I finally got into a position where I'm ready for my second cycle. Long story short; my work was placing enormous stress and time loads on me. After my first cycle, I did a very poor job of working to maintain my gains, because the rest of my life was just too overwhelming. I've managed to simplify things considerably. (it helps that my wife graduated from her master's program and got a job teaching)
One thing that definitely went wrong with my last cycle is that I started eating really crappy for the last three weeks. I put on a lot of fat, so I've spent the last 6 weeks or so dieting down. I'm a little stronger than where I started last time, but about 15 pounds lighter (202). I still have a bit of belly, but it's not too crazy.
I started pinning last week. Here is my plan:
Weeks 1-9, Sustanon 200-250mg
Weeks 2-9, Tren 400-500mg
Weeks 8-11, Winstrol 50mg per day
I'll start PCT with Nolva in week 12. I've got some research-grade, and I'm working on a connect with the actual tabs. A lot went wrong at the end of my last cycle, so I can't really swear on it... but, I suspect the research-grade stuff was under-dosed.
I'm ramping up my Tren and Test in weeks 2-3, kind of testing the waters on dosage. The Tren is Acetate, so I can back off or bail if it gets too funky.
I've been thinking about adding in some HCG, but I'm not quite sure about it. It seems pretty easy to come by around here, which makes me suspicious.
I'm open to any suggestions, tweaks, etc..
Oh, yeah... And, I did my first ventrogluteal shot today! I don't know why I'm so proud of that, but damn that was a scary one... I "get it" now... super easy once you know where it is.
**Edited to change length of Winstrol use***
