    Old guy, thinking of first cycle

    Hello -- hoping to get some advice. I'm 55 and on a modest dose of TRT for a couple years. I know it's strange to think about cycling this late in life, but I really want to put on some muscle. Currently 6'2, 205 lb and about 12% bf. I've always gone to the gym but kind of a hard gainer. I have no illusions of turning into a beast, but if I could gain 10 lbs. of muscle I would be stoked. But I'm wondering if it's a bad idea to start at my age? If not, I'm also wondering what a good first cycle would be. Thanks very much for any help.

    Not strange at all my man. As long as you're healthy and still putting in work, your age shouldn't be an issue. As a matter of fact, I ran my first cycle when I was about your age.

    EDIT: my recommendation would be a test only cycle, 400-500mg per week

    A test only cycle at your age would be fine as Wes said above.

    Just be sure there are no underlying health concerns before you start.

    I'd say go for it. Just keep an eye on BP and you'll be good

    Also, should I include an AI?

    What's your dose of trt currently? Do they have you on anything else with your test?

    That's something you will need to determine. You may need an AI, you may not, but definitely have either Arimidex or Aromasin on hand just in case.

    yeah man, don't let age stop you. as a matter of fact doing a cycle will prob. make you feel 10 to 15 years younger. i'm 57 and still going strong. I would do 500 mg. test e or c. for 12 weeks. this should give you a good idea of how your body reacts to aas. then if u like it, after a break on just your trt, u may want to explore w/ other compounds, but this will be a great start imo- good luck bro!
