    Early morning wake ups

    Well, I’m now pretty sure my garbage sleep is directly related to my E3D injections causing those nights to be horrible sleep followed by a trash feeling the entire next day. I will be switching to 25mg EOD by next shot. Enough of this.

    Cable Exercises Can Develop the Body Fully and Safely

    Curious though...how many have built a physique like yours (or bigger) with cables only from the beginning? I still believe free weights are necessary for achieving the biggest/strongest level of muscularity.

    Early morning wake ups

    Do you have any update? my experiment failed. I’m back to waking up at 5am regardless of what time I go to bed. In a perfect world with a perfect life and job, that would be fine, but this is not sustainable for me.

    I know; I was hoping he’d get an email notification of the reply in his thread. Probably not, but hopeful.

    Bump...no update here in a while. Curious as to what your seeing now, thoughts on outcomes, etc.

    Blood Pressure Spiking

    Gotcha. I’ve been considering moving towards EOD. Twice per week at 50mg each shot screwed up my sleep pretty bad, 40mg E3D is better but I wonder what 25mg EOD would do...

    How much do you use 3 times per week?

    Blood Pressure Spiking

    Yeah, I’ve done that test once before; stopped the C and slept fantastic, but when I started again, it took about a week or 2 to notice the sleep issues again so I wasn’t sure it was the C. I’m just having a hard time believing that vitamin C causes me to wake up at 5am no matter what time I go...

    Blood Pressure Spiking

    But Vitamin C on its own doesn’t give you anxiety? Im asking because I believe I’m having issues with high doses of Vitamin C.

    Vitamin C and garlic gave you bad anxiety?

    Pregnenolone, missing piece?

    I stopped. It made me just feel weird and not in an enjoyable way. I may revisit later but I feel good enough for now and can function, and with several changes to my career coming up and vacations I want to be in peak performance and can’t risk feeling worse.

    So many post on low Shbg, what range is low shbg?

    I’m not understanding something...what is the implication of low SHGB? I just found mine going through old labs and see that it’s 16. I’ve had a helluva time getting dialed in...

    Fatigue and Tired on TRT

    I tried HCG in the very beginning for a month or so, but didn’t see any benefit so I stopped. But, that was 4-5 years ago and before I was dialed in or even remotely dialed in. It may serve a purpose, but so far this lower test dose and a little transdermal DHEA is right on the money. I wake...

    Fatigue and Tired on TRT

    I’m a brand new convert to the “less is more” camp as of last week and feeling good with 40mg every 3 days. But, for me, it wasn’t due to high estrogen. My e2 never went above 17 even at 900 total T and top of range free T. I believe in my case it was negatively affecting adrenal output or...

    Early morning wake ups

    I missed this post first time around. Anyway, my experiment is a success so far! 40mg every 3 days and I’m sleeping great! No post exercise malaise or PEM, I feel relaxed, not all revved up, I haven’t taken BP yet but I haven’t had crazy palpitations yet since the drop (mild ectopic heartbeats...

    Pregnenolone to Combat Water Retention

    I’m thinking the hypersensitivity to everything is a result of the low progesterone/pregnenolone. I will say that I do believe my progesterone levels were lowish, because I remember my train of thought back then was “progesterone=evil” and that my level was “good”. Back then my line of...

    I’m the same here with BP. I still wonder if it’s a problem though..

    Pregnenolone, missing piece?

    Gotcha. Well, I’m going to give this topical a fair shot first. I’ll start Wednesday.

    Pregnenolone to Combat Water Retention

    I had progesterone tested a few years ago But I don’t recall the level nor can I find the results. I know my pregnenolone and DHEA-S levels are trashed though, well below normal. I’ll be testing transdermal pregnenolone starting on Wednesday in an attempt to fix sleep issues, mild water...

    Pregnenolone to Combat Water Retention

    @DJ87 Have you had any success with this? I’m about to try topical pregnenolone and now considering topical progesterone if that doesn’t work.

    Early morning wake ups

    I agree on all accounts. The idea of EOD dosing sounds awful. I don’t travel but I can’t afford to go through coming off. I’m going to reduce dosage first...40mg twice per week first. Even if that keeps my levels at 400 trough, that’s better than without any TRT.

    Early morning wake ups

    Are you going to continue or try daily dosing or anything to mitigate? I also should mention that since starting TRT, I’ve aged expeditiously. So much grey and wrinkles that people regularly think I’m mid 40’s but only about to turn 37.

    Early morning wake ups

    Is your libido improved or still garbage with TRT? And do you have a plan to fix that?

    Early morning wake ups

    Oh yeah, the palpitations! Forgot to mention that. Can’t be healthy, right?

    Early morning wake ups

    Good points. I think I’ll try 40mg twice per week first, see how that feels before going the EOD route though. I also have transdermal pregnenolone and DHEA I need to try since those hormones are low too.

    Early morning wake ups

    Thanks for the reply. Great points about the peaks that I didn’t consider. I have thought about EOD...no way ED lol. How would I convert that to EOD at 100mg per week? Maybe 30mg EOD? Would IM or sub Q work? I’m doing IM now and I don’t really like sub Q. With my OCD tendencies, I never...

    Does TRT raise or decrease cortisol?

    I just posted in the other thread about testosterone causing sleep issues. I may have to do a salivary cortisol test again and measure at that 3am wake up time. As I mentioned in the other thread, I’m only using 50mg testosterone twice per week, and that keeps my free T about 19-22 on range of...

    Early morning wake ups

    I’m going to jump into this conversation. I’m only using 50mg testosterone twice per week, and that keeps my free T about 19-22 on range of 9-25, and total T about 550. Obviously not outrageous levels, but I’m now wondering if it’s still too much for me. It keeps my HCT at 50-51 and HGB...

    Pregnenolone, missing piece?

    So by your line of thought, oral capsule would be even better than sublingual as well, right?
