The following cycles and stacks are not intended for beginners. If you have never supplemented with anabolic steroids before you should complete at least one or two cycles of a simpler nature before attempting an Intermediate Cycle. For the true beginner the Beginner Cycle and Novice Cycle links can provide solid examples.
Most people understand what a beginner is; someone who is new to an endeavor and is taking part in it for the first time or while they may have already taken part are still somewhat fresh. For the anabolic steroid user this is someone who has never supplemented before or who only has a couple cycles under their belt; this is a beginner. Then we have the advanced; advanced steroid cycles are for those who have cycled for a long time, have numerous cycles under their belt and who either by desire or necessity have cause to really push the envelope into what is commonly referred to as “the hardcore level.” What then about an intermediate? The intermediate level is a little harder to define as there is no set in stone one size fits all answer to determine if one is at the intermediate level. We can say you should have at least one cycle that has been completed and most would be best served if they’ve completed at least two. If you’ve completed two cycles does this mean you’re ready for an intermediate level? Absolutely not; it means you can be but it doesn’t mean you have to be. Many performance enhancers will be just fine with beginner style cycles each and every time they supplement but for many others, as is often the case in life, many will want a little more.
To determine if you’re ready for an intermediate cycle we have provided you a list of guidelines in-which to go by. Again, and it cannot be emphasized enough, even if you fit these guidelines to a tee that doesn’t mean you have to move into a more advanced level beyond Novice level cycles; it is a choice only you can make. For those who believe they may be ready for an intermediate cycle the following guidelines will prove beneficial:
- Have completed at least one cycle successfully; preferably two cycles.
- Have supplemented with at least three different anabolic steroids and in a successful manner with all three.
- Have stacked at least two anabolic steroids together in a successful manner.
- Desire more than they are obtaining from successful Novice cycles.
These are our guidelines and if you fit the mold for each one you may indeed be ready for the next level should you desire. The following cycle will provide excellent gains for a solid bulking cycle but it must be noted the total bulk will largely depend on how you eat.
Intermediate Cycle I (Bulking)
Notes on Intermediate Cycle
- Arimidex is added due to the large amount of estrogen that may buildup due to the amounts of Testosterone, Deca-Durabolin and Dianabol being used. Most will be able to combat this issue with 0.5mg/eod but some may have to go as high as 1mg/eod to provide solution.
- Gains will come very quickly with this cycle. Those who consume enough calories can expect to gain as much as 20 or even 30lbs in the first few weeks due to Dianabol use at this level. Once the Dianabol has been discontinued the Testosterone and Deca will have built up enough in your system to keep progress moving forward.
- While we have extended Deca-Durabolin into the 12 week mark some may find it useful if they drop the Deca at week 10 or 11 in-order to create a smoother transition into their PCT as this steroid has a very long lasting effect.
- Testosterone-Cypionate injections are to be performed two times per week in equal doses, both at 300mg per injection. A sample schedule might be Monday and Thursday or Tuesday and Friday or any other time frame you can come up with that fits the time frames given.
- Deca-Durabolin can be injected in one 400mg injection once per week along with one of your Testosterone-Cypionate injections. However, most will find it easier to split the dose into two equal 200mg injections by simply putting 200mg in the same syringe as your Testosterone-Cypionate injection. This will not necessarily provide an advantage regarding the Deca’s activity but simply provide a more convenient means of administration.
- If Testosterone-Cypionate is not available you can use Testosterone-Enanthate in the same 600mg per week dosing. Both forms of testosterone are virtually identical. As Testosterone-Cypionate normally comes dosed at 200mg/ml and Testosterone-Enanthate normally comes dosed at 250mg/ml we have simply chosen the Cypionate form based on convenience. 200mg/ml Cypionate will mean 2 injections per week both at 1.5ml. If you use 250mg/ml Enanthate you will simply inject 1.2ml per injection.
