Totally Fu*kin awsome workout!!! So jacked today! I was sore all overe from the weekend workouts - feel like I'm really making some progress. getting lots more comments from people that i look "buff" or have been working out. My belly fat has increased - not a great thing to note but it's still relatively under control. i go for Hydrostatic underwater BF testing in a week.
Weight this past few days 214-217 - varies daily. Tonite i pin test C then not again till Friday - start the dbol up again next week. nipps are doing well - I'll be interested to see what happens when i restart the dbol. Been doing the Adex .5ml ed.
Later dudes - have a good one!

Diet not too good - went for a blood test so started off with a 12 hour fast - then had all kinds of wierd shit - brown rice sushi, grilled salmon, sweet pototo, steak, broccoli, etc. think it didn't add up to 4500Cals. BTW weighed in w/o food this am at 211.

More hair on face & back - WTF?
Hard nipps (no pain (ever), no itch (for weeks now)
Later guys - have a good weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey dudes, nasty weekend - woke up on Sat feeling woozie/hung over. i smoked some pot on Fri nite and me & the mrs did the wild thing til early in the am - but whoa - i felt TOTALLY spent. finally hit a wall - muscles and energy STRONG as hell but the joints all be sore now - So i went to the gym, did a coupla sets of incline db presses and took off. my whole body was sore, back, joints, legs, etc. (hope it wasn't the late night cardio - that would be depressing.... Anyways took 2 days off and feelin good again today. Back on the dbol for the next 4 weeks, 2 mo for the test. doing the adex .5 ed. Got plenty of back & shoulder acne now - very annoying.
Took 2 days off - so took off Sat & sun. Feeling pretty good today - had an awsome shoulder workout - delts were screamin! love that feeling of the burn like you can feel the individual muscle fibers.
Diet was rough over the weekend - eating out, not enouf cals - weight down to 212. I am going to lift really hard in the next 2 weeks - hoping to burn some of the fat I gained and build solid muscle - got a BF test scheduled for tomorrow. Yippee - can't wait - altho it's not going to be lean by any means - but nice to have a datum.

Apologies for no posts last week - busy as heck at work. Workouts were good - great infact - feeling strong as a bull.
It's sunday am and today I'm not at the gym! I have decided to take the day off. had a long conversation yesterday w/ a really buff dude about overtraining so i'm going totake a day off here and there. Plus my joints are still sore a bit. i think that my next cycle will incllude deca for all that i've read about it's benefit for sore joints. having said that my glutes and quads (muscles) are totally recovered from thursday's gnarly workout. My one regret about getting serious about lifting later in life is that my joints can't keep up with the muscles, and the one thing I really want to avoid is joit injury. So to all you young bucks - I say "good for u! getting into it early - take care of your joints so you can still lift wen yor MY age! LOL
Did the circuit with te big gys at the gym - 6 exercises - very aerobic little or no rest between sets- veryintense and really got me jacked.
incline/flat bench (5% incline)
Wide grip pulldown
hammerstrength decline press
10x90;5sets - 10x145
one arm row
I was ready for more but the trainer who wqas leading the circuit said I would be tearing up muscle if I did more exercises :-( i was a little sorry i didn't go heavier cause I def could have added 20# to everyything.:dumbbells
I think some of that is the dbol - I feel hella strong now - be interesting to see if my strength goes down in a coupla weeks as this shit leavesmy system.
Sides now: I've had a few headaches (don't know if that's a side or it's just me stressing about work and the economy) My acne is fairing up - oily skin - wife has been very nice to scub my back & shoulders. Nuts still tiny; pecker is doing well tho - Tons of libido - just like my 20's hahahaha - put the wood to the ol lady twice in one nite! not bad after2 kids & 14 years! LOL Nipps are doing well - nothing unusual - a little sensitive but not like the beginning. I am definately looking "full" getting lots of comments - even from strangers who didn't know me before...:heelclick2:I am looking forward to the next 5 months and cutting some fat/bloat - can't really see much definition in my triceps for example but that part of my arm is lookin large...
Diet - been much better about that. :food-snac I am getting closer to 4500 cals. Still in my same pants (33) the thighs are getting very tight but not the waist. Not eating much fruit or white flour; almost no sugar. Made an awsome bread pudding the other night - 9 grain bread, splenda,2eggs, eggwhites, vanilla, cinamon, whiskey(only 1T) a few cut up dried aprocots. i didn't do the macros on it, but very low fat - complex carbs & high protein. Getting tired of the brown rice but still going for that and chicken boobs, lean steak.
So 2 more injections of Vitamin T and that's it. post cycle therapy (pct) coming down the road...
Later dudes - thanks for reading!

Got to sleep in - went to the gym at 9am! what luxury...Nice breakfast of 2C oatmeal; 1C "best of the egg" pasteurized egg whites. i've taken to drinking the egg whites cold and raw - saves lots of time and easier to get down than cooked & fluffy.

