Hmm… i cant be sure but the suggestion that using T3 will kick start your own thyroid is a little like thinking a cycle of AAS will kickstart your HPTA. It wont, it replaces it is all.
You might want to try T4 as this actually stimulates the production of T3 in the body i believe. but i might be tempted to go to the doctor.
When docs prescribe T3 to patients with slow thyroids to ‘perk’ them up… it isnt for a short course, it is usually for long term replacement.
Is there a reason why your thyroid would be underactive at this point? Drugs, lifestyle, stress? Talk to the doc before you go self medicating for actual medical problems.
As for the cycle - why would you use Adex or Proviron? They are different drugs and not interchangeable.
What other cycles have you done in the past? What cycle patterns have you followed(12on,12off etc…)? What are your goals? BB or PL?
My thought was to use the T3 as a temporary boost while bulking to try to keep the gains lean. I’m getting some more tests done to see what my T3/T4 levels look like. In all honesty I am very hesitant to screw with T3 and probably will not…but it never hurts to get extra info from people who have used it.
I use Proviron for its ability to prevent test from converting to estrogen while also improving the amount of free circulating testosterone. I always prefer to use Proviron over A-dex or anything like it for those reasons, but due to cost its not always possible. Proviron also helps to keep your gains leaner and gives me a harder look.
I tried several cycles with some great success but in the end I decided to just stay on. I feel it is counter productive to come off for 12-16 weeks just to go back on. I do the “blast and cruise” thing. I will run a cycle for 8-16+ weeks then taper down to a TRT dose for an equal amount of time or more depending on my next powerlifting meet. I have friends who have done this for years, some managed to come off without issue, other are on TRT. I had low test before I began cycling and the doc wanted to put me on TRT anyway so I didn’t have much to lose.
