  1. Been a while since I've commented here, time to participate more again now that COVID might just be starting to become a thing of the past. As you might guess from my username, I'm no spring chicken. Done the natural bodybuilding thing back in the day, and now doing TRT (prescribed) with an occasional moderate boost here and there. Well, that was the plan until all this gym closure BS. Just TRT for a year now. Anyway, I always trained heavy through the years. You might call it a 'powerbuilding' style. So I can say I have a very good 'base'. I had signed up for my first powerlifting
  2. Others will correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that will work. Even a low dose will shut you down quickly. You'd need HCG to keep you going beyond a very short time.
  3. @CLVTCH the finger prick hemo test is not very good accuracy-wise. I've seen widely different values compared to lab tests. Asked my doc about it and he said it's not reliable compared to lab. I'm gonna go back on my grapefruit seed extract and try the IP6 and Circumin and see what happens. If it doesn't work, will try to find phlebotomy, or maybe just a couple bar fights...been a while
  4. Yeah I hear ya. It's frustrating. My doc is anal about this and takes me off until it comes down. I don't seem to have it as bad as you, when I donate it usually falls below range. Except this time I couldn't get in to LifeLabs quickly enough after donating. They closed the closest location b/c of Covid, and other locations were totally swamped and I got turned away twice. Finally went to Dynacare and got in, but almost a week had passed and I was over again, and was told to stop. Fuuuuuck! I've never seen 200, that sounds high, but FWIW, if you're going by pre-donation
  5. Thanks, yes very helpful. I have a pretty good theoretical understanding of the powerlifting bench, but am thinking I'd like advice from a coach as well. Thanks for the sticking point tip too. I almost always get it out of the hole but sometimes can't lock it out. Time to get an order in. Strength very close to pre-Covid now. And thanks @Ryujiin for reminding me of GH. Should probably do a run or two for health benefits alone.
  6. Covid results: Went in to lock down at 255 and reasonably lean (maybe 12-14%). Emerged at 230 and fat. Lost at least 30lbs of muscle while gyms were closed! Good news is it still comes back fast. 240 this AM and leaning out (my belt doesn't lie). Just on 100mg TRT, but gonna do a little blast when results level off. Thinking a little NPP on top of maybe 300 Test and a little Anavar.
  7. FWIW, I thought he was trolling for sure when he said he doesn't like to 'strain' his shoulders. Then he talks about a 'lifting partner ' that trains once per week. Hmm..... But the biggest evidence is his total lack of progress with apparently large doses of AAS. Something isn't right. Maybe the simplest explanation is total lack of training. Maybe he goes to the gym and plays with the pink dumbbells for five minutes and thinks he worked out. We'll never know because he never seems to follow any good advice.
  8. Video in French, but 100% easy to understand with zero French.
  9. Very much appreciated gentlemen. Equipoise is out. Will try the others soon - probably not all at the same time though. One nice thing about getting older when you're a saver (or just a cheap SOB maybe) money is less and less of a problem so the cost of something like Primo is no biggie. I've heard good things about Deca and joints too. Thoughts?
  10. FWIW, my gym just emailed with instructions/rules. Facemasks only required upon entry and exit, but not during workout. Interesting.
  11. FWIW, I'd love to bid to try a few new things, and it still looks like excellent value, but Mig is a no-go for me.
  12. Everybody knows that it's much more important to get your nails done than go to a gym.
  13. In all seriousness, although I don't know a helluva lot about this, I do know that this can be dangerous and there are some idiosyncratic reactions even at low doses. So for the love of everything holy, start low...
