T3 - whether to use on cutting cycle or not.


Hey guys
 
Just wanting to have your opinion on this cutting cycle. I'm a bit confused how to sort this out, so any advice would be great.
 
I'm 27, 5'7, 204 pounds and about 16-17% body fat. This will be my fourth cycle. I have with me 20ml test prop, and 40 x 250mg Omnadren. I'm looking to do a 14 week cutting cycle, hopefully loose about 10-12% body fat, with 2 weeks on and off Clen throughout the 14 weeks, ECA on the 2 weeks off from the Clen and 50mg T3 running throughout the cycle, depending on how much muscle is being retained.
 
This is where my confusion lies. Ideally, I was looking to stay around 500mg of test, 600mg tops. I get quite bad acne on anything higher than that. I realise Omnas take about 4 weeks to properly kick in, and with using T3 i'm worried about losing muscle So these are the options I thought about -
 
1. Start off with 250mg Omna a week and 50mg test prop ED for four weeks, then use 500mg Omna for the rest of the cycle, and use 50mg T3 throughout.
 
2. Stick with 500mg Omna only throughout all the cycle, and start the 50mg T3 around the 4th week mark.
 
Which one would be better? Or if anyone has a better way of doing this I'm open to any advice.
 
Training wise, I'll be doing 3 days of Total Body, and 3 days of cardio, split up into 2 x 45 minute steady pace cardio. My maintainance calories are around 2995, so Ill be taking in 2700 calories on my weight days, 2150 on my cardio days. On Sunday I'll be taking in 2600 calories, and health one healthy cheat meal. Protein will be at 330g everyday, carbs will be around 220g on weight days, and under 100g on cardio days.
 
Thanks for taking the time for reading this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    12% in 14 weeks will require some serious commitment on the diet and cardio front bud. It's by all means doable but you're going to have to hit it 100%.

    Don't go higher than 50mcg a day on the T3 and losing muscle shouldn't be an issue if you keep lifting heavy and get the protein in. Probably wise to start at 25mg and see how you get on with that first, it can cause hives, heart palpatations, rashes, swelling amongst other unpleasant sides in some people so assess whether you tolerate it or not first.

    I'd just run 250mg-500mg of omna and forget the prop and also run 50mcg of t3 for the duration assuming you tolerate T3 well enough. That's more than ample for a cut.

    I'd also go lower on the cals personally but i'm a sadistic twat when it comes to cutting. Gear will stave off catabolism as long as you get the protein in.

    Thanks very much for the speedy reply. In that case I may just scrap the prop entirely and safe it for a later cycle. Do you think 330g protein every day and 500mg omna weekly will be enough to keep muscle mass whilst using T3?

    Depends on your weight doesn't it.

    At your weight I'd shoot for 300-350g a day and you can't really go wrong, Get the cals in from protein and veg first and keep carbs relatively low. 100g a day tops, preferably less. Good Fats to make up the rest of your daily cal aim. 500mg of sust is more than enough to take care of your guns in the meantime.

    You Should piss the cut if you stick to those guidelines, might even make small gains if you can find the right balance and throw some heavy workouts at it.

    Getting down to 5-6%BF will take some serious work mate. Or am I reading it wrong?
    If you do mean that then you'll need a hell of alot more cadrio.
