Beginner Cycles

Your First Cycle

So, you got interested in steroids and are now trying to figure out where to start. Beginners have one rule: KISS.

That stands for "Keep It Simple, Stupid." The more chemicals you toss in at once, the bigger your chances of going down in a flaming fireball. A big, bloated, gyno-y fireball.

The Basic Bulk

See Your First Cycle

The Basic Cut

The Basic Cut differs very slightly from The Basic Bulk, mainly in dosing. The standard rule of thumb is to not cut while off cycle as some hard earned muscle mass could be lost. Most users anecdotally notice less bloat with Testosterone Propionate so it's often used for cuts, but overall you can use Test E or C just fine as well.

Dosing:

  • Weeks 1-12: Testosterone Propionate, 30-50 mg, ED
    or
  • Weeks 1-12: Testosterone Enanthate or Cypionate, 100-200 mg, E3D or E3.5D
  • Weeks 13: Nothing the first 2-3 days (This allows the exogenous testosterone to clear your body). PCT should start day 3 or day 4 due to test propionate's active life of ~0.8 days.
  • Weeks 13-Til: Starting day 3 or 4 - Whatever PCT protocol you choose.
  • Throughout Cycle (or at least on hand): An AI like Arimidex or Aromasin. Dosing is user dependent and you should get bloodwork to dial in your dose. Watch out for signs of low or high estrogen - especially high estrogen, like excessive bloating or itchy nipples.

Note: You can extend it up to 16 weeks. If you wish to extend it, obviously all your ending weeks will change and the week you start PCT will as well.

Alternatives / Additives:
Another thing to consider is using a ECA or EC stack, this will aid tremendously on a cut:

  • Last 8 Week: ECA or EC Stack, Up To 3xED

If you use Test E & C, it takes about six weeks to fully saturate the blood (i.e. kick in). If you don't want to wait that long and you want to aid in your cut, a popular thing to do is start the oral from day 1 (kickstarting). Another popular thing to do is to run your oral at the very end of your cycle, leading up to PCT (finisher). You can run your oral anytime during the cycle though. You may pick one of the following:

  • For 6 Weeks: Winstrol (Winny), 40-80 mg, ED
    or
  • For 6 Weeks: Epistane (Epi), 40-80 mg, ED
    or
  • For 6 Weeks: Anavar (Var), 40-80 mg, ED

Warnings:

  • Winstrol (Winny) is considered a "dry" compound, which means that it doesn't convert to estrogen. It is a DHT derivative, so hair loss can be a concern. (Sides.)
  • Epistane (Epi) is considered a "dry" compound, which means that it doesn't convert to estrogen. It is a DHT derivative, so hair loss can be a concern. (Sides.)
  • Anavar (Var) is considered a "dry" compound, which means that it doesn't convert to estrogen. It also doesn't convert to DHT. It is one of the most "side-effect free" compounds, but does affect lipids negatively, as most oral steroids do. You should still review the compounds side effect profile.

Nutrition:
It is recommended to keep your caloric intake at no less than 80% TDEE.

Intermediate Cycles

Intermediate Bulk Cycle

By now, you have probably put on a fair bit of mass, and want to see how how much you are capable of. This is a solid second cycle, perfect for putting on mass quickly with minimal side effects. Deca also provides excellent joint support, allowing you to push your body a bit harder.

At this point you have a bit of a feel for how your body responds to testosterone. You can extend the cycle a bit, so long as you come off the deca two weeks before the testosterone, as deca takes longer to clear your body.

  • Weeks 1-12: Testosterone Enanthate or Cypionate , 250-300mg, E3D or E3.5D
  • Weeks 1-10: Deca Durabolin, 200-250mg, E3d
  • Weeks 13-14: Nothing (This allows the extraneous testosterone to clear your body).
  • Throughout Cycle (or at least on hand): An AI like Arimidex or Aromasin. Dosing is user dependent and you should get bloodwork to dial in your dose. Watch out for signs of low or high estrogen - especially high estrogen, like excessive bloating or itchy nipples.

Or you could extend it up to 16 weeks. If you wish to extend it, obviously all your ending weeks will change and the week you start PCT will as well.

Cut / Recomp Cycles

Silver Standard

The following cycle is considered to be a very solid cutting cycle that maintains lean body mass while burning fat. Keep your caloric intake at no less than 80% TDEE.

  • Weeks 1-12: Trenbolone Acetate50-100 mg, ED to your tolerance level
  • Weeks 1-12: Testosterone Propionate(or Testosterone Enanthate), 50 mg ED
  • Weeks 1-12: Arimidex.5mg E3D, watch for E2 crash, adjust accordingly.
  • Weeks 13-14: Nothing (This allows the extraneous testosterone to clear your body).
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: A Dopamine Agonist like Caber or Prami to stop prolactin production.

Q: What should my protein / carb / fat percentages be during this cut?
A:
 It depends on your goals.

  • You planning to eat below your TDEE for a true cut.

Get in your standard bulk protein and balanced nutrients. The rest does not matter. In a caloric deficit, your body will not attempt to convert incoming food to fat. Trenbolone is highly anabolic and will tell your body to not burn muscle for fuel (catabolism).

People have regularly ran caloric deficits of 1,500 calories below TDEE without losing strength. You will notice a loss in energy, but not strength.

  • You are planning to eat above your TDEE in an attempt to gain muscle while losing fat.

Trenbolone has the capability to stop the creation of new fat (de novo lipogenesis) from carbohydrates. This only happens when blood plasma levels of estrogen are low. Regularly dose your AI's to control estrogen. It will not stop storage of fat from intake in a caloric surplus. Therefore, above your TDEE, you want to consume extra carbohydrates to avoid fat storage.

When excess carbs are eaten, Trenbolone will push them into the mitochondria of your cells, generating heat and producing sweat. If your sweating is excessive, you are eating too many carbs. Adjust your carb intake so as to only have a small amount of Tren sweats. It is recommend to not eat carbs at night and only light carbs (vegetables) for dinner.

The requirement for low estrogen for Tren to do it's magic is why we recommend high Tren / low Test cycles for cuts and recomps.

Gold Standard

Works best when body fat is below or at 12%.

Add in the following to the Silver Standard Cut / Recomp Cycle:

  • Weeks 1-12: Masteron Propionate, same mg as Testosterone Propionate

Platinum Standard

Add the following to the Gold Standard:

  • Weeks 1-2: Clenbuterol, 80 - 120 mcg dosed 2-3 times ED.
  • Weeks 1-2: T3, 80 - 120 mcg, split into two to three doses due to T3's short half-life in the body. Ramp up and down.
  • Weeks 3-4: Nothing
  • Repeat as needed.

Equipoise (Boldenone Undecylenate) Based Cycles

Equipoise (EQ) is a fantastic compound that can be utilized in any cycle for almost any purpose. EQ tends to give users a very healthy looking reddish brown hue to their skin tone, almost like a very light base tan. EQ tends to visibly increase vascularity in those who are less than 15% bodyfat and will grow the delts and traps in a way that makes them look volumized and very full. Some forums habe put EQ into his top 5 list of most important bodybuilding hormones and EQ is equally used in powerlifting circles for the increased rate of recovery and the dense dry gains that don't pack on 15+ lbs of water during a cycle. Some users report an increase in cardiovascular endurance, along with a significant increase in appetite. One of the reported negative side effects of EQ is that some users experience mild anxiety that will increase with the dose. For EQ to really shine it needs to be run longer and at a higher dose than any other steroid, but as it is incredibly mild in terms of side effects I see this as a positive thing.

EQ can be run as the main mass builder or an accessory compound for a bulk cycle for those looking for that extra pop in their delts.

EQ can be run as an accessory to tren on a cut cycle to help mitigate the reduction in cardiovascular capacity that comes along with tren use, while keeping muscle fullness and helping to avoid looking flat. EQ really shines as the main compound for a recomposition cycle, where it allows you to keep your muscle fullness and vascularity while building a few pounds of muscle and dropping a few %bf.

Bulk Cycles

Beginner EQ Bulk

For those with minimal AAS experience this cycle will add around 10-15 lbs of dry lean gains that you won't lose much of (if any) during PCT.

  • Weeks 1-16: Equipoise, 300 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-16: Testosterone Enthanate, 100 mg, E3D
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.

Intermediate EQ Bulk

This cycle is approximately as aromatizing as 350 mg/wk of test. So keep an AI on hand but you shouldn't need it.

  • Weeks 1-16: Equipoise, 450 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-16: Testosterone Enanthate, 150 mg, E3D
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.

Advanced EQ Bulk

This cycle ups the dose a bit on the test and EQ and adds in some masteron to help keep the estrogen down and the water off. Recommend running Aromasin proactively to hold down E2.

  • Weeks 1-20: Equipoise, 600 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-20: Testosterone Enthanate150 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-20: Masteron Propionate, 250 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-20: Deca-Durabolin, 200 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-20: Aromasin, 12.5 mg, E3D -- Adjust as needed
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.

Cut Cycles

If you aren't subject to the increase in appetite that sometimes comes along with EQ use, EQ alone can be a very viable compound to cut on. You end up seeing your results faster as you tend to stay a bit drier. This is actually the same as the beginner bulk, calories just have to be adjusted. The effect of slimming down at the waist and broadening your shoulders can be quite pronounced.

