I do compete and have placed top 5 in my past 4 shows. top 5 in 9 of my 12 shows. my water intake was high do to the fact I didnt want any kidney problems. I have held on to most of my gains losing an average of 3-8 pounds from all my cycles. I no longer touch orals due to the fact of them being so harsh on the liver which is why ive switched to IM. My two pure test cycles I ran 500mg for 10w both times. I did see decent gains however I had a bloated appearance. My diet is on point year round due to competitions throughout the year. For this reason this is why I was turned onto tren for its dry gains and appearance while on it.
