Hi All, hope everyone is well?
I have one or two threads over in the T Replacement forum...summary of that is, after determining that I am a combination of primary and secondary hypo, I added TRT to my HRT about 2 or 3 months ago. Now that I am dialing the TRT and E2 management in (still have to nail into place, but I am about there), I am in a place where I feel I can get back in to the gym...have not been there in about 11 years, that is when my hormone problems started. But this is not a woe is me post
I am hoping to use this thread to document progress ito how I perceive myself in the mirror and in the gym.
42 y/o, 120kg's, 5'11 probably around 25 - 28 % bf (mostly in the trunk). current strength levels very weak due to years of being sedentary and all the other excuses. But I could probably push out 1RM of around 60Kg on the bench, 50Kg on press 100Kg on the dead 50 on the row and 50 on the clean.
I had around 3 years training before I let it go, so you could say that I am starting as a Noob, from scratch. Although, in setting up the gym yesterday and testing things out, muscle memory seems to be okay, will see when the weights are at a decent level.
I am hoping to use 5/3/1 (thanks Jim), so I am not sure if this post is in the correct forum, but my goals are bigger stronger leaner so, hey. Goals at the moment are just to get stronger and feel like a man again. Not to bothered about BF, although that will probably improve just due to the fact that I am moving and lifting again.
This afternoon will be the 1st training session, I am actually looking forward to it, but nervous as well. Here's to hoping I don't hurt myself
Anyway, I hope to maintain this thread with updates on progress made. Follow along if you like.
