What is the REASON for THIS!!!

I decided to take a few months off from lifting weights about 3 months ago, just started to burn out. Off course I was in between cycles, so I was off the juice for those 3 months as well. I didn't really workout, just a little cardio and light weight lifting during this time - nothing dramatic. I just started a cycle of test e (400mg/week) and Deca (400mg/week) a week ago (I know, why don’t you mix in some dbol – for me it is just too hard on the liver), and I plunged back into my rigid workout regiment - with a little bit of a different philosophy. I changed my reps from 6 – 8 reps / set to 8 – 12 reps / set. To give a little background of myself, I am 5’11 and I weigh 205 lbs (off cycle), 215 -220 ( on cycle). I have been off and on the juice for about 3 years now; before I started I weighed 170 lbs, nice and solids gains over the years. Over the last week, I have noticed some dramatic changes, just in a week of coming back. I know that Test e and Deca are slow acting, usually around 2 to 3 weeks before anyone starts seeing the effects. As an intermediate user, why is my body responding so well – is it because of the lay off, fresh receptors, attitude, or what? I am a bodybuilder who is just trying to learn more and more about this fascinating sport, all input would be appreciated!!!!! And I hope my experience will help others as well.

    well if you took time off then you must have lost some of your gains from before. That means when you started lifting again you regained the muscle back from before. When you lose muscle and then gain it back it comes back much faster then before this is something that I have heard called "muscle memory." Plus the fact that you are back on cycle probably increases your effort in the gym unconciously. And correct me if I am wrong but even though enan and deca are slow acting doesn't that mean that it takes two to three weeks to FULLY hit your system? I think even though people say that that there is still an increased amount of test in your system.

    You guys should utilise syntax's more, makes it a little more easier to read and take on board.
    As mentioned above about muscle memory plays a part. Your work ethic seems a little questionable. If it was more consistant and better then your gains would be better and more consistant.

    Please don’t question my work ethics, I work my arse off in the gym. But I do understand the word balance, too much of a good thing can be detrimental. I ask questions on this board to learn from people with a little more experience than myself. I hope that the purpose of this forum is to discuss and learn from one another. We should try to keep our criticism to our selves, unless it is constructive criticism. THANKS!!

    I think it was constructive criticism mate. He wasnt having a dig at you but he made a fair point, most people would train naturally for a while after coming back from a break not just jump straigh on the gear.

    You my friend are what they call a 'Bell-end'. I am only going off what you wrote which may i add i took my time to read through and give comment on.
    Only you will know what your work ethic is like and i commented on exactly how i read it.
    If you cant take constructive criticism then why post on here since you have the work ethic of a pack-horse, obviously?
