    Post Testosterone Enanthate only cycle - 1st in 14 years of training on/off
    Test Enanthate 500MG weekly for 20 weeks

    Week 1-20 T/E 500mg wkly
    Week 12-20 20mg Anavar (Oxandrolone) daily
    Week 23-26 post cycle therapy (pct) on Clomid/Nolvadex


    Stats

    **
    214 LB
    BF 15-20% have not checked
    Been training on/off for 13-14 Years.

    Primary lifts

    Lifts (1 RPM not done lately)
    Bench 250-260LB 1RPM (Weakest body part - many shoulder injuries over the years)
    Squat - 275LB 10-15 Reps (Knee deep)
    Deadlift - 335LB * 5 Reps

    All prior cycles have been Creatine/Glutamine

    I use(d) those exercises above as key gauges in measuring progress when doing Creatine/Glutamine cycles.


    My goals are too put on muscle mass/strength, while at the same time losing body fat. Looking to utilize the ECA cycle, has worked well for me in the past. I am looking to continue cardio as usual to minimize cardio vascular downgrade, as is indicated with general AAS usage.

    One compound used only to see how the body reacts. I was planning more than one compound, after reading StoneColdNto, i think that is best idea for newbies like me. More than compound, & if one gets side effects, you won't know what it's coming from.

    Furthermore, the research report that postulated that 600mg weekly works best per week for gaining strength, muscle mass, and fat loss -- gives me conviction to go with the single compound - and stick with it in the coming years as a base for all cycles.

    FYI looking to add 400-500MG Weekly Eq with 500mg T/E for next cycle by summer of 2011.

    For the first time around, I will have Nolvadex on hand, but will not use on a regular basis or anything else. Idea is to strictly run T/E and see the reaction.

    DIET - Vegetarian, no meats or fishes, eggs once in a while.

    Sources of protein Lentils/cheese/milk/whey

    1st injection completed Thursday Nov 25 2010 (2:50am)

    Looks like you did your research, but I am 99.9% sure you would be more satisfied with your results if you committed to either bulking or cutting instead of trying to do the both. Just think about it, if you eat clean when you bulk you won't be putting much fat on anyway, and in turn technically more muscle to fat ratio aka leaner. And you will be alot happier with the final outcome, but it all comes down to your choice.

    Good point. No goal is strictly for strength/muscle mass. As you correctly suggest if i eat right, workout right, then i can gain more muscle than fat. Furthermore, just by the T/E action itself according to the studies, i will cut the fat, if i keep the ratios in check on the diet.

    "Test Enan 500MG 12-14 weeks"

    2 shots weekly Mon & Fri.

    With the half life longer, spreading out the shot by one day. Most cycles that i've read do M/Thurs.

    Can these shots be extended even longer (7-10 days) without losing the anabolic/androgenic action of the T/E?

    By the time it kicks in i will be in the 3rd week, so i want to possibly extend cycle from 12 to 16 weeks.

    Started at 214LB Wednesday on weigh in post workout - night of 1st shot.

    Sunday weigh in came in at 223LB. So far not feeling anything. 'Revved up and looking forward to it though.'

    2nd shot tomorrow

    Training 3 days a week - 2 body parts each workout

    All workouts are high intensity
    4 sets 1-2 warm for each exercise
    Repetitions are 4-12 in a pyramid approach.

    Looking to add weight gainers on top protein as i progress. Want to stay lean as possible with clean diet, while looking to yield max strength and muscle mass.

    How tall are you?

    I'm just finishing up my first test cycle, and love it!

    My weight went from 215 to 240 (and still going up!)

    I went from benching 275 x 1 to 275 x 5-6.
    Squats went from 315 x 5 to 315 x 15.
    Deads went from 315 x 8 to 315 x 15.

    I'd suggest do strength training for all your BIG 3 lifts for the first 8 weeks and then start alternating between strength weeks and hypertrophy weeks for the remainder of the cycle.

    GL, you're going to love it! Make sure you EAT, EAT, EAT!!!! I was kind of hesitant about how much I should eat. I'm very carb sensitive and put on weight very easily so I didn't want to put on fat, I didn't see nearly the amount of gains I wanted to in the first 7 weeks and then I finally changed up my diet and the gains started coming like nuts. Diet is SOOO key.

