03-09-2015, 06:09 AM
Let me start offby saying I know everyone is different and Im just a looking for some adivce and pointers from all here cause I sure there are some smart people here.

Ive been lifting pretty much my entire adult life Im now in my 50s. Because of job requirements I am expected to stay fit. Probably like many here I have had ups n downs with training. This year for some crazy reason I am super motivated to get looking ood for summer. 198 lb.s prob 15% or so...unsure. I got a good cyle of tren n test in the closet and working on my diet with lowering carbs n upping protein. Not eating bon bons and gluzzing beer like a college kid. So....here is the question:

How much time doest it take or do you all allow to cut / get looking good or for summer or for your contest? I know ther are lotsa variable and levels training, diets....but maybe for once in my life I would like to see my ab.s ( a six pack or at least 2 tall boys ).

Ther is so much experience and knowledge here I would greatly appreciate anything you would care to share with me.

Thanks so much!

Most people can reach reasonable fat loss goals in a cut of 8-15 weeks depending on how hard they hit the gas. 1-3 pounds of weight loss per week is the range you should be looking for, over 3 pounds a week is usually when you start losing lean tissue (unless starting off obese).

Welcome FBird. If you have never run a cycle before you will see all over the boards reasons to run a test only cycle.
Based on you weight and bf% can we assume you are about 5'5" or 5'6" tall?
Do you do well with a low carb diet? You have to know what works best for you on diet. I keep my carbs up and keep fats low. Then I do a short cycle dropping carbs, then raise them up to where I am slowly losing fat, but everyone is different. I don't rush things because I don't like feeling like shit. Small tweaks to diet win the race, not roller coaster rides.
When you say you have a good cycle, can we assume that includes all AI and pct? Did you happen to get labs done?

Thanks for reply!!! So ..Im about 5'10' Ive used gear now for approx. 6 yr.s mostly test p n deca. I jumped on the tren wagon last summer for an experiment an it treated me quite well. I leaned up , gained some strenght,was able to work out like a beast.....but I feel that I didnt really have my diet where it should have been. I ve been usually runnin g 16 wk cycles n finishing up with somw adex n hcg. Sadly..shame on me I didnt or havent done labs. I guess that is truely the proof n the pudding...but I am a slacker in this area. Mr Waters I say....., the thread on your weight loss. That is amazing. You are a inspiration to me. Wow. 3lbs a week makes sense. I have never tried to manipulate fat intake. Mostly it is the carbs. i restrict. I suppose I should research this more.I was thinking the fats were your friend but i guess thats mostly in the keto cult. Thanks for the replys gentlemen. If thers any more hints or advice I welcome it. Thanks all.

In the later part of 2014 I was on a Test/tren/masteron cycle . I was noticing excellent results , good lean gains. I did not lose weight . Just turned my dough hard . I had to bail for a surgery. I am close to your size and 43yrs. I have recently started a similar cycle actually 8 days in. I have full pct and Ai's. As the other guys said don't start without that on hand. If you want to drop a few you could do that with cardio and a tighter diet. This is just a cycle I like but many run it. Also on a long cycle you need to switch the tren out . I plan to switch to npp.
