    Placebo effect or what?

    Ok, so I did my first ever jab on sunday. In the right glutes. (FYI, all went smoothly until halfway in, when the focker wouldn't let the rest of the liquid in. LOL I thought WTF are you supposed to do when you are left holding a halfway filled syringe and the rest of the shit just wont go in? No sticky on here for that It did eventually, just took really long).

    Anyway, so sunday I worked back and had a shitty workout actually, went home dejected. But monday, tuesday and wednesday, I hit more than my max on squats, bench and curls respectively. PRs through and through!! I mean just a bit, like 5-10 pounds and a couple of reps, but I've been stuck for sooooooooo long, that I'm overjoyed!!

    So what do you guys think? Placebo? Or test starting to kick in so soon? I'm running a basic test e cycle, shooting 250 mg twice a week.

    What size pin (length, gauge) are you using?

    I agree with Amorphic / Insane...You're morale is going to be highest right now that you've began your first cycle, so you'll put THAT much more heart into your workouts.

    That plateau break you experienced will seem light when you're at the midway point.

    I say not placebo. Test starts working for me within a couple days of the first shot, even at lower doses than that. But I agree, it will build up and up.

    mind over matter is more than just a saying
