Also, I'm giving an update since I started TRT at 200mg back in April.

Starting weight - 185lbs
Weight now - 198lbs

I'm probably up a few bf % points but not a ton. 4 Abs are still visible haha

Old Bench PR - 300
Old squat PR - 475
Old deadlift PR - 535
Old strict press - 185

Now
Bench - 315, 300x2
Squat - 405x8, 425x6 445x3 - haven't 1 repped
Deadlift - haven't at all. lots of horizontal/vertical pulling, farmers carries, bb/db extensions on GHD
strict press - 205

It’s Wednesday, wait till after your blood draw Friday. You’ll still be well inside the normal upper range.

I'm in a similar boat. Trt for last 4 months. Prescribed 200/week, blood come in around 700. was taking 500 on my own and private bloodwork had me at 1350. I dropped back to the 200/ a week for 2 weeks then no shot 7 days before labs and I was at 700 again. All other levels were relatively good. Doc was happy

I hope that helps. I know everyone processes and metabolizes differently but it's how I did it just guessing based on bro-science and half life times. I want using any anti-e's either so that may have some impact as well. I did score a running script for arimadex and finasteride because my doc is dope and he's gonna let me know about ading low dose nandralone.

One thing I have done that I know comes real close is to use a 1/2 life calc such as
https://roidcalc.powerbody.ru/?langid=8


Put your normal trt dose in for 6 -8 weeks and you will see where it stabilizes. (remember that number)

Then put your current dose in and experiment on how long you skip before you can bring back in your trt and stabilize at the same spot where you stayed on your trt dose.

This should get you in the ballpark.

@macgyver well shoot that's showing only 5 days back into the normal range. Day 9 here and it shows 17.9mg (down from 43.5mg - 300mg/week for 4-5 weeks) whereas I'm supposed to be at 29mg (200mg/week)

If I pin 150mg today I'll be at 28mg. Hmmm that's pretty sweet! Thanks.

@C T J

Just remember we all process hormones a little differently. (and there is/are some variations over the 1/2 lives of Cyp within a day or so),so just err on the side of caution.

I have found this to be pretty accurate though and comes in pretty handy.

Good luck!

@macgyver - yeah I totally understand that. I guess I just don't want it to be in the teens after 9 days of no pin so I'm thinking i'll do 200 or 300mg at lunch and take my test 4 hours later. Maybe by then it will give me a bump into the 20's?

Here's the graph without smoothing. Day 9 150mg of test at 12p. Blood test will be at 4:30p. Doubting 4-5 hours will have any effect on pushing my level up. What do you guys think?
