    Damn man, sorry to hear that.

    Hope you heal up quick!

    Sorry to hear that. There is absolutely nothing worse than a screwed up back. Can't walk. Can't sit. Can't lay down. Can't roll over in bed. Can't get dressed. Hope it gets better soon, man.

    I hate anything that makes me not being able to hit the gym. Had a fever on Monday and I felt guilty about not going to the gym and I felt, out all things, lazy. Hate it so I feel your pain here.

    Well, I can't really feel guilty, there's no way I can train today but I am missing it. It means I will only have trained twice this week but it really isn't worth the risk and keeping me out for longer.

    Now, the really sad part is that I have to cut my carbs on training days to take into account the lack of training

    It had better, I don't go for another 4 weeks.

    Haven't trained since Thursday and won't before Tuesday. Even then I think I will be having a deload week utilising machines with no leg work. I'm bummed about it but have stuck to my amended (lowered carbs) nutrition plan.

    Bollocks!!!

    You told me mate, I replied a couple of posts up.

    Good memory on the fence too, that was about 15 months ago and I did it about a year before that too. It's a pain in the ass but I reckon it's going to be an ongoing thing, my lower back being as tight as a ducks arse.

    Are you going to run your keto plan then?

    ^^keto plan.. not sure. (lol) right now i am running a diet i ran back in 2012. it is a 7 day carb cycle but a bit different than the one i was on a couple weeks ago. im also back to doing fasted cardio 6 days per week. i havent done any in like a year. fun fun fun..

    man the portions im eating right now are hilarious!. back to 5-6 meals per day.. in any event my progress has slowed to a crawl and ive been trying to pinpoint it. i think the obvious is the culprit, but for some reason i didnt recognize it.

    too many calories and too little cardio! and i think i do well with am fasted cardio vs afternoon cardio..

    I remember the fence too, just checked in and saw you hurt the back again. Glad you are back, hope all is well soon.

    Back improving each day but still not great. Trained today but having a deload week.

    Dropped my carbs as a result of not really training but it appears a little too much as I'm down 2lbs to 196 this morning. Gonna run a mini cut for 3.5 weeks up to my holiday. It's only a drop, on average, of about 250cals per day.

    Back is feeling a whole load better. Still not risking training legs or lifting weights from the floor but I have had a pretty good workout week, all things considered. Hopefully I can hit it hard again next week.

    With the exception of Romanian deadlifts I have trained as normal this week. I had to sub in horizontal leg press instead of the 45 degree version for the sake of my back though. Lost a rep or 2 on some exercises but gained a rep or 2 on others.

    Weight at 196-197lbs. Holiday in 2 weeks so might lose 2lbs before then.

    Hoping for my first Nebido shot next week

    Is this only for TRT or can this be used instead of, i.e. 250 test-e 2 times/week?

    Thanks

    TRT. It's one shot of 1g every 10-12 weeks. Not sure how one would use it to cycle other than pinning 4 or 5g all on day one and then starting a PCT on week 12. That would be 16-20ml worth of injections all in one day though:/

    195lbs today and noticeably leaner despite it being only a loss of 1lb in 2 weeks. I'm also on the third lower carb day in a row so it's a slightly false reading I guess.

    Workouts have been good, back has mostly been good. Only missing one exercise from my regime to rest my back but I will be adding that back in over the weekend.

    What's your BF% at 195lbs? Also, remind me - how tall are you?

    Ah ok, you have me by about 1.5". I have you by about 20lbs, but I'm a fat fvck so as we've established in the past, we're probably very similar in terms of LBM.

    That's where the similarity ends, you look way more muscular than me. And I need over 3000cals daily to maintain. (That's not always a good thing. But mostly it is)

    Meh. We won't really be able to make that determination until after I get my shit together and cut all this slop off of me!! But thanks anyway, lol.

    I really screwed my body up over the years... I have SUCH a slow metabolism, it's insane. You'd think that at my weight/LBM, I'd need somewhere between 2800-3200 calories to maintain, but nope - easily can be done on 2500.

    Yeah, 405 and I were discussing him being very similar. Cutting at 2000cals. Reckon I could start cutting at about 3000cals right now. I do 2 hours cardio a week MISS at the moment too.

    Every time I stop by you are getting blacker. Is that what the "back in black" is all about?

    195lbs again this week though that's after 4 lower carb days.

    Mediterranean holiday next week so I am expecting to come back in excess of 200lbs and I can then jump back into a lean bulk for a couple more months or so.

    My hotel has a gym that I think is well kitted out with techno gym machines so I should still get some workouts in. I will use it as a slight deload week so I can launch a 4 week HIIT plan when I return.
