Yes, that is one philosophy out there and I though it was beautifully articulated right here in this Testosterone for Executives page:https://www.peaktestosterone.com/forum/index.php?topic=780.msg7017#msg7017
I quote from the ABC News story:
""Chris Running, 57, president and CEO ... said testosterone was the fuel that kept him on top. He said the little vial he stores in the bathroom enabled him to run four companies at once, lose 30 pounds and gain muscle, and maintain an energy and mental sharpness he hadn't felt since college."
The same guys later said that it has helped him be successful and "I would say I look more ripped than I have since I was in college. I mean, I like looking at myself in the mirror. I look freaking awesome. If I was marketing testosterone, I would be marketing in the Wall Street Journal, Business Week and Newsweek and Forbes. I'm completely sold. I mean I will never not do this.""
So are there any cons? Well, here are a few to consider:
1. One expert is insisting that some men, particularly with clotting disorders, could be at increased risk for stroke:http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks
2. You can feel "wired" and "judgemental" (per Paul Zaks). I felt this when my T went up (accidently) to a 1400 peak. I was quick tempered at home, steriotypically alpha doggish.
3. You have increased risk of side effects from elevated estradiol and DHT (acne, gyno, E.D., male pattern baldness). This can require increase pharmaceuticals to control the side effects (AI's, acne meds, alpha reductase inhibitors, etc.), all of which have certain risks.
Let me know what you guys think...
