First post. Read a lot of the stickies …
Lifelong athlete and collegiate baseball player, I spent age 25-37 of my life as a cyclist competing at the highest amateur categories (never a paid pro). I am 6’-5" and weighed about 190 lbs when I gave up cycling competitively last fall. I decided to play baseball again because I like training, lifting and preparing for a season. After starting some of my old workout regimens and with a lot more knowledge of recovery and body maintenance, I managed to get my weight and strength up. Sitting at 235 lbs. now. It took a while for my brain to kick the “eating disorder” mentality that comes with endurance sports (constantly trying to be light).
I noticed a lot of fatigue, low libido and depression so I checked my T levels with my PCP and found that I am 270 TT and 51 free T.
Anyone gone through a change like this? At 38 years old should I consider TRT? Too soon?
Should I be on Anastrazole out of the gate or do you just run T alone at first?
Open to advice and recommendations.
