Still follow it to a degree and do a little strength training, but mainly cardio and martial arts

More interested by Arm wrestling which I have been following for many years and is really blowing up

No offence taken pal, I am a fat f**k anyway so I know I need to lose weight.
The reality of course is that it is now my only option to lose weight... Which is not a bad thing anyway for my overall health.
Private is well out of my current cashflow, and black market is also out of reach too. NHS is going to be a long slog for treatment too, but it is the only route I have so I need to ride it out.
I will undertake a change of ways and shed some weight, but the hardest part is my current lack of drive, desire and general feeling of feeling like a sack of s**t. Brain fog is often crippling at times, and eveything is just a slog, but I have no choice but to 'man up' and try my best.
I think the best approach for me will be very aggressive fasting, keto diet and exercising more than my daily walk to and from work of 5k.

Just do your best buddy and push those c**ts to do right by you

The NHS are usless and backwards in many ways. I have good faith by this time next year you will be doing much better one way or the other

We have to help ourselves first and make sure we also get the medical attention we deserve

Good luck and keep us posted! I genuinely hope you do much better soon

I wasn't trying to be condescending in my post, just that losing some timber can at least help in a little way. I know motivation is going to be tough with low testosterone, but you can do it.

Don't take this the wrong way mate, but trim off 10-20kg and then have your bloods taken
I was 120Kg at 6 foot pre covid and I thought I felt decent

However, losing over 20kg has made a huge difference. I feel like I am 25 again rather than approaching 40. Although to be fair my energy levels, libido where not bad per say, they have increased a lot

So again, I don't mean to be rude, but help yourself first, then if they don't increase? Push harder or just go private mate

In fact many go private because of the length of time etc it takes through the NHS.

Cleaning up the diet, getting some good cardio in and shifting excess fat can do wonders for your wellbeing.

Of course if your levels are still low, then that is a proper medical issue. However, the NHS are a joke and I would still help myself.

Pete Rubish abused the f**k out of Drugs for over a decade and he has numerous videos up on how he improved his health and fitness, while slowly rebuilding his Test levels without TRT. He is only 30, but he has some good stuff on the subject.

Good luck either way


Just read the part about not affording private
Then you have to push

Though I still feel relatively good, I will get my test levels checked next year. I was doing some research and there are a couple of private practices that are very good and not too expensive either

Have you guys tried more natural ways of boosting your testoserone first? Like following a very healthy lifestyle and getting the body fat to optimal levels?

I understand that some will suffer low test no matter what, but I would try everything to fix my levels through diet, exercise, rest etc first before jumping on trt

Also if I was to go on TRT and the NHS were unlikely to pay? Then I think I would get in touch with Big Rory and save myself a fortune

If a powerlifting comp was being held in my Garden, I would shut the blinds and plug in my headphones

I did enjoy training it and competing, but watching? No thanks!

Thank you haha, I have certainly done some damage in the past not only to myself, but also buffet restaurants.
The honest answer is that I sought professional help for food addiction, but my GP shot me down in classic GP style. I ended up doing my own therapy and learned tools to help me with my own eating issues. However, it does still creep up on me quite often and I have to take a step back and have word with myself. The strongest tool I learned was self-accountability and the art of discipline.
I dont think it is a culture shock because I still eat foods that I like, just try my best to manage my intake and not eat everything in sight. Last night I cooked a 2kg beef joint, and once rested and served, I ate 500g of beef and consumed all the resting juices. I felt fairly full and content in my stomach, but my brain was delayed and was trying to make me eat more. I declined and stood strong, and maintained my discipline.
The current situation I find myself is so far has been quite easy to manage. My weight has gone up and down over the last 10 years, with my lowest weight of 93kg when I competed in a comp, up to my a ghastly 120kg. None of that is quality tissue mind, but I do carry it quite well.
Regardless, my health is currently a focus and I do not need to be the weight I am now at 40 years of age. It offers me no benefit, and it certainly is not needed for sporting performance. Just a fat mess sadly. All of that comes down to a life long issue with overeating and gluttony (Which is why I gravitated to strongman and powerlifting to 'justify' the eating).
My advice to anyone past 40 is to really take a good hard and long look in the mirror and to be honest with yourself, which is often the hardest person to be honest with. Health truly is wealth!
Find a diet, or at least a nutritional plan that you like, and that you can follow. Be more active, and try to take positive steps to change things. Keep an eye on markers such as blood pressure, weight, body fat levels, quality and amount of sleep, blood work if you can. Ive got 4 kids ranging from 16 to almost 2, and Id rather they didnt have to come to my funeral for another 40 plus years.

