Thought I'd post an update to get feedback

First off, im 34 yo, when I started, I was 5'10, 185lb, been training for years but only about a year for size. Not sure of bf but I wear a size 33 pants.

Been doing 500 mg test c per week,

That's it. No other gear for first cycle.

Today I'm 201lb. Strength is definitely increased, have not had any side effects til this week. I have very slight nipple sensitivity. Like after running in a wet tshirt.

Also I think I may be holding water, my sodium intake has been pretty high.

My plan is to take 10mg daily nolvadex, which I already have a supply.

Anyway, feedback? Advise for next cycle/rest of this one? Thanks

No, only nolvadex. I also have hcg. I realize that nolvadex only blocks receptors, but I was acting on the advice from the guy who introduced me to gear.

A buddy gained 30lbs on test400 twice a week in a month.

So 15lbs in a month at 500mg a week aint bad.
My buddy ate like a horse though.

Edit- Although this has no benefit to your question ill add that letro might help your nipple issue

You can get the AI you need, I suggest aromisin, from one of the sponsors here.

Well, following the advice of my buddy, I was going to wait two weeks after cycle then do 40 mg/day nolvadex for 2 weeks, reducing to 20mg for another two weeks and 10 days/ 500 iu hcg.

But after reading the comments I will research and use an ai during cycle

Start on the aromasin 12.5 mg eod as soon as you can.
Save the Nolva for PCT.
Order some Clomid to go with that Nolva for your PCT.

Cut your sodium if you know it's high. Not only does it increase fluid retention and therefore bp, but a lot of your gains (the ten pounds in ten days) is water from too much sodium/creatine or something.

It was smart to run test alone the first cycle so you can get to know what will be the base of your future cycles.
Seeking information here is very wise as well.

Keep reading and learning and consider the advice and opinions of others.
We are all a little different but some things we have learned are pretty much universal.

Respect,

I really appreciate the feedback.

Anyone recommend adding anything to the second cycle. My buddy thinks I should run tren and test next.

From what I've read about tren it is like a super steroid.

What kind of gains could i expect weight wise from that? Only 1 person knows I am using gear and the fewer the better. I don't want to go from say 205-210 to 240 in 3 months. People will get curious.

Should I run a cutting cycle? If so what would any of you recommend?

As always, thanks for the feedback

People taking aromisin during cycle usually take 12.5mg eod. Or they just keep it on hand for use when signs of high estrogen are present.

I am not as experienced as the other guys here at SI, but I read a post that a very respected member made and he said to focus on the cycle you are on, and not the next one yet.
