  1. my cheap ass really needs to invest in a camera. mine wouldn't hold a charge, so here's all i've got. the body lean isn't real, it's from the camera.

    That camera does some cool facial tricks though! Really, I can tell you've leaned out. It will be interesting to see how you do with the SD on a sub-cal diet. The only positive feedback I've ever really seen on the M5 was at 100mg+ daily doses. I get a better pre-w/o kick from andro.

  3. i've liked m5 the few times i tried it, but, in hindsight, i always took it for 2 weeks right after taking m1t. maybe what i liked was the m1t still kicking around in my system.

  4. It effects do seem to linger, for sure

  5. here's a quick update after 4 days on superdrol. my weight dropped to 183 the 1st day and has leveled off there. strength and energy are up slightly. i was doing arms yesterday and noticed a difference in vascularity. those garden hoses running down my biceps hadn't been there a few days earlier. that's it for now...slight changes only, but so far, so good.

    You were holding a few lb's of water, it's normal. Your going to love the SD My veins didn't enlarge per say, I actually grew new ones that weren't even there before! Or at least not pronounced enough to see. If you have strong training habits, good luck leaving the gym. You will just have to make yourself go at some point. BTW, I still have those veins, it's amazing stuff. I applaud you for starting at 10mg. That was my original suggestion, but few took my advise.

  7. quick update...i'm one week in to the superdrol, 5 weeks out from the first of two shows. weight is down to 182. no real positive or negative effects to report from sd. i'll give it one more week at 10mg before i make changes. i really feel like i've hit a wall today...no energy whatsoever. i worked out in the a.m. today, so that might be it. morning workouts and i just don't mix. i'm fairly happy with my appearance right now, just wish i felt better.

  8. nothing of significance to report right now. 10 days on superdrol (10mg) w/ no major benefits or sides to report. my weight is holding steady around 182. strength and energy are about the same. just to recap, i have a little over 5 weeks left on my pre-contest cycle. here's what i was thinking as far as the remainder goes:

    weeks 1 and 2-superdrol 20mg ed
    weeks 2-5- 1,4 ad (dione) 600mg ed
    weeks 3-5- 24mg (roughly) mohn
    weeks 3-5- 40-60mg m5aa
    weeks 1-2- clen (dose to be determined...planning to work up and then ramp down...probably a total of 17 days)
    weeks 3-5- eca stack

    dr. d (or anyone else if you are reading)...how does this look?

  9. Def up it to 20mg. Your working way too hard not to be getting the most of it. You just look underdosed to me but otherwise a good plan. Your energy, vascularity and endurance should all be up right now with the proper dose.

    Stay strong man, and keep it up! Stay motivated cause we're here bro!

  11. the 20 mg of sd seem to be doing the trick. strength and energy were up big compared to last saturday's workout. weight is 181. 4 weeks until the contest.

  12. here's another quick update. i'm liking the 20mg of sd. the results aren't mindblowing, but still pleasing. my weight is at 180...3&1/2lbs over the weight class limit, although i imagine i'll come in a little under that. i also started taking ephedra/caffeine 3 days ago (the more i read about clen, the less i want to try it).

    my "top end" explosive strength has been gone for quite some time..but still for as close to contest weight as i am, i can't believe how much stremgth i've retained, and how much energy i have.

  13. started taking 1,4 at 600mg today (200x3). we'll see if that has any effect.

    i had a pump in the gym today for the first time in what seems like weeks. i almost didn't recognize the feeling.

  14. 3 weeks out from contest 1. i've decided to hold off on entering the 2nd one until i see how things go in the 1st. they are both national qualifiers, but the 2nd is usually a lot tougher. no sense entering if i get killed in the 1st one. i won the middleweights at the first one a few years ago, but you never know how the competetion will be from year to year.

    my weight is 179. i feel like the sd is helping me keep more mass than i normally would at this stage...but again, the results aren't mindblowing. i do have to say that i'm not experiencing the exhaustion that i normally would. kind of feels like i'm cheating without all the suffering

    anyway, here are some pics from tonight. i was experimenting w/ pam as an onstage oil...so yeah, i'm kind of shiny.

