    Forgot to post my awkward gym moment. On squat day I walk to the gym with shorts underneath my sweat pants. When I get to the gym I take off my sweat pants and converse and put on my oly shoes at the entrance of the gym near the cardio but where all the womens are. Wasn't thinking right and for some reason I thought it was squat day even though it was push day. Took my sweat pants off at the reception, dat feel when no shorts underneath and erryone like why fuck you getting naked.

    Interesting how the TV shows of choice here have a lot of overlap, but I guess it should be no surprise - a handful of shows strongly target the "rhet" demographic.

    Upon returning my extra 501 STF's, I figured I would try on some of the preshrunk stuff, and was surprised that they didn't fit correctly. I could size up and cinch the waist down with a belt, but I expected better. I am sure there is more shrink left in my STF pair, but the waist to thigh ratio is completely different than the preshrunk stuff which is why the STF's work. This all surprises me as I always thought 501s were the "big leg jeans" and I am just not that big at all. 508's were also goofy and overly tapered.

    What are my options?

    As far as eating plan, I really don't have any diet plans, I do try to eat healthier, I try not to buy sweets and candies because I know that I will not take a place an opportunity, my relative actually allows a lot because they have pizzas evening weekly, and a chinese food every evening.

    oh yeah cool, go ahead and shut down your system and risk never producing your own test for a measly 150mg

    150mg a week would be a pretty standard TRT dose, natural production is around 40-50mg a week. Test enanthate is like 72% test or something then since you probably won't get pharma grade and even if you do your only getting like an extra 50mg of test a week. Most people cruise at a minimum of about 250mg EW, would not bother with 150mg. Didn't even know you could get TRT through the NHS.


    Hit someone in the balls today with a dumbbell accidentally, was warming up for lying rear delt flys and someone walked by as I lifted and I smacked him right in the balls. Naturally I finished my set. I got a sickening PR of 6kg for 15 reps though. Also I luv dat feel when you find an exercise, which works really well with your body. Usually I hate doing curls because I get beasty wrist pain, but the ez bar just feels kind of shit. Did alternating hammer curls pulling my elbow backwards, dat contraction man, feels orgasmic.

    yeah i was only thinking of 150mg as a replacement dose, to see if it helps with fatigue. I would go with about 400mg for a cycle. If i cycle and my natty test is low then the gains arent gonna stay, i guess i need to get some blood work done one way or another but i hate going to the doctor and trying to get them to do anything.

    Was considering it, but these gains from actually doing a hypertrophy program and eating huge amounts are already significantly better then I was having squatting fuck loads of times a week and heavy as fuck. Don't feel the need at all right now. New stretch marks errywhere. First time having them on my arms, looks kind of gross, but I gain more utility from bigger arms then aesthetic skin. The glam work feels good, when I do eventually get bored of this or plateau and go back to more powerlifting style training i'm gonna keep most of it in, elbows feel better, shoulders feel better, posture is slightly improved probably because of the 3:1 ratio of pulls to push, and my hips feel much better, but thats from lifting much lighter not from the higher rep work, but then again high rep RDLs are putting mass on my hamstrings, which I think is good for hip and lower back health.

    it's really not that huge a cost going out of pocket if you need to get it done.

    Got a friend who wants to get into lifting after seing how apparently fit Daniel Craig (wtf) was in Skyfall.

    Anyway, took him to the gym today and let him do some push and pull exercises to see what level he's at. He had never done any weight lifting at all before. Never benched, never done pull ups, no curls. Nothing. Obviously he had massive problems with form and overall control of the movements. Couldn't push straight up when doing DB bench press, wasn't close to locking out overhead on shoulder press and could only pull his arms halfway up to the waist on DB rows.

    He's good with sticking to routine's though, and is a great runner and with bodyweight stuff as push ups and sit ups. I've teached him a fair bit about food, what to eat, counting cals, etc. I want to put him on a real lifting routine from the start, but he also wants to continue with the cardio. At least until he realizes he will get better results with lifting in shorter time.

    I'm thinking about putting him on IA SPBR but on a two-split (he's still a bit sceptical about lifting and loves cardio), getting through the 4 workouts in two weeks. Will complement this with a fair bit of full body mobility work, since he really needs it. When he seems to have gotten the basics and form down, he will transition to the regular SPBR 3-split.

    Sounds ok, or just put him on SS (he's kind of scared of the compounds lifts, though)?
