    Blood Work - 6 Weeks Deep

    So I haven't got the entire chart yet because I totally forgot to go to the clinic for them. I just called in and got the two levels I was the most curious about and the results were: Test levels came back at 1248 ng/dl and my E2 levels were 19. About 6 weeks in with my 500 mg test e /week cycle my levels have just about doubled. Do my test levels seem to be where they should be at this point. I started the cycle at 191 pounds @ 9.8% BF and I got all the way up to 211 pounds @ 8.6% BF before dropping pounds due to contracting strep.. Still fighting it off. But anyway, what are everyones thoughts on this? Thanks for the constructive input!

    I have to say someone did you a favor selling you very under-dosed gear so maybe you wont screw yourself up so bad since you are only 18.

    Underdosed. 1248 translates to 1/5 strength ... someone needs kicked in the crotch and their lunch money taken.

    From the looks of things you are probably pretty close to the truth when you say lunch money as in high school

    Looks like all the progress you've made in these last 6 weeks were attainable naturally being just a hair over the normal range.
    Placebo effect is strong in that bunk gear, don't slack off now that you know it was crap.
    Take pride in knowing it was you and your work ethic - not the gear.

    Well I feel like this throws the entire thing out of whack. My log I feel is now pretty much irrelevant. Pretty much a natty summer transformation log... And now what do I do about my PCT? Am I even shut down at levels this low? I feel that the standard PCT might be a little overkill. A lot of people my age sit pretty close to this naturally all the time so how would my endo react to levels like this? I have no testicular atrophy...

    I have been using MuscleRx.. He is currently out of the game due to a family crisis so I can't even contact him. Pretty peeved about this. I feel like I have no basis of knowledge on how my body would react to accurately dosed gear.

    An example for you Dee. My current TRT regimen of 70mg x 2 per week keeps me between 1400 to slightly over 1500 depending on when I test.
    Regarding pct, yes you still need it as shut down is shut down regardless where your level falls.

    So with my test levels barely raised above normal... I don't understand how I managed to put on this much weight and increase my max bench to 275.. I don't even do flat bench... Could 600 added onto my normal levels really make that much of a difference?

    It's twice as much as before, plus no doubt you've emphasized your nutrition and training during this period as well.

    if this is what happens with roughly 100 mg of test a week, what the hell would happen with accurately dosed 500 mg a week? Lol

    You'd probably be around 4K ng/dl.

    Even if you were in your last semester of graduate school you are still only 18.

    I've read that sticky probably 20+ times through. I was just stating that I was in my 2nd year of college because I felt my intellect was being challenged/belittled.

    Sorry, no I was not trying to challenge your intellect. The jury is still out on that one. It depends on what you decide to do with the information that has been given to you.

    definitely! I guess we will see how this finishes. Plan on sticking around here for the long haul so you'll know how this all plays out!
