    20 pounds is very reasonable if you know how to eat and train

    It's not so much what you gain on cycle, that's the easy part. It's maintaining it post cycle.

    Iím 2 1/2 weeks into my first cycle and am up almost 10lb already. No way will I keep all of that but Iím excited to see how everything settles after all the fluff from AAS comes off after cycle. 170lb at 6í are you sure you have a good enough base?

    You’ll need to up that substantially by the cycle end to get anywhere near 20lbs and then up it again during and after PCT to try and maintain it.

    Wouldn't excessive calories during PCT cause a lot of fat gain in absence of high test levels?

    a hyper-caloric diet during pct is the only way to help maintain and keep gains and get your body to acclimate to its new weight. gaining a small amount of body fat during this crucial time is irrelevant to anyone serious about putting on and keeping muscle

    At the end of my second week dont feel any different but my lifts seem to be going up a little, and i have put on 4lbs this week which seems early to be seeing results im guessing its mostly water.

    1st cycle I gained 65+ Lbs. . . . Go big or go home, right?! Nooooo, it was a real bad idea


    20+ Lbs. Amazingly enough was keep-able weight, even after PCT

    I just got real fat, went from 170(ish) to 245 - then back down to 190+
