1  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Steroids Info & Hardcore / Re: What minimum dose for muscle retention during cutting? on: July 27, 2014, 08:56:18 AM
your question will yield 1000 answers but you want something simple and effective, 350mg of test prop per week to retain your gains while getting shredded will suffice.

I concur.

Somewhere in the 300-500mg Test for me personally.  Anything lower than 200mg and i start to lose size.  It all depends on what you were running before obviously.  If you drop from 1500mg down to 300mg, you are going to notice a big difference.

All I do is DB presses now as they allow a safer shoulder motion.



Same here, i hardly ever use a barbell for anything other than squats and deadlifts these days.

All the power lifters and strongmen i have trained with over the years had massive capped delts.

I think it's genetics mostly at the end of the day.

How long do you run it for? debating whether to start T3 now at 14.5 and 17.5 weeks out or throw it in 6 weeks out. Works well for me at moderate dose without muscle loss, I can gain muscle even on 50mcg

6-8 weeks typically.

Since you do so well with dieting, i would use it closer to the show when it's harder to lose the fat.

After using those doses, i'd cruise.  Once i'm clean for 8 weeks i look and feel a lot different, in a bad way.

Nothing wrong with cruising on 200mg Test a week for a while to get your body to reset.

I prefer long esters just because i hate injecting so often.  Tren E has always been great for me, but i do believe Ace can give a little better results.  In the end, for the average lifter, it's down to preference IMO.

It's actually very beneficial on cycle.

Personally, i take it when i'm off or cruising for an extra boost.

No harm either way.

I've never used it and would not recommend anyone take it for any reason.

I know a few guys who use it once a year to get ripped for shows without issues, but they will tell you that it's like having an intense flu and you feel like a zombie.  No chance i would ever even try it.

GH is the only thing that really made them stand out more while being lean.  Anything that bloats you will make them swell up, but i did notice a difference on 10iu of GH.

I do a lot of overhead presses and i have massive delts, but mine have always been pretty large.

I'm on TRT for life, i blast a few months a year and cruise on 200mg Test C every 10 days for a while.  Just make sure your blood work is in order.

bill's a good, knowledgeable guy.. and he's gotta make money and keep his name talked about, hence the 'ideas' for different cycles. he's selling books, he's not coaching bbers.

just keep the amount the same throughout. whether it's 200mg (I hope not), 350mg, or 500mg.. just keep it steady. no need to do the old-school 1980-1990's 'pyramid' cycle type stuff.
 

Good post.

Bill says some wild things to sell books.  A lot of his cycles i don't agree with at all, but he knows the fundamentals.

yea.. my ex gf was the only other person who had a key to my place, and I damn near had to call her (we'd not ended on good terms.. she was bipolar) to come over and help get me dressed and unlock the door. I was in THAT BAD of a spot. haha.

I just called my friend and asked him about it some more.  He said he couldn't even stand up or get out of bed he was too weak and could barely move.  If he wasn't at his girlfriends house he doesn't think he could have reached his cell phone 5 feet away.  It took them a long time at the ER to figure out what was wrong, at first they thought he had a broken disk that was causing nerve problems.  They had to give him a catheter because he couldn't even contract his muscles to piss.

The Neurologist told him he was near kidney failure his potassium was so low.  He said the way his blood work looked they would compare him to someone that was dehydrated enough to be near death.  The crazy thing is the night before it happen my friend was just relaxing watching the UFC, wasn't doing anything crazy.  It came out of nowhere with no warning signs.  He did say the week before his legs felt week one day but he just thought he was tired.

He was in ICU for 2 days and had about every test known to man run on him from MRI, CT Scan, xray, lumbar puncture, etc.  They were taking his blood every 2 hours to make sure his potassium wasn't too high due to the meds they gave him.  Too high can cause even worse issues.

He's fine now, this was a few years ago and he hasn't touched T3 since.

they mentioned that as well, but the term I remember and what I saw on the papers they gave me was 'thyrotoxic periodic paralysis'.

what a pain in the ass it was. lol.

not fun waking up unable to move your body.. literally you're paralyzed from the mid-chest down. I could 'feel' my legs and whatnot, if is somebody touched them, but I could not move. it seriously took every ounce of strength I had to inch myself using my right arm (which was still working) against the wall by my headboard and try to stand up.. then walk on dead legs against the way to my front door to unlock it to let the person in to drive me ot the ER.... every ounce of strength. so now, when I train paraplegic and quadriplegic clients (got two guys ready for the para-olympics recently), I can relate to how they 'feel' (sorta), and how much effort it takes them to get into and out of machines and into their cars and whatnot... everyday is a struggle.

Thyrotoxic is correct, my mistake.  All i remember is my friend telling me about it and how scary it was.  Waking up paralyzed and his girlfriend had to call an ambulance to carry him to the ER.

I can only imagine what it would be like to be truly paralyzed.  Unreal!

My favorites are ECA and T3.

I never go over 75mcg of T3 and always get the real stuff from Europe.

