    The most worrying this is that YOU can see it and I can see it but he’s so delusional he can’t see why it’s obvious. Worrying mental health issues at work from the guy/Lucy.

    It's usually only a comment most men hear with new girlfriends when they want your bank balance and your house haha

    Seriously though, you look tip top. How long have you been training and what was your start weight?

    Today's session
    2nd leg workout of the first rotation
    A little less volume than I'm used to but in all honesty I'm feeling battered after these sessions
    Its making me think I normally train with too much volume
    It would definitely seem like quality over quantity
    Warm ups not documented
    Seated leg curl - 3 working sets of 12-15 reps

    Leg press - 2 working sets @ 350kg
    11 reps
    2nd set a rest pause (rest 10 seconds) then double drop (drop a plate each side)
    10 rest 5 rest 4 drop 5 drop 3

    Leg extension - 2 working sets as above

    Lying leg curl - I threw these in as an extra for a little extra ham stimulation
    Just 1 working set
    12 rest 4 drop 4 drop 3

    Smith front squat - 90kg was enough here as my legs were pretty battered
    2 working sets
    6 reps
    5 reps drop 20kg 5 reps

    4 sets of standing calf raise, I never go heavy on these just full range of motion, stretch at the bottom and hold on toes at the top

    Prowler sledge to finish
    I just work till I nearly shit myself!

    60mins total cardio on the bike at home
    Pretty low intensity today

    I think I speak for everyone. It’s clearly obvious the covid and shitty eating over Xmas has had a disastrous affect on your physique. How you can post such pics is beyond me quite frankly. You must be up to what 9%BF now? Shocking.

    I'd say so for your size and how active you are, I'd love mine to be that low lol my food is already getting high and my weight doesn't seem to be shifting still and this bulk hasn't even got going yet, the food is gonna end up insane

    Been doing some sort of resistance training since my teens, im 41 now
    But I played football at a decent level through my 20s and was a typical weekend warrior, would undereat in the week and free for all at weekends
    Bro split and rarely trained legs as I was only concerned about looking good on a night out
    Joined this forum in 2013 and hired Con Parkin as a coach, he was a mod on here and really decent bloke
    Did a 12 week transformation, got the bodybuilding bug and not really looked back since

    Age is one factor id say
    Also, I have lowered my food this cruise just to maintain a slightly lower bf and weight as I feel much fitter and healthier with less bulk. That's the reason for a slow and steady recomp right now
    The last few months had featured quite a few cheats so overall cals probably still quite high
    I've only had this amount of cardio in since last summer too
    I think once I add this extra size and my body adjusts my new set point will be around 4,300cals
    Im already at that now and just 2 weeks of this consistency and no cheat meals I've already started to level off

    I've always trained seriously for the best part of 25 years (with a few lay offs now and again) but it has always been a hobby to me. I've never been in your shape/condition/size. Bit too late for me to start getting serious about conditioning now though. Goals were different when I was bodybuilding.

    Keep at it mate. You're a very motivational and inspirational member on here.

    Do you ever do SLDs, heavy glute bridges, hyperextensions, leg curls etc? It's the only area on you that's lagging compared to other bodyparts. Constructive advice not a criticism.

    I think he understands and appreciates constructive criticism from on outsiders viewpoint so why don't you just stay out of the chat I'm having with him? He's a Mod. I'm sure he can handle himself in a chat with a member and speak for himself . Nothing to do with you or anyone else is it.

    Not at all really
    Higher doses aren't well tolerated, 20mg of dbol would destroy appetite after about 10 days
    I'd say never much more than 1g total oil with occasional short blasts of an oral like var or tbol
    The most productive cycles have been
    Test n primo
    Test npp mast
    Tren used sparingly but only 2-300mg
