Novice Steroid Cycles

If this is your first time supplementing with anabolic steroids it might be an overwhelming task to figure out what to do. You might get confused since there is a massive amount of information available. Sometimes you will notice that different message boards are suggesting different plans for your goal. This can be confusing and also annoying and misleading for many performance enhancers.

You have to understand that anabolic androgenic steroids are not magical. When you supplement with anabolic steroids you still have to follow the rules of nutrition and the basic principles of training. The idea is to enhance what you’re already doing correctly.

Before you begin with the anabolic world there are some important steps you need to take. First of all, you must educate yourself on the hormones. Know what you’re going to put into your body; what the benefits are and also what the possible adverse effects may be. Know how to combat them. Your next step is going to be ensuring the steroids you’re considering purchasing are high quality. Don’t get involved with contaminated products or an under-dosed product or one that’s counterfeit. When you have access to assured quality products there are some important questions you need to answer:

  • Are you a healthy adult male?
  • Have you spent some time building a solid foundation?
  • Are you willing to accept any consequences that may happen should you supplement irresponsibly?

If you answered “Yes” to these questions and you have fulfilled the prior two requirements (education and a quality supplier), you’re ready to begin. As for your personal education, you don’t need to be a steroid expert, you simply need a grasp on what you’re doing.

For the true beginner at performance enhancing, the initial cycle will be one of the simplest cycles of all. While simple it is by no means weak. For many performance enhancers such a cycle will be all they ever need. You will need only 3 items: two anabolic steroids and 1 SERM. One of the steroids and one SERM will be essential, the second anabolic steroid will be optional. It is a 12-week plan, followed by a 3-week post cycle recovery with the total plan taking 17 weeks and is as follows:

Week’s 13 and 14 do not have anything in them for a reason. The cycle is built around Testosterone-Enanthate; therefore you will need to wait a couple weeks to allow the hormone to clear your system before you begin with Nolvadex. You could wait longer, but you will want to start with Nolvadex no later than 3 weeks after your last Testosterone-Enanthate injection.

During this cycle the gains will start rapidly, largely due to Dianabol and begin to slow down as you progress, especially the last few weeks. This does not mean you should stop the cycle early. You need to continue to allow your body to become accustomed to the gains made, if you are going to keep any of them once the cycle has been discontinued.

Let’s discuss each compound:

  • Testosterone-Enanthate: If not available you can substitute it with Testosterone-Cypionate, the two are virtually identical. You will administer the hormone on one of two scheduled plans: one 500mg injection once a week or two 250mg injections twice a week. The second option is optimal but only slightly. This will be the basis of your cycle and will give you the great benefit.
  • Dianabol: You will be taking it every day the first 6 weeks. You might take it once a day or you might split it into two doses per day for optimal results (like 15mg in the morning and 10mg at night or the other way around). Through the use of Dianabol you will add mass and strength very quickly.
  • Nolvadex: Your natural testosterone production will be suppressed due to supplementing with anabolic steroids. After the cycle it’s time to stimulate our natural production and Nolvadex will do just that. The PCT will not bring your levels all the way back to normal, but it will lead you to that end much faster than without.

You must consider possible side-effects like Gynecomastia, water retention, high blood pressure and high cholesterol with this cycle. Both Testosterone and Dianabol aromatize and cause a build-up in estrogen. If your nipples are sore while on cycle, try supplementing with 10mg of Nolvadex per day. If this doesn’t work you will need an Aromatase Inhibitor like Arimidex or Letrozole (0.5mg every other day of either). Further, if you stick to your proper diet you will protect your body from water retention. The right diet is also good for your blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Consume plenty of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

Novice Steroid Cycles

A cycle is the time of use of anabolic steroids, the period of time in-which the individual is supplementing. A stack is the PED’s that are being used during the particular cycle. In most cases stacking should bring better results when compared to using only one anabolic steroid.

When planning a cycle, you will want to stack the right PED’s together for optimal results. Some steroids will be more suited for mass gain, the others for strength. Some will be more suited towards conditioning and then some will be well-suited for all of these benefits. Keep in mind that when you stack various PED’s there’s always the possibility for side-effects. As for anabolic steroids each steroid has its own list of possible side-effects. Many will carry similar possible side-effects, but the levels of probability will vary. The key is to understand the possible side-effects, know how to prevent them and what you can do to remedy them should they occur.

We will introduce three cycles that are considered novice cycles. The one listed as the “Novice Cycle I” is for a true beginner. Most who will supplement with the following cycles will have at least one cycle similar to the “Novice Cycle I”. At the end you will find a PCT plan that is to follow each cycle.

Notes on Novice Cycle #1:

  • Very well-suited for mass but can also be used for dieting. The end result will largely be dictated by your diet in either case.
  • Due to the aromatizing nature of the steroids, SERM’s or AI’s may be needed. Nolvadex is the SERM of choice but if stronger AI’s are needed, Arimidex and Letrozole will work.

  • Switching from Testosterone-Enanthate to Testosterone-Propionate for the last 2 weeks will allow the PCT process to begin approximately 3 days after your last injection.

Notes on Novice Cycle #3:

  • Very well-suited for very lean gains and cutting. The end result will largely be dictated by your diet regardless of desired total results.
  • Due to the aromatizing nature of the steroids, SERM’s or AI’s may be needed. Nolvadex is the SERM of choice but if stronger AI’s are needed, Arimidex and Letrozole will work.
  • Switching from Testosterone-Cypionate to Testosterone-Propionate for the last 4 weeks will allow the PCT process to begin approximately 3 days after your last injection. Furthermore, this will ensure you’re holding a little less water.
