First thread! Noob seeking advice, check out my stuff!
Hey everyone, thanks for coming in, I appreciate any and all help and advice I will get here.
1) Age: 22.5, 23 in June
2) Weight and Percent BodyFat: 195 lbs, 22% BF
3) Years of Consistant Training experience: Began training February 2011, seriously training since February 2012
4) Previous Cycle experience: None
6) Cycle Goals: Mass/recomp if possible
That's my basic info. Long story short is I've been obese most of my life, started 40% 240lbs in February 2011, worked my way down to where I am now. Suffered 2 herniated discs, 1 bulging in low back from stupid training. Went through months of hellish pain, physical therapy, and epidurals. None of it worked until I started being proactive and making my health a top priority. Today my back is no longer an issue, I suffer no symptoms and do heavy leg exercises including RDLs (occasionally front squat, no deads). Routine is lifting 5 times a week, cardio after every session. Over the past several months I have become increasingly strict with diet. High protein (150-180g), moderate carbs (150-200g), moderate fats (100-130g). At the moment I am trying to lean out.
By cycling I am hoping to add 5-8+ lbs of raw muscle that I can successfully retain as well as dropping some fat. Before making this post I thoroughly read Anabolics 2009 and made 10+ pages of notes to read up on. I'm hoping I have at least a basic working knowledge of AAS.
Test E - 500mg (bi-weekly injections of 250mg)
Methenolone acetate - 100mg/day (Also considered EQ 400mg/week but prefer not to because of advice I have read on here of it's lack of effectiveness)
My reasoning for running the primo on top of the test is to gain some leaning/hardening effect to muscle gained. I would like to run acetate instead of enanthate simply so I do not need to be injecting two compounds per week.
PCT (much of this is based off Anabolics 2009 and truthfully I am confused by conflicting routines I have read on here)
Beginning 2 weeks after last Test E injection
hCG - 2500 IU every other day for 16 days
Clomid - 50mg twice a day for 30 days
Nolvadex - 20mg per day for 45 days
On here I've read about arimidex to take during cycle but I am uncertain of how that would work, need some clarification.
I've got a lot more questions but I don't want to make this too long (as if it isn't already), would appreciate any insight you guys can provide.
