HRT Or...

36 years old (6-1, 195), too much body fat (20%),Started doctor script of 200 mg Test Cyp and 200 Mg Deca both per wk for 10 weeks, with anti-e’s. This is my 1st cycle in 19 years.

Not afraid to gain some quality muscle, but don’t what to explain a 15 pound gain in 10 weeks to my co-workers or family.

I know I can always cut back, but would like to know what kind of results should I expect in that time. Will be on a good diet, dedicated workout schedule. Medium metab.

So, it sounds like your doctor has given you a week cycle and called it HRT. Is that correct?

You won’t have to worry about 15 pounds at those dosages. Unless you decide to do some serious heavy lifting of both weights and your fork.
You have 1/2 the Deca and 1/3 of the Test needed for 15 pounds in 10 weeks with heavy lifting.

Thanks for the response. Glad to hear it. I know it is on the low side for the veteran users out there, but this is my first in a long long time. Sounds like I will be looking at more like 5-7 pounds and a loss of body fat?

I guess. One doc on the web circuit says that 200mg Test cyp will double your Test to 2x the upper “normal” limit. So I assume, with the 200 mg test cyp per week, plus the 200 mg Deca, I will be seeing/feeling something above and beyound a HRT. No complaints.

I would be interested in seeing whether your doctor has a clinic or something in my area. PM me if you like.

Great doctor! Holy shit, that is one hell of an HRT script. I’d probably gain about 10lbs in 3 months on that. At 6ft 1in 10 lbs won’t look like that much. Are you training now? At 195 and 20% bodyfat you will not look huge with fat loss and muscle gain but you will look much better! :slight_smile: I’m glad to hear your getting help. Take it slow if you have not been training .

Just check the websites. I am sure you will find a “clinic” that can meet your needs.

That is what I was thinking, lose 5-10 pounds fat and replace with some muscle. I know there will be a spike with the water weight. Anybody used a diuretic (natural or otherwise) to keep the bloat down. If so, what kind actually works.

I am not the type of guy that turns to holistic medicine, chiros, herbs, but would try a diuretic that works. My goal is not to just fill out the XL shirt (was my goal when much younger).

There are a lot of guys that use that dose for HRT to touch the top of the normal range. Not neccsesarily supraphysiological but high normal.
