Bulking plateau

posted Apr 30, 2015 07:13:37 by Ddd
Im on my 8th week of test, and EQ, (250mg test eod, 200mg EQ 3 times a week)and ive already hit a major plateau. For the first 4 weeks I was gaining around 1kg per week, and barely had to increase my calories. Only 50cals per week. Now Im at a point where i havent gained any weight in the past 4 weeks, even though ive added 100 cals each week, 400 in total.
Obviously I need to eat more, but what is the reason that all of a sudden my calories need to go up more than 400 per day, just to continue gaining weight? Maybe a build up of something, or a drop in levels of something?? Do I just keep adding more and more calories until the weight goes up again? or has something happened which I need to look in to?

The weight u put on is nitrogen retention in the muscle for the first few weeks... if u wanna keep on gaining u needa up cals preferably around workouts.. stick to low volume as well

Its been almost 2 months since I originally posted that, and Im still stuck. Ive gone from eating 3200 calories, to 4300 calories, and ive still only gained 3kg in the past 2 months. Weight hasnt changed in around 3 weeks, and im still adding 100 cals each week. Should I up the test? Up the tren? I lowered the volume of my training, took a rest week, and make sure im sleeping enough. Not sure what else to try

You listed Test @ 875 wk, EQ @ 600 wk; an nothing of the "Up the Tren?"; please be more specific on all compounds in cycle. From what I gather is Test@875+EQ@600wk and a 6 1/2 lbs muscle gain in weeks 9 to 16 would be a good average gain on that stated Test/EQ run, especially if equipoise was used as a quality muscle planter. Good job there.

Yeah dude ur not gonna blow up like u did when u first started cycling. Especially if you dnt take enough time off between cycles. Change your gear up nore often and if ur not getting fatter dnt be afraid to up them calories to 10,000 a day if thats what it takes then jus do it. Not saying you need 10,000 but jus eat more.

Sorry. I forgot to add that since that original post, I stopped the EQ, and started up Tren Ace. Started at 50mg EOD, then 75mg EOD, now 100mg EOD.
Ok thanks. Maybe im having unrealistic expectations on the progress. It just seemed odd that over those weeks, there was no weight or strength gain, even after bumping up the food
