He prefers short esters because they give huge supernatural spikes of hormone. It's like smoking crack as opposed to doing lines. But this hypocrite doesn't want to tell you that. Hypocrite also says he feels better no that he's off gear. He's totally full of shit. He's always been that guy on tons of gear that pretends he's not.

Get into being light, 2 years will erase most of the residual weight from PED. You will be a bad as$ 225-230 mfer, zero bloat or water weight. Respect.

Have to say one thing about your looks at this point at a lighter weight and off of the augmentative substances is that, you look much younger and healthier (more attractive) in the face than you did before....Does this not suggest that the benefits of being lighter offset your perceived negative opinion about being lighter.......Keep it up

That whole "body modification" thing is an example I always used. People would ask me why I train so much and eat so strictly and I say "the same reason people get tattoos, it's body modification at it's finest" the difference is that becoming big, strong, athletic is seriously hard work.

Not sure why, but i had the same issue this winter. I ended a test+primo cycle at christmas. In january i felt a little weird in the gym, then a month later i had flu like simptoms. Been to the ER, then to the Dr. Nothing! Bloods came fine. Only a small infection in the ear. I have not recovered fully from that small cycle. Recently i started 50mgs prop EOD and feel back to normal. Until now i had panic attacks and major anxiety, couldn't train and was demotivated to do anything... I'll be staying on trt until things begin to settle down in my life, then attempt a power pct... If that fails... then fuck... androgel and pins forever... But besides the cost and pinning, it not that bad, it actually better than natty.

I am 47 and have been on TRT for the past 2 years. I had knee surgery 4 months ago and I had to cut everything cold turkey. 2 weeks after surgery I felt like shit. Couldn't work out and no drugs sucked. I was 256lb before surgery and now I am 271lbs. I am back on TRT and have added Deca. I feel good again and my weight has gone down too. Don't think I will every come off TRT.

First thing I always notice when people go off is neck gets skinny and shoulders shrink no one talks about neck muscles but they make u look so much bigger and I'm sure some people exercise neck muscles but for some reason they fluctuate with the roids
Ptah Adam (3 months ago)
So Jimmy was cruising on 500mg for years and now he came off... And 200mg is a typical TRT dosage! What about an estrogen modulator and a pituitary gland activator? Your testes isn’t gonna produce testosterone at age 55 so your body is going to use muscle mass for energy. His muscles can come back with a low dose of test and good meal prep. Good luck with the health goals Jimmy.

If I recall correctly, a Doctor told Rich Piana that he was doing fine weeks before he died. Smart move on your part to drop the weight and cut the gear. You know your body better than anyone... including the Doctors. Your body was telling you that something deadly serious was about to happen... you deserve credit for listening to the warning signs your own body was giving you instead of listening to some other man even if he is a Doctor.

Millennium News how could a doctor predict an opioid overdose?
Inescapable Reality (4 months ago)
It's one thing to do TRT doses when you're old. It's another to go way beyond that to be hella huge. It's not healthy in any way to be a juggernaut after a certain age. But just doing TRT is doable while maintaining health.
onceuponthecross1 (4 months ago)
You look much better, imo.
Terrance Lee (4 months ago)
You're going have to stay on TRT because your body doesn't produce it's own Test anymore I guest...maybe 200mgs a wk like somebody just mentioned already I guest..but. You look great to me..I know you've gotta feel way more functional and want to maintain that...but the fact is you're a bodybuilder and you can't help it...that's why you don't like being that light..but it's best for you at this point in your life...

You are super jacked. Very impressive for someone in his 50's. I know it is hard to let all that muscle go, but at 5'10" or so 220 and lean is still bigger than most.

Hi James, just wondering why you only trained twice in 9 weeks? Is it because you stopped the test? Now that your feeling good and producing your own test again are you training more regular? Also love your videos.

Depends on what your fitness goals are. I climb tree's for a living so being super big and heavy would not work for me. I try to stay lean and muscular. Keeping stamina and flexibility is key for me strength is good but not my main thing.

