    Eat, Train, Sleep: Triumphalis, Trenazone, and Trestobol


    Welcome

    This log will detail my cycle of Triumphalis, Trenazone, and Trestobol hopefully providing an interesting read and anecdotal knowledge to a forum which has proven itself to be continually responsive to my inquiries and dialogue.

    I will describe my training, strength increases, and overall mentality towards training in this log; I will also make an effort to log my dietary and caloric intake, so that advice can be given and modifications can be transparent.

    My goals for this cycle are size oriented; and I will strive to seek a balance between overall mass gains and LBM gains (so far as my diet is concerned). I am aware of the water, glycogen, and other variables of weight retention or increase which often mask the true "effect" of an oral PH. That being said, I will not make a desired goal for the scale weight.

    I will judge my progress via strength increases and visual references, this log will contain pictures, though not frequently as I find that this diminishes their overall effect.

    **Dosing of both the PH compounds and SERMs may be subject to change; PH dosing will be modified if sides dictate, while the PCT is open to discussion and input from the boards. A cycle that cannot evolve is a cycle that cannot serve a trainee well.**

    Cycle Regiment
    Triumphalis: 45 45 45 45 45 45 (mg)
    Trenazone: 3 3 3 3 3 3 (mL)

    Trestobol: 20mg dosed PWO only


    Support Regiment
    AL Aegis: 4 capsules daily
    AL Talos: 6 capsules daily
    AL Achilles: 6 capsules daily
    BLR Formeron: 2 pumps daily

    PCT Regiment
    Clomid: 50 50 50 25 25 25
    Nolva: 20 20 20 10 10 10
    Exemestane: 25-12.5mg depending on necessity and on sides incurred, it will certainly be introduced by Week 3-4 of PCT and I will modify and extending dosing according to circumstances
    --
    Purus Labs D-Pol: 3 3 3 3 3 3
    PES Anabeta Elite: 6 6 6 6 6 6

    Notes and Gratitude

    As stated earlier, any discussion of this cycle, PCT, my dosing, and training is welcome; a log is only as effective as the dialogue that it generates.

    I would also like to extend my appreciation and thanks to all users who I have been in contact with regarding my cycle or overall training, you know who you are--this log is my tribute to your assistance.

    So in on this. I am planning almost the exact cycle. Only differences are the addition of BLR Prolactrone and Torem instead of Nolva. Good luck and watching.

    BTW what is the mg of active per ML or Trenazone? I was planning on using Celtitren (30mg caps).

    Week 1

    Volume Training: Chest, Delts, and Triceps

    BB Incline: 190x8, 190x8, 190x8, 190x6/140x10
    --
    DB Flat: 65x8, 65x8, 65x8 (with twist), 70x8, 75x8 (without)
    DB Lateral Raise: 10x20, 25x8, 30x8, 30x8, 30x8, 30x8, 10x20
    --
    EZB Overhead Extension: 50x8, 60x8, 70x8, 70x8, 70x8
    HS Flat Press (weight per side): 45x8, 60x8, 70x8, 70x8/45x10
    --
    Superset:
    Cable Low Raise: 15x10, 30x10, 30x10, 30x10
    Tricep Pressdown, V-Bar: 80x12, 100x12, 100x12, 110x10

    Calves:
    Smith Standing Raises, Raised Aerobic Step as Platform:
    135x20, 185x10, 185x10, 185x10, 185x10

    Off to a good start; those of you familiar with my training style know I favor big weights and lower reps, but I've decided to treat my problem areas (chest-tri and legs) to a distinct volume regiment once per week, to compliment the heavier lifting I'll be doing on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (the routine itself is a five day split)---I've logged extensively over at PHF.

    But for those of you who are not familiar with me, I've been training for roughly 3 years or so, currently sitting at around 170lbs lean (when I began training I was a skeletal 130!). I've certainly got a long way to go, but consistency+discipline+just a little bit of PH= where I'm at now.

