    Heh heh, I bet that most of us (who *are* trying to be realistic) underestimate our bodyfat levels But coming within 2-3% is awfully close IMO...at least if you`re not already in the single digits.
    Yeah, Im excited about it!

    And trt/anabolics are a subject ive done literally hundreds of hours of reading about, because i find it fascinating. Ive been interested in it but wasnt expecting it this soon. Had a good conversation with the doc and he was impressed with my questions and knowledge, and everything i knew checked out with him. Ive read a lot, and talk to a lot of guys on another board on trt, plus follow some really good social media channels that talk really in depth about this stuff. I feel comfortable and really well prepared to deal with it at this point. So, yeah, im definitely excited to see how this changes things.

    jrock645- Man, that`s great, sounds like you`re all dialed-in on the subject.

    I`m guessing that you`re young enough that they weren`t tracking your T levels at your annual physicals; I only had mine done because of all the years of not making progress, trying to figure out what was wrong that I wasn`t turning into Arnold

    Yeah they dont check it at physicals. I had it checked 6 months ago and it was identical to the number on monday. Technically in normal range but very low for my age. Im 34 and have the test of a healthy 55 year old, according to their scale.

    Im a bit relieved. Nutrition and calorie intake on point and training very solid, getting enough sleep and not doing a whole lot of drinking and felt like i could barely make marginal improvement. Always holding belly fat no matter what. Seemed like it shouldnt be this difficult, but i couldnt figure out what it was. Now at least i know there was a reason, and presumably its being fixed. Will probably take a month to start seeing anything, as thats how long it takes to get to peak blood levels of test.

    Re: 2019 Health & Fitness Thread

    I wonder what a Fitness Tracker considers "Exercise"?

    Like...when doing my daily chores, I`ll typically do countless Deep Knee Bends (e.g., picking up sticks and pulling weeds for a few hours, and yeah I do stuff like that pretty much every day) and I jog up/down multi-level flights of stairs countless times throughout the day without even thinking about it.

    BUT..most people I know IRL don`t do much like that on a regular basis, let alone all the time. For them, those activities might indeed be exercise.

    No idea what my apple watch counts as exercise. Onviously, if i tell it im on the elliptical it counts that. But it doesnt count when im lifting. But it seems to count a lot of walking around at work. I dont really pay too much attention anymore. Those things are rarely all that accurate anyway.

    Heh heh, "healthy 55YO" gets the attention of this 59YO! But I gather that like a lot of things, it`s *expected* for the T levels to drop due solely to age.

    On the Annual Bloodwork, I had to give `em a list with things like that, stuff that they wouldn`t normally look at.

    Im a bit relieved. Nutrition and calorie intake on point and training very solid, getting enough sleep and not doing a whole lot of drinking and felt like i could barely make marginal improvement...
    Yeah, especially with the volume/frequency that you do, having low T could really be handicapping you.

    I bet that drinking less and getting better sleep go hand-in-hand. They do for me, I just sleep worse when I`ve been drinking despite never having hangovers/etc. from it..not that I don`t still indulge a couple nights/week. (gee, that reminds me that I haven`t had a beer for nearly two years!)

    Always holding belly fat no matter what. Seemed like it shouldnt be this difficult, but i couldnt figure out what it was...
    Heh heh, I bet we all think that at one time or another, but at least you have an *answer* to it!

    Will probably take a month to start seeing anything, as thats how long it takes to get to peak blood levels of test.
    It`ll sure be interesting to see how it goes!

    jrock645- Ah, that`s interesting about the Apple Watch! Gee, when I`m collapsed on the floor after a set of squats I`d be a bit [ticked] if it didn`t count that as "exercise"!

    And I guess I`m not surprised that it`s not all that accurate; I`ve never had a HR monitor that really worked *consistently right* when I was maxing out, finally just quit trying to monitor things and decided to just go by Perceived Exertion.

    Well, I wore out a Pedal Return Spring on the StairMaster...snapped while I was going full-tilt, which did get my attention. Oughta be a simple DIY fix, and I can get the parts for about half of what the repair place said they`d cost (never mind the service charges).

    That`s only the third time it`s needed service in over 30 years, and only one of those required Pro attention...best [darn] wedding present ever
