  7. Good luck bro, you will prolly respond well to 3-4 Dth a day. Stay focused, and give it hell. Try to notice any increase in aggression, or shortness with people. It just kinda creeps up on ya sometimes.

    Is the 2 a day really necessary for the first 5 days or can I go straight to 3-4 a day? I feel stuff, but it's just placebo because I am glad to be back and rededicated for the summer.

    yeah I have heard it is great that is why I chose it, plus I wanted to get my strength back up to what it used to be. Hopefully I chose a good stack to run with this program, regardless I love drive & DTH seems to be a quality product... so I will get something out of it.

    yeah haha. It was in workout log and also had some workouts in it before I decided to introduce these two bad boys (drive & DTH).

    Sorry about not informing you and the rest of the gang who was following. I do have a question though for anyone with Riptoe background.... You are supposed to increase your weight by 2.5% per workout, well squats is the only exercise i do 3 times a week, so does that mean increase it each workout day, or just workout A's?

    I would say after like 2 days on 2 if you dont have any adverse reactions, its not a huge issue to jump to 3-4.

  22. GL on the interview results. Hope it went well. How are things feeling with this combo in you? I can only imagine the certain drives that are increasing lol.

  23. Libido is starting to go up. I don't even realize it till I find myself thinking about it haha. Agression hasn't yet though as I am already a pretty short temper person. Going to the gym. I bumped up to 3 DTH today also as Trip said.

  24. Day 3

    Squat: working set 3x5x230

    flat bench: working set: 185

    Deadlift: Didn't get a chance to do (way too many people at the gym)


    • DTH: 3 tabs (2 at wake up, 1 pre workout)
    • Drive: 6 caps (3 wake up, 3 pre workout)



    • None of these lifts were hard weight wise, but I am making sure to progress nice and easy as this program suggests
    • Libido is starting to go up, I find myself craving my girlfriend quite frequently haha
    • body composition effects are beginning to come into play ( i believe this is because it is my first week back at my parents house actually eating real & healthy food, but the supplements could be playing a part)
    • The gym was way too packed today and I literally had to wait in lines to do all of these, the free squat/ deadlift was way too packed to even get to do deadlift

  25. i'm interested in seeing how this workout schedule treats you....

  26. I hate waiting in line at the gym.... Hence my 24 hour one I just picked up. It always used to tick me off.

  28. i think i'm pretty lucky...we have a huge variety of machines and the free weights are wayyyyyyy in the back of the gym after all the cardio and machine weights so the free weights usually only get the athletes and intense lifters...

  30. just finished todays dosage worth of DTH & drive, this is my second day at 3 tabs/day on DTH and I could tell a difference between it and 2 tabs. I think I will run 3 tabs for a week and then bump up to 4 tabs a day for awhile and eventually go up to 5-6 tabs to evaluate where I am feeing the best effects at.

    I also forgot to add that I used Golden gains post workout yesterday. Usually I am in the mood to drink it and it is a refreshing thing to have post workout, but yesterday I didn't enjoy it and found myself wanting to not even finish it....

  31. I love that about DTH, the fact that one can play around and tweak the dosing quite easily for effect.

    I had read something about taking off the training for a few days after each A,B,A or B,A,B circuit with this workout and I didn't really feel like I needed it. I will be hitting the gym tomorrow however.

  37. Hey guys just got back from the gym and I am feeling great, I figured I would take a few photos to show what im looking at right now. I went with a workout buddy and tried his workout today... I loved it. It blew SS out of the water intesity and volume wise (my body takes loads of volume to grow). We did drop sets/pyramids on flat bench up to 225 and back down, same with incline, we then hit machine flyes, reverse cable curls, regular cable curls, BB curl, and DB alt curl. WOW I feel great.

    DTH: 3 tabs (2 am, 1 PM)
    Drive: 6 caps (3am, 3pm)

    Drinking my golden gains right now... nice and cold and them eating a tuna steak!

  38. went with my buddy again and did back and triceps. A nice workout, but I never really feel it in my back for some reasons. Also, my biceps are sore today... this is the first day I have been sore in quite awhile.

    I am thinking of switching to my friends routine because I just feel better on it, I feel like I am getting more accomplished... I don't know though we will see.

    I am still at three DTH per day and 6 drive per day, I think I will take tomorrow off DTH and then start at 4 per day on monday... does that sound good to you all?
