    Legs today
    Leg extension
    10x10 with 30 sec to min rest
    Seated leg curl
    10x10
    Standing calf raises
    6x12
    Ab work between sets.

    Not being able to do squats and leg press due to lower back is disappointing, but will keep working with what I can do.

    Starting to split up my DAA with 3 caps am and 3 caps p.m. This is a higher dose of DAA than the recommended. I don't notice much with DAA so I will see if this has any effect.

    I am going to start taking rev black 1 a.m. And 1 p.m. I find that I get a dodgy feeling in my stomach taking them both at once. Then this interrupts my sleep.

    I've been a bit lazy in here. Have been keeping at the upper lower split and is working pretty well. I am going to change to a push/pull/legs split this week.
    PCT is going well, still have good strength and even though my libido didn't really drop, with the rev black and DAA it is back, better and stronger.

    The change of split will keep your muscles guessing, good point during pct when you're struggeling to keep the muscle built during your cycle.

    The revolution pct and daa will make your pct smooth.....that your libido is increasing is a good sign.

    I am big on changing things up, I am happiest when one workout does not in any way resemble the last.

    Too bad the 550 and epi-v is gone.

    Got some 1 andro coming my way, 1 alpha was not available. So let's see what we can build...

    4 bottles coming over

    Ideas are always welcome...

    Strength has held up well. Legs are not a good example as I am taking it easy to help with some lower back issues. But chest, shoulders and back going good.

    I was planning and buying my second cycle when I purchased the first. Looking forward to it, but pct is going great and the DAA, rev black are working great.

    Training has been going good. Looking leaner and keeping any size gains. I am a big fan of the rev black and DAA combo. Have some og anabeta now but will save that for another time. Still taking cissus and fish oil, but can feel some joint pain in my elbows. Might drop the rev black to 1 ed.

    My recommendation would be to add either Antaeus Achilles or iForce Joint Help with glucosamine. This has kept my joints from having any issues during cycle and now PCT.

    Had no issue with joint pain while on cycle and are only noticing it now near the end of pct. So I'll drop it to 1 rev black and get some glucosamine. That'll do it.

    Starting to notice a little loss of strength as I come to the end of my pct. I have dropped to 1 rev black a day and the dry joint issues have gone.

    Today is my last day of pct and on reflection the short 1 Alpha and 550 xd cycle improved my strength and leaned me out. I can see now at the end of pct that I have lost some strength and stamina.

    Through out the cycle I injured my lower back and then aggravated it again in pct. This affected my leg training and pretty much restricted me to DB lunges, leg extensions and leg curls. I can see improvements in back width, although this may of been that I had leaned up.

    Next cycle of 1 andro and 550 xd will be a higher dose and longer cycle, and I know with proper diet I will get a good recomp.

    It should be obvious that I was happy with the results and had no side effects from the products. Libido did take a hit, and with the rev black and DAA has been great in pct. The rev black was good at the recommended dose and I only noticed some joint pain with a week to go, so I just dropped down to 1 rev black.

    Thanks for all the support and info that I received along the way. I will keep following and learning from the finaflex logs on products I intend to use.

    Cheers

    The one thing I see on a lot of these runs is a tendancy for injury or CNS failure leading to catching colds or flu's. We get all that power and can't control ourselves. That's why I like to have a plan to prevent this kind of thing. Even so I got carried away on my last run.
