Unless you think going off creatine for a week would be an issue. If it is, I may just switch to SizeOn by Gaspari. I used that in the past and liked the results but found it tough to drink during my workout especially when I already drink Xtend intra-workout. Let me know your thoughts Montego.
    I think you should give Crea-Trona a shot I run creatine non stop year round because it's cheap and it works. Since I started using Crea-Trona a few weeks ago though I have noticed a huge differance in pumps, strength and water retention (basically holding zero water). It's truly in a class all by itself and I think you would really enjoy it.

  2. Haha it's not too tough when breakfast is about 1,500 calories and you drink 2 Extreme XXLs from ABB. Those bad boys have around 1200 calories in each bottle. Add in a few snacks and a huge post workout dinner and there you have it, 5500 calories haha

    Never heard of Crea-Trona before. I may give it a shot. I liked the Volugro cus it also gave me a ton of postworkout simple carbs. I also read a pretty lengthy article ripping the entire microdosing strategy to pieces. Basically it said creatine monohydrate is still the only proven and best form of creatine. All the claims of chemical alterations and ultra-concentrated formulas like Kre-Alkalyn and CEE were proven ineffective according to ProSource magazine. What are your thoughts on that? I try to stay away from the microdosed supplements.

  4. Creatine Mono has the most data on in but science is science and buffered creatine stays creatine longer in your system instead of breaking down in to creatinine. Nothing wrong with Monohydrate other than associated bloat but for 40 bucks I hope you are getting at least 2 months worth. Also you don't need a huge insulin spike post workout just take in carbs. Your muscle is already going crazy trying to soak up nutrients and it is actually the 1 time you don't need a huge insulin spike to shuttle nutrients into your system. If your goal is leaning up while keeping or adding muscle you would do better to be taking in complex carbs post workout. However if you want to get something that has creatine monohydrate and some fast acting and complex carbs look into our CELL SHOCK recovery drink. 2 scoops provides plenty creatine mono, and also has 50 grams of mixed carbs 15 simple sugars in the form of dextrose and 35 in the form of maltodextrine.

    This guy is smart Mono has been king for a long time no doubt but like kleen said buffered creatine does stay in the system as creatine longer and regulates ph levels to maximize uptake.

  7. Think I'm gonna try the Cell Shock, thanks for the suggestion. Right now my goal is to pack on as much size and develop as much strength and explosiveness as humanly possible by August. Staying lean is just a bonus but it's not my main goal. However I'm loving this recomp on the 1-Andro. Just hit the 273 lb mark this morning. Bout to hit the gym and do some arms.

  8. Cell Shock would be a perfect fit. And the price is amazing commpared to other post workout supplements that don't offer nearly as much.

  11. I think I would have a major blood sugar event off of one of those big drinks like that. Of course I don't have 274 lbs to feed either. You Sir are a BIG BOY!

  12. There was a good article about creatine dosing and best practice for absorption.

    Dissolving creatine in warm water and drinking warm for best absorption.

    Yeah they come in handy when I need to make up a 2,000 calorie deficit in my diet. They don't taste too bad either.

    Montego, DreamWeaver, and MrKleen73: I'm definitely gonna go with the Cell Shock. I've been doing some research and like what I've been seeing. Plus you guys are right, the price is absolutely unbeatable. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Just to follow up from yesterday, my arms session went pretty well. I'm in a strength phase right now and it's not too fun come arms day. My rep ranges and the exercises I'm doing don't allow for much of a pump which is definitely something I'm missing right now.

    Weighted Dips: 70x8, 75x8, 80x6
    Barrell Bar Curls: 85x8, 95x8, 95x8
    DB French Press: 50x8, 50x8, 55x7
    DB Curls (I go halfway, drop and catch them and then go all the way up) 30x8, 30x8, 30x8
    Heavy Band Tri Extensions: Black bandx8, black bandx8, black bandx8
    EZ Bar Reverse Curls: 75x8, 85x8, 85x8
    DB Cubans: 20x8, 25x8, 30x8
    1/2 Cubans: 20x10, 20x10, 20x10

    Weights have been going up pretty consistently and despite the fact I'm not getting much of a pump I'm noticing a bit more vascularity in my biceps and forearms. Took today off from lifting, had another long day and my body needed a night of rest. I'll be back to do legs again tomorrow, however they're still sore from Monday

    On a side note I haven't experienced any negative sides whatsoever. Libido is still great, mood is great, joints feel better. I rant and rave about these products so much people are probably gonna think I was hired to make Finaflex products look good. I WASN'T. But so far I've been extremely impressed with the 1-Andro.

