Test/Deca First Cycle


#1

Hey guys,

I've been reading on here for a while now and wanted to post my first cycle.

Background:

I'm 26 and a powerlifter. My bests lifts at 198 are a 675 squat, 475 bench and 600 deadlift (wearing double ply gear). I'm currently at 215 BW 5'10".

Ten week Cycle:
WK 1-10 Test Cyp: 500mg/wk (250 on Sun and Wed)
WK 1-8 Deca: 150mg/wk (on Sun)
WK 1-12 Adex: .25EOD for weeks 1-12 taper @ end

PCT:
WK 13-17
Nolva 40/40/20/20

I have some bromo and will start if necessary.

I decided to add the deca for the benefits to my joints as I will be lifting heavy. A couple of questions:

  1. Do you think that 150mg of Deca will be sufficient for noticeable joint benefits.

  2. Do you think my PCT is sufficient?

Thanks guys

almost forgot: goals are to get stronger, planning on also moving up a weightclass or 2.

any comments on this post from Brook a while back?

Brook: "THIS is the reason behind some of my thinking, it may be that when using deca and test with no finasteride.. they equally have activity at the AR - making it a less androgenic cycle than test alone. "

Cycle put on hold due to abnormally high FSH (high LH and low t) as discovered by preliminary blood work :
