  1. Hi I'm on my 1st cycle I'm running testoject 400 excel pharma for 12 weeks. A.I arimadex 0.5mg EOD. I originally wanted to just take test e no more than 500mg every week, but was given tj400 and told was a lot better, I'm taking 2ml every week, so E 300mg/C 300mg/P 200mg. My concern is I'm now taking 800mg total, and unsure weather I'm now at more risk of side effects? Do the esters come into play here (time release etc) or would it just be as strong or have as much effect as taking just test e or any other @ 800mg. I've read the doses for the average user for anabolic purposes would be. (Per week, this is the guideline I'm following). Test e 400-500mg. Test c 200mg. Test p 100mg (E.O.D)
  2. So, the question that must be asked... Was Mike Tyson on steroids, or was he just a genetic freak, that many people say he is? Personally, I don't believe 109 kg's of muscle around 15% bodyfat at 177cm's is logic, especially not considering how explosive he was, atleast not naturally. Ofcourse, Mike Tyson had a crazy training routine, but as seen in videos he never trained weights HEAVY, maximum squat recorded on VIDEO is him repping 100kg's (225lbs), doing sit-ups and a few other machines that aren't really linked to explosive movement in the body. Discuss! I personally believe he was on some kind of muscletech, but what kind of cycle I'd dream of knowing, he must've been on something from his late teens, which obviously hasn't been a problem for him so far. Only my opinion though!
  3. Hi, i am planning to start my second cycle on Monday, and i would appreciate any suggestions an advice, a bit of a background, when i was 21 i weighed 128KG, i was massive "mostly fat". i went through a harsh diet for 12 months, lots of training "cardio and weights" and i lost 35kg - 75lbs, i kept on/off BB since and i have been more committed in the past 4 years, i have managed to keep my weight in the 75-80 KG for the last 8 years by shedding fat and gaining muscle "slow and steady with minor set backs and then back on track". December 2016 i did my first cycle, i was a fool then and i still consider my self ignorant , but i did Deca, Tren, Primo and Test. it was 6 weeks cycle of 10Ml total of each compound with test at higher dosage 15ml. diet was bad but training was on Point. i gained a lot in size, strength and lost some fat, i am guessing gained 20lbs and lost 5 lbs fat "gains were probably 30% water weight". after the cycle i had no issues with gyno but i was completely shut down, my testicles shrunk and i had no erections. it was cool since i was always horny on cycle and i had lots of sex :). started using clomid, ZMA, Tribulus and i was back in action in 2 weeks. within 6 weeks i have lost most water weight and lost more fat by hard training and good diet. i was back in 78kg, lost 5 more lbs of fat and i was as strong on cycle but not as big "thanks to loosing all the water bloating". i am 31 my current stats are: weight 76KG - 167Lbs height 180CM - 5.10" BF, not sure but its probably 17-15% Bench - 230 lbs 1 rip max Squat - 200 lbs 1 rm dead lift - 300lbs 1 rm for my second cycle i want to do 6 weeks of tren and test, i have the following compounds Tri-Tren 150 (20ml) TrenE 50, TrenA 50 and TrenH 50. TestMatron 400 (10ml) TestE 200, TrenE 100 and MastE 100 Week 1 - 5 Monday and Thursday 2ml Tren and 0.75 TestM (550-700 Tren and 300Test and 150M) (i will up the tren gradually from 1.8 to 2.2 as i progress) Week 6 Monday 2ml TestM (200 Tren and 400 Test and 150M), this way i can start the PCT sooner, i am going to start clomid (should i do it on Tuesday or should i wait longer?) in terms of diet, 5-6 meals a day, lots of protein (Eggs, Tuna, cottage cheese, Low Carb Protein Shake, lean protein, high protein Veg), mid to low fat (mostly egg yolks, fish, nuts and avocado), low carbs (high carb protein shake, berries, bananas). my goal is build muscle and try to burn as much fat as possible, so timing is content is key, any suggestions on Carbs timing (i am thinking after main training and possibly after morning cardio, but i am worried i wont have the energy to kill it in workouts??) Training, i've been doing German volume training with super sets for 3 weeks now and i will continue for the first 2-3 weeks of cycle, by that time the gear will kick in and then i will start pushing my 1 rip max. Cardio, Morning Cardio before breakfast (10-15 minutes run or a body weight circuit) + Cardio on Chest, Back and rest days "no cardio on legs day" what do you guys think? am i missing anything, or is my cycle off in anyway? i will post some photos later and try to keep updating with progress cheers,
  4. People of this forum, hope your all well and things are going good.

The next cycle will be similar only dbol will replace var That's the plan. Interested in particular AI's you guys prefer on cycle in response. Anyway getting lab test next week take it from there.

