Ok… ive received my stuff in the mail and i’ve now got about 3 weeks to straighten my cycle out before i get started. Here’s some numbers so you guys can critique me, as well as some questions afterwards.
10 weeks Test cyp at 500mg a week
33 days of Anadrol, 75 mg a day.
.25 mg a day of nolvadex throught my cycle.[/quote]
Nolvacex is 1) Not dosed at 0.25mg a day, Arimidex is - 2) Dosed at 20-60mg for estrogen antagonism and lastly 3) NOT what you want to run during your cycle. Choose Arimidex (AKA Adex, AKA Liquidex, AKA Anastrozole)[quote]
Ill be starting the adrol and test together at the beginning of this cycle. The adrol comes in pills of 25 mg, so i was thinking of taking one in the morning, and two a hour or so before my workout. Does this sound correct? Also, does one weekly injection of test work best, or should i do two injections a week?[/quote]
I would be wary of the quality of the drol dosed in 25mg tabs, it comes as 50mg as standard, UGL or not in most cases.
Your test is to be dosed twice a week, equally split at 250mg a shot. You WOULD be better off doing 8 weeks with a frontload, but you seem to have made your mind up… the reason is more time to gain - more time with peak blood levels and less time on so easier recovery.
Secondly, the nolvadex is for potential gyno problems as well as pct. however, ive heard that nolvadex throughout my cycle my possibly cause a slight loss of gains, so is it ok to wait and see if i get any undesirable side effects before beginning? [/quote]
If you choose Nolvadex during your cycle then the following will happen; You will build testosterone levels over time with your injections, then as the testosterone level rises the body will try to regain a ‘natural balance’ of male/female hormones and turn some of the test you inject to estrogen - the hormone responsible for breast growth, womanly characteristics, etc.
Using Tamoxifen will make the breast receptors unable to be used by the estrogen from the test so will help to a degree (not 100%) to prevent gynocomastia, but the levels of estrogen will rise and rise regardless.
Then once you stop injecting the testosterone, the body will not be making any testosterone naturally either, and the estrogen will become higher than the testosterone - causing a shift in hormones making your body hold onto feminine characteristics, female weight gain in the arse and hips - gyno, water retention, emotional distress, impotence etc… The nolvadex will NOT stop this, only covers it up temporarily… and the truth is anadrol at 525mg/wk added to 500mg/wk test a week will cause gynocomastia in you even with 80mg of nolvadex a day IMO, without an AI (The 3 AI’s are Letrozole, Arimidex and Aromasin)
The way testosterone is converted into estrogen is by an Enzyme called “Aromatase” - AI’s are drugs called “Aromatase Inhibitors” - they stop this Enzyme doing its job, thus STOPPING the conversion of test to estrogen, making the likelyhood of all the sides listed above a hell of a lot less likely. The three AI’s listed are able to prevent aromatisation by 80% at the least.
Now you choose… Nolvadex or Arimidex?[quote]
Also, beginners question here, will novadex usage during my cycle decrease its ability to get my natural test production going again PC?[/quote]
They are all beginners questions, you ARE a beginner like it or not. As for the last question, the answer is no - but it isnt the best drug for estrogen control whilst on cycle. As i explained.[quote]
Thanks a lot for your comments.[/quote]
Make sure you read and understand the comments and take them on board, you are lucky to have been spoonfed the info above, but i suspected you were fundamentally mistaken in your knowledge and needed an AI-101 post.
Good luck, and dont trust everything a mentor says even if he is big - steroids do different things to different people, and his advice is dated - there are better ways to administer and control AAS these days (the last 10 years).
There are some guys who can build massive physiques on massive doses of aromatisable AAS and not need an AI - but they are a minority. Dont count on that, and even then many of those men would need some estrogen control (not blocking) when adding Anadrol to Testosterone… it is a combo renound for gynocomastia side effects.
