Firstly - he is for all intents a natural, so other than his body mass affecting his pull, he shouldn’t lose too much strength IMO - depending on the amount of weight that needs to be lost.
However - as he isn’t in need of being 3% or dry as a bone, he has no need to stick to non-aromatising androgens only. He should run something like Test @ 500mg and Tren @ 350mg. (Masteron is also a good idea from you - i chose trenbolone simply as it is like a more effective masteron - better strength, better muscle, better fat loss, better results).
On those AAS and with the correct diet (ABSOLUTELY essential), he will likely put ON muscle AND increase strength while DROPPING fat. I say this as he has only done 2 cycles which in my book doesn’t make someone particularly ‘un-natural’ - as in he won’t be pulling more than he could have without using AAS.
If he always used Suspension and Halo it would be different
As for being bloated - there are two points to consider here:
First, with the CORRECT use of an AI, bloat is not an issue that would affect goals like this - not in the slightest. If he really does blow up with water - and some do, then tell him to use letro. that will fix it…
Secondly, bloating even WITHOUT an AI would not be an issue in achieving this goal.
It is a problem that people seem to think that the knowledge applicable to Bodybuilders applies to all. You wouldn’t feed a dog cat food would ya?!
Simply put, while water does weigh a lot, it will be dropped very fast post cycle and honestly would only really account for around 5lbs of weight if he used 500mg of a testosterone with moderate AI use (as a guess).
Your friend needs to understand that real world knowledge and specific application of AAS differs significantly from what most will take away from getting all info online, and this means Test will be very useful to him as a Powerlifter… ;)[/quote]
@whotookmyname- I’m not sure what the next weightclass would be. I’m really not all that familiar with powerlifting. The only reason my friend came to me with this is because we’ve had more than a few discussions concerning AAS and it’s effects on the body and he respects my opinion on the matter. I think that’s mainly due to the ignorance alot of people seem to have with PED’s. TBH, I am not nearly well versed enough in thier uses as I would like to be.
@Brook- Good advice as always. I had told him that most of the water would vanish with proper PCT, but I didn’t mention the letro. And he does bloat like a bitch, haha. But yeah, his previous cycles I’m fairly certain he was using adex.
I’ll take your suggestion to him because as you said, significant strength and muscle gains to be had with those compounds as opposed to Anavar. I’d imagine Anavar would produce very mild gains at best?
Looming over all of this is that he eats like a powerlifter, lol. I told him he needed his diet on point and there at least I’m pretty damn knowledgable so I think that, combined with AAS will give some nice results.
