    Yeah it’s pish. Always has been. Obs got worse as get older. Probably sleep related as don’t sleep well.

    doc prescribed trt. Diet isn’t the worst, but consistency is more the issue. Probably not enough cals consistently too.

    training is such a small part of my life these days anyway.

    I’m similar

    I sleep decent until I wake up for a piss. Might be 2hrs or it might be 6hrs after going to bed but once I wake up I’m wide awake

    I’d actually be tempted to put the two compound lifts together on those days. Mon squat bench
    Thur dead or row and overhead. You might find you can still comfortably recover from two compound movements. If not you really do have shitty recovery no offence
