    Test/deca cycle info w/ PCT ?






    ok, Im 195 lbs. do have about 15% body fat, I am at my maximum gain/strength and here's what I am wanting to do..
    1st of all, I read the sticky on PCT's, a lot of opinions on that one...
    I've taken a couple of shots of deca and (sus)test 250.

    bodybuilders at my gym suggested doing the following:
    12 week cycle
    1st 6 weeks
    Mon: 1cc of deca 300 and 1 cc of sus 250 (amp)
    thurs: 1cc of deca 300 and 1 cc of sus 250 (amp)

    2nd 6 weeks -will be introducing test 400
    mon: 1cc of deca 300 and 1 cc of test 400
    thurs: 1cc of deca 300 and 1 cc of test 400

    ..following the cycle "PCT" this is where I get a little confused...
    ive read on Nolvadex, clomid and HCG
    should I use all three of them for the "Post" treatment, a little of each?

    I would appreciate any suggestions on the "12 week" cycle and the PCT...thanx

    Nolvadex can affect the eyes as well, but it seems to be clomid has the effect more often and/or worse. You dont want to run that stuff to long or to heavy. I have actually had some blue spots before while on clomid, which actually I have forgotten about by now.

    so, should I do less mg's on the cycle?

    when should clomid or nolvadex be used? 3 wks prior ending of cycle at end of cycle?
    -related to above question...what is the dosage needed and for how long?

    thanx

    Hey bud

    Through my research i've learned that nolvadex is the better choice over clomid, as many ppl on the board agree as well. With clomid you jus get pms like a bitch would during her period. Normally you'd start ur PCT 3 weeks after ur last stick of deca. After that it would look like this:

    Week 15: 5000IU HCG + 20 mg Nolvadex daily
    Week 16: 5000IU HCG + 20 mg Nolvadex daily
    Week 17: 2500IU HCG + 20 mg Nolvadex daily
    Week 18: 20 mg Nolvadex daily
    Week 19: 20 mg Nolvadex daily
    Week 20: 20 mg Nolvadex daily

    These numbers are from the article that mudge posted on PCT. It'd b a good idea to read that as it is definitely helpful. From what I gather, and from my own personal research, you'd be ok running smaller amounts of HCG for your PCT.

    Because you are running a longer cycle and your are using Deca (which tends to completely shut u off), you should also lookin into HCG during a cycle just so ur nuts dont shrink. I have heard 500IU twice a week is sufficient. This stuff is all from my research as I'm still a beginner, so it probably needs tweeking by the experiences guys. Good luck bro.

    I have posted many thoughts on HCG and that is one protocol I would not follow. I did what research I could because I had problems with my nads on fina, and then with deca as well.

    250-500iu twice a week through the cycle keeps them from having issues, or every 4th day.

    This is what I plan to do, except I will stop HCG about 5 days prior to PCT. I will use sustanon, though.

    so run:

    Test enan 500 mg/ week for ten weeks
    HCG 250IU/twice a week

    PCT:
    Nolva three weeks after last dose of test at 20mg/day for 5 weeks?

    Use nolva through the cycle or not? everyone knows that test causes an excess of estroegen, so do u recommend the use of nolva durin the cycle to keep escess estro down, or should i jus keep the nolva on hand in case gyno comes around.

    It makes sense that if ur using HCG during a cycle (especially my simple cycle of test for ten weeks), that it wont be needed in the PCT, considering that ur nads would be somewhat normal (because of HCG throughout cycle), as far as i know its not an anti-estroegen...

    Thanks for the input bro

    Why wait three weeks? The half life is closer to 1.5 weeks. Some estrogen is beneficial for growth, so you should just keep the nolva "on hand" in case gyno does show. PCT is a time for recovery. HCG use would delay the recovery if taken during PCT.

    The higher the dose you use it will take longer to "clear" the system, so really it depends on several factors.

    deeno, you got it right.

    1-10 Test enanthate 500 mg/week (preferably in two shots)
    1-11 HCG 250-500 iu twice a week or E4D
    13-16 maybe even 17,18 Nolvadex 20mg/day

    of course, keep nolva on hand just in case you develop gyno symptoms during cycle. in that case 40 mg/day until you get back to normal, then continue 20 mg/day until week 16
    Gambatte!

    i am following a very similar cycle, with the adition of deca. My only question is why do u cut off the HCG during the 11 week. I would think on runnign it up to the 13 week, and immidiatly start PCT.

    If you had a 5k iu amp of HCG and you were doing a 10 week cycle you may as well start right off with it.

    Punctuation and sentence structure goes a long way when you want people to understand what you are saying, thebishop. Welcome to IM. BTW.
