Steve,I was using beet powder for the Nitric Oxide content thinking it would give me a better pump.....results inconclusive, but I ended up throwing that shit away......nasty gross tasting shit.....other than that 2-3 cups of coffee.


I also take Vit. C,Vit D, cuz I was told by my doctor I was deficient in it,also my TRT.....100 mgs. per week only,baby aspirin daily,plus my prescribed meds to keep me from being a depressed anxiety ridden mess. LOL  ;D

Gotta` buy some Zinc,Magnesium,Milk Thistle,and a few other things.

Lately I`ve been having digestion issues.....I had Colitus a few years back.....trust me it was no fun....I`m a small guy and I lost 40 pounds and thought I was gonna` die.....AGAIN !

So to try to remedy this......lately I have been taking a Tbsp. of Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar diluted in cool water about 20 minutes before each meal,some probiotics,along with eating more pineapple for the Papain content, and yogurt 2 X a day for the active cultures,also Papya Enzyme tabs after each meal,fiber containing Physillium husk,.....seems to be working well thus far......it`s keeping my shit together ! ;D

Several years back i was having some serious digestive issues and intense heartburn.

I started taking a small shot of ACV mixed in warm water and local honey every morning.

Then ate two servings of yogurt a day.

After about a month my entire digestive tract seemed to change.

I`m telling you bro,it`s working great for me,I just it it continues to do so.

I mentioned in one post above how I had the shits,but in reality I had them for 5 days in a row....gross I know, but it truly had me worried with my past history of Clolitus.....plus Colitus killed my mother at only 50 years of age.

If it killed my drunken woman beagting father I wouldn`t have cared less but that one took me a long time to come back from......I was so fucked up with depression issues I drank almost all the time for 7 years until I finally stopped and got 4th. placed in my local hometown bodybuilding contest.

When Jeff King presented me my trophy he said:
"Thank God for muscle memory huh wes"

I literally shed as few tears on stage because I beat myself up so badly drinking with the poor me`s,I looked skeletal before I started training again.....I still have that trophy and the memory which was one of the good ones.

Started back today after my imposed medically induced layoff.....went really light with limited sets because I know I`m gonna` get as sore as Hell....I`ll increase as I go along of course.

Upper Body:
Flyes - 2 sets, one set of 30 reps then 25 reps with a slightly heavier weight
Two-Arm DB Rows - 2 sets 20 reps
Lateral Raise - 2 sets 15 reps
Seated Alternate DB Curls - 2 sets 15 reps
Seated One-Arm DB Extensions - 2 sets 15 reps
DB Wrist Curls - 2 sets 30 reps

Man it felt great getting some blood into the muscles and getting a nice pump again !

Soreness is gone but I aggravated my elbow throwing and piling up firewood.

Anyway,gonna go back to 6 days a week starting today.....still doing reduced sets,weights,and reps due to trying not to become sore since this will only be my second workout in a while.

Nov. 2nd. 2022

Upper Body:
DB Flyes - 3 X 25
Two-Arm DB Rows - 3 X 20,20,15
Seated DB Laterals - 3 X 20,20,15
Seated Alternate DB Curls - 3 X 15,12,10

Can`t do any pressing movements or Triceps until my elbow heals up....it`s as tender as a bitch from throwing heavy ass pieces of firewood onto a pile before I stacked it
  :'(.......trained with very little rest.

Second time training since I got sick.....I added a set and went a tad bit heavier......feeling great !

Smart to get enough recovery between workouts.

Is this your idea or did your personal trainer, Half-Rep Hankins, give you this advices?
