Hey all. 27yo, 5"7, 165lbs, BF 15-20 probably.
I started my first cycle a couple months ago. 300mg test Prop/ 300mg Tren A. Was going to run for 10 weeks, but after about week 6, I did not gain any weight, gained a little strength (probably all mental), so I figured what I was taking was fake. Gear came from a supposedly legit UGL. Anyways, I stopped taking it, bcuz of this, and also bcuz I caught an Upper Respiratory Infection from my job and couldn;t workout anyways. $700 bucks down the drain!!
I lost all of my water weight (about 11-12lbs in 2 weeks). I feel tiny, lol, more-so than i Did before i even started the cycle. I do however look leaner. YUK lol.
I am wanting to start a lean bulking cycle, but do not know what options to take. I am looking to put on size and gain strength while still looking thin (little to no water retention). I hate the PIP/EOD injection of prop, so will use Test E or Cyp.
Thinking of: Test E/Tren E - 500mg/wk
Test E/Var - 500mg/wk, 60mg ED
I do not want to spend a CRAZY amount, and I want to retain all/most of my gains from the cycle. I am by no means an expert, so any advice/input is appreciated. I know that i want a high anabolic/low androgenic cycle, for about 10-12 weeks.
