Description

I am embarrassed, to say the least, about my current condition. I'm at 216.6lbs. I stopped working out a month before California shut down the gyms. And initially my weight dropped from ~240lbs to my current weight. During the pandemic I've used alcohol to an excess and ate as if I was still training. I noticed my sex drive VANISH, a huge increase in body fat around midsection, depression, and anxiety. Doctor checked my testosterone and I was at 123 ng/dL. Anyways I have very little gym equipment right now but enough to make good gains. I'm basically doing a 5x5 strength program. I have about 400lbs in plates and I made a squat rack. I do Squats, Bench press, and bent over rows one day and squats, overhead press, and deadlift. Also since finding out about my low test results I started taking taking testosterone at 200mg/week and I'm taking 25mg of winstrol for the next 30 days and I'm hoping that can give me a little extra kick until the test kicks in.

This is a good step tho bruv, realising before it goes out of control to much. Gyms been closed for me since September now, its a killer looking around June before a reopen. Keep the faith, be the best you possible with the resources you have.

Remember falling and getting back up is not failing. Not doing something about it is. Keep the faith and good luck.

Hey Bud, At least you are being positive and doing something about it - the only way is up now. Quit the bloody useless drinking too as that will destroy your own test & vitamin levels & and any kind of protein synthesis - focused and serious athletes don't drink or smoke bud ++

I heard that! I already feel the effects from being a potato for so long. But I'm going to turn this situation around. I appreciate the support!

You went to all the effort to remove your tattoos but left your melon unblocked in the mirror and all the info of location and time on the blood test?

There was at least 1000 other veterans there that day but I doubt they care even if I was the only one

There's been a rash of this lately... it's just carelessness. Carelessness that will get the individual possibly looked at by LE.

Doubt they're looking for me. If they wanted to find me they can trace my IP address.

Just looking out, unneeded flex on your end. You made yourself identifiable.
