I know for a fact from the multiple messages I receive every day about exactly this, the number is far far greater than this.

    We know long-term testosterone therapy is both safe and efficacious. We know the multitude of quality of life and health benefits it offers. Regular testosterone checks must become a part of regular routine health screening for men as we age if we are really going to keep a handle on our health.

    If you feel you are suffering from low testosterone symptoms and have a GP that is reluctant to look further. I'd recommend heading over to a private blood testing service like Medichecks and taking the issue into your own hands. A simple testosterone check is only 30, and could save you a great deal of ball-ache (no pun intended) in the long run.

    Great advice shadow! Way to many of us have this common issue, and our GP just doesn't seem to want to even check for.. let alone acknowledge the possibility of having this condition.
    They would rather turn a blind eye so they dont have to deal with this problem.
    Thank you brother... i hope you are feeling better

    We have definitely had our opinions shift in the same direction. On many subjects. I really enjoy your videos. You are very good at making your point in terms everyone can understand. It's very clear you are very educated in your chosen profession. But don't speak from that how can you not know this stance. Keep up the work brother. Not sure their is money to he made in the vlog world but you have a gift brother.

    Really appreciate it man. I have never seen a penny from a YT video as they do not monetise videos about drugs, but the goal is to hopefully just help some people to be honest!

    You have accomplished that for sure. What about a discount series. Just saying brother I would buy. For sure. I know that's old school with all the devices we have now days. But I'm old. No believe it or not I can't even have a computer at my house. No Internet signal. Just a hillbilly in the sticks.

    Off-season posing practise for Jas at Emporium with the PCA crew today.

    Check the lat and delt pop!

    Jas has made some insane tissue gains this off-season, especially considering her training age (and of course, being a female). Excited to see a much improved package on the stage later this year!

    Little update.

    Been ticking along and cruising for a while now holding 220-225lbs for the past 5 weeks or so.

    Now that I've let things stabilise and given some time for the new muscle tissue to settle in, i'm beginning an aggressive mini-cut here to tighten up before growing again.

    Will post up some more initial details soon, but here's a comparison photo of me before the last cut 10 months ago at 206lbs, and on the right me upon waking this morning at 221.4lbs.
    To be starting this cut 15lbs heavier and a lot leaner than I was just under a year ago is awesome, I'm really happy with that.

    DNP & Thyroid Hormones

    After posting up about DNP yesterday, a few guys asked about using t3 with it.

    DNP is shown in rats to inhibit the deiodination of thyroxine. (http://www.eje-online.org/content/77/1/122.abstract).

    Deiodinase is an enzyme that removes an iodine molecule from t4 to convert it into t3.

    However, here is my favourite paper on this subject, looking at the thyroidal effects of DNP in humans. (http://sci-hub.tw/10.1210/jcem-16-8-1026)

    11 subjects were given 225mg/day. BMR increased in all subjects, including one that had no thyroid gland.

    The serum protein-bound iodine (PBI) fell in every subject over 48 hours. PBI estimates blood t3 and t4 blood level.

    As this research is pretty dated, PBI was the best form of testing thyroid function available to them at the time. We'd more likely look at free t4 and t3 now.

    Average increase in BMR in the subjects was 29%, which was hit just 48 hours after the first dose.

    So all in all, you don't need to use exogenous thyroid with DNP to see the huge increases in BMR we associate with the drug. However, it does appear thyroid function is compromised with DNP use, although not by direct mechanism.

    Re: TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    I've posted a few times on why I believe training frequency to not be of primary concern when designing a program with the goal of skeletal muscle tissue hypertrophy.

    Here is some brand new research on this point: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/29489727/

    When total weekly volume and intensity was matched, there was no difference in strength or lean tissue mass increases between a once or five times per week body part frequency in well-trained individuals.

    As I've said before, when it comes to programming for hypertrophy, keep it simple and focus on a total number of 'hard' sets per body part per week and progress via increasing load/improving execution/adding reps/adding sets etc over time.

    Re: TheShadow - PSL Sponsored Log

    I've seen a lot of responses to individuals noting weight loss stalling after sustained deficit periods along the lines of 'you are just eating too much' and 'you just aren't on a deficit, eat less'.

    Although this is absolutely true, don't underestimate the degree to which negative metabolic adaptations can occur, and how restoring some level of metabolic function could allow fat loss to continue to drop without having to pull back harder.

    From the paper linked below: 'RMR declined out of proportion to the decrease in body mass, demonstrating a substantial metabolic adaptation (-244 231 and -504 171 kcal/d at wk 6 and 30, respectively, P < 0.01)'. That is a harsh adaptation, especially even taking into account that the subjects were obese.

    To attenuate these adaptations, simply modulate your nutrition design to include a minimum of a 48 hour surplus period per week. You can keep total weekly calories the same, so that your overall caloric deficit stays the same, and simply shift more calories over to two days of the week.
