First Cycle 500mg Test E 10wk

First Cycle 500mg Test E 10wk
First ever cycle started last thursday (10-13). Took me about 45 minutes of holding the needle 1 inch from my glute before I finally put it in, 2nd shot only 3 minutes
Never used PH's.
Height 5-9.5, Weight 180 upon waking
I use DC Training. I was weighing about 185, benching 235 (for 10) and squatting 295 (for 6) and 215 (for 20) for my DC sets, then got on melting point, lost about 12 pounds, and alot of strength and muscle. The cramps made my workouts so bad I really suffered.
Wk 1-10 Test E 500mg (250mg Mon A.M./Thurs P.M.)
Wk 1-11 Letro AS NEEDED! Will use .25mg EOD if need arises.
Wk 4-12 HCG 500ius (250 2x week, still debating inj schedule)
Wk 13-17 Nolvadex 40/30/20/20 (will adjust for weight of citrate to accomodate for this dosing scheme)
I also happen to have plenty of anavar that I might throw in. Thoughts on this?
I don't plan to be a psycho updater, but I will do my best to provide key numbers from each of my workouts to track progress, and of course my weight.
Diet I try to keep pretty clean..foods I usually am eating: Chicken, beef, pork, OATS!, sweet potatoes, lentils, beans, broccoli, green beans, peas, apples, grapes
I use CEE+ON 100% whey also. I am considering getting Hawthorne berry (Heart/blood pressure) and maybe Vitamin B6 (for acne prevention, thoughts?)

Definitely get some hawthorn. what other protective supps are you taking?
10-21-2005 12:11 AM
I take fish oil and vitamins, no other supplements. I don't think I really need many protective supplements with this cycle.
Delt shot today, #3, went well. It takes quite a bit of pressure with a 25g to get the oil flowing.

Key lifts: Decline Bench weight used=235
Behind the neck smith mil press weight used=165
Hammer High Row weight used=270
Started Anavar today, 20mg preworkout, will dose again tonight. Gonna be using 40mg/day for a few weeks until the test hits, the will use it to bridge to PCT possibly.

I actually have Exemestane (aromasin) instead of Letro.. Anyone have experience using it? I know the clinical dose is 25mg ED.. I'm thinking 12.5mg EOD if I run into trouble.. Thoughts?

I wouldn't run Enan for only 10. If you're running enan, go for 12 min, I'd recommend 14.
IF you want to do a short cycle, dummy up and pin the prop. No point in getting 4 weeks of growth out of a 10 week enan cycle.
At your size, 500mg will be a great dose....best of luck! IF you start to plateau, don't be afraid to up the dose. Dont' worry about some of the other guys say.
10-23-2005 05:02 PM
Ah thanks for the advice, the way it's coninciding w/ Christmas and New Years I might just run it an extra 2 weeks to bring it to 12. I will definitely stay flexible.
BTW, I followed your log and CEDeo's, got a lot of good information from it.

Glad it helped But, honestly, all that matters is seeing what works for you.

Weight upon waking: 183
alt DB curl: 45s
also did forearm work, seated hamstring curl, and seated calf raise.
Considering bumping my training to 4 days instead of 3 in a few weeks once I feel it kick in to take advantage of the fast recovery. Right now I do Upper/Lower/Upper...Lower/Upper/Lower...Repeat. If I changed it, my training would simply be upper/lower/upper/lower
nips are more erect, kinda freaked me out.. took some nolva, I know I'm just being paranoid, especially since I'm only 1.5 weeks in. I will start using Aromasin at a modest 12.5mg EOD/E3D.
Shot 4, right delt, went very well, didn't move the needle much at all and only took about 20 seconds of staring to finally get the courage to inject.

Weight upon waking: 188 (+8)
Weights used last night
Flat Bench: 225
DB Shoulder Press: 60's
WG Pull Ups: BW
Didn't get a chance to do rack deads because gym was closing, I will do them today.
188 pounds was pretty shocking, I guess this stuff works fast.
Shot 5 last night, right glute, piece of cake.

Rack Deads: 315x8, 365x6, weight could have been quite a bit higher on these, but since I'm squatting tommorow, I took it semi-easy.
kwycke, I hit 225x9 then moved to a machine press to finish off the last 2 mini sets(no spotter after first set) I will attempt 235 next time most likely.
60 DBx9, 4, 3, Probably moving to 65's next time.
WG Pullups BWx6, then moved to Pulldowns @ 170 lbs for 6,4 I usually knock pullups out like a champ, but I guess the extra weight slowed me a bit, so I moved to pulldowns at a lighter weight than I would normally use to get more reps in since my first set was so crappy.
I also did tricep pushdowns (hands shoulder width apart) @ 110x6,(got like 1 on the second set-attempt so lowered the weight) 100x5,3
I used to follow DC program to the T over the summer, but without a consistent spotter now(just asking people in the gym, no w/o partner) I had to modify it a bit.
HCG administration will begin monday.

