    While higher dosing of Formestane on cycle can lead to drier gains, lower does is thought to help with 'wet' gains and will not significantly affect joint health. Running it on an EPI cycle could lead to some major joint issues.

    On cycle Formestane is also used to increase libido, help suppress estrogen, it can also help boost testosterone and aid in fat loss.

    I guess I should have clarified. I know why Formestane is used on cycle with wet compounds and with aromatizable compounds... In fact I have used it during cycles, and like it very much... but here is where I was really going with that:

    Why are you using an AI while on Epi, (an AI)?

    Formestane seems to make more sense for cycles like Tren, 4AD, Bold, etc. where people have estrogen issues because of the cycle. Being that Epi is an AI, what is the rationale for using form? Just the libido?

    Be REALLY careful during PCT that you let your estrogen come back slowly... really make sure your taper of the AI is locked down. Most people's estrogen related problems from Epi come AFTER the cycle.

    From my research and advice I have gotten, using an AI while pulsing EPI is ok.

  4. July 28, 2009 - Day 2

    Workout:

    Squat 5x5
    Bench 5x5
    BB Row 5x5
    Weighted Hypers 2x5
    Weighted situps 4x5

    Diet:

    This is a typical "On" day's food intake:

    5:15am - Pre-WO: Glutamine w/ BCAA
    7:00am - PWO: 24g of Whey, 1/2c oats, 2 Tbsp Mexican Chocolate
    8:30am - Turkey ham frittata w/ spinach; 1 banana; 1c Sweet potato
    11:30am - 1c FF cottage cheese; 1.5 tbsp Natty PB; fish oil
    2:30 pm - 8oz. Chix thigh; 3 cups veggies; 1c brown rice; fish oil
    5:30pm - 6oz. beef; 3 cups spinach salad (olive oil & lemon dressing) w/ tons of crunchy veggies; 1/2 avocado; fish oil
    8:00pm - small protein shake or cottage cheese, jerky etc; 1 oz. almonds.

    This pretty consistently gets me to the following macros:

    2,900 - 3,200 cals @ 40p/35f/25c

    Supps:

    Taurine, MSM&G, Life Support

    -----------------
    Thoughts, cheap shots and bon mots:

    Good workout today. I felt a little warmer than usual. I didn't sleep very well last nigt probably due to the excitement of 'starting.' I've eaten a lot of food so far today and I'm still hungry - I guess that's a good thing!

  5. Im in.

    Looking forward to seeing your results, will be interesting to see how you go with pulsing Epi - something I have looked into myself.

    Thoughts, cheap shots and bon mots:

    I felt really good today and had a really good night's sleep last night. Other than that, I don't have much to report.

  7. What kind of weight are your pushing on this routine? I see exercises....don't see any numbers!

    While I'm going to post numbers, I will post percentage increase for every 10 day period and any PRs I set in the gym.

  9. Felt pretty good in the gym today. Took 20mg pre- and 10mg post. I haven't really noticed anything out of the ordinary.

    Onward and upward!

  10. August 3, 2009 - Day 8

    Workout:

    2-4-6-8-10-8-6-4-2 reps for time:
    KB swings (2 pood)
    24" Box Jumps
    Hanging leg raise

    --------------
    I had a good weekend, with a slightly "off day" diet-wise yesterday. County fair and the races were fun and I had a couple of tasty food items I would otherwise not eat. No worries - all things in moderation.

    It feels good to be at the start of Week 2 and I'm looking forward to increasing the EPI tomorrow and killing it in the gym!

  11. August 4, 2009 - Day 9

    Workout:

    Squat 5x5
    Bench 5x5
    BB Row 5x5
    Weighted Hypers 2x5
    Weighted situps 4x5

    -----------------------
    So, today is Day 4 of EPI use (20mg pre- and 10mg 1.5 hours PWO) and I've noticed a trend. It takes an hour or so for me to feel "anything" from the EPI. I take it at 5:15, walk to the gym, warm-up, etc. and by the time I get through the Bench warm-ups, I get super fired up! This has led me to perform very well on the last exercises of the day, BUT the EPI hasn't kicked in for the squats. So, I am going to wake up a little earlier and see if I can get in the groove better for squats.

  12. That's too bad the epi takes so long to kick in - I swear that I usually feel it within 10 minutes. Have you been taking your epi with some sort of fat? If not do so as it will help with absorption.

  13. August 6, 2009 - Day 11

    Workout:

    Overhead Press 5x5
    Deadlift 3x5
    Chin-ups 3xF
    Incline DB 1x5
    Prone Bridges 3x30sec

    EPI: 40mg

    ------------------------
    Today's workout was sick! I crushed everything in sight - I would have eaten a 45lb plate if some guy didn't hold me back!

    I feel strong, motivated and determined.

    I took your advice AND woke up a little earlier. Coincidence that I had a great workout? Dunno.

  14. Glad you had a good workout - hormones are fat-soluble so I always try to take mine with 5-10g of fat (nuts, pb, olive/mac oil, etc).

  15. August 10, 2009 - Day 15

    Workout:

    15 - 12 - 9 reps of:
    - Pull-ups
    - KB swings, 2 pood
    - Dips

    ------------------------
    Today starts week No. 3 of this cycle. So far I have had zero sides except for a few headaches. BP is fine, no lethargy, no mood swings, nada.

    I guess the only sides are increased lifts and lower BF%. I'm down 1/4" around my navel and lost 2 pounds of scale weight so far.

    I'm liking the results so far!

  16. Sounds like things are going well - im keeping an eye on this one.

  17. Coach, let's get this thing moving again...

  18. ^^^X2 man, how's everything going?

  19. how is this going
    I was thinking of doing the same thing

  20. Any updates?

    So... what was the verdict here? Anyone else have a link to a complete Epi pulse log?
    Your fastest weight is your best weight

    No link to an Epi Pulse log - but this thread here does talk about an interesting method of pulsing which I intend to try out.

    Pulsing M-drol

  23. Hmmm....?????Anybody?lol
