It feels like my blood pressure is a little high, and tests at cvs confirm it - "prehypertension." Is it possible its false cause my arms too big? I'm already doing cardio, and in a study where I donate blood, should I increase my celery seed dose from 150mg/day to 300mg? Maybe add some hawthorne berry?

I was really surprised how hard dumbell bench is, hadn't done that in years. Had to drop the weight way lower than I thought I could do, no where near my regular bench.

Sides: oily skin/mild acne(seems under control now), increase in blood pressure, and I'm told I seem a little bit more aggressive and tempermental - but I think that's cause I'm actually kind of depressed angry and stressed out, and would be like that anyways. I also have hives, not sure if its related, but I think its the accutane.
Libido: about the same, so good. Volume seems higher, and I got my girl knocked up so I'm not shooting blanks.
Nipples: I'm watching my right nipple cause I've always had tissue under it and its gotten itchy a few times - could just be the hives. They don't look puffier than normal, but I have the problem of scar tissue from having them pierced when I was younger.
Strength: every time I hit a weight and can do out the full 10 reps on the last set I've been able to do it the next workout. I also feel fully recovered long before I do a workout again.
Joints: feel fine, but I get this dull soreness in my left shoulder and bicep. Not real bad or painful, but I don't have the same feelings in the other arm.
Size: I'm up 12 lbs, I get more vascular every day, and I'm looking really swole. I am a little puffy, but I don't think I'm putting on much fat cause I'm getting some more striation.

You stats look awesome I did similar cycle last year gained 30 pounds of muscle with no side effects nothing beats an old school cycle of test and deca.
04-27-2012, 04:41 PM
Ya I'm really liking it so far, my biggest complaint about cycling has been acne, but its fairly under control right now. I was really afraid of libido issues, but caber seems to be working just fine. I see myself running deca again at this point.Originally Posted by sal

I wouldn't worry too much about libido at this point in cycle what are your post cycle anti e 's I used clomid didn't see drop in libido or deca dick. Acne should not be an issue it should go away after your cycle is over un less your prone to ache.
04-28-2012, 11:19 PM
Well I got acne half way through last cycle, and it stuck around through pct. But once I took accutane it went way down after a couple weeks. I hear that's fairly permanent so I'm not too concerned anymore. I'm taking hcg right now, and caber. Have exemestane on hand. Pct will be torem and DAA, and maybe formadrol again, plus ghrp and igf.Originally Posted by sal

Shoulder post workout.
05-01-2012, 03:03 AM
So I'm going to deload starting next Monday, day 55. Not sure if I'm going to stick with 4x10, or switch to 3x30 at 30% 1rm.
It'd be the same muscle split and exercises, and with the same growth, I feel endurance training would be better suited for me - my cardio sucks, and boxing kills me. I've also been thinking it'd be cool to be able to high rep bench at 225, like NFL players.

I just started a new job, been having to get my workouts done in under 45 mins cause my gym closes at 10. Haven't been eating enough either.
05-05-2012, 11:07 PM
So after this deload I will be starting at the following weights:
Overhead press 45 3x24-30
Bench press 75 3x24-30
DB incline bench 40 3x24-30
Deadlift 90 3x24-30
Squat 80 3x24-30
Cable row 75 3x24-30
Wide grip pulldown 75 3x24-30
The wide grip pulldown is questionable, I'm basing that on my weight when Im pulling myself up. Dips and close grip chin up will stay at bodyweight. I'm not sure if I will drop the other exercises weight or not, I'll prolly try it out the first week to see how it feels. 4 weeks on, 1 week deload, 4 days on 3 days off(or 1 day off with fighting on there own days). That would be just over 10 cycles a year, and even though strength isn't linear and I couldn't expect a 200 lb jump in all my lifts in 12 months, I do think I could aim at my bench being 225 3x30 this time next year.

This week is a deload week, I got caught up at work so will be going Tue-Fri and I'm going to try and go first thing in the morning rather than at night. It's just too hectic trying to get there after work, and until I pay for a membership at 24 I need to keep using my current gym. Tomorrow will be 8 weeks in, so about half way through cycle.
05-08-2012, 03:29 PM
Weights still not going up so I'm counting my calories now.
Did shoulders, deload. Is it just me, or does it feel like I'm not doing anything during deload?
05-08-2012, 04:53 PM
That's the whole idea lol. I dont deload I just take a week off every 8 - 12 weeks.Originally Posted by smash1904
05-09-2012, 03:49 PM
Weights still dropping, so I'm going with 20 calories x my target weight of 205. I hope 4100 makes a difference. Part of the problem is I was using a weight gainer before, and since I ran out I haven't really increased my eating.
Another deload day.