  5. Hey guys, I am completely new to the world of AAS, but I have been planning a first cycle which I'll undertake in a week or two and that consist of tbol only: - 7-8 weeks - 50mg per day - PCT Nova 4 weeks (possibly add a natty booster such as DAA here depending on how I feel) - Liv52, Coenzyme q10, Biotin, Taurine (& possibly potassium or electrolytes for back pumps?) Now just a couple questions: 1) should I gradually up the dose to reach 50mg hence maybe starting at 25mg for the first 1-2 weeks? 2) Can I use stem/stim free pre workouts products or not necessary when on-cycle? 3) General thoughts and advices please on the above? I have thought also of running an Epistane cycle instead and leave AAS for a later date. Many people I spoke to tho advised to leave PH as results don't come close whereas sides do..tho I have researched Epi and it seems a good compound for slow/sustained gains in lean mass which is what I am after. Been lifting seriously 2years, diet etc. Plateaud multiple times but recently managed to put on 2.5kg of muscles. Stats 5.7'' 73.5/74 kg and 26y.o. Never taken AAS or PH, only Animal Stak 2 cans straight just finished and worked well.
  6. Started my first ever cycle yesterday. I'm doing 30 day Nanodrol cycle. Label says 2,17a-methyl-5a-androsta-1-en-17b-ol-3-one (not sure what that means). I'm 31, Irish. 6'1. Currently weight 80kg. I'll measure my arms etc next chance I get. I'll take 0.5ml in morning and 0.5ml in the evening as instructed on the label. In the morning before training with food and evening before food also. The next part I'm mentioning as I had to research how to take it, so for some may sound obvious but for me I didn't now if you were to mix it with water or something, but I read it's best to just put the small tube thing to the back of the tongue and release the 0.5ml and follow down with a drink. So yesterday (26.05.17) I trained bi-cep and chest. At this stage I had only taken 1 dose so obviously no big change in my strength or energy etc. Today I trained legs (3 doses taken at this stage). I didn't go in feeling particularly fired up or anything by I ended up hitting my targets and had good energy. Again, prob too early to see if that's Nanodrol kicking in or just a good day. ...I'll come back with updates as much as possible. I'd like to keep this as kind of diary of the progress. OH......and any ADVICE re PCT (post cycle therapy) would be great as I should order something now to have it on time. I've read bits about Nolvadex and test boosters but still cloudy on the subject.
  7. Hi all, So I was hoping for all the guys who are on the enhanced avenue of lifting, could you give me some insight as to how coming off your 1st (or any other) cycle was? Its my 1st cycle and my last pin tomorrow!! Did the strength loss/loss of some size mess with your head? Did you notice a lethargy for a while after, or any other adverse effects of coming off? I am just super nervous... I have a 6 week PCT at hand of nolva/clom, I was just hoping you guys could share your experiences... cycle length, compounds used, difficulty/length of recovery and PCT used. Thanks for replies in advance :)!
