    Not under the circumstances.
    I suspect as your hormones realign your gonna see some interesting stuff happen.
    Strength
    Endurance
    Mood
    Overall drive just in life
    Motivation

    Alll of these come as test levels rise. Since you started in a deficit youll see the full spectrum of benefits.


    The volume.....ouch.
    How you feeling? I feel like your gonna run outta gas after a couple of weeks like that.

    Just because your training so many bodyparts at once and using RP sets you dont want to do 3 sets of 10 before a RP set of 19.
    There is just no purpose and its wasting energy for the RP set. Instead I suggest doing it like this=
    Example:
    20lbs 3 reps
    40lbs 3 reps
    60lbs 3 reps
    80 lbs RP 10,5,3.

    In this way youll have MUCH more strength going into the RP set and if your really giving 100% in the 1 RP set you dont need the 3x 10 at a weight thats not challenging you anyways.
    1 set. 110%
    Just my 2c. Less is more with warmups.

    I might try that, the first week my legs were in pain, but right now I feel great, legs are a little sore, and how long do you think it will take for the hormones to affect the psuedogynocomastia?

    Honestly its hard to say.
    For now lets focus on getting hormones into proper ratio/ levels.
    Gyno is one of those things.....depending on how long its been there and the cause it can sometimes go really fast and never return but sometimes nothing but surgery will alleviate it and even then Ive seen it return after surgery.
    IN your case If i recall is was pubertal gyno meaning it happened naturally during or around puberty.
    This is the toughest type and frequently even high doses of nolvadex wont budge it.

    Lets get things in proper relation. Hopefully we see a significant change in size of the masses over the course of the cycle.
    If, after the cycle is over the gyno hasnt subsided or has only slightly declined we can talk (in private) about how to address it pharmaceutically.

  4. Get some Raloxifene, might help with that adolescent gyno. Incline dumbbell bench will also help improve chest aesthetics. Otherwise see a doctor about gyno surgery options although I'm not sure health insurance would cover it.

    Could actually make it harder to lose fat.

    #1 you're training on an empty stomach meaning lower energy, strength, endurance, stamina, energy, motivation...

    #2 when you do eat, your body will store that food as fat, because your body thought it was starving, and fat is the main source of energy for humans. I don't know the exact terminology, but you catch my drift.

    #3 Eat 3-5 eggs with 1-2 packs(or servings. typically has 30g carbs per serving) of oatmeal. Trust me, it will not make you fatter. You will have a great source of protein (eggs) with a great and clean source of carbs(CLEAN carbs are your friend, losing fat or not) to power you through what you should make an INTENSE workout.

    #5 train vigorously with minimal rest periods (you may have to work up to it).
    Like I said, I know your body type, mine is the same. It's very frustrating I know man. Make each workout, each rep count. Train every time like it's your last workout ever. Train like your life depended on it.

    Do this for 3-6 months. YOU WILL SEE RESULTS. I GUARANTEE YOU. I HAVE YOUR BODY TYPE, THIS IS WHAT WILL WORK.

    Remember, carbs are not your enemy, even when losing weight. If your always depleted of carbs, you will not have enough energy. I mean clean carbs. Look up "complex carbs" brown rice, oatmeal, quinoa<----This one is packed full of delicious nutrients your body craves.

    Stay away from "simple carbs" basically sugar, dextrose, glucose.

    I do believe low carbs will help you lose weight, just don't go no carbs. There are "right" and "wrong" carbs.

    EAT LEAN MEAT. EAT FISH LIKE SALMON. Bcaas. Eat protein, protein, protein.

    You see, the more muscle you have, the more fat you will lose. Your turning your body into a fat burning machine. Stoking the coals, igniting the fire. Keep moving throughout the day to keep your metabolism up. GREEN TEA HELPED ME GO FROM 210 TO 165. EMPTY STOMACH.

    The only time I would suggest doing anything physical on an empty stomach would be bike riding, hiking,.walking running. But don't go overboard on fasted cardio.

    CLEAN DIET ALWAYS. NO ALCOHOL. NO CIGGS. NO FAST FOOD.

    I have you the tools. If you do this, and don't see results, will eat my own s*** lol.
    point #2 is false. body will always replenish glycogen levels before it stores fat.

    While it is true you will replenish glycogen first the body is primed for fat gain in this case.

    I NEVER train on an empty stomach and I sip on carbs, bcaas and some other stuff while training. Periworkout nutrition is extremely important for everyone but particularly for natty guys who are always fighting metabolism.

    I fast while sleeping and 2 hours before I eat in the morning.
    Otherwise I eat every 2 hours. 6 meals and I cut carbs at 8.
    10, 12, 2,5,7,9 plus a snack.

    I've tried training faster, eating an hour before, 2 before, right after (Like in the parking lot)
    Or an hour after etc 3tc etc. For me I like a min of 2 full meals before training and I eat about 1.5 to 2 hrs before training so I'm not full and in digestion mode. I supplement with intraworkout calories but fluid and I drink down the rest after so I'm getting bcaas and carbs during and right after. Meal 45 min after ish.

    I see alot of crazy things guys do. Some has science some doesn't.
    At the end of the day the biggest mistake I see is guys not really setting a goal and aiming for it. Like someone will say they want to get bigger and stronger but they are fasting and training fasted etc.
    Good luck with that....
    Set a goal and focus on that primarily.
    You want to get big and strong..fasting isn't the way to do it.
    Caloric surplus...that's how you do it.
    You want to get shredded? Starving still isn't the key. Small frequent meals, carb cycling, cardio, thermogenics.

    Yah i think as your hormones begin to align your going to really stsrt to feel good.
    Strong. Virgil. Mood will rise.
    Not even talking about physique. This will change over time as well but the overall wellbeing benefits will come first.
    The feeling your on steroids is accurate. Your feeling your own testosterone starting to rise. Which...is a steroid
