    Mild cycle on trt

    Hello guys, first post. I'm currently on trt at 100mg cyp per week. After a month I had blood work done and was 591 total and estradiol was only 16. Doc kept me there. I feel better but not great so I upped it to 200mg per week- two 100mg pins twice a week. I'm starting to notice some gainz but nothing crazy and feel maybe a little better. I have some anavar coming to add to this. I was wondering 1.how long before my blood test should I go back to my normal 100mg so he doesn't suspect anything? 2. My bloods are every 3 months.. So I was thinking about going 500mg per week for first two months then going back to 100mg for a month before my test.. Prolly along with anavar. I don't wanna get too much bigger mostly looking for recovery, endurance and some mild strength gainz and fat loss. I do Olympic weightlifting mostly some powerlifting and a few metabolic condoning workouts a few days a week. Do any of you have a better idea on a cycle in between my bloods? I was thinking the test and anavar because I like the idea of low sides. Thanks!

    If your on trt I wouldn't add any more test bc blood work will show that your way too high and doc may drop the trt. I'd do anavar and cardio work.
    Lift hard or go home!! No pain No gain!!

    Just like test takes 4-6 weeks to build up to where it will be at its set dosage, whatever that may be, it takes a bit to come down to normal levels, same with all the other hormones/lipids that are affected by testosterone. How quickly it restabilizes is dependent on the individual and many other factors- lifestyle, sleep, diet, activity level, etc...

    Be sweet if it was as simple as a light switch, but its not.

    Do exactly as your told, get comfortable with exactly how precribed dose makes you feel, then after awhile if/when the time comes to try high dose, you can recognize a "this is different" feeling if/when high dose bad sides start to set in.

    You should be getting labs often if you go high dose anyhow so you dont cause yourself harm

    Something to ponder because it comes down to math
    You start your trt at 100mg/wk- it takes your body 4-6 weeks to build up and stabilize at this new normal, testosterone doesnt work like the masses think with 1 shot is all it takes to mazimize gains...it builds up slowly, and slowly raises your baseline over the 4-6 week period.

    So now you at 600 total t after week 6 using 100mg/wk...great, your about normal for an older guy, but you want to get Into higher levels and begin doing 500mg/wk.

    The same build up happens all over again due to product half life. So it now takes another 4-6 weeks doing 500mg/wk before you arrive at the next step up in total t levels.

    So you have 2.5 months before next lab, well, 1.5 months of that 2.5 months is "wasted" due to time it takes to build up to the new level. So right when you reach the new superhuman level, and where gains will start to be seen, you have to now stop because you have 4 weeks left to "come down" and hope you drop into a therapudic range by next lab or the doctor will absolutely cut you off because insurance company will throw red flags at superhuman levels, and dOctor will stop because he dont want to be on the hook if you stroke out, have a heart attack while under his care using a drug that if abused without constant monitoring, can cause just what i described...because now your family wants to sue him for malpractice and he could lose his licsence because of your abuse.

    All anybody is saying is to be smart about it, give it time, and I'm guessing the frequency of the bloods will lessen.

    Maybe use prop for the extra test. You really should give things about 6 months to see how your trt is working for you before ****ing with it.
    Rest in Peace Robot Lord. First round of Natty Boh is on me when I make it up there with you brother.

    This is pretty much what I was Gonna say. My doc has me on stupid protocol, so im supplementing with prop. Prop is a pain cause ya gotta shoot it more, but it's out of your system much faster than cyp or e. Trying to time your trt tests with long esters is disaster waiting to happen. My next blood test for my doc is in a few weeks and I've already quit the prop. Not taking any chances

    Wow thanks for the great responses guys. I guess for purposes of not losing the script and being patient I will not go any higher than in at right now on the cyp. I will use the anavar since I have it anyway. I have two bottles 60ct of 20mg tabs. Would you recommend going on a longer cycle at 40mg or a shorter stronger cycle of 60mg? Il have to research more on the test prop as I don't know as much about it but sounds promising. Thanks again for taking the time to give your input I do appreciate it!

    If your doing blood work every three months your best option is to use test propionate or even Testosterone Phenylpropionate. Prop is best option since it's the shorter ester but some don't like it because of its known for pip (post injection pain). If this is the case with you get the tpp instead it's shorter ester than cyp. And unless your really low in body fat I wouldn't use the anavar. Your not going to see much from it unless your 12% bf or lower. It's not a magic pill for fat loss and is a steroid still so cut weight first and get lean before using drugs to cut. It's all about diet and training. And if using best to go with 60mg and imo it's not good to run orals over 4-6weeks no ways because of liver toxicity and always use liver support. My favorite is Iron Labs Cycle support on amazon for 19.99. I can keep my liver enzymes within normal while on cycle if using this. Good luck !!!
