I've been working a combo of IA and DC's training styles over the past 5 weeks and have seen tremendous gains for a hardgainer...
I'm now heavier than I ever was and stronger than I ever was (including stronger than during my last fina cycle)
the slow slow negative reps and explosive positive on all my exercises have yielded exceptional results
I was saying that I wouldn't go on the juice again until I made back the gains naturally that I made on fina/4-ad cyp.... and I even peaked past that weight at times...
I started fina/syno cycle last wednesday, but even before then my strength had been going up and now its going up like mad
for the past 3 weeks on my flat bench i've put 5lbs on the bar and made the same amount of reps (or more) than the week before... and now this next week I will be adding 10lbs since my reps went up way high... (17 reps, then 18reps +5lbs, then 21 reps +5lbs)... getting kinda crazy lol... other exercises are experiencing similar results... like squats, shoulder presses, and rows...
(on rest pause sets btw)
i'm not as big as i thought i would be at 173lbs but i'm ecstatic that i've busted through a plateau that I've been sitting at since the beginning of the year... been sitting at 155-160lbs for a LONG time... 173lbs coming from a very frail small-boned 135lbs is quite an achievement to me and I feel I owe most of it to IA and DC for all their knowledge that they never directed towards me in particular but made publicly available for my consumption
i want 195lbs dammit... then 200lbs naturally gonna get there now i can feel it
