    Yea I agree. But I only slept 4 hrs last night and took the low dose dhea and still feel very good today. So I may not even need the preg which is ok with me. Blood work will confirm later on.

    Thanks. All I needed. I'm still kicking it around in my head, but those are about the numbers I'd like also.

    It just depends on where you sit now and how you feel. It made a world of.difference for me personally. No real side effects unless some values are off but I am still.better off then before going on it.

    Digging threw past blood work here is a blue print for you also I miss quoted my test levels at 200mg btw.

    100mg per week 1 shot, 3 days after 800-900, 6 days after 300s
    125mg per week 1 shot, 3 days after 1000-1100
    200mg per week 1 shot, 7 days after 1500+, 14 days after 600-700

    So I have lowered my personal dosage too 80mg split for a total of 160mg per week.
    100mg had me feeling decent the first part of the week but low the rest. No real trt benefits. No AI.
    125mg had me feeling better the first 5 days of the week then low the last 2. Libido increase, better orgasms, and energy increase. Erase 25mg ed. Mild gyno issues. Blood work showed estrogen in range this way.
    200mg had me feeling good at first then worse quickly as I am dealing with now. Gyno issues to deal with somewhat. AI needed and still havent found a solution as 50mg erase wasnt enough here. I fell somewhere between 140-160mg would be perfect for me split. I will find out in time and with blood work. Idk if any of this helps you but I figured id share.

    Notes: Preg kept me up all night and left me feeling drained today. Still managed a strong and productive day. I am feeling frustrated and like I chasing my tale with this TRT issue. I have felt this way for quite awhile even before I lost insurance. After reviewing past bloods and remembering back to how I felt during each one I have decided to start back at square one. 200mg a week had me over 1500+ and is where I am now. This cant be to much higher then the end of the range. I dont feel good on this dose. I have felt good on higher doses in the past 300-400mg and at lower doses. So this dose isnt for me. I have zero intention of "cycling" anything major anytime soon as I have been progressing great in my eyes. Most I will consider as of now is ostarine pre meet. Back to my current issues. I tend to have better energy and libido at lower total dosages regardless. I have consistent nipple pain/gyno issues since my dose was upped by my doctor forever ago. Trying to address it has left me either in pain or crashing my estrogen and feeling flat with joint pain. I feel myself going to low with asin as of now. Becoming flatter and joints starting to ache, knees/elbows/shoulders. To boot I still have puffy nipples with pain. I lowered my dosage and will leave there as my levels come down and address issues as I go. It is not fun to start back over at squat one with my trt dose but I feel this is the best place to start. AI dosage and type will depend on test dose, also dhea and preg can wait for now. I may keep using the low dose dhea regardless as it will most likely become a constant. Most of you may think this is silly and to just get bloods and stop changing everything. I agree however I dont have the funds for 50-60$ blood work out of pocket atm. Will update as things progress.

    Yea I got to try one out not to long ago. It was brutal to be in and use. By far the most intense equipment I have ever used. It was a 2 ply chest and 3 ply arms. It was putting my arms to sleep just being in it and it took 30min just get on. I could barely get to a 2 board with 545. I have a video on FB of me doubling 545 off a 2 board and it is crazy fast. If i had money I would get one.

    Notes: great day all things considered with my pec. Focused on lower the bar with my speed but in control. It went great. Came down great paused and reversed with my more power and speed then normal. Very happy about that. Also hit 175X4 on sohp which isn't to far off from my all time best of 185x5. Hope to match that or beat by then end of this 3 week wave.

    5/14/14-ME LowerSquat w/ Buffalo Bar w/ Chains, 80% of best 1RM and add chains to failure w/ Wraps

    400x1

    400+40lbs chainx1

    400+80lbs chainx1

    400+120lbs chainx1

    400+160lbs chainx1

    400+200lbs chainx3, got tired of adding chains and doing sets. So I decided to just do a decently hard triple. My best in briefs only with this is 420+200lbs chainx3. So to near match this with just wraps is great to me. Being in gear for a year really helped my cns effect and top end. It didnt feel to heavy to hold. My back just didnt quite hold up like I wanted so I need to address this by continuing to overload with this and really focus on my back and bar positioning. This was not 100% but decently hard.

    Step Ups

    20x10

    30x10

    40x10 PR

    Banded Pullthrough

    Light Bandx3x10

    Side Bends

    45x10

    60x10

    70x10

    Notes: Most of what I needed to list is up top. Was squatting much faster into the hole today and made everything much easier as well and getting to depth. Will continue to move faster down with my squat and bench.

    Notes: very good and.tiring day. The squats went great. Set the chains up a new way that was much more efficient. The banded pulls were brutal. I didn't measure the tension until.half way thru our sets. We should have made it double for 100lbs at the top.and 30lbs at the bottom. Was still impressed to maintain speed with such a heavy top weight. Went easier on the gms bc we were fried by this point.

