Hello T-Nation I’m new to this forum and had a few questions. I started my first ever steroid cycle consisting of Test-E @ 500mg containing bi-weekly injections plus 50mg proviron ED which started on 9/3/12(I’m 3.5 weeks into the cycle).I have a few questions and would appreciate some feedback. My stats before the cycle are as followed:
Training for 3 years consistently. Before that on and off for 3 years(I was concentrating on fat loss more than bodybuilding,before the last 3 years).
Cycle is as followed:
Wk 1-12:Testosterone Enanthate 500 mg/wk (250mg/Monday,250mg/Thursday)
Wk 1-12: Proviron 50 mg ED
PCT: I’ll be using a test taper/nolvadex but haven’t figured out dosages of both.
~Diet consists of 3000-4000 cals/day containing 210 + grams protein, 500 + grams carbs, fats vary.
-As you can tell, I haven’t really been keeping up with nutrition 100% as I should during this cycle because I’ve never went too in depth in the last 3 years to begin with,even though I put on 25+lbs of LBM in the last 3 years. I usually concentrate on getting enough calories/protein in the day when I’m “lean bulking”. But any pointers will help a lot.
- I have yet to inject into the glutes region because its hard for me to reach that far and I have no one else around to do it(I’ve been doing it in outer quads/delts). Am I missing out on the test filtering 100% in the bloodstream?
2.As of 10/6/12 I’m up 13 lbs but 11 lbs is water bloat for sure because I gained that 11 lbs all in the first week!( I’ve never realized how much of water bloat would appear from testosterone compared to a PH cycle I did back in late 2010. And its very noticeable on face).Is this low weight gain of 2 lbs LBM normal 2.5 weeks into a Test cycle?( I do appear to be a little leaner). My strength gains have gone up a lot. Many times I’ve had this aggression of lifting heavier weight than the previous workout. That being said strengths are going up mildly fast(is that even a phrase?)
-I have Nolvadex on hand as needed. I’ve already had to use it a couple times due to sore nipples/ring forming around nipples.
-Any help/feedback/pointers etc. would help out a lot guys!
