I have been working out with a PT for about 6 months in order to increase my strength and size. I have always been really weak and at the age of 34 I decided to do something about it. I have been consuming the recommended amount of protein (150g per day), lifting weights 3-4 days a week and consuming extra calories to gain weight. I have gained 18 pounds or so and have definitely noticed strength and size increases. My PT has noticed the improvement however he thought that I should have progressed more rapidly so he advised me to get my T levels checked.
I received my test results yesterday and my total T was 534. The TRT doctor recommended either weekly injections or pellets.
Here are my questions:
1 - Is my current T level holding me back in my weight training goals?
2 - I do not have kids now but definitely want to in a few years. The doctor and I discussed this and I am still confused. If I start therapy, will simply stopping the treatment for a period of time ensure that I am able to have kids?
3 - The pellets appeal to me because it is a one-time insertion every 4-5 months as opposed to weekly injections. I would appreciate any insight for why I would want to choose injections over the pellets.
