I roll it out with a lacrosse ball but I really needed a good static stretch in that area to fix it. It's a difficult area to directly stretch it seems but I played with some different things and found one that seems to hit it well. I've been working around it for months now so it's time I just fix it. Ill be squatting in 5 or 6 hours so in just gonna stretch and sit in bodyweight squat variations throughout the day until then. Should be good I'm thinking.
    I will also suggest a good Chiro that is certified in ART if that's available to you. It has helped me so much. If not, just getting adjusted regularly by a chiro is a must doing what we do :-)

    So I hit legs today. I'm getting iffy with this estro control because my shoulder got to be achey today along with my knee and that is the only thing I've added into my regiment.

    Anyways worked up to 3 plate 3x3, not too heavy but I my eating was a bit off today and last night. Then front squats 2x8 and SLD 2x8, finished with calves. Was just glad to get through it without issue considering my last lower workout was a pile of dicks.

    Didn't use the Pwo because I have to sleep earlier for work but I definitely missed it.

    Noticed a slightly better sense of well being as well as my previously stated libido increase. Will likely grab a 2nd bottle and see how that goes as well as extend the log.

    I was able to pull sld's from a deficit which usually kills my hip so that's a good sign.

    how many REV PCT caps you taking?
    arimistane can have the drying out effect, but it is not target-specific (one area) rather affects the whole body when dosed too high
    if such is the case, a simple 1 cap reduction in dosing usually remedies the issue

    Yeah I get that it's just my knee and shoulder tend to be the first to give issue with this kind if thing. Ill reduce by 1 and see where that puts me. I've been breaking out lately which is a good sign for test elevation so I'm happy about that. Couldn't care less if I'm kinda pizza faceish for a while.


    ^^and no I don't use fish oil.

    I find fish oil helps with joint pain. Hopefully though, reducing by one cap helps.

    I've never had much luck with it but maybe ill give it another shot. Might have some around here.

    Anyways hit shoulders today, hit a rep PR for military press even though my energy levels were 3/10. Then just some side raises and tris, called it good. No idea where my weight is at because my scale is busted. Will find out in the next few days.

    First day taking less rev pct hopefully aches clear up a bit. DAA has me feeling good and I'm pretty strong it seems. Pwo doin it's thing.

    Cool deal.

    If it was in fact the culprit, reducing the REV PCT by one cap will help relieve some of the joint issues.

    By lowering estrogen you eliminate some extra water retention and the joints aren't quite as "lubed up" if you will.

    Although lowering estrogen does result in slightly higher testosterone levels, when crossing the threshold to joint pain and discomfort there is no extra benefit worth the risk of injury.

    Good call by Snagency and good job in the gym! Keep working. Looks like things are ramping up.

    Yeah I get that. Joints feeling like they did on pharma arimidex. Spent a lot of time last year working around injuries so I'm really trying to avoid that.

    Back workout later today.

    Yeah, injuries are NO fun. Did you decide to drop down by one cap to see if it helps?

    How did the back session go?

    Yeah I actually dropped down to just 1 cap. Should be fine like that I hope. It will also give me enough to continue using through the 2nd pure test bottle I'm planning to get.

    Back wasn't great pretty much just hit some bent rows and some t bar rows, did some rear delt Iso and finished with grip work holding onto 3 and then 4 plates for time. We did initially start with deads but for some reason or another my deads have really sucked lately. Have hit 5plate for 4 and 505 for 3 in the past but on most days lately getting even 4 off the ground is hard. I dunno, tweaking my program a bit and will see if that helps.

    Hell yeah, 5 plates for 4 is impressive. I've attempted that for my past two back days and I can only get it off the floor and then my body shuts down. I had that same issue with squats. I used to squat so much more. About 30lbs heavier than I can now. I just stopped focusing on squats as much as I used to and I lost it. I'm sure you will get it back up there.

    Yeah it seems like I can only really focus on 2/3 of the lifts at a time and right now that's bench and squat. Deadlifting is by far the most aggressive lift and most days I just don't have it in me to go HAM. But thanks ill be trying.

    Pretty common actually for one lift to fall behind as far as progress. I like the idea of changing things up for a bit and take the focus off them.

    Another crap workout. Def not eating enough. Ever since i started this new job my gains have gone downhill. I already am eating a ton it feels like but I guess I'm going to have to up it more. I was 230 a couple weeks ago, bout 224 now so that explains it all more or less. I want to be ****in fat damnit.

    Tomorrow is a rest day so ill just pig out.

    Pwo helped today although it cuts into my sleep because I workout around 7:30.

    DAA is working it feels like. Boner city over here.

    Knee didn't bother me today which us a good sign and my shoulder wasn't as bad. Using 1 Cap Ed of rev. Pct.

    New jobs are tough sometimes to adapt to. What are you having a problem with? Not bringing enough food or just no time to eat it?

    Keep pushing forward bud.

    Just not getting enough in. I eat big clean meals mostly but still eat a pizza a day and ice cream and stuff. Not enough. Gonna buy some gainer powder.

    I've been as heavy as 260 before but I came out of my last dieting period real steady and my metabolism is fired up still.

    Yeah I don't work the next few days so I should be more able to kill it in the gym. Bench workout later today.

    And thanks, tomorrow is actually my 3 year mark as a serious lifter.
