Right guys, I’m one of those boys that feels the need to post his thoughts and plan of action online as to receive recommendations and/or alterations from the experienced users of AAS. I have read the Newbie Cycling Thread which was very informative. Now, you’re probably thinking I haven’t taken it on board because I am under 25, however this isn’t the case. I am planning a career into the world of bodybuilding and feel that after 25 I could have missed some vital years, if you look at the standard of the top guys these days. (yeah the genetic elite, who may be younger than us but look better than we ever will) I have done one show before and that was in the Physique division 2 years ago.
So a bit about myself:
22 years old (competed at 20)
214lbs (competed at 173lbs)
I am going to include a recent pic (in the green boxers) and a transformation pic that saw me go from 193lbs 10 weeks out to 173lbs on stage, also another picture at 179lbs 4 weeks out)
I have trained since leaving school and properly for the past 3 years. I follow a strict push pull legs routine that I was placed on by my coach in the lead up to my show. (Aaron Curtis) Training every bodypart twice per week.
Tomorrow I have an appointment to have my bloodwork done by my GP who is aware of my desire and is looking to assist me in the way in which he can. I will update the thread with those results.
I think (may be wrong - this is where you guys come in) a blast and cruise is my best option. I am fine with being on Test for the rest of my life. It would go as such:
weeks 1-12 500mg Test E (alpha pharma)
weeks 1-14 .25mg arimidex eod
from that first cycle I would reduce Test E to 200mg each week for the duration of the cruise. question here - would I be better aiming for 250mg per week and pinning 125mg Monday and then Thursday and repeat? or is 100mg fine? then there is the question of the arimidex, would I also half that dose and continue to take eod? I am looking into N2Guard and plan on purchasing and using that for the duration of blasting and cruising. I also plan on keeping Nolva to hand just in case.
Do I look to get down to the weight of 178lbs in the picture at the gym before starting my cycle? I would like to think I put on some muscle in the last two years.
I have no issue with diet or training. (I’m a PT who knows how to build muscle and then cut fat) I have a huge appetite so what I’m wondering is that if I was to hop on in say 4 weeks at 205lbs, should I just eat everything in sight (as to enhance the muscle gain - I’m not worried about fat gain) or should I keep this regulated at a clean yet effective (for me to gain) 3200 calories and see where my weight goes?
I am more than happy to engage in conversation and answer any questions you may have. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my ramblings!
