    Thanks.

Now I may be new to this game but from everything I read it seems like a good protocol to take an AI, HCG, and PCT (almost like an insurance policy). How valid is the advice I got?

    Im confident your coach has many years of experience with weight resistance training and strongman training. However, he's lacking knowledge in terms of AAS and the associated accoutrements (AI's, SERM's, hCG ..ect) that are important to include with every AAS cycle.

    If you read the links i provided in the first post, you will gain a fundamental understanding of the importance of including these compounds, and why. If you have already, then you understand that an AI does a lot more than prevent bloat and acne. There are a host of other sides related to high and low estrogen that can be very unhealthy, and downright dangerous, if left unchecked. hCG prevents testicular atrophy and promotes a smoother transition to PCT at the end of your cycle. And not including a PCT protocol to assist in restarting your HPTA, is simply foolish imho.

    I honestly believe it would be irresponsible for you to exclude these compounds during your proposed cycle. Please take the time to fully educate yourself before embarking on AAS and do not hesitate to ask questions here or in the Q&A forums.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the input, I didn't think running test solo sounded like a good idea.

    How can I ensure I'm getting quality test? I have a couple different options to pick from.

    Ensure the test is from a quality lab/manufacturer.

    This may seem like too broad a question but what do the vets around here wish they would have known when they did their first cycle?

    I'm new to this forum, I'm going.to study gear for the next year, work on my fourm and base then decide which gear to take based on body compensation. I see a lot of you post info just like this. But you're not explaining it to beginners. You're explaining as if you were explaining to another vet/person who knows about gear. Imo if you looked up the information and posted why to take this product, and not take this one. Or what this does when combined with another. It's a good post I hope I can learn from it but what it doesn't say is why and what.

    Its up to you to do your homework and read everything you can and inform and educate yourself as much as possible. Make notes and word documents to refer to. Observe other cycles and and try understand why certain compounds and various lengths of time were chosen. Read up on esters and what their roles are. But most importantly, read the Nutrition forum and develop a solid understanding of diet, macros, and TDEE. Then, ask pertinent questions based on your research and reading.

    This will give the lead on AAS, and provide you with enough knowledge to make an informed and educated decision.

    What you saying is true. However, from one rookie (me) speaking to another (you), we have to be thankful for the info these vets are posting. They aren't here to spoon feed us, just to point us in the right direction, Nomsayin?
    This thread is an outline for a beginners cycle, not a 'how to' type thread. One of the most useful ways of educating yourself (imo) is reading other peoples cycle logs ( ie: http://forums.steroid.com/showthread...hate-Cycle-Log) as well as having a sounds knowledge of nutrition and training. Take notes as mickey said.

    Good luck

    That's actually a great way to learn and get a feel for what a cycle looks like. And while you're following along, you will likely pick up on why the OP chose those particular compounds in the first place.

    Great suggestion Kernal.

    I'm new as well ( still only planning my first cycle, haven't even gotten any supplies yet), but you gotta look around the forums like the others said. There's so much information here, spend a few days reading just here on this site and you'd have a better understanding of what/why/when.

    Any recomendation on any steroid documentaries? I've seen Bigger, Stronger, Faster but I'm looking for something a little more scientific.

    As a cycle? I don't. Used for primary hypogonadism? It can work. In fact its used monotherapy.

    I believe Sworder has a thread on that.

    Well to be honest, with the internet at your fingertips, hCG is not that difficult to obtain these days. I really cant see why anyone would not be able to include this as part of their cycle. And i personally don't know of any substitutes for testicular atrophy.

    question:

    assuming your diet and training are g2g

    how would the gains compare from say a test prop 8 week cycle, to a test prop + anavar 8 week cycle? ( like the one u suggested prop week 1-8 anavar 60mg/day week 2-8)??

    would you gain more muscle with the added var?

    or would you gain the same amount of muscle but less fat?

    etc..

    and BUMP

    All things considered, and in a perfect world as you suggest, you will definitely become stronger and leaner than Prop only. How much, however, largely depends on the person. Remember this is all dependent on the individual.

    Var will give you additional strength gains and assist in maintaining LBM.
