Health Procedures While on Steroids

In this case, we'll assume someone just shooting up 600 mg a week of test with nothing else.

How often should he go donate his blood? At what blood pressure should he do this at? How much should he donate (test produces tons of blood)?

How should he go about doing cardio to minimize the negative effects of cardiomegaly, specifically left ventricular hypertrophy?

I figure unless you're really crazy, that you'll be getting gains so fast, a bit of cardio won't hurt. How often should you do HIIT, and how far apart should these sessions be spaced out from your leg days? I doubt there are any scientific studies on this, but it just makes sense that if the steroids are making your heart muscles bigger and you're simultaneously frequently pushing your heart to the limit, that this new heart tissue would become more efficient and less of an issue, especially since HIIT and long distance running are also known to increase the size of the chambers of the heart, in addition to the myocardium heart walls. If everything is done ideally, then you'd unironically end up with a stronger heart at the end of your cycle, but I'm certain this has a limit of maybe one or two cycles, unless you do a third cycle years in the future.

      These are literally basic questions, and I only have two of them, after stating what my steroid cycle would be. The third paragraph is about my idea of maintaining decent heart health while on the gear that I would be taking.

        Why are you planning on pinning if you don't know the basics?

          I'm wondering specifically about maintaining heart health. I'm not trying to become some serious competitive bodybuilder. My plan is to just put on three to four years of natty gains in just a single year. If I sacrifice some of my leg gains to cardio, that is perfectly fine. I know cardiomegaly can frick a ton of shit up, so I figure doing lots of HIIT can help increase the size of the actual chambers of the heart, stretching out the additional cardiac muscle tissue, and also neurologically improve the heart for it's changing form, making it way less of an issue than it otherwise would be. I'm sure cardiomegaly and left ventricular hypertrophy isn't really that big of an issue from one or two five month long cycles of 600 mg of test, but I want to be as healthy as possible.

        why do you want to take steroids, anon?

          One to four years in the future, and for the purpose of getting three to four years worth of natty gains in a single year from one to two five month cycles of 600 mg of test. I don't plan on going beyond my natty limit. I just want to reach it before I turn 35. Also, even if I do lose some of it after getting off the gear, muscle memory is a very real thing, so the gains shouldn't be taking too long to come back. So, I might get four years of gains after one year, go back down to three or two after I end my cycle, and quickly go back to four after six months to a year.

    Bump. Basic fricking questions. I did some research on the blood donating, and it definitely wouldn't apply to someone taking a relatively puny 600 mg per week. Now, I'm just wondering about the cardiovascular stuff so I don't frick up my heart too much.

    so i take it you watched Jeff Nippard's video on steroid use yesterday and your takeaway from that wasn't "i should avoid steroid use for the good of my health", it was "surely there's a way to do it right!"

      Kek. I just watched that video not too long after waking up today, but that's not why I've started this thread. I've been reading about steroids and asking around for many months now. I've already watched a few hours of videos. The only thing I'm worried about now is coming out of those one or two cycles with a STRONGER heart, rather than a heart that is less capable. I'm beginning to doubt how much of an effect one or two five month 600 mg cycles will have on plaque buildup in my arteries. Usually high blood pressure is the shit that results in lesions where the plaque buildup begins, but apparently, blood pressure doesn't get too crazy on just 600 mg per week.

    >600mg a week
    Pin 200mg 3x a week for consistent serum levels. Your first cycle you should get bloods every 4 weeks to test for markers.

    >how often to donate blood
    Probably never. You won't need to at that level. Hematocrit is overblown and if you didn't have yogurt blood before taking gear you won't get it from 600mg. You only need to donate if your blood rbc is approaching 60%.

    >how much cardio
    3-4 hours of zone 3 a week. The two main concerns are blood pressure and hdl. Test can affect both negatively.

    >how to keep cardio from affecting gains
    It doesn't. It's recommended to understand exactly how to get and stay fit before you inject exogenous chemicals in your body.

    >enlarged heart
    Doesn't happen overnight and definitely not with 600mg.

      How many days a week, and should they be done a day or two after a leg day, or could the be done the day after? Same day doesn't work, because the legs are shot after a workout, and I know from experience. Also, what about having a much shorter workout where you go to zone 5 five or six times for 20 to 60 seconds at a time with 3 to 15 minute rest intervals in between?

        Says who?

        >can I do a shortcut on exercises
        If you aren't willing to work out 8+ hours a week don't take steroids.

          Someone told me. I did a heavy squat day. Waited half an hour, and my legs were completely shot when I tried running just 6 mph.
          >can I do a shortcut on exercises
          You misunderstood. HIIT training is said to provide the same amount of working out as jogging for hours in zone 3. It's just a way to save some time. I also just like the idea of pushing myself as hard as a fricking can for 20 to 60 seconds, and then giving myself a nice break before doing it again for a few more cycles. Also, I'm pretty new to the concept of lactate threshold, so if you know any redpills about it, please let me know, but I believe HIIT is the best for increasing the lactate threshold heartrate and the rate at which lactate is excreted from the blood.

            You are extremely online and simply repeating posts you've seen. Go work out for a couple years and understand how to maximize effort and get diet on point.

            There's plenty of people that drop money on gear and get nothing out of it. It's not because they didn't read enough reddit posts.

              There was a time I would jog in zone 3 for four miles once every week for over a year. I actually ended up getting a much lower heart rate from all that training. My resting heartrate is in the 50s. I would just feel sad if after doing a couple cycles of 600 mg test and after recovering my testosterone production that my resting heartrate would go up due to my heart becoming less efficient.

          Kek. I forgot one other major benefit. HIIT trains the heart quite heavily wile burning way less calories than hours of jogging. Your heart really struggles in zone 5.
