    Great progress brother! Great progress! Awesome! That's only about a week in too, right? Big things coming your way this cycle still a lot of time "on" left!

    Sounds like the caloric restructure hasn't hurt you a bit!

    Thanks man, everything is working better than expected. Even with my sketch nutrition this weekend(just not as clean as I would have liked) I made some nice progress. Looking forward to the rest of this run, it will be a great transformation. And yes lots of time "on" today is the start of week 2.

    Awesome Progress! Very impressive. I just started my EPI-V too and the diuretic effect is nice and subtle not as bad as I thought it might be. I am thinking I am really going to like it!

    Probably the most awesome supplement I've ever used man. Epi-V is amazing. You will be SHREDDED! I hope to get a couple bottles and bridge in...if I'm not shut down that is. With your work ethic and knowledge you will with out a doubt be ripped out of your mind!! Can't wait to follow that one bro, make sure I get a link if you're logging.

    That's it!! I mean why do we think we need to shed water quickly at the end when we can do it slowly over time like this.... It really seems to work better over time.

    Epi-V is a incredible finishing touch. It looks like 550 is going to be an epic recomp product, fits right in with my plans.

    Day 8 (yesterday)

    Traveled back from my brothers place early morning and hit the gym around 1200hr dosed
    550-XD around 0645hr and again around 1700hr. Training is getting better and better everyday with gains in strength and intensity. Still using PCT Black before bed. Im definitely noticing a difference in the mirror in BF% reduction and Im also more vascular. I am noticing some ALPHA MALE AGGRESSION especially when fasted.

    Training

    Workout 1 REPS WEIGHT REPS WEIGHT REPS WEIGHT REPS WEIGHT
    Flat DB Bench 8 65lb 8 65lb 8 50lb 8 40lb
    DB Row 8 60lb 8 60lb 8 45lb 8 35lb
    Shoulder Press Mach. 8 90lb 8 90lb 8 70lb 8 50lb
    DB Drag Curl 8 35lb 8 35lb 8 25lb 8 15lb
    Leg Press Mach. 8 410lb 8 410lb 8 370lb 8 310lb
    Lunges 8 40lb 8 40lb 8 30lb 8 20lb


    2 working sets (60 second rest between working sets) followed by 2 drops set until form failure directly following second set (no rest between drop sets). Aiming for 6-8 reps. I hit all sets at eight reps before hitting failure which is batting 1000! My workouts are becoming more focused and intense, and Im feeling excellent!

    Nutrition
    Carbohydrate: 120.4g (20%)
    Protein: 249.9g (42%)
    Fat: 102.4g (38%)
    Total: 2,328 calories

    I lost track of time as I was busy around the house so I fell short 700cal for my build day. I should be ok considering the weekend I had.
    All of my fats are coming from oils, nuts and some dairy they were a bit high for my taste.

    I weighed again this a.m. just to see how much water I was holding yesterday due to the family weekend. I am currently at at 211lbs also I checked my BF% at the gym today on their electronic meter (not sure of accuracy) but its saying 16.9% I wanted the trainer to check with calipers but he was in a meeting so Ill try again on Monday when its time for updates.

    I am just kind of piggybacking it on the Fat Free log right now. Not logging it by itself but once the FatFree is over I will probably continue to log the results there considering it wont be long enough after to justify another log. I unfortunately no longer have the time to run a bunch of logs. I will be giving it a full review when done though.

    Thanks Kleen, I'm sure it looks familiar lol it is a great protocol though. I'll continue watching the fat free LOG. Good things are coming for you bro, can't wait!

    Well have to see I'm really not sure on the accuracy of that hand held tester. Also I dont have the baseline for that machine at the beginning of week 1. I'll keep checking with it every week and also have the caliper test by the trainer to see how everything lines up.

    Sounds good, I love the feel when everything is beginning to kick in and stuff just works. So I was wondering do you have any old aches and pains you are dealing with? I know you had a lay off so you may be all healed up. Just curious since that is a precursor to nandrolone if you are noticing any benefit to the joints?

    I'm pretty healed up right now. My shoulder tends to bother me on barbell bench variations but nothing to serious to speak of yet. I had some minor pain in the shoulder last week doing incline smith press but seemed to be fine the next day. I'll kept the LOG updated on this though.

    Day 9

    550-XD and 3 Multi-V caps at 0745hrs. I did some cardio and abs today and took dose two of 550-XD around 1800hrs. I will be taking one cap of PCT Black before bed. Ran a mile on the tread mill at mixed speed then worked the heavy bag and jump rope for 10 minutes doing 1 minute intervals.

    Training

    DB Side Bends 3x15 @ 40lbs (I may have tweaked something in my right oblique yesterday at least Im hoping thats all I did)

    Stability Ball Crunches 3x20

    Serratus Dips 3x15

    Felt pretty good today besides the aggression. I am like a ticking time bomb the smallest dumb sh!t is setting me off, and its worse when fasted. The effects of 550-XD are starting to shine as there are noticeable changes occurring in my physique. I weighed again today at 211lbs and checked body fat on an electronic meter at the gym today. According to the meter Im at 16.9% BF I wanted to have the trainer check with calipers, but he was in a meeting. Ill check using both methods on monday. Overall I feel good nothing negative unless you want to count the alpha male...but I like it hahaha!

    Nutrition:


    2,057 calories
    Fat: 50.3g (22%)
    Carbohydrate: 110.1g (21%)
    Protein: 288.9g (56%)

    GREEN... Hey bro, just remember what matters most... How you look in the Mirror, the mirror does not lie! Body weight / Body fat, those numbers can be skewed, skin too loose/tight, holding more/less water, dehydrated, depleted, difference from morning to night, etc. etc. Again, nothing matters as much as the mirror. Also on that same note, if you look in the mirror and like what you see, then 99/100 times others will think you look Fugging Fantastic, because we are always our own worst critics. My only point is, definitely weight yourself and use BF measurements, etc. but do not put all your eggs in those measurement baskets!

    Good advice Al! I bet the temper will be fine after another couple days when you get used to the higher levels of androgens. I really recommend against the smith machine inclines unless you are very careful to make sure the bar can come down to mid chest not anywhere near the clavicle. Many people recommend bringing to the top of the sternum or the collarbone to "target the upper pecs" However, that sets your elbows back to far and causes your shoulder joint to be impinged during the movement. Bottome line is you don't need an incline at all to hit the upper pecs. It has been proven through EGM testing that a Decline Bench actually works the upper pec as much as an incline bench does, and works more of the lower pec too... Also don't go above a 30 degree incline, anything more is basically a shoulder exercise that also hits the chest.

    The mirror can be deceptive depending on the lighting.

    I agree Doc when I look good in the mirror I feel good! I really keep those numbers to monitor BF% vs LBM% in case I need to make changes to the calories and macros. For sure though I am my worst critic. I asked the attendant at the gym the other day if the trainer was around to measure my fat and she say what fat? I just laugh.

    Thanks for the insight Kleen. I actually feel like I isolate my chest better on the smith than on the incline bench. I feel as if I can really concentrate on pushing with my chest when using the smith as on a regular bench I feel like I am trying to stabilize with other muscles. I do like the addition of the decline though as I never used to use this lift in the past, and now using the Iron Warrior it is incorporated.

    Thanks bro, I feel like my cals and macros have really been on point so far. Joints feel good no real aches or pains Just the sensation of breaking down and rebuilding.
