    Every 3 to 4 months. Lowered my hematocrit from 55 to 45. Huge benefits. Crucial on cycle in my opinion. Hematocrit can kill you. If your on trt, your doctor should be monitoring it. Mine said i'd have to see a specialist and pay out of pocket. Blood draw, retest, no harm done. Feels good actually. Like refreshing the body. Getting fresh blood.
    I'm used to it so no sides after. Always double red.

    As often as possible. I've been doing regular whole blood so every 8 weeks is as often as I can go. Keeps HCT, RD-W, HGB, and my other red cell counts down. Which, in turn, makes me feel just generally healthier and stops the headaches I get when those are high. Plus it's like an oil change for your body, replace that used blood with new lol

    About every 2 months. If I cant get down to the blood donation place I will usually just donate at. Order your own kit from devine medical and it comes with the bag and do it right in the comfort of your home. It really helps keep my RBC count down during cycles. And it makes me feel amazing just like a new oil change lol.

    ^^^This. I give ever every 56 days and schedule my next donation before I leave. It is extremely important to keep your hemoglobin/hemocrit below 20 or normal. Elevated hemocrit in layman terms causes the blood to be thick and is bad for your heart. Think of it like sludge in your cars engine. Over abundance of red cells crowded, clogging, not able to deliver vital oxygen throughout your body. My temples pound and I get headaches, which are just the beginning.

    Easier to keep in control, rather than to get it under control. Iíve had to self phlebotomize a pint and a half to get my hct under 20 once.

    While there are several physical benefits to donating blood, the most powerful health benefit is arguably psychological. Because donating blood means that someone (or multiple people) somewhere will receive the help they desperately need. The psychological health benefit you receive from knowing you're helping others can be just as helpful as the physical health benefit. When you roll up your sleeve and sit down in that chair, you know you're making a difference - and that makes you feel good.​

    Yup, giving blood should be required with this gear game.
    One of my best friends ended up with 7 blood clots. And he didn't even run that much gear.
    Give 3 times per year and take a 81mg aspirin every day.

    He had to have noticed how shitty he felt. My hematocrit gets above 54 and I feel like death. Hence why bloodwork is very important

    Another reason ubiquinol, fish oil, and K2 are extremely important when running gear imo too

    I did the double red last time and shortly after that I became extremely tired all the even falling asleep at work
    I went to the Dr and had blood tests done and found out I was anemic.
    Is this coincidence or could it be related?