    Haha thanks bro and thanks for all the amazing advice. Wouldn't be where I'm at right now if it wasn't for you guys and all your help.

  15. Just did legs today. Feelin pretty good.

    Squats: 365x6, 405x4, 465x2, 455x4
    Good Mornings: 145x8, 145x8
    Glute Ham holds: 35lb DBx6, 35x6
    Walking BB Lunges: 185x20, 185x20
    Single leg lying leg curls: 97.5x8 each leg, 105x8
    Sled Pulls on tip toes, 1600lbs for 12 seconds 5 times.

    Legs are torched. Yesterday I mentioned I had no sides at all...in an ironic turn of events, I feel like I had blue balls all day haha. Just like a dull aching in my nuts. Nothing I can't handle. I'm assuming this is just a mild side from the PH. Any thoughts haha? And on a side note, my girl is on a business trip hours away, so it's not blue balls.

  16. I've never experienced this before.....

    Normally, on a hormonal cycle, the testes will "shut down", or cease production of natural testosterone. When this happens, some men may feel an "ache" in the testes. It's a sign that it's working.

    ^^^^ Second this. Absolutely normal and reverses during PCT.
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

    I don't get it every time I run a PH, but yeah still pretty familiar with the aching balls..
    very fleeting, temporary..goes away as quick as it came on

  21. Thanks for all the replies guys. Was up at the cabin this weekend so didn't get a chance to read all this till late last night. Had a nice relaxing weekend. Thankfully the pain has subsided for now, just like Snagency said, went away as quick as it came. Glad to know the 1-Andro is doing it's job.

    Worked all day and then hit chest/back this evening.

    Bench Press Isos: 375 for an 8 second hold x2. 405 for an 8 second hold x2
    Bench Press: 285x6, 295x6, 305x6
    Semi-Sup Pullups: BWx6, BWx6, 12lb DBx6, 15x6, 20 x6
    Barrel Bar Bench: 275x8, 285x7
    Wide Pro Lat Pulldown: 157.5x6, 170x6
    Side Inertia Lat Raises: 25x6, 25x6
    Shrugs: 395x6, 395x6

    It was the third week for this phase so I drop a set for the auxiliaries. Joints feel great. Did some speed work in the sand after my lift. Haven't done much speed work since I started the cycle cus I was trying to bulk up. Now that I'm up to 277lbs, I'm gonna start working my speed training back into my training regimen. Did band runs in the sand, 30 seconds forwards for 4 sets, 30 seconds backwards for 4 sets with a minute rest in between. I was surprised how good I felt during it. Don't get me wrong I was winded by the end of it, but I was expecting to have a much rougher go at it with the extra 10 pounds I put on and not doing any intense running for about 4 weeks. I was recomping without much cardio, so I'm excited to see how adding the intense cardio in enhances the recomp. Ran a 40 yard dash at the end of everything and clocked in a 4.84. Not bad for a 6'3" 277 lb man, but by the end of this cycle I'm hoping to break into the 4.7's

  22. Its nice change of pace seeing these speed/strength training programs instead of straight bbing. Good training brother. And yes very good numbers for being huge

  23. Yah very impressive numbers.
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  24. Thanks Montego and DreamWeaver. Preciate it.

    Today was heavy week for arms. Had an amazing workout, best one yet since I started my cycle.

    Weighted dips: 65x6, 85x6, 100x6 (2 count down)
    Barrel Bar curls: 115x6, 115x6, 125x5 (2 hold at top, 2 count down)
    DB French press: 50x6, 55x6 (2 count down, 2 hold at bottom)
    DB drop curls: 40x6, 40x6 (drop at half way, all the way up, than 2 count down)
    EZ bar reverse curl: 95x6, 115x6 (2 hold at top, 2 count down)
    Heavy band tri ext: black bandx6, blackx6 (2 hold at top, 3 count down)
    DB Cubans: 30x6, 40x6
    1/2 Cubans: 20x8, 25x8

    Crushed some PRs lifting than I did a speed and agility workout for about an hour and a half.

