No need to get all worked up about someone trying to HELP you. You posted on here for advice and feedback, it's immature to then get aggravated at someone who gave you CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. If he was purely criticising for the sake of it then your attitude would be justified, but what he said was constructive.
I agree with you in that not knowing what your 1 rep max is, doesn't indicate anything about your training. I don't know what my 1 rep max is either, firstly because I have no one to spot me, secondly, knowing my 1 rep max isn't of any benefit to me. I know the maximum amount I can do for reps, which in my opinion, is all I need to know.
BigJJ88 was correct about the AI though. Taking an AI is not fast acting, having it 'on hand' isn't going to be of much benefit, by the time it kicks in, it may be too late. You should run your AI for the duration of your cycle, to help prevent any side effects from occuring. If symptoms are already occuring, you should use a SERM like nolvadex to try to help get it under control.
So to sum up; take an AI during cycle, keep extra Nolva on hand incase any symptoms appear, as well as using your nolva for PCT.
I do have a question however, what's your definition of '8+ years of steady training'? 8 Years ago you were 13, I'm not saying it's impossible for anyone to have been training since that age, but it would be surprising.
