  2. Matt porter did an excellent article on when on cycle thy short cut and off "bulk" that took me a few years of competitive bodybuilding to figure out on my own through experience

  3. Very nice read, assuming this was the article.



    I'm still holding at 218. Since I've switched to all Epi at 40mg that's probably my max weight but I think it was good gains since I ate pretty clean. I wanted to make sure I held my weight gained. To me a successful cycle that I gain 10-12 lbs and hold it during PCT is better than gaining 20 them losing 10 during PCT.

    I did chest and back yesterday.

    Half arms and shoulders/traps today.

    Legs tomorrow.

  4. Had a sample of Muscle Marinade, thought it would e a good idea on leg day...

    I've been off NO and pre-workout energy supps (besides AI Motivate) since May. So I thought I would skip the Motivate and take MM for legs and kill it.

    Was doing single leg hip extensions x 8 each leg, Bulgarian squats x8 (35lb dumbbells) and calf raises 225 x20

    On 4 set before calf raises I lost everything I drank this morning. Karbolyn, EPI, everything... Tried to finish 10 minutes later. Got sick again and dizzy this time so called it a day.

    Maybe I just wasnt used to NO or the other emery supps. I'm sure it's good stuff just too much for me on leg day. I will stick with my Motivate.

  5. Took yesterday as my off day.

    Did a total body workout this morning. 1 exercise per body part.

    Weighted 217 down a lb still up 13 total. I have cut back on the carbs this week so that's probably why I lost a few lbs... Definition is showing more no loss of strength, actually still lifting more.

  6. Awesome log so far man. I am going to be monitoring this closely as I may run something similar to this for my second cycle. I like the idea of bridging from SD to epi. Are you going to reduce your calories after you drop the SD and try to cut up before PCT?

  7. I actually read a article that I linked earlier. It talks about cutting on cycle and bulking off cycle... So I'm cutting carbs this last week of Epi for the cycle and will not do a "heavy" bulk during PCT. this way all that gains I have made on cycle where just that, muscle gains not fat or bloat. Sure I won't gain 20lbs on cycle like you read about on here. But I'd rather gain 10lbs of real muscle in a cycle, instead of 20lbs and it be half fat, half muscle. The idea is that I will up my calories in PCT to hold onto gains...

    PCT is actually more important than the cycle. If you don't do PCT right you will lose all your gains. Doing cardio and cutting during PCT is highly unadvised.

    I realize that after cycle most of us feel crappy and bloated. So you want to cut.

    By bulking the first 3-4 weeks then cutting backs carbs (make sure you leave enough cals to grow) then you will firm and define up the last 2 weeks, do you won't feel so crappy about after the cycle and you can continue to eat right during PCT so you hold onto the gains...

    That's the plan anyways!

  8. Yeh. I wanted to try bridgeing SD with something to keep the gains. I hope this works out. I need to decide quick its almost ban time

  9. Not condoning the sale of "banned" drugs, but...

    You can always buy them now and sale them later when people start to run out if you choose not to take them.

    Apparently lots of people are doing this, or so I've read on here.

    In my opinion, its best to time your pct when you can eat at least maintaince or a bit over maintaince. for a contest i cut hard for 3-4 months, then when pct rolls around I dont lose any strength in fact I have gained some strength before, not even trying, but my main goal was just to maintain what i had on cycle.

  11. I'm trying to make sure I eat at least 250 calories over my maintenance. Although I was debating on making it 500. Which seems a little bit high, but figuring out my maintenance is harder than for most. I work on computers and work in a 4 story building. I refuse to take the elevator cause it's slow. So on bad days i'm running around I probably can go up 50 flights of stairs easy... Some days i get to just sit at my desk all day. So that was my thinking on 500 over maintenance. I'm sure i'm just going to watch what i do for that day.

  12. If u keep it low, keep an eye on ur weight and adjust as needed. Ur on the epi now. Hows that treating u

  13. I actually started PCT today. Hoping to get some pic up tonight.

    My end weight was 215.3. (+12lbs)

    So I lost 3lbs when I switched to Epi only, but my strength is still up. Still setting PR on all lifts. I also am noticing my abs popping more and veins in my thighs and such I never had.

    I'm still probably 15-17% bf, but I know I put on good clean muscle. So now to make sure I keep it. I will also be taking measurements tonight as well, I didn't feel the need to "before" as most people don't seem to have a problem putting on the muscle. It's holding on to them during PCT. so that is really what I'm focusing on.

