    Over 40 questions

    Ok just to be clear Iím not in any way busting balls here. Iím legit scared to death of getting old so I have questions. Iím assuming you guys picked 40 for a good reason. I realize everyone is different but is this age the age when you guys started to notice significant changes of some sort? If so what should I expect? Other than the usual shit like hair growing overnight in odd places and hair turning grey. Iím more concerned about major physical changes like the ability to gain muscle and performance drop off in the gym and the bedroom. Please donít sugarcoat anything. Tell me straight up what I should be prepared for so maybe I can take a few more steps to delay the inevitable. Thanks

    40 is about the age natural test levels really start to decline (hence all those commercials). For the average joe that doesn't know anything about gear, trt, etc it can really suck the life out of you. You'll probably be in good shape and barely notice it though. The rest of it is just life stuff. Injuries compounded over time, joint issues, sleep issues, etc. Knees and back are the two typical big issues for most guys. I've never ran gh, but the guys that do swear by it.

    Some other things I forgot. BP becomes an issue. Orals pretty much become a no-go. You *will* start caring what mast does to your hairline.

    Forgetting what you walked in a room for is an over 40 effect. Going from being able to knock off 5 girls a day to 1 is lame. How about everything on the radio is annoying af. A man's tolerance to stupid shit becomes intolerance.

    I always felt that the low to mid 40's were like your 20's with the money to get yourself out of trouble, 50 is the new 40, thats when shit starts going sideways. IMO..

    40 is OK- 50 and over all kinds of things become apparent but very subtle - gets tougher and tougher -but you need to get up every single day and work hard at it .Just keep smiling -working hard exercising and a good diet and you can kick ass on younger guys as you DO get wiser ~ almost forgot - lots of pussy also helps (-: great thread !! Thanks

    Im feeling things these days (55 soon), mainly injuries all over (joints). Back, knees, elbows, wrists. 42 of this lifting stuff will take its toll.
    Hair is starting to thin, not too bad yet. Still mainly brown (few grays).

    Numbers in gym have fallen in gym a bit (mainly injury related) but still trying to get back to them with smarter rehab/training.

    40 was nothing, I started to feel older near 50 (49) but when I jumped on TRT that has helped immensely. My main gripe is injury/joints.
    Im fine in all other departments so far...

    I really have noticed that joints tend to hurt more and takes longer to recover after training. Also things taken for granted when younger are now harder. In addition health also comes to the fore when getting older.

    This is what I know about 40+:

    1. Itís not hard to gain weight now like in my 20s
    2. Itís hard to piss
    3. All I do is piss
    4. My hair is running away from my face
    5. In my 20s I liked deca to put on size, now I need it to help me get back up from the bottom of a squat
    6. Instead of dbol and anadrol I take blood pressure and cholesterol meds
    7. I found a grey pube.....weird
    8. Is that a liver spot or skin cancer, fuck me
    9. Where did the hair on my shins go?
    10. There are days I would just assume to lay on the couch and watch Andy Griffith reruns than to bang the old lady. Ideally Iíd be getting a bj while getting my Mayberry fix but she doesnít appreciate it like I do. I know some of you have those days so donít lie you fuckers.

    On a side note, I should probably have a prostate exam but Iím kinda bashful. I donít even let my old lady check my prostate.

    No one over 40 has any competent doctors to run the proper number (there's about 15 tests) to get the real thyroid picture. And if they do they put you on shit synthroud which doesn't work. All this over 40 shit with cholesterol and bp is mainly hypo thyroid related from 1) getting older and 2) using gear which beats up your thyroid
    I take 2 real thyrpid meds 4x daily and i have no cholesterol issues as long as i eat reasonably decent. And my bp is good even on 1.5grams of gear a week. Donate blood ffs... its the best thing you can do for your bp and heart.

    I have to piss all the fucking time but i had the finger test and its normal and my psa is literally > 1
    Egfr is the one to watch.

    Iím 52 and didnít start noticing material changes until later 40ís. Just generally takes more effort to do things and recover. The pissing comments crack me up as I started to have to piss all the time last year. Went to Vegas last week and had to fucking stop 5 times. I can say one thing... Iím hornier than ever man... I have not noticed any changes yet in that department... Iím just starting trt too

    The age it starts hitting you will depend on genetics, health, stress, &c. I noticed it about 45 (51 currently) during a few years of high stress, crappy workouts, and unclean diet.

    TRT (maybe with some mild additions) helps a lot.

    Fat gain is easier and easier each year, and it's a bit harder to strip it off. I can't imagine dieting down to single percentage on one's own hormones after 40 -- too much muscle loss.
    Blood pressure is more a concern, same with lipids.

    Forget about keeping your hair -- once you accept the inevitable, and shave your head, all the DHT-derived compounds are yours to enjoy (unless your prostate is sensitive). I assume I'd be grey if I let in grow in but I've sported a shaved head for almost a decade, so the hair color is academic.

    I lift with more volume and less weight to keep the joints happy.

    Someone mentioned less patience for buffoonery -- 100% agree. After half a century of seeing the same idiocy, I no longer hold my tongue. Grumpy jacked old men rise up!

    Just turned 53..

    Started wearing "readers" at 46.. now contacts/ glasses full time..

    My forehead turned into a 5 head, 6 head so.. I now shave it all off.

    Low test..? Yep..

    Sex drive..? Different.. but still good. Just not on leg days..

    Taking BP meds now for 3 months.. having a hard time balancing gear with meds..

    Can you still take orals? Or only injectables.. love to hear anyone's thoughts.
