I feel like I deserve even better results since I've put so much of my life into bodybuilding, I guess you could say this "blast" is like a gift I'm giving myself? Haha I'm having zero negative sides, using Erase here and there, and 500mg of test per week (around 9 weeks to go), and I'm feeling great. I used to have a pretty bad temper before trt, and it got worse when I couldn't regulate my e2. But now, even on 500mg you would almost have to pay me to get mad. It's a great feeling, to have no feelings of worry, anxiety, anger, sadness, just positive all the time. And you know what? I'm eating better, eating more, and lifting harder now than I ever have in my life. I've put in a lot of hard work, now it's time for a turbo boost.
    Awesome man, I hear that. Having been in the gym for over 20 years all natural with great results through nothing but hard work and now being on TRT for 2 years, I am still in awe at what I am accomplishing with the same gym work ethic and the extra "boost". At 38 I have taken down every PR I have ever had and there isn't a single person that can take me down in my BJJ training- which is a huge compliment mentally. Maybe at some point down the road, when I get used to feeling as good as I do, I might consider a little extra.

    I crashed my e2 last year and let me tell I would rather have high e2 than low. Anxiety, panic attacks out of nowhere, waking up in the middle of the night scared, no concentration. It's the same symptoms that a woman gets when they go through menopause. What sucks is that it takes a few weeks to recover.
    Never had those kind of feelings. Just not all super horned up like I thought I might be. Of course, having two small children may affect that to some degree!

    Total testosterone

    E2
    full CBC (which covers a lot)

    Anything else you guys think I should test? I'll probably donate blood a week after the blast.
    E2 for the hell of it, liver enzymes, PSA, BUN and creatinine should about cover it. Plz post the labs, I'm really interested in the hgb and hct seeing how that's what I'm struggling with now.

    If hgb is too high, they won't let you donate, happened to me...

  4. After the blast, should I just not use any test for a week to bring my levels back down before my endo tests my blood?

    I went for labs 10 days after my last shot of 250mg (200cyp/50prop) and my test number was 789. My free test was not tested. My RBC was 6.45, Hemoglobin 19.3, Hematocrit 55.2, and ALT 45. Everything else was normal. Hope this helps.

    Yeah, blood pressure

  7. Is it better to go from blast dose to TRT dose or is it better to go from blast, wait 1-2 weeks then go to TRT dose?
    I guess TRT right away will just take longer for Test levels to return to normal instead of waiting?

  8. Haven't seen but maybe a 2lb increase at this point. However, I've leaved down quite a bit.
    Does that seem about right at 5 weeks in?

  9. This thread has motivated me try a little extra. I am going bump it up from 100 ml to 350 and see how it goes. After ten weeks I will go back to 100 wait two weeks and get everything checked.

    Are you trying to bring the test down as quickly as you can?

    Bump on this gents?

    Are you lifting hard and eating hard? I would think you should see a minimum of 5lb increase on a 400mg/week dose. I'm up 15lbs at 500mg/week, and last night my strength shot up tremendously. Instead of 3 sets of 10 on lat pull down I was doing 3 sets of 30 with the same weight. The only reason I stopped was to make sure I didn't push too hard and injure myself. This morning I woke up and just felt super solid, and my grip strength is way up. I wanted to crush something as soon as I woke up lol I feel great!

    In that case stop it cold turkey for 2 weeks to lower levels then do your HRT dose.
    What dosage are you running for your blast?

    Well my blast is basically over now. I was 500/5 weeks, 750/3 weeks. 750 was a waste, low sex drive, lethargic, bloat, etc. My TRT is 120/week but I'm so happy around 200/week. 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

    The results are WOW! Maxes: Bench from 275x3 to 325x2. Squats from 225x2 to 335x2. Dead lifts from 300x2 to 450x1. Pull ups sets of 8-10 easy.
    I'm only 5'9" and lifting way heavier than guys at my gym over 6'.

    I hear you, what day after the shot was at T @545?
    10 days from 750mg is cuting it close.

    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.

    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!

  24. 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?

    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
