    Got my pro card!

    Hi all. Its been awhile since I checked in. I thought I'd see what's new around here and to announce that I won my pro card in Physique masters at the North American Masters Championship last August. I've been off cycle since the competition and, although I'm still training regularly, its...

    Just won my first BB competition!

    Thanks Pete. The first, and probably most important thing I did, was hire a nutritionist with bb experience. He got me dialed in on my macros that started out with roughly 250g protein, 230g carbs and 50g healthy fats divided into 5 meals a day. Throughout the process, we slowly cut carbs...

    Just won my first BB competition!

    Like, never! Lol! I’ve always stayed on the “thin” side and probably fluctuated between 12 to 16% bf. Some people buy corvettes and date 20 year old girls during their midlife crisis, I decided to compete in a BB competition. Ha! The process took me about 8 months.

    Just won my first BB competition!

    I’m sure it’s not healthy long term. I definitely could not or would not want to stay that depleted. It doesn’t feel good. Im already back up to a healthy 6% and will probably get up to 8 or 9% before I start depleting again for my next competition. My trainer/nutritionist checked my bf weekly...

    Just won my first BB competition!

    Hey all, I started this journey 8 months ago. Went from 13% bf, down to 4% bf by April, when I competed in my first BB competition in Physique. I'm 53 and I took 1st place in masters and 4th in open! Been on this forum and watched just about all of Dylan's youtube videos. All of which helped...

    Tren Ace pip

    So, just an update.... First three out of three pins involved some pretty annoying pip. After my post and seeing some of the suggestions on here, I tried running hot water over the syringe just before injection. It worked! No pip! Problem solved. Very thankful I'm part of this forum...

    Tren Ace pip

    Interesting. I might try another manufacturer just to compare. Hoping the pip is the worst thing that happens. Would welcome that compared to night sweats and insomnia! So far so good, but I know it’s probaby a little too early to tell.

    Too much alcohol? What would the symptoms be with that?

    Tren Ace pip

    Yup, first short ester for me. Relieved to see it’s fairly normal experience. Starting test prop next week. I hear that could be fun too.