    Couple notes: considering trying out trest soon to see how it treats me and see if I want to run it into a meet. Same with ostarine. Also my box squats are more like squating to a box with a pause and not actually sitting on to the box. This is for depth reasons and to help build my comfort in the hole even in a fatigued state.

    5/19/14-me bench
    Wide grip bench, 2 fingers wider then raw comp grip
    275x5
    295X5
    Sohp
    155x5/5. Was focusing on using my shoulders more this week then last week as I have an imbalance. Working the muscle more and less of the movement.
    Db floor press
    60x10/10, subd dips since they have been bothering my ac joints.
    One arm db chest supported pendlay row
    80x8
    100X8/8/8, team mate has an imbalance we are going to try to correct with some unilateral work. It won't hurt me either to do it.
    Doubled mini rope pushdowns
    100 total reps
    Mini band pullapart complex w/ 1 extra overhand and underhand set at the end
    10 reps each way.
    Notes: did some wider grip benching today for some bottem end work. Like illegal wide but wide for me. Stayed in the higher rep range 5-6 to avoid injuries. Was very impressed to get 5 at 295. These were tough but not brutal. I might need to widen my grip in general. We will see when test day comes. My team mate noticed when I bench wide/medium/close the bar tracts to my left side. The pec I keep hurting no less. That is also the side with the weaker shoulder and triceps. So I benched the bar in the opposite way going to the right and I felt only my left shoulder and triceps work and my right pec. My right pec is my weaker pec also. Not sure how I want to address this. I am very conscious now to make sure the bar touches evenly and I have been trying to fix these imbalances for some time. Maybe do some volume work going to the right to even it out? Not sure.

    Notes: didn't hit any prs on my test day for conventional today. My main goal the last 12 weeks was to push my raw conv pull up as much as possible as doing that helps my sumo pull. Decided to test my sumo pull after and not go 100% but see how it felt. Did a pretty smooth 525 that I was impressed with. Will be making my sumo pull a priority again after this cycle. Need to make some program adjustments also to allow better assistance work and effort as well as recovery so I will do that tonight.

    Hardly lol. I dont like raw work all that much. Ready for some gear! But I think another 6 weeks will do me some good and give me time to get all my gear adjusted. Thanks man. Things seem to be moving well. Better then I expected haha.

    Looking back I made my biggest jumps in progress using doubles and triples. I have gotten caught up I'm.singles lately. Testing myself weekly instead of building myself. Will still plan some singles work but will also plan some doubles and triples on me days with the option for a single if feeling amazing and mentally ready to break a pr.

    Nice session lou. I lold at your pr - so much weight.

    Are the 100s or 125s rubber plates (what im really asking is are they flat at the ends)? Honestly it might not matter for this trick, but you might be able to add dimes to each side of the db and tie it all up with a couple of light bands.

    Haha thanks man. Top end is definitely my strong point. They are round plates not rubber flat ones. Idk if that trick would work.

    Gpp: walk with sled 3 laps with 45lbs on sled
    Notes: speed work was hard today. I was very bloated which didn't help. I decided to use the mastadon bar today. That bar always gives me issues but I will most likely be using that or the squat bar at meets so I plan to do all my speed work with either of those bars from now on to get my form dialed in on them. Decided I need to move faster in my workouts and try to include some gpp when not doing speed pulls. Will be transitioning back into gear this next 6 week cycle so I am beginning to prep my body for that.

    5/26/14-me bench
    2 board press with bands, doubled mini bands, about 80lbs band tension at the top.

    Unilateral mini band touchdowns
    100 total reps
    Mini band pullaparts complex with an extra overhand and underhand set at the end
    10 reps each way 2 sets
    Notes: starting to transition some me lifts back over to gear specific. Hit a hard single today with about 415 top weight. Did some good ohp today and really hit the weaker shoulder hard. Did the lift to build my bench not to build the movement itself. Tried underhand pull downs the first time in forever and they felt great. Will try to include more underhand work in the future.

    80x10 pr
    Notes: was planning on doing a triple at 90% raw but my spotters racked it after one rep so I took 95% also. Then I wanted to see how 2 plys of ace material felt after 12 weeks of pretty much no gear. Blew up 605 And could have gone much heavier but shut it down anyways. Very happy with this lift. Trying some more direct erector type stuff as my training partner does it and attributes it to his 650 raw pull at 220. We will see how it goes.

    5/31/14-De lower
    De squat w/ light bands to parallel box, 50% bar weight

    Standing cable crunches

    Notes: was a decent day. Squats went great. Have some tightness in my right.shoulder if I can work out will make my set up smoother. Also my sumo form was everywhere today trying to dial it back in seeing what I like and don't like now with the break. Will probably stick my Chris duffin style set up for now. Allows me to get more rotation at the hips and tighter ingeneral. Partner passed put pulling today so things started to shut down.after that. He was ok. Not enough food+to many stims+not enough water+bands equaled him hitting the floor. Sucked.
