background? age, weight, etc...
I HATE these type of threads by and large, but I have done a lot of research and come up with no cut and dry answer. I need some help in this department because I am suffering from low test and high estrogen (middle fat, lack of drive, etc.) and I actually have some money to spend for once.
I hope that everyone doesn't bash me too much and I don't plan on constantly making these kinds of threads but I would appreciate some help. Thanks in advance. Also, I have about $70/month to spend on these products.
background? age, weight, etc...
Sorry, should have included that. I'm 32, 6'2" and about 255 with about 25% BF all around the middle. I've been training for years and my progress is grinding to a halt.
Also, my sex drive is sporadic. I miss my morning friend. Hope this helps.
Another little bit of information, I have taken Diesel Test 2010 and I'm sorry but it did nothing for me. I know a lot of others had good results, but I felt nothing. Ejaculoid/Tribuloid stack was better for wood and strength for me.
I don't want to take PH's so that limits me somewhat. Any help would be appreciated.
two options - go with something like Nolvadex XT or Activate (DS) or talk to your doctor about HRT
depends which route you want to go, if your looking for AI/ATD or herbal test boosters.....for herbal look into colossal labs testoFREAK, but HRT is best way to go at your age.......if your ok with synthetic hormones.

Thanks, guys. I am going to check into a product soon. I just want to feel strong, confident and easily sexually aroused like I used to. I'm going to wait a little longer and see how people are doing on the AX and then make my decision.
HRT is something I would consider if my natty levels were so low that I actually need an exogenous source. I'm going to get my t-levels, etc. checked before hand anyway so I'll know then.
I hate to be graphic, but I do have some of the less serious but common side effects: lack of morning wood 4 or 5 times a week, loss of erection during sex, softer erections, lack of energy, a large amount of belly fat in relation to total bodyfat, etc.
I don't want to do HRT until I have to so natural is the way I want to go until I just can't. I'm too young to feel this damn old. Thanks for all the input.
I got this stack idea from USP Labs but I don't know in what dosages:
Off USPlabs subject but have you tried from Omega sports. I would stack , , Nettle root, Avena sativa, and forskolin. This could possible be the best testosterone elevating stack ever created and it's yours for free today folks!
Another vote for getting your hormone levels checked (T, thyroid, etc.). In my case, I had low T and thyroid, and doing HRT (age 38) completely changed my life for the better.
Confidence, strength, wood, it's all there.
Check out Dr. Chrisler's protocol - T + HCG. It works great and keeps the nuts in good order.
Who is Dr. Chrisler?
I have tried many testosterone boosting supplements and I have found that nettle extract works great. I am currently testing Activate Extreme and it is working great. All of the classic test elevating signs are there: acne, aggression, increased erections, improned mood.

This is encouraging. I want to be able to take something that will make me feel better and more aggressive and hopefully I can find a supp I can take everyday without cycling. There is nothing I hate more than the letdown of coming off a good supplement.
Still reviewing the research. What about Powerfull in bulk? Also, do you need to cycle natural supps? Sorry for all the ?'s, I just need answers and experiential feedback from people who have been there.
Sup Jay Madden,
I have used Hyperdrolx2 by Anabolic Extreme and it worked awsome; lots of random wood, morning wood every morning, rock hard erections so hard that my junk would hurt from it, and great lasting power. I didn't feel more aggressive on it though. Do you take ZMA (zinc + mag) ? If not then try that first.
You say you have all of your fat predominantly around your midsection. That sounds like high cortisol. You may wanna one of the many cort products: lean extreme, x-lean, retain 2, etc.
Yeah, I think cortisol might be high too. I need to get tests done. I hope that I can get the doc to do all the right tests, but we'll see. Unfortunately, most MDs don't know **** about what hormone levels are important to check for a weightlifter.
I'm encouraged by the feedback and hope to get enough information to make an informed purchase. Again, thanks to everyone so far.
You might also want to check out Jungle Warfare to free up bound test and lower estrogen all at once. After two weeks you should begin to notice more aggresion and strength gains. At your size you might want to up the dosage by a cap or, better yet, buy two bottles and run them back to back.
But I do have to agree with what others have said: if you're really that concerned, get your panels done. And see what the doc says. Anything he can do to help you out will most likely be better than what you can buy OTC.
Also, I don't mean to be rude but nothing has been mentioned of your diet. If you don't have this figured out then maybe that should be the first step. No offense but at 25% bf, you could definitely make an improvement there on your own without anything hormonal. This could lead to more confidence/strength/etc after seeing visible changes in overall body makeup (mid-section body fat may still be a problem but overall you may lose fat). Also, it has been shown that high percentages of bodyfat contribute to higher levels of estrogen which could be contributing to the problem.
Whatever you choose to do it seems like you're a smart guy and will figure out the right thing to do for your own body without doing something stupid. Best of luck!
