OK GUYS UPDATE!!! HAHA I have been wayyyyy deep into my cycle and friggin loving it. I apoligize for the last week I haven't given an update but its now time I reveal some serious results. Very sorry for the weight but like I said I literally have physically drained myself every god damn day and been eating "to the t" what i have planned out.
So Im sittin at 5 and 1/2 weeks. Today is day 39!
For anyone who may just be tuning in I dropped the anadrol out of my cycle about 11 days ago. Just a few days after dropping the anadrol I lost some water and weighed in 208-210lbs. Now while continuing to use Test E/Deca I currently weigh 219lbs! Heaviest ever for me and I've wanted for so long to reach 220. So far that leads me to a weight gain of approximately 14-15lbs. I know weight does not matter to some... its how you look, i know. Its just a personal goal that at the end of cycle (before PCT) I would be impressed to see 230-235lbs. I believe it possible. I have set high goals for me in the past and been able to reach them.
As far as my diet goes, Im spending a **** ton of cash on food. Lots and lots of chicken, eggs, whole grain breads, fish, red meat EOD, tuna, oatmeal, go lean crunch, bananas, apples, "protein granola", low fat yogurts, rice, rice, more brown rice, strawberries, pineapple, blueberry, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, romain lettuce, tomato, turkey burgers, turkey sausage, LF peanut butter, celery, almonds, raisin brand, oatmeal squares cereal, skim milk only, some lunch meat for sandwiches at work. Im sure I am missing some but off the top of my head a lot of the stuff I pick up once or twice a week.
I am eating about 3-4 small meals and 3 large meals every day.
5:30 am gainer protein shake
6 am 6-8 egg whites, 2 whole grain toast, turkey sausage or bacon, 16 oz water
8:45 rice cake, home made turkey sand. tomato and lettuce, whole grain bread, 1 apple, 16 oz water
10:30 low fat yogurt, granola, syntha 6 protein 1 serving, sometimes a fruit salad
12- (very random since im at work sometimes I go out or whatever) but for the sake of keeping it accurate lets say leftover from last nights chicken, green beans, sweet potato. 16 oz water
3 pm 1 serving isopure banana flavor**
6- Chicken breast, 1 cup rice, 1/2 cup greens, 16 oz water
about 7 pm workout!!!!
9pm Dinner samon with lemon, sweet potato, mixed vegetables, 16 oz water
10:30 pm casein protein 1 serving.
I hold onto a gallon of water I sip on all day also.
Now today I ran outta syntha 6 so I picked up isopure and more gainer and also bought MP protein to try their product. Seen this company alot lately obviously. also grabbed the Muscle pharm pre workout. I am sooo sick of C4.
Now something I want to talk about again is my ability to squat now. For the longest time before taking deca I barely ever squat and when I did I wouldn't do more that 185lbs. In the last 3 leg workout days over the course of approximately a week and a half I have squatted the first and third day with near no pain in my knee. I also have been able to get off the smith machine and free squat. Today I did 5 sets of free squats not including the warm up. started at 225. worked my way to 315. And on the last set I got a little curious and threw on a quarter making it 365lbs and I did 4 times no problem but racked it to stay safe and I also haven't worked with a partner too often lately. So needless to say I have had great success at finally building my quads. The separation of the muscles and my outter thigh is just bulging. I used to fear the pin going in to far and hitting a bone or something but now I really don't have to worry about that. sounds ridiculous but its the truth.
My last chest day I remember myself pumping 275 a couple sets for 8-10 reps. This beats my numbers I had while on cycle my last Test E cycle.
Threw on 295 on a fourth or fifth set to see what would happen and believe I still got up 4 reps which is not bad after blowing out my chest at 275lbs. In between cycles I would have had a rough time doing 275 4 reps. So 5 1/2 weeks in I can bench press I would estimate 40 lbs more as of right now compared to the day before I started this cycle.
