    What does your total usually run on TRT?

    Just curios what most of you guys test out to while on TRT.
    The doc had me running 320mg every 2 weeks (sucked!) and it usually ran about 1320 total test.
    I decide to go DIY and it's running around 1500 total test.
    Honestly, I feel great. My other blood work is so good the doc said I deserved a gold star. HDL, LDL, crit, everything in great range. And that was post cycle!
    More than anything I'm just curious where you guys like to keep your levels.

    When are you testing your T levels in relation to your T shot?

    If we're just talking total T, on 100mg of cyp/week, and testing @ ~ 8:30 a.m. the morning of my shot, my last total T was around 661ng/dL on a scale of 348-1100 ng/dL. My next labs are around the beginning of Oct. and if the values hold, I will probably try splitting the dose up into 2 shots/week.

    AG, just curious - is 100 mg/wk your choice, are you happy with 661 & are you able to progress steadily with that amount?

    I think I would prefer to be a bit higher, but need to check free T and E2 levels before I make a definite decision. Also, I have a clotting disorder (Factor V Leiden) and my hematocrit levels are very sensitive to any addition of test, so I have to balance out the 2 so that I stay safe (I have a not so great history of cardiac events).
    Progress is slower than I would like, but I'll take slower and hopefully safer than the alternative. I plan to keep lifting as long as I'm alive, so hard work and moderate hormone levels work for me.
    BTW, good question.

    LOL, also you know it is being a part of the HIT thread Marcus started. You WILL make progress. There may be adjustments to made from one individual to another, but you WILL make progress. Otherwise, off to the cellar you go.

    Thats about right. Rule of 10 comes through again.

    100 x 10 = 1k peak

    Half 6 days = 500

    Not bad, not quite upper 1/3

    Edit: You could move that to every 5 days I bet you would be real happy if you did.
