But I'll update you guy on any strength increase/decrease next week...

Good job Iron. I'm having about the same sides/gains/ect on my PP/Fini cycle. I was reading back on some of the posts higher up in this page and was noticing the similarities in the two cycles. You're right about the extra 10lbs of mass. It really DOES make a diff. Clothes fit differently, people look at you differently, more glances....just little things like that. I'm really diggin' it so far! Keep up the good log!

Quick update after day 4 of my PCT, strength is static. My weight has not changed and is still 205.
The beginning of my workout yesterday sucked because I was so tired from the basketball game the night before, but it ended up being a really great workout...5th set of military DB press of 95 x 6 with two negative and then immediately jumping down to 45 x 6 with no rest in between and a my 5th set of shrugs of 455 x 6 then two drop sets with no rest of 315 x 8 and then 225 x 8 where the highlights of the day...
But i did cramp up at the end when i was doing some ab work on the swiss ball. It wasnt a water problem, since i still drink about 2 gallons a day, i had a bannana about an ohur before my workout so it wasnt a potassium definciency, so it must be the Phre cycling thru or out of my system.
But still, its awesome how some of your worst workouts can turn into your best.

I think that is a pretty fair call, it doesn't look like you have had anything suspect on this cycle, and you already have the Novla on hand..Just wondering...

PCT Day 6:
Just got back from the Docs...just a routine checkup everything was great, minus a very slightly elevated BP of 134/77, which my doc tells me not to worry about because its early in the morning. A friend of mine took is yesterday and it was 124/69 so thats a fair assessment.
My weight is sitting pretty at 204lbs. Today is my last day at 40mgs Nolva/ 3 Retain/ 75mgs Rebound. Tomorrow the break down will be 30/3/50.
No signs of gyno, my BF has gotten slightly lower. Any kind of shrinkage my boys may have sustained has already been alleviated...
Quick side note, its easier to take the nolva nowadays...you get used to that acidic whole grain alcohol taste quickly...
03-27-2006, 03:33 PM
Yeah, you can always cap them too..It takes like twenty minutes to do a whole bottle, after I smelt mine I capped two bottles for my upcoming cycles
03-27-2006, 04:08 PM
You can cap the nolva? I just figured that was pretty impossible because of the alcohol? Did you use a cap em quick? And what type of shell did you use?
03-27-2006, 09:59 PM
I bought extra thick gelatin caps, not the cheesbag skinny ones...I didn't use a cap quick, didn't have to the dropper is small enough it fits right in there...Make sure you buy a syringe/baby dropper with cc's on it so you know how much is going in each pill..The caps I bought were pretty large so they held quite a bit, and I just put different amounts in each one..

This is genius. Make capping Tamoxifen a sticky. Reps son, I say reps to yooooou.Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier

PCT DAY 9:
Weight is down to 203, a little depressing since I have lost 3lbs, but the strength is still there, which is great. I think the big test on the strength keeping factor for myself will be friday and saturday since they are my chest and leg day, respectively.
No signs of Gyno, still.
I think the reason my weight is decreasing is because I'm firming up, no more bloatedness at all. I also added in minor amounts of cardio post w/o and things seem to be coming along well. I'm just praying that i don't have to mess with my diet much to keep myself above 200...I still stick to what I posted at the beginning of this log.

Nah, I'm lazy. I don't know of any stores around me that would sell the extra thick gel caps. Where did you pick yours up? If I could find them around here I'll do it this weekend,Originally Posted by Mulletsoldier

Any nutrition store or pharmacy should have them there, but that is where I got mine...It only cost 5 bucks.
03-29-2006, 12:12 PM
Oh, and have you decided on your next cycle Iron? I think I am going to go with an SD standalone, but I am so tempted to throw some TRN in there..
03-29-2006, 12:35 PM
03-29-2006, 12:52 PM
Mullet...yea, a SD 3 weeker, I've never used it so i'm going to run a standalone.
RM...yea, i understand, what you said just seemed to have weird undertones to it...haha, my bad

PCT Day 11:
My weight has gone back up to 204...
My BF is looking more like 9% maybe less, probably not less...but still good enough to me...
Yesterday was my day off and tonight will be chest and tomorrow legs...I'm going to post some numbers up after this weekend of the lifts...I feel good though...strong and all that...
After this weekend I'm just going to post up a final report after the PCT, if you guys wanted it...???...

PCT DAY 14:
So, have you ever screwed up your days at the gym? I was supposed to do Chest Friday, Legs Saturday and Back yesterday but for some reason when I got to the gym on Saturday I ended up lifting back and halfway threw the workout i realized it and kicked myself...plus I went golfing yesterday so i ended up taking Sunday off.
But I said I would post some lifts and I can post my bench, which is still going up a bit, 285 x 3...I swear I can get 315 x 1 (i'll try it next chect day).
Everything is going well, there has been no change in my libido since coming off the Phera. If there was any shrinkage, it's gone...
I was at 202lbs this morning, and I'm happy with that. I kinda miss the mild-euphoria you get while on Phera, but I'm not down or anything.
The retain caps do seem to be doing thier job, as I don't see any cortisol on my body. My bf has stayed pretty stagnant at around 9~10 %, just where I like it.

QUICK PCT DAY 15 UPDATE:
side note...never ran E/C like I said I would, but things are working out nicely without.
04-04-2006, 05:15 PM
Yes! Post your final numbers. I'd be curious to see where everything ended up at.Originally Posted by PumpingIron
