m1,4ADD/1-Test/1,4Andro 6 week cycle log
*EDIT*: Cycle tweaked in response to good board suggestions (read below)
Based loosely on a 6 week bulking cycle posted by Nullifidian, I've decided to run the following 6 week cycle:
Week 1: 90mg M1,4ADD / 240mg 1-Test (transdermal) / 400mg 1,4 Andro
Week 2: 120mg M1,4ADD / 240mg 1-Test (transdermal) / 600mg 1,4 Andro
Weeks 3-4: 150mg M1,4ADD / 240mg 1-Test (transdermal) / 800mg 1,4 Andro
Weeks 5-6: 150mg M1,4ADD / 6ml Hydrotest (Tribulus) / Letro (as needed)
4 Week PCT:
Weeks 1-2: 40mg Nolva
Weeks 3-4: 20mg Nolva
I am 5' 6.5", and am currently about 165 pounds. I am looking to gain some quality mass, so I figured I'd go for it before the ban.
I will be starting this cycle on Monday, and will keep a log here. Any suggestions/comments welcome. Hopefully, I'll get some before/after pics up as well. Thanks everyone!

150 mg of M1,4Add.......WOW.......that seems like a lot. But I just saw where RobInKuwait recommends 150-180mg each day, and he knows what he's doing. You might wanna check out his log in this section just to see how his cycle is going. Also, and I could be wrong, but I would think that 4ad would be better for mass than 1,4 andro. Hopefully at least one of the experienced guys will look at ur cycle and help you because I don't have very much experience with this. Later man.

The PH/PS combo looks great, not to sure about PCT though. Four weeks of nolva at 40/40/20/20 would be better, two weeks at 20mg isn't enough IMHO.
Taking nolva in weeks 5-6 will do zilch for your natural test production because you are still taking the m1,4add(which will still be shutting you down). All it will do is get rid of some of the water you'll be retaining.
I would drop the nolva weeks 5-6, do 4weeks PCT and use an AI like Letro if the water retention becomes problematic.
I'm looking forward to following your progress, I'm planning a similar cycle in February '05 minus the regular 1,4andro (unfortunately). Is it the diol or the dione version of 1,4 that you have?
12-07-2004 09:53 PM
Thanks for the reply. The 1,4 Andro is Dione (1,4-androstadiene-3,17-dione, specifically).
I'd like more opinions on the Nolva. On my previous cycles, I've run Nolva for 4 weeks post, 40/40/20/20. But, this is my first 6-week cycle (I've run 2 4-weekers), so maybe I'm trying to be overly cautious. Plus, the water retention benefits. If others have a suggestion about the PCT, I'd be glad to hear it. I still have several days to tweak it. Thanks again for your help!

Reason I ask 'bout the 1,4 andro is the dione can aromatize to oestrogen which coupled with the methyl oestrodiol from the M14add (which the resulting dianabol will aromatise into) will bloat you up like a good 'un!
Letro will be much more effective at controling this and it'll end up costing you less. Custom has it at $40 for 50mls of 2.5mg/ml liquid and as the effective dose is 0.1mg EOD the bottle should last a lifetime!
I hear you on the caution side mate, you could always do 5 weeks of PCT at 40/40/30/20/10 (after stopping all androgens) to give extra peace of mind.
Do a search for PCT* in the PH forum, the posts in there helped me alot with planning my PCT's, Dr D. is particularly knowledgable on this subject.

Drop the Nolva in weeks 5-6, use it for at least four weeks after you stop everything. If you want to control bloat while on letro will work, Nolva is optimal, however, for early signs of gyno.
12-08-2004 04:39 PM
I would up the m14add does the last week to 180mg ed. I would maybe extend to 7 weeks so you can have 2 weeks at 180mg ed
12-08-2004 06:06 PM
Thanks for the replies. I guess I'll just do a normal 4 week PCT and drop the Nolva the last two weeks. I might look into Letro as well.
@Undertaker: I based my dosages on what I have on hand . If I had more, I would up the dosages, but I think this will work well.
12-09-2004 04:41 AM
Ok, so I ordered some Letro from Lion Nutrition (couldn't seem to find it at Custom). It's 30 ml - 2.5 mg/ml.
I read that Lion Letro is 10 "squirts" = 1ml
So I should dose this .1 mg EOD (less than half of 1 squirt) my entire cycle to cut bloat? That seems like a really small dose, however I've read about how effective it is. Also when should I start the Letro, at first signs of bloat, or all through the cycle? I've read about Letro limiting aromatization and cutting into the effectiveness of PH's (some say a little estrogen is needed for prime effectiveness), therefore cutting gains. Thanks again for your help!

Estrogen is beneficial in a bulking cycle, it really helps to impart mass gains. Don't use the Letro unless you feel the need.
12-13-2004 09:12 AM
Ok, so it's finally time. Took my first doses this morning. Will be taking the M1,4AD spread out through the day and the 1,4AD half in the morning, half in the evening. 1-Test is in the morning after shower.
Morning Weight: 162 lbs. (eek)
Time to start eating. I will post my workout tonight when I get home from the gym.

