I am posting this for anybody who is considering using tren in a first cycle as well as to see how my results stack up to anyone else who may have used tren for their first cycle.
I just finished my first cycle, a six weeker consisting of Tren Ace (Fina conversion) at 150mg EOD, Winny at 50mg ED, and Proviron. I realize that this is not a stack recommended for beginners, but frankly, I live out in the middle of BFE and pellets and online pharms were my only options and I was too paranoid to order injectables online and the Syno conversion looked fairly involved. Thankfully I am moving off this god-forsaken island and should be able to find a real source. My reasoning behind the stack was that Winny would help with any progesterone that might pop up, while the Proviron would keep the junk in working order.
I supplemented with milk thistle, cranberry juice, multi-vitamins, fish oil, and milled flax seed. My diet was fairly clean, consisting of 300g protein a day, and varying amounts of fat and carbs depending on wheater it was a work out day or not. Fat came largely from fish oil and flax, carbs from oatmeal, fruit and veggies, and cranberry juice.
I started at 6â€™3â€?, 247lbs. My original goal was to run a straight cutter, but I kind of gave up on that once the strength gains kicked in and bumped up the cals to a bit above maintainance. I ended up gaining 8 pounds while loosing an inch off my waist and getting a whole lot stronger.
I seem to be relatively immune to most of Trenâ€™s side effects, with a couple of exceptions. My libido has been small to non-existant since the end of week two, as was expected. I actually caught myself making an excuse not to have sex once, which was really strange! Anyway, the Proviron kept the yogurt slinger working per specs, but the girlfriend got kind of pissed about me not wanting to jump her bones all the time, which is never good.
The only other side I experienced was a bit of insomnia, which I have bouts of anyway. I had no trouble getting to sleep, but staying asleep for more than four hours at a time was a whole nother matter. It didnâ€™t happen every night, though, and when it did I was able to get in a night time protein shake and go back to sleep in a half hour or so. Honestly, Iâ€™ve had worse insomnia without tren.
I didnâ€™t have any problems with aggression, but I am fairly laid back most of the time anyhow. I didnâ€™t have night sweats, tren cough or any of the other sides reported frequently with tren, but I did start to have some joint pain from the Winny the last week of the cycle.
The good: I got over my fear of needles really fast, and, oh yeah, did I mention I gained 8 pounds and lost body fat?
The bad: EOD injections suck ass. I messed up two shots during the cycle, and got bruises the size of a quarter. Not the best thing when trying to keep your juicing on the down low. Libido went into hibernation.
What have I learned from this experience? Use test with tren. The whole libido thing is kind of disconcerting. Also, joint pain really blows. I will probabally never run Winny for longer than 4 wks in the future.
Will I juice again? You bet your ass! Being able to stack more weight on the bar every single time you step in the gym is pretty sweet, especially while losing bf at the same time. ****, I have already started planning my next cycle. Assuming my blood work comes back in good shape after PCT, I hope to be able to squeeze out another six week cycle before I graduate (from college, before I get flamed) in June. The question now is: cut until I can clearly see abs, or bulk and try to hit 275 lbs?
Anyway, if you are thinking about tren for a first cycle, do your research, use a short ester in case things go bad, and use test, seriously.
