Upping Test C

Hi, So I started my first ever cycle 5 weeks ago with the intention of doing Test Cyp 300mg/ml @ 1 ml per week jabbing once per week for 10 weeks. I am 5 weeks in and seeing some effects but no huge size or strength gain. Happy so far as no adverse sides but I am not going to go down the PCT route now. I have decided to go for cruise and blast. SO with that in mind and given the time of the year etc....
Do I increase the test level from 300mg/wk to 600mg/week for the next X number of weeks to make this a better "blast" then drop back to a cruise dose?
My thoughts at present would be :
Up the test c to 600mg/wk for next 5 weeks then a taper off 450mg/wk for 2 weeks then 300mg/wk 2 weeks then can i get away with 150mg wk as a cruise or will that be too low?
 
Opinions welcomed

    150mg/wk for a cruise is fine but tbh you'd be better using sustanon or tri test or somethign that's not just one ester 
     
    as for your cycle. you're only 5 weeks in to a cycle which should last at least another 5-7 weeks anyway so with the gear really only up to full strength for a few weeks you're not really giving it much of a chance. if after 5 weeks you're up 10lb then i'd be happy with that, if however youre only up 5lb then not sure i'd be too impressed so yes in that instance i'd up the dose to 600mg per week 
     
    see most of us can guess what we'd gain on cycles so you really need to be specific - i'd edit your post to tell us exactly how much weigh you've gained as you'll get more meaningful replies with that.

    Thanks Ninja,
    In terms of results so far I am happy that the test is doing what its meant to do. This was originally going to be a ten week very low dose toe in the water cycle to see how I reacted. Having never used before or pinned I went ultra conservative. The general feedback on here was that I could have gone higher from outset. The way I am feeling is great and after reading some threads about cruise/blast I am now thinking PCT will not be a sensible route for me. With that in mind I was thinking that having seen no adverse sides at 300mg/wk I could up the level for a few weeks rather than just continue at this dose the ntaper down to a low level cruise.

    well you've certainly done your research man. starting off low to test the side effects is what i'd have suggested too but if you feel ok then yeah by all means up the dose. also you've been smart IMHO with just sticking to one compound and learning how you react to that one steroid

    Thanks I took long enough to take the plunge and as for the reasearch you and the other guys on here were a massive help. Do you think tapering down from 600mg will be beneficial or will it not make much difference? In my mind a taper down to a cruise level will be less harsh and let me play with levels

    tbh man if it were me, i'd just do 600mg one week and then drop down to the cruise straight away as the test levels will gradually drop anyway. your method is less harsh tho as may allow you to retain more gains as the drop will be more gradual so it's certainly not a bad plan. stick with what you have planned IMHO
