    Primary focus in 2020 is health-based. With apnea (OSA) being such a limiting factor, the plan is to keep bodyweight below or around 260lbs, increase deep sleep and REM sleep to over 1hr each, to keep BF% to low levels and also to build upper body, especially back/arms and rehab of LHS, whilst enjoying working out and life in general.

    Current weight is 260lbs/118KG. Height is just over 6 foot.

    2019 : Won 2 qualifiers for Brits in Q1 (breaking 2 BPU British Records and winning Masters overall title in GPC). 2019 was the year I was going to break 800 and win the Brits twice (GPC and BPU). Sleep apnea hit so I slimmed down and stopped gear. I retired from SM and PL as I knew the heavy food/gear/lifting would bring back apnea. I started back in gym at 240lbs at beginning of July and was off gear for nearly 2 months and TRT for 2 or 3 further months. I started a Primo cycle on 12th October hoping to work towards a BB comp in Q4 2020, at beginning of December I hit 272lbs and apnea came back. I have no idea what future holds in the competitive arena.

    COMP HISTORY

    SM : 2013 : 100% record. 1 comp, 1 win (Herts Strongest Man (Novices)).
    PL : 2017-19 : 100% record. 5 comps, 5 wins including GPC British Championship Finals 2018 (u125/M2 RAW), current holder of 2 BPU British Records (SQ/DL - u125/M2 RAW(bare knees)).

    PICS

    November 3rd at 265lbs.

    HG_2.jpeg

    Areas to work on are (in order of priority):-

    Triceps.
    Mid/Upper Back/Lats.
    Biceps.

    DIET

    Approximately 4000 cals, 250P, 110F, 500C or somewhere in that region.

    No alcohol as I am teetotal. I don't smoke or take any recreational drugs. I don’t bother with peri-nutrition or any fads.

    SUPPS

    I don't use any supps at all but use one medicine : 1 anti-histamine (Ceterizine Hydrochloride - general allergies).

    TRAINING

    I have a long-standing left shoulder girdle injury which highly impedes my bench press. I have been receiving physio for a long time and there is a belief that it is related to posterior RC/SITS muscles. There could be an underlying nerve issue but unknown at this stage.

    I train for enjoyment so will do whatever I want whenever I want but will aim to stick to something similar to the below.

    Workout A (Tues)
    HS Slight Incline Bench Press Frame.
    Machine Flyes.
    Viking Press.
    BB Shrugs.
    Seated Machine Tricep Pushdowns.
    2 Tricep rope exercises supersetted until tricep death.

    Workout B (Thurs)
    Nautilus Pullover.
    CG Seated Row.
    WG Pulldown to Chest (independent rope for each arm/grip so spreads load evenly).
    Chest Supported Row.
    Seated OHP Machine.
    2 Bicep exercises supersetted until bicep death.

    Workout C (Sat)
    DB Bench Press.
    WG Pulldown to Chest (independent rope for each arm/grip so spreads load evenly).
    Lateral Raise Machine.
    Face Pulls.
    Tricep Pushdowns.
    2 Tricep rope exercises supersetted until tricep death.

    Workout D (Sun)
    Hack Squat.
    Ham Curls.
    Leg Extensions.
    Calf Raises.
    2 Bicep exercises supersetted until bicep death.
    Serratus Rehab.

    PBS

    Gym PBs : 300SQ (sleeves), 168BP, 305DL = 773KG total.
    Comp PBs : 300SQ (RAW/sleeves)/302.5SQ (Wraps), 155BP, 300DL = 757.5KG total.
    All-time total = 775.5KG.

    Best SQ (wraps) : SQ302.5 (GPC Brits, wraps, November 2018).



    Best SQ (RAW) : SQ300 (GPC, SBD knee sleeves, August 2017).



    Best DL (gym) : DL305 (1RM, just chalk, February 2016).



    Best BP (gym) : BP168 (Nortons, chalk, wrist wraps, September 2018)



    AAS

    Base stack, all Chiron.

    200mg Test E PW.
    20mg Cardarine (cycled).
    HCG, Adex and GH when I can be fooked.

    HEALTH

    I take health very seriously and try to follow the findings in this OP.

    https://www.tmuscle.co.uk/threads/sensible-precautions-whilst-using-aas.32313/

    2020 is the year I achieve a decent BB-type physique.

    Penguin Random House have bought up the rights for the forthcoming GWTofD book so I cannot reveal any more tasty nuggets of information on this public thread mate.

    Cheers mate, I'm 46yo now and could easily push BW much higher (I have been 300lbs in the past but not pretty) but I have to keep food and AAS very moderate to keep weight down or the sleep apnea returns.

    I feel much healthier at this weight anyhow.

    Cheers mate, due to my competitive nature I wanted to aim for a BB comp in Q4 2020 with JvD and for that, I'd need to bring up lats and arms of course. Even though I was low BF% when I hit 272lbs, apnea come back so I'm unsure what the future holds at this stage.

    I'd love to recover LHS and compete in the three disciplines at about 260lbs but...................

    whatever happens competitively I’m glad your supp use has come down so much, without being a PN I think you could of hit some major issues down the line with previous doses

    Best of luck mate.

    I’d guess at our age health is key as I’ve learnt this last year.
