    I don't want to burn carbs, I want to burn FAT, damnit! LOL

    Good. PDK is an enzy.e that switches energy metabolism between fat and carbs. During periods of obesity, PDK becomes elevated which switches on fat burning. PDK also becomes elevated during a caloric deficit. So...my theory is...that being obese screws up your ability to metabolize carbs, and then dieting makes it worse.

    So yeah, overall you want to burn fat, but if you cannot burn carbs and can only burn fat, your body will need to store the carbs as fat before the carbs can be burned.

  3. Today will be a "pump" day for chest, back and legs.
    All about form and maximal blood flow.

    Had a scoop of radiate and 10mg cialis. Intra workout 50gr Karbolyn and a huge post workout meal.
    I'm back in 2 hours.

  4. Gym: "Pump up the limbs"

    11 exercises
    -3 back
    -3 chest
    -3 legs
    -1 abs
    -1 shoulder

    Each exercise 3 sets of 21's (partials).

    Pump could have been better, maybe the radiate has vasoconstrictor substances, counteracting cialis.

    Yes, but I really wanna bulk...on the other hand, I don't want to weight above 220. It's a paradox melting my mind! LOL

    Tren is the devil! I had ALL of the sides, damnit, can't take it. HGH bloats me up like a corpse in warm water -and anavar was my last cycle.

    Yeah Tren is the worst. It was the last cycle I did and made it the last one ever probably! That's how bad it was for me lol

    As I remember, you had shoulder surgery. Are you training again? How is it going?

    Yes I did. I've been back in the gym for about a year now, but only just recently in the past few weeks started getting back into a groove and feeling good. It still bothers me quite a bit on some movements, but I think that is something I'll just have to deal with forever. Other than that, things are good, slowly getting some size back and looking like I have actually been in a gym before. Lol

  14. Stay the diet course as you are looking great HG. That stubborn abdominal fat took years to put on.
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:
    myBloodTracker for IPhone and IPad

  15. I agree! Youíre doing great and we can see the changes! Just try to stay positive and it will happen!!

  16. Arms day

    Chin ups /SS/ elevated push ups w. handles 3.1.1

    Chin 15
    Push 24
    Chin 11
    push 18
    chin 8+3
    push 15

    ez-bar behind neck triceps extensions
    55lbs tut 4.1.1 x15/15 - Injury !!!

    That's it. While lowering the ez-bar after the last rep, sharp pain in right shoulder, you know what kind of pain...the "something just ruptured" pain.
    Its supraspinatus again but more where the joint capsule is. When trying to adjust my pants, like lifting them up at the hips, pain is sharp and almost unbearable.

    Popped 2x diclofenac, now preparing BPC and PEG-MGF injections.

    GOD DAMN !!!!
    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

  17. Here what I will do:

    -BPC-157 250mcg/d 1 injection/near injury IM mornings (lots of bac water to up volume to penetrate more tissue)
    -PEG-MGF 150mcg 1 injection/near injury IM evening (lots of bac water to up volume to penetrate more tissue)
    -TB-500 loading phase 0.7mg day subQ, tummy
    -Cut out any AI use for awhile AND upping test a bit. I need elevated estrogen to help healing....limp d1ck, here we go

    Monday I will test the waters to see what exercises I can/can't do. It seems not as bad as the previous injury. I have free range of motion. Pulling my pants on the sides up, it hits me like being stabbed in my shoulder by a rusty nail, that's on fire, covered in salt and being twisted.

    My first BPC injection was terrible. The injury is located where all nerves come together to have an orgy, or something.

    Now I'm going to the farm with the family. To relax, I will have 2gr of phenibut, have not used it for months.

  18. Sorry to hear that!! I hope it's nothing serious..

    Thank's for the empathy.
    It is not as bad as my previous tear, none the less, it is a downer. I feel really depressed. It is so disappointing, especially when you were careful to not injure yourself. It happened out of nowhere, without a reason. No heavy weight, no sudden movement, I was warmed up good, every movement was controlled.

    I'm packing, going to have a bonfire and some vodka with coke zero. The phenibut is kicking in too, making me more social.

    Happy lifting to you all!

    You need to let go a little of the obsession with being "bigger" - you're pretty big, but who the heck cares if no one can even tell that you lift because it's all hidden? You are looking good and the work is paying off - don't let your brain f#ck this all up on you.

    Try 750 mg of Apigenin, split into (3) 250 mg servings/day - you can get a bottle from Swanson and it will cost you about $15 for a week...but I bet you'll be suprised. After 2 weeks, you can cut it down to about half. I'd say the stuff is about 3X as effective as Ibuprofen in my experience...would love to see if you'd have the same experience.

    Did you really hurt yourself? Or are you looking for an excuse to end the diet? Because...I see this as all the more reason to double down on the diet. Since you can't be bulking now (hard to bulk and put on muscle if you can't lift all-out) - double down and diet, diet, diet so that you can make progress outside of the gym.

    And I am hoping it clears up quickly ...maybe just a pull and it will heal faster than you think.

  23. I am sure you’ll heal like the wolverine.. Don’t deviate.. stay focused.

  24. You gotta take care of yourself! Hopefully it's not as serious as you're thinking.

    Off track (it's what I do), but when is your next vacation to the states?

    Congratulation, you found the one compound left I never tried! Seriously, will buy today.Thank you, bro, good find!

    Nah, I'm not a guy making up excuses, never was. If I quit, I'm a quitter -and I would admit it, no shame here.
    To the contrary, I doubled my efforts. Besides a little vodka, I had zero carbs the whole weekend.

    The tear is not that bad, until now there is only one specific movement I can't perform -but the pain is a 9 out of 10, I'm not exaggerating. 10 is when you are about to pass out, 9 is the perceived pain of a gout attack -or wiggling a metal hook in a broken tooth.
    The shoulder makes noises now, like its unstable in the socket. I'll investigate the damage on Monday in the gym and may start light rehab exercises.
