How to Construct a Cycle

How to Construct a Cycle

So you’ve decided to take the plunge, not just into the soft white tissue of your glute, but into the world of enhanced individuals. You may not be sure yet of which compounds to use yet, or which ones to combine with. Maybe this isn’t your first rodeo anymore, and you’re simply learning from previous mistakes because you accidentally developed Gyno. Who knows. All I know is that in the next 10 – 15 minutes I’m going to teach you how to combine certain compounds for the best cycle possible. Gear up. 

Pick your Goal

The very first thing you need to do is pick a goal. This is the prime focus of your cycle and will largely dictate which compounds and to what extent they will be used. If you’re a female who is going on a cycle for the purpose of muscle gain, the goal would be to build muscle whilst having the least amount of side effects. If you’re a male that is prone to hair loss but wants to retain muscle on a fat-loss diet, you might need to opt for Steroids that aren’t as Androgenic in nature. 

Protect yourself first

Think about going on a cycle like having sex on a first date with someone from Tinder – you’re probably going to be using some sort of protection. This applies to PEDs in the sense that you need to make sure you have the ancillary drugs available to combat any of the common side effects you might experience.  

  • Estrogen Management: Since we know compounds like Testosterone, EQ, Deca, and Anadrol can lead to Estrogen issues, it would be wise to have Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) on hand if your Estrogen gets out of whack. AIs you can use are Aromasin, Arimidex, and Letrozole
  • Gyno Management: We know that elevated Estrogen can lead to Gynecomastia, so if you are already suffering from the early stages of Gyno development, you could deploy a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) such as Evista, Nolvadex or Clomid to rectify the situation. These will stop Estrogen from working on breast tissue. 

What do you need? 

This refers back to the goal but extrapolates it a bit further. Essentially you have two options when it comes to using these types of substances: 

  • You’re someone who always tends to be skinny and struggles to gain weight
  • You’re someone who is naturally “thicker” and tends to carry weight easily 

You might be surprised to learn that the same drugs would not be advised for person 1 and person 2. Let’s discuss person 1 first: 

Naturally Skinny Person

Your whole life you’ve had problems building muscle, and never really had to worry about water weight or clothes even fitting. You usually have abs year long but yearn to be yoked. 

This person is more likely to benefit from “wetter” compounds. These are drugs that typically do convert into Estrogen via the Aromatase Enzyme – which these individuals can afford. 

Nandrolone Decanoate (or even Nandrolone Phenylpropionate) is known as 19-Nors, and these are massively good at increasing protein efficiency and muscle-building capabilities. Typically utilized in the off-season environment for that exact reason, but they do come with a drawback – to some. Some users have experienced some water gain. This is of course not really what you want if you’re already a chunkier person, but since person A is naturally a skinny person and does need to worry about water retention or blood pressure so much. 

If you’re going to be following a training style that is very high in volume (or a cardio-based program such as Crossfit) you could benefit from EQ /Boldenone. Boldenone is known not only for its ability to increase muscle protein synthesis but also for massively increasing red blood cell count. By having higher levels of red blood cell count, you will be able to transport more Oxygen. More Oxygen is needed for… higher volume training! 

Bonus, if you’re really looking to take things to the next level, introduce a Peptide. We know that IGF-1 has been linked to increased rates of anabolism, and that simply training can trigger the production of IGF-1. Why not introduce it exogenously in the form of IGF-1 LR3 which is the longer version of IGF-1, meaning you’ll have a greater chance of actually achieving anabolism. 

Naturally Bigger Person

This person is usually a bit bigger than most, and while they have a great structure and ability to build an impressive physique, they simply struggle with fat gain. They also struggle with Estrogen and Blood Pressure issues more than others. 

For these individuals, “drier” compounds would be a better option seeing as they will still yield a great increase in protein efficiency and muscle-building capabilities, but will do so without causing specific adverse effects. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) options would be best for several reasons. We know that these have insane muscle-building properties, but at the same time, they do not convert into Estrogen at all! 

Primobolan is the most famous of these DHTs, as it almost has zero side effects. Does not convert into Estrogen, doesn’t cause water retention, and does not cause any blood pressure issues. Primo is one of the youngest Steroids, meaning it’s been developed more than others, meaning fewer side effects. 

The second option in this list would be Masteron – widely known as the poor man’s Primobolan. Still extremely effective as an anabolic agent, but slightly less effective than Masteron. That being said, it does have anti-estrogenic properties which can be useful to make use of more base Testosterone in the cycle. 

In regards to orals, you always have the options of Anavar and Winstrol. Both these are DHTs as well and will have both great anabolic and strength qualities. All DHTs will massively increase strength as these are directly linked to force production. These are both dry compounds, with the latter being slightly drier due to its ability to lower progesterone. 

Put on the Finishing Touches

When you have come to the point where you have identified both your goal, problems, and the solution to those problems, you might need one or two things to really drive home your progress with this cycle. 

Plan your PCT 

The PCT is of course known as the Post Cycle Therapy, and if you plan on not using Steroids for your entire life, is essential. These will restart your natural testosterone production after it has been suppressed by the exogenous hormones. 

If you ran a relatively low cycle, you might get away with just using a SERM. SERMs like Nolvadex, Clomid, and Raloxifene Hydrochloride will increase your natural levels of Luteinizing hormone (LH) and Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), which in turn will cause an increase in natural testosterone levels. 

If you ran a larger and more intense cycle, you might need HCG as well. HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) will act as LH in the body and restart the Leydig Cells to start producing testosterone a bit faster. 

Add other Products

We know that you have established your Androgen usage, but there is significant evidence that Growth Hormone can increase the effectiveness of Androgenic and Anabolic Steroids. Adding peptides can massively increase performance and recovery rates, or adding in a SARM like YK-11 can lower Myostatin, which in turn will increase muscle-building capabilities. 

Don’t be a jackass

You might think you’re one cycle away from challenging daddy CBum, but you are really not. Pushing too hard too soon will only lead to dire consequences. Manage your side effects, use the correct drugs, and utilize the correct compounds with one another to yield the best results.