A week of my workout schedule rarely ever stays the same from week to week but this last week looked like
Sunday- Back and Biceps (love sundays, nobody is there... able to really work on my dead lift, trying to get that stronger)
Monday-Legs and abs (putting a lot of stress on the abs mixing up movements trying to keep stuff fresh but again hitting abs hard!)
Tuesday Shoulders, cardio 30-45 mins
Wednesday- Chest, triceps, hit abs hard once again
Thursday-Back and biceps with much emphasis on building my lats out.
Friday-Legs and shoulders
Saturday- abs first 30-45 mins about 12 sets minimum, chest and triceps
This is a 7 day workout week... I only rest when I feel I need it. I don't stick to a schedule and rest every sunday or every saturday. I rest when I need to. Also I am putting much emphasis on certain parts of my body trying to really pull together my physique as I am becoming more advanced.
Some body parts grow much faster than others and a lot of what determines that is genetics, I'm trying to get to the next level and really balance everything out. Some people may say I'm over training and there is no doubt I am exhausted at the end of every day but I don't believe in that. I am just simply working on my diet currently and re-organizing so I can eat more of the right carbs, cals, protein. By the end of this cycle my diet may be completely different. I picked up some bodybuilding diet books and will be trying a lot of what I will be learning.
Now obviously I posted pictures a couple weeks ago and got a good response that boosted my confidence. After really studying the many pictures I have taken of myself the last few months I have really come a long long long way. I always am getting complemented or someone coming up to me in the gym. I'm getting massive! Deca is known to hold lots of water but I really have not seen that TOO much in myself, I guess the 12.5 mg exemestane is working. And as for my other sides. Not much at all has changed. I have carefully been studying my nipples in paranoia. But all checks out well lol. Once again, the only sides I have had are night sweats. My blood pressure has been decent. No prolactin sides I can see. My nipples are always a little puffy, at least thats what i think... but nothing more than im used to. I think because I got such a good response on the pictures I won't post any more pictures until maybe the 2/3 thru cycle mark. I would like you guys to CONTINUE to see great change and for me to be as impressive as possible. In all reality tho, thats only 2 weeks!
Again I am having a great time on cycle! really using it to its fullest. Concentrating on catching up my legs with the rest of my body. Which so far I have done an excellent job. Ill show you guys a leg shot next time. I may be able to pull a shot from the past six months as well, ill have to look.
My hcg has been consistent 250iu night before injection. Last night was the first night I forgot. But I'm hoping one missed hcg shot won't make it of break it. No emotional issues that can be relevant with deca that I notice, In fact I do now recommend to anyone trying to bulk up and put on some size. Stuff is ridiculous. Everyday I get stronger and bigger, and despite the water retention that is known to be relevant I actually feel I look like Im cutting up!!!
Well I apologize again for the length of time between updates but I haven't slowed down. I caught a cold last week that was the only downer I had but it didn't stop me from going to the gym. I shook that cold and my last few workouts have had such an intensity I just can not believe it. I mentally tell myself another rep, another rep, and i just keep getting em done. I look ridiculous in the gym haha tell me to get over myself but I honestly can only think of a handful at my gym who are very close or more ripped than I. See ya soon guys! Ill update much sooner from now on I just really got in the zone and at the same time I wanted to be able to tell you guys a lot. Sometimes updating daily is a little boring to me. Peace brothas!

