    2nd cycle advice needed :)


    hey everyone,

    This is my first post on the forums and i just have a couple quick questions
    Reason why i am posting is my friend who usually supplies everyone with prohormones in the area is kinda weird and i wanted to make sure i don;t just follow his advice without knowing what im getting myself into.

    I'm 22 255lbs and finished my first cycle about 12-15 weeks ago. He put me on empower which gave me huge gains but i didnt eat right so i did gain fat also. Now my goal is to try and cut down. Empower apparently after reading online is a terrible supplement havign Hdrol,SD, and Maxlmg all together. I did it with 4 friends and 2 of them actually had really bad side effects and couldnt take it past 3 weeks. I finished it only got cramps.

    Usually he just has the stacks that are made by companies and we usually opt to get those because we dont have much experience with making our own stacks. And im not sure i really wanna trust him because he isnt the brightest fella.

    This next compound he's putting me on is called slice (epistane and prostanazol) each pill has has 20mg epi and 100mg prost. And i belive ill take it 3 times a day.
    1) Does that sound bad or too much?
    2) I hear that everyone takes prostanazol and feels it at around 450mg per day. Should i invest in more prostanazol?
    3) He mentioned i can stack winastrol/winadrol not sure which one he said or not sure if they are the same thing. But he said i can stack it with the other 2 and get even better results with still low side effects.


    My goal is to get to 220lbs with low bodyfat. I bench 265x4reps,squat 600x4reps, deadlift 525x4reps. I have a huge ass and thighs and hopefully by doing this i can trim a lot of the fat on my butt(where i gain all my weight) mainly doing this to get faster and shave off some time from my 40.

    thank you

    I'm sure someone will come along soon that knows a lot more than me but I'll throw in my 2 cents. I don't know much about pro but know epi is a good lean gainer. Although 60 of epi is probably on the high side. That's the one issue with products that are already stacked, u might end up with too much of one compound and not enough of another. Think most guys are running 30-50 on epi. Although ur a big dude at 250 plus so 60 might not be too bad but I would probably start lower with that. I plan on running an epi cycle of 6 weeks at 30/30/40/40/50/50.

    3 a day would be perfect. Ive run those doses with epistrong and pstanz. Very fun cycle. Crazy vascularity and cuts. They are both hard on the joints so be aware of that.

    Yes, not bad on the dosages, but your joints will not like you...

    First cycle PCT i took the stuff my friend gave me I can list the products real quick.

    I took ZMA, tribitulus, reversitol v2, and a test booster.

    if you need more info then ask but thats what i know i took.


    So i should look into maybe investing into some pstanz on its own. maybe start the first 2 weeks at 300 if i feel good thats fine if not i can up to 450 a day?
    Secondly what about adding the winadrol into the mix. Should i stay away from it or no?

    You need to learn what a proper pct looks like before you think of going on another cycle.

    I am ashamed at your ability to read. Read that thread again and come back with what you find.

    man i swear i read it twice heres hoping i get it 3rd time around.

    Ok i just read it again.. Along with everything im taking the most important thing is taking an SERM
    I know what it does but i have some questions.
    1) i finished my cycle of HD,SD,and max lmg and havent lost anything for 12 weeks hard working every night eating right. And i didnt take a SERm. I took test boosters and estrogen blockers and strength gainers? Was i lucky? Am i missing something internally that the SERM would have helped with?


    I just read up that nolvadex can have some severe side effects such as liver enzyme shifts and for that clomid is preferred over it even though side effects such as vision impairment can also come into it. is that true.

    The way i see it is i followed my friends advice and ended up getting a really bad cycle too harsh but survived it kept the gains and didnt take a SERM. Maybe that sounds stupid but im scared at some of these SERM sideeffects. are these sides just very low chance or usual for most users

    You are one of the following:
    1) Very very very lucky.
    2) Used bunk stuff and had incredible placebo gains. You said you only got pumps as sides, no nut shrinkage/aching? acne? anything?

    If I were you I'd get bloodwork done (there is a sticky in the forum on how to get it cheap and without your normal doctor), just to make sure you are ok at this point.

    SERM's are a staple of modern pct. They restore your natural test production and prevent gyno. You should take a SERM during pct. Tribulus and an anti-estro are not nearly enough after a heavy cycle. Unfortunately you did not get bloods done before cycle, but if you did and then used an otc pct nine times out of ten your test production will be noticeably hampered.

    WEll thanks to both of you.

    Yea i mean two guys i took the cycle with it couldnt handle it. I got some bumps on my back but nothing sever i normally have a great skin care regimen. I also had really abd back pumps and cramps in the weirdest places. Even when i yawned my chest would cramp. Just cramps no pain.

    So if i understand this right along with test booster muscle gainers, estrogen blockers i def need to get a SERM.
    I just read that most of them are illegal. Is that true or are there legal compounds still being made.

    for a epi/pstanz cycle which one would be better nolvadex or clomid?

    And i have been needing to do bloodwork for a while. med school student so i get it for free =]

    also looking to get a cortisol controler

    they aren't illegal, they are grey-area research chemicals, mattrag has a post in that thread (page 1) that will help you find a reputable source (there is no sourcing on this board).

    Along with that gonna get Serms and AI

    For the Serms i could do what i read in manbeasts article
    Run the Torem and Clom

    or I could just run the Torem at 120mg/day for first week and after that 60mg/day till i finish bottle ~4 weeks

    as far as AI i keep reading about ERASE? ANd i also read that some people take it during the cycle low doses and some people just take it after the cycle. Any advice on running this?

    Clomid or torem would both work you dont need both. Erase normally can be used during pct starting the second week going 0/3/3/2/1.

    Erase normally can be used during pct starting the second week going 0/3/3/2/1

    I dont understand the lingo of 0/3/3/2/1
    does that mean 0 first week and then 3 a day for second week and so forth..

    I also read a post where people said that torem didnt work for them.. Is that just a bad batch or could it happen. If so should i just get clomid
