Wanted to get input from those that have done this.
I'm cutting weight for a powerlifting meet three weeks from now. As of right now, I'm at 232 and want to compete at 220, with a 24 hour weigh in. Currently running 400mg Test Prop / 400mg Tren Ace a week. I'll be throwing in 60mg of Winny a day in the last week and a half, since I have some sitting around.
There's two pieces here:
1. Dropping some body fat while maintaining lean mass. I'm already quite lean, but I could stand to shave a % or two of body fat. I've never done this while on AAS before. My maintenance diet is about 250/250/100 (carb/pro/fat) all from clean sources and whole food (no protein powder to artificially bump up total protein numbers). To cut weight I generally keep it simple and just move towards 200/250/50 (training days) and 50/250/50 (off days). I'd expect that would work fine while on AAS too, and that being on will just mean I hold more LBM than I would naturally, and probably drop fat faster than I would naturally. Does that sound right? Any other considerations here.
- Water cut. I feel like there's two new variables here: aromitizing steroid dosages, AI dosage. I'd think that if estradiol is at 20 pg/nl, there's no reason to change dosage for either of those. I'd just do a water load/sodium and carb depletion water cut as normal, with nothing special. Any gotchas here?
