My 1-Test/4AD/MDHT/M4oht/T3 cycle...
01-05-2005 07:38 PM
Leg day today, new personal best on squat for reps. Increased my last set of 6 by 10lbs, so 10lbs more than I have ever done at 6 reps. Probably could have done 15lbs but didn't want to push it. It has been a little difficult with the strength increases to select the correct weight for each set, don't want to be too heavy and burn out before the last set, but want to be too light either. Diet today is so far spot on. Weight is holding at 220lbs. Another 25mcg of T3 today tomorrow I go to 50mcg. Still not feeling anything from the T3. Sides so far: increased facial hair grow, usually shave every 2-3 days now I really need to shave after 1-2 days, slight difficulty sleeping taking melatonin I have no problems, last some slight itching. These sides aren't anything major, just something I have noticed. Other than that I feel normal.

Sholders/core work today. Strength increases on shrugs, also grip is getting stronger. Diet today was pretty good 1 meal wasn't as clean as I normally eat, but cals and protein was spot on. Today was the first dose of 50 mcg for the T3 and I got a little lethargic towards the end of the day. Also it felt like I was warmer and it took less to get me sweating, but it could be just in my head. We'll see how tomorrow goes, I didn't expect to notice the T3 for at least 5 or so days. On a side note, I ran out of caps of MDHT so I have switched powder in a Bacardi 151 solution. The first dose in the morning is harsh, I think I will make an olive oil solution after this one runs out.

Off day today, not much to report. Played some golf that was about it. Diet was pretty good today. I did manage to get a hold of a digital cam so I got a pic, not the best of quality. Couldn't figure out how to turn the flash off, so I set it to the lowest flash setting. Thats why its so dark. I wanted to get a bulked pic up so I could get a good view of the changes after the T3 cycle. In the pic I am holding a little more water than normal.

No weights today, but I did do some HIIT. Man am I out of shape, haven't done any hiit or cardio in a few months. Got a good pump during the sprints, did more than I thought I could. Afterward my lungs were on fire. I am going to try in get in 3 hiit sessions a week and maybe some very low intensity cardio. High/moderate intensity cardio just makes me smaller, not leaner. Diet today was excellent. Another 50mcg dose of T3 today tomorrow I will up it to 75mcg. I think that is were I am going to peak, might go to 100mcg.

You log is inspiring me. Keep it up!

Thanks, its nice to know someone is reading it.

Well, this marks the half way point of the cycle. Off day today, diet was pretty good. I think I am beginning to feel the T3, I have noticed that I am never cold now. Its not the point that I am sweating or anything, not uncomfortable but noticeable. Also for some reason my abs/obliques were soar from the hiit yesterday, legs feel fine though. Not noticing any other sides. Iâll get a weight measurement tomorrow, should be interesting 220lbs was the last measurement 4 days ago.

Keep up the good work. Great log!!!!

I weighed in at 219lb this morning. So, 4 days and down a 1lb. Worked back/bi's today, very slight strength increases on back, a little more noticeable on the bi's. Endurance was about the same as last week, but this workout felt harder. The T3 is defiantly kicking in, today I was sweating more than I normally do. I think it made it harder to get through the workout. A few times throughout the day I could kind of feel myself radiating heat. 75mcg is probably going to be the highest I go. Diet today was pretty good, cals were slightly low but other than that good. I wanted to get a hiit session in today, but just didn't have time.
01-11-2005 11:37 PM
Worked chest/tris, this workout did not go so well. It felt like the strength was there, but I fatigued so quickly. Got that last rep that I couldn't last week on bench but that was pretty much the only positive today. I had to cut sets down and weights. The T3 seems to just suck the energy right out of me. All day today I have been warm, sometimes uncomfortably warm and tired. Didn't have time to get in any hiit, but I did do a lot of walking around campus today trying to get me spring schedule together. Diet today was good hit my protein and cal numbers. I think I may increase the number of carbs in my preworkout meal to get some more energy in the gym.

Day 31 - 32
Couldn't make it to the gym today, had to work longer than normal. Diet today was good. I am still noticably warm.
Finally got back into the gym today for legs. This workout was excellent, I think I just must have been having a bad day on the chest/tri workout. New personal record for squat, also kept the same volume as last week. I was pretty happy with this workout, felt like I was in the zone. So far I am up 50lbs on squats for sets from when I started this cycle, up 30lbs from my previous best. I felt like I had maybe 10lbs more in me but didn't want to push it. Stepped on the scale today and weight is holding at 219lbs, but I am becoming noticeably leaner. I'll get another pic up at the end of next week. Diet today was pretty good, 2 of my meals were a little more spaced out than I would have liked. Might run the T3 for 4 weeks instead of three, since I seem to be adding strength while on it, but not sure.

