Been surfing boards for awhile and finally joined one because I wanted some opinions. From the numerous boards I've been to, it seems that T-Nation has some of the best responses and knowledge out there. Some of the others are questionable, at best. I've read a lot, but nothing beats asking a question yourself.
So I've cycled 4 times - Test E 500; Test E 600, Dbol; Test E 750, Tbol; Test E 600, Deca 500, Tbol
Anyway, I am on TRT so year round 200mg/Test C/Wk + Arimidex + HCG. - just started this at start of year after about a year of severely depressed testosterone levels and various HCG routines to try to restore myself.
I'm 26, 5'11, 215, fairly lean (probably around 10-12% BF), Bench 330, Dead 500, Squat 405. Current goal to continue to lean bulk; lost some lean mass over the past year figuring my hormone situation out, but still in very good shape. Just want to get back to where I was (235, 15% BF), but with lower BF percentage.
I am currently running at 650mg/cyp-ent blend/wk with a prop kick start (week 3). I am going to run this for 16 weeks along with Oral Winny for the last six weeks before back to cruising (TRT). I want to add in Tren as I've read about it endlessly for the past 5 years but never tried. Now I've got some cycles under the belt and am on TRT for life at this point so no longer worried about being extremely shut down as I was before with Tren. I travel frequently (always maintaining gym schedule wherever I am as well as packing my 7-8 meals/day) so pinning ED is honestly not an option; not to mention, I really would rather not pin everyday. So therefore I have two TREN E 200mg/ml vials.
Before I ask my questions, here is my current and proposed cycle:
1-16 Test Cyp/E: 650mg/wk - 2x per week injects (375mg)
1-3 Test P: 100mg/EOD
10-16 Winstrol: Oral, 30-40mg/day
5-15 TREN E: ?????/wk
Also, Arimidex 1mg EOD, HCG 500iu/wk split in two.
Here are my questions: first, I seem to find conflicting opinions on Tren - some say 200mg/wk is too low and I'll just get sides but no gains so it should be run at 400mg/wk at least, if not higher; others say, if you're new to it, run it at 200 or 300 and it will be plenty strong. What should I run it at?
I know many will say, run Tren Ace so you can hop off if the sides are unbearable. I understand that, but I'm running either Tren Enanthate or nothing; its what I have, its what works for my schedule and In terms of handling things, I can handle a whole lot of shit. I'm not concerned about most issues with Tren. The one thing that has me questioning using it at all is the cough; some people say they cough everytime, and severely, some people say they never cough at all.
Obviously, you can't tell me what will happen to me, but I'm curious as to how bad and often the cough is - will I be hacking so hard that I break the needle off in my leg? Is the cough more prevalent with Ace than Enanthate? I read that generally if you find that you bleed when you pin (which I do 90% of the time) it will be a much higher probability that tren will enter the bloodstream and cause the cough (obviously I aspirate, but if I bleed, that means I went through something and pierced something with blood flowing through it). I'm not worried about coughing during the cycle, I'm mainly worried about coughing while pinning.
So anyway, there it all is; please respond to my questions concerning cough. I'm aware of the other side effects and not so worried about them. Am I being ridiculous about canceling the cycle just because I'm worried about this cough? Also please feel free to critique the cycle.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide; I'm so tired of searching for info so I appreciate the direct feedback immensely.
