After five days straight of working out, rested this weekend, only doing 40min of medium intensity cardio on Sunday evening. Just some random specifics:
Bench press up 20lb to max of 8 reps at 260 - can hit it easily.
Dumbell Fly press up to max of 6 reps using 80lb dumbells in each hand - that’s up 20lb, also.
Squats up to max of 6 reps at 290 - up 30lb. Gotta go slow on this one bc of bad knee - but still feel like even more is possible.
If I do leg isolation machines (for quads or hamstrings) I almost stack out. Amazing. Also, if I do machines for abs I stack out.
Went to the beach all weekend and am having trouble dealing with everyone’s responses to my physique. I’ve always been a very lean guy - so even the 12 new pounds I have on me is VERY noticeable. I had at least a half dozen people ask me if I was “juicing” - and I had to say “no” each time. Figuring out a way to deal with all that is becoming a priority. Inside, I feel better and stronger - very “manly” (sorry if that sounds cheesy). LIke this is how my body is SUPPOSED to look. I work very hard, and feel like I deserve this kind of reward. But - a big but - you can’t explain this to friends who immediately associate AAS with all the stereotypes you see in the media. It’s a work in progress, I guess, and so am I.
Still some confusion over my test/estrogen levels. I’ve been using Adex .25EOD for the past two weeks and all has seemed fine. But this weekend couldn’t get a bone to save my life.
So something is off. I think that the large amount of test that is building in my system is finally converting. Viagra saved the day, but I need to figure out where I’m off. Plus - I’m pretty emotional. Actually, I’m VERY emotional. So those two things together point toward excess estrogen, right? Maybe I should up the adex to .25 every day? Doing some research on that right now - but I’m confused. I’m very relieved to have viagra, but don’t necessarily want to pop it every time I want to get laid - which is, like, what I want to do ALL the time lately.
Pinned last night. Loved it. Weird that I love it - kinda want to pin every day! Chest and abs today - very ready to tear it up. Very happy I still have a solid 8 weeks left before PCT.
