    Using test cyp to cut?


    What dose would you run this at, and at what length?


    Would you do far more cardio than strength training? What is the protocol?


    Thank you

    Sorry.

    I've been lifting for about 5 years, I am currently 176 and 5'11. I am on my first test cyp cycle right now, 600mg 2x a week for 11 weeks, and I am on week 5. This is a bulking cycle, but I am planning on the cutting cycle next.


    A side question, how long should I take off between cycles? I hear double the cycle length, just want to double check.

    Blood work will determine this!

    Bro seriously if ur in 5th week of a cycle u should know some of these questions. And damn so ur doing 1200 mg cyp a week for first cycle. I take it no AI either right? That's more than double what most people use for first cycle. But already half way in so anyway. U can cut on pretty much any roid. Cut is all dependent on cardio and diet. Cyp and test e will hold a lil more water than prop, which is why most use prop for cut. But with proper diet and AI prob not really much that u would notice. Please just research more in the future before making any decisions.

    Oh and yes blood work is best indicator but rule of thumb is length of cycle plus pct equals time off.

    So you started a cycle before knowing these things?


    Why?

    Exactly. The smart thing to do would be just to stop ur cycle now and go into the proper pct since the only thing ur prob going to get from this cycle are avoidable sides. My guess would be u don't have pct down yet either though....just a guess. My advice would be get off this section and spend more time in training and diet section of forum then come back and research before doung anything. On side note is that a man beast sighting? Damn didn't realize u were back. Good to see ya bro.

    No, I'm sorry, I meant I'm taking a total of 600mg a week, split up 2x. I know all the proper protocols for bulking, and PCTs (already have nolva and clomid, considering getting HCG for end of the cycle). I am fine with my current cycle -- I just am curious on what I would dose and do for a non-bulking test cyp cycle, if such a thing were to exist.

    And I take arimidex at .25 every other day, or every 3 days

    Would you not just do the same thing you'd normally do for a cut? Create a calorie deficit and probably up the cardio some.
    Or I'm sure if you're eating real clean while on cycle and not eating too far above maintenance then you'll still get more cut looking.

    Ah ok, thank you.


    Do you think there's such a thing as too much protein a day while using testosterone?

    As I said the last time you said this. Dr. Scally is not about PCT for normal proper cycles. Dr. Scally is about helping those who have totally shut themselves down and can't recover.

    Its basically a "hard start" protocol" not a "proper anabolic steroid pct"

    but... its your nuts.

    Dr Scally responds to users questions regarding regular cycles, brother. He answers peoples questions on thinksteroids quite often. People ask him questions about just running cycles, and using HCG to "bridge" cycles and everything else. His medical treatment is generally reserved for those that have induced hypogonadism through AAS use, but he will tell people how to properly use HCG during cycles, and after. Last I checked, he said you should use ~250iu twice per week while on cycle, and during PCT, around 2000.

    That is regarding HCG on cycles.

    That is all articles regarding AAS cycles. Please, everyone read both and educate yourselves to the fullest.

    the use of HCG after the use of exogenous androgens will prolong HPTA recovery

    Do you really presume to know more than his multiple studies on those who are using / have used AAS cycles, ESPECIALLY considering not only his M.D., but that he specializes in HCG?

    You couldn't ever back up your claim in comparison... so why even bother posting that

    Your logical fallacy is appeal to authority

    hCG can cause shutdown on it own via negative feedback loop on the hypothalamus and the pituitary. Why would you want this during PCT when your primary goal is to jumpstart your HPTA? Suppressing GnRH expression isnt something you want during PCT. The usefulness of HCG is during a cycle and that is because it acts as LH in the testes maintaining endogenous hormone production and responsiveness of the testes.

    Humorously enough, you fall under nearly the same fallacy considering you aren't posting any scientific study to prove what you're saying, but rather reiterating what you have heard, which could be information that came off of cake boss for all anyone knows.

    Let's hear your credibility, your ethos. What are your credentials that warrant saying an MD is incorrect? Please don't tell me personal experience, or else you have not only invalidated everything you have said in this topic, but will have invalidated everything in every topic.

    I gave sufficient reasoning above why HCG during PCT is not something that will be conducive to your goals. If you wish to continue with the conversation then please respond appropriately. (i.e what in my reasoning is wrong?)

    What you have done wrong is show no evidence of what you're saying.

    And the point is, you could be appealing to an authority, or quoting cake boss for all anyone knows, because you aren't backing up anything you're saying; you haven't posted any scientific evidence, but rather attempted to use logical fallacies that most of us learned our freshman year of college speech classes to avoid having to face the request. Oh noes, another ad-hominem?

    So you aren't worried about desensitizing the lydig cells by using high doses of HCG after a cycle? And JudoJosh had a good point with delaying part of the recovery process. The testis might recover and produce testosterone but what about the rest of the HPTA?

    It has been stated already that up to 2000iu a day does not induce desensitization, generally. Though most people don't even use that.

    No doubt brother. I looked up what he recommends for PCT, and it is 2500iu every other day, along with nolva and clomid.

    The irony of you telling others to educate themselves is immense.

    The article doesn't give us much in terms of dosage and duration of hCG for PCT not does it mention compounds, doses, or duration of the cycles, which changes the equation.

    Keep on trying...

    You're very out of your realm here and it would be in your best interest to realize this. FFS, you made a thread about whether or not you can cut on Test Cyp.

    Lol I have a bachelor degree and guarantee I make more with it as do the average individual of my major, than you get in your PhD. What are you, a personal trainer for teens? Was your dissertation about whether working out is good for you?

    The uselessness of touting you have a PhD in an attempt to gain credence? In reality, a PhD in exercise science is less useful than an associates in business... lol get that out of there, it does more harm than good... at least to anyone who knows anything about degrees

    While I do enjoy the fact that you're saying I have a PhD, the very fact that you can't read shows a severe lack of intelligence on your part. I'm proud of my MEd and I sure as hell don't need validation from sone random schmuck on the internet.

    College?

    Now you are resorting to insults. You are clearly out of your element. You've worn out your welcome. Move on!
