My personal experience and thoughts about TRT.

First and foremost, save your judgment of me for someone who cares. I want to provide my experience, and knowledge of what using testosterone can and can't do.

I'm 33 and have recently done a few cycles of test to enhance my weight lifting abilities. I don't participate in any type of sport or event, this was strictly for personal gain. The specific kind of test I did was Andropyn, a blend of different types of test. It didn't have noticeable effect on me until I had been using for about 4 weeks. I started to see strength and stamina gains, but nothing super impressive. By the end of the 8th week, I was noticeably stronger, and had the fire to lift weights for an easy 3 hours per day. At this point, no matter how heavy, or much I lifted, there was never any soreness. By the end of the 12 week cycle I was way stronger than when I first started the cycle. My diet wasn't very clean, as I was just eating a lot to try and get as big and strong as possible.

So in a nutshell the things test improved for me was strength, stamina, and muscle growth. It should be noted that I was taking 2cc a week of a FIVE test blend for 12 weeks, which is more than a prescribed dose for low T is. My brother-in-law was given a prescription for test by his Dr. after testing low for test. His dose was to be 1cc per week of a single type of test, test prop. He doesn't feel any strength gains or stamina gains in his weight routine. This is kind of important to not because this SHOULD be the type of test that is being prescribed.

As for my thoughts on TRT use in sports, I kind of sound like a hypocrite, but I feel it should be legal. Let me explain quickly why. If a fighter really does have a low T problem, I feel that it should be diagnosed by a neutral Dr., not the fighter's Dr. The injections should only be administered by that Dr., and only an amount to bring the patient up to the minimum normal amount found in a male of his same age, never any higher. The patient should have to undergo WEEKLY tests to ensure that his levels never exceed this minimum level. If the patient doesn't ever get above that level of test, he wouldn't experience the benefits that I had by elevating my level well above where they would normally be. I also want to point out that even with my high dose, I didn't really start to see/feel the benefits for almost 8 weeks, which is about how long a fight camp is. So even if the smaller prescribed dose DID give an advantage (which i don't think it would), it wouldn't be til it was too late in camp to help.

I'm not trying to sway anyone's opinion with this post, just thought maybe it would shed a little light on the situation. God bless
