    could stack these 2 together, or just finish up the run with 550 when 1-alpha is spent..

    and i don't often advertise in other forum members logs (kinda frown on that actually), but this time ima make an exception

    if you haven't seen this, you really should..

    Thanks Steve. So far no joint issues other than mild bursitis in shoulder. Have indeed run 550XD in the 1Andro cycle I did last October. Plan to add 550XD into this cycle starting week 4.

    I did have 335 grams if carbs yesterday. I take it that I need to drop back on them? So the carbs are the cause of the bloat? I was thinking maybe it was the Greek yogurt (dairy). Hmm.

    It could very well be the carbs. I know when i ingest a ton of carbs i bloat and it usualy takes a couple days to go away. Unless i stay on higher carbs them it takes about a week or two for my body to regulate things.

    This. Also the yogurt could have an effect as dairy products do cause quite a few people to bloat some.

    Day 14 ( Weight 165 ) +7

    Fast recovery and strength is here. Back pumps are still an issue. Started 3 g taurine in morning and another 3 g at night. The pumps kind of wiped me out during this workout but managed a DL PR.

    Back and Biceps

    Deadlifts
    245x5
    265x5
    285x5
    305x5 PR

    Two DB Rows
    90x6x3

    Yesterday's calories 2400 (138p/278c/55f). Will concentrate on upping protein today.

    Yeahhhhhhhh....that's what I like to hear! Should really notice the strength from now on. Give the taurine a day or so more and see if it takes the back pumps away. I would suggest taking one of the 3g doses an hour pre workout also.

    Ok, I'm admitting to be nutritionally challenged. Thought I can figure this out but, since Snags is glaring at me right now, it looks like I'm in macro trouble!

    Would like to bulk and add muscle but not add too much fat on the old stomach area. For the last two weeks:

    Averages based on 14 days of my cycle:
    2285 calories 158 g protein 230 g carbs 74 g fat
    Percentages: 34% protein 50% carbs 16% fat

    Flame retardant lifting belt on! Go!

    Ok so bare minumum I would like to see macros like this 225g Protein 225g Carbs and about 60g fat. That should be a good baseline for ur bulk right now. At least that's what I would do.

    love your logs - clean, detailed, to the point
    and i see monte picked up the slack for me, good deal..
    been incapacitated with very limited online access (mark you can relate, had to deal with some old man issues lol), so i knew i could count on my fellow reps to cover for me
    nice that these pesky nagging issues have been rectified now - let's move it to phase II and kick it up a slight notch!
