Im going to try and make this short and sweet. I need advice as my situation does not seem to prescribe to the one size fits all solutions of running test. YES! i read the newb guide to their first cycle. it gave me a lot of background, but im still in search of the appropriate solution here.
im 27,5'6", 165lbs, dl: 405, sumo: 495, squat:335(atg), bench: 315. I feel like ive maxed out the genetic potential and now it is time to assist. i train using a progressive 10x(3,4,and5) program, where the number of reps goes up every week, ending in 50 reps of some heavy ass weight by the end of the month. I also throw in a 5x10 to keep the nervous system somewhat fresh. my diet is great, clean carbs and protein and essentially the only fats i consume are cocounut oil and the fats from meat.
let me start off by saying, im not looking to gain a ton of weight (muscle or not). i have shitty knees and a neuroma in my foot, so putting a ton of extra weight isnt really an option, otherwise i see age 40 being a motherfucker to the body. that being said, id like to wind up right around 175-180 lbs (add 10-15lbs). what i really want is my strength to go up. especially in the squat (looking to be able to hit 405 with a true full squat).
the problem is this, my hair isnt exactly sticking around for the entire show. i have read and read and everyones solution to this problem is go ahead and take the test and also take finasteride. this solution will not work for me; i started losing my hair a few years ago and went ahead and tried the propecia route. my penis STOPPED working. if you are unaware of this side effect look into it, it is very real. anyway, my boners came back after a year but werent what they use to be. it took about three years for my shit to work the way it use to. I will never chance this again (hopefully you can understand why).
so, is there a solution to this problem guys? maybe a low enough dose of test where the hair wont go running for the hills but still enough to make progress? im at a loss. so much for short and sweet. Thanks in advnace for any and all useful advice!
