IBE Sponsored AE taking it to the (Proto)Max
Welcome to the next installment folks. Let me start by giving a big thanks to Roadblock, AK and all the fine folks at IBE. I greatly appreciate this opportunity as I had been looking to get back into the PH world, and this was a wonderful chance with a very interesting compound.
This log will be starting on 7/31. The reason for the slight delay is that my summer job (I am a teacher) is over this Friday and then I am off to an all inclusive resort just south of Cancun. I will be returning next Friday 7/30, most likely a tad chunkier . With that said, my diet will be quite strict and somewhat restricted, as I look to lose what I will gain while in Mexico.
Here is what my current split looks like. It is different than most, as my over 2 decades of experimentation and experience have shown me what seems to work for me personally. So I do not necessarily recommend this for anyone else. It has a powerlifting base (as I will be competing again in November)
Monday: Back Width/Bis
Friday: Back thickness (deads are focused)
Also, 7 days a week I run on an empty stomach every morning. During the school year I am up at 4am to get an early start, during the summer however I give myself a 1 hour window and get up at 5. I do all my lifting and running at home (see the pics below)
Orange Triad (never without it)
I have attached pictures of what has become known as "The Sweat Gym". It is no doubt my favorite part of my house, as during the school year my 7.5 year old daughter comes down when she gets home and does her homework while I lift. It is one of the reasons I made this spot at home.
Ok people.....be back soon

reserved for before and after pics a well as final review
Taken 7/21/10 9am 206lbs
Ok, so it is 9/4/2010 and here is the summary of the log.
My weight is 207lbs. Up 1lbs from the start of the log, which is not what I expected out of this to be honest.
Slight recomp effect. I do look a tad leaner than I did prior
Muscle hardness even at a state of relaxtion, my muscles seemed denser
Vascularity increased from an early stage, which I always was happy to see
No strength gains whatsoever none of my lifts saw any gains, everything over the last 5 weeks stayed entirely stagnant
1lbs weight gain not nearly what I expected. I do realize that proto is very mild, however, I expected something more along the lines of 1andro, which I saw more significant gains
Overall, it is tough for me to grade this. The major reasons for me to make a run at a ph/ds once a year is for strength and weight, and since I had neither, this would be an overall subpar review. However, its mild, so for someone looking to give a ph/ds a shot for the first time, this might be a very easy transition one to use.
Once again though, I thank IBE and their reps for giving me an opportunity to be open and honest here about their new product.

The gym is my little sanctuary, the best room in my house. Music goes on and the door closes, just awesome

Subbed. Happy someone with a powerlifting background is running this, I'm really interested to see how this affects your strength.
Are you recomping here? Dosing?

What will your dosing scheme be like? I did not see it laid out.
Have fun on your trip, and good luck on the cycle when you get back!

Just FYI: Pat Arnold's guinea pig was running 100 mg/day, and most logs seem to think the compound needs dosing around that level, or at least 75 mgs/day.
How long do you plan to run it? And if a reasonable amount of time has passed with less than expected results, will you be willing to up the dose?
