I've been reading some of the posts and trying to figure out how to get started. I want to get myself into better shape, rebuild some muscle and energy I've lost over the years. I'm 61 and have low T so I'm on prescription Test C right now, but I doubt it's enough to really build on. I'm 5'10" and weigh 210 about 30 pounds are flab, so I would like to weight the same, but lose the flab while keeping my libido alive and well.
One more thing that complicates things for me is that I don't have all my small intestines so I don't absorb nutrients well. I supplement like crazy and have blood work done every year to make sure I'm in good shape nutrient wise, but getting enough protein in can be difficult so I drink about 100 grams of Pure Whey Stack protein most days.
Amy suggestions on how to get started would be appreciated.
Thanks for the reply! I'm injecting 200 mg a week of Test C and that is putting my total test at about 750-800; not sure what the free test is, but I just had blood work done, so I should be able to find out in the next day or two.
I've been swimming laps for cardio and I like it a lot, but it's not doing anything to build muscle back. I'm going to get some help with a trainer for lifting, and I'm always eating high protein. I'll try the supplements you're talking about for a couple of months and see what happens.
Hmm, don't know about estrogen, haven't tested for it. Libido is fine since I started the T therapy; energy and libido sucked before that. Feeling good now days which is why want to try to build some muscle mass back. Slow is a very good idea, I don't think I want to tear or break anything; it might take more time to heal up than when I was younger.
Never too late to get into shape and live healthy. It will probably add a few years to your life. Its good your on TRT at your age, 200mgs seems like a perfect dose. As people mentioned above, keep up the cardio, lift some weights, and eat healthy and theres absolutely no reason you won't shed some flab and add some muscle. Keep estrogen under control, for libido purposes and also you don't want gyno if your sensitive to testoterone. But welcome aboard and good luck.
