I'm new to the forum, hi everyone. I'm 18 years old, 198lbs 5.9ft, had my first cycle almost a year ago which consisted of 15 ampules omnadren 250 bought it myself from a pharmacy and I ran 10 weeks frontloaded and pinned every fifth day which I discovered wasn't frequent enough, but still had great gains with no sides.
Ran HGC 250 IU every 3rd day trough cycle and pct was standart nolva and added a test booster because it was on hand. So far so good, nothing exceptionally wrong with the cycle exept my age but I don't want it to become a topic of this tread.
The only thing was that before the cycle I had cut. Expirienced guys told me to cycle after cutting as the gains after cutting would be better. So I started my cycle 4 weeks prior the end of my diet and began upping calories from week 5. I may have brought the calories up too fast because at the end of the cycle I looked like I had gained all the fat back and that sucked I was fed up all summer because of this.
So everyone, my question is how do I do it this year in order to stay lean? Bulk now and cut later or cut first and then run a cycle but with different diet and shorter esters?
Wish you best of luck and try to avoid flaming me
Edit: I forgot to mention that I didn't take any AI trough my first cycle because in my country they are F***ing expensive (like a box of adex from a pharmacy costs as much as a minimal monthly salary, I'm not joking) and most of the guys who use steroids don't even know what an AI is. Tamoxifen is fairly cheap tho and here the guys do what is considered old school - if they expirience estrogen related sides they take tamoxifen, or take it at low dose trough the whole cycle if sides are expected to occur.
And other thing forgot to mention, have been training since I was 14 but had a big setback the year 2010. So I'm more than a dum teen trying to get HHUUUGEEE. I'm just asking for advice on how to stay leaner, I'm with a bit slower metabolism and staying lean (abs visible) is a difficult task for me.
Edit 2: bench - 308; squat - 308; deadlift - 265 for 10 perfect reps (last exercise for back)