Good to see you are still killing it bro, you are making deca so tempting lol

Well I can say I am just about half way thru my cycle. The strength and size gains have been tremendous! Beginning cycle at I believe 204 lbs, the last few days I have fluctuated around 220 lbs. This I consider a success so far. This also not being my first cycle I wasn't sure how much growth or gains in strength I would experience. I can say I have blown myself away.
I have dropped anadrol about 2 weeks ago and it seems to not have affected my lifts in any way, or my physique for that matter. I made a pretty smooth transition dropping the oral. It's also apparent that I have become even stronger since dropping the anadrol. Don't get me wrong the the anadrol was a great kick starter. I know this because once I began to take it I immediately began to grow and friends began to comment.
The HCG has been 250iu 2x weekly, the night before my pin. For some reason I have gotten into the habit of pining my quad with Test/Deca, and hcg always in the delts. I guess I find it most comfortable that way. The insulin needles half the time I never feel it. They are no prob. Sometimes I get a little nervous still pinning my quads tho. Not that it really ever hurts cause it doesn't... I just still get an adrenalin rush. For withdrawing and pinning I use a 20G and 25G. They are 1''. Maybe 1.5". I forgot which one but either way I just make sure that the needle is near all the way in. On my body I don't need to go very deep to find muscle. Exemestane 12.5mg EOD. Been treating me well, not much bloat. Haven't touched the caber or letro. I believe the exemestane is keeping all at bay. I am sure to watch closely though.
Now one concern I had at the beginning of my cycle is I noticed some hair loss... well since then I have closely been observing my hair line and come to the conclusion that I may have thinned a VERY little bit but I don't believe that AAS contributed or progressed this any further than my natural genetics had intended. I did use a few times, Nizoral. I don't know what I think about it but guess it helps. Maybe once a week I'll use that shampoo. The night sweats the last couple of nights have been a little better. Still sweat but haven't woken up in a puddle in a couple days haha.
Now back to my knee... I was curious obviously how this Deca would "lubricate" knee. The last few weeks I have had pain but it seems to be not as much as before. And I said I had pain because I don't want this next statement to mislead anyone. I have had a couple leg work outs where i had basically no pain in my knee and was squatting with no problem. I am not sure how this is helping me or not yet but I am curious about the 2nd half of my cycle. Will it get better? We'll see. When I do feel the pain now though I am letting off a little and may move onto a less stressful movement such as leg extension.
I switched my pre-workout from C4 to Assult by MP. I do like it so far, my workouts have been very high intensity and as the sets progress it seems I am not slowing down in more weight or reps... mostly due to injectables obv. After running out of my last few proteins I found myself with 3 I am currently using now. Isopure after a workout. Pro complex gainer randomly and MP combat powder randomly. I recommend all three if anyone is looking at these. Great taste, QUALITY protein... get chocolate or banana flavors.
Pretty shortly I will post some more pictures so you guys can see some visual progress. Honestly I never really wrote down any size measurements I have made but I do know before this cycle my arms were under 17" and now I am sitting damn near 18". Not the biggest arms but excellent progress. I have been putting an emphasis on the balance symmetry of my body. Since I have been right handed my whole life my right side of my body is much stronger in some workouts. I have been trying to balance this out as it can be done quickly on a cycle like this. Also like I have said before I have been trying to catch my abs up to the rest of my body. They have come a very long way and I am not even close to being done. With all this water I am supposedly retaining I can't imagine what my abs will look like dry. The muscles are becoming larger and harder. making them look more defined and bulky (in a good way). Also as I have stated before I have been trying to put emphasis on my legs. Personally I think I don't have legs that are proportionate to my body. There is no doubt that I have made them larger now. My girlfriend has told me that she has seen much progression in my legs. My quads are larger and build much farther out than I remember, my cax5lves are the slow grower on my body but even in them I have seen decent progression in size and roundness. And a side view of my legs is starting to look much thicker my hams are filling out well giving my legs a very good look.
Today was a chest, tricep, and ab day. I layed off the weighted dips I have been doing as all that weight hanging from me has been a stress on my wrists. I went to the machine today and stacked that instead. It was good to change it up though cause man!!! triceps are burnt the F*** out. That's one thing I have noticed significantly the last few weeks. Usually working out it is difficult to feel sore the next day or two, for me... but I guess these AAS have been pushing me so much in the gym sometimes I don't realize how hard I went until the next day or even when I get home from the workout. Sometimes I just feel SSSOOO drained out, I really don't feel good sometimes. Today I had no partner but wanted to increase the weight to see how I would perform. On a flat bench press after warm up it looked something like this...
275x8 for 2 sets ( I consider these cautious sets, I had no spotter so didn't really go 100%)
295x5 Last set with a spotter. PR reps. Did all 5 without any help, could not have done a sixth after 3-4 sets though haha.
So like I said I have been making excellent strength gains. All my major lifts squats, bench, dead lift... they are all up about 50 lbs. It's been great. I don't want it to end. I feel unstoppable at the gym. Like I mentioned a couple weeks ago. I lately have been covering up at the gym with longer shirts because I believe it becoming apparent to the regulars somethings up hah. Even my family. Don't get me wrong tho, I love it, I just don't want to deal with some people asking me questions about it.
Tomorrow is back day and I love back day. My lat spread is looking more impressive every day. My back has blown the heck up and I have been doing 45 lb weighted pull ups for 5-6 reps on my last set or two. That is something I have been working out for almost a year. Finally got it. Looking to turn that into a full set by end of cycle.
Thanks again guys. Your company is very much appreciated, as is your time and comments. I personally am looking forward to impressing you guys with some more pictures shortly, Maybe some before and during cycles. Hope to see you all here shortly!

