-This Week: 30, 42.5, 50, 50x7 +progress -neg are killer

Rope crunches 3 x 20
-Last Week: 50, 70, 70
-This Week: 72.5, 72.5, 72.5 +progress

Incline curls 4 x 7-9 3 sec negative each rep

Short vacation at the beach with my son and my girl. No gym/no diet I caved.

7-19-2022
Vaca diet/training = derailed. I brought my prepped food, and then said fuck it, cheat day or so.
-----
7-20-2022
Son left, ate 1 meal, was clean. Steak & asparagus
No gym

Start back at it tomorrow. Which means Day 1 is a few days late. I wonder if that would be counter productive for muscle recovery to pull any remaining rest days to catch up on my schedule?
-----
7-21-2022
Day 4: -> Nope get Day 1
Morning weight after 3 day diet jump 204lbs, still down.

It's going to be 104° and my gym is not well ventilated. I will have normal daily diet, but ran out of eggs. So, just 1 cup oatmeal 45 min before gym. Then normal foods rest of the day.

Bench press 5 x 6 3 sec negative each rep
-Last week: 135, 155, 175, 185
-This week: 155, 175, 185, 205x3 (need spotter), 185 +progress @proper set count, added weight just want spotter to help push me

Close grip pull-ups 4 x 8 5 sec negative each rep
-Last week: assisted pull ups - 145x7, 135x7, 125x5, skipped 4th
-This week: assisted pull ups - 125, 135x6, 125, 125x4.5 +light progress, changed to better form with less shoulder stress, proper set count, finding baseline

Incline bench press 5 x 8 3 seconds negative each rep
-Last week: 95, 135, 135x7 assisted 8th, 95, 95
-This week: 95, 135, 135. 135x7 (need spotter), 135x4 +some progress -no spotter, could have gone to failure

Side laterals 4 x 12
-Last Week: 10, 13 left forearm pain, 10 forearm pain, 10 left forearm needs brace
-This week: 13, 13, 13, 13 +progress -need forearm strap

Reverse pec dec 4 x 8 3 sec negative
-Last Week: 70, 110x7, 90x7.5 held half until failure, 70
-This week: 110, 110x4.5 failure, 90, 90

Dips 3 x 12 3 sec negative each rep
-Last week: assisted dips I hate injury- 105, 115x8, 105)
-This week: 115, 125, 125 +good progress

Cardio 25min treadmill 131bpm @ 4% 3.5mph

Overall good workout, great energy, no aggression though. It's weird to me, my hormones are fucked up I think. Tren definitely wrecked me i believe.

BUT, happy from todays results. Time for 2nd snack, load rest of meals, and get to working!

Not sure why I am just now seeing your log, but good job and keep it up.

I was looking over your blood work. What is the story behind the cholesterol? Were you on orals prior to getting the work done?

I would definitely get some compression sleeves bro. They helped me a ton first time using them yesterday. When is the last time you had a hormone panel ran? It’s very possible some things could be off.

I went on a fat keto diet. Meaning low carb ,processed proteins (like lunch meats and fatty burgers and crap) stuff with high saturated fats. So technically not keto. Regardless, I was gaining for almost a year because I thought i was doing 6 months for a DUI.

Jan ran 1g test e/300mg tren e for 14 weeks, and ran winny 50mg ED for 12 weeks. Ran PCT a little earlier than I should have b/c my court date was Mid May.

My bloodwork is from 6/30 so its recent, but it just checks test because I was trying to convince my Dr. To get me on trt. But the tren really shut me down. Zero libido, zero sex drive, zero aggression. Even though my total test is 430.

Oh!!.. and I got fat, and was injured and out of the gym for almost 5 months after getting myself up to 230lbs. So I did my pct while NOT working out. Lost 90% of my gains, etc, etc. Wanted the strength to match my size... "just in case."

I'm 5 weeks back at the gym, 3 weeks on a very clean diet and workout routine from the coach, and losing weight, fat, cardio as close to 6 days a week that I can. I'm sure it's going down. My pcp sent me some "literature " on how to lower my cholesterol. BWAHAHAH.... they want me to get it checked again in 6 months to see if it improves or if I need to get on meds.

I have a forearm strap for my left arm that works really well. Coach is giving me exercises to strengthen around the tendons and things to slowly get my weights up without further injury or lost gym time.

Compression sleeves might be my next move if the healing isn't matching my training (to prevent further injury of course)

Thanks! Glad you're chiming in, and this is going to be the comeback transformation of a lifetime man. 1st time in my life shit around me isn't toxic. I have nothing but simple pleasures. So feel free to follow along could get good!

Interesting. When I was on keto my blood was perfect. The doctor said I had about .05% of ever having heart issues. However, running winstrol at even 40 mg for 6 weeks will f**k up that up for me in a heartbeat. I watched my HDL take a dive for the south pole and I was eating clean and doing cardio. I couldn't imagine what 50 mg for 12 weeks would do to me. I wouldn't make it that long. If I start experiencing negative sides, other than night sweats, from gear I either reduce the dose or stop it all together.

My doctors (VA and TriCare) aren't even allowed to discuss TRT with us if our cholesterol, RBC, HCT, Creatin, etc... is not in the normal range. Really makes planning cycles a pain in the ass, because I have to have enough time to return to a normal range and RBC/HCT can take a while.

Sleeves are worth their weight in gold, especially when you are leaning out and pushing major weight.

1st pic is 6-24, 2nd pic is today 7-22, almost a month. It's before today's workout. Some changes going on, but it's hard to see. Arms and shoulders, stomach has a little fat loss, I'll post something from this weekend. My next check in and body scan is Monday morning.

I'll get there! Keep watching boys, natty so far. Never had a dialed in diet before. Almost curious to see what gains I can get without gear. HOWEVER, this workout routine is killer for me. On the rest days when I want to move forward and skip rest day. I can't. Between the rest, the pause, the negatives.. all with multisecond delays.. fucking exhausts me. I tried today, but was sore AS FUCK!
