Safe to run a cycle consisting of three AAS? (DHB, Anavar, low-dose test prop)

As some of you may know, I will be starting my next cycle (looking at running it for ~10 weeks) in a few weeks, and right now it looks like DHB (400-500 mg/wk) is going to be the centerpiece, along with a moderate dose of Anavar (50-70 mg/day), and a low dose of test prop (25-30 mg/day) just for feelings of well-being, confidence, and other positive mental effects and to serve as a test base. Will probably also be injecting HCG every week as well along with 2-4 IU/day of HGH for at least the first few weeks of the cycle.

So for those of you guys who are way more experienced and knowledgeable than me -- does this sound like a safe cycle? I know that DHB can boost HCT/HGB significantly, so I want to make sure I'm not setting myself up for something dangerous by throwing in the 'var and t-prop. I'm thinking about taking grapefruit seed extract during the cycle to do what I can to knock a few points off the HCT and am open to taking other supplements to lower HCT as well.

Thanks

Sounds like a good time. Even better, swap the test for trest ace at 25mg eod

Appreciate the suggestion. I'm a bit worried about the estrogen-related effects of trest but might consider it for a future run. For now, though, I think I'm curious to see what running two really dry compounds will do for/to me.

Two reasons, pretty much -- I've heard that prop may be less likely to cause facial bloating as compared to other forms of test, and because it kicks in so fast.

Yes. You might as well go up to 50mg prop, too. Maybe after it peaks bump it up.

I found that to be a myth, personally. Any test with an AI can become dry, non bloating, etc...

That would put me at 350 mg/wk of test -- I'm assuming it's safe to say I would need an AI for a dose that high. TBH, for now I was trying to avoid having to take Arimidex and was planning on just taking the test prop for the mental benefits (mood, confidence, aggression -- I will be spending two weeks out of town on a required trip for school and will be staying around a number of nightclubs and I'm normally a meek/unaggressive guy when it comes to pursuing girls, so I'm hoping the test prop will change that). But would I need to take an AI anyways, even at a dose as low as 25 mg/day?

Propionate really shouldn’t be thought of in weekly amounts. But that’s just my opinion.

I think I get what you mean -- because of how fast-acting it is, right? Would an AI still be necessary at 50 mg/day?

An AI would still be good to have just in case things get out of hand. The human body can be weird. For example I needed no AI while in 500mg/week Test Cyp. Right now I have to take 12.5mg exem about every 5 days on 250mg/week Test E.

Like old witch said you probably won’t need it. But it’s a lot easier to combat the estro sides if the start to pop up then have to order something and play catch-up.

a reasonable amount would be 200 mg test per week. 300mg and surely you're above 99% if not all humans natural testosterone levels.

Why prop? Go with test c. DHB is also C, so this would make it much simpler regarding pinning schedule.

Also, I reaaaly don't think var is neccessary at all with dhb. It's just a milder dht then dhb. Add 100mg more dhb and you don't need var. You feel me. I would much rather add something that acts a bit differently. Like dbol for instance. These would be two different compounds with different effects. Or add deca, npp. But tbh just 500mg test + 500mg dhb is plenty. DHB is strong!

If I was to take DHB I would either add dbol at 20mg or nothing at all (besides test). I'm not that big, I would grow nicely with just the two...

Real anavar is more leaning than dhb for sure. So that helps things. Propionate is of course supposedly drier and faster acting than cypionate. I haven’t found that to be the case, that it’s drier, personally. Seems the same, just like taking more at once though.

Ester really only matters at higher dosages, a 200mg test cycle i highly doubt you'd notice any difference but at say 500+ shorter eaters tend to bloat less. I think for the average person ester doesn't matter and if you wanna bulk and do a contest it's smart to drop enthanate for prop or cypionate for prop the last weeks but that's mostly to be able to come off rather than switch ester. (coming offc) will make you drop water and that's why people switch from long to short pre contest. I'm sure you know this but sometimes we just don't think about everything :)
