First Test Cyp Cycle. Pros Advice Welcomed

Starting my first cycle think I got everything right but I would appreciate any tips. Start off my my stats.
20 years old.
6’3.
220lbs.
been lifting on and off for about 5 years.
last couple years were very serious.
Bf about_ %14.

I was thinking to start with

W1-w2 test prop 100mg eod_ test cyp 100mg twice a week.
W3-w8 test cyp 250mg twice a week.
Then wait 2 weeks and pct with nolva
40mg for 2 weeks the. 20mg for 2 weeks.
Also 0.5 mg arimidex eod while on cycle?
Depending on how I feel I will continue to 10 or 12 week cycle. Also if I cant get ahold of any clomid or hcg will I be okay doing this for a first cycle?..

20 years old, “last couple years serious” when you say on and off for 5 years? You should be able to make some good gains naturally if you perfect your diet and training.

If you insist on cycling; W1-2 do the cyp at 250mg twice a week, it takes time to build up in your blood (meaning when you increase, it will not come up to that straight away so to go from 200mg/week to 500mg/week after the frontload will still take time to get there).

You can do a HCG blast leading up to PCT or run it during cycle, it is recommended but not neccesary. Everything else looks fine.

When I say last few years serious I mean weight training to make gains and I think im at the point where im Platoing.
Ill keep the cyp up and the 100mg prop eod for the first 2 weeks looks good? Or shoukd it be more or less?

And I cant get any hcg. But thats just to make sure my libido stays high and my “boys” stay hanging low isnt it ?

there’s no way you’ve plateaued after 2 years. You’ve just reached the stage now where gains don’t come as easy.

I’m not one who believes you need to max out your genetic potential before using steroids (because no one ever actually does that), but 20 years old is awfully young.

I’d give it a few more years. There’ll be plenty time for steroids in your future.

Im sure I can make more. Gains naturally but im just looking to bulk up and put on some weight and get a good gain. I do t plan on getting too serious with anything other than test really.
My mind is pretty much set and I im going to start soon as for the money is already invested and im looking foward to the quicker gains. But

But on cycle arimidex, and a pct I am taking nolvadex tabs should I be taking some sort of liver pprotection everyday?

well if you’ve made up your mind to do it then drop the 2 weeks of prop. Won’t get much out of that.

Kickstart with dbol (30-50mg a day for the first 4 weeks) if you want something to get you gaining straight away.

The rest of the cycle looks good.

hCG would be nice so keep looking. It makes recovery easier and the better you recover the more of your gains you’ll keep.

Okay I feel more confident now having your feed back thank you. But should I take milk thistle or anything on my cycle or pct or both if my arimidex and nolvadex are tabs ?

Na, you’ll be alright. Liver damage from orals is overstated in my opinion but some N Acetyl Cysteine and Liv 52 couldn’t hurt.

As far as I know, Adex and Nolva don’t damage the liver. Dbol potentially (really don’t think it’s likely) could though so if it’d give you peace of mind get the NAC and the Liv 52.

Thanks so much for the help. Really I did my research but im clueless at the same time lol

What if all i have is the prop and cant get dbol right now would it be okay to use the prop and cyp for the forst two weeks together?

Like prop 100mg eod and cyp 100mg twice a week? So its still 500mgs a week im taking in the first two?

Agreed, plateau means your diet needs to increase, or your training needs to change.
