    Very broad question, Mr. Doom but the simple answer is Yes.

    Again, question is too broad. Depends on your goals. But generally, it's a good idea to take T3 on a bulk.

    Why say so? I know is too board. I just want to research and collect some info from the others before i do my cycle.
    Take the advice from Marcus, train hard and learn more first.
    Please just tell me your experience or why it's a good idea. Thank

    Well I don't bulk anymore. But when I did, it helped keep my BF % steady. Otherwise it typically shoots up. Especially if you're not minding your macronutrients. It won't cause any muscle loss with enough AAS in your system, however, some folks look for an overall number with their bulking cycle, lean and fat.

    Thanks for sharing austinite. Now I'm try to learn more about nutrition/diet. It's so hard but at the same time it's fun and the most important part for building muscle/ lose fat right.

    I hold the opposite view, and correct me if I'm misinterpreting you Austin.

    In my experience, T3 simply isn't potent enough to solely offset the fat gain (even minutely) of a bulking diet that DOESN'T restrict macronutrients (like old school off-season bulking). Don't misunderstand me it's a great synthetic hormone, but its street rep isn't wholly indicative of its actual effects, nor do its effects turn the metabolic rate up high enough to negate overt dietary negligence, hence its expressed usage during cutting. Conversely, during a clean bulking cycle, i.e., one that is cognizant of macros and overall caloric intake en route to lean muscle increase, I do see slight implications for its usage. However, it still seems wasteful as genuine Cytomel is not cheap, and is best administered as a finishing compound.

    Well, I don't disagree with you. But the scenarios we could discuss with T3 (or any compound) are countless. When I'm used to bulk, I typically included a great deal of cardio. With T3, I don't have to run as much to reach satisfactory levels. I don't doubt that it helps, but you raise some very good points. It's certainly not the 'ideal' compound to use, there are better options. I had tunnel vision considering the thread title. A

    It certainly works. But honestly like anything else, most users are disappointed because they don't help the compound reach it's max potential, with diet/cardio etc... A poor diet as you mentioned (especially while bulking) can d more damage than good, but I should have been more clear that "not minding my macros" doesn't mean gorging into the worst foods. I've always counted calories, and when I didn't break down macros, I still managed to keep a worthwhile diet. I'm sure you've done it before, bulked up, ate like a horse and eyeballed your macros. After so many years it's not that hard. But if someone eats garbage all day everyday... nothing will help.

    Either way, no more bulking for me!

    Can I ask what are your fitness goals now? I only wonder because I have an "ideal" in my head but I wonder when I hit that ideal if I'm going to want more either leaner or bigger or both?
