    First Test cycle
    on: 2013-07-22 08:38:58
    Hi, after researching for a few months I have decided I want to start a basic test cycle. I have been training for 3 years with intensity and eat just under 4000 calories. I plan to compete in mens bodybuilding in the new year and would like to put on some more mass, roughly 10-15lbs.

    My Cycle: wks 1-10 Test E 500mg
    with AI on hand.

    Not sure if I should use just nolva or nolva and clomid together? and would I need HCG?
    Any Suggestions?

    looks like you've done some reseach and have made a good choice here. as for your AI, i would use adex at a low dose, from the start. not only will it keep your estrogen from getting too high, it'll also keep more test in your body, as less will be converting to estrogen. for your cycle, you may do just fine with .5mg 2x wk. if you strart to expereince gyno or find that you're holding too much fluid, you can up that dose to 3x a wk or even EOD if needed.everyone is different so there is no hard answer on this topic. we want to keep estrogen controlled but we still want some in our bodies. if you wipe it out, you will most likely see your gains slow and it might effect your sex drive or ability to perform. if you keep estrogen levels under control, you will not need nolvadex during the cycle. you can use either nolvadex or clomid for your PCT, which should start 2 wks after your last injection.  if using nolva, i would use 40mg ED for 1 wk and then 20mg ED for the following 2 wks.

    HCG is never going to hurt a cycle. if you use low doses through the cycle, there is a better chance that you're recovery will go better. i would suggest using 250iu 2x wk from the start of the cycle and continue on until 3 days before PCT starts
