Hey everyone. New to the forum, not to the sport.
I’m having a real issue with lack of energy for my workouts. Its hit or miss. Some days I feel like a powerhouse and others I can narely muster up the strength to get out of bed.
I am on TRT and some of my own stock, my diet is to the gram. I get 6-7 hours of sleep every night ( I’m on doxipen for insomnia). I take pre-workout and vitargo before and during workouts.
Stress is a little high right now. We have an awesome 3 yr old boy who is my world and another on the way. Not to mention a promotion at work that is requiring to get new certs. But I manage the stress with working out. Its my only outlet.
I am hypothyroid (thanks to family genes) but I take levo every day. I’m not sure if its just age, stress or maybe I am pushing myself too hard. I’m trying to get super lean so my carbs are low but thats why I supplement with vitargo and that shit is awesome!
Basically what I am looking for is an energy boost on those days I feel like 10lbs of shit. Maybe something to do with my diet or cycle? My test bloods came back and I’m around 1500 ng/dl. I am gyno prone, so I don’t like to get much higher. I hate AIs so I only take arimidex if I feel nipple soreness, but I do take 2a-3a, P5P, DIIM everyday and it seems to work well.
Here are my stats:
Experience 20 years (mostly for football)
150MG TPP EOD
100MG NPP EOD
100 MG TCYP / week
20mg 2a-3a ED
This is a very comfortable cycle. I feel good ( most of the time). Great lean mass and strength and sex drive is insane. Fat disposition is fair, not great.
Bcaa + glutamine 2x per day
Amino energy 4 scoops pre workout
Ephedrine HCL inhalent 2 puffs pre workout
Vitargo 1 scoop before, 1 during workout
7keto 200mg per day
Ursolic acid 3 x per day
P5P 2 x per day
White Tai kratom pre workout and throughout the day. I have degenerative disks and a fucked up neck from football and I hate pain meds!
5 prepared meals per day (35/45/20) lean meat, broccoli or asparagus and 1/2 yam
Cottage cheese before bed
1 shake per day 45 grams whey isolate usually in early morning ( I get up at 4am day)
Apples 1 EOD
Calories is a round 3000 (may not be enough)
2 in, 1 off, 2 on, 2 off (20 minutes cardio every day)
I may just have to accept the fact I’m getting fucking old. Its just hard. This is my passion and all I have to get away for an hour. Or not enough calories. Could the doxipen be fucking with me. That shit is lights out!
I appreciate any feedback/criticism. I married a smoking hot blonde cheerleader/dancer and 10 years later she drives me crazy! I was super jacked when we met and always have been until my thyroid took a shit. I know I cant get back to that, but i just want to feel that rush before workouts. Sometimes its there 100%, other times I struggle through the entire workout like today.
