    OG, good to hear from you again. I was laid up for a while with a torn rotator cuff but I am coming back fast. I am a little short of 4 months out (Early June) but my lifting is getting better. In the past week I have hit 5 reps @ 280 on the Squat, a single @ 510 in the Rack Deadllift and...

    TT, if you could find a decent Naturopath ie natural health MD or an "Aging Specialist" you can get a prescription for Test Cypionate and even 100 mgs/wk would only run you $90 for a 3 month supply.

    Can you gain muscle when you get older?

    I don't know how I missed out on this thread, it's made for me LOL! When I came back to the US in 2000 I was 59 yrs old and weighed in at 149 lbs. Now at 70 1/2 I stay between 210 and 215. I've doubled my strength over that time. In just the last two weeks I hit a 5 X 260 Squat and 5 X 440...

    Good luck and God Bless OG. Went through much the same with my own dad 6 years ago. He passed at 89 with Parkinsons and Dementia, my mom the year before with Alzheimers. You will survive and though they no longer realize it, you will always know that your love for them, here for your dad...

    Understand. I too really judge my progress by my BP/Squats/Rack Deads. Doing my 4 split/8 day week I had 4 great days last week improving everything in either reps or weight. Then 3 days ago I flubbed big-time and missed my prior Rack Deads by 40 lbs. I was disgusted and took 3 days off then...

    OG. Have you tried using Taurine? It works great for me to avoid cramps and both my late wife and my new lady love it as a way to avoid those nighttime-screaming-leg cramps. Usually 4 to 5 gms daily works well. Side effect of Taurine is that it is very good for the macula in your eyes.

    Can test boosters help post andropause?

    Glad to hear the good news Red. Keep it up. For me the improvements continued for about 1 1/2 years until I got back to 20/20. At least I feel good because passing on some of my experience is helping guys here. I'm sorry about your having an eyesight problem but I am the dedicated, resident...

    200 mg test every two weeks?

    My normal test levels are around 180. My Docs at the VA have had me on 200 mg of Test Cyp and test me every 3 months for my serum test level. I always schedule the test for 7 days after I take my shot and still my levels stay around 1100 to 1300. No bad dropoff there. My natural test level...

    Great tip,thanks! I had never even heard of Feverfew. Now after an hour on Google I am up to speed. It's too late to help me for my appointment this morning but I will get some right away and try it. I did my usual with Beta-Sitosterol, Pygeum, Stinging Nettle Root and Milk Thistle....we'll see...

    Back in the 90's I used to go up to 10 because of my extreme BPH. Now I stay between 7 and 9. That's why I had to go through slow years with the genetic PSA test called PCA3 and the PSAF test, then followed by watchful monitoring for the 6 months of Androderm patches and then the first 6...

    I'm talking my blood test scores as well. My laptop is out for the next two weeks to have the IO repaired or I would look for the references I believe I saved. Both heavy lifting and sex drive my test and PSA numbers up and that's not what I want on my blood test.

    Starting Over

    I plan to leave the VA and go back to using my original Naturopathic Doc. First visit went well and along with all the vitamin testing he has me doing a bood test for the full spectrum of testosterone related issues which the VA wouldn't do, this week. I have had issues with my test and PSA...

    Damn replied and lost it again. Go for it Tuber, you won't be dissappointed with the Cissus. You'll love the rack deads just start out slow and work into high weight/low rep eg 5 or 6. I precede them with 3 X 20 @ at 45 plate raises and follow them up with 2X each of front and back shrugs.
