I am 42 years old. I am about to start 500mg Test E a week. I've heard different things from different people. Some say it wont benefit me and others say it will. I'm looking to lose weight and get stocky. Any advice?
I'm not sure what my levels are exactly but earlier this year I had my pcp test me and she said my levels were normal for my age. But I want to build some muscle, lose weight and feel good.It depends what your blood panel says, combined with how you feel. My total was in the 400’s, free was 7.1 and bioavailable at 200.4. On top of that I felt like crap and was a weepy mess. Now, after almost 4 weeks, I feel amazing. I’m also on HCG.
You can order your own blood work online cheap.To be honest I haven't figured out which PCT. I'm new to this. Haven't started the cycle yet. I will ask for copies of my results from my pcp.
Thanks for the infoMy Dr is 100% against TRT, so I'm doing it diy to see what the changes would be. Test levels 2 years ago were 290 total / 6.1 free, which he considered "close enough to normal".
Having a test level nearing 1,000 was a huge change for me, mentally as well as physically. Words really can't describe the difference. It's like the brakes were bad on your car, but you never really noticed it until you had them fixed. Maybe not the best analogy, but you get what I'm saying.
Two pieces of advice; Don't forget your age. After 6 - 8 weeks you're going to see a substantial strength increase. Don't hurt yourself because you feel like you're 20 again. You're not. And be prepared for a possible big increase in libido. It can get some (married) guys in trouble.
Plenty of knowledgeable people here, so ask if you have questions. Somebody's bound to have the answer
So do you think I should try 300-350 a week instead of 500 a week?Lol, yeah 500mg is going to provide benefits you are looking for. But it isn't a free pass to eat like **** and not do anything, you put in the work and you'll be amazed at how that will transform you.
I will say that I run blasts at 300-350 and have never seen increased benefits moving to 500.
Appreciate the information. I think that is exactly what I'm going to do. I'm going to run a cycle of 500mg Enanthate then stay at about 150mg a week. I need to find a hormone clinic where I live so that I can get it from a dr.I am 46 years old and have been on trt from a hormone clinic for the past year because pcp wouldn’t start me on testosterone therapy. My total t was 300 ng/dL and I was very symptomatic of low t. The clinic started me on 250 mg test cyp weekly (way too much btw). I gained 15 lbs (5’8” started at a doughy 167 lbs up to a lean 183 lbs) in 3 months and found my abs. T level was around 1,000. Mind you, my exercise regimen remained the same (running, mountain biking, skiing, weight training) as pre-trt.
However, my skin was red all the time, I was moody, my bp started getting pretty high, and I had a ridiculous libido.
Since, I’ve dialed myself in at 75 mg twice weekly via IM injection with a 27 g needle (150 mg/week total). I’m staying at a leaner 173 lbs and feel great with an average t level around 750-800. Skin back to normal color, bp in normal range, and much more even mood. Also, I’ve lost minimal strength from when I was 183 lbs. my workout intensity is almost to what it was when I was in my 20’s, and my diet is on point.
My point? Cycling at 250-300 mg test should be more than plenty at your age. Maybe cruise at 150 mg between blasts, just my $0.02
Proven peptides has sarms. Didnt see any AIs on there page. Is there a way for me to see all the sponsors?Off hand no. I heard of arimistane, but if you can get test you should be able to get an ai.....we have a couple research chem sites that are sponsors. iam pretty sure they have arimidex and aromosin. I forget wich ones but proven pepties just popped up as i read this
Nah I know I have to do my part. I know it's not going to be easy. It's going to take a lot of hard work and dieting. I just wanted a boost. Something to help me get results a little faster. I'm 42 bro. At my age itll prob take forever.Your playing with fire here bud.
Start lifting and lose weight. You'll be surprised how much better you feel and your hormones might even go up as a result. Then reassess. Sounds like you want the easy way out
We are trying to help you here. Having excess body fat and going on testosterone will not end well for you. Do 100mg per week, maximum if you must attempt it. But, losing fat first with diet and cardio is the best route.Nah I know I have to do my part. I know it's not going to be easy. It's going to take a lot of hard work and dieting.

Nah I completely understand. I appreciate all the advice that everyone is giving me. You guys know way more about this stuff than I do. I'm not going to run the cycle right now. Going to work on my diet and lose the necessary weight. Going to hit the gym and do some cardio and weight lifting. Then I will consider Test.We are trying to help you here.

I am biased because I rep for the company that makes it, but the best over the counter AI that I have used [that is still legal] is VIRTUS by ironlegion. my favorite of all time was td formestane but it's no longer available to me....Hey guys, does anyone know of any over the counter AI that works? I am going to start a cycle soon and cant get my hands on an AI. When I last used Test C 250mg a week I had some nipple tenderness and a lot of bloating.
Bravo. You will likely get to your goal faster this way. Goodluck, man.Nah I completely understand. I appreciate all the advice that everyone is giving me.
