    NPC 2nd year countdown

    I am just a plain old man trying to make it in a young mans world. I am about 5 weeks out from competing and I am going to try and make a log. This is open to everyone to offer advice or provide opinions. I am 52 and weigh 208.
    I just recently had prostrate issues and backed off the clen and T3. Presently just using ephedrine and caffeine. We will see how this works. I also was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat). I think the T3 was causing it. I am going to see a cardiologist to check it out . I am also going to see a urinologist tomorrow.
    Here are some pics

    Good luck with the cardiologist. Between the clen & t-3, my resting HR is averaging in the 80’s. I started very low, but am increasing both for a few weeks. Can’t say that I feel great since I started however.

    Really amazing pics Charger, right out of a magazine. You remind me of a guy at my gym trying for the classic physique at the Mr. O a few years back (he had also competed at 212, years back as well).

    You are doing fine.
    Doubt is what makes you capable of what you are though.

    5 weeks out. Shits about to get real and suck. But you know that. You’ve been here before. The sacrifice will be temporary. You’ve been here before. You know what you have to do. You’ve done it before and will do it again. No doubts. No regrets. Go out there and take what is yours.

    I changed leg routine. I am now doing supersets of quads with hams and 15-20 reps 2 x week.
    I thought that I looked good last night so reality comes back this morning. I look smooth. I also gained .4 lbs, although I expected it because I ate late last night. Workout went good this morning. Calves, abs and cardio tonight.
    I need to figure out what to do with the cut cycle. Right now Winnie and EC.
    I need to relax a little bit more. Up at 3 am and not being able to relax until 9:15 pm is making me tired.
    I am going to cut down on tanning time. That will free up a little.

    Very tired tonight. Pushed through the cardio. Cardio is HIIT on the treadmill. Did calves and abs. No posing but 10’minutes in the sauna.
    Tomorrow I may try local injection in the lats.

    Damn it charger I told you this yesterday! A urinoligist is just a guy who sticks things in both your holes. A urologist is a Dr who sticks his finger up your butt to check your prostate

    Very tired. I had trouble sleeping. Worked out back today.
    I may rest tonight instead of working out. I rarely miss a workout but I think that it may be beneficial. Life is throwing things at me.

    I couldn’t go pee. Went to the emergency room. I think the mast does it to me, but first time to a Dr about it.
    A follow up with Dr , he said my Prostrate is enlarged, but its normal for my age.
    I have flowmax in case.

    I could not miss the workout. I just wish that I could come home and relax one day. Rushing around, bed at 11 and up at 3.
    I was rushing around and forgot my EC stack.
    Not drinking enough water either.
    I know what I need to do, I just need to do it.

    It sort of sounds f’ed up. It’s more physical now than mental. LOL.

    I guess my brain is trying to keep me on my toes. LOL

    Tomorrow is chest day. Local injection and hopefully some good pics. Keeping the faith!!
    I need to start focusing on my legs.

    Thank you. I just want to make it known, if I can do it, anyone can. Yes, there are sacrifices that you need to make that most may not want to do, but anyone can do it.

    That’s a bullshit statement. If I can anyone can. You have a lot of heart a lot of mental toughness a lot of fortitude and a do or die mentality. Don’t sell yourself short on what you are doing. 3-5% of the population can do what you are doing. I’ve done it in the past. I don’t have what it takes to do it again. It’s fucking hard. Don’t fucking sell yourself short buddy. You are achieving things most dream of. You are a warrior conduct yourself as one. One more mother fucking set.

    I did chest today. Mentally, I am prepared. We’ll see how long that lasts. LOL

    The saying for the day-“Believe in Yourself”. I have been procrastinating signing up for the contest. This weekend I will sign up and there will be no backing out (too freaking expensive). I am going in the old man category and the open (young uns).

    Sometimes you just wish that time could stand still so you could catch up. Well, reality is that it will not so you just need to try and stay in front and not get behind. Life’s issues will continue occurring.
    I am in such great spirits, I need to be thankful for my job. I love it and I love what I’m doing and making a difference. Everyone is supportive of me.

    Here’s today’s pic
