I Am Now Trying 80 Mg Per Week of Cypionate
« on: January 12, 2015, 03:23:58 am »
I am now trying 80 mg/week as an experiment.  I just want to try it for a few weeks or months and see how I feel.  My theory is that I may actually do better at this dosage.  But who knows?

Well, what I have noticed consistently is that morning erections are stronger at the end of cycle rather than beginning.  So this is a case where I'm wondering if I'm overaromatizing or something.  Plus, I just want to experiment and see if it really makes a difference.

That's what I noticed: my best days were the day right before the injection, leading me to cut down as well.

Yeah, it's interesting cuzz initially the higher dosages of testosterone seemed to help - it was almost as if I needed a jump start.  But now I don't think that is the case.

What's the timeline for initially?  I find the same thing happened to me!  I'm having to cut down at least 5 mg per injection from what originally worked really well subq.  Strange.

What was your previous dosage?
Current protocol -- 66mg Test Cyp 3x per week, 0.1mg Arimidex 3x per week, 125 IU HCG every day.

I'm with you guys.  Am noticing I feel best right before injection, though I am also finding myself annoyingly horny fairly often.   Will probably follow you on this one Peak.   Doing the math, 80mg test cyp * 70% test/test cyp = 56 mg, which is pretty well in line with natural production.

I wonder why y'all are doing better later in the cycle rather than the beginning. I wonder if the beginning is taking y'all to high? Either that or maybe some healing has taken place enough to where y'all do better on lower doses? As in with changes to lifestyle and hormones, neurotransmitters blood flow insulin ect has finally improved enough to the point you don't need such high levels. I'm reminded of the Tsimane who have T levels in the 300's for the sake of immunity but do just fine with these levels. Although they do probably have way better neurotransmitters, glucose/insulin control, less plaque than the majority of us...

Yeah, I've wondered about all of the above.  No way to know it until they can start measuring things behind the blood-brain barrier.

It's interesting that he says 60-80mg a week is fine.  I went off Test on 1/31, after injecting just 60mg... and literally felt fine for 8 days after.  Now my T and E got pretty low but i still felt OK.  I bet I will be just fine on 50mg E3.5D, and 250IUhcg.

I may even try 90 per week if things are looking OK

PeakT,
