Recommendations for First Cycle?


I am going to start my first cycle.
It is going to be a Test Enanthate cycle.

I have 5 years of experience with weight training from the past,
and I have now trained for 6 months

I am 31 years old and 168 cm heigh (5 feet 6 inches)
My weight is 78 kg (170 lbs)
I think my bodyfat is between 8-10%
My lift is now.
220 kg 1 RM deadlift (485 lbs)
170 kg 1 RM Squat (375 lbs)
125 kg 1 RM Bench (275 lbs)

The gear I will be using is all Balkan pharmaceuticals except the HCG. I have heard that is a good brand.

My plan is to take:

Test E 2x250mg/Week 1-14
Deca 2x100mg/Week 1-14
Proviron 50mg/ED Week 5-14, 100mg/ED Week 14-16
Aromasin 12,5mg/EOD Week 2-18
HCG 2x250IU/Week 3-14, 250IU/EOD Week 14-17

Weeks 16-20
Novladex 40/40/20/20
Clomid 100/100/50/50

Please tell me what you think about the cycle.
I have some knee and shoulder pain.
Will the low dosage of Nandrolone decanoate have any effect on my joints?

I aslo have easy access to:
Testosterone Propionate
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate

So tell me if it is anything else I should add or change to my cycle to get better results.
Any kind of feedback is much appreciated.

Best regards Alexander

No! No! NO!

First cycle test only!

Week 1-10: Test Enanthate 500mg/week (pin 250mg twice weekly)
Week 11-12: nothing
Week 13-14: Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) 40mg/day
Week 15-16: Nolvadex 20mg/day


Just stick to Test for your first cycle. It’s going to be rough trying to balance your estrogen and prolactin levels if you have never had any experience dealing with each individually before. You won’t know how each compound is going to make you feel individually and therefore if you experience any sides you won’t be able to determine what compound is causing them. With that being said if you want to add some dbol in that wouldn’t be a bad choice because it is in and out of your system quickly. Also this way your just dealing with estrogen Aromatization instead of having to worry about prolactin at the same time.

Test 500mg a week.

Nolva 40/40/20/20.

End of story.


Thanks so much for all the help.
It is great to get some advice from people with alot of experience.
I understand the point with the prolactin, so I will definitely drop the Deca.
Is it anything else you would recommend I can add as joint support?

It is also tempting to add some fast acting steroids like dbol or tbol to get a better start on the cycle. If it will not increase the risks of side effects much?

And you recommend me to drop the clomid completely.
So Nolvadex alone is enough for PCT?

Instant gratification is almost never worth the trade off. Just go with test-only and you will be very satisfied with the results. Your numbers are very good already, so just keep putting in the work and watch what happens.
