Hi Gents and Gals,
1st time poster here, long time member on bodybuilding.com forum.

Personal stats:
Male 27yrs
6 feet tall
34 inch waist current
Below average hair on legs and chest, no hair on back. Can grow a thin beard.
Carry most fat on mid section around waist, gluteus and thighs.
No health conditions
2 superdrol cycles a few years back with nolvadex pct
Inital lab results in below post
Eat a varied diet with mixed time between bulking cutting using ketosis.
Ectomorph
Lift heavy compound movements 4 times weekly, train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu twice weekly, work an office job.
No testes ache
Morning erections fairly common with no issues with libido.

I got my blood work done a few months back and am interested to hear any opinions on my levels vs being optimized for muscle gains.

I know that my 'T' was very low, the blood work was taken during a week of strenuous martial arts (mma) exercise and after months of being in a Ketogenic state. Im leaning towards the low T stemming from a result of longer term Ketosis. (I dropped 22kgs).

Since my blood work was taken i have now gone back to bulking (for the last 6 months), im thinking that this may have improved my T and am going to get another test in the coming weeks. (put on 12kgs bulking, a bit of fat too)

Would love to get your thoughts on my bloodwork and thoughts on bloodwork that will be done in the future.