    Without assistance/hands-on spotting, my heavier lifts are as follows:
    DB Flat: 110x5
    Deadlift: 410x3-5
    BB Squat: 380x3, 390x1

    With hands-on (meaning someone is standing behind me or has hands on my elbows/core during the lift (but not assistance, its largely CNS/comfort levels):
    DB Flat: 115x3-5
    BB Squat: 410x3 (I've got a video of this, hopefully I'll be able to post it as my post count increases).

    I just completed a somewhat intensive natty cut (with PES Alphamine/Anabeta Elite) and would now like to bring on the size! This has been my first time with "abs", and now that I know what it takes to get them, I am not so scared of losing them.

    Unfortunately, I cannot post images/links due to my low post count; for those of you interested to see where I am starting at, please visit my log on the PHF forums, where images are available for members (sounds like a porn ad lol).

    Consumption:
    Meal A: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 scoop Casein
    Meal B: 120g Oats, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 scoop Casein, 1 cup Egg Whites, 300g Broccoli, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter (PB2)--I call these "Mancakes".
    Meal C: 200g Brown Rice, 300g Chicken Breast, Spinach
    Meal D: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 cup Egg Whites, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal E: 250g Cottage Cheese, 100g Chicken Breast

    ~3300kcal, 57.5g fat, 313g carb, 374g prot

    (Protein was way too high today; this was not intentional, I will keep an eye on this trend).

    Thanks for following as well; If I remember correctly its 75mg per 1 mL; I've used Trenazone in the past and loved it. Aside from being rather expensive I do think its an effective and incredibly versatile compound.

    It may just be the wording of your post, so I don't mean to repeat what you already know, but Trenazone is active transdermal Dienolone while CeltiTren is Trenavar, the PH to Trenbolone--different compounds, different results/dosing ranges.

    However, I'm also considering using CeltiTren towards the end of this run, if I do add it in I'll be sure to let the loggers know. The only thing that concerns me are the prevalence of sides with the compound.

    What sides did you notice with Trenazone?

    High blood pressure is the only side I've really noticed, generally in the period following application. Also, it can dry/redden your skin with repeated use on the same areas (I try to spread it out across my body: chest/neck/clavicle, inner quads, tops of feet).

    When I first used it, at 2mL, it was alongside SD, Stano, and Mentabolan; that cycle bloated me up something fierce but I suspect it was estrogen related to the Mentabolan as I'm not experiencing the same issues now.

    Trenavar is known for night sweats, insomnia, prolactin issues, and blood pressure; it is generally used in the 60-90mg range but I have seen users go as high as 120-150mg (not that I'd recommend that offhand).

    Yeah I've done my research on Trenavar but not Trenazone. Thanks for the info.

    Today was a pain in the ass but I'm more than pleased with the squat numbers and the intensity I was able to maintain throughout. As a trainee used to the 3-6 repetition ranges for the major compounds, getting hit with multiple sets of 8 is a humbling experience, but I enjoy the challenge.

    For full disclosure, I had dosed the Trenazone for several days prior to this log to kick-start the run. I had some gnarly back pumps today, which I suspect may perhaps be related to the Trestobol. All in all, I'm excited to see where this run (and routine) take me!

    Consumption:
    Meal A: 90g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate, 2tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal B: 120g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 cup Egg Whites, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter, Spinach, Tomato
    Meal C: 200g Brown Rice, 200g Chicken Breast, Spinach
    Meal D: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 cup Egg Whites, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal E: 2 Whole Eggs, 2 scoop Casein, 2 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter

    Rest Day:

    HIIT Training, 30 Minutes: Elliptical

    I will be doing HIIT twice per week to keep fat gains in check with this bulk; looking forward to smashing chest/delts tomorrow!

    I'm also going to make a run for a 3500kcal intake for the next three weeks or so, a calorie "blast" if you will.

