    One could argue that at a total T level in the sub 200 range, that has already happened for the most part.

    I was never able to find any supplements that actually had an effect on T levels.

    From...

    Corwin1968:

    Your information is excellent. One thing to check, though. I am under the care of a urologist in his concierge medicine practice for about $200/month. I get all the same drugs as...

    Thanks. Confirms my suspicion that the cheapest way to better performance is to cut out calories and train more. Darn. It is so much easier to buy a lighter bike!

    Excellent analysis. This leads to a question I have always had. When considering weight, is there any difference between the weight of the bike versus the weight of the rider, all other things...

    What do you mean by "appropriately lean weight"? I have noticed that the more I cycle the lower my goal weight becomes.

    Is Peyton Manning at an appropriately lean weight? He is 2 inches taller...

    I have a scale with body-fat measurement (Tanita InnerScan 50), but I am not convinced the technology they use for body fat measurement works. It seems to be more a measure of my hydration. It...

    +1

    I was just discussing this yesterday. In the end the only thing that works is to balance calories in and calories out. Past fifty the only way to do that for me was cut out alcohol, sugars...

    Interesting discussion. So, a better way to evaluate this is the power measured on your power meter gives you a conservative estimate of the calories you burned. If it says you burned 1,000...

    Do you see this as being any different for the Garmin Vector, which measures power at the pedals?

    Looigi ...

    You lost me on one part. At the top you say 1 watt work rate = 3.6kJ/hour. Later you say 100 watts = 1500 kJ/hour. If the top statement is true, then why wouldn't 100 W be...

    You would think so. However, the article says the efficiency rate is remarkably constant and always close to 24%, regardless of the individual. I found that very interesting.

    True, but what most...

    Understood, but unless we've discovered a perpetual motion machine, doesn't the power input have to be the same or more than the power output (the difference being lost to friction, and other...

    I have always wondered how this all works. Would I be correct to assume the power measured on a power meter (assuming it is working correctly) is the minimum amount of power your body would need to...

    I am older than you, but I have some good info about testosterone to counter the myths. Sorry for the length of the post, but this is not a simple area.

    First, I am 56 and have been on hormone...

    A lot has changed since I last cycled!

    On one hand, my first bike was an all-steel behemoth. I saved for 6 months to afford it, and built it myself from components.

    On the other hand, my...

    I try to read all posts before responding ... but with 98 pages of posts I think I will bend that rule. :)

    My story is like one of the early posts. I am 6-2, 56. A year ago I was 250, 39" waist...

    Thanks! The Nonin also uses optical technology, but it has a finger-cup that jostles too much to be accurate during rides. The Adidas looks perfect, except for the fact that you cannot get the data...
  19. HRM for someone with Right Bundle Branch Block

    I just joined and did search, but didn't find an answer (sorry if I missed it). I have been trying to find a HRM that works for me for 3 years. I have tried Polar, Garmin and even a specialty...

    Greetings from Santa Barbara

    I just joined after reading a great thread found on Google. I was into cycling in high school, but am now just getting back for the last year into it as a 56 year old. I am looking forward to the...
