T3 Results & 2 Week on 2-4 Week Off Recovery?

I have searched and read up all I can on T3 from archives of a few sites, but there really is very little information out there, and many contradictions in advice. I’d really like if people who have used it for short cycles could share their results. I’d also like to hear opinions about 2 weeks on 2 weeks off protocol. It hasn’t ever been suggested, but I think it makes sense. What I do is 2 weeks dieting, and the next 2 weeks with T3 while dieting, then bulk for 2 weeks to try to get the metabolism back up, and repeat. Does this make sense to others? Will a short 2 week cycle of T3 (tapering up and down 50mcg) not impair endogenous levels much? Will it recover enough after 2 weeks bulking that I can start the next 2 weeks dieting with a high enough metabolism to lose fat, followed by the slight drop in my metabolism made up for by the 2 week T3 cycle? This 6 week macrocycle is only for my use while dieting, I should mention. Any opinions appreciated, cheers. (PS this is all done in conjunction with AAS)

can. arms, t-3 is good stuff…my personal experience was a good one as opposed to clenbuterol…I ran it for 6 weeks leading up to a show in conjunction w/ anavar 30mg/d and boldenone 400mg/wk…my dose for the t-3 was pretty low imo, only 25mcg…the next experiment I had w/ it was during a 3 weeker of anadrol/winstrol, and it was ran at 50mcg/d. Cals were very high (~5500) and zero fat was put on…I don’t think suppression should be too big of a concern provided your dose/duration is reasonable…If it were me, I’d run it for the 4wks of dieting, and possibly all 6.
