    Exactly. There is no evidence to suggest either way. But if there is evidence why dismiss it?

    What he's saying is that the changes you made based on experience helped.
    But perhaps using scientific data on top of experience, you could have been 1, 5, even 10% better off than where you are now.

    Alright, some of you guys know my numbers from back in the day. Who here can tell me that a 10 % increase in my squat while in the 198's is doable for me? Let's not forget, I was clean as the day is long.

    Sorry Zilla, got off topic.

    I'm kind of just letting you guys get all this out of your systems here. As long as it doesn't spread over to the other threads its all good

    As to your question of how a study would help a first cycle:

It was a study that showed how much test the average body produces and what's needed to go supraphysiological. If you're asking for a scientific study to write you out the perfect first cycle it'll never happen bc of the ethical restrictions researchers are operating under.
    Its a good point docd

    The problem is simply that you can find studies and theories that suggest both. Science is not absolute like math and physics. Your answer and data will depend on who conducted the study. POB said it best on the second post of the sticky here:

    Basically be open minded about being wrong.
    IMO, talk to those who have first hand experience and learn from them vs 3rd and 4th hand information given in a "study"