25  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Steroids Info & Hardcore / Re: Favourite Fat Burn Supporters on: July 04, 2014, 10:19:08 AM
huh? where've you been? I've talked about this pretty often. lol

was using what I thought was t4 from manpower research, and it turned out I was using around 200mcg/day of t3 instead (the t4 wasn't t4, it was t3)... and after a month, I was down to 8% from 10%, then down to 7%, then down to 5% after about 3-4 months while still using my regular doses (which at that time was about 500mg test and about 300-400mg tren a with 100mg/day drol.. I'd gone from about 230/235 down to 220, then 215, then 210... and started getting comments like "dude, you're so skinny!" or "are you getting ready for a show?".. I was like .. uh.. no?.. I'm not doing anything different.. not dieting at all, still eating 5000kcals+ comprised of protein shakes, chicken and absolute crap (pizza, doughnuts, ect...).. then down to 200..

then 195 and started getting comments like "are you ok?.. have you been sick?"... "dude, your face is way sucken in.. I can see your cheekbones". lol... then I started to actually feel ill.. well, I'd been feeling ill for a month or so at least... and then that last month I increased my dosages (drol up to 250/day, ect...) and food intake.. but was still dropping weight and getting weaker and feeling more ill.. I'd get home at 10pm and I'd be dead tired and asleep on the couch by 10:15pm.. everyday i was absolutely drained and exhausted.

 I thought I had liver issues so I'd gotten my liver labs done and the levels were elevated, esp bile, but no apparent liver issues... then one Monday I woke up with my hips/legs not working when I got out of bed. I'd thought I'd pinched a nerve in my back or something, because i was walking like a guy who walks with those hand crutches (like the guy in Something About Mary), but i had clients, so after about 15mins I'd 'walked it off' and went to work.

next day (tues) i was ok, but Wednesday morning i woke up with my legs WAYYY worse and unable to move again, and my left arm/chest was paralyed as well, so i went to the ER (in a wheelchair. lol.)... they hooked my up to iv bags (saline and electrolytes ect) and they took lab work.. i waited but had clients and after a while i could walk again so they let me go and i went back to train my clients.

next day (Thursday), i get a call from the dr saying my CK levels were 1500 or something and my thyroid was super high (i forget the number. he'd never imagined he'd see that number he says) and my tsh was "negative zero" whatever that means...and he tells me i need to "hyper-hydrate" to lower my CK levels... so that's what i did... then that day, i go to stand up out of my desk and walk 3 feet and my legs fold like an accordion. lol... then i walk out side to my truck and the same thing happens (right in front of a gym member. lol.. i tried to make it seem like i tripped. lol).. then later that night i fell inside the doorway to my home and gouge my ribs on the lock.. had to crawl and put an enourmous amout of effort to pull myself up using the cough.. then i fall in the kitchen and hit the hardwood HARD.. i thought i broke my arm (I'd broken 2 toes in the doorway fall).

so.. that night, i barely make it to bed and i left a gallon jug of water by the bed in case i had to pee and couldn't get out of bed... id' forgotten that ny alarm clock was across the room.

1am that night i wake up needing to pee.. and find that i was completely unable to move my legs and torso.. completely.. aside from my head/neck and my right arm and about 50% of my left arm.. so i text a friend who's a nurse in Boston (knowing she's the only one who'd be awake) and explain what'd happened... then she tells me "oh, well you hyper hydrated and your potassium is dead.. call an ambulance. lol"... i said fuck that, my doors locked and they're gonna have to break it down.. i'll wait. lol..

so, i wait in bed till morning and tie my phone to my wrist with my charger, knowing if I'd dropped it, there was no way I'd be able to get back up. and i swear to fucking god it took every ounce of strength i had in my to scoot myself up to the wall and use my head and shoulder to creep myself upright and "walk" like i was on stilts using the wall as a brace (I'd made it to yank the alarm out of the wall, else it'd be going off for hours with me lying there. lol)... so i make it to the door to unlock it and let my ride to the er in and have them help me get dressed... they were like "what do you need me to do?"... "everything" i said.. i couldn't do shit. lol..

so, we get to the ER and long story short... after 3 days and $160k including a handful of MRI's, they find out i had "Thyrotoxic Periodic Paralysis", and a simple potassium tablet had my legs moving again.

so, the high dose of T3 over about 9 months and about 45+ lbs (once I'd gotten down to 5%, everything else i lost was muscle), had depleted my potassium levels to a level where i was paralyzed.. levels so low they thought my heart would stop and I'd stop breathing. lol

about 90% of the pics you see people post of me on this site were during that time frame because i couldn't believe how small i was getting... and most the pics were of the 2-4wk period after i got out of the hospital and was putting back on size and took pics of the progress.

never using research chemical Co thyroid again.

Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis.

The over active thyroid forces your kidneys to dump all of the potassium out of your body.  Happen to a friend of mine who was using way too much T3 for too long.  Very scary.
