Hey guys, quick background. Im 27 yrs old 5'11 160 male, strict paleo moderate alcohol/caffeine use, train Jiu Jitsu 5 days a week and lift 2 days. Was curious about my testosterone and cortisol as I train alot and had some indicators that I might be overtrained.

Test results: Testosterone: 554 ng/dl (range: 175-781)

Cortisol: 9.1 mcg/dl

Looks like im good and in normal range but ive heard alot of mixed reviews on these tests. I did some searching around and some sites have 554 low for someone my age. Was curious if anyone had any insight? thanks

If you occasionally wake up with a boner, your testosterone is fine. Otherwise, eat more steak and eggs. Ignore T salesmen. That's all I got.