    Gotta get at least 300g of complex carbs and 250g-350g of protein a day.

    Best of luck!

    You won't notice a jump start in your weight lifting until the 3rd-5th week. After then, every week you should be putting on strength.

    If you're really worried about putting on a lot of fat, do 30 minutes of low intensity cardio after each of your workouts.

    I see you're a vegetarian. Just curious what your diet looks like? I couldn't imagine ever making it to 200lbs if I didn't eat meat.

    - Whey Protein Shake Isolate and concentrated mixed up from time to time with 1-2 cups of skim milk (30-40 Grams protein)
    - Muffin occasionally

    - FYI will start adding 1tbsp of flax seed oil in morning (130 Calories)
    -Adding Muscle milk weight gainer this coming week to0 increase the calories/complex carbs/protein levels (4 scoops = 1050+ calories & 53 grams of protein)

    LUNCH

    Question 2nd Injection completed: after pullout 1-2 minutes of bleeding WHY?
    T/E injected into left glute 1cc @250mg, almost on the lateral side with 22 Gauge 1-1/2" needle. I drew imaginary lines, but came too much on the lateral side. When I injected i made typical newbie mistakes. *I did not pull skin. When i pushed in there was pain, unlike my first shot. *Forgot to aspirate. Last time needle went in like butter, this time when about 1/2" needle was still visible, i had to push a little. On the last push i may have pushed off the 90 degree trajectory evident in my first clean shot. I injected nice and slowly. On the pull, may have done too fast - is when the bleeding started fast and furious.

    DID I LOSE BLOOD OR ALL THE TEST? I CLEANED WITH TWO ADDITIONAL SWABS AFTER THE FIRST TWO - THEY ALSO GOT SOAKED ... DID NOT FEEL ANY OIL?

    At the injection site 90 minutes later a small 1/4 to 1/2" bump/swelling is felt with slightly visible redness.

    IS THIS NORMAL AFTER BLEEDING FROM INJECTION SITE?

    Thumbs up 3rd shot - up 14lb - leg strength ^ significant
    3rd shot completed Thursday night, right glute with no difficulty or any bleeding. Mild persistent pain for 2 days after, nothing to hinder workouts however.

    Left glute from 2nd shot is slightly bruised from improper technique last monday nov 29. Z technique helped with 3rd shot.

    So far noticeable bloat and pumps during and after workout especially shoulder/chest area. After ingestion of meals abdominal area uncomfortable for hours due to bloating.

    Workout wise focus is on compound exercises with super sets i.e. bi's/tri's, chest/legs, back/shoulders

    4 Sets with pyramid scheme for reps 8 6 4. (Warm ups are not counted)

    Body weight is up to 226lb from 212-214 from the first injection. (measured @same time each week after workouts). Noticeable deviation up to +_5lb.

    Significant strength is seen in the squat leg press 18*45lb plates for 6-8 reps with full reps. Full reps meaning touching metal to metal. Same is done with leg press, & below the parallel level for squats.

    Recovery is also starting to be noticeable, prior to T/E administration after leg day recovery would take up to 5-6 days, now good to go the next day or two. The T/E should really start kicking in the next two weeks as per colleagues here. So looking forward to that, and will keep the gang here posted on my progress, which is a great source of info and help.

    Question Human grade test vs. UG labs test
    By the way mentioned my pumps and excessive bloat to a friend, who has dozen of cycles under his belt over the last 15+ years (recommended stacking with Eq to reduce bloating).

    Tells me the "excessive bloating" 1 week after first shot may be due to human grade test and fresh receptors, this being my first cycle.

    Are UG labs usually under dosed on a relative basis mg for mg?

    I think that would fully depend on the UG. I mean if they are a quality lab it seems reasonable to assume that they can get their dosing correct and would choose to considering how many people home brew with success it doesn't seem like that much of a stretch to assume that a quality ugl can and does accurately dose to with a reasonable variation.

