  1. If you get to dry, lay off of it. Even 1-2 pumps EOD or E3D would work fine.

    Better safe than sorry IMO

    But there really shouldn't be any need for it on this cycle.

    What's your bf% at?

    The higher it is, the more likely sides occur.

    If you don't use one, at least have it on hand always.

    Always use an AI in pct though.
    I don't know if you read further up in the the thread, but I had an argument about it being beneficial to start a cycle at a lower bf%. THANK YOU! That's exactly the point I was trying to make earlier. Starting at a lower bodyfat percentage is all around a better way to go than just saying "it doesn't matter because he's a powerlifter".

  3. Starting at a higher bf% will put you at more risk for sides and in plain terms, it makes it easier to catch gyno.

    That's why I asked and it would make a difference in AI dosing IMO.

    Most people wouldn't need an AI, but myself ran a dry cycle, no AI and got gyno.

    So now, I will always run an AI on any cycle, dosages will vary on my bf% and cycle.

    By the time I get everything in hand, I'll be down another 6-8lbs. I'm running a caloric deficit as we speak and I keep tight macros when cutting.

    I intend to be down near the 210 mark by the time this cycle begins. It'll be another month from now. I'm placing orders tomorrow to start setting all this stuff up on the shelf. I've waited this long to try. I'm in no rush.

    Thanks for the input, man.

  5. Gyno is not the only exasperated by cycling with a higher body fat %. Cholesterol, bp to name a few cycle support will help keep these in check but won't eliminate them. Not trying to scare you from cycling a lot of these members have come to what they believe is there "perfect" cycle through trial and error this being your first cycle you don't have any baseline for how your body will react. This thread is giving you a place to start and a ton of good advice. Good luck let us know how it goes.

  6. New Setup after input from everyone...


    Cycle:

    Epi:
    45/45/45/45/45/45

    Stano:
    600/600/800/800/1000/1000

    Formeron as needed...maybe 1-2 pumps EOD
    (Just to be safe)

    Ar1macare: 4 a day


    Pct:

    Nolva: 20/20/10/10

    Super PCT: 4/4/3/3/2/1

    DAA: 4/4/4/4

    Formeron: as need...maybe 1-2 a day to be sure.


    All normal supps and vitamins being taken.

    Good to go?

    I'm going to log. I hope a couple people stop by to check it out. I appreciate the input, brother. I know that the body is no textbook, so we never know. Just trying to become as informed as possible before putting anything in my body.

    All health is good to go. BP, Cholesterol, and normal physiology/bloodwork is normal. I'm in great general health.

    I'm a strength athlete, but I'm certainly not a fat slob, nor do I have a desire to be lol.

    Agreed, we'll said.

    I think you will enjoy it epi kicks in quick for me and strength gains are nice and constant. Like I said good luck and I'll definitely follow along.

  11. I'd still go with TR3ST. Overall you'd enjoy the cycle a lot more. Problem with first time users is they don't do the research that you have done and can not handle the sides, but it looks as if you have. Running 50mg of TR3ST will be a lot better than running 800mg-1g of stano.

    Science is a great foundation for supplement use, however in any individual pursuit you have to go by what works for you and not what works for a statistical majority of the population. I've used the standard 10-15 grams a day with creatine taking around workouts for a long time and noticed absolutely nothing. The first time I did a load, I started getting 1-3 more reps and went up about 5% on all lifts towards the end of the week (the peak of the loading phase). I know this works for me, so that's what I do.

    Odds are most people can get results using the standard dosing, that's good for them.

    Still kicking myself for not getting TR3ST for my next cycle, I went with Epiandro. Heard good things about both, but TR3ST is leading the positive reviews by far. Definitely using it 2 cycles from now.

  14. So, order is placed for all cycle components and pct.

    Epi/Stano it is for this first run.
    I decided that I would save any aromatising compounds for after I gain an understanding to how my body handles hormone manipulation.

    I'm thinking I'm going to run the Stano a week earlier than the Epi and preload the cycle with 600 Stano that first week and walk right into week 1 of Epi at 45. I'm hoping this combats the lethargy sides of Epi quite well.

    Either way, I'll just take some Man-The-Eff-Up and be fine regardless I can handle a little tiredness...I have kids, I know just what that feels like.

    Thanks gents.

    Is the Cycle Info section the best place to put a log, or just in the general portion of the anabolic section?

  15. Cycle section.

    Good Move with the stano, it should help out a bit.

    This^ is exactly how I felt when I did my first cycle. When you don't know what exogenous hormones feel like, the idea of an aromatizing compound and all that can come with that is a very daunting thought.

    Stano was a part of my first cycle. It was ok, I started my dose too low but your dosing looks right. Although, with what I know now, I will always choose trest over stano. It's best to understand what each compound feels like IMO. You'll be better off for it in your future cycles. Which will probably be more potent

    Yeah, I had gyno as a teen and had a little carryover into adulthood. Training and learning dietary parameters has helped keep it virtually unnoticeable when I'm lean, but there's always that thought in the back of my brain.

    Next time, maybe swing for the fences a bit

    Thanks, man.

    ^^ This. I've heard TR3ST blows stano out of the water. I'm running an epi/TR3ST cycle later this month and I can hardly wait. Heard the stuff is amazing as a base.

  19. So, I've got everything in hand...


    Quick question on the dosage.
    Since I'm running Stano a week early to get a leg up on any potential lethargy, when should I dose it?

    Will it be like the Epi where I split the dosages evenly through the day, or is it ok to just take them in the morning around 9/930 which is 2hrs before training? Or, do I take it closer to training?

    Other than this, Im ready to roll. Day 1 is today

  20. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or pre workout.

    I'd split dosages up evenly throughout the day for Epi / Stano.
