Were at the end of week 2 and here are some pre-cycle poundages and then the current lifts.
225x5 now 275x5 (have done 315x3, but with alot of help on the 3rd)
Seated Military Press
185x5 now 225x5
275x5 above parallel now 315x5 deep
Really no recent point of reference since I haven't done these in 8months but now I'm using 225x5
Knowing the strength imbalances I have with legs and back, I figured a solid 5x5 program with 3x a week squats would help get my core strength up. And it has worked perfectly so far.
Things I've noticed with the training:
My bench seems like the lift where the most dramatic gains are coming in, I know the numbers may sound unbelieveable but these numbers are the gods honest truth. I wish that my squat and deadlift numbers would shoot up like that. Anyway I'll take it.
What I've noticed about the cycle:
Well not getting much side effect info on the tren-250 I didn't know it could effect blood pressure so much. Well the first week my pressure was so high that i almost quit the cycle. So I researched blood pressure supps and I've been taking about 3000mg of hawthorne berry and 300mgs of coq10 and believe it or not my blood pressure seems better than precycle and i have not had anymore issues.
As far as body composition:
I started with a lean bulk type diet where I cycled my carbs higher on my workout days and lighter on non workout days and I felt great at first, then I screwed up big time and ate junk the whole second week. I can tell that in that weeks time I'm holding on to some xtra fat. Now the first week with the cycled carbs my strength was still going up but I was down a pound or so. Now I'm up 8lbs (from 2weeks ago).
So How do I remedy problem:
I love to cook and when I prepare my own meals I tend to stay on track indefinitely, but the second I don't go grocery shopping and is kinda forced to eat out, all hell breaks loose. lol.
I do notice increased fullness and prolonged pumped. Just started experiencing back pumps but only after squats.

Here's how my workouts looked this week, actually this is the first week of the 5x5 program and the second of the cycle the first week I did alot of baseline stuff to get a idea where i was at.
365x2 (too heavy to do correctly)
315x5 (needed help to finish 5th so it was too heavy for this early in the program)
Seated Military Press
245x3 (again too heavy but i had to try it)
315x3 (2 jumped off me like 225 and the last one felt like somebody put 4 more 45's on the bar at the top
Now at the gym i attend 190 is the stack on the pressdown machine and it's hard but not hell, but on the lat pulldown machine 120 feels heavier than 190 on the pressdown machine so i'll note which machine a use to keep confusion down on the fluxation of poundages.
Palms up tricep pressdown
Hanging leg raises
It's funny to watch peoples expressions when a damn near 300lb dude jumps up and does hanging leg raises. If only my damn abs were as ripped as my form on hanging leg raises, but that's my diet.
Hammer strength ab machine
Side crunches on hyperextention machine
3x10-12 per side
Went about the same except no millitary press Deadlifts and assistance work was some bicep work and more abs.Also flat bench was exchanged by inclines
Workout similar to monday
Incline Bench Press
245x3 (felt i could have eeked out 2more but my form was breaking so it was too heavy to get benefit from)
315x2 (got carried away)
I felt kinda tired this day but overall it still was a good day.
Well today sucked two ways the first was i felt great and could get to the gym untill it was almost about to close and second, I was approaching new pr's with shortened rest periods. So if I could have gotten a little more rest in between sets, who knows but it's ok.
Hell it's Midnight where i'm at and I'm exhausted so I'll finish more information on the log tommorrow.
Thanks for all that are interested.
