    Yes. Nac is enough.

    Check these articles for explanation of NAC benefits and gynecomastia .

    I read the Week 1-14 section and;

    Does that mean PCT starts week 14 or 14 days after the end of week 14? Because that schedule has you taking adex 2 weeks straight on it's own just wondering if that included PCT

    PCT start times:

    Testosterone Enanthate = 14 days after last injection
    Testosterone Cypionate = 18 day after last injection
    Testosterone Propionate = 3 days after last injection

    You should always use adex until your PCT starts. Only stop adex when PCT starts.

    I sure wish this was available for me to read 10 years ago. Great info. Couple questions:
    1. Is tamoxifen the same thing as nolvadex ? Maybe I got confused in reading. I thought tamoxifen was to reverse gyno? Been reading a lot of posts, could have mixed up reading
    2. When should u start PCT after Sus since it is a combination of esters?

    1. Yes. It used for both; PCT and gynecomastia reversal.
    2. 18 to 21 days is fine.

    I had my Dexa Scan done this morning, but having trouble working out my daily p/c/f requirements, I've used your formula but I must be doing something wrong as the figures I end up with are way out of whack :/
    These are my scan results;

    Lean: 48.098
    Fat: 8.740
    Weight: 130.66 lbs
    Height: 5 ft 8"
    % Fat: 14.75%
    TDEE: 2212

    I'm after my p/c/f for a diet critique, any help would be greatly appreciated

    Ok. What exactly are you not able to figure out? You have your weight (too low for cycling btw), your BF% and your TDEE.

    The amount of p/c/f I should be consuming of course, I thought the whole point of getting the lbm bf and tdee was so you can determine the pcf lol

    There's no such thing as a stupid question

    Hello,

    First time poster here, but I've been lurking around for a while now. Today I decided to call an old friend two see if can get get the number of a "Supplier" without him knowing what I was up to, but before I got a chance to ask, he tells me he's on a cycle. So I'm like, that's exactly what I was calling for LOL. Anyways, he starts telling me how great he feels and how much weight he's pun on blah.. blah..blah..

    So I tell him to give me the dudes number, but he tells me he has an extra bottle if I want it. Fast forward two hours and I'm stiiting here typing with a bottle of Testosterone Enanthate . The bottle says Pro lab Stack 375 Human Grade 10 ml. Can I post pics of the Bottle?

    My questions are.

    1 How often do I take this, 1ml/week?
    2 What size needles do i need?

    I've read this thread already so I don't plan on starting the cycle until I get my hands on some HCG and Arimidex . I plan on doing the blood work tomorrow morning.

    Description: The Hormone Panel for Males contains the following tests:
    - Lipid Profile
    -Complete Blood Count w/ Differential
    -Estradiol, Sensitive
    -Insulin Growth Factor (IGF-1)
    -Comprehensive Metabolic Panel
    -Testosterone (Free) , Serum (Equilibrium Ultrafiltration) With Total Testosterone
    -Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA)
    -Thyroid Profile

    I'm meeting the supplier this evening, so I hope to get the rest of the stuff today and hopefully needles.

    PS. I'm already down to 13% body fat 6'0" 173 lbs.

    Thanks

    ^ 23 to 25 gauge 1 inch needle.

    Yes, you can post a picture, just make sure the source is not in the image, only the UGL is allowed.

    All other questions are answered in the thread. Good luck to you.

    Ok thanks,

    I was able to get Arimidex and Clomid but no HCG . He says Its very hard to get, so now i dont know how to proceed. I read some threads where they say you can Replace HCG with Clomid Instead?

    I was able to read the fine print in the Bottle.

    Testosterone Enanthate 125mg
    Drostanolone Enanthate 125mg
    Trenbolone Enanthate 125mg

    If It's not safe to do this without the hcg, then I'll just return it?

    Thanks

    No. You cannot replace hCG with clomid. Clomids purpose is to turn on LH signal at the pituitary, which is already suppressed by injecting testosterone . You'd be fighting a losing battle.

    hCG is available all over the net. I cannot mention sources because it's against the rules. That is for you to do the leg work.

    You should return that compound, it contains trenbolone , the most anabolic androgenic steroid available. Not a first cycle compound whatsoever. Also contains masteron . With 3 compounds which you would have no control over, you'll never be able to narrow down side effects.

    You need testosterone enanthate only. No mixed compounds.

    On last thing please. If I am able to get the Test E alone. Im still going to need the HCG . I did some research online , and all I could find is woman ordering from some websites for some type of diet. The woman on those forums claim all you need is to fill out a questionnaire and thats it!!! Is this the same HCG? seems too easy?

    Thanks again

    Excellent post. I know personally I'm following this as although my bodyfat isn't that high, it's not where it needs to be to start.

    I just use a company called Private Md Labs. You pay online for the tests you want. They email you some paperwork that you print and take to the nearest Labcorp to you. In 5 days they email you the results. no doctors needed.

    PS: I ended up getting Test C. 200mg

    Hey I'm new to the site and I'm here doing research because I've been thinking about taking some anabolics to help me lose some weight and get cut and stronger. Yes I read the part about age but I've had x-rays done and my doctors has told me that I'm pretty much down growing. I'm 18 6'3 in February 2013 I tipped the scale at 290lbs and have been dieting and exercising and changing things up every few weeks and now I'm at 250lbs and I can't seem to go any down anymore. I'm currently taking supplements (all natural stuff like coffee bean extract etc.), multivitamins, and hydroxycut extreme. What do you guys suggest I do and do you think it'll be a good choice to start a cycle or should I stick to dieting and exercising. BTW I'm not all fat, besides the man boobs lol, I'm an athletic big guy. I played football in high school and i run 1.5m in 14 mins flat.

    Hit the nutrition section 1st brother. They can help you. Even if your xrays indicate you've grown, your endocrine system is not completely matured. I do not recommend steroids at all.

    If you're not following guidelines, start a new thread and ask for advice.
