only noticeable sides was some occasional lethargy which would occur between my workout sessions, after my big post workout meals. A nap would fix this. Some light acne breakouts on upper body with no noticeable facial breakouts. Found the occasional hair here and there but I have long hair and so it may be more prone to coming out. I never found more than 2 or 3 on my pillow the next morning so the shedding was definitely under control if it occurred at all.
I am obviously very pleased with this first cycle and my strength and size increases. I will begin PCT tomorrow with nolva and 7-oh and will cut back the volume in my training by 30-40%. I noticed little bloating from the 4-ad so if I can stay up over 220 through PCT I'll be satisfied.
I still have some of the 'pain-free orals' left and plan to run the 1-test cyp w/ clen/eca, and mohn for a cutter in a few months. After that it'll be time to gradute to the big boy supplements.
