    There is one change that I forgot to mention.

    Saw a new doctor outside of the VA yesterday. Got prescribed telmisartan instead of the beta blocker metoprolol that I've been taking. Too my first dose this morning, 40mg. That stuff put my dick in the dirt. He said he thought it would be too much for me but wanted to go by the standard starting dose, plus it's expensive so he told me if I needed to drop down to just take a half tab. Cheaper that way. Anyhow he was right. Got orthostatic hypotension a couple times standing up.

    If anyone doesn't know, the reason I wanted telmisartan is because not only is it an effective ARB, it's also a partial PPAR agonist that works selectively on the PPAR-y receptor. The PPAR-y receptor is responsible for insulin sensitivity, adipose cell differentiation inhibition (suppresses new fat cell maturation), and glucose & lipid metabolism. This is one of the ways GW501516 works, along with the other PPAR receptors. Stuff sounds good on paper, and the PPAR-y action is well proven. So we'll see how it goes.

    Alright guys, hope all is going well. Made some changes to my workout this week to only have a single leg day to give my knee more recovery time between poundings. Leg days are today, and it's a Mountaindog style leg workout with some solid progressive overload and increased volume/metabolic work. Smoked my friggin ass. I'm not used to that much volume. Good shit!

    110 for 10

    125 for 9

    125 for 9


    BB squat

    Work up to 2 sets of very hard 8

    225 for 8

    235 for 8


    Hack squat

    125 for 15

    140 for 12


    DB SLDL

    3 sets of 8, up to 3/4 lockout for constant tension

    55 for 8

    55 for 8

    Didn't want to go too heavy here to avoid injuring lower back


    Calf press

    3 sets of 10, 10 second loaded stretch end of each set

    12 plates for 10

    12 plates for 10

    Thanks man! Down to 187.9 today, so pretty sizable drop this week. Got a little bigger at the same time which is odd. I'll get them uploaded sometime today

    What was your before and after blood pressure? I am just curious because telmisartan is a staple for me.

    I was around 145/78ish before, and on 40mg telmisartan daily I'm now sitting around 126/68. Stuff is working great for me

    Interesting. Would a person not want to take GW501516 while they are on telmisartan? Im trying out Gorillas GW right now and am thinking about starting telmisartan that I just got from reliable. My BP is always around 140 over 80. Heart rate is low 60's.

    I don't see why not. It will increase the PPAR-y agonist effect of each other, but telmisartan is selective to only the PPAR-y receptor whereas the GW is a non-selective and activates all of the PPAR receptors. It anything it'll make it work better. May want to start at a lower dose and see how it goes. Maybe 20mg telmisartan daily, give it a couple weeks to work completely before adjusting dose.
