Hey a few questions for those of you who are experienced users. Do the dry joints go away pretty quick after you start PCT?
Second question is, is a pro-hormone like Epistane supposed to help with recovery/soreness? Because I don't really feel like I'm recovering any faster than I do naturally. So I was just wondering.

It should speed up recovery/soreness. I was a lot less sore the first couple weeks and towards the end I wasn't feeling sore at all and this was after some intense workouts.
My weight is being erratic on pct one day I'm 208 the next 212 and now I'm 216 again which was what I was at right at the end of the cycle. Perhaps being out of whey protein is good since I'm not suppressing my appetite and actually eating more food.

Keep up the good work, man.
Hey Aaron, does your wife know sort of "supplements" you're on?
I'm trying to think what I can say when I start my cycle if my wife starts noticing certain body changes.

Hey, if gaining 8 pounds on PCT is "erratic" then I hope my PCT is erratic too lol

Just quick theory, i got 10 days left on cycle.... is it possible to switch to a cut in last 5 days? ive literally gained 14 pounds so far... but i wouldnt mind just cutting for 5 days before PCT... is that recommended? i dunno... right now im 196lbs at around 11% i wouldnt mind dropping to 10%... what you guys think?

yea i think ill do that... but ill eat at maintenance calories, add the cardio and not eat carbs after 8pm.... people usually say they still gain 4-5lbs while losing 4-5% bf on cycle so i thought i could gain 1pound of muscle and lose 1% bf in 5 days... since im doing pretty much 45mg epistane like Aaron

I forgot to say I'm from Australia lol... I wasn't even looking for epistane I just wanted a lean gainer.. And store rep was like "you want real lean gains, take this" lol... Good job on the stats Aaron I still can't bench more than 240... Hate my chest genetics even on gear

Week 6/Day 1 - Bench day
Bench Press: 135x10, 205x5, 255x5, 270x3, 310x2, 205x12
Incline Bench: 185x8, 205x5, 225x3
Dumbbell Chest Flys: 40'sx8, 50'sx8, 50'sx8
Burnout Pushups: 2 sets
This was yesterdays workout, and I hit another huge PR on bench, getting 310# for a solid two reps. Was SO stoked on that because I think I listed my bench at 275# when this started, and now I'm probably around 320#. I will max out next monday and we'll find out for sure, but those are some AMAZING gains for 6 weeks.
This morning I squatted 330# for a 2x2. My previous 1RM was 330#, and I hit it for 2 solid reps. I'm going to attempt to max out at 350# this saturday, which would be a 20lb gain 6 weeks. I'll be very happy with that if I can get it.
However as soon as I was done with my 5x3 on front squats, I got hit really hard with a fever, started shaking and got very hot and flushed. I had been feeling symptoms of sickness yesterday but ignored it. Now I have a 101.5 fever and am totally down for the count. Taking a ton of medicine though, so I hope I wake up feeling better tomorrow. On the plus side, I've been weighing 204# for the past few mornings and leaner than ever, so that puts me at a solid 11lbs gained. I can still eat luckily, so I'm gonna try and keep this weight on as much as possible. Will post again soon once I recover from this.

Since I took the last two days off due to being sick, I hit shoulders and back today. Still feel very sick today, drowzy, nauseous and congested. But I took a 5 hour energy and decided to hit it hard despite how ****ty I feel, because I want to get the most out of the last few days of this cycle. I hit a massive PR on shoulder press again, despite feeling crappy. Got 160 for 7 reps, which was amazing. Puts my 1RM projected at 190! Hit everything else pretty hard and felt good about it. I'm gonna go for a 1RM on back squat tomorrow at 350#, and then hit arms too. Still weighing 204, hoping to get to 205 before I start PCT.

Youre gonna hate PCT, cause you literally know you cant build any muscle for a little bit even if you beat your PB
I got no clomid but seems so far i dont need it, cause i went into the last week of cycle with libido way high... so hopefully same thing goes for you

Good work, man.
Sorry to hear you're so sick, that sucks.
Keep those calories high (even higher than before now that you're sick) and lots of fluids.
Hope you end the cycle on a good note.
