    Why Deca instead of Test

    I'm planning a cycle (currently on cruise). I'm going back and forth so many times that now I'm just wondering why, other than joint benefits, someone would run Deca at all with test or as a replacement. Why not just more test?

    I can also understand wanting to avoid hairloss issues. OR if it doesn't gyno as much as test, which I don't think is known to be true exactly, all things considered. Or if someone got less gyno with Deca than test in their experience

    But in terms of muscle building, what advantage would Deca have over test for hypertrophy or recomping in your experience, or what advantage would a combination of Deca and Test have over test alone?

    Thanks so much for indulging my simple question!

    Why Deca instead of Test

    Deca and test would be by choice! A bit more test to keep and sexual sides away{if any: I donít usually get them}. Just based on use. Nothing more to add as I have never used more Deca than test or Deca alone.

    The main reason to add stuff to test is because the higher the dosage of test the more sides you get, with all AAS in my experience you get past a certain dose the benefits start to decline and the sides go up so there is basically an optimal dose for everyone where they get no sides and the benefits are also high. I do pretty good with test at 400-500 but I start getting occasional high blood pressure so I like to keep mine below 400.

    1. Nandralone (deca) is highly anabolic and not very androgenic at all, this means you won't get androgenic sides associated with DHT , hairloss, DHT related acne (there estrogen acne also but if you acne is DHT you avoid it with deca), body hair growth, libido changes, mood changes, I can go on but its a laundry list of sides from angrodgenic effects we get from other steroids that we don't really get from deca but you could just google it. Anabolism is what we want for building muscle and nandralone is very anabolic

    2. Nandralone is one of the most studied AAS and is proven very safe, it is frequently prescribed, it is bio-identical hormone as its been found in pregnant women so its not entirely synthetic.

    3. Joint pain relief, nandralone lubricates the joint and gives relief from joint pain, many are able to stop taking pain killers.

    4. Back on point #1 if your a person who has problem with angrogenic sides or testosterone you can run a lower test dose that you can tolerate with a little bit of deca and still get the anabolism you would get from running a higher dose of test.


    I have never experienced a negative side effect from deca even when I ran it at 500mg with test being only at 400mg. Deca is super powerful for building muscle, 300mg is a very effective dosage for me to put on weight pretty fast.

    What I am doiing now is running test + deca + primo , all of the safest compounds. If I want to do a blast and put on a lot of weight I put the test at 300-500, deca at 300, then run as much primo as I can afford. I am tempted to cheap out and do masteron instead of primo but I don't think its very safe, its not good for your kidneys imo.

    Lee Priest strikes me as a honest dude, and he said he would run Deca solo ? Not something I would do, but it has been done.
    D-Bol does a body good ...

    Why does Deca help with joints-- is it that it frees up Testosterone to aromatize into estrogen?
    I can't find any studies that show the mechanism of joint support or even speculate on that.
