I’ve done a considerable amount of research, and have decided on Equipoise for my first stack cycle late next summer. My goal is lean mass gain – currently 42 years old, 5’11”, 215 lbs, 17% bodyfat. I’ve gained and kept 30 lbs of lean muscle over my past three cycles.
I’m open to any feedback, suggestions, or constructive criticism, thank you for reading!
Week 1-14: 600mg Boldenone Undecylenate EW
Week 1-14: 350mg Testosterone Cypionate EW
Week 16: 40mg Nolva ED
Week 17: 40mg Nolva ED
Week 18: 20mg Nolva ED
Week 19: 20mg Nolva ED
Previous three cycles:
- Test only 400mg EW
- Test 600mg EW
- Test 500 mg EW Dbol 20mg ED kickstart
- I’m opting to raise the EQ dosage and keep test in the lower range, as I have noticed diminishing returns and acute sides when dosing test over 500mg EW (even when properly using an AI).
- I’ve decided to completely avoid 19 nors (deca / npp / tren), as I’m not willing to risk the possibility of long term libido shut down + ED. I’m not talking about deca dick, I’m referring to the small percentage of users who experiences nonexistent libido for years after use despite all blood levels and HTPA function returning to normal. I know that I am passing up the BEST mass gainers with this decision, but I’m 42, and having the best sex of my entire life with my attractive younger wife, so I’m not willing to take even a small risk. 9+ Months of Deca Dick
- Would adding a small dbol 20mg ED kickstart to the above proposed cycle be asking for trouble? Or would that generally be ok as EQ takes a long time to kick in?
- I understand that EQ aromatizes at about half the rate of test. With this in mind, would I want to dose my AI as if I was taking 650mg of test EW? Or does it not work that way? I’ve heard several bros suggest skipping the AI entirely on test EQ cycles, but that doesn’t make sense to me?
- Any other compounds that I should be considering as I build cycle experience? I hear that Mast and Primo are essentially contest prep, very expensive, and a waste of money at my BF%, and as previously mentioned, I wont take deca or tren. Thoughts?