    Consumption:
    Meal A: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate
    Meal B: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 cup Egg Whites, Spinach, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal C: 250g Brown Rice, 300g Chicken Breast, 300g Broccoli, Tomato
    Meal D: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 cup Egg Whites, Spinach, Tomato, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal E: 2 Whole Eggs, 1 scoop Casein

    ~3200kcal, 60g fat, 301g carb, 363g protein

    I'm sure some of you are wondering why I have such a heavy protein powder intake, and would rather see more whole foods in the mix. To be honest, I go through food "phases" where a certain dish takes my fancy and I gorge on it until I tire of it. In the past, it's been a mixture of things: a sweet potato+egg+chicken omelette PWO, or the brown rice+chicken+hot sauce combination several times a day.

    My diet is entirely clean and I consider whey a food source rather than "supplement"; I do try to get a variety of protein sources in my system throughout the day, but in fact I consider wholesome carb sources (and plenty of vegetables) to be of greater importance.

    You may notice sometimes drastic changes in the specific dietary content depending on whether the day is a class-day for me or not (I'm a university student), on such days my intake is almost entirely composed of sweet potatoes, brown rice, and Ezekiel bread with several hundred grams worth of chicken breasts (easy to transport). Rest assured, I do not miss meals.

    --
    DB Flat: 80x8, 85x8, 85x8, 85x8, 85x8, 90x6

    DB Lateral Raise: 15x30, 20x30, 25x15, 25x15, 25x15
    Unilateral, Reverse Grip Tricep Pressdown: 30x15, 40x10, 40x10/15x20 (just for fun)

    Off to a good start, I'm pleased with the DB pressing, not-so-pleased with the BB pressing.

    Philosophy Time:
    (This really applies more to the PHF crowd, who have seen my logs extensively, but I figured I'd post it here as well for full disclosure)
    Some of you have been following my progress here on PHF since the days of my first P-Mag cycle and I'm sure have sensed some pretty drastic fluctuations in the numbers I've put up. Certain groups (back) have always been powerful, but my progress in the Big 3 (particularly squats/barbell benching) has been heavily augmented by the use of hands-on spotting (hands on the bar) and techniques like the box squat.

    During my SD/TZ/Stano run, I elevated my box squat to the low 400s with a spotter; although these strength gains were diminshed somewhat after the cycle, I continued to use box squats until realizing that I was dependent on the box for both confidence (not crushing myself during heavy attempts); I discarded the box, returned to a 350lbs squat, and worked up to 410-30 naturally but with hands-on spotting (my training partner having his hands on my core).

    Some of you may have seen the video of my squatting 410x3 (at a 168 bodyweight) below parallel, but with hands-on.
    As proud as I am of that feat, I have to "asterisk" it because I would not be able to go into another gym gym--alone--and hit those same numbers.

    The same principles have applied with the bench press, where with hands-on spotting I've been able to put up anywhere from 280x3 to 315x1-2, but again: without the spotter, I can't hit those numbers--fear and safety concerns prevent me from doing it.

    But I want to able to walk into any gym, any time, solo, and smash the same weights consistently. Training, in the end, is an individual journey. So if having a poor but spot-free bench press right now (relative to what I've been able to do) means that at some point down the line, I can smash that 315 without anything other than a lift-off: I'm willing to do it. Training is a marathon, not a sprint, and hands-on spotting was skewing that perspective for me, so now I'm set to do these things on my own.

    Granted, hands-on spotting and even supra-maximal training has its place and has contributed to my musculature and strength, there's no doubt about that, but at this point I'm comfortable enough with my own capabilities and physique to roll solo.

    Also notable, is that my training in the past has very rarely gone over 6 repetitions for the Big 3, with things like deadlifts being done almost primarily in triples. To have to move a weight consistently (5+ times) is a shock to my system, my CNS and endurance capabilities are not used to it, but shock is a part of growth, and I want to bodybuild rather than powerlift, so this is something I will need to acclimate myself to. Better late than never, and better on cycle than off cycle.

