Quiet Professionals and Low-T
« on: May 20, 2020, 02:36:49 PM »
I wrote this paper a few months back and thought some of our older members (like myself) may be able to relate and start a dialogue about training into our later years. It would be great to earn some of Dyel's product as well. Dyel is the only one I trust and have used for my TRT the last 5 years. Thanks, Chuck.

Chuck,

Been around a while and seen you on UM before, maybe even way back from XXL.  Anyway, you been around and I been around, maybe not as long as you :) but still long enough. 

Let me get this out of the way... DYEL is top notch and I agree with what you say about him.

Now... the SOF community is a close community.  I spent some time in Special Operations.  Stand up guys for the most part... (every family has a dirt bag here and there but I digress). SOF for the most part is full of awesome people. I went through SFAS, and some other A&S for SMU that I stayed with for a while.  The toll on the body for some was a huge sacrifice.  TRT became a part of the standard procedure for many and I am one of them.  

The problem I have is getting the lifts in like I used to while having the beat up body parts that I have now. My shoulder being the biggest issue.My back and my knee seem to get better and better the more I lift but my shoulder gets worse and worse.  

How do you cope with the beat up parts and still get the same results?  

Also... TRT was huge for me mentally.  What a difference when on vs off in my overall feeling!

Great paper by the way!

Thanks brother, it's good hearing from you and I appreciate the feedback.
I had to eliminate some exercises from my routine and always use super strict form or I risk injury. Definitely, no forced reps, etc. 
It's difficult coming to terms with the fact that I'm getting older, though I'm grateful to be able to train.
Be safe, Chuck.

This was a great article. TRT really helps mentally. I can say my training has changed for sure over the years. For me, I am not looking to lift the heaviest weight anymore and have had luck with increasing the time muscles are under tension. Sounds like you have a pretty bad shoulder. Mine creaks and pops sometimes, but definitely makes me train different and it's just a minor thing.

Thanks Cody, it really helps though I'm looking to ramp things up a bit and possibly compete again.
