    Im doing my first cycle and want to know, if you take 300mg a week of equipose, with this supplement N2 Guard, should this keep side effects at bay as they clain. I will do Clomid and Proviron for PCT. What do you think?

    as i've mentioned before in other conversations, all steriods are based around testosterone. each one behaves slightly differently. some have high side effects. some low. some give more mass, while others help harden you up. there are many variations between steroids but one thing they all have in common is, they should all be run with test as your base. once you introduce a steroid to your body, you will begin to shut down and stop producing natural test. without test, you will feel lethargic, tired, unmotivated, low sex drive, ect ect ect. so no matter what cycle you do, it should always start with test. test is kind of like the one size fits all steroid in bodybuilding. depending on how you use it, how its dosed, what ester you pick and how you control estrogen, it can be used to cut or bulk. if you only ever used one AAS, test would be the one to choose. side effects can be rough when you take large doses or go in unprepared (having no AI), but if you run a small to moderate starter dose, you will do great. 

    at this point, i would use test only. when you use steroids, its smart not to use more than one new compound per cycle. that way, if you do experience a problem, you have a better idea of what is causing it. get an AI, such as adex or aromisin and run a low dose while on cycle. this will keep some of the test from converting to estrogen, keeping your test levels higher and reducing a little bit of the fluid you'll hold. keep the dose low though, as you do want some fluid retention and you do want some estrogen. too much may limit your gains. in the future, you can consider using EQ. its a great, low side effect compound, but you'll want to see how test effects you first. if you want to, you can add in an OTC cycle support type drug, but IMO, these things aren't as great as the companies selling them would like you to think. for your PCT, there is no real need for prov. the clomid should do just fine. start it 2 wks after your last injection of test e or cyp. 100mg for 1 wk, then 50mg for 2 wks. 

    so this is a good jump off point to start doing some more reseach. before you jump into the cycle, take your time and learn everything you can about long acting test, like cyp or test e. learn about AI's and reseach clomid. make sure you understand what your diet needs to look like. if you dont eat enough of the right foods, you will not be happy with your results when you come off cycle. if someone been training for 2 years, understand the right diet and training needed to make gains, weighs around 175 lbs at 5'10, you can expect to gain 25 lbs on this cycle and keep 10 lbs or more when its done. 

    wks 1-10(or 12)

    test e or cyp 350-500mg EW, split into 2 injections. 

    adex at around .5mg 2x wk

    pct starts 2 wks after last injection