    So with all that being said, I'd love to hit 250x5 for 3 sets; my form had become strongly delt-dominant with my presses, so now I'm positioning everything correctly: pinching back the shoulders, ass on the bench, feet planted, pressing with the chest-lats-tris-delts (in that order) to get the development in my chest that I've longed chased after. If I could consistently hit the 100lb DBs for 2-3 sets of 8 afterwards, it would be icing on the cake--my dumbbell presses have always been stronger than my barbell presses, so I don't think thats an unrealistic goal.

    I will be posting weekly "summaries" where I recap my weights and repetitions for certain lifts, and then declare a goal for the coming week, which will try to be met to the best of my abilities.

    Consumption:
    Meal A: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate
    Meal B: 120g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 100g Egg Whites, 300g Broccoli, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal C: 200g Brown Rice, 200g Chicken Breast, Spinach
    Meal D: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 100g Egg Whites, 4 tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal E: 3 Whole Eggs, 2 scoop Casein

    Those are still very good numbers SP for your weight. We're pretty much the same size and I'm no where near those numbers, especially on squat. My squat is downright pathetic lol

    im also in a different boat. I have trained for years solo as none of my friends are nearly as dedicated to lifting as I am and a consistent training partner has never existed. It is difficult to really push myself on the big 3 in an empty gym by myself. Either way, I'm not a power lifter and I'm not as concerned with lifting the heaviest weights possible but I'd be lying if I said I flat out didn't care what I lifted.

    I'm a firm believer in the idea that discipline + consistency +time = success; it will just take us more/less to get to where we want to be depending on whether we have a training partner or not, whether we cycle or not, etc.

    When I first began training, I spent an entire year not training my legs, and its one of the things I regret the most. When I finally began to squat my 1RM was 185, so its been a long time but I just kept chipping away at what was on the bar.

    At the end of the day, one cannot squat 400lbs, pull 500lbs, or bench 300lbs with chicken legs or a small chest/arms/back, so that is what has encouraged me the most to lift heavy as frequently as possible.

    The numbers I put up concern me (as in, I think about them) greatly, hell I've even lost sleep over my squat numbers before; not so much as a proving point to other guys in the gym (none of whom really squat, I might add), but just as landmarks in pursuit of my own goals. Regardless as long as we keep hitting it hard we will get there sooner or later.

    Glad to have you in again sir; I forgot to note it in my PCT but I'll be running Anabeta Elite alongside my SERMs/AIs, it would be crazy not to!

    im also in a different boat. I have trained for years solo as none of my friends are nearly as dedicated to lifting as I am and a consistent training partner has never existed. It is difficult to really push myself on the big 3 in an empty gym by myself. Either way, I'm not a power lifter and I'm not as concerned with lifting the heaviest weights possible but I'd be lying if I said I flat out didn't care what I lifted.
    That last part sounds extremely familiar to me, other than sparring I don't have anyone as dedicated to hit my workouts or training regimes and although I'm not a power lifter myself, there are some days where I feel like I have to test my strength and go nearly all the way out. Obviously different training works for different people, some days on my high ass reps if I can get the same pump on low ass rep days, I'm happy with that, but most of the time on cycle, I go for volume and PCT is either 5x5 or just crushin it the fck up.

    I use the same approach; volume oriented on cycle and an all-out strength fest to keep gains during PCT.
    Training without a spotter was something I had feared after becoming acclimated with one, but slowly I've come to see the benefits of it.

    I hear ya on that, sometimes though you need that bit of fear to push to advance. Obviously, if it's gonna be life/death or a really serious injury, fck it don't hit it like that and take a small step back. However, working out with someone who's even half as intense as you, will boost you up and keep you going for more. I trained ppl here and there, but I prefer to weight lift solo as I keep getting situated to new states/towns every now and then.

