Red Dragon Labs
W 1-6: 100mg Prop + 75mg Trenbolone Acetate EOD
W 7-10: Custom Nolvadex 40/30/20/20
Nothing Drastic. This is planned as a short strength and minor recomposition cycle for summer. I hope to keep any muscle tissue built. This has yet to be a problem for me.
Lean Body Mass: 5lbs give or take
Thermogenesis: I'll be happy with any fat loss achieved. First time using Tren.
I haven't had a good experience keeping strength gains over the last year on my pushing work. It seems like sometimes overnight, I lose a lot of what I have worked very hard for due perhaps to lack of CNS stimulation. I keep muscle fairly easily on the otherhand on account of my high eating capacity.
Therefore I am going to work very hard on pulling work. Particularly I am in good shape to work Deadlifts, Chins/Pullups, Curls and most any other pulling work you can think of. Grip work will be included as well. Pushing work will be done in higher rep ranges with a focus on hypertrophy. As usual I will adjust what and how I train for strength to accomodate what I am taking. I expect surprises and avoidance of injury is and will continue to be my main priority.
I will be doing cardio. Mainly the elliptical trainer and swimming. Additionally, I will log some hours doing lawn care as that is my primary business right now, other than being a student full time.
Bodyweight: 247 bloated

Past Cycle History
You can find most of it in the cycle info section at Anabolicminds. My AAS cycle is logged at ironmagazineforums journal section.
3 Short PH/PS cycles
1 Long Ester AAS cycle (Test E based)
For Control of Gyno
Bromocriptine (2.5-5mg ED)
B6 (600mg ED)
Arimidex (.25 mg ED at most)
Nolvadex (10mg ED)
I am also planning a couple of other measures to try and keep gyno at bay. My diet is going to be a eucaloric cutter more or less and I tend to notice fewer problems with gyno when I try a Protein Strictly Mother ****er type diet. I need a hypocaloric diet if I expect much fat loss anyhow.
Also, I may need to completely drop the Prop from my arsenal or greatly reduce the dose. I shed hair very badly on Testosterone, and I am very gyno prone. If my hair stack proves ineffectual, I may just rid myself of the problem by switching to a Tren only cycle for awhile, libido be damned.
I don't plan to use the following unless I have to. My best weapon so far has been simply getting rid of any testosterone used and also limiting use of AI's/anti-E's. I have used most of these in the past and they seemed fairly ineffectual at the time.
For the sake of brevity, these are the only supplements I am listing. I don't have plans to use very many supps at all unless I really need to. The gyno prevention, I see as a must however.
I am going to keep to 2g/lb protein when I feel I can. I do however still have two protein induced heart arrhythmias that flare up much too often. They seem to be at their worst when I combine a lot of protein with really high calories. I will not be using whey protein at all as it directly causes me to have a sleeping arrhythmia right before bed each night. I don't have a problem with taking Ephedrine, Caffeine, Nicotine or any other similar stimulants, although I don't plan to use many of these during this cycle. Main protein sources will be Tuna, Casein, Egg Protein and Leanish Beef. That will have to do. Honestly calories will be a big problem. I am going to try to keep them as low as I can by sticking mainly to protein. But I make no major guarantees when the test kicks in. Sometimes I go a little nuts. That is another reason, I may go tren only part of the time or greatly reduce the test. In that instance I might slightly increase how much Tren I am using. Once again, I am aware of what this may do to my libido, but it may also be the only way to keep gyno down, hair loss down, calories low etc.
Soon, definitely. I already have everything I need onhand. I have not yet done equal time on, equal time off. I took my last shot in early March. I have been off of everything but my multivitamin and fish oil for the past month plus. I am going to take a few days off of lifting right now before firing it up. I will be eating a mild hypocaloric diet during this time and doing cardio.
Updates will be made daily or whenever I hit the gym. I'll try to include as much detail as I can.
Any and all comments are welcome and encouraged. I am sure I have left some things out regarding my plan and I will be glad to clarify if needed.
