How to plan an AAS cycle?

How to inject

So, I want to plan a new cycle. how do I start?

Some shortcuts appear in this article:

ED – Every day

EOD – Every other day (Day on – Day off).

EW – Every week.

AAS – Anabolic Androgenic steroid

Now, let understand which are the goals. is it bulking? is it lean mass? is it cutting?

Let’s understand the goals and which products we should take for them:

Cutting – we’ll involve short acting esters for less water retention, tablets with products that don’t gain water retention.

For example:

Injections – Testosterone propionate, Trenbolone Acetate, Masterone propionate, Nandrolone phenylpropionate.
Tablets – Winstrol (Stanozolol), Turinabol, Anavar (Oxandrolone).

Lean mass – We want to take products that we’ll gain mass but with less fat and less water retention. sometimes we don’t care about more water retention.

For example:

Injections – Sustanon, Testosterone Enanthate/Cypionate. or we can take Testosterone propionate for less water retention. Masteron Enanthate/Propionate, Primobolan, Trenbolone Acetate
Tablets – Turinabol, Anavar.

Bulking – We don’t care about water retention, but we want to use compounds that will gain mass. sometime it will be “dirty” mass (with more fat).

For example:

Injections – Sustanon, Testosterone Enanthate/Cypionate. Trenbolone Enanthate or Parabolan. Boldenone undecylenate, Deca.
Tablets – Dianabol, Anadrol. optional: Turinabol and Anavar.

Now we understand our goal and what we want to choose. now let’s understand if we want more potent or less potent cycle.

Each cycle have to include testosterone compound. let’s understand the other compounds:


Testonsterone – the most common AAS, for men must be include in every cycle. usually common dosage of Testosterone Enanthate is minimum 500mg/EW. experienced users takes 750mg EW. dosages like 1g/EW will cause more side effects.

Nandrolone – this compound is 19-nortestosterone, it gains water and making gaining muscle. this compound not for the first cycle, but from the 2nd it can be used. possible to classified it for a mild-intermediate users.

Trenbolone – this compound for advance users. it had a lot of side effects, it’s also from the 19-nor family like Nandrolone. but it much potent than Nandrolone. consider using this products only if you have some experience of 4-5 cycles. if you are first time user, better to use Trenbolone Acetate for checking how this compound affect your body.

Primobolan – This product is for mild-intermediate users. the main goal of this product is lean mass, but need to take more than 400mg per week which is minimum 4ml EW.

Boldenone – This product most common used for bulking. two main points with this product – water retention and appetite. Boldenone increased the appetite and water retention. also this product have to be taken minimum 12 weeks for seeing results. also dosage should be minimum at  400mg EW.

Masterone – A mild-Intermediate product. allows to gain lean mass and hard looking. like other Mild-Intermediate products. the minimum dosage have to be 400mg/EW.


Dianabol – the most famous oral steroid. 17AA steroids that means it harsh on the liver and can be taken for short period. usually limited 4-6 weeks. dosages from 30mg for beginners and up to 50mg-60mg for experienced users. need to do blood test for checking the liver values during the cycle.

Anadrol – like Dianabol it’s also 17AA steroid. the hepatotoxicity on the liver is high. this steroid usually limited to 3 weeks, Anadrol is only for experienced users. mostly common for Strength.

Winstrol – 17AA steroid, mostly common for cutting cycle since it give hard looking style. giving strength, lean mass gains. limited to 6 weeks due the hepatotoxicity on the liver. common dosages for men 20-50mg.

Oral Turinabol – a lean mass oral steroid, 17AA steroid. common for any kind of cycle. giving a lot of strength and lean muscle gains. limit to 4-6 weeks. common dosage for beginners 30-50mg ED. experienced may take up to 100mg ED.

Anavar – 17AA steroid, very common in powerlifting cycles. giving a lot of strength, lean mass gain and less side effects. Anavar is considered at the most safest oral steroids that exist. dosages for men can be up to 100mg ED, for experienced and for beginners 50mg ED.

After we understand the compounds. so let’s take some cycle examples:

Beginner cycle for men the recommendation is only 500mg of testosterone enanthate EW for 10 weeks.

Usually it divided to 2 shots of 250mg EW.

If I take in Sunday morning the first shot, the next shot will be Wednesday after noon (3.5 days).

Then PCT (In other article we’ll discuss on PCT).

2nd cycle for example (bulking):

1-10 weeks Testosteone Enanthate 500mg/EW divided to two shots.
1-4 weeks Dianabol 30mg-40mg ED

3rd cycle for example (bulking):

1-10 weeks Testosteone Enanthate 500mg/EW divided to two shots.
1-10 weeks Deca durabolin 400mg/EW divided to two shots.
1-4 weeks Dianabol 40mg ED

4th cycle for example(cutting):

1-10 weeks Testosterone Propionate 100mg EOD
1-10 weeks Masterone Propionate 100mg EOD
2-6 weeks Winstrol 50mg ED

5th cycle for example(lean mass):

1-12 weeks Testosterone Enanthate 500mg/EW divided to two shots.
1-12 weeks Primobolan 500mg/EW divided to two shots.
1-6 weeks Turinabol 60mg ED.

6th advanced cycle for Mass:

1-12 weeks Testosterone Enanthate 500mg/EW divided to two shots.
1-12 weeks Trenbolone Enanthate 400mg/EW divided to two shots.

For women:

Since Women shouldn’t take any Androgenic compounds, the safest steroids for women are:

Injections: Masteron, primobolan, Nandrolone.

Orals: Winstrol, Anavar, Anadrol.

Dosages are should be less than men.
