This is a cut and paste from another thread on frontloading, sorry if it’s confusing…it includes a few quotes but they contain some info worth reposting.
The cycle I’m kicking around (haven’t made up my mind yet) looks like this.
Test Enth 1g per week (500mg E3D)
Frontload Day One 1600mg (seems high?)
Followed by 500mg E3D
Weeks 12-16 PCT
I’m still open to suggestions here…a friend keeps suggesting Clomid.
so lets try this…
if my cycle plan is going to be Test Enth, 500mg every 3 days for a weekly total of 1000mg (1g), then the math for an appropriate frontload would be as follows:
1000mg x 8 = 8000mg
8000mg / 7 = 1143mg, rounded to 1100mg
1100mg + 500mg = 1600mg for the day one injection, bringing my blood levels up to par right out of the gate. The rest of the injections will be 500mg.
1600mg seems high compared to what I have been reading lately, considering this frontload will be the start of my first cycle (12 weeks of Test Enth only, followed by PCT)
Any input is greatly appriciated.
I see no reason whatsoever to run 1g of test for 12 weeks as a first cycle. Cut the duration down. You can probably lower the dose as well. 500-600mg/wk for 8 weeks with a frontload would be good for a first cycle. You may want to give some stats as well.
I will transfer all of this into a new thread as well but here’s some stuff…
25 year old male, 5’8", 180lbs @ 12%bodyfat
Training for 5 years
Strength coach/personal trainer
Looking to gain mass (breaking 200lbs at 12% would be nice)
Diet is in check and training is on track, but after 5 years I feel I have finally found my genetic limits.
Recent bloodwork shows normal levels on all stats (cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides, and test was normal-low)
No pre-existing conditions, kidney problems, liver problems, or metabolic disorders.
Initially I was looking into a two compound stack, such as Deca. I decided to minimize the risk of interaction by going with the Test-only cycle for the first run. The 12 week timeframe is just the most common cycle length I have found and seems appropriate, but my experiance is limited. Also, the 1g a week was a result of the compromise of not using a two compound cycle. I want this first cycle to be as effective as possible and from what I have read, the 1g a week seems like a moderate amount for a beginner.
