Ok so this is my first post but i’ve been browsing and researching on here for quite a while.
Figured i’d do a post laying out my cycle plans, with some before and after pictures too, to see what you guys think. So here goes:
This is my second cycle, first cycle was a 12 week test e course last year (600mg per week) with some Winstrol ran for the last 4 weeks (50:50:75:100), finished with some Nolva and Chlomid for PCT. Fairly standard first cycle by all accounts, sides were pretty minimal joints got a little dry towards the end on the winny but that’s all. Saw average gains from the test but nothing explosive (maybe 4/5lbs over 8 weeks before winny).
However, the winny was crazy - i felt so full, hard and strong. I realise I should have benefited a lot more from the test than the winny, which leads me to think the gear may have been crap (Zion labs test e 400).
Anyway, on to this year. Decided to jump right in with the tren this time (curiosity has gotten the best of me, i’m aware it’s heavy for a relative beginner but i don’t think it’ll be too much as long as i’m keeping dosages fairly low and monitoring sides properly etc).
The gear i’ll be using is all Pharmatek (with holograms etc on bottles so it appears genuine and my guy sorts it for a lot of locals who swear by it). Going to run test e for 12 weeks at 250mg per week (injected once per week). Initially this was going to be higher but decided to keep it lower in an effort to keep tren sides at bay.
Will be running tren at 350mg per week for 9 weeks, was initially planning EOD injections but due to the half life and the opinions of most i’ve spoken to, opted to man up and go 50mg ED.
Plan on front loading the test with first jab at 500mg, with tren following 7 days later. My friend has HCG and Armidex on hand if need be, but if all is well I may not use (as cycle went well last year with no sides and a quick recovery).
Considering throwing some winny in for the last 4 weeks to help with the shred but I will see if it’s needed at a later date. So overall cycle plan will look like this:
Weeks 1-12 Test E (250mg per week)
Weeks 2-10 Tren A (350mg per week)
Weeks 10 - 14 Winstrol (likely 50:50:75:100)
Weeks 14 - 18 Nolva (40:40:20:20)
Weeks 14 - 18 Chlomid (100:50:50:50)
PCT due to start 2 weeks exactly after last Test E jab and the day after last winny tab.
I was a bit of a b*tch last year and didn’t get any bloodwork done (stupid, i know). However, as this is more of a serious cycle - i went into my GP. He is more than happy to run tests on bloods, kidney, liver and prostate. Booked in for my tests next week and he’s more than happy for me to come in for some intra and post cycle tests too (very helpful guy, i was just truthful with him). Assuming i get the go ahead, first jab is set to be 21st Feb.
I’m currently trying to cut up a bit so that i have a fairly lean base to build on. Currently hitting around 2300kcal per day (40%p, 40%c, 20%f).
Diet plan for cycle is to ‘lean bulk’ for the first 10 weeks, starting on around 3200kcal per day and upping it by around 100kcal per week for 10 weeks. Then the plan is to cut down and implement carb cycling techniques etc for last 4 weeks with the addition of LISS and HIIT every other day.
Training regime for the duration will be a 4 day rotation of Pull/Push/Legs/Rest (cardio and abs on rest day).
Will keep you all updated with info and pics. Any advice on the cycle, perhaps anything i’m missing or any recommendations with regards to alternate dosages and timings etc are welcomed!
