Using T3 to increase protein synthesis

During an AAS cycle, some people use low doeses of T3 to increase protein synthesis.

I don't understand how increasing your metabolic rate can increase protein synthesis, as ectomorphs, who have high metabolisms (and frequently undiagnoes hyperthyroidism) are hardgainers.

Can someone explain?

    Increasing metabolic rate means more calories used as fuel, this with a high protein diet means more protein can be turned over. They are only cataboic to an insufficient nutrient supply in which case they will canibalise muscle tissue as well as fat, but with a very high protein intake they actually become anabolic due to the increased turnover of protein matched to the correct intake results in an anabolic environment being created.

    So, providing that a person with a revved up metabolism eats enough, he can build more muscle than someone with a slow metabolism?

    Correctamundo! T3 gets a bad rep for muscle wasting because people are usually dieting and not eating sufficient calories which is also a trait of your typical 'hardgainer'. As I say give elevated T3 enough protein and you have a great anabolic environment especially during bulking cycles with added AAS.

    POWERHOUSE585 - The protein intake needs to fit the individual and requires some adjusting and learning from your own responses but it is a significantly higher intake than regular in the region 1.5g to 2g per pound bodyweight. A typical dose of T3 for this purpose is 25 to 50mcg daily, which is lower than the doses asociated more with cutting but enough for the increased calorie usage and the desired goals.