Running with the Big Boys
what does your diet and training look like?
12-13-2004 11:46 AM
Well, good question. Diet is to gorge myself (while trying to avoid fat). Hopefully, a 40/40/20 ratio, but I'm going to eat what I can get my hands on. Heavy on the protein.
Workout is a harder question...I've actually been looking for a good mass building workout (for a change of pace) and have gotten overwhelmed. It seems like nobody can agree on what works. Interesting...
Obviously, the basic compound movements will be the core (bench press, squats, military press). I've been reading a little bit about German Volume Training, but I dunno...I think everyone tries to make it rocket science when it really isn't. I do enjoy reading about muscle reaction at the molecular level as much as the next guy, but I mean, if you lift hard and heavy, you should see results. I'll probably work on the following split:
Monday: Chest & Back
Tuesday: Legs & Abs
Wednesday: Rest or Light Cardio
Thursday: Arms and Shoulders
Lifting heavy, moderate reps. Sorry I can't be more detailed; I think my research has confused me more
12-13-2004 12:12 PM
Ok, so after much deliberation, I've decided to try German Volume Training. It fits into my schedule perfectly and Phase I is 6 weeks long (so is my cycle), so what more could you ask for? Here are the details:
Day 1 - Chest and Back
Bench Press - 10x10 (90 second rest interval)
Chin Ups - 10x10 (90 second rest interval)
Dumbell Flyes: 3x10 (60 second rest interval)
T-bar row: 3x10 (60 second rest interval)
Day 2 - Legs and Abs
Squats - 10x10 (90 second rest interval)
Leg Curls - 10x10 (90 second rest interval)
Weighted Crunch Machine - 3x10 (60 second rest interval)
Calf Raises - 3x10 (60 second rest interval)
Day 3 - Off
Day 4 - Arms and Shoulders
Parallel Bar Dips - 10x10 (90 second rest interval)
Incline Hammer Culrs - 10x10 (90 second rest interval)
Bent-Over Dumbbell Lateral Raises - 3x10 (60 second rest interval)
Dumbell Lateral Raises - 3x10 (60 second rest interval)
Day 5 - Off
Sounds pretty intense. So, hey, now this is a cycle log and a review of German Volume Training!
12-14-2004 01:39 AM
Didn't eat as much as I would have liked, as a result of a nap I took in the afternoon. If I could get my sleeping patterns right, I would do much better. So I just got back from the gym and my first German Volume Training workout.
Bench Press: 10 X 10 @ 115 lbs.
Half the battle is psychologically getting over the fact that you're only benching 115 lbs (especially when you're used to lifting 200+). However, that quickly goes away as you progress through your sets. The program required a slow negative and an explosive push. Around the 4th set or so, you don't care what you look like grunting and pushing to get that last rep of 115 lbs. It's brutal. Great burn and pump.
Chins: 10 X 10
Ok, so I only managed to get 2 sets of 10 chins, and moved on to close grip pulldowns for the rest of the sets. By the end of this excercise I could walk out of the gym feeling like I got my work in. But alas...there's more.
Cable Flyes: 3 X 10-12
I was going to do dumbbell flyes, but I felt it safer to do cables with the level of fatigue I was at. Major mind over matter to complete these sets.
T-bar Row: 3 X 10-12
I really felt accomplished when I finished this workout, and I can tell it's going to be ultra effective. I'll hate myself in the morning...
Post Workout Weight (pre protein shake): 164
Only possible sides from the supps are a little stomach discomfort/bloating/gas, but that could be from the influx of food. Otherwise feel, good.
12-14-2004 09:07 AM
Not flaming, I'm glad you're receptive to suggestions. However, I think you should spend at least as much time planning your cycle meal plan as you did with the actual dosing and exercise routine. Your meal plan can make or break your cycle and I'm sure you don't want to take the ad-hoc approach to eating and take the risk of wasting 6 weeks.

I completely agree with you. Diet and nutrition is the most important aspect of any plan. Unfortunately, it can also be the hardest to implement. I realize I need to be more devoted to eating correctly to get the results I want, but I think that will come with time. I'm sure the supps will spike my appitite soon. Regardless, I need to shape up in my eating.
Case and point:
Morning weight: 161.5
My front delts are screaming, "why?!?!?" and I'm ready to go back to bed.
Legs and abs tonight.
12-15-2004 11:13 PM
Leg workout was brutal:
10 X 10 Squats
10 X 10 Calf Raises
3 X 12 Leg Curls
3 X 10 Weighted Crunch Machine
3 X 12 Weighted Oblique Machine
Ate much better today, feeling good. Still a little stomach discomfort from the Andro, but nothing horrible.
After Workout weight (pre protein shake): 163.5 lbs
