My "beaux ideal" body type.
I forgot about this thread (or couldn't find it) when I posted this a while back, so am entering it here in TFP Health Club.
I don't find a forum or thread on general health topics, so I'll put this here under food. Since food eaten has an effect on lipids in the blood, or so they say.
My Results from lab on Sept 9, 2019:
Triglycerides: 61 mg/dL
Cholesterol, Total: 86 mg/dL
HDL Cholesterol: 33 mg/dL
LDL Cholesterol: 41 mg/dL
VLDL Cholesterol: 12 mg/dL
My HDL is a little low but not a cause for concern, since triglycerides are also very low. I don't take statins or any other cholesterol meds, or any other meds except for multivitamins with iron and Vitamin D. I have a prescription for diuretics which I can take on an "as needed" basis, since I sometimes tend to retain water.
How YOU doing.....!
Remember to always train legs, and hamstrings are part of your legs. They are the biceps of the lower body.
I have been consistent with my vitamins now for a while. I used to take them off and on, but now I get my vitamin D and a multi every night. Just finished a 365 tablet multi bottle, and it had not even expired yet. Woot.
I recently cut more vitamins from my regime. I'm down to a vitamin C and a mini aspirin in the morning, and a multivitamin and a mini aspirin at night. Will take iron, calcium, & D3 occasionally.
Colorado has shut down all gyms in the state due to coronavirus concerns for at least a month. I get it, but it sucks for me especially when I am in the middle of a cycle. I had been making good results. My squats were back into numbers from my 20's (405x3) and I was bench pressing more than I ever had before (315x5). Oh well, nothing to be done but work out at home. I have a set of adjustable dumbbells that goes up to 50 lb. I won't be able to do heavy lifting but at lesst I can concentrate on lunges for legs and lots of shoulder and arm work. Also going back to a maintenance dose of trt while this is all going on.
Bought some exercise bands that attach to handles with little clips. Resistances range from 10 to 50 lbs per band, but multiple bands can be used. Definitely added more variety to my at home training routine.
I sure am glad that I invested in my own home gym years ago
Must be nice now, but for me I like the commercial gyms in general. More variety and equipment, and more motivational being around others working out. I'd have more trouble keeping consistent with not having it be a thing. But when I'm Going To The Gym, it's a commitment. I'm there and I don't want to waste my time. But that's me.
Only thing I use the gym for is cardio equipment. I have no problems moving heavy iron on my own, but I did make sure I bought a cage for safety.
I know I tend to post lots of pics of my legs, but it really is my best bodyparts. Especially my calves.
