May is going to present some significant challenges to the workout plan. This is due to the fact that most days I leave for work at 6 am and arrive home at 10:45 pm. Hopefully, I can get some walking in and stair climbing during the week. The strength training will be relegated to Saturday and Sunday workouts.
I doubt that there will be many opportunities for new PRs given the work and workout schedule that I am undertaking.
Typical Lower/Upper Workouts
Lower and Arms (2 – 4 sets each)
Upper (2 - 4 sets each)
Seated Cable Rows
Dumbbell Squeeze Press
Dumbbell Bench Press
Dumbbell Incline Press
Hammer Strength Incline
Hammer Strength Decline

High prolactin symptoms according to the Mayo Clinic.
In females, prolactinoma can cause:
Irregular menstrual periods (oligomenorrhea) or no menstrual periods (amenorrhea)
Milky discharge from the breasts (galactorrhea) when not pregnant or breast-feeding
Painful intercourse due to vaginal dryness
Acne and excessive body and facial hair growth (hirsutism)
In males, prolactinoma can cause:
Decreased body and facial hair
Uncommonly, enlarged breasts (gynecomastia)
In both sexes, prolactinoma can cause:
Low bone density
Reduction of other hormone production by the pituitary gland (hypopituitarism) as a result of tumor pressure
Loss of interest in sexual activity
The prolactin control stack.
Mucuna pruriens 150 mg once or twice per day with meals
Mucuna Pruriens, also known as Velvet Bean, is a plant known for its high concentrations of levodopa (L-Dopa), the precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Unlike dopamine, L-Dopa easily penetrates the blood bran barrier where it exerts its positive effects on hormones, especially prolactin. In fact, L-Dopa has been shown to significantly inhibit prolactin release from the anterior pituitary (1,2) meaning that the nasty issues associated with high prolactin levels may be relieved through the proper use of Mucuna Pruriens because the L-Dopa found in Mucuna Pruriens boost your brain's dopamine levels, and dopamine is a key inhibitor of prolactin (3).
In addition to its powerful role in the reduction of prolactin, Mucuna Pruriens have also been known as a libido aid (4) but it wasn't until a few years ago that researchers uncovered just how this amazing herb exerts its effects. Men taking Mucuna Pruriens experienced increases in testosterone and luteinizing hormone (LH) (5), which can produce a favorable hormonal environment for bodybuilding, sex life, and overall sense of well-being.
Finally, it should be noted that Mucuna Pruriens is rich in serotonin and opioid receptor ligands, which along with L-Dopa may contribute profoundly to mood improvements (6). This, along with strong anecdotal feedback regarding L-Dopa's ability to reduce the refractory period associated with sexual activity gives Mucuna Pruriens very strong potential for helping increase pleasure and enjoyment.
Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) 50 mg once or twice per day with meals
P5P is the bioactive from of vitamin B6 and offers enhanced absorption and bioavailability and far improved effects over other inferior forms of vitamin B6. P5P is an important cofactor in the synthesis of dopamine, which as mentioned above, is the prime neuroendocrine inhibitor of prolactin release. In addition to helping control prolactin, P5P has a host of other benefits including optimizing amino acid metabolism, boosting immune function, facilitating neurotransmitter balance and brain function, and much, much more!
Vitex Agnus Castus 300 mg once or twice per day with meals
Vitex Agnus Castus, also known as Chaste berry, has long been used as a treatment for sexual disorders and insufficiency. However, it wasn't until recently that scientists examined the compounds in the plant and discovered that many of them can reduce prolactin as much as dopamine itself (7). Other human trials have confirmed that Vitex Agnus Castus is a strong inhibitor of prolactin (8). The key is dosing it properly, and Inhibit-P does just that (9).
As an added bonus, Vitex Agnus Castus has also been shown to significantly improve acne conditions in a large clinical trial (9)!

Stacking these two substances increases insulin sensitivity, fat oxidation and mitochondria synthesis according to a mice study that lasted 6 weeks. This means muscle cells burned more fat cells than they otherwise would have without stacking leucine and horny goat weed.
The human equivalent to the mice dosages are as follows.
Leucine 2 – 3 grams
Horny Goat Weed providing 20 – 30 mg of icariin

I got this from a Samoan Pastor (Frank M.) who got it from a kid in the gym he was going to. As he told me he was reduced to walking on crutches due to knee problems from years of football. A young man came up to him and said do this every night, it’s how my mom fixed my knee. He did it for months as he could not afford surgery. Well it worked.
He searched out the kid but never found him. Frank refers to the kid as his angel.
Give it a try. All you have to lose is a little money.
1 Clean area.
Rub fresh lemon juice on the area mixed with 1 – 3 drops of frankincense oil.
