My First Cycle Log
Here is my cycle: (Started 1/15/05)
500mg of testo enanthate a week (Week 1-12)
30 mg of dbol (Week 1-4)
250iu of HCG (Week 4-14 @ 2x week)
Then add nolvadex and clomids for PCT.
Workout: (Can change if I travel or depending on the week.)
Monday: Chest / Triceps/Abs
Sat/Sun = Off Days
Run about 2 miles 5 nights a week.
Daily Diet: Cals: 4775 Fat: 130 Carbs: 472 Protein: 427 <-- Needs some work.
I hope to gain and keep about 20 pounds from this cycle. I took my first Dbol on Saturday along with my first injection. I did my second injection today.

I have a couple good workouts in so far. I do not think I am feeling to much from the AA's at this point except it seems I am getting some nice pumps after I am done. I also seems to have more energy but not sure if that is due to the cycle or just being excited about the cycle. I have gained a couple pounds so far and have been eatting like a horse.
I like to use flat bench press as my "benchmark" for improvement. My current max is 315 pounds.
01-19-2005, 10:15 PM
This seems crazy but I stepped on the scale today and it read 222 Pounds!! I had to go to a second scale to confirm it. I know most is most likely water weight but 12 pounds in 5 days!
Workout went good today except I seem to be getting some cramping in my shines now when I run. I normally like to run a little while after I get done. I think I will need to increase the water intake and maybe get some potassium or something. I found out my **** still works too when I blew a load into my ladies mouth earlier :P
I did my legs today and I got:
Squats 12x125 12x175 8x275 8x275
Smith Machine: 8x270 6x360 6x360
Machine Leg Curls (3 Sets)
Machine Leg Extentions (3 Sets)
Abs (Cable Crunches, Crunches, V-Sits)
1 mile Run
This sounds funny but I have been getting these tingling sensations in the muscle I am working. Looking good so far and I will post some measurements when I get time. My ass is sore from the last injection but not bad at all.
All for now.

I do not think my strength has increased that much yet but it has some. My legs are my weak point and it did seem easier today. I will know more later in the week when I hit chest and other body parts. I have not really kept a good log at the gym but mainly go off memory. I know my max on most things but I just started to track things more.
01-19-2005, 11:39 PM
you may want to try some taurine too for the cramping cnw carries it
awesome job on the weight gain ... even if it is just water lol

