    No problem. And yes, a good source is important. Unfortunately, can't be found here since this isn't a source board

    Can't answer that. Everyone's body will respond differently. Follow the protocol for the betterment of recovery.

    just on page two alone and Ive found this thread to be valuable.

    I'm 36 years old, 5 10, 216lb 11-12% BF, been working out for over 15 years with past 27 months being longest run I've went straight and fall within all your requirements to take gear. Any expectations to the rule about Test only for first cycle. I ask this because I'm that I get a response that Deca could be used as well seeing that it reduces joint pain. I have a elbow pain every now and then and was going to take that with my first cycle, but after reading this post won't go that route. I only included stats in hopes that you can get a idea of my background .

    Test only. I don't recommend any other steroids alongside testosterone for the first cycle. You can do other things for your joints. See the supplement section.

    Good luck, BeingSwole.

    Hello austine

    I followed your cycle plan, the only alteration i made was that i am using test prop 100mg eod for 6 weeks. The reason is that my goals are not that big, i feel as if using test only cycles in the future will allow me to achieve my goals. I will be using test prop 1-6 weeks, with 4 months breaks in between. My question is if i should follow the same PCT?

    Thankyou

    Wow, thank you so much. I was considering starting my first cycle in about two weeks, however, after reading your information I've decided to wait. I've definitely need to work on my diet. I work out well just dont eat well. I'm 5'5" and weigh 147 in the am. I do love my cardio. Anyway your awesome, thanks again.
    I do have a question if you dont mind. You mentioned giving blood to reduce the effects of thickening blood, the problem is I was in the military stationed in a country that keeps them from excepting my blood. Do you have an alternate solution?

    Austinie I got a question regarding my first cycle. WHen I am done I will post it in planning mode now. WHile everything get here.

    My gear is 400 test e for 1 ML. If I split that into two shots 200 each per week. I have read that sense its 400 that it will hurt worse on new muscle? Because its stronger any truth? .5ml is a small amount of oil i would think.

    Also on HCG same day as Test shots... Which are going to be Mon and Thurs. Is .250iu still a good starting point? I have seen .500 also as a starting point? Want this to be right because I wanna have kids.

    Ai will start on Tue day after test shot and Friday each week( OR should I do it every other day starting with tue, thur, sat and so on... .25 I have pill form. Quarters might be hard to split up. How would you recommend me do this?

    AI every other day.

    Yes, the more concentrated the gear, the more it stings. No such thing as varying impact on "new muscle". That's all in your head.

    200 to 250iu of hCG is plenty.

    Just a random question ... I am going on vacation in 14 weeks if I run a cycle that's 12 weeks long of just test e because this will be my first time. How long will it take me to cut the water weight ?

    Will 2 weeks be enough? Or should I just run a 10 or 11 week cycle?

    Great read! Between this post and a few linked articles this definitely helped me out. I never used steroids before so this was an excellent education article. I knew about PCT, but didn't know about AI or anything else. I do have a question though. I have a friend (who's getting me into steroid use ) who's been on/off for 13 years. I asked him what he uses for PCT and he said he doesn't cycle off. Is this something I could do or should I cycle off after each cycle? Thanks for all the info!

    You need to cycle off unless you want to be on TRT for the rest of your life. You're on the right track reading these articles and absorbing information. Keep reading for a while before you start your cycle, and post your cycle on the forum for critiquing before you start.

    I sourced my TEst E and HCG and this will be first cycle. I have a blood work appointment in 4 days, and results usually take about a week. In the event that I don't have my arimidex will it be okay to still start my cycle. Just trying to make sure work out possible kinks beforehand. Thanks

    Wait until you have everything on hand before you start your cycle.

    Hi there. I'd Like to make a questione about arimidex use. Cause i will inject great amount of T, and i want to avoid its trasformation in estrogen, i take AIs .
    Should i try to keep my E levels of my 2nd BW (in the middle of the cycle) at the same level before starting cycle? Or could i allow higer level?
    My most important thing is to avoid sexual related issues due to too much E.
    Thanks
    F.

    I just wanted to let you know that I've found this thread invaluable over the past 6 months that I've been researching steroid using. I've spoken to a number of seasoned bodybuilders who have cycled for years, but the wealth of information I have found here far outweighs even their personal experiences! Thanks again. I'll definitely be keeping a record of my cycle and experiences on here when I decide to go down that path!

    Hey austinite, didn't mean to thread hijack (I don't have PM capabilities), but if you wouldn't mine looking at my thread in the HRT forums, I would greatly appreciate it, seeing as you are a HRT specialist.

    I was thinking of possibly using the pct protocol outlined in this thread as a possible way to get off TRT in the case it's not for me.

    Thanks!

    If you want to get off TRT, try Clomid. 25 mg on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays for 3 months. Then test your levels 8 weeks after. Of course, that doesn't guarantee anything, but that's what studies have proven effective. Way too many factors to list.
