When cruising (say 250 test) do you guys just try to maintain what you built, or do you cut to prime yourself for your next push?
Curious what others do. I’ve done both. Personally, I felt like I lost a decent amount of size when I cut on cruise.
My bloods come always fine on medium/high test + similar dose EQ/Primo and 4-6iu HGH.
So in reality i never go to 250 TestE, i do something like 500-1g Test + 500-1g EQ + 5iu HGH. So minimum I have 1g of gear in + 5iu HGH.
The only time when I went to 250 TestE + 4iu HGH was a month prior to my humbelical hernia surgery, I maintained that dose until healed completely then I jumped on Test+EQ to regain some fullness and then restarted blasting. Maybe I could stay on 500 test 500 eq but still wanted to be sure that everything was ok.
Consider that lipids are always skewed but it was like that for me also as natty but with much higher LDL.
On gear my HDL always a tad low (<35), my LDL is always <100.
Kidneys function, Hematology, GGT, Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase always in the middle of reference range.
I train intense and heavy 6w in a row then I deload 1 week (don't train at all), at the end of this week usually I do bloods.
Maybe I am not the norm but that's how it worked for me, in 7 years of gear I cruised at TRT only once. I just increase, reduce, change gear.
I cut or bulk on a proper cycle, maintain on the min gear.
