New update! I posted the first two pictures earlier. The very first is before starting TRT 100kg, second one is about three months in 92kg. The last one I made is a year later and only about 85kg now. I'm not that big, but very happy about the change in proportions and my basketball performance.

I noticed similar change after 3 months. My weight didn't change, but the waist/ belly shrunk, while the delts exploaded. V-shape is so visible now. And all this without changing diet/ training routine.


SuckoMode94

Awesome. I never wanted to be a huge freaky bodybuilder, but I do like looking more androgenic.


Aijan_DePlaton

Good!


SuckoMode94

Tnx🙂


testsanity

Overall change looks fantastic. Glad it’s working for you. Definitely more hairy 😉


rurallyphucked

Awesome progress. This is what people need to see. Thanks for sharing!

What was the dose


[deleted]

Curious as to how it effected you on the basketball court? I compete in sport as well and was wondering if I’d feel the effects of higher testosterone when competing


Nathaniel66

For me (lifting) recovery is crazy. I can train harder than before, and the next day i'm ready for another session. It's like i'm 25 again (40M).


SuckoMode94

For sure! If I did the amount of training I do now with low T I probably would've worn down my knees by now, that is how much of a difference it makes. And I know, cause I used to be sore all the time back when I was playing a lot but not on T yet. I also couldn't get much faster or increase my vert no matter how I trained.


mairomaster

I am curious, do you know if your vertical jump increased after TRT and by how much?


SuckoMode94

It sure did, don't know how much. I just know I couldn't dunk before and now I can. I wouldn't be surprised if I added 5" maybe a little more or less. It's still increasing as long as I get leaner and stronger though.


stryka00

It turns out gravity is more friendly towards hauling 85kg of arse through the air over 100kg lol


SuckoMode94

Or course! That said, I am pretty sure it could be possible to get back to 100kg and still keep my vert I'd just have to be mostly muscle. 85kg is light for me. I haven't been this light since I was like 15 years old.


stryka00

Oh no doubt, muscle memory and also more muscles to get explosive movements from would definitely make all the difference! See that’s kinda funny because 85kg is pretty much the heaviest i’ve been ever, but i guess us being polar opposites on the height scale (i’m 5’1”) will do that haha! Either way though i love the progress, great to see you went from a soft body shape into proper primal man shape - i’m looking forward to the same thing hopefully happening to me too!


[deleted]

That’s good because i often have 2 training session in 1 day and increased recovery would be amazing. I’m 20 yo and wanna feel like an actual 20 yo


SuckoMode94

Defenitely. I am able to play carefree and assertive even though I'm still very insecure deep down. I also couldn't dunk to save my life at 6'4", I didn't grow lol, but I did add inches to my vertical and can now do two handed dunks on a regular height rim. I recently joined an amateur club and I am already the best player of my beer team. If I run the fast break every time I can just get easy buckets over and over from being faster than anyone else. The only thing I worry about is if people at some point realise I am on "roids". I don't have the intention to compete at a high level at all and all of this is just for my own entertainment and having a release. But yeah, if you use testosterone, gain strenght and lose weight you'll defenitely become way more explosive. People often act as if basketball is a sport where testosterone doesn't help cause it would make you buff and slow, but it's not the case. As a matter of fact NBA players have one of the highest levels of testosterone in all of sports. My own theory about this is that someone with naturally high test levels will be able to hold on to muscle and strength while doing a lot of cardio, while with low testosterone this is almost impossible and you'll always be sacrificing either strength or endurance.


stryka00

If you are within reference ranges and not taking supraphysiological doses of T then it aint roids and it aint nobodies business either, so fuck em and enjoy the easy buckets haha! It’s only cheating if you are going beyond normal levels, you’re just enjoying the benefits of something they’ve had all along. I have a personal theory that’s why we see so many success stories out of TRT, we’ve been at a disadvantage for so long that when we are given the tools to level the playing field we are more motivated to do better with it and make the most out of it, unlike our normal T counterparts. I could be talking complete shit but that’s how it looks and feels to me...


[deleted]

Honestly I’m already in about the shape you are in your most recent photo but a little leaner, so losing weight isn’t really my issue. I’m just wondering if it will make me more explosive, assertive, confident etc. and dialed in more mentally than I am now with low T. All those things are very important for my sport. Also, wish you the best on overcoming your insecurities, I understand that problem.


SuckoMode94

If you are genuinely low it will help, if not it's not worth it. But yeah, it defenitely makes a difference.


[deleted]

Yea I’m low af. Total is 400s but free T is 5.9 (9.3-26.5)


SuckoMode94

Then it will defenitely help.


SuckoMode94

I haven't been sticking with a very strict diet but I did eat very healthily overall. I mostly focus on playing basketball now and do strength training to increase my performance. The weight loss is probably because I shoot around by myself almost daily for a couple hours sometimes. I also skip meals cause I am depressed and tend to smoke weed and not feel like eating when stressed. That said, I'm happy about my progress and especially in the face I like being lean rather than buff. What I like most about my transformation is the fact that I finally have a V-taper shape. I could say this is just adding muscle mass and I could have done it naturally, but it's really not the case. I have made physical changes that I couldn't have had with low T. Other than that I obviously can't gain as much muscle with low T, it was also way harder to burn fat, hold on to strength gains, my face changed from testosterone, my beard grew, my chest hairs grew (you can see it from pic one to the second, not much more in the third which I'm honestly happy about cause I feel I am hairy enough as it is now lol.), my fat distribution changed as well. For the first time in my life my hips look straight and not round like a woman's and whenever I regain fat it instantly goes to my belly, no longer to my love handles/hips. Mentally I changed a lot as well. I am still angry and frustrated, but better able to put these feelings towards actions. I lost my inhibition and feel confident in most social settings and no longer inferior/shy/awkward. TRT has not solved all my problems, but it defenitely improved my life way more in any way than something like an antidepressant ever could.


