    So this week was pretty bad. Starting with last Thursday we had a plumbing issue that was outside of my knowledge base causing us to need a plumber which ended in a huge bill. Also found out our water pressure was double the amount recommended so we need to install a pressure regulator soon as well as finding out the whole house needs to be repiped asap. So stressful, but then over the weekend my check engine light came on and my engine began clicking. So I bring it into the dealership to find out the next day there is burnt oil in my spark plugs and oil in the pistons. Long story short I now have to get a brand new engine for my truck I purchased used less than 3 years ago. Stress level to the max. I missed a couple days of cardio and lifting, the loss of motivation due to stress was high. Hower I did get back into my groove yesterday and today. I somehow still loss weight even with the break and eating some off plan comfort food. I'm hoping the rest of the prep can be relatively stress free and we got all the bad luck for 2019 out of the way.

    Best to stay with workout when stressed . Especially the cardio . Nothing we can do about all the things that are thrown at us- only thing we can control is how we react -Luck-OD

    Things have been going more smoothly this week. In fact I probably kicked the intensity on cardio up a notch because of missing 2 days. Currently I think this is the leanest I've been at 15 weeks out, ever! Recently I've been having trouble posting pics thru the tapatalk app. Is anyone else getting this? If so is there a fix?

    Currently running 700 mg test e weekly and 400 mg EQ weekly. Most of my lifts are consistently progressing and haven't had to change out a lot of exercises. I'm glad to be back in my groove. Cardio is up to 30 mins fasted morning cardio every day and 30 mins cardio after lifting 5 days a week. I'll try to include some check in pics again.

    Bad news to report, my string of bad luck continued. I tore my pec about a week and half ago. This was the same pec that I tore 9 years ago that started my bodybuilding. I have surgery scheduled for Thursday. As you can assume prep is over. Its taken me this long to come to terms and write this update because I was really bummed. I felt I was on course for my best look to date. So now the focus has shifted, I plan to do my best to recover well but as speedy as possible. During this time I will rethink my chest training as well as my training as a whole. The goal after recovery will always be to add muscle but I have to do it the safest way possible. By the time I recover fully I should have a brand new baby or close to it. So when that time comes I'll have to see how everything fits together with training and being a parent. I'll keep logging so hopefully you stay tuned for my recovery logs.

    that sucks man... sorry to hear that.

    but congrats on the baby! First kid? If so, your priorities will shift, bodybuilding will still be important to you. But everything happens for a reason. Take this down time to focus mentally on what you want your future to look like. Itíll all fall in place bro.

    good luck man

    Currently I'm 1 week post operation. Nothing major to report, as far as I know surgery went well. I did find out my first pec tear was different than my current one. My first was a tear in the middle and was sutured back together. This tear was complete rupture of the tendon from bone. So they drilled 3 holes into my humerus and reattached the tendon. I'm hoping to get cleared to get back to cardio after my post op follow up in another week. Currently I'm only using 250 mg test e weekly from PSL. Once I get cleared for cardio I plan on adding hgh back in will still try to lean out some while I recover. Still unsure of how I will proceed once I can lift.

    Thanks for the kind words and support. I was bench pressing 225 both times it tore. So my advice would be to eliminate flat barbell bench in your exercise selection.

    Currently things are still moving slowly on the recovery path. Since my post op I've only been able to do the range of motion exercises on a pulley system. There isn't any pain in my pec but the shoulder stiffness was very unexpected. I asked about returning to gym just for cardio but was denied for possibility of a trip fall scenario and getting reinjured which makes sense. I've adjusted my eating habits going toa 3-4 meal a day instead of my usual 5-6. Calories have been lowered and protein has been lowered too. Trying to eat more like a normal person until I have the need to eat like a bodybuilder. This will give my system a break from all the protein and other stressors I place on it. I am still following my trt with 250 mg weekly of test e from PSL. I also plan to start back on a low dose of hgh to help with healing soon.

    Just a quick update, I got cleared to stop wearing my sling yesterday. I went to physical therapy this morning and i have to start doing more range of motion exercises and some activation exercises for the shoulder and pec. I'm still only allowed to lift 1-2 pounds with the injured arm. I did get cleared to do cardio on a treadmill or stationary bike. So my plan is to start incorporating morning cardio some and clean up my nutrition a bit. I'm still currently taking 250 mg test e weekly from PSL. I've held my size pretty well in my non affected areas. Once I get more clearance to go to the gym I hope to get back to some form of bodybuilding.

    Not much to update on. Currently still doing non weighted exercises for physical therapy. Basically range of motion exercises for the shoulder. I'm doing light walks with my pregnant wife. As the weather goes bad I'll start to go to the gym for the treadmill most likely. My nutrition has also been cut back. Not taking in as many calories and eating more like a normal person. Definitely added some body fat but not worried about it till I can really get back in the groove of gym and cardio. Still running 250 mg test e weekly from PSL. Seems to be doing a good job of holding size.

    Still recovering and haven't been cleared for much. I have started doing a weekly cycling class since the bike is 1 thing I can do. Definitely let myself go a bit so starting to clean things up as I get ready for November when I hopefully get cleared for all forms of cardio and can at least workout other muscle groups. I also lowered my weekly dosage to 200 mg of PSL test e weekly. No plans currently as I have wait and see what happens with what my surgeon says.

    I finally got clearance to start stretching my pec and return to the gym this week. I'm excited and a bit nervous all at once. Right now there is still a long road in front of me to get to a point where I can train my chest in the gym. While doing that I have to figure out how realistic it is to expect to keep or gain pec muscle without being able to go heavy. But I guess that is essentially what bodybuilding is, finding a way to improve with whatever obstacles or limitations you may have. Currently the plan is get morning cardio going regularly and start to ease myself back into training the other body parts more intensely. Still running 200 mg test e from PSL weekly.

    I got back into the gym multiple times this week. I also stepped on the scale and I've ballooned up to 255. Which it's not a good 255 as you could expect with no exercise. So as I rehab my pec my goal is to drop 30 lbs of fat over the next 2-3 months. I feel by that time my first child should be here, my physical therapy should be more advanced and I should have a good idea of my new routine. Now of course things can change a newborn may cause lots of time constraints so I'm leaving myself room to figure it out. For right now I'll take as many lifting sessions as I can get in and I'll slowly ramp up my morning cardio till I reach my goal. Nutrition wise I still stay pretty clean but I allow a small desert a couple times a week. I pay attention to portion sizes more so than fully jumping into a prep type situation. I'm also sticking with my 200 mg weekly of test e from PSL. Works really well for me to maintain size and feel good.

    Just finished up another PT appointment this morning. I cleared to progress in kneeling push ups and some very light dumbbell pec work. Currently I'm still hitting the gym 3-4 days per week while still in a fat loss phase. I'm hoping to get back to a regimented schedule after our child is born. For now I'm going by feel and keeping my gym time 90 minutes or lower. Everything is going to be brand new soon, training differently to avoid injury, finding time with a family to train and doing more around the house while my wife recovers from giving birth. Currently I'm still sticking with my 200 mg of test e weekly from PSL. Plan to get some bloodwork done in January to see where I'm at and go from there.
