I started my first cycle a few weeks ago. I started really low as to carefully understand how each substance affected me. I'm injecting 250mg test-e each 6 days. the first 2 weeks were pretty good, effects were mostly mental. I felt more alert and motivated, and less prone to negative thoughts. As far as strength, I didn't go up by much, I wasn't looking for that, just a leaner physique without losing muscle, which I did achieve (by the 5th week), hence I didn't increase my calorie intake. My recovery time was minimal though, as my joints (felt absolutely perfect)
I was worried by estrogen side effects and started running anastrazole (arimidex) during week 3. some people told me to not even do it, that the test-e dose was low enough. In fact, I wasn't having any side effects, but I still took by week 3 thinking ahead about PCT. I was taking 0.125mg EOD. The last few days I have bee feeling a bit more "sensible" emotionally speaking. Also, my libido has gone to jack shit from sky high the first few weeks.
I'm away from home and can't get bloodwork in a reasonable amount of time. Do you believe I should drop the arimidex completely? Up the dosage? I have nolva on hand, too.
any input will be appreciated.
