CAUTION #2: You do not want to go too high in testosterone, something I discuss quite often in the Peak Testosterone Forum . First of all, steroid men often have greatly skewed lipids and high cholesterol. However, there was also a study done where researchers gave healthy men 200 mg of testosterone enanthate per week. Enanthate is quite similar to the cypionate ester and 200 mg per week is a beefy dose. So these men did not really need probably HRT and they gave them a large dose. And, even though the men were not taking steroid levels, they experienced no beneficial changes in cholesterol and a significant decrease in HDL. Again, the body is a highly tuned machine and it is very difficult to push physiological ranges successfully.