  8. Hi i've just finished my first Test E cycle as outlined by the very detailed article below Im planning my next cycle to be Test E and Deca, Can anyone outline what the optimal cycle would look like? Thanks
  9. Hi there, I've been planning on taking my first ever steroid cycle. I've been working out for few years now and I'm currently on the cut.... I have done my research about winstrol but obviously not good enough since this still gets me: I see people saying there is no need to stack winstrol with TEST if winny is taken ORALLY? Could anyone please either back this up or demolish it? Wouldn't Winstrol Oral Only Cycle still ruin my libido levels? Thanks
  10. Hello all, I have decided at the beginning of June I am going to be doing my first cycle. I'm 27 years old, have been training solid for about 5 years. 6'1 and 185lbs, I'm pretty lean at around 11-12% BF (last tested with callipers about a month ago). I'm literally looking for lean gains, nothing drastic, I have friends who have been on 500mg EW + DBOL etc and have just ballooned up and it's been so obvious. I'd be very happy with 10lbs of lean muscle gain, that would be awesome for me. My diet is spot on and I will adjust as needed, 40% Protein, 40% carbs and 20% fat and around 3000-3500 calories, I log all my meals. I've done a lot of research and I feel the following cycle is best suited for me and would appreciate some feedback, good or bad haha: Week 1: Test-E 300mg Week 2: Test-E 300mg Week 3: Test-E 300mg Week 4: Test-E 300mg Week 5: Test-E 300mg + Var 60mg E/D Week 6: Test-E 300mg + Var 60mg E/D Week 7: Test-E 300mg + Var 60mg E/D Week 8: Test-E 300mg + Var 60mg E/D Week 9: Test-E 300mg + Var 60mg E/D Week 10: Test-E 300mg + Var 60mg E/D Week 11: N/a Week 12: N/a Week 13: N/a Week 15/16/17 (PCT): Nolva 40/20/20 & Clomid 100/50/50 I may not necessarily even add the Var in yet. I am only doing 10 weeks rather than 12 as I can't find anywhere that does 12 1ml packs. I will be pinning once per week. Like I said, I am not interest in packing on loads of mass and 'making the most of my first cycle' 'This is too low of a dose' etc. I am not interested in competing and being huge, my aim is to be sub 10% body fat with some nice gain in lean muscle. I play a lot of sports so this will be ideal for me 14 stone and low BF is my target. Plus 300mg is still 4/5 x the natural amount of test produced by the body so I'd like to think you would still see some nice gains. Where I also need help is with the use of an AI, I have been thinking of Arimidex 0.25mg EOD. Will it be best to take this even though the dose of Test is fairly low? I have looked everywhere about PCT and after the last jab of test-e I have read to have nothing and let it leave your system for either 2 or 3 weeks. This will work well for me if I leave it for 3 weeks as I can start this as soon as I am back from holiday. If 2 weeks if better I will just start my cycle a week later in June. I would appreciate some feedback on the doses of the PCT as this is where I read the most conflicting information online. Thanks for reading, hopefully Iv'e shown I've done my research and would appreciate the help.
  11. Hey guys, new on this forum so go easy. I'm planning on a new cycle of test e and tren ace, I've been studying tren for a while now and the general consensus seems to be run tren high and test low just to make sure the old sailor can stand up. 24 years old, 90kg roughly 13% bf. previous cycles of dianabol, test e, sust 250 and deca however this is my first time with tren. I am usually good with side effects, but what should I look out for? Cycle Tren a- 75mg eod (225mg/wk1, 300mg/wk2) repeat. Test e- (75mg tue-Friday) Critique on this please
  12. Entering my first cycle soon(after some planning and research), I have most of my cycle planned out and would like some opinions on it. Firstly the cycle week 1-4: d-bol 20mg Week 1-11: deca 300mg week 1-12: test e 300mg week 1-12: aromadex(based on what I feel I need) week 13-16: clomid (50,50,25,25) : nolvadex (40,40,20,20) I will be following a 2 a day training program that looks kinda like this: day 1: morning: chest,triceps,abs afternoon: legs,calves day 2: morning: back,biceps,calves afternoon: shoulders,abs day 3: off day 4: morning: legs, calves afternoon: chest, triceps, abs day 5: Monring: shoulders, abs afternoon: back, biceps, calves day 6: off day 7: off Diet will be on point as a have a dietitian in my family I know that I can increase the test e as most cycles I have seen the test e usage is more than the deca anyway. Could I increase my test e intake later during the cycle if I feel it is needed to counteract the deca? When working out twice a day would it be better to take dbol 10mg twice a day? or should I just smash 20mg in the morning? This is my first cycle so some criticism is to be expected. Your opinions?
  13. Hi guys Do u do a deloading week? How often and how do u do it? Thanks (Am not natural btw, so I am wondering if that could be helpful when on cycle)
  14. Hey guys, im new in this forum, i will introduce myself, im 21 years old, been lifting weights since i was 16-17 years old, i have done one winstrol only cycle for a contest when i was 18, then when i was 20, i made a mistake and done another cycle but with Test and Deca for 8 weeks. I train 4-5 days a week, eating every 3 hours. Age: 21 years Height: 175 cm Weight: 85 kg BF: 15% Im looking for a recomp cycle, where i can drop some bf and gain some muscle or at least maintain what i have, i have been thinking in using Tren but i think that Tren at my age is too much, i dont know what do you think. Tren and Test P for 6 weeks? My other idea was using Sustanon and Equipoise for 10-12 weeks with winstrol the last weeks, eating and training for my objective that i know that isnt easy to accomplish. Cheers
  15. Ok. So let me run this down. I'm 25yo male. 5'8. 153 pounds. I want a decent bulking cycle. Nothing crazy but looking up to 10-15 pounds of muscle and strength. What do you guys think? Week 1-10: 500mg Test Enan or Cyp/ .5mg of arimadex every other day for gyno check (I am susceptible to gyno) Week 11-12: HCG amount? To help boost natural Test creation. Week 13-15: 50mg clomid every day sees good? Or needs some work?
