So I am coming off my first cycle, and well I stuffed it up quite badly.
I didn’t plan or research correctly and it was more a case of putting out fires than steady progress.
Thankfully I found this site and got good advice on what to do next and how to fix my stuff up. Just finishing my Nolva now and feeling the side effects of my hormones trying to level out - acne especially is not a great side effect.
Anyways I thought I would start planning my next cycle.
Got my advice and cycle from:
ANYONE new here I recommend having a read of that sticky. Explains everything you could ever want to know.
Thinking of keeping my cycle basic - 10 weeks Enth.
W 1-10 Test Enth 250mg E3D
W 1-12 Adex 0.25mg EOD (reduce to 0.125mg EOD in last week)
And PCT basic too:
PCT Option 1 (SERM PCT)
W 13 Nolva 20mg 2x/d or Clomid 50mg 2x/d
W 14-16 Nolva 20mg/d or Clomid 25mg/d
The only other advice I would like is in order to maximize my gains, would you recommend any of the secondary auxiliaries? Considering my first cycle really didn’t go to great, managed to keep about 3kgs of muscle mass from it, would it be worthwhile running the second with Dbol or Deca, or would I be better off keeping it simple with the Enth?
Optional secondary additions
W 1-4 Dbol 10mg 3x/d if you want an oral kickstart or just a little something extra thrown in mid cycle when your test is kicking in (seems most lately are going with the latter)
W 1-8 Deca 300mg/w if you want some additional bulking help
I am currently sitting at 88kgs, 14%BF, 1.83M, and am 24.
I train regularly 3-4 times a week, on a strength focused lifting program with a lot of emphasis on the big 5 lifts - bench, rows, deadlifts, squats and o/h press.
My diet is very clean and I have a nutritional plan I have been following regularly.
Only negative was I was sick for 3 weeks for chronic bronchitis so still recovering from that and lost about 5 kgs during that period.
I loved the effects of PROP but hated the PIP - especially as have 3 squat days in my program. The cyp took a lot longer to feel the effects but at least they were painless. My 2 biggest things I am missing from the cycle - My mood was incredibly elevated. 2 - My recovery time was incredible. I have had rotator cuff injuries and issues in the past so usually can NOT work out the day after shoulders but on cycle I would recover at a rapid rate and didn’t feel my rotators flair up once in the 10-12 week period.
I think I have learnt a LOT from my previous cycle. That is why I want to start planning and plan properly from now for my next cycle.
PS what would be the recommended waiting period between cycles? Some stickies say the time you were on gear you should be off, others say 4-5 weeks after your last test injection?
