How To Plan Your Steroid Cycle?
You must first decide what you want to achieve from your steroid cycle. Do you want to add bulk, so that you can enter a higher weight division? Are you looking to gain more lean mass or strength to play a sport? Do you want to reduce your body fat, so that you can add more definition to your body? Note that you cannot cut fat and bulk up at the same time, so choose your priorities carefully.
Next, you must choose the steroid that you want to use. Keep your first cycle as simple as you can. The first cycle should be a Testosterone-only cycle. Testosterone is naturally produced by the body, which means the chances that you will suffer from side effects is much lower than if you had started with an anabolic steroid like oxymetholone.
At this point, you might be wondering which type of Testosterone you should use, since there are so many. There is Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Propionate, Testosterone Enanthate and even some blends. The compounds are the basically the same, the only difference being the number of carbons atoms on the ester chain. The more carbon atoms the ester chain has, the more the variant’s solubility in oil. This solubility affects the compound’s release into the bloodstream.
Once you inject one of these esterified compounds into your body, it gets deposited in the muscle from where it will be released into the blood slowly. If you are a beginner you would want to start with an anabolic steroid that you would not have to take frequently, so in this case Testosterone Cypionate or Enanthate are perfect. Some power lifters even use Testosterone suspension just before they perform because it works quickly, in as little as ten minutes.
The main problem is that the existing steroid cycles for beginners have mostly been developed by individuals with no formal training in human biochemistry or physiology. The internet has a lot of personal opinions and dangerous misinformation about first time steroid cycles. For instance, some sites have included Trenbolone in their first time cycles;but Trenbolone can be toxic and is not recommended for first time users. Some others recommend stacking, but stacking is only for experienced users.
