Toyin' with Testofen & Grapeseed
I got some GSE and bulk fenugreek extract and figured I should make a log, so this will be my first. I'm on my third week of the Anabolic Diet and liking it so far. I'm hoping to get some synergy with the AI affects of gse and test boosting properties of testofen. I started taking the testofen/gse Friday night, so I'm on day 2 basically.

Today's w/o was so-so, had decent pumps in my lats (which has been hard for me to attain). For some reason my back felt janked after my 2nd set of deads, I think I need to work on my form or try rack deads, or sumos, idk.

Good w/o, felt strong on bench, my last two reps went up pretty smooth. This was the first time in a long time I've done BB OH Press, so I had to test the waters. I did get a nice delt pump and I think I will utilize this more.

Still sick, feeling a little better though. My concentration was broken when doing squats as my boxers tore and made for some sh**ty sets. Libido strong this day and throughout weekend.

Not sold on AI effects of GSE, didn't experience any joint dryness, but I didn't play with dose much and it could just be very mild/weak AI at this dose(600mg), and I supplement glucos./chond., so the jury's still out. Its still a potent anti-ox so I'm happy to have lots of it.
I enjoyed the testofen(fenugreek extract). It elevated libido and seemed to mildly improve my mood. Now that I reflect, I had a little more aggression the past few weeks as well.
I made improvements in my body comp., abs are sightly more visible, I believe the AD has helped tremendously regarding this (although my carb-up days have been less than clean). I was unable to make it to Judo for the last 2 weeks, so that sucks.
Strength has been preserved and improved on a few exercises, save for my last couple workouts, which I was sick. I was also pretty stressed during my third and fourth week because of midterms, so I'm sure I had some elevated cortisol.
