Advice on Test-E Only Cycle

I am running a 10 week Test Enanthate cycle. 500 mg/week.

I am contemplating a couple PCT ideas. Please advise.

Idea 1:

6+6 stasis and taper
100x6, 80/60/60/40/20/10

Idea 2:

6+6 stasis and taper +SERM
100x6, 80/60/60/40/20/10,

Nolva or Clomid during TAPER

Idea 3:

Test E 10 weeks at 500 mg, then Clomid or Nolva 3 weeks after last shot. No taper.

What do we think guys?

Thanks for the reply.
I’m used to your knowledgeable responses, as I have a duplicate account but I creatd this one solely for the steroid thread for anonymity.

Adex… maybe .25 mg EOD?

Also, the liquid nolva I get is from a company online that’s very Innovative. I’ve done 2 oral PH cycles before that’s why I’ve used Research chemicals before. Any problems that you’ve heard of with their nolva?

anyone?

I havent heard too much about their research chems. The only company that I have used are from the One best company that I have heard many good things about.

That adex dosage should work well, although everyone is different. Start it at about week three.

I have a friend who will be doing idea #2 but on a 4x4. He is using a little less test per week than you though.

The duration of the cycle is a greater indication then amount of gear used when determining the length of the taper. If your friend is running his cycle for 10-12 weeks then a 10-12 week PCT would be preferred over 8. It may not be a huge difference but when it comes to recovery every little bit helps.

To the OP: Just want to say thank you for the topic and being very clear. We are very much alike as far as the cycle. The PCT is what I am struggling to finalize. You explained the options clearly and as a result getting good coments from the board members. I am leaning towards idea 2. I have everything except for additional TestE. The biggest reason I like about idea number 2 is beacause of the smooth transition pshychologically. I fear the mental crash that could result from stopping cold turkey from the TestE. Thanks again and I look forward to some more comments from the board members.

Interesting post, 2thepain, would you care to explain the difference?

I feel that taking higher doses of AAS for shorter time will actually lead to less suppression of natural test levels than taking moderate doses for a long duration. My thinking is that after you go over a certain amount of exogenous test your body is telling the testes to stop producing. So even moderate amounts (500mg/week) will lead to suppression. If that 500mg/week is ran for 12-14 weeks your testes have been turned off for a long time. If 2 grams are being ran for 5-6 weeks then the testes are still turned off but for only half the time.

OK, I see. It makes sense.

So his cycle was saying 6 weeks on and 6 weeks taper? Is that what 6+6 means?

I believe that the 6+6 means 6 weeks stasis followed by a six week taper.

that’s correct.
10 weeks on, 6 weeks stasis of 100mg/week, 6 week taper.

OK, gotcha, 16 weeks total (10 weeks + 6 of test only) and 6 taper.

Cool, very interesting.

sorta, i think you might still be missing it.
its 10 weeks of full dose test (500-700mg)
6 weeks of 100 mg /week (very low dose, enough to get a boner)
6 weeks of tapering down from 100 to 20 mg/week

You’re right, I still did not understand, thanks for clearing it up!

I’m gonna do a lot of reading up on this. Good luck with your cycle!

Thank you much
