I have been on “TRT” for just 4 months- having a test level of low 200’s my doc (who is also a bodybuilder) was awesome providing me 200mg per week of testosterone, HCG andanastrozole to off set any side effects- in 4 months he has had me get 2 additional blood test to check my numbers- fortunately everything is fine and I actually feel awesome for the first time in many years. My recent testosterone level (that use to be low 200’s) came back 5 days after the most recent injection- at 1,500 he thought (and so did I) it was awesome and no sign of any side effects.
Providing me an additional bottle of testosterone C - I thought I might try injecting 400mg per week just to see if I can then put on some muscle- always been strong but kinda lanky defined. with the 200mg per week I have been injecting (his suggestion) 100mg twice a week IM… but adding the additional 200mg per week he suggested I might consider injecting as follows— continue to 100mg @ twice a week IM but also inject 40mg @ the other five days SUBQ so that my legs are not pin cushions.
His thinking is these days injecting smaller amounts daily SUBQ is effective- and that the old school IM larger injections is the industry standard- told me to try both and see how I feel- we’ll do another blood panel of course in a few months- so to make this simple- 200mg (injected 100mg 2 times IM per week) and inject the other 200mg (40mg 5 times a week SUBQ) he will increase the HCH andanastrozole as well- then said we’d do another blood panel and I should stop everything for two week- then go on a PCT of HCG and I think Clomed or something- for 10 days- before starting another cycle.
Curious what you guys might think- again I realize I’m fortunate that my doc is also a bodybuilder- and totally ok with testosterone therapy- and he is doing a lot of blood panel work to stay on top of everything- can I gain more muscle with 400mg per week of testosterone C vs the 200mg per week I’ve been taking ? Has anyone else ever done both the IM injections as well as SUBQ (with insulin needles) at the same time ? Thanks everyone- sincerely appreciate any feedback from you guys-
