Novice Cutting

Novice Cutting

The following cycle will be ideal for the beginner who wants to cut and harden up. First time steroid users are strongly encouraged to begin with the Testosterone only cycle. This includes those who want to lose fat; you can do that with a testosterone only cycle.

Type of Testosterone

Testosterone will be the base of this cycle and stack. The ideal choices will be Testosterone Cypionate or Testosterone Enanthate.

It’s often said that Testosterone Propionate is the better choice for dieting, as it will cause less water retention. This is however scientifically impossible. An ester is attached to testosterone (a hormone) to slow down and regulate its release in the body. Propionate is a small ester and Cypionate or Enanthate are larger esters. Once the ester is removed, the testosterone hormone you are left with is the same. Water retention will not occur until the testosterone is active and that happens after the ester is removed.

If you hold water during your cutting cycle, it may be due:

  1. Aromatase: Testosterone converts to estrogen via the aromatase enzyme. If estradiol (E2) levels go up, the body will hold water. Testosterone that’s given to the body can lead to water retention. The use of an aromatase inhibitor (AI) will keep estradiol levels under control.
  2. Too many carbohydrates: carbs can cause water retention. Many will blame the testosterone or its type, but far more often than not, it’s the diet to blame rather than the hormones.

  • Anastrozole may need to be adjusted. If you experience heavy bloating or achy feelings in the chest slightly increase the dose. But don’t rely only on feeling. Nipples might be tender due to increased levels of testosterone. On the other hand, some may find the dose needs to be lowered to 2-3 times per week only. Blood work is the best gauge if possible.
  • If you use Testosterone Propionate, reduce the dose to 400mg per week. It carries more testosterone per milligram due to the smaller ester. Both Sustanon 250 and Omnadren may be used at 500mg per week.

HCG: It is recommended that HCG is a part of your testosterone cycle. It will prevent testicular atrophy, which will occur with testosterone use. With the use of testosterone or any anabolic steroid, our natural testosterone production is suppressed. When supplementing with testosterone, this isn’t a concern as we are providing our body with the testosterone it needs. HCG will keep the natural production online and this will make post cycle recovery more effective. 250-350mg two times per week will suffice.
