This phase should be ran in addition to the weekly dose during the cycle.
Blast hcg during the time period you are waiting for the suppressive compounds to leave your system - starting the day after your last injection - up until 4 days before SERM treatment.
Here are four blast phase options - depending on your cycle.
1) 500iu's every day.
2) 750iu's every day.
3) 1,000iu's every other day.
4) 1,500iu's every other day.
Hcg directly stimulate's aromatization in the leydig cells (located in the testis) some people develop Gyno when taking “high” doses of hcg - so keep this in mind when running the blasting phase.
There are 3 reasons to run a blast phase of HCG
1) To test the testicles to see if they are still able to produce
testosterone at their maximum capacity - If they can not produce testosterone at their maximum capacity - you have developed secondary hypogonadism - if this is the case you would be best to get a blood test done - to see if the testicles are producing enough testosterone to get your testosterone levels within physiological range ... If not, hold of on SERM treatment as more hcg is needed - i.e. either a higher dose or for a longer duration.
2) By blasting during this time we are ensuring that our testosterone is within physiological range which is needed from going catabolic - you don’t want to lose the gains “after” the cycle - which happens with many people.
3) To “stimulate” the pituitary - which is needed to provide the material the testes need to produce testosterone.
I pay respect to Michael C. Scally, MD - and a friend who goes by THE-DET-OAK - which is where I've learned much of my hcg information.
Not sure this is a good idea. By blasting, the LH receptors will down regulate (lower the number of receptors). So after the blast the same amount of GnRH will not stimulate the testes as much as before the blast.
Pituitary is not stimulated during HCG administration, it is actually suppressed. Pituitary releases LH, and if its being supplemented (HCG injections), endogenous production will slow or halt.
Ok, I've done several cycles over the last 20 yrs and never used HCG, I just let the boys shrink and come back on there own and never really had a problem. I run the regular AI while on to keep the gyno in check and use proper PCT. I was thinking about giving the HCG a try to keep the boys normal and aid in faster PCT. My question is do you take the HCG injections by them selves and are they IM or sub cutaneous injections. I know everyone says the HCG over the counter stuff sucks so I want to find out more on the good stuff. Any info would help, and yes i tried the search here. You get sent to every post that has the word HCG in it. Thanks brothers
Im or sub q works, sub q is just easier. I do my injects same days as test e days-mon and thur. The OTC shit is bunk, get the real stuff. At first I was intimidated on the mixing, but soon realized a first grader can do it.
yea Ex, the mixing thing kind of makes me hesitate also. Do they give you everything you need and then you just mix it when your ready to use it? And 500iu do you use insulin needles to inject that? Where are you injecting them, IM or sub Q?
i tryed blasting hcg a bunch of times, i always love it but i had some friends tell me that blasting hcg desenitises the nuts from responding tto hcg in the future? how much truth is there to that?
None - unless they have proven studies ... "otherwise it's a theory."
This is why I recommend taking one week off every 5 weeks if you are running it throughout the cycle + blasting - but this is also only to be safe - I have studied from extremely good resources on this topic and from what I've seen it's a theory .. "but I'm always open to see any studies as well."
Blasting is the most important part of the hcg cycle if you had to chose - but I recommend running it throughout the cycle + blast.
I still got atrophy with 500iu 2x weekly. I'm currently in week 8 of a 18wk cycle of Test/EQ. I only have 5000iu of HCG left. I think I'm going to save it for right before PCT.
Yep, had the same thing they would go back down between pins. So all that I did to fix this was to go 500 MWF, and ever since everything has been good. My goal it to also have a faster recover with a good PCT.
