This is my first post here, and I'm looking for some advice and comments on my first PH cycle. First off, I'm 31 years old and roughly 225 lbs with 15-18% body fat. I have been lifting off and on for 4-5 years. My bench is around 315 and I put on size pretty quickly if I up my calories, but it's usually wet with little to definition. Cutting cycles work OK, but I end up losing more muscle than fat. I've been doing a ton of research the past few weeks and I think I'm ready for my first cycle and I've read EPI (or HAVOC) is good for a first run. I'm also interested in running 11-OXO (LGI 11-X) to help maximize my fat loss. Below is what I was thinking. Let me know if I'm off anywhere with products or dosages.
Pre-Cycle (1 week):
CEL Cycle Assist: 8 caps a day
Cycle (6 weeks):
EPI - 30/30/40/40/40/40
11-OXO - 600/600/600/900/900/900
CEL Cycle Assist : 8 caps daily
Mega Men Multi-Vitamin
Met-RX Super Joint Guard - 4 caps daily
Super Cissus - 6 caps daily
Fish Oils / CLA - 3 caps daily (1200mg each)
PCT (4 weeks):Nolva - 20/20/10/10
CEL PCT Assist - 4 caps daily
(Plus MV/fish oil/joint assist)
Couple things. Should I be bridging 11-OXO or will stacking it be best? I'm a little concerned with joints as I'm already experiencing some tightness on my forearms and elbows on my current workout regimen. Is nolva best for PCT? Or will clomid be sufficient (I have a bunch so I wouldn't have to order from those sketchy pharms)? And finally, when is the best time to take the EPI/11-X if I hit the gym around 7pm at night? Is a light pre-workout supplement OK to take? I'm usually exhausted at the end of the day so I might need a little boost.
Thanks again for any advice and help. I think I have all the right products, but wanted to make sure..I really appreciate it and can't wait to start this cycle!
