Planning to start my first cycle in a few months, need advice on certain things.
My current stats:
Weight: 165 lbs [74 kg]
Height: 6" [183 cm]
*BF%: Around 16% *
Current nutrition: Clean bulk, 5 meals a day, about 4000-4500 calories in total.
50-30-20 Carbs-Protein-Fat ratio
Working out 5 times a week, I’ve been up by 20 lbs for 5 months, with noticeable muscle gain (some fat as well unfortunately). I’ve been stuck on the same size the last 2 months though, even though I’m increasing my calorie and protein intake each week.
Goals: Reach 185 lbs by the end of August with maintainable, quality muscle and no fat gain.
**Planned cycle: **
**Test Prop 100mg EOD - Week 1 - 8
Proviron 50mg ED - Week 1 - 8
Nolvadex 40/40/20/20 starting 3 days after last pin
“hcg question below”
I chose prop instead of E because I don’t mind pinning eod, in fact I enjoy it for some reason, but at the same time I want to feel it quicker and also get it out of my system quicker after the cycle ends, so that’s it. 8 weeks instead of 12, because from what I’ve read and heard from people in person, about 80% of the gains come in the first 8 weeks, while after that they slow down. The proviron I’m not sure if it is strong enough to prevent gyno, but I’ve read some not so good stuff about arimidex, so I’d rather just be cautious and use the nolva if I feel my nipples getting itchy.
My only big question is about hcg which i’d like to include, as I’ve read so many conflicting opinion, I’m not quite sure what to believe. Some say to start at the beginning of the cycle, some say to start two week into cycle when testicular atrophy becomes apparent, some use it before PCT and some use it during PCT, and everybody has their fair share of arguments as to why their timing is the best, so I’m still quite interested in what you guys think.
That’s it so far, any advice and constructive criticism is more than welcome, thanks.
