I gotta pull the plug on the bulk. It's impractical. My shit fucking hurts in the am. I am the heaviest I've ever been, and I'm not morbidly obese. I'm fatter than I'd like to be but that's fine, plenty of time to cut.

Plantar fasciitis is fucking nuts. I can't get out of bed mornings after I play. My shoulders are impinged in several places. My tendons can't keep up with the weight I'm pushing. I did too much on some exercise and immediate tennis elbow.. swing a bat the next morning and had to go to the emergency room for a cortisone shot. I can't keep up. Ps weighed myself at the hospital and I'm 221

It's fucking hard to accelerate, it's fucking hard to slow down after I do.


This was like 12 lbs ago




That's 43 lbs this bulk. My clothes.. do not fit. I've jumped 2-3 sizes. My baggy joggers are lululeggings now.

You're fuggin yolked man, nice.

I always go to absolute failure on my last set and really only 1 or 0 reps in reserve on other sets...I was actually thinking I might be going close to failure too frequently. I bench in a rack and don't stop that last rep until the bar isn't moving for like 5 seconds. And I'm definitely slow on the negatives as well, I've gotten a lot more disciplined the last few months as I learn more and more.

I'll post a physique once I'm done with my cut in a few months but it's far from special :chuckle: Might at least have a good before/after.

Got my blood work done. There are a handful of things that are just out of normal range. Ldl, however, is like twice what it should be.

Deciding what to do for the next 4 weeks.. whether it be recomp or to just stop the bulk or whatever.

Oh god I started running

Actually started as "bored of walking dogs in neighborhood let's go to the park"

Then I was like "kind of want to get this over with but also want to cover a decent distance" and then "let's throw on pace control to keep my walking speed brisk" and then "oh neat one lap is exactly one mile" and then i didn't stop until i'd done 4 miles

Sunday 58'
Tuesday 45' (10:12/12:46/11:49/10:38)
Today 43' (9:57/11:54/11:05/10:16)

i recall from high school my best mile time was 6:04 lol. 16 years and 30 lbs ago.

might start playing indoor soccer after taking a year off and it usually takes me three sessions over five months to get back into shape so

Roll...

I was just diagnosed with severe osteoporosis at the ripe age i
of 31. Yes, I'm a male.

I think I'm gonna inject all the shit I can get my hands on and do body building. This is unacceptable. Got nothing to lose.

Deffo hit the weights. No idea how much it helps bone density but I know it does help.

Just had an awesome workout this morning and that is after being awake from 2 to 4 AM thanks to my daughter. Weird how sometimes it just doesn't matter.

Also realized my workout log app (FitNotes) has some neat analyses.

Starting in June 2021...

Initial volume ~17,000 lbs/workout
Current volume ~25,000 lbs/workout (more on leg days)
Max volume 45,000 lbs (two-a-day)
Total volume 1.5M lbs (lol)
73 workouts, average 2.8/week

I'm gonna shoot for 3.5M in 2022! And get that average up to like 3.5/week realistically. Trying to see how my body responds to two on, one off which would be 4.7 per week but I don't think I will be able to maintain that.

Finally getting blood work done

My ldl is nuts. 190 a month ago, just clocked 165.that was after my blood was clear from aas

Going to actually clean the diet up so I can race to 100 and jump on again. I will really, really be turning a corner if I can cycle more than once a year.

215 right now.

My fucking feet hurts supporting all this weight. I'm probably gonna end up 190 super cut, hopefully 195, before the next bulk

Deffo not done with the cut but I finally got my hands on before and current pictures. Not a lot of pictures of me at peak fatness levels. Had to ask a friend. "Hey remember when we joked that you should take pics of me in the private jet for my Tinder profile pic? plz send I remember I looked really fat"
