As the title suggests, I am looking for some advice regarding what will be my second cycle.
I completed PCT (nolva 40/40/20/20) from a 10 week Test-E/D-Bol(w1-5) w/Arimidex cycle in May, and am looking to begin a second cycle in December. I went from 220 up to 256, coming back down to 245 after PCT (early June). I have since kept my calories in a small surplus, and have gained naturally back up to 248 as at this morning. I’m at approx 16% bodyfat.
I see my immediate goals over a period of about 12 months at this point:
- I wish to continue to add muscle through about April next year. I feel at 6’3" I need more mass before cutting.
- After this, I aim to commence a slow cut in order to preserve as much mass as possible.
Some things I know at the moment
I want this second cycle to be a 6-8 weeker, based with Test Prop. After about week 8 on Test-E, I saw diminishing returns, and it really wasn’t worth the extra shut down.
I have no interest in Tren.
I would prefer this cycle to be leaner than my last, but still a bulk. I gained 5-6lbs too much water/fat than I would have liked too.
My 2 main questions are:
- What other compound is best to stack with Prop for these goals, if anything at all?
- What sort of caloric surplus should one aim for when conducting a leaner bulk on AAS?
