After digging through the boards, I realize that this place is full of some serious knowledge. I would love to hear what everyone thinks or see links to previous posts.
I'm 41 and have been inactive for a few years. Started getting back into it a few months ago. Working out about 3 times a week. 5'9 215 with decent mass but I should be at about 180. Never done steroids.
I tested with borderline testosterone levels and my doctor agreed to prescribe androgel. (Great guy) His recommendation is 5mg per day. I haven't started yet.
I know I don't want to be on androgel for life but I haven't decided exactly what I want to do. I'm thinking of doing a 10 week cycle of androgel and working out 3 or 4 times per week with about 30 minutes of treadmill 3 or 4 times per week.
I may do two weeks at 5m the 6 weeks at 10m then back to 5 m for 2 weeks.
The goal is to gain mass and get down to at least 190.
Has anyone done this? Any thoughts? All responses are appreciated.