Hey bro I'm just curious. I was planning on running prammi instead of hcg, because don't wanna inject myself everywhere lol. But just curious if you pin urself the same or do u use a smaller syringe. also a 5000iu vial would get me 10 weeks at 500 per week, is this correct. Thanks bro!
11-06-2012, 06:57 AM
You inject hcg sub q so it's a lot smaller syringe. You don't inject into a muscle like you do juice you pinch q bit of fat in your abdominal area an inject it into it.Originally Posted by msrider

Plus prami is used to control prolactin related issues. They do two different things. You'll need both if you want to run deca safely and be prepared.Originally Posted by msrider

prami is more like caber if im not mistaking... I was not aware however that prami is an injection because I just have 1mg pills of caber on hand incase. Why use Prami as injection tho if you could just take caber... personal pref?
11-06-2012, 03:16 PM
Yeah man just like insulin. No worries bro. When I do my next run HCG is going to be a must!Originally Posted by msrider
11-06-2012, 04:26 PM
I use insulin needles and I can't feel it at all. But then again I love pinning... I get a rush every time haha. The 25 G for test is good for me as well. Takes a minute longer but I'd rather not feel pain.
I also said I'd post pictures today but change in plans.. I'd like to shave my hairy chest first haha. I have actually looked into a groupon recently for laser hair removal. Anyone tried or recommend this?
Did an hour and a half of chest and triceps today but called my girl to come pick me up. I went so hard I am exhausted and couldn't finish with abs. I am getting the impression I use so much energy that after an hour or two I just can't go 100%. I thought about taking a break in the middle and buying a protein bar but I just got a ride home and am going to eat again. I plan on a second training session tonight. Abs only. I also am stuck a 217-221 lbs for two weeks now. I need to eat another meal or two a day. So from now on I'll be taking one or two more additional rubbermaids to work. Eating currently 6x a day but going for 8x now since I hit this barrier. Despite no weight gain I am changing shape drastically and as friends have mentioned getting real "cut up." Update later tonight. gotta rest and eat. im exhausted.

I wasn't gunna use prami as injection. I misunderstood what its use was for. I didn't want to have to pin myself a ton of times but now I found out I can use insulin needles makes me feel at ease lol I can get hcg pretty cheap so I will use it too. A 5000iu vial will get me through ten weeks at 250 x 2 per week rite?Originally Posted by jhaup87
11-06-2012, 10:55 PM
Thanks bro! Makes me feel relieved. Didn't want to pin 6 x a week with those big ass needles lolOriginally Posted by Lukef2000

What's going on bro? Haven't posted in a while....how's the cycle treating you.
