Totally stone walled on chinups, but i should be able to advance next week or the week after. Decided not to advance on rows until i sort out stability on them.

I added some new exercises yesterday and crap am i sore. Resting today. I try and take a long walk every day, even on days i lift. So i don't totally vege when i rest.

 

Yeah why is that lol, it doesn't matter how constant we are, change an exercise or angle and it feel's like we've just started training again lol. I find cold showers help....with the sore muscles that is

I really enjoy running. It's very relaxing for me and i don't really see it as part of my regime but a luxury. I have noticed that i run best when fasted but when i run fed i have more oomph and can go longer but feel bogged down. As a solution i have started adding 1 tbsp of honey to my pre run protein shakes. Best of both worlds and i have nergy up to wazzoo.

Well i guess an update is in order.

 

For the past couple months I have been experiencing really troubling signs in regards to my hormones. At first with my consistant training i could gor for 6-7 weeks of training before hitting my upper limit and needing a week off. It has since gotten to the point where i am taking 8 days of rest every 3-4 weeks. And in that time span i am just destroyed.

 

I didn't understand how i could go from fine to fucked in just a few months but apparently it can happen like a light switch.

 

My sleep was becoming more and more disrupted until finally i wasn't sleeping more than a few hrs a night. I finally took two solid weeks of rest and nothing resolved itself so i quit weightliftng and went to a doctor. My blood work showed i have low testostrrone free and total, very high cortisol and very high IGF-1.

 

After getting my lab results sent to an endocrinologis i recieved a call back and based on my medical history and those results they think i may have a tumor on my pituitary gland. Albeit, and luckily most likely benign.

 

So i have an appointment at UCSD on Dec. 16 and an MRI to diagnose my issue. Even if not a tumor they are certain there is one.

 

I am so depressed. My Crohn's has been flaring so hard because of all this i can barely take care of my mother. I am going into debt insanely fast with the car rentals , hotels and life shit.

 

I don't have any friends and no one to lean on. I have to appear strong for mom because she struggles herself. I feel so damn segretaed and isolated. All my hard work is being washed away.

 

But i am trying to stay positive and looking for the light at the end. But it's really hard when everything you've done crumples around you and you have no one to lean on at all.

 

I guess i am thankful i am still kicking and mom is healthy. And for you guys. You're all the support i have.

 

Kyle, out.

An update. So basically what ended up happening is my Crohn's attacked my endocrine system. Coupled with an allergy/sensitivity to all grains that finally became acute and my exercise schedule (Which is heavily dependent on my endocrine system being able to function to repair me after workouts) I managed to inadvertently cause a crap ton of inflammation which sent my Crohn's into a shit storm which by some manner managed to fry my endocrine system, tank my testosterone and raised my cortisol. I became suspicious when I noticed my liver enzymes were elevated which can be caused by inflammation and a disrupted endocrine system. Also my thyroid hormone was lowered as is evident by my new rested blood work which shows a marked increase. Another sign my efforts working out were not healing was my high creatine kinesis level. My low free testosterone was another sign my endocrine system was on the fritz too but was more of a byproduct of this but also swung back around to bite me in the ass. We just didn't know why everything was so screwed up, the fatigue sent us chasing our tails. It was one giant feedback loop with the primary cause being Crohn's . I had to really play detective and look at all my blood work and do a lot of research and harassing my awesome 1/2 Western 1/2 natural path doctor.

 

Resting for a few weeks or so and then easing back into training starting with body weight only then with a drastically changed ha grain free high fat diet and truncated high intensity low volume routine. Looking at swapping my jogs with Sprints and shaving my routines down to 30-45 min 3x a week focusing primarily on my bread and butter compounds. Keep with reverse pyramid in but also going to try a tighter cluster that Martin of lean gains likes at 4/5/6.

 

I am also taking Mike Mahler aggressive strength testosterone booster but since I am fighting up hill I cannot tell if it is working yet. I will know when I get my blood re tested in mid January. He is a great, well educated and very helpful dude.

 

Well see how my levels look in February. For starting reference my free test is 40. 6 my bioavailable is 90.6 and my total is 357.

 

I have lost a lot of muscle but I am determined not to go down without a fight. I am a Goddamn viking and I refuse to lay down and take it. I have redoubled my efforts and become a very strict grain free Vegan in the last couple weeks too.

 

See you in a few weeks.
