    I've definitely come around to the idea of progesterone supplementation for men on TRT. There was a guy (who used to be) active on this board, a 40+ year old AM veteran, who first introduced me to the concept. I think his name was @Whacked .

    Anyways, I don't really remember what these links say, but here is an initial body of literature to refer to on progesterone supplementation for men. May take you some time to get through it all.

    Here's SuppVersity on DHEA: http://suppversity.blogspot.com/2013...p-seconds.html I dont know what you can get out of there that would be helpful. I will say I don't immediately see the benefit of supplementing with DHEA while on testosterone, though. I would either use pregnenolone or progesterone.
    I read this over and I have a much better understanding now. He does state in the questions it can cause shutdown of cortisol and estrogen and.other androgens with dhea supplementation. Possiability for me being tired and dry? Maybe.

  6. 4/02/14-me lower
    Squat with buffalo bar
    380x1
    Add knee wraps
    420X1

    Reverse hyper
    70x10,10,10
    Leg raises
    Bwx12
    Bw+5x12
    Bw+10x12
    Notes: all squats felt much easier and faster then the previous weeks. Hit 30lbs over my comp lift 1rm I set 4 weeks ago today and it was fast but form started to break down a touch in the upper back tightness. I caught a stomach virus the past two days so I haven't gotten much food. But lots of water and pepto seemed to help. I skipped conditioning to being underfed. Happy with the day and called the squatting 1-2 sets early due to sickness also. Also switched back to my other brand test and already filling back out and feeling much better. So this tells me the other brand is most likely underdosed so I may go half and half or something to use it up. Not sure what to do with it yet.

  7. 4/04/14-de bench
    De bench w/ doubled mini bands
    135+bandsx8x3

    15x12/25x10
    15x12/30x10
    20x12/35x10
    Notes: the rack was taken so I just decided to do a close grip 3 board. That was about a 345 top weight. Having trouble completing full range reps with pull-ups hence the mix. To many years of doing them.wrong I. Guessing. Addressing it now.

    60x10/10 each way
    45x12/first 2 sets 10 reps each way.
    Notes: good day. I miss grooved the last set which made it brutal. I might have had a little more in me had.I not done that.

    65x10
    Notes: i got exactly what I wanted today. I was very happy with that pull. It was faster and stronger then my 545 off a 4 inch block. I might get a conv deadline suit and try that out since my raw pulling is going so good.

  18. 4/16/14-me lower
    Raw squat w/ wraps

    Notes: so in 6 weeks of raw training I have hit all my goals I set for 12 weeks. A 545 raw conventional pull and a 500 raw squat with wraps. So I guess I will just continue the next 6 weeks as written and go for even bigger prs before throwing gear back into the equation.

  19. Your not messing around with these PRs! Awesome work
