Opinion/Advise on First Cycle

Hey bros – new around here, but thanks for having me on!

I would really appreciate any help, opinions, or advise from experienced users on this issue.

(Background Info)

Height - 6’1

This is to be my first cycle with ‘real’ steroids, however I have used PHs such as H-drol and M-drol in the past.


Weeks 1-12: Test Enanthate 500mg/wk (Pinning 250mg twice a week Mon/Thurs)
Weeks 1-4: Dianabol 25mg/ED (Taken 1hr Prior to Workout)
Weeks 1-13*: HCG 500iu/wk (Pinning 250iu twice a week Mon/Thurs)
Weeks 1-13: Arimidex .5mg ED
Weeks 1-13: Avodart (Dutasteride) .5mg ED

Weeks 14-17: Clomid 100/100/50/50
Weeks 14-17: Nolvad 40/40/20/20
*Creatine and Natty Test Booster

Essentially I am running Test-E at 500mg/wk split into two doses a week for 12 weeks, which will be kicked off by four weeks of Dbol 25mg taken every day one hour before working out.

To battle sides on cycle I plan to use the HCG 500iu/wk pinned 2x/week, Arimidex .5mg ED, and Avodart .5mg ED for hair loss.
*I plan to use the HCG in week 13, last HCG dose will be 5 days prior to my 4 week PCT (Weeks 14-17)

My PCT will be a 4 week combo of Clomid and Nolva 100/100/50/50 and 40/40/20/20 respectively.

My Questions:

What would be a better AI for this cycle, Arimidex or Aromasin? What would be the best dosage of this AI? Why?

I understand DBol is widely considered to be most effective when blood plasma levels are consistent, or when the Dbol is spread out effectively throughout the day, however, I have also encountered many that swear by taking it in a single dose before working out. I think I will do it prior to my workout because I believe it will be less stressful on the liver to only have to deal with it for 5-6 hours a day rather than throughout the day. Thoughts?

Is HCG 500iu/wk split between two 250iu doses enough to keep me from avoiding full natural test production shutdown?

Those are just some questions I had from the top of my head. Please, please, please provide insight, opinions, and advise on this first cycle preparation. I would really appreciate it!

Thanks –


From what I understand with the HCG your body will still shut down complete natural testosterone production. The use of HCG is to prevent testicular atrophy, which when you begin your PCT, will have a better chance at a quicker “recovery”

looks solid just adjust adex as u go though .5mg ed is alot for some ppl
