Hey everyone, my names Josh. I'm new to the forums here but not the site haha. Been getting my info and doing my research pretty exclusively on T Nation.
Brief back ground. Been engaged in high intensity training for over 4 years. But only for the last year or so has my focus been getting stronger and bigger as compared to a jack of all trades type, I was lifting but also running 30+ miles a week and swimming 4-5 miles a week. I was training for Air Force Pararescue. Won't bother you guys with that story. But I made it 8 weeks through Indoc (selection) out of 11 and washed out. I took an entry level separation instead of getting stuck with a specialty (job) I didn't want. So for the last year since I've been back I've gained 20 pounds. My body fat when I was 150 in the AF was 7. Jut got it checked via the skin fold caliper test and I'm 9% now.
I really got into improving my power lifts about 6 months ago.
I went from a squat of 155 up to 235.
A grindy shoulder pain-ridden bench press of 185 to a clean pain free max of 225.
And a max deadlift of 181 (kilogram plates) to a max of 265.
Still weak as hell but I have improved.
My diet has always been good thanks to great habits from birth.
My supplementation is on point with whey protein, creatine, a multivitamin, fish oil and glucosamine.
My training I feel is good to. I was doing Jim Wendlers 5/3/1 for about 5 to bring up my strength. Now I've shifted to a overall improvement focus with. 5/4/3/2/1 for my strength lifts and 8x8 for bodybuilding.
Now to the question. I've taken the plunge and ordered my first cycle of Trestolone Acetate and nolvadex for my pct. 60ml 3 month cycle. 1ml every other day for the first 2 months. 2ml every other day for the last month. How does that plan sound? When should I start the nolvadex? Right after my last day? Or should I overlap it with the last week or so of trestolone acetate. Any advice for me? I really want to get the most bang for my buck. Thanks so much guys!
P.S. I don't see this as a magic formula. Lifting had been a part of my life since I was 15. And my passion for it has only grown at an immense rate. I'm pursuing a degree in sports and exercise science and want to become a strength and conditioning coach. This is a life long pursuit of strength and bodybuilding that I am on. I'm 20 years old. 21 in May.
