    First Test Cutting Cycle help


    Hey guys,
    I've run 2 ph cycles in the past, but I've become really interested in running my first test e cycle in the spring. I'm planning it out, and I'm hoping you can fill in some of the blanks for me. Here's what I'm looking at...

    Weeks 1-8

    Test E- 600mg per week (2 300mg pins per week)
    Adex- .5mg EOD


    Weeks 9-12
    Test E- 600mg per week (2 300mg pins per week)
    Adex- .5mg EOD
    Winny: 50mg EOD

    weeks 13-14

    nothing

    Weeks 15-18 (pct)

    Nolva- 40/40/20/20

    HCG- 500IU twice per week (1000 IU per week)



    So... hows this look overall? I've never taken any of these supps before (except Nolva), so I'm not positive about the dosages. Should I include some HCG during cycle to prevent testicular atrophy?

    your dosages look ok, the hcg you would want to include during the cycle 500iu per week 250iu 2x week you can start it at week 3 by then the test will start kicking and shutting you down, some guys may say start at week 1, you can stop hcg at week 12 when you stop test. im not the hcg guru jus my 2 cents im still learning my self brotha

    Oh okay. Thank you. I would think people would run hcg during those 2 weeks you stop test, to get your boys going strong, and possibly continue it through pct. sounds like a lot of hcg to me tho.

    I've also heard of people "pulsing" hcg throughout the cycle, to get the boys going again, without building a tolerance to the hcg. at least thats the way I understand it. Seems more cost effective that way. Maybe some other people can share their opinions...

    your running your test way too high... there's absolutely no need for that... 350-500 is plenty... you should run winstrol 6 weeks... make sure to run a cycle assist alongside of it... start hcg week 7-12 at 500 ius week then blast it week 13-14 at 1000 ius week...

    What's the idea behind blasting hcg? (Never read that, anywhere) And also I've read that 500+mgs of test is where it's at. Jw

    its where its at if you want to get more shutdown and get the possibility of more sides... you can get amazing gains on 350-500 mg of test... blasting hcg makes the transition and recovery into pct MUCH EASIER...

    Winny 6 weeks at 50mg min.
    Test not too high, a bit on the high end but depending on the lab could be underdosed.

    Blasting hcg is normally around 1000iu last week to get your testes hopefully back to full blown balls.
    Just note that your last hcg inject should be 3-4 days before starting pct because it will still mess with your natural hormone output.

    Okay thanks guys. And keep in mind this is for a cut. So is it possible to get super cut and build a little muscle at the same time? I would love that

    Not knocking the OP, I'm just curious.

    If the goal is a cut, why would test be run that high?

    Everyone reacts differently, but test is a wet compound, and at that dosage, it doesn't seem the best choice for a cut?

    Plus the winstrol seems underdosed, IMO

    When I think cut cycle, I think low dose test, high dose tren or masteron, plus winstrol.

    Honestly, I don't know what dosage to use. Thats why i posted here before I started doing it all wrong. haha. I just googled it and saw some other posts where people were using similar ones. I just want to take enough to keep all my muscle from my bulk. I'd really like to do tren, but people say to do at least one test cycle before adding tren so you know which steroid is giving you side effects. So you would recommend about 300mg test per week? I'm planning to start cutting on April 11th, and cutting for 12 weeks to July 4th (then showing off my ripped body!).

    This is the blurry as hell version but I will get a better version. This is part of a study that says more test injected lowering of fat mass, and an increasing of fat free mass. Now if you are talking oh this amount of test will make me look more bloated be my guest but saying you cant cut on more gear is silly.

    i can't seem to see where i ever said you can't cut on that amount of test... its just NOT NECESSARY... it makes it more difficult... its not impossible and those words NEVER came from me... it just not optimal...

    If you're getting super bloated on test no matter what ester while you're cutting you're doing it wrong. There's plenty of ways to keep the water retention low.

    I am guessing our definitions crossed somewhere my idea of a cut the only thing of any concern is bf not weight.

    yes there are plenty of ways to keep bloat low to non existant but some people just struggle with estro conversion and i have seen people not respond well to ai's either... you can get huge gains on test between 350-500... its not necessary to be dosing 600-750 mg of test... do what you will... its just not necessary...

    Well what do you guys think about test cyp at 400mg per week? I've heard it can cause bloating issues.
    And if you've never used test before... is there any way to know if its really test in the vial? Is there a smell or taste or anything? Noob questions I know

    Bloating, fat gain, cutting or bulking is all going to depend on your diet and how well you know your body. It's not gonna matter if your on Prop, E or C. I know guys who cut just as well on E as they do on prop. A shorter ester isnt going to make cutting any easier or harder. You may bloat a little more on E or C but that's pretty easily combatted. Fluctuating blood levels (mostly E2) are also going dictate your bloat and you can fluctuate just as easily on prop as you can E or C.

    Test E 500 a week for 12 weeks with adex if your worried about estrogen sides an Nolva 20/20/20/20 is a perfectly fine cycle to cut with. Good luck whatever you choose.

    Cool. thanks a lot. My source is out of test E, so I'm going with cyp for 12 weeks. And I'm plannig to take aromasin at 12.5mg EOD, think that's good. I know aromasin is strong, so I don't wanna kill my libido or anything. And should I take it through pct?

    Aeromasin only has a 24 hour active life and actually is shorter In males. So it needs to be dosed ED not EOD and no don't take it during pct.

    how much did you gain on it? your profile shows you as 6'3" and 177lbs. Basically if you get 250mg/ml testosterone which is what a majority of UGLs do, 300 is a pain to get to. but 1 1/2 ml ends up at 475, which is plenty. if you are splitting it in 2x a week, then you can instead shoot for 6/10 an ml each time and end up closer to 400. Its way better to start slow. Whether you can add muscle while losing fat is far more overall diet dependent. And if you are buying the winny anyhow, then i'd also add in 3 days of 50mg a day at week 5. Winny lowers SHBG, leaving you more free testosterone and that's about the point where your SHBG is likely to start going up

    Well I'm at 187 now. My source has test cyp at 200mg/ml. I was planning 2 mls per week. So you would suggest 8 weeks of winny? I was planning 6, but as long as it won't destroy my liver I'm good.

    nope, just 3 days in a row there at week 4 or 5 or 2 weeks before you plan to start taking it daily. actually the dose could be quite low those 3 days, as low as 10mg will do the trick. you are talking oral winny right?
