Vit D, curcumin, fish oil and ZMA everyday. I’m 30 and priority 1 is keeping healthy joints and cardiovascular system.
I have a back that was trashed due to bad form in deadlifting along with a number of bad car accidents. My “70-year-old back”, despite the recommendations from the orthopedic surgeons to get a disc replacement, spinal fusion, etc., has gotten much better once I found that reverse lunges are the only leg exercise I can perform without back pain, strengthen my lower back also, and can still make gains with.
I mention my back because I bought Alpha Male recently to help with my T levels; I do alternate 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off with my pain meds. Knowing full well (despite the doctors assuring me it won’t affect it) that my T levels drop by the end of the 2nd week of a moderate dosage of pain meds EOD, I began cycling Alpha Male in every 2 weeks to do some reversal of the negative effects on my endocrine system.
No blood results, but after 4 months eating ~1200 cal surplus and no change in weight or strength, I had to conclude that the pain meds were doing something I didn’t sign up for. I decided to implement Alpha Male. It’s only been 4 weeks, but the scale has gone up by 5 lbs and so has my strength.
The meds are used on an ‘as needed’ basis at this point but hoping to have them cleared out of my system by the new year.
