  1. Today
  2. Running low dose test only all year round

    If that’s your mindset it ain’t gonna happen for you bro. In regards to health. Who knows.... all I know is you’ll be healthier off the gear (considering natty levels are within the normal range). I wouldn’t recommend it but that’s just me.
  3. Hey, my brother came over today and something he said to me was that lately he was finding himself anxious around others and even when driving into town he is finding himself worried about people looking at him while driving and stuff. I said that I can relate to that as I find I get like that when i haven't had a workout in a couple days or more. I do find that it happens to me but he describes it as quite extreme in his case. We both workout a few days each week. Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? Thanks for reading.
  4. Yeah but i kinda want to be a small step up from that but not worried about being big so was just wondering what it would do in regards to health.
  5. Anyone know about Army/NZDF training?

    When i got in 17 was a 2.4k not beep
  6. Upper/Lower strength training Split

    It’ll work great if you know how to lift properly and progressively get stronger on those movements every week
  7. Hey guys, been talking to a trainer online, who reckons I should do this upper lower strength training routine. To me it looks like there’s not enough of each muscle group to be beneficial. The way I’m ment to do it is. Monday- Upper Tuesday-Lower Weds-Off Thursday-Upper (again) Thursday-Lower 2 and on weekend I can do optional day. What’s your thoughts on this. Upper 5x5 bench 3x8 close grip bench 3x8 overhead press 3x10 lat pulldowns 3x10 db rows 3x10 pullups (assisted, body weight, or weighted as needed) 3x10 incline curls Lower 1 5x5 squat 3x8 stiff leg dead 3x10 front squat 3x10 leg curls 3x10 hip thrusts 3x10 seated calf raises Lower 2 5x5 dead 3x8 front squat 3x10 stiff leg dead 3x10 leg extensions 3x10 hip thrusts 3x10 standing calf raises Optional accessory day 1 3x10 lat raises 3x10 incline curls 3x10 face pulls 3x10 standing calf raises 3x10 seated calf raises Optional day 2 3x10 lateral raises 3x10 cable tri pushdowns (wide grip) 3x10 cable tri pushdowns (close grip) 3x10 incline curls 3x10 hammer curls 3x10 face pulls 3x10 incline shrugs

  10. Probably been asked a million times before...so apologies in advance if it has. As the title suggests, does anyone use an online meal delivery service? I used to use muscle meals direct in Australia, found it fantastic. Who do you use? How much do you pay? Advice appreciated.
  11. Last week
  12. Running low dose test only all year round

    If you want to be lean and have good muscles year round but not be big just focus on nutrition and training you don’t need gear for that
  13. Idle ramblings and observations.

  14. I want to have a nice physique and be lean with nice muscles but not aiming to be bodybuilder big. Would running a low dosage cycle all year round to build and maintain gains be okay in regards to health. I think TRT is 100mg p/w, so I was thinking of starting at 150mg and moving up 50mg until 250mg/300mg p/w and stay on it all year round. Thoughts? Thanks.

    Images haven't posted in order unfortunately, but you get the idea.
  16. Idle ramblings and observations.

    Haven't posted much but have been plugging away, right up until a knock at work forced a 2 week break😂. It was time for a rest anyway. Been playing around with a few things, here's my current program in pictures. Just finished the first week of it, a lot of sussing out techniques and rhythm next week will be the same, then in to it.

  23. Anyone know about Army/NZDF training?

    What were people's approach to the 2.4km run in terms of training ? I looked at the recommended plans online and for the results they indicate getting the plans looked simple. I think the advanced Male had you doing a 10min 2.4km in approx 5-6 weeks ?
