    Hello everyone, I am a newb. I hope I am posting in the correct forum. If not, I'm sure a mod will move it.

    I am getting back in to boxing at 31 years old. Back when I was 14 or 15, I was around 130 lbs, aka super featherweight. When I went to college, I quit pretty much all physical activity, and took up drinking copious amounts of beer and eating tons of pizza. Aside from losing my cardio, I picked up a spare tire around the waist (and almost 20 lbs). Obviously I am no longer in fighting shape! I have no desire to compete as pro, and a going back to my old weight would make me too thin, IMO. So I have been going to the boxing gym 3 times a week and doing a lifting program called Starting Strength by Mark Rippetoe. In about 3 months, I can see some changes in my body. Mainly, my pants are looser. I guess I'd like to do what you guys call a "recomp". I'd like to finish losing the spare tire, gain a few more pounds to put me up around 155, and then cut to 147 (welterweight) for any "smoker" fights I might take. I would also like to have more energy as well.

    After reasing around here, I think the easiest way to make feel 15 again and give me more strength would probably be a testosterone cycle, but I don't feel that is right for me, for several reasons. So as far as supplements go, what should I be looking at? Some kind of testosterone booster? Would it be better to go the PS/PH route? I am currently taking 5g of creatine monohydrate per day, along with ON 100% Whey. Many of the boxing forums don't know as much about supplements, so I thought I would ask here.

    Thank you for your time.

    You're right, Testosterone isn't right for you; good for you for researching enough to realize that. You're also not ready for a PH yet though either, due to training inexperience, amongst other things.

    At this point your best bet is to get your diet under proper control - pick a macronutrient ratio and stick to it. Load up on veggies, good carbs, protein and healthy fats.

    Supplement-wise:
    Creatine and Whey Protein is a decent start. I'd say pick up some fish oil, vit D and a mineral complex for basics. Maybe some BCAAs or a hydrolysate like BC+EAA. If you want to toss a Test booster in there for good measure, go for it. There are lots of good ones around. T-911 is my personal favorite, but Sustain Alpha, Testopro and DTH all have very good reputations as well.

    I forgot to mention a few things there. My diet is currently approximately 40/40/20 C/P/F. Most of the meals I eat are some combination of oats, milk, chicken, turkey, steak, brown rice, organic breads, spinach, carrots, apples, raisins, sunflower seeds. I usually cheat 1-2 meals a week, but I don't go nuts at the pizza buffet or anything. I also take fish oil and Glucosamine/chondroitin to help with my joints. I bought a bottle of Eviscerate too. I can't use it on boxing days because the burn just kills me. I have been using 2-3 pumps twice a day on my abs and love handles.

    I am seeing good progress with my hard work, and I don't really want a short cut. But speaking as a drag racer, a little 50 shot of nitrous hidden in the trunk would be great!

    At your age & excess djbombsquad is right to suggest you diet off the extra before attempting a 'recomp'
