I started 4-AD-EC 4 days ago, and already I am beginning to notice a change in my appearance. My muscles seem fuller, I am slightly more agressive and my sense of well-being has increased noticably. No strength or weight gain yet, but I am only taking in maintainance + 700kcal per day so I am not storing tons of glycogen or and only want to gain around a pound of muscle a week. My real goal is to gain 5 lbs of muscle and lose 5lbs of fat, which would make a noticable difference in my physique. I think this would be acheivable in 8 weeks provided I keep a 40/40/20 diet with good EFAs and solid training.
My question is would it be worth it to use arimidex at .25mg EOD throughout the 8 week 4AD EC cycle? I am extremely sensitive to estrogen, and I have used arimidex +yohimbe in the past to get rid of chest/lovehandle/hip fat with great success. Will using arimidex throughout and post cycle help to alleviate a dramatic HPTA crash? Keep in mind that money is not a concern--I already have the arimidex and can obtain it for little money. I seem to do better WRT body composition when using it, especially off cycle. Some external input would be welcome.
Any comments are appreciated.
