    so, what do you guys think, if i need surgery, do it? i don't wanna be outta commission. i gotta keep making my gains.
    Fix it now so you can grow later, IMHO.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Havent done it since July and wanted to know where I am.

    Also, I hate myself apparently. Wanted to see just how well I can still perform while heavily depleted. Miserable as fuck, but that old train low compete high thing.

    Ill probably do the same thing after my second cycle as well, once some different compounds are in play and I have a better idea of which weight class I should be in. Im not stupid enough to think Test should be the main driver for a weight restricted competition.

    You definitely did the right thing imo. Get the toxicity out of your life.

    Guess who showed her how to do pull overs and watched her to make sure her form was good.
    Damn, that would send me to the stand up tanning bed (the jack off chamber)

    Well all you would have to do is ask her which of the 4 local strip clubs she is currently working at and you could have her take care of the deed for you in a private dance room. Like my user name says BEen THere DOne THat (BETHDOTH)

    Buddy a lot can happen in a week at your level. Stay focused. Stay the course. Do what you have to to stand up there and have no regrets. You got this.

    270. I have absurd gorilla arms and can almost scratch my knees without bending over. Makes for a decent deadlift, but shit bench, or at least one thats going to take a lot more work.

    ETA: I MIGHT be able to push more, but I train completely solo, so not having any form of handoff often prevents me from being in what I feel would be completely ideal positioning. Either way, Ill just keep dealing with it and see where things go.

    So for those going for the bulk, is it judged simply by size put on on all muscle groups? Is separation & balance taken into account (no Obs, this is NOT an anti mass-monster comment)? With GHs help, Ive just gotten my metabolism & appetite back & am looking forward to really eating again after this cycle.

    Serious question, Id possibly like to give this a shot if you have the competition next year. I have been trying to plan out the year already in preparation.

    Thank you, appreciated!

    Losing is not a big deal to me rn given this is my first cycle. I have learned a lot and have noticeably gotten bigger so that’s a win in my book no matter what I place. Getting to know all of you and the learning process alone has been priceless.

    I know I signed up for most improved but if it’s not too much of an ask would the judges mind judging me for both categories? I haven’t cut off enough weight to really hit most improved in my opinion and being judged for both as well as any feedback I feel would really help me for future cycles. Thanks

    See now I may be confused. My idea of MI is literally who improved the most not who lost weight and all that. I definitely bulked not MI. But it is what it is. Just not sure the definition of MI
