nice to see somebody hitting those wide grip lat pulldowns
 
definitely sounds like a heavy duty workout good job
 
Switched routines to Jim Wendlers "Building the Monolith" for 6 weeks with a goal of building strength and size. Weighed in at 234.7 this morning and MacroFactor has my expenditure tanking as the weight increases. I haven't had to adjust my weight Belt at all with the weight gain but it's really tight as of today. I've gained 10lbs in a month but still have some faint visible abs, arms are still vascular and some stomach/rib veins are still visible.

Body dysmorphia is kicking in and I think I'm going to pump the brakes on gaining any more weight and switch to maintenance for a recomp for a few weeks and re-evaluate.. Is it still possible to gain muscle mass and drop body fat on a maintenance diet with 400mg a week Test? Anything else ya'll would add to that?

Today's routine was working up to 455 for 3 sets of 5 on deadlifts and 295 for 5 sets of 5 on bench, followed by 5x20 meadows rows and 100 curls.

Wednesdays work
Squats, worked up to 360 for 5x5
Overhead press, worked up to 185 for a set of 5 then backed down to 145x11. Supersetted everything with Pullups for a total of 117 and 100 facepulls.

Conditioning. 25 minute AMRAP
Torque sled push/pull
20 butterfly situps
10 dips. Ended with 12 rounds.

I've been loose with the diet, getting 3600-4000 calories a day, all clean foods, minimum of 250 protein, 400 carbs and 120 fats.
really nice base bro

Great training day
 
Push B Yesterday
Standing Press
185 for a total of 5 sets @ 19 total reps. Goal is 15. 195 lbs next workout

Incline Dbs
100s for 4 sets of 10. 110s next workout.

CG Bench
3 sets with a goal of 25 reps.
205 for 30 across the 3 sets . 215lbs next workout.

5 sets of Tricep pushdowns. 77 total reps @ 77lbs. Weight goes up next workout.

Standing DB Y raise. 20s for 50 total reps, rest pause style with 15 secs rest after failure before the next set. Weight and reps go up next workout.

Pull B Today.
Pendlay Rows @ 235lbs. 5 sets. 35 total reps. Goal was 15. Weight goes to 245 next workout.

Meadows Rows
5 sets, 50 rep goal. 100lbs the bar, 60 reps completed. 110lbs next workout

Weighted Chins.
3 sets, 20 rep goal. 25lbs for a total of 19. Weight stays the same next workout.

Finished with Incline curls for 5 sets with 25s and 50 reps. Hammer rope curls for 3 sets of 30 and 100 cable face pulls.

Now the question. I'm about to make an order from Napsgear.

Do I:
A) Drop my test to 200mg(Puts me at around 900 total test), or keep it high? Run anavar at 50mg for the next 7 weeks, drop calories to maintenance and increase Cardio for a "recomp".

B) keep the Test at 300mg and run tbol for a 7 week cycle @ 50mg a day with increased Cardio and a slight caloric surplus before cutting down. I really like the idea of the increased strength as I'm chasing a 600lb deadlift and 405 bench as my big goals for the year. Once this is complete, I'd switch to a cut at 200mg a week Test. Taking 6 weeks off orals then running Var for the final 6-7 weeks.

I haven't experienced any estrogen related sides that I can tell but as I'm about 6 weeks into the 400mg a week, I don't want to have to take an Ai if I can avoid it.

@LowcountryFF8058

good trainig

but the options are tough

I would pick option A

drop the test to 200mgs and add 50mgs anavar ed 8 weeks thats a great recomp, I think var will be a kill over dbol always
 
I honestly would use an AI
even if you don't feel any estrogen issues there's still things going on in your body
 
I would see how you feel and then go from there