Amazing post

Food addiction is real, nobody chooses to be obese despite what they may say. It looks terrible and most important it's terrible for your health

Good on you for getting on track. I too have drastically changed my lifestyle in recent years.

Eating low/moderate carbs
Higher healthy fats
Moderate to high protein
4 litres of water per day
Getting plenty of fibre

The above has made a massive difference. Not only to physical health, but also mental health

I wouldn't swap how I feel now for 1000kg total. No way in hell!

Health over strength any day!

Couldn't agree more

No point being the strongest man in the hospital or the Cemetery

Probably not an answer many want to hear who love strength, but perhaps it's time to drop the calories by at least 25% and follow something like a Mediterranean diet and try some fasting

It should definitely lower your blood sugar
My Father was pre diabetic and was able to control it for many years by eating a clean diet and doing some fasting

Since lockdown ended I have tried to really take care of my health. I still do some strength training, but Marital arts and general fitness are more important to me

I'm squatting 180-200 and deadlifting 200-220 now and I rarely bench, but do more OHP instead.

I guess I was never going to be the strongest guy ever, but I lost whatever passion I had to get stronger. I feel so much fitter now, physically and mentally

I have used sarms, but never black venom
I know a pro bodybuilder that has used it and was very impressed with the strength and pump

He was on a cruise, so decided to try sarms and was recommended the venom

He said it was as good as many orals and felt actually very good on it. Mind you he would have been on test, so suppression wasn't a major issue

Just because something is legal, it doesn't make it safe

I actually might try a cycle of this stuff myself. Martial arts is my focus now, but a little more muscle won't do any harm
» Paul Savage has died (Go to post)08-12-2022 @ 22:21 
f**k me I just happened to come on here to see if any news, as it's been a while, but this is an absolute shock

He was definitely a character if nothing else and his journal was gold at a time

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and of course Rebecca also

He was even younger than me. Very, very sad

RIP Paul

This viral video has rocked the wef.

Danny The Great Reset is not real, it is all a conspiracy (despite the fact they don't hide it)

The World is heading in a terrible place and this is why Covid was released imo to get the ball rolling

empty beds ready to go again.

we plan to grow another type of Kale as well as caulies and broccoli. If the s@@@t hits the fan in winter we will be pleased we did.

for those stuck and cant move on with BBC fear news... have a video of this lovely man from GB news.

I find myself working on a new site with a great new bunch of boys...almost all of them awake. This in contrast to the last lot - 47 out of 50 were sold. Happy times, good conversations and guess what? almost all of them are growing food in preperationHappy Weve been swapping stories and insights as well as plants Grin

The Great Reset in full swing, there is no stopping it now!

rawlifter said:Im doing the russian squat routine at the moment and finiding it usefull

still deadlifting heavy x 1 a week and benching 3 times and making progress - may restart the routine again as soon as i finish with a higher weght

Thanks for the share pal, it looks' interesting!
I am more focused on Judo training right now, but I have based all my strength training primarily around squats and strict press to a lesser degree, no deadlifts and little bench here and there

I might give this a try!

He is 100% right about the public being fed 2+2 = 5

I have no doubt the brainwashed would start believing in Santa again if the MS Media kept reporting it!
