal with the consequences of doing so.

I highly value my sex life. And I when my woman is happy, I'm happy. When my woman is unhappy, I am VERY unhappy. With that being said... I EXTREMELY value Test in ANY cycle.

I love test b/c of the gains, and the ability to keep up healthy bodily function. Test rocks.

Test is what made us men to begin with, besides the extra fun in the bedroom is a blast

Testosterone is the Male Body's Natural Hormone....the rest should be obvious.
And I'm pretty sure that homepage is a little older than Mud's Grandpa actually.....I think Zeus wrote it,,,not sure.

Why bother doing a 12 week cycle if you're only going to gain 10-15 pounds? That can be done naturally in the same amount of time.

if it's your 1st or even 2nd cycle then you will make huge progress regardless of what your taking.but if you have been cycleing for 10 yrs.your not gonna blow up on test or anything else.trust me.i'm at 272# now and yeah if i wanted to blow up to 300# i could,but that wouldn't be a clean 300#.i'm content staying around the same weight on a cycle but changing my body composition.so if at 270# i have 15%bf and doing a 12week cycle i only gain 5 to 8 lbs but drop my bf down to single digits.then i did something that you cant do naturally.and the change is very noticable.so as far as you blowing up on test,it wont happen.if it did then guys like coleman would be 600#.your only gonna get so big(weight wise)then when you do a cycle your gonna be more specific on drugs and dosages.you only get a couple of cycles to jump 20 to 30# after that it's all about quality of gains.i remember being 19 and taking only 50mg of anadrol /ed for a month and gaining 20#.no chance on that happening again....
i kinda got of track here,i think alot of these questions are from guys who only have one cycle under their belt and not a good one at that,so to you.yeah you will blow up running test with anything else.or even running it alone.and to the guys who have 10 or more cycles under their belt,then you now what i was rambeling about.

i'd like to vote for an updated home-page as well, i'm just a newbie but already sick of the misconceptions.
i my self only researched the home page before starting my first deca only cycle. big mistake. i wish i found the forums earlier.

Actually I gained 30 pounds in 3-4 months naturally by changing my diet and cutting cardio. And no, it was not all fat.
