  1. if your training, nutrition and recovery is on point after a 6 year break you're about to grow like a weed.
  2. Dieting while on gw cardarine and sr9009

    What Realtalk said.
  3. First cycle advice

  4. First cycle advice

    For once someone with a smart first cycle lol. Only thing I’d recommend is just stop after 10 weeks rather than tapering but not a biggie. I’m also gonna go and say that you’re probably not ready for a cycle given your training history and the fact that you’re blaming a slim body type for your lack of muscle gain lol but you’re probably gonna do it anyway so here goes. calorie wise just eat in A way in which allows your body to gain at the pace you want it to. Keep track of what you’re doing and as weight gain stops add in 100g carbs etc... don’t over think the numbers just be consistent. protect gains by continuing to eat perfect and train hard, with recovery as a priority. Anyone who says you can’t keep gains once coming off is drug reliant and lazy. Sure you might lose a couple kg but you should be able to keep the majority ESPECIALLY after only running 250mg. PCT... well I’d suggest talking to a doc. To be honest a lot of people don’t bother with PCT after a cycle such as the one you’ve listen but if you want to be safe 2 weeks of clomid and 4 weeks of a natural T booster should have you covered...
  5. Keto for cutting, high carb for bulking?

    Keto works great for fast fat loss. high carb is great for bulking. i usually start a cut by reducing carbs slowly and it may or may not result in Keto depending on my tame frame vs how lean I wanna get.
  6. Aspirin while on aas

    How tall are you?
  7. Critique my body

    Looking good man
  8. You need to understand each muscle you are trying to hit. Don’t just pick say 4 random exercises for your back or chest and do them cause you think they’re good. for example - when I am training my chest I’ll start with movements focussing on the top part of my chest and work down. Same goes for back, I might start with my Lats and slowly work into my middle traps etc. if you want a program email me jordan@jordanearlfitness.com but otherwise use this info to improve on what you’re alrwady doing.
  9. Few things I’d change. less sets per movement, more angles. So more exercises per large muscle group. forget percentages... couple sets at 100% within your rep range will give you better results IF your intensity is right. just train hard.
  10. Clen - AKL?

    If you’re not tracking your food you have no business even considering introducing a fat burning drug. Track your food. Be consistent. Do cardio. Unless you’re trying to get shredded from head to toe clen shouldn’t cross the mind, just do all the basics and be patient
  11. Critique my Physique

    you need more muscle. i wouldn't focus on anything in particular just hit everything hard. good base though man

  15. Best personal trainer Wellington?

  16. Dieting for strength

    All of the time I see guys and girls posting about dropping body weight and seeing their strength decrease rapidly. The truth is, this simply should not happen. the goal for ANY resistance training athlete when dropping body weight should be to maintain as much lean body mass as possible, or even better, add some muscle as they diet down. Unless ofcourse the athlete is 3% BF and they are trying to make weight. when I hear of guys dropping a lot of weight and seeing an enormous decrease in strength I automatically know that their nutrition is off. Often training too, but for a PLer who IS REGIMENTED they train a certain way and hit certain numbers when required etc, as opposed to a bodybuilder who just trains balls to the wall every day. what I am saying is, people should get out of the mentality that more weight equates to more strength when in reality more muscle is what is going to do it (if technique is good and remains the same). Muscle moves more load than fat ever will. In fact having a tonne of excess fat will indirectly reduce your results because it will make you lethargic and that will probably effect your training. i am dieting over 15 powerlifters at the moment. Basically all bar a few are life time naturals. Some hit ridiculous numbers raw, they are all bar a few coming down in bodyweight and are all still hitting PBs pretty much every week. if you are dieting and getting weaker you are losing muscle. Either your DIET (most likely), your training or your MENTAL ATTITUDE needs to improve. Get your numbers right and work hard to keep the mass on.
  17. Low testosterone

    No.. don’t do that. If you are mentally unstable then steroids is going to make that a whole lot worse. If mental illness is what you think is causing the issues, why not talk to your doctor about ways to manage whatever is going on?? Stress etc can be a huge factor and if whatever is bothering you can be made to bother you less, it may be problem solved. I’m not saying this is the black and white answer, but it could be. i would definitely look into this before looking into testosterone boosting medicine, especially due to your age.
  18. 2017 log

    haven't deadlifted in forever and casually picks up 270 and it feels....good. yea screw you lol
  19. Plank Exercise

    not better, not worse. They can both serve a purpose. Planks IMO are better for general core strength and stability, crunches IMO are better for building the abdominals for aesthetic purposes. My opinion - do both :) as a superset.. Until your abs are on fire.. haha.
  20. 15 year old body builder

    What he said.
  21. How effective are body weight programs?

    That program is suitable for very obese or elderly people who need to increase their mobility. If you fall under neither of those categories then i do not think its the best option. Body Weight training can be beneficial though, i would focus more on things like pull ups, dips, etc... hard stuff :)
  22. .

    Looking solid man
  23. Help required - Police PAT

    In truth the fitness should be able to be built up in 6 weeks maximum. It’s not a marathon. I would say do the run 5x pw. Get it done. Once a week probably isn’t enough esp for someone who is struggling. 1.5c crew lol
