Happy Friday.

Cardio:
  • 30 minutes incline treadmill at 140BPM

Legs:
  • Leg press 3 x 6
  • Hack squat 10, 8, 6
  • Sissy squat 3 x 20
  • Single leg extension 2 x 10
  • GHR 3 x 10
  • Standing calf raise 3 x 15

Sissy squats fried my quads after the other two exercises so reduced extensions by one set and dropped a little weight.

Got a few little niggling pins from the climbing as I probably worked muscles I don’t usually work through training/moved in different ways. Should be fine after a day or two.

Looking forward to a chilled weekend, been tired this week. Symptoms still visible but have improved from when I was at my worst.
Notice there's no squats in there, how come?

Not managed to do them for a couple of weeks now. Racks were all taken for a couple of sessions and was cautious about my knee today as it didn’t feel 100% after climbing. Hoping to get some in next session. Feel like I’m getting good work from hacks and leg presses ATM but would like some squats in there too.

I can't go heavy with squats but I like doing them with a moderate weight. It seems to result in niggles and pains no matter how good my form is. I've been sticking to the hack slide, been loading each side with 75kg which I will increase slowly.

Met up with my cousin last night and ended up having a few drinks and staying up late. Probably the first time I’ve had a proper drink in 2022. Not a big fan but it was a decent night. Ate a kebab and a load of junk food so not ideal for training but it doesn’t happen often.

Cardio:
  • 30 minutes bike ride (lovely weather)
  • 30 minutes incline treadmill at 145BPM

Abs:
  • Dragon flag 3 x 8
  • Crunch 3 x 15
  • Hanging leg raise 3 x 12

Push:
  • Flat barbell bench press 3 x 6 (135KG, 140KG, 142.5KG)
  • Standing barbell press 3 x 6 (80KG)
  • Cable fly 3 x 10
  • Overhead cable extension 3 x 10
  • Lateral DB raise 3 x 10 (36lbs)

A lad in the gym asked how I stay so lean so I told him I use a small surplus, use some Test, do a lot of cardio etc. After I finished my session, I was sitting outside drinking a shake and heard the resident 50-odd year old steroid bro-scientist telling the guy I ‘must be on Anavar or Winstrol to stay so lean’. This is after he told me that Trenbolone cancels out Testosterone because it’s five times stronger earlier on. rolls eyes I forgot it was impossible to stay in shape without orals.

My Mrs is catching up with her mates later, so I’m going to spend some time with the family. My mate has asked me to go climbing again tomorrow, I think I’m gonna go as I had fun last time. I’ve watched a few tutorials on YouTube about techniques and tips, so hopefully I can put some to use. I’ll post a video if I manage anything remotely impressive.

My next cycle is going to be:
  • Test E
  • Primo E
  • Anavar
  • Turinabol
All at low doses. I haven’t decided yet but I imagine something along the lines of 250-300/200-250/25/25, but I’ll have a proper think and let you know. I’m confident I’ll be able to look like granite on that stack.

What’s going on here fellas? I got a DM from a random female account on Instagram and assumed it was a bot/spam account so she sends this to ‘prove she’s real’ without any prompting whatsoever. What’s she trying to achieve? I assume she’s harvesting dick pictures from muscular men. Random AF.

No idea mate but it's easy to get sextorted that way. They get you to send pics and then threaten to post them unless you pay them.

It's happened to a couple of people I know. One ended up parting with a couple grand until he realised the scammer wasn't going to stop asking for money.

I’d never send nudes TBH, even to my Mrs. Heard too many stories like that.

Aye indeed mate I'm exactly the same. I've never sent nudes nor do I keep pics of myself that could be used against me, just loads of progress pics where I'm posing. They're welcome to them.

One of those guys I was talking about had his phone hacked and they lifted pics directly off of it. He didn't send them to anyone. I have no idea how they did it, and it's ****ing scary that he doesn't know how they did it either. He's very security conscious. Always assume the images your phone could be stolen and stay vigilant.

Madness. The people doing the blackmailing could get in serious trouble. I was reading AskUK Reddit recently and there was a guy who was facing a potential prison sentence because he’d snared would-be sex offenders using fake accounts online and extorted them.

