It does not take a lot of Halotestin to see any benefit; a mere 10mg every day will greatly increase strength in any individual and a mere 20mg per day will greatly provide the hardness a competitive bodybuilder will be after. Even so, while 10mg will work normally most will administer 20mg to 40mg per day max with 40mg per day being the most common. Those who go above this amount will find there will not be much improvement beyond that dose; the only thing that will greatly change is liver enzymes will go up even more.
There is generally no applicable purpose for Halotestin outside of competition; a powerlifter or bodybuilder will rarely use this steroid during his off-season as it would be unnecessary. The rule of thumb will always prove to be 2-4 weeks of use and the optimal time is prior to completion including competition day. Most will find their Halotestin works best when taken in two separate doses per day as the steroid has a short half-life of approximately 9.5 hours.
