Testosterone Cypionate doses can vary greatly depending on the purpose of use and the desires at hand. This is one of if not the most commonly used testosterones in Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). It is also one of the most commonly used in performance settings second only to Testosterone Enanthate. This isn’t due to Testosterone Enanthate being more powerful or effective, it’s simply in higher supply on the black market. In fact, the two compounds are interchangeable; the same Testosterone Cypionate doses will work with Testosterone Enanthate.
In a TRT setting, Testosterone Cypionate doses commonly range from 100-200mg every 7-14 days, and in some cases every 21 days. Let’s be very clear, regardless of the dose, any plan that calls for injections to be less than every 7 days is inefficient and represents a physician who does not fully understand TRT therapy. Once injected, peak testosterone levels will be reached within the first 48 hours and fall back to baseline by approximately day 7. If you’re only receiving one injection every 14-21 days you are going to experience extreme highs and lows in your testosterone levels. The severity of a man’s condition and his overall physical health will affect his total Testosterone Cypionate doses. However, most men will find Testosterone Cypionate doses of 100-200mg every 7 days to be an acceptable range. In some cases maybe a little less, and while more is sometimes needed it’s not common. Regardless of the precise dose, splitting the total dose into two equal weekly injections will be the best option. This will keep levels peaked and stable at all times. For example, if your plan calls for 200mg per week, you would split this into two 100mg injections per week, such as on Monday and Thursday.
For the purpose of performance enhancement, base Testosterone Cypionate doses will fall in the 400-500mg per week range. In fact, for many men this is all they’ll ever need even if they’ve been using anabolic steroids for years. Testosterone Cypionate doses of this range are very well-tolerated by most healthy adult men and will work well continually cycle after cycle. If you’ve never run a cycle before, this is where you’ll want to start as it will help you determine your overall response.
Higher Testosterone Cypionate doses above the base performance level are not uncommon. You will find many men who supplement with 600-1,000mg per week. Most men will still find the 600mg range to be very tolerable, but as the dose increases beyond this point the probability of side effects begins to greatly increase. When Testosterone Cypionate doses surpass the 1,000mg per week mark this will dramatically increase the probability. For the average gym rat, his Testosterone Cypionate doses will never need to leave the 400-600mg per week range. For those who live a more hardcore lifestyle, such as a competitive bodybuilder or someone who simply lives that lifestyle, his doses will reach higher levels. Such doses can be run safely but it will take a concentrated effort and educated use; caution is advised.
Low Testosterone Cypionate doses for the purpose of performance enhancement do have their place. Testosterone often represents a base steroid in a cycle or stack, but sometimes it is not desired as a base. While there may be no desire for high testosterone levels, you will still need some testosterone to combat the suppression caused by other anabolic steroids. In such cases, Testosterone Cypionate doses of 100-200mg per week may get the job done. In reality, you’re simply following a TRT plan; however, most will find 200mg per week to be the safest most effective dose.
