My strength is great and I am lifting a lot. But the rate in which I am jumping up rapidly is not like what it was when I first started and the dbol was kicking my cycle off.
aka its a lot easier to go from 235 bench to 280 than 280 to 325

Here is an updated image 6 weeks in.
Here is the pic from the beginning of the cycle.
Also last week was the first week that I was off the dbol and I dropped a few pounds of water. But I am back to 208 now.
Strength is good. Recover is good. I feel good. One thing I have changed is I have added a good amount more of carbs in my daily diet. (complex carbs). I have noticed my biceps are finally starting to come in a lot better. So far so good.

subd for sure.
How much T you running each week and for how long?
What was your D dosage?
Are you running an AI yet?
I guess PCT is lined out? Any HCG?
I didnt see much about the cycle in the thread.
Gains look solid for sure. Great job thus far.
Get on them wheels bro. Cant see shizzle in the pics.
But, If your legs grow like mine(not at all), NOW is the time to beat them to death.

My cycle is
week 1-12 test cyp 500mg
week 1-4 dbol 25mg
PCT clomid & nolva
I am running adex .5 as AI.

Your nowhere near 8% bodyfat, and probably never have been.
Good luck on the cycle man, I definitely think its too early in the game for you to be cycling, but thats another story...
Pinning is fun stuff

Having abs means nothing if thats all you have. I credit you for at least running a reasonable cycle but patience is a great thing.

I guess that my strength gains from the test took until yesterday to really kick in. Man I all the sudden was able to bench everything with incredible ease.
Bench press went up 15
Incline press went up 15
decline went up 20
I was able to do dips with 45 pound weight instead of 35.
I cant wait until tomorrow to do my shoulders because on my dumbell overhead press I have been sitting at the same weight for a few weeks.

Running a cycle when you basically look like you just started lifting a little weights? Waste. Also learning how to make big gains on gear will cause you to rely on it if you want to make progress, especially getting used to it so early.
But hell, I'm talking about 90% of this site.

I think its funny how people think that everyone else should follow exactly how they believe and follow their schedule
04-29-2009, 05:10 PM
I know what you mean. It's a controlled drug, just like any other drug out there, there is not written statute to say when you should start using a controlled substance. You should know what the hell your doing thats for sure!

I think its funny that people with no discipline can't get over 200 lbs without exogenous hormones...and sad.
04-30-2009, 09:13 AM
why is 200 pounds the magic number, please do tell.
define discipline, your definition appears to be different then others. So lets hear it.
My only complaint is the young pups doing anything hormonal. After 25, i dont give two ****s.
On with my day.
Good day Blackjack, no offense meant.
04-30-2009, 09:35 AM
why is 200 the magic number everyone throws out? If i was 200 pounds I would look ridiculous. Some people don't want to look like a body builder, they want to look good. Look at GSP, Matt Hughes, Josh Koshcheck are you going to tell me those guys never used steroids? There not 200lbs i think GSP walks around at 190 lbs. What about track athletes that use anavar? Should they not use these? Steroids are used for different reasons People need to realize that and stop preaching.
I'm not trying to be a prick but people need to get off there high horse and realize that not everyone uses steroids to become a bodybuilder. If you research it and know what your doing and your over 21 then do what you have to do.

Most of the time people dont want to apply proper dicipline in eating, sleeping, training...you know, sacrifice.
I work my ass off and only touched a few PH which hardly helped me, more to get over a flat spot i hit.
I think for me i see alot of people wasting gear and time. On test Cyp and Dbol, you should look like bear. At you BF if youre trying to look good and NOT be a BBer, you should NOT have chose these 2.
Prop, Anavar, Tbol, Winny, along with a few others should have accompanied you with a good recomp or cutting diet. You would have held and built a bit of muscle while not puffing up.
Im glad you know what youre doing(seriously) that you researched. Just think more often than not people should be waiting longer...(this was just funny looking)
04-30-2009, 01:43 PM
There is no magic weight number of 200 lbs. I never said that. I also never said everyone has a goal to be a BBer. But if you look like you have barely touched a weight in your life and your jumping on AAS - I just think its lazy and wasteful. To each his own though. Not like anything I say will change anyones mind. But if I see stuff like this I am going to call it.
04-30-2009, 02:22 PM
I think the 200lbs was more an exemple then anything else. What I think is people should wait until they have reach near there max natural growing capability before using gear. Yes it's a personal preference but until you reach a decent level either growth or cut gear will be a waste because if you didn't learn how to reach your goal naturally or close to it well as soon as the gear is done you will get back to near where you were.
just my .02 cents

Faceman, its to bad your thread got hijacked but there have been some very relevant points brought up by everyone. Anyway, whats done is done and your looking great. Just taking juice alone does not get you jacked, so you have obviously been doing all the things you should be doing. For that I commend you. The real truth will come when you go into PCT and there after. Will you hold onto the gains?

No, I dont do the chasing thing. My wife used though. She took this pic about 6 years ago. That Sh** was crazy! We are talking about a wall cloud that covered a few miles and looked as though it was going to eat up the city. Almost looks like independence day.
05-02-2009, 05:47 PM
wow she took that pic. That is nice. I got to do a good amount of chasing last year. I wont this year as this cycle landed right in the heat of the season.
05-02-2009, 06:09 PM
Yeah my wife has a knack for getting good pics. I have a bout a dozen more similar to that one on my cpu. Although, there are not as ominous as my avatar pic. We had an F5 wipe out a whole town in my part of the country this time last year.
05-05-2009, 09:27 AM
ok test is full blown now for sure. In the past 1 week my bench has increased 25 pounds. Incline bench 25 pounds. barbell curls went up 20. Lovin it!
So far I have gone from 188 to 213 pounds.
05-06-2009, 01:12 PM
man I have had to do some unexpected traveling and have had to get very creative with bringing it with me.
05-16-2009, 01:45 PM
Knowing that my access to the gym would be limited I adjusted my caloric intake to maintenance. Now that I am back and able to get back in the gym I am bringing it back up to 500 cals above maintenance.
I am in the 9th week now. I am up 215 pounds. Here is a picture that I took of my back today.
