I have been lurking on these forums for a couple of years and am finally jumping in with my first post.
I have been lifting seriously for just over three years and have been working with a very qualified trainer online for the past 18 months.
In that time, I have seen my weight drop from 205 to a low of 172 and then to my current of 180. Body fat has gone from 22% to about 9%.
After going through a 3 month cut that produced the above results, I began a bulking program. I cut back on cardio and really pushed the weight and increased my calories (I eat about 98% clean). Unfortunately, I simply did not add any size or bulk. (I have posted an “after” picture above)
I decided to have my T levels checked and got the following results:
337 total and 6.52 free
This is down from a total level of 500 a year ago. I am 47 (almost 48).
My doc will (I think) agree to get me going on T replacement and I would like some views on how to best design a program. I have read through many of the threads here and know that I need to both boost T and control E. Are there other areas I need to consider?
Thanks in advance.
