It could be argued that aromatization is a non-issue, as an . could always be employed to counter estrogen conversion. This is true, but I believe there is a simpler way to go about it. In my opinion, the ideal pre-contest MPD cycle should consist of a low dose of testosterone propionate (150-200 mg/week), as at least some estrogen is needed to maintain a healthy looking skin tone. This should be combined with 2-3 other anabolics; preferably 1-2 oral anabolics and 1-2 injectables anabolics. Some good examples of orals include: Anavar, Epistane, and Turinabol. As for injectables, most people usually find the following drugs to be compatible: Primo, Boldenone, and Dihydroboldenone (1-testosterone).
Dave, let me clear the air here on some of the confusion… I recommend the 1 vial cycle for someone who is either A. younger or either B. already has high levels of natural testosterone. Now, the typical middle aged male who already had declining levels of natural testosterone COULD go with 500 mg/wk for 10 wks. Recovery is recovery at that point and if you’re going to do it then I see nothing wrong with getting the most out of that first cycle. But what you have to realize is a male with a starting level of high average test levels can still yield the same benefits of someone who is middle range-low end of normal and uses 500mg/wk of test. In either case the person can still gain a solid 20 lbs of muscle from either 1 or 2 vials, the determining factor on this is what they were at to begin with
