Bachelors degree in Business/ Marketing minor
No. Work in medical device sales (Orthopedic surgery). One part of my job is to oversee surgery and basically keep surgeons from fucking up. The other part is building a relationship with docs/surgeons. Through my job I’ve developed personal relationships with many of the top docs in NYC including Endos & fertility specialists.
Years on TRT:
Off and on since 23 but in reality mainly the last 2ish years and even then not that seriously
200mg/week 28.6mg daily IM (delts)
- Vit C 2000mg (Amazon). -morning
- Methylcobalamin 1000mcg sublingual B12 (Solgar, Amazon) -morning
- Magnesium Glycinate 400-600mg (Bulk Supplements powder, Amazon) -bedtime
- Melatonin 2.5mg (Natrol fast dissolve, Amazon) - bedtime
(28.6mg/day, 24 hrs after injection so both peak & trough)
TT = 1999.1 Free T = 36 E2 = 77 SHBG = 39.9
(looks extremely high but it’s not the same as taking blood on trough 7 days after last injection)
Tell us something about yourself and your knowledge level: I grew up in the poorest County in Mississippi and moved to the richest zip code in NYC having never been there. Became a top real estate agent at Corcoran and eventually did medical device sales on the side where I was in charge of all of Brooklyn, NY. After 10 years in NYC I woke up one day and restarted life in Louisiana to be closer to family and because I love the South.
My knowledge is based solely on my own experience and figuring out through trial and error what works for me. I read as much as possible on many forums before joining T-nation. I’ve found T-nation to be the only resource I use these days. I have a very addictive personality and when I get into something I go all in.
About 5 years ago I started having major issues with energy, weight gain, libido, etc. I eventually found out I had anemia which is one reason I was put on TRT. I became completely obsessed with figuring out how to get back to feeling normal.
I started at 220mg once a week with 1mg anastrozole.
• had major issues from the start
• crashed estrogen twice
• always felt worse than before TRT
I eventually stopped the AI and dropped to 100mg/week
• I increased the dosage by 20mg every 2-3 months
• I started playing with increased injection frequency (twice/week, EOD, daily)
• tried sub-q & IM
• supplementing vitamins, minerals, etc
I worked up to 200mg/week doing daily shots with no AI or HCG. It’s where I feel optimal.
• I found that using 185mg for two weeks then going to 200mg for two weeks & repeat keeps my libido higher than normal
Normal before starting to have issues. 167lbs (5-6 years ago)
Pre TRT after having issues for 2 years. 205 lbs (2-3 years after previous pic, right before starting TRT)
Post TRT 178lbs (what I looked like about 1 year after TRT)
Today (Jan 30 2020) (2-3 years after starting TRT) 187lbs
-for the past 6ish months I’ve been drinking too much & diet not great so gained considerable body fat
