presents you another cutting cycle for summer which will make you look hard and solid. As a base we will use testosterone enanthate however you may replace it with testosterone propionate as in some individuals enanthate will make visible water retention but I dont think this is a problem as you dont prepare for the contest, right? 🙂 On the other hand switching to propionate will bring you another headache as you will have to inject it EOD plus you will inject Primobolan ( Methenolone Enanthate) 2-3 times per week so having to inject primo and test propionate will keep you really busy and will not give your injection sites enough time to rest.
Nice article, I want to emphasize the part about waist measurements being important.
As a personal trainer myself, alot of my clients get hung up on overall weight, and bodyfat comp; however, these results do not always show through as their weight may stay the same as they gain muscle mass.
The problem with bodyfat measurement is that its very sensative to the tester and the time of day, hydration, ect. I believe on avg the difference in bodyfat could be upwards 5%.
For my clients this means they may even “show” a higher bodyfat after six weeks of training. The only silver lining for most of these people is their measurements, especially the abdominal area and around the glutes. We almost always see these numbers come down, and we let the client know they are indeed on the right track.
Sometimes, it becomes very difficult to convince them that what they are doing is actually working, so we get them to put it in perspective…. are their clothes fitting, are people noticing the difference, and how do you feel.
Finally, specific advice. If you are looking to juice for the first time, don’t get too complicated! I hear of people going out the first time and running 5 different drugs.. That’s crazy; there’s simply no need to do that, you can only grow so fast and there’s not much gained (except risk) by going poly drug. A great 8-12 week cycle for most men is 500mgs/wk of testosterone and .5 to 1mg 3X a week of Arimidex (depending on how you feel). That’s it. No need to over complicate things! Also, you need to get over any fear of needles. Oral steroids are ALL DANGEROUS because they need to go through your liver, and, because of that, they all stress your body a lot more than injections. It’s not that bad, I’ve been doing it 2X a week for years, you get used to it. Not the highlight of my day, but no worse than a lot of other things! If you just want to be sterile, 250mgs/wk of testosterone with .5 Arimidex 3X a week will do it for most men. That’s a high TRT dose, and will make most steroid newbies grow pretty well; but it’s low enough that most people can stay on it indefinitely. Oh, and, one other thing.. Get some Rogaine. 😉 That’s a real negative side effect of steroids, if you’re predisposed to male pattern baldness, steroids WILL accelerate the hair loss. Rogaine (or Propecia, if you can stand the sides) helps immensely.
