Okay sweet. Well, let's start with some stats.
I'm 23 years old, 6'3", 180 lbs, ~12% bf.
My current max lifts are about... 300 for squat, 195 for bench, let's not even discuss deadlifts. Haha
I've been training seriously for a little over a year. My goals by the end of this cycle are to squat 330, bench 225, and weigh 185+ without gaining anymore fat. I think those are reachable goals.
I work at a gym and lift 5 days a week. I don't really do cardio while bulking cause I have a tough time gaining weight as is.

So today is day 1.
I did biceps and had a pretty good workout. I normally do a back and bis day, but I'm doing squats tomorrow and don't wanna have anything interfere. btw, I think I'm gonna cycle off my creatine when my osta starts kicking in.
Barbell curls: 75 x 12, 85 x 10, 85 x 8
Incline bench db curls: 30s x 10, 30s x 7 (then drop set
with 25s and
got 4 more reps)
then 25s x 10 (then drop set
with 20s and
got 3 more reps)
Concentration curls: 20s x 12, 20s x 10, 20s x 10, 20s x 7
Arms were lookin pretty pumped, (not from the osta, prolly just from the dropsets and whatnot).
Day 1 done. And forgive me if the format is sloppy as I'm doing this all from my phone.
And any advice is welcome, just don't be a d!ck about it

Biceps are sore as hell (I love that). Mixed my osta in a glass of OJ today and it went down smooth. Definitely how I'm doing it from now on.
Just finished my legs workout
Squats- 205 x 12, 225 x 11, 225 x 10
Started to do lunges but my right quad started cramping on the first rep
straight leg deadlifts- 135 x 12, 135 x 10, 135 x 9
Then supersets of leg extensions/ curls
Leg extensions- 10 plates x 15, 11 x 13, 12 x 10 (drop
set with 9 x 5 more reps)
Leg curls- 11 plates x 14, 11 x 13, 12 x 11 (drop set with
9 for 5 more reps)
Wiped off the machines and wobbled my way out. Haha. Definitely gonna feel rough for the next few days.

You should notice fuller muscles/pumps and increased endurance during week 2 and then week 3 Osta will fully kick-in and you should notice the strength increases. I did a 6 week 17.5mg run in Sep and there was definitely some suppression (not shutdown) that starting appearing in week 4 so taking a test boosting/estrogen reducing supp would be worthwhile.
Good luck with the run.

I see your reps are 10-12+
If you're trying to add mass, you should lift heavier weight and lower your reps to around 8. Especially your deadlift, pulling 135 is a warm up if you're doing a set of 12 then a set of 10. Try your 135 but don't count that warm up set. Then add at least 20 lbs and go from there.
Your dead lift should be much stronger than any other lift.
Just my .02

Okay. Maybe I'm not calling it what it is... I thought it was called a straight leg deadlift where you elevate yourself on a box, keep ur legs almost straight, but not locked, and bend over with the weight. Its almost entirely hamstrings that do the lifting, as apposed to regular deadlifts where I use like 225 x 10Originally Posted by threeFs

Day 3 -
Took the osta with OJ with no problems. Took my creatine and beta alanine before I left to workout... but my car wouldn't start, so I couldn't make it to work/ the gym (I work at a gym). I'm pretty damn sore from the last couple workouts tho, so it didn't break my heart to take the day off. Gotta work tomorrow tho, so hopefully I can figure out what's wrong with my whip. I'm just posted up today watchin Jersey Shore (you know you love it!).

In up in here..just started osta as part of my post cycle @ 15mg ed for 6 weeks. Will bump it up depending on how I react
To the op,
GL bro. Any chance you got research peptide from unique?
12-17-2012, 10:58 PM
Thanks man. And oh yea... let's just say I got it from a very "unique" source. Haha. Btw, supposedly in pct, u should take like 10mg or less to let your test rise naturally, too high of a dose will supress it. But I'm no expert on that.Originally Posted by Superman_777

No one is agreeing on this it is getting extremely frustrating everyone says something different. I went from an extremely mild ph cycle into a sarms/pct cycle and I seem to have recovered just fine. I plan on using S4 and GW until I start another very mild ph cycle but after that I'm running a full 8 week pct with serm and no sarms because this is just getting ridiculous
12-18-2012, 12:48 AM
Yea, true. Well, a very mild ph cycle probably didn't supress you much anyways. But I feel like, if you need some pct after a osta only cycle, then it must not be suitable for a ph cycle's pct. Most people seem to agree that low dosages are fine tho. Idk, I say try it and let us know, cause there's definitely a lack of info on SARMsOriginally Posted by JD261985

S4 PCT???. SARMS are a pain in that some people suffer suppression and some don't so it's just a case of trying them for yourself and keeping some libido boosting products on hand if you do have issues.
After 6 weeks of Osta (17.5mg) I experienced the same issues as the OP in the S4 thread. 3 weeks of DAA/Erase didn't completely resolve the issue so I switched to AI Perform and within a week or so everything was back to normal. After this experience I'll be using AI Perform with the S4 run I have planned for Jan.
12-18-2012, 11:59 AM
Yea, I was planning daa/erase too. I also have about... 80mg of nolva sittin around. Think I should do like 10mg for 4 days, then 5mg for 8 days? Definitely want test back to normal ASAPOriginally Posted by warsteiner

12-18-2012, 03:50 PM
Yea. I kinda felt the same way. I'm thinkin I should start erase during the end of my cycle, instead of PCT. Good idea or no? Cause I wouldn't think it would do anything negative to my cycle, and it would reduce the estrogen before I stop the osta. IdkOriginally Posted by tyga tyga

Day 4 -
Out of OJ, so I took my osta with cran-tangerine juice... didn't go down as smooth. Legs are even more sore than yesterday. Car started today, so I got to go to work/ workout
Forgive me, as I don't know the proper names for some of these exercises.
Seated overhead DB press: 60s x 9, 60s x 8, 60s x 6
Seated DB shrugs: 60s x 12, 60s x 10, 60s x 12
Hanging lateral raises? (Where you grab a vertical bar with one hand, and hang to the side, and raise a DB with your free hand). 25 x 10, 25 x 8, 25 x 8
Standing DB shrugs: 65s x 11, 65s x 8, 65s x 8
Standing lateral raises: 25s x 10, 25s x 6, 20s x 8
Reverse flys: 25s x 9, 25s x 8, 25s x 5, 20s x 6
Felt pretty good during my workout. Could use a couple new exercises as I seem to do the same ones every week.
Still not feeling any effects of osta (not expecting to for about another week, but figured id keep you updated). Strength and weight are the same, libido seems normal.
The only possible effect is that I've had slight pressure in my head, not even enough to call it a headache. Just that if I don't drink any water for a couple hours, it becomes noticable. Nothing serious tho
