Overall good quality. In a caloric surplus now to gain muscle mass.
-describe training [some ruin there hormones by over training]
Doing starting strength program for about 4 months. 3X/week barbell training (big compound movements). Recently, I burned out am taking it easy. I suspect overtraining has negatively affected my testosterone.
-testes ache, ever, with a fever?
-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed
Not much wood in the morning. Sometimes nocturnal erections, but rarely.
Fatigue, brain fog, sleeping a lot, lack of productivity, mild depression at times but seem to be able to fight it off.
Temp has been on the low side during the day for last few days (96.5-97.5F), but I have not monitored it right after I wake up. I will start monitoring it more. I plan to take some iodine supplements.
I had a another test 2.5 years ago and the testosterone, serum was 475ng/dL, which was decent. I not sure what has happened since then. Maybe my body was hit hard with the weight training?
