I have done many cycles like this:
1. For the reasons you mentioned
2. High-dose (above HRT) Testosterone has a negative impact on collagen synthesis in tendons in a dose-dependent manner.
3. So I wouldn't have to use any ai.
Actually my first cycle was 1 cc of deca a week only. I know I'm not the smartest. A friend of mine just gave me a bottle of Deca he got from Greece and I figured "sure I'll do it" (without any research) but I had nothing but good results and was fairly dry.
My first 3 years on i never used test
Have done countless cycles of anabolics only and was always fine
I started test when i joined internet forums And because after many years on my own test not work anymore
