This was my first experience with steroids, it was a 1 vial cycle of testosterone cypionate, and I gained a solid 23 lbs in 8 weeks off that little fucker!!! It was an old school pyramid/taper cycle, but it worked!!!
Now I'm writing this for a beginner, and my goal here is to keep you safe and smart while gaining some mucho muscles. The first thing you need to know is steroids without a doctors prescription are illegal. Not only are they illegal, they are a schedule III narcotic. That means they are in the same classification as cocaine, meth, and heroin.
Although not always looked at in the same light, they are a schedule III and the penalties lately have been getting harsher. So just know that before you start or bring this shit into your parents house (like I did years ago). As for acquiring steroids, you're on your own.
The only advice I'm going to give you on that is trust your source, and you get what you pay for. I paid $150 for my first bottle of testosterone and that was almost 15 years ago, then I paid another $50 for 8 needles. We didn't have these online sources or the knowledge back then.
But you know something? I'm glad I paid so much for that gear, because I busted my ass that much harder. Coming up with $200 as a kid mowing lawns for $10 each, well it took a little while, LOL.
As for getting needles yourself, you will need 8 syringes for this cycle. VERY CHEAP. It varies state to state, but some states still sell them without a prescription. If not you can order them online at getpinz.com (now closed) and they come discretely packaged right to your doorstep. The size you want is 23 gauge, 1 inch, 3ML. Now, your steroids are dosed per milliliter (or as the syringe says “CC”), a CC is the same thing as a ML, so if you have a bottle of testosterone that says 200MG per ML, that means that there are 200MG of testosterone when you fill your needle up to the 1 CC mark.
All you need to be concerned with right now is how many CC's to dose at. OK, the only other thing you need to get is something called Clomid. Clomid is what you will take when your cycle is over with. It helps your normal levels of testosterone bounce back faster. You will need about 20 tabs of Clomid. A lot of guys want to get other stuff like HCG and Nolvadex as well as Clomid, but as a beginner the only thing you need is Clomid for this cycle.
OK, so you're ready to inject!! The first thing you will do is pop the cap off your gear. Next you will clean off the top of the vial with rubbing alcohol, turn it upside down and stick your needle in it. You will then pull the plunger back to the required dose (I pull mine back further to create more suction so I'm not waiting around forever). It takes a minute for the oil to fill the syringe as its usually pretty thick.
Now you need to get any air bubbles you see out of the syringe. So start pushing the plunger forward slowly until the oil meets the start of the needle (the spot where the needle meets the barrel), Now you want to flick the barrel a couple times if you have to, it gets the air bubble to travel through the oil and right to the top.
Push just a TINY BIT of your oil from the tip of the needle. This way you know that from the time you start pushing on your plunger, its all oil and not air bubbles. Next, stick the needle into your butt cheek, more towards the upper part. Picture an imaginary line drawn across your ass halfway down, stay on the upper half of that line. Every other week you will rotate which cheek you use.
OK, once the needle is in, pull back on it about 1/8″ just to make sure no blood comes into the needle. If you see blood quickly come into the needle, you are in a vein and you need to pull out and go in a different spot. “Aspirating the needle” means making sure you're not in a vein. If no blood comes into it, you are ready to inject. Slowly push down and shoot the oil into you. Not too fast, slow and steady.
Then, pull the needle out and wipe the area off if it bleeds any. Then massage the area for a couple minutes to help disperse the oil. You will use a new needle EVERY TIME!!!
Testosterone Dosing Schedule
OK, here is your dosing schedule for your 8 week cycle. You will need 1, 10CC bottle of testosterone cypionate OR testosterone enanthate. You will inject once a week for 8 weeks.
Week 1- 1/2CC
Week 2- 1CC
Week 3- 1.5CC
Week 4- 2CC
Week 6- 1.5CC
Week 7- 1CC
Week 8- 1/2CC
Clomid PCT Therapy
Once you are done with your 8 weeks, you are to wait 2 full weeks before using your Clomid. This way the half life of the drug has run its course and its mostly all out of you. It would be a waste to start your Clomid therapy while the steroids were still kicking, that is why we want to wait a full 2 weeks here.
You are to use 1 Clomid tab a day for 20 days. After this cycle is over with (after your Clomid therapy) you are to wait AT LEAST 8 WEEKS, before attempting another cycle. 12 weeks would actually be better. You will be anxious to try steroids again, I promise you. But this time off is very necessary if you want to have children someday, and don't want to be on injections the rest of your life.
I myself have to take testosterone until I die, I simply cannot function like a normal human being without it. I don't mind it, but I have good insurance and it's affordable for me. Without insurance it costs a little more, and the required doctor visits cost A LOT more, more than the average person could afford every 10-12 weeks. So keep that in mind also, what are you going to do one day if you have to take this shit forever and you don't have insurance or a well paying job?
Anyways, I'm not going to tell you not to use steroids nor am I advocating them. That's up to you and your conscience. But I can help you stay safe and show you how to use them properly. I will answer any questions you may have.
Train hard!!! -JD
