I wanted to post this to see if this is a transitory problem. I workout 6 days a week; weights every other day and spinning on off days. About 1.5hrs on weightlifting and the same spinning give or take. One day rest. This doesn’t seem to be too much versus people who go to the gym every single day and lift weights every day (which I used to do without the soreness and aching). Now that I’m on TRT I’m sore and aching most days… especially in the morning. Just doesn’t seem right.
My labs were high at first blood test 8-12 weeks in (which are posted in an older post) so I dropped from 40mg EOD to 32mg EOD. Test Cyp intramuscular (mostly thighs and some glute injections). No other supporting TRT treatments. No drugs except for a little MJ at night here and there. No alcohol, diet is clean. 46M, ~155lbs, 5’10". My next labs will be done at the end of this month.
It could be the dumbells I’m using; it’s quite different working out with them and they put a significant amount of strain on the whole body. They’re adjustable and max weight is 50lbs each. Doesn’t seem like too much. Since the gyms aren’t open, that’s my only choice right now with an adjustable bench. But something tells me that maybe my Testosterone and/or estradiol is still too high. Not quite sure and I guess I won’t know until my next blood test.
Thank you in advance for your experiences and feedback.
