Background: Im currently 170lb with around 10-9%BF. At the moment when I initiate this cycle I will have been on off cycle for exactly the amount I was on (on cycle+PCT ). In my previous cycle I went all the way up to 189lb with a Epi cycle with some added 4-ad,osta and decavol. Strangely I went down by about 19 pounds in a cut/recomp I did over my PCT and off cycle period but I managed to maintain all of my strength. I attribute this to the IF protocol ive been following ever since (reason why I will attempt to IF during this bulk, except I will be doing 16 hours fast 8 hour eating window).
The objective of this cycle is mainly to skyrocket my strength as much as possible. Secondly I want to add as much lean muscle as I can while keeping my bf% as close as possible to my current number.
Given the harsh nature of the cycle I will be taking I want to minimize the damage to my body.
Cycle support (1 scoop/day) for a week.
TUDCA (250mg/day) for a week.
The compounds I’ll be using are M-sten and Halodrol (both bought as bulkpowders from elitemuscles.com that I’ll turn into a solution that I will take 3 times a day to split the dose evenly).
Creatine (which im currently cycling off as well) 10g/day
Opti-men Multivitamin 2 pills a day (2/3 of the dose)
Fish oils 6g a day
BCAA (early in the morning while fasting and preworkout ) 10g/dose
Green tea extract 50% extract 1.5g/day
Cissus quadrangularis 3g/day
Korean ginseng 648mg twice a day (im replacing all stimulants during this cycle to prevent BP)
A stimulant free preworkout (still in the lookout)
Cycle support (1 scoop/day)
I will be attempting to use this particular factor to try something new and actually worth logging. There’s a bunch of msten-halodrol logs out there, mine will include a IF protocol with it to attempt to make it as close to a lean cut/recomp as possible.
IF protocol : 16h fast/8hour eating window
I will start with 3500cal on workout days and 3000cal on rest days and adjust depending on weekly progress. (Given that reports say gains are anywhere from 10-15 pounds for similar cycles I will be expecting anywhere between 1.5/2 pounds gained per week (correct me if im wrong)
This is where I want to focus on my goal of strength followed by mass. I will be mainly training with compound movements for 6 reps.
Main lifts: I will always include these in each of their respective days as a good gauge of my progress.
Chest/shoulder/tricep: Incline or flat Bench/Weighted Dips
Back/Biceps: Deadlift/Weighted pull ups/Weighted Chin ups
Shoulder/triceps: Shoulder press/ Military press
Legs: Squats (ATG)/Leg press
Depending on the specific days I will add supplementing exercises to these.
Since this is a harsh cycle I will be doing a rather over the top PCT to ensure no losses or problems afterwards.
UR-spray: One bottle during PCT and another bottle following off cycle.
DAA: 6g front load last week of cycle and 3g/day during PCT.
This is a very extended version to explain why and stuff, when i actually create the log its going to be a lot more concise. Anyways Please give a quick look and give me some advice on how to make it better.
