Care to indulge a newbie entertaining the idea of his first cycle?
I’m basically looking to address bits and pieces of stubborn fat, which haven’t been responding to my routine as effectively as I’d like. Prominent herein is a roll of loose fat hanging from my stomach
I’m 31, 5’10" tall, and weigh 70 kgs. Been working out for 2 years now, but largely with the intent of losing weight (I started at 100 kgs). For the last few months, I’ve been focusing on maintaining weight while improving strength. The routine, thus, centres on bike commutes, 5x weekly weight training sessions, and 5k runs over the weekend. Reasonable strength and endurance improvements achieved in the process, without packing in more weight or inches. On the diet front, I’m eating at a small deficit to my TDEE, and trying to take 1.8-2x bodyweight protein.
If it matters, my PBs are still very modest (but I’m proud of them still, having started at 0) - Squat 100 kg, BP 75 kg, DL 150 kg, OHP 55 kg, and 5k outdoor run at 26:57.
A couple of juiced up gymbros and their suppliers suggested that I look into a ‘mild’ cycle of Anavar and Stanazalol to attack the stubborn flab, with a PCT of Nolvadex. It’s a tempting idea, but I’m not quite sure. I’ve ofcourse gone through several weeks of low-key online reading, but that’s hardly good education.
Obviously I have no idea about anabolic steroids, and even my supplement usage is restricted only to whey isolate.
Does anyone have any insights? More specific questions I have are:
Do I even need to bother with juice? I don’t intend to turn pro, all I’m really looking for is a fit body. At the same time, I ain’t getting any younger, and the impatience sometimes gets to me.
Even if I do juice up, will it have a good chance of helping my specific trouble spots? Or is the long slog the better option?
Is the Anavar + Stanazalol + Nolvadex suggestion sound? I haven’t entertained lengthier dosage discussions so far to keep unwanted conversations at bay, but it would be good to have some orientation in case I do head into that direction.
Ofcourse, feel free to shoot me with any more of your finest.
Thanks in advance!
