    Starting to put a cycle together. Feedback appreciated

    So I've been reading this forum for a while and I'm putting together the start of what my first cycle will be. I've heard mixed opinions regarding first cycles being test only and that is what I'm leaning toward right now but have also considered running anavar for the last 8 weeks of a 12-week cycle.

    Considering these two options at the moment:

    A:
    weeks 1-12 Test E 500mg/wk (250 Mon morning and 250 Thurs evening)

    B:
    weeks 1-12 Test E 500mg/wk (250 Mon morning and 250 Thurs evening)
    weeks 4-12 Anavar 50mg/day

    HCG 250 iu 2x/wk
    Amiridex .25mg every other day until PCT

    The goal is a lean bulk. I'd appreciate any feedback. I'm still a while off from this as I want to do plenty more research but this is where my head is now. Perhaps from pros and cons of stacking the anavar would be helpful if anyone has any. I've read plenty about the compound itself but not as much as part of a stack.

    Single compound (ie Test only) first cycles make sense from one big perspective: there is only one molecule in play. So, if you start having sides, you know what is causing it.

    If you did want to add the var, you might consider ramping up the dose to assess tolerance. Say, start with 10 or 20 mg per day for a week, and ramp up by 10 a day each week until you get to 50 per day or have sides. Still, even in that scenario, you couldn't say for sure which compound was causing problems.

    AI use should be handled by blood work, but I personally don't see anything wrong with being safe. Still, maybe .25 mg 2x per week would be a better starting point. It is possible you won't need it at all, but blood work will tell the tale. I will say I DO think an AI makes sense in the weeks after your last pin and leading up to PCT because that seems like prime time for estrogen dominance to start.

    If your goal is a lean bulk, that has more to do with your diet than anything else. I would go with option A and keep things simple for your first time.

    And if you're looking to bulk in future cycles, there are better options than anavar .

    Yeah I've got my diet in check really well over the last year or so. I've had more success from that than from the years of lifting i did when I was younger while eating what I wanted.
    I'll likely end up doing a test only cycle just because as the other poster mentioned, I like the idea of knowing exactly what is affecting my body but just wanted to get some input on possibly running anavar alongside it.

    First cycle I would just stick to test...

    Say you get acne, or painful pumps, or anxiety, or the sweats, or whatever...
    You'll have no idea what is causing the problem if you take 2 compounds.

    Trust me...
    You'll do another cycle.
    And can add another compound then.

    Makes sense. Thanks for the response.
