Older wiser and just broke my old record
- 10-08-2011, 01:27 AM
Tomarrow, I think I will set the new workout up, get the log started and make some adjustments in the old diet. I had a long talk with my doctor about my trt, she admitted that the lab, like most had lowered the range from 280>1100 to 280>827 ng/dl. Off the record, she in brief explained the changes since the steroids laws went into effect. Boy that was an eye opener, now I know why my urologist changed my dose when I was 830ng/dl. I'm going to have to study and read up on this information. That is when I get some extra time, whatever that is ?
My old friend, the ex-powerlifter told me at work today, that as soon as I get my life back in balence and time issues resolved, that we can train together every other saturday. I'd like to get some new input and a break from the same old workout pattern.

TT- thanks for the PM, Today is reset day, diet back up and running. Tomarrow it's back in the gym, can't wait, it's been to long. Arm feels a lot better, a little bit weak but it's going to be okay. LOL the wife thinks that I can just pin myself, hit the gym and go for it. She's back in the kitchen, today it's 5 meals, 1.5 lbs of chicken breast, .5lb of fruit and .5lb. of fresh veggies, cottage cheeze and a gal of water. Toss in a protien shake, a quick breakfast before I run over to mom and dads each morning. (Just divide it up over the day.)
I had to explain that I can't pin, flip the switch to on position and run a full cycle. I have to cruise on TRT, diet and low weight lifts and give the arm more time to hit the 100%. I don't want another set back on this injury. Before she left for work she set my gym bag by the front door, hint...hint tomarrow is the day.

[QUOTE=TINYTOAD;3031699]That's great news that your arm is getting better! Even though we're older and wiser, I think we're more prone to injury.
First day back went smooth, forearm a little bit stiff other than that, everything went better than I thought. Set it up to run in 30 minutes, wide grip pull downs..1 x 10 @ 140lbs, close grip pull downs..1 x 10 @ 160lbs, Preacher bench..1 x 10 @45lbs, shrugs..1 x 10 @ 270lbs. That's the last set of everything I did. Preachers bench...gasp ! that's the only thing that made the arm hurt, kept the weight low. At least I have a starting point, tomarrow I'm going to bump the time up to one hour and see how it's feeling after tomarrows push and pull day.

Friday was a full workout. One of those that when you walk out of the gym, it's OH YEA..! Spent the entire weekend working outdoors, my sister takes over on the weekend, so I can get away from mom and dad on a couple of days. I hate to say it, I look forward to a time out.
I'm only 20lbs. off from lifting a full rack on the nautlis machine, as TT said the thrill of max weight on a machine. I just need to take my time getting there...! I will have to post entire workout later this week when I have enough time.

'good to hear you had a full workout on Friday. I had a similar workout on Sunday, and could barely move by the end of the day.
I'm glad you are able to take some time off on the weekends. Unless somebody's been there before, it's hard for people to imagine how draining it can be.
Keep up the good work!

Time off is over, back to harder workouts...going to extend the workouts to 1.5 hours, it's time to go all out.

I'm going to switch from rehab to full workouts by the end of this week. The goal on my birthday is a little over a month away, it's time to start pushing on towards that goal. Diet is on the mark, everything seems good to go, sleep is doing better so I will kick this off and hope the arm is ready to go. My 5 minutes are up, off to the gym and to stop by dads before work.

It's good to say the eye sight is so much better now. I will have to adjust, but it feels great to be doing this without my glasses.
I only had time to hit the gym twice this week. My arm is almost back to 100% so it's time to go for it. My last workout, I ran one minute between sets, the weight to 50% of max and doubled the reps. It felt really good, so I hit the incline bench and ran a few sets with the 45lb dumbells, no problem with the arm. Friday will be the best day to just fire off and see how hard I can hit it.

I changed my work bid, I walk about 10 miles a day, it's helping my old leg injury and it's getting stronger. Diet is still on the mark, just waiting this out. I plan to hit the gym soon and start working on the legs and core/abs and hope the arm heals, if not I'll end up getting an ultra-sound or something to see whats going on with it.

Tomarrow is the day, 58 and going for it ! I'll just get the best lift I can, no pain no gain, it's been hard to prepair we will see how it goes.

I failed at my goal today. To many skipped or short workouts taking care of Dad, the stress is taking it's toll. Allergys kicked in due to the rain, so breathing issues didn't help. First two lifts went fine, however at 360lbs I was all in totally drained with no energy. I was standing at the machine getting ready to try 450lbs, I just took the belt off and walked away. I guess in every life a little rain must fall, post lift my blood pressure was 110/71 and bpm 84. Thats the best it's been in years, maybe it's time to cut some BF and try to keep the stress away.

OG, I had a long post that got deleted explaining this. In short, I would try about 10,000 IUs ED of Vitamin D3. I use 2 gms ED of the Stinging Nettle Root and only 600 mgs ie. 1 cap of the RYR. My wives and friends have all had Docs tell them to take 2 each of the 600 mg caps but I am already down at 155 on my Cholesterol.
I hope these Docs give you some more info:

There is no overload when it comes to health issues. I have been doing a lot of reading on herbs to lower blood pressure. There is nothing better than trying to be the best you can be...it just takes a lot of hard work. Thanks for all the info. Now I have some more reading to do.

Dutchman, dose set, lets see how this works out. Bloodwork is due in 90 days maybe I can show positive results on my cholesterol. I'm at 205 right now, I'll post the new number when I get the results. I guess it's time to pick a new goal and workout.
12-05-2011, 12:28 PM
Thanks for asking the questions you have oldguns and for all the great info you are sharing Dutchman. You could easily write a book and charge for this stuff so I very much appreciate you sharing your research and experience for free.

I’ll check out those sites Dutchman. I haven’t cooked with it yet since I was under the mistaken impression it would go bad like most oils when heated. Now I’ve actually got something to cook my breakfast with. I originally came across Coconut Oil researching diets like UD2 for the reasons you mentioned. Other than Fish Oil cap the only other oils I’ve been using are Olive Oil and small amounts of Sesame Oil when I make my own Humus.

I'm going to make all the adjustments, diet, supplements and in 90 days after bloodwork set goal and go for it once again. Right now I'm looking for another doctor, mine took my injection levels from .40 ml E3D to .15 ml 2X a week, talk about feeling rough...! I was at 830 mg/ml. Adjust the diet, fix the doctor issue and get ready to lift heavy again with a new goal set.
