Approved Log MidLifeGains. Cut in PCT then Fourth Cycle: Lean gains

midlifegains

V.I.P.
EVO Logger
Hello again.

I dropped off the forums and training in general towards the end of my second cycle. Planning a fourth cycle now and wanted opinions. Previous cycles, body comp, strength gains, physical progress, diet, sleep, exercise. below

I am two weeks into PCT and will get blood in 6 weeks.
1.5iu HGH.
20mg tamoxifen
25mg Clomiphene

==STATS==
39
6'0
87 kg
15% BF

==GOALS==
  • Lean gains
  • Continued increased strength.
  • Reduce body fat.
Ideally, I'd like to drop as much body fat as possible while still gaining.

I've been keeping up the calories in PCT to avoid muscle loss, so I added some fat. At what point post-cycle does it make sense to have a calorie deficit, or does it at all? I've dropped from 25% to 15% body fat in the last year, so I'm definitely going in the right direction. It would be nice to drop a few more percent for summer, either on or off-cycle.

Then, what is a strong combo for lean gains and appropriate for an intermediate 4th cycle?

==CYCLES==

My asks.
1. Advice on standard calorie intake (w/out exercise. I aim to consume additional calories to match exercise) if looking to protect muscle gains and avoid fat gains. I've been around 3500 the last few weeks.
2. Suggested varied, ideally weighted (i think) abdominal exercises targetting 5 sessions a week.
3. Does anyone distribute the N2 products in Europe? My last shipment from the US didn't make it.
