    I'm willing to bet that you are going to need more than a 3 week PCT to recover from a 12 week cycle.

    Protocol for a 6 week all oral cycle is 4 weeks PCT and that always seemed to work best for me. Personally, I have never PCT'd after an AAS cycle. I hopped on and was hooked. Blast and cruise for me. However, from what I have gathered from research and just reading logs/forum posts/ect, the typical PCT for a 12 week AAS cycle is typically 6 weeks minimum.

    As always, the best thing to do is to have your PCT laid out before you start your cycle. After your allotted PCT time, get blood work done. That is really the only true way to know whether or not you are recovered. I just dont see you being recovered after 3 weeks of Nolva.

    My plan was 3 weeks for PCT and wait 15 weeks before starting a 2nd cycle, time on = time off.
    Obviously, I will get a blood work done before starting 2nd cycle. I already done my blood work before starting the cycle. Today is my 2nd day.
    If you do PCT for 6 weeks, do you wait for sometime before starting 2nd cycle provided that blood work shows normal?

    Again, it's all in your personal preference. But you are right. Protocol is time on=time off. Essentially, you'd be putting your second cycle off for an additional 6 weeks. 3 extra weeks of PCT and 3 extra weeks of being off. I, for one, dont necessarily think you need to take 18 weeks off between cycles though as long as you are fully recovered and feeling fine.

    1. Run your PCT for at least 4 weeks
    2. Get your hands on some HCG and run it starting in week 2 at 250iu's twice per week. Stop the week you start PCT
    3. Your diet sucks bro. 3 protein shakes and a protein bar is not what you need. You need to be taking in at minimum 320g of protein per day and I would do my best to get that from real foods like eggs, egg whites, chicken, Talapia, Cod, Turkey, Tuna, 93 lean ground beef. Your carbs should be coming from things like Oatmeal, Ezekiel bread, Natural PB, Asparagus, Kale, rice and potato's. And your fats from Natural PB, Avocados, Almonds, Walnuts, Virgin Olive Oil.

    What are your goals, to gain weight and size, then eat at the macro's for that weight but keep it clean. Your names not Jared!!!!

    Thanks, I am not sure if I can digest that much food but I will do my best. Hopefully, the cycle increases my appetite.
    My goal is to gain weight and size and it appears I will definitely consume lot more calories.

    Again, thanks.

    Nice cycle layout, it is a great cycle for a beginner, and will yield nice gains.

    Since you do want to PCT clomid is far superior are restoring LH and FH levels than nolva, Keep the nolva on hand in case of a gyno flare up ei sensitive nips, or if any lumps may form under your nipple areas. Also if you can get your hands on aromasin, at least for PCT because it is a type 1 AI, it lowers estrogen production, by attaching to thee aromatase enzyme and destroying it like a suicide bomber, hence why its a suicidal inhibitor. arimidex is a type 2 AI, this mean it blocks estrogen by attaching to the aromatase enzyme, allowing it not to convert how ever, since the enzyme is never destroyed, once the use of adex is discontinued, if not tapered off can cause estro rebound, which is not a fun experience.

    HCG in my opinion at 40 wouldn't be worth it to you, I'm assuming you have kids,or are done with having kids, and you can fully recover from this cycle with clomid, and a great AI, Also have you considered going on TRT? At 40 it could be very beneficial to you.

    I would run the following,

    1-12 Test CYP 500mg/wl
    1-4 Dbol 40mg/ed
    1-12 Adex .5mg eod or Aromasin 25mg/ed

    PCT

    14 100mg Clomid/ 25mg Aromasin
    15 75mg Clomid / 25mg Aromasin
    16 75mg Clomid / 25mg Aromasin
    17 50mg Clomid / 12.5mg Aromasin
    18 50mg Clomid / 12.5mg Aromasin


    This will recover you just fine, even at age 40. But again look into trt, and for a better PCT experience use a type 1 AI as while you are on PCT the increase of LH and FH will dramatically increase estrogen, hence why many people feel so emotional on clomid. Aromasin fixes that issue.

    Good luck brother.

    As for you diet to lose bf while increasing muscle you need the following

    Workout days - 3214 total cals
    240g Protien - 960cals
    394-395g Carbs - 1577 give or take depending on what you consume
    75g Fats - 677 cals

    Non workout days - 2487 total cals
    240g Protien - 960 cals
    114g Carbs - 451 cals
    118g Fats - 1068 cals


    Workout days, items like Rice, Pasta, Potatoes should fuel your carb intake, along side incidental fats you get from the meat you eat, like fish, lean meats, chicken, and nuts.
    Non workout days - avoid starches, you will get your carb intake from greens.

    Without going into to much detail into this diet, this will allow you to have the energy you need on workout days, as well as the protein, but then carbs will drop and fat will rise on rest days, all the while the protein stays the same, creating an environment in your body that will not only help you lose fat, but gain muscle at the same time.

    Again I do not know your workout routine, or what you do, these are just estimates on what Ive seen from your intitial post and age into consideration. No need to follow it to a T but rather a general reference as I do not have every variable that can come into play.

    Again good luck to you.

    Thanks OldschoolLifter,

    I really appreicate your detailed suggestion about PCT.

    I was thinking about using HCG but I will use Clomid and Aromasin for PCT as I have 2 kids and done.

    I am assuming TRT stands for test replacement therapy? No I never thought about it. What is the difference being on a cycle and TRT?

    I have a question about regarding injection. I injected 250mg test cyp on Tuesday into right quad as suggested and I feel pain in that area.
    I am assuming this is normal and wonder how long it will last? Is it OK to do leg workouts, squats, leg extensions and romanian deadlift?
    I am going to inject another 250mg in my left quad on Friday so I just want to make sure it is safe to do leg workouts.

    Thanks,
