On the plus side insurance finally paid for my trt, after 3+ weeks off I feel weak as hell, but I did this workout (back to normal schedule this week)


Know that feel of going off and feeling like chit, glad your insurance came around.

Yeah, glad your insurance paid.
I'm missed doses due to traveling and know the "chit" feels myself.

They messed up and I got 2 x 10ml bottles for $10!

Theyre only supposed to cover a month at a time so if this is what they consider a months dose it's going to be a good xmas

Shoot, I would not worry about insurance.  Go to goodrx.com.   Ends up costing about $40.   I know 10$ is better but if you are waiting....

I have never gone off since starting.  I have dropped down to 100mg/week for the past 5-6 months.  I actually feel better there I think.   I feel groggy when I go 150-200.  Even a little worse going higher.   Never felt "great" from test, just felt back to "normal".   More is not better for me.(at least on how I feel)

100mg/week is what I've been on since I started. At 4 days out that has me averaging ~675 and that's where my Dr want's me to be at.

Usually 200mg a week for me but since going sub Q he bumped it to 200mg every 5 days since subQ is a lot less efficient

I turn 100mg IM into about @1200 total test which is a pretty good conversion but subQ is maybe half that!

Thanks for the goodrx reference id, and piperdown can you get the plastic probe instead of the old stink finger? The probe isnt fun but it does give a much more accurate number and having a nurse do it is a lot less stressful than a male dr going for gold with his hands lmao

I gather theres a mod at bb.com who's something of an expert in inserting plastic objects into his rectum if you need any more reassurance.

Don't know/didn't ask. My Doc only does the violation once every 3 years since my psa is low and has been stable. Besides Bando's the one that seems to be dreading the exam. After being poked and prodded most of my life most stuff doesn't bother me too much.

Somehow I managed to fuck up my left hip, MRI says its fine bar mild arthritis but the hip doesn't agree with the radiologist on that and hurts like shit all the time

Ortho thinks its my "severely degenerated" l5 disc causing refered pain so he's going to give me a cortisone shot in my lower back this week. Wish me luck lol

Oh,yeah, training, pressed the 110s for 8 last week. Going to try to get to 15 with the 100s for my next mission before heading back to 110s. Overall goal is to get back to 120s for 15, but damn that seems so far away

shot is booked for wednesday morning, I feel like a real dick taking extra time off @ work so close to xmas but this shit is killing me right now

One good thing though, getting a little less weak on upper body :D

DB press 100's x 14 - maybe could have got 15 but it was grindy so I dropped the weights.

Why so many reps?

Is 100 the highest your gym has?

It's a mental block, I'm honestly scared of going much over 100 and hearing my shoulder repair pop apart for the 3rd time :/

I had to take a while off lifting for moving house, a 2 day drive from SF to Dallas and then catching up at work on what I missed.

Nothing of note really, but I just pressed 90's x 20 - next stop 95's x 20 then I'll try for the 100s again.

As the proud new owner of a 3 car garage it's time to start building up my home gym again. I had to sell a LOT of it in the move, I'm down to the rack, hammer leg press, hammer iso row and dumbbells up to 110 (we had a hard weight limit on the move)

Interesting choice for what to keep and what to sell. At any rate, patience and Craigslist will get you fully outfitted in less than a year I bet.