    I'm falling in love with supersets, particularly for the back-biceps pairing.
    As I slowly get a sense of where I'm at with the power/volume orientation, I expect I'll see some pretty significant increases in the loads used for these movements with time. Growing my biceps is a goal of this cycle and I suspect this layout will facilitate that.

    I also need to get my damn post count up so I can upload my barbell row video, to give you guys a sense of where I'm at physique-wise.

    good stuff, love those supersets and when you're feeling up for it rack up some giant sets; those are always mad fun.

    well, if you're trying to get a vid up, either myself or anyone that doesn't mind, if you PM we can link it up; assuming that you uploaded it to youstube.

    Thanks for helping me out Sin; hopefully this gives you all a sense of where I'm at (along with my avatar).
    Once my post count is up, I'll update videos/pictures regularly.

    My style of row is not the strictest of form (at least, so far as the last repetitions of my heaviest sets are concerned), but my back responds well to it and I favor this style.

    no worries at all bro, if ya want I got you until your posts go up, just PM w/ vid links again and won't be a problem at all.

    I was gonna say up until the very last rep, how you semi jerked it back up and took a few steps forward, as long as you're back is feeling good then you'll be alright, but that's the only thing I'd be cautious of other than keep killin it!

    Yeah the last rep was not the prettiest; this was my final set with the 275x5, next week I will attempt 280x5x3 as part of a linear progression with the compound lifts. I'd like to get more pictures up as the cycle goes on. Hopefully I can smash last weeks lifts for power squats tomorrow!

    I'm pleased with today's lifts; progress was made on squats and I'm getting used to deadlifting afterwards. My legs are demolished.

    Unfortunately I woke up at 2AM last night, so my sleep issues have not been fully resolved, but I will keep trying to combat things as best I can (I got to sleep at 8PM daily to compensate; gains > social life).

    I'd like to get a better feel for what my Tricep isolation training will be, but after the squats/deads its difficult to muster the energy, I am pleased with the CGBP though.

    Thank you; its been quite a journey since that first P-Mag run.

    I'll have a video taken next power session. In the interim I'll PM you with a vid of my 410x3 squat (though its hands-on spotting so I have to 'asterisk' it, it's certainly below-parallel though and my spotter doesn't give all that much assistance).

    Rest Day:

    Meal B: 2 slices Ezekiel Bread, 100g Chicken Breast

    Summary: Week 1

    Thoughts

    Things are off to a good start; the Trenazone at 3mL appears to have kicked in quite faster than I anticipated.
    I'm pleased with the majority of my hands-off lifts (excluding BB Flat Bench) and will endeavor for linear increases in weight or intensity weekly.

    Lift Assessment

    Power Sessions:

    Session A
    BB Flat: 225x5, 230x5, 240x5, 240x5
    DB Flat: 80x8, 85x8, 85x8, 85x8, 85x8, 90x6

    Session B
    BB Row: 225x5, 255x5, 275x5, 275x5, 275x5
    Superset
    DB Row: 100x8, 105x8, 105x8, 105x8, 110x8, 110x8
    Isolation Curl (free-loaded): 45x10, 65x8, 75x8, 75x8, 85x8, 85x8

    Session C
    BB Squat: 320x5, 360x5, 360x5, 360x5, 360x5, 365x3/225x10
    CGBP: 210x5, 225x5, 245x5, 245x5, 245x5Volume Sessions:

    Volume Sessions:

    Session A
    BB Incline: 190x8, 190x8, 190x8, 190x6/140x10
    DB Flat: 65x8, 65x8, 65x8 (with twist), 70x8, 75x8 (without)

    Session B
    BB Squat: 225x12, 280x8, 300x8, 300x8, 300x8,
    BB Deadlift: 190x10, 230x8, 240x8, 250x8, 280x6
    --
    Supersets:
    DB Row: 95x8, 100x8, 105x8, 105x8, 105x8, 110x8
    Isolation Bicep Curl (free-loaded): 45x10, 70x8, 70x8, 70x8, 45x10


    These are the selected lifts where I will be particularly aiming for load/intensity increases; I favor the current setup and will retain this order of lifts for at least another 2 weeks, with the exception that my first Flat Pressing exercise during the Chest-Delt-Tri volume day may be shifted to DB Flat.

