Hi all, first time posting here.
I have been watching a ton of videos online, and have read a bunch of threads too regarding a first cycle, I know I want to keep it simple and do 500mg of Test E p/week for 12 weeks.
It is the AI and PCT that confuses me. I have chatted with someone who can get me some stuff, and was told I do not need an AI and can just take Tamoxifen if I start getting gyno symptoms during the cycle, whereas most other places I have read said I should instead take 0.25-1mg Arimidex every other day (which confuses me as that is quite a big range). Some places even say to only take an AI IF I start developing gyno or high estrogen like symptoms.
What would the advice be for on cycle support if needed?
Also with PCT, some places again say just take 40mg Tamoxifen daily for 2 weeks, then 20mg daily for 2 weeks. The person I spoke to recommened this alongside 100mg/50mg Clomid. What is best here?
Lastly, I have read some places say to take HCG, other places (including the sticky here) list it as an optional extra.
Little background on myself, I am 29 years old. Have been training for about 8 years, always natural. I am in good shape, about 5"11 and 175lb and would say I am around 10% bodyfat currently.
