Might try a curcumin supplement for the joints.  I picked up a couple bottles from BioTest and it has helped me to the point where I can at least do light leg work now instead of no leg work.  I have used it more for the anti-inflammatory effects since my knees swell up if I over do the weights.  Might not do anything but worth a shot to see if it helps some.  I also bought some bottles of the Orgono Sports Recovery (https://supplementreviews.com/orgono/orgono-sports-recovery-supplement).  I am almost through one bottle taking 60ml a day.  Will give you an update on how it works for the joints once I near the end of bottle 2.

That is a loaded question.
I go to anti ageing Doctor because it was actually cheaper than going through a insurance doctor. ( high deductible )
Now at first my ins would pay for my script and it was 13 bucks I think about 28 bucks with pins and everything.

Now everything has got very pricey.
80 bucks for a visit ( every 10 weeks )
ins stop covering script now it is 78 bucks
I have to get labs done every 3 months or 6 if they are in within range and that is 140 bucks.

Now most doctors around here frown on test and if you get it they will only give you half of what he gives and I truly feel that would be useless unless you are like 70 years old. Even then they want to give you the dose I have every 2 and half weeks. ( my dad is on that through the VA )
He feels better but he is 70 years old.

There are a lot of cons to TRT but a lot of PRO's to it also. I will answer what I can to anyone.

Sumo is a lift improved a lot on pretty quickly. Still not anywhere near good numbers, but probably have improved on it by 50 pounds or so over the past few months. I have only done them consistently for the past six months, but I think I prefer them more than conventional now.

Nice deads Seavski
Any human can train with iron, but it takes a machine to destroy the iron

You don't need to be an ABSOLUTE FREAK in order to be strong, you need to work ABSOLUTELY FREAKING hard to become strong

Embrace the hate from others and make that your power to achieve the gains you love

225 x 6 x 2
135 x 10 x 3

Leg press
400 x 10 x 5 sets

Jump rope for 100 total .
It took me a while but I was able to start getting it 10 at a time. I will eventually get this.

Just reading about your jump roping got me thinking I need to pick that up again. I get unreasonably angry when I f it up.
