    Yeah I no longer trust my calipers after I read 12% body fat, did a cut for a month and a half losing a little over 10lbs then still read 12% body fat even though I was obviously leaner.

    Pictures are definitely the best way to gauge progress man, and isn't the way you look what really matters anyway?

    A bit of bloat might occur with the Bulk in there. I wouldn't become too worried about it unless it greatly worsens.

    Everything was going great until I noticed a little tenderness/pain on my right nipple. I am glad that tomorrow is when I start hard it should put this back towards normal, should I up the dose ? Today is the first day I noticed this

    Was thinking of maybe starting sustain alpha at 5 on 2 off or erase pro every other day as well.

    weight is 174

    Strength is up
    Bigger arms for sure will measure soon. Upper body looks wider and more definition.
    Vascularity is amazing

    swelling is down this morning not as painful either... but if I touch it, it hurts pretty badly. took 3 hard 3 mass today so that is really 4.5 hard which should give my body a good amount of DHT.

    gained strength on all my exercises and am maintaining at 174 right now. I am leaning out at the same time which is nice to see. It is probably because I stopped dermatherm last Friday. + enhance. more definition on all muscles. I will take pictures this weekend.

    does anyone have an idea how the gyno started to form? it happened the day before week 5 started. Since I started AH it hasn't been bothering me much at all I think it's all head now. it's a very small spot but noticeable if u look hard enough...
    Could it be from the topical 4 dhea? or maybe from accidentally putting dermacrine on my chest by not washing my hands before putting enhance on?
    Or could it have been from Alpha bulk 4-dhea? I'm confused how this happened

    I have confidence AH will work.

    Is it sensitive or painful? If not, it may be in your head. I do it to myself all the time.

    It was painful the first day I noticed it, since then it hasn't been painful. I have been avoiding it completely. but my friend touched it just messing around and within about 30minutes i got a heat sensation and itchiness

    sorry I haven't updated in a while, I have been super busy. this past Saturday I finished the alpha mass. Still have alpha bulk which I am going to finish off probably this week or next. the gyno symptoms have subsided except for my right side being a very small amount puffier. Strength gains are very good I added weight to every exercise.

    today is day 38
    weight is 176 (+8 ) this is great because my obliques are showing more even though I gained 8 lbs in 5weeks.

    Now hopefully I can hit 180 and maintain it. Will do a caliper test Friday and re weigh. Also will post pictures, it will be almost the end of week 6 which is the halfway point.

    okay so today is the end of week 6 aka day 42. So far things have been pretty good not many cons. I have gained about 8lbs and I look noticeably larger. My mom, brother, and gf's mom all said I look bigger/ jacked. I haven't seen them in 4 weeks.

    switched my workout up to a full body routine with cardio on the off days, I am going to test it today and officially start it Monday. it will be posted on the next post

    So this week I am taking

    3 AndroMass
    3 AndroHard
    3 Pumps AndroEnhance
    3 Augmentor
    2 AndroDrive

    I find that whenever I take 3 or more drive I get insomnia lol

    I am going to the gym later so I will update weight / measurements later tonight.

    Loving the new workout feeling super pumped afterwards. I weighed in at 179 yesterday but that must of been water weight bc no way I went up 3lbs.

    Strength gains are happening constantly, I keep having to add weight/reps. I love this lol

    Measured my waist and it was 32.5 but idk how accurate that is since I just ate, I will do measurements Saturday morning and record all of them again.

    Saturday is the end of week 7. So I have left 8,9,10,11,12 left which should be plenty of time to solidify gains and lean up

    I will probably cut back on calories the last 4 weeks. this depends on my weight and body fat. I love being on an all out bulk lol

    So I did some fartleks today, damn that **** was hard! I did them with my buddy who was a cross country runner. he weighs 130 so he has a huge advantage he a small bitch haha jk lol it pushed me a lot harder because I had to keep up with him

    I didn't finish my planned routine. i did this on the outside track. what I did was:

    10minute warm up
    break to stretch
    30seconds on, 30 off
    1 min on, 30 off
    1min 30 seconds on, 30 off
    2 minutes on, 30 off
    1min 30seconds on, 30 off.

    I did this straight through and had crazy cramps in my right obliques and calves.

    I might drop the cycle back to 11 weeks since my AE will only last me to week 10.5 at the rate I am using it. If so I will increase the dosage of mass and hard to 4 for weeks 9,10,11

    Good work man, definitely looks like you're a little leaner with a little more muscle fullness. Good results so far.

    ehhh not anything unusual that I can't associate with my stressful lifestyle. But on the 1-dhea I noticed a lot. The week after I stopped it I started noticing a great increase in energy and drive, probably from the hard/mass.

    No skin irritations for me. My friend on the other hand notices hives for a week and he never gets them. It hasn't happened since week 2 though
