    Working Calves without weights

    Is it possible to work Calves effectively without weights? I used to wonder if Hill Sprints were a good way to work Calves, wondering if the greater the gradient the more the Soleus is activated. Whereas the flatter the Hill the greater the Gastrocnemius is activated. Bro-science?

    Timing switching from TRT cream to SUS250

    I have been using 1ml of 10% test cream for a few months (script for low test levels).

I then thought well it's probably just easier to use SUS250 and taper down the...

    Have a look at my PPL Program. Then post a good comment.

    A change of program is needed at this in my lifting shenanigans to freshen things up in the gym. I like the PPL program because I want to reduce volume per session but increase frequency and intensity as I embark on a lean bulk over the next few months. I have done my best to achieve a 2:1 pull...