Off day today, worked a 9 to 5 and thats about it for activity. Diet was excellent. I am quite pleased with how clean I have kept my diet for this long, usually I have a 1-2 meals every week that go pretty far outside what they should be. Tomorrow I am going to get up early and do some hiit before I have to go into work. I am not expecting much improvement from the last hiit sessions since they have been so far apart.
01-17-2005 09:38 PM
Well, I was lazy today and didn't make it out for hiit in the morning before work. I just stayed out too late the night before and needed the rest. Not much else to report today. Diet today was so-so, I had a meal with the family that wasn't very clean but other than that good.
Worked back/bi's today, workout went well. I was probably up around 5-10 pounds on all back lifts and slightly increased bi strength. Completed all reps, so this leads me to believe that I was just having an off day on the last chest/tri workout, but we'll see tomorrow. Weight as of today is 217, down 3lbs since starting the T3 and strength is up. I have decided to only run the T3 three weeks and stick to my original cycle plan, so Sunday will be the last day. Diet today was on target.

You can't avoid the heat with the T3, just stay hydrated. Also, because metabolism is up, if you do start to lose strength up cals to avoid catabolism. If your tired it could mean your on the verge of this. Great log!

Thanks for the reply. I think I had preworkout carbs a little low before, but I fixed that. Workouts this week so far have been much better.
Yeah, but I have found a pretty effective way to deal with it. The only time the heat really bothers me is the 3-4 hours following a workout, drinking around ~30oz of really cold water every time I start to feel hot really helps. The only down side is you have to visit the bathroom every 45mins.

Today was chest/tri, good workout defiantly better than last week. Strength was the same on bench, but up on db incline. I was also able to complete more sets. As I mentioned earlier I think my preworkout meals in the prior weeks were a little low in carbs, but I have upped them this week. This will be the last week of the T3, I start titrating down tomorrow from 75mcg. Then I switch from MDHT to M4OHT, which I plan to run at 50mg for 2 weeks. On a side note, I use a college gym and today was the first day back it was pretty packed, man am I going to miss having the gym to myself.

Day 39 - 40
Took both of these days off, to busy with finishing up working full time and the start of the semester. Tomorrow though I will get in the gym for a leg day and will probably make it in Saturday for a workout. Diet for these days has been great, I have been pretty proud of myself with being able to stay on a fairly strict diet without any disaster meals. Picked up a few things to add to my pct, in addition to novla I am going to run Fenugreek, Tribulus Terrestris 90%, and avena sativa powders.
01-21-2005 11:00 PM
Officially I have started PCT, but I will post what I think would happen if I continued the cycle.
Got into the gym for a great leg workout. Added another 10lbs on my squat reps from last week, it took every last bit to get the last few reps of the last set. I was pretty drained after the squats but made it through the rest of the workout with the same weight as last week. Got on the scale today and still at ~218lbs, I got this number later in the day from when I usually weigh in, so I think it may be lower. I am going to run out of my MDHT solution 3 doses before I am suppose to start the M4OHT so it looks like I will begin the M4oht a little early. To help with thyroid recovery I have some lean Extreme, L-tyrosine, and Guggulsterone powders. We'll see if I can make it into the gym tomorrow, I planed on going in the morning but someone called in sick at work and I have to cover their shift.

Couldn't make it into the gym today due to work. Legs were not near as sore as I thought they would be, should be fine after tomorrow. I will try to get a hold of a digital cam and get pics up by tomorrow night. I started the M4oht today at 25mg, I am going to run 50mg a day. I wish I knew the half life of this stuff so I could get a better dosing scheme, but I think 50mg broken into 3 doses should work. I have one more dose of T3 at 25mcg and then its off for the next two weeks then PCT.

Nice log bro. I really enjoyed reading it thus far. How has the T3 worked for you?

The T3 worked fairly well, if you look at the log I was gaining weight pretty quick until I added the T3. On the T3 my weight stayed constant, but my strength increased and I leaned out a bit. Which was the result I was shooting for, ideally I would like to be 210lbs @ 7-8% bodyfat. Here are some before and after weights, three main ones I keep track of to gauge strength:
before Previous best Cycle best Gain
bench 295X6 325X6 335X6 10lbs
ALPD* 210X6 230X6 250X6 20lbs
Squat 385X6 415X6 455X6 40lbs
*ALPD = Advance Lateral Pull down
Off day today worked a few hours then had dinner with the family. I think I may be getting sick, because today I felt horrible. It felt like I had a hangover pretty much all day, massive headache. A friend of mine is just getting over an illness, maybe she passed it on to me. I thought I got pretty good sleep last night, but maybe I just needed more. I have been getting up early every morning and with the school semester starting, still working full time, and the gym I might just need more rest. So I am going to get to bed early tonight and see what I feel like tomorrow.
