25 year old UK loser here, maybe I'll write a proper story about myself at some point but for now I'm going to keep myself accountable with a gym log here. I've mostly been a long time lurker & have only a few posts, so here's the first stage of me getting serious & embracing the GLL ethos.
I've been interested in health & fitness since about 19, but I've never been to the gym consistently for more than SIX WEEKS. You know what that equates to? Zero gains. I'm also super paranoid about my left knee as I badly damaged my patella tendon ~2.5 years ago and it's forever in the back of my mind. Should be fine though, I'm squatting decently heavy (for me) so that's nice, & I just ordered some knee sleeves from strength shop.
I don't know if it's due to a bad relationship last year, or the upcoming summer, or maybe the fact that I've finally given myself permission to the become the person I know I can be as to where the motivation is coming from, but I've been consistent so far since March 31. I bought myself some osta-red & did a 40 day research cycle @ 25mg. Perhaps I'll do a write-up or maybe just respond if anyone has any questions, as this is from the point of view of someone more in the beginner realm than a well trained athlete. Currently ~ two weeks into PCT.
Biceps 12.5" (right), 12" (left) (would have done other measurements but couldn't find my tape measure at the time)
Now 13 1/4", 12 3/4" which is nice since I haven't really done direct arm work, just the heavy compounds
Weight is around 148lbs/67.1kg
Monday 23 May:
Squat 80 3x8 (haven't squatted for ~ one week due to mild hip flexor strain)
Bench 60 4x6
OHP 40 2x5, 42.5 1x5 (push press last two reps)
Deadlift 110 x 4 (holding the bar at lockout for 10s for grip)
Chins 10, 8, 6
Chest cable flies
Hanging leg raises
I'm not following a program, just broing out as much as possible due to upcoming holiday. I started Johnny Candito's six week program but strained my hip flexor so whatever. Gain time.
I am developing a program on how to strengthen knees and backs. Supplements and sarms focused, with extensive diet changes. I had severe issues with my knees in my 20s and have mostly reversed the issue with an extensive program. Stay tuned, and I'll keep an eye on your log if I can help in any way, good luck!
^ Interesting concept - I overloaded my patella tendon, it was purely my fault. The joint itself is fine though, everything tracks correctly & I've never had ligament issues. I'll get some more osta soon, but won't cycle again until later in the year. If SARMs are good for tendons as well then that's a bonus.

Back to it! I went on holiday then have just been lazy getting back to the gym since arriving back in England. I haven't lost that much strength for over one month so that's positive. I'm sure I'll feel the effects tomorrow...
Sat 30 July
Weighed 144.2lbs (~65.5kgs) in the morning...
Squat 80 x 5, 6, 85 x 5
Deadlift 100 x 5

Edit: Also have 3x bottles of OSTA & 2x PCT. Will hit DC7 up at some point for some MK-677 & melanotan as well. Not going to start any sort of research for a good few weeks, for now I'm simply going to get back into a routine.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
