I'm 38 years old, 5' 11", 212#, 20% BF. I eat fairly well...Healthy protein about 175-200g/day. The best I've ever been able to cut to is 17%BF and 194# I pretty much ate chicken and rice for every meal except breakfast which was egg whites and oatmeal. I have been blessed with an incredibly slow metabolism all of my life and have pretty much had love handles and a spare tire and thicker thighs my whole life. I carry my weight though the belly. I've been training for 3 years now and wile I'm getting some results, not nearly the results I should have for the training I've done.
My concern is that I have low T and it's been that way since my late 20's. I've tried a couple of AI's- Sci Fit ES3 and recently Alchemi's Alpha Pro-T. If my research is correct my BF is too high for HDrol or even Test? What I've been thinking of running is Activate Extreme and 8-10 weeks of CJC-1295 with DAC and Frag 176-191. My thinking is that I will boost my T while cutting fat. The only other think I can think is to save up and go under the knife and have it lipo'd out of my midsection. I'd rather do it through training even if with a little assistance.
Any insight you fellas/ladies can provide would be greatly appreciated!
"If my research is correct my BF is too high for HDrol or even Test?" Your research is incorrect. If you have low T, it doesnt matter how fat you are. Get it to where it should be. Its only goingto help. That said, if your if not seeing the gains you want and are still overweight, I can tell you with 100 % confidence your eating more than chicken and rice my friend and your not working hard enough in the gym on the treadmill or weights or both. Id say 80% of the people I see in the gym arent working hard enough. They are doing just enough to say they worked out. The body doesnt lie. When people who are overweight tell me they just eat salads or dont eat BS, and their overweight, my BS flag comes out of my back pocket. Instead of guessing on the T get it checked
Note: screw the test boosters. Do the real thing if its low.
Haha, fair enough...Back story I swole to close to 300# about 3 years ago and had my galbladder out. Time for a change. I also was in between jobs so I had tons of time to be in the gym. I definitely know what it takes to "work hard enough". I've maintained for multiple years now but I want to balance that with appropriate gains. Now, I've got a great gig that I can afford to eat quite well so not necessarily chicken and rice for every meal. However I watch everything and only have 1 cheat day per week. Typical day two hard boiled eggs and protein shake for breakfast, almonds and cottage cheese for lunch, jimmy johns turkey sandwich for lunch, protein bar or lean meat snack, and my boo's homemade turkey chili for dinner (42g protein) sprinkle of cheese for effect and glass of skim milk 8 oz, protein shake before bed.Even when I was "cut" at 194 and you could start to see my obliques my love handles were not going anywhere. Believe me I know abs are born in the kitchen...That being said I don't have 3 hours a day for the gym but with three kids and a time consuming job I still get in for 1.5 a day 5/6 days a week depending on overall schedule...
So you're saying get tested, if low fuck the peps and go to T? I see some comments on a lot of the threads (been stalking for a while now) that if you have high BF you shouldn't be running a cycle???
there is a difference between running a cycle and being on TRT. You do TRT to be healthier and fit and you do cycles to bodybuild. TRT you never come off a dose of 100mg week. On cycles you come off for periods of time. Big difference between the two. Get healthy first...bodybuild and up your dose later
