In this episode the Crew dials the voicemail to answer a question from a loyal Power Athlete Radio listener:

Hey guys, this is Shirley. I’m calling to get your thoughts on testosterone replacement therapy for the over 40 athlete given multiple iterations of blood work showing Low T. Even with good sleep. And lifting dialed-in. Thanks. Look forward to hearing from you.

The Male Check Engine Light

Bloodwork, Low T, and understanding Testosterone Replacement Therapy. Power Athlete is a huge advocate for getting bloodwork tests done and knowing what is going on under the hood of the human body. But, what happens when you receive bad-news from your test about your Test?

In this episode of Power Athlete Radio, John Welbourn drops knowledge on what males need to look for in their bloodwork, biomarkers for Low T, and what questions to ask your well-intentioned doctor recommending Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). The Crew also explores how to decide which nutrition, training, and lifestyle adjustments can be made before going to the creams.

    “Next step” question, I’m a newer listener to the podcasts, but I couldn’t find this answer on the website. So where does the average Joe go to get a micronutrient test or legit hormone test? Are there good online (and affordable) options? Love the workouts and knowledge bombs you guys drop, keep up the good work. Thanks in advance!
