Background - I’m 30, 5ft 8in 218lbs probably 12-14% BF (haven’t had it checked in years). Bench 365-385lbs, deadlift 500, squat 465. Played high school football and have been lifting for 15 years. I’ve been on TRT for nearly 7 years (Test Cyp), about 4 of which has been Subq. My natural T flatlined in late 2008 for no discernible reason, NOT from running a cycle. This will actually be my first true cycle, though I’m exceptionally familiar with the endocrine system given my time on TRT and trying to convince 5 endo’s over a 2 year period that I didn’t crash my own T levels via cycling. Anyways…
Everything I’ve read on Tren A suggests anywhere from 300-400 mg/wk for 8 weeks is a good ‘beginner’ cycle. I intend to continue taking my TRT (0.35mL or 70mg E3D) as prescribed and take the Tren ED at 50 mg ED. I understand this isn’t the ideal ratio of Tren/Test, but I don’t see why this would be an issue if I intend for Tren A to be the workhorse of this cycle. I’ve had prolactin/progesterone issues in the past with RPN Havoc so I intend to have some Prami on hand. E2 hasn’t been an issue on my TRT dosage so don’t see a need for anastrazole or letro and Tren doesn’t raise E2 - correct me if I’m wrong.
I’ve read multiple cases of success pinning Tren A subq ED. The key to said success was limiting the injection to .5mL or less (50mg ED = .5mL). This would equate to 350 mg/week which would fall right within the mid range of what I’ve come across as the ‘recommended beginner cycle’ dosing. Advantages of subq are, reportedly, substantially decreased risk of Tren cough, more stable blood levels of Tren (therefore less sides, similar to any exogenous anabolic compound), no scarring (ED IM - idk how you guys do it) and for me - I already have like a billion insulin syringes for my typical TRT usage. Aside from prami while on cycle and perhaps taper off post-cycle, I do not have any PCT in mind given I have no endogenous test levels so to speak.
Please feel free to poke holes in my plan. I won’t be doing this cycle for probably another few months so I have plenty of time to read more and tweak.
