You are asking yourself right now whether you should use steroids or not, and you have no idea what to use and how much. You want to stay safe and you want some solid results. What do you do?
Well friend, that is totally up to you and your conscience. But chances are you're going to do it and I have enough articles already explaining the reality of steroid use, so let's assume you are going to do a cycle.
Below are 3 different beginner steroid cycles that will pack on some good mass and are relatively safe. At JDB.com I don't advocate steroid “abuse” or higher dosing than necessary, so what you'll see below are cycles that would be safe to use and more mild on recovery than much of what you may have already read out there, yet effective as hell at the same time!
[EACH CYCLE IS FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY. JOHN DOE BODYBUILDING DOES NOT ADVOCATE STEROID USE.]
Cycle #1- TESTOSTERONE ONLY
I've already talked about the 1 vial steroid cycle enough in the past, let's get into the beginner 500 mg/wk test cycle.
What you'll need are 2/ 10 ml bottles of Testosterone Enanthate or Cypionate. Test E and Test Cyp are ok to inject just once/wk so they are convenient and very effective. Also, testosterone is one of the less faked compounds out there, so chances are that what you're getting is real, unlike many other more exotic compounds on the market.
The type of needles you want that are easiest and safe to use are 23 GAUGE/3 ML/1″ syringes and they can be bought online if your local pharmacy will not sell them to you. Laws vary state to state.
You will inject 2 cc's 1x per week for 10 weeks. You will inject into your butt cheek and the following week the opposite one. hen you stick the needle in, be sure to pull back on the plunger about 1/8 of an inch first, and if you see blood then do not inject because you're in a vein. Simply re-inject in a different area on the same glute.
The test will take roughly 2-3 weeks before it really starts “kicking in” and at that point you'll notice increased sex drive, increased strength, and increased sense of well being. You may notice some acne coming on. Hey, all I'm going to say is it's part of the game sometimes, and usually it subsides once you get used to the hormones.
I never ran any anti-e alongside a cycle of just 500 mg/wk test. Honestly I never did and I never had any issues with gyno. But everyone is different and if it makes you feel better then use some Nolvadex @ 10 mg/day. In 10 weeks you could experience gains of a solid 20 lbs of muscle off just testosterone alone and this would make for a solid first cycle!
Cycle #2 – TEST/DBOL
Ok, so you're dead set on a stack for a first cycle. Is it going to kill you to do a stack your first cycle?
No it's not. Do I think it's absolutely necessary? No I don't, but if you're trying to make damn good and sure you're packing 20-25 lbs on the frame in something like 8 weeks then be my guest.
What you'll need are 200 Dbol tabs that are 5 mg each, or 100 Dbol tabs that are 10 mg each. They're are higher mg tabs out there but I don't like them and splitting them is a fucking pain in the ass, not to mention I personally think 90% of high mg tabs are highly under dosed.
If you have 5 mg tabs then use 5 tabs split up during day for just shy of 6 weeks (40 days total) or if 10 mg tabs then you're going 2 1/2 tabs/day for 40 days. I like good old fashioned 5 mg tabs the best, and I always felt stronger when I split them up throughout the day.
On the Test, 1 bottle is fine, and run the “1 vial test cycle” I have on the site, with Dbol in the first 6 weeks. 20-25 lbs very easily can be gained off that, and I'd wait to go to 500 mg/wk test the next cycle.
Could you go 500mg/wk this cycle? Yes, but why would you when you can already potentially pack that kind of mass on that quickly on what I've talked about right here?
You want to take as little as needed to get the job done, this way you can only go up if you need to. You're only going to gain so much in a couple months anyways, so why use 1,000 mg/wk if all it takes is 250 mg/wk? It's pointless!
As a safeguard you should use 10 mg/day of Nolvadex alongside this cycle, just in case you're gyno prone from DBOL. I never was, and I ran countless Dbol cycles with never using Nolvadex, but everyone is different and I cannot suggest not using it because if you got gyno I'd feel bad you took that advice.
Just remember, none of the bodybuilders back in the day used anti e's and VERY FEW HAD GYNO ISSUES! But like I said before, get it if you want to be 100% sure of it.
If you cannot find tabs then type in your search bar “Research chems, Nolvadex” or “liquid Nolvadex” and you'll find research sites that sell it online. It's easy to find and the liquid versions have always worked fine for me.
You will be running this cycle for 8 weeks, first 6 weeks on Dbol, then finish out the last 2 weeks with just the test cycle. Remember, go look at “1 vial steroid cycle for beginners” on here to see how the test is ran.
Cycle #3 – Deca/Dbol
Deca/Dbol stack has been around for decades and if you can't gain on this then steroids aren't for you.
You'll see no testosterone in here and it's for cost reasons. Deca/Dbol has been run without test for years and guys make it sound like the anti-Christ, but the reality of it is it's not bad if Deca is kept conservative.
What you will need is 1/10 cc vial of Deca and 200/ 5 mg tabs of Dbol. You'll be using 5 tabs/day of Dbol split throughout the day(for first 40 days of cycle), and you'll follow the “1 vial steroid cycle for beginners” only using Deca in place of the test. This cycle is an 8 wk run.
Don't listen to the jive about how Deca is worthless if it's not ran at least 15 weeks, Deca can do plenty for you in 8 wks, trust me!
If Deca was worthless for less than 12-15 wk runs then you basically discredit the majority of Golden era bodybuilders who predominately used steroids the last 8 weeks before a competition just to help maintain muscle mass while dieting.
WHAT TO USE FOR RECOVERY
Be sure to read The Importance of PCT (Post Cycle Therapy)
You'll need 20 tabs of Clomid here, and you should start your Clomid 14 days after your last shot IN ANY 3 OF THESE CYCLES.
Why? Because you want the half life of the drugs to be out of you before you begin, this way it all goes to recovery and it's not wasted. Run 1 tab of Clomid (50mg) for 20 days.
A little old school here, but effective nonetheless. Also know that the 3 compounds mentioned in this article are a few of the most LEAST FAKED steroids on the market, and a few of the most affordable ones. You are better off knowing that you got real shit instead of trying some exotic mystery cycle.
Remember, without the food intake I don't care what you use, it's not going to happen! You need gas for your engine or your car doesn't run. Gear or no gear, get that diet straight first!
Good luck and happy cycling!
