Well it's my first cycle, wanted to keep it simple to see how it goes. Right now it's 300mg Monday and another on Thursday with aromasin 12.5 daily. Was teetering on the idea of running the test at 750 wk.
I'm doing the damn thing heavy! Thanks for the encouragement!!
Rated, I have enough to run 16 weeks if I so desired, always here to keep it at 12 so as far as right now, 12 weeks unless someone can give me good reasons to extend it longer. Next week will be my 4th week (pins 7/8). I've been running 600mg a week thus far. Perhaps ride out the rest at 750 a week. Still debating.
Stay at 600mg lol that should be plenty for now. that will do wonders for you since that's around the time things start changing. How many cycles have you ran? Heavy's sticky on cycle for beginners has a ramp up of up to 1000mg for the last few weeks. Is say just listen to your body, if you feel the need to up it do so, of not stay at that dosage for a couple weeks. GL
If this is your first cycle, keep the doses low bro less is more. I'd do 400mg up to week 1-4, then 600mg weeks 5-9, then 800mg 9-12. You could up it 1000mg weeks 10-12 if you feel the need but it'd wait till then to make that decision as you should listen to your body to make that call. Train hard, get those meals in, u will put on weight fast. GL
Absolutely brother, get'n it done 5 days a week! Right now trying to dial in my "sweet spot" on the aromasin, was using 12.5mg a day, which turned out to be way too much, dried myself out and my joints are achy as hell.. no fun. Nipples were getting a little sensitive (or so I thought, maybe paranoia) so I dosed it every day, gonna cut it out for a few days see how I'm feeling and go from there. 7th pin yesterday was smooth as butter as always.
Gonna let it ride @600mg a week for now, just see how things go in the next few weeks, considering this is just the start of week 4, things should really start coming along nicely at this point!
Quick shout out to the ama reps always on point with responses, much appreciated!!
Figured I'd write a quick update, this is week 6 of my Test-E cycle. So far my weight is up about 10lbs from start. Keeping the water-weight down with the aromasin, right now pinning 1 1/2 mL on Monday and another 1 1/2 on Thursday. At this point I'd say my overall sense of "well-being" is there, just feel level and chill. In the gym, the time melts away so quickly I look at the clock and I'm like "damn!, I've been here this long already!!", so endurance is well up, as well as recovery time it seems. Without a doubt the biggest thing I notice is change in libido, thank god I have a girlfriend. Strength gains have been improving, nothing too dramatic at this point. People I haven't seen in a while are taking notice regarding physique change, tho looking at myself daily in the mirror, its a little harder for me to notice.
Ooooooook. So ended my Test-E only cycle. First pin was 6/30, last was yesterday 9/22.
Starting weight: 216lbs
Ending weight: 230lbs
Not sure about body fat..I'd say by looking it went down
Little info about my cycle. Was my first inj. cycle, so started safely @ 500mg /wk
Bumped it up to 750mg/wk ...... this ended up the amount I liked "best"
Finished @ 1000/wk.... didn't care for that much personally... seemed like that's when I got sides (slight acne, blood pressure higher)
So my thoughts overall: Went VERY well, learned how my body reacts to Test, I'd say that I definitely made some good gains in weight, body comp, and what I liked about it the most was it was a very "feel - good" cycle. Nice sense of well - being, minimal to no sides, libido, well lets just say thank god I have a gf.
I know there are cycles out there which produce much more drastic effects as far as body recomp and vascularity and such, but overall I enjoyed my time "on" very much.
Gong forward now, I had blood work done at my last job (when I had insurance) and my test levels came back on the low end for my age. Not far off from requiring TRT.. since then switched jobs, have no insurance now, so I am going to "cruise" for now until I have insurance again and can get back to the docs.
