    Still taking some time from being sick. Its my little ones 1st B'day party tomorrow so gonna take the weekend and start fresh again on Monday. Have gotten a couple comments as a few people thought I was to skinny previously, lol and look better now that I've put some weight back on. I did a natty cut from 205 down to 156lbs, so I was pretty scrawny for a bit. I ready to get back at it but wanna make sure 100% before plowing back in.

    How’s the NPP doing for ya for the joints?
    I have a job that requires a lot of lifting and I’m younger than you but I played ball and have bad knees too. My lower back is pretty bad as well.

    I’m currently on Test E from SP. And I’m considering running a log for those of you who need a lab rat from a cutting perspective.

    This is my first time juicing as well. I’ve been natty lifting for over 10 years.

    Yep the NPP has helped greatly with my joint issues but that's basically based off of the feelz report, which I'm not sure how else you would test that benefit. Just keep it to a low dose. I started out 200mg per week. 50mg M/W/F/S repeat. I did increase to 300mg after about 3 weeks or so as no sides other some back acne. Good luck!

    Back at today, and it felt good to get the pump going again after a week off. Increased most of my lifts too. I have been training to failure, meaning I can barely finish the last rep and not perform another. On Deadlift today fell 2 reps short on the last set as I was failing and also felt like my form was going to go to shit if I tried for one or two more reps. Weight this morning was 183lbs down 2lbs from last week, which isn't bad considering I vomited any and all liquid or substance I had in my body for 24 hours on Tuesday and could barely eat on Wednesday lol.


    Legs:

    Squat ***
    200x6x3 (+5lbs)
    Deadlift ***
    280x6x3 last set 280x4 (+5lbs)
    Leg extention ***

    When training on cycle that's what I do to and I think it is the best to push, push and PUSH. One more rep, then one more rep after that. :)

    How many more weeks do you have left?
    If you can get to 190 lbs before the cycle ends that would be AWESOME!
    You will lose 5-8 lbs from glycogen stores after the cycle is over, remember how you gained 5-8lbs in the start? That was all carbs into your muscles and it will leave later too.

    How much are you increasing the weights? Your strength should be increasing by the week and you should be smashing PRs.

    I've got 4 weeks left. I set a 12 week bench mark when I started, although I was thinking of maybe pushing it to 16. The ultimate goal was to try and get to 200lbs but it's not happening this time with in the next 4 weeks. Should be able to get to 190lbs though if all goes well. Each week I've increased lift its any between 5lbs to 15lbs progressively depending on the lift. I'd say it's been consistently 10-20% each week.

    Awesome man! If you can get to 190 I would say your cycle was extremely successful!

    Keep in mind you can only gain so much in a set period of time, myostatin levels will increase and that will halt your gains. If you notice anything dramatic to that effect just call it quits.

    So I did do some slow steady state Cardio on Tuesday. 2.25mile incline walk at 8 degree incline at 3mph (no I did not hold on to the treadmill :D). Today did chest and increased some lifts again. Left out abs this time as I decided to now do them on my off days of Tuesdays and Thursday along with some Cardio. Weight this morning is back up to 185lbs. Also lowered the carbs and up'd the fat a little. 300g carbs, 250g protein, 130g fats at around 3250 calories.

    Today's arm session. Continuing to train failure. Almost always struggling for the last rep and then pushing for one more. So each set I've hit the the last rep in the set.

Weight this morning 186.8lbs.

    Mondays leg day. Didn't increase anything this session, but did push for the extra rep at the end of each set. Weight was at 186lbs and still no problem eating the calories. Steady at around 3400-3800 daily. Carbs are lower now at around 350-400g, protein still around 225-250g, and fats I've up'd a little to 120-140g.

    Start of week #10 of my first cycle today. I know it's Wednesday but when I started my cycle I was getting over being sick and Wednesday was the first day I felt good enough to start. Today was chest and I focused on holding each rep for a second. Felt like I got some good pump at the end of each set. Weight this morning 188.8lbs. I don't think I'll have a problem reaching at least 190lbs by the end of this cycle.

    I love dumbbell shrugs. Even just holding the dumbbells can be killer if you relax your arms and let the weight rest on your traps.

    Sometimes after my set I will hold on to those angry suckers until my traps are about to tear. Well, feels like they are about to tear. It is weakness leaving my body :p
