Hello all. After feeling the symptoms of low T for awhile now I decided to have my testosterone levels checked. The reference range of testosterone levels are 300-1100 ng/Dl and at 420, my doctor considered my levels as normal. Unconvinced, I’ve done a bit of researching on what the average testosterone ranges in men around 25 years old, which appears to be 692 ng/Dl. (I’m retarded and don’t know how to embed a photo)
I’m around 195 lbs, 11% body fat and in pretty good shape. My concern is that with such a low T level at the age where testosterone is supposed to be highest, the muscle and strengths gains I make will be insignificant. To be honest, my gains have really stalled since high school, where I was heaviest at 200, granted with more body fat. I’m on a 5 day split with two days of high-intensity cardio/week. Caloric intake is roughly 3000-3500 calories/day. I don’t heavily monitor macros, just make sure protein intake is over 190g and fat over 100g.
Can making strength and muscle gains be possible at such a low T? Or am I just spinning my wheels every time I lift weights… Appreciate it guys.
