    Advice

    Needs some advise guys and gals! I have been under spongy's plan for several weeks now and have lost quiet a bit of weight. When I get to say 210 (7 pounds away) I woulod like to start firming up and looking good. I'm 46 and know that I'll never be the hulk but I would like to look firm and all. I will be starting weights this week and suggestions on what would help me achieve my goals would be great. I am currently taking 250mg test and will be starting back on gh soon.

    I have been working with exercising and cardio for past couple months but before that it was sporadic at best. It's been 10 years since I have done any weight training but have a personal trainer that has alot of experience.

    So you think the test gh cycle would be all I would need? If so, cool...

    No need to make it more complicated. You'll do great on the test & gh.

    Re: Advice

    This isn't really an anabolic question. It should be a how should I be training question. Just my thoughts here.

    Re: Advice

    Congradations on your weight lose brother. Being a former over 40 fatty I want you to know; you can be the Hulk you want to be. Look at it in stages and years. My transformation took over 4 years. But I assure you it was well worth the effort.

    When I started I said to myself I just want to be normal (what I pictured in my mind I should look like at my age). 1 year later I was there. Then I said I would like to look like a Greek statue 2 more years and I was there. Now I want to see how big I can get and stay under 10% BF.

    I used to say I look good for the over 40 crowd. Now I just say I look good.

    So what my point? Don't sell yourself short. Paint a picture in your mind then follow the steps and you will get there in time.

    Good luck on your journey,
    Grind

    Re: Advice

    I really appreciate that grind! I have my mind set on getting healthier and firmer. If I can do that thru diet, excercise, test, and gh, then I'm set. It helps to see others my age that have been there done that and it's an inspiration to see. Thx bro..

    Re: Advice

    Man it's great to be on a board with so many good guys giving good opinions. I'm with Cobra, The Mast and Var sound like they would be a good addition if you are interested. Run Var the last six weeks at 50mg/ed and run the mast at 200mg/week.

    Much Respect,

    Re: Advice

    I think there is nothing wrong with a TRT dose to help kick start you into weight loss mode. In your 40's your a perfect candidate for TRT and sometimes that's the boost guys need to get the motivation back. I wouldn't start going crazy with other stuff until you reach your weight loss goal however. That's just my 2 cents.. Good luck!
