Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) supplementation helps to have significant increases in muscle mass and strength and it is suggested to be taken twice a day, one right after you wake up and again one right before you go to bed (300 mg of starch or 300 mg of a high-concentration ashwagandha root extract). "Ashwagandha is a member of the family of herbs referred to as “adaptogens”. The term “adaptogen” is applied to a herb with phytonutrients that regulate metabolism when a body is perturbed by physical or mental stress, and help the body adapt by (a) normalizing system functions, (b) developing resistance to future such stress, and (c) elevating the body’s functioning to a higher level of performance" Here is a good newly published article about it. Examining the effect of Withania somnifera supplementation on muscle strength and recovery: a randomized controlled trial.. Besides, it is also good for anxiety
Please be cautious when experimenting with Testosterone. The body usually balances your increased T-levels with Estrogen, because too much testosterone can cause testicular cancer. There are estrogen blockers such as DIM that can be taken as part of your stack. Again, use caution and do your research on Examine.com. Look at the general ads on TV for law firms advertising their services, if you have ever used products such as Androgel etc. There is a reason for those ads. If the reason for your post is that you feel like you're plateauing, look for other ways to exercise. Look up Weider principles, get more sleep/rest, but be careful when you mess with hormones.
