Testosterone Cypionate Dosing and Administration
Medically, Testosterone Cypionate is prescribed at 250mg once every 2 – 4 weeks, which is also dependent on the physician’s protocol, and the patient’s progress in his TRT therapy.
In the realm of bodybuilding and performance enhancement, Testosterone Cypionate is normally run at around 300 – 500mg weekly as a beginner dosage range. Intermediate Testosterone Cypionate dosages are often in the range of 500 – 750mg per week, and advanced users are known for running as high as 1,000mg or more per week of Testosterone Cypionate.
As Testosterone Cypionate possesses a half-life of around 10 – 12 days, it is recommended that Testosterone Cypionate is administered once per week at an absolute minimum. However, if one wishes to experience the best results possible, ideally Testosterone Cypionate would be administered two times per week where the dosage is split evenly between injections. For example, a Testosterone Cypionate dosing of 500mg/week should be administered as 250mg on Monday and 250mg on Thursday every week. This minimizes peaks and valleys in blood plasma levels, and thus also reduces certain unwanted side effects due to spiking blood plasma levels of the hormone.
