    First Test E cycle.. Help

    Hi,

    So I am currently on week 5 of my test only cycle. Eating roughly 3,000 calories each day and I have not gained much weight let alone see any significant gains.

    My cycle is 500mg of Test E a week. My choice of AI is Arimadex, however I have not began to take it since I am not noticing symptoms. I have Nolva available if need.

    My question is, why aren't I gaining weight or experiencing remarkable gains? I have been working out for roughly 6 years, 3 which have been consistent. Therefor, I am confident in my training style. What is the issue?

    Additionally, I got my gear from a trusted source, along with test labs.

    Here are my stats.



    23 Y/o
    5'5
    starting weight 132
    current weight 137 (week 5)

    Since you've already started...

    Get bloodwork done. Should've had it done BEFORE too, but I'm assuming that you didn't.

    If it is legit, you're just now reaching peak levels.

    You've gained 5 pounds in 5 weeks, at a BW of 132lbs to start. That's progress.

    How long is the cycle going to be? What are your plans for after?

    I will be doing my cycle for 12 weeks. I have tried to get my blood work done, the doctors I have visited in my area will not order me the test. However, they are aware of what I am doing.

    My plan, for after the cycle is over is to do a PCT, recover and continue to train. I may or may not continue with anabolics depending on my experience after this cycle.

    5lb and now the magic is about to happen, I don’t see an issue with that gain so soon. CJ will sort you out with the rest. FYI even though it’s too late your a bit young and a bit small to start a cycle. But now your on with a good pct you should be good

    At first I was paranoid that the test was under dosed or even fake. Though I felt more full and stronger at week 3. After reading a lot of forms and reading that people made noticeable gains by week 4, I suppose I was just expecting the same for me.

    I'm assuming that you live in the US. For the future...

    This works in MOST states. Only you see the results, no Dr's needed. Female panel is the correct one, don't worry, it's just a word.

    Sorry for this CRAZY question, but why are you taking AAS at 132 pounds? If you have worked out for 6 years and only weigh 132, AAS is not going to help. Its either a crappy diet or your training.

    5lb is noticeable gains your taking a slow acting compound and itís not magic, if you want to gain more eat more, sleep more and train harder. Itís not gear that hinders the gains

    Ideally, I was tired of not gaining the weight I wanted after years of training and trying different diets, I am about to graduate college and continue my career in a field which size does make a difference. I wanted to test myself, and have a little more motivation to train harder than I ever have. I understand I am a smaller male, regardless I wanted to try something I have wanted to do for some time now.

    As long as you're not NY, NJ, or RI, we have a few places that'll work. Even if you're in those states, you can drive to a neighbor state if it's close enough.

    If you're going to do this, might as well do it right. The bloodwork isn't really about testing your gear, it's keeping tabs on your liver, kidneys, lipids, and other things, like estrogen or prolactin. You can catch problems before they become PROBLEMS.

    Plus, getting another round done AFTER pct will let you know if/how much you've recovered to baseline.