  15. i stared working on posing tonight. i'm so lazy i haven't practiced at all. i forgot how sore i get at first. i have to say, i'm really pleased with where i'm at. i can't believe the fullness of muscles at this point. i'm usually so depleted.

    i know it's probably not the smartest thing, but i'm really contemplating finishing up these last couple of weeks with more sd, rather than switch over to mohn/m5aa. i'd hate to get off the sd and see my size dwindle when i'm this close to the finish.

    any thoughts?

  16. Wow, you're looking great. Nice striations in your trap: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/attac...achment****9256

    The mohn/m5aa would be a good cutter/hardener at the end as you planned, but you really don't appear no need that at this point. Your weight is so clean now that I would seriously concider finishing w/ the SD. It covers all the bases, and fat gain is not a prob as tight as your diet is. The choice is yours, but it wouldn't be a bad choice. SD is a good finisher and you won't have to fight acne close to the contest.

  18. i guess i'll play it by ear with the sd...i'm leaning toward at least one more week w/sd

    dr. d- what are your thoughts on adding lean extreme in to the equation at this point? i was thinking of running 150mg ed for the next 3 weeks and then the same dose for 3 weeks of my pct.

    It might not help with you on the orals already unless you were planning to really lower cals or lose a lot of sleep or something, but it sure couldn't hurt. They should stack fine.

    i just thought i might encounter some stress-enduced cortisol over the nex few weeks with everything i'm putting my body through. to be perfectly honest though, i don't completely understand cortisol or the mechanism behind lean extreme. as long as it falls under the "it couldn't hurt" catagory i'll give it a try. won't be the first time i used a shotgun approach with my supplementation.

    as far as my updates go...i'm 2 weeks out, and for the most part i feel like i'm ready. i need to tighten up in the lower abs, glutes, quads, and hamstrings...the normal areas for me at this stage. i am starting to see some striations on my glutes, however. my weight fluctuates between 178-180. i don't see making the class being any problem. if history repeats itself, i'll probably come in a few lbs under. i decided to stick with my original plan and switch from sd to mohn/m5. i'm starting at 24mg mohn and 30mg m5 and adjust as need be. i continue to take 600mg 1,4.

    i've been feeling really odd lately, and not in a good way. something i'm taking is keeping me up at night, causing anxiety and just giving me a generally bad feeling. i also feel like my bp is going through the roof at times. and oh yeah, i'm really mean. i have about zero control of my temper (which can be a rough thing when you've got a 5 year old running around...you have to take a lot of deep breaths). i checked my bp yesterday, and while it was higher than normal, it was not alarming. if i had to pick a culprit, i'd go with the 1,4. this is my first time around with it. i didn't notice anything like this from the sd the first 3 weeks, so i don't think that was it.

  21. Where are you with SD? The more or longer I dose SD I can get ALL types on CNS stimulation or even aggrevation. The first time I did SD I think my exact quote was" I was like a dinsour growling all over my house." The more I did, the better I felt, the more I thought I was a dinosour. My guess is SD is so powerful and new it has some majorly still unknown neurological pathways. My fav quote 'bout SD is the only thing that goes best with it is more. Just my two cents though...

  22. four weeks in. two weeks at 10mg and two at 20mg. i wanted to stay on for the next 3 weeks, but something tells me that's a bad idea. if i compete again (and i won't in the near future), i'll cut the overall cycle down to 6-8 weeks, up the dosages, and do a little more combining of ph/ps. i think 11 weeks total is just going to be too long. oh well, live and learn.

  23. I would have to say that Kyfa is the best devoloped guy I have ever seen who has posted on Anabolic Minds board.

    BEST OF LUCK with the contest!

    thanks, i appreciate the compliment. i'm sure there are a lot of guys here who look good, but not too many people post their own pics. you have to remember that i'm near contest shape, which is a huge advantage. you wouldn't want to see pics of me up around 220 (not a pretty sight). then again, it works both ways...i'm so scrawny in street clothes right now that you'd be hard pressed to tell that i workout.

    i do have to say that AM is a real hidden gem. lots of great info here...glad i found it.

  25. i'm a little over a week out now. i'm considering dropping the mohn and going back to sd. i feel like i'm not quite as "full" as i was a week ago. i'm a real head case around this time anyway. i go back and forth between thinking i look pretty good and thinking i look awful. i really don't mind the dieting but when i get this close, i get anxious and want to hurry up and get on stage.
