    Who uses an AI the entire cycle ?

    Do you use AI throughout cycle or only if you get signs of Gyno etc?

    Curious after reading

    [B]'Alright guys,
    came on here for all my gear research, and everyone does the general cookie cutter principles of using AI's, HCG throughout etc etc....without knowing if they even need it!

    PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR OWN BODY!


    IF your feeling good on just test enanthate , your not puffing out like a retard, no signs of gyno or anything then please dont bother taking arimidex !

    Keep things SIMPLE. I have spoken to numerous pros, people just read a sample cycle online and think its gospel.

    im mid way through my test cycle and haven't had the need to use an AI, and I would have done had i not use my brain.

    experiment on yourself, and add in only what you NEED to.

    Everyone should use an AI even on trt. Throuout the cycle leading up to pct. Estrogen can cause a slew of problems before it gives you gyno and it might never even give you gyno. Fat, water, and counterproductiveness are some of the first sides you will experience.

    .25 mg eod. Its not an opinion. Been there done this both ways.

    Also, the numerous pros are bro scientists. We use medical journals and 20 years of combined experience from guys that have done tis 40+ years.

    I would love to see the bloods from a guy after a 12 wk cycle at 500mg, that doesn't have elevated estrogen, without the use of AI.
    If its not elevated, their gear is bunk. Yes everyone is different but not that different. If the test is doing its job, you will acquire elevated e2 without AI. If you are immune to the effects of estrogen then you are immune to the effects of testosterone and need a new hobby.

    No disrespect intended at all.

    None taken man. Massively appreciated.

    Always good to be sure and ask, especially when someone who has done both tells you

    This question is asked often and has been argued a lot. No harm in asking anything or questioning anything.

    It has evolved though. Back in the day pct was unheard of, hcg as well, AI as well.

    I got to prove it to myself though.

    `thanks bro

    What about hCG

    From Week 1 onwards or week 8 - 12

    I have seen multiple contradicting posts, what does the SCIENCE say?

    Now Austinite says 'Week 1 - 12' and that poster is extremely knowledgable. But just curious ?

    How do you know you don't need an AI without bloodwork????
    Because you feel good?? Seriously??

    No matter if you have gyno issues you will have water retention, water retention causes pressure on the heart making it work harder which could lead to an enlarged heart which is very common in bb'rs along with BP issues. Always run a low dose ai.

    You would be foolish to not take an AI while on cycle.

    Im not the most knowledgeable by any means, by like Obs said, back in the day there was no such things as ai's and pct and if you do sone research and talk to a few guy that were in the realm back then, they will tell you about the effects they had to deal with.

    Here is a simple marker- if it wasnt necessary and/or prudent, would they use them even when under a docs care for trt?

    Hcg is mandatory to prevent testicular atrophy, for the duration of the cycle up to pct. 500 iu of hcg dosed twice per week @ 250mg will help recovery as well as atrophy prevention.

    Hcg mimics lh function so your boys stay on during cycle. There are youtube personalities such as Dylan Gimelli who propose a short term use of hcg. They propose that your Leydig cells can become less sensitive to hcg and that it can have a slew of negative side effects.
    All this info is based off a study in rats where the test subjects were administered an equivalent human dosage of 7500iu at once. Even in these extreme doses, the desensitization was only temporary and returned to normal in 14 days.

    The question you must ask yourself is:
    Would you rather have your testicular function shut down for a cycle or half a cycle or would you rather testicular fuction resumed normal till the end of cycle when you will be administering pct?

    I cycle heavy. I have shrunken testicles because I ran ridiculous doses too long and I dosed hcg at once per week instead of twice. I no longer dose hcg for once a week and I dose it at 750-1000iu per week instead of the standard 500iu protocol. The desensitization does indeed happen at high dosages but not at my dosages.

    Thank you. I am just sticking to your protocol now other than starting Test at 250 and building up to 500 dependant on sides over 6 weeks.

    I would think the issue should be answered with - do you really wanna take a chance with your nuts? I mean some youtube sensation might, but nothing good ever comes from listening to a youtube sensation

    I use a small dose of an AI through my entire cycle to avoid any unwanted problems.
