    depends what form, your water intake, amount you're taking

    if you're over taking monohydrate, some may settle outside of the stores and collect water giving you that swollen look

    yes you will look poofy and no you aren't going to gain mass + lose body fat at the same time, with a few exceptions which have been mentioned 100 times

    1. Drugs
    2. Overweight

    because lifting weights is better than cardio. You exert more energy, therefore burning more calories. Understand?

    unless you have some kinda thing going on with ur doctor he probably isn't giving you more than 250-300mg every 2-3 weeks. So it's really not making too much of a difference

    I get 5ml vials a month and do my own shots I do 200-300mg's a week.My doctor doesn't have me go to his office to do shots nor did he teach me he just gave me the prescription and tld me where to shoot but he is a highly respected endocrine doctor in FL.

    what part of FL are you from?

    I have a hard time beleiving a doctor will put his license on the line and just say poke the needle here and inject. There's more to it than that. Also a doctor that doesn't require bloodwork every 3-6 months? ...you need to hook me up with this guys name so I can talk to him

    Miami,FL I was on years of LH and FSH stimulating meds but nothing bounced around docs before I had to go outside of my med coverage to see this guy.He's done wonders tho the past 2 years have been great I haven't hit weights till the last 2-3months but he helped me alot.The amount I'm doing now is just to help for a bit I don't stick to it like that a normal dose is 100mg a week and the blood levels stay consistant cause test e last 10.5 days.I just have the option of cycling high and reducing to normal since I wont have to do pct.

    5ml of test e(delatestryl) is 104 bucks at the pharmacy been thinking of getting some 10ml test e vials from a local hookup for about 30.State of Florida is trying to fight me in the courts again cause they hate to pay for my med insurance and meds but I'm considered a chronic case.

    :rofl: it's gonna be funny when you are huge and walk into to pick up your HRT. I'd kill to see the look on the pharmacist's face

    and damn that's a kick ass deal for 10ml

    work out for a few months and then take supplements.

    same goes for you car. Do you install turbokits/superchargers when your car as 0 miles ? no.

    so workout and break your body in and then use supplements.
