    Relapse...sort of...but not giving up.

    I used to smoke about 48 roll your own cigs a day.

    Yesterday 15, today 14...I'll get to zero again.

    This time I'm staying at zero and not backsliding.

    You say you can't afford to get your hormones tested, and I know I personally sent you a link to where you can get it done for about $60.

    Yet you take all these supplements + vitamins you have mentioned in other posts that you even admitted are kind of expensive.

    The best natural supplement I have found for low T is fenugreek. Or at least it works well for me. Plus it's dirt cheap. It just so happens that I ran out and did not order more. But I also had a sore throat and diarrhea for two days. Pretty much recovered now.

    Fenugreek
    This is a herb that is often found in curries in southeast Asia. In a study, free testosterone levels were improved by up to 46% in 90% of the study population. I use NOW brand.

    Tongkat Ali
    This ingredient is an herb from Indonesia, it has been shown to increase testosterone by 37% and also reduce cortisol levels by 16%. I use NatureBell brand.

    I'm still getting stuff together for my first test cycle...but until then those are the only 2 that interest me for test. Well Zinc too I guess. But I take that with magnesium to recover from workouts. For zinc I use Country Life and for magnesium I use Life Extension.

    Rhodiola
    An adaptogenic herb that has been shown to improve symptoms associated with chronic fatigue and stress-related burnout. I use NatureBell brand.

    Ashwagandha
    This testosterone boosting ingredient is an herb that reduces the effects of stress on the body and lowers cortisol levels. This is important because cortisol can be a real testosterone killer. Keeping cortisol levels down is essential for boosting test levels. I use NatureBell brand.

    Other than that a good vitamin B complex will lower stress/cortisol and give you energy. Recommend to look on Labdoor for best ranked stuff. There's a lot of bogus shit out there. I use Country Life for B complex.

    After following you since you got here, I've seen you spend (easily) 100's of dollars on supplements. Don't make me talk about the price of cigs...lol

    No vitamin or supplement is going to affect your mood or ability to gain muscle mass and recover, like testosterone will.

    I'm currently on a TRT dose dose of Test at 80mg / wk, using a 20ml, 200mg vial of Test that cost me $55. It keeps my testosterone in normal range, and this vial should last me 50 weeks at this dosage. There is no supplement cheaper that will come close in terms of cost or effectiveness.

    I'm not saying you need to be on testosterone, but I am saying that getting your hormones tested like Jin suggested, is a no-brainer.

    If you are low, and you fix it, it could be a game changer for you. And if you are low you don't have to worry about buying PCT stuff, you just stay on.

    Just something to think about.

    Well...that's a good observation. But planning to order test next month...it was $78 last I checked.

    The arimidex or altraz I ordered last month cost me $75.

    The month before that I got the nolvadex, clomid, and HCG.

    Many of the supplements I buy only 1 or 2 per month, depending on price.

    Have not bought tobacco in 2 months, what I have now is leftover from when I was a chain smoker.

    Even then roll your own cost me about $50 to $60 a month, depending on how many bags of tobacco and boxes of filter tubes I needed.

    There are other things I have to purchase every month also...like coffee for example $40 to $42 per month.

    Buying all my Muscle Feast next month too...getting low on protein and carbs.

    Part of why I have not gone to get tested has to do with mask mandate which is the same reason I do not go to a gym.

    I refuse to wear a mask because it's total bullshit and doesn't protect you from anything.

    But they lifted the mandate in my state now so I can pretend to be a normal human being again.

    I no longer use Ashwagandha or Rhodiola because I do not have any cortisol or stress issues.

    Fenugreek is less than $5 and is something you can use to recover faster from a cycle.
    https://www.amazon.com/Supplements-F.../dp/B00772D3C6

    Tongkat Ali (aka longjack) $18.95 gave me too many boners! Ran out and will probably hold off on that for now too.

    I bought most of this stuff before even considering whether or not to do a test cycle. So I figured out what works and what doesn't.

    My current list of supps I still buy is 10:

    Creatine - for muscles
    Fish Oil - for joints
    Glucosamine - for joints
    Magnesium - for recovery
    Oats - for carbs
    Vitamin B Complex - for muscles and energy
    Vitamin C - for energy
    Whey Protein Isolate - for muscles
    Whole Food Multivitamin - for energy
    Zinc - for recovery
    Will work for test.

    Ok, well just promise me you will get a baseline level drawn before you eventually start pinning test. It's really important to know where your natural levels are before you start.

    Yeah if you look back in my log you can see that I already promised Jin I would. Just need to make sure I order the right test...

    I need a bodybuilding psychiatrist!

    There are too many lifts I want to do. Not enough days in the week.

    Never content with any program because I always feel like I didn't work some muscle enough.

    I don’t have an MD. Would you settle for a bodyguard psychologist?

    Just rotate exercises every 2 to 3 weeks so you don't get bored and you get variety.

    This happens to me all the time. Especially with accessories.
    accesories are where I feel like I lift well and probably the body parts I care about more. But they aren’t main lifts.
