First off, thanks to anyone experienced reading/giving feedback to this thread. I’ll try to keep this simple/straightfoward with enough details to give people an idea of where I’m coming from.
Bio: I’m 22. I have been an athlete (multiple sports) my whole life, and have been lifting/training in different styles since I was 13. I know my body very very well. What I currently do is a mix of oly lifting, powerlifting, gymnastics, anaerobic threshold work, and things requiring overall athletic performance (you can probably guess- I’m just not throwing any names/brands out there). I’m currently at a level analogous to a minor league baseball player doing all he can to advance to the majors. I’ve never been one that people considered “genetically gifted”; all my success has come through diet/busting my ass. I’ve never done any PEDs. I’m looking to get more competitive, and feel that a cycle could help me improve my strength, power, work capacity, and overall athletic performance. I’m not concerned about aesthetics or bodyfat levels, that’s just an added bonus.
My diet is near perfect content wise, and probably 4000cal+ in volume. I consume 180g+ protein daily in the form of organic grassfed beef & buffalo, wild fish, canned tuna, Org. whole milk (raw/grassfed when available), free range eggs, and CFM Whey & Casein. The rest of my diet is 90% organic fruits and vegetables, a shit ton of oatmeal, potatoes, beans/brown rice, 2~jars PB a week, etc. Supplements are whey/casein, creatine,a ton of fish oil, Glucosamine/chon. & MSM, & a Multi.
5’7.5" (maybe 5’8" with shoes…)
*edit: 9-11% bodyfat
Overhead Squat: 300
Clean and Jerk: 305 (3 wheels coming soon)
Everything/everyone says test is the normal beginner cycle, makes sense. I also wanted to pair it with Equipoise to increase strength, and also because I feel I could benefit from the increased RBC count for oxygen delivery in sustained efforts. Thoughts? Coincidentally, my contact gets both, Sustanon 300 and Eq 300/mL(not sure the exact name). Both 20cc vials.
Sust: 300 2x/wk, weeks 1-10
Eq: 300 2x/wk, weeks 1-10
HCG: 250 2x/wk, weeks 3-10
Nolva: 10mg ED, weeks 3-12
20mg 2x/ED, week 13
20mg ED, weeks 14-16
Also thinking of a lower dose/longer cycle, edit* 500 of each for 12 weeks, HCG 3-12, two weeks off (cept 10mg nolv ed), same PCT. Thoughts?
Any and all advice/suggestions appreciated.
