    DAY 10:

    Alrighty boys I think the effects are slowly approaching. I do know that my strength is up for sure. My deadlifts today were improved already from last time, and I felt like I could've squeezed a couple more out if my grip wasn't slipping. Chalk is gunna be necessary! Any places you guys know of that have it? Maybe it's just in my head, but I felt a little more vascularity in my chest for some reason. Again, maybe placebo lol idk...

    Took half a scoop pre-workout of White Flood, didnt feel anything. Ended up taking another half, making a full scoop altogether. Not my fav preworkout I've tried, but the energy felt clean and crisp if that makes sense. Felt a little more focused.. and my Ubiquinol probably helped keep my heartbeat under control.. not sure yet. Something I didnt like about White Flood is that it doesnt pack the skin heat feeling and jitter(beta alanine I believe?)

    anyways, not going to post my whole workout because its late and I'm exhausted...just going to post the "main" lifts!
    -Lat pulldown- 105x10, 105x10, 135x8, 150x5
    -T-bar rows w/barbell- 45x10, 45x10, 90x10, 90x10
    -DEADLIFT- 175x8, 175x8, 225x8, 255x7
    -Preacher Curls- 65x8, 75x8, 85x5, 90x4 ALSO WENT UP SLIGHTLY
    -DB Incline Curls- 20x16, 20x16

    AGAIN, not all of my w/o is included but gave you the gist !

    Macs: cals-3250, protein-240g, carbs- 280g

    Peace!

    As I said in one of my posts earlier today, I did bump my dose to 4 pills a day now(40mg). My chest workout today was pretty normal in terms of how I felt, but noticed I feel a little stronger on my last set of each lift...although that could have been the C4 pre-w/o I used today. I had to stop my shrugs early and go home because my heart started pulsing uncontrollably and almost hurt. Guessing it was high BP, but not positive. Will be buying a bp monitor asap to keep handy and monitor myself as needed.

    Bench press- 125x10, 145x8, 165x6, 165x4, 105x14 (definitely feelin my chest pop on that lay set
    DB shrugs- 55x16, 65x14, 75x10
    DB decline press- 35x8, 35x8, 40x10
    DB shoulder press- 25x10, 25x8, 30x8, 30x6
    Barbell cable pulldown- 60x16, 80x14, 100x12, 100x10
    Cable Flys- 40lb each 10x, 10x, 8x, 50lb 4x
    Plate shrugs 45lb each arm- 30x, 30x

    DAY 11:

    Sorry it's a day late, I didn't get home from work last night until almost 1 in the morning..so there was no way I was logging ha. So this is for yesterday, day eleven.

    So it was LEG DAY :-) man, maybe I am just lucky and not experiencing side effects because I don't think the epi has really hit me fully...or it truly HASN'T taken full effect yet. (which is very likely because I should still have another week before I probably really start having fun with gains). But whatever the case, my strength is rising. NOT ONLY ARE MY LIFTS UP, BUT MY CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING AS WELL.

    -Leg press- 195x10, 195x10, 285x8, 335x6
    -Calf press- 195x20, 195x20, 195x20
    -Squats- 155x8, 155x8, 195x6, 215x3
    -Seated leg curl- 70x12, 90x12
    -Hip abduction machine- 30x20, 50x14 (first time using)

    Keep in mind that my squats might dramatically go up, but not all because of the Epi. Earlier in my log I stated that for a couple years squats were really not part of any training of mine due to personal reasons. So I am hitting it hard on them right now!

    Looking good...your leg routine looks similar to mine, both on heavy days and hypertrophy...you will be suprised how much strength and weight gains you will make by increasing deads and squats...ive been focusing on box quats, my legs have gotten so much thicker, just not defined which is frusterating

    Thanks homie. Yeah I'm making sure to try and work all sides of my legs and get them strong. I still need to try the box squats

    I actually keep my feet planted just slightly wider than shoulder width on both lifts. Wide squats can also be really beneficial. Yeaah this is my first epi run, and I hope to run SD in the future. Time will tell.

    DAY 12: Again I'm a day late, but better than not at all. Work has been stupidly busy and hectic and I've been the closer 3 days in a row. Thought maybe I was getting an ear infection or getting sick but it turns out I think I just needed a real good night of sleep. Popped my 3z pills last night and passed out! Day 12 was a much needed rest day.

    MACS- Cals 3,250 & Protein 230g & Carbs 350g (higher than I'd like)

    Off to hit chest for day 13 !!

    Just got home from the gym guys. I think it's safe to say that strength mode has been activated before I hit the gym, my veins looked like pipe cleaners under my skin! After I hit the first sets of my workouts, I was looking quite a bit fuller inside my shirt and definitely gave me a boost of confidence.

    Also a couple updates: Erections are still strong. No acne. No extra rage which is good lol I have a bad enough temper on my own. No cramping yet.

    @Cokeholio: no dryness whatsoever for me. Are you taking glucosamine and how much? I take a glucosamine msm at rec dose and preloaded it 10 days before my cycle

    DAY 13:

    As I stated earlier, I think it's safe to say I'm finally there where I feel things are in motion. I was more than happy with the way I felt throughout my time at the gym today. Body felt great and my muscles were pumped. My lifts were definitely stronger and easier to finish off. Going to push myself really hard(but safely) now that I've got the extra boost

    -Pushups to warmup- 2 sets of 25
    -Dual axis chest press machine warmup- 90x14, 70x12
    -Bench press- 125x10, 145x8, 165x6, 175x4, 105x12
    -Barbell cable pulldown- 60x14, 70x12, 80x10, 90x8
    -DB Shoulder press- 25x10, 25x8, 35x8, 35x6
    -DB Incline press- 30x10, 35x8, 40x8
    -DB shrugs- 55x14, 65x12, 75x10
    -Plate shrugs- 45x30, 45x30
    -Cable flys- 40x8, 40x6, 40x6, 30x6
    -Tricep OH thrust- 35x14, 40x12, 45x8

    Never thought of almonds. I throw a whole egg into my casein shake every night, sometimes even two of em. I'll grab some cottage cheese today and try that out. And I love putting egg whites in all my shakes when I can afford it. Plus I usually have whole eggs in the a.m. but lately they upset my stomach. Weird..

    It's very possible I need a higher dose, idk though. Either way I'm staying at 40 another week. I'm only two weeks in, so it's not a surprise to me that I'm just barely making gains

    Man I don't know WTF is up, but the last couple days my stomach has been nonstop churning and rumbling. I feel like I have to **** almost every hour, so I go to the bathroom and it ends up being just a huge pocket of gas.... Sorry for the image lol but I need some advice :\

    My advice would be to buy some milk of mag or take stool softners to clean out your system, you feel much better, your body is trying to tell you something ha

    Whats milk of mag? And all stool softeners do really is help with constipation(which is far from the problem) haha
