    Sorry for the lag. I have a cold and I am fighting through it. I weighed in at 258 this morning. That's up 8 lbs in one week on approx. 2400 calories per day. This stuff is crazy. Today was a day off after legs yesterday. I put on my size 38 Levi's this morning--this was one of my medium range goals and I am almost there. Still just a little tight. So I don't think I am gaining too much fat on this cycle. Arms are looking bigger. Chest is bigger. Legs for sure look bigger. I'm on 30 mg per day and considering bumping to 40 after the cold. My research says 40 mg is the sweet spot for most folks on Havoc.

    Day 11

    Feeling better today. Still at 30 mg and calories at 2400 or so.

    Chest and Tri

    db press 75x5x4, 75x3
    pec deck 85x10x4 concentrating on good negatives
    low cable press 60x10x4
    cable cross over 20x10, 30x10, 40x10, 50x10

    skull crushers
    50x10, 60x10, 70x10, 80x6
    cable pull down
    50x10, 60x10, 70x6, 70x4
    cable overhead extension (rope)
    50x10x4

    Felt strong and pumped today!!! I have the strong feeling of being on and the king of the gym. One guy commented in the locker room that my chest is looking much more defined and I seem to be bulking up a bit. I'm going to cycle my carbs back down just above ketosis. I have some keto strips so let's find out where that is.

    meals

    dropping my carbs as low as I can without going into ketosis.

    breakfast 315 cal
    oatmeal
    isopure
    10 mg Havoc
    ai cycle support

    preworkout
    isopure 200 cal

    workout

    lunch 508 cal
    isopure
    whole wheat bagel
    peanut butter
    10 mg havoc

    dinner 1275 cal
    steak
    lobster
    asparagus
    mushrooms
    10 mg havoc

    evening snack 210 cal
    isopure drink
    AI cycle support

    2412 calories

    I want to avoid ketosis so I am dropping calories to just above carbohydrate deprivation. I bought some Ketostix at the local pharmacy and I will test until I find my sweet spot.

    I don't want to throw my hat in the ring for a full debate on diets that include ultra low carbs but I will say from what I have read ketosis is to be avoided due to a few reasons.

    1. mental processes suffer
    2. dehydration
    3. body metabolizes protein
    4. need carbs to fuel workout

    So for now I will try to lower carbs and stay out of ketosis while I am on cycle. I may try this while I'm on a serious cut.

    I dont think itll be hard to avoid ketosis, if you eat more then 40-50g of carbs a day you'll be fine. Hell, your serving of oatmeal pretty much prevents ketosis

    Ya to get into ketosis its gotta be low low carbs liek 40-50g tops and it takes your body like 3-4 days to get into a strong ketosis. Your urine will smelll uh... different if youre not sure.

    you can also get these strips you pee on to check the ketone levels in your body. prolly more info than what you needed but now ya know

    Thanks! Since I started at 250 lbs my starting dose was 30 mg and held that constant for 1.5 weeks then I upped the dose to 40 mg. I haven't really noticed any difference except my libido is down a little but I have a cold and I'm usually not all that randy when I'm coughing up a lung. Strength is way up and my arms are getting dense. My chest is more defined and thicker my shoulders seem more defined. I've noticed a little bit of fat came back but it's mimimal since my waist size seems to be holding. So far I think Havoc is a great choice for my recomp. I'm +10 lbs and I feel harder.

    I want to add that normally I have a very hot temper and this was the one thing that had me really worried. I just can't afford to lose my temper. So far no issues at 40 mg.

    You are a big guy and efficacy (and toxicity) is normally related to (mg compound)/(kg of human). Most of the logs I see guys are between 180-220 lbs and they are taking 30 mg. I think at 260 we need more compound for the same result. That's why I chose to start 30 mg and move up from there.

    I have a very dark bruise on my inner thigh that's about the size of a baseball. I wonder if it is related to Havoc or if it is due to my pulled hamstring from about a week ago. Anyone?