    Consumption

    Calories have so far been in the ~3200 range, which if my previously calculated maintenance of ~2800 is correct, is a 400kcal surplus. Given that I am young and that I'm engaged in some form of intense exercise daily, it may be wise for me to enter the 3300-3400 range but I'd like to wait until the Triumphalis "kicks" before I take advantage of that.

    Any thoughts regarding this?

    Side Effects
    Thus far, sides are largely limited to the Trenazone dosing and Trestobol; nipple sensitivity/puffiness, a spike in blood pressure (particularly after dosing TZ), and horrendous back pumps.

    Volume: Chest, Deltoids, and Triceps

    DB Flat:
    110x5, 110x5, 110x5, 110x5, 110x5
    100x6, 100x6, 80x8, 80x8, 80x8 (all with twist)
    --
    DB Lateral Raise: 10x20, 20x15, 30x8, 35x8, 35x8, 20x15, 10x20
    HS Incline Press (free-loaded; per side): 45x12, 60x8, 70x8, 75x8, 80x8/45x10
    --
    Tricep Press-Down, Reverse-Grip: 50x12, 80x8, 90x8, 100x8, 110x8, 110x8/50x12

    Solid session today; got in, hit it hard, and got out.

    Flat DB pressing has really given me the greatest contractions in my chest so I'll likely stick with it as a bi-weekly lift. As much as I'd like to have a big barbell press I honestly cannot claim it serves me better than the DB's so far as chest development is concerned.

    Meal A: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate
    Meal B: 80g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 cup Egg Whites, 4tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter
    Meal C: 300g Chicken Breast, 200g Sweet Potato, Spinach, Tomatoes, 30g Almonds
    Meal D: 40g Oats, 2 Whole Eggs, 1 cup Egg Whites
    Meal E: 2 scoop Casein, 30g Almonds, 4tbsp Powdered Peanut Butter

    I'd say you're on to something. My personal anecdotal response is the 3 cycles I've done, if I gained fat it was ALWAY week 1 or so and the compound hadn't kicked in fully. I felt some signs, energy, sides, hunger most importantly, but I wasn't actually growing any faster yet and thus stored the extra calories. I could have also gained fat from bumping cals too fast indiscriminately. Either way, I'd agree with your plans.

    Training: Legs, Back and Biceps Volume

    (or, The Tale of SPLocal vs. Back Pumps)

    BB Squat: 300x8, 320x8, 320x8, 320x8, 320x5/--back pumps incapacitating, could not lay down or sit without pain
    --
    Close-Grip Lat Pulldowns: 100x20, 100x20, 100x20
    Cable Curl, Rope Attachment: 80x20, 90x20, 100x20
    --
    HS High Row (free-loaded, weight per side): 70x8, 90x8, 115x8, 115x8
    DB Row: 105x8, 105x8, 110x8
    --
    DB Shrug: 110x15, 120x10, 120x10
    --
    And then, from the jaws of defeat:
    Deadlift: 280x8, 320x8, 350x8
    Leg Extension (Unilateral): 70x20, 70x20, 110x10, 130x10, 150x10

    Today was easily one of the most testing sessions I've ever had. If you compare the order of exercises here to Week 1's volume session, you will see that aside from the squats this entire session had to be done in reverse due to the horrendous, incapacitating back pumps I incurred during squats. I could not sit, stand, or lay down without being in pain, and I had to opt for body-supported lifts until things subsided.

    I did not want to let the session go to waste, despite smashing my previous volume squat record by 20lbs; so I decided to gut things out and complete my regiment. I was breathing heavily, drenched in sweat, and slightly dizzy but managed to get some heavy deadlifts and rowing in before I had to call it a day.

