First Test cycle.
- 05-21-2013, 07:52 AM
Havent had much to update on as of late. So ill give a real brief one. I had a rugby tournament this weekend so I didnt lift. I can see why aas are considered performance enhancers. I felt faster then I did when I played semi pro. At the time I ran a 4.8 40. So a 255 pound man moving down the field that quick makes for a daunting tackle. **** was like playing in a dream almost. Im hooked. Motivated as hell to kill it in the gym today. Im noticing a wee bit of bloat, but ill just have to re uup my water intake. That and take my Ai. Im looking forward to pushing some big weights and running over some fools.

feeling on top of the world.
Bench 160x5 170x5 185x5 205x5 225x3. Beats the **** out of 160 for five sets of five
Deadlift 365x5 for 4 sets. 475x5 for 2 sets.
squat. I went a little light on this since my hammy was still tight from rugby this weekend.
275x5 for 4 sets. 365x5 385x3. All and all a fairly productive day.

I couldn't believe how I went from a 275 bench to 300 to 315 just on a test cycle, and eventually 350. There's only like 2 guys I talk to at the gym and I only see them like once a month maybe. But they both separately couldn't believe the visable change in my appearance and then the tremendous change in my lifts.
You see yourself everyday so may not notice the changes compared to someone who sees you once a month.

Been to long since my last update. I have had a few workouts since the last one. Well, anyway onwards and upwards.
Bench 185x5x3 205x5x2.
Squats I really wanted to hammer in my form so I did two second pause squats (at the bottom)
275x5x7 sets. On the last set I did 10. My legs were on FIRE!
Deadlift 365x5x8 sets.
This is the last week of the high volume phase of my GVT. The next workout will be low volume height weight, so I really wanted to hammer in my form so when on squat I'm going after 385 for three I know proper depth and have confidence in it. Same with bench. Deadlift is a caveman movement so I'm not worried. The test has kicked in with avengance. I had a few days where moon face looked like it could be a problem but my ai and drinking a stupid amount of water helped. Along with shredding my sodium intake.
Look forward to reporting some big lifts in the near future.

So I love the high intensity part of Gvt.
These are my first two workout numbers
Bench 225x3x3 245x2x2
squat 365x3x3 385x2x2 the last one I thought I was going to vomit or crap myself in tandem.
Deadlift 405x3x3 475x2x2. The last rep was hitched up, but in this phase of gvt grinding is alright. Im not looking to get a judge to pass my lifts, just to kick my ass.
Bench same, other then the last two seemed a lot less of a struggle
Squat tried a single at 405, got it up but might have not gone to proper depth.
Deads, same other then the 405's seemed to fly up.

So a couple more workouts. The weight is going the right direction, not the mad jumps in poundage like the start of the cycle. Im at 256 at the moment. That's 26/28 pounds increase so far. Cant cry about that. So the numbers.
Bench same as last workout just felt a lot better on the doubles
Squat got two clean at 405
Dead same as last workout other then I tried 485 and failed it. Got it over my knees but not all that close to a lock out. I mean its to be expected you don't try a previous personal best when you are basically exhausted
todays (Monday workout)
Bench first two sets the same. Tried 245 for a triple and got it. The doubles at 245 were pretty ****ty but still passable lifts.
Squat Same as Saturday
Dead. Did a warm up set and went after 485. I decided if I made the lift I'd stop the workout out and end it on a success. I made the lift, my back might have been a bit rounded out. I didn't hitch it though. So yea I was fairly stoked on life. Did my heavy doubles and called it a day.
Working hard for that double my body weight deadlift.

Alright so I feel like an asshat for letting this sort of die out. But onwards and upwards. I'll more or less just start by saying that I consider this cycle a huge success. The sides of the gear I used were negligable, I've created a noticably different build. Guys and girls have noticed and mentioned a difference in size and fullness in my arms and chest. I don't look like a "roid monkey" in other words I look big and strong but it's not at the point where its 100 percent obvious I'm using. Which, I mean I'm alright with, for now. Alright final numbers I'll give a precycle and post cycle run down.
Bench 205 for 5
Dead 405 for 1
Squat 305 for 2
Bench 305 for 2
Dead 525 for 2
squat 405 for 2
Theese numbers likely seem unreal to you, and that's ok because they seem pretty unreal to me to. I started this cycle at 230 and got up to 258. A week after the cycle I'm hovering around 254. Another noticable stat, my arms went from 16.75 to 18.5 both measurments cold. My body fat before cycle was 9-11 percent. My body fat after is 12-14. So a little high, I'm a little soft in the ab area. So doing the math that means I gained from 13 to 18 pounds of muscle. That leaves 12-17 being water and fat. I can't cry about that. So I took pictures all along the way on my phone twice a week. Thinking I could easily upload them on here. Wrong! So lesson learned, take pics with a digital camera.
Alright, so next cycle, lol I'm hooked.
This is what I plan on running. It will be a 16 week cycle with hope of recomp in mind.
Test 1-16 at 700mg's M/th (350 shots)
Dbol 1-4 at 75 mgs
Tren E 4-14 at 300 mgs (150 shots) T/F
Or Tren A Eod 75 mg shot
I plan on doing the first 8 weeks with a diet with bulking in mind, Then the next 8 with a slight cut in mind. Cardio will be light for the first 8 weeks. 3-5 miles running a day (for an x golden glove boxer that is light). Then the next 8 weeks Intense, hiit training and at least 10 miles of running every other day. My goal is this, when I fought, for most of my fights I was 178 pounds. At 6'6, with a bf of 6-7. I'd like to be 168 pounds and 8-9 bf. I'd be pretty happy with myself knowing that I was 80-90 pounds more muscle then before. I used to be alright being a tall skinny guy, since I mean, I was fairly good at fighting and was cocky enough to think I could knock out 95 percent of people I came in contact with. So I was content looking skinny. Now, I'm not, that lanky guy is dead and gone, I want to be a beast. So I will be journaling that, and there will be weakly pics. I get that **** done right. Thanks for all the support and help along the way guys. This is a huge motivation (this forum).

Sounds like you had a pretty successful cycle there bro. It's addictive isn't it, the cycling, the way it makes you feel, I always laugh when people say Ill only do it once! You never run gear just the once lol.
07-07-2013, 01:10 PM
Without a doubt its addictive. But I'm alright with that, considering I'm a rigger, and all the blow and meth I see on a regular basis. If this is my "drug" I can life with that haha.
