Slotted to start a new blast phase soon and as it's fun to kick ideas around I thought I'd elicit some opinions. I'll lay out my base idea and then some questions I'm pondering at the bottom. Basics: Mid 40s 6'2" 230lbs ~12% (blurry abs, I don't get full six until ~10% and I'm working a ton and eating crap right now) Lifting for 25 years, plenty of cycles and familiar with most all core compounds (except where noted below) Have never done HGH or Slin - maybe later this year but not this cycle. I use aromasin and know dosages to keep things in line. I tolerate orals well - 50mg winny and 350mg tren weekly puts ALT/AST only slightly out of range. I get bloods regularly - probably weeks 4 and 10 for this plan. Last blast will be >10 weeks past. Bloods were fine at cruise week 4-5, pre-cycle bloods again next week. Goal: Stay relatively lean, put on maybe 10lbs (stay under 245 at finish) and regain strength I lost last year due to injury (squats and pulls need to come back). I may choose to lean up in the last 6 weeks as I have a trip toward the end of it. As I'm regaining strength (not as hard as new strength/size) I don't feel I need mega dosing so I'd rather let my lifts and diet do the work over a longer period. Base Cycle: 16 weeks Test E 500mg 1-16 Deca 400mg 1-16 I do fine on these compounds and always have. Bloods will be perfect with regular donation and nothing else in the mix. Could also run this higher if I do less on the oral side. Open to that. Note that I need to run test equal or higher than deca to avoid unwanted sides. I've tried lower test...no go at this age for me. Weeks 1-4/6: Starting dosages Dbol 25mg ED or Anadrol 50mg ED Could also do both at 25/50 and see how it goes. I need to be a bit flexible here on dosage, duration and compound(s) of choice. I check BP daily and elevation from dbol is mild if diet is on point. One thing I've realized as I've aged is that some drugs affect me differently now that I'm older. Dbol gives me heartburn and some suck back pumps. I also got lethargy last time around week 4. Not excited to use it anymore really but it's effective - don't want to run more than 25mg ED. I haven't used Anadrol in many years but back in the day this was my work capacity compound. I held no water, could tolerate outrageous volume, instant recovery and fat melted off me. Who knows what happens these days hence need for flexibility. Could always run test/deca higher if these suck for me. Weeks 10-16: Winstrol 50mg ED. No joint pain at this dosage with even mild deca in the mix. Liver values fine, cholesterol impacted but not horrible and rebounds in a few weeks. I get strong and tight off it without any back pump issues. Oddly winny and/or tren help my blood pressure...everyone is different right? Future Plans: Will be a summer cut/fun. This will either be A) test/tren/mast (some drol early if it works out here or winny late) or B) a long primo cycle (never used primo) with test base and maybe some Anavar added in. I'm leaning toward Primo as I used tren a lot this past year and would prefer to take a longer break. QUESTION 1 - I could add masteron Enanthate at 400-600mg weekly the entire 16 weeks. Maybe no need for winny at the end though it treats me so well it will be hard not to do. Anyone feel this will be additive? QUESTION 2 - I've never run Anavar. As opposed to the orals listed I could use it in place or do a longer run. Open to thoughts on my questions or otherwise.
