    Yours truly is looking at competing in an NPC show next year some time. It'd be a debut for me. I just want to prep until then. Any advice dude for a new competitor?

    I'll definitely have to look into that tracker for my next log. I've been maintaining a diet this pro bodybuilder at my gym told me about. Lost about 15 pounds in 2 months and I'm totally pumped to start the same stack you are doing in August. I've been contemplating doing low dose SD instead of Epi though. I have pretty bad joints as is. I'm not a huge fan of SD but I stockpiled that crap before the ban.

    Well if you are going to stay lean (under 12%) year round then keep lean bulking and keep your bf % under 15 or it might be annoying and painful to diet for the 12-14 weeks
    if you stay at 12% (with minimal cardio) then your pre contest diet should be pretty smooth cause once you add in cardio and play with your carbs you will lean out pretty quick
    i guess you just gotta find out how carbs effect your physique and your training, but i think you mentioned you were going to do a physique competition so you wont need to "bulk" and add a bunch of mass

    theres many online free trackers out there but in college we had to log our meals for a week as part of an assignment in a nutrition course so im used to it
    2 of my 3 friends who used SD had flare ups and lethargy like none other so be careful!
    they usually stopped at 3 weeks and did 20mg throughout

    Training: Shoulders (a lil traps thrown in at the end)

    Seated Dbell Press (shoulder felt good!)
    65x15
    65x15
    75x12
    85x8
    90x6
    90x6

    Seated Side Raise 3x35x15 (same lift that tweaked my shoulder last week so dropped weight a bit)
    compound set with Plate Upright Rows 3x45x12

    Leaning Side Raise 3x35x12

    HS Sho Press
    1st Set: Stripset 170x12 150x?? 100x??
    2nd Set: Stripset 200x7 150x?? 100??

    (shoulders dead)

    Rear Delt Deck 3x80x20

    Barbell Shrugs
    225x20
    315x15
    365x15

    Update:
    Lower Back is still tight, and no amount of taurine is helping LOL, but its just a minor inconvenience right now
    Shoulder held up pretty well today, only rare clicking and locking
    Best part of today was i didnt even notice my left elbow which usually gives me trouble on any pushing movements (9g fish oil + IML JointRx + joint formula in orange triad + lots of H2O)
    neighbors invited us over for carne asada and they ordered the UFC fights tonight (not really my thing, but hey... carne asada is my thing!)

    went to the farmers market and saw sweet potatoes (3 diff types) for $1.50/lb (and being the bargain shopper i am i got 6 lbs) and was excited as the grocery stores are usually $1.89-$2/lb
    BUT
    went to a new market for the first time today and... they had the same 3 types of sweet potato for .... $0.99/lb FML ... epic fail

    I think it'd be easier for me to stay lean year round, that way when im say 16-12 weeks out it won't be as bad as if I was above 12-13%. I could shred up real fast. Just gonna try and focus a lean bulk I think. Carbs are my killer normally. But once I drop them, I cut up so quickly

    Nice job with those shoulder presses! Good weight! I've done a few runs with SD and I always get great gains. I just hate the sides more than anything. With Epi my joints were sore but I still felt really good. I still look forward to seeing how the Epi/Tren treats you.

    As far as I can compare it to my last Epi run:
    Strength/endurance is increasing earlier (attributed to the tren)
    "ON" feeling in the gym and during some of the day came faster than epi solo (also dosing epi higher this time)
    Still waiting for the 24/7 ON feeling
    Lethargy hasn't kicked in (first week was obviously jet lag) but week 3 was where epi gave lethargy last time

    since I cant figure out how to organize the food log better from the online tracker I wont be logging the specifics anymore, just the overall macros
    if there is something fairly different for the day then ill include it in a note


    enough of the boring stuff!

    Tomorrow is time to move the doses UP.. YEAHHH
    EPI dose up to 50 from 40
    STANO dose up to 750 from 600
    TREN will stay at 90

    I'm not even pre contest and don't have a strict goal in mind and feel like I'm lenient enough while bulking and still I get crap from fat/ unhealthy/ out of shape / unmotivated family members or friends.

    Gonna hit chest later today supposed to be an off/cardio day but have some family events and an old friends brothers 21 birthday coming up so might have to take an extra day off this weekend.

    Elbow was tender but didn't give the sharp, knife pain that sometimes comes with chest or shoulder presses
    happy to go from 95lb dbell bench (last week, shoulder was hurting) to 105lbs... getting the 8 out without a spot was nice. gonna go heavier next week and try and get one of my friends to come spot me

    As far as I can tell from my solo epi run in the past...

