Chins? DB rows?


Pull ups, DB rows, bent over barbell rows, plate/DB pull overs, seated row, T-bar row... ?

Surely DB/BB rows would be the same as bench rows? I work out at home so will try get a chin up bar

Day off today for college work. Chest & Back later this afternoon, legs still in bits from the above session on Saturday, so Deadlifts should be interesting!

Decided against deadlifts in the end, legs still very much fatigued. Training went something like this:

Bench
50 x 10
50 x 10
50 x 10
60 x 10
60 x 8

Bench Rows
50 x 10
50 x 10
50 x 10

DB Flyes
12 x 10
12 x 10
12 x 10

BB Rows
50 x 10
50 x 10
50 x 10

I always do rows overhand grip but this caused a lot of pain in my right wrist, the one I injured 2 months ago. Switched to underhand grip which I never use and actually had no pain, strange. Felt it more in lats too so may keep this as usual grip from now on.
DB Flyes were fairly easy so will up weight next time.

Hi guys, sorry for not updating much.

Turns out I have quite low testosterone for my age. Had 2 blood tests below range (especially LH) and was thobbed off by the doctor both times. Going back in November to see head doctor and try get referred to a specialist. Sucks pretty bad.

Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing?

Wow... haven't been on here for a while! About 8 months.

Well, since I've been gone I got diagnosed with low T, secondary hypogonadism, meaning my balls are fine basically but its the pituitary gland that isn't working properly. Had numerous appointments with the NHS but they wouldn't listen, so went private and now have diagnosis and treatment, with an NHS appointment soon after the private doctor wrote a letter of recommendation.

Currently on 25mg of Clomid per day, to try and kick start my gland or at least get me producing more LH and in turn, more testosterone.

Joined a proper gym instead of doing home workouts too; trying to go between 3-5 times a week.

Will keep this updated again if anyone fancies following along or wants to ask any further questions. Smiley

Cheers
Dan

I just read your post and then looked outside the window - heavy rain and some thunder in London, ha.  I suppose it was overdue though, the past few days have been quite nice.

Sorry to hear about the trouble you had with the NHS appointments, but it's good now that you have a diagnosis and can move forward.  Does this impact on your normal training capacity?

Hi Steve,

Haha - not here I'm afraid! About 22c without a spot of a breeze anywhere. Thank god for Air con.

I'm not really sure tbh, although typical low Testosterone would suggest so.

It usually takes 4-6 weeks before the Clomid takes full effect in the body, and it'll be 4 weeks this Thursday since starting treatment... hopefully get a blood test around the 6-7 week mark just to make sure that its in full flow, then see where we stand.

It's sort of a win-win really as in that if the NHS still be awkward and say "no we don't support Clomid etc...", then I just say fine, and carry on with my private doctor, albeit cost 20 a box (2 months supply).

Will be hoping for an MRI scan though to examine by pituitary gland.
