Thanks for the reply! I’ve followed a lot of your advice on this forums for years (have been a long time lurker just never joined)
From June 2015 to Aug 2016 I was OFF of TRT in an attempt to restart my production. Unfortunately I never got my total T above 400ish and my free T was always at the very bottom of the range. I still had libido and ED issues. In the middle of Aug I made the decision to get back on TRT after 13 months of slow decline in strength, performance, recovery, libido, etc. and try SARMS at the same time.
I did labs to check hematocrit levels out of curiosity, since I’d rather be safe than sorry. (Not sure what effect SARMS have on hematocrit even though many claim they don’t). It was 51%. I just did a double red cell donation upon seeing that.
No changes in mood, libido, or energy levels though. That’s all been pretty good honestly.
As far as WHY I tried SARMS, I was just hoping to break through some strength plateau’s that I’ve been facing. They seem to be the real deal however. In just that one month I added almost 30lb to my bench, deadlift, squat, and went up in a few other minor things. I also went from 195lb body weight to 206 lb eating approx 3500 cal day. (I am a very active person. Working out intensely 6x week)
Prior to TRT my total T was 221 and LH was 1.6. Prolactin was not measured but I have no reason to think it was out of whack. I had suffered from low T symptoms for about a year to year and a half before I finally got it checked at age 25 and found out I was indeed low.
I can feel the MK-677. My sleep seems deeper and my recovery seems much better. I have not checked IGF-1, but typically I don’t get “placebo” effects. I’m a pretty big skeptic of almost everything…
