My contribution to other hard working bodybuilders.
Ok so I have done a lot of trial and error in my time bodybuilding and a ton more reading and just want to share my insights and hindsights so hopefully the bodybuilding world won't be so cluttered with confusing information.
First if I could go back and start my first cycle again I would have tried a Primo Depot/Anavar stack because of the minimal shut down and added in testosterone boosters because evidently our own natural testosterone is 3 times more effective than synthetic, so if Letro can multiply test levels by 5 times great! Would have been an indefinite cruise if bloodwork panned out.
Second, for the grear that does shut us down Test of course becomes our base for any cycle. There is a lot of guessing on dosing, actual test and effectiveness. From my experience the pain from Prop even in Sust is no different than pinning Suspension ED with much better results and more consistent blood levels. For painless I choose Test En because its the highest mg/ml hg test with a shorter half life than Cyp and more actual test after ester that can be more evenly matched to other Enanthate blends. Half lifes have driven me nuts and for the record Schering is my source for Test En half life of 7 days, Pfizer states 8 days for Cyp. Now if you take the half life of 7 days and figure in 72% actual test you can determine a daily release rate similar to suspension to get similar results. Lets use a conservative dose of Suspension of 50mg ED for comparison. 50x7x2/.72=972.2mg inititial dose or simply 1g of 4ml and then 2ml E7D to maintain a 51mg daily release rate. Of course you would double the dose to double the release rate. Front loading makes sense but can also be an exact science. On a side note DMT is a nonaromatizing test that is 12 times more anabolic on paper than oil test that I have had impressive experience with the PPlex version, similar to dbol euphoria and halo aggression without the sides
Third, There are 3 steroids that help Test work better and 2 even help each other work better, Proviron, Winstrol, and Masteron. All 3 are antiestrogenic and unbind testosterone. Masteron actually helps with cholesterol that Winstrol may worsen and can be had in Enanthate to stack with Test En. If I were a UGL I would have been adding Winstrol to my cut mix. Just because Winstrol is water based doesnt mean you cant cut it with an oil and you could do 100mg EOD with a cut mix.
4th, so now we have 4 Steroids as an actual base to build on. At the beginning of a cycle Anadrol and EQ are good for appetite and blood volume, especially as they are more anabolic than the other more androgenic steroids used for cutting. At the end of a cycle Tren, Anavar, and Primo would be good additions for finishing. As I mentioned before Primo and Anavar may be good for bridging or cruising with PCT.
I have never used HCG because it seems so sensitive and cant get consistent recommendations on length of use or when to use OCT or PCT.
My PCT consists of 1.25mg Letro/week and 150mg Clomid ED. Never used Nolvadex either.
I also should add that everyone responds differently and sometimes there's even nonresponders. No matter how much Oral Tren I take it doesnt work but my buddy would be on half my dose and have insomnia and night sweats. Some people lose their appetite on some or get stomach upset. Never can assume how something will work until you have experienced it. Another thing I wish I had done is log individual steroid affects when I first began before going gung ho and stacking as much as I could and then trying to figure out whats causing the sides. At first I thought Sust caused my rash of backne but then when I wasted more money on Deca and read some more I figured out it was the Deca.
