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.

Dutchman, The cirrus rx worked like a charm, that will be a main stay from now on ! Running the red rice at 2 caps(1200 mg) And the stinging nettle root at 2 caps(1000 mg), the D3 is at 10,000iu. Everything else will remain the same until after the first of the year and my next check up.
The ubiquinol and astaxanthin will kick in around Jan 15th when I fire back up with a new workout plan. The hunt for a new urologist is about to begin, I'm on the fast track to crash and burn...the wife says I'm acting the way I did before I started TRT. I told her acting.. heck I'm feeling it, she wanted to inject me at the old dose and be done with it ! I'm at the bottom of the roller coaster, now the time to get checked out.
If you have any suggestions, dutchman I would enjoy hearing them !

Dutchman, what is your view on lowering LDL cholesterol, mine is at 135.4 lab range 0>130. Total is 205, Changing out dietary goals, overall energy is tanked right now. It doesn't help that I feel like I have the flu all the time. HDL is mid-range at 54.5, and RBC is at the top of range +.8. A year ago my total test was 997ng/dl, blood work results were perfect, Urologist lowered the test e, 6 months ago I tested at 830ng/dl with the above numbers. Again he lowered the test e shots and now I feel almost as bad as I did before I started TRT. It's a little bit weird eating like a horse and lifting as a beast, to being exhausted all the time. I asked him on the last visit to run complete bloodwork, he refused, said that we didn't need to ?, total and free T, e levels etc, no he is going to run only the tests above. It's time to go doctor hunting, I am going to find one who can get me stable, and keep me there !

I plan to restart my workouts on Jan. 2nd, changed my test e shots to every four days. Sleep has improved, energy levels are getting a little bit better overall. Cirrus rx has made a major improvement, can't wait to put it to the test in the gym. Stinging nettle root and red yeast rice have been added to the supplements, the next bloodwork will let me know if their working. Weight is holding steady at 185lbs., blood pressure has improved at 114/75 @ 65 bpm. The wife has controlled the diet to the letter, keeping my weight stable during this off time.
New goal hasn't been set, waiting to see what the doc has to say, heading out to the old gym to spend some time watching a pro workout and pick up some more input. Target exercises and lifting form, from by old power lifting buddy. Two weeks to restart, getting all my ducks in a row. I will openly post all supplements and complete workouts as soon as I get the details worked out.
12-19-2011, 09:36 AM
All the supplements are now running, mega dose fish oil, potassium, vit c, D3, red yeast rice, stinging nettle root, cayenne and co-q-10. The rest will stay in the war chest for later on down the road. Diet still under control, basically set and ready. The doc told me to stay out of the gym until this up coming visit. I've got this gut feeling that she will be telling me that I have tendonitis in my right arm ( elbow and forearm ). If anyone has any input on lifting with tendonitis, I would like to hear about it.
I'm getting ready to replace my TRT doc, I'm as bad as I did feel before I started TRT. This last week I got the name of a new urologist that will run complete blood work and will address the issue. Mine still refuses to check for free test or E levels, enough is enough. Feeling rather poorly or not, I'm hitting the gym as planned and start working out, guess I'll be a work in progress until all this is worked out. I can't stand waiting, so I'm going to deal with the issues and adjust as I go.
Merry Christmas to all.............

TT- congrats on 295, 300 will soon be yours ! Doctor appt. at 9 am Monday, will be in the gym by 10:45. It's about time, the wife has packed my gym bag...hint...hint ! Dutchman, the cirrus rx worked perfect, I'd say about 100% improvement. I will let you know how the stinging nettle root and red yeast rice worked as soon as I'm due for bloodwork. Grunt03, how did the coconut oil work for you ?
12-30-2011, 10:59 PM
I started putting the coconut oil in my shakes last week. It does make it easier to up the calories. I haven’t cooked with it yet since I haven’t made anything fried recently but hash browns do sound good tomorrow.

I haven't purchased coconut oil in a while, but I used to get it at a store called "Sprouts," which is in Texas and other western states.
I'll look for extra virgin coconut oil next time I'm down there.
I've used it for frying up some German potato pancakes. But yeah, it's pretty much solidified at room temperature.
