    ok so about a year and a half ago i finally got my T levels checke cu i felt like crap all the time, couldnt put on any muscle, after i had lost about 50pounds of bsicallly pure muscle due to being sick and being hospitilized, It came back with levels under 100....i tried and tried to get it up on my own with things liek DAA, lots of sat fat, fat in general, etc..... got it up to about 100 natrually, unfortunately i had like no LH either so my body was not telling my balls to make any test.............. because of this my doctor put me on hrt (androgel), was on that for about a year, then went off to tr a "restart" with clomid, which didn't work and within the 2 weeks i was off the gel my Test went back down to 29!........ so they put me back on gel, well about a month ago i was taken off the gel again :-(......... I am doing everything i can to hopefully get my body to somehow perform a miracle and start making some damn hormones. I will be running AIs DAA as well as supersaponins which i have been using for a few weeks right now ( i was also on Purus labs d-pol for a few weeks) I honestly don't feel that bad which suprises me, however i have only put on a bout a pound or 2 if that in the past month, but going by feeling which is the most important in my opinion i dont feel as bad as i had int he past s i guess thats a plus!!!................

    - my trainings tyle always starts witha big lift for lower reps, usually do some sort of power movement maye wit bands or chains then work more in teh hypertrophy range after that, hoping to get some hormones flowing

    diet is 3500 calories sort of carb cycle....300/250/144 on mod. days p/c/f 300/350/100 on high days......I also am going to be going back to an IF or lean gains style eating which i know is usually used for recomp but its jsut alot easier for me because i work early in the mornigns as a fitness instrctor and personal trianier and i cannot eat and then immediately try to teach a class or eat while training, also i seem to be more alert throughoght the day......it is kinda hard to eat almost 2000 calories for my fast breaking meal, but very rewarding! lol

    -if anyone has any secrets to maybe helping to boost my natrual T production feel free to shoot me some ideas......... I also hope to ahve some bloodwork somewhere during this log, honetlyid be happy with t levels around 250-300 at this point, which i konw sux but since its coming form literally like 29, ill take it!

    Dude you will love DAA, i personally get great results from it and it never fails me. It will be VERY beneficial for your situation as well, i have like 10 people at work on DAA and they all have given me positive feedback including older guys/younger guys all over the place. I would LOAD up on Vitamin D as well i take a multi pak that has 4,000 iu of it and i noticed a difference within 2 days considering i neglected the HELL out of my vitamins/minerals which i should have been on top of. When you deplete yourself training all these become very critical and beneficial to your overall health. I started taking Glandulars as well it seems to help as well! If i remember anything ill come back and post it up for you!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    I believe they support adrenal gland function and control optimum hormone levels in the body. All i know is since i started taking them every pre workout feels like the first and i have tons more energy throughout the day. My only complaint is that they stink...a LOT haha

    Have you seen the blood work that's been released by some of our loggers on TestoPRO? I know Daft went from 420 to 751 in about five weeks of TestoPRO. Something to think about later down the road.

    well i had a cray leg workout today, definitely ALOT of hormones released, there jsut had to be lol.....
    did some heavy reverse banded squats which was a real cool feel to it.
    Then did 4 sets of high rep squats which had me at the bottom of the rack on the last set
    -next was 3 sets of heavy hack squats where i was ablt to set soem prs, and then one drop set to ttal failure

    i also did glute bridges, RDL, sumo deads (lighter weight really focusing on squeeing my glutes) from a step so i had to get down extra low, 1 leg squats and a superset of leg curls with leg ext. to finish off....one hell of a workout

    funny thing is i was really tired before teh workout and was REALLY close to taking today off, but the workout turned out to be one of my best leg workouts in a really long tiem, i was soooo focused the entire time, i think part of the reason was the fact that i was sweatin my ass off lol it was hot today and the sweat jsut gets me goin i guess haha......not looking forward to teh net couple of days.....unfortunately not gonna eb getting alot of sleep again tonight so recoery may be an issue, i really think this is where i tend to fall short, i train hard as hell, eat like crazy but soemtimes i jsut dotn rest enough im always on the go, and dont sleep very well..........

    chest workout today...little shaky, wasnt relaly focused for sum reason, really no idea why since i took two days off.... did al ittel cardio both days, my guess is that i didnt get enough cals in, esp. sunday since i did cardio and tehn was on my feet ALL day literally dont think isat down till righ before bed, and still was only taking in around 2600 cals.....that mixed with almost no carsb both days, althoug my pre workout meal had about 125 g carbs in it so i dunno......got decently focused towards the end, ..........still feel like i got a good chest workout though, maybe iddnt get teh intesnte pumps but my reps were lower using bands alot on bench and hammer strength presses so hat could be why, we will see what soreness tomorrow brings haha

    back when i was 24 I did three jobs and school, plus dedicated to this lifestyle. Its manageable, it takes planning and brining your food along, unless you were lucky like me and yourfamily brought your food to your workoplace =).. that was over 6 years ago lol how time flies

    today was an arm day....started offwith banded towel bench 4 sets of 6 then a couple heavy singles jsut to see what i could do, def. not a max but felt good to move some heavier weights.

