HCG Dosing Question

Hey guys. I am currently on the following TRT regimen:

Test Cypionate 200mg IM q weekly

Anastrazole 0.5 mg on T shot day

HCG 500 IU SQ on the last 2 days of the week before T shot day

My question is: Would it make sense to instead use HCG 100 IU 5 days per week and then increase to 250 IU on the last 2 days before T shot day?

I recently read a book by Dr John Crisler (may he rest in peace), in which he says that using HCG 100 IU daily would more closely approximate the natural daily release of LH from the pituatary. This would then keep the testes producing T on a daily basis while on TRT (I think).

The way it is prescribed for me (and most guys on T it seems) the goal is to cause a surge in natural T production on the two days before the T shot by having two relatively large doses of HCG on those two days.

It seems to me that using HCG 100 IU 5 days per week and then increasing to 250 IU on the two days before T shot day (assuming that you only take one T shot per week), would be the best of both worlds.

Any insight into this idea will be greatly appreciated!
