so I decided to go for steroids after 4 years of lifting looking like this:
I mostly went for aesthetics although my piss poor 1000lbs total improved up to 1350ish now. I’ve chosen to do TRT test + anabolics. Never liked going above 200 mg/wk of test. Typically 150-175mg no AI needed. If anything I’d take nolva when nips acted up on some of the drugs I took.
I’ve done a few 4-6 weeks short cycles using dbol, tbol, drol, tren and trest ace (never above 300 /wk). Usually I’d do a peaking program or a challenge like “Building the monolith” or the “531 rest pause challenge” when doing orals. And a standard 531 when on TRT.
I don’t think the strength gains shall be too hard to maintain, however I’d like to at least maintain my current shape and get to 1400+
My diet sweet spot is 4k kcal, 240P 50F 600+C. Besides a few Big Macs following lower body sessions that drain me super hard, it’s all extremely clean. Hell without the Macs I’d average 25g of fat a day.
Right now I have a few weeks left of test. I have 5 vials of HCG, bunch of nolva and adex on hand. I hate clomid, not an option… I also use melanotan which I believe shouldn’t impact anything although the nice and dry look it tends to give me must mean the androgen/estrogen expression is tweaked towards androgen. Or maybe that’s the better insulin sensitivity. Theories purely out of my ass.
I’ve run a number of bloods and I’m happy that at least my TSH always stayed between 1 and 1.5 so that’s not too bad. Crushing my thyroid was kind of my #1 fear.
So how would you go for that PCT? I’ve seen a lot of protocols but the moment you decide to BnC and run multiple cycles I believe anecdotal experience has a lot of value and I’ll appreciate any suggestions.
