    I'm assuming you lift weights? 

    how did you manage to decipher what approach to take with this given the vast array of opinions out there. 

    do you own a car? 

    a lot of opinions as to which one to buy. 

    even when you go to get a hair cut there is a broad variety of styles with differing opinions on which looks best. 

    as @Youdontknowme and @stuey99 have said, you educate yourself and draw your own conclusions based on all the information you find.

    Of course these threads written by me reflect my opinion. Think about that sentence for a moment.

    Internet is full of opinions, differing experiences, etc.  Do your research and go with what you feel best. Posting a YouTube video of someone else’s experience will not change the opinion of someone else

    swole troll got a reaction from mbt1990 in Deep hip sockets & squats (figured it out) discussion   
    if you are genuinely unable to hit depth without buttwink then I'd suggest switching to a high bar position and narrow stance to see if that helps

    why you're doing low bar squats a recreational lifter is beyond me anyway. They're good for one thing, maximal strength by shortening the ROM and moment arm in order to hit maximal weight to legal requirements during a powerlifting meet. 

    if the narrower stance high bar (possibly in heels also) still causes this issue then you can build perfectly developed quads with a mixture of Bulgarian split squats, lunges, leg press and leg extensions.

    Read my threads for the answer 
     
    The question you are asking is in these threads so now I know either you didn't read them or didn't pay attention so I won't continue to answer questions regarding the details of them.
    I made these threads to avoid having to answer the same things over and over.

    this is correct 

    many just cant cope with the small loss of coming off combined with the deflated look of natural glycogen retention. 

    plus many blast and cruise and still are not at their genetic potential.

    genetic potential is a lot greyer an area than people think as you can often keep progressing for MUCH longer than most deem at their limit, problem is you may only be gaining 1lb of muscle every 6 months of caloric surplus which is a crap return on investment however that means you are technically able to accrue more size and strength / NOT at your genetic potential.

    Generally, natural or enhanced most will truly cap out their potential due to set backs. There comes a point where you are so strong (relative to your genetics) that you make very slow progress and when you become injured, be it a small niggle or major set back, in the time it takes for you to recover you lose more muscle and strength than you are able to gain back and surpass between that set back and the next 

    as an example your bench may be at 140kg x8 reps, you develop tricep tendinitis causing you to be unable to do any kind of press for 6 weeks and in that time where you are operating so far advanced as a trainee you quickly lose say 15kg off your bench so now you are at 125kg x8 reps and it takes you 8 weeks to get back to 140kg x8 then you pull something in your back doing weighted pull ups which hinders your tightness and causes not only your back training to regress but also you cant get as tight on the bench press and subsequently can only manage 135kg for 8 and so on... 

    basically you are at a very advanced strength level for your genetics and injuries become more common whilst progression becomes more infrequent 

    this can either be age or genetic related but either way this is typically the true start of downward annual trend in size and strength, whether you are natural or enhanced.

    Oh come on...yes it's good that people on here ( in fact several of which are on this thread including yourself ) do seem to have some genuine knowledge and understanding and are willing to share it ( even if it can get a bit "shut up and listen to what I know" ) but anyone who would use an internet forum as their sole point of reference in relation to using gear is foolish in the extreme.
    With the greatest of respect there are plenty of significantly more authoritative resources out there ( llewellyn et al / academic papers ) that maybe a tad drier but present much of what you need to know in good detail.
    EDIT: Just remembered the @swole troll series of articles on first-cycle / steroid info...they are certainly worth a read also.

    1) yes you can run proviron at a lower dosage but 75mg is not considered low 

    I don't understand "or would it be better to leave it for the later stages of my cycle?" 

    or what? can you run low dosages or leave it til the later stages of your cycle? 

    it's a confusing question so I'm unsure how to answer that. 

    2) what damage will it do? and which drug in particular are you referring to when you say 'do more damage' as they're two different drugs with two entirely different actions

    what benefit would taking it on days when you inject testosterone have? you do realize this is an esterfied compound with a slow release and effect, its not a 24hr transient effect, there is a spike in oestrogen 24hrs post shot but prolonged exposure is where issues arise, you could take a birth control pill and nothing happen, its the chronic exposure to elevated oestrogen that causes problems.



    my advice is all in the OP

    I have no idea what you're taking proviron for, it wont lower your e2 it can help to balance the oestrogen androgen ratio but this can require some level of plate spinning I'm not about to try and explain to someone with so many other things on their plate in regard to managing a first cycle so it's easier to just go the more traditional route of e2 management via an AI which again is covered in the OP and the controlling e2 thread I made.

