    I'm only 5'9" and lifting way heavier than guys at my gym over 6'.
    Isn't it amazing what it does to your attitude to add on that 4th plate+ to each side? Kind of walk a little taller.

I can't get endo bloods if my T is too high so I was thinking maybe go about 10 days off before blood work? My end almost crapped when 120 had my T @545. He said that's PLENTY high... so a bit of a disconnect there between his opinion and mine
    My doc says "yeah you're high, but I'm ok with that number" when I'm around 1200 lol

    Where's your doc? Might be worth the drive!

  4. Just curious if you guys think you were near your natural max before taking the leap to up your test? Or was it just to do?

    10 days from 750mg is cuting it close.
    Oh no, I will be at 200mg before the blood test. I'm really just dropping from about 200 to 120. 545ng T level was 4 days after a 120mg shot

    Before trt I don't think I was at my max, just couldn't force myself to eat a buttload of food consistently. Naturally I might be able to put on around 15lbs of extra muscle, but it just wouldn't be worth the extra food needed to maintain in my opinion.

    With TRT, same training but better and faster results. I definitely plateaued on all my lifts before TRT which is why I started with 2 PH cycles (never again btw)

    What did the PH's do?

    All that time for gains then losses

  10. In in week 6 and to be honest, I thought it'd be seeing much more results by now. Perhaps my expectations were to high? I'm up a couple pounds, waste size is down about an inch, strength is up a bit, but nothing profound.

    No, sounds horrible

  12. Doesn't sound right. You sure your diet and routine are supporting this?

    I know the training is on point. 4 days a week, push, pull, legs routine. Weight always increasing from workout to workout, intensity is kept high, reps between 6-12 depending on the exercise.

    I've been eating more than ever. I don't count calories, perhaps I should, but it's more than I normally eat to maintain my normal weight of around 185.

  14. Also- I know the test is good...it's Pfizer brand!

  15. geez bro, I'm not sure. Maybe add some creatine. LOL

    It's crazy man! May have to get on the cell-tech!!

    When I first started TRT over a year ago I made some great gains on just 100mg per week--maybe my body got all it would get from higher levels? No idea!!

    You gained weight and lost an inch off your waist? Sounds pretty good to me...

    What does your average daily meal plan look like? I would definitely start counting calories if you're not putting on much weight.

    That's what happens with minor diet changes, not running 500mgs of test. Something else is going on, likely related to not eating enough.

    I agree with Lex that you probably want to start counting calories and your macros. I'm up 8-10lbs in the last 8 weeks on my bulk and no cycle.

  20. Up about 2 pounds on my morning, in the buff, weigh in.
    There's no doubt that I look better than I have I the past..just thought weight would be a bit higher.
    I'm running 400mg though, not 500 like lex.

    I guess you could stress about lbs on the scale. But the only lbs I worry about are on the bar

  22. Today pumps were so intense it was almost painful on a superset leg/back day.

    Also took PES enhanced, so I'm certain that aided in the pump factor.

    I looked back at my log and at my lowest during this six weeks I was about 179, but 187 today after my workout. Weight dropped about 6 pounds in the beginning, then up 8 pounds since I added in some more food.

    Lex asked about typically meal plan for the day...it would look something like this...

    Breakfast: 2 eggs with 2 pierces organic toast and honey w/ 60 gram protein shake

    Snack: Greek yogurt

    Lunch: 8oz lean meat with 2-3 cups brown rice, and maybe some fruit

    Afternoon: 50-60 gram protein shake with milk, banana, pb, honey (same for the one above)

    Dinner: 6-8 oz chicken or lean beef w/ some type of whole wheat carb source...often a casserole of some kind that my wife makes.

    Snack: peanut butter honey sandwich (or jelly) with 10-12oz milk.

    There may be some occasional binges on Girl Scout cookies or Hershey's chocolate thrown in there...

  23. Not a lot of calories in that, but I personally wouldn't change anything. That looks like a really good diet and like 3fs mentioned, if your strength is going up, who cares about weight. You aren't losing and slowly gaining, so that's good.

    I agree. I could bump it up to 500mg, but I don't mind slow, steady gains in strength and sine size.

    As you increase Test, so do you increase bloat and water retention (and weight)

    Oh ok that's not bad then

  27. Hey guys,

    Did any of you take anything besides Erase for E2 control? I have heard conflicting reports about Erase working. I've been on TRT for about a year, and when I go up even a little my E2 skyrockets, with libido loss and I get real moody. I dont have an AI prescribed because on my TRT dose it is under control. I've been really thinking about this but E2 sides me makes me think twice.

    I'm just using Erase to help control e2 at 500mg/week

    How you feeling my friend?

    Feeling great now! The past few days until this morning I was having signs of high e2 (fatigue, depression, low sex drive, slightly sensitive nips), but that all went away after I started taking 2 erase again instead of 1 (morning and night). I've also started adding the Androgel 1.62 as of last night before bed, and as always it really helps bring my confidence and sex drive back. Kinda stopped gaining weight, might need to increase food intake a little more. Oh, and no more energy supplements until I'm finished with the blast (besides a little caffeine), they were causing my blood pressure to go way up, which never happened when using them before the blast. How is your blast going? I think I'll throw some dbol into my next blast whenever that might be, if I can find it.
