It's to combat the drop in testosterone when you age. The goal of the therapy is to balance you, not give you super human steroid strength.

The bad part is, some get it under false pretenses and basically don't have a testosterone deficiency. At that point, they are just juicing.

I don't know each and every PED available. And I don't care to find out. If reporters really want to be on the same page with Floyd, just ask him straight up: "Hey Floyd, do you use performance enhancement drugs?" or "Have you heard of this drug called _____?"

Speak English.

Now if he says he doesn't know what steroids are then ok, fire away.

With all the environmental toxins, bad electicity, and processed food and all the additives, this can significantly lower your testosterone.

It's not uncommon for men in their mid 30s to have very low testosterone levels. Compounded with prior gear use, even an athlete who is is in good shape, with resistance training and a sound diet can have low test levels.

For an athlete who makes his living off athletic performance, this deficit can be huge since it's responsible for building muscle, recovery, drive... etc.

Do these factors have any negative effects on females estrogen? I see quite a few more androgynous, tatted up butch type these days, but that could just be my city. We're liberal and tolerant of homos.

I remember reading that the chemicals of birth control end up getting pissed out by women and then tainting our drinking water.

I totally agree.

I believe he's on TRT.

That makes sense to me, as all elite athletes should atleast know their test levels, and are advised to monitor them. It may not be their initial choice, but somebody on their team would show them the logic of going on TRT to maintain the optimal levels to keep their body in peak functional shape, and help with recovery, stength, as well as assertiveness and drive.

I don't think Mayweather is stupid and understands this.
