How Much Test?

What would be the least amount of test prop for a cutting cycle? Enough to get the positive effects, without water retention or shutting down natural production with no benefits. I’m thinking about 300 mg a week. (This would be with anti-E’s and a clean diet) Thanks…

Spec, you’ll notice that w/ the shorter esters you won’t hold as much h20 as w/ the longer esters.
It really depends on your stats and how hypocaloric your diet will be before I can suggest a test dose. Btw, will test be the only AAS used whilst dieting? Answer these questions and I can help you.


If your carb intake is low, and you use an aromatase inhibitor, water retention should be minimal with even double that dose