The people doing it are scammers based overseas, India, Phillipines, countries like that. There's a dedicated subreddit called /sextortion where there are some horror stories.

The type of hack used on my mate didn't require him to install or download anything on his phone so I reckon it was a more sophisticated targeted attack. The type where the hacker needs to be physically close to the victim. I think his building was targeted. The hack is then picked up by a remote team who try and blackmail them for money.

Scary stuff going on really. Best way to stay safe is assume that nothing on your phone is private.

They are on Twitter as well. Follow you and then send Direct Messages to get in touch with them, sometimes they are offering the pictures of themselves. I have never replied to any of them. They can follow me, I don't care.

15th May

Good f*cking morning, goddamnit.

I slept in 'til 11:30AM today, I'm feeling recharged.

I went down a John Meadows rabbit hole during my cardio so decided to do a Meadows inspired back and biceps workout which actually turned out to be awesome. It's been a few years since I've used one of his programs but I'm considering starting one rather than making something myself as I'll probably pick up some fresh new ideas from it and a different perspective. I tend to stick with the same exercises most of the time so it'll be a nice way of mixing things up for me.

Pre training ate a chicken burrito and drank a 400mg caffeine shot.

Cardio:
  • 30 minutes bike ride
  • 30 minutes incline treadmill at 140BPM
Pull:
  • Meadows rows 3 x 8, 1 x 6
  • Single arm pull down 3 x 6
  • Nautilus pull-over 10, 8, 6
  • Spider curl 10, 8, 6
  • Single cable curl 3 x 6
  • Reverse Pec-deck 1 x 20
Post-training I'm about to blend up a shake with some Skyr, whey and frozen fruit.

Was supposed to be doing some more climbing later but my mate said he's been throwing up all day. Not sure if he's being serious or if he just can't be bothered but if I miss it today, I'll probably go on Tuesday instead.


Bits for my next blast are due to be posted on Monday, as mentioned yesterday, I'm going for Test E, Primo E, Anavar and Turinabol. Doses to be decided. Opted for Southern Ghost brand. Looking forward to it, hoping to look super dry/hard while also feeling half decent. I'll keep you updated.

Was not feeling it today! Very tired. Was 90% sure I was going to give it a miss but decided to get it over and done with last minute and glad I did.

Chasing up my appointment with the specialist but all they can tell me is I’m in the queue and they’ll tell me when there’s an appointment free. Frustrating but what can you do?

Cardio:
  • 30 minutes Incline treadmill at 145BPM

Legs:
  • Squats 3 x 6 (180KG), 1 x drop set (3 plates, 2 plates, 1 plate)
  • Plate loaded hack squat 3 x 6 (pause reps)
  • Leg extension 3 x 10, 1 x drop set
  • RRL 3 x 6 superset single leg curl 3 x 10
  • Seated calf raise 3 x 15, 1 x drop set

Giving myself a kick up the arse today as I’ve been slacking with things, half-assing hydration, diet etc. Usually it’d be acceptable but I need to keep tabs on things like this more than others due to health issues.

Going to go to Tesco tonight and stock up on some bits. Could do with some whey too but the price seems to be sky high everywhere now.

Took a new chap on for the coaching today (found me via this thread apparently, hi if you’re reading) so going to spend some time tonight putting something together and hopefully help him ascend.

Got these cool striations becoming visible on my calves now.



Going to train here next time I do legs for a chance as they have glute bridge machine, pendulum squat and a nice hack squat.

Strange as it sounds I have actually had some of my best workouts on the days when I just didn't feel like going to the gym but did anyway.
Yup it was a good one in the end. I think the tiredness was more mental. Didn’t want to miss today as I’m supposed to be climbing tomorrow and didn’t want to skip two days in a row. Hopefully my mate is sound to go tomorrow as he was sick over the weekend.

What brand and flavour is it mate? Is it decent?
Strawberry according to Clubber, but he says it is great. There is another - pop corn flavour which Clubber says it great too, but a bit of sugar in it. One other guy reckons he bought it from Home Bargains website, so may be have a look mate, Whey can give me spots so not as clued up. The Reflex code works on all their Protein.

Edited - Brand from Home Bargains is X Tone according to Clubber. Clubber has bought supplements for a long time and he rates this Whey
