    T3 on a bulker?

    Anyone here run T3 on a bulker?

    Only talking a low dose, 25 or 50mcg (max) per day - which would you suggest?

    Worthwhile addition to a cycle when trying to keep all gain lean?

    Depends what you are taking, I take 25mcg/day with Tren because it lowers thyroid function causing the production of prolactin/progresterone. Otherwise, No it would not think this would benefit you. You did say Bulk right?

    Prop/Tren /WInny bulker, Was going to include the T3 for increased protein turnover and minimise any fat gains?

    When taking tren , Yes I would recommend 25-50mcg/day. 25 seems to work fine for me.

    To help keep the gains leaner then you will need to eat clean......... but on a high calorie diet with high amounts of protein cytomel will help in protein synthesis at around 25mcg per day.

    I have searched with no luck. Why is this important to you?

    No real reason, Just curious, someone told me not to bother with 25mcg per day as i will only be replacing what i produce normally? Didn't sound right to be, thought natural production would be less than that

    I have seen where 25mcg's has been stated as a level of T3 production for a healthy person.

    So would it be a waste to take 25mcg/day, should it be upped?

    Is there any proof that using cytomel actually shuts down all natural production of T3? I don't know enough to answer this so maybe Hooker or someone that has a lot of knowlege in the thyroid could answer this.

    But if it doesn't shut it down completely then IMO 25mcg would be a good starting point for what this guy wants to do.

    I believe the body produces 8-9 mcg ED naturally

    I have used 50ug T3 on 'bulking' courses with great success before, I think it is a worthwhile addition.

    I think 25ug is too low.

    Well, considering not everyone produces the same amount (same as not everyone produces the same amount of test)... it's pretty hard to say.
    My guess that an avg. amount would be somewhere around ~20mcg/day.
    An exog. admin. or 25mcg would probably hinder the thyroid's production, but not totally shut it down.
