    Shut down of a TEST only cycle


    When does Test completely shut you down?

    Why then is HCG suddenly recommended for say a 8 week tren ace cycle, but a 8 week test cycle it not if test causes total shutdown fast?

    Because tren shuts you down far worse than test. They are talking about the different esters of test (cyp, enan, prop...) which will shut you down the same.

    Running exogenous testosterone will shut you down period. Regardless of the dose. If your planning on doing it, forget about not getting shut down.

    I heard that running 150mg's/week of Test-Prop won't shut you down(Varying from person to person) but generally, it wouldn't. Anyone know about that?

    I have absolutely no evidence to back it up other than the fact that I have ran it in the past but used a full PCT afterwards. Here is where I heard it:

The nice thing about everything I have read on this is it seems to lower estrogen and be just anabolic enough to slowly bring you down in PCT. I never understood why people thought it was a good idea to rapidly come off of things. Best way is to taper gradually and if this has some anabolic properties I am all for it!

    PS- I really would love to log this natty! hint hint lol. Although I did just preorder some .

    nope that is completely wrong. someone has done 150mg/wk. shuts you down completely.

    i have to say the theory does have some validity....i think running a 150mgs of prop a week on cycle would be absolutely pointless....but the downward taper idea should work...at some point your going to reach a dose that is not suppressing natty test but still keeping you anabolic....the only problem is that everyone is different and the dose where natty test starts to come back will be different for us all....you really would have to listen to your body
