    Big and Strong with 5/3/1 and M-sten rx


    Hello guys, I would like to thank all who helped and added advice and criticism in my other posts in regards to this cycle. Starting at 5:30 am today I took my first 10mg dose of Iron mag labs M sten rx. My beginning stats are as follows:
    Ht 5'9
    wt 197- was 210 4 weeks ago and became unsatisfied with my bf% so I've been restricting calories(note my diet was seefood if you know what i mean)

    Current maxes with 5/3/1
    Dead: 405x9
    Squat: 385x8
    Bench: 285x4

    My goals for this cycle are to recomp and get stronger. I would very much like to continue to drop some more fat whilst adding some lean mass. I think a final bodyweight between 205-210 would be nice at a lower bf %. I would also like to see my total go up to over 1300. The last time I maxed for 1 rep I was at 495 dead, 415 squat, and 335 bench. This was all done in 2012 with the exception of the deadlift in january.

    On cycle I will be running;
    Msten rx, 4 andro rx , Ai cycle support, aegis, a multi, fish oil and some lclt

    pct will consist of :
    Tamoxifen Citrate, D aspartic acid, Ai Perform, E control rx(6 oxo), Ursol XT, and Cycle support
    I will most likely add some Crea-Trona and Ana Beta.(These are the only two that I have not purchased yet)


    I will update on monday as I do not expect to see much out of this for the first week or so; although ive read some logs and this stuff kicks in pretty quick. Regardless I wont expect much early and if by chance I do feel some sort of effect I will be pleasantly surprised and log it in here of course.


    Thanks for reading and please follow along!!

    Its gonna be interesting how you appetite is gonna be affected. Some people lose theirs from what I read. I had a huge appetite while on but I was stacking trenazone also and that made me super carb hungry

    I too have read both, I don't mind the appetite increase ill just eat more proteins. I have a stupid amount of tilapia and chicken in my freezer. I also wouldn't mind the suppressed appetite- although I really don't think anything can kill mine; my appetite is ravenous no matter what the compound.

    Like I told you earlier I came in to get pump tarded, was my form tight?, most likely not. But I did it.anyways -was I a bit over zealous? Of course I was but you know me dude that's just how I am haha.

    The latter portion of the squats were probably tucked and ugly. Almost like I was catching back in.my baseball days....bottom like is I went into the gym and got **** done haha

    3/20. Ohp 5/3/1. 5 week

    115x5. 135x5. 155x8

    DB incline press
    80x15x3
    80x11- last set was fried

    Chins bwx20 45lb plate x 10 25 lb plate x 10. Bwx15

    Neutral grip lat pulldown
    170x15x2. 130x15

    Triceps pushdowns(rope) 100x15x3 80x20
    Hammer curl. 40x10x3

    In all a good Session, pump came quick and recovery between sets was good. I swear I flew through this lift. In the ways of the msten vascularity is fantastic, if I could drop a % or two in bf I will look like a roadmap.

    No sides to report tommorrow is an off day time to rest and recoup for deadlifts!

    Quick update I have been experiencing back pumps yesterday and today. My Job requires me to be on my feet most of the day. Nothing crippling or severe but have decided to move deads to Saturday and start taking Taurine ,potassium and cranberry extract today as a precaution. I will be benching today instead. Will update later and note any changes.

    3/22
    5/3/1 bench 5 week

    205x5. 235x5 265x6. I had no spotter I was a bit wary of continuing I didn't want to decapitate myself.

    Dumbbell bench press
    90x20(absolutely smoked this set)
    100x15
    100x13
    100x12. I was thouroughly impressed with my recovery between these sets. Definitely the highlight of my workout.

    Hammer strength incline press
    90lbs per side single arm press
    4 sets of 10 slow negatives

    Dumbbells rows
    120x15
    120x13
    120x12
    120x10-- my grip progressively became worse. I don't want to use straps though.

    Triceps pushdown v-bar/triangle
    140x20x4

    Face pulls
    80x15x3

    Finished up with some weighted sit ups and cardio


    Great intensity and aggression today. Weight was 206 today. I have been hoarding water. Still look dry but definitely beginning to notice a Fuller look.

    Good things happening more to come!

    Deadlifts.

    295x5. 355x5 395x10

    Leg press.
    540x20x4

    Hamstring curls
    110x15x4

    Hanging leg raises
    Weighted sit ups
    Ab wheel
    2x20

    Rotary calf
    50x25x4

    Good strong deadlift session, back was pretty tight towards the end..but that's to be expected
    Noticing increased vascularity and aggression. My mood has been pretty elevated as of late despite me.being very confrontational. -please note that this is one of my more prominent attributes. I have always been willing to argue/bicker. This is most often a result of my honesty which is pretty harsh
    There's no grey areas with me haha

    So after much deliberation and convincing I have decided to switch training methods from 5/3/1 to the cube(*guess who facilitated that). Let it be said that 5/3/1 is extremely effective at building strength I have just opted for tthe program that I feel offers more specificity.

    3/26 cube heavy squat day

    365x2. 5sets

    Pause squats 205x3 reps. 3 second hold 3 sets- I learned my lesson last week

    Hamstring curls 110x15x4
    Quadriceps ext 170x15x4

    Ab wheel and knee raises
    3x15 each

    This training session was great, I was challenged by the squats and feel as if I have made a step in the right direction adding to my total. Legs feel strong and the msten is providing good aggression and pumps. It's day 11 and I cannot say much in the ways of "feeling on" but I do know that I come into the gym with a better Intensity and drive. Appetite is way up as well as libido and I am having a hard time keeping to the recompense goal. I may just feed the monster for the duration and make the most of what I have. My weight is between 204-207 morning/evening. I look Fuller and seem to feel what may be a stronger mind muscle connection.
    Hopefully things continue and this stuff really kicks into gear ...no sides to report.

    Man I had no stabilizers left. That 365x2 was extremely challenging for me. What would you suggest I do in place of them.

    hamstrings-good morning variations, stiff legged dl, Romanian dl, ghr (there's ways to do ghr's if you don't have the setup, I'll find it for you later on YouTube)

    quads-Olympic stance squat, db/bb lunges, db step ups, front squats

    pretty much anything in Lilly's book, grab it off herder if you haven't already

    if you're wore out just stick with some light 10-20 rep sldl/rdl or ghrs and some lunge variation

    your squats and deadlift will thank you

    I have the book. Just botched the remainder of the assistance.

    Part of me still wants to hold on to the bb mentality because I trained that way for years. It worked for me but I was an athlete in.hs and college. I like the competition that powrlifting brings. I have more drive and will to get better rather that stare at a mirror for the duration of my workout.
    The intensity and camaraderie is great and keeps me much more involved rather than going through the motions.

    I felt good, i would kill for a training partner however. This solitary stuff is nice and all but I need constructive criticism.

    But really felt like Kong Kong. So much fun man

    But really felt like Kong Kong. So much fun man
    Feel you 100% on wanting a training partner. Been lifting alone for years not and although it certainly has its perks, I'd much rather have a dedicated knowledgable training partner.

    Ab wheel x3 standing 3x20 kneeling

    4/2

    Rep effort bench 245x8x1

    Awesome man, recomp is what I'm hoping for when I run MSten. Plan on stacking it with a mild dose of Epi.

    Seems like you've gained around 8-9 lbs? Any idea how your calories have been?

    Nice so pretty much eating at maintainence except on the weekends. Gaining 9 pounds on that sounds great. And you still got like 10 days right?

    Also, what type of cardio have you been doing?
