Older wiser and just broke my old record
I will be 58 in November and have worked out on and off my whole life. Back in the gym, on trt and going for one last goal. I'm going to dead lift 580 lbs on the dead lift machine. Then my heavy lifting days will come to a close. I'm 5' 8" at 185 lbs bf around 17%, diet right on the mark....I think it's time to rock and roll. I have until the end of November, this last lift will be done to honor in memory my youngest son. IT will get done.... 500 lbs was my old best until last friday and I hit 520 lbs, don't know if I can hit the mark but I'm going after it.

Spent my morning workout with an old friend, a former power lifter. He wants me to use a wider belt and get more of my legs into the begining of the lift. A lot of work to do, but everything will come together in time. Anyone has any advise lets hear it.

Good luck but don't go and injure your self ...

Oh yea been there and done that, don't plan to push beyond my limits. The wifes all in on this one, she works at a nursing/rehab center in dietary. It's like taking a picnic basket to work instead of a lunch box...lol. She intends to come with me to the gym and watch the lift, something she has never done before. I'll have to post my stats before and after, still making up my mind on what to run on cycle and enjoy a blast during this effort.

Yesterday was testing day. Different machines, different weights to check ROM and strength levels, found a couple of areas I need to do some extra work, I get to deal with that on Monday. This is the starting point.. neck 17.5...shoulders...54....chest ...44...waist...36...arms 15...weight 186.5, injurys...repaired right rotor cuff, impact injury to left knee and an injury to lumbar area. I'm going to have to do some major cardio and improve my breathing, my allergys don't help any these days. Thinking about a cycle/ test e/ deca / tren a , Haven't made up my mind yet, going to do some more reading on the subject. ( I have ran multiple cycles in the past.) Any one want to kick in there .02 on cycle issue, go for it !

I'd leave the deca out. Really won't provide much benefit on top of tren. Have you used tren before?
08-07-2011 06:19 AM
First time with tren a , with the deca I was looking for a little help with the joints. I was told to go light on the tren until I see how I feel on it, then adjust the dose. Test e will be ran at 500mg per week.

I've got a few years and a few pounds on you but I also like to lift heavy. If I can recover from a mild concussion I had recently, I plan to finish out my goal which was to hit 500 lbs on a rack deadlift for my 70th b-day this October. That said, I have had fantastic success with my joints thanks to doing lots of Cissus and megadosing my Omega 3s (around 2.7 gms ED). Lots of secondary health positives along the way. Good Luck!

We all have to have goals, I have had alot of health positives along the way. I guess it just fuels the fire, I want that max effort. My weight is up to 190.5, bp is running normal and bloodwork is due in 4 weeks. I should be able to get started around the first of September. I hope your 500 is an easy and safe lift...best wishes.

Yesterday it all came together. Morning coffee, pre-workout drink, at the gym everything came together. After the warm up, I made three lifts, last lift was 590. It was a perfect day, energy, drive, form, focus, strength and even breathing ( no allergy issues ). Except when I was lowering the weight after my last lift, something didn't feel right. Post workout/ carb drink followed by a protien shake within 30 minutes, I felt great but still trying to figure out what was off during my lift.

TT thanks for the info in the pm. I'm cruising at 25mg e3d, test e and will probably run tren a / test e cycle when I kick this off. What were your doses when you ran your cycle.
08-13-2011 05:45 AM
I'd have to do some digging to give you exact numbers on my last cycle, but I was probably running test cyp at 1g / week, and tren enan at 250 to 500 mg / week. I started having crazy night sweats with the tren, so I backed it off. I was around 260 pounds back then.
Tren has some interesting side effects, at least for me, so just be aware. I went for quite some time avoiding this "tren cough" thing I had read about. I didn't understand it, and thought it was a load of BS until it happened to me. But right after pinning, and once or twice during, I broke out into this crazy cough! I couldn't stop coughing for 2 or 3 minutes from what I recall! I had some folks tell me it was because I was running tren ace. However, I got the same exact thing running tren enen.
Other side effects I've experience with the tren, are the night sweats I mentioned earlier. I would have to sleep on a towel so I wouldn't completely soak my bed. It didn't really seem whether I was running the tren high or low, after a few weeks, I would get the night sweat thing.
Tren also seems to give me a short fuse. I would be standing in the line at the grocery store, and some lady would whip out her check book and I'd just feel the anger build inside. You have to be mindful of that too.

I never heard or seen a deadlift machine, I just load the bar on the floor and pick it up. My weak ass PR is 505 I'm 5'9 205 at 11% bf your strong as hell to lift that, there are so many guys at my gym that can't come close to 500. If you go on a cycle with tren I'm sure you'll hit 600. I want to hit 600 then cycle to try and hit 700+ so good luck to us both.
08-13-2011 08:12 AM
I've only been to two gyms that had one. 505 is one damn good deadlift don't kid yourself. Lift with your brains not your boyz, pay close attention to how your pulling through the lift. When I'm in position ready to lift, if everything thing feels right I go for it. If my grip, position or stance doesn't feel right, I'll just walk away, it's not worth the injury. I never think of how much weight is on the lift, just how the lift feels. Just set your goal and take one step at a time, before you know it , you will be standing with the bar at your feet....goal met. Good luck on your hitting 600.

I have been advised to run the tren at a very low dose to see how I respond first.

Insomnia too, even with prescribed sleep aides
08-14-2011 09:07 AM
I can't deal with the insomnia issues right now. I'm damn lucky to get 6.5 hours of sleep as it is with it all thats going on around me. Any ideas on what product to replace the tren e .

I had to figure out what was wrong on my last dead lift so I spent Sat morning at the gym. It took about an hour with a little help, I have it worked out. Now, I remember why I don't go to the gym on Sat., The local wannabe group were there, I couldn't put it into words, just think comedy club ! Instead of working out today, I have to go to the hospital for bloodwork etc....I only have 3 hours a day to do as I wish and that is my gym time, I just have to much going on, sooner or later I have to cut something out.

Tuesday's workout ran normal for a change.
Curls 3x10 45lbs.
shrugs 1x10 270 lbs
curls 1x10 45 lbs
shrugs 1x8 360 lbs
curls 1x6 45lbs
shrugs 1x3 450lbs
The above was done on the machines, afterwards grabbed a bb, 35lb and sat and enjoyed 2 sets of 10, sitting at the preachers bench. I'm thinking about trying decline dumbell press. The gym owner has a staff trainer, work with me once a week, I think just to keep me out of trouble. She isn't hard on the eyes, so far she has been a lot of help. Right now I got my hands full so I have to be brief.

TT thanks for the pm and the info.. I've been switching back and forth to give my lower back longer time to recover before I go again. I fractured a lumbar vert. and it lets me know in cold weather. I guess it's time to put it to the test but I'm going slow at it.
