    Bodyweight: 248


    11 Work Sets

    HS High Row 200x10, 250x7, 260x6
    Curls 60x7, 55x2x6
    Chinups 248x3
    HS Low Row 220x8, 260x8
    EZ Reverse Curls 90x10, 90x6
    Lat Pulldown 180x8


    Strength is up. Once again, just a little bit. Nothing too spectacular, though I am now in PR territory on most of this pulling work.

    Appetite is also up somewhat. That is probably what is responsible for the small 8 lb jump in bodyweight I made overnight. Will have to take some measurements.

  2. Definitely some significant strength gains over a four day period.

    CGBP 185x10, 205x6, 215x5
    HS Incline 80,100x6, 115x6, 120x5
    Lateral Raises 35x9
    Tate Presses 45x8, 50x6
    Pushdowns 45x6
    HS Shoulder Press 150x5, whole stack
    Pec Dec 2 sets


    These are the sort of strength gains that I like. They come on so very fast. I am hoping that by going 6-8 weeks on tren I can keep a bit more of it than usual. I find it far easier to add weight than reps. Even now trying to get extra reps on some stuff is like pulling teeth. Definitely stronger on Tate presses than I have ever been.

    Joints actually feel really good with all of the CNS stimulation. No noticeable bloat. Good muscle hardness and vascularity. Recovery is quite good. Laying off the lawn care work has been a big help these last couple of days.

    Appetite is unfortunately coming back with a vengeance.

    Bodyweight 243


    Calf Work 5 sets
    Leg Extensions 4 sets


    Elliptical 26:00, 75-85 rpm, 400+ kcals, <165 heartrate

    My endurance was way up for some reason. Heartbeat was down by about 10-15 beats per minute. I had no problems running the elliptical over 100 rpm if needed. All the buttons started beeping red on me. Never had that happen before.

  4. May 31, 2005


    Conventional Deadlifts 275x5, 315x5, 335x3, 325x5
    Low Row 200x9, 260x9
    Timed Holds 405x2 sets
    Shrugs 110x12


    Elliptical 20:00, 75rpm


    Strength is up on the deadlifts. Lats and Bis weren't quite recovered from Sunday's session, so I chose to hold off and make it a light day.

  5. updates? I notice your weight is down? Strength is up though, so that's good.

  6. Thanks for checking in Brogers. Weight has actually been really stable throughout the cycle. I think 248 or so was as large as I got. My weight normally flucuates a lot more than this. Tren is keeping me pretty dry and muscles full.

    I am going to make a concerted effort to drop calories slightly. Fat loss has been minor so far and likely due to all the physical work and training I have been doing more than the Tren. It is normally really tough for me to lose weight on any kind of anabolic.

    Elliptical 20:00, 80+ rpm


    Endurance is still nice and high. Still sweating a lot in the gym as usual. No noticable night sweats yet however. Seems like most folks get them on Trenbolone. Not me so far. Blood pressure feels pretty high, but not as high as it felt on a major bulk.

    I'll give an update at the end of one month on Tren regarding bodycomp changes. So far they have been modest. A bit more muscle (not a lot), a bit less fat.

    pardon the ignorance, but what does B6 do while on tren again? On a side note, I think he has to to with progesterone/bitch tit issues, and I have used deca, eq, sust, dbol, etc... without AI and never experienced any gyno or sensitive nips....

    I am definitely not the best person to ask about what it is supposed to do chemically. But from my understanding it basically helps with progesterone gyno issues, but there isn't any conclusive evidence that those doses will help humans. Check out the reference rhino posted on page I of my log here. Should give you a good lead in.

    On a side note, you are really lucky not to have problems with the gyno. Regular test gyno is easy enough to prevent but prog gyno can be a bit tougher. It costs money to prevent either way you look at it. Frankly I can't tell that vitex is doing anything. Arimidex is helping to keep almost all discharge away but there is still pain and some hardness but not pea sized lumps so far.

    I think I may make a few minor adjustments to my workout. Just to switch things up a bit. I am definitely going to focus on being able to do more chinups. Next workout will be a squat/leg day. Need a day off from deadlifting.

  11. Any big changes in the mirror you can notice?

  12. Brogers,

    Not yet. This cycle is going to require some patience on my part. Running a close to eucaloric diet, the changes sure will come slow. I'll be lucky if I get about 5 lbs muscle over the whole cycle. That will be harder to notice in comparison to my last 50 lb weight gain this winter. Fat loss will be mainly dictated by how hypocaloric I can stay and not by the purported thermogenic benefits of Tren. I can see why many people say 3-4 weeks isn't anywhere near long enough to realize major visual changes just from being on Tren.

    The biggest changes so far have definitely been in my training ability. Both endurance strength and limit strength with the weights.

    Elliptical 60:00, 65 rpm

    Can't say I didn't do my cardio on this cycle! This was really easy for me, but it got to my knees pretty bad once I hit an hour on the elliptical.

  14. June 5, 2005

    Leg Day

    Squats 135x8, 155x8, 175x8, 195x7, 175x8
    Leg Extensions 60,70,80x20, 90x15


    Elliptical 35:00, 525 kcals, 75 rpm


    Yes my top set of 195x7 on squats does represent a significant strength gain =D I am quite weak overall.

