Life hit hard and I found myself in the middle of a million things that needed to get done. So I skipped working out for the most part and watched my strength and energy levels tank faster than I thought they would. Did I lose weight / muscle mass too? Who knows, but before I kick things back into high gear I think this is the best time to finally get some blood work done...

    hey Scott, i agree with your argument about not depending on outside sources with your life and performances. I'm also -without a medical reason- against the use of ped's. but i want to know what do you think about caffeine use? it's also considered a drug, it increases performance and it is addictive.

    For natty bodybuilders, caloric deficits will lower testosterone more than anything. Your testosterone could easily be HIGHER after not working out for several weeks.

    When I went to Massachusetts (I bet I spelled that wrong sorry) for the first time last year, people asked us where we were from because we sounded sort of local and sort of not. I am Australian and I had never realised that we actually sound a bit like a Boston local sometimes! I don't quite say "cah" instead of "car" but I am a lot closer to it than I realised. Which is great, because that was my favourite state to visit so far. But I only just noticed that you sound similar when I read some comments. Too funny. Thanks for the videos :)

    Your still too young Scott. I never wanted to have to take a pill every day for the rest of my life just to keep my blood pressure normal. Once we get older, having to take drugs to keep our bodies functioning is just one of the things we have to accept like receding hairlines. When you get a little closer to 60, let's see what you have to say on the subject.

    Hey man, I’ve followed your channel for a few years, and I like it. I rarely comment because I rarely comment to videos in general. Yesterday I made the very first comment on a video (this video), asking about how to regain strength after a COVID-19 infection. The comment was deleted, I suspect you flagged it and think I am a troll. My comment was legit. If you’re not interested in such questions, then I’ll gladly follow someone else for fitness advise.

  77. Fernando Javier Uribe Romo

    Fernando Javier Uribe Romo2 months ago

    Also, apologies for coming across too belligerent. Believe it or not, covid also messes with one’s head as well. I do like your channel, you have a great body, a lot of knowledge and a good attitude, I follow a lot of your advise. I am a scientist, and everything you say regarding fitness and nutrition makes sense from the point of view of the science. And Goku is super cool

  78. Fernando Javier Uribe Romo

    Fernando Javier Uribe Romo2 months ago

    I’ve been training at a gym for 2 1/2 years now (37 yo, former swimmer in college). Go every weekday religiously, following a program of compound exercises with constant progressive overload. I live in Florida, so while the gyms were closed in the lockdown I was able to stay in shape at home (have barbell bench and some weights), but went back when they reopened in June. In late October I caught COVID-19, and the infection lasted about 2 weeks. After that, I find myself unable to do any exercise. I get exhausted after 5 minutes of yoga or body weights and lost all my strength. Lost 15 lb of body weight (body fat percentage didnt change much, 13%). After a month, I find myself unable to get back to the gym, both due to exhaustion and lack of strength. I used to be able to deadlift 265 lb (at 80%1RM), now can barely lift 95 lb a few reps. It seems COVID-19 has a lot of neuronal effects beyond losing smell and taste, and affected my ability to exercise. Really scary, I don’t wish these symptoms to anyone.

  79. ScottHermanFitness

    ScottHermanFitness2 months ago

    hey man, if you have been following me for a few years why would you jump to such a terrible conclusion that I am the kind of person who would delete a comment from someone who is asking for help? I think that is a very shitty thing to say to someone like me who has been helping people for 10+ years. Now with that out of the way, can you be more specific? Are you going to a gym, training at home? Whats the deal? I can easily help you out!

  88. Gary Douglas

    Gary Douglas2 months ago

    Most people have no idea what THEIR T level is naturally. They use TRT to raise their T level, nor to REPLACE what was lost. Those interested in T levels and many other chemical levels, should get a series of complete blood work exams over a period of time during their mid 20's. The median of those complete blood workups will establish YOUR INDIVIDUAL natural level of testosterone and everything else. The medical ranges of "normal" are so vast that they are almost meaningless when applied to an individual.

  89. Elena Pastorinni

    Elena Pastorinni2 months ago

    Yeah im in my 40s, and the endocrinologist make me do 6 months of blood work before putting me in T Replacement and my levels were under the level of any normal male in various ranges from labs. But im not in the US, it seems that in the US they put you on TRT very quickly.

    This is funny. Scott claims he didn't work out. Then he discusses going to the gym for only 30 minutes every couple days. Then he shows video of him shoveling rock and hauling rock to be placed around his house, followed by a story about digging trash out of his lawn after working on his pool. He got exercise, just in a different form than usual.

  92. Gary Douglas

    Gary Douglas2 months ago

    @ScottHermanFitness @ScottHermanFitness True, I suppose your yard efforts might qualify as active rest, deloading, or even cardio if you shoveled fast enough for sufficient time. But agree you probably never shoveled to failure.

  93. ScottHermanFitness

The symptoms were never really there, I had a mild fever for a single day and that's about it. The only thing that differed was I had to drop down from full body 5 days a week to full body 4 days a week, covid never really affected me that much tbh

    I’m 41 and just stahhhted TRT in March of this year. 150mg per week. It’s been going really well. My recovery and motivation are noticeably better. I have a full time job and 3 kids. Stress levels are high most days. Sleep could also be better. I feel like TRT has at least helped me to override some of these aspects that were holding me back from making gains in the gym. Sometimes I wish I didn’t pursue TRT but the gym is my life outside of work and family and if it’s going to keep me going then I have to accept that.