Posted something in the main forum. My nipples have become very sensitive and wondering about starting to take some Nolva now or giving it a day or two.
01-20-2005, 04:20 PM
I am not suprised you gained all that weight in 5 days, from what I understand, d-bol will do that to you. I think most people gain a pound a day on d-bol for like the first 20 days of a cycle.
01-23-2005, 12:53 PM
Weight: 225 ( Up 15 pounds for first week)
Sensitivily is no longer a problem so I stopped the Nolva and we we keep an eye on it. Did my third injection Saturday in my glute again and mixed it with some cottonseed oil. It does not hurt as much today after the injection like normal but it never was much of an issue.
Went to the gym Sat for workout on Chest and Tri's.
Decline BB Bench: 125x12 175x10 335x4 305x5 295x6 ( New Max for me. Up 10 pounds.)
Flat BB Bench: 275x6 275x6 275x5
DB Flat Fly: 90x6 90x6 90x5
Pullover's with Curl Bar / Close Grip Bench
Strength has gone up some more but it has only been a week. Attached a before pic. Need to get a tan but not bad for an old man
01-24-2005, 03:41 PM
Weight 226 (+1 Pound)
Going great so far. I always seem to be hungry and keeping the food intake high. Poker with the guys Saturday night and had a small amount to drink (Yes, I know bad to put more stress on the liver but hell it was Poker night!)
It seems when I workout that my muscles are sore again like when I take a break for awhile. Legs still a little sore from last week. I am not sure how long it typically takes for the test to kickin gear but I hope my strength improves more when I hit the gym tonight with Back and Biceps. I will post the results on Tuesday.
01-24-2005, 11:39 PM
Well scale at the gym today said 225 still so looks like I lost a little or just a little flux. My workout today went good doing back,biceps and abs.
Cable Pulldowns 12x120 12x130 6x170 6x170
Cable Rows 3x180 3x180 3x180
Cybex Lat Machine
Ez-Curl Bar 12x75 6x145 6x145 6x145 (This seemed much easier than normal. First time doing 6 too.)
Alt DB Curls: 65x7 65x6 65x6
Cable Preacher Curls
Todays workout went good and I can see a difference when I look in the mirror. Gotten a couple comments also. My 4th injection will be Tuesday and I think I am doing to try my left delt or leg. Leg workout Tuesday also so maybe delt is a better choice. Also cut down some on the cardio to help build more mass.
01-25-2005, 04:20 PM
Seems I lost a couple pounds... I can not really understand it. I have been eatting sooo much. For example, yesterday I had:
4 Eggs with 2 yokes
1/2 Cup Oats
Protein Shake with Skim Mik
1 Bowl of Raisin Bran Cereal
PB Sandwitch on Whole Wheat Bread
Protein Shake with Skim Milk
1 Can of Tuna
Whole Wheat Pita
Large Chicken Breast
Yogurt with Granola
Spaghetti Casserole (Pasta, Cheese, Sause, Meat)
Beef Soup with Veggie's
1/2 Cup Oats
Apple with PB
Hell, maybe that is not enough for me. Guess I should do some math. How much water do most of you drink in a day? Gallon?
Went to the gym today for legs too. Did squats, calf raises, machine leg curles, and leg extentions. My squats are getting better and I got 275 for 8 easy. Next time I will do a first and squat over 300. My forth injection is also coming tonight.
Overall I am happy except the weight thing. My pants still feel about the same so not much weight gain around the middle.
01-25-2005, 05:19 PM
the weight fluctuates bro, i wouldn't worry too much about it as long as your strength is going up. a tape measure would be better suited to judge gains IMO.
01-27-2005, 04:36 PM
I can really start to feel something now. It has been almost two weeks since I started my cycle. My strength seems to really be improving. It is funny how some days you go to the gym and can not lift **** and others you seem to be a beast. Today was a awsome. I did Chest and Triceps.
Flat BB Bench: 15x125 10x225 6x325 6x315 6x295 (Up 10 pounds on Flat Bench.)
Incline DB Bench: 6x95's 6x105's 6x105's
Incline DB Flies: 6x75's 6x75's 6x75's
Flat DB Flies: 6x95's 6x95's 5x95's
Skull Crushers(Ez-Curl Bar): 8x125 7x125 7x125 (I also do presses with the same weight in a superset.)
Cable Pulldowns: 12x160 12x160 12x160
RC Work with Cable
I felt great after the workout and really could feel the pump! My water intake as been increased and it seems to be helping a lot also. Plan on doing some measurements tonight when I get home.
01-27-2005, 10:06 PM
6 x 315 of flat BB bench? Wow, dude. That's impressive...you've got some strong lifts for your size. Keep it up.
What are your stats? (height, weight, measurements, etc.)
01-27-2005, 11:32 PM
Thanks Kwyckemynd00 My goal is to be able to bench 4 plates on a side but we will see how that goes. I would be happy with 375. I could only bench about 225 about 10 months ago but I have been really working to improve it.
Arms: 16" (+0.5)
Chest: 45.5 (+0.5)
Legs: 24 (+1.0) (Not sure if it is the same spot. This is the area I am really looking to improve.)
Waist: 35 (+1.0) (Thought my pants are tighter! Need more Ab work)
My shirts also seem to be getting tighter in the arms and chest too. I am happy so far with the progress.
01-31-2005, 09:34 AM
Saturday was arms and shoulders. The workout was good.
Smith Press: 135x12 185x10 245x6 245x6 235x6
DB Press: 70'sx8 80'sx10 80'sx10

