I know my way around the gym, eat very well, recently graduated from a school where I played a sport.
More strength, more definition, 185 - 195lbs
I'm planning my second cycle. My first was absolutely awesome.(http://tnation.T-Nation.com/hub/championrugby#myForums/thread/2285836/) I loved the results, I had a great time lifting, it was great. The only negative side effect I had was I was full of water weight by the end of it. At week 10 I was a water balloon. I'm posting to get some advice on how to avoid that this time around. I have a job that basically demands I stay much slimmer than I'd like to, so that's why I'd like to the water weight this time.
My first cycle was:
WK 1-10 Testosterone Enanthate 250mg E3D (500mg Per Week)
WK 1-7 Dianabol 40mg ED (280mg Per Week)
I tried a test taper + Nolvadex, but I felt like it took me longer to "bounce back". All I really "bounced back" from was no sex drive and being a water balloon.
This cycle I'd like to run:
WK 1-8 Turanabol 60mg ED (420mg Per Week)
WK 1-12 Testosterone Enanthate 300mg Twice a Week (600mg Per Week)
PCT 3 days after last Injection
WK 11: Nolvadex 40mg ED
WK 12: Nolvadex 40mg ED
WK 13: Nolvadex 20mg ED
WK 14: Nolvadex 20mg ED
I'm taking Turanabol because I witnessed how fantastic it worked out for two friends of mine on an oral only cycle of Turanabol at 40mg ED for 7 weeks. They weren't prepared for anabolics, didnt have their diet in order (both worked/ate at a pizza shop every day + boozed) and weren't dedicated to the gym. It still worked miracles for both of them, without the water weight.
I'm not dead set on or against Test E, but I do want to give Tbol a try. I've been considering Anavar, but it really is too expesive to justify. It isn't that I can't afford it (not that I'm made of money or anything), it's that I think those are dollars better spent on other gear. I'm considering using Tren instead of Test, but I have no experience with it at all.
Any suggestions would be great, always some good advice to be had on this board.
