Bodybuilding Contest Prep Log using only Andro Series - 16 Weeks
Hey gang… so I created this account so that I can log my experience with the Andro series as I prep for the Oregon State Bodybuilding Competition on July 7th.I will be posting weekly with updates and progress pics every two weeks.
Current Weight: 245
Body Fat: 10.5
300 grams Protein
150 grams Carbs
No added fats except from what comes from the protein and carbs.
5 days on two off starting now. (was doing 4 days on 3 off prior to cycle)
1 hour a day – 6 days a week ( off on leg day)
This year will be my second year competing. Last year I stepped on Stage at the Oregon Ironman at 217lb. I was happy with my placing considering it was my first competition and I dropped 100lbs to do it. This year, I have made it my goal to win my class and bring the best package I can bring to the stage. This is where Primordial Performance came in and offered to sponsor me. After beta testing the new formula of Andro Bulk during the off-season and gaining a solid 15 lbs in four weeks, I knew the potential of the Andro line and wanted to see how it would help me as I compete in a Bodybuilding competition.
I am currently 16 weeks from the Oregon State and today marks the beginning of my 16 week cycle using Primordial Performance supplements.
My complete hormone stack is listed below and will be the ONLY hormones I will be using with NO other outside help. This should be fun!
• 16 weeks – 8 weeks: Andro Bulk and Andro Mass (6 softgels per day)
• 8 weeks – 1 week out: Andro Mass (6 softgels per day)
• 8 weeks – Contest:Andro Lean and Andro Hard (6 soft gels per day)
• The only other thing I plan to add would be Mechabol at 6 weeks out. – I did talk to Primordial Performance about this and they did approve it.

So Here are my starting progress pics from 3/6. That is when I started my diet listed above and 45 minutes of cardio a day for 6 days a week. As if last week, I was put at an hour. I plan to update progress pics here in two weeks.

Subbed, your running 6 caps of each correct, so 12 per day?
When you doing cardio, am, post workout, separate workout...?
Otherwise stack looks awesome, can't wait to see what the new formula of lean can do for you

Is your coach cool with you posting detailed diet info? Just curious what you are actually eating and when
03-21-2012, 03:49 PM
I dont see why he would... as it is... every persons body is different.
Currently: 6 meals...
Meal one: Protein shake and oatmeal
Meal two: Chicken and brown rice and spinach (any green vegitable)
Meal Three: Beef, brown rice, and green spinach or brocolli (hoping he does not take out the beef any time soon.) lol
Meal four: Chicken and Brown Rice
Meal five: (post workout protein shake)
Meal Six: Eggs (2 yokes)
If I am starving, I can backfill with vegitables and add extra egg whites as needed.
Water:1.5 gallons daily.
Timing: every two to three hours when i have breaks @ work... carbs done b4 6pm.
This will change i am sure but this is what I started with... If there are changes I will update them in my weekly updates (sunday) as that is the day I see my coach anyway.
I also monitor my sweat to make sure i dont smell like amonia (sign of burning muscle..) so far so good in that area.

Diet looks well designed. I am sure it will change rapidly as you approach the final weeks.

Hey gang… 1 Week down.. 15 to go! So here is the latest update
I started taking androbulk and andromass on Sunday. I did not notice any changes in terms of my workouts until Friday. My strength did not feel different on Friday but I did notice more vascularity then I have seen in a while and my stamina was better. Saturday I felt more aggressive and my arm workout was one of the best I have had. I did not burn out as fast, was able to lift heavier and I had noticeable changes in vascularity. Was it life changing… no.. but I was able to do heavy dips for more reps then for the last 3-4 months. So I’ll take it.
Weight: 240lbs as of this am. So that puts me down 5 lbs in a week. Of course, this is to be expected during the first few weeks and as I get closer it will taper off. I will take pictures next week.
Libido: no significant change
Strength:no noticeable change until Saturday.. However that was only one workout so this week will be a better gauge.
Joint soreness: much better by mid week.
After posing class, my coach did notice my legs are coming in good. However, I do need to work more on shoulder and upper chest development. Body fat is definitely down to where I earned a cheat meal today.
My Diet has been adjusted to where he wants me at around 350 in protein with no changes to carbs yet.
Cardio is now at 1:30 and of course it is split.
Well that is all I can think of for now.. If you have any other questions don’t hesitate to ask.

5 lbs definitely has you off to a good start.

14 Weeks out
Hey gang… 2 Week down.. 14 to go! So here is the latest update.
This week I really started to see changes in terms of the Andro product…
As before… there is nothing that is absolutely mind blowing… It’s just better. I was stronger and the vascularity is still there….. There was also one additional change… water retention…I especially noticed it in my lower back….. but retaining water for now should be fine and will help my joints from hurting as much. As long as I continue to burn the fat from the cardio, the look will continue to improve.
Weight: 239.6lbs as of this am.
As you can tell there was no significant change this week in terms of the scale… At first this was surprising and I increased my cardio by 30 minutes and only added an additional 50 grams of protein.
My coach felt that I leaned out more from last week. Only time will tell if I am gaining any lean muscle.. I hope so…. I know that this is only my second year of bodybuilding…. But it is easy to get impatient when you want to grow.
Libido: no significant change though I am more tired at night but I think is due to less sleep from splitting my cardio and having to get used to that change.
Strength: So on Sunday of last week, my coach let me know that he felt I needed to really push my shoulders and upper chest as they are lagging body parts. As a result, I changed up my workouts to include one Chest and Shoulder workout that focused more on power/Olympic lifts and the other that focused more on reaching complete failure through supersets and giant sets. My workouts went to 5 days a week with the following split…
Tuesday: Chest and Shoulders
Thursday Cardio only
Friday: Shoulders and Chest
Sunday: Cardio only
I will continue to mix it up… and I am trying to listen to how my body responds to see what works and what doesn’t. My lifts were better… I noticed that my overall endurance was better. There were a few times where an hour went by and I still have plenty left in the tank… Don’t worry.. cardio took care of that.
Monday was Leg day and it was really good. I was able to complete 10 full sets of Smith machine squats going just below parallel for 10-12 reps. I started at 225lbs and ended at 455lbs(failure @ 7 reps) … only 45 seconds of rest between sets… Even after that I was able to add several different movements before my quads were completely toast. On Back day, I ended with 405lbs on dead lift and I completed 6 reps before reaching failure. This was at the end of my workout. My last attempt at that weight prior to Andro was 3 reps and that was when I was fresh. For me, that is progress…
Joint soreness: My knees were sore this week but that might have been due to not spacing out back and legs more.
My Diet will stay the same this week with 350 in protein 150 carbs so no changes there.
Cardio is still 1:30 and I am doing 30 in the AM and an hour at night.
Questions? Feel free to ask.

So here are my updated progress pics.. I had my wife take them after we finished posing practice.. As you can see my upper chest and shoulders need development and my posing still needs work... I am just glad I have a crazy good posing coach drilling me each week.
