    As mentioned in the other thread, you really should be seeing an endo. You didn't talk too much about why you think you have low test. Low test can perhaps be easily treated, however it is often not...

    Your GP shouldn't prescribe you anything for this either. I wouldn't be too upset about that. However, any good GP should be able to refer you to an endocrinologist. If you have to wait a couple...

    Good job on the return to the stage. You looked good in this category - I saw some of the pics of you on stage and never realized it was you. I am bad with faces! Good luck in Halifax. We'll be in...

    Still use mine regularly. I have a size that is bigger than 'recommended' but I use it mostly to take off a little of the pressure from my shoulders. Basically assists the bottom of the lift and less...

    If you are aiming for fatloss, then I don't think the above will apply for very long. Once you lose a little, I'm sure you'll welcome reheated food

    I also thought that, but remember he's posted in the past. I believe what he meant was in the last 4 years he's been training steady, but prior to that it was on and off since he was 12....

    Those are strong lifts for your size. I think it's completely normal to lean out and not have abs even though you might feel noticeably leaner. Unless you have striated glutes and you still have no...

    Yes the point is that each day you can 'break a record' by setting up many records to break - rather than always trying to do 175 for as many reps as you can (for example)... If you always pick the...

    Good question, and way too many variables to get a good answer. One big factor is how trained you are, and how much variance you have within yourself. Everyone is different and just to give you an...

    If incredibly bloated and feeling like crap, it's likely you are well over 11% and that your numbers on the bench will likely not improve that much more with the added bulk. If ~10-12% then I would...

    I dunno...There are worse diets out there, and there are far better. But at the end of the week / month, you would likely do ok on this diet. Just as you would on any other diet. The problem with...

    Squatting with a 5 pound plate under heal is using the right idea, but not something I would do. Flat foot squatting might work for some, but its not an ideal position for most people. Instead of...

    Solid advice right there. There is always someone better, and not necessarily people who have trained longer or harder than you. Yes, sometimes they are better because they've been at it longer....

    1rm for curiosity seems like something I would avoid. Even powerlifters rarely do 1rm unless they are in a meet. When people say go for stength, I think a better interpretation would be 'lift with...

    Quite the opposite - most people deplete too much. Then they load too much. The sport is about extremes, so generally people always do everything to the max. Just like you guys were talking about...
