Can you handle

So most people on this site have cycled on and off for years. A lot of guys here are over 45 and therefore have moved into a middle age period of their lives. Some are over 55 so even a bit further down the road. In fact, judging by the topics here over the last couple of years it seems fewer of the veterans here really cycle hard all that much.

So I am wondering how the HRT/older crowd here are looking at their BBing/life/fitness life style. Let's say the case is that most of the vets started at a muscular size and then added 40-60 lbs of muscle over a decade BBing eating and using PEDs. Now here we are a bit older. Lets say you started at 175 and peaked at 230. Can you be happy now at 195 and muscular and lean on simple HRT now in your late 40s or 50s?

I like a very lean 220. A buddy of mine is 47, weighs 170 on a 5’6” frame and he looks phenomenal. Another friend and I both thought he was in the 220 range, even tho he’s shorter than us. Not sure if I could drop in 200s. I think it would really get in my head, thinking I’m too small...

roflmao,

yup..................

fwiw, my adult weight high 225 lbs, didn't like it
had started at 160 lbs.
first jump was 180, second 200, never felt good over 200 even at 6'1"
i have an x frame, thin hips, so a good natural v
for the good part of 30 years staid in the 180-190 range
my goal going forward now
my peak performance health numbers, 170-175, 7%bf

bloat makes me feel totally and completely like a wet sponge, both body and mind

I'm 5'6 and I started at 140lbs with the fat/skinny guy look and topped off at 202 and I felt like shit. Wasn't a lean 202. Now I stay at 150lb cause I compete at 154.5. Probably around 9-10% if I had to guess. I much prefer being lighter and for BJJ I'm at the weight I should be.

I hear you. I stayed lighter for a long time when I was competing. I competed at 156 for some time at 5'9". That sucked. Natural competition weight was 172. Eventually went as high as 230 after retired.

230 was as high as I went. A good weight for me now would probably be about 190. I'm about 205.

I've been basically TRT only for a year or so now other than a few units of leftover GH this summer. Hanging around 208lb at about 10-11%bf. It's a far cry from my peak physical condition but I'm a LOT happier and less neurotic now. Taking gear less seriously also allows me to take training and diet less seriously and focus on improving other areas of my life. Balance.
