Great news bro! Thank goodness it wasn't anything too serious. But what's hawthorn and ubiquinol? are they ingredients a part of one of the supplements you're taking?

10-16-2012, 03:48 PM
Your doctor was not against you taking Epi? And despite having a seizure because of high blood, pressure you are going to continue your cycle?
I see you are getting encouragement from others on here to continue. I'd recommend you don't. At least stop now, do PCT, get healthy and give it another shot in a couple of months.
10-16-2012, 03:54 PM
Yeah makes me happy! Hawthorn is helpful in regulating blood pressure and can aide in keeping BP lower. Ubiquinol is an advanced form of CoQ-10, and aides in improved cardiovascular function and can also lower blood pressure as well.Originally Posted by jasonk202

He knows I only have a few days ledt, and advised to stop and resume physical relations in a couple days...or to finish out the last week of my cycle and abstain from sex until finished. What I had was called a TIA, not a seizure. It is like a mini stroke in a way.Originally Posted by leftside1
I do only have 7 or 8 days left, and I am going to continue UNLESS I do have another one, or my blood pressure becomes abnormally high again
10-16-2012, 04:00 PM
good thing i've been keeping up with your thread. i almost didn't include Hawthorn and Ubiquinol into my cycle.
10-16-2012, 04:03 PM
I believe that Ubiquinol could be optional for some, but I highly recommend it! And hawthorn is certainly a MUSTOriginally Posted by jasonk202

-Calf raises 50x20x3
10-17-2012, 03:31 AM
So due to the fact that I lost a solid week or more of progress, I am going to push my diet even harder and continue to bulk dirty, and make as many gains as possible until I'm done with the cycle. Only have about a week left. I have been going 3 days gym & 1 day rest, but will be taking NO rest days after tomorrow until these last 7 or 8 days are finished. Same routine as far as muscle groups and order...just skipping rest day altogether. Gotta make the most of this.
10-18-2012, 04:12 AM
Today was going to be a rest day, but ended up only working the morning shift instead of open to close...so u know what that means gym time. Today was probably the best workout in a couple weeks. I have been given the chance to sample the ConDense preworkout, and took it for the first time today and will be taking it tomorrow and the following day, a total of 3 days. LOVED IT!
-Pushups incline 10x
-Bench press 135x8 155x5 175x5 185x2 135x10 45x15 45x15
-DB Shoulder press 30x8 30x5 35x5 40x3
-Incline DB Press 35x8 40x5 45x5
-Cable pulldown 80x10 90x10 100x8 120x8
-DB Shrugs 55x10 65x10 75x8 85x8
-Cable flys 30x10 40x8 50x5
-45lb plate shrugs each arm- 2 sets x30 & 1 set x20
-Tricep DB overhead extension 40x10 50x10 60x5 60x5
Pump was insanely amazing today, and felt like an animal. ConDense definitely played a role in that! Loved my gym time today, and can't wait for biceps and deadlifts tomorrow ) PR's baby!
10-18-2012, 11:29 AM
Eat eat eat. First day of pct I lost 6 pounds I was at a beautiful unbelievable 180 the biggest I've been, this morning sitting at 174 yesterday was day one pct. eat bro the minute u get off there goes 5 pounds water weight. Strength today was still nice i felt "on" but also taking daa, white flood and activate extreme. Although dropping the water weight is giving me a decent "lean" look.
10-18-2012, 12:59 PM
WTF??? 6 pounds!? That's a little crazy :/ I don't see that happening, but hey I could be wrong. I don't think I've gained much water weight if any..Originally Posted by cokeholio
10-18-2012, 01:07 PM
Idk I couldn't beleive it bro but then again I couldn't beleive I was at 180 I hope I can stay at 175 gonna keep eating
10-19-2012, 04:54 AM
It's way past my bedtime and way late, so I'm just gunna give a brief summary and post my workout. Busted my ASSS off in the gym today, and felt amazing. Hair shedding is to be noted, shedding in the shower. Actually think it helps when I use the conditioner also..? Muscles in the gym are ROCKS. Could workout forever it feels like, just pack a couple meals and some clean underwear and a pillow and stay the night LOL

10-20-2012, 01:45 AM
Not happy that I can't squat. Really pisses me off actually. Workout today was short, ended up going out with the lady n got in a fight and ended up back home anyways. Not in a good mood at all...sometimes wonder why I'm in a relationship at all....

Going to make a couple changes, just a heads up to you guys. Instead of waiting until week 3 of pct for creatine, I am going to start it right away. I feel as if I didn't gain as much as I should of and could have, so I don't want to wait to start creatine. I am hoping to continue climbing in weight and strength throughout my Post Cycle.
2nd change....i am going to implement a 4-day routine instead of 3 days. I feel like I am in the gym too long(definitely am) on Chest/Tri/Shoulder day, so I will be doing CHEST/TRI....BACK/BICEPS/CORE...LEGS....SHOULDERS/CARDIO--- and try this out for a while...
Any respectful critiquing or thoughts on this are welcomed.

Take a sip of protein shake keep in mouth drop in RC swish and down. Dont breathe and chug the rest. I do it with my pm shake add milk it helps
10-24-2012, 07:33 PM
Im on the first day of week 2 and I'm on torem, skin is slightly oily, a little acne on my nose which I'm not prone to never got it bad during puberty .sometimes I notice my moods are different not necessarily like bad or ahole like just different not sure if it's the activate extreme or the torem or both. Either way so far so good honestly I don't ever seem to "notice" the creatine effect except the endurance which I am feeling now
10-25-2012, 01:18 PM
Definitely not looking forward to the acne, especially from the DAA. I was very acne prone for several years, and still have very sensitive skin and have to be careful. Thanks for the tip on the RC taste tooOriginally Posted by cokeholio

I haven't bailed on this thread guys I promise. I have been really busy and studying and working on getting a promotion. I will have the final log review up sometime this week.
Pct is going fine, haven't lost any strength and actually gained 1.5 lbs. Still taking all supports and 4 caps Recycle daily, 2 in the am & 2 in pm with meals, and Tamoxifen 1.4mL split into 2 doses. A bit moody and emotional, could be the Nolva(tamox) or it could just be a lot of the stress and things I'm dealing with at the moment... Probably a mix of my hormones changing and the stress...
11-01-2012, 09:03 AM
I'm on week 3 pct just added erase, looking and feeling great bro how's urs coming along? Are you finding the time to train cuz u really need to make sure ur getting it in.
11-01-2012, 02:00 PM
Hell yeah, pct is going great for me. I'm in the second week. I'm training hard still, just had to prioritize and haven't had time to do the final log/review on the epi. It'll be up tomorrow though. I'm actually still slowly gaining weight, and my diet it somewhat dirty compared to on cycleOriginally Posted by cokeholio
