This is my first post as a member on this website. Please go easy on me as I have a few serious questions about a couple of supplements.
I am a 29 year old male and have been lifting for 12-13 years on a consistent basis. I have used many different supplements (mostly creatines, proteins/carbs, and mainly in the past couple of years).
I do not log my workouts because I know that I give it everything i've got when I head into the gym to lift, and as many of you who are at the gym regularly probably would agree that your so keened in on your reps/sets and weight that you know whether you are making gains or not.
As I said I am 29, 6'4 and currently 247-250 pounds. I am not sure what my body fat percentage is but I know that I have more fat than I would like in my stomach area mostly, but not anywhere else. I do consider myself a hard gainer so I try to get the proper nutrients so allow for weight gain. I believe that I have reached my genetic plateau as far as goes though so I am considering pro hormones/test boosters.
I am currently in the middle of a cycle of Novedex Xt and I will admit that it has increased my energy and ability to lift heavier in the gym. I have been on it for almost 4 weeks and like I said it has enabled me to lift heavier. I started with 2 capsules and worked my way up to 4 and now I am going down to 3 before bed and will taper down from there. I have ordered some Methyl-E as I said I am considering doing one or two cycles of pro hormones because I believe that at my age I will keep a good portion of my gains while on a pro hormone, especially because I have never done a cycle before and I am more into the mature muscle building state that comes with being 29.
I have done a lot of research about various products and I know that Methyl-E is one of the less potent ones and has minimal sides compared to others. I am also aware that I will need proper support supps while on this cycle as well as a proper PCT afterwards. I will not start my cycle until I have all of the support supps and pct down and on hand.
Now my question is because I have been on Novedex XT for almost a month would it be okay to taper down to two caps before bed and just jump into my cycle on Methyl-E and stop the Novedex XT totally? OR would I be better off waiting a couple of months to allow my estrogen levels to level out and then do my Methyl-E cycle? Logically I was thinking that it would be beneficial to take Novedex XT before as it would lower my estrogen levels enough to allow for maximum gains from the Methyl-E, but I could be wrong as I am aware that too little estrogen is not a good thing either when it comes to building muscle. I am also worried that when I come off of the Methyl-E and having my estrogen being low already from the Novedex Xt that my estrogen will shoot through the roof even though I have the proper pct. I do plan on using Novedex XT as a component in my PCT but I am not dumb enough to use it stand alone even though it has been very potent for me. Any info would be appreciated with regard to this question. Like I said I don't have my supports and pct down yet but I am aware of my options and in the end it will be me who makes the decision as to what I will take and what will work best. I just know that I won't start my cycle until i have those supps on hand.
Thanks everyone for your input!!!
