Critique My 1st Cycle

I’m planning on starting my first cycle after 2 solid years of maintaining a strict diet. My cycle is as planned:
Week 1-8 300mgs Test C split in 2 150 mg pins every 3.5 days
Week 9-16 500mgs Test C split in 250mg pins
Week 1-16 .5 Arimidex eod, adjusted as needed (also have cabergoline and letro on standby just in case)
Week 18-? Nolva 40/40/20/20, and then 10 until I run out
Possibly HCG last 4-6 weeks, still undecided
I kind of want to stick to one compound for my first cycle to get an understanding of how my body reacts to it.
Open to any and all suggestions and criticisms. Thanks guys!

Adex may be too much then too little later. It needs to match serum T levels which typically means matching your T dose. You may need 1mg anastrozole for every 100mg T per week.

Some are anastrozole over-responders who will crash E2 on expected doses. If that happens, you stop adex for 5 days then resume at 1/4th the expected dose.
