I had two labs done and my first one was 237 and a second one, two months later was 136. I’m self administrating “TRT” with 250mg once a week of Enanthate and I’m taking .25 of Amiridex every three days. (EDIT: 3 months after my start of “TRT”, I had another lab done and my test was 989. So I figure I’m there now.)
I’m a large fella and I do have quite a bit of fat on my torso. I’ve been reading this forum and several others where big fellas (read that as fat) have bumped up their “TRT” dosages up to 500mg per week (or split 250) and noticed an increase in fat loss.
What’s your opinion on this?
I’m not looking for a goal weight, but a goal body fat percentage. I’d like to get to 15-20% range. I’m not looking to body build shred and since I’m no longer powerlifting, I want to just cut the fat off and be healthier. The added benefit of strength is great and the help of a CPAP and testosterone, I feel I’m over my depression and no longer feel tired all day and lethargic.
I had all these symptoms and I don’t feel low T was the entire cause. As noted, I have sleep apnea and that really messed my life up. So, the combination of CPAP and “TRT” helped out together. I was on “TRT” before my CPAP and still experienced some of the symptoms. My brain fog and others went away a little and once I got my CPAP, it’s been great. Now it may or may not work for all, but it worked for myself.
So back to the topic (derail my own post?). I have a wife and two kids, no chance of ever having kids again. No plan to at least. I careless for shrunken testies, I’m the only one that plays with them anymore and I haven’t noticed any shrinkage. So that’s why I’ve been “cruising” on 250mg once a week. I figured if bumping up to 500mg once a week would help with fat loss, I’d do it and wouldn’t have an issue. I figure I’d need to possibly up my Amiridex to .5 maybe. and after 10 weeks, I’ll go back to my “TRT” dosing of 250mg once a week. No PCT since I’m on test for the rest of my life. Maybe stay like that for 10 weeks or so and “blast” another 10 weeks at 500mg.
