    Nah dude go for it, I'll take all the help I can get. Haven't experienced any back pumps at all yet. When did those start for you?


  2. The pumps started around week 3-4 and only killed me on back days and not on leg days since I didn't do deads or squats just leg press. I didn't get any lethargy everyone's body is different and you might not get the pumps.

  3. Back pumps are not fun. Period. Taurine, potassium and a shít load of water makes them manageable at best.

    I have taurine on hand. When I need to start using it, do I take 1-3g like an hour before workout?

  5. 1 gram is on the low side I'd go 3+ and go from there at least an hour before the gym helped. 4th day pct and woke up with red eyes could be from nolva. I'll keep you posted.

    Yikes...how much nolva are you taking? Was there any pain?

  7. Week 2/Day 2 Workout-Chest/Tri

    Bench Press: 245x6, 265x4, 285x2, 205x12
    Incline Dumbbell Bench: 65x6, 80x6, 90x6
    Pause Push-ups: 3 sets of- 5 push-ups, 5 sec hold at bottom, 4 push-ups, 4 second hold, down to 1
    Superset 3 sets: Dips to failure, Tricep press down 120#


    Today was a great workout. Got my previous 1 RM bench press for 2 reps (285). Felt stronger than ever. Got a HUGE pump in my chest and triceps, and I don't take pre-workouts. My left Tricep almost cramped up because of the pump I had, so I rolled it out on a barbell until it released. I weighed 197 this morning, so that puts me up 4 lbs. I'm already looking fuller and leaner. I'll post a pic up later today.

    20mg no pain just irritated. Read that nolva can affect vision.

    Is taken at least 5g an hour before you hit the weights

    10 days into cycle. 4 lbs up, feeling like I look a little more dry and lean. Digging the progress so far!

  11. In.
    Not sure how I missed this.

    I plan to run an almost identical cycle to yours later in the winter.

    All the best.

    Today's workout was great. Took 3g of Taurine just in case, and experienced no back pump at all. PR'd my deadlift on the 380x6. Felt strong. Did dumbbell rows with 70's instead of 60's and it still felt light. Had to make each rep a negative so I could feel it. Biceps got a HUGE pump from the partner curls, and it was all I could handle for Bi's today.

    As far as sides go, I've started to get bacne on my upper back. I am VERY prone to back acne though, as I've had it for years, pretty bad at some times. I've gone about 4 months now without it, but I knew it would come back once I started this cycle. Hope it clears up when I'm off tho. Scale said 197.2 this morning. Every single day my weight has gone up while I've been on cycle. So that's a good feeling.

  14. Good news been on pct for nearly a week and strength went up last week I did 225 for close grip bench and this week I did 245 for the same amount of reps!!! 10 reps then went down to 6 reps for last set and killed it by benching 135 to failure.

  15. Week 2/Workout 5 - Shoulders

    Overhead Press: 115x3, 130x3, 150x6, 130x9, 115x13
    Arnold Press: 60x6, 60x6, 60x7, 50x10
    Dumbbell Front Raises: 30x12, 30x12, 30x12
    Dumbbell Fly's: 25x8, 25x8, 25x8

    Metcon: 5 rounds for Time
    10 Dumbbell Snatch - 70 lb
    10 Chest-to-Bar pullups
    Time: 7:39


    Strength was unreal today. I've noticed moderate strength increases so far in my squat, deadlift and bench, but I've been seeing HUGE strength gains in my Overhead Press and Close Grip Bench. Today was the biggest yet. It was my 5x3 set today. 3 weeks ago, on my last three sets I got 145x3, 125x4, 110x7. As you can see, today I got 150x6, 130x9, and 115x13. That is a 1675 lb strength increase, which is ****ing ridiculous! That's like 3-6 months worth of a strength increase in just 1 week. I didn't expect the strength gains to be this good; I am ****ing LOVING it!

    Oh yea, and to top it off, I was up another solid pound today, 198.2. That's 5 lbs now in less than 2 weeks. Libido is shut down a little bit which I am fine with, bacne is barely noticable, and some lethargy, but a 5 hour energy takes care of that. This cycle could not be going any better so far, I am beyond stoked on these results!

    Here is a chart from the website where I record my workouts. You can see the line go up for my past strength gains. That was the pace at which my strength was increasing....Then look at today. Like I said, that's about 3-6 months of progress at least that I gained in 1 session. ****ing incredible. This stuff works like magic lol

  17. Week 2/Workout 6- Squat/Arms

    Squat: 6x5 - 265#

    Metcon:

    21-15-9 Burpees
    6:22


    Squats were brutal today with the 6x5, but I'm holding up to the volume alright. Made another Huge PR on Close Grip Bench today. Previous best was 225x5, and today I got 230x7. Loving the strength gains. Bacne is gone now, lethargy is manageable, and my balls look fine. Weighed 198.8 today. Almost up another pound.

  18. Sounds like episode treating you very well! I love the strength epi gives me! Any drying of the joints yet??

    LOL.

    It's hard to tell because I'm not sure what dry joints feel like. My shoulders have been bothering me more than usual, but its not a "I just injured it" type of pain, so I assume it could be from some dry joints. But I'm taking lots of fish oil and animal flex so it's really hardly bothering me at all.

  21. Solid strength and weight gains so far.

    Just be careful as the weights go up. Cuz your strength will be shooting up pretty quickly but your joints and tendons are behind the 8-ball, so to speak. (really focus on form and listen to your body)
    This is one of things I'll be really mindful when on cycle.

    Good advice. I felt my tendons aching particularly in my forearms.

    Yes, very good advice indeed. Might have to back the weights down and up the reps a bit then. My knees, shoulders and elbows are all starting to ache a little more.... :-/

    Back Squat: 6x3 - 265

    Man today was tough. Joints hurt, squats were really hard and I didn't feel strong at all. Got my first lower back pump this evening during my snatch session. Only good news is that I was up another pound today, 199.2. Hoping to see the magic 200 tomorrow. Feel very beat up today from all the volume. Gonna try and get 10 hours of sleep tonight...that will feel good

  25. im on same sorta solo cycle epi @ 30/45/45/45/45... on 2 week now and probably put on 10 pounds so far and my puberty gyno disappeared which was awesome ... gl with the rest of cycle.. im subbed for it... Also apparently i heard HCGenerate is good on cycle, but i couldnt get my hands on it... Are you using anything Aaron on cycle to prevent nut shrinkage lol? i got no clomid only nolvadex/Reversitol and Activate Xtreme for Pct.. so really got nothing to combat it during cycle, so far its good but just a precaution
