Planning on running my first cycle in a couple months, in the process of planning / acquiring and wanted to have my proposed cycle double checked by some of the more experienced guys here.
Bench: 315 x 3
Squat: 405 x 3 (needs help)
Deadlift: 405 x 3 (needs more help, haha)
I’ve been “lifting” since I was 12 (middle school / highschool football) and lifting seriously with my diet in check for the last 3-4 years.
Currently consuming ~3000 calories on lifting days, roughly 250g carbs, 300g protein, 75-100g fat. I eat the same 7 things day in day out, just adjust the carbs or fat intake based upon the day. I can easily lower or raise my calories since my diet is so simple (boring?).
Training is on spot, following a Mountain Dog training regiment 5days/wk, fasted steady state cardio anywhere from 3 - 5 days a week depending how I feel.
Wk 1 Test E, 750mg (Frontload, will probably do 500mg Sunday, 250mg Wednesday)
Wk 2-8 Test E, 250mg 2x/wk, 500 mg/wk
Wk 5-10 Winstrol 50mg ED (Taken in morning weeks 9 and 10 while T is naturally lower)
AI and SERM
Wk 2-8 Adex, .5mg ED
Wk 10-13 Nolva, 40/40/20/20
Now, a couple of questions.
Since the cycle is somewhat shorter, HCG shouldn’t be necessary, correct? I can get it if I have to, but it’s not available from the sources I’m currently using/trust and will cost quite a bit extra if I include it (due to order minimums).
I have pre-existing gyno, fairly slight but still there from puberty. Mainly instead of a very noticeable lump (although there is one), I just store a lot of fat around the nipple. Any additional precautions I should take given that I will most likely be very prone to agitating pre-existing gyno, or will the Adex taken from Wk 2 be fine? Also plan on taking the Adex from the start to help with water retention.
Third, I have quite a bit of clen already lying around. Would it make sense to throw it in with the last two weeks of the winny only after I’ve finished pinning the test (even though I know its still active for ~10 days)? Kind of confused on the proper protocol for this, or if it’s even necessary or worth it… I know about the proper way to dose clen should I include it. i.e. 20mcg/40/60/80/100…/80/60/40/20.
Thanks in advance for any advice or criticism.
Edit: Added lifting stats. Also, is their anything I could add in that might help with joint pain? I’ve never experienced any real joint pain aside from a little bit of elbow / shoulder pain when I bench heavy, which I rarely do anymore. Aside from another AAS. I don’t want to complicate this any more than necessary for a first cycle.
