    Do I really need an estrogen control?. The one I had for cycle support increases natural test too... So itsnot what I need I want a real estrogen blocker to avoid the increase of it during cycle...and I cannot find one that only blocks it..

    600/800/1000/1000/1000/1000 is what I will be dosing stano. I wouldn't bother going lower than 600.

    Well... what about toxicity? And if I reach now 1000 I would have to go beyond that in my next cycle I would rather keep it for a couple of days at 450 then 600 keep it like that for two weeks and then go 800.But I don't know about stano a lot so If you can explain your opinion I would be really greatfull.If not I guess I have to research even more.

    I will be running stano at 800 the whole 6 weeks with my epistane. Stano won't be as toxic as it is not methylated.

    You just gotta see what works for you bud. 800 felt fantastic for me and I likely won't ever cycle without stano

    Yeah but some people don't always have reliable sources hence the designer steroid approach

    The toxicity is pretty much non existent, thsts the reason people use it stacked with methylated ph's and no you really wouldn't have to keep going up and up every cycle in the future. Its just my OPINION but you'd be wasting the stano under 600 mg. Stano is not a prohormone. Do a lot more research on it and other compounds that convert to dht. Youll be happy you did.

    If I only have enough pills of stano to run 1000 for two weeks (the rest of the cycle will be 800) which two weeks would be best to choose?

    edit: sorry for jacking

    I don't think you need an estrogen blocker when on epi as it can't be aromatized into estrogen. That's why companies claim it has anti estrogen properties. When I ran havoc I only used organ shield and cycle support. For pct I did nolva 20/20/10/10 and ran and AI (I used formestane) in reverse order, so ramping up the dose. I also took lean xtream starting on the second week. I kept getting gains throughout pct and thought it was an excellent cycle. Ending up weighing 165 and benching 330 because I was doing strict powerlifting training.

    My first cycle was Epi for 4 weeks 30/40/40/40

    Used OTC pct
    Kept most gains
    Great pumps, small strength increase (on core lifts mostly)
    Recovered quickly from workouts and my favorite part was the increased well being feeling

    Also was able to add extra sets to my working sets
    ie. if I did 4x8 before and was struggling, on epi I felt like my recovery was increased between sets and could add another working set

    Thinking ima do epi/stano/tren this summer (link in signature)... I know u already subbed in cooky1

    Good advice on "reverse" order

    Tapering up the AI while tapering down the SERM
    ...
    Gonna do the same for my cycle but won't start the AI right away, want to keep some estro around so the body starts upping its endogenous production right???

    Yea I hardly ever see people talking about tapering up the AI while reducing the SERM. I started my AI right with the SERM because I am already susceptible to estro sides and I just wanted zero chances of a rebound or anything. I was really happy with my cycle, but from your avatar it looks like you have nothing to worry about when talking about estro sides. I'm sure you can wait on your AI a week or so into the SERM and be safe.

    I used lean xtream as directed in pct and it seemed to work pretty well for me. It's a fat burner that works by blocking cortisol.

    Do you think my PCT is legit:
    IronMagLabs E-control-Rx
    Nolvadex dosage:, 20/20/20/10/10
    Anabolic designs liver milk
    SRS Reduce - XT after second week

    I think I'm gonna delete IML e-control and and add instead DS Triazole because I found its a solid AI

    DS Triazole dosage - / - /3 /4. /4. /4 /3
    Nolvadex dosage:, 20/20/20/10/10/10
    Anabolic designs liver milk
    SRS Reduce - XT after second week

    still dont think you need nolva that long... its high affinity for receptors has it working quickly.. maybe 20/20/10/10
    you can decide then if you need a 5th week

    also some will tell you to start the AI right away during PCT, but i say wait 2-3 weeks and *insert bro science here* have your body recognize the extra estro (thats not binding because of your nolva) and boost its own (endogenous) production of test...

    if you block estro (nolva) and kill estro (AI)... then it will be harder to get natty T levels back up

    You mean something like that:
    DS Triazole dosage /- /-/ - /4/4/3
    Nolvadex dosage: / -/ 20/20/10/10

    or

    You mean something like that:
    DS Triazole dosage /-/ - /4/4/3
    Nolvadex dosage: 20/20/10/10

    thats what the nolvas for bud!

    easiest way to explain it is like a lock and key... nolva fills in the keyhole (receptors) so that the estro doesnt cause growth

    nolva itself is a weak estrogen but shows little (to no) activity at the breast receptors... meaning that extra estro floating around shouldnt be binding to create breast tissue, and your body will "see" that extra estrogen and boost up natural test production

    Epi is good stuff deff run it longer though. I'm on week 6 of my cycle and i'm going to continue until the 8 week mark. I've been running 40mg since week 3 and my blood work came back normal. Youll like it. You don't need Nolva though. It doesnt effect test levels and it doesnt convert to estrogen so no need.

    a SERM is always a good idea to have on hand.. if you want to do a OTC PCT, go ahead you should be fine when comin off Epi; however, its always better safe than sorry...

    google this " epistane is not mild steroid.com " and you will see a post of someone elses bloodwork...
