    Cycle Review and Critique!

    About to start a new cycle, wanted some opinions, and insight on how this cycle looks so far.

    Test Cyp-500mg/Weeks 1-14
    Dbol-40mg/Weeks 1-4
    Deca-400mg/Weeks 1-12
    Masteron-400mg/Week 9-14
    Liv 52-2-4 pills every day/ Weeks 1-5
    Arimidex-0.5-1 EOD/Depending on how I am handling sides
    HCG-500IU every 10 days, Starting week 4 till week 14
    Clomid-PCT 100mg 1st 15 days/50mg next 20 days

    Main goals is to gain as much lean muscle mass as possible and towards the end to cut down on fat and achieve a harder/leaner looking physique

    Stats at the moment-
    Height- 6'0
    Weigh- 205lbs
    Bf%-10-12%

    Some questions that I have with this-

    A.) Should I keep this cycle to 14 weeks? or cut it 12? I have it set at 14 because I've read that the true effects of Deca take a while to kick in and are better off utilized for longer cycles?

    B.) Test,Deca,Dianabol all having a higher estrogen amortization rate, what are the recommendations as far as an A.I. goes and dosage according to this cycle?

    C.) At the moment my protein intake is set to 1.1lb per bw, with the large increase from protein synthesis, what range or how much higher do you guys set your protein intake while on cycle?

    I would drop the mast and keep it simple, mast is best with tren on a cut cycle. also the liver support is not gonna be neccesary for 4 weeks of dbol

    Is it not good with deca and test? Also why will the liver support not be necessary for 4 weeks of dbol? I thought you take a liver support while taking any oral steroid.

    To be brutal here, pick one. You can lean bulk but you won't be dropping fat either.


    What would be the point of bulking for 6-8 weeks then cutting back what u gained?

    I guess if you'd like to do a phase thing, run for 18-22 weeks. I personally am doing a 10 week bulk and 12 week prep for my contest.


    Thats more advanced.


    Time carbs right, and at the tail end of your cycle run clen and up your AI for water loss.

    So pick either a lean bulk or a cutting oriented cycle?

    Well my plan was just to put on some lean mass and towards the end of the cycle take the Masteron, change my diet, and intensify my conditioning. To hopefully bring out much more muscle definition and a better overall Physique towards the end of the cycle.

    I guess though if I did decide to scratch this and go with a cutting orientated cycle, what is your thoughts on a beginner cutting cycle?

    If you think it's not possible then explain to me how my body fat levels are dropping while I'm adding LBM.

    You're right about carb timing, that's very important.

    You're wrong about running clen at the end, I'd run it throughout the whole cycle.

    You're very, very, misguided about losing water by increasing AIs.

    For drastic measures, if you seriously want to get shredded (in my terms, ready for a contest) you can't lean bulk. Yeah you can go down a few % in BF while adding LBM.

    AI increase with proper sodium, carb and water manipulation works wonders, but I only advise it for a week tops.

    Well now you're calling yourself a liar . I doubt he's trying to get shredded for a contest so he very well could add lbm and drop bf this cycle.

    Yeah yeah yeah


    I've seen success with lean bulking for 10 weeks and switching over to an 8 week hard cut. Everyone is different.

    Pretty much. My goal is trying to hit around 8% bf or lower while putting on as much lbm as possible. In no way am i saying this is achievable with just my cycle but hopefully with the proper cycle, nutrition, cardio, and training I can attain this goal in 14 weeks.

    Why the masteron for 6 weeks, don't need this really and if you want to use it drop the deca and use the masteron the whole time. You want to stay lean and put on muscle, masteron is a better choice than deca. Also you can use dbol for more than 4 weeks, I don't know when this 4 week thing started but that's when the dbol is going to be kicking nice, why drop it. You can lower it but don't drop it. So what I would do
    Test 500mgs 1-14
    Dbol @40mgs 1-4
    Dbol @25mgs 5-14
    Masteron @400mgs 1-14

    I thought that Masteron was used more of as a cutter for the end of a cycle? Also that it shouldn't be used as the main aas due to it not having as strong anabolic effects as other steroids such as deca.

    I'll look more into the Dbol thing, I haven't read anyone using Dbol for their whole cycle mostly just as a kick-starter until the other compounds start taking effect.
