I have hit 27years of age and I look back on a life of weight training that began when I was 14…and since the age of 18 I have wondered ‘when will I be ready to try AAS?’ Every year I have thought ‘I could do more first…’ and I have. Changed training, lifestyle, increased knowledge etc. I have been reading various sources of information on steroids for over a decade now, usually in 3-4month bursts (before I decide to leave it again for another year).
Well, I feel I have reached that time. I have gone from 6’2 55kg (seriously!) to a steady 6’2 81kg naturally and hover at 7-9% and i do not try to stay lean. However I just don’t seem to be moving again…for a long time. I have actually been significantly heavier but not quite as lean/athletic, often feeling sore joints or shitty little injuries etc.
After travelling (and dropping back down to 80kg) I re-focussed and now strength is better, flexibility and mobility is better (thanks to Cressey and Robertson!) and I feel healthier than ever before but I really want to hit that 88-90kg mark again whilst keeping my joint health and mobility this time.
So where do you all come into the picture?
[“Get to the point!”]
I’ve read the steroid forum over and over but feel i have analysis paralysis. I have lost the ability to keep things simple, and every time i think I have regained my logical side, the ‘weight’ of my first cycle messes with my head.
I have access to a great range of products… Test (Cyp, Prop, En) Boldenone, Tren, Primo, Stana, D-Bol, Deca & importantly Nolvadex, Pregnyl…and possibly proviron. All from a very reliable and long term medico-competitive bodybuilder source and colleague.
I am not asking the T-Nation community to make a cycle for me, but for every answer I get I seem to come up with more questions. I am hoping that some of the thinkers out there like Bill Roberts, Anthony Roberts, Sapasion etc can help answer my questions as i make my big step.
Part of me just says to run with ‘400mg week Test-E for 12weeks with 10-20mg Nolvadex throughout’ but then… the mind clouds and I think ‘too little?’ or ‘suppression?’ or ‘gyno’ etc. What about using HCG? Then i read one post suggesting ‘no need for HCG’ and then another saying ‘better to be safe’. I re-read the ‘Steroid for Health’ Articles and think ‘maybe 8weeks would be plenty?’… you get the point.
I know ultimately I have to take responsibility for my decision however I want to know i did everything possible to educate myself first.
I work as a physiotherapist & personal trainer (i hate that term)and am undertaking my Master of exercise Science (Strength and Conditioning) so feel free to use detail.
Given my occupation/goals I would like to add 8-10kg of mass however I need to avoid the skin/bloating thing as far as practical for cosmetic/detection reasons(i know you cant have it all). Though i don’t ever aim to be lean, it would be nice to maintain the sub-10%.
Please understand that I would like to not only create a cycle but further questions will pop up like ‘What if i get injured…do you continue with cycle?’ etc.
I am sorry to have written so much, I guess i just wanted you all to realise this is not just another 20yo with 1year of lifting wanting to get swole to pick up chicks. I don’t want to wait until I am 35 and then look back and wonder. It is an intrinsic desire I have to achieve, without compromise.
I thank you all in advance.
