I am 26 years old, been lifting since 14, on and off as far a how serious, but always lifting. I have done 1 precious cycle of test/deca with good results, and stupidly 3 different small prohormome cycles when younger. The last cycle was test/deca roughly 5 years ago. My bloodwork looks good, everything pretty normal.
My lifting is solid and I have my diet down. I’ve bulked for quite a while now and gotten a little more fat than I would like, but strength gains were best I’ve had since I was 16, I’m natural but ready to add in enhancers again since I feel I’m close to genetic potential, and I’m mature enough to do everything right.
I am going to do your typical 12 weeks 500 mg test e with AI as needed/nolva PCT while cutting to keep all the strength and size I’ve worked so hard to get, and maybe even build a little on top.
Right now for me to lose 1.5-2lbs a week I need roughly 2700 calories a day (40/40/20) or close to it. My main question is how much should I alter that amount since I’m going to be taking the gear? I know since my metabolism will speed up and protein synthesis will greatly increase, I’ll be able to eat more food while cutting in turn keeping more muscle.
I’m a very experienced lifter, but not as much with the PED side. I’ve researched a ton, but I know it’s different than actually doing it more than a couple times. And I’m ready for the next step for my physique.
Thanks for the help!!!
