Soooo, I thought I’d researched well enough only to realise late in the day that I’d screwed up before I’d even started.
I focused on managing sides when looking into things and I’d not fully understood some of the terminology, specifically around shutdown.
Basically I assumed that shutdown was managed via PCT and very nearly kicked off an oral only cycle of Anabol and Stanabol. I was prepared to manage the liver risk with supps and sacking off alcohol. However, now I’m better read (I’ll keep TNation as my sole source of info from now on) I understand that without a Test base, I’ll lose what I gain, so it’s simply not worth it.
So, back to basics, I want to run a Test only first cycle. I don’t want to run it for too long and I’m looking for moderate gains, nothing too severe but enough to educate my brain and my body, so I can then look at a 2nd with the Dbol and Winny, if I still wish.
*What Test is best for a) 1st cycle and b) a short(ish) cycle?
*If I purchase 250 mg/ml (10 ml) and run 500/week, with Sunday afternoon and Wednesday night before bed, how many amps would I need to purchase to match my cycle?
*AI, okay I know next to nothing about this, I assume it’s an oral, does it carry usual Oral sides or not. This is my biggest fear as I know so little.
- I’ve got both Clomid and Nolvadex as well as the winny and dbol, I’m guessing for Test only, all i need to Nolva - correct??
Finally, a bit about me.
*46, cranky and fed up (so please keep replies helpful as I don’t tolerate bullshit well. I’m here for help, I know I need help as I nearly screwed up huge, so please play nice)
*Overweight due to a beer belly, although overall bodyfat isn’t too bad, my belly is like a pregnant hippo.
*6 ft, 100KG, BF probably 22% (see above)
*1 week into diet and feeling good. 2 weeks zero alcohol (my nemisis) and feeling good about that too.
*Last year my personal bests were: Bench 110kg, Dead 180kg, OHP 65kg, Squat 170kg but I’ve not done strength biased training for a while.
Current training intense cardio 4-5 times/week, hypertrophy training 2/week, strength training 3/week.
I train twice daily Mon-Fri. I can handle this fine, despite intensity. I stretch, roll, use EMS/TENS machine most days. I eat 2852kcal, measured and macro’d.
Goal, add strength and moderate size initially. If all goes well, reassess goal and then reduce cardio, increase calories and go for strength with a bit more size.
Sorry for war and peace post, I hope you guys can put this old man back on track after he nearly screwed up so badly.