    I've been getting bloat running dbol with test and RJH has talked all over these forums for a while about water retention most often being a result of the diet and I'm starting to understand what he's talking about I first thought I would try to combat my bloat by raising my aromasin dose to blast more estrogen but then with his diet advice in mind I decided to first start with diet tweaks and I've found that I'm reducing the bloat by playing with my diet. The timing of my carb intake and what I eat with the carbs seems to be effecting me as does the timing of my water intake. I lowered the carbs a bit and started cycling them a little differently brought up the protein and started playing with when I take in fluids and low and fucken behold I've been noticing my water retention going down especially in my face major changes there in just a few days of playing with my diet so thanks RJH for getting me to think about it that way.

    ...I decided to first start with diet tweaks and I've found that I'm reducing the bloat by playing with my diet.
    As i am only going into my second full week (4th injection tonight), the bloating is likely to exacerbate, at times uncomfortable in the abdominal region. For that reason, i cut down on the weight gainer shakes in 1/2 on off days and stick to just protein shakes. I will definitely have a read up on RJH and see where i can tweak my diet. Tx bro!

    4th shot [left glute] completed with very mild bleeding upon pullout. Still a little shaky when pin in and trying to stay put to inject slowly.

    On another note, i see 1ml in the ampules exactly. Upon pull out into syringe, after bubbles/air have been removed -- seeing average .8ML. So i am really only getting 400mg of T/E weekly instead of the 500mg. Pretty common?

    2 full weeks tonight (Wed Dec 8) since 1st injection & starting to feel it. With very mild signs of acne the other day (dry skin generally and winter weather helping, however since peak levels are coming in the next 2 weeks, we'll see). In teen years, acne was very bad... i mean very bad. Where the scarring has only totally healed in my mid 20s. I was still on cycles of Accutane in my early 20s.

    Trained Bi's & Chest Tuesday night. 90minutes.

    Massive pumps are starting to occur. Losing flexibility fast as shoulders/chest area expand rapidly upon workout. Chest/shoulders have always been my strong areas. To top it off for the first time my arms are in sync in terms of the pump and early onset of growth. Due to prior injuries in shoulders/arms, had lost contraction ability in right muscle altogether which came back after a 4-5 year hiatus. I am making the assumption T/E is working at a deeper physiological level by releasing GH to repair the damage done over the years.

    Focus is on compound exercises in a pyramid scheme. 3RM are attempted on all exercises to gauge strength. Have always done 1-3RM to see where i am in terms of training/strength.

    Left & right bicep each have increased in girth (flexed) by 3/4"

    Left Arm @17" -- right on the money
    Right 16" 3/8s

    Weight 229-232LB

    Legs and Triceps trained Thursday night.

    Bloating is calming down a little -- to a degree where it is comfortable now. After looking into it - fairly heavy bloating initially after first few shots, some foods at the dinner table were the culprit. Plus to minimize bloating, at the end of each exercise doing a set or two of 10-15 reps - that is helping. Cardiovascular exercise last week or so -- done minimally.

    So far progress in leg strength is primarily on a recuperation basis. Next few weeks should tell the tale, as i do the same exercises by keeping a close count on the reps, weight, & how easily they are done.

    Machine squats 540lb for 6 full reps (same amount of weight was done prior, but recovery no!)
    That was the key gauge in the workout, the rest of the exercises were high intensity. Right knee tendon tear is keeping me off the free weight squats for now. Two years ago looked to get surgery, orthopedic surgeon advised training at the gym post his examination of the quadricep muscles and saw no significant signs of atrophy. For now machine squats are my only options to stabilize the muscle, as i can easily cause further underlying damage to the tendons/ligaments, because the right leg gives out from time to time & is unstable/shaky on the way up & down. With machine exercises the moves are more closely kept in check.

    Triceps - close grip bench (free weight) 4 reps 210lb

    On a side note, a few more friends are starting to notice the difference. After the first 2 injections, visible bloat led a few to believe something was underway.

    Next few weeks (or may wait into the end of the cycle), I am looking closely at the skin for acne or any signs of gyno as T/E threshold peaks. Closer examination primarily at the superficial level to see if i should add Dbol for about 6 weeks to really kick it up a noche or two - up to 30-40mg daily. I am not afraid of a little acne, however gyno is another story (for which i have Nolvadex (10mg) on hand).

    Question 5th injection - BACK PAIN?????? T/E causing this?
    5th injection Right-Glute completed 2:45am Dec 12, 2010 - a little bleeding for a few minutes - a drop every 30 seconds or so.

