I am going to start my second cycle at the end of July, but I wanted to put it together now. My first cycle was Test E at 500mg/week for 1 weeks. I gained 12 pounds, leaned out quite a bit, and kept it all with some gains in PCT.
This cycle will be after a bodybuilding show. I am going to do another one in December or January so I want this cycle to be very lean gains so I do not have to diet long. This is not a pre contest cycle though.
With that said, I was thinking Test/Deca, but I'm worried about the bloat that comes with Deca. I've read that some people get it while others don't. But would the water weight go away at the end and I keep the lean mass I put on? I was also thinking Test/Masteron, but have read this is better for pre contest, I still want to put on size since this is not a cutting cycle. Then I was considering Test/EQ. I think this is my best bet for my goals. I was also thinking Test/Tren, but I think I should get some more cycles under my belt until I touch Tren.
My current stats are 5'9 at ~180. I figured after my show, I will be around 165-170. I am open to all suggestions, not just what I posted.
