I'm 30 years old, have over 10 years of gym experience and after all those years I've reached a 232lbs with about 16% BF (6foot). Not great I know, but I gave it the best I could (having a lot of work on the job, house hold etc).
A few months ago I made the switch to the dark side. It was a hard thing to do for me and I gave it a lot of thought.
The cycle I was on:
Week 1-6: Test E 500mg/week (250 on Monday and Thursday)
Week 7-12: Test E 750mg/week (Due to unexpected holiday plans by the wife I had to cut my cycle short from 16 weeks and so I decided to bump the dose).
I used Arimidex @ 0,5 EOD since about week 4 because I had itchy and sensitive nips. As from the sides went away I lowered the dose to 0,25mg E3D.
My diet was on the spot 3200-3500kcal (50% protein, 30% fats, 20% carbs). No carbs after midday. My training routine was 5 to 6 days a week strength training for 50 minutes (all out) and about 30 minutes of medium intensity cardio afterwards.
My goal was to shred some fat and increase muscle mass.
This is the last week and my gains are FAR below expectations... So I fear my gear was no good..
I had almost no weight gain (2 pounds give or take), but experienced some strength gains on some bodyparts (noticable but far from "freakish" as stated on many forums). I do look a little leaner.
The sides were shrunken nuts, some acne here and there, a lot more aggression and libio.
I was not very pleased when I did a new BF test and found out my BF had INCREASED with 1% while my total weight was almost the same.
I have found a new source (some1 I know very well) and he told me to cycle a Test Prop with Tren A (EOD injections for both) and some Winstrol depot.
Now for my question:
My gear might not have been completely bunk, but surely underdosed (Iranian brand). My PCT will start in a few weeks with Nolvadex (40/20/20/20).
Is it a good idea to bridge into the new cycle with 250mg Test E/week (for some weeks till I get the new gear). Or should I PCT with Nolva, wait some time and then start the new cycle? How long should I wait then?
Thanks for reading and the advice.
