    1st cycle of test log. (advice?)


    im geting ready to start a 15 week cycle of test (first pin is today). my pct will consist of nolva and clomid. this is my first cycle. i am 165 and about 5'8 (very ectomorph) my diet is prety clean and i usually eat 4 to 6 meals a day at about 1000 calories a meal. the only other supplements i am takeing are a monohydrate, waximaze, and whey and cassien protien. i will be documenting my cycle in this forum. if anyone has any advice, feel free, i love to learn.

    its ethinate test . im doing 500 mg (2cc a week). and a trusted source recomended a 15 week cycle, and that seems to be a prety common cycle length for this cycle.

    10-12 weeks is enough for a first cycle. 15 weeks is stretching it without HCG.

    if you have three vials you should count on losing some in the pinning process i Imagen you will only get 13 to 14 out of those three vials not the 15 week. mod edit: read the rules.

    Ya an AI during is probably a good idea if I ever do test again because I had some major water retention (though some was my bulking "diet") and it makes it obvious what is going on. Formadrol of some type or aromasin are good and should keep estrogen in check.

    i just ended an enanthate cycle of 20 weeks (similar starting stats, except i was 180)... by week 15 i was topped out on the weight gain, so it was pointless past that really. so in my individual case i did gain weight past 12 weeks. i dont think length of cycle really matters for a beginner as much as to what youre actually using. technically u could go till u stop gaining weight... i mean i was just as shutdown in week 12 as i was in week 20 put it that way

    Did you use hCG? Thats the only way I would go that long? The longer you are shut down the longer you will take to come back to allostasis or normality though it is dependent on the person.

    so you are pinning 2ml once a week? you know it would feel better overall if you split it into 2 injections and did them saturday and wed instead. As it stands you basically have days of the week where you have as much as 100mg of effective testosterone in you, and days where it is as low as 43mg. if you do it 2x a week, the range would be from 54-78mg from lowest to highest.

    wouldnt one shot a week be more of a "cruising" thing and not a cycling thing?

    it would be more of a sucking thing, as the day of (or after, I forget how long it takes to peak) the shot your levels are more than 2x as high as the day before. So sure you stay at supraphysiological levels the whole time, but you go from feeling like thor to just feeling like a high test 18 year old. The bigger swings can cause moodiness, depression, etc.

    Even for TRT docs who prescribe a 1 time a week protocol, they are generally prescribing 1-2 days of HCG as well partway thru the week which will cause your body to create its own test, shoring up the levels. you can get to supraphysiological levels of test FOR A WHILE on HCG only, but it will downregulate after a while

    on a real blast + cruise kind of thing you'd still do 2x a week, but during blast time the levels would be quite high, and during cruise likely 200mg-300mg a week, maybe more for the enormous monsters out there
