I’m reading a lot of threads on this forum about Medical Research into hormonal patterns as we age and I’m also seeing a lot of posts from guys getting lab tests and asking for advice.
In regards to the medical studies, I’d like to know the characteristics of the control groups when they do these studies. I doubt that anyone in the control groups have spent any significant time in a gym let alone done compound lifts on a regular basis. Are there any formal hormonal studies that relate to the men who make up this forum? That is, men who spend at least 3 or more days a week lifting heavy weight?
I’ve never supplemented with T or GH and hopefully never have to, but if the time comes I’d like to have a good study to turn to as it relates to men who actually train and diet to increase their T levels. Hell, maybe I’m the only guy here that doesn’t shoot up T. That would be nice to know as well.
In regards to the guys getting lab tests, do you also train? If so, how hard and heavy? I’m a firm believer that heavy compound work and a good diet will help raise your T levels naturally. It takes time and its hard work, but the results are natural. I’m certain there are also situations where heavy training didn’t help boost T levels. Any insights on why that happens?
