    Making friends and getting big

    Just introducing myself here. Was really into bodybuilding in my 20's - then along came Wifey with kids school and work - and here I am in late 30's nowhere near where I want to be.

    Been back at it for a little while and feeling better so thought id get back on the boards a little and get to know some of the new blood.

    Glad to be here and looking forward to getting to know you all.

    I'm at 6'0. Anywhere from 190-196 lbs. I bought a squat rack with an Olympic barbell, 350lbs of weight, and a 3 way adjustable bench a few months ago for my shop building. Did the 5x5 workout for 12 weeks and then went it with a buddy on some adjustable dumbbells...just didn't get heavy enough ones for a lot. Found a killer deal on some used bowflex 52.5 lb adjustable ones on Facebook market so we have those now.

    Body fat is between 16-22%. Diet is terrible over the last 6 months as I've been going through a divorce and all that involves.

    But it's slowly coming together.

    Got my head back on straight, priorities lined up, just need to get diet it check and I have a goal!

    I'd like to actually compete before I hit 40 years old. So I figure to lose some body fat for the next few months (newly single and want to look as good as I can for summer), then try to increase size starting in August and bulk through January. Hopefully then cut down and maybe compete somewhere in early summer.

    I don't really care about winning, even though I'm extremely competitive. I am doing this as a personal goal for myself!

    I have been building a stock for the past few months for when I'm ready to use them. I am
    Current on TRT at 125mg/week, plan on adding HGH for 6-12 months starting at 2IU daily x2 weeks, then 3IU/day x 2 weeks, and hopefully topping out at 4IU/day for the rest of the run. 6 days on 1 day off. IGF at 50-80mcg preworkout only on workout days. And stay here for a few months to see what happens.

    In winter next year I'm sure things will change but that is all the plan starting in the next 4 weeks. May end up with some SARMs right now as well - but still learning about those.

    Welcome to the board. Have you found the competition you want to enter yet? Pick the year you are going to step in the stage. It's a great goal. Now make it concrete!