    FYI: IMI is exactly 3 days apart not set days.

    At the physiological level - i am definitely starting to feel it. On the face i see slight acne (not white heads) and redness. No topical treatments necessary yet, may pick up something from shoppers though just as a precaution (got topical Vit A on hand different strengths also).

    The pumps are amazing. Upon starting workout and few sets later, i feel like a Mack truck literally. I can push & push without getting tired at all.



    Saturday evening trained Back & Shoulders. Prior to workout 1 Aspirin (325mg), Caffeine (200mg), and Ephedrine (8mg) ingested.

    SHOULDERS
    Military press 145lb 8*10 no problem. I can push higher, however i want the muscle and the body to assimilate to progressive strength. Btw, that strength is not atypical on this cycle. I been doing that for years just on Creatine/Glutamine cycles, albeit the pumps.

    Upright rows 145lb 8-10 (weight not increased due to lower back pain... read below)

    Shrugs 3*45 + 25 (back problem started into 1 hour of training)

    BACK
    T-bar (supersetted with military presses) 3*45lb for 8-10reps

    Dumbbell rows 125lb *6-8 reps no problem. With CM/Glu have done 160lb single hand rows. So looking for that break through in that respect before i count any progress on T/E.

    Slight problem is indicated on the lower back. I am not sure if it is pumps or pain from leg day. This is 2 weeks consecutive post leg workout (started using belt Mon for heavy compound exercises). I am not sure the lack of the belt is to blame, as i am not doing more weight. Heavy squats/deadlifts did without belt - no problems. However, the lower back pain is something new. Near completion even holding 25lb dumbbells for front raises causes excruciating pain in the back. I've never had that in all my years of training, even on CM/Glu cycles. For that reason could not do dead lifts today. Btw my technique is generally very strict, otherwise the same lifts mentioned above, i could easily do more. Any opinions?

    Angry Usage of public facilities and general etiquette
    If a weight is sitting on the floor left by someone else [after careful observation to see if someone is using it], i pick that up first as a lot of people fail to put back their weights generally. I figured kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Clean up the weights since i am using that specific weight, and do my routine.

    Anyways, as I was doing dumbbell rows (125lb), a gentlemen comes up to me, 'tells me that its his weight after i had done 2 sets already', because he had used that 10-15 minutes prior. I am not an easily agitated guy, however that really got my blood boiling. The same gym has been my second home since late teens, when newbies come in and try to show who's boss, that is something else. I told him he could either pick up the other 125lb or just share with me, but no. 'It's his weight and he had to have that dumbbell'.

    FYI Body weight is surpassing 232-234lb (^18-20lb since 1st IMI). I am also increasing protein intake on training days, as the bodies needs increase over the coming weeks.

    I may easily hit 247-250 at the current rate IMO in the coming weeks at this rate.

    Monday night 90 minute Chest & Bi workout

    CHEST
    Flat Bench (Free weight) 225lb*7 Reps

    Once this level (225lb*7) is breached i will have broken my plateau from Creatine/Glu cycles. Used to be able to do 8 reps for 225lb. Should happen by next week. Goal is to able bench press 295lb+ (free weight) in the next 8 weeks for 1RM.

    Decline (Free weight) 225lb*6

    Incline (Smith Machine) 245lb )8-10

    Volume is reduced to 2-3 hard sets, not counting warmups. On heavy compound days, not supersetting i.e. bench press with bicep curl etc.

    BI
    Barbell curl 120lb *4-6.
    17" and 16"3/8 Left & Right Bicep girth (flexed). Goal is for 18.5" bi's by completion of cycle. On a relative basis bi's are my weakness in terms of muscle fullness akin to bench strength weakness (noted a few times in my logs). These two areas are of utmost focus, however other muscle groups will not be neglected and get just as much attention. By setting goals, i have something to look forward, which i have always done in the past. Goals are not to supersede anyone else or anything, but strictly in gauging my own peak performance.

    Hammer Dumbbell curls 2 sets 70lb*5each & 3sets 50lb * 7-8each

    Preacher curls 85*6-8lb
    Left elbow pain - weight kept to minimal for muscle mass focus & pump as opposed to working on strength/power. Pumps are enormous. Elbow pain comes and goes for a few years now, not due to T/E. As i've noted before i am only reaching same levels as i would at peak levels of Creatine/Glu cycles where i always typically level out after 15-25lb gain in 8 weeks.

