Hey y'all. I'm planning to run a 12 week cycle to get back to my former physique. Hopefully maybe even bigger and more trimmed. I'm 39 years old and before this past week, I hadn't touched a weight in almost 5 years. I worked out off and on through most of my 20s and the early part of my 30s, but have never used anything other than some simple testosterone boosters, Creatine and Whey Protein. I wasn't a seriously big guy, but I was pretty ok. 6'0 215 and had a six pack. My max flat bench back then was 365. I know I sound cliche, but these past five years, I've focused more on my daughter and my job and have just not worried much about my physical appearance. It has taken it's toll!! Last week, I got a membership at a local gym and today was the first day of my second week back in the gym. I'm gonna go light again this week but am eager to see where my maxes are now. Right now I'm 6'0 even, 241lbs and it IS NOT all muscle. lol I mean, I still carry some muscle under this cushion but I'm definitely overweight. My main goal is to trim down but Id also like to put on some serious gains too. My plan is to run a 12 week cycle of tren-A, HGH and Testo-Max. I've done some homework, but am not comfortable enough about what I'm doing to move forward just yet. I chose trenbolone acetate for it's fat burning properties, and I've read that HGH can help boost metabolism. This scheme(along with the Anavar) sounded like a triple-shot at trimming down. Is it possible(or even advisable) to run the first six weeks of the cycle cutting, then the last six weeks of the cycle bulking? I was gonna add Anavar for the first six weeks and stack Tren-A with Dianabol(and Armidex) for the last six weeks. Should I run Anavar throughout the entire cycle? Should I just do a 12 week cutting cycle? If I do just run a cutting cycle, can I still get good gains? I,ve also read that it is VITAL that I run a 4 week Post Cycle Therapy with clomid and nolvadex to help my body start producing it's own testosterone again. I don't know which of these is advisable... Whether what I've chosen is the best idea for my goals... I don't really know allot, y'all. That's why I'm here. I've made no purchases and don't plan to until I get a better understanding of exactly what I need to do to keep myself healthy and safe through the 12 week cycle and the pct. Hell, the only place I even know where to get any of these things are on the deep web. That sounds sketchy in itself, but I have a friend that's experienced in navigating a couple sites on there where I can get what I need. Probably my biggest question is that I don't know any other supplements I need to be running along with these things to stay safe and maximize my benefits from this. I read that I will wanna run Armidex if I stack Dianabol with Tren-A, to control estrogen levels and that I should add Anavar when cutting up. Thats about all I know about anything I need to run along with these. Hell... If anyone knows a scheme that doesnt involve HGH or Tren-A, I'm willing to listen to any help given. I feel like I dont have any idea of what I'm doing and am asking a whole lot of questions. I really am grateful to anyone that takes the time to read all of this and help me. It's important to me that I do this right and dont f**k myself up. Thanks again to any and all who dive into this book I've written here to help me. Truly grateful!
