I plan on competing in my first powerlifting meet come late January, and feel that I am ready to begin supplementing with either a pro hormone or steroid. I understand adequate research is required for on cycle and post cycle needs, but I would like to pick the minds of more experienced users to help me achieve my goal. I currently weight around 180 and plan on competing in the 83 kg weight class, hoping to come into the meet as close to 83kg's as possible to optimize performance.
I am currently in a slight deficit and am shooting to weigh around 175-177 come December so that I can slightly increase weight into the meet and enjoy the christmas gains via apple pie and ham. My question is, what would be a good first cycle to increase strength and practically maintain weight, and if my meet is January 25 when should I begin so that I can peak into the meet? My maintenance cals are around 3100 at the moment, so how would I need to alter calories so that weight gain is minimal if any? Appreciate any feedback and I am excited to take my powerlifting to the next level.
