I did my first cycle 4 months back, it was 250mg/week test for 8 weeks and then 500mg/week for 5 weeks, it was total 13 weeks. I used anadrol in the first 2 weeks of my cycle too.
Then for PCT:
Nolvadex 20mg for 2 weeks then 10mg for 2 weeks.
I gained pretty good on this cycle, it was amazing, felt good too. But I noticed a lot of water and fat on my body(mainly because of my diet). I got puffy nipples too, which are better now than before but I still have them. I further got digestion issues(acid reflux), then got my blood work done and my creatinine was borderline high, so was my cholesterol (borderline high, more LDL than HDL).
In short, I wasn’t feeling well at all.
Now recently I got tested for my testosterone and it is 510(which is wayy low than I used to have before running the cycle, it was 800).
How do I convert these side effects into something better, its been 4 months, I have stopped working out because the puffy nipples are discouraging…What cycle should I run now? So that these side effects go away especially the nipples. I have learned from my mistakes, will fix my diet and my PCT protocol and run AI on a test cycle. But can I run an AI alone right now?
Please stop using steroids. You seem to be in worse condition now then before. You are obviously not recovered. Why would you ask what cycle could be run? You don’t need a cycle you need to get more bloodwork and start to fix the issues you have brought on yourself.
I think folks on here would be more inclined to help you after seeing bloodwork and suggesting actions you can take to resolve your issues.
Funny how his '19 mast/clen post was his first cycle and now this post is also his first. WTF are people thinking. F yourself up first and ask questions later instead of spending a little time researching and asking questions before.
This is not pretty, if it is your 1 rep max. I find it difficult to suggest to anyone the use of AAS who cannot Bench Press their own body weight.
You started being able to Bench Press 72.6% of your body weight. And at the end you were able to BP 93.8% of your body weight.
If you might have followed some of my comments in other threads, you would know that I expect a man who works out with weights should be able to Bench Press 150% of your body weight for at least one rep.
So I guess the best option right now is to stay away from steroids and keep working out? Or should get back to gym, workout a month or two and come back here to get an advice on the protocol to follow?
Here’s a thought. Try staying at 180lbs for 3 sets of 19 reps. It probably will not be possible and will drop. Keep working out and see where your bench press bottoms out. Naturally, work to get to where you can bench press your body weight for 10 reps.
Then, as long as you keep progressing that is good. Give yourself at least a full year clean before revising any thoughts of an AAS cycle.
