Ok iron and I tend to see the same issues and say similar stuff, so yeah what he said!
I will add in a few things just from my own pov.
First test e should at the bare MINIMUM be run for ten weeks. Really should be run between 12-15 weeks. If you already have your stuff and getting more is an issue just know that enanthate takes 2-4 weeks to kick in depending on dose. Then it really doesn’t get to the sweet spot where you are harnessing it’s full potential until week 5-8, again depending. I would stretch the length of the cycle out. If you can not get more test then possibly lower the dosage to stretch out the length of time. Really your stated 500 per week is good if not ideal you just need a few more weeks on it to harness enanthate properly. If you end up having a few CC’s left at week 12 there is nothing wrong with adding a week or two to just finish out the bottle, but provided it was suspended properly and you do not contaminate it with re using needles then half a bottle can be saved for another cycle.
Iron said it but I want to re say it, testosterone only for the first cycle. Seriously you are going to be blown away with the results so no need to make managing side effects harder for no real reason by adding a second compound. Plus chances are you will do another cycle so knowing how your body reacts to just testosterone will help you identify any issues you might have with other compounds down the road. Basically on you first stacking cycle (ideally the first stack would not happen until your third to fifth cycle) if something wierd happens you will know you didn’t have that issue with just test so logically it must be the new compound causing the issue.
You have Aromasin listed after your cycle and during HCG therapy. If you end up needing or just using aromasin during the cycle then MAYBE you might need it the week after you stop pinning the test. You will have a nice build up of test by the end so if you had issues on cycle then the week after you stop I would still use the Aromasin but at a lower dose. If you find out you are super sensitive to estrogen and you need a hefty dose of aromasin on cycle then maybe the second week after you stop pinning test you might need a very reduced dosage level of aromasin but once the Nolvadex PCT starts you should not take any form of AI aka aromasin. It can actually work against your recovery.
If you do use HCG on cycle or just after the cycle before PCT you need to know that it makes you aromatize test that no dose of aromasin can stop. It does it in your balls somehow and if that amount of estrogen gives you issues then you will need a SERM like Nolvadex to prevent that specific estrogen from causing gyno. Now I am not sure how much estrogen will be produced or if it even will be enough to cause gyno but if during the cycle you use HCG, you get gyno, then you keep increasing the aromasin and it doesn’t stop then most likely it is the HCG/“ball estrogen.” You will need a SERM / Nolvadex to deal with that gyno.
I want to touch on PCT timing. I think you have the proper wait period but I like to cover my bases and it is all to easy to write something that two different people can interpret differently. Ok let’s say you do 12 weeks of test at 500 mgs per week divided into two equal shots. The Wednesday of week 12 you take the last shot. Count all of week 12 as “on cycle.” Then wait weeks 13 and 14 taking no test. On Sunday of week 15 then start PCT. Like I said I think you have it write but ever since I started dating a woman who’s first language is not English I have realized how easy it is to have someone not catch the intended meaning of a statement.
Just so you know week 13 you will still have high enough levels of test that you can still gain easy. Even week 14 you will still have enough test releasing from the ester to be well above natural levels, so don’t waist those weeks.
You should read up on the signs of high and low estrogen in men. You will need to watch for those signs weather you decide to use the Aromasin on cycle or not. Even if you decide not to use it on cycle I would have some on hand just in case. I am not sure if you have already bought your supplies yet so i figured I should make the point.
If you decide to use aromasin on cycle or even if you have to start using it because of an issue 25 mgs per day is way to high of a starting point. 12.5 mgs twice a week is the starting dose. Let’s say you do not start using it at the beginning of the cycle but you get gyno/puffy nipples so you want to start. Start with the 12.5 mgs twice a week. Take your first dose then wait and take your second dose. If at the end of the week you still have puffy nipples then go to 12.5 mgs EOD. Do the 12.5 EOD for a week. If you still have issues then up the dosage but still do it EOD. Don’t panic at the first sign of gyno and start taking 25 mgs every day, you will crash your Estrogen. We need Estrogen, we just need it in a healthy window.
If you crash your Estrogen from using too much aromasin you will most likely be very tired/lethargic during the day and your joints will be dry and popping. If you crash your Estrogen stop taking the aromasin for 3-4 days then start up again at a lower dose.
I recommended you read up on the signs of high and low estrogen in men. You will need that info as you dial in your aromasin dosage. That is if you end up using it or needing it.
If you are lost on what size needle to use I recommend 25 guage at 1-1.5 inches. The 25 guage seems to be the right size to keep you from injecting too fast and causing PIP. Basically 25 guage is a way to idiot proof self injecting oil suspended hormones.
In closing please don’t forget to get pre cycle blood work. You need to know your base line so you can judge your recovery.
