After seeking some advice from some users on the forums and finding a decent source I’m all but ready to start my first cycle on the 5th Jan 2009.
Height: 173cm (5’8")
Weight: 172lbs (13/14% body fat)
Major endo. Around 2002 I was weighing somewhere in the region of 110-120kg (240-260lbs) and over 2 years cut back to 145lbs… To be honest, it was too much and in the quest for abs I over did it since I have a bunch of loose skin (yeah it sucks…) that can’t be dieted off. Got a clue and started training properly around 3 to 4 years ago. My split is
Mon: 20-30 cardio @ 120bpm, abs
Tue: Chest, Biceps, grip or forearm work
Wed: Quads, Hams, Calves
Thu: 20-30 cardio @ 120bpm, abs
Fri: Back, Triceps
Sat: Shoulders, Traps, Calves
I’m going to switch Thurs to a training day. The question is, right away or after the test kicks in? Also I squat and dead on Weds - the plan is to move the deads elsewhere (I squat first).

I thought about only running 8 weeks and no d-bol. I figure I might as well try and get the most out of my first cycle.
I have Nolva on hand. I was considering peaking to possible 600mg/750mg for a few weeks around weeks 8-10. Any thoughts?
W 1-12 Test Enth 250mg E3D
W 1-4 Dbol 10mg 3x/d
W 1-14 Adex 0.25mg EOD
W 13-17 Test Enth 50mg E3D
w 18 Test Enth 40mg E3D
w 19 Test Enth 30mg E3D
w 20 Test Enth 25mg E3D
w 21 Test Enth 20mg E3D
w 22 Test Enth 15mg E3D
w 23 Test Enth 10mg E3D
I’m still tempted to go for a straight Nolva PCT from week 13 for 4 weeks. I know some people have had great results from the stasis > taper but also from ‘standard’ PCTs… I’ll think this one over and it’ll probably be clearer during the cycle.
is 4000 calories enough? I’m eating around 3200 right now and still slowly gaining (around a lb a week). Understanding AAS gives a certain degree of wiggle room (how much I really don’t know) should I start higher (5000) and bring it down if fat gain becomes an issue? Also; carbs in meal 7? I’ve um’d and ah’d over this one for a while… It’s still very much in the post training window… would I benefit from carbs in this meal over fats?
What would be the best way to taper off adex running into the statis? Just run 0.125mg for week 15 or possibly extend this for another week to week 16?
I’m sure I have a bunch more questions (especially once the cycle starts), but I thought I’d throw this out there for my own benefit as well as those interested in reading these kind of threads; especially if the vets chime in!
