I've been cruising at 250mg/wk and actually kept making gains the first couple of cruises. I just started my 3rd cruise and I've gone down to 200mg/wk. I'm trying to find the point where i don't need to take any ai and still keep test high. so a true trt dosage. i might have to drop it down to 150mg at the lowest but i think i can swing 200 based on bloodwork.
i lifted natural for 13 years so patience isn't a problem. i'm making gains so fast it's better than when i was a newbie. i'm enjoying it and keeping my connective tissue healthy with slow and steady progress. once it stalls i might be tempted to up the dosage but really the last 5-10 years of lifting drug free was so slow i'm not even worried about it.
i'm probably in the minority though not many people who use wait 13 years to do so and keep lifting just for the fun of it while making such slow progress. i'm 6'3" so feel like drugs are almost required to fill out my frame and not have a pathetic look and strength levels. dunno how i waited all those years tbh lol
i've heard pro's say they cruise on 500mg/wk plus lots of hgh and slin just to hold on to all that mass. idk way above my pay grade.
for amateurs i think walkway's advice is spot on. remember the whole point of cruising is to allow your body to return to normal healthy levels. so your cruise dose should be whatever allows you to do that based on bloodwork etc. BW for me was fine on 250mg but i want a break from taking an AI so i'm dropping it a bit.
i want to run dnp at 500mg/wk but it's still so fucking hot out and i'm hot natured anyway. my girlfriend will barely sleep in the same bed as me i give off so much heat and that's without dnp. last winter i was on 500mg and it was like 20 degrees outside. i had the window open and felt great never slept so good. she was wrapped around me like a life preserver to stay warm haha. can't wait for this winter. it's a great feeling walking around in a tshirt when it's freezing out and the heat just gets sucked away but you're still warm inside. not to mention the insane fat loss... and she said it makes me taste sweet so she loved to swallow. did i mention i can't wait for winter? haha
