  1. Day 62

    Weight: 195.75

    Today's Diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    It's still bodybuilding week so I have no impressive lifts to mention. I did back today and had a great pump. People are contantly asking me what I'm taking and what I'm eating, etc....lol. My weight is shooting up at the rate of almost 1lb/day. This is the first week of my restarting dbol so I'm sure alot of it is water bloat. It isn't showing too bad though. Energy is still great. Libido is ok too.


  2. Damn bro, you're about to hit the 20lbs gain mark. Good ****. Keep it up bro.

  3. Day 66

    Weight: 197

    Today's Diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    Well it's powerlifting week again and I feel up to the task! I did legs today. I got 385 (which I broke the rack week before last with) for 6 reps on my 3rd set. I finished my 4th at 405 for 3 reps. I have to say that my strength is at an all time high right now. The lethargy is realy kicking in now as well. My libido is low too. I realy didn't see that coming. I have been getting a little bit of a temper lately as well. Nothing major but I feel like I could easily go off sometimes.

  4. Day 73

    I have been super busy lately. I've been repelling, hiking, and basicly away from civilization....lol. I just wanted to report that during yesterday's inject into the left glute I hit a vein. I felt it and I must have pushed the pin through it. No blood when I asperated (sp?). Anyhow, when I pulled the pin out blood literaly squirted out for a split second and went all down my leg and all the floor. It was super gross...lol. I hope I didn't lose too much oil in all that shower.

    I also started the clen today. My right nipple has become slightly puffy and itchy. I also have a lump in it. It is def the onset of gyno. I started taking 20mg nolva to treat it today.

    did you hurt your back too?

    a book by Bonnie Prudden called "pain erasure".

    i twisted my back a few times while lifting and was out of commission at one time for a month. i could lift but had to go way down and it hurt getting out of bed.

    The theory is that unless something is broken inside then the pain is caused by muscles deep inside that is locked up tight and won't relax.

    The simple fix is probe with your finger tip and look for points in the area and below that hurt. You can feel pressure on most of the area but it won't actually hurt. When you find a spot that hurts, push your fingers in deeply and hold for 7 seconds and then let go slowly. This apparently causes the muscle that is locked up to let go, alleviating the pain. Treat the cause not the symptom!

    The reason you want to start with the area below and around where you feel the pain is because the muscles start there. So if you have lower back pain, start in your glutes and work your way up.

    Oh yeah, this process hurts like a mother. those points are very sensitive and when you push in, it can bring tears to your eyes but i would rather have tears than be out of action for a month or two.

    Fiddler listed it again above. It sounds strange, but it worked for me.

    Just so everyone knows, I uped the nolva to 40mg/day just to be safe. I can already see a slight decrease in the puffyness.

    This is a techique that is taught to massage therapists as well. (No, not those kind of massage therapists, but the legit ones ) Works very well for headaches also.


    Your cycle is looking good Candle. Keep up the good work bro!

  10. Quads look awesome, Bro.

  11. Day 74

    Weight: 197.5

    Today's Diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    I felt realy tired today. Must have been the long weekend. The gyno is looking a little better. I can still feel a lump under my right nipple though. I'm in the final bodybuilding week so I won't have any heavy lifts to report. The clen is giving me the shakes...lol. I feel pretty alert when I first take it in the morning.

    Here is a recent pic of me so you all can see the bloat...lol. It was taken this weekend while I was repelling.

    I normaly don't but then I'm not too concerned about it. Thanks for looking out though.

    Thanks GG. I try to plan everything to the best of my understanding. I worked out too long with only halfway commiting myself to the task. I try to stay serious now.

  17. Day 81

    Weight: 190

    Todays diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    Today was a great wo. I did DB flat bench with 110 lb DB's. My weight is dropping off quick, but it is only water bloat I hope. I had my fat checked today...12.1%!!! I'll live. So here is the breakdown on the bulk cycle:

    Start weight: 178.5lbs @ 9.2% BF = 162.078lbs LBM
    End weight: 190 @ 12.1% BF = 167.01lbs LBM


    That realy sucks! Only a 5lb gain overall. My lifts are way up though so I have def gotten stronger. I'm thinking that when I had my fat checked, the guy made an error. I'll attach a pic for you to guess what my BF is.

  18. I believe those are veins I see in your abdomen. I don't think you could see veins at 12%. Though I am just guessing.

  19. Definitely look lower than 12%... I would bet my life on that. You're still ripped, don't sweat it

  20. Yeah bro you're definately lower than 12%. With your knowledge, I cant see you only gaining 5 lean lbs on the cycle you just finished...

