    Equipoise for lean bulk / recomp?

    Iím looking to do a very lean bulk, almost a recomp and want to try something different from my usual bulking cycles:
    500 test / 300 deca
    250 test / 600 deca
    750 test / 600 deca
    750 test

    Iím looking for something that will build a little muscle, but more important is that it cements in my previous strength gains and doesnít cause any sides or bloating

    I considered masteron, but heard it is useless for bulking and whatever cosmetic effects it provides will go away as soon as you come off

    Equipoise has come up a lot as a good lean bulking agent, but Iím worried about a couple things:

    I know it converts to E a little so Iíll need some advice on how to adjust my Arimidex to account for that.

    Iíve heard it causes anxiety, depression, etc. Is this true? Is it common? Is it severe?

    Iím currently going through some personal and work stress and although Iíve never been medicated or anything like that, I certainly have dealt with mild depression in the past and donít need something that will cause any more problems than I already have

    Also, dosage. Iíve heard 600mg / week is good. Will that still be enough if I stay at 250mg test or will I have to up it or stack it with something?

    Thanks for the help guys, but Iíd like to say in advance Iíd prefer to hear advice from people who have actually run equipoise themselves and would like advice about EQ, not something like ďjust take deca insteadĒ

    It makes me slightly uneasy feeling. It's so slight that I only notice it when I come off and feel normal again. I took it for 16 weeks at 600 mg per week and thought it was a waste of time. Basically just stabbed myself with a needle 32 times for no good reason. Lol. Maybe it's good stacked with other stuff. I only took it on top of my trt dose.

    I will speak to the EQ part as its a staple in many of my cycles. I also have tons of stress and yes EQ will intensify it. Its not the same for everyone but is noticeable for myself. EQ interferes with the GABA receptors in the brain. GABA is produced to help with stress and anxiety so a reduction will have an effect. I personally take gabapentin daily and it helps tremendously with these sides. EQ gives me great vascularity as well which I like. I run between 400-600mg per week depending on what else I am taking. I keep my test around 400-500 tops.

    Thanks for the feedback! So you run moderate test and EQ slightly higher ó what else do you like to stack the EQ with and what dosages do you like?

    Also do you get any size or strength benefits from the EQ or just vascularity?

    Lastly how long do you cycle EQ for, Iíve heard 16 weeks or even 20

    Thanks again for the help!

    Thanks for your response because that’s exactly what I was thinking of doing — throwing the EQ on top of my cruise dose at 600mg / week so I appreciate you letting me know that the bad sides weren’t really noticeable, but the benefits weren’t, either!

    I get good strength on it and its great for a recomp. I will run it with deca or just front load tbol. I keep my calories tight so I cap the size gains but these days I want anesthetics over bulk.

    Awesome, it looks like just the cycle I was looking for to get the results I want, strength and aesthetics over bulk. Your help is much appreciated!

    How do you dose the EQ and deca?

    I handle deca very well at 600mg using just B6 twice a day. I prefer to keep my test at 250mg so I donít have to deal with estrogenic sides

    I was thinking of keeping my test at 250 mg and adding 600mg deca and 600mg equipoise, is that similar to what you do?

    I typically run about 400 test. 600 EQ and deca between 400-500. Just personal preference. If I run deca higher my prolactin gets too high.

    To harden up or 'cement in' why not do a short Var cycle?
