Rehab log for nagging injuries - GH, peptides, and test/nandrolone

For older guys I believe that small amount of GH helps.Nothing wrong with high rep squats,plenty of speed skaters have used high reps up to 150,even 300.
agreed - even holding 50 lbs weights now in each hand I am doing high reps. Slowly adding more reps and my legs and glutes are growing. more than anything else, I can run up stairs, little job, walk my dogs for a few miles and not be in pain and limping.
I am sure the GH helped, but I am also very confident the peps did the most as I made the most improvements when I added in the new peps.
I will update in a few days on how the progress is going.

It hasn’t been a full week but I haves another 4 workouts in.
Leg work outs are going well - adding weight to my squat with dumbbells. Almost looks like a deadlift but my legs are fried when I’m done. Not heavy - holding 50 lb dumbbells and going until I think I will drop from exhaustion.
Had a great arm workout and upped my weight and did a few more reps - left bicep hasn’t bothered me so I can push it.
Same can be said for back workout. Upped my weight with no bicep pain - unfortunately I haven’t tried chins yet which are my fav exercise but I will.
Left pectoral muscle is not 100% so I still hold back. I do floor dumbbell presses and I added another 5 lbs to the bench so still progress with no pain after.
Happy I am so far but still holding myself back psychologically because I am just pleased to be able to work out and make some gains and have little to no injury pain.

I am v happy over the past two days. That nice day after feeling of soreness from a hard workout - I haven’t felt it in months. I have been working out over this log but not pushing enough to get sore other than injury pain. Keep in mind, I have been growing without pushing myself hard as I am making slow and steady progress but not like I could be.
Last two workouts - legs yesterday and today (upper back) are sore but that good sore.
An indication I am getting the balls to push myself without fear of injury.

Considering my injuries I had a very weird workout schedule: shoulders, legs (legs could be trained eod because I was doing body weight squats and nothing more), back, legs, arms legs (chest mixed in every third day when I was finally about to push a little).
I have started my standard 2 days on 1 day.
Tb 500 is down to 3 days a week at 2000 mcg, all else remains the same.
Back, shoulders, legs, arms (still chest in every third day). I am not doing your typical back workout due to the added stress on the biceps but I did do my arms and back workout back to back days for the first time in months.
Trust me this is a big improvement as I had no pain, prior I needed that extra day to recover my biceps.
I hope to be able to go back to a push/pull type split with legs once a week when I can really nuke them. All thisnis just a pipe dream at this point.

These might seem like small changes and mean little but to a guy who could do F all and was just going through the motions - this is a major improvement.

Just an update:
100 mg T enanthate, 200 mg primo a week, 2 iu of GH a day, 5000 TB500 a week, and BPC is once daily 500 mg into bicep and chest. Also now left tricep.
I managed to hurt my left tricep - nothing serious but enough that I know if I kept pushing the weight I would be worse off. Any tricep exercise - I dropped the weight by half and still do it and it is coming around. I am now injecting 500 mcg’s Into my left tricep as well. So three shots of 500 mcg’s in the three spots.
Yesterday was arms - obviously my triceps were not pushed hard but I took my biceps to failure on my last 4 sets and I can feel a little ‘good sore today’. This is major progress.
Same with forearms - don’t care if people think squeezing stress balls is a waste, I bought the best ones I could find and I do 100 squeezes before I hold my BW on the chin up bar or do wrist curls. Forearms - minor pain but good. It is almost impossible to get forearms sore but I really pushed them yesterday.
My back and neck are good, and all other injuries that healed stayed healed.
I am now able to push a little more and up the weight.
Mostly all positive - I had no plans on gaining weight but I have and a lot more than I wanted but it is muscle and not fat.
Thanks to all that follow and helped out with suggestions.

Morning- I would sit down, lift one leg up across my knee, find my Achilles’ tendon and inject right beside it. I’m sure I injected into it a few times. I had little marks all over the area, looked like a drug abuser if someone was inspecting my ankle. It hurt at times as there are a tremendous number of sensitive nerves in the area.
There should be absolutely no deems or selling from an insulin syringe but it is truly amazing. I tweaked my left again two weeks ago as I’m now doing sets of 50 reps with 100 lbs on my back which I know isn’t s lot but my legs are growing like crazy and this is major progress. I started again and it settled in 1 week. Bpc157 - specific brand, kept refrigerated, and reconstituted correctly can be a miracle for some injuries. For others - nope, might as well be injecting water.

