    hahahahahahahaha nahh i am still here on the same path, ive thrown a few wrenches in the engine along the way but still true to the goal....It's been hectic at work and with the am and pm workouts as well as everything else i kind of dropped this site and went on my own for a bit.

    Barely have time to come in here anymore, just came back and im on the AAS part learning a bit before hand since later on i want to start the bulk, stem dropped by my thread lol so i had to come back and say Hello you know!! Definitely missed you and everyone else, talking here, checking in, etc.

    I have been following the kai greene routine he does back/shoulders i find it rather good since alot of the pulling and pushing exercises are using similiar muscle groups!

    woke up this am weighing 192.. did some fasted cardio:

    6min warmup
    10min HIIT
    5min rest
    20min moderate

    then got back on the scale and came in at 191 LOL.. ill be glad when i get back in the 180s.. i know the scale doesnt matter but rite now considering the type of food i ate to get my weight elevated i know the extra weight is water and fat.. neither of which i want to be carrying around!

    no lifting today..

    hey 405 i have been following you alot lately, what is your cardio consisting of? i am at the 25 minute mark so far ( in terms of cardio ) some days i do heavy bag work ( punching bag ) 2 minute light sparring, 30 seconds rest. for 25 minutes, would this be effective on days i can't make it to the gym for cardio

    akali i would say depending on ur goals whatever gets ur heartrate up will work.. i would think sparring as u described would be pretty good depending on the intensity ur doing it at.. id also like to note adding in some kicking would prob prove to be beneficial in many areas!

    my cardio is 3-4 days am fasted for 40mins on elliptical.. with an occasional session thrown in like i posted above im not hard hard cutting rite now and once i get back to my previous weight and bf ill prob drop it back to 2-3days per week.. when i start bulking i may just do it 2x per week to keep cardiovascular system healthier!

    it all depends on ur current goals.. if ur cutting hard id suggest 5-6days per week am fasted or pwo for 45mins!

    yes trying to get below 20% haha. today is my day off just had a 30 minute heavy bag session, yes i throw in kicks i used to do kickboxing before i got injured so it feels good to do some bag work every now and then. I will update my nutritional log now soon 4 week progress and hopefully get some criticism from yourself! cheers

    Bodacious i dont think 6 sets is too much per bodypart

    I have done as many as 12 sets of squats.. 2 warmup and 10 working sets ... As a matter of fact i felt more like i wasnt doing enuff!!

    On chest day i usually do:
    4 sets flat
    4 sets incline
    4 sets flyes or pec deck

    12sets total..

    Well today is last day with carbs til friday.. Maybe i can cut down enuff this one week to go back to maintenance next week for a few weeks.. Weighed 191 this am so i have about 5lbs to lose.. Dont know how much of that is fat.. Maybe all of it in which case itll prob take longer than a 1 week carb cycle.. I am 4lbs lighter than this time last week and feel fairly lean.. Prob wont do anything today.. Maybe cardio this afternoon but i mite work tonite so i may just rest..

    ECA stack works well.. U can start with half dose..

    1baby aspirin (actually full dose of this but its baby aspirin)
    12.5mg primatene
    100mg caffeine

    Works great for suppressing appetite.. When it slows u can double the primatene and caffeine and leave aspirin the same

    post cruise: 8.3%
    after 1 week maintenance: 8.75%

    Question: maintenance 1 more week or cut??? I usually chek it sundays but fkrgot and so did it today.. Weight down to 188lbs from 197 when i got home.. Pre weight: 186...

    Id also like to note i feel leaner and think i am leaner than last week even though calipers say otherwise.. User error??

    Logically it is hard to believe i couldve gaind .45%bf over a week while at the same time losing 9lbs of weight eating @2800cals clean.. Maybe the increase is cuz she didnt measure accurately last week or possible residual fat deposits that hadnt shown up yet from my trip?

    I wouldn't sweat it mate, 2700cals again as 'maintenance' will do, or up it to 2800-2900 which will be closer to your true maintenance.

    Anyhow, quit cutting, I need a bulking partner!

    LOL!! i like being lean i have considered increasing my cals but i dont know how well ill fare on a bulk.. I get the least bit "jiggly" and mentally it wears on me tremendously until i rectify the situation! I do wanna bulk though.. Need to get my shoulder lookd at.. It doesnt bother me really but i can tell in pics that i dont "hold" my left shoulder the same as my right.. Almost like it is rounded towards the front more.. I can tell when i look at back shots.. My right shoulder looks square and my left one looks more rounded.

    There'll be a way around the postural issue. It would likely still be there after te shoulder is fixed, you need to strengthen/tighten the relevant muscles and maybe ease any tight muscles.

    I'm preferring being lean rather than 'big' too and I think that, as it's summer(soon), I will be more conscientious about how clean my bulk is.

    was just checking! and i am still doubtful it is diet related, i am still on the notion that it is the TRT. any previous family history of liver disease or hepatitis? hopefully it was just the blood test that day and now your levels are back within normal range.

    The following was copied and pasted from dr john crisler's website: all things male:

    The risk of possible liver disease is listed on the package insert. But this is a throw back to the abuse of testosterone supplementation-in other words, taking steroids . I have never heard of appropriate TRT damaging the liver.