    I log my PCT as well along with all my supps. Will post tonight, effin crazy day at work.

  14. So I'm not good at posing, and I don't need to be, lol. So if the poses are off don't hate too bad. Also on measurements I'm not sure where to measure on most, just made my best guess.

    Calfs
    16"

    Thighs (8" below hip bone)
    25 1/4"

    Biceps
    16"

    Chest
    41 3/4"

    Chest(over arms)
    51 3/4"

    Not sure about chest measurements. As I could breathe in and move it out to 53 1/8". So IDK

    Waist
    36"
    Which surprised me since all my pants are 32-34 lol. Stupid marketing people tryin to make you feel skinnier than you are, lol.

  15. So up 12lbs.

    Here are some before and after pictures.

    I'll be honest in my head I feel like I gained more mass than I did, my strength went up so much.

    I take only 3 pills as i'm trying to cut back, hopefully i can get down to 2 without caffeine headaches during the day. Since it's no longer available...

    I also take 1g of krill oil a day. I like krill oil better than fish oil, it doesn't leave as bad as an after taste, and is supposed to be more potent...
    Last edited by bmattstevens; 08-29-2012 at 01:36 PM. Reason: adding information to the post

  17. 5:00 am
    wake up, pre workout shake,
    Karbolyn, amminocore, AI Motivate, (right now AI Post Cycle Support, Erase Pro, Forma Stanza)

    5:45am
    arrive at gym, warm up

    6:00am
    Start work out

    7:15
    Post Workout Shake
    AfterShock, 1/2 scoop Amminocore

    9-9:30am (I shoot for 9, but being realistic, it's 9:30am at least half the time)
    Eat meal 1
    2 Chicken breasts,
    I try to throw some carbs in here as well, but it doesn't always happen, sometimes it's a whole grain begal, sometimes oat meal, but 80% of the time it's just chicken

    11:30-Noon
    Protien Shake
    All-Max Cassin Protein 2 scoops

    1:30-2pm
    2 Chicken Breasts
    no carbs

    4:30-5pm
    Dinner
    3/4lb turkey meat, usually made into Hamburger Helper,
    Some kind of veggy, peas, green beans, broccoli

    8:00
    All-Max Cassin 2 scoops
    All-Max Whey 1 scoop
    2 eggs
    big scoop PB crunchy, not that it matters that it's crunchy, but i like to specify cause everyone loves one or the other, lol
    2% milk around 6oz, sometimes up to 10, just to get it to blend.

    Ends up being over 85g protien 40g carbs. If I don't eat that I end up starving when I wake up... Actually i'm starving when i wake up anyways...

    ** Since Chicken breasts are not all the same size. I basically have 24oz of Chicken a day, sometimes it's 3 small ones, or what not. I buy a 3lb bag of chicken, and eat half each day... So 24oz a day.

  18. Daily Totals are as follows:

    Calories
    2810

    Protien
    449

    Carbs
    183

    calories might be my problem after adding it all up. But honestly I know i'm over 3K cause I always am sneaking a snake somewhere, be it an extra scoop of PB, or some string cheese. But i'm probably not over 3K by much.


    Any thoughts or comments?

  19. OD with the protein that's almost double what u need. Carbs, good mi would go higher. Keep the water up. Are u taking creatine?

    Most SD gains are water and glycogen. So water and carbs are important.

    How long are u into pct. How much have u lost so far.

  20. Started PCT yesterday still at 215, well I was this morning anyways...

    The creative is in the aftershock

  21. So up the carbs?

    I posted the aftershock ingredients above, it's pretty much has everything you want post workout, all in one, it's expensive but I don't have to put 5 things in my shake just 1.

    It has BCAAs, creatine, carbs, protein, to much else I can't spell while I'm driving lol

  22. Sounds good G. Good luck with pct u where going with clomid?

  23. Yeah 100 first two days then

    75/75/50/50/25(if needed)

    These 2 days of high Clomid have sucked... Lol. Price we pay I guess lol

  24. So maybe drop protein 100g
    Up carbs 100g

    That sound good?

    Calories look ok?

    That's a daily dose? U need clomid at least 4 weeks.
    To be honest u will lose almost half of what u gained from SD once u drop the bloat
