Stats as of day 1:
lifting 4 years
bf% estimate: 14%
The big 3:
Bench: 225 x 5 (245 x 3)
Squat: Only really use them for warm-ups; typically use leg press- I’m using 14 plates for 7-8 reps for the LPmachine I’m on now.
Deadlift: Typically stick to siff-legged DLs, 245 x 6
Week 1-10: Test E 500mg/wk (E3D)
Week 1-4.5: Dbol (liquid) 20mg/day- split up into two doses @ 10mg
Week 1-10: Adex (liquidex) .25mg EOD- until tolerance is assessed.
Week -3-16: Propecia 1mg/day
and I’ve got Nolva ready for my PCT which I’m going to start on week 12-16; 50/50, 25/25 (cause its 25mg per 1ml). I will taper off the adex during weeks 10-12
I’m still on the fence about HCG. I’d like to hear some peoples thoughts about whether or not I should do that. It’s easily obtainable and I wouldn’t need it til about week 5 so I’m still ok for now. I’d dose it at 500iu/wk- (E3D)
ALRIGHT- I did my first injection tonight in the ventroglute. As psyched as I was to get started, it still took me about 5 minutes after I had the Test drawn to actually have my gf stick me. It definitely made me uneasy when my girlfriend said she was nervous about sticking me, so I had to have her stop and take a deep breath and kind of get her psyched to do it. I had both 23g 1" and 25g 1" needles;
After seeing how thick the T was I decided against using the 25g and just stuck with 23g for drawing and sticking- YES I CHANGED NEEDLES AFTER DRAWING, I’m not sticking a dulled up needle in me anytime soon.
The injection was PAINLESS. Aspirated, nothing came back (except a small air bubble- yikes?) injected, pulled out, and just a tiny, tiny drop of blood. The second the needle was out though, I started to feel very faint, hot, and light-headed like I was about to pass out. I think it was just my nerves and the shock of this being the first time- but I laid down and less than two minutes later I was perfectly fine and went to the gym without incident.
I took a shot of adex and chased it with powerade because it’s pretty harsh- nice minty after-taste though.
Didn’t take any Dbol yet because it didn’t come with a doper, and I don’t know if it’s ok to use my Adex doper (if I clean it well) so I’m just going to see if I can pick one up at CVS tomorrow.
I will use this thread to post progress updates, pics, etc. and if I start to have any symptoms/concerns I will definitely be asking for the advice of T-Nation members. Afterall, without some of you guys, I wouldn’t be doing this cycle in the first place.
