I posted my results on a couple of threads for my last M1T cycle. I did 2on/2off/3on
I stated that i had increased my bench press by 58 lbs.
I figure some people may not have believed the 50 lbs. But i am not bull****ting.
Let me start from the beginning.
I was a drug addict at ages 23-25. I was strung out on crystal meth. When i was 26 i got a grip and dropped that **** and all the meth head friends along with it. I have always been above 200 even when i was young and lean. When i was on meth i weighed 165. I looked like death. When i recuperated from the damage my fatass weight was back up to 235 with a fat belly.
Well, I didnt want to be a fatass either. So i started reading and training and trying to eat the bodybuilder way.
At 29 and 235 i was one weak sonofabitch. I barely bench pressed 150/8 reps. This was after a nice 6 month training schedule written by Ian King. It was in mens health called "get back in shape".
Well i got in shape. But i was still weak for my size and my strength seemed stuck. I tried several different programs, mostly from the workout database found here on AM and bb. My strength was stuck for a year and a half. I got it up to 165 for 10 reps
I found PH'S!
I bought and returned an andro/dhea/tribulus stack. I returned it after researching further. I found another guru named largekitty. He set me on the research trail. I also found this place (anabolicminds) somehow.
I tried the transdermal and decided i prefered a pill.
Decided, hell, i am 31 years old, I am getting some of this research ****!
I gave it to my "animal"
That week i increased my bench! I got 175 ten reps and i felt strong. I got it muther****er! (talking to myself that day)
Next week i got it again and the last 2 sets was 185 for 10 and 9 reps.
Post cycle week on nolva. 195 ten reps! Up another 10 lbs!
Week two post cycle. I dropped the nolva stupidly and my extra hypertrophy went away. I think my estrogen was up and i lost the visual gains. Anyway this Workout i decided i was working out with 200 this week to see if i still had the strength.
I flipped my lid when i got 9 reps with 200! 7 and 6 on the following sets.
The next week I was back on for the second half of my cycle.
I got 200 11 reps!
My rep range is 4-6 but i kept blowing past that!
After all of this i wanted to start a new program geared towards increasing athletic abilitys while still on M1T. so the high volume did not help my strength much.
I am now back to the strength program and i am going for 225 4-6 next week!
i dont understand it. I am on post cycle now and i still have all of the strength and putting more on the bar everyday.
What can i say. I found this place and it helped me alot.
Thanks to all of you.
I did the weight by reps to determine my approximate bench.
At my strongest naturally i did 165X10= 220 max bench
After M1T, I did 200x11 reps = 278 max bench
I increased in this manner in all areas of my lifting!
I plan on getting under 280 in a week or 2 to test the calculators. I will let you know how it goes.
I am still weak for 225lbs. I plan on running another cycle later this year to see if it helps as much (probably not as much but some maybe). I am also studying up on the dark side.
Sorry for the long ass story. But i have worked hard and you guys would know best how good this can make you feel!
