Been on TRT for three years mainly Testopel. While all of you are entitled to your opinion Im entitled to defend my reasoning for using it for legitimate means. I would never classify myself as “silly” or “wacky” and before you guys jump on your moral high horse if you had true loss of quality of life and other issues that may be a result of low T, and saw TRT as a way to help you my guess is many of you nattys (lol) would consider it. I hate break it you but when I started to get my Test Pellets every 4 months, my paltry 420lb squat didnt jump to 520 while on TRT. Did it help me in the gym…well it helped me in all facets of my life it gave me energy but if you think that 6 months into TRT I was an anabolic chemically enhanced machine your sadly mistaken.
FTR My test was in the high 200’s I felt like shit, slept all the time, had trouble staying awake during the day, loss of libido and all that fun stuff. Alot of this was attributed to myself also being on psychotropic medication as well. My Test “enhancement” was monitored by a doctor while on testopel and generally was always in the 650 - 750 range…I know ridiculously high.
I also competed, all my competitions were done while on TRT in the above mentioned range, would I get a special participation award for competing at a testosterone deficit? Two Junes ago I injured my neck at my last meet, and have since been self injecting Test Cyp myself, and have not competed since, I changed doctors as the original was 70 miles away, the new doctor did not administer testopel and had all his patients take one 400mg shot every two weeks, which I wouldnt accept. so I started injecting small amounts EOD.
anyway…I can also say that I KNOW there is a difference between lifting weights while on a Therapeutic Dose of Test and performance enhancing amount of test, because I have been on my 7th week of 500 weekly of Test Cyp, and plan to run it for three more weeks. Why? curiousity, Its not like Im producing it on my own anymore, totally gym related.
So I know personally that lifting weights while on TRT and while on an enhancement dosage is a big difference. I certainly wasnt trying to hide it either, I made a thread about in the cheaters section. Some of the posters in this thread responded to me. My lifts still suck a cock by the way but my capacity is much better and my physique is a bit better as well.
But I guess what Im trying to say is just because a guy lifts weights and is on TRT doesent automatically mean he is on TRT for TEH GAINZZZZ.

Sorry Matty, didn’t mean to insinuate that everyone on TRT was what I outlined in my original post. There are obviously those (such as yourself) that are on for legitimate reasons and enjoy what TRT was designed for. Glad you got something positive out of it. 'Melo still sucks.