    HS Incline 80x8
    Pushdowns 30x10
    Tates 40x11, 40x11
    Flies 45x10

    Did my workout after cardio. Strength was down a bit as a result. I did switch up the movements I normally train and tried to keep the rep range higher.

    Cardio Edit

    3-4 hours Lawn Care Spread over last 48 hours

    I injected some prop over my last five shots and I think this is what is responsible for the weight jump. I am not complaining. Definitely not gaining fat.


    HS High Row 200x6, 240x6, 260x5, 280x4

    Elliptical 60:00, 70 rpm

    My right knee is giving me some hell. I may have to start incline walking for awhile and do less elliptical work.


    I am definitely still gaining strength, although at a much slower rate than I was initially. I came pretty close to getting another rep on curls, which is tough for me. I feel close to my natural limit on that lift. 280 felt heavy on the high rows and I lacked some rom. Chinups were hurting my elbow joint again, so I backed off after one set. I still need to do Hammer Strength stuff to feel really good. Training more like EOD still seems best for me, whether I am on or not.

  18. Great log Cardinal. Very detailed and interesting. Keep up the good work.

  19. Thanks Redspy. Glad it has been of some interest and hopefully is useful as well.

    AAS Notes

    I injected a bit more frequently over the last three days, effectively upping my dose. I experienced more or less what I expected. Last night I had a good case of insomnia and ridiculously minor night sweats (they have been hardly noticable for me throughout). Until that point most all of the side effects of tren had vanished except for the strength gains and nipple hardness. I am interested to see if I accrue strength faster now at a slightly higher dose. I suspect I will.

    I am also still dosing prop with the Tren now, so that is what is keeping my bodyweight up. It definitely gives me a much softer look than running tren by itself. I would definitely have a very hard time dropping bodyweight if I ran tren/prop together the whole time. I would have to starve myself to some extent. Running a eucaloric/mildly hypocaloric diet like I am would not at all cut it for weight loss.

    Gonna rest up. Got some deadlifting PRs to set tomorrow!

    My form broke down quite a bit on the second set of deads with 335. Still getting stronger though, so I am happy. Cardio has felt quite good except for having knee problems. I got a x-large knee brace and am going to try it starting tomorrow. Overall, I am having almost no arrhythmic heart beats now and I think the cardio has been helping out somewhat.

    It's definitely interesting, my next cycle will consist of test cyp and tren e. Although they're different esters it's interesting to observe the positive effects and side effects.

  23. Wow cardinal just checking in, you have put on some serious mass since you started cycling here at AM...

    Great log here (they always are), I will check out your bulker log I missed ASAP.

    That is definitely a good plan. I don't know if I am the best example for Tren. I sure have experienced far fewer side effects than I expected and than I usually do. I am happiest about not getting any hair loss from it. I think I probably would have had to stop if I did (or go bald).

    I think Test E/Tren E would be a perfect bulker for me. I am definitely going to stock up on Tren E first chance I get.

    Thanks for stopping by cr4ytonic! Yep, I put on about 50 not so clean pounds on my first bulker. Definitely satisfied with it and am much happier now at 250 than I was back at 180 before cycling here at AM.

    I can't wait to bulk again. This log will probably be my first where I haven't tried to put on muscle mass substantially. It has been a really pleasant strength cycle so far though.

    After this cycle, I'll probably continue to slowly cut naturally until I get to where I can reasonable bulk again. Then it is Tren E + whatever else hehe.

    I am up a clear 5 lbs on all my pushing work. Strength is increasing at a rate about half as fast as during week 1-2. That is still plenty for me.

    I am definitely noticing more night sweats. I woke up this afternoon after a nap with quite a bit of wetness around my neck. For better or worse I think I'll keep the dose a bit higher injecting 75mg tren every 24-36 hours for awhile to see if I notice more thermogenic benefits. I must watch it though, as I may run out too fast that way. I'd like to make it a full 8 weeks if possible. I'll have to use a bit of prop to make it that long and I am definitely still losing a lot of hair when I include the prop.

    Walking/Hiking 135 minutes, moderate pace


    Well, after taking stock of how much Tren I actually have, versus how much I would like to have, I seem to have come up a bit short (part of my **** is mixed with prop unfortunately). So I have decided to add 30mg of Superdrol per day for the remainder of my cycle and keep the dose of Tren fairly low (a bit more than 75mg eod). I seem to handle both compounds fairly well, so I don't foresee a big problem here. No doubt I will get a strength boost from the SD.

    The prop I have injected over the last few days sure has made me look a lot fuller and better overall. I really need to work on a way to limit hair loss. If I could that, I think I would be set with prop.

    I woke up with a good deal more muscle hardness. Arms measured about an 1/8th inch bigger and the skin was a lot tighter. SD sure is a nice compound for how quickly it starts to work and how good of a cell-volumizer it is.

    I am running a short trial with hoodia to see what sort of an effect it has on my appetite. Given its somewhat foul taste, methinks it may prove a decent suppressant.

  30. Nice log Cardinal. Cycle looks like it's going well. Keep up the good work.
