    Frontloading test e with prop?

    First 4 weeks test prop 35 mg ed with 500 mg of test e so I will be getting 750 mg of test my first 4 weeks and then just stop prop for the rest of my cycle?
    Week 1-4 prop Ed 35 mg 250 mg of test e Tues/thurs! 750 mg
    Week 4-10 test e 250 mg tues/thur 500 mg total!
    Will this be better than trying switch esters mid cycle?

    Test E takes some time to kick in, so starting your cycle with test prop in the first weeks will make you feel the effects faster. This is a common approach, when you use long esters you can kick start your cycle with a shorter ester of the same compound (or a different compound, if you know what you're doing).
    In the first 2 weeks, you're actually not getting 750 mg of test, enanthate takes some time to be utilized and you'll be feeling prop mostly. In the first two weeks you can use a higher amount of prop and taper it down in week 2-4 as you start to feel enanthate kicking in.

    So what about my plan
    Test prop 35 mg Ed with e 250 mg twice a week? Someone told me it will stall my gains due to higher myostin? Really depressed donít wanna miss out on gains!

    Thats utter bullshit, switching esters have nothing to do with myostatin.
    For first two weeks use prop at 50 mg ed and taper down to 35 mg ed for another two weeks before dropping it. Keep enanthate at 250 mg e3.5d whole time. Thats what I would do, if I were to frontload it.

    Sounds like a plan may I ask why to lower prop dosage instead of just keeping it the same at 35 mg?

    It will take some time for enanthate to reach peak levels until so you’ll use prop at highrr dosage. As the test e kicks in, no need to keep prop that high if you don’t want to use test at more than 500 mg pw.
    You should start test e from first week, not from week 4.

    Yah that was what I planning on doin will this schedule work
    Week 1-4 250 mg of prop/500 mg of test e
    Week4-8 test e 500 mg a week?
    My confusion is Can I just keep prop at 35 mg a day instead of 50 for the fisrt two and 35 for the last two weeks?

    I'll simplify this, but also state what I believe will give you the most gains.
    run 1000mg of test E per week from day 1
    run 350mg of test prop per week from day 1 until week 4 (100mg EOD)

    done. don't really need to over complicate Testosterone

    Hey man thanks but I only have enough test to run 500 mg of e a week
    So it will look like this test prop 250 mg a week with 500 mg of e a week week 1-4
    Test e 500mg every week 4-10
    My question is will I have gains?

    Buy more test or buy another compound.

    Gains are really going to be determined by diet, training, sleep, and lifestyle factors the drugs are the smallest part of the equation.

    I ran two test only cycles at the beginning and found them to be a complete waste of time.

    Why don’t you just wait until you have more on hand. What if you drop your only vial of test on the ground come week 6? You’re gonna be sad.

    I don't think front loading is necessary personally, but i completely understand why people want to do it.
    I calculated stuff for you because using different esters makes it complicated since the longer ones need to build up
    If you want to do 500mg test c/e per week:
    First (Monday) and second pin (Thursday) is 400mg
    Then 250 from then on
    I'm attaching 2 graphs, one is no front loading the other is w the front loading. W the front loading your levels will be stable at day "3.5" (which would be your second pin on the first Thursday of your cycle) Makes things much more simple using the same ester
    Good luck

    500 mg of test only per week is going to provide you with some androgen and estrogen effects, very little anabolic effects. the gains you get will be a little bit of puff and muscle fullness , but will not be putting on very much actual muscle tissue or solid gains.
    wither you front load or not , I'd not expect much out of this cycle

    If it fits your macros diet + 500 mg of Test + frontload of Prop (or not it's irrelevant) = mediocre cycle experience.

    There's all kinds of situations where you will get burned on your first cycle if all you buy is the bare minimum.

    If you can't afford the two cheapest steroids (Dbol and Test) then you really shouldn't be cycling as this is not a cheap lifestyle.

    those 'solid transformations' generally occur in someone who is fairly untrained to begin with.. they get on a little test only cycle and thats their motivation to actually train and diet consistently for once in their life.
    OR. they had naturally very low test levels to begin with and getting on a test only cycle resulted in some super compensating effects. but for most guys that are already well trained, know how to eat, been at this for years, etc.. 500mg of test isn't going to do a whole lot (thats why that dose is generally a TRT or cruise dose for a lot of guys when off cycle)

    if 500mg of test transforms you, its likely because you were fairly untrained newb to begin with

    ^ edit - absolutely nothing wrong with that of course. even if your a new lifter if some test can help you maximize your gains, then good

    I can afford Dbol but don’t wanna mess around with orals because I heard they can cause bid side effects and heard Dbol is very dangerous!

    I used to eat skinless chicken breast and white rice but it was to low in cals so switched to skin chicken breast I eat at least 2g of protein a day anywhere from 400 grams to 600 grams, and my goal is to gain weight I don’t eat any junk food just a lot of red meat which I thought was bad for bodybuilding and white rice or spaghetti with brussel sprouts! No candy,chips,pastry’s etc!

    You heard wrong, but it’s a common misconception so no worries. It’s probably less harsh on your body that eating 600g of protein. That’s a waste fella. If you were on everything under the sun that might be practical, but all you’re doing is putting unnecessary strain on your kidneys.

    Hey man but can you answer my question directly
    Will taking test prop 250 mg Ew for first 4 weeks of cycle on top of 500 mg of test e a week yield best results or would I see better results just on test e 500 mg a week?

    Haha, a magic pill would be nice, I guess dbols the closest we got

    There’s lots of conflicting information for two reasons, 1 we are not all the same, no 1 way fits all! And 2nd, mainly because most people are fucking retards!

    One thing I will tell you for sure(or at least what I’ve come to realise), when it comes to steroids gearhead is your man, listen to him over all. He is god and we are he’s disciples...

    Front loading with the prop will grant you the better results. Probably only to a small degree, but yes.

    600grams of protein is beyond excessive. All your doing is using protein as a very expensive fuel source at that point.

    Save some money, buy more gear, and use the time to educate yourself further on nutrition and training.

    To answer your question about Prop it doesn't matter whether or not you use it. The frontload is not going to what makes your cycle successful.

    It's not like frontloading will add an extra 1 on or muscle gain to your cycle - that's not how steroids work. Every single person is different .

    The three things that matter the most is sleep, training and diet. from your description of your meal plan, it needs a lot of work.

    Well why is my meal plan bad I hit my macros for the day what am I doing wrong? Just because I said red meat was bad doesnít mean I donít eat it like is said I eat several steaks every day or other day white rice rice or potatoes! I meal prep chicken breast and white rice for a snack but it comes out to like 250 cals when my tdee is 4,000 calories!

    It’s fun to come back after a long break and see the same conversations.

    Front loading can help on longer esthers. But also remember, that you are going to have elevated test for a week or so after your last injection as the esters finish breaking down and releasing their compounds.

    So even after your last injections, you need to keep your workouts and diet completely on point for a week or two as you will still have compounds working in your favor.

    Before I went on full time HRT, I was self treating with 50mg of prop EOD. I had about 1000 ml I had brewed, so it was readily available for me. When I saw an endocrinologist, I was totally upfront with what I was doing. He ordered labs. My test was at slightly over 2300. Yes. 2300! I am 5’10 and about 235lbs.
