    Weight: 275

    Back on the 6x15 program.
    Started wearing breathe right strips and got a humidifier, the sleep apnea has vanished.
    Taking beet root, l-arginine and an extra BP pill and I'm around 150/72, which is higher than I'd like but ok for a couple months.

    I hit the same reps and weights as 2 weeks ago, but felt sluggish. I think I'm still recovering a bit from last week. I was hoping to go up in weight, but I guess even on cycle increasing weight every week is probably unrealistic.

    Got in 20 minutes of steady state cardio after legs and biceps today.

    Well, I got bloodwork back and that explains my fatigue and sluggishness. I didn't think my e2 was high; guys always complain about sensitive nipples and their dicks not working. I've been retaining some water for sure, but none in my face. I remember my friend on cycle and his face was puffed up like the moon. Anyway that's what bloodwork is for.

    Total test: 2,896
    Estradiol: 138

    I have been super tired all the time, but since that is a side effect of igf, I chalked it up to that. I've also had frequent urination similar to symptoms of bph. Decrease in libido, but no performance issues.

    I took 1mg of Adex last night and will start tomorrow .5mg eod and then recheck in two weeks.

    Got in a good push workout today:

    Standing military press 6x15
    Flat bench DB 6x15
    Seated shoulder DB press 6x15

    Superset x 6
    Rear delt machine x 20
    Cable lateral raises x 15

    Superset x 6
    Low to high cable flys x 15
    Tricep push down x 20

    Superset x 6
    Cross body cable chest press x 20
    Reverse grip tri push down x 20

    20 min cardio.

    Got 6,500cal in yesterday after legs.

    Feeling much better since upping the Adex. Libido is way back up and I can sleep without having to get up to pee. Fatigue is better, but I'm still pretty broken down from workouts.

    Deads and back today.

    Did a deload on deadlifts.
    7x5 @ 315 from a 4 inch deficit. Worked explosiveness off the ground.

    I'm losing some water weight, but gaining some definition.

    Standing Overhead & Military presses are a sweet.

    2. Overhead press 6x15

    3. Seated or Tbar row 6x15

    4. Flat Bench 6x15

    High 5 dude keep up the good work and dialing things in.

    This was the first day in 3 weeks I felt I didn't need a mid afternoon nap. The fatigue from elevated e2 was almost debilitating at times.

    Feeling pretty good. Looking better. Was worried I'd drop a bunch of weight as my e2 settles down, but it's holding steady above 275. We'll see.

    Push day, emphasis on chest.

    Flat bench DB 6x15
    Incline DB 6x15
    Machine flys 6x15



    Superset x6
    HS declinex15
    DB pull overs x15

    Supersetx6
    Cross-body cable push x 15
    Tri rope x 20

    Supersetx6
    Shoulder lateral cable flys x 15
    Rev grip tri push downs x 20

    Still eating between 5,500-6,500 cal/day. Recently I've been getting most of my carbs from pancakes, Life cereal, corn bread, etc. Seems to work just fine and it's a nice change from brown rice and oatmeal.

    Haha. I'd take you up on that, but I have to de-fat back down to 242 before too long.
