So I decidedto step into the dark side and do my first cycle. I have been researching and reading thecforums for about a year. Well since itís my first cycle, Iím going to be taking Test Cypionate. Iím starting this cycle next month because Iím still waiting to get my support supps(liver support, Fish oil, vitamins, ect) and have my PCT on hand. Now with whatI have read, it seems that mostly everyone runs a 12 week cycle. Is this true also for a newbie like myselfwho is doing his first cycle? Should I bump it down to 8? Or is that not a goodidea since it will not start kicking in until about week 3? Also, I forgot tomention that Iím going to get blood work done before I start this. Just waitingto see if the VA will cover it. If not,Iíll take my ass to LabCorp. I also planto log everything down here. Iíve neverdone that before but from the logs that I have read the info basically consistsof workouts, diet, moods, side-effects (Am I missing anything?).
I have some questionsthat Iím still confused about. Dosage. Iíveread about people taking anywhere from 300mg to 600mg per week. Since this is my first cycle, what is therecommended dosage for a newbie? Pre-workout Supp. Iíve read that some people take a pre-workoutsupp while on cycle and some donít. Is this necessary or should the Test beenough to get me through my workouts? Arimidex. Is it recommended to take thison cycle to keep estrogen levels on check?

Diet:Stocking up on eggs, chicken breast, tuna and tilapia for protein along withSyntha-6 for my whey protein and either casein or cottage cheese for my latenight snack. For carbs, Iím sticking with brown rice and sweet potatoes and mygreens will be frozen mixed veggies. Iímlooking to get 6-7 meals a day with my first one starting at 5:30 am (pre-workoutshake).
Pct:Nolvadex, AI, Cortisol Control but Iím not sure about the dosage. Read of people taking Nolva at 20/20/20/20but I would not know since I have never done a cycle. If you guys see any flawshere please enlighten me with some wisdom because I would like to keep most ofmy gain.
