Andro Mass/Andro Hard 8 Week Log
This will be my second cycle, and the first log i have ran on this forum.
Some background info:
5'7 167 pounds @ 10%
Bench: 315 x 5
Squat: 365 x 4
Deadlift: 505 x 1
Been lifting for 9 years now, very seriously for 4. Ran a cycle of protomax in the spring for my first cycle, pretty disappointing results until i got to 125 mg. My usual lifting scheme is geared toward hypertrophy with some heavy sets added in because i have a big ego. usually lift every other day to give my body adequate rest but may go 2 on 1 off once the products kick in if i feel like i am recovering fast enough.
Wanted to first start out by thanking primordial performance for this semi-sponsored log (i bought some product and they provided me with the rest)
This log will be starting on Saturday July 30.
Goals of the cycle will be to add lean mass, some strength and size while not adding fat. Shooting for 8-10 solid pounds over the 8 week period.
3 am/3 ah in the morning/preworkout and 3 am/ah late afternoon
will run creatine throughout the cycle and pct
pct will be:
Pct Revolution: starting during week 3
DAA: starting 1 week before cycle ends and running through the 3rd week of pct.
Will make posts on each lifting day. Posts will include details about the workout, meals for the day and anything else of interest. I will post on off days if there is something useful to mention.
Will be posting before and after pictures as well. May post pics midway through the cycle too. Blood work will come post pct.
Let me know if you have any questions, comments or criticisms.

So the bottles arrived yesterday just in time for a workout! Thanks Primordial for hooking me up with expidited shipping.
Today was day 1 of andromass and androhard. 3 caps of each at 330 PM pre workout and then 3 of each at 9 PM with dinner. Initially I felt a mild burning in my throat for about 10 minutes then it went away.
This could be placebo, but about 30 minutes after taking both I felt this rush of energy, which is odd because I felt dead the whole morning before I took them. It was different than the normal pre-workout caffeine rush, it was much more focused and also happy. I also had a pulsing boner for like 30 minutes straight after taking the pills.
Today was the first day back in the gym after a week off so normally I would have expected a somewhat slow start. That was not the case. Had a phenomenal workout; tons of energy and vascularity and a lot more strength then I would have expected, actually set a PR which I would not have expected since normally I am a little slow during that first workout after a short lay off. Although I was strong and vascular, pumps were only about average, nothing too special there yet, its only the first day though.
Warm up: 5 mins jogging + shoulder pre-habs
Flat Dumbbell Flyes: 15's x 20, 30's x 15, 40's x 12, *55's x 8* *PR*
Decline Barbell Bench: 135 x 5, 225 x 3, 275 x 5, 295 x 5, 260 x 6, 225 x 10, 135 x 21
Slow Complete Pause Close Grip Bench: 135 x 7, 6, 7
Flat Dumbbell Bench: 70 x 8, 70 x 7, 50 x 12 (rest 5 seconds then 5 more reps), 50 x 12 (rest 5 seconds then 5 more reps)
Cable Flye super set with grip pushups: 40's x 15 + 8 pushups, 40's x 15 +
9 pushups, 40's x 17, + 7 pushups
Wide pushups: 11
Sphinx pushups: 5
Diamond pushups: 9
V Pushdowns: 105 x 15, 135 x 8, 105 x 15
2 dumbbell overhead tricep extension: 25's x 8, 10, 9
skullcrusher: 65 x 7, 8, 7
Pushup bounce burnout (do 1 pushup, return to the bottom portion of the rep and bounce slowly 10 times then push back up to the top portion of the rep, that is 1, repeat as many times as possible): 4
Stretch 10 minutes
Overall thoughts: today is the first day so i want to tell myself that PR is placebo, but i honestly felt great in the gym today. Looking forward to this continuing.

Today is day 3 of the cycle and my second workout of the cycle. I have not felt the huge energy rush after taking the pills like I did the first day, but I am starting to feel very pumped and vascular throughout the day. I have also noticed I seem to be sleeping better, although I am not sure if this is related to the cycle.
Today's workout was solid. I did not have a ton of energy, yet I had excellent strength, set 1 PR. About midway through the workout I caught a second wind and felt huge the rest of the day. As I sit here typing this 6 hours post workout I still have so much of a pump in my biceps that if i flex my arm it gets so tight it almost hurts (in a good way). One thing to note about my workouts is that they are quite different than most. I do quite a bit of volume and i do some very heavy moves and some hypertorphy moves. I also incorporate time under tension sets where the entire point of the lift is to get a rediculous pump and increase muscle hypertrophy, on these sets I will use lighter weight and go much slower through the rep range, often pausing at the top and bottom of the rep ranges and flexing the muscles I am working.

Wow 3300 slightly above? Wish mine was that high...mines close to 2000 and my stats are virtually the same, except 1" taller
Goodluck on AM! Strength gets nice after about a week+

Damn Darsh, thats nearly a 1000k a workout. How many times do you workout like that a week?
( at heart )
08-16-2011, 10:29 AM

I lift the same way. Some weeks its 6 days out of 7 at 90% for 1.5hrs a time. Other weeks its day on day off... just depends on how the ligaments, tendons, joints, etc are feeling. I can totally related. Sometimes you just KILL IT in the gym.

I've found that assistance lifts don't effect my CNS, so I never deload them. The big lift, though, is always subject to change.

Today was the 5th day of my cycle and I must say that I indeed felt it kick in today. Slept like a rock last night and woke up really groggy but with an enormous appetite. Took the AM’s with breakfast and had a slight burning feeling for a few minutes after and then showered and headed to the gym. It was on the way to the gym that I noticed I had this huge pump going like I had already worked out, at this point I knew I was feeling it and it was no longer placebo.
Tore shoulders and traps up at the gym today. Had a sick pump and the weights just felt easy, was also more vascular than ive ever been before in my life, saw alotta new veins in my middle delts that ive never seen before. Had one of the other trainers I work with ask what id been taking the past few days so obviously people are noticing. Overall I had a lot of energy and focus and felt really aggressive, almost pissed off but in a good way.
One thing to keep in mind with shoulder day is that I will not go too heavy on the weights. I have been through one shoulder surgery and do not wish to go through another. Shoulders I focus 100% on form, time under tension and the pump, weight is of no concern to me here so keep that in mind if the weights look light compared to other days.
Warmup: shoulder pre-habs
Hang cleans: 135 x 6, 155 x 5, 5, 6
Behind the back barbell shrugs: 135 x 15, 225 x 12, *PR 275 x 8, 8* (felt like nothing, veins coming out of traps, sick pump)
Upright rows: 95 x 12, 11, 10
Db side raise: 10 x 15, 15 x 13
Db rear delt raise: 10 x 13, 15 x 10
Face pulls: 90 x 8, 75 x 11
Incline db flye: 15 x 15, 20 x 15
Low incline db: 40 x 15, 12
Front delt raise superset with Goldberg style plate raise: 15/25 x 10/8
Arnolds db shoulder press: 20 x 9, 8
High to low reverse cable flye: 30 x 11, 12, 13
Scapular pushups on hands: 12
Scapular pushups with grips: 10
Incline scapular pushups on hands: 8
Incline scapular pushups with grips: 8
Incline regular pushups: 12
Incline pushups with grips: 13
