Second Cycle - Opinions?


#1

I did my first cycle of test prop 300mg for 12 weeks followed by a 4 week PCT of nolva and chlomid when I was 22.

That was 1.5 years a go, so my question is - do you think my body has recovered well enough for another cycle?

Things like strength, recovery time and sex drive is all absolutely fine and no problems there.

I’m well aware the ‘don’t cycle until you’re 24/25’ thought train. I’ve already done a cycle and seem to have recovered well and have had a fairly long break.

I’d be doin a bulking cycle something along the lines of 400-500mg Test E with a non oestrogenic oral thrown in (I’m prone to gyno, started getting a little burn on lad cycle but used AI to control it).

Also, stats: 5ft11, 180lbs, around 15% BF im guessing (can see abs fairly well), been weight training for around 6 years along with other sports, 4 years dedicated solely to bodybuilding. Macros are tracked daily. I train 5-7 times a week.

If I were to go ahead it won’t be in the next couple of weeks I’m more thinking in a few months time which gives me enough time to research more and maybe get a good coach to help me with everything.

Just want to know all your opinions really

No way to tell if you’re recovered without pre- and post- cycle blood work. Since you have none, I’d get some pre- done for a new baseline and cycle. You’ll want to return to those numbers (or better) post-cycle.

Ok so first off if you can post some pictures it will be helpful to give you better advice. Stat does not say much, and I would like to see how much muscle mass you have that you are considering a cycle at this age. I’m almost willing to bet that you can add so much more muscle naturally. But I’m sure you won’t listen so if you are going to go ahead and start then 500 mg a week of test E and maybe 40-50 mg of Winstrol a day for the first 6-8 weeks of the cycle is a decent place to start. DO NOT forget to take 10-20mg of Nolvadex a day during the whole cycle and for the 4-5 week after. And HCG 250iu twice a week for the entire cycle and 4-5 weeks after in PCT. Add two bottles of alpha-male during the PCT, and you should be good to go. Get blood test BEFORE AND AFTER!
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Yes, you’re fine. But as mentioned, best way to tell is with blood work.
That being said, yes, Test E 500mgs EW is good. You should get some good results if your diet, training and rest are all dialed in.
I don’t recommend using any other compound including Nolva. Get some HCG and ADEX.
Nolva not to be used during cycle. And you’re not ready for Winstrol right now and it could dry you out. Besides, you want to run this test cycle by itself in case sides occur. If so, you will know it’s the test. If you add compounds you won’t know which one is causing the unwanted aides.
Run Nolva and Clomid for PCT and run your HCG up to PCT but not with.
Have fun.