    then i did Rev. banded close grip smith bench presses, normally i dotn feel CG presse smuch in my tris but toay was an exception, great pumps the whoel workout, even working in the 8-10 rep range on these, i was really feelin it in my tris

    next was decline skull crushers , 4 sets 8-10 last set was a drop with presses as well

    then i did a different superset for me, 3 sets of vbar pushdown ss with bench dips, this relaly pumped up teh tris

    lastly for tris i did DB overhead ext. but woulnt go nearly as heavy as normal, tris were def. shot, form was perfect thogh, all the way down fora good stretch

    for bis i started off with sumthign ery different..... i did 4 sets of 5 negatives which was pretty tough, i have never really done negatives before i dont think, def. felt somedamage goin on haha

    net was one of my new favorite exercises, banded hammer stength plate loaded curl.......the contraction at the top of the movement becasue of the band is un beatable, nothin like it! its liek a mix of a pump and a ripping feeling all at once, gota lvoe it! 4 sets of 10 for that!

    next was lying cable str8 bar curl, 3 sets 10-12 then 3 sets incline curl 10-12 with a double drop on teh last set!

    pumps were really good today, vascularity seemed more intense as well..... overall very good workout, my tris were shaking or a few hours after, which is not normal lol so i think i did good :-)

    You're trying to get bigger but you have low carb days...?

    Squash that **** and eat, homie!

    Red Meat, ZMA before bed on an empty stomach or a supplement like Animal PM, tons of compound movements, a **** load of sleep and heavy weights. Glutamine before bed too for aiding a hormone boosting sleep.

    And real talk, no homo obviously, but make sure you bust a nut on the regular, regardless if it's with a partner or solo.

    I would think having a steady dose of slow digesting carbs would better insulin sensitivity more than random major spikes from carb up days.... But dont quote me on that

    i think one of the ideas behind the IF style diet is the increas in sulin sensitivity....since ur not eating for so long, when u do eat, ur sensitivity is way up and u absorb everything.......i woudl think u kinda get teh same effect from low carb days......not 100% though

    very intense leg workout today, once i get going its sum good stuff lol....did rev. banded suats to start again but i think i set up the bands a little different so they didnt pull up as much so i was not able to do as much, however i made sure to get extra low and really felt it in my hams and glutes and of ccourse quads......

    then i did sum jumps quats 4 sets of 6 with 135 jsut for some power....

    then was high rep squats set 12-15 , went up in weight here form last week, last set was brutal, legs were shakin, ended up at the bottom of the rack

    then did 3 heavy sets of hack squat where i was wable to increase weigh again and then a lighter set witha drop which once again had my legs feeling like they were o fire

    then moved on to hams, did glute bridges, very controlled for a cahgne with the same weihts as last week so i was def. streonger here, then moved onto RDLs.....

    next was wide stance sumo DLS with 25s on each side then jsut added weigh from tehre so i had to squat real low and really squeeed my glutes at teh top of each rep, these were brutal, but im trying to target my glutes when possible.......

    last was 3 sets of leg curls and 3 sets o leg ext last set was a double drop, then flexing and stretching after those drop sets ........ tomorrow will def. be an off day cu ill eb extremely sore, gonna do sum light cardio to get teh blood flowin though and hopefully ill find time to do some foam rolling as well

    I do when i start to feel "run down" or wiped out, it's hard to explain but maybe joints will bother you or you just won't feel 100%, i do 1 week of lighter weights with higher reps like 15-20 you don't want to go too light but i would pick a weight that is like 20% lower than your normal working sets, this way you get blood moving stimulate the muscle but don't kill yourself with heavy weights. For me 1 week did the trick and i felt 200%
    Keep up the good work man workouts look intense!
    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    That type of **** could be from diet, how you slept the night before, if you used a bit more of a certain muscle during your previous exercises, if you came back to that muscle before it fully healed, if it's a full moon... A bunch of stuff.

    If you can't increase in weight in one exercise during a workout but you can in others youre on the right track.

    I usually chalk it up to the fact that I exerted myself more in the other movements and my body just doesn't have enough to keep the progression going for that day. If this happens for weeks on one lift, check your mechanics and/or switch the order up.

    yea im not too concerned, i was stronger on everything else but it was jsut od that my fist eercise iw asnt ...i dunno

    anyways, today was back and i was stronger on all lifts.....next week i will change up what lifts im doing for 2 weeks then come back to these and see how strenght is coming along..... Ive been doing alot more width exercises, for the next 2 weeks gonna go for more thickness exercises, liek heavy t bars and closegrip pulldowns.


    also at teh end of the workout i was sooo focuse don on my seated calf raises for sum reason...... it was the only calf exercises i got to but i was able to get 4 sets with 2 drop sets but with amaign contractions and drop to stanidng bw raises with stretches at the end.......i feet were like twitching for at leaast a half an hour after, felt great....with calfs u really gonna squeee the top of the motion and im starting to learn to do athat better, and man does it kill lol but fels amazing!
