    First Cycle + Bloodwork Question

    Whatís up guys,
    I am new to this forum and it seems this forum has everything I need. I have never done a cycle before but I have been reading up on it and my plan is to do


    Test E 250 mg Monday morning, thursday evening
    Arimidex .5mg every 3 days
    for 15 weeks


    PCT
    Nolvadex 40mg daily first 2 weeks, 20mg daily last 2 weeks


    Any advice or feedback on this cycle?


    Also, I keep seeing everywhere the importance of getting a blood test before, during, and after a cycle. I know how to get one but Iím not sure what to get tested, what I should be looking for, or how to use the information once I get it.
    Any other tips or rules I should know about this forum would be helpful as well.

    I just want to make sure you're not going to start PCT until 2 weeks after your last shot with the ester you are going to run.

    Very helpful post, thank you. Do you have any sources where I could learn more about bloodwork? I don't know how to determine my AI dose based off the results.

    I think your meaning HCG. Do this...we have a thread in our forum called " Ask Mr Green". He is a pro bodybuilder and has lots of knowledge. Post your questions here and let's get you fixed up💪

    Iím glad youíre being smart and running a test only cycle for your first time. Depending on your stats you could probably get by with just 250mg per week. Many moons ago that was my first cycle and it worked wonders, but I guess now a days thatís not very common. You came to the right place for advice. Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

    Incorrect. 250mgs pw is just barely above a trt dose and wouldn't be considered a cycle. His test levels would be raised, but 250mgs pw isn't a blast.
    A solid first cycle would be 500mgs per week, split into two doses along with .5 mg adex e3d. This dose of an AI should keep his estrogen in the area it should be.
    Only blood work mid cycle would make sure and then he could adjust accordingly. If it's too high, go .5mg eod or if his estrogen crashes, go .5 mg e4d.
    I do not believe HCG would be needed as legit Clomid and Nolva will have your nuts back plump and bustin big healthy nuts!

    Yah I think I'm gonna pass on the HCG this time around. Funny you mention getting my nuts back plump because that's like the main concern I have about the cycle lol
    If I just have Nolvadex do I also need to have Clomid?
    Thank you everyone for the feedback.

    Lab tests?

    Who is close to you? Quest Labs or Labcorp?

    Those two are the main labs in the US. Once you have that information let us know and we can tell you which test to get.

    Both those labs are near my location and I was going to use privatemdlabs to get a test. Which one is recommended and what should I order from privatemdlabs?

    EDIT: Actually there's only labcorp locations, so that's what I'll use. I just don't know which testosterone I should order.