    I need to figure out a solution to this back pump predicament; these are easily the worst I have incurred in my cycling history, and I am not sure whether to attribute that to the Trenazone, Triumphalis, or both.

    On a more positive note, I met a former competition judge (did not ask what league), who encouraged me to compete and that I could hang with the guys at Muscle Beach--now I've never been to Muscle Beach so I don't quite know whether I could hang or not, but it was encouraging nonetheless.

    For now, I'm going to lay down, eat, and possibly slip into an iron-induced coma.

    Consumption:
    Meal A: 100g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate
    Meal B: 120g Oats, 1 scoop Casein, 1 scoop Isolate, 1 cup Egg Whites, 300g Broccoli
    Meal C: 200g Chicken Breast, 200g Brown Rice
    Meal D: 200g Chicken Breast, 200g Brown Rice, 300g Broccoli
    Meal: 2 scoop Casein, 3 Whole Eggs

    Bulk Taurine from Nutraplanet, take 4g or more at a time about 5x a day (always one before bed so you don't get leg cramps/charlie horse if you're prone) with a ****load of water, and take in extra potassium. Not just in your diet, supplement at same time as taurine. Drink that water like you are pregnant, I mean if you don't get 1.5 gal a day minimum you're not gonna make it - shoot for 2 or higher.

    I also used an electrolyte bcaa mix intra to help during workouts. If this stuff doesn't help a bit at least, you're doing it wrong

    I actually have NP's bulk taurine and I've been taking in about 5g pre-workout, but I will begin dosing throughout the day even with my pre-training meals. I'm currently drinking ~2 gallons of water daily so hydration is never really an issue, but I'll certainly start to throw around a bit more of the taurine. If I can't get these back pumps under control its going to be a long month.

    Wow, that is a lot of taurine. Luckily I rarely get back pumps but when I do I seem to get good results with just 2-3g taurine.

    I feel ya on that, I'm getting some massive calf pumps that are literally stopping me dead in my tracks, some days I hit up 6g of taurine on top of throwing in a couple potassium pills and a banana or so; that only seems to help for a bit, but I go jogging/running for a long time, kills me. Back pumps I feel them, but not nearly as bad compared to my calf. On top of that water, throw in a bit of gatorade/powerade for electrolytes or hit up what Hyde's using, I might be picking that up too.

    Taurine is the second most prevalent amino acid in the body (after glutamine, I believe). You can run it like candy all day w/ zero side effects - I know people have taken 20g at a time to no noticeable detriment (it was just wasteful obviously).

    Powerade Zero or Low-Cal G2 if you wanted the simple carbs pre or intra, an electrolyte/bcaa mix, extra potassium, eating the skins of sweet & regular potatoes, bananas, & lots of water & taurine thru the day most importantly.

    Rest Day:

    25 Minutes Interval Training: Elliptical

    Designated "cheat day" today; though not really a "cheat" at all, I consider it a cheat meal if I do not have access to the macros/caloric count for the food. That being said, I try to estimate things as best I can, and even then it is more of a "clean binge" of sorts.

    The attached image is a chicken breast, tomato, spinach, and mushroom salad from a local restaurant, Lucia's Cafe, and is easily one of the only restaurants I've been too where a salad is worth the price. The fact that I receive a full chicken breast and am not given iceberg ****ing lettuce is reason enough to return again and again. It comes with a vinaigrette sauce; my parents and brother also ordered salads but claimed they were "too full" to finish off the greens. Nonsense. A real bodybuilder is never "too full" for greens. So I finished theirs for them but probably incurred some more fats than I had wished from the vinaigrette/olive oil dressings.

    (For the AM crew, I can't post images, so you'll have to use your imaginations)

    Regardless, here are the estimated total macros for the day:
    ~3150kcal, 88g fat, 238g carb, 350g protein (I kept carbs lower with my earlier meals to compensate for the higher fat intake)
