looking for feedback from my breathren on my plan for the spring/summer.
I have had a rather long layoff from the juice (off since mid oct) to give my system a solid break and make some natural gains.
I am waiting on the results from my second blood test (taken with nothing in my system) to see where TT, FT, LH, FSH, Prolactin, and E2 are naturally and get a good baseline for pre-cycle.
I’ve now gotten (naturally…well creatine but that doesn’t count) just about back to where I was on cycle in terms of strength which I am rather happy about. Don’t have nearly the stamina and body comp is a little off from where it was but that is to be expected when training naturally.
Currently I am sitting at about 230-235lbs (~15%bf)…I am nearing my 30th birthday so my present to myself is a massive cycle.
#1. injury repair - overall my health is pretty good, my joints are feeling much better than in fall but still ailing a bit…knees aren’t yet 100% but much better (no more pain going up and down stairs)…elbows and ankles as well feel kind of run down.
#2. fatloss - I have slowly started to creep up in terms of bf over the winter so I’d like to drop back below 10%…my ultimate goal is to try to get down to about 5-7% to look good for summer and regain some speed
#3. lean mass, strength, and explosive speed for rugby - pretty self explanitory
Phase I - injury repair and fatloss
W 1-16 GH 4iu ED (5 on 2 off taken Subq or IM split into 2iu early AM and 2iu pre-workout)
W 1-8 Var 60mg ED (split into 20mg doses)
W 1-16 Metformin (optional)
I will be eating low carb/anabolic diet type during this phase or take metformin along with carb meals to simulate a low carb environment and improve insulin sensitivity. training will be cardio 2x/w and weights 2x/w as usual but I think I am going to switch things to a higher rep lower weight scheme.
Phase II - beast mode
W 17-19 Test Prop 50mg ED
W 17-19 Tren Ace 30mg ED or NPP 30mg ED
W 17-32 Test Enth 250-300mg E3D
W 17-28 Deca 125-150mg E3D
W 23-28 Winny (oral) 50-75mg ED (split into 25mg doses)
W 17-36 Adex ~0.25-0.5mg ED depending on E2
W 17-28 HGH 10iu E3D (split into 4 doses IM or IV)
W 17-30 Caber 0.5mg 2x/w
W 18-34 HCG 250iu E3D
W 34-38 Test Enth 50mg 2x/w
W 39-44 Test Enth taper down slowly to zero
W 42-44 Clomid (the usual protocol depending on how the nuts are doing)
During this phase I am going to reintroduce the carbs but just AM and PW for the high GI carbs (possibly taking metformin still but just with the AM carbs if I do). Workouts will be rugby 3x/w and then weights 2-3 days a week depending on how I am holding up recovery wise. Plan is to switch back to heavy compound movements for low reps (4-8) during that time.
Goal for protein will stay at about 250-300g/d from any meats I can shove in my food hole, eggs, nuts, and protein shakes. Will try to get as much good fats as possible. Outside of that I will continue taking the usual stuff like fish oil, CLA, Multi vit/mineral, glucosamin/chondroitin, creatine, etc
So pretty complicated looking as usual but basically gona run test and deca with a frontload and some winny in the middle…the Adex and Caber are there to combat sides from E and Prolactin…the HGH is to try to get some long term body comp changes.
I’m not going to bother with a log but I will prob post before and afters with a results summary sometime in Oct when I am nearing completion.
Overall should be a fun little summer.
