For the Testosterone Replacement Therapy candidate generally dosing will fall in the 100mg-200mg per week range and rarely surpassing this amount. However, as frequent injections are necessary most physicians will generally opt for larger ester forms, most commonly Testosterone-Cypionate so the patient only has to inject once per week.
For the performance enhancer the dosing will be much larger and the varying levels will be much wider too but he must necessarily inject frequently as discussed if he is going to maintain stability. Generally the minimal dose when supplementing for performance purposes will be 100mg every other day with 200mg every other day being as high as most will ever go. Yes, you an absolutely take more, there is no set in stone amount but understand such high-end doses can open up the doors to side-effects that you may have wished to remain shut. In elite level competitive sports, especially in elite level bodybuilding it is not uncommon to see doses surpass a 2,000mg per week range but this can be very harsh and there is simply no way such a dosing could ever be recommended in a responsible manner.
As with all cycles, as natural testosterone production will be suppressed, once use is discontinued and responsible use will include breaks Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) is a must in order to aid and speed up the recovery process. This is where Testosterone-Propionate has a bit of advantage over many other forms of testosterone; as a small ester that clears very quickly if your cycle ends with Testosterone-Propionate and there is no other long ester gear present in your system your PCT plan can start almost immediately. Remember, the sooner we start our PCT the better off we’ll be and such rapid PCT application cannot be accomplished with long ester based testosterone. If your cycle ends with Testosterone-Propionate you could reasonably wait 3 days before PCT therapy begins; if it ends with large ester gear you will need to wait approximately 2 weeks.
A Testosterone Propionate cycle during a cutting phase is an excellent way to ensure muscle mass isn’t lost during a diet. You will also find it enhances fat loss efficiency and produces a stronger more defined look. As with the off-season Testosterone Propionate cycle, the total stack and doses may need to be adjusted in order to meet your needs; again, this is a sample guide. It is also important you consult with your doctor to ensure you’re healthy enough for use. Important Note – This type of Testosterone Propionate cycle will not produce less or more water retention compared to plans that might contain Testosterone Cypionate or Testosterone Enanthate in the Propionate versions place. It’s often assumed by many steroid users that Testosterone Propionate will yield less water retention than the aforementioned versions but that’s a myth. Testosterone is testosterone and does not become active in the body until the ester has been removed. The reason many believe it leads to less water retention is a very simple one; most given extra attention to their diet and estrogen control during a cutting phase, and this will always lead to less water retention in a Testosterone Propionate cycle or any cycle.
