Ep. 192 - Testosterone Therapy & Deloads

This episode with the team and I was sparked by a chat on the rise of recreational steroid use, which led to us exploring the pros and cons of testosterone replacement therapy, or better known as TRT, before diving into the signs of healthy hormonal profiles, the drivers behind them, and why deloads may play a useful part in it all. This is very much a fly on the wall episode where we touch on a ton of topics all designed to drive you forward your transformation!
