First Cycle! How's Everything Look?

So I’ve been planning my first cycle for some time now, just wanted your guys opinion to see if there were any holes in it. I’ll be running a Test Enanthate only cycle.

Week 1: 500mg E3D
Week 2: 250mg E3D
Week 3: 250mg E3D
Week 4: 250mg E3D
Week 5: 250mg E3D
Week 6: 250mg E3D
Week 7: 250mg E3D
Week 8: 250mg E3D
Week 9: 250mg E3D
Week 10: 250mg E3D
Week 11: OFF
Week 12: OFF
PCT:
Week 13: Clomid 50mg ED + Nolva 20mg ED
Week 14: Clomid 50mg ED + Nolva 20mg ED
Week 15: Clomid 50mg ED + Nolva 20mg ED
Week 16: Clomid 50mg ED + Nolva 20mg ED

Adex: .5mg EOD

Since this is my first cycle should I frontload the test or not? Does the PCT look ok? Should I taper the Adex down coming into PCT then stop? I couldn’t find a definitive answer on this, I did find that I should take about .1mg for every 100mg of test.

If anything looks weak or needs changing please let me know, thanks in advance.

Side Note I originally had this planned as a 12 week cycle, but after suggestions from this board I decided on a 10 week cycle.

I like it, although the adex dosage might be a little high for you on just 500mg of test. Start at .25 EOD and see how you respond.

I, and this is just me personally have to run adex 7-10 days after last injection.

Any reason for not using HCG? Its a mild cycle, but some ones going to eventually ask you why its not included.

Overall looks good.

Thanks for the feedback on the Adex. Actually in my plan I have written down HCG is included. I didn’t include it in this because I’m not 100% if I’ll include it although I do want to. I’m trying to find a research chem company that’s legit I can get it from. If it is a necessity then I will get some before running my cycle. I just see a lot of people running cycles without it.

I would taper the adex down before pct. also your pct should start two weeks after your last pin. You could frontload if you want, personally I like frontloading

So taper the Adex during my two weeks off then stop and start PCT?

Taper you adex down week 10 and 11(if needed at all). PCT starts 14 day from last injection.

Ok got it, thanks. Got the 14 days, last injection will be on Wednesday of week 10 so PCT would actually start on Wednesday of week 12. I just wrote-out OFF for 2 weeks to make it less confusing.

Ok so I think I found a source for HCG and figured out how to mix it with bacc water and what not.

Week 2-10: HCG @ 250iu’s 3x’s week

Look good? Should I take it past my cycle or stop once test is finished?

Hcg looks good I would run through the two week period stopping 4-5 before pct

Week 16: Clomid 50mg ED + Nolva 20mg ED

During Cycle:
Adex: .25mg EOD. Taper @ week 10 maybe even 11 (If needed)
HCG: Start week 2 @ 250iu 3x’s week. Stop 4-5 days before PCT.

One final question then I think I’ll have everything I need to start. HCG, sub-q or IM? Which do you guys prefer?

Sub q

Thanks a lot BUDs, very helpful. Hope to start a progress thread once everything starts coming in and I start up.
