Randy Couture Discusses The Use Of TRT

Randy Couture is well-known for being one of the most gifted athletes to ever grace the Octagon.

Couture, who well into his 40s, won multiple championships at both the light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions.

As someone who knows what it takes to spend countless hours in the gym training, “The Natural” is a perfect person to get an answer on the use of testosterone replacement therapy. Couture was interviewed recently by Bryan Levick for MMA Frenzy.

There is such a fine line with all of the anti-aging stuff that’s out there now. TRT is generally something a guy does in their 40s and 50s when their natural production of testosterone drops off. There are other natural ways to boost your own body’s production without replacing it and it’s safer as well, but it still should be under the care of a physician. It’s a very fine and a very personal thing and there is no easy answer. An athlete is using his body to earn a living and entertain the fans, they want to get the most out of themselves, but sometimes they go too far with it.

Couture is currently set to star in The Expendables 2, returning to a role he held in the 2010 movie.
