    I would start off with something light - Novadex XT and obviously get the diet and training on target. From there you can't go wrong with Epistane.

    I agree. I am 40, been training seriously for 6 yrs. I have always had difficulty gaining mass unless I eat, eat, eat, and then eat some more.

    I started with a test booster after 2 yrs time after using creatine regularly. This yr I tried epi and had some great strength gains, size is still tough unless I get my cals. Take it slow so that your joints are OK and you build the skeletal muscle and stabilizers, then you can handle the big stuff.

    :bb3:

    Oh, 6'0 and 240, definitely wait on anything like epi. Get in the best shape you can and then try it. Get your diet in check and training set. Get the bodyfat down first.

    I've always been told that you can't bulk up and cut at the same time-----also that between 30 and 60 years of age we lose half of our natural test and half of natural hgh----
    also that using OTC's boost your test for only a few hours- and then it falls and you suffer a estrogen rebound because as your test levels rise -so do your estrogen levels-- I prefer to self medicate using some test- four months on-two months off-also hcg one day a week-arimadex when my nipples itch- and nolvadex when i come off----i am 59 years old and have been doing this cycle for the last ten years.....my sex drive is like when i was 30-35 years old-- i know the young guys laugh ---but the older dudes know what i'm talking about.

    Seems riskier than crap to me - just my two cents. Estrogen is nasty stuff to a middle aged male. I hope you guys are all monitoring it...

    I'm 40 and just getting back to my regular workouts after a couple of injuries, then a bout of laziness over the holidays, and a recent bad cold turned sinus infection.

    I have quite a few supplements in my stash, so far I've only been taking Neovar and Regenesen.

    I might do epistane or H drol soon, I have both, just holding back.

    Getting the calories is a bit difficult for me, I just can't eat a lot, but I get at least one weight gainer shake and/or protein shake most days, along with meals.
    Since I burn calories rather quickly, when I had my wisdom teeth pulled, I lost 12 lbs in one week, so I'm hoping after bulking the excess weight will fall off.

    Im 47 and my goals have shifted from bulking up to staying lean, hard and cut. doesn't seem like carrying around the extra bulk is necessarily a good thing as you get older. but i guess its a personal preference. have run furazadrol solo and it sliced and hardened me up nice. will probably run it with Prime next month...

    anyway, OP, good luck...

    Hey Guys I'm relatively new to the forum, Anyway I workout regulary with split routine
    with cardio every other day (30-40) mins., after lifting, I'm 6'2" 235, 46
    Bench is 275x1
    Sqaut 315 x2
    deadlifts for me are not a option screwed my back all to hell, went down a flight of stairs
    and got a little nerve damage but nothing I can't handle on a daily basis. But when I DL, I can hardly move the next day.
    I would guess my BF% around 15%
    Just want to put on a little upper body size and trim the waist, anygood sups recommended would be great. I've been looking at Hdrol any suggestions on this?
    My diet is pretty good not to much junk I drink well over a gallon of water pretty regulary
    I've been using meth-1D recently and it was ok just cycling off that right now.
    Anyway you get the idea.

    If your gym has a HammerStrength Seated Triceps Pushdown you might want to try building up on that on your Arm days. I get great arm, upper back and upper chest results from it. Now you have to work up to going heavy but it does pay off. Likewise I highly recommend working up to 6 sets of pullups, you can start assisted if needs be. Target getting to 2 sets of wide grips, 2 of front grips and two of parallell grips. I aim for 13 reps per set and afterwards I not only feel pumped I can see my upper body growing every week. Oh yeah I'm pushing 68 and it still works for me. Good Luck.

    I'm 49 and have been on trt for 3 years with a blast a time or 2 a year[500 test 300 deca]. Keep an eye on my blood pressure and blood work, so far no worries. I take sawpalmetto and an over the counter anti E. You only go around once and I'm going to feel good and look good while I'm here. I might get hit by a truck tomorrow. Good luck to all.

    There are plenty of good herbal supplements that work very well for older folks..

    I have bulked (not intentionally) to around 250 at 5' 11" and am reasonably lean. I have to give props to Prime and some other herbals I have used. I see no need to use anything stronger.

    Great thread! Was starting to feel like bulking at age 51 wasn't realistic. Just fired up my motivation all over again! Thanks bruthas.
