Best Pre-Contest Cycle
For those who have competed, or have competition knowledge, please share the best pre-contest cycle (in your opinion of course).
I realize doseage may vary depending on age, experience, height, and lean mass, but post your thoughts!
At 5'11" 200 in my avatar pic, I'd like to compete at 5'11" 200 LOL..........
Only shredded to the bone!

Let me expand on a cycle I'm toying with. I know a lot of bodybuilders do test prop pre contest, but from what I've read....test is test, half life is the only difference.
Therefore I'd like to stick with a longer half life version like Test E or Cyp. Let me know what you think of this cycle? Also note that I've never done tren so this may be a risk to use the last 2 weeks with the BP, shortness of breath sides.
Week 1-10: Test E or Cyp 250mg. twice weekly (500mg/week)
Week 1-12: Equipoise 200mg. twice weekly (400mg/week)
Week 7-10: Clen (need to read more on doseage for a 3 week)
Week 11-12: Tren Ace 50mg EOD
1-2 days pre-show Furosemide 40 mg (1-2 tabs)
As needed: Arimidex .5 mg

i would run the test longer... just take care of some things so you don't bloat. use the adex and watch sodium intake. some people will probably disagree but that's me...

What about the tren at the end? This would be my first time with Tren, and have read some concerning side effects (shortness of breath, etc.). At the same time, I've heard a ton of praises about it. Such a shame that the best products carry the most side effects LOL.

A couple of people I know have a rule to drop test 4 weeks out from a show. Seems to work well for them.
The last cycle I knew one of them was on went somthing like this
Test Prop 100mg ED week 1-8
Masteron 100mg EDO week 1-12
Tren Ace 75mg EOD 4-12
EQ 400mg/week 1-12
Winny 100mg/day (oral) week 6-12
ECA week 1-12
I know its a **** load.....dont even know if he knows what was working well. I know he did look great tho. Came onstage about 198lbs ripped to shreds. Down from 230

Oh and yea homeboy was looking crazy placed top 8, out of 20+ I think, in his weight class at a national competition. I think he may have pick'ed up a supp contract also.

People who juice and dont grow either got ripped or dont eat right and traint right, decideto go party, basically clowns like guidos(no offens eot anyone hard to explain without using such a common term)
EDIT: But some compounds wont build, only maintain or help strength, just wanted to say that.
"My bad" you really tried to prove a point there. The only reason this/these post of yours bothered me is i just saw another pointless one in the CEL Formestane thread you prolly had no idea what you were agreeing with.
I would say Tren or Prop, Winny, Clen, Masteron would be solid if you could get that.
It comes down to how much you need to lose? this isnt gaining time it only cutting. To high dose of test and youll end up sloppy and "round"
I would say got to MD.com some of those guys have solid cycles pre-contest.

pretty standard precontest cycle:
test cyp 500 - 1000 weeks 1 - 12
tren 50 - 100 weeks 4 - 12
winny 50 - 100 weeks 4 - 12
clen starting at 20mcg - 120 mcg weeks 4 - 12
run everythign through the show. idk why anyone would drop test four weeks out that makes zero sence and you asking for a serious loss of muscle. not worth it. bloating isnt generally a problem due to an anti estregon, and a low carb diet.

NOT a 100% but definately a contributing factor IMO. i mean think about it, your getting leaner and leaner, which means your body is looking for energy anywhere it can get it, then you drop the one thing that helping you maintain muscle the best. Just doenst make sense to me. I mean lets be serious you can take all the BCAA's you want but its nothing compared to Test for muscle preservation during a serious calorie deficit.

but, Pulumbo recommends keeping everything constant as less chance for a rebound to occur in the weeks coming up to a show. and i trust what he says lol

Some of Palumbo's stuff on gh/igf-1/aas etc. is pretty scetchy. Have you ever see him on stage? He was a bloated, barrel stomach looking mess.

distilled, what you said makes sense to me. i guess i was thinking more about if someone dropped test and wasnt taking a bunch of other stuff.
