3rd Cycle Need Advice


#1

My next cycle-first time running prop
Deciding what to do for next cycle
Alright, about to start my third cycle, haven’t done any gear in 2 years. Last cycle was test e and var 12 weeks of test and last 8 of var.
What I learned in my first two cycles is I’m really gyno prone. Nipples always swell and get itchy last time stared to feel a growth underneath. After cycle it went away. For some reason after my first cycle when I finished pct I had no libido and lost quite a bit of weight. This persisted for about a month. Then last cycle I didn’t have that issue.

STATS: 26 years old, 6’3", 218 lbs, don’t know bf% but low. bench-375x1 deadlift 460x1 squat 410x1

brief background before i ask for help, I’m an athlete I’m fast and mobile and would like to keep it that way, obviously some fat gain is necessary hoping var keeps me hard and solid.

DIET:
8am-1 cup oatmeal
5 eggs
2 scoops whey
blueberries and greek yogurt
11am- 4 slices toast
1 cup cottage cheese
natural peanut butter

1pm 3 cups whole grain pasta
2 chicken breasts
1 cup spinach

330 pm post workout
1 banana
5 strawberries
1 cup skim milk
2 scoops whey

430pm
2 baked potatoes
2 steaks
2 cups steamed brocoli

730 pm
1 pack ground turkey
1 cup wild rice

1030 pm before bed
2 scoops of casein
2 tbl spoons peanut butter
skim milk

TRAINING

MONDAY- CHEST 5K RUN
TUESDAY- BACK
WEDNESDAY- LEGS
THURSDAY- SHOUDLERS/ARMS 5K RUN
FRIDAY- LEGS
SATURDAY-45 MIN CIRCUIT
SUNDAY-45 MIN CIRCUIT

i generally lift heavy (3-5 rep max) but alternate every third week to an overload of 10 reps of 10 sets with drop sets to shock the muscles.

POTENTIAL CYCLE

test Prop 100mg eod wk1-6
adex .5mg eod wk 1-9
HCG week 1-6 (need some advice on this part)
Var- 80 mg Ed wk 1-6

Pct 3weeks
nolva 3 days after last shot 50/50/50
clomid 3 days after last shot 100/50/50

letro on hand all cycle in case of gyno

End goal-hoping to keep ten pounds and add st least 50 lbs to all my lifts.

Never tried prop and couple buddies like the 6week in and out cycles. Say they find it easier to recover and keep gains. Thought I’d give it a shot.

Any feedback appreciated

It’s going to be difficult to add any mass with all the cardio in there, imo. It looks like you will be overtraining your legs too but maybe you have naturally big legs and not a concern. Since its only 6 weeks and seems like you love to run. I would drop the circuit training and only do one 5k run a week. Preferably not on a lift day. And keep it like that untill pct is over. Just a suggestion. Just think you would have better results with less cardio in there is all. However you want to do it.

250ius of hcg twice a week is standard protocal. Some have estrogen issues so keep an eye on that. AI dose looks good for starters.