Beginner EQ Cut

Surprisingly, the same dosages as the Beginner Bulk, however, adjust your calories to be in a caloric deficit no more than 80% of your TDEE.

  • Weeks 1-16: Equipoise, 300 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-16: Testosterone Enanthate, 100 mg, E3D
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.

Intermediate EQ Cut

The effect of Tren and EQ on your physique during a cut is nothing short of freakish. Estrogen is kept low so de novo lipogenesis is strongly inhibited, Tren leans you out while both Tren and EQ give that huge boulder shoulder and traps look.

  • Weeks 1-16: Equipoise, 450 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-16: Testosterone Enthanate, 150 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 4-16: Trenbolone Acetate, 50-100 mg, ED to your tolerance level
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An Dopamine Agonist like Caber or Prami to stop prolactin production and eventual lactation.

Advanced EQ Cut

Ensure that you have run several cycles with these compounds before attempting.

  • Weeks 1-20: Equipoise, 600 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-20: Testosterone Enthanate, 150 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 4-20: Trenbolone Acetate, 50-100 mg, ED to your tolerance level
  • Weeks 1-20: Masteron Propionate, 200 mg, E3D
  • Weeks 1-20: Aromasin, 12.5 mg, E3D -- Adjust as needed
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An AI like Arimidex in case signs of excessive bloating or itchy nipples occur.
  • On Hand Throughout Cycle: An Dopamine Agonist like Caber or Prami to stop prolactin production.

Very Advanced Insulin Cycle

Warning: Insulin use is VERY DANGEROUS and you can, quite literally, die from it if not done properly. This guide is to serve as only an example of what some people do in order to start using it.

------------ READ -------------------------------------------------------------------------
  1. Insulin can easily kill you if mis-used. Do not fuck around.
  2. BUDDY SYSTEM ALWAYS! Have a knowledgeable buddy with you
  3. DO NOT go to sleep for two hours after insulin use
  4. Keep emergency glucose tablets on hand. If you feel like shit, you need more glucose.
  5. You must have your eating plan tuned to near perfection
------------ THIS -------------------------------------------------------------------------

We use the 5 day training split as an example here. That will give you 20 days “on” insulin.

Day 1 : 5 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 2 : 5 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 3 : 5 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose

Congratulations!! You’ve survived thus far. I assume(hope) you’ve been monitoring your BG levels. You probably have noticed that you are in the higher range using 50 g of dextrose PWO. Now it’s time to drop the carbs slightly. Don’t fret. This should be more than ample amounts(of carbs) to get you through to your PPWO meal.

Day 4 : 5 iu insulin/40 g Dextrose
Day 5 : 5 iu insulin/40 g Dextrose

At this point you should have a good idea of how you react with Insulin in terms of BG levels vs. carb intake .

Let’s up the dose……

Day 6 : 6 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 7 : 6 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose

By this point in time you should be feeling good(ie;more confident),but still respectful to Insulin. Let’s test the waters for 3 days to give you the feel of things. By that I mean we’ll drop the carb intake slightly so you can find a comfortable ratio in regards to iu’s vs. carbs per gram.

Day 8 : 6 iu insulin/40 g Dextrose
Day 9 : 6 iu insulin/40 g Dextrose
Day 10 : 6 iu insulin/40 g Dextrose

Now, the above ratio’s are safe and effective. You can stop right here and continue on for the next 10 days at the above doses/ratio’s. Or you can move forward slightly.

Day 11 : 7 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 12 : 7 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 13 : 7 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 14 : 7 iu insulin/50 g Dextrose
Day 15 : & iu insulin/50 g Dextrose

If you felt confident with the above protocol.You could experiment on days 14-15 and drop your dextrose to 40 g. If you do so, please monitor your BG levels every 15 minutes or so. And have glucose tabs, or another source of quick carbs handy (like orange juice) to stave off any possible signs of hypoglycemia. Don’t panic should this happen,just drink a glass of orange juice, or similar, and in 10 minutes the symptoms will have subsided.

Ok, on to your final week.

Day 16 : 8 iu insulin/60 g Dextrose
Day 17 : 8 iu insulin/60 g Dextrose
Day 18 : 8 iu insulin/60 g Dextrose
Day 19 : 8 iu insulin/60 g Dextrose
Day 20 : 8 iu insulin/60 g Dextrose

Congratulations! You just completed your first cycle/experience with Insulin in a safe an effective manner. To stop at 8 iu’s is enough to get your feet wet with the drug. You can experiment later on. This was simply a guide.
