    Agreed!

    Being 41, I am on TRT, not going to say I don't like it cause I do, BUT, if I could go back to 24 years of age, without a doubt I would not want to be pinning myself at least twice a week every week for the rest of my life! Not to mention, your natty test will be doing so much more for you!

    blast and cruise later when the natural T levels have dropped. Just my advice.
    I have been thinking about the cruise, 47 now and on TRT which is a gel that doesn't do much for me. I was doing 125mg test E on top of my gel when I had my levels last checked and was at 750. Having my levels checked again this week after being off cycle and just on the gel for a month. I am curious to see how low it is, I am definitely tired more and loosing lean muscle and gaining bf fast.

    I have done 2 cycles and start my next in November but if my levels are low I am going to just restart the 125mg a week and cruise between cycles because I felt great on it and it is probably keeps my levels where they should be anyways.

    At this point it is a lifelong thing I guess; I have had my kids and snipped the jewels when that was done so no worries there. I want to keep up my energy, sex drive and lean muscle.

I know that when you just cruise you keep more of your gains than you would if you ran a proper PCT, but I have also heard that your receptors will not clear properly if you cruise. Any truth to this? Not looking to get flamed for this guys. What do you think?
    At 24 you would be crazy to cruise. I do, but I am twice your age! Your body produces enough naturaly. Good PCT and you keep gains! My 2 cents!

    I wouldnt say its crazy. There are a lot of guys that do it. Its a lifelong decision. As of now im PCT'ing and waiting for my next cycle. Im going to continue to ponder it though with each successive cycle but will always have the stuff do run a proper PCT with

    Maybe Crazy is a strong word, your right it a choice you have to make, and it is a commentment that will last. For me I cruise, but I have low T so while I am cruising my levels are where a 24 year old is. So not sure where the benifits are except you can do more cycles

    benefits would be that I can retain gains much easier and you dont have to deal with the mind games of being "off". Disadvantages have been discussed. Ill post again on this thread if I ever decide to cruise.

    I had not considered cruzin till I read this thread. Lots of great info and opinions thanks all. Now that I am over 50 maybe it is something that would work out for me.

    Go get bloodwork done and see where your levels are. If they are low enough you may just get it prescribed by your doc

    I am interested to see what my blood levels are, I have been just on the gel for the last 30 days. I had it tested today.

    To me a cruise is be basically keeping my levels in the high normal range, that's all 125mg a week would do. The gel just doesn't do enough for me but this doc isn't prescribing the injectable

    Some have mentioned they cruise at 250mg a week which is probably higher than I want to go. I keep my gains at 125mg a week and it keeps my test level at 750, well I still use the gel too. Can't let it go to waste lol.

    There are risks I guess to both sides..... you could cruise with hcg therapy but that also might cause a permamnent shut down of the LH...... the chain has to be cut somewhere.

    I am wondering if there is a form wehre you cycle on and off without totally going off and use a form of pct while taking the lower dosages.

    PCT while taking any dosages will not do anything because you will still be shut down

    not if you are taking hcg....

    the idea I was throwing out was if you go with a lower dosage, would a pct assist in preventing too much estrogen imbalance from happening so you dont get the issues associated while the hcg maintains testicular size, so it becomes more of an estrogen issue, doesnt it? (just asking).

    some people use a blast and cruise wehre they never really ever go off but alternate high and low cycles
