    TRT and Bulking


    Finally getting serious about my diet (counting cals, fat, protein, etc). I have been on TRT for almost 1 year.

    My protocol:

    1.25ml Test/DHEA suspension cream ed
    .5mg Arimidex eod

    I have labs once every 60 days and I continually run 1100 test and 20ish estro...pretty dialed in.

    I have a couple of cycle of ph under my belt while on the TRT but wasn't eating enough cals to take advantage. I am 32, 6'4", 215lbs, 14% bf.

    I am curious if my test is running at 1100 continously, would it be possible to make significant size gains just based on my TRT and diet alone or would I still need to take another cycle (I prefer ultradrol/trenazone stack) to really make some big gains now that I am eating over 5000cal a day?

    Thoughts?

    PS - don't bother with the "why?" of TRT for me, its a personal choice.

    Thanks!

    At 1100 you are making enough test to make gains. Clean diet and lift heavy but with good form, you will gain lean mass

    Not if his thyroid and adrenals are shot to sh#t, or GI or liver is compromised, may be there are deeper issues which the testosterone is just masking which can lead into early hood diabetes, Cardiovascular disease, and potential cancer if proper environment is there.

    PLAY NOW PAY LATER.....Self glory is it really worth it ?

    Matrix - not sure what angle you're taking here. Avoid another cycle? Maintain current protocol? Abandon TRT altogether?

    Thyroid is sub-clinical hypo - I take 50mcg Synthroid ed. Pituitary was working too hard - labs indicate problem is under control at the moment. Liver levels looks good, lipids are good, bp is good. I run Cycle Support all the time, plus a multi, plus extra vitD as my body has a hard time maintaining D levels.

    Test before going on TRT was 410. I suffered from all the usual low t symptoms (no sex drive, lethargy, depression, etc). Feel like a different person since going on. I also suffer from a number of auto-immune disorders that MDs (fam doc, multiple internists, specialists) have failed to properly diagnose. The worst of these being a condition that acts like Rhuematoid Arthritis. I no longer have problems with this either since being on.

    Worth noting that Thyroid issues existed prior to going on TRT.

    If you could expand a little on your previous post, I'd really appreciate your feedback.

    Correcting thyroid issues has also shown in cases i.worked on.to correct.testosterone.and.Ra as well.because it hels.to.increase.serotonin which alleviate.pain. T of 410i.would.have left alone until you got other things in.check. Right approach wrong order. R A is easily identified through ana test or direct.rh factor. Correct thyroid.corrects pain in.majority of.people with cfs ..
