    Low Dose Test for body recomp?

    Does anybody out there think a low dose test cycle could be beneficial for a body recomp. Say 100-150 Mg a week. I know that most what say why shut down for such a low dose. But what if someone wasn’t trying to gain a ton of weight or make gnarly gains in the weight room. Was having this discussion with a friend and wanted to see what the consensus on this forum is?

    It depends on what your current levels are. If you're deficient in Testosterone then 150 mg/ week would probably have some benefit in terms of body composition, but if you're already in normal to normal-high ranges then it would have no effect whatsoever.

    I forget the conversion but a healthy male produces the equivalent of about 250mg's of Testosterone per week anyway so injecting less than that would be pointless.

    IMO you should get blood work done, find out what your levels are, and based on that you could look into TRT... If your finances are tight then you can do TRT on your own but I would still get blood work done.

    you are way off.
    A normal person produces about 60-80mgs of test per week.
    A normal TRT dose is thus 80-100mg per week of test C which yields about 60-80mg of pure test.

    It would help slightly in your recomp but totally would be not worth worth the risks of shutting yourself down.

    I stand corrected.

    So disregard those numbers then I'm not sure where I got those numbers from lol but I would still get blood work done and I would still look into TRT if you're low. Good luck

    a Recomp is much harder then either a cut or a bulk. a very well designed and planned out stack is going to be best for a recomp, not a simple trt dose of test
