    I think Westside will work well for a recomp, I like to train for strength when calories aren't very high, it just seems easier to recover from. The cardio sounds good but maybe on the short side because that's like what 20 minutes maybe you could start pushing further with your runs as you get in better shape...
    Which brings me to the last point, the tren shouldn't impair your cardio. I mean it can for some people but usually they're talking about REAL tren although the PH tren is pretty similar. For me anyway, steroids never impair my cardio... Last summer on my recomp I started off with Tren and i was doing so much cardio i was consistently getting better at it. Which is good because when i got better at it, I just made my sessions longer and accomplished even more fat burning .

    So i think on the cardio you should be able to improve on the tren, if you have to just take it slow and push through it, probably better to do a lower intensity type cardio anyway. Then start pushing the cardio longer as you become more capable.

    The most likely problem you could encounter running around on Tren is calf pumps/cramps. Sooo take some taurine, stay hydrated, stretch them out first, all that jazz.

  2. So I guess a "REcomp" is impossible unless u do a cycle...or is it??? I carb cycle and all that...aside from the milk a day my diet is clean...I lift 4x a week and just began hiit after calves nabs on off day...will I be able to maintain and burn fat atleast...maybe if gain a lil???

    My bad didn't know this was in anabolic section....still welcome answers though

  4. it is virtually impossible to add muscle while you lose fat without the presence of anabolics in your body. even with them its next to impossible.

    one requires a calorie defecit while the other requires a calorie surplus

    not at all, just have to perfect your diet.. Maybe look into a few natty supps that could help you out.. i would def recommend a nutrient partitioner (recompadrol, anabolic pump, glycobol,etc)

    I have been running a pretty successful recomp with nothing but the natabolic stack, recompadrol, and my staple supps.. No where near as successful as if i were using anabolics, but I know its possible for me anyways..

    I think it'd also require you to eat slightly closer to 8 meals a day. I'm not saying this has to be done on a ton of cals either. Just spread your cals throughout the 8 meals and just make sure you'll slightly over maintenance. I think that'll help.

  8. never thought of that, i currently eat 7 meals on workout days..

  9. Recomping without a cycle is just really really slow. But it depends on where you're at. If you're new to lifting and you're also a fatass, it's pretty easy to add muscle and lose fat. If you're an experienced lifter with decent bodyfat, it's so goddamn tough.

    yes, but its still recomping, very slowly gaining muscle and losing fat... I guess ill be able to fully enjoy the recomp in a couple years when i finally decide to run a cycle..

  11. unreal,

    I've talked with you a long time ago and at the time we were both thinking that just bulking and then cutting would likely yield better results than trying to recomp. Would be interested to hear if your thoughts changed from way back in the day or how you feel about it now. I've always felt that just bulking for one cycle and then cutting for another was the best way but I'm more than happy to be wrong.

  12. When some people go on a carb cycle they put more lean muscle on than when they bulk, I think people respond differently what most people think of as 'bulking' and 'cutting' shedules.

    I think putting on lean muscle and loosing BF% is entirely possible if your willing to work at it. And just as effective - if not more in terms of achieving and maintaining more permenant goals.

  13. This is truely an inspiring thread, Excellent info, youre a diamond Unreal, much respect.

    I was going to go all out on cutting in january with a carb cycle, But Ill use the valuable info in your first log here and design a recomp for myself. Im thinking of using proviron full time from Jan till April with a bit of Letrozole if I can get hold of them, so far all my sources have chickened out. Ive already got 500 Dbol at 5mg, I might just pulse that with PCT instead.

    Insulin senstivity get less and less during the day, say if you get up at 7am, by 5pm your body at its lowest already and eating meals with high carbs at this stage is pointless, your body will use whatever carbs youve stored at night, no need to eat more late in the evening, infact its the last thing you want to do, a little bit of protien will trick your body into opening up the fat stored for carbs

    I thought steroids make you gain muscle?
    Im having the same problem with deca Im taking at the moment, it completely supressed my appetite, I was shaking and making myself feel sick forcing myself to eat, but I havnt manage to eat enough - its ruined my cycle so far . Ive bought some Dbol and its helping, also starting tri-tren now and Ive heared that will help too.

  14. I added in 100mg of anadrol 50, and it fixed the weight problems. now im swole like a mo fo.

    He missed the sarcasm part i think

  16. its helped with the hunger, but I havnt seen any water retension yet, infact Ive dropped 3 kilos over the weekend, but that was due to eating more carbs (I know most wont undertand what I just said) and thermogenics.

    who? you? me? him? its so hard to hear sarcasm with words on a screen. I can only assume he knew my post was a joke, and he was just going along with it, in which I just kept on going.?

    but who knows.

  18. this thread is all a figment of unreals imagination


    if u wanna recomp DO NOT LISTEN TO UNREAL NO MATTER WHAT!
    Test e/dbol/epi/winnie

  19. The things I would like to say to that would nicely earn me an infraction and get me banned, so Ill say it politely:

    schwellington go away you negative ignorant individual

  21. scwell is just messing with unreal. we all love scwel, he's like our little brother with a learning disability. you cant not like him.

  22. Pulsing Dbol alternated with appetite supressors would work nicely on a carb cycle - cleaver me

  24. I've been recomping for the last 12 weeks, almost exactly as Unreal has outlined. I've lost 20lbs of fat and gained 5lbs of lean body mass. This is all while getting stronger every week. Oh, and its been all natural. I've got some pretty sweet before and afters if ppl want me to throw em up. I still need about 10 more lbs of fat gone in order to look as sick as I want. Wish me luck.

    Just realized that this was for a recomp "cycle". So I probably shouldn't have posted my experience since there has been no cycle, lol. oh well.
