    I stayed at 30mg. Not sure what my future use will be.

    FINAL REVIEW

    I'm going to split this is up into two separate categories: qualitative and quantitative.

    First, the quantitative:

    Weight
    +7 lbs (196 to 203); BF not measured, but did not visibly change
    Strength
    Dips+10 lbs
    CG+10 lbs
    HS Shoulder Press+25 lbs
    DB Rows+15 lbs

    Ancillary lifts were also up in reps

    Now, the qualitative (1-10 scale, 10 being very high):

    Shutdown
    2/10: the level of shutdown on this is by far the lowest of any DS/AAS I have used. Barely any testicular atrophy with the only noticeable effect was more "watery" semen.
    Acne/Skin
    3/10: there was a mild increase in facial/shoulder acne, but nothing substantial. The main thing I did notice was more oil on more forehead later in the day, but not to the point where I looked as though I had just been
    buffed.
    Libido
    5/10: there was very little effect on libido or erections while using this.
    Aggression
    4/10: there was some increase in this, but it was not consistent nor extreme. 1T and The One really, really increased my aggression, but Cyno only did on occasion and it was for a much shorter duration. When I did notice an increase, it was more of an "in the zone" feeling than an overall wanting to hurt people feeling.
    Pumps/M-M Connection
    8/10: this was one of the high points of this product. I had amazing, almost cramp-like pumps while using this particularly on extension exercises (e.g. pressdowns, dips). Even muscles that I don't always feel (e.g. rear delts) were much "active" while training.
    Recovery (Intra-set and Overall)
    Intra-set-9/10: I was able to train at a much faster clip and to add reps especially towards the end when I do higher-rep exercises. Even drop-sets were not overly killer and taxing.
    Overall-9/10: this is the high point of Cyno. I added volume and drop-sets to almost every session and I still would only have DOMS for about 36 hours. As noted earlier in the log, this was very noticeable while grappling as my forearms didn't burn-out even while working very grip-dependent chokes. I think that implementing a routine around rest-pause would be awesome while using this


    Overall
    7/10: this really reminded me of MOHN (pre-'05 ban), but it was much more anabolic. I personally like more androgenic effects in my AAS, but this would be an ideal complementary piece for recomping. In fact, the next time that I use this will be for a recomp in the Spring.
    Great review man - very informative in all aspects! Great work and congrats on the progress

    Absolutely. I'm not a bulk/cut person, so this product works for me. I much prefer a slower pace because the progress is easier to maintain.

    I'd really like to use this in conjunction with a strong androgen for pre-WO purposes.

    Great review Rodja, you were one of those lucky enough to get your hands on some while it lasted. After reading about it I would have loved to get my hands on some.
