First Cycle Help

I’m looking for some guidance on my first cycle. I’ve been weight training for about 4 years, eat a balanced healthy diet that works for me. I’m 6’4" 217lbs. with 12% body fat looking to put on some pounds of lean muscle. My plans are doing test-e with deca for 6-8 weeks(nothing too long). I’m wondering about what to expect for recovery time and any other advice you might have.

deca isnt that good for a first cycle, its very very inhibitory, add to that it takes around 45 days after your last injection to be significantly out of your system its really not a good choice for a 6-8 week cycle. Test E is even kinda long half-lifed for a shorty like this… so heres my advice.

Test prop around 100mg ed for 6-8 weeks with a good AI like femara at 0.5mg ed. Throw some dbol in there to start off if you want. Get your pct in order too. Just my 2 cents. Goodluck!
