I’d love to say that it’s my hard work, or my excellent programming but honestly… :joy:


Weight: 226


Bicep (peak): L - 17 7/8 R - 18 1/8
Quad: L - 24 1/2 R - 26
Waist (belly button): 37
Calves: L - 16 7/8 R - 17 1/8
Forearm: L - 13 R - 13 3/8
Chest (under arm): 48 1/4
Shoulder: 52 1/8

Got a wild hair and did measurements bored at home today. They’re repeatable, and data is always good. Fairly surprised at the waist measurement as I feel decent, pant sizes haven’t changed, and I’ve dropped a belt hole (gotten smaller). Ah well, that’s why we measure, weight, and track things, because feelings don’t do much haha

Have the ability to get some extra test cyp from a reliable source and am thinking I may run 300mg/week since I’m now committed to TRT, jury is still out but I’ll have weights and measurements to look back at either way.

Everything felt heavy AF, but most likely due to a shit sleep cycle the last few days, so not terribly surprised.

Been doing light workouts, minimal sleep between work call outs and sick kids, so just been going, chasing a pump, and being done. Not sure what’s going on with weight, but I feel ok.

Got my test checked Tuesday, 4 days post injection of ~150mg and it came back at 1431 (range 197-670) :joy: doesn’t seem right, but I’ll take it. Seems like an excellent response to a very mild dose.

Edit: this just makes me think that 300mg a week of test cyp is gonna turn me into Arnold… obviously :joy:

Absolutely mailed that leg day in. First time in a long time that I had to talk myself into going to the gym, ha. Whatever, it’ll pass, it always does. Got a little sweat going, call it a win.

DB Flat Bench

Day 1 of “45 Days to Fill The Sleeves”

Coach Feld’s fundraiser, I think he’s the S & C guy at Miami now…? Used to be Oregon, anyway, it’s 100 reps for biceps and 100 reps for triceps every day for 45 days, varying rep schemes and weight, full auto regulation. Just gonna tack it onto my regular workouts and use it on rest days. Something fun, ha

Trying to be smart and do a shit load of pump work, light volume to help joints and tendons keep up with strength, real tough not pushing for rep and weight maxes every lift :joy:
