    First AAS CYCLE AT 42 years old

    Hello everyone. Well I decided after doing research to do a test cyp only cycle. After hitting 40 started to feel a bit more tired and old. Been contemplating doing this for some time. Gym time was always good except for a longer recovery time. Sooo I decided to take the plunge.
    Any way I'm running 300 mg test cyp a week. Pinning on Mon and thurs. Also taking aromasin every 3 days (12.5mg). I'm going into week 4 and feeling pretty good. First couple of weeks kind of sucked. Was bloated and had red face along with feeling very hot. Started taking the AI EVERY 3 days instead of eod and that helped with the bloating and feeling hot all the time.
    So far I've been able to push harder in the gym and feel very alert. No real sides except for the ones mentioned earlier.
    Questions and /or comments appreciated!

    Are you running HCG as well, 250iu 2x a week to keep the boys full and sensitized. Do you have your PCT on hand?

    Good to hear it's a test only cycle to start, lots of time people plan multiple compounds for their first crack at it.

    Sounds like you've done some research, best of luck wth the journey

    I would have told you to get bloodwork with a full hormone panel first so that you could know what your natural testosterone levels were. That would have been the best thing for you to have done. Without knowing your baseline, it's going to be hard to tell if you've recovered. If you're on trt, then omit what I said.

    Its imperative to use proper ancillaries while on. Even though you are running a very low dose in my opinion, you need to stay on top of your estrogen levels. Aromasin or armidex will be fine. And as stated above, hcg should be used. I would throw in some cialis, especially during pct. That is, if you're not on testosterone replacement .

    What made you decide to use your testosterone at 300mgs weekly if you don't mind me asking? Not that it won't work, it will! But 500-600mgs is the typical starting dose for a longer ester test like cypionate .

    Read up on the importance of hcg . Whether you use it or not, you need to be educated on it. I only really took it seriously the past couple of years, and I reget it very much so now.

    Run it to 12 weeks, Cyp is slow and probably won't truly kick in until week 5-6. So you'll have another 6 weeks after to make use of the increased test levels.

    Good luck on your journey brother. You're just a few years older than me. AAS makes me feel like Superman when I'm on cycle, I really enjoy it. You may as well. Its not just the GAINZ I like about it either. It helps me sex drive, focus, overall life intensity, etc. The mental benefits are almost as good as the physical.

    Your hot flashes and bloating were more than likely from the sudden influx of test. Your body then finds a new homeostasis. Take some time and read the Successful First Cycle sticky thread at the top of this forum and tailor your cycle toward that as best you can.
