What do you guys spend per Cycle
Just looking for averages here. For a beginner cycle. 12-16 weeks. What would you spend from a high to low.
01-21-2004, 02:10 AM #2
its really a broad question you know. depending on the type of gear, the source, anti e's etc. I spent more on food during my cycle than i did on actual steroids, and anti e's. I think that is one of the most underestimated factors. From now on I will never start a cycle without at least a few weeks of food on hand and a 1000$ or more for food. if your going to do it do it right.

several variables involved
and symatech is 100% correct the food required for the duration of your
cycle will be the biggest cost
other variable include what you decide to take
whether you buy from a guy at the gym , an internet source ect
the same bottle of lets say test. can run from $45 to $200
but to answer your question a good beginer cycle could be done
for 250 -$500

Thanks. Food isn't a problem here as a work part-time in a kitchen and get lots of eats for free!

i used to love when i worked at a hotel restaurant and was good friends with the chef, i ate salmon filets three days a week and unlimited chicken breasts,
i usually will spend anywhere from 500 to 1000 depending on what i'm doing

What I don't understand is this....why do your eating needs change while on cycle?? You should eat the same way....6 times a day, whether you are on a cycle or not. Probably the reason so many people complain about not keeping gains....just my .02

This was my first cycle, and I spent $535 with a gym guy. I just ordered another 325 from overseas...I only needed $120 of it for this cycle. Then you add in the ancillaries...three bottles of Nolva, one bottle of L-dex, one bottle of Exemestane, two bottles of liquid clen .
Also figure the protein powder...five big jugs and two bags.
Wait a minute...add in the IGF I ordered ($200), and this is getting expensive.

About $705 for Gear then about $120 for PCT
On the Average..
Money well spent..

It varys... but to do a good first cycle I'd say expect to pay somewhere between $300-$600, depending on your source... and that's JUST for the gear.
I just started a cycle two weeks ago (6th cycle) and I will probably spend in the neighborhood of $1500 for gear by the time it's done.

I up my proteins and carbs with 10% while on a cycle. Nothing fancy though...

I usualyy spend around $1000 on gear for a cycle. (my source is a little expensive) another $100 or so a week in food, and around $100 or so more a month for supps and vitamins. then there is the cost of tanning to rid my back of zits. and of course by the time the cycle is over I have to buy a new wardrobe 'cause nothin fits! I am sure there are other expenses I forgot about, but cycling is very costly if done right.

think ahead, buy bulk, save$
01-21-2004, 02:15 PM #15
I just started my first cycle... About $430 my sust and d-bol came really cheap, got nailed on the anti-e''s and clomid tho. I agree with majorpecs tho (avout the food and supplementation all the time) spend about $55 a month on supps (www.supplementauthority.com very cheap) and i'm at school, so food is always avalible

Was gonna end up spending $700-$800 for Mexican stuff that was probably underdosed. Plus an extra $1000 or so reserved for food and supplements.

Well i haven;t actually started yet but i plan on spending about 275 for a 12 weeker: 12 vials test 250, 3 boxes clo, 3 nolva, and 4 clen . seeing as it's my first cycle i think i have estimated everything out pretty good and i figure anything left over will be put toward the next cycle

about $100 for 2 vials of QV Test E250 for a 10 week cycle, and about $60 on 2 retin-A tubes, and $120 for PCT that includes L-dex, L-clom, L-nolv and pins.
Total of : $280 !!!!
PS: ****, I can't believe people spend $80 on a 2 week cycle of Mag-10 hahahaha....

I tend to shop for stuff I don't plan on using. I end up fingering down the list and thinking, hey, why not for a rainy day?
But for the most part, my cycles are cheap. Test and tren is really all I do. Some EQ thrown in here and there

i spent around $1200 on my second cycle. But for a beginner cycle, you should get away with spending under $500, depending on your source.
The money thing should not be an issue. Some people pay less for gear because they have great sources, others pay a little more for their gear. All that really matters is the legit-ness of your gear. Me, i pay a little higher price, but i know that all my gear is legit, and i deal with my source face-to-face.
You may get away paying $200 for your first cycle, thinking you got the deal of your life, but if your gear is fake. Your no better off than tits on a bull.

Oh btw...I usually spend anywhere from $1500.00-$2500.00 on average. But now that I've been doing GH it's up around $2000.00 a month for my gear and GH. so lets say $4000.00-$5000.00 per cycle.
that's canadian $$ ...so like $100.00 US that's cheap isn't it

anywhere from 200.00 to 300.00
01-24-2004, 09:01 AM #32
im curious....everyone that is spending less than $500 what are your cycles looking like?
01-24-2004, 09:03 AM #33
test e, eq, nolva,clomid simple my next will run about 6-700.00
01-24-2004, 09:06 AM #34
I just spent around $1200 for the cycle I am on now and everyone is right about the food.
01-24-2004, 09:10 AM #35
people who are spending under 500 are either brewing their own or are doing very short cycles

Wow, some of the prices you guys pay are unbelievable!!! I could put together cycles that would make most people on here drool for less than $500.
What is the average price of Var?? I've noticed that most other AAS I can purchase are considerably cheaper than what you guys have listed. I just bought 2 bottles of 100 10mg anavar and paid $130 a piece....is this good as well?? I wasn't sure if $1.30 a 10mg pill is good considering I'm popping 4 a day!

i believe you, if you have a good powder source you can do a cycle for almost nothing