Fu*kin awsome workouts - My arms were so pumped after the preachers - also starting to get some nice vascularity - in spite of the bulk! Monday's Chest w/o was amazing too - 24 sets in 35 mins - my chest was SOOOO pumped - really felt great - hope i can achieve that after I'm off the dbol too. Legs are slow coming up - I get a glimpse of them in the mirror and think "damn - I could use some more size there!"
Weight this past few days 217. Last test C was Friday - the dbol seems to be giving me these awsome pumps - downside - also getting painful pumps in my lower back w/o even doing deads. I injured it a month ago, but I think this is related to the dbol. Been doing the Adex .5ml ed.
Later dudes - have a good one!

take it easy on the ADex as more of the Test clears the system, when are you dropping the D-Bol??... don't want to be killing the Estrogen too much coming into/during PCT

I'm still at .5 w/ the adex - maybe i should taper that off - I've no gyno symptoms at all now - nipps are totally back to normal (I actually miss the little bullets- got used to them...LOL) i'm also doing 1 pump of aifm on ea arm a day too - maybe over kill?
i think so, if you have aifm I would stick with that for now... maybe 2 pumps ED

i wish i could have chimed in more, but i have been getting fucked royally by school work/test prep/working and i have no time... with that being said back to work on the 15 page paper due Thursday
No worries, dude - i appreciate the feedback whenever you give it. It's been a great cycle so far...can't wait for #2 in April - ;-)
OK dudes - I'm swole bigtime- put on an old teeshirt this am to wear under a sweater - tite as hell - i look like a real muscle head - Hahahahaha This week & next: dbol only -so in 2 weeks I'll see what i really look like after all the water weight starts to leave my body. Def have to get some pics this weekend at the height of my girth! I'm hoping all that stuff around my waist is water weight but somehow i don't think so.....LOL Just got a new pair of jeans with a "comfort cut" in the thighs - no mo strait leg levis for me....:-(
Had a great w/o this am
lunges w/overhead bb press
6 sets 8-10x40lbs ea leg (whoa - that's 100-120! whew!)

* felt a great pump in my quads after these!
40 mins cardio @ 125 BPM
Test is best in test.
- Rep Power
Had a great chest/back workout Sat and did legs/shoulders today. Still feeling strong as an ox - my knees are starting to get real sore - maybe I'm puching too much weight - dunno. The test doesn't improve the joints - that's for sure! So i'm being a bit more conservative with my lifts than I'd like. One mo week of dbol only. Bacne is getting worse - must be the dbol - so I went to a tanning place today and will go 2x a week. Hoping that will help clear it up. Nuts are still tiny - looking forward to the post cycle therapy (pct). Libido is down considerably w/o the test - that sucks. i think my wife was getting used to it!
So i think I'm at my max for this cycle - 217 almost everyday for a week or so. Def gained some Fat around my waist - don't much like that - but I'm going to try to keep the cals up so I don't loose my gains. I gained 29 lbs in 3 month - not bad for an old dog. Here are a few progress pics - going to take some measurements (when i can find the paper I wrote the "before" down on!)
interresting . looks like you made some solid gains. ill be interrested to see hoe much you keep after post cycle therapy (pct). i take it you didnt use Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) throughtout the cycle. PCt sucks bro,
it looks like you have put in your work and its paid off......27 lbs is quite a gain
Had a great hammie/bi/tri workout yesterday - couldn't believe how pumped I felt. my bi's went from 15 1/2 to 17 on this cycle - that's cold - don't know what the difference is pumped.
After mon workout - got a HUGE headache - started slow and was a fvcker by the end of the day. Don't know if that's related to test withdrawl or just stress but thot I'd jot it down. I took 4 advil at 9pm and did 50 mins of cardio - it went away. i have noticed that i'm a bit moody and glum - def don't have the feeling of "well-being" associated with test. My nuts seem to be shrinking further this week - reminds me of when i went swimming in cold lakes as a boy - SHRINKAGE! I am loking forward to next week and post cycle therapy (pct) to get this reversed.
Killed my shoulders today - felt awsome
6 sets military w barbell
6 sets military incline w/ dumbells
6 sets front & back FLEX machine overhead press
4 drop sets 10,8,8 lat raises
Well.... day 2 of Camp Clomid. Nolva is my camp counselor so i think I'm in good hands. i warned my wife i might be emotional. She's rented Steel Magnolias, Tearms of Endearment and The Way We Were, plus a big box of kleenex.....LOL - just kidding
So far, so good - I quit the Dbol Friday and had a decent Trap, Shrug workout w/ cardio.
Today went in for the usual Circuit with the boys - could REALLY feel that the vitamin T has left the station. I did well and kept up w/ everybody - but I was leading the pack lifting 20% more than the others and today i looked at the heavy weights and thot, "maybe I'll just stick with what everyone else is doing." Plus and most interesting - I've lost the super human recovery which allowed me to workout 7 days a week. My knees are mega sore from Thursday's leg w/o - with Vitamin T or dbol that would be long gong by now. And interestingly - it's more the joints and not the muscles.
I weighed in at 214 today - down from my peak or 217 - still normal - trying to keep my diet low in fat and concentrate on the complex carbs. Going to go out and buy a boatload of fish this weekend and cut back on the beef.
Acne on my back is still bugging me although seems to be diminishing - I started Tanning - Thanks for the suggestion Gringo- been 2 x and will go again today. i am hopeful that will help. Another wierd development - I seem to be Mr. Fungus right now - don't know if this is related but I'm not usually sensitive to it and now i've got jock itch, athletes foot and fungal skin stuff! Whoa! So just spent $50 on various preparations - hope to knock it out myself w/o going to the doc. Had a nice workout - noticed that I didn't get the amazing pump like with the d-bol.
Six sets of :
One arm rows 10 x 40
Tbar rows 10 x 70
Wide Grip Pulldowns 10 x 120,130,140,150,160,170

