    It drops in segments. Some things you retain longer than others. At 30 I could fight into the finals at national level. At 35 you could train at elite level camps. At 45 I could still travel around the world and walk into any dojo confident. At 53 you could still squat 315 for 22 reps. At 57 Squating requires way more ancillary work for half the weight. At 35 knee pain limits activity. At 45 back pain comes into fore. At 55 training style shifts dramatically. Health becomes more a priority. Downsize happens. Muscle memory comes in more and more to play. Volume becomes more valuable. Stretching and activities to maintain athleticism increase in importance. 60s come and you look better than you should and people are impressed and confused. You have a little stash of PEDs that work really well for you even when your health markers are in line. Ignoring people that annoy you becomes easier. You become selective to whom you provide your opinion. You know what works. You know your mistakes. You know the path. You don't care about opinions so much. You have success in other areas. You really appreciate music that is 40 years old. You realize the best women are not the hottest. You feel fortunate for the old days. You know you are still a badass. You know you are part of a brotherhood. You revel in the house of pain.

    I hit 50, and I realized I was a strong, but fat fuck. And I was getting fatter no matter what I did. Low T, TRT and you know the restÖ.

    Around 48 I noticed a definite slowdown but kept pushing and started TRT and found this group. I definitely have made better gains in 4 years than I ever have. The best part I finally have found my abs. Iím no Greek god but Iím pleased that I can take my shirt off and not be embarrassed!

    I've started slowing down at 50...but still kept plugging away even at 57 now.

    ^ Metric shit ton of wisdom here.

    So yeah, somewhere in my early to mid 40's was my downturn. Got my test checked and was a paltry 93. Got to researching trt, stumbled across this site (so much more valuable information than anywhere else), and the rest is history.

    Late 40s is where I really noticed but I have some serious health problems that contribute.

    Genetics determines much of how you will age and everything else is far behind.

    Treat yourself well as you get older and you will do well, abuse yourself and it will be worse.

    In my 60s and I can say I am certainly not the stud I was earlier in my life but when it comes to heavy lifting at work I'm the first one they call on.

    I look better than any other crew member and some are in their 20s. Besides the superficial part of it I still feel great and weight training will hopefully be part of my life until the end.

    Well thanks to all of you for replying. By the sounds of things I shouldnít make plans to take the bridge just yet. Hell I may have another 20 good years although I definitely didnít pamper my body so far.

    Ok so sorry to go here and again this is a serious question. What about the sex part? Other than maybe having to take the blue pill are there any other changes I need to start preparing for? Iím assuming your mindset changes at some point where you could care less about this shit? Hopefully anyway.

    There's no dirty old men where you live? Weird.

    Yeah, when my test was super low, then sex was a bit like taking out the trash. I did it once a week because it needed it. As many guys are on trt any more, it's really up to the individual if they go quietly into the night. Personally, I'll be pinning until they stick me in the nursing home.

    A lot of members are going to call bullshit on me. Having said that me and wife are having best sex ever.

    TRT obviously helps but don't forget the HCG. It's like you are blasting the sex drive is so good. HCG for testicular health plus volume of sperm for a much more satisfying orgasm.

    I wouldn't change this for anything, I have found my nirvana with this combination.

    Cialis is best, slightly harder erection but nothing monumental. It's worth it but not a game changer.
