Hello! I am new to this community. I am 20 years old and want to begin my first cycle.
I have been lifting on and off for a few years. I just recently started taking it seriously. I am currently 20 y/o, 6ft 184 pounds. I'd say my BF % is somewhere between 15 and 20. My stats aren't anything impressive, but here are my 5 rep maxes for compounds:
DL: 290 Squat: 280 Bench: 185
I am just worried about side effects like acne, gyno, etc. A few of my friends have been cycling and have had 0 side effects. I also don't want to screw up my natural test levels and end up on TRT in the future. I am going into the doc's office tomorrow to request bloodwork.
I have done a fair amount of research so far and have discussed this with a few friends. I know how to construct a maintain a proper diet/training regime. Here's what I am currently looking to do:
Test-E 250mg/e3.5d for 16wks
250 mg HCG e3.5d for 16wks
Pharmacy grade aromasin 12.5mg/week for 16wks
PCT = Clomid 25/25/25/25/25/25/25/25
My GOAL is to reach my natural limit faster with the aid of Test-E. So, telling me to reach my natural limit BEFORE hopping on my first cycle would defeat the purpose of me cycling.
Also, is it possible to retain a lot of the gains on a Test-E only cycle?
