I am in here hard and fast. Did you get your blood work situated, Mighty? I am a healthy young buck again and dominating on my squat now. haha

Thanks everyone!

Destrength: I was on clomid for close to half a year but pretty sure my levels didn’t hold. Will go to the doctor soon and probably just get on testosterone for the rest of my life! I’m finally making some progress again, particularly on the deadlift.

I outweigh you by almost fifty pounds, and you still out deadlift me. Are you sure you’re not a crane?

Oh I’m not that strong bud! Plenty who can do more. What’s with your dead? Thought you were up there with me?

I deadlift 465. At least I squat 415 without wraps. haha


#15

You can pull a little more than me then! Your squat is way more than mine!


#16

Ok this is what happened to me at the end of Jurassic world and I want to know if it was the same for you.

The last ten minutes were like the best 10 minutes of my entire life but I didn’t realize that until it was finished and then I felt sad that I wasn’t savouring the moment…

Oh, I thought it said 445X9 instead of 345X9. I was thinking “445X9? I would die doing 405X8”. That explains things. haha

Lol! Yea, the t-rex part was pretty awesome! I did a good job savoring the moment though ;). Saw it in 3d and on their extreme digital projector!


#19

Oh, so this is where you are.

Welcome back little buddy. T-Nation missed you.

I’m in…I really enjoyed following your training log last time as we’re quite similar in height and weight, I’ve started a new log myself as it helps me stay on track at least until I get the training habit back anyway :slight_smile:
