    I'm about 2 weeks into a cycle.... these labs were taken prior.... just wanted a baseline to go off of for comparison,,, just curious if there's anything noteworthy in this lab

  4. Those were through my endo,,, be doing some private labs midway through and again at the end .....

  5. I'm sure you can see, your test was already very low pre-cycle? You're going to have a hell of a time recovering dude, if you're able to at all after this one.

    I've been on trt for two years,,, recovery is a moot point

    Lol.... I wasn't able to get my hands on what I really wanted ...... only done test solo in the past ..... we'll see how this goes,,, gained 5 pounds so far and my bf dropped 1.5%.....

    Ah I see. Well if you're on TRT, why is your test so low pre-blast?

    I always do what it takes to be low normal for my endo labs,,, I.e. miss a few doses prior to labs,,,, so she won't lower my script

    She said she wants me at 200-400..... I really need a more open minded endo .... but that'll have to happen after my cycle I'm doing

  12. Wow yeah, that range is what put me onto TRT.

    I was around and below 160 prior to trt

  14. Had a testicular tumor at 12yo,,,, been low ever since

  15. How long have you been on TRT? Did they place you on it as a teen?

  16. Only been on it for two years ..... didn't know I was low... really didn't know much about testosterone at all.... I went in complaining about working out really hard with little to show for it,,,, after a lot of questions regarding history, diet,, etc etc they tested me and said I've most likely been low since the tumor, based on everything I said

  17. I'm 41yo btw

  18. I was 310lbs and 40% bf at the time they put me on,,, 244 and 19% now

    That's great! What's your bf% goal?

    Below 10%..... don't really care what I weigh,, wouldn't mind staying above 200... but really want bf below 10%

    This is why knowing person information is crucial. 41 Screw it go for HRT <35 is where I tend to encourage guys to think about other alternatives. Even people on HRT I tell them to make sure other areas have been explored because never know when it can come back and smack you in the face.

    I've been a health nut my whole life,,, even at 310 my cholesterol was always below 150 with great hdl/ldl ratios... didn't seek medical intervention until age 39

  23. I lift 4 days, run 4 miles a day three days and do a 90minute hot yoga one day a week

  25. Keep it up man! Great to hear you've got your health in mind first and formost. When you posted your supplement protocol, I had to do a little research myself, and I've gotta say you inspired me to make a few tweaks to my own.

    <150 is a bad thing....

    Yeah I was thinking that as well. 160-200 with proper ratios is a much better range. Could have GI issues like myself, which cause fat absorption issues, or not enough saturated fat in the diet. Coconut oil is a good way to increase HDL in a positive way.

    I just recently read some bad news on coconut oil though I personally have low-ish 5-AR activity, so my DHT is not ideal when on injections. I read that coconut oil (Lauric acid) will decrease 5-alpha-reductase activity. NOT a good thing for me, considering coconut products are making up a large portion of my diet.

    But now that I think about it, that number came from pritikin whom I disagree with on a lot of levels
