How Much to Blast on If I Cruise on 380mg a Week?


#1

I need advice. I have been cruising (TRT) on 380 mg of T (200mg every 4 days). I have severe hypogonadism so I need a high dose of 380mg to get to a total T of 800. I’m researching on a 12 weeks bulking cycle (blast) and I want to know how much to increase my T intake.

I’m 5’9’’. 31. 210 pounds. 14 bf. Gym 5-6 days a week. 2 hrs weights and 15 mins cardio. Gym since 25. Labs within normal range without AI.

In addition to T, I will be taking Dbol for 5 weeks. 30mg ed, then 40mg, then back to 30mg. Will take .5 AI eod during cycle.

Edit: I’m glad I’m getting replies but I seem to confuse some people. My total T is 800s. How much total T should I been at when on bulk? Without Dbol? With Dbol?

You’re already blasting. So why not just move it up to 500 and then eventually cruise at an actual cruise dose?


#3

He has lab work showing high normal T with those doses in another thread. I was blown away. I think OP stated that it is pharma grade too.


#4

My total T levels now is 800s on 380 mg a week.
My previous experience on TRT:
200mg a wk brings it to 400s
300mg brought it to 600

500mg will probably brings it to 1000s

Will total T of 1000s be enough to bulk?

My body metabolize test quickly. And yes, they are pharma grade


#5

What day did you have labs drawn after your last shot?


#6

How is this possible?

Im asking as a serious question? If anyone could help me understand I’d appreciate it


#7

4 days after.
I inject e4d. I had labs taken on the morning before I inject.


#8

What is your exact protocol. Mine 100mgs every 3.5 days of Test C. That puts me in high 800’s


#9

Everyone is different. Some people only need 200mg to get to that level. I need 380mg. I joke that it must have something to do with serving in the Marines.


#10

200mg every 4 days of Test C.


#11

I understand that I agree with you 100% I always tell people that when they complain about numbers not matching up perfectly to “what I should be” so we’re on the same page.

Thats just realllly drastic as far as a difference goes. I can’t help but wonder what else might be going on.

As I said im not doubting anything your saying I’m just trying to figure out what exactly is different that causes such low levels on a dose like that


#12

There’s nothing else going on. I’ve never taken steroids until Jan 2017. When I did started, it was from a TRT. Started low, now high. Closely monitored with labs. I have a severe hypogonadism and my body doesn’t response well to test. TRT made a few bucks from me because it’s private and they don’t take insurance. I’ve learned a lot and am ready to go on my own. Plus, my TRT will fire me anyway once he learns what I’m planning to do.

Anyway, what should my total T be at when bulking? If I know the numbers I can adjust. I work at a clinic so I can monitor it with labs.


#13

Holy shit. Comment withdrawn.

Maybe don’t use a lot of test for a blast then? Perhaps other compounds might be better given that information. Maybe EQ or nandrolone will be more efficient.


#14

Well I’m on 750mg/week and my total T is almost 5000. And I’m bulking up very well. I’d imagine you’d need a monster dose to reach those levels. I’m sure you could bulk on less

Heres another thing total T matters but what really matters is free T.

But as iron said maybe find another AAS to bulk. In order to get your T in the thousands your gonna need a gram+ Id imagine and at that point the sides might not be worth it.

Only one way to find out tho!


#16

My research said my first should only restrict to one compound plus T. What other stack do you recommend?


#17

So why arent you goigng the VA? The VA ships all my shit right to the door.


#18

Zeek,

What did you stack with 750mg of T?


#19

I think you could ignore your Total T and focus more on your FT since that’s what matters anyway. There’s no magic number you reach to hit a ‘bulking’ zone…just have a decent amount of FT available, train enough give the muscles the stimulus they need to grow, feed them and rest. That’s it.


#20

One new compound at a time is recommended, yes. But since you’re already on test you can make another new addition. EQ is probably a safer bet than nandrolone. The dbol is fine and you can add it mid cycle or near the end, that way you’ll get a feel for the EQ and be able to get to use the dbol.


#21

The VA doesn’t hand out steroids. I work in the VA. Unless I got balls cancer, the VA wouldn’t give out T. I’m not service connected for hypogonadism. Funny thing is that my service connection is what’s paying for my T.