    Epi Solo Before
    Increased recovery after first week
    Increased strength after second week
    ON / dominant well being feeling in 3/4th weeks
    Skin slightly more oily on forehead and armpit areas
    Slight/ if any lower back pumps at the end (but I was dead lifting heavier and more often)
    Pretty tight tib anterior on LISS incline treadmill walking

    Epi/Tren Now
    Increased recovery days into the cycle, can continue working out even after I've done more than enough
    MAD pumps in the gym that are stronger than my 4th week of epi solo already
    Lower back pumps came earlier in the cycle (only slight if any on epi solo towards the end)
    Tib anterior pumps are more intense (hill walk was almost painful last night)
    I'm hoping my strength increase (on the shoulder and dbell bench) is from my shoulder feeling better not the PH/DS (or else im lifting like a lil beeotch)
    I feel like I'm holding slightly more water this time around but I am bulking as epi solo was more of a recomp
    ON feeling and sustained pumps are kicking in (1 week earlier that epi solo) almost feel slightly jittery or excited after 2nd dose of PH/DS pre workout (without taking stims)
    Slightly Oily skin same epi solo (no extra acne or negative effects just a lil extra oil)

    Anyone that bodybuilds will attest to the truth in that quote! I can't tell you how many times I have to explain that I don't want a chocolate frosted doughnut or a greasy piece of leftover pizza. You always get that "Oh it's just one slice, it won't kill you!" or the "You are already lean and in shape you can afford a few scoops of ice cream!" It drives me insane.

    We don't workout this hard in the gym just to cover it up with a thick layer of fat. /endrant

    I love hearing this. I've been worried about adding the Tren in my next cycle because everyone talks about how much it tends to increase strength. Epi alone made my joints sore after the 2nd or 3rd week so I'll have to lift light and strict and pump fish oil and cissus. I also picked up some prami for the prolactin assassination.

    I have to say though that you are lifting some damn good weight. I hope you are keeping your form spot on to make sure to avoid any future injuries. I know I've lightened a lot of my lifts since tearing my rotator cuff several times. Not all of us can lift those big boy weights! Keep killing it!

    Had a family BBQ tonight


    Butterflied pork tenderloin and sliced garlic and raspberries and stuffed the loin and tied it together set rub of Cajun spice blend and a little chili powder on the outside
    Made a dried chili pepper raspberry glaze with sautéed onions as the dressing for the tenderloin!

    I love to BBQ!

    Also grilled 3 types of sweet potatoes and served them with a zest of lime and salt/pepper and fresh chopped cilantro

    Will post today's back/hammy workout when I get home

    I told you the lethargy would kick in!!! Haha imagine me....I was running over 150mg of EPI by the end of the 6 weeks. Like 10 pills a day. Same with the trenavar. Like over 120mg of it. I was killed on lethargy. Especially with my work all day, i sit in a supplement shop 8 hours a day by myself. I would constantly almost fall asleep because I was so out of it. Definitely throw in some ****ing caber for that libido cause by the end it'll be shot to hell.

    I can't even imagine 150mg of epi. My joints would be dust! I was getting dry on 45mg.

    Dosed my Prami a couple days ago to see how my body reacted and I can say that prami damn near puts me in a coma. If Tren gives you sleeping problems, grab prami instead of caber. Also supposed to increase gh output for 2 hours as well.

    Bump up the vitamin C,Echinacea , and some zinc gluconate! Don't let a common cold kick you out of a damn good cycle! Great job on your diet though BTW! Everyone of your updates excites me as I have about 15 days left until my cycle! Should totally do some before and after photos!

    How has the water retention been? Would you say it's impacting a lot or no?

    not that bad actually since im tryin more to put on size, ive come to grips that I wont be shredded again til next year's show (sometime next summer)

    back pumps have been come and go the last few days (maybe it took the taurine a little while to start working)
    tib anterior pumps very quickly on any incline

    Last night was VERY warm and in the middle of the night I went to sleep in the loft where it was cooler, I kept waking up a little sweaty and tossing and turning
    Hopefully it was just that my room was warm, not the Tren messing with my sleep!

    *Leverage Drop= starting with least mechanical advantage position and working towards a position with greater mech. advantage while keeping the weight the same and trying to get an equivalent amount of reps (ie. you are more tired BUT have greater mech advantage)

    *REVERSE Leverage Drop= starting in a position with greatest mech advantage and moving to a position with less mech advantage while keeping the weight constant (usually resulting in fewer or partial reps)

    Example from todays workout
    HS Chest Press 3 Seat Positions (reverse leverage)
    1. Decline
    2. Flat
    3. Incline

    My back was pretty spent and I decided to leave the Hammys for tomorrow with shoulders. Friday will be an off or cardio/abs/calves day and Saturday Ill be going up to the mountain for a day trip, might do some hiking or walk some trails. Back to Quads on sunday!

    Update:
    1. Lethargy is still around, but if I keep myself active then its not too bad, but the minute I sit down to watch a movie or TV or relax its lights out!
    2. Lethargy is in the morning/lunch time usually, not an issue in the evenings
    3. Only woke up once last night, the room wasn't as hot but still much hotter than the rest of the house, usually sleep with the door closed but opened it when I woke up in the middle of the night and left the window open for a little breeze through the room and I was good to go
    4. I feel a kind of "head high" 3ish hours after taking the first dose of the goodies like I took a few vicodin
