It's really going to vary substantially from doctor to doctor.
I tested at 209
My doc put me on 50 a week but prescribed enough for 100 a week,
Which I quickly moved to,
I now supplement that dosage,
And feel like superman.
Just an FYI..prohormons are extremely damaging to someone;s own natural test production. Dont be fooled by the fact that you can get them from a supplement store. My advice if you want to mess around with hormons try testosterone. You have a much better chance to recover from it than prohormons. I remember the infamous M1T. Strong but such poison and the new clones are not any better. IMO guys try to stay away from anything that is not a straight steroid with some track record unless you want to hit TRT early in life.
I know some of you are in love with prohormons but they are nothing but trouble.
I know guys who did well controled cycles of test and subsequent test/dbol with great results and recovery. How much can you gain in 4 weeks on prohormons and shut your system to hell only to lose most of it....doesnt make much sense to me.
I started trt in April. Dose is 135/week. For me, it feels like I had been cheated out of my normal gains for the past 3 years. Now, with the trt, I can progress according to the effort I put into my workouts and discipline I have with my diet. Without trt, I was stuck at a very sub optimum level of body composition. Now on trt, I progress, I am bigger, stronger, and a little leaner. The only problem I have is a little excess water/ bloating. I have supplemented with a light sd cycle bridged into epi. The epi really cut the estro related sides of the trt. I'm sure that I will reach a point where I level out and gains become a little more difficult. Till then I am living it up
Thanks for everyone's feedback...
I have been on TRT for a couple years now. First on testosterone cream then HCG mono now test cyp 100mg per week. The cream and HCG resolved a lot of symptoms, but I never could get my T level up to a decent level and never noticed any particularly good gains in mass. I hope that I can finally get my level up to the top of the range and maybe I will finally see at least a noticeable effect in the gym.
I'm excited for you guys that have thought this through and are about to embark on the TRT life. If you've checked off all other variables and it comes down to this, it is a life changer. Mood, confidence, mental clarity, body composition, libido, etc...
It's like being 20 again, but with all the knowledge of a 40 year old. Ever joke about wanting to go back? Well...
So guys, I'm seeing my doc later today...he's gonna have the results from my recent bloodwork. My question is, what age is considered too young to go on trt? After all, you pretty much have to be on it for life once you start, right? I'm almost 43 btw.
If it's needed after running through all possible issues causing it- then it is never considered too young.
Thx for the replies fellas! ?
So my total test came back as 221 which the doc says is considered low normal. He wants to put me on test enanthate and see how it goes.
Did he run any thyroid tests (T3, T4, TSH), eliminate lifestyle variables, etc?
Yup, thyroid numbers were all within normal range.Originally Posted by kisaj
Great info, thx!Originally Posted by BJE
221 is definitely below normal. I don't know, call me a skeptic, but I don't think anyone should go on TRT after one test. I think several tests with a full review of everything by a specialist should be done. Rule out sleep issues, stress issues, etc. Just because if you don't, then TRT will work great at first, then you'll slowly go back to the original problems and by then you'll already have shut down your natural production.
I'd hit up Matrix on here and let him give you a run down of all the tests they run.
I got my first shot of test e yesterday (400mg). My doc wants me to repeat the same dosage every 2 weeks. However, wouldn't it be better in terms of establishing stable blood level concentrations if i instead dosed 200mg every week instead of 400mg every 2 weeks?
200 is a cycle, not TRT. Looks like to high of a dose to me. But yes, once a week would be MUCH better in regards to highs and lows.
You should PM Matrix on this, he seems to realy know his stuff, might be abl to help you out...
