I have now been on TRT for roughly 2 months (125mg Sustanon every 5 days, and 0.5mg of anastrozole every 5 days).
Week 1: I didn’t feel any improvements in the first week at all but obviously that’s not surprising. I did however experience excruciating tendon pain that lasted from day 4 to day 7.
Week 2-4: During this period of time it’s hard to say whether the improvements I was experiencing was just placebo or not however I do feel like i had minor improvements in my mental clarity and mental well being (what i mean by that is my brain fog lessened and I wasn’t experiencing so much depression or anxiety).
Week 5: A lot less anxiety. My joint pain that I’d been experiencing for about 1.25 years just completely went.
Week 6-8 (present day): During this time period I felt a huge boost in my sex drive and my strength in the gym has skyrocketed.
For you lifters out there: I had been lifting for 1.5 years before and I felt like I was getting no where despite proper training (6 days a week) and nutrition (i was lean bulking for that entire time). I had to stop lifting about 8 months ago due to needing an operation and I couldn’t start lifting again until around the time i started TRT (so 2 months ago).
After my 1.5 years of lifting these were my stats;
Bench - 82.5kg/181lbx6
Squat - 85kg/187lbx5
Conventional Deadlift - 165kg/363lbx1
Now these are my stats on the day I started back at lifting 2 months ago;
Bench - 40kg/88lbx5
Squat - 45kg/99lbx5
Conventional Deadlift - I didnt start deadlifting until very recently.
Now these are my stats today;
Bench - 75kg/165lbx5
Squat - 105kg/231lbx5
Conventional Deadlift - 135kg/297lbx3 (This is the only time I’ve dead lifted in the whole 2 months due to wanting to ease myself back into it before incorporating what i consider to be the most difficult compound lift).
My current body weight - 176lb
In conclusion I’m really happy with the improvements to my well being in general on TRT and very happy with my strength gain since being back in the gym as well.
