    what dose of deca for noticeable strength gains

    Gentlemen,
    Iím on week 5 of a deca /test experiment.
    Weeks 1-5 I was dosing 200mg Cypionate every 5 days with 200 deca.

    Iíve noticed 0 strength gains on major lifts. However, I have noticed less pain in the joints ,a big plus. No deca dick, no noticeable side effects.
    Iíve been advised to increase the Test, but shouldnít deca be providing some strength gains by now? Or is the dose simply too low? Adding test may add strength gains but that would be the test doing it, not the deca IMHO.

    I try to get away with the lowest dose of everything possible.

    Is 200 mg or Deca simply too little for strength gains for someone who has been lifting 10 )+ years?

    Thoughts?

    I'm 49 y/o; 5í11íí 200lbs. I've been lifting 3 x week for 10 years, to supplement my JJ training.

    If you wanted a little faster results you could have ran npp instead of deca. As far as the test deca ratio alot will say twice the test but I have run 250mg of each equally and had excellent results and no sides.

    I think give it another week. As far as deca dick I never get that and am 46yo so dont go by that.

    I am finishing up a blast using 350 mg/week of NPP and I got scary strong. Its all relative, never been a particularly strong guy for my size, but Im handling weight I didnt anticipate touching.

    Worth noting, the phenylprop ester is nearly as heavy as the decanoate ester so the active amount of nandrolone you get is pretty much equal whether you go deca or NPP. I would venture to say 300 mg deca would have netted me similar results.

    I always run more test than deca as I get the deca dick if I dont. But everyone's different there. That being said I've had great join relief at 200mg/week. I start getting big when I run it at around 400/week though.

    I've ran Deca for decades and have found that 300 to 400 a week works great..Deca is a nice compound that doesn't give you a bang it's working,rather a linear increase of strength and recovery..I would bump to 300 and see how you respond..It take a bit to kick in..

    300-400mg of Deca with Test is great! I like a little Provi sidecar.

    Deca is one of those great drugs that you donít have to run much. 200mg for joint pain, 400mg for muscle growth.

    The joint relief is real, I can definitely feel the difference. I may try to bump it up to 300. My TRT doc is saying 200 deca 400 cyp... but I don't want the cyp doing the work, I want the deca to do it.

    Yes, I've been adding 50mg proviron per day since the start, to help things along. I am not sure why I'm not getting stronger. Could be I've reached a natural max for my body and I'll have to go higher in terms of deca or test to push beyond that limit.
