Help with 1st/only cycle
Lurked the forums for a bit but just registered to ask the experianced..
I'm Male, 30, appx 17 percent bf at min. 5 ft 8. Got another month or so before I want to start my first cycle. I only plan on doing this once. I've never bulked before but lifted weights to help aid weight loss and just to socialise with work buddies for about 4 years. Never done a propper bulk.
Just sort of ****ed around. Although I have cut to appx 15ish percent bf 2 years ago. Never bulked (just put on weight due to **** diet).
I have the following in mind if anyone could critique it in case I missed anything?
So here goes!
Week 1 to 12 = Test E 250mg E3.5D
Week 1 to 14 = Pregnyl 500ui E3.5D
Week 14 to 20 = Novladex 20mg ED
Aromasin with a fatty meal throughout the whole cycle. 12.5mg E3.5D
Eats and workouts
30 percent above TDEE
Was thinking a 40/40/20 split.
I will probably have a cheat meal a week. Nothing huge. Along the lines of rotisserie sweet potato wedges and fillets or wedges etc from Morrisons. Maybe a thin crust pizza. But hardly any take outs as wife still be on diet and don't want to put temptation in her way. Plus it's not good for my diet 🤣
I cut on keto which from what I read won't be ideal for bulking. Which suits me tbh. Its not very varied but best results I've had
Plan for training
5 Days a week
I was thinking along:
1 Day chest/arms
2 Days back and sholders
2 Days legs/core
I'm quite big chested. Always had it, and it's one of the things I dislike. It's nothing major. But it's quite round and goes quite in at the middle a lot. Like man boobs. But more rounded/ not saggy/ not much fat and quite firm when I tense, just with a big inner bit in the middle
Also. My shoulders are quite small so I want to build them up more than my arms. Not much meat on my back either
I had a couple questions if anyone can help.
Do I use the AI ALL the way through? Including PCT? Or do I stop when I stop the HCG?
Will 12 weeks be enough? I should be starting appx 3rd week in March. As I'm away for two weeks to Florida at the end of June so like to have at least finished pinning by then (not sure if any major sides to look out for that may affect me enjoying the holiday). I'm not quite ready yet but need to know if I have enough time.
Regarding Pregnyl (Picture says oragnol or something on the box?)
Supplier givess a 5000ui vial with 1ml sterile pinning water.
Can I mix this and save it in a sterilized glass bottle/vial? Will it last?
Can I halve Aromasin? The only doses I can get are 25mg x 50
Note: I can only get Zydex Aromasin... the source is reviewed well and recommended. But they're out of pharma
I'd like to keep sides to a minimum as don't wish close ones to know.
I had acne as a teenager. Went on roacuttane (assume this is similar to accutane if not the same?)
And barring the odd spot once every blue moon, I generally have no issues for 12 years and have quite dry skin. Unsure if it's related. But I don't sweat easily either without pre workout/cardio for 10+ mins at least. Not sure why. It's just always been a thing. Eventually it floods out of me. But usually takes a bit to get going. I'm not sure if its relevant or related to the roaccutance from being younger as my skin at the time was quite oily and now is quite dry/flakey. Just thought I'd mention it.
I had hair loss from an early age. I shave it off so not really bothered but thought I might mention it. I have considered follicle transplant so not sure if any of the supps are likely to detriment any of that or if I should be looking at alternatives?
Sorry for the life story 🤣. Wanting to order asap as read it can take upto 2 weeks from supplier
