48 hours after leg training, I am incredibly sore. I have trouble walking and sitting up. I was going to fast today but I decided to get a high salt, high protein meal for dinner.

Is it true minoxidil and/or anti DHT gives a second shed?
I'm at 9 months...all little 1 inch to 2 inch hairs though not too many long hairs. When i had initial dread shed it was all kind of hair for 2 weeks during first month.

sheds are unpredictable, there's no evidence about second sheds but its certainly plausible. didn't you just start topical finasteride?

Yes but only a day ago...i have been shedding for about 2 weeks short hairs...maybe less than that.

Been on topical spironolactone and minoxidil since November.

Is there any drawback to abandoning the back squat and exclusively using the front squat?

I do front squats more often than back squats. It's better for isolating the vastus lateralis. Massive vastus lateralis = massive, powerful looking thighs

My back squat still managed to improve too

What is everyone’s view on taking steroids while avoiding hairloss. Does anyone have experience with ones that do not cause hairloss?

Oddly this is what I was also thinking. But I dunno, most of the advice I've heard is to pick a workout, any workout, and dedicate yourself to a routine of it. I'd guess for at least 1 month or 6 weeks, but at most 3 months.

So mixing it up every week would contradict that I feel. I guess the other way of looking at it is that it's a fortnightly routine heh.

To me, going off my bro science, it seems like full body is more for burning calories and cutting fat, splits are for bulking.

And I'm naturally a broad enough guy so it's not like I'm one of those guys trying to bulk from skinny, but bulking from decent foods is hard enough as it is without training that doesn't promote it. I was eating up to 4000 calories a day, and this is not the lifestyle I want, frankly. I dunno what to do when I return to bulking next month.

Maybe I need to rethink the whole thing but my calorific maintenance is 2800-3000 the last handful of times I checked, so as far as I'm aware I need those kinda calories for muscle gain.

How big are you - height, weight, and approximate body fat %?

2800-3000 is high for maintenance unless you're big. I'm 6'1"/240 pounds at ~20% body fat and my maint is around 2700-2800.

I'm 5'10 and right now I'm 192 pounds (just weighed myself moments ago by coincidence) but for the past month I've been closer to 200.

So not a "big" guy at all but I'm trying to remember where I kept getting this impression my maintenance is 2800 calories, I know the digital weighing scale says that but it surely wasn't my only influence as I never believed it.

Bf % is high like 25% I'd guess right now. Luckily it doesn't show on me for some reason, but yeah I'm a fatty.

I've had a lot of fun pigging out in the past couple months, but now I need to cut for a bit. Hopefully my willpower for fasting is not too far gone.

You can use an online TDEE calculator like the one here: https://tdeecalculator.net/ . I get you about the weight not showing. I'm 240, but people usually put me at 210-220. When I was 310 (my heaviest), people thought I was 260-270. Seems folks always think I'm 25-40 pounds less than I actually am. I do have dense bones and a lot of natural muscle mass, however. You must have a pretty slender/lean natural frame and carrying weight if you're at 25% BF at 192 - that would mean that your ideal weight at ~10% BF would be around ~160, which is pretty light for a 5'10" guy.

Yeah it's always around that or higher. I'm not sure if I understood your last sentence.

I do have a good frame, not only do people think I'm not fat but think I have a good intentional body composition of this size, and I'm probably even somewhat ripped or muscular bulky, even gym friends who are or have been on top condition have asked if I can see my abs and lol, so far off that. The fattest I've been in recent years was 215 and only then did I see a few pictures and think "ok look at your face, it's showing mane, put the cheeseburger down" but that weight is officially obese by BMI standards! Of course it should be showing.

To me I still feel the weight and often don't like it, obviously at 25% I can feel my gut when sitting up etc. But amazingly others don't notice. It doesn't really give you that drive to really cut down weight though.

Yeah, staying self-motivated when others don't think you're fat is hard lol. My last sentence meant that based on the numbers you provided, you'dd weight ~158-160 pounds if you were at 10% body fat, whereas I would expect someone 5'10" to be in the 165-170 range at 10% BF. I'm no expert, though. :p
