    Shouldn't you base that decision on bloodwork?

    I would use the average male natty test production as a starting point. There will be a variation with age ranges but standard average is that we produce anywhere between 7-11mg of test ED. This puts weekly production between 49-77mg. Doubling the weekly production would be a starting point such as 100-150mg EW and then a bit more. This is just my train of thought and I don't believe there is a right/wrong answer per se as 100mg EW might shut you down but it could take 200mg EW to shut down "Joe Snuffy." It seems to me that a common trt dose aka "cruising" dose it to a double dose of our natural weekly production. A lot of bros on trt claim to be prescribed 200-250mg EW but I've seen more as well as less contingent upon their own individual free test/total test, etc.

    For cruising, it seems 250-300mg is done by a vast majority of "cruisers." But you'll still be shut down most likely; that is, unless you're jacking hcg alongside it.

    There's your "elite" insight DLats with a little bit of "Bro Science" sprinkled in...

    I like it! Haha. I usually cruise around 300mg for whatever its worth. I'll cruise with Cyp or Enan, both of which are 250mg per CC and i'll aim for 1.2/1.3cc every 7 days.

    You the man Bigbird! Thats what im looking for. Id live to get blood work done all tge time but its just not possible for me. So in your opinion at 300mg a week i would maintain my gains, and at some point achieve full recovery? Im not to worried about full recovery because i know ive done the damage already its just a matter of going through the motions of being perscribed trt. I will try the 300 mg a week and see how it goes.
    What do you guys think of splitting the 300mg of test enth 250 into twice a week injections?

    I like 300-500mg T weekly on a cruise but if you are new to cruising 300ish mg T per week should work very well.

    IMO, 300mg will be plenty enough. Like I said, thats where I cruise and I have never had a problem with keeping gains... I feel like I actually make some! You can split the test two 2 shots per week, it will be better for your blood levels. However, once per week will work just fine. I just feel like thats a lot of pinning for just 300mg.

    Well like Heavy said, if you're new to blasting and cruising I would start with 300mg and see how your body reacts.

    Yeah, I agree that 300mg should be enough to maintain and possibly even continue to build provided training intensity is near the top with proper diet/hydration, etc. I"ve never cruised before but when I do, I'd use 300mg EW as my own self-prescribed trt. Would I like to cruise on a "HEAVYIron" dose of 500mg EW? You bet your ass but I'd first be curious as to how good I can maintain my previous gains and even gain more albeit at a slower rate using 300mg EW before considering 500mg. Can't say if you'll fully recover DLats. The only way to know for sure would be bloodwork before and after cruise and then consideration of PCT followed by more bloodwork perhaps? However, if you choose to bypass PCT and stay in "cruise control" then the issue of recovery becomes a moot point that you wouldn't have to deal with for now. But eventually the future will arrive, eh bro? lol

    My thought is that when I do end up cruising, to pin once a week with Cyp or E as opposed to 2x weekly pinning while blasting. Not sure. What is the common pinning frequency on long esters during the cruise phase? Better yet, maybe cruise on a super long ester such as Undecanoate - pinning every 10 days or so? Just some food for thought...

    I read an article in an older MD about undecanoate. Wouldnt that be sweet! But i think the injections are 4ml per shot which could bite a little lol! If i could find it i think id give it a try.

    Just my $.02.....
    My TRT dose IS 300mg per week. That puts my T levels in the high 1150 range. Now when I started TRT almost 2 years ago, I had the test levels of an 8 year old girl.
    You should keep your gains at that dose and may even continue to gain.
    Heavy and Bigbird are the experts, so I would follow their suggestions.

    Test levels of an 8 yr old girl? Sorry to hear that bro. Glad your trt is working out for you.

    Besides that, thanks for lumping me in the same "Expert" category as Heavy. That's a high n mighty qualification and I don't think I'm quite there yet but I may be on my way, lol. I consider myself an "All around" - that is, my depth of knowledge is pretty good all around but I'm not an expert in any one particular category, if this makes any sense.

    How long you guys cruise before you blast? Also how long do you guys cruise/blast before considering PCT? I'm 5'6ish 183 and wanna hit 200 by dec or jan so I have been thing about cruising so I dont lose any gain from the cycle im on now.
    Bodybuilding is about learning to maximally contract a muscle. It is not about lifting weight. The best bodybuilders in the world are that way because they can contract their muscle harder than you, NOT because they lift more.

    Either way works fine. Right now I'm pinning twice weekly but once a week works as well.

    You really need to think about recovery if you're not going to stay on for life.

    The longer you stay on the longer it's going to take to recover (for the most part).

    I guess what I'm trying to say is THINK about it before actually doing it. If you're done having kids then by all means fire away but if not you could run into serious issues later down the road. How old are you anyhow?

    I'm more conservative but hey my nuts still do part time labor. I use to cruise on 200 mg/w and that would put me at 1300 ng/dL, which is a little over the top of normal range. Depends on a number of things though. After the cruise I would jump up to no more than 1 gram total AAS and still get good response. I never got to the point where I felt I needed 500 mg/w to hold gains. Then again I'm not that big.

    I have been cruising on 300mg a week now for about 6 weeks. Test levels a little high when I got blood work back 1025, by estradiol was at 12 so I was happy about that! I think no more than 400mg a week and then once on cycle would bump to 700mg to 800mg
