As others have said, you don’t even get receptor saturation til 3-4 weeks. 8 weeks should really be the minimum run, also your kcals seemed to be at a deficit (possibly a considerable one). Don’t know your age or height so I’m going to guess and say 5’10 and 35… that would put your RMR around 1650 kcals ” Total calories about 1500-2500 per day.” so you may have in fact been eating under maintenance at bed-rest levels. Lifting just a few days a week you should probably be around 2500 just for maintenance (given 5’10 and 35) which means you should have been eating around 2800-2900 and on cycle for 8 weeks to see worthwhile results.
The best course of action may be to utilize enough non-hormone steroids, and during the last phase of the cycle, using fast acting substances like testosterone propionate or trenbolone. Oral dianabol may also be effective as it can clear away quickly from the body. Also, during the whole cycle, efforts should be made to keep the levels of estrogen down. This can be done with the help of compounds like formestane and arimidex . Taking non-aromatizable steroids like winstrol and trenbolone is also a good way to keep estrogen levels under control.
