I’m really happy to join this amazing library of knowledge that is T Nation, I have found lots of posts/threads here but still nowhere near to say I’m confident enough in what I’m doing or if I’m even doing the right thing so please bear with me.
A little background about me, I’ve been a natural guy for all my life, I’ve started lifting since I was 15, nothing competitive, just for fitness and health sake, so lifting has always been part of my life,I’m 31 years old at the moment, I was always a hard gainer and I have a smaller frame by just being 5’ 4" my weight is around 145 pounds at the moment dropped from 153, I had a car accident 2 years ago and my right hand suffered a lot and had 3 surgeries to repair it, so I was basically left me with no proper exercise for that time and I gained around 15 pounds of fat, which I dropped around 8-9 pounds last month thanks to keto diet and cardio, so I’m leaner but some muscle was gone with that.
Now getting back on topic why did I decide to start using some gear? well I’ve always wanted to try them, see what my body was really capable of, but always backed off, finally decided to bite the bullet, and got for myself the following:
- 2 vials of primobolone 100mg/ 1 ml
- 1 bottle of 100 pills of Oxandrolone,10 mg each
- 1 vial 300mg/ 1 ml of testosterone enanthate
Why I decided to go with this? upon my personal research, I found out that Primo and Anavar are really “safe” and not that harsh on the body (which was my primary concern) while providing good “dry” gains and shedding that last bit of fat that I’m carrying.
Adding Test E looked like a good idea for gaining more mass and read about several people running this cycle, although I expect that there’s no 2 bodies that work the same.
As for diet and exercise, they have been both dialed in by a nutritionist and my coach, but the PED side is not yet all that clear to me on what should I do, I want to linger on the “safer” side by being this my first ever encounter with anabolics than pretty much obsessing on masssive gains and the super hero body.
So far I started this week (Sunday to be precise) by taking the following:
1 shot of 150 mg of Primobol, planning to do 300mg per week divided on 2 shots with 5 days spacing in between doses
Planning on 280mg-300 mg per week of Test E divided in 2 shots, with 5 days between doses
Taking 15mg of Anavar daily
As for other supplements I’m taking:
Omega 3,6,9 complex twice a day
B complex vitamins twice a day
5 gram serving of creatine (Using Mutant Creakong, did a loading phase of 20g per day for 5 days)
700mg TUDCA and 300mg Milk Thistle extract for liver protection
Also I have several questions on PCT therapy, I purchased the following:
20mg Tamoxifen, research suggested 1 pill a day starting on week 3 to 7
5000UI Pregnyl, half dose 1 week after completing the cycle and second dose 2 days later
The only bloodwork I’ve done was a full panel blood test which all parameters were within range
and total Testosterone levels ( which came out at 6.76 ng/mL) and total estrogens which came out at 52.06 pg/ml (suggested range was 0 to 50 so don’t know if I’m a little high on estrogen)
So to summarize all this I intend to use the above for 7 weeks, other than you guys say otherwise or my dosage is too low or I won’t see any gains from this, as I said I want to gain some volume (don’t know what real expectations from this cycle would be) lose the remaining body fat I have on my abdominal area, gain some strenght that luckily I can keep post cycle and of course to look better, but as I said I’m a little concerned about side effects so want to keep things gentle on the body, at least this first cycle and then get more blood tests done ( please also recommend what tests should I look after post or during cycle)
well so that’s pretty much it guys, thank you soo much for all the patience and help, as you can see I’m a little lost so that’s why I’m looking for all your valuable knowledge.
