A friend did this with good results, but a very low dose. The danger with the thyroid hormones is that they increase oxidation of both fat and muscle, so at high doses the catabolism increases beyond what you’d want.
This has came up because i was searching for reasons why my calves constantly cramp up after training sessions.
I tick off some of the symptoms of an under active thyroid:
no motivation etc
At low Doses + lots of BCAA and a well dialed in diet, I assume id still be able to increase strength?
I think id rather maintain my current tiredness etc if taking T3 would effectivily dissolve my strength…[/quote]
Not at low doses. At low doses, IF you have low output, it will simply normalize your levels and normalize your metabolism. Taken on top of already normal levels and in doses of say 150 to 200 mcg, the chance increases of adverse ffects. Bottom line- use with caution if not under medical supervision.
