Hello everyone This is my 1st post here & I hope I get the same kind of invaluable advice that this forum is famed for…
A brief backstory -
I have had a terrible last 5 months with 2 serious back to back injuries that has really hampered my growth (both in my discipline & physically). It was a really frustrating period for me sitting at home watching my 3 biggest competitors surpass me & land endorsements which would have otherwise gone to me. My strength decreased rapidly coz I could not workout & my BF% shot up from the usual 12 to my current 18 bcz I was gorging on anything & everything in my frustration. Finally, after getting a clean chit from our doctor 43days back, I had started working out like a madman, 2ce a day, with great intensity but I can feel that my strength & endurance is nowhere close to the peak. With an all-important competition approaching in December, I just cannot afford to take it easy. Hence I have decided to go for my 1st ever cycle, a simple Test E cycle, to give me that extra something. Plus taking it now would mean it would wash out of my system by December…
Height - 5ft 7in
Weight - 72 kgs (Can’t afford to gain much coz it would mess with my speed & agility)
Gender - Male
Test E - Week 1-10 - 500mg/wk (2 pins a week, Monday & Thursday)
HCG - Week 1-12 (last pin 3days before starting PCT) - 500iu/wk (2 pins on the same day as Test E)
Arimidex- Week 1-12 - 0.25mg EOD
PCT - Nolvadex- Week 13-17 - 40/40/20/20/20
Clomid- Week 13-16 - 100/100/50/50
Will also take Liv-52, Milk Thistle, Taurine & Fish Oil during cycle
I am somewhat confused on the PCT. I had read about this combination of Nolva+Clomid in most places during my research but I recently read an article named “The Perfect PCT” which mentions a host of other products in the 2 weeks before & during PCT - HCGenerate + Ostarine + Cardarine + Liver Supplement… What are your views on this?? Are so many things really necessary??
I normally don’t suffer from hairloss (maybe 5 strands a day here & there) but I keep reading scary things about Test causing massive hairloss to those predisposed to it. So, will taking Finasteride right from Day-1 be a good safeguard?
What are the parameters in a blood test that I have to get examined on, before, during & after the cycle? Lipid Profile, Liver Function Test, Free Test etc are some of them, I guess. What are the others that I need to get tested on??
All these would be so easy if I could just talk to our coach about it but it is strictly no-no & I am on my own in this. Please provide me with your insights…
