For a few months now I have been doing research about my first cycle, and have had my heard set on a standard Test-E only cycle of around 500mg EW for 10 weeks followed by the p22 taper.
Lately I have been reading a lot about Equipoise and it really interests me. I don't see as much discussion on it at this forum as on other steroids, so I am making this thread just to ask what you guys think of a EQ-only cycle for a beginner's cycle.
I have heard elsewhere that an EQ-only cycle is good for a beginner because it is basically Testosterone Lite in its anabolic and aromatization intensity. Also, I want to run it alone because I want my first cycle to be just ONE compound so that way later on I can tell what side effects came from what drug, rather than not knowing what caused what. Also $$ is an issue.
The release of EPO resulting in added stamina, along with the ravenous appetite also seem like amazing side effects.
So, what do you guys think of an EQ-only cycle, and if it's not too much trouble, what would a good dosage and time length be for such a cycle? What would PCT look like? I assume I wouldn't need an AI during the cycle, (unless I find out I am really, really prone to estrogen) but is the taper protocol only for test? Would just a simple 40/40/20/20 of nolva 2 weeks after my last injection be fine?
Here is what I have drawn up so far:
Week 1-12: 500mg EQ EW
Week 14: 40mg Nolva ED
Week 15: 40mg Nolva ED
Week 16: 20mg Nolva ED
Week 17: 20mg Nolva ED
