All machines maxed out at 7 reps.

Now progressing to free weights.

Starting to look "normal" again (#oldmanmaypullout-yourspine-look)

Short update:
-still no surgery on hernias
-emergency repair on artificial lake came first
-no workout the last 14 days due to said lake draining, tons of fish slaughtering and other mess
-not much interest in the bodybuilding topic for now
-got obsessed with ashwagandha extract at a fairly high dose, noting awesome benefits from it, like:
*better and shorter sleep
*less anxiety
*no more BP spikes when getting stressed
*apparently not getting fat so easily now, holding my weight effortless

Will be back when surgery was done.

"Bulk supplements": 5:1 extract, mornings 1g before bed 2g .
I swear its a life changer for me. It lets me confront daily issues more relaxed.
Will be interesting to see if it has an effect on my blood sugar and lipids.
Man I've been off this forum for a while and I am so glad I came back and saw you still posting. Definitely was worried you may have passed while I was gone. You're good dude and I'm glad you're recovering is going well

Geez, I have to give ash another shot I guess. I do mix it into my sleep formula - that I custom make with ash from Bulk. It has never seemed to do much for me, but maybe I just haven't given it credit. I think it is highly over rated, tbh.

Still, I like putting it in the sleep formula because it is supposed to be so great and it is supposed to reduce cortisol...and I know reduced cortisol tends to have a positive effect on my sleep.

@hairygrandpa - great job with the deadlifts. I know you probably want to be further along but you can only take one step at a time. Your schedule does not matter, what matters is that you just keep taking one more step and in time it will come back.

Glad to see you fighting. Very motivating, even if you don't see it!

I’m pretty sure he was just taking a break. He reappeared a few months back to just let people know he was ok.

I was just thinking about hgp, weird timing for his thread to become active again. Anyway, I'm rooting for you, big guy, and I hope everything is okay for you and your family. Maybe when he's feeling more recovered and the coronavirus dies down a bit, we'll see him again?

The pseudo ephedrine was indeed a big help with appetite control initially for me.
Nah... Spurfy is nuts and just talks out of his ass. His PhD was created using publishing software. He’s never college-lectured in his life and has never published. In short: He’s a fraud.

Call me crazy, but I value anecdote from seemingly cautious individuals more than a degree when it comes to lifting and PEDs anyway.

I mean studies are nice to know what’s going on internally & why, but if a bunch of guys eat a pill and it blunts appetite...we know it blunts appetite lol.

Oops! I must have been mispoken..

I meant to say the coronavirus that leaked out of a Chinese laboratory, but not to be referenced as the Chinese virus as that would be racist. We can’t allow viruses to be vulnerable to discrimination during these times when a virus called COVID-19 is known to have originated in China :)