Overhead Tri cable extensions 5 sets 6 x 100
No real Tri pump - could have done more but ran out of time.
Still taking the No Explode before workouts - Liv 5.2 & Milk Thistle. Plus lots of vitamins, fish oil, glucosamine chondroitin, Saw palmetto, Flinstones Vitamins(yeah my kids won't eat em no mo and i have about 500 left! Hahahaha
Later Bros! Stay Strong. Lift Big. Live Large!
definite size gains, nicely done.
I looks like you are holding some water.... you'll look leaner when that comes off.
- Rep Power
great job! Huge gains in the arms! I use panoxyl body wash for my acne and it gets rid of it in a hurry, it really dries the skin though.
had a great workout this am - did arms - one of my favs. Lifted some good weight, got in a lotta sets. but didn't get the arm swelling pump I was hoping for - guess that is because I 'm not on the dbol - or I didn't take my No Explode this am. I did that all on purpose to see what i am like 100***37; natty (okay still prolly don't have the test up to full production yet - it's only been a week on PCT.) I'm DOWN to 211 now - so the water is definately leaving the body. Starting to see a bit of definition and my belly seems a little bit flatter - so all that's good.
Dropsets standing curls w/ EZ bar
70x10;60x10;50x10;40x10 - two of these
80x8;70x8;60x8;50x8 - two of these
lying skull crushers
15 x 80;10x80;10x80
10x70 (4 sets)
Incline seated hammer curls
Cable pressdowns (Bar)
12 x 140 12 x 140
One armed cable kickbacks
4 sets 8x30
D12345 - thanks for the referral - got to try that! don't know when the acre will clear up since I'm still screwwing with my hormones due to the clomid/Nolva...

I find that many times my acne gets worse during post cycle therapy (pct) and clears up a little when I get about 2 weeks out of post cycle therapy (pct)...
Also, I would think about cutting down on your volume a little bit. I have always been a big volume guy but have found recently that I don't need anywhere near as much as I thought. post cycle therapy (pct) is a very fragile time for the body and keeping the same volume as when "on" can be somewhat detrimental to recovery. I would train with less volume but the same intensity and really pump it out hard for those sets.
Hey thanks man - I'm losing some water bloat now so starting to see some definition again. Gotta say I love doing tris - esp decline skullcrushers! LOL

12-21-2008, 07:44 PM
- been caught up w/ the xmas rush - not doing shopping just trying to get stuff done for work b4 I take off for 10 days. Still got some great workouts in. Feeling good - eating 2500 cals a day now - down to 209 today and feeling good. pants that were tite at the waist fit good again. Found out the "fungus" wasn't - just dry skin so i got some Steriods!!!! from the skin doc. LOL - just a cream - don't think it wil;l; help with muscles Hahahaha too bad! The dry skin rash came up where my weight belt hits me - so it's something i have to watch when i wear it and get sweaty.
Balls still tiny - guess they are enjoying florida sunshine - hoping they come back soon. Libido hit a new low too (my wife is enjoying a little time off....LOL) Hope that comes back so Mr. Happy gets back in gear. Can't really get good wood ATM. Acne is quieting down - got a scrub Panoxl - works great - also tanning seems to help a lot - plus I look so damn healthy! hahahaha - yeah I just gained 20 lbs and got back from Mexico....LOL
I'm posting some new pics. haven't measured everything in a wile but my Bi's went up to 16.75 and down to 16.5. Started around 15.25. Great chest workout yesterday - good energy, stamina, strength etc. Still not as strong as on Vitamin T
Flat bench DB press
Maxed out at 8 x 80 today
Previos high on Test 6 x 95 so definately lost some super human strength. But I am still happy with the results. prolly started at 8 x 70...
Thanks milk - sounds solid for the next 2-3 weeks.