    He went to hell and back for what he achieved 
    Huge sacrifice that really he's yet to actually pay for 
    Which is why I think it's time for him to drop to a normal bodyweight.
    300lb might seem small to him but he needs to drop a good 20-30kg still and get back on the swimming to try and do all he can for his CV health.

    Nonsense 
    It mimics LH that's it. 
    Provided you take a normal amount (like the amount I'm advising) you will be perfectly fine and it would be to your benefit to use hcg the entire cycle.

    what's the question, is sex better on steroids? 

    no they don't answer that as that is a very subjective question and every responds differently to varying doses of hormones in regards to aromatization, conversion to dht, response to AIs, some people just simply don't get much of a libido boost from circumstances that would turn someone else into a fiend with identical exogenously influenced hormonal panels 

    and libido has a huge psychological competent as well, it's a lot more complicated than simply looking at hormonal values

    Such a large property yet so cramped inside (with the exception of the kitchen).

    Watching this and thinking Eddie is still too big, he clearly had a big health scare that made him want to pack in the thousands of calories and copious amounts of pharmaceuticals yet is still far too big for someone reacting to such a scare 

    you could see he wasn't done with his strength goals having barely taken off in regard to career length but packed it in at the height of his success. 

    Even if just for this fight he'd be best served dieting some of that muscle off 
    let alone just living longer and seeing his kids grow up.

    I can tell you what I’m doing with mine;
    We won’t be 24/7 for at least the first two weeks. Whilst we can be, when the rest of the industry isn’t, it could backfire on us or make us look irresponsible.
    We won’t operate a booking system as our size means we won’t be at the cap per 100sqft based on previous usage.
    We will be cleaning every 1-2 hours depending on usage
    We will ask members to wipe down equipment when finished
    We have installed hand sanitiser stations around the club
    Our bathrooms / showers are all individual and private, so will remain in use
    We will only run outdoor classes, depending on demand and weather to begin with
    All equipment is spaced 3m apart and marked in zones with tape
    Entry is contactless already

    you would start from the moment you introduce exogenous hormones into your body (assuming we're talking ones that aromatase)

    the reason being is that most people confuse blood levels with 'kicking in' time, the compound is active in your system the same day you inject it, it just takes a few weeks to build up to a level that you start seeing changes

    here's a table displaying the build up of a medium chain ester like enanthate or cypionate 

    Week 1- 500mg used........After 7 days 250mg left - so active test delivered in that wk 250mg

    Week 2 - 500mg used.......+ 250mg (left over) = 750mg - test active for that wk = 375mg

    Week 3 - 500mg used.......+375mg (left over)= 875mg - test active for that wk=437.5mg

    Week 4 - 500mg used........+437.5mg(left over)=937.5mg - test active for that wk=488.7mg

    Week 5 - 500mg used........+488.7mg(left over)=988.7mg - test active for that wk=494.3mg

    Week 6 - 500mg used........+494.3mg(left over)=994.3mg - test active for that wk=497.1mg

    Week 7 - 500mg used........+497.1mg(left over)=997.1- test active for that week=498.5mg

    from the first week you have over 5 times the amount of testosterone that a natural male produces, you've already taken hormonal homoeostasis into your own hands at this point so as you bring up the test you must keep the oestrogen down within the healthy range

    in fact in the case of fast acting esters or no ester oils and waters like suspension or base and orals i actually advise people to start their AI a few days prior to their first administration to allow it to build up in their system

    Based on the virility of the virus and a large portion of people being asymptomatic (I've heard up to 85% but don't quote me on that) and that it's been over here for at least 4 months at this point although I suspect longer than that considering that chap in France was discharged with pneumonia back in December and later confirmed to have had covid.
    I think it's fairly safe to deduct based on these figures along with the likelihood of presenting symtoms that many have already had it and these stats are a reflection of herd immunity taking place.

    Is the second peak waiting specifically for the gyms to open? 

    it seemed to miss the riots, protests, reduction in 2 metre distancing and day trips to the beach despite everyone saying we're doomed  

    The virus is unquestionably still circulating but there will not be an outbreak anywhere close to the initial peak which the NHS coped with perfectly fine (many nightingales ending up mothballed) and as such I think a second lock down outside of exceptional circumstance and localized is pretty unlikely.

    just be sure to go lighter than you think you need to and follow the rules when the gym's reopen.
