KILLED THE SQUATS AND LEG PRESS, FELT LIKE AN ANIMAL!!!
I hit PR's again on both and wanted to do a couple more sets lol

Bro I'm gonna start a cycle like yours. what are your results in terms of weight and bf till now?
10-09-2012, 03:16 PM
Unfortunately I have no way of measuring bf% and won't be able to give that stat. I do know that my body fat has definitely been cut though, and my quads are hard as rocks and the biggest and most solid they've ever been. For weight, I believe I am up 4 pounds. I try not to weigh myself, because I'd like to do it on the last day of my cycle. It's a marathon, not a sprint...so im just trying to be patientOriginally Posted by Superpippo

Today is a needed rest day. I am fighting a cold that has arisen in the last couple days, and hasn't allowed me to eat as much because of a loss of appetite. Gotta listen to my body and get rid of it before it ruins my cycle!
10-10-2012, 03:29 PM
u can train with a cold, not ideal when u have flu like symptoms , aches, fever etc ..Originally Posted by Red9

I have gone up calorie wise about 500 from what I usually eat while I was gaining naturally. These last couple days have really been hard to eat though, and sad to say but the past 3 days have been closer to 2,000-2,500 which is 1,000-1,500 less than what I should be at. When im stock tho I really have almost no appetite so I'm pushing myself even to get those 2,000Originally Posted by Superpippo

keep pushing through bro, can't wait to see the results!

Didn't have time to hit shoulders at all today, so I'm going to hit them tomorrow. Like I said, my macros are way under what they should be and being at the gym with a cold sucks! Constantly blowing my running nose and doing most my breathing through my mouth. Still wanted to do what I could though, only got 2 weeks left ON Macros really need to come up, hopefully start feeling better within a day or two...then it's eating like a BEAST ON STEROIDS TO MAKE UP FOR LOST CALORIES!!! Still leaning out, and definitely putting on body mass. Quads are hard as rocks. Showed my friend my legs and she said "okay wheres the needle marks, you've gotta be on something!" HahaHA...night AM

I think you might be shutting done, make sure you get more than enough vitamins and be careful with overtraining, I think that's what's screwed me.
10-11-2012, 01:00 PM
Well I still am completely able to get hard. Green phlegm....that sounds like what is going on with me...so what's a gutted chest infection??Originally Posted by xXdionysusXx
10-11-2012, 01:27 PM
Getting in a couple meals this morning, which is a much better approach to my day compared to earlier this week....then going to choose a preworkout I either have a sample of or own, and go kill the gym and get them deadlifts in! Going to concentrate a little more on abs today as they are a bit behind from the rest of my body. No homo but soaking in a bath of really hot water for like 20 minutes in an extremely steamy bathroom and the water has aches/pains liquid in it...goal is to clear my chesy and nasal passages a bit and also relieve some of my body soreness before I hit the gym..
10-11-2012, 04:49 PM
I can still get hard and wake up with morning glory, sorry mate I'm British and have to remember not everyone understands our colloquium. I'm upset (gutted) I have a chest infection (the green phlegm).Originally Posted by Red9
Learnt a lot from this cycle and have a log on ukmuscle as -dionysus-; slight thinning of hair (it's been going faster on cycle) my moods have been funny (been a bit sensitive to things that don't normally bother me) natural testosterone production is a major factor in overal health, less test means a weaker immune system. Today is probably my last day and I've got mixed feelings about epi, I do not thinks it's as mild as some would have you believe. The scales don't lie I'm up 6kg (i was on low carbs for 2 months pre cycle and dropped 5kg) my lifts are up marginally but that's surprising given I've been eating carbs again.
I'd like to try epi again but at a higher dose (50mg going up to 60mg) but with something to combat the lethargic feeling and try and keep natural test production as high as possible. I'd love to know how epi works in the body but given that's unlikely will look into pmag/hdrol for the future.

