    Assistance needed. Loosing Strength TRT???

    Ok,, here is my situation. Hope you all can help.

    41 yrs old MALE
    235 lbs
    Work out 4 to 5 days a week.
    3 days of cardio 25 minutes pr day

    I have been on TRT replacement for about a year now.
    Was at 1 cc per week and my levels were at 470
    Test levels are at 412 righ now at a 1/2 cc per week.
    .25 Arimidex EOD or E 2 Days

    Doc told me to cut down and that is why it is now 412.
    Now after blood tests said all is good and I can go back to 1 cc per week

    Reguardless I have been working out regularly and have been noticing my gains are Going DOWN not up.
    Was benching 315 10 times and could hit 375 twice. ( now 315 3 times and wont even try 375 and even 275 is becoming hard to hit 10 times


    Seated Over head press had been at 225 to 275 5 to 10 times
    now 225 maybe 5 times and yesterday couldnt go over 135

    Even Incline Bench has dropped from 275 to 225 for 10 or even less then that
    .

    I can't figure it out why I seem to be slowing at my strength. Bi and Tris ( no issues)

    Squats and Legs ( No issues)

    Back ( no issues except for upper Lat pull downs) was up to 5 45 plates on each side now 3 to 4 is max.

    Am I experiencing anything normal?? I am getting discouraged lately and that is not a good thing. Not on any other supplements or Pro Hormones. I do drink my Protein after work outs.

    Should I be taking anything as a supplement to assist me?
    I want to go up not down in gains and I do know age has some effects but I am healthy as I have ever been.


    All help is appreciated.

    If you have it post complete bloodwork. 412 is could be a low level depending on other factors and could be the cause.

    What dosage is your test per cc? 200mg/ml?

    And yes if you cut your dose in half your strength will go down.

    went from 1 cc 200 mg to 1/2 cc.

    OK, I see what you mean.So hopefully the strength gains will go back up now that I am back on 1 cc per week.


    Thanks

    Remember Tassy 200mg wkly is for HRT,not to put you in the anabolic range.Sorry but 200mg wkly aint squat!! Your gains will only go back to what they were at 1cc,you just dont hv enough hormones in your system to keep making much more progress.Now if you could add a little deca your gains would increase,and ur joints will feel better.
