    Ok I skipped workout today. It was 4am last night and couldn't fall sleep. It was the second night in a row that it happened.

    I hope I get a better night sleep tonight. I felt like shit today the whole day.

    I am working them once a week now and not even that hard (probably 3-4 exercises). I just feel unmotivated because I don't see a lot of progression to be honest.

    I'm skipping gym today too. First time ever in this cycle that I only hit each muscle once a week. It won't hurt me like that really.

    All right. I just finish my chest, shoulders and triceps today Sunday. Damn I feel like the latter are dying right now. I hope I didn't hurt them haha

    Unfortunately I felt a bit unmotivated today after those 2 I skipped gym last week. I even felt like I lose a bit of strength because I couldn't even finish my flat barbell exercise (as a matter of fact I totally skip it today). Why was this? If it helps I was stressed the whole weekend but this is actually the common.

    Anyways, this morning I measured my arm and they didn't grow this week. I did gain weight though (went from 197.2 pounds to 201.4 in one week). Waist measured the same as a month ago. I just think my chest isn't growing that much and I hit them hard increasing the weight every 2 weeks and all.

    As for the rest of my body, my shoulders are slowly growing. About my back, I'm not too sure because it's hard to tell on the mirror. Legs and butt need a lot of work and I don't like it. They can do better. So far my arms are the things that seem to grow the fastest except for this week. I went from 15 inches to 16 in about 18-20 days. When I started my cycle they were 14 inches (I think). I'm so worry though because my sleeping habits are being a disaster lately. I'm still gaining 1.5-3 lbs every week regardless (and not so much fat it seems).

    I'm on my 8th week of my first test c cycle. I have 4 more weeks left. Any comments?

    Comments? Keep at it buddy!

    My first test cycle I didnít see much till after the 8th week.

    I know there are a lot of purists here and I donít fault them. I just donít care about legs cause I wear jeans, lol. Donít go to the beach? Well then, f-abs as well.

    Enjoy yourself; this should have an element of fun. If you are making gains and youíre happy, then youíre kicking ass imo!

    Today I was a bit unmotivated too just like yesterday. I'm not exactly sure why because I slept okay last night and drank my coffee. My workout wasn't as intense but I s did my best and tried to finish each one. It's just that it wasn't a perfect one. I didn't seem to gain strength this last week btw.

    Legs were SKIPPED again. My body was too exhausted and for some reason my stamina levels have decreased this week. Does that mean the test reached its peak already?

    I also just feel unmotivated because neither of the legs exercises are of my like. I feel like a need a whole day off as well. Usually on the days I don't work out I work. Forgot to say that I didn't have a good night sleep. That might be the main factor.

    I don’t like to be negative man, but you are wasting gear. I’m starting to doubt your seriousness, and I always give folks the benefit of a doubt.

    I'm on my 10th week already. It looks like I peaked and now I'm going downhill (I mean the effects of test).

    How many days do you plan to workout per week? Whatever it is, it sounds like you need to reduce it. Your lack of motivation may stem from overtraining, ironically, especially if you work a physically demanding job. There are mental and physical aspects to The Iron Game, you need to take care of both.

    Reduce volume, maybe run mid-cycle blood work (because your E may be out of whack), and re-evaluate. Get your rest and nutrition. Then don't worry about missing a day, because with reduced volume, you may not be missing any. In fact, by decreasing the number of days per week you workout, you may look forward to them more. If you DO miss a day, pick up where you left off, don't just do your favorites. That means don't skip leg day.

    Edit: I was assuming you were on cycle but can't tell from here. Probably want to run bloods anyhow to see what is what.
    How do you think I should reduce my workout days without sacrificing mass? Yes. I think need it. It's my 10th week on test c. Should stop injecting now or follow another two weeks. I'm not motivated anymore and want to cut as soon as possible. But this will need time.

    What's the next of the blood check? I am seeing my doctor tomorrow. How should I tell him I'm on steroids ?

    I already admit I was on test this morning. It was my first time visiting this doctor. I now regret it. Wish you told me before. What do you think is gonna happen now? He seemed like a cool guy. Don't you sign for a privacy thing when you visit a doctor? According to the laws I mean.

    My blood pressure was high and they were trying to figure out why. I am seeing the cardiologist now. The probably suspected I was on roids because of the size of my arms and chest, lol.

    Anything at all is better than skipping.

    I've had occassional weeks when I felt like shit or I had a nagging injury, so I just did 'mini workouts' instead of doing nothing at all (e.g. just one set of each exercise with 3/4 the normal weight).

    Even if you walk into the gym and just do one light set and walk straight back out, that's still better than nothing. Being a person who works out is just as much about maintaining a mentality and seeing yourself as a person who works out. Skipping days is not conducive to this mindframe.

    My weightlifting days are Monday - Thur. If I miss Thur than I'll do it on Saturday instead. If I miss both Thur and Fri then I'll double-up on Saturday. I only miss an entire week if I'm genuinely sick or injured, or on my annual 10 days of silence at a Buddhist meditation centre.

    I'm on my final days of the test cycle. In the the last 4 weeks I didn't grow up that much to be honest. My biceps went from 16.0 inches to just 16.4 in the last 6-7. In my first 6 I went from 14.0 inches to 16.0 (I think it also had to do with muscle memory because I was 15.0 at some point).

    It's interesting because I ate more this last week and I feel like my shoulders got bigger. I'm actually eating without being hungry lately. But indeed it looks like I gained at least 1.5 pounds in the last 7 days. Before I was fluctuating between 202 and 204.

    In the last 3 weeks my skin have been more oily. I am getting a few workouts in my forehead but something very minimal and hardly noticeable.

    My testicles are shrank as hell at almost the size of a grape. It's weird because I've been injecting the hcg (had to stop in the last week because of the lack of syringes though) and they are still the same size. Why is this??