DB Curls: 70'sx6 70'sx6 70'sx6 (Up 5)
Preacher Curls: 105x8 105x8 105x8
Today is leg workout day. Going to try and get 300 which will be a first. Overall I am happy with the cycle so far. My wife asked me if I was on Steroids... I denied it for the time being but she soon will be my ex-wife anyways. Saturday night I went out with a friend and had a couple drinks and they hit me like a ton of bricks. I have stopped drinking for the most part due to the cycle. Good news is I ended up at a hotel room later that night and my **** still works
01-31-2005, 04:46 PM
4 plates is my goal for the year, too. Try to get it before I cycle, but that probaby won't be the case LOL.Originally Posted by Chemist63
But, again for you size, those are great lifts. I'm maxing at not quite 350lbs 5'11, 220, 17.5" bi, 48" chest, 15% BF, 26" quads...(exactly 2 yrs training exp. bad diet)
I need to throw in some abs, too LOL....but, abs are not fun!
Good luck on the rest of the cycle. I'm stoked for you! (And, you're getting me excited to start my first cycle )
edit: LOL @ hotel room! I've never done that....although I've done it in a lot of bad places and situations
02-01-2005, 10:01 AM
Weight 224 <--- Does not seem to want to move..
Yesterday was leg day for me and abs. I made my goal and squated 300 for the first time. In fact, I did it six times. I was always one of those people you see working there upper body and forgeting the bottom half.
Squat 125x15 175x12 245x8 300x6 300x6
There is no doubt that my strength has increased. My nips are a little tender again and thinking about taking some more Nolva again but will give it another day. I am also planning on starting my HCG this week instead of week 4 at 250iu (2x) per week.
It sounds like you are putting up some nice weight too kwyckemynd00. Will be interesting to see what happens when you start your cycle. The hotel thing was a riot actually. Two women where in town for a seminar and the both where in the same room. I was doing one of them and she was like you need to tone it down. It was not long before she was the noisy one. Just to bad her friend did not join the action.
02-02-2005, 05:57 PM
Weight: 225 (Woot Up one pound!)
Did another injection last night in my left glute. It kind of hurt more than other injections and today it was hard to sit for long periods. It does seem to be getting better as the day moves forward. I did Chest and Triceps at the gym today.
Flat BB Bench: 15x125 10x225 1x355 (New Max) 6x335 (Needed a spot on last one) 6x315 6x315
Decline BB Bench: 6x275 6x275 5x275 (Flat BB took it out of me.)
Flat DB Flies: 6x100's 5x100's 6x95's
Skull Crushers(Ez-Curl Bar): 8x125 7x125 7x125
Cable Pulldowns: 12x160 12x160 12x160
I was seeing stars on the flat bb bench when I got done and I think everyone at the gym heard me yelling. Workout was really good.
Week #2 picture attached for my future progress. (Stop laughing!)
02-03-2005, 02:24 AM
If your weight is stuck, add a tablespoon of olive oil a few times daily. It is easy extra calories. You are making good progress and I think your bf% is lower than 18%.
02-03-2005, 05:15 AM
Lookin' more thick already, chemist! Awesome!
335 x 6 and 355 x 1? I'm sure your max is higher than that, unless you're very slow twitch (I'm not repping 295 that many times and my max is just shy of yours...)
I agree with size you may be closer to 15-16% than 18%. Lookin' great! Hope to see even greater gains yet!
Keep it up!
02-03-2005, 04:22 PM
I will give that a shot and see if it helps.Originally Posted by size
I just started to be able to get 335 for 6 reps in the past couple of weeks. I am sure I could have did more than 355 but did not want to burnout before doing all my other chest stuff. Next chest day maybe I will give 365 or 370 a try. A couple years ago I would not have imagined lifting that much.335 x 6 and 355 x 1? I'm sure your max is higher than that, unless you're very slow twitch (I'm not repping 295 that many times and my max is just shy of yours...)
This would even be more amazing in that attachement

Weight: 226 (Up another pound)
I have been feeling a little bloated so I have started to take Anastrozole at 0.5mg EoD. My appitite is not as good as it has been and I can see the bloat a little in my face. I did Arms and Back today at the gym:
Cable Pulldowns V-Bar 12x120 12x130 6x170 6x170 6x170
T-Bar Rows: 6x165 6x165 6x165
Cybex Lat Machine
Ez-Curl Bar 12x85 6x145 6x145 6x145
Alt DB Curls: 6x70's 6x70's 7x70's
Preacher Curls: 10x95 10x95 10x95
Also took some measurements:
Arms: 17.5" (In the past I was measuring them not flexed and read I should take it flexed. So, I have no clue what I started at here.)
Chest: 46.0" (+ 0.5)
Waist: 35.5" (+0.5) (Think this is due to bloat...)
Great cycle so far except the bloat thing now and I have been getting leg craps when I run that I did not have before. Feels like shine splints almost.
02-04-2005, 10:19 PM
That's insane, huh? LOL. I've seen that one before.Originally Posted by Chemist63
Oh, 17.5" flexed, huh? That makes more sense. LOL. I was gonna say, with 16" arms, I don't think I've seen anyone bench near that much....but, you're still damn strong! keep it up, bro!
02-04-2005, 10:21 PM
02-04-2005, 11:04 PM
That 1000+ pound bench press is totally insane. I never would have thought that was possible. I just can not wait until I am finally done with my current wife. This was my third marriage and my last I found out I am going to Germany at the start of next month for about 6 days. I meet a cute German women at a confernce I was at recently and she wants me to pay a visit. I will be off the dbol but still taking the test for awhile longer. I can not see me taking it with me so I will have to give myself some extra juice before I leave.
I also have started taking the HCG early at 250iu 2x a week. Why let those babies shrink up at all if I can help it?

Did my next injection on Saturday in my glute and went to the gym Saturday to work on my legs and abs. The squat rack was impossible to get on with some other idiots taking there time using it. This is one thing that makes me want to setup some stuff in my house. Some people use the gym as social hour. Ended up using the Cybex Machine.
Cybex Leg Press: 225x15 275x10 315x8 360x8 380x6
Did not have much time to workout since I had to watch my kid this weekend also. Going to start doing some more cardio today and my bloat problem seems to be under control
I am thinking about increasing the dbol from 30mg to 40mg for the last two weeks since it does not seem to be causing much of a problem for me. What do you think?
02-07-2005, 02:32 PM
i say bump up the dbol to 40 if you aren't really having any sides from it
and good move on starting the HCG, why force yourself to fix something later when you can keep it from breaking in the first place