    No cardio lately due to time limitations.

    Some anomalies to be noted.
    Usually for neck pain relief and stiffness, cracking is done numerous times a day which provides significant comfort. For the past 2 weeks, not able to crack as much likely to due to water retention held within the joints/ligaments.

    Wearing socks seeing welts in legs. Definitely holding a lot of water, as deep indents are visible post workout starting yesterday for the first time. Weight is 233-237lb.

    Due to rapid gain of weight, I also find myself sometimes trying to catch a breath sometimes (especially after weight gainer/protein shakes post workout-- add to that a few liters of water). Out of breath - albeit for a short period of time, but it is still something to be noted. Normally, i would be able to go on the Stairmaster for an hour without break. The last i tried 2 weeks back, due to excruciating back pain that day could only due 20m (post heavy leg workout). Cardiovascular is still there however, maybe slightly mitigated. Always trade- offs. That's a given and to be expected. Can't have both. Aim is for max muscle mass & strength.

    Size 34 pants are starting to be snug. Abdominal area bloat is clearly visible.

    Smile Exactly 3 weeks on cycle Dec 16-2010 ^22lb +
    Dec 16, 2010 2:59am 6th injection left glute completed successfully

    On a good note no major signs of acne, slight red heads here and there (very mild). Good news because of what i went through in my teenage years, when hormones were on over-drive. Accordingly, i was more afraid of that than anything else, & the corresponding scarring that comes along with it. So far so good. Nothing topical is being used.

    Blood pressure 123/63/ 85 heartbeat (that is around the average of 3 tests. Systolic pressure was a little low to norm when measured against prior numbers. Nothing to be alarmed about, as i figured it would be shooting through the roof with the rapid gain of weight). Prior to commencement of cycle cut out any extraneous salts, sugars, except for the occasional drop of brown sugar in oatmeal, coffee, or/and tea.

    Wed evening trained Back & Shoulders

    Prior to workout 1ASA 325MG & 1 8MG Ephedrine pill - to reduce bloating.

    25minute stair-master (Interval 3-5 level)
    A definite difference is noted in cardiovascular capacity due to the rapid gain of body weight. Completed prior to weight training to see present performance.

    After cardio, felt a little off in training.

    BACK
    Dead-lifts (Free weights)
    275lb*10 (easy)
    325lb*7
    345lb*5

    Goal in 8 weeks 445lb*1RM

    Machine Rows
    4plates*45lb + 10lb for 4-5 reps each side (hard)
    3*45+10lb 8-10 easy (strict form)


    SHOULDERS
    Military Press
    145lb 10 reps easy
    165lb*4-5

    By the way mentioning those exercises that can be measured against in the coming weeks to see progress in terms of lifts, hence the detail. Other exercises are of mi-nute importance and only form part of the completion process for a particular body part, as such details on those lifts are negated. The sets/reps are pretty much standard for all exercises in a pyramid approach i.e. 4-5 sets 10 8 6 4 etc. mentioned in prior logs.

    SOME ANOMALIES
    Back pain is starting to mitigate substantially. Because of the fear of further back pain, completed dead lifts first. No problem, except minor. Likely water embedded deep into the tissue, and now spinal fluid retention normalizing.

    Neck crack - able to complete this task. I noticed the cardio may have aided, as i got rid of some water while stepping.

    Heart beat average during cardio 148-156 per minute. A little above average, likely to due to increased pressure on heart to due to increased body weight.

    The explanation following the noted anomalies are my hypothesis, there may be other physiological factors involved compounded by extraneous activities that involve diet, training, and genetic predisposition i.e. accelerated heart rate etc.

    Flexibility, is starting to come back after a few sessions where i.e touching toes, putting on socks was difficult -- post workout. Generally, very flexible. Fascia tissue stretching has always aided growth, free from injury, recovery, and strength. I want to be able to remain somewhat flexible, so routinely stretching is completed.

    Overall everything is coming along nicely,
    Gaining about a 1/4" on arms weekly.

    Forget weigh-in post workout. It's leveling out however, i've noted.
