    Hi!
    New “old f..ker” here. 48 yo, 6’2”, 230lb. Healthy, no prescriptions, or known medical issues.
    Bf%...faint four pack.
    Been lifting on and off for last 20 years. Last time I was on, was about 8 years ago.
    Not a whole lot to say,...everything is different now, trying to catch up, and figure out what is what now, and is there any research chems worth trying. If not, I’ll go back to AAS, since that is what I feel comfortable with.
    Goal: nothing special, I will not compete,...just trying to improve physique, gain some strength, and feel better about myself. Tired of feeling “old”, don’t want to deal with it, since I know that I can feel 10 years younger.
    Wanna say “thank you!”, for all good info that you guys are posting, it means a lot!
    Have to figure out what, and how much I am going to stack, been a while since the last “cycle”. I am open to suggestions.
    Thank you everyone!

    Here's my suggestion, go to the doctor and get a hormone panel. If you're low then get on TRT and live a fulfilling life. Otherwise you're pissing in the wind. Welcome to meso

    Plenty of 40+ folks here, including myself, that don’t compete, but want to live the best life we can while we’re here.

    Definitely get some baseline bloodwork done...check out the bloodwork sticky. You can get what you need for under $100.

    Once you get that done, start a thread stating what kind of goals you’re looking to achieve, and guys will help get you there.

    Why? Are you just against using testosterone as you get older?

    I look at it the same way as a chick taking hormones after menopause. It can help you feel better and remain youthful. Low testosterone means a lower rate of fat burning, etc.

    Man,I can respect anyone that wants to avoid hormone injections and bust their ass naturally but this gray are stuff is only going to screw you over. It's nothing more than wishful thinking and a waste of money dude, you're still going to screw up your natural rate of testosterone production. Don't look at this as OTC versus not OTC, just keep your eyes open to the bigger picture and you want to feel good as #1.

    I think you’re making some assumptions...let the guy warm up a bit here and get in where he fits in.

    My bad. I reread his post and see where he mentioned going back to AAS and he's playing catch up. I missed that, I just saw research chems mentioned. You stand correct man, thank you

    It’s all good man...practice asking more questions and responding accordingly. And always assume the person you’re chatting with may know something you don’t.
