    T3 question

    Ok guys i did my research on sups and things on T3 but theres alot of different opinions out there! heres my questions:
    Im currently running ( currently in week 8) Was going to do the T3 just weeks 9-15
    Eq 400mg weeks 1-13
    Test prop 100mg edweeks 1-16
    Fina 75mg ed weeks 6- 15

    1)Does this dose sound right?

    200mcg t3 weeks 1-5
    100mcg week 6
    50mg week 7?

    2) How much muscle and fat you think i should loose.

    3) any special tips beside doing my temp in the mourning (also whats the level it should be between)

    4) How dangerous is it realy? i keep seeing people saying they would never try it!

    I think you should ramp down a little lower then 50mcg personally. I use T-3 quite often and really like it. I don't consider it to be one of the more dangerous drugs in BB but it should be respected. I have never noticed a loss in muscle mass while on cycle and hard to say on the fat loss but it is usually good for a couple of %'s down.

    Jackman..that cycle was designed for DP...The correct dosing will be determined by your resting temp. But as a guidline i recommend 1mcg per lb of body weight for the max...and .5mcg per lb for the minimum...after all your body produces close to 75mcg a day naturally. But you have the cycle correct. Muscle waisting is unlikely given the AAS your taking, but keeping your RT under 99.0 deg will prevent this too. the range for optimal metabolic rate is between 97.6 - 98.2....you can certainly go a little higher, i usually get around 98.6. Watching for any sudden drops in temp of 1.0 deg or more is a hard sign to stop!...this is unlikely when doing the 7/5 split. It's been my experience that people doing long t3 cycle have a lower metabolic rate than the average person after just 2 weeks, so this is acting as an inhibitor rather than a stimulater of fat loss. The only dangers associated with taking t3 is not monitoring your RT, when monitoring your RT you can see exactly what's going on in corrolation with the t3, or clen , or ECA, or even AAS.

    Clen can be used along with t3, but not on the off days...clen is an antagonist to your thyroid function, we don't need anything inhibiting our recovery time.

    Sorry Jackman I mis read your thread...it's days not weeks!

    day 1-5 max
    day 6 half of max
    day 7 half of day 6

    5 days off then repeat...

    for example:

    day 1-5 200mcg
    day 6 100mcg
    day 7 50mcg

    5 days off then repeat...

    You can cycle t3 alot longer with the 7/5 split...as long as your RT doesn't fall more than.5 deg from one day to the next.

    A good digital thermometer is about 10.00...the two best products for pct's are Coleus forskolii and T-100X (glandulars) these are a must IMO...the both of them will run you about 30.00-40.00 for a month supply...they are both OTC. If you have trouble locating them let me know, i'll give you the manufacturers websites to locate a store! Als a good multiple Vit and MIN that's high in selenium (200mcg), chromium (200mcg), zinc (50mg), iodine (75mcg),and finally the amino acid tyrosine, which your probably getting enough in your diet anyway!

    I would run the Coleus forskolii throughout...this will even enhance the effects of t3 and help to regulate normal thyroid function. Add the t-100X the day you stop taking t3 all together...not necessary during the bridge (5 days off) Take 1 cap of Coleus (250mg @4%) which works out to be about 10mgs twice daily...you may find caps that are (100mgs @10%) so it's still 10mgs. Same with the t-100X 2 tabs (630mgs) twice daily...post cycle should last 1 month, but it really depends on your RT when your temp returns to normal without any fluctuations of .3 deg from one day to the next your set! This is usually less than 2 weeks for your thyroid function to recover fully!

    NONE if you do proper Pct's...fat gain comes when people run t3 for extended periods of time, shutting down their endogeous production and then do nothing to help in recovering their function...long periods of tapering doesn't work at recovering your thyroid function, a dose of 25 mcg can keep your endogeous production at a stand still, so instead of spending 2-3 weeks tapering your better off stopping and using supplements that support thyroid function...those long cycles cause rebounds...it's a long road to recovery if your RT has dropped to 94.0 deg after all hypothyroidism is diagnosed below 96.0...it should be diagnosed at 96.8 or even 97.0 the american board of endocrinologist are making adjustments to the range for diagnosing hypo and hyper thyroidism.

    I dropped eight pounds after 2 succession of the 7/5 split...DP lost I think 5-10lbs first week. As far as measurements my GF has shaved about 3" off her waist in under a month taking t3 (140mcg), clen (60mcg), and she just started nolva (20mgs) a day...she had to stop the clen after 4 days it was to much for her to handle, it was doing more harm than good...she shakes alot as it is!, but were getting that under control now as well.

    No muscle loss with myself or GF...can't speak for DP though, but it's not likely since he's running a good array of AAS. You do not have to change your diet for t3 to be effective...but doing cardio is a definate plus. I even encourage a small consumption of carbs before doing cardio to add to the thermogenic response...Remember fats are burned in the flame of carbohydrates. I think you will be happy with the results! BTW...muscle catabolism usually doesn't occur until your temp gets in the 99.0's. Don't forget my GF was doing 140mcg a day of t3 without any gear, she ways 142lbs, so 1mcg per lb and lost no muscle...she has actually gained some LBM in the meantime. We have taken her body measurements before starting and at the end of each 7 day run, and she's lost inches around the waist and thighs, and yet increased in the arms and chest measurement. Her strength is staying as well.
