    Perhaps a moment of misguided candor, but I will say, I paused a few times, thinking you are a little cocksure. But then it was revealed to me that you are quite young, much younger than I inferred based on the manner in which you express yourself, and it suddenly all made sense.

    You're a bright young man. And nothing wrong with being young and cocky. Add some AAS, and you may lose the "y" though, lol. Just playing with you bro. Keep up the good work. I am enjoying your posts.

  3. There's nothing pathetic about getting back in the gym after an injury.

    But you, you're pathetic! (I did say I would pass judgement, didn't I?)

    This. You haven't hung up your belt yet, Swanson, and that's something you should be proud to hang your hat on.

    To recap: Hang your hat, don't hang your belt.

    Y'all might not feel that way after seeing this...

  7. 5/3/1 Week 1, Day 1

    Agile 8, PVC roll everything, LAX smash everything, elliptical warm up.

    Squats
    Warm Ups-probably too much and I ended up fatigued I think. It was my first time back in months, and I wanted to be loose & ready. Overdid it.
    235x5
    270x5
    Right here, based on how my adductors felt, I knew it was over for the day. My legs were jello already. Ditched 305.
    270x3

    Down sets
    225x3x5 (I'm a reps x sets guy)

    This was a hell of an ego blow, not to mention a colossal struggle. I'm sure you'll see me miss depth a couple times, I'll drop my chest, I'll get loose...I fawking forgot how to squat basically.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIGgVvSs7uk

    Convo DL
    225x5x5

    Planks
    Side planks
    Leg raises

    Done.

    I pegged my max today at 400, but I think I gave myself 50# there. I'll assume the same on DL; my max is probably 450 today. Time to back the weights down.

    Just dispute it and it'll work, dispute the claims, claim fair use, and copy that text (the fair use option) into the text box and then it'll work.

  11. I remember struggling after my back injury. Conditioning gone, core gone, tweaked my back wrapping my knees one day, 315x6 with knees wrapped was a grinder, couldn't find my deadlift form for months on end. Six months later I'm stronger than ever. This is a great time to hammer volume and build yourself a base, a platform to grow from.

    We know you're not patient, Swanson, so this will be a huge test. But you can come out on top.

    EDIT: The video wasn't as terrible as you made it out to be. You know what to do, and it will all get better. My technique always needs lots of practice, I'd forget how to squat too if I took as long of a layoff as you did

  13. Looking good, big man. You already mentioned the little things to fix.

  14. Thanks gents. Honestly it didn't feel too bad, and after looking at rep speed on 270x3, I'm not sure why I thought I was done. They certainly weren't grinders.

    I think I was wary of my adductors. They were alarmingly "crampy", and I'm not trying to get hurt on day 1. I was pissed when I left the gym, but overall I guess I'm happy I can still train.

    For Sean & Herder (who blast me on diet-after my PWO meal (clean) I was absolutely ravenous, so I ate a piece of taco pizza and a pint of sorbet.

    Like Wendler said "a powerlifter worrying about how much he weighs is like a bodybuilder worrying about how much he bench presses".

  15. Pfft, you call this a log?

    In...


  16. Maybe your first week can just be you getting back into the groove of things. Maybe that can be your first cycle, too, I dont know how you want to swing it. Then after the week/cycle you can come back but hit it hard. I don't know. I didn't exactly understand if you had actually been back to the gym or not before this session.

    To train squat, no. I hadn't squatted for 4 months or so prior to this session.

    I might do that, drop the TM more and train that for 2-3 weeks then reevaluate.

    You're going to be back at the big weights in no time. Don't even worry about it.

    2) workout recovery. You know how it is when you come back from a layoff...brutal. Eat & sleep will be my protocol.
    1) Not anymore.

    2) I do know how it is, and your way of thinking may help with recovery. Problem is, it could hurt in other areas. I don't think that level of increase would cause much damage, and I would be willing to risk it for the results. That's just my less harder working side talking though.

    Finally. Pfft.

    I'm going to go with napalm on the TRT here. I've got my dosage balanced perfectly with my e2 consistently <20, my hematocrit around 45, and my levels nice and stable around 700. It's taken the better part of 2 years to get here, I'd best not rock the boat for another 150ng/dL of total test.

    I'm boring and non-adventurous.

  24. Why do you like to keep your E2 < 20?

    Personally, I like mine around 40-50, even if it renders me a little wet and more hysterical, lol. Joint health, less pain, lipids, bone strength, etc. Thing is, like with T, you have to take account of SHBG, which effects bioavailability.