    Yea maybe i should have done something similar because the first week i didnt feel much but now im on 30mg daily and now i definitely feel it more so. Im kind of interested in your comment about putting some fat back on.....do you think it was the epi or was it because you changed your diet to bulking? I really wanna shred as much fat as possible and gain 5 - 10lbm. Good luck my man its not a easy road for us bigger guys but definitely worth more in the end.

    I can't answer that. It seems like I put a little fat on and I have been logging my diet and keeping it around 2500 cal per day. So I think it is some bloat due to the epi. I would not recommend going above 30 mg until you see the whole cycle through. I'm concerned that this bruise is due to dosing too high.

    Just wanted to reassure you, the bruise is most likely from the pulled hamstring or some other trauma like that and not from dosing havoc.

    I appreciate the feedback. I'm pushing forward. I have 8 more days of compound onboard @ 40 mg/day then PCT.

    My weight is holding but size is up. I measured my bicep last night and it looks like I increased about 1/2".

    Back and Biceps today.

    overhead rows
    100x10, 130x10, 150x10, 160x10
    lat pull down
    120x10, 140x10, 150x10x2
    deadlift machine
    60x10, 80x10, 100x10, 120x10
    low rows
    120x10, 130x10, 150x10x2

    EZ bar curls
    65x10, 85x10x3
    decline db curls
    20x10, 25x10, 30x10, 35x10
    standing single cable curls
    20x10, 30x10x3
    preacher curls two arm cable
    45x10, 55x10, 65x10, 75x10

    Felt a great pump in the gym.

    Sides are starting to show up. I really have a tough time sleeping the whole night. Back pumps are pretty regular even with 6 g of taurine a day. Libido is down. BP is up about 10 points.

    To tell you the truth I am ready to start another cut but I'm not sure about the timing. Do I cut during PCT or after. What's the most effective.

    I have no idea. I started to look for a reliable method to measure BF and couldn't come up with a good cheap method. So I just started to take pictures to follow my progress thinking this is really the only way to monitor my progress.

    I started PCT yesterday. SERM, Creatine and calorie restriction. I'm keeping it below 2100 calories and keeping protein at 1 g per lean body mass lb and adding HIIT to my workout routine. Of course I am hitting the weights like a madman.

    I will adjust total calories and cycle carbs as I go trying to lose about 2 lbs a week. Time to get back on the cut. Once the cut stalls again I will go back on a bulk. Probably will have to do it without Havoc but that's ok.

    PCT is going smooth. I'm running a cut diet and BF is going down again. I feel like I am retaining muscle that I gained too.

    Your progress is very good from the pictures. If i could give any advice it would be, first of all, to move from the breakfast/lunch/dinner thing and start doing 5-6 small meals throughout the day, this is probably even more beneficial for cutting than for bulking. Beyond that, I think you would benefit more from bigger, heavier freeweight exercises than the lower weight, more machine-based ones I am seeing.

    Some people would argue with me and your results are good so don't get me wrong here but i believe that weightlifting gains are really ALLL about how much weight you are lifting.

Beyond that, I think you would benefit more from bigger, heavier freeweight exercises than the lower weight, more machine-based ones I am seeing.

    Thanks for the feedback. It's in the works, in fact I increase how much I lift a little bit every time I work out. Also I try to make sure I include the big three at least once per week (I hit each body part twice a week). That's one heavy day and one lighter day.

    PCT is going well. Toremifene has very few sides but I am experiencing some moods and I feel a little depressed. Libido is a little bit down. My gains are still there.

    I've been dosing toremifene 60 mg per day, so I did 3 days at 120 mg and dropped to 60mg/day since.

    I'm at 1900 per day and seeing fatloss. Strength is good but cutting the fat is more important for me now. I will try to keep as much muscle as possible but I need to cut some fat.

    Hmm very impressive gains on that amount of cals, I'm planning on an epi recomp and looks I'm going to have to really think about my daily intake...is there a general rule for recomp/cuttiing on a ph for your total amount of cals, how did you come up with yours?
