Just an FYI that I'm cruising quite well on a 24 mg E3D schedule, equal to 56 mg per week.  I'm very confident that since going subq I've been overshooting things.

That is awesome to hear guys doing well on such low doses... when I was subQ I was taking 140mg a week and barely broke 600T, with HUGE estrogen.  Congrats K

I am doing much better on this dosage.  I actually am kind of glad they started me out high:  it kind of showed me the "Power of T."  But I wouldn't necessarily think that would be good for everyone.  But they had no program to ramp a guy down.

Anyway, I am now taking roughly half the cypionate as when I started on a weekly basis!

Notice also that I am not a low T guy.

I know I am on a much higher dose than you peak, but I wanted to chime in. I feel better this week on 140, than on the higher doses (175 and 200). Part of my issues how seductive it is to put on muscle right now. I have weight lifted since 18, which resulted in  a thin tone build. Now I look at a bench and I gain mass.

Just being honest. I also have a little fear of cutting the dose so much, the depression comes back. It is nice to not have so much water weight though!!

Okay, I found that morning erections were slowly fading, erectile strength and libido were down.  So I went back up to 50 mg per injection, i.e. 100 mg/week and I'm back in business!  So, for me, 100 mg in two subQ doses looks like the way to go.  Libido is now through the roof, morning erections are back, etc.  Now I have added ALA and Vit C, but they were returning even before I added the ALA.

I have a gut feeling that EOD injections and/or possibly daily might produce even better results and so I may play with that in a few weeks for months.

Again, you have to experiment to find your sweet spot.  It's gonna be different for all of us...

So it looks like you need a higher peak like in the high 700's then? I know you said at one point 80mg a week put you at 697 peak.

I'll pull some number here in a week or two and see where I am at.  I'm a bit confused myself.

Btw, part of my problem on the 80 was the fact I would sometimes forget to do my injection!  I'm trying to be really disciplined now...

Well that would be your issue right their Peak. Testosterone can't do it's job if you don't have it in your body...

Regulus has a nice explanation as to how to do a 3 day per week (M W F), which he points out is easy to remember, and I split it out here:
