So a little backstory, I’ve been training off and on since middle school. I played sports up until high school and did strength and conditioning classes. Despite being very good at sports and training every week, I never looked like I worked out or played a sport in my life. Even when I was at my leanest of 5’11 170 I still had a high body fat.
High school I worked out here and there off and on and graduated weighing around 185-190.
College I didn’t lift at all and over the course of four years I found myself at 6’1 300 pounds. I was depressed, had no energy, no libido, baby/fat face, etc. due to a lot of issues with my lower back I started going to my doctor and from there I found at I had low testosterone. I was 22 at the time and my doctor made trt sound like a death sentence so I found to lose weight and see if I could raise my levels that way.
Fast forward 6 months I had been hitting the gym 5x a week and eating relatively clean. I went from 300lbs to 245(my current weight) only problem is I look like I lost a lot of weight, but I still look like I never stepped foot in the gym.
So after finding a new doctor I retested my levels and I stilll have low T. My levels are so low that I literally couldn’t build any muscle.
So after 2 weeks on trt and my first week training for strength here are my numbers. How are they looking?
