I've been dealing with some injuries as of recently. I partially tore a muscle in my forearm deadlifting about a month and a half back. I was thinking of taking 250mg of test a week to help speed up the healing. However, I cannot find any evidence that test helps recover from injuries. I've only heard that EQ and var do. But, I had a lower back injury that went away COMPLETELY after starting my first cycle which was 500mg of test e for 14 weeks.

Thoughts?

Almost all AAS will increase recovery

So do you think it'd be beneficial for me to do that then?

Test, Var, HGH. I've never read anything about EQ but it is a testosterone derivative so it wouldn't surprise me.

Test is highly anabolic which will help increase recovery in the muscle.

Either my wrist flexor or brachioradialis. I didn't go to a doctor because I don't want to pay a grand for an MRI and have them tell me to just rest. :) The arm that was injured had an underhand grip on the bar while deadlifting, to give you an idea how it happened. The last 2-3 weeks I've layed off completely from it and I managed to curl a 30lb dumbbell with it yesterday, with no pain. So, it's not horrible. It's been about 50 days since it happened though. You're probably thinking I strained it but I FELT the tear.

I'm gonna try to do some light back work tomorrow and see how it goes.

I read the same thing about test decreasing collagen synthesis as well, but only if it's 250mg+.

After reading Franco's post, HGH FTW. Too bad I cannot afford it.

I did 125mg last night and am planning on doing 250 a week for a few weeks and then bumping it up to 500.

When doing bent over rows or deadlifts use an overhand grip. I know that you are stronger with an underarm grip, but it can cause an injury to your forearm and bicep. That's how Dorian tore his bicep back in the '90's. I used to use an underarm grip, but switch to overarm about 10 years ago.

Good advice. Thanks man. A few days ago I thought the same thing and was telling myself I was gonna deadlift with both hands overhand when I get back to it. I'm actually stronger w/ overhand grip on bent over rows but I feel my lats engage more with the underhand grip. Either way, def overhand everything for awhile.
