Hello, I am 24 years old, about 150 pounds, 5 7, 9-11% body fat and have been training consistently and correctly (including diet) for the past 2 years, but I have also worked out 2 years before that as well.
This will be my first cycle, and my cycle goals are to add 10-15 pounds of lean mass on my body which from what I read is pretty realistic. I want to use AAS because Ive been a hard gainer my whole life, and these past 2 years Ive worked really hard to gain this lean weight, but I feel like Ive hit a plateau now, 155 has always been my max weight no matter what I eat or how I change my routines.
Ive been reading around and obviously my first cycle will be Test-E only, I intend to do my blood work before/after once I get my cycle and research down, but I still have a few questions which Ill post at the end, but my cycle is as follows:
Okay, so my questions are:
First of all, a lot of the cycles I see that are Newbie friendly have Test-E going for 10-12 weeks, then a 2 week break to clear the system and then the PCT starts, this cycle I found took a lot of the PCT dr*gs during the cycle as a protective measure, with no 2 week break between the cycle and the start of the PCT. Is this fine to do; is there any benefit of doing this? Will it affect my cycle in any way? Or is the 2 week break between the cycle and a straight PCT preferred more than this?
A lot of cycles that I have seen take 500mg of test per week for 10 weeks straight, but I have seen some cycles that do a taper down Is there any benefit to this method, or should I just do the normal 10 week cycle followed by a 2 week break?
Another question I have is Arimidex vs Nolva, which do you find more effective?
My final question is in relation to D-bol, do you guys find that kickstarting the cycle with D-bol for the first 4 weeks at 10mg 3/d helpful in the overall gains of the cycle?
