Day 18: Bicep/Abs/Traps
Bicep Dumbbell curls 3 sets
Bicep cable curls 3 sets
Leg raises Stading obliques with dumbbells 4 sets
Crunches 4 sets
Shrugs 3 4 sets
My back wasnt ready to work it out so I decided to do a accesory lifts day and go for hypertrophy and small muscle stimulation rather than strength. My BP was a bit high I could see my veins popping on my temples and a light headache during my workout. Legs are starting to feel somewhat better, still cant walk but at least its not as painful.

Currently at a hotel so I did what i could with the weights they provided. My leg is still not better but I have a bit more range of motion. Im getting more vascular in my arms in spite of having less definition in my abs. The BP issue went down.

Changed up the order and got a really different feeling after training. My chest felt almost too pumped I was having trouble sitting my arms comfortably in front of me (not sure if bad or not). My right shoulder joint was a little sore during the training im probably gonna have to deload next time if its still the same.

Good job bro.
How are the calories coming? You eating enough?
And getting solid work done in the gym?
You are on a big cycle bro, make it happen!

Great workout. However my left lat tendon is feeling strained so im probably gonna go for hypertrophy next time. Other than that doing good the pump on my shoulders and traps was just entertaining to say the least.
Ive been giving it some serious thought and I might go for another 4 weeks of cjc-1295 during my PCT to maintain these gains and help some of the tendon damage im probably gonna build up during the rest of the cycle.

Day 28: Rest
Finished my last cap of M-sten and started to up the dose of Epi to 50mg/day. Tomorrow im adding the 50mg anavar/day PW during workout days. My urine is looking darker today but im attributing it to my reduced water intake yesterday, ill be upping it today and see how it goes. Also today i developed a mild cold which i hope gets better by tomorrow since I need to hit chest.
So far my review on msten is very positive, wasnt ridiculous explosive gains but a pretty consistent strength and muscle gains. My shoulders really popped up during these past 4 weeks and hopefully the epi and anavar turn out even better. My last cycle had a 40/day epi dose ad yield me some pretty good results.

2 Questions real quick for anyone following my log.
1. Ive been forced to eat a lot of junk food lately (IE pizza) but im still managing to keep my macros and calories in the proper ranges through protein shakes. If im adding fish oils and multivitamins am I hindering gains? Im obviously planning to change this as soon as possible but for the mean time im stuck with this.
2. Today I still woke up sick (stuffy nose, sore throat, some body aches). I rested the past 2 days and im supposed to hit the gym today, should I just wait untill tomorrow or try to work out anyways?

Yeah, i decided to wait on it. My right rotator cuff is hurting on some angles so I guess the prudent thing to do is wait.

Day 30: Chest/Shoulder/Triceps
Bench press short grip: 135x12 155x12 175x9
Bench press:175x8 175x9 175x9
Incline bench press:135x12 155x10 175x8 155x9
Decline bench short grip: 155x7 155x7
Military press: 95x9 95x10 95x8
Rope tricep overhead: 100x15 110x13 110x12
Machine side raises 70xburn 4sets
Deloaded a bit to prevent any further joint problems and ramped up the volume and intensity. Completed all these sets in about the same time as usual.
I did feel some stregth loss however from the sickness and maybe from being off msten. I am now running anavar50/day and Epi 50/day.

Damn was that volume effective, I havent been this sore in a while. Also glad I ate over 4k calories yesterday. This however was prompted by the fact that I weighted myself yesterday to 178lb which means either my water weight is fluctuating like crazy or I managed to do some cutting over the past 4 days of no training. I do seem slightly more cut in the mirror when I flex abs which is cool.
Other than that there isnt much to report, so far in this cycle ive had no issues with anything related to the compounds im taking, its all been shenanigans with the PIP and now a cold. On the plus side my hunger is going kind of rampant. Im trying to keep a grip on it by eating as healthy as possible but I could easily go way beyond 4k calories a day if I wanted to.

Day 32: Abs/Quads
Several different abs exercises for lower/upper/obliques
Couldn't get to the gym today so I decided to make this my leg rehab day and save hamstrings for deadlifting when I do back. My range of motion is almost back to where it was initially however my quad tendons have some stiffness and pain when stretching with loads. Hopefully I will be able to dead lift properly tomorrow. I also foam rolled my legs to speed up the healing n whatnot.
As of right now my right rotator cuff is still tender which Im hoping wont interfere with my next back day. Other than that Im keeping my cal intake at around 3800 in spite of my hunger. This might come in handy once I have my 3 day rotation in place since upping calories wont be a problem.

Dbell row: 80x10 80x10 80x8

Lat cross 110x13 110x10 110x10
Standing dbell curls 35x13 35x12
Shoulder side raises 15x13 3 sets
Deloaded for back aswell. I felt really weird at the gym kind of tired/ wrong mood. All my tendons felt really tight which I think happened cause it was a particularly cold day.

Day 37: Leg/abs
Deadlift 255x12 255x9
Leg press 6 plates x12 slow reps 4 sets
Leg extension 115x9 slow 4 sets
Obliques 50x12 60x12 60x12 60x12
Squat rack calfs 185x12 255x10 255x12 255x12
Crunchesx burn 4 sets
I went in with the legs. My strength was fine but my lower back gave out after 2 sets of deadlifts. At this point my tendons and joints are feeling pretty fragile im guessing from the estrogen bolcking effect of epistane. I might get some DHEA to try to fix it.
08-28-2013, 10:30 AM
My pecs tendons feel stiff even though its been reating for a while. How should i figure if its good to go?
08-28-2013, 06:24 PM
Day 38: Chest/Shoulder/Tricep
Cable cross over: 60lbx12 slow reps 4 sets
Incline press: 85lbx10 slow reps 4 sets
Standing barbell shoulder press: 115x8 3 sets
Seated dbell shoulder press: 50x8 3 sets
Cable tricep overhead extension: 120x15 3 sets
Machine lateral raises: 70xburn 4 sets
Triangle cable tricep extension: 170x12 3 sets
I barely could do any chest, my left pec tendon, the one inserting into my shoulder felt really stiff and painful when applying force (really weird to me since last chest workout went just fine). Also my body in general feels really bad whenever I hit the gym lately. Its a lot like all my tendons are getting really stressed and not healing properly even though I haven't pushed the weight that hard at all.
Im considering lowering the epi dose and adding something else until i finish the 8 week period. Anyone know of a compound that would kick in quick to make it worth it and would help in this particular situation (with the tendons and all). I was considering LMG or trest but Im not sure if they kick in fast enough.

Even though many things arent going too well one thing is...my libido. I find myself attracted to almost any girl in my school (i know its just me trynna get it in tho). I even started talking to an ex ****buddy that i completely stopped talking to ( she cray cray). Oh well theres only one thing to do about it...

Great workout. My arms/back felt really strong and pumped. My joints are still having some troubles. My diet is paying off. Ive managed to see a very defined recomp in my physique. Ive gotten a bit leaner while putting on some good thickness, especially in my shoulders/arms section.
