I don’t want to sound like a troll, but I am serious, excluding the FEW who have a genetic pre-disposition to naturally producing low levels of testosterone (for whatever reason and have no choice but to seek treatment), I think its terrible that young guys under the age of 30 nowadays are resorting (or even considering the possibility) to TRT. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Going through college, seeing guys get pissed every night, avoid any form of resistance training, eat nothing but plain pasta and tomato sauce, sleep less than 6 hours a night, its not a surprise that many guys have tanking hormone levels before the age of 30.
Now, I realise some guys cant help it, if underlying genetic factors are to blame then yes, treatment is needed, but like obesity, its simply a case of needing to make better lifestyle choices. I have friends who have tanking testosterone levels but refuse to make lifestyle changes and simply seek TRT as an easy way out. I always tell them: if you cant sleep more, eat better, follow a high volume resistance training program and stress less, what makes you think TRT will make you any better!?
When I ask clients how much they sleep, how many hours they work and what they eat, I simply get answers like this: Yes, I eat healthy (in other words, no breakfast, a shit snack for lunch and some ready meal for the evening), sleep around 5 hours and work 10 hours a day behind a computer. Say what? Healthy???!
What do you guys think?
It might sound like a rant, but I follow this forum a lot! I find the underlying science of endocrine issues fascinating but it amazes me how many guys nowadays under the age of 30 are dealing with problems they shouldn’t be dealing with until 70.
Guys shouldn’t be walking around in skinny ass jeans from the childs section. They need meat on their bones, a packed nutritious diet and a full blown resistance training program.
