Agreed! The apples and oranges argument is getting old and blanket statements can be dangerous to the uninformed.
I happen to have Gilbert's Syndrome (my body produces an excess amount of RBC) This is a hereditary condition that has no visible symptoms. The only reason I know I have it is because I believe in regular and thorough blood tests. Now someone with this particular condition who chooses a long EQ cycle runs the risk of "blood sludge" being that EQ increases RBC count. Now, as I do enjoy a good EQ cycle now and again by being well informed in compound effects and sides as well as my own physiology I have learned I can run EQ successfully by expelling a pint of blood a wk. (may sound a little creepy but I'm a solutions guy)
Now this is just an example of how the one size fits all advice and preference pushing can go wrong. Its one thing to have personal preferences, its another to be pushing this as better than that to a majority crowd of novices
Deca is not known as a very "fast" builder. The muscle building effect of this drug is quite noticeable, but not dramatic. The slow onset and mild properties of this steroid therefore make it more suited for cycles with a longer duration. In general one can expect to gain muscle weight at about half the rate of that with an equal amount of testosterone. A cycle lasting eight to twelve weeks seems to make the most sense, expecting to elicit a slow, even gain of quality mass. Although active in the body for much longer, Deca is usually injected once or twice per week. The dosage for men is usually in the range of 300-600mg/week. If looking to be specific, it is believed that Deca will exhibit its optimal effect (best gain/side effect ratio) at around 2mg per pound of lean bodyweight/weekly. Deca is also a popular steroid among female bodybuilders. They take a much lower dosage on average than men of course, usually around 50mg weekly. Although only slightly androgenic, women are occasionally confronted with virilization symptoms when taking this compound. Should this become a concern, the shorter acting nandrolone Durabolin would be a safer option. This drug stays active for only a few days, greatly reducing the impact of androgenic buildup if withdrawal were indicated.
