I had my testosterone levels checked, and they were really low:
Test Name Result Abnormal Reference Range
TESTOSTERONE 22 L 241-827 NG/DL
CALC FREE TESTOSTERONE 0.3 L 6.0-27.0 NG/DL
I just had my first shot of replacement testosterone today (200mg), and I’m going to be on 200mg every two weeks. Should I just keep training as I normally would, because I’m just taking T to get back to ‘normal’ levels, or will I be able to make better gains if I adjust my training somehow?
According to the noob FAQ, I should post this info:
I’m 27 years old, 5’8", 115lbs. I squat 180, bench 140, deadlift 210, and clean 130. I usually lift three days a week, and have been doing that for three years. Normally, I only lift as something to do on days that I’m not climbing, and adjust my periodization to match the bouldering and sport climbing season, but I figure since I’m going to be on steriods, I might as well take advantage to try to gain as much strength as possible.
Everything I’ve read on TMuscle and online says I’ll be able to train more often if I’m on testosterone. If I could lift 3 days a week with my anemic testosterone levels, shouldn’t I be lifting more often now?
