Creating Steroid cycles
Most people know me for writing cycles that work. Some have asked me if there
are any specific guidelines I use to write a cycle.
Here are some basics to think about when writing a cycle.
What are your goals - to lean out/ to bulk up/to wet bulk/ to dry or lean bulk
What is your time frame - 8 weeks / 12 weeks/ 16 weeks / 22 weeks or 30 weeks.
What are the compounds you have access to.
What are the quantities of these compounds in total (grams or mgs)
What is your prior history to using AAS - if so do you have any sides
What are your favorite compounds of choice - are you open to using anything new?
How many days do you train - how good is your pre/post workout nutrition
Other factors I take into consideration are general experience to AAS. No point
asking a first timer to combine short and long esters and throw in two orals.
By rule of thumb.
Keep your first cycle simple and easy
Run your first cycle with LONG esters
Always run your first cycle with a long ester of test
Bulking is EASIER with AAS than cutting so preferably try to bulk on your first
Don't try to achieve too many things in your first cycle. Your first cycle is
all about trial - error - learning how compounds react to your body.
Understand how your diet works WITH your cycle. Acclimatize your bodies caloric
needs to suit your cycle and the compounds you are using for your cycle.
Never EVER treat your body like a roller coaster. Blood levels take time to
adapt so no point running an ester based hormone for a week and bump it up a few
notches. What is the point?
Let your body adapt itself to exogenous supplementation slow and steady.
Remember a long ester is long for a reason. The delivery of the active is
stretch over a longer time frame. Each time you run a long ester give yourself a
minimum of 10 weeks. No point running a long ester for a short run and starting
the PCT. Your active is still being released while you are dumping more
chemicals into your body.
While using harsher compounds for the first time - start out low and work your
way up. You can do more cycles and start out higher AFTER YOU KNOW HOW YOUR BODY
Always - ALWAYS keep ancillaries at hand. Just because you didn't have estrogen
conversion the first time around, does not mean your 3rd cycle will not give you
gyno. Free metabolite action can never be perfectly gauged.
I can stress this enough but please don't try to accomplish too many things
during one cycle. More does not mean better. Throwing in 50 different compounds
is not going to do much.
A lot of people try to throw in fat burning ancillaries early on without prior
experience. Imagine you have a blood condition, maybe elevated BP due to
coagulation levels. You run clenbuterol and equipoise. You may not feel its
effect ON cycle but you are just harming your body more and more.
A simple testosterone + equipoise cycle CAN give you as good effects if
your diet and training are on perfect check as opposed to 10 fancy compounds and
you not knowing what to eat and when.
Just as important as ancillaries are cycle support supplements. Remember liver
toxicity is both underrated and overrated in many cases. Here is a basic concept
people forget, just because an oral is a methyl, the fact that it is a methyl is
not what hits the liver but its ANDROGENICITY ratio. So a little research ALWAYS
goes a long way.
Make sure you are taking the correct support supplements pertaining to your
cycle and your basic supplements as always.
Hope this helps - let me know if you have questions. Stay safe and healthy
