    First Cycle. Would appreciate your input.


    I've been lurking and learning here for a while and I think I'm ready for my first cycle. I'm 33 and have pretty low BF. I haven't measure it, but I'd consider myself lean. I'm going to try to dry out a little more before starting. I'm 6'3" and 210 pounds and have been holding steady at that weight for about 6 months. I've tried to gain more weight but it seems all I can gain is BF. I've been training seriously for several years and feel I have reached my genetic limit.

    I really want to try a dbol kicker with this cycle based on what I've read, but I'm going to be patient and see how this cycle goes before taking more than one compound. What I would like is for you guys to take a look at my cycle plan and PCT and let me know what you think. Constructive crticism and recommendations are all welcome. Here's what I'm planning.

    15 week cycle:
    Test E @ 500mg/week (250mg twice a week)

    On cycle supps:
    CEL Cycle Assist
    Inhibit-P
    multi
    fish oil
    creatine
    Arimidex on hand just in case.

    PCT:
    Clomid 50/50/50/25/25/25
    DAA 3g/3g/3g/3g/3g/3g
    PES Erase 1/1/1/1/1/1
    Reduce XT 2/2/2/2/2/2

    A few question:
    1. Should I take the Inhibit-P throughout the cycle and PCT, or just on cycle?
    2. Should I only take the Arimidex if I need it or would it be good to take as a preventive measure? On cycle and PCT?
    3. Is there another quality AI that would serve the same purpose as Arimidex? Proviron, Tamoxifen, Clomiphene, etc...?
    4. Is anything I'm planning to take going to help with preventing acne? I plan on showering often and tanning while on cycle.

    Thanks!

    1-If you have the money use inhibitp throughout but imo i get a better effect from jus a high quality velvet bean standardized for l-dopa then inhibitp. I love sns n use most of their powders but the inhibitp i guess cuz of the b6 n its effects on ldopa absorption jus doesnt do the trick for me. 2-a.i. everyone is paranoid n claims theyre gyno prone, most of whom dont even have gyno yet so me i dun like to use anything unless circumstamces arise, whats the benefit of me consumin breast cancer meds on cycle unless sides arise? Again its preference, if youre face looks like a puffer fish then sure dose throughout. 3- i like formestane, the topical versions of forma are very effective n is nice if you already have to take alotta pills or liquids as part of your layout. Tamox n clomid are serms make sure you have a comprehensive understandin of a serm n ai. 4- scrub your back wit a super rough sponge or whatever and use lye bar soap, usually like a pale brown rust color.
    Daa i dun care for, messes wit all my hormones not jus test so not for me.
    Erase i would start like 10-14 days after my clomid starts n run it past the clomid for 10-14 days. Have fun.

    Looks pretty good, I see u did your research and studied. I'd run the adex all the way through at .25mg EOD just in case. Inhibit P u shouldn't need to take so u can save that for later. The Erase I'd taper up and then down like 1/2/2/3/2/1. Other than that everything looks great bro.

    Is the reason you recommend ramping and tapering the Erase because the Test E will linger in my system a little into the PCT? I would be tapering up around the time the Test is clearing and when I'm more prone to estrogen rebound?

    If I take the Arimidex @ .25mg EOD throughout the cycle and for the whole PCT, would I even need to take Erase?

    Wait you know you dont start pct right away with injctions cuz you need to let the esters clear right? Obv shorter ester shorter wait but jus wanted to make sure ur aware. And no you dont need erase if you have arimidex. We wanna manage estro post cycle not obliterate it to nonexistence. Two a.i.'s wit serm isnt needed. One n one will suffice.

    I was going to wait a week after the last pin. Is that too soon?

    Thanks for the info. I think I'll just save my money on the Erase and stick with the Adex throughout cycle and PCT.

    My bad I didn't clarify. U won't need arimidex during pct. U taper up the Erase just to make sure estrogen is under control then u taper down. Since you're using Test E which takes about 14 days to clear u will start your pct 2 weeks after your last pin.

    Looks good to me, just remember to start the PCT two weeks after your last shot, like someone said above. Good luck!

    Actually, Tamox is good against gyno, and Clomiphene is good for jumpstarting your natural test production more quickly. But those two are not AI per se.
    Erase is a good OTC AI, it has Armistane, which seems to work. I will be using it for my Epi PCT.

    I would go with Tamox and Erase, and all the other supps you mentioned.

    Again, thanks to everyone who contributed to my post. I have yet to start this cycle but am about to. I've been doing some more reading and have a few more questions. I just want to make sure I make the best decision for this cycle before I start.

    It's my understanding that a long-ester like Test E take several weeks to start kicking in. I really want to make the most of this cycle and am considering a DBol kicker. My dilemma is I'm in the military and I don't want to get so big so fast that people start asking questions. I know some size can be regulated by my diet, but would the DBol kicker take it out of my hands?

    I was thinking about just pulsing 50mg EOD throughout the week and taking weekends off since I don't do any gym work on the weekends.

    Do you guys think that would be beneficial to this cycle?

    Also, do I need to adjust anything for my cycle plan if I choose to introduce a pulsed DBol kicker for say... the first 4-5 weeks?

    THANKS!!!

    Just low dose it 10mg ED preworkout, the weight shouldn't b drastic. U won't need to change your AI dose I believe, aromatization should b minimal. I definitely wouldn't pulse dbol though.

    Why wouldn't it be a good idea to pulse? I've read that it's a good idea and the DBol sides aren't so evident when you pulse.

    I dosed 50mg dbol everyday for my kicker and after the first week people starting saying how big I looked.

    It may not be size right away, but dbol makes you look gym-pumped walking around; veins everywhere

    It's awesome.

    What if I got 50mg pills and cut them in half to take 25mg ED? Would I still need to up the AI?

    Look into T-Bol. Might be a better fit for what your looking for, or maybe even Var, although it can be a bit pricey.

    Both are dry and won't yield that big water/weight gain that will attract unwanted attention.

    What dosages of TBol or Var would you guys recommend with a Test E cycle? I'm not familiar with those compounds.

    I ran test e at 500mg wk kicked off with dbol at 50-60mg ed with no ai. I had no probs at all(maybe im just lucky) although i would def suggest an ai. I am currently running same cycle with 400mg deca added,but i am using aromasin with great results. I love dbol and have never had any sides, but my diet is also in check, so good luck with your cycle.

    I know I'm asking a lot of questions and I appreciate you guys bearning with me. I probably going to order everything this weekend and want to make sure I have everything right before I do.

    1. Would Aromasin be a good sub for Arimidex? If so, would I use the same dosage? Reason being, the source I'm going to use doesn't sell Adex but does sell Aromasin.

    2. Should I run HCG with this cycle? If so, how much and how often?

    3. Would my needs be better suited with Test C or P?

    4. If I run Tbol or Var, would I even need an AI during the cycle?
