I'd run it like thisOriginally Posted by redflashHell, I know this is going to get me some hassle from TOM, Foremanrules, etc for not running test only on my first cycle, but I'm looking for a steer on my second.
As background, I'm 46 and 175lbs and two years back into my training after a 20 year break. Natural test has fallen away. Before I lifted a weight I was a skinny teenager at 140lbs - please bear in mind my starting point and my age before telling me I should train naturally for another three years to reach my natural potential...
First cycle: EQ 300-400mg per week for 10 weeks. EQ selected as it is highly anabolic, has some androgenic capability and aromatisation but not as much as test; EQ alone because I wanted to take the advice on the board to try one drug alone so you know what it does to you. I have shed a pound or two of fat and put on ten pounds of muscle, so I'm happy. HCG used towards end of cycle, Nolva for PCT according to Foremanrules' recipe.
I have had some problems with oily skin, spots etc - nothing really embarrassing (which I can't afford in my line of business) but notiecable at times. Curiously enough, this seemed to be more of a problem after lifting the dose from 300 to 400, then my body seemed to setle into the higher dose.
Second cycle: I am thinking of either adding low dose test or tren; probably test because of the advice on the board. As well as fears of accelerated hair loss and acne, I have a fast temper which I don't want to mess with; so straight 500mg test per week is just not something I am willing to do. I'm also the secret juicer who needs to put his growth down to protein drinks, muscle memory, and anything else I can think of, so any bloat through water retention needs to be controlled.
What do you guys think of adding 200-250mg test to 300-400 EQ for a second cycle? I'll probably run Armidex 0.25 throughout to minimise bloat, HCG also, and Nolva for PCT; and I'll probably make it an 8-10 week cycle.
Attraction of tren is its profile of androgenic:anabolic. I'm picking up signals that I should save this for a later cycle but I'd appreciate any insights regarding safety etc.
Second cycle likely to be EQ and test then.
Thanks in advance,
Test @ 500 mgs
EQ @ 400 mgs
You pick how many weeks
Note watch your B/P. If it starts getting to a level you don't like, back the test down to 250 mgs and up the EQ to 600 mgs.