  16. Hi everyone. I am currently torn between two cycle options with Sustanon. I have Pharm Grade Sustanon, 24 ampoules at 1 ml each (250mg/ml) I am deciding between two options: Sustanon for 12 weeks at 500mg per week vs 8 weeks at 750mg per week. Which option will be better if the goal is mass gain? It is my first cycle. Thanks
  17. Hi guys, first post and new to this site, I'm looking to start my first jabbing cycle, I have Tmt with 100mg tren 100mg masteron and 225mg test e per ml i also have more test e at 275 per ml + airmadex my intentions are to run it at 1ml of each per week stopping Tmt one week before test, then pcting on clomid. I'm 22 105kg 6ft my question is, is this enough? Should I add/ take away anything? thanks
  18. Hi everyone! I am now doing my 1st week of a test Propionate cycle, with currently planned weekly dosage of 550 mg. The aim of the cycle is to gain as much lean muscle mass/mass/weight as possible. I hav enough Prop for 12 weeks if I run it at 550mg. However, I am really worried about making the gains so am thinking of reducing the cycle length to 7-8 weeks while increasing the dosage of prop to 650-750 per week. Do you think it is better to have a higher dosage shorter cycle vs lower dosage like I planned originally and do the cycle for 12 weeks? this is my 2nd cycle after a long long break from AAS
  19. I am currently on a Test only cycle and am only at day 4 of my 12 week cycle. I was thinking about the following. Do you generally require more calories and protein to build lean mass/muscle when taking steroids/on cycle vs training naturally? Is the risk of fat gain less on cycle?
  20. Hi everyone! I have started a Test Prop only Bulking Cycle and was originally planning to do 150 mg EOD. If I am correct, this works out as 525 mg per week. Planning to run it 10 weeks. The goal is to gain as much mass as possible. Do you think 150 mg EOD is enough to see good gains? Or should I bump it to 600 mg per week? This is my second cycle after many years off
  21. Hey everyone, Just need some advice on a couple of things. I'm in week 2 of my cruise at 1ml sust every 10 days and .25mg adex every 5 days Was previously on 600mg test / 400mg tren each week for 12 weeks and .25mg adex mon / wed / fri Recently I've found a lump to the right side of one of my nipples. Its not directly underneath the nipple but to the right just outside the nipple. There's no itching or sensitivity but its a little painful to touch or squeeze. Is this potentially gyno or maybe an inflamed lymph node? The other issue which I don't know if it's related is joint pain especially in the knees and shoulders. Shoulder in particular is giving me grief. Could this be related to coming onto a cruise dosage? Any advice would be great.
  22. Hey guys as it says I started my first ever steroid cycle this week... the cycle I'm following is below. I was speaking with a guy today who has been abusing steroids for years and he's told me to throw tren and decca into the cycle aswell. Now I thought ide come here for some advice as this guy seems like a nutcase but he does look like he knows a thing or two about the gear. The only thing that worries me about decca is the 'decca dick' I have a very high maintenance mrs . ? Below I've attached two pictures one of me now and one of what I'm aiming my body towards looking like, I understand hitting the gym and steroids alone won't give me that body. So looking for any advice you can offer towards achieving my goals. Ive also attached the cycle I'm following the only addition to the cycle at the moment is that I'm taking novladex 20mg a day for the first 6 weeks. Would you guys recommend I add or change anything about this cycle I'm only 2 days in so am I on the right track to achieve what I'm looking for? thanks in advance.
