Dbol kicks in very fast...you should notice it in a few days...a week at the very most.
two days tops for me...love those little pink pentagons of joy...:D
Everybody is different. I am a good example. It took almost two weeks to kick in for me. I started gaining water and then the strength hit in week 3.
To be very honest...I use to like Dballs as a rookie....I loved the weight gain,and strength....but I realized it's only water weight,and after you discontinue use,all gains seem to disappear.So...I really haven't used 'em since....and I really don't miss 'em.....but,on the other hand,they are very good for someone to try,for the first couple of cycles...gains are respectable...
Two of my friends tried D-bol by itself and they got some wicked GYNO!!! Watch out bro. Thats why I have never tried it yet....that scarred the hell out of me. Get some anti-estrogens my friend.
