Hallo people, new member here. Have a few questions, would appreciate some help.
A little history, 40 years old. Been seriously lifting for 20 years. Was always a guy “new” people asked are you “on steroids”. But I never touched any. I give credit here to having had the luck to learn about training, eating from the right people, good genetics and the will and discipline to implement what I learned and lead a gym lifestyle.
About 5 years ago, training/results didn’t go further the way I was used to. Thought, yeah, ok, it’s normal, I am not so young any more. Don’t want any more kids so I decided to do a first ever, test e only cycle as laid out here:
**- Week 1 to 12: Testosterone enanthate every 3.5 days (500mg/week total)
**- Week 1 to 12:hCG @ 250 iu every 3.5 days (500 iu/week total)
- Week 1 to 14: Arimidex @ 0.25mg every other day (From day 2 up until PCT starts)
But as a “responsible adult”, had my blood work done before it, which revealed primary hypogonadism. Never did that cycle. Realized I had almost all low T symptoms since like forever, and only my iron will in every sense led to having the body I was almost always happy with. Waited a little after the shock diagnosis and started TRT 3 years ago.
I was lucky. Started with 62.5 mg test-e s.c. e3.5d and despite some advice against it, with hcg mo-we-fr each 250 iu. Daily cialis 5mg. No AI. Felt like a superman from the beginning, been never once tired in my life since then, never made a change in protocol. No side effects whatsoever. Boodwork always great, except for HCT-up to 48, but I never donated. No bruising, no shortness of breath.
Since then, in these 3 years, added probably >7kg of new muscle mass and have even less body fat now(I weigh 94 kg/180cm). Vascularity on a whole new level.
So now i’m thinking, the time is right. Wanna try it for 12 weeks, see what happens, maybe live a blast & cruise life if all goes well. Don’t wanna experiment with other compounds, simply wanna see how I do on test only for the first time. I of course understand, no PCT would be needed.
So my questions for starters, are:
- Since my 2 x 62.5 mg a week put me in high normal range(same with estrogen), do I simply inject 250 mg e3.5d i.m. and continue doing my normal trt s.c. injections at the same time-which would make it a “625 mg cycle/week” or should I do only i.m. 2 x 250?
- I would like to keep my hcg 3 x 250iu/week, hcg makes me feel awesome. Is there anything that would speak against that?
- Should I use arimidex as I already wrote, 0.25 mg eod and when yes, till when, end of week 14? Or leave it and see how I do without it?
Have everything else on hand, in case of side effects.
Thank you very much.
