    Took first injection last night. Running 300 mg tren a, 300 mg test p, and 600 mg mast e per week splitting doses for injections M/W/F. Starting weight 253 pounds. Goal is more of a recomp leaning more towards a cut while maintaining and adding some additional lean muscle.

    Will lift weights 5-6 times per week. 4 of those days at company gym, which is limited to 50 pound dumbbells. Doubling up workout today do to company holiday party tomorrow. Doing bis/tris this evening.

    12/13/2018 - chest day:

    Incline DB press: 50s x 30, 50s x 25, 50s x 26
    30 degree DB fly's: 50s x 15, 50s x 15, 50s x 22
    Low to high single arm cable crossover(each side): 90 x 12, 100 x 10, 110 x 9
    Flat bench DB press dropset (15 secs between sets): 50s x 33, 40s x 14, 30s x 17, 20s x 26

    Felt good and energized. Took Fury pre-workout before. First time using this. I would say it is average to above average. Seemed to have good focus, no jitters. 1.5 scoops. All sets 1 min rest in between. Pic below after dropset.

    Alright!!! Let's do this.

    For the record I got by for a few decades with 30-60 lb DB's.

    Don't be afraid to cut hard on this cycle. This combo really shines in a deep deep calorie deficit. You will be walking around sweating all day long, getting tons of cardio cause you are gonna be banging your old lady (or dude not judging) 3 times per day and stronger than ever in your life.

    This is a tough cycle to recover from, so don't take any half measures with this sorta recomp and gain some lean mass. Go into this on fire, hungry from the diet but smashing personal records in the gym and getting explosive pumps and shit.

    Thanks for the encouragement! I am definitely going to take this serious and go hardcore. I have been wanting to hit a PR for bench for sure. My last max was about 6 months ago and was 365. I definitely want to hit the 400 club. May be dumb with my age, but still a goal of mine for sure. Already hitting a bad day today since it is our holiday party. Think I am going to do Vodka and diet v. usual beer, so hopefully will save some calories. After today though......I am going to stay away from alcohol for this cycle outside of New Years.

    As for the dumbells, I actually find more of an increase in my bench when I do them for a couple weeks v. just doing chest at regular gym.

    12/13/2018 evening (bi/tri split):

    EZ bar curls, 40 x 16, 50 x 14, 60 x 12
    DB hammer curls w/slow negatives, 60 x 6(each arm), 65 x 5, 50 x 9
    Machine preacher curls, 80 x 14, 110 x 9, 135 x 6
    Vbar tricep extension, 60 x 25, 100 x 12, 130 x 5
    Single arm reverse cable kickback, 30 x 10, 30 x 10, 30 x 10
    tricep dip press, 160 x 20, 205 x 14, 250 x 8
    Burnout: forearm db curl: 20 x 23 each arm

    triceps felt a little weak, but attribute that to doing chest just 5 hours earlier in the day. No preworkout. Did take 1 pill larginine, 1 pill lcitruline, and 1 dhea, prior to workout.

    Did 20 minute HIIT cardio on treadmill this morning.

    Blood test has been received, and look in good shape for this cycle as my liver values are finally back in range (guess that will change with my next test, but good to see in range now). I miscalculated on the test as it did'nt totally clear my body, but they did not seem concerned:

    Alkaline phosphate: 57
    AST: 33
    ALT: 33
    Hematocrit: 48.3
    Vitamin B12: 846
    DHEA: 503
    Estradiol: 30
    Total Test: 1354
    Free Test: 430.8
    Bioavailable Test: 904.7
    SHBG: 13

    Any recs on those numbers? Is there anything else off the report that I should post or be concerned with? Thanks, again!

    You are really lucky with that low shbg. Mine is 48 and means that my free test is perpetually low. It's not even very impressive when my TT is over 900.
