    Calebsmittys 1-Andro Run


    I thought I would try to log my cycle on here. I have gotten some good info from other logs so I thought I would return the favor.

    My run:

    1-Andro: 2 caps first two weeks, 4 caps thru week 6. (Six Week Run)
    550-XD : 2 caps starting week 4 and ending week 7
    PCT Black: Starting Week 6. May begin taking one cap at night starting week 2
    Pure Test: 4 caps week 5 and week 6, 6 caps starting week 7 through week 10

    I just started week 2 on Andro. Nothing of note to report. I have some weight gain most likely from adding Carbs to diet not from PH.

    At start of my run I was 220 lbs. at 6 ft. and now week 2 slightly over 225.

    Diet will be Carb Back Loading for the most part depending on feel. Will increase carbs if feeling sluggish. I can usually push pretty hard low carb.

    Training has been a 531 hybrid. Trying to increase my volume to let my muscles grow. I stick with 531 for main lifts. I have been steadily increasing volume.

    My goal is to continue to gain lean mass and increase strength. I would be happy if I could lose some fat and increase definition without sacrificing strength. We all would i'm sure.

    I'm in!

    I started seeing strength increases in the middle of week 2 (with 1-Alpha though), so it should kick in very soon

    I like Wendler's 5/3/1 too, your strength will go through the roof with it!

    I've run 1Andro before with Halovar. Loved results, but gained way to much soft weight. Hoping to keep it lean.

    Thanks for logging, just got done with my 1-andro run and am currently in PCT. I love it.

    Day 10. My strength is good but I'm attributing that to my change in diet. Added carbs have helped. Nothing to report as of yet. I don't feel much yet.

    Only side I can mention so far is Lethargy in the mornings. Just feel more tired than usual upon waking. But can't say for sure if that is from 1-Andro.

    Today was first day I felt something. Not sure if andro is kicking in. Felt a good pump today doing high volume HIIT on my off day. I've slacked on conditioning.

    Workout was light high volume intended to ramp up my heart rate.

    Flat bench. 10x10 concentrated on moving weight fast 30-45 sec rest interval
    Dead/curl/press 4x8
    Lat raise 100 reps
    Shrugs. 50 reps

    Woke up tight and sore today. The high rep stuff always gets me. I feel tight and pumped this morning. I'm guessing Andro is kicking in. I bump it up to 4 a day this Sunday. I'm hoping to be on a role by then. Still trying to figure out my training. Havn't made a definitive decision.

    My idea is to continue with 531 for big movement. Hit everything else for hypertrophy. My split is out of wack though due to 531 split. Work in progress.

    Every morning I feel so groggy like I took a sleeping pill the night before.

    Did not train yesterday. Had alot of soreness so I took the day off. I felt like my muscles were full and pumped without training. The Andro is kicking in. I'm looking forward to training today.

    I've decided to follow a 5 Day Powerbuilding split for the duration. I usually stick to 3 or 4 day splits but want to get the most out of the rapid recovery. Ive decided to follow my 531 numbers for the power portion of this split. This should allow me to continue building and maintaining my strength while still adding size. I will adjust as needed.

    Chest/Triceps
    Back/Traps
    Quads/Calves
    Shoulders/Biceps
    Deadlift/Hamstrings

    Yeah it shakes off after about 10 minutes by the time i'm on the road I'm fine. Even with 8 hours of sleep. It might be my body recovering from football season. When you spend several months on fumes and then your body have the ability to relax it has a hard time bouncing back. I always get sick right at the end of football season. Like my body was waiting.

    Snags...i'm still on the fence on training. I'm stuck in the middle of strength vs. growth. I have been doing 531 so long it is easy to program but I'm considering taking a different approach. I have played with a MountainDog Program in the past. I'm thinking I might ditch 531 for a few months and try a differnt approach. Have any opinions?

    no, not really. sorry man.
    i mean it all depends on your own goals. i know there are quite a few 'popular' programs out there, but i only know a few by name, and really only rely on very basic principles for growth myself. i don't ascribe to any one 'program' out there, neither for myself nor my trainees.
    if you wanted to go with 531 i'm sure you would do well, it's a solid approach.

    Very true. Basically trying to figure that out. I like to have a plan and adjust from there.

    Diet update. Have been increasing carbs with lunch and dinner. Not following strict Carb Backloading. Carbs before training and after and. Some simple carbs if I feel flat. Protein at 200+ grams. Fat about 100 grams. Carbs at about 250 grams. Less on non training days. I'm going to increase my calories steadily.

    Supplements other than PH
    Creatine 10-15 g
    Leucine. 4-5 g
    EFA. 5-8 g
    Vit C. 4 mg
    Vit D. 5000-10000 IU
    Multi. Twice per day
    Dextrose for post workout 40 g

    Weight 231 this morning. Bumped up 1-Andro to 4 caps per day. Started taking PCT Black 1 cap at night.

    Hunger is crazy. I am keeping my intake under control but I could eat all day and still not be satisfied. I can see my I am much fuller visibly. Strength and intensity is much improved.

    Used yesterday as a deload. Just did some interval sprints and 4 sets of Ab Rollouts.

    Quads and calves today.

    Knee has felt like gravel since last squat session. Took longer to warm up.

    Squats worked up to 365 x 5.
    Felt I could have gone for 405 but decided to save it

    Leg press 3 x 15. 3 second negative no lockout
    Front squat 3 x 12 kept it light
    Leg press giant set 40 reps

    Standing calve raise 2 x 12 reduced weight and did two giant sets of 40

    Legs were noodles

    Energy was lacking. Not a great session. But I still got a lot out of it.

    Worst session yet since starting. Been fighting fatigue last two days. Thinking of picking up a PWO to help. Will be out of town this weekend so trying to get a bunch in before I leave. Probably just need a rest day.

    Dead lift (no belt) 135x8, 225x8, 225x8, 275x8, 275x8, 315x5, 315x5
    Stiff DL 225x10x3, 135 x 10x4 low and slow to get a good stretch
    Glute bridge 135x10x4

    I got it done. Wasn't happy about it but I grinded through it.

    I only ran andro and I gained ~10lbs in 4 weeks. Strength sky rocketed. Endurance went up. Good results.

    Well I have not done much high volume in a few years. And it has been at least 8-10 years the last time I trained with a 5 day split. I haven't been this sore all over in a long time.

    Just picked up a PWO. Superpump whatever called. Should help.
