Does running a lower dose of test really decrease chances of gyno?

reduce chances? doubtful, whether its 200mg a week or 500mg ur still messing with ur hormones, u might as well get something out of it and run 500mg.
run arimidex or aromasin on cycle and gyno should not be a problem

I would have to say yes. Aromatase activity increases with testosterone level.

definitely will ime. I upped my test dose from 400 to 500 and thats when I needed to introduce an AI to combat a bit of nipple bloat.

more test -> more aromatizes to estrogen -> estrogen induced gyno. It's a definite yes as far as I know, and from what i've read where people will get sensitive nips as they increase their test dose.

run an ai or a low dose of nolva on cycle and take an effective dose of test....no reason to cut short your gains because your afraid of getting gyno.....just take the proper precautions

I get puffy nips around 2 grams per week, anything less and I get nothing.

I've heard it repeated in the BBing community, that one has to dose higher and higher to continue gaining and then can't drop to a lower dose and see gains. But it would be great to get your feedback as a BBer who's experienced both higher/lower doses to compare.
For example, would you say there were much greater gains on 2 grams/week than with say, 750mg/week?
Thanks for the info!

Is the likelihood greater than you will develop gyno as the levels of test increase? I would say so...However, as others have pointed out, running a cycle of higher dose test with little fear of gyno, can certainly be accomplished by using proper ancillaries.

For me personally 1250mg per week is where I hit a point of diminishing returns. Sides increase and performance does not get much higher when exceeding that for me.

Now, that's a great response, Heavy, thanks!
I'd heard that myostatin peaks around week 8, but not that it returns to baseline at 20!
So as myostatin returns to baseline, you are pyramiding back down to your week 1 or 2 dose then? Interesting idea!
Thanks for the info, mate!

If I were to run a 12 week cycle I would start pyramiding up around week 7 by an additional 200mg per week.

Well my $hit is on its way. Im going to dose 250mg every 3.5 days as any other beginner would do.