I think you got depressed when you got smaller mostly from the steroid withdrawal.
Jim Piechowski (4 months ago)
After I watched this video I relate w/ something you said. I was 5-11 at 240 lbs and had plenty of mass. I decided to lean out and get down to about 220 lbs. while I was leaning out, I was was looking great, but losing all that mass made me look skinny and I didn't have that jacked feeling. I felt like I was a skinny twig, even though I was more muscular, vascular, and shredded, but losing all that mass played games w my head. Well, long story short, I'm at 215lbs now, I've never looked better and never felt better. I'll be 50 next year and it's time to keep that weight off. My diet totally consists of chicken, fish, and veggies..I keep my carbs on the lower side, but the carbs I do eat are all clean carbs.

Good video and much respect for putting all your personal problems out in the open. I totally feel you. As an army vet I have PTSD,anxiety personality disorder. Not to mention had lyme disease 10 years ago. the gym is my therapy. Been off and on gear,peptides,hgh for 8 years. Mostly testosterone,but always get blood work every 3 months. Last blood work my HCT were to high. Hemoglobin high. Pretty much my red blood cells are through the roof. Live in Europe so giving blood is not that easy. So I decided to come off test almost 2 week ago. Even at pharma grade 250 mg test a week prescribed by my doc and my test levels were almost at 3000. Nothing new to me. Also I'm tapering off my valium as I want to be completely clean. Except cannabis of course lol.. been off antidepressants/antipsychotics for years. Pharma companies are a joke Still killing the gym 5-6 times a week. With that being said brother. Maybe you can go the clomid route. I was never a believer in clomid,but I did it a few months ago and I felt great at a low dose. Trt doctors also prescribe it before they do the I injectable route and also have a buddy who did 25mgs a day and his levels were at almost 1000. Alright I'm rambling to much. U seem like a good dude..Take care bud

First 8 weeks off sucks. Second 8 is better. Third 8 is getting back to normal. My prediction is that you'll do fine and feel a lot better than when on 1/2 g of androgens. Normal everyday tasks will be more effortless like chopping wood or going on a hike.
Jody Wooten (4 months ago)
I think that's great, if you are feeling great, then your doing something right. Besides, we are just flesh and bone, it will be good to take a break and do kind of a reset. And yes, living longer would be awesome. Anyways, your still looking good brother
Ironbound84 (4 months ago)
IMO....200-250mg test a week would be a healthy move. Good luck sir and keep up the good work.

wow what a change your looking good!!! Wonder if you'd have felt good at 230 whilst being on 500mg of test, ive never taken gear ive dropped a lot of weight and I feel a lot better on all levels. Anyway thanks for the update, looking forward to seeing your progress, I think through your food you;ll boost your test naturally or atleast aid it and get close to 250 off gear :-)

Donbusto Arigato (4 months ago)
Nothing wrong with 238 or 230. Probably be better at 225 or less in terms of carrying around LESS weight for a six footer or so? It has been said that even carrying a lot of extra muscle is not the greatest thing for an older man. Being Big is not everything! Being strong and fit and healthy, yes! There is no real fountain of youth. Diet and training and sleep, constantly ADJUSTING for the fact that one is continually growing older and older. Panic attacks! Welcome to the HUMAN CONDITION. If you aren't already living unto death, AGE will teach you how to do that! Aging is a BXXTH, lol Graceful gray, less muscle, less T.? Getting old. I'm with you, but almost a decade further along! The hill just keeps getting steeper and steeper until you just can't climb it anymore. Not there yet, but I can see the peak I'll never get to from this age.

MegaSkyline69 (4 months ago)
It's good to see you back and looking healthier Jim. Your breathing seems a lot clearer to me. And the weight loss is a good idea once you get to our age. TBH the hardest thing is getting over the "headfuck" and panicky feelings.You know the ones, i'm sure. But seriously, you still look huge and jacked. I think if you came down just a lil' bit more. And did more regular light cardio and lifting. You could look all kinds of "different" Lets not fuck about here. You've got size and muscle sitting there. You've spent years doing the HARD part. The next part can only be good.
