I haven't read that discussion, My belief/experience is that an older person should avoid the more suppressive and generally health hazardous gear like M1T, and stick with juice like M4OHN, Superdrol, Anavar, Proviron, 3-alpha, etc. If you are going to do the hardcores, double up on health supps and for sure get some HCG, it's not that hard to find.
I've done a lot of Gear. I still find it best to do longer with less versus shorter with more for my body to adjust and retain my gains.
A lot of older guys should, IMO, look into maintence or cyclic doses of a steroidal AI like ATD. A loading dose of 2 for five days and 1 every 3rd day thereafter or so should keep one's T high and E low, but not excessively wiped out, but this protocol requires ongoing bloodtests to run properly.
