Gyno has for the most part cleared up (nipples no longer sore or itchy).
Upped water intake today got the gallon into me and it seems to have reduced my BP. I haven't checked it but yesterday I could actually "feel" it. Tonight I'll be working chest/back/shoulders. I'll let everyone know how it went and what i did.

Okay gyno is totally gone and I'm dropping the nolva back to 10mgs per day. I still haven't done my weigh in but using the mirror as a judge I'm definately more full and larger.
My skin is becoming increasingly oily to the point where an hour after washing my face it's visibly oily again but so far I'm keeping it under control with no acne outbreaks yet.
As for training the pumps have been amazing! And my poundages continue to increase rapidly. My squat is now up from 210 x 20 to 225 x 28 reps in the past week alone. Still have a ways to go to get back to my pre-surgery levels but by the time the test kicks in I should be up to par again.
Warning to all who have not done their first cycle....be prepared to EAT!!!! It's very easy to take gear and do your workouts but eating and drinking enough takes alot of dedication and time. That'll be your true test, trust me on that. Till next time......
Keep life HEAVY!

I would continue using the nolva for the remainder of the cycle. Or you could switch to using letro or arimidex
09-20-2004 01:32 PM
I agree with Size personally I would switch the Adex but any of them would do. Sounds like the cycle is going well keep up the good work and eat, eat, eat, clean food that is

Thanks for the tips guys. I'll see if I can get some letro perhaps. What about Proviron? Just a thought that occured to me and the stuff is cheap.
09-20-2004 02:12 PM
Proviron is great. If you can get it, I would use it.
09-20-2004 02:17 PM
Thanks size. I'll probably order some and give it a shot. It'll take a couple of weeks to get here so I'll stick to nolva in the meantime. Thanks again.
Incidentally to those who are following along. The water retaining effects of the dbol have hit big time. My quads don't fit into my jeans anymore lol. Muscles in my quads, lower back, and forearms feel tight all day long, almost pumped. It's a great feeling!

Ok not a lot to report in terms of the cycle. My personal life took a real turn for **** so my diet/training have been hell this week. I'm trying to pay up for the difference in appetite by upping my intake of protein powder, efa's and the like. Hopefully the emotional turmoil will be over this weekend and I'll be able to get myself back on track. Wish me luck guys!

Okay things have been going great. Hit a vein on my last injection....curious sensation, knew I hit something just didn't realize what until I removed the needle.....squirt!
Bodyweight has began to climb and weights in the gym are out of this world. I put on more weight on most exercises and still get more reps than i did last time. Awesome!!
Bodyweight is now up to 184 pounds.....that's a ten pound increase so far.
10-06-2004 02:45 PM
Just as a side note I've been using squats as my reference exercise all along so here's today's numbers:
Squat previous weight 225 x 28 (rest-paused)
today 265 x 20 (rest-paused)

Thanks guys. I have to admit that I went into this with the "lets just see" attitude but it has been awesome. After the first couple of weeks you look, feel and actually act different than before. Confidence soars.......I think I'm loving it too much.
10-06-2004 05:32 PM
Exactly. I knew I hit something more solid than just the muscle but it didn't really hurt so I aspirated and then injected. When you remove the pin you find out what you actually hit when the blood squirts out behind the needle. lol

Things have been going pretty well. Up another 2 pounds bodyweight. It's funny how people look and react differently to me now. I have been getting many compliments about my increased muscularity from ladies where i work.
Eating is my biggest obsticle every day.....i just don't have a huge appetite so I force myself for every gram of protein. Oh well, I'm managing. Saturday is squat day again.....I'll give an update on poundage increase then.

Okay, last nights inject was horrible. Hurt like a bitch and ached for about 2 hours after the shot! It was a delt shot so I suppose I may have hit something. In any event it's fine today so no harm done.
Today was squat day again but did things a little differently. I opened up with 305 x 6 and then did 265 for 23 reps. I got fewer reps obviously because of the heavy work that was done before hand.
My diet has been admittedly crappy lately as I"ve been in meetings most of the last couple of days making it nearly impossible to keep up with the meal schedule. Next week things get back to "normal".

Okay, I decided to up the testosterone to 750mgs per week. I know everyone will recommend against it but I haven't had any negative sides and was curious to see what difference it would make. We'll see.
Now up to 188 pounds bodyweight, that's a 14 pound gain so far....and the cycles not over!!! Now the true test will be post cycle to see how much I can actually hold on to. My PCT will consist of 3g of trib a day, Nolva, and I'm thinking of adding some phosphatidylserine in there to blunt cortisol a little. I couldn't manage to get any HCG so I decided I had better get some trib in the hopes that it will help kick the boys back into function.
11-06-2004 10:01 PM
190 pounds!! The gains are coming on strong again. Later this week I'll post how my training has changed so people can get an idea of how it was adjusted along the way.
11-07-2004 02:39 PM
Nice thread. Thanks for keeping us up to date.
