I was previously a professional golfer and along the way I was fortunate

to meet some interesting people. After years of constant torque on my back, pain has taken over and a sedentary lifestyle kicked in. Years ago I played golf with a former Mr. Olympia competitor and he was well into his 50s. When asked his secret he responded "hormone therapy". I figured the abuse he put his body thru could be somewhat comparable to mine. I start in 2 weeks under doctor supervision.
Anyone have any input? Now I'm not referring to the muscle Miami Beach body hormones but rather to increase energy and burn fat.

I have a lot of transgender friends, and I know you are doing hormone replacement therapy for an entirely different reason, but just make sure you are working with a doctor. Testosterone is not something you wanna mess with on your own or via the black market. Artificial testosterone can have really harsh longterm side effects on your body. I don't know what kind of hormones you'll be taking it, and granted it's probably a bit different if you were born male vs transitioning from a female body... But STILL. I've seen unpleasant stuff. Work closely with your doctor, go...

To clarify: I know you are planning on working with a doctor. I mean don't ever think "Ok I got the hang of this" and then stop working with your doctor.

Yes.. Its depo-testosterone. I would have considered black market had my doc not prescribed it. Some things are worth the trouble IMHO.
Thanks for the input... From what I've been told it works wonders for the libido,  and even more importantly, overall well being.

I went on depo testosterone and at the time, never felt better. The training I did because of the extra motivation was great. I gave it my all and my appearance is much more to my liking and others
