Test Prop

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.

Just wondering what thoughts are on test prop only cylcle for 10 weeks at 400mg per week (2 pins at 200mg) for 1st cycle. Gymming 4-5 nights a week. Body fat still needs to come down a bit but diet going well. 31yo. I had read higher body fat could give more chance of estrogen. Allso thoughts on PCT vs tapering appreciated  and if gyno would be an issue on a lower dose.

Thanks.

Mike.

Hi when I talk about test propionate, test suspension and test no-ester etc I prefer to go off daily or eod dosings rather than a weekly amount as it is a short ester. With test prop you would be better off using slightly lower dosages and taking them more frequently than what you are thinking  200mg twice a week is quite a dose one day  followed by nothing for a few days. That is an injection schedule suited more to a longer ester such as enanthate or cypionate. I suggest using one of those esters for the fact that it will be easier to keep your hormones more stable and when you finish they essentially taper off nicely by themselves. If you are set on test prop I suggest 150mg eod which will give you around 600mg per week. That’s going to be a good dose for you.

Apart from that, the leaner you can get before you start the better. And gyno can always be an issue. Better to have tamoxifen and not need it. Than to need it and not be able to get it.

 

Good luck.

Hi mate thanks for the tips. That makes sense on the 150 eod. What are your thoughts on tapering after 12 weeks? I know everybodys differnt but in your opinion would gyno be likely on a dose of 600mg per week. Will be making sure all meds are on hand before begining of cycle as still need to drop some more fat and tighten diet up a little more before starting

I’d finish the cycle with a short simple taper. Don’t over think it.

 

Honestly some people can run 2000mg of test and not get any signs of gyno others will get a flare up off 200mg. It’s the same as some people having clear skin and others being covered in oily acne from their cycle.

 

who knows until you do it. I would say the fatter you are the higher the probability of getting gyno.

Why are you so set on test propionate?

Well i have no preference for the propionate in particular but that is whats available to me at the moment. I have never done a cycle so i couldnt say i rather prop over test e for example but if it was test e that was available id say that would be my 1st cycle. I had heard the prop is allso faster acting not that that made me more keen on it. Id probably rather a longer ester so as not pinning every 2nd day
