Ended up ok did to top sets @ 170kgs next week will do the same but add in a drop set. Depth marginal took a while to get the line right Press: Comp Bench Overload XL. Bench top set was pretty good so followed the squats and did 2 top sets best for a while. Pull: C44 Sumo the nemesis so did 4 sets @ 150kg as the first set someone forgot to hook the tendo up. Not till the last 2 sets did I get the line right. Shins closer and toes out and belt tighter on the last 2 sets. Notes: Mesocycle 1 Week 7, Weight on the down ward slide good session considering the work around the house over the weekend.

    Cholesterol is no issue over the short term, but ldl/hdl ratio means very little I'm afraid, unless the test is for oxidised LDL, and functional HDL there is no point to a test..

    Swimming might be a go, right now the thought of going to the gym sounds like a real chore..
  12. First cycle advice

    Not concerned about the cholesterol. Actually the best way to increase hdl is with fish oils which I am taking. That will hopefully keep my ldl/hdl ratio within reason.

  16. First cycle advice

    Don't worry about LDL-C, it's not a problem unless it becomes small particle LDL, and oxidised.. To reduce the likelihood of that occurring obtain calories more from fats than high fructose carbohydrates, and don't combine sugary carbs with fats.. LDL-C from fats typically lingers in the bloodstream for about 12 hours, thus reducing the possibility of oxidation, LDL-C from carbohydrates can linger in blood for between 5-7 days therefore having a greater chance to become small particle LDL, and thus get oxidised and trapped in coronary endothelium as a plaque.. Fats also increase HDL, which removes cholesterol from blood and coronary arteries, which is what you want..

    Quick update. Got down to 10% body fat and have done 1 week at 250mg of e. My pre cycle testosterone was actually low at 200, but my cholesterol was good. So far haven't noticed any side effects. A bit harder to sleep, but that could also be from sore muscles. Am enjoying eating again, just need to watch my weight gains 1,5 kg in first week. Not sure yet how much is muscle fat or fluid.

  22. The struggle is real... Advice

    Just gotta get in there and do it man. Alternatively if you don’t love the gym anymore there are other things to do which will burn calories and burn off some steam... swimming, buy a Mtn bike, boxing/bjj. or keep at the gym, you don’t have to start back into a 5 or 6 day routine like you finished on before you got injuried. Why not just aim to go twice a week and make them quality sessions. After a month increase it to 3 times a week and then to 4 and so on until you are going the amount you want. That’s the easy way to do it and will have less chance of failure.

    Began my cycle of 25mg per day of GW-501516 (Cardarine) from SARMS NZ on the 8th of February. Will update my progress throughout the cycle. Day 5 and no noticeable changes as of yet. I do notice a slight increase of energy after ingestion and currently I am taking it upon wake up after I’ve drunk 1.5 litres of water.
  25. Hi all Used to be a member here a few moons ago.. long story short. Used to be fat as then approx 6 years ago got fit as, at my best lost 30kgs from my heaviest... Am currently 12kgs heavier than my lightest and really struggling to find motivation to get back in to loving the gym, the burn, the pain, struggling to find the will power to stay committed. Had an injury 6 months ago to which I then just stopped all gym work and started back on the beers... Have tried many times but that only lasts a week before I fall off again ... Starting to feel like shit, grumpy, starting to feel like I've past a point of no return, starting to feel fat where it wasn't before.... Struggling... Any help or ideas please.... 36 yr old male