Worst burn I've ever gotten in a shoulder workout, it was burning in places I've never felt before.
05-16-2012, 09:56 AM
Or are you just trying to lean out? Sorry, started reading because that's quite a cycle, but got too impatient to get thru 8 pages haha
05-16-2012, 05:48 PM
I did higher weight lower rep (5x5) for awhile and had good results. Im not totally sure what happened but its looking like the motorcycle accident I got in back in January messed my back up cause I've had progressively worse back pain(amongst other problems). I'm only just seeing a doctor now, been trying to work through it by dropping weight but its only been getting worse.Originally Posted by Stoni9
So I read a study on 3x8 at 80% vs 3x30 at 30%. Turns out you get similar muscle growth at 3x30, without the soft tissue issues. And I got to tell you the pump, burn, and doms is far worse then anything else I've experienced, and so far without any of the other problems I've experienced during and after work outs - cramps, muscle spasm, tightness, and sharp pain in my back. I'll see what happens with squats and deadlift but so far it seems like a winner(for me at least).
05-18-2012, 01:59 PM
05-19-2012, 03:07 PM
It's been working well so far, I had doms from Tuesday in my shoulders for close to 3 days.Originally Posted by Stoni9
So I'm going in for x rays next week, but my doctors pretty sure its a soft tissue injury and I'm going to need an MRI. I might have a compressed disc in my lower lumbar. Said stay away from anything that agravates it, but at 30% 1rm I think I'll be good. Was thinking with going that low I might want to switch to stiff legged deadlifts(good mornings?).
Went out with some friends I hadn't seen in a couple months, apparently I'm huge.
05-21-2012, 01:16 PM
Sorry for the long delay on updating, I've been having to so short workouts from home with limited equipment. Didn't feel it was really worth noting, cause I only have 50 lbs on an easy bar to work with. Much higher repetition.
So I think I'm coming off cycle early, my last dose on Friday will be the end of long esters, and I will be switching back to test prop this week. Prolly run that for 3 weeks to clear the deca and go into pct. Between health issues and now having two jobs I think it'll be in my best interest.
Pct will be torem forma and daa, I've been on hcg so I expect a smooth transition. I may go on osta after I finish my torem.
At the start of pct I will be starting a new log: cjc with out dac, ghrp6, m2, and mgf peg/igf lr3.

Painful. I like it a lot, the burn gets unbearable. The pump is crazy, I feel swollen to bursting leaving the gym.
Also this new job I got is a workout in itself. I do hull cleaning which is hours of scrubbing and swimming under a boat. It's leaning me out, and I'm real tired.
05-24-2012, 02:21 AM
I get hbp, makes my chest hurt when it happens. It also gives me headaches. I've had an ongoing cough, but its dry, and I don't think I'm sick. I may have a compressed disc in my lower spine, or some other kind of soft tissue damage. And between the heat making me sweat, being in bay water for work, and breaking out in hives my skin looks terrible. I've also been getting really depressed for no reason, and I'm pretty lethargic - but that might just be cause I'm so busy. Just don't feel I should stay on any longer than it takes to clear the long esters, health is fair, life is hectic. I need to collect myself.Originally Posted by GreenEarth

That's no good man. At the end of the day your health comes first so do what you think is right. You know how your feeling so I'm sure you'll do what's right for you. There's always next timeOriginally Posted by smash1904

My chest and triceps were burning as bad as the muscles I was trying to work, and my biceps got so swollen they hurt and were hard to move. I'm taking it easy on my lower back which is why I didn't include deadlift - I'm on pain medicine for it and don't want to make it worse.
05-25-2012, 09:13 PM
Had trouble at work today, my arms were so sore they were almost useless. Just one week of this has made my arms look super thick and vascular.
I took a 25mg exemestane last night to see the effect: skin is less oily, and it seems like my acne isn't quite as bad... I'm going to keep taking it 2-3x a week to see if estrogen has been the cause of my skin bumping up so bad.
Thank god its the weekend, I'm going to get some much needed rest.
06-02-2012, 01:58 PM
Only work out I got in for the week:
Bench 80 3x30
Ohp 45 26/22/18
Row 82 3x30
Was real a real quick short work out, didn't have a lot of time, and I was already really sore from work. Gotta say this new job wears me out, and any work out makes my job so much harder. My arms shoulders and chest already start burning at work, but the day after a workout they're like noodles. And its leaning me out, every time I step on a scale I'm lighter, and I'm eating a lot. Think I might need to revise my workouts to be a little lighter. I'm about ready to start pct, as soon as I get my peptides I'll be ready to go.
06-06-2012, 03:12 AM
I should get my bf tested I'm pretty sure its the lowest I've ever been. The only exercise I've really been getting is my rigorous work activities, but considering that my whole body is sore I think that's enough for now. Anything extra makes work nearly impossible, and I'm exhausted as it is after work.
I'm down to 47mg test p eod, or 165mg a week. As I've already said this is just tell I can get my peptides to start pct.
06-24-2012, 02:18 PM
It's been close to 3 weeks since my last update, and as there hasn't been many updates I haven't really felt the need to. I lowered my test dose, and been busy at work, so haven't been getting to the gym. Im not sure how much weight I've lost, but I'm sure its significant. It's hard to gauge any strength gain during this time and cycle all together, aside from feeling stronger, my muscles feel more dense and aesthetically I feel it was a success(aside from the acne coming back). I feel good, and have a steady job now so future cycles should go much better. For now I feel I need a good 3-6 months off.
I started pct:
Smashin pct: ghrp6/cjc no dac/mt2/igf lr3/mgf peg