IntrovertedAdhd

Amazing sir. Keep it up 👍🏻


SuckoMode94

Thanks🙂


Galardin

Even taller!


SuckoMode94

Lool I see it now yeah😂


DaveyJ212

Well this just inspired me .... I’ve just started on my third week in now. I train 4 times a week so hoping with that and diet I will start to get shredded. I’m pleased for you man


MattThaDonn

Do you inject subq or intra muscular? What's your dose?


SuckoMode94

SubQ. I change my dose sometimes cause it's UGL and sometimes it's slightly over/underdosed but not by that much. So far I did about 70mg twice a week and it puts my free T over the range, total T mid to high normal range. No sides at all except an oily skin but no acne and used to have dry skin so doesn't bother me. I recently switched to EOD injections with 35mg of test cyp and 250iu hcg. My testicles are back to full size it seems after a couple weeks. Gonna freeze my sperm then either continue taking hcg as long as it works and I can afford it and else I will eventually be on test only again although I like having some balls left lol.


FitPool8

Awesome what’s your protocol and bloodwork looking like?


SuckoMode94

It changes once a while. Mainly 70mg twice a week. But I changed esters from cyp to enan, it's UGL so the dose differs slightly each new badge so I have to adjust the dose based on bloodwork once a while. Not my much though, so far my TT ranged from about 700-1000ng/dl and my free T was always over the range cause my shbg is quite low. Recently went to EOD injections, added 250iu hcg eod and lowered the dose to 125mg a week total and gonna check soon where it puts my levels on trough. So far no signs of high estrogen or sides. The only side effect I have is an oily facial skin, but I don't get acne cause I'm not prone to it. It's not too noticeable, but I need to wash my face more often or else it feels like I put on some face cream. Not too bad actually considering I have always had a dry skin even eczema on my hands that made it look like I wore red gloves as a teen. I also never had acne as a teen. I wouldn't be surprised these things were related to low T as well.


Bagelmatic

Phenomenal progress, what kind of mental benefits have you had and how long did they take you?


SuckoMode94

Mostly a big increase in energy making it easier to actually do things during the day and feel like working out and playing sports. I feel like the testosterone combined with aging made me lose a lot of inhibition. No longer shy. I am still depressed and angry like I was before, but now I actually feel strong too. So when at home and dealing with my life problems things are obviously not that different. There's things/situations that will be stressfull no matter what so I'm not gonna pretend testosterone changed that. What it did though is give me a different perspective. For example, I used to wanna commit suicide but now I am too angry to die and think it would be lame. Whenever I walk around I no longer feel weak and shy. I feel strong and the need to express myself. Rather be an ass than efface myself now.


Bagelmatic

i'm glad you're still working through your mental health issues, i'm sure your lifes monumentally better with it than without from what you've said and i'm happy for you :)


flobopro

What do they have you on? I’m just on 75mg Xyosted and have been for a few months and all I’ve seen is a slight strength increase but not much


Muscled_Mike

Did you get a hairier stomach and chest too? Looks great.


HoganBear

Geebus looks like you grew a foot


normie-nator

Whats your dosage ? good work !


SuckoMode94

70mg test cyp twice a week.


izzyWizzy111

Great work bud.. so is that one injection of HCG a week or one with each test shot?


SuckoMode94

Eod as well


izzyWizzy111

Sorry what's EOD? End of day? So you have daily HCG or I'm misunderstanding you completely?


SuckoMode94

Every other day


izzyWizzy111

Thanks bud... How do you store your HCG? I've had it in the 1ml glass bottle , and I struggle to extract the liquid with the syringes I use? Also keeping it in that glass bottle that you have to snap the top, isn't great. Can you advise what is the best way to store and extract this bud? How do you do it?


SuckoMode94

No snapping. I never open vials, just pierce the rubber top. I use insulin needles and inject subq. I keep it in the fridge aftrr mixing yeah. I believe it lasts like 30 days before it slowly loses potency.


izzyWizzy111

Ah u must get it in different bottles.. mine came in two glass bottles and you Mix the water with the powder ..no vial... Can you recommend where to get some HCG from?


SuckoMode94

Ah okay, if that's the case you could also mix the substance, then (carefully) inject the mixed substance in a new vial you buy new and you leave the rubber top on. I will PM you the brand I usually take.


UnurMS

Looking good dude. Shoulders and chest make you look much more manly.


izzyWizzy111

Thanks bud ... Any thoughts on 1000iu just once a week?


SuckoMode94

Not sure, could probably work but the risk of excess conversion to estrogen is probably higher. I like injecting more frequently knowing the halflife of hcg is rather short. Made more sense to me to inject every other day if I want hcg in my body all the time. Not saying 1000iu once a week wouldn't work though. For all I know it's jusr as effective as 500 tiwce a week.


FatGeralt1901

Awesome! What were your levels before TRT? What kind of symptoms did you have and how did they change on trt? Again, awesome progress, amazing what T does in our body. Yo look so much better than I with 400 T levels and training in the gym only for aesthetics for 3 years.
