32 years old / 5’10 / 197lbs / ~13% BF
Started lifting 8 years ago at 135lbs, and got to 175 naturally before trying my first cycle 18 months ago.
First cycle Jan’18, Test E 500mg/w for 10 weeks. Gained 20lbs and maintained about 12lbs of that a full year later when I decided to start a second cycle. Took Aromasin at 12.5E3D, didn’t feel great, but didn’t feel bad.
Jan ‘19 10wk Test E 500mg/w with DBol for 4 weeks at the start. After reading Iron Yuppies post recently, I realized I was a prime example of why using it as a kickstart can suck. Gained another 20lbs, and have maintained 10lbs of it (10wks since last pin). Opted for no AI although I had aromasin on hand. Felt better than first cycle and no estrogen related issues.
Instead of waiting until January again, I’m eager to try and start a bit earlier this time. September or October. I feel great now, but will do labs prior to starting to ensure all is good.
Considering Test E + EQ
Test E + Anavar from weeks 8-14 or something to give orals another chance at the end instead of as a “kickstart”
I do have “higher” cholesterol genetically, and although the DBol really didn’t raise my LDL much at all, I still have that slight reservation towards orals. Although I like the “simplicity” of Test E with some anavar during the second half.
I did take Tudca and NAC during DBol cycle, as well as year round Fish Oil (4g), Niacin 1000mg, and RYR 1200mg for my cholesterol to keep it in check.
Basically just looking for options and advice on a decent third cycle. Nothing crazy, I’d be thrilled with keeping another 10lbs again when it’s all said and done. Open to other suggestions that I did not list above.
Thank you all in advance
