Finally after hearing alot of hype talk from my fellow gym buddies over the years about the boost and benefits that a good steroid cycle can bring about I finally decided to go on my first bulking cycle which was mainly a testosterone cycle. Based on the advised from a very experienced body builder and power lifter I decided to do a Sustanon only cycle. My focus was to increase in strength and also muscle mass so Sustanon seemed to be a good bet.
For those of you that don’t know Sustanon 250 is 250mg of Testosterone but sustanon is not just another version of testosterone, instead it is actually made up of 4 different types of Testosterones. The combination of these 4 different types of testosterone has made sustanon a popular go-to choice. Below is a breakdown of the 4 types of testosterones that make up Sustanon 250:
Sustanon 250 Makeup:
- 30mg Testosterone Propionate
- 60mg Testosterone Phenylpropionate
- 60mg Testosterone Isocaproate
- 100mg Testosterone Decanoate
On my cycle I did 500mg per week for 12 weeks. I was pinning (injecting) 250mg every Monday and Thursday on rotating glute cheeks. If you’re new to injecting steroids it’s always a good idea to rotate the cheeks so that you do not get sore. Being that this was my first ever cycle I took all precaution to minimize any accidents and side effects and I must say that I’ve experienced absolutely no side effects. Actually I’ve only experienced good results. But first let’s go back to the beginning a little.
For my first injection I was very nervous because I hate needles. I don’t even like taking flu shots or any form of injection for that matter when at the hospital so for me to inject myself it was like telling me to cut off my own finger. Anyway as I muster up the courage to do it, I first made sure that the area on my glute where I was about to inject was well cleaned. For this I used a piece of cotton wool and some rubbing alcohol. After breaking the vial and sucking the fluid into the syringe it was time to inject it…..OOOooooo this part took me at least 30 minutes to get the first one in but after the first injection the rest gets easier with each one.
After about the 2 weeks my sex drive was crazy and my strength gains were very noticeable. The only drawback i have on this cycle is my work got the best of me rather than the Gym. As on any cycle the best results are gained when along with taking the steroid one also trains adequately and diet properly. I was eating more, enjoying a very noticeable increase in my sex drive and even sleeping alot less due to all the extra energy but I did not experience as much increase in muscle due to my not being able to attend the gym as much as I had wanted to.
After my 12th week I waited about 3 weeks then began my PCT using Tamoxifen but I quickly stopped using the tamoxifen (I actually still have the tablets here on the shelf) because it was causing my eyes to hurt severely. After doing a little research I realized that this was one of the side effects of Tamoxifen so I didn’t continue with it. As far as my PCT is concerned I did some research and found out that there were many people who did not do pct after their cycle but only did it if they noticed any estrogen symptoms like man boobs etc. The reasoning behind no pct was back in the days when Arnold and those older guys were doing cycles they did not do any pct and turned out to be ok. So I decided not to proceed with the PCT and to this day I have not experienced any side effects.
So all in all i have to say my first bulking cycle with 500mg Sustanon per week for 12 weeks went pretty ok and I’m happy with the results achieved even tho i know i could have achieved alot more had I been going to the gym and training as I should. I’m planning on Starting another cycle in January 2016 and I’ll be sure to update my blog with this cycle and possibly some before and after pictures.
