HI, guys. I've recently posted first enanthate thread but I could procure neither enanthate nor cypionate of good enough quality and didn't want to buy underground stuff of questionable origin. So basically I have to stick with either propionate or sustanon 250 from local drugstores. And even propionate is very difficult to buy.
So it looks like sustanon contains very long acting esther (and a little bit of short esthers), and I have to wait about 3 weeks after last injection to start PCT, so I thought that maybe 8 weeks will be too much for that and cut the cycle down to 6 weeks. But to get concentrations to the optiumum level right from the start there's a frontloading now with first shot of 400mg instead of just 200 so it's at least 6 real weeks instead of just 3-4.
Also, I know that an ampule of sustanon 250 contains 250 (who'd have guessed) mg, and I'll be wasting 50mg with each shot, but that doesn't really concern me.
"I'm 28, 5'8", about 175lbs, about 15% body fat. Doing bjj/grappling 5 times a week and lifting 1-2 times a week. 1 rep max for bench press is 253lbs.
Planning on doing this first cycle off-season to gain a little weight (and strength) and test how my body reacts to extra hormones before maybe doing anavar+supporting test cycle for the competition in autumn/spring season." - from original thread
So, it is:
1) weeks 1-6: Sustanon 250 200mg 2x times a week (400mg a week total). First shot is 400mg instead of 200
2) weeks 1-6: arimidex 0.5mg every other day; week 7 - 0,25mg eod
3) weeks 1-7: HCG 250ui 3x times a week (750ui a week total)
1) weeks 10: nolvadex 40mg a day
2) week 11-13: nolvadex 20mg a day
3) weeks 10-13: tribulus 750mg a day
also 3 g/day fish oil
I also plan to switch to lifting 3 times a week for this period and cut down grappling to 3 times a week.
I have already tested my baseline hormone levels (everything there was at the panel- blood lipids, all hormones in the list they had, minerals etc)- no results yet. And plan to run another blood test on week 2 to correct AI dosage.
So the question is- does 6 weeks make sense at all?
Is sustanon usage ok for the first cycle?
Is HCG on week 7 needed?
Is 3 weeks enough for the decanoate to clear up so I can start PCT? I've seen some conflicting data on its half-life- some places state it's 15 days, some give no more than 10.
Will 2 shots a week cause significant spykes with ~30mg*0.8 of propionate in each shot?
is week 7 arimidex usage needed?
