Competition Prep Cycle
OK, I know I sound like a total newb doing this but I did search the forum and I did not see many cycles using this gear. I've run 2 bulk cycles so far and never have researched cutters. As some of you know, I'm prepping for a contest in 11 weeks, this will be my first one. I'm 5'6", started dieting at 210 and I'm now at 200. My bodyfat percentage is single digits. Since it's my first show I've decided to go in as a middle weight. So my weight will be on the boarder line of middle weight/light heavy so I should look pretty good at 5'6".
The trainer/coach I'm working with wants me to run a competition prep cycle. He said I should run the cycle up until a few days before the show. I asked him what kind of gear I should run. He said I should start with anavar and prop, later switch to test suspension with masteron and tren in there to. It seems like he's of the idea of just running gear and throwing in stuff here and there. From being a member of this board I do not like taking gear without a well planned, well thought out cycle.
The cycle should run for 10 weeks. Anavar, Prop, Test Suspension, Masteron and Tren. I'm going to keep reading and researching to see what cycles I can find. If you can offer any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

i think a common pre contest stack would be Prop and Tren , with maybe some Var thrown into the equation also Arimidex , with this cycle you should be able to keep your muscle whilst dieting and maybe gain a few lbs of new muscle, plus you shouldn't hold water if any at all, bump for more experienced guys but i've read this to be a common pre contest stack amongts the pro's (with GH of course) then there's the decision on whether T3 or Clen comes into it, good luck bro, keep us updated

I'd leave the suspension out Carlos...you'll hold too much water on that.
I'll suggest this to you.
WK 1-10 100 mgs ED prop
WK 2-10 40 mgs ED VAR
WK 1-8 75 mgs ED fina
WK 5-10 50 mgs ED masteron.
I'll be honest here.I'd leave the VAR out and run halo from wk 5-10 at 30 mgs ED,instead.You'll hold no water on halo,and between that and tha masteron,you'll be hard as a rock.The fina will aid in cutting and give you growth and strength gains.The halo will give you godlike strength as well.
Just my .02 bro...good luck on the comp!!

Very good to hear that your injury is not that severe. I do think that making middle wt (176 1/4? right) might be hard for you. Just my opinion, but here is why. If you are 200 now, and you said you were in single digit BF, then lets say you are 9%. I would imagine that the lowest you could possibly get would be 3% so that is a 6% drop in BF. That would be only 12 pounds of BF which would put you at 188. That leaves another 12 pounds to lose. Given the gear that you are planning to run. I dont think that you will lose 12 pounds of muscle. For arguements sake, lets say that you lose "3 pounds of muscle" per se'. That leaves 9 pounds of water weight, and judging by your avatar, I doubt you will have that much to lose. My point is that I would hate to see you work so hard to get to MiddleWt., and not make it, but be a flat 180 or so and have to go up a class. IMO it might be better to go Lighthvy., from the start and try to come in at say a fuller 190 or so at the weigh in, and then fill out for the prejudging. I will def. be following your progress, and I wish you the best of luck!

Let's assume you only have 10 weeks left. This is what i have done and would recomend:
Week 1-9 Test Prop at 100mg ED
Week 1-10 0.5mg of Arimidex to combat the estrogen conversion from the above test, it works grea.
Week 1-10 Clomid at 50mg ED, just incase there is still some estrogen conversion taking place.
Week 1-8 EQ at 400mg-600mg week great for vascularity
Week 1-10 Winny at 50mg ED
I would keep it at that, tren is good but i feel has a bit of harsh sides so i replace it with winy for me, and it gives me Progesteron driven gyno, so tren is a no for me.
Now week 9-10 Anadrol50 at 50mg ED, this will fill you out and cause intracelular fat deposition (inside the muscle cells) in turn making you feel and look very, very full.
Now if you want to venture out into some exotics, i would through in IGF-1r at 40mcg/day for last 4 weeks and PGF-2A at 500mg ED (i think i can double check that if you are interested in running that item) the stock off these two made me far harder and danse then Halos...vascular, hard and very thin skin is what i got from this combo...i hope that helps, here is my take on contest prep...good luck Bro...XXLSOURCE CHECKS ONLY FOR USERS WITH OVER 100 POSTS.

The anadrol is there for a purpose. It helps with carb up and helps keep the muscles full so you don't look flat. (Another tip from a pro)

You should probably frontload that eq if you only do it for 8 weeks since thats very short for eq.
03-31-2005, 12:24 AM #26
I'll keep that cycle in mind come contest time.
