  1. i would try dth then. 42$ gets you basically a 2 month supply. It is a natty test booster, and our test levels are running at optimum performance, but it covers so many basis and is the most complete test booster IMO. It frees up test from sex hormone binding globulin (shbg) which renders the test useless, it stops aromitization, it has tribulus, it convers LH into test (that is why there is a loss of libido at higher dosages), it provides serious aggression, it has crazy NO production, semen volume is off the charts! its like everythign you could possably want, they dont show the ingredients on NP anymore, but on the bottle the ingredients list is so freaking long!!!!!!!!!


  2. Okay heres what I would suggest you try for a workout:
    Routine:

    Day 1: Chest and Biceps
    Preacher curl DB preacher curls 1 set
    standing Barbell curl 1 set or standing DB curls (pick your favourite )
    DB bench press 1 set (elbows at 45 degrees out)
    Incline DB bench 1 set
    Flat DB flies 1 set

    Day2:Legs, Abs
    Squats 1 straight set, 1 widowmaker
    Leg press 1 set.
    Abs exercise of your choice

    Day3: Back, Triceps, Forearms
    Rack Deads 1 set
    1 arm row 1 set
    Wide grip pull downs 1 set
    Skull crushers 1 set
    Tricep pushdowns 1 set
    Reverse cable curls 1 set

    Day5: Shoulders, Abs
    DB Shoulder press 1 set
    Behind the neck press 1 set
    Abs exercise of your choice


    Im guessing you are a fan reasonably high volume workouts? so im guessing this will seem like not enough volume (it will to most people), just make sure the workout is god dam intense, By using only 1 set per exercise, you can ensure you give that exercise your absolute all, this makes it easy to judge how well you are doing and to ensure continual progression. This workout layout also allows you to train abs twice a week, which is always good unless you have particulaly bad recovery ability.

  3. you should post some before pics up! by the end of this log you'll hit your goals for sure, the guys on this websight... some of them are pure genious, i could not have put on 40lbs in 4 months while staying under 10% bf if it wasnt for them!!!!

    random i dont understand your workout you suggested. you mean like 1 working set of rest pause with like 3 warmup sets? because your basically suggestion he does only 3-6 sets per day?!?!?!?!? i do like 16-20 sets a day

  5. I'll read some reviews, at age 19 I feel my testosterone levels should be pretty high already. Especially after I incorporate squats and deadlifts. I just need to break this 275 plateau!!!

    No access to any dumbells at the moment, plus I'm trying to break a barbell plateau anyway. I'm wanting to do reps with 225 again.

    I workout at home, no access to a leg press machine.

    Can't do rack deadlifts, pullups are overall better than pulldowns seeing that involve more of the core. I have no problem with skull crushers or tricep pressdowns; however, dips involve more of the core so it's more preferred.

    Behind the neck presses aren't my thing.

    I really prefer 2-4 sets of 4-6 reps personally; however, I appreciate the suggestions.

    Do those rack deads and the squat and widowmaker with all out intensity, you should easily brake through the plataue like it wasnt even there

  8. Okay, good luck anyway

    That's what I need! 10% bodyfat! I just need more mass at the moment.

    I have before / after pics, but the before pics were taken while I was 17 and the after pics while I was 18. The most recent after pic I have is the one I had displayed on my avatar. If you view my MySpace, there's a back / trap / and calf picture. There's also my display picture in which I was just relaxed in my hallway before my workout.

    yeah im 21 and my test levels are maxed, but DTH did do something for me for sure! probably crippling the shbg, stoping est conversion, and converting LH helped a lot with the aggression.

    it probably didnt necessarilly boost my test. it just got my body using it optimally! like im sure i didnt produce any more test, i was just using it most efficient. My body is probably already maxed out on test production!

  11. Purely out of interest what do you think it converted your lh to?

    Yeah, good point. I might run a routine which requires squatting 3 times per week, almost like a powerlifting set up to try to catch my lower body up with my upper body. Plus, it'll increase testosterone. I'm going to go with this chest / biceps, back / triceps, etc. set up at the moment though.

  13. nah i mean take a picture RIGHT NOW. and that is the before pic for this log!!!!!!!!

    NP, thanks for your suggestions, I appreciate it. If you see something I may be doing wrong in my training, I welcome any suggestions from anyone that thinks they can enhance my method.

    Ah, I catch your drift. I will indeed get some pictures to consider "before pictures" then compare them in around December.

  16. Hey GymRat, i think your putting to much emphasis on squats and DL boosting test. It does boost test, but to my knowledge its very temporary because you body thinks its getting into a fight while you do something as intense as squats or DL so it releases test to help you through the traumatic experience!

    Maybe like how some people squat heavy weight for 6 reps before sprinting. It helps out their sprint time. Maybe if you did something like that on Chest day, but i dunno. I dont think the test boost from squats is that significant. I think its an old wives-tale from coaches to convince their athletes to squat! But I could be wrong about this one!

    I found a scientific study a while back that stated that testosterone levels dissipate back to normal or slightly above normal levels anywhere from a few hours or a few days after squatting.

    For weightlifters who train with high intensity, 3-4 days per week, we demand a constant high range of testosterone.

  18. very nice. yeah i can even feel it. I took a break from lifting for about a year (i been lifting on and off since 14), and the past 5 months i've gotten back into lifting and i can feel the test levels just elevated all the time! feelin' like an alpha male HOMIE

    hey put your old avi up its cooler cuz its YOU

    It looked too blurry to me. I'll update the avatar with a pic of me when I put the new "before" pics up. Perhaps a back shot.

  20. YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

  21. Thought I'd throw this on here, it's a video filmed about five weeks ago of me bench pressing 265 pounds.

    YouTube - 265 x 1; bench press

    Excuse the feet in the air, I did that for a couple months to try to prevent a back arch for optimal stimulus; however, this is 265 pounds and it was filmed roughly about five weeks ago. It wasn't a 1RM, this was done early in the morning before I had breakfast and a sloppy warm up, my 1RM is around 275, give or take.

    hmmm, im on my weird computer so i cant see the video but ill check it out later. I thought arching the back was good for getting more weight up?

  23. It is, as it decreases the length that the bar as the travel on the eccentric / concentric portions to the range of motion; however, the con of using this is it decreases the stimulus. So if you were to train for primary hypertrophy/secondary strength, the suitable approach would be keeping the back as flat as possible.

  24. Day 1 | Week 1 | Back & Triceps

    Pullup:
    +5 lbs | 5 sets | 5 reps of alternating hand placement, wide grip, close grip, middle grip

    Barbell Row:
    115 lbs | 3 sets | 8 reps

    Deadlift:
    225 lbs | 1 set | 5 reps

    Dips:
    BW | 3 sets | 8 reps

    Close grip bench press:
    135 lbs | 2 sets | 10 reps

  25. Eat more, your diet is a little light for a young guy who wants to train heavy. Don't get caught up in trying to watch what you eat, you will be sacrificing the size and strength you should be gaining now.
