So I'm currently 6 days into PCT after my first ever cycle. I was running test enanthate at 600mg/week with Arimidex 0.25mg EOD and hCG 500iu/week. I initially planned to do 10 weeks but unfortunately I had to cut it short as my vials ran out earlier than expected, making it an 8.5 week bulk going from 79.5kg to 88kg.
While I experienced some pretty big increases in strength and some decent size gains, I noticed my body fat got a lot higher than I would have liked. At the moment I'd estimate myself around high teens/low 20's. I'm at the point where I don't feel very comfortable with my current level of body fat and I'd like to go on a cut. My research is telling me that cutting during PCT or even shortly after PCT would result in me losing most of the gains from the cycle due to low test levels. I also have a beach holiday coming up on the 28th and obviously I don't want to be walking around shirtless at 20% body fat.
What I'm wondering is would it be best to stick to my PCT, gradually taper calories down each week and hope to lose a few % leading up to the holiday, or go back on test and start cutting until I get down to a body fat level I'm happy with?
