    Weighed in at 186. Surprised cuz I've been eating like a beast but I did lose like 3 lbs right before I went to the gym... Oh and I'm definitely feeling a little something now. This is my 8th day on cycle and my first arm workout and I just wanted to keep lifting! I'm swole as hell right now, combination of carbs and creatine but the pills are definitely KICKING IN NOW. Hope it just keeps coming!!!

    For sure. It's not anywhere near my last cycle 2 yrs ago or so where I gained massive strength and bulk right away, like 15 lbs in 2 weeks and strength through the roof, but its way more steady and I like this stuff better. I mean there is no way I could've done 265x8 on my fourth set last week but sure enough I did yesterday. Def feeling Alpha in the gym

  6. I still don't get why people stack so much weight on stiff leg deads. I saw this guy jut a min ago repping with 315 and it looked like he was gonna snap his back. All jerky n whatnot. Anyway like Kai Green says about stiff DL "if you have the mind-muscle connection you don't need a lot of weight". That dude uses 135 lbs for stiff leg deads and he's like 5'8" 280 lbs...

    and then they bend their knees wtf!!! they don't call them stiff legged for the fug of it...I will go up in weight but won't break form. I never go past 225 and usually only go to around 185.

  8. Weighed in at 190 post sh*t, first thing in the morning before working out. Definitely gaining steadily. Today was back...

    DAY 11 Back n Abz
    Hanging leg raise
    15x3
    Wide pullups
    10x3
    Reverse pullups
    8x3
    DL
    [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
    Wide lat pd
    [email protected]
    BB reverse grip row
    [email protected]
    Superset-> Close grip lat pd + Ext
    [email protected] + [email protected] x3

    Grip has improved dramatically. I used straps for this workout last time on everything after pullups. This time I forgot my straps and just rolled with it. Did just fine. Barbell almost slipped on my last DL set but ended up being fine. Also ima make sure to eat something before an AM workout next time cuz I was feeling a little gassed without any food in my belly

    I always perform much better fasted but that is something I got used to with IF protocol. I think some people do not experience a heightened performance level during fasting but many do, has to do with body type I think.

  11. I'm the same way sometimes I workout fasted and sometimes I don't but never noticed a dip in performance barring nutrition is on point the remained of the day or day leading up to fasted workout.

    I am definitly not one of those people. I go with 40+c pre and If I go under 200c daily my performance drops dramatically.

  13. I've done carb cycling and its not for me at all. Mood flux n weakness at the gym. I've also ran days with very little fuel as a Marine and know that you do get used to it eventually, even to the point where you're not hungry at all and begin to eat even less while maintaining the same high level of physical activity. Carbs are my best friend and fuel me for weights though. I simply do not perform well without them preworkout. And solid carbs at that.

  14. I remember reading a study on fasted workouts releasing more testosterone and growth hormone during and after the exercise is completed. Then again I'm sure there's a study contradicting that one as well. Studies...

  15. By the by, muscle soreness has decreased dramatically. I've had no DOMS since my leg workout on Saturday.

    I prefer solids over liquids. If I'm in a bind Ill mix dextrose powder in my preworkout which does help when in a clutch, but I can still do more with solid carbs.

    I am sure that there is many benefits, but it may be some people don't get the same effect. For me I know it is the case cuz I can really feel added power and strength in my fasted workouts. I have a very unevolved system. The reason our bodies adapted this way is that we had to go long periods without eating way back when. We needed vast amounts of energy and agression to go out as slay that large beast we needed to gorge on. Some people are less efficient this way so IF is not for them. Ectos generally need to eat every few hours where I could get by with once a day and still perform at top form.

  19. Ya in as close to 100% ecto as you can get carbs are necessary for me as well as every couple hours. My wife is a figure competitor.and if she.even.looks at carbs outside of veggies her.performance.drops and. She.feels like crap.

    Good example, we're all so different.

    Shoulder workout has really improved. My form has gotten much better allowing me to hit target muscles much better than last week, even if weights didn't increase dramatically. Side raises and rear raises especially are much stronger.

  22. This **** is really meeting my expectations so far. Very impressed with the steady gains I'm experiencing. I've gained 10 lbs so far.

    Pretty impressive how much would you have normally gained naturally at this many calories?

    Any sides?

    At two weeks in, without a PH and at the same caloric surplus, I would probably have gained a similar amount of weight. Probably 7-10 lbs. That said, I would not have gained the stellar increases in strength or LBM. That's the big difference here, LBM. My muscles are much fuller and dense. And that's pretty awesome in and of itself. Most PHs leave you with wet gains, a lot of water weight and bloat. This one is dry and solid, much better. If I can gain another 10 lbs before the end of cycle than we'll know for sure how much mass this Shiz is capable of.

    So far no significant sides. The last couple days I've noticed being less horny by frequency, meaning I'm usually horny all day whereas lately I've been horny only at certain times of the day. But this has not had a negative effect on efficiency or quality of sex with my wife. No signs of estrogen conversion. No lethargy.
