First Cycle

I just picked up my first cycle and ready to get things kicked off.  About me, Age 49 been in the gym majority of my life.  Currently 210 at 6.0'  Abs are just barley showing beneath the fat tissue.  Have been hitting the workouts hard for the last 3 months.

Purchased 4 vials of 250mg Testosterone Enanthate  and 30 capsules of Oxandrolone. ($500, reasonable?)

I do not have an estrogen blocker yet. thoughts?

I have 10 1.5" pins.  Can I draw and inject with the same needle?

What do you recommend for cycle?  How much and what days of the week?

What am I missing. 

Thanks for the advice in advance!

Even though var is a mild

Even though var is a mild steroid test only should always be your first cycle. Besides 30 var are not near enough var for a cycle. Not sure what mg they are but 80mg ed for 6 weeks is standard.

4 vials of test e and 30 var is about $280 to $300 on average.

For ai's I keep both adex and aro. I prefer pharm grade...Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, or Teva.

Draw and pin with different needles. Piercing the stopper on the vial dulls the shit out of the pin. It'll be like trying to stick a butter knife in your ass.

Look at this link written by a member http://musclegurus.com/forum/anabolic-steroids/new-to-steroids-start-here/first-cycle-checklist-and-shopping-list

Get your diet in order, but from the sound of it you're right at about 12% bf so you're doing something right.

I imagine that you'll likely

I imagine that you'll likely run an 8-12 week cycle with two injections per week. Therefore, you'll need up to 24 syringes with at least a 22g needle (lauerlock pins are nice and easy to change), and up to 24 25g 1.5" needles that you use to change pins from the drawing pin to the injection pin. There are a couple of good sources that you can order from. One has been talked about recently, Take a look at the recently discussed sources, and you'll find what I'm talking about.

Looks like you have 10,000mg of Test E (2500X4). At 500 mg per week you'll use only 6000 of the 10,000 (if running for a full 12 week cycle). At 2500 mg per vial you'll use 3 vials with some left over in the last one. You will choose two days per week to pin the test e. Monday and Thursday would be a good start, pinning 1 cc (ml) per injection, so 2 cc per week (1cc= 1ml; gotta love the metric system!). Each injection will contain 250 mg of oil, or 175 mg of testosterone. 

You must have aromatase inhibitors. You'll need aromasin, and arimidex without a doubt. You may want to consider adding HCG to your on-cycle support in order to keep your boys (testes) in tact. 500-100 iu per week in pretty normal for men to use while administering exogenous testosterone.  There is a sticky that addresses this issue quite clearly with mixing instructions. Here is the link: http://musclegurus.com/forum/anabolic-steroids/new-to-steroids-start-here/human-chorionic-gonadotropin-hcg-mixing-storage

Diet MUST be dialed in. Please refer to a TDEE calculator, which you can find online. There are many of them. I like this one: http://scoobysworkshop.com/calorie-calculator/

From that point, you can create a diet plan to fit your goal. Here is a link to help you with that: http://musclegurus.com/forum/training-nutrition-and-diet/diet-and-nutrition/building-a-diet-plan-from-scratch. I will take the liberty to assume that you want to lose fat and retain or build some muscle. It's not impossible, and your diet will govern the outcome. Juice is just an added component to aid the process. Diet is always always always the most important part of the whole deal assuming you have good training habits or a well established routine beyond three day per week, 3 sets of 10 reps. At the very least 4 days per week, and higher set and rep ranges for certain.  There is a ton of info here on MG and elsewhere where you can find motivation, and ideas to fit your plan of attack. 

Finally, when all of that is hammered out, post your cycle plan in the Cycle Logs. There, you will get support from other MG members, advice and criticism (let me say one thing right quick about 'criticism.' Many people put their tail between their legs and run off into the night naked and afraid when some or many members disagree with their plan. Please DO NOT do this. We are here to help, and many have been doing this for awhile and have a ton of experience; most of us have made mistakes from which you can learn, and therefore NOT MAKE. Some may come off a little harsh sounding, well, please keep in mind, we may be on the juice, and exhibiting alpha-like traits at times ;). The advice you get from members here comes straight from the heart, with nothing but the best intentions of guiding a user of this site in the SAFEST direction given the information received by the person seeking advice, and such as understood by the adviser. So, please, take into account, and remember, that we only have your best interest in mind and wish only for your success). There, that for that :)

As Dolf stated above, save the var for a future date.

Blast,  I have 4 vials of

Blast,  I have 4 vials of 250mg after reading your response, I double checked.  So, I am thinking I only have 1,000mg and only enough for 2 weeks?  If this is the case, I paid $500 and not happy.  Maybe lesson learned

You're fine those vials have

You're fine those vials have 250mg per ml so each bottle has 2500 mgs so each vial will last 5 weeks at 500mgs per week

250x10=2500. 2500x4= 10,000.

250x10=2500. 2500x4= 10,000. At 500 per week, 1 vial will last 5 weeks (2500/5=5). 

if u bought your test e from a local source (not over the net) that's kind of the going rate from what I've seen. Between $75 and $90 for a bottle gear that one can get for $30-$50 depending on the source. Middlemen....
