I am following the basic bulk first cycle guide from the steroids subreddit.
So I’m doing test e 500mg per week. Injected e3.5d.
I messed around a bit with LGD 4033 a week before the cycle, then I got my hands on some var which I took for 12 days (40mg ed) to Kickstart the cycle, and then I took LGD 4033 again for another 7 days. Not the smartest move to mess around with that and it made me feel bad. Var wrecked my lipids and LGD crushed my SHGB. Now I will stick to test only for the rest of my cycle.
In week 3&4 I felt super lethargic, slept like 10-12 hours every day, and it felt like my joints were dry. High sex drive and no bloating. No gyno symptoms either.
What do you think about my blood work? Especially the lipids and estrogen.
I haven’t taken any AI or serms yet. Should I start it?
I got myself some supps and started doing a lot of cardio because of my lipid profile.
I got fish oil, citrus bergamot, psyllium husk, started eating a garlic clove a day, and cissus quadrangularis for the joints.
Note that I started TRT 4 months ago. The week before I started the cycle I injected 250mg test e to create a transition between my TRT dose and the cycle dose.
My bf% is quite high, I’d say 20-21% right now.
Another problem I have is cramps in the shin splints and lower back. Especially in the morning when I start to be active. It seems to improve though.
