Makes sense Lillguy, thanks! Thebeat, why would you drop the EQ? are you just not a fan of it? And what do you recommend for a similar cutting cycle?
Im not a big fan of cycles longer than 12 weeks. Id personally only like to go 10 weeks.
Oh, and of course I will have some adex and nolva on hand. However, on my first cycle of 500mg Test E/week I didnt need any. I only had a few extra pimples and oily skin. I kept it in close proximity though!!!
I’m just not a fan of EQ. Seems like it increases appetite, thickens blood, increases blood pressure, headaches, etc. But doesn’t do much for gains; to me it doesn’t offer ANYTHING that isn’t already present in other compounds more so. I would recommend any other compound, lol. But for your thoughts I’d go with Tren or Masteron, or even Anavar ran for the whole length. Why don’t you just run Test at 500mg/week and Anavar at 40mg/day or Masteron at 300mg/week. Tren would be the best choice for results though.
I would run an light-dose AI like arimidex at .25mg/day unless you have blood results showing that estrogen was maintained within normal physiological ranges. See, the reason to control estrogen is more than Gyno control, but for overall health as well. You do not want to lower estrogen too much, which there is no way that .25mg/day arimidex can, as that is detrimental to gains and health; but you also do not want to cause permanent damage to testicular cells, future prostate problems, and all of the other ailments that raised estrogen levels cause in men - maintain within normal physiological levels, get a blood test at least once during a cycle to get a reference as to what your levels are and get to during a standard cycle.
I like to keep my E2 between 20-30ng/ml ideally, but will allow it to get as high as 50ng/ml. Anything below 10-20 and it effects my sex drive, not my ability as in needing Viagra or something, but my actual drive, so that is relatively easy to notice, but raised levels do not usually become noticable or even effect sex drive or bloat until they are very high.
