    The gym that I had been a member of for 12 years closed.
    It was a sad day.
    It was a old school free weight type gym

    I think I am going to have to stick to high rep machine training for awhile.
    I have shoulder and biceps tendon issues from lifting heavy for years.
    My joints cant take anymore heavy free weights.

    My treatment for prostate cancer requires that I go on medications that drop my test levels as low as possible.
    I am trying to figure out how to train to compensate for that.

    Thinking about giving competition another shot.
    I took 2nd last year.
    It took me six months to get over a biceps/shoulder injury.

    I am going to try and workaround my medical condition.
    This is going to require that I do lower weights and sets.

    I have been diagnosed with a disease that has required that they lower my test levels with injections and I have to take pills that block test production.
    This sucks.
    I am going to do the best I can and hope for the best.

    In case anyone is wondering why I am no longer updating this journal.
    I have developed a serious medical condition that has caused me to stop bodybuilding training.

    I have a doctors appointment next week to examine my chronic shoulder/biceps tendon issue.
    Hopefully I get a diagnosis besides that surgery is needed to repair it.
    I hope this all clears up before I need to start prepping for next season.

    I am doing lower body using moderate weights and due to the injury light weight upper body using hammer strength equipment.
    Cardio five days a week.
    Abs two days a week.


    My weight is holding at around 208.
    Diet is around 1800-2000 calories with a weekly refeed.
    I am trying to hold my weight gain during off-season to no more than 210lbs.

    I am now in off season.
    During the first week I will only be doing cardio.
    After that using light weights for a couple of weeks to recover from contest prep.
    I have some nagging injuries that need to heal.

    I am targeting to gain no more than 10 pounds off season.
