Repped you for that line, because as I said in my rep, I just laughed out loud reading that and co-workers are staring at me like I'm an oddball.

I'm not basing my opinion on what he looks like.. I'm judging him based on his previous failed test, and his ridiculous Sandusky-style responses to questions about TRT recently..

I sit there screaming "Just tell us if you did it or you didn't *******er!"

If you are accused of something and you didn't do it, you would just say you didn't..

It's one thing to do it, but it's another thing to hide it.

I agree wholeheartedly! I voted he is on it but don't care as long as he is within the limits and if they ever do a random test and he's still within the limits at all times, I don't have an issue with it. But I hate the fact he avoids the question like a damn panzy, grow some balls already, unless the TRT shrivlled them up. I just don't like the way he's constantly dodging the question becasue it makes him look so much worse.

Also, all the fighters who are bashing the older guys for using TRT, I would love to see those young bucks at the end of their careers in their late 30's or possibly very early 40's and see if they are still tooting that horn. I have a feeling most of them won't be bashing it as vehemently as they are now.

I knew a 40 year old dude that got on it from his doctor, and was lifting a shitload more weight in the gym. It has a bigger effect than most think, especially with recovery and growth.

A shitload more? Is that more or less than a boatload? Maybe it was because it gave him more energy and he worked harder.

I started TRT 6 weeks ago so maybe it's too soon to say but I haven't noticed any change in my physical appearance, I still look like the same aged football player that I used to look like. I'm still hoping though LOL

My levels were pretty low (under 300)

I try to work out 4-5 times a week which at my old age (55) isn't too bad. But I got pretty sick a few weeks back so I just resumed working out today.

My symptoms were I felt that in the last year that I had aged 10 years. Up until my 55th birthday I played full court BBall 3 times a week but the toll on my body was getting too much so I quit. I felt lazy and not myself.

I joke with my wife that now that I'm on the juice I need more sex. So far she isn't buying it.

For the most part I haven't noticed anything drastic. We'll see what the future holds.

I don't care if he shot up a kegger of steroids before the fight - it was worth it seeing Bisping KO'd again.

If he is on TRT then he obviously never deviated beyong the legal threshold, so no issue here.

I believe he's on it but is being a good boy about it and complying with the commission guidelines.
