Ok, it's been a while since I've been on here, but I wanted to get some critique on a cycle I have planned for early next year, and also have a few questions regarding PCT and how to run the orals down at the end. I've done a lot of research and have done one AAS cycle previously (VAR & Test) and quite a few PH cycles a few years ago, but want to make sure I get this one right. First up, the basics...
Age - 26
Height - 6'1" (183cm)
Weight - 13st 5lbs currently (85.8kg)
Bodyfat - 13.6% (up from 11.2% due to poor diet on holiday)
BMR - 2198 kCals
Current training - (I do power in the AM and hypertrophy in the PM) Monday - Chest, Tuesday - Biceps & Triceps, Wednesday - Legs & Core, Thursday - Chest, Friday - Back & Shoulders, Saturday, Legs, Core & Cardio (Rugby), Sunday - Rest!
Current Diet - Fairly clean, high in good fats and slow release carbs. Minimum 250 - 300g protein per day, consisting of 3 x 40g shakes plus roast lamb or beef portions during the day every 3 hours and chicken w/ eggs at night. Calorie intake around 3,500 - 4,000 per day (I have a fast metabolism) seems to allow me to bulk fairly cleanly without putting on excess fat or bloat. It's probably the best my diet has been for some time.
Ok, so I'm planning on doing a clean bulk early next year ready for the summer, with my aim to clean bulk again with the last 2 - 3 weeks focused on cutting. By the time I start the cycle I'll likely be around 14 stone, but I want to end it around 14 stone but with a large reduction in bodyfat (3 - 4%). I figured I'd be best trying to build as much muscle as possible for most of the cycle, before using the last few weeks to cut. The cycle is based around Test Enanthate base with Tbol and Anavar to start and end:
Weeks 1 - 6 - 500mg Test Enanthate per week (single shot)
Weeks 1 - 4 - 100mg Anavar per day
Weeks 1 - 4 - 50mg Tbol per day
Weeks 7 - 12 - 750mg Test Enanthate per week (split into two shots every 3.5 days)
Weeks 9 - 12 - 100mg Anavar per day
Weeks 9 - 12 - 60mg Tbol per day
Weeks 2 - 13 - 600IU HCG per week (split into two shots every 3.5 days)
Weeks 1 - 13 - 25mg Aromasin per day
Weeks 14 - 18 - Clomid at 40/20/20/20
Weeks 14 - 18 - Nolva at 75/50/50/50 per day
Standard supplements will include multivitamin, fish oils, BCAA's and CEE, and on cycle I'll be using CEL - Perfect Cycle to support the liver.
A few questions; firstly, am I getting the HCG protocol right going into my PCT? I've read the boards and it seems there's conflicting information about whether to carry on into PCT or to stop before. At 12 weeks usage at 600IU per week, I shouldn't experience any desensitization to it either I wouldn't think.
Secondly, will I need aromasin on cycle or am I being over cautious? As I remember, Tbol and Var don't aromatise?
Thirdly, there'll be a week where I've had my last Test shot at the beginning of week 12, but will need to wait until the start of week 14 to run PCT. I won't be taking orals that week, is that right or should I push those out to start week 10?
Finally, I've looked at Winny and read a lot about it, but not tried it yet. I know I'll likely be told to blast with DBol at the start, and finish with Winny at the end, but I'm not keen on the dried out joints. I've never had any issue with gyno, but I did a stupid M1T and Phera cycle a few years back where I bloated like crazy, so want to try and avoid that. Are Tbol and Anavar suitable for the cut at the end?
If I've missed any information off, or you have any questions, let me know.