    Extended shuttle: 6 sets 90 sec rest in between
    (5 yards and back then 5 clap push-ups, 10 yards and back, then 5 vertical jumps for height, 15 yards and back, 15 yards and back. That's 1 set.)
    Heavy band runs: 30 sec at a time, 6 sets

    By the end my legs were torched and I just about yakked. Found it in me to run two 300 yard shuttles yet. I normally do a 300 yard shuttle in about 68 seconds.

    300 yard shuttle works like this. 25 yards up and 25 yards back, 6 times. That makes 300 yards. It really kills the legs with all the stopping and starting.

    Ran the first one in 63 seconds, rested 2 minutes, and ran the second one in 65 seconds. Both personal bests and both after 2 hours of working out. I was so shocked I remeasured the 25 yards and was thinking maybe I skipped a trip up and back, but my training partner assured me I didn't.

    I feel pretty amazing right now. Gonna finish up my post workout meal. Grab a casein shake and get to bed. Hope the intensity carries over to tomorrow's training session.

  25. That's some heavy duty shyte right there

  26. Side note, just got a couple tubs of Cell Shock from supplementwarehouse.com for $22. It was out of stock on NutraPlanet so supplement warehouse price matched it. Hope I'm as amazed with the results as I am with the price.

    nice!
    great product, and obviously i'll advise the 2 scoops for you
    my goals are a bit different than yours, so i'll be dropping it in favor of Crea-Trona before too long
    cannot go wrong with either one, and price-point on both is awesome

    good stuff in here!

  28. Sorry I didn't update yesterday. Another couple hectic days at work.

    Wednesday night I did a pretty intense running session. Ran stadium stairs, 4 sets with 1 foot on each bleacher, as many trips up and down as I could get in 30 seconds. 30 seconds rest and back at it. Then I did 4 sets of bunny hops up the bleachers, as many trips as I could make in 30 sec. Followed that up with heavy band resisted runs in the sand. By the end my legs felt like jello and every fiber of my being wanted to walk out of the gym...but the preworkout kicked in and I decided to do a core workout with my buddy.

    Band Crunches: 6 arms extended with a 4 count back, 6 normal band crunches with a 2 count back, and 6 crunches, no count with no band...that's 1 set.
    Band lockouts to woodchops: 10 sec iso, 10 woodchops with a 2 count back, that's 1 set. Did 3 sets of that.
    Hanging band resisted garhammers: hang from pullup bar, heavy band around my feet, bring knees to chest, hold for 2 and back down, 10 reps is 1 set. 3 sets of that.
    Flat lat flexion with presses: Lay on my side with someone sitting on my legs on a bench, extended my arms with a 15lb DB, held that position for 8 seconds then did 8 reps of bring my arms back behind my head and extending again. That's 1 set. 3 sets of that.
    Roman chair med ball abduction holds: On the leg raise station/dip bar, squeeze 20 lb med ball between your knees, bring knees to chest hold for 2, down for 2 for 12 reps. That's 1 set. Finished with 3 sets of that.

    I know it's pretty uncommon to have an entire day devoted to core, but let me tell you, you'll be sore in core muscles you never knew you had. Plus core strength is really important in my sport.

    Today I did my final week of the strength phase for legs.

    BB Squats w/ 2 count down: 315x8, 355x6, 465x4, 425x6, 395x8 (nearly passed out on the last set)
    Good Mornings w/ 3 count down: 145x8, 155x8, 155x8
    Glute Hams w/ 4 count down: 35x6, 35x6, 35x6
    BB Walking Lunges: 175x20, 185x20, 185x20
    Single leg lying leg curls w/ 3 count down: 97.5x8, 105x8, 105x8
    Sled pulls on tiptoes for 12 sec, 5 sets: 1600 lbs again (I ran out of 45lb plates in the gym and the sled won't hold anymore)

    Legs are actually feeling pretty good. They've got their a$$ kicked this week though with all the running added into my workouts.

    Chest/Back tomorrow, I'll check back in then. Just started my last bottle of the 1-Andro

  29. Wow that's a ton of work...
    Unremarkable is no way to go through life... Doug

  30. This guy is putting in work!

    Chad have you thought about entering our transformation contest? A little added motiivation and maybe u could be our new fitness model!
