Always good to have the place to yourself! That's what I like most about the gym I go to now and the time I go. I have one side all to myself and it makes the workout that much better!

I've been taking this Genius Test for a month now and I have to say that I am pretty pleased with it. I've never taken a test supplement before and after doing a bit of reading, decided to give this a go for a least a month. I've actually gained weight since starting it and it's from building muscle. Now, I've also been hitting the protein hard and training properly, so it's a multi-pronged approach that is generating results, but I do think this supplement has played a big part in muscle development. Even Tracie commented last night about my physique changing a lot in the last month. She says she's never seen someone that can change form like I can! LOL So if you are thinking about getting a test supplement, I'd recommend this brand.

My problem with things like that are what happens when you stop taking them? Do you lose most of the gains you worked for?

I had no intention on getting "gains", so that's really of no worry to me. It's a nice side effect, the only I note, but could care less if I lose muscle mass after stopping them. For others though, I understand that's a consideration.

Fair enough. Since that is my goal that would bother me. That's why I've never taken steroids. It feels like a synthetic form of strength and I know if I ever got on them I would never come off.

Two big meetings today and the only prep I cared about was putting in work at the gym. It's amazing how much better I function mentally when I've been able to push myself physically. Didn't have time for a full workout, but I broke a good sweat and got a decent pump. Should carry me through my day!

Hope those of you pursuing fitness goals got/get after it today! 🤘

Keep hammering guys. Lots of great updates through here as I catch up on things.

I desperately want to get back in the gym and get my nutrition back on track. Sadly, I'm just too good at coming up with excuses since we've had the baby. Limited free time and no gym close by isn't helping. Eventually I'll get back into the swing of things, but for now I'll keep living through you gym rats.

JB, do you own a kettlebell?
Unfortunately, I do not own any weights except for a couple small dumbells.

I really have no excuse other than I'm being a lazy ass and putting fitness at a lower rung on my ladder of priorities.
You could always do push ups, sit ups, curl your new baby, etc.

A 30# kettlebell is well worth the money and you can punish yourself in 20 minutes. It's my favorite method of working out because nothing reminds me that I'm a weak bitch like 30#s whipping my ass!

Ha! Makes perfect sense to me. I will keep my eyes out for one.

Very good point. Again, laziness is my biggest enemy... Not equipment.

Well my only other advise would be to set specific goals. Don't have your goal be I just want to get healthier. Make it I want to lose this many pounds or bench this much weight. Humans are very goal oriented and setting a specific goal seems to help. It's also good to set specific smaller goals on your way to your overall goal.

We currently decided to start a diet to better our health as well. Just with out drinking pop I can feel a difference. I don’t feel all sluggish and tired all of the time. I started at 245 about a month ago and I’m down to about 240 now and that was nothing but giving up pop. Now we have changed our eating habits and carb intake to like 30g a day. Hopefully we can make a difference for our health.
