If T3 is the active thyroid hormone, I'm confused as to what the benefits of the T4 is. Let me know what your best experiences have been with either.

T4 controls metabolism and growth.

But if I'm not wrong t4 converts to t3. T3/clen is the way to go but at a about 10% muscle loss even with high dosages of aas. Of course if your using it for cutting.

T4 is the hormone derived from the thyroid gland that is the precursor to the active form of thyroid hormone T3. T3 regulates metabolism and it's this conversion that is the goal of those with hypothyroidism. T4 is present 20x greater than T3 so I am not sure why one would bother with exogenous T4. Even people with hasimoto's disease still have adequate T4 levels.

What's the dosing on T3? I'm actually thinking about running some towards the end of this cycle, I've read up on T3 but can't really find anything to help with dosing or any type of protocol for it.

Exogenus T3 can shut off T4 production and conversion. If you are prone to hypothyroidism its a good way to expedite the onset of the condition.

SigRep are you running GH? I read an article a couple weeks back that said T4 should always be included with GH. Let me see if I can remember where it's from and post it up. Was a great read. Some of it went over my head but it was specific about T4 being more important than T3 to include.

I'm not on GH, but that's certainly interesting info.
