I am 23, I’m on TRT (TT levels at about 350 BEFORE testosterone injections). I am injecting myself in my thigh. My prescribed dose is 100mg/week. I was on TRT about a year ago and then realized I had a hyperthyroidism so I was taken off the test temporarily. I had refilled a prescription of test and had a bunch of 200mg vials from that refill that were never used. I am 6’4’’ 210 lbs, not sure what my body fat is but it’s fairly low ( I can see abs but I’ve still got a little bit of a spare tire). I’ve been lifting seriously since I was 17ish years old. My diet is great. I eat all clean foods, no junk food. All whole grains, lean protein, etc. I aim for about 300-350g of protein per day, and cut the carbs out later in the day.
Basically I have enough testosterone cypionate to do an 8 week (I could MAYBE stretch it out to 10 weeks if I can find a 10 ML vial for my next refill) 300mg/week cycle. I realize ideally I would do 500mg/week for 12 weeks, but I don’t have a source so I’m working with what I’ve got. As far as PCT I’m going to do the test taper method. My endo will readily prescribe me anastrozole (spelling? the generic arimidex) and/or clomid if necessary. I was already on clomid for about 2 months before he put me on test.
I’m injecting 200mg every 4-5 days, which is basically the equivalent of 300mg/week. Just looking for your thoughts. What should I notice and when should I start noticing things. I’ve been on 100mg/week for 3 weeks and my energy/mood is way up, and I just did my first injection for my cycle yesterday.
Basically its going to look like this.
Weeks 1-3 - 100mg/wk
Weeks 4-12 - 300mg/wk
Weeks 13-til my doc takes me off TRT - 100mg/wk.
PCT - Taper
Ancillary - Prescription as needed
Again, just looking for input and what I should expect. I’m looking to gain 5-10 lbs of muscle or so.
