    thinking about changing test and extending cycle.....

    I am currently on ICN 500 mg a week and QV EQ 400 mgs a week while taking 1/2 tab of femera every third day. I am on my 8th week currently. So far I have liked the gains (20 lbs no water weight) but the gains have stopped. I have stayed at 201 lbs for a good 2 weeks now. I was thinking aout switching to a fast acting test like propionate for the last 5 weeks and keeping the eq at 400 mgs a week. Do you think I would increase my gains better with the propionate (since it is faster acting ester) or should I run the test enath for another 5 weeks? LMK what you guys think. Thanks.

    Yeah you can switch for the last 5 weeks. I don't see a problem with it.
    20lbs in 8 weeks is a really good gain though....

    My weight hasn't gone up scale-wise in a while, but you can't just go by the scale! My strength is still climbing, and my bf% is dropping. Your muscle density may be displacing water weight...and your bf may be dropping. The mirror tells more truth than the scale does. The other thing is, maybe your receptors are getting saturated. It sounds like you have made some great gains...don't get too greeedy bud!
    You don't have to gain it all at once. Plus, the more muscle you gain quickly, the harder it is to maintain off cycle.

    thanks for the replies

    Yea, I know not to get greedy your right 20lbs isnt bad. But, I was planning on 13 weeks from the beginning, would it make more sense to stay with the slower ester like enath or change to prop? I'm not sure what to do, my strength is going up still also but no weight gains. Thanks bros.