How did you hurt it and you sure the swelling is from the insulin needles?
Best of luck

I haven’t updated this in a while so it’s time to to update.
I can’t recall what I wrote all before so here we go.
No more tb500, BPC 157 1000 mcg once a day - 500 in left tricep and 5 in left bicep.
TRT - same INNO and I have s large bottle of dracorex t400, they both test the same in bloods and make me feel the same.
INNO primo - 100-200 mg a week and don’t care if this is a small amount, I’m taking a marathon approach.
Sero GH - 2 iu’s a day.
Regular supplement protocol I take daily for antioxidant, Heart, liver and kidney protection.
Until I am able to really push it I work out at home with my heavy bag and dumbbells.
All weights have gone up and I am in no more pain other than I stupidly strained a tricep which isn’t bad but I’m skipping my skull crushers or kick backs, etc.
Added in a different squat/ deadlift with 50 lbs in each hand doing sets of 50. Doing bent rows and wish I had heavier weight.
My chest never took the final plunge to getting to 100%, not even close so I still stress it but don’t push it at all.
I do not eat for size, I eat for health, and add in protein shakes to ensure I get enough. I am on very little gear and I gained 20 pounds approx give or take 5 lbs doing this.
All positives and thanks for the healing. If I get to a little better, it’s back to the gym for me when I can move some real weight and have more options and will gain more. I guess this is a bulking cycle albeit I’m taking fuck all.

Didn’t run out, had a plan and stuck to it and I decided I would only run Tb for so many months.
No, BPC - I took 2000 a day for a long while and now around 1000 and no issues ever. The dosage according studies at 1000 is not a lot for my weight snd I’m no monster I’m 225. I went on studies nit the broscience of 250 twice a day.

Still taking BPC 100 mcg a day, TRT, low dose primo, and low dose GH.
not wanting to injury myself I have adjustable dumbbells at home, a heavy bag, a BOB for more accurate cardio punching, etc. Work out at home,
Point being I am not close to max in all exercises. I need heavier weight. This was a success with the exception of my chest which still gives me issues.
I curled max weight and high reps, squats (deep) sets of 50 with knee feeling good holding 100 lbs and for some that is a laugh but for me my legs have grown incredibly and bests limping, I backed off shoulder presses as I slightly strained a tricep that is almost 100% and I am adding 10 lbs each time I do my tricep exercises. Within 3 weeks I will be pressing max again.
Long story short - while on deca I was up to 226, not fat but not ripped by any stretch of the imagination but pain free workouts and making progress. I am trying to drop back down to 210-215 with diet and my strength is going up. Assume most of this is due to the fact I’m not scared to push harder.

This we an excellent experiment and glad I did it. I was a walking injury before and now I can’t push my chest but no pain if I don’t.

Quick update - started 500 mcg in tricep after the injury with the same brand BPC and I am healing much faster than in the past. Did shoulder presses tonight and some floor presses which is mostly upper chest and tricep with dumbbells, and felt great.
Bcp157 doesn’t work on everything but for me NCRP BPC157 is a huge plus for some injuries. Very happy I could do some presses and no pain. I could have pushed more but decided best not to try too much.

Probably last update. I was working out at home with adjustable dumbbells trying to heal. I have reduced my BPC by half, no TB500, and just taking 2-3 IU’s Sero, 100 of T enanthate and 150 of Primo.
I have exceeded by dumbbells (maxed out) in almost all exercises and thats high reps. My chest is coming around again and I hope it is going to stay healthy. My tricep blip healed quickly and I am getting stronger each workout, adding in new exercises with my new confidence and staying at 220 but my shirts are tighter and my stomach has shrunk.
I have a heavy bag and a ‘Bob’ which helps with kicks etc. I even did some front kicks with my bad right knee with no issues yesterday.
I’m not bragging - some of the avatars and weights you guys move is amazing. I am simply saying this was very successful and I’m glad I did it.
I am confident enough to change my routine to push, pull, legs, break, and repeat. First sign it is too much I will only work out two days in a row instead of three.
If you read this and your thinking it isn’t a big deal - it is to me as I couldn’t go two weeks without injuring something so I’m happy.
Thank you to anyone who followed and helped and a big thank you @bigtuna84 for the advice in areas when I was wasn’t sure what to do.

I will now be getting my membership back and pushing more - hope to stay around this weight but get stronger.

Take care GR

guess I lied - thought I would update again as I'm making progress with my chest. I lowered the reps to 10 and started back at the 10 lb weights. yesterday was push day and I easily maxed my adjustable dumbbell set with floor presses for chest/triceps with no pain. This is a first in a long time and I don't want to put the cart ahead of the horse but I usually know when I feel bad pain and I had none.
the only thing I added was using a tennis ball and rolling around to massage my chest muscle. I wasn't diligent in it though - maybe 3 times a week.
All weight is still going up and have maxed out on almost every exercise I am able to do with the dumbells. If there is any moral to this - don't give up - keep working and trying.
Just an update - cheers, GR

It’s tough, just got to progress a bit at a time.
Just a note, try not to roll too close to the thoracic outlet between your chest and shoulder. I went a bit overboard there 2 weeks ago and set all the nerves off. Took over a week to calm down, lol.

No problem, lately it feels as though my body doesn’t want me to start training again.
Nerve pinch gone, then I flare the nerves on the other side, that is gone, I was horsing around with my grandson (hes 110 lbs now) so he goes to run away, I grab him with my right hand, as he launches away, I do stop him, but feel something pull in my forearm, lol.
I’m training legs tonight so I don’t care, but fuck, I want 2020 to be better than 2019.

You are getting older, sir. It's those silly little injuries that hassle us the most.
