Beginner Cycle Advice

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

What are your opinions of 500 mg test e per week? as I have heard several times this is overkill for a first cycle.

Also, are clomid and nolvadex both required for PCT?

 

Thanks

Hey bro, it just depends on you and how you respond, some people can get away with 300mgs others need more, I would start at 300mgs weekly and use weighing and skin folds first thing in the morning each fortnight to assess your progress, if your not growing and the training and calories are in place increase your dose, it’s all dependant on you and how you respond to the compounds, as long as your not a rec drug user you should respond fine. 

 

Your PCT depends on your blood work 1 month after ceasing your injection protocol, but if your serious about growing a productive off-cycle would suit you better.

Hey mate,

500mgs of Test-E is a overhyped cycle, but it is definitely a good starting cycle as you can see how your body reacts to the compound with minimum sides. I’d advise to inject twice a week Monday and Thursday as it will get you into a good routine and will help you understand the importance of keeping your blood levels stable if you were to jump on other compounds in the future. I’d say if you’re fairly lean to no use an AI as your gains will be greater if you’re estrogen is a little higher, and you won’t convert as much compared to someone with a higher body fat %. I’d advise to only use it if you see noticeable bloating or get sore nipples.  It you shouldn’t experience any bloating if you’re eating clean. It is true you will gain about 12-15 kgs over the course of your cycle but only around 4-8kgs will be muscle and the rest being water. All those gains will be kept depending on how experienced you are gunning before you started your first cycle regardless of PCT or not. If you’re advance you’re more likely to lose gains, but if you’re around the beginning to high novice you’ll be sweet. But yeah 250mg split twice a week isn’t bad, you can always start at 300mgs and increase it to 500mgs after a couple weeks
