Hello men (and ladies)
I am 44 years old and just starting back at weight training after a roughly 8 year lay off. The long layoff was the result of two very serious injuries, a life threatening complication from the second one that required a long term course of very nasty antibiotics. 18 months ago I had a double angioplasty to releive two clogged arteries in my heart. Don't smoke, don't drink, cholesterol was good....the cardiologist said it was very likely a result of inflammation due to the aggressive long term antibiotic therapy I was on.
Anyhow...my routine for now consists of 2-3 full body sessions a week built around squats and deadlifts. I'm eating roughly 150-200 grams of protein daily, mostly from egg whites, whey, and wild game that I hunt. My goal is to be a hard 190-200 lbs. by the end of July. At around 210-215, I'm also carrying more fat than I want. I'm not a hard gainer...actually I have gained very fast in the past but at 44 years I'm wondering if I should try a testosterone enhancer of some sort. I don't want to use any steroids or break any laws, and I am on a budget. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance and thanks for allowing me to join up. I look forward to learning more from you folks.
