Just another perspective on what you may or may not decide.
This weight came on because of quarantine?
So… Your not happy at 275lbs and looking at a cycle to help you get fit?
I get why you may look at a cycle to help get lean. If testosterone is decreased with age, you can fall into a sand trap where estrogen takes over and it becomes a very hard fight to dig yourself out despite hard training and clean eating.
Can you do it without cycle? Can you accelerate results on cycle? It depends on your metabolic chemistry and makeup as with everything. You will have to test this out and come up with your own result findings. But BE EDUCATED!
Increasing Test and blocking estrogen due to high body fat can overcome some difficulties. However… You have to be willing to put in the work!
No reason to put Nitro methane in to a top fuel race car if your going to just idle.
The cycle you propose is good. Do a 12week cycle. If your trying to loose weight and get better muscle development, I would cut carbs to 150. Protein seems OK if your not tiring to mass up.
- I would check your blood work if possible.
Estrogen, Testosterone, Prostate - PSA, Liver, Kidney, Cholesterol, CBC with blood count, Metabolic panel, Thyroid, Glucose and insulin resistance, A1C, blood clotting factor, urinalysis, Blood pressure. Whats your testosterone/estrogen ratio? Is your fat consuming your testosterone and converting it to fat manufacturing estrogen?
This would be a better guide to map out a strategy of how to be safe or address issues that may hamper goals, or at worse, save your life.
Steroids are catabolic to your good cholesterol “HDL” and raises bad cholesterol. They can also cause polycythemia leading to blood clots and high blood pressure.
So you may want to add 6-8g of salmon oil per day. It helps to raise HDL and thins the blood. It also helps with inflammation. Turmeric and vitamin E are also blood thinners. Good while on cycle.
Steroids also covert to DHT. This can lead to decreased hair follicle blood flow causing thinning. DHT also can cause the prostate to enlarge. So you may want to add about 1g of saw palmetto. It blocks DHT.
If you can get HCG, use 100units every 3-4days to help your balls from shrinking or shutting down while on cycle.
Make sure you have a good PCT plan. Make sure you have a good PCT plan.

Be dedicated or don’t do it. Cardio will help to mitigate some of the negative effects of cycle.
Eat clean, avoid alcohol.
Good Luck! Train Hard!
