I'm going to do a six week enanthate 250 cycle shortly, my first injectables. I have done several M1Tcycles in the past, but want to move on. I've heard about kick starting test e, but don't want to use dbol. I still have about 100 5mg M1T caps so I've searched long and hard about stacking M1T & test e. I've found a few OLD threads about this, but have come across differing opinions on how to do it. Most suggest the M1T two weeks before the test, but I have also come across suggestions to use it at the end.

The M1T sides for me have been mild, and the stuff I have is coming close to the end it's shelf-life. I would rather use it than trash it, so if anyone has an opinion, I'd like to hear them....good and bad.

Thanks,

Nunya

6 weeks of enan @250mg ew is not the best choice IMHO, I would use prop instead if I had to run it for that short of a time. And if you use prop, no need to "kickstart" your cycle because prop works quick.

250mg of test e/w is a waste....shutting your levels down for only 250mg e/w is not worth it. You are better off using 500mg e/w for a good 10-12 weeks.

6 weeks is way too short. I'd use the M1T during the first three weeks of the test (concurrently).

Alright, I'll stretch it out, but am going to stick with 250/week as it is my first cycle and want to see how I'll react. Also, I think I'm going to use the M1T between my last shot and PCT.

250mg alone is not worth it bro, you are wasting gear and $$. Well, it's your pocket. Good luck.

I appreciate your input. I'm not locked in yet, and I've heard of people getting good results at that level on their first cycle. I'll let you know how it works out. If I do go with 250/week and don't get results...I will let you know.

I just want to be cautious and not obvious.

I think Built said it best....


You need more than 250 a week because when you go "on", your boys go "off" - they only respond to demand. If you inject your demand, they go to sleep.

Replacement test for you - like, if you were suddenly castrated and needed to have your testosterone supplemented exogenously as HRT - would likely be around 200mg/week (fellas, correct me if I got that part wrong). In order to feel an effect from a cycle, you need to take enough to completely replace your own test, PLUS go over.

So, suppose your boys put out 200mg a week. If you run a 50mg per week test cycle, your boys will drop down to 150mg a week and you'll still only have what you started with: 200mg/week.

If you run 250mg of test a week, you're shutting yourself down for what nets you a 50mg over normal test cycle.

If you're going to bother shutting yourself down, you might as well take enough to make the trouble worth your while.

Make sense?

Point taken...so what would be the equivalent test levels of an average 41 year old male be? I've read that 250 mg/week is about 3X natural production. I'm having a tough time finding anything out on the 'net.

lol I was looking for that before the gym but couldn't find it before I had to go. It's a great way to explain the need for a sufficient amount of test.

I can't answer that, we are all different and there are many factors to consider aside from age. You would have to get some blood work done to see where you are at.

Listen, I'm not saying you won't see any results on 250mg. You will...just not all that much.

But, for the amount of time, money, effort, training, dieting, etc. that you are going to put in, I just don't feel it's worth shutting down @ 250mg. I can't tell you how many guys I know that wish they ran 500 instead of 250 for their first cycle. Best of luck however you run it bro.

Buddy of mine is sixty and takes 150mg per week for high normal. He weighs about 160 lbs.

Whats your stats?

the average test output is actually closer to 75mg weekly. But I understand your point, victor and built.

I read it on isteroids.com. 20 - 30 years old.

Well, my 60 year old buddy on HRT gets tested regularly and he's high normal on double that. 75mg seems kinda low.

Hmmm. That's good to know. Makes me think. I've heard the 75mg from a few different resources but now I wonder.

Many people on HRT especially older people are on higher dose treatment than normal natural test levels.

Remember that you have to take the ester weight into consideration, 250mg of cypionate is not 250mg of testosterone.

Interesting! How much does the ester contribute to the weight?

Also, suspension has no ester, thus no ester is calculated in the weight.
