I am planning my first cycle to be around the beginning of the year and am just trying to get all my ducks in a row with plenty of time to plan everything out and have what I need when I need it.
I know this is a much touched on subject but I figured what the hell, most of the posts are pretty old or are far enough from my age to make me think it’s worth posting my situation and ask for some advice from the gurus.
First off, me:
33 years old
Been lifting for 5 or 6 years with varying amounts of regularity when I was kickboxing and boxing often and was more focused on conditioning than adding mass. I used 1-andro this spring but this will be my first AAS experience.
Here’s what I’ve been thinking.
WK1-10 Test E 250mg Every 2.5 Days (Tuesday/Friday) HCG 250IU Every Other Day WK11-12 HCG 250IU Every Other Day WK13-18 Nolvadex 20mg Every Day
I want to keep this as simple as possible to truly get an idea of what’s doing what so I know how my body handles anything new. That said the HCG sounds like a great inclusion not only to keep the boys bouncy but for the stimulation (and therefore lack of desensitization) of the Leydig cells to keep my LH where it needs to be post cycle.
I think my biggest question probably lies in whether or not I should be using an AI (Aromasin) on cycle with the HCG or if that will be sufficient by itself?
I’ve also considered some Dianabol for the first 1-4 weeks but I really would kind of like to see what the Test does on it’s on I think. I feel like the extra boost could be beneficial though, not only to my levels of motivation and get-up-and-go but to the actual cycle, to kickstart the Test. Am I misinterpreting how this would actually work? Is it less synergistic and more of a psychological boost to kick things off? If that’s the case I would probably opt to skip it for simplicity’s sake.
So the big questions are:
Should I use Aromasin in conjunction with the HCG while on cycle? Is Nolvadex at 20mg every day for 6 weeks a satisfactory PCT for 500mg Test E for 10 weeks?
Thanks in advance for any insight. I’m studying up but I’ll never be able to study my way into experience. You all have the knowledge and I appreciate any help you can provide.
