Ah I see about the AIs, had no problems while running SD though.
Bad news, I got my shoulder checked out by the doctor today and I have a minor tear on my subscapularis(part of the rotator cuff). He said that I shouldn't lift at least until my physical therapy evaluation which is on the 28th, and there is probably a good chance they will recommend not lifting. I do plan on doing some EXTREMELY light weights with my wife, she has a small barbell and dumbbells at home but they don't go very high at all, but I thought it would be good for doing something since I'm not really supposed to be lifting and that will ensure that I don't go heavy at all. Good news was BP was at 133/81 which is pretty decent, over 130 is high normal for systolic but it's not a big deal and happens to people just from stress a lot.
This leads up to me making a decision about this cycle, I won't be able to put forth 100% and I don't want to waste test. So I have two options that I've been thinking of and I'd like some opinions on them. First option would be to stop the test completely, PCT, and save it all for a later time. Second I was thinking was start cruising at 250 per week to help me keep what gains I've gotten, then when I'm finished with my physical therapy and feel like I'm ready to lift again I can bump it up. I just really hate the idea of possibly losing all or most of the gains I've gotten, though I do think that if I keep my diet clean and at maintenance I should be able to retain a good deal of what I've gained. Not sure how long I'll be doing physical therapy for yet either btw.
If anyone else has been through a similar situation(especially while on cycle) I would really appreciate any feedback you can give me about how it went for you.
Also I hate the idea of stopping a cycle partway through and I've never had to before, it sucks pretty bad but the doctor said if I'm not careful it could become a major tear.

I'm sure you want to hear the cruise answer. I would. Probably would help with recovery/therapy too. I'm definitely not qualified to give the answer but PCT shutdown sucks lol

Shoulder stuff is no joke. Praying for a speedy recovery for you bro. Hopefully it doesn't require surgery either.

Stop the cycle, pct, recover and then start a new cycle when your all healed. I had a partial thickness year of the supraspinatus, didn't heed my doctors advice, kept working out and ended up with shoulder surgery and almost 5 months out of the gym.

The more I think about it stopping the cycle and healing up is the only option that really makes total sense as far as recovery. Thanks for the advice man, I'll start my PCT in 10 days then. Still a great cycle for only a month wish I could've stayed on long enough to really see how the test alone was but I WILL BE BACK.

Well I've decided I need to do something as far as working out so I'm going to start doing cardio and whatever calisthenics I can do without hurting my shoulder(so mostly legs and abs) 5 days a week. I'll be eating at maintenance, around 3300 cals, at first and if I don't lean up then I'll adjust but this way I can lean out while I'm off from lifting.

PCT begins today. I've been eating at maintenance and doing cardio and calisthenics, I'm down to 185 already but seem to be holding there at least for the last few days. Looking a lot leaner I think I was bloated on even though I didn't think I was before. Here is my plan for PCT, a little simpler since cycle ended up so short:
DAA 3g ED 6 weeks
I will still post end of PCT pics and stats on here if anyone is still interested or would be interested in what to expect if something like this were to happen.

I had a problem nearly 3 years ago. Had a tear on something in my shoulder forgot what. But the pain comes and goes. Some days I can't bench and somedays I can. Since that injury everyday I work/ stretch my shoulder before EVERYTHING! Been a bit better and honestly helped my bench technique. Lol
I hope you have a speedy recovery bro.
Live through my log now >.<

If benching hurts your shoulder man look into powerlifting style bench. Shoulder blades pinned back, pronounced arch in your back and elbows in, this takes a lot of the emphasis off your shoulder and elbow joints.

So I had my phys therapy eval and it went well, the doctor said it doesn't seem like my shoulder is injured too bad, usually he gets people coming in that can't even move their arm anymore. Luckily I still have full ROM I just have pain and stiffness a lot of the time, so that's a relief that it's not too bad. He said I'll do 3 weeks of once a week phys therapy sessions and then on the 4th week I'll have a follow up appointment to check my progress. He gave me some stretched and resistance band exercises to do at home 3x a day. I would list the stretches/exercises but they are pretty hard to describe. The only familiar resistance band exercises were internal and external rotations.
TLDR: Phys therapy shouldn't be too long, hopefully only a month things are going good!
Also weight still at 185 Haven't been sticking to cardio going to hit some up tomorrow.
