Deca seems to be a boring AAS and doesn't seem to get the attention like other compounds such as Tren. Still, I think it has it's place since plenty of guys use it and seem to like it.

I'm going to setting up for some Deca in the near future but wanted to hear from others that have use it and their experiences. I'm looking for real personal experiences here not just someone who read about it on line and wants to warn me about Deca Dick or wet gains. That's ok info if you have personally been through it though. I used it once with okay gains and also have a NPP cycle under my belt. Truthfully, that 500/500 Test NPP was a sweet ride.

Dosage, other compounds stacked with it if any, length of cycle and gains during the cycle would all help. Extra points for anyone who posts pics.

Deca is right up there with Tren as a go to however used for two entirely different reasons.
I use deca for bulking and Tren for cutting. One of the pitfalls with Deca is how long it takes to start seeing results. I counter that by frontloading and within a week, I am seeing results. My strength increased drastically. The downfall is that once you are off, you cannot handle the same weight and it is a mental game that you need to overcome.
I do hold water on deca, but no big deal. I usually lose about 5-10 lbs after the effects waned and the diet is the same. As previously stated, you need to wait at the beginning for it to kick in, and it is the same when you stop….. it is a gradual waning of the effects.
Although the Esther is the biggest difference between NPP and deca, I do not have the same reaction.
Deca is detectable in your system months after you stop using it, therefore I usually do not have back to back cycles of deca. ….. that’s just me though and no scientific reference.
My top three AAS are: test, deca and Tren.

Thanks for that info charger69!

Some things on my end. I know Tren can be used for both a cut or a bulk, always wondered why Deca can not be used for both. I'm not saying anyone should try to step on stage using Deca up to their show date. lol But if Deca sets the stage for muscle growth, it should work on both fronts. My plan is to be in a deficit during the Deca use. Trust me, the protein level will be higher, just lower fats and some more cardio.

As for slow gains, I'm good with that. 40 years of pushing weights around has taught me patience. I have also found gains that come fast seems to leave the building quickly.

You said you lose about 5-10 lbs after cycle. Is that quick and mostly water or just the gradual muscle loss that happens after a cycle? Also, what was did your cycle look like?

I love deca up to 12 weeks then it gives me headaches. I've ran it at 400 week and 600 week, not much difference. As stated previously the first 6 weeks you won't notice much but keep in mind that you will also keep gaining 4-6 weeks after your last injection. It packs weight on me but that's just me. I know several that like to add winny or var at the end to help shed the water. I get stronger off deca but prefer npp just because cycle is shorter and less water retention but they are both very good. Never had impotence issues with it but I have script for Viagra anyways so wasn't a concern for me.

I would say the weight loss is mostly water. After a cycle, your body tries to get back to homeostasis and hopefully that is with additional muscle mass.
I compete and do some pretty weird stuff trying to get the most out of the AAS.
My last bulk cycle was 750/750 deca and test. I would use anadrol 3 x a week. It was a great cycle even though relatively simple. I took the adrol 3 x a week so that I could take it longer. It made me full as hell.

back in the early 2000's I took 400mg of Deca weekly (the good kind from Greece) and I really liked it..... When I came off of it I started hitting Tren A twice a week so I never got any Deca Dick.

So far the best gains that I have held in my life are always from a quick 4-5 week cycle (No matter what it is) so Deca isnt really my kinda thing in the long run but I had to try it.

Gone as high as 600/wk and as low as 150/wk. Best growth for me was at 400/wk with 50mg dbol on training days. I ran the 150 for roughly the last yr after my shoulder surgery and have had pretty good muscle mass retention with limited lifting

How do you think that helped?

I have been trying to decide between running the Deca at either 600 or 900. The safe side of me is leaning to the 600 but I would like to for once see some real mass. I'm even willing to give up some of my summer cut look if I could just get that massive look.

The Test will ride at 500/wk regardless of the Deca dose. The length of cycle will be 18 weeks. I like the slow burn and the longer the gear is exposed to my training, the better I seem to do even if I run a compound on the light end.

With that, I'm thinking 600 is the way to go. I do put my time in the gym but lifting the big numbers is over now. Just looking for that massive size.

I've always liked Deca in my cycles. Typical dose is 200 - 600 mgs per week. Positives include increased strength, "rounder" looking muscles, and increased appetite. Negatives are non-existent for me.... no deca dick, no extreme water retention, no acne, etc.

Deca is not a drug that you can expect to see rapid gains with, at least in the dosages that I have used. As someone above mentioned, Deca and D-bol were the go-to stack for everyone back in the day, and it worked well.
