I have some economical problems lately, so I had to buy the cheapest Test-e possible. Here a pic:

hairygrandpa, Super Workout Bro!
Yes, thanks! It was gut wrenching and noisy. I was the drill sergeant. My training partner almost lost his temper, accusing me of "abuse of power". :)

Shoulders/Legs

Did it all. Like a good soldier. Too lazy to write it all down.

Doing partial squats from the lowest position for a couple of weeks is showing results! My training partner can't repeat the movement with more than 90lbs. (1 rep is: azz to grass is starting position, then slow 2 feet up, then slow down azz to grass). I'm doing now 10 reps with 225lbs.
I can feel how my knees are getting better by the day, I'm able to jog again, even to jump. That was impossible a year ago. Despite having hairy legs, I can see some definition for the first time on my quads.

I just do, barely. Maybe shape of DB helps, plates stand out some. My training partner can't touch ground. I'm "special" :) LOL
I would highly recommend you reconsider this. Dumbbell flyes already put your shoulder at tremendous risk.

Our boy at AthleanX actually had a video on this where he talked about getting too much of a stretch on flyes and injuries to the shoulders. He actually suggests the solution is to do dumbbell flyes lying in the floor. I have been doing this and I think I actually like it.

On the floor? That is actually a good idea, because you can start from a resting position (floor)! Will do those! Thank's , good suggestion!

I tend to like the deep motion from an incline bench or seated flye machine with pulley, but then I have back issues and gangly volleyball player arms. But since I fractured my T4-T5 this seems like a good idea to try.

Yeah, the only issue is that if you work out alone, it can be tough to get heavier dumbbells into position. When on a bench you can rest them on your legs and then kick them up...this is less practical when your legs are on the floor. But I started doing them this way just because I saw the video. I used to go for a deep stretch too - not to the floor - but past parallel. I've been doing these with 10 second negatives so I feel much more secure on the floor and able to push a little further.

Wish I could take credit for it...Athleanx has great stuff. That guy impresses me.

But when I saw that video, and it starts off with him saying an exercise I did a lot is really bad - my initial thought was that I wasn't going to find it useful. Then it got to the part where he is like...do it on the floor and I thought, "Yeah, why the fack not? Why have I not thought of this before???"

Of course it can... debauchery is quite predictable, and is often planned. It just means excessive indulgence in sensual pleasures, like say planning a night at the hotel with the wife for dat der hotel sex...

Well done, and of course when she realized it you told her she was too beautiful for you to settle for lesser quality flowers than the ones she had grown with her love....

BOOM from Cheap bastard to Super Sweetheart IN ONLY 5 seconds of BULLSHlT!

Nah, nothing romantic happened. Giving her her own flowers as a gift did not upset her much, she knows me by now.

Yesterday was Back day, went smooth.
Tomorrow chest and arms. Because of working schedule, feeder workout plan got a bit scrambled.
Trying to lean out more. Started with 25mg Winstrol as addition to my TRT test dose, to spice things up.

Chest-Arms.

Nothing to report. No extraordinary lifts. Some shoulder hiccups doing flies.
Now radically cutting calories down to 1000/d for as long I can (2-3 days before cheating?).

8-10 hours sleep every day. Believe me, its age related when strength and energy fluctuates a lot. Two years ago, with 48, I was hammering out awesome training sessions each workout. Now, most workouts are "okay", some are sh1tty and a very few are awesome. I'm not complaining -but it is what it is. It may hit you too in a few years -but we both will keep fighting!

I'm glad that I'm training intuitively, meaning, I know what part to train -but I chose the exercises on how I feel. Also no weight goals on how much weight to lift -or how often. If a exercise feels "good", I may hammer out 4-8 sets -or even try to go for a 1-5 reps max weight. If it feels "off", I just do 1-2 sets and shrug it off. Today, flies felt "off", so I did dips and 21's with the incline press machine.
Rocket3015 and BEAST73 , how do you handle it? Have you a training plan with specific exercises, weights used and reps per set -or are you doing it like me, intuitively?

I know I wasnt asked but I'll say I know what bodypart I want to train. I have an idea of which exercise and an idea of how many sets I wanna do. But I let my body tell me how much weight to do each day.

Yeah, hairygrandpa. As long as I’m moving my muscles it’s a good day.

I have an arm and chest day, a leg day, and a back day each week. I do focus hard for 3-4 months on lagging body parts. Currently, it’s deltoids on arm day, hamstrings on leg day, and trapezoids on back day. For compound lifts, it’s always bench press on arm day, squats on leg day, and deadlift on back day.

Getting stronger and keeping it simple.

You’re doing great work!

I know in advance what muscle groups I will be working on each day, and some evening I will go to the gym and set up my weights for the next day for my worm up/first set, but from there out I do what feels good on that day. Some days I change it totally from what I had set up. So I definitely Go With The Flow. I enjoy my time in the gym (except cardio) so I do what I feel like that day.

Good to know I'm not alone. I know a lot of members here who follow strict training plans with progressive overload, pushing limits every workout. This would bore me to death -and I would fall into depressions when I don't met the goals set.

I really have no choice but to train instinctively at the moment. I enjoy training this way but it is not always the easiest way to track progress. I enjoy it much more when I know I can push things harder.

Yes, one loses track of progress -but as one goes to near -or failure, my guess is it gives you gainz anyway. I just hate it to have a training journal that forces me to do certain exercises that are progressively harder to do. It causes kind of anxiety to me.

Time for progress pics, will try to take some at night.

Yes, remember I said the same thing before I went instinctive. Dealing with the injuries I am right now I can't even come close to following a strict program. There would be too many things I couldn't do which would make me feel as if I were failing and that would take the enjoyment out of my workouts. So right now I train for as much enjoyment as I can get out of it while trying to pay attention to how I trained it the last time and either improve or go with a totally different goal or rep range for that body part.

There is no way with me going to RPE8 and 9 on a lot of my stuff that I am not going to make progress. However I am sure that if I weren't deaing with the injuries then having a very basic structure that ensures progressive overload in at least one movement per body part would still provide better, or perhaps more predictable progress.
