    40 yr old newbie looking for advice

    Hey guys, I wanna start a cycle very soon, so I'm looking for advice. I am 40 years old, 5'11"
    183 pounds with very little body fat. I have always been a gym rat but I'm looking for more at my age. A friend gave me some Sustanon 250 a while back so I did it for 10 weeks of 1ml per week. I loved the gains from it and new then that I was hooked. Anyways, I've been doing lots of reading and research but I'm just as overwhelmed as before. I'm just looking to be in great shape, nothing really serious. I was considering just doing a cycle of test but not sure about the PCT? Any help pointing me in the right direction is appreciated

    Check the stickies. There is a good one called first cycle and PCT. It has everything you really need to know about a basic.

    Ostarine is a pretty nice addition to pct. You'll keep a lot more
    of your on cycle gains. Something you may want to look into

    Well Sustanon is test, so in a sence you already did a light cycle of test. Although at 250 mg a week that was more like a TRT dose

    When you do your cycle you can use sust again, but for a beginner testE is best its easier to keep blood levels stable. You will want to run 500-600 mg a week and will need some form of AI . Then also PCT stuff , unless at your age you want to just enter the world of blast/cruise, which of course is a big commitment.

    48 year youngster here. Good advice from the bros so far. Keep us posted on when you start and we'll help you fine tune. I personally am cruising Test C and can't say enough about how great my life is now. Welcome.

    At 40yrs old you need to be prepared for the fact you may not recover ...espc if you run a few cycles ...like the others said...something in the 500mg ew range should suffice...I would get baseline labs for sure at 40+....you need to know where your hormone and health markets are at..

    One more thing. What's the smallest amount of Test I can do without needing an AI, or is this even possible? It seems you need to be a full blown chemist to be on a regular cycle with all the different steroids these days.
    It just seems very complicated and I really don't want to go about this aimlessly like most of my friends. Any ideas?

    Do you guys think that if your over 40 you need to have more aggressive PCT to recover?

    Bloods would help the certainty of what you may need or not for your PCT. But, I would also go on how you feel and how your nuts respond. If you plan on low dosing, you MAY not need a large PCT cycle.
