    Critique my next cycle
    on: 2013-09-17 02:03:04
    Hello Bro. First of I’m a big fan, been reading a lot of your replies on here, and appreciate you for giving us very informative info. Here are my stats:Height = 5’11Weight = 215 (will be at least 220 by end of current cycle)Bf% = 13-15I’m on a Test E only cycle at 500mg/wk for 10 weeks, 10mg ed nolvadex, .50mg e3d adex. Cycle will be followed by a standard PCT of nolvadex and clomid. I haven’t used gear in 7 years, so I figured I’ll keep it simple on this cycle since it’s like I’m starting all over again.Next cycle:Week 1-4 35mg D-bol ED (what is the proper dosing time? E.g. every x hours, before workout etc.?)Week 1-12 500mg Test E (should I increase this? 600? 750?)Week 1-11 400mg Deca or EQ (haven’t decided yet, please recommend)In addition, I will be on the following throughout the cycle: 10mg ed nolvadex, .50mg adex eod, .25mg caber 2x/wk, 200mg ed vitamin b6, and 6 tabs ed of Liv 52.Supplements: whey, creatine, glutamine, bcaa, arginine, multivitamin, vitamin d3, c, e, 6gms of fish oil, and zinc.Diet: at least 250gms protein, 300-400gms carbs, and 4,000 calories that mainly consist of chicken breast, fish, egg whites, rice, pasta, oatmeal etc.Goal: I’m not competing, and don’t plan to. I’m just your run-of-the-mill 9-to-5 guy who likes to get BIG - I like pure MASS, and I find big bros more aesthetically pleasing than let’s say, bros that are shredded with washboard abs etc. I understand that it won’t happen overnight, but my goal is, say 230-235 pounds. Looking forward to your reply, thanks again bro!

    Hey bro, thanks for visiting the Q/A and reading the work I'm putting together here. First off, lets talk about your food intake. At your height and weight, i think you can handle a good deal more protein than you're getting. I would focus on getting about 2 grams of protein per Lb of lean mass. My suggestion would be closer to 350 to 400 grams a day. From there, I'd start with about 300 carbs and 100 grams of mostly healthy fats. If that works out for you and you don't see yourself getting fat, I would add in more carbs and fats. Try to taylor your diet around the protein though, keeping it up high. 

    For your next cycle, I would keep the test at the same dose. Honestly, even if you only added in the dbol, you would upping the total mg of hormone for the cycle, so I wouldn't see a need to add more test. Considering that you want to add dbol plus another hormone, the test is just fine where it's at. You will be going from 500mg EW in the first cycle, to about 1 gram of total hormone in the next cycle. I dont think this is overkill, but I certainly would keep the test where it is. Both EQ and Deca are great compounds for their own reasons, but if you want all out mass, Test/Deca/Dbol is a classic mass building stack. Something about the synergy of these compounds together work very well. If you split your dbol into 2 doses a day, you should be fine. If you really want to split hairs, 3 doses will keep your levels more stable. Be aware that dbol has a high conversion to estrogen, so you may need a little more adex while running it. DO NOT use nolvadex on cycle with deca. Believe it or not, this can actually create gyno issues. So rely on your AI for estogen control. As it is, you really dont need nolvadex on cycle, if you are using an AI. Also, be aware that Deca can shut you down harder than many steroids. You may want to consider using a low dose of HCG through the cycle to help you bounce back quicker. I'd run the test just a little longer than the deca, as deca has a longer life. And one more note, now days, I will run longer cycles and switch test esters throughout, but I found that when I ran 12 wk cycles, I liked to change test esters on each cycle, so if you used test e, I would personally use Test Cyp this time around. If you don't switch, I really dont think it'll be the end of the world. It may not have made a difference for me, but I felt like it did, mentally ;)  Here is how i would outline your cycle :


    Test 500mg

    adex .5mg 3x wk (more or less as needed, just dont take too much and kill all water retention)

    HCG 250IU 2x wk


    deca 400mg


    dbol 30mg


    PCT starts 2 wks after last test shot
