First things first. You really dont need anything to come off T3. All you need is slow taper down in intervals of 7 days or so.
So here what it will look like:
week 1 cut it down to 18mg
week 2 down to 12mg
week 3 down to 6
week 4 stop
I never understood using 100mg T3 for anything..25mg gets me ripped, 12.5mg excellent for bulking. Checked my levels after using 25mg for 2 months with proper taper down and they were normal. Had to stop because I was geting down right too lean.
So just because it works dosnt mean you are low. If you have doubts do blood work and see how you feel. In reality unless you have few fat cells, you not suppose to walk around with 4% body fat all the time. Too much T3 long term is absolutely not good for you either.

Tapering T3 is unnecessary, kind of like tapering down Test. Of course with long cycles and high doses, users might have a little suppression when they come off, but tapering won't fix that.
I've run T3 2 days on, 1 day off. I've also run 5 days on, weekends off. Kind of depends on my workout schedule and how I feel.
50 mcg is all I run. IMO, anything more is unnecessary. And cycling in off days each week keeps things fresh and my thyroid from adapting. I feel good on off days without any lethargy. If I do start to feel lethargy on off days, to me that's an indicator to take a brake.

Just ordered my AT2, thank you guys. I'm on week 4 of T3, week one 12.5, week two 25, week three 37.5, week four 37.5. I went from 15.3% to 12.3% body fat. I'm not impressed.

Not impressed? WTF?Originally Posted by JoeBrooklyn
3% change is pretty damn good. Not sure how much you weigh, but on a 200 lb man, that would equal 6 lbs of pure fat loss.

Your next option is surgery? Bro, sometimes itís hard to take some of your comments seriously.
You should be at 8.5%? Only if your diet and training warrant such a low bf percentage.
Some guys look at these drugs as if results are guaranteed. As if theyíre looking at a weight loss brochure that says 5% bf guaranteed or 8.5% bf guaranteed. Or and AAS that produces 10 lbs of lean mass vs. 15 lbs of lean mass. Thereís no such thing.
This would be the same as a customer in a sporting good store approaching the Salesman asking ďIím looking for a baseball bat that will hit 50 home runs. How many will this bat hit?Ē.
All these drugs/compounds do your assist and support your efforts/actions.
And if you can lose 1+ lbs per week while preserving or gaining lean mass Ė why are you even considering clen and T3? Itís like these guys that gain 5-10 lbs on an oral cycle and then turn around and say they could have done it on their own. Well, thatís what they should have done.
These drugs are all dangerous and should only be used by those who
1. have thoroughly researched and understand them
2. have reached their natural genetic potential
3. understand and except the possible side effects (unlike these guys that say they want to run test, tren and an oral but they donít want acne, libido problems, shedding, etc).
Best of luck

I was told that running is bad and that it eats muscle. When I ran was the only time I was even able to get down to 10.7%. So I started walking and I have never been below 11.5%. Now, out of desperation I'm running again. I have read that it's low test that causes men to gain fat; but if that were totally true everyone on AAS would be shredded and clearly we are not. There must be something that's not being taken into account. It makes no sense that someone who has a fairly healthy and strict dient, does cardio and lifts weights cannot break 10% BF.
When I said I could get to where I am from dieting and exercise I meant that is I could get there with those things shouldnt t3 and clen add to it? Maybe I'm thinking about this wrong.

Sometimes we all get a little impatient. Take your time and think of this as a marathon and not a 40 yard dash. You'll come out ahead.
The main thing is to keep at it, change things up, make diet and training tweaks as needed, make incremental gains, etc - and the KEEP the gains/improvements. They'll add up faster than you think. Just think, you said you dropped 3% bf. Do that 2 or 3 more times, and you'll be ****|ng diced. Just stay on top and don't go backwards.
If you can figure out how to make lean mass gains and lose fat (even if just a little) off cycle, then your cycles will be even more effective. If your having trouble off cycle, crashing, etc, your cycle wont yield much either.

This guy is a trainer and also sells AAS and this was his response to me telling him that EQ is different from Deca and how Rodja belittled me on that ignorance. So I have Rodja on one end and this guy on the other. I feel like I'm the only adult. Why can't people who claim to be so knowledgeable expound on their knowledge without getting touchy, angry and insulting? How can anyone learn or take anyone seriously when this is the stuff that is thrown around? Very sad.

Hey man, it's only the internet. Just let it go. I'm not sure why anyone would be concerned with the opinions from people they have never met.
There are lots of guys here who are genuine and do care to help. There are others who are only deemed with rep points. It's your job to differentiate, take what you find useful, and expand through further research (which it sounds like you are already doing)