  21. If the "lump" continues to be a problem, then try aggressive nolvadex treatment.

    I rarely comment on BF% b/c I did testing in a human performance lab and witnessed/tested that bf% cannot simply be judged by looking at someone. People carry fat different and body shape makes some look higher and others lower. With that being said, you are definitely below 12% and I would estimate sub 10%.


    Excellent log and great progress.

  22. Jimmy 4: You are correct. That is veins in my abs. I wasn't even pumped in that pic. I was flexed though.

    The Usual & Big V: I'm not concerned with what level of fat I'm at in regards to appearance. I know I can shred fat easily. It is the fact that I jusy gave my all to a 12 week cycle and if the fat assay is correct I gained very little. However, I strongly feel that the assy was wrong. So I'm not sweating it...

    Size: The "lump" is dissipating slowly. I have 1.5 weeks left of HCG then I'll be stricly of all anabolics. I have been using 40mg Nolva/day for several days now. I can see it is helping. Am I correct in assuming that the "lump" will completely go away?

    Thanks for the encouragement on the log everyone. I'll keep you updated clear up to my next cut in Oct. The updates might be less frequent because all I'm doing is trying to keep what I've gained. I will keep you informed though.

  23. Day 83

    *This is yesterdays data

    Weight: 189

    Todays diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    My strength hasn't left me yet. I got 500 on DLs with very little problem. I look much different though. All the bloat has left me. Since I'm treating gyno with Nolva that is pushing more water out too. If this keeps up I wont have to cut in Oct at all...lol. I might just do another bulk with a better cycle. I'll decide as that time approaches.

    Acne is still somewhat an issue on my back and delts. I treat it twice/day with a good astregent. It helps but the stuff doesn't realy go away. As far as libido goes...what is sex again? I have no peoblem performing when prompted to, but the urge for it on my own has totaly left me.

    I'm leaving out for Panama City Beach in a few hours. I expect that my diet will go to hell somewhat. I travel alot and am used to eating abroad, so it might not be too bad though. I will not be drinking for sure! I don't need any more estrogen issues...lol.

  24. Day 84

    Weight: 185

    Today's Diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    Today at the gym sucked! I was weak as hell. Prob all the bad diet in PC. I was working all day and night every day so I couldn't eat right. When I say work, I mean clubing and modeling...lol. It really is hard sometimes though. OK, whatever... I'm tired so I g2g.

  25. Day 88

    Weight: 186.5

    Todays Diet: Tentative (Traveling)

    Well, after 2 weeks of heavy Nolva all traces of the gyno are gone....whew! Now I'm starting the real PCT. I ended the HCG this past week. I had my 300mg Clomid + 20mg Nolva this morn followed by my last clen dose. It is all homebrewed so it was like a shot of 190 proof...lol. That will def wake you up first thing in the morning.

    My strength has started to decrease somewhat. I have the same initial strength but wear down easier. Not as much stamina. The libido comes and goes. I'm staying rather active to help prompt things into normal working order. The acne is going away nicely, but I still have more than I care for on my back and delts. I have a photoshoot today and I have a bump on each cheek....grrrr. .

    My body composition is changing as well. I'm really losing water and thus size. In most pics I see of myself I look just fine, but I can see a difference.

    Anyhow, I'm off to ATL...

  26. Day 91

    Weight: 183.5

    Todays Diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    Todays wo was pretty good. I had to skip Mon & Tues because I was in ATL and was totaly worn out. I did chest and Tris today. It is heavy week and I was able to push my max with no more trouble than normal.

  27. Day 100

    Weight: 185

    Today's diet: http://www.fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJ...Owner=candle25

    I haven't written in a little while. I've been too busy. My weight seems to have leveled out here. Not too bad. WO's are still going well. I have lost some strength though. Libido is still gone...lol.

  28. Hey Candle, thanks for keeping such a kick ass thread for this cycle. This will definitely help when I'm ready to go. I say next time you go for an all out "dirty" bulk. You cut way too easy (damn you!). Unless you need to keep in certain shape for your modeling. Good discipline throughout.

  29. Thanks bro. I haven't been on the boards much lately. I've been travelling a lot. I did a "dirty" bulk on my first bulk. I hated how I looked...lol. I gained hella weight though. I was up to 18% BF!!! You guessed it though, I have to stay in relitivly good shape because of what I do. So well planned programs all the way.

  30. Day 106

    Weight: 184

    I don't have time to work up my diet right now. I leave for Chicago soon. Things are going well. Libido is still low. Acne is almost gone. I can tell my natural test is building back up. I've had a renewed stamina in the gym lately. I end all AE's today. I'll be starting clen again mon. Here is a recent pic so you can see what I'm looking like now. My BF% was checked at 9.7%. I think that sounds a little high, but oh well...lol.
