    Critique my Cycle

    Looking for some feedback on my first test e cycle, particularly interested on what I should be doing for PCT as Iíll be running nolva throughout the cycle.

    500mg Test E weekly, broken up into 2 separate doses of 250mg. Week 1 - 8.

    10mg Nolvadex daily. Week 1-8.

    500iu of HCG weekly, broken up into 2 separate doses. Week 1-8.

    25mg Aromasin daily. Week 1-8.

    Would be great to know your thoughts on the cycle itself but my main question relates to PCT. As Iíll be running Nolva throughout, should I stop taking everything at the end of the 8 weeks and then start taking both nolva and chlomid as PCT, alongside aromasin?

    The decision to run nolva throughout was a difficult one, but I had mild gyno on one side years ago which has since been extracted, and Iím obviously very eager to ensure that doesnít happen again. It might limit gains slightly, but I prefer the extra safety net.

    Test seems to have a pretty rapid effect on me - I took my first injection yesterday evening and that same night noticed some pretty immediate effect - constant boner throughout the night and sweating pretty heavily. All good signs I hope!

    Eight weeks is not long enough. Should be at least twelve.
    Nolva is fine on cycle.
    Cut your Aromasin dose in half.
    Two weeks after last injection begin your pct. You should not need aromasin in pct.

    Appreciate the input mate, I’m fairly new to this so eager to learn.

    I have enough to run the cycle for longer if necessary. I guess I can make a final decision after the initial 8 weeks and go do 10/12.

    Regarding the PCT - should I continue my daily nolva dosage on the 2 weeks after my last pin and before officially starting PCT?

    Long esters really aren't going to kick in until about 4-6 weeks so if you don't extend it you'll really only be getting 2-4 "productive" weeks or so. You'll just be getting in to where you get the most bang for your buck and then you'll be stopping it. No reason to. Make this decision now and stick to your plan. The recommended beginners cycle is 12 weeks test only...

    Re nolva just keep running it at your low dose and when pct starts ramp it up to the appropriate dose. Right now it's only blocking any estrogen from attaching to chest receptors. It's not stimulating your HPTA in the presence of exogenous testosterone , but it will begin to do so once the test is out of your system.

    continue the nolva thru the cycle, and into PCT. Then run it 2 weeks longer than the clomid.

    My PCT plan was nolva at 40/20/20/20 and clomid at 75/50/50/50. I think I need to reconsider cycle length so not sure if I should run this for longer than the 4 weeks I had planned?

    Cheers dude, if 12 weeks seems like the sensible approach then so be it - 12 weeks it is!

    The injection itself was pretty much painless but my thigh does feel pretty stiff today - fairly common I guess? I tried the glute as a practice shot, but the twisting action felt pretty uncomfortable and gave me far less control, so I may just alternate between thighs.

    Also, the aspiration was a bit strange for me. I tried pulling the injection plunger up and it was difficult - like I was pulling against something almost. Injecting yourself is a pretty strange experience on the whole, but suppose like anything else you get better with practice.

    I hate glutes... I did them once... couldnt walk that night ( which sucked cuz i was a waiter, and had to walk all night at work... ugh... ) a tip, inject right before working out and inject what u work out... ie inject quads on a leg day, it helps alot!!!

    The aspiration u described was correct... it should be difficult, cuz it should be pulling against a vacuum... if its easy then its pulling up blood indicating ur in a vein which u should pull out, switch needles, resterilze and reinject...

    Since i Injected prop ED, I had much less to inject (0.5ml) I rotated quads, pecs, delts, bi's... and it worked fine... just like i said, inject what u workout that day..

    Thought I would give you guys an update on progress so far since you were good enough to give me some feedback on my cycle.

    First injection was relatively painless but PIP was pretty terrible after it.

    2nd injection, again painless, much less PIP this time - must be improving my technique or something.

    3rd injection - hit a nerve! For anyone wondering how you know you hit a nerve...you just know. There’s honestly no mistaking it. I basically withdrew the needle as a reflex action and started again.

    There’s no significant feeling of being ‘on’ just now, although I think my body looks slightly harder, but it could just be a placebo. The physiological effect is quite amusing. This is my first cycle after patiently training for over a decade and seeing good but steady results. Within a few days on being ‘on’ I’m left wondering why I haven’t turned into the Incredible Hulk yet

    The general consensus seems to be that gain really kick into action after 6 weeks or so, what’s the reason behind this?
