I’ll be 40 this year and I’m seeing already some of the negatives of my age. With some short breaks I’m training for almost 20 years. Before when I hit a plateau I always managed to brake it, but now it doesn’t work anymore. The recovery time and hypertrophy are getting worse. You get my point.
I’m looking for a short AAS cycle, which will boost my training and give me some freshness.
The excellent guides here and discussions are mainly targeted at age groups, which does not have problems to restore the natural T production.
In all my research here, PubMed and all other resources only two groups are used athletes or elderly men.
Only William Llewellyn suggests that Turinabol should be used by older athletes.
What would be a good cycle for somebody at 40 (no AAS use before), which will not damage my already declining natural T production and produce some moderate results. I would rather favor some short cycles I have seen here discussed.
I am 39 and had felt the way you do in the begining. I wonder how long have you been training on you recent comeback. I rarely feel much soreness anymore. I think its important to stay steady on course. The only time I get sore is when my schedule keeps me for working out. If I miss legs for 10 days, I KNOW I will be hurting for the next two days and will need 3 days recovery at least. I do what ever I can to stay on schedule so I dont get sore. Only injuries have kept me from plateaus. In three years I have not went more than 2 weeks without a gain in strength. At our age personally I think we are actually powerful enough to injure ourselves.
I turned 40 relatively recently and it was no big thing. Just a number… not unlike debt But anyway, I have the same experience as you with respect to the rarity of soreness. On those sporadic occasions when I do get DOMS though, it sets in ~30 hrs later, rather than the 48 hrs or so later that it did when I was a bit younger.
Injuries definitely increase with age unless one starts to gradually adjust rep ranges and rotate exercises wisely. Ligaments degrade over time, so there’s less room for error.
Cycling is no big deal provided you’re in good health and are able to train hard & eat well. Test is the best as DH advised. There are some mild orals, but I’d definitely go with the test.