Last night's workout:
Squat: 285x7, 205x20
Lying Ham Curl 155x9,3,2
Donkey Calf Raise Machine 500, started burning so bad I lost count but over 10
Straight BB Curl 90 (marked as 90 but these are the preloaded BB's I think they are off by 5-10 pounds, so probably closer to 95) 8,2,1
Hammers: 40x13,7,5 (need to work on stricter form)

For me personally, Test E takes 5-6 weeks to fully exert it's fabulous effects. Next time maybe do yourself a favor (I'm impatient) and run a little snappy quickstart with Prop for the first 4-5 weeks, or Dbol, O.T, or even your Var. Consider using Var for 2-3 weeks after your last dose of Test E (Even overlap it 2 weeks before last shot, 2 weeks after)
Just my 2 pence and a bag of delicious walnuts.
Your real jumps in strength and weight are to come bro..
Good luck and practice sterile injection techniques.

Ive been seriously thinking of starting to pin instead of OTC orals and if I do Im going to be running something very similar to this. Im really looking forward to hearing your experience with this cycle.
I was thinking of Test E at 500mg/week with some Dbol or SD for the first 3-4 weeks to kick start it. I was thinking of going for about 12 weeks and using some kind of AI and HCG while on cycle. I noticed you are starting HCG administration about 2 weeks after your first Test injection, is this the standard time frame to start HCG? Do you have an opinion on which AI to use while on cycle.
Im just looking for any advice or tid bits of info that will make for an easier cycle. Looking forward to seeing your experiences with this.

bry I started var last week and will run it through week 4 probably, I will also close out the cycle with it.
Sky9, Standard HCG protocol? probably. I'm noticing some decrease in size that I'd like to remedy. This will be 2.5 weeks after my first injection (Monday).
As for AI's I'm using aromasin, I got that instead of letro by accident, but I was pleased since I believe it is easier on cholesterol levels and lacks the "rebound effect" found with letro and adex. Not sure about this though, but it is a steroidal AI like ATD.

Weight upon waking: 190.5
Straight bar preacher curl: 80x6,3,2 (wasn't feeling it, dunno)
Hack Squat: 430x6, 340x20
also did calves and reverse ez bar curls.
Did one shot of hcg Mon night, then when I went to do my second the vial fell out of where I was keeping it in the fridge and broke, so I won't be starting HCG again for a few more weeks so I don't run out before PCT begins. (I have 2 more 2000iu amps).
I'm surprised my weight isn't up more, but I think I'll be at a solid 192 by monday. I've spoiled myself after shooting up 10 pounds in 2 weeks.
No really noticiable jumps in strength yet.
After being on anavar for 2 weeks @ 40mg (I'm 90% sure it's legitimate) I'm not that pleased, so I'm bumping the dose to 60mg as of today, I will continue this for another week or two while the test kicks in.
Does anyone have any thoughts on eating lots of pasta for extra calories? I saw that a box has 1600 calories in it, and I can easily go through half a box in a sitting. It's low GI I believe, so I'm thinking it isn't that bad? If someone can tell me otherwise though I'll just switch to cramming sweet potatoes down my throat.

Decline Bench: 245x9 (then finished on a machine)
BTN Smith press: 165x10,4,2
Hammer High Row: 3plates+10 per sidex9,3,2
Bent Row: 185x12,5,3
11-06-2005 12:10 PM
make sure it's whole wheat pasta

Dropped the anavar, I am beginning to notice the testosterone more and more, so I will use that solo from here until I prepare for pct, then I will use var to bridge to it.
Last week I squatted 265x15 and DB Curl 50x6,2,2 (really the only important lifts, also did seated ham curls, calf stuff, and some forearm work)
Flat BB Bench: 245x9,2,1
DB Shoulder Press: 65'sx10,4,2
Cable Pushdown: 110x7,3,2
Pullups: BWx6,2,2 (got crappy toward the end)
Rack Deads: 335x7, 385x4
I don't really feel bloated as I'm using a mild dose of Aromasin, but I think I'm holding water around my trunk.. dunno.
Gonna try and eat even better, although I've been pretty clean, perhaps that will remedy it.