So I posted a thread asking a question, and the quoted words above are what I need help with. Anybody know if it's safe to use Testosterone Igniting Preworkouts while I'm cycling?Originally Posted by Red9

Well guys, I just got home from the gym. I'm beyond pissed and aggravated...my squats were a complete failure. My lower disc and sciatic are becoming very painful, and it clearly showed it ugly head as soon as I was under the bar. I should've been able to warm up on the 2nd set and do my 8 reps of 205 after my first set of 155, but on the 2nd rep I had shooting pain from my disc through my while upper thigh. Needless to say, I probably will not be squatting heavy for the remainder of my cycle...
10-12-2012, 05:26 PM
I popped something my back a few years ago trying to squat a PR. Lets just say il never be squatting heavy again cause it out me out of commission for awhile. Hope it gets better. Get some heat on it.

Yeah it just sucks altogether. I'm hoping I'm not out forever..Originally Posted by PREracing25

I already wear a belt for deads and squats man, every time. I had a belt on. I already knew I had pain in my lower back and sciatica problems, and once you have a back related injury, the belt cannot really keep you safe.Originally Posted by jasonk202

Thought I'd let you guys know that I won't be logging for a couple days. I will be getting an EKG test hopefully Monday, and will not be working out or exercising until I get my results back. I believe I had a seizure last night(this morning) around 3:30am and am very worried about my heart. Whether the Epi had a role in that, I couldn't say...but it was beyond anything I've ever experienced or had happen to me. So, depending on the EKG results, there's a big possiblity I will be ending my cycle a week early and jumping into PCT.... I will keep u guys posted..
10-14-2012, 03:31 AM
daamn bro! hope u get well soon man and the docs find out whats wrong! nothings worth dying for, so if its the epi or u think it is, u should just stop man and get into PCT
10-14-2012, 03:41 AM
Yeah well I would hate to stop the epi when I'm not positive that's what caused it. I'm hating myself for doing absolutely no cardio during my entire cycle; definitely will do plenty cardio in the future, if I'm able to every cycle again at all :\ I should be able to get tested on Monday. The seizure was after like an hour of cardio on a bed if u know what I mean...Originally Posted by SkubaSteve89

My brother, that's horrible news.
10-14-2012, 01:09 PM
Yessir. I have shown absolutely no negative side effects, and been at 50 for two weeks. No back pumps, no extra lethargy, no anger, no sleep disturbances, no increased blood pressure. Been fine up until that seizure..Originally Posted by cokeholio
10-14-2012, 01:11 PM
Makes me really upset... Not only slightly scared but sad at that fact that there's a good chance I may never be able to run another cycle againOriginally Posted by fightclub2012
10-14-2012, 02:48 PM
Nah bro stay positive keep up updated. I just feel like ramping up doses and cycle length can really mess ppl up. I did great on my 4 week 30 mg run next thing I'll do it 4 weeks at 45mg or look into hdrol for next year
10-14-2012, 07:27 PM
get well soon bro, really sucks to hear you're going through such troubles like this one. keep us all updated on your recovery.
10-14-2012, 10:24 PM
Sorry to hear that bro hope it's nothing major and not related to the epi.

Thanks for all of the support and good words guys. Thought I'd let you guys know I had another one last night, but only about 30 seconds long compared to close to 10-12 minutes. I have the day off at work, and will be getting tests run on my brain and heart, and hopefully have some answers by tonight.
10-15-2012, 08:39 PM
I just got home from seeing my doc, and had an EKG done right there. Good news and bad. Good is that my heart is healthy and shows no abnormalities. Bad news is that my blood pressure was definitely higher than normal, and needs to be regulated better.
Lesson learned, DON'T STOP USING HAWTHORN JUST BECAUSE I'M USING UBIQUINOL, BOTH ARE RECOMMENDED. He said that I was fine to continue my cycle. Basically what he thinks is the problem is that at the climax of intercourse, blood pressure is spiked and the Epi is just multiplying the effect and causing me to have a lack of oxygen resulting in what's called TIA's... So...cycle shall be continued )

That's good news man. Yeah I kept HB rolling all the way through with my cycle support. Today's my last day kind of freaked out to start pct tomm. Really hope I can keep all of my gains man that's my biggest fear of pct.
