    Test, EQ, and Halo cycle.

    Been reading a lot about these and decided I'm gonna take em. This is planning for the next cycle. Next cycle won't be for another 17-18 weeks. Just finished pct Thursday.

    Prior cycles have been

    500mg test e

    Used hcg and arimi on cycle

    Pct'd like a champ.

    HUGE strength gains but need more endurance.

    Stats

    25
    5'10
    207q
    13%BF

    Will be

    250mg Test E 12 Weeks(3.5 days)
    400mg EQ 12 Weeks(weekly)
    Halo last 5 weeks , not sure what dosage. I might save halo for the next cycle. If not was thinking 50 mg ED.

    RUn hcg on cycle(3.5 days) with Arimidex every other day

    75/50/50/50
    40/20/20/20 for pct with nolva and clomid

    What you think?

    What was your decision behind your choice of compounds?

    So you're running 500mg/wk test E correct? What are your goals? You may not see the results you desire with 400mg/wk eq. Frankly, you won't find much love for EQ here. If you're going to to it, you may see better results at 6-800mg/wk.

    Can't speak too much on halo as I've never taken it but your dosage and length are not uncommon. I think 4weeks at 40mg/ed is regarded to be a safe length and dose due to halos toxicity.

    Increased hemoglobin

    Increased hematocrit

    Increased RBC(more so than others)

    Those top two alone are what I'm interested in. I've looked into EPO but it seems like a dangerous path. Although I've also read and heard from people that EPO is more for ULTRA MEGA endurance and can be dangerous. I'd like to take EPO but keeping an eye on hematocrit is tough and expensive.

    Halotestin also has a volumizing effect on the physique, and for those with low a body fat percentage, this will cause an immediately more contest ready appearance. This is due, at least in part, to Halos ability to increase mean hematocrit with and hemoglobin level as well as red cell mass (4)(5)(6). Halotestin also appears to act through cells already committed to respond to erythropoietin (11), which is good news for athletes, of course. As you can see, Halo has quite a profound effect on red blood cell production, and this action is clearly one of the most obvious mechanisms by which it is thought to exert its effects with regards to increasing strength and energy levels. It also points to the possibility of using it for athletics and sports where a high VO2 max is needed, such as Rugby, Mixed Martial Arts, etc.

    One of the most pronounced effects in Equipoise is its ability to raise your RBCs (red blood cells). This is very typical of anabolic steroids ; however, Equipoise would appear to do it to a slightly greater degree than most. One of the other effects most Equipoise users report is an increased appetite. I can say that this is true of me, also; this factor makes it impossible for me to diet on it. Its because of this ability to increase appetite.

    Test for strength but strength doesn't really need to be any higher.

    I just need a little endurance boost and I'll be games ready. I might do a longer halo but it's so damn expensive.

    I had MASSIVE strength gains from 500mg test e. I am currently off it. I've read that pumps are rough for CrossFit and high doses of anything. Thus the reduced eq and test. But stacked with test eq and halo I think I would still be able to gain quite a bit if strength. Perhaps HGH as well.

    Goals are CrossFit games.

    Agreed. I've run EQ twice. Don't think I'll use it again. Didn't impress me at all and the increase in RBCs was a problem. I saw a slight bump in appetite, but nothing really significant.

    I've run HALO once. Loved it BUT, the strength gains (as crazy as they are) will be short lived. HALO use is apparently common among MMA fighters (maybe our MMA gurus here can elaborate) because it elevates aggression and strength for a fight. I'm planning on using HALO once more, perhaps in the summer. I liked the strength gains, but like I said, it doesn't have any long term benefit IMO.

    That's why I think I might leave it out. And switch the halo with HGH. I don't have a problem running HGH for 6-8 months at a time.

    Halo is pretty serious oral, great for power lifting. Very toxic and very expensive. If you are looking for strength gains, I would recommend anadrol .

    I only need a little more strength. I mean cleaning 500 would be nice but it would inhibit everything else.

    Yes it is. I run HGH year round but usually take 30-60 days off. Depending on my goals, I cycle HGH a little differently. For cutting I usually inject 5-6iu fasted in the AM. When bulking, I run 10-15iu and split the dose (once in the morning, and immediately after workouts).

    Only problem with 15ius is you use a lot more product in a shorter time, hence more money.

    I'm not bulking though so I won't need a terribly huge amount.

    If I stopped the cardio bullshit 500 would come easy. At age 27 I might switch to only oly lifting. Would enjoy putting 500 pounds overhead.

    Why run the EQ @ 800 instead of 500-600?
