Just finished a 20 week cycle. Started off planning for 12 then 16 and finally went 20 because it just kept getting better.
I figure at 20 it’s probably time to pull the plug although honestly I don’t have any side effects, hair loss, acne or gyno.
The cycle changed a bit throughout but ultimately this is what’s I ran
1-6 - Sust 400 a week pinned EoD
7-8 - Sust 500 a week pinned EoD
9-20 -Test C 500 a week , Mon/Thur
12-16 - Var 50mg a day (split Am/Pm)
17-20 Var 100mg a day (split am/pm)
1-20 - 4.5 IU HGH a day in the AM
As far as Adex, it took awhile to get my estrogen in check but finished by taking 2mg a week and that put me in the zone. I did notice a great change in overall feeling, libido and energy when my E2 got into the proper range. Also I would take Cialis in the beginning for boner help but when my E2 got into range I was a walking hard on and haven’t needed it.
The Var gave me some massive and horrible cramping once I climbed over the 50 per day mark. Sometimes it was down right drop you to your knees brutal. I tried everything I could to combat this and ultimately found increasing carbs was the only way to help it. Not prevent it. I know this isn’t normal for everyone but it was for me.
The HGH makes my hands numb at night, and my feet will swell if I eat too much salt or drink alcohol. Quite honestly I think the HGH and the Var have way more sides than just the Test. Although I’m probably wrong.
My diet was “pretty” locked although I do Keto as a matter of choice. My body feels and performs better when I’m not full of shit and sugars. I consumed roughly 300 grams a protein a day. One third to sometimes one half of that from shakes.
Anyway all said and done I got pretty cut up, packed on a ton of muscle and generally feel it was an awesome experience. I know to the ire of some of the hardcore I could have probably trained harder, ate better and drank less but my choice to make, good, bad, or otherwise.
So here is where my question comes. The main reason I started this was I found out I’m going to be a TRT/HRT warrior for life as being 40 is well being 40. So as my TRT dosages of Test start to kick in in the next few weeks, how long before I “blast” again? The way I feel today I would be happy running 500 a week forever and my most recent bloodwork actually improved from before cycle. Also any idea what to expect when my 500 a week dose drops to 150-200 a week?
