In brief: NO
Stay away from the quacks who to sell HCG shots or thyroid preparations - they will only make you sick.
Although testosterone and growth hormone may increase muscles they do not help endurance in normal males. Talk to a real endocrinologist. If someone is pushing these products to someone who is not deficient in testosterone, growth hormone or thyroid report them to the medical board. See another.
