Do You Ultra-Sten What I'm Saying?
Thanks to Iron-Flex for allowing me to try one of their products, Ultra-Sten. I had been looking into something like this for a while now and the time is set to give this a four-week run.
I want to bulk--lean bulk--while I'm on this. My base caloric intake is about 3400 calories right now. I will slowly build this up or adjust with increases as necessary. I remember last time I bulked: I had stuffed my face so much, I couldn't enjoy anything! When the Ultra-Sten kicks in, then I can dial it in better.
Doing Wendler's 5/3/1. Really like this program. Sounds stupid easy on paper...but once you've put yourself through the ringers...YEAH!
Monday = Squats + BBB
Tuesday = Bench + Triumverate
Thursday = Deadlift + BBB
Friday = Press + Triumverate
As far as aesthetics, I'd like to get as hardened a look as I can. I like the mass that I currently have, but I'd like to add on some more pounds and try to compact it all in, get dense.
Status to date:
I started yesterday, taking my first pill with my fat shake. I took the second one later on in the evening, again with another meal. Today, I took the morning one and the took the second one before working out, with my pre-workout shake.
I know it is only two days, but I can feel some aggression wanting to brew. NOTE: I am one, or used to be one, to get peeved, pissed, upset, angry, etc. quite easily, especially with stupid people and with so many around, you can imagine how often I was upset. I'd never lose my cool, but would get short and curt and make mean ole glares at people to tell them to effe off!
This morning I could feel some sense of temper heating up, but I was conscious of it, and, having lived with myself for as long as I have, I've gotten a better foothold of chilling the effe out.
I bring this up because it signaled to me that something's mixing. And if that's the case, then everything should pan out as I have planned.
Let do this!

Nothing major to report—as in, nothing groundbreaking or out of the norm. I had some headaches the first two days, one of which I had on Monday night and I thought it was going to turn into a migraine. Hadn’t had that happen in a while—getting a migraine that is, as I’m not prone to them. Yesterday I was good and so far today, I’m in the clear. I’m sure it’s just the body getting used to something this powerful.
During the day, I can feel a slight surge of an energy burst. They feel like sudden jolts—feels like a power plant that’s turning on for the first time.
Last night was chest and during the workout, every time I’d move or grab weights or whatever, other muscles that I wasn’t working directly felt pumped. In fact, towards the end of the workout, the whole body felt swole, as though every muscle in my body had been exercised. It was great! I didn’t get as much of a pump on the chest as I would have liked and I’m mildly sore today, but I attribute this to switching up my benching technique as I had not been attacking it correctly.
Overall, things are moving along quite nicely. Aside from the early headaches, I haven’t had any sides, though again, at four days, there might not be enough time to ensure I’m free and clear, not that I’m worried mind. You don’t go into something like this without planning and preparing.
I’ve planned my work and now I’m working my plan!

Great detail I'm liking the way this log is shaping up.. Headaches and nose bleeds are usually signs of increased BP, and it is common so no worry. Just keep an eye on it, just wait till your pumped 24-7

Yup, I know what you mean. I had figured it was simply a matter of getting used to everything and the good news was that they were not frequent, but the few I had were still bothersome, but did leave relatively fast.
I can feel a good surge of energy about to erupt. Like water simmering before it goes full boil.

When I took SD, I felt it immediately and usually experienced weight gain the first day. I will say however that I've always been a super responder to ph's in general when it comes to glycogen loading.
rr - have you experienced any muscle tightening effects? This is tell tale that water is being pushed to and retained by the muscle cell, which is what you want.
I would also recommend taking the creatine while on cycle to maximize gains. There is no reason not to do this imo. Creatine doesn't need to be cycled.

I was toying with the idea of using creatine during cycle, but had read to save it for PCT so I was going to go that route, but with it being brought up again, I think I'll go back to my original idea.
Speaking of creatine, my arms feel stout much like the first time I loaded creatine, way back in the summer of 1997. Granted, in 1997, that was after about two months of training as opposed to three days' worth.

People have different thoughts about creatine on cycle. Most think it's just not needed on cycle and just save it for PCT. Others worry about their liver and try to take as little supps. as possible to help limit stress..

It's the fact that creatine is anabolic in its own way, entirely different from steroids and is one of the three energy systems that the body uses to perform significant work w/ high intensity. The phosphagen system accounts for more than half the entire energy available during a high-intensity anaerobic set. So in my mind, when on a steroid, creatine is ever so important since it attracts water to the cell, increases nutrient partitioning and is a performance enhancer. With hormonal support, it drastically increases overall results. Just wouldn't want to go without it IMO.
BTW, where are the nudes, RR?

Exhausting. Form got a little sloppy on my final set, but other than that, I put in some work. Didn't feel tired afterwards, just relaxed.
When I train, I go as hard as I can, without being stupid and getting sloppy or cheating every which way. I'm pushing it, but afterwards, it seems like I didn't really push it that far. I'm a bit soar in the traps this morning, also seeing as I did shrugs on Thursday.
Nothing major to report. Everything is going well.

Weight's gone up, but I think most of it is water. This morning, the scale read 203. When I started, I was around 196. I look a tad pudgier in the belly range. I ate like crazy this weekend, so that might be part of it, especially last night. Yesterday, hunger started increasing--a great sign!

Where are the before shots?!
Appetite increase in an excellent sign.. Well and the 7lb gain!