  23. I'm considering taking a cycle of clenbuterol to cut down my body fat. I plan on taking a cycle of test and dianabol in the future but in the meantime, would it be a good idea to have a first cycle consisting only of clenbuterol? Would I need any PCT? Any advice would be appreciated
  24. Hi all, I am fairly new to cycling as I have done only one, however I have done extensive research throughout the years. Here is the cycle I have done last year: 12 weeks long week 1-12 400mg Test E (200mg twice a week) week 8-14 Var 50mg ed week 4-13 HCG 250 iu twice a week PCT: Week 14-20 Clomid day 1-2 / 6 ed (2+2+2 after meals) day 3-12 / 2 ed day 13-43 / 1 ed Age: 38 High: 1.93cm / 6’3’’ Weight: 98kg / 216 lbs Diet and training were both in place. Loved the pumps and strength. The Var addition to the end was great as it gave me that hard look and vascularity I was looking for. I have gained 3kg and lost 2kg. I wasn’t expecting massive gains nor massive losses. Overall, I know I haven't gained much but I am fairly happy with it as I have gained insights on how my body reacts to the gear. PCT ended mid-July 2016. I am now researching to put together my next cycle and I have come to a conclusion that short cycles will give me a god ratio between gains and sides. I know there is contradicting information out there, some people are more comfortable with an 8 weeks cycle, some others with 4. However, I like very much the Bill Roberts’ short cycles approach for the reasons mentioned above. I am 39 and I think I should give the right amount of consideration to the gains and even more to the possible sides. My stats now are as follows: Age: 39 High: 1.93cm / 6’3’’ Weight: 99kg / 218 lbs BFP: 10% (measure two days ago) I have done blood works; kidney and liver functions are fine, HDL and LDL are fine too except for HDL ratio, 4.15 which is above the max recommended, 4. I have modified my diet to tackle this issue and hopefully it will be fixed before I am starting. I am also positive about the fact that short cycles, due to the length, have limited impact on lipids. E2 and Testosterone are all within the recommended ranges. I will use this results as a baseline and plan to take another blood test at 11 days into the first two weeks cycle and use that as a reference for the following two weekers. The protocol I am following will be (2on, 2off, 2on, 2off, 2on, 4off). See attached image. I have added HCG to be on the safe side, as the cycle alternation might have a negative impact on the HPTA by the end of it. I have also added Aromasine for two reasons. First, because I will be using drugs which aromatise highly, being Test P and Dbol, so water retention will surely be an issue. I am also aiming to avoid the rebounce effect. Not so much bothered about gyno as I had to have my glands removed when I was a teenager. I think the dose will be sufficient to keep the E2 at the right levels but I will be able to see more based on future sides if any and blood test once I am on. For the PCT, I have opted for Clomid over Nolva as I have some left form the previous cycle and didn’t give me any side last time I used it. I am planning to repeat this cycle by three times with the option to add VAR to the seocnd and third 2 weekers. I would very much appreciate any feedback from the community in regards to the stacking, the doses and the two weekers cycles in general. Thanks for your help
  25. Hi fellas I am just opening a thread and I bet this is going to annoy someone lol. I would like to hear feedback from people that have been on steroids and have used the intermittent fasting. I know that most of the people don't like the idea of "fasting" 16 hrs or more and they prefer the classic approach of eating every 2-3 hrs. (even tho is called fasting, these 16 hrs are made from 8 hrs ish of the night sleep) The IF changes the food timing only therefore the difference will be doing 2-3 meals per day rather than 6-7 or 8. Macro, micro, calories are just spread in 2-3 meals. IF is the best approach in terms of nutrition I have experienced (as natty), it matches with my life, so I would like to try it in combination with AAS. (Test E-Dbol cycle) Few things I would like to say to justify why I like it are: - The body is not always "ready" to assimilate the nutrients (therefore giving continuously nutrients does not mean you are feeding your muscles) - there are only few moments when the body is in that condition where it can actually "use" the food as energies for all the internal processes - the fact that someone is using some Test E doesn't change the body's ability to utilise the food as energy source - Digestion can take more than 7 hrs. So why keep feeding the body every 2 hrs !? -also giving too much proteins to the body does not mean that the body will use them to build muscle as long as it can converts them into glucose and store it as fat finally I am not an expert in AAS, and I am talking in general for the natty user and "light bomber". My conclusion is that high doses of AAS and other drugs may change the way the body works , so if Pro's eat 10 times a day and are huge probably means that if you stay on gears all the time and you taking high doses of drugs then you can eat as you like. If you are on just 500mg of Testosterone then just pretend your are natural (technically testosterone is a natural hormone isn'it).
