New to this BB board, been reading alot about gear for awhile and have been training off and on for a few years, only seriously for the past year and have been thinking about trying gear. Here are the results of my pre-cycle bloodwork (early morning test, no caffeine, food, or exercise b4
Free Test 12.8 on a 9.3-26.5 pg/mL range
Total Test 587 on a 241-827 ng/dL range
this seems fairly normal, except most guys my age have sig higher levels. I've always been a skinny bastard, a hard gainer, and have very little body/facial hair so suspected low test.
I'm 5'5'' 29yo 155-lbs, 13% bf
Despite eating a lot and working out HARD I make gains very slowly, and if I ever slacked off those gains would disappear quickly. Over the past two years I've gained about 10 lbs mostly muscle, but my gains have plateaued... and quite frankly I'm frustrated that my workout partner who I personally think I work harder and eat cleaner than continues to see better gains than me (he's a hairy bastard so I suspect high Test)
Should I look into trying other testosterone enhancing drugs b4 using gear? Our my Test levels low enuf that using gear could seriuosly mess up my levels (I was planning on using post-cycle therapy) and monitoring Test levels during and after cycle.
