I know fellas..but when u get out of bed and your sheets looked like scene of a murder lol..
Shower is best 👌 😆 🤣
Brother I can't make this up, for the longest time when my acne was really bad on my scalp and shoulders going back a few years ago, my pillow and the sheets were covered every morning, it looked like someone peppered me with birdshot.
I ruined all of my wife's favorite sheets..

Can relate with the scalp acne. Ruining pillow cases gotta wait on haircuts too, till it settles down 😡 😤

Man it's something I don't wish on anyone.
I normally keep my hair nice and tight, but there was times it was pretty embarrassing walking around.

Was it something that just went away with time for you, or did you follow a certain protocol that helped. Mine is somewhat genetic, but AAS use and wearing a hardhat at work for long hours out in the elements is a bad combo. I’m a skin fade kinda guy, so when it gets bad can’t hit the barber up just out of courtesy lol 😭

I’ve always sorta had head acne on the back of my head, father sort of has it also. So, I’m kinda effed there. I’m on Deca as well currently, wouldn’t say it has worsened it for me, just yet. More than likely the high test. Should get bloods soon and probably take a break.

Agree on the weather, I’m at 27 degrees at work right now. I’m more of a tropical kinda guy.

I’m scared of accutane, haven’t read much about it other than it works well and stuff, but I try to mess with least amount of stuff possible. If you try it, let me know how it works.

1/30/23 Monday workout

Life has been super hectic. I'm having to work more hours than normal and it's been a real struggle to manage my time appropriately bc there is just so much going on. I'm not giving up though. Obstacles just make accomplishing my goals that much better.

Shoulders, Tris, abs

-Standing cable rear delt fly
3 x 15,12,10 + back off top set for 15 reps

-Incline Smith Press
3 x 12,10,8 + 15 rep back off after 8 rep top set
-Cable side Laterals

3 x 15,12,10 + 15 rep back off
- Bent over Dumbbell Rear Delt Raise Pronated Grip
2 x 15, 12, + 10 partial reps after full reps

-machine shoulder press (I switched to this opposed to db press due to my left shoulder giving me issues)
3 x 12, 10, 8 + top set drop for 15 reps

-Dips
50 reps (I was able to do all 50 which i was very happy about because 2 weeks ago i couldnt do all 50)

Tricep rope cable push downs
3x12-15

Reverse grip Unilateral Tricep cable push downs
3x10 each side

-Hanging Knee Raises
30 reps total

-Ab machine
50 reps total

All in all I'm definitely seeing some improvements over the past few weeks.

Weight is currently 194 pounds. Eating at/around maintenance. Had some appetite issues last week due to starting a new medication but it's back to normal now.

Intensity has been great. Appetite is way up this week and I am constantly hungry. Been super busy with work so I'm behind on my log. Been working on getting up at 5am and getting my workout in before work. I have much better workouts than the evening after working all day.

@Matt88 this log is awesome. Definitely a source of motivation after reading thru. Reminds me so much of when i got serious years back about lifestyle changes and prioritizing what was important. Kept it all together but the gym part. Thank you for this. Just got back in the gym today with a new ambition to get back at it. Damn did it feel good.So again thank you, I'm sure more have felt the same way after reading this.

Thank you for your kind words sir 🙏 Reading your words definitely motivates me to keep my log going. I've done a poor job I've updating it lately but i am trying to get back to it. I'm working so many work hours atm on top of everything else. So thank you for your words. Reading that reminds me that I'm motivating others. No matter how great or small I love having a positive impact on others!

The first few weeks of being back in the gym is definitely the hardest but once you get in a routine it definitely makes it a bit easier. Stay on it!

Had a kick ass leg workout. Had to trim a little volume off. I tweaked my low back at work. It's not hurting bad. Just enough to be annoying and enough to tell me to not over do it on any movements it hurts on. I've got a disc that already lived It's best life so it acts up occasionally. Some of the movements I have to do at work is extremely difficult to maintain good form on which is usually when it gets tweaked a bit. Experience tells me when it hurts to take it easy on it bc it won't magically stop on it's own 😂

Plate loaded Leg Press
4 x 15, 12, 10, 8
Smith Machine Squat
3 x 10
Lying Leg curls
3 x 15, 12, 10
Leg Ext.
3 x 15, 12, 10
seated calf raises
3 x 15 45 second rest

Walking down the gym steps was a task let me tell you!

Still eating at maintenance calories focusing on forming a solid routine and getting digestion primed for the upcoming food push!

Got good news recently. Boss said I should be able to cut back my work hours a bit in the coming weeks. That will be 12 hours less a week which equals a third day off which is huge for me when it comes to my gym goals! 3 days off = 3 days to workout that doesn't fall on a work day so my 4th gym day will be the only one that has to take place on a work day.

Still just running 300mg of test a week and 4 iu a day of HGH. Getting excited for the weeks of ahead bc its almost time to GROW GROW GROW!!

At first when my coach told me he wanted me to do a month of eating at maintenance and just 300mg of test I was pretty sad. I wanted to come out guns blazing!! But NOW I'm extremely GLAD he chose this path for me bc its exactly what I needed. If you got a coach boys learn to follow and respect their process! Coach, I know you will read this. Thank you sir! Big things to come!
