As we all know, deca and dianabol is the classic old school cycle. With good reason, this stack is awesome for size, strength, and quality gains. Deca also stacks well with any testosterone. Optimally, I have seen deca do wondrous things when stacked with both testosterone and dianabol (duh!). Deca can be used for cutting but this will be an individual matter-it makes some hold more water than others. For cutting purposes, the drug will mostly be used to elevate the nitrogen retention and protect muscle tissue. For this purpose, 400mg a week is often enough. If you are very advanced in development or usage, you may need 600-800mg when cutting. For bulking the previous stated upper range of 1000mg still holds. A dosage of 400-600 is probably sufficient for most users for all purposes (maybe less for cutting though-300-400mg/week).
Once we have added in the necessary testosterone, the next step is controlling the impending estrogen and progesterone activity that will result from the use of the Nandrolone hormone. This makes the use of anti- estrogens highly recommended; most will need an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI). However, if we suppress estrogenic activity too much, this can lead to complications; it can lead to sexually related side effects as well as damage cholesterol. Conversely, if we do not control estrogen and let the hormone run wild, high levels of estrogen can lead to gynecomastia , water retention and also negatively affect sexual function. Find the right balance of testosterone to estrogen and you will not have a problem when stacking Deca Durabolin.
