Glycobol solo, it begins now
Ok I will be running glycobol solo for 1 month, this is after a dermacrine 1 month cycle, pct is finished and now time to recomp and hopefully lose some body fat and continue to gain strength.
Currently been using the glycobol for 1 week, here are my results so far.
Appearance: I look leaner and fuller, especially post workout I'm looking ripped and big, waste line is more trim, pants are more loose fitting in the waste, but tighter in the thighs. Everything is looking more defined but not sacrificing size, very nice.
Appetite: Not sure but I am more hungry on this then before, possibly from the increased cardio I've been doing as well, not sure though, been eating around 4200 clean calories a day at protein 40% carbs 30% and fat 30% of calories.
Energy: When taken about an hour preworkout then with a protein shake and roughly 50g complex carbs I find my pumps are better, more sustained energy, even through a tough 5x5 circuit and treadmil intervals.
Strength: Strength is on the rise, but I'm busting my ass and getting plenty of rest as well.
Endurance: Cardio endurance is up as well as musclular endurance, hit some nice rep pr's lately.
Side effects: Only side effects so far has been the first few days ramping up from 1 pill twice a day which I did for 2 days and then 2 pills twice a day was some diarrhea but that has since subsided after day 4, nothing terrible just about 45 minutes after my glycobol I had some gi upset, but nothing I couldn't handle.
Overall I am happy so far, really looking forward to seeing what it can do by the end of the month, I will update more frequently now as I feel it has started to kick in so to speak. I will also post before and after pics once the month is over.

Workout went as follows
Speed pushups 10x5
Plyo box pushups 3xfail
Bench dips 4xfail
Close grip incline pushup 3x15
Blackburns 2x15 seconds
Lateral raises 3x20
Front raises 3x20
Rear delt raise 3x20
Ground core circuit 2x
Lots of energy today, no gi issues anymore. Muscles feeling full, pumped, and hard. Abs looking leaner by the day. Have increased my cardio slightly, going to cut until the end of the bottle of glycobol and then go back into a lean bulk/strength phase of training. Diet has been on point, starting weight was 214, currently 211, empty stomach, very dry weight. Will try to get down to 209/208 by the end of the next 3 weeks and then bulking time, but hopefully able to keep my abs I have been working hard for.

Ok back and biceps went well, been doing some cardio and plyos the last few days, this past week was a deload as far as the weights go, starting defrancos built like a badass routine tomorrow. I feel good, looking leaner feeling pumped but not swollen pumped like some products. Doesn't really feel like much of anything, just slow and steady results. I feel like when taken preworkout that I feel a steady flow of energy throughout the workout, never feel like the tank is empty towards the end. Mirror wise I am liking the results, will get a weight tomorrow and probably add 200-300 calories, mainly carbs around my glycobol dosing times. And increase the cardio slightly and see if I can continue to burn fat and gain some muscles.

Today was my upper body day 1, went well. I work 12 hour night shift 7pm-7am and decided to train after work, took my glycobol at about 5:30am, ate at 6am, training commenced at 8am. Had solid energy throughout, looked very pumped, especially chest and shoulders are really poping, but didn't feel the crazy pump that is usually associated with that kind of look, also I've notice not as much muscle soreness, quicker recovery perhaps? Tonight is an off day, some stretching will be done, then legs tomorrow.

Leg day went great, lots of energy and not too bad of doms 2 days after, just a little, today was my second upper body day, lots of energy again, pumps were great in my bi's and tri's. Was able to get 24 dead hang chin ups, new pr, muscles feeling and staying pumped for hours. Abs are still looking lean even though I upped the calories.

Ok today was upper body day 1, did this workout after working all night for 12 hours, dosed glycobol as usual about 1 hour preworkout. Increased reps on both my sets of slight incline DB press by 2 each set, I do 2 sets to failure after my heavy benching. Increased cable rows by 2 weight stack plates, and decreased my rest period on my BB complex from 2 minutes to 90 seconds and had more energy than last week. BB complex is Dead lift, bent over rows, hang clean, push press, squat all for 10 reps each, I am using 95 lbs total bar weight. Reps are done as fast as possible with good form of course, last week had 2 sets with 2 minutes rest, this week had 3 total sets and used 90 seconds rest and felt much better than last week, loving the energy I have at the end of the workout. Lower body tomorrow, yeah buddy.

Good for you for working out after a long shift like that. I was on split shifts (first and third) for three months and now I'm on straight graveyard. The graveyard shift is killing me! Glad to hear that you've found a secret weapon in Glycobol!

Lower body workout went great, hit 380x3 on squats deep and with a 5 second negative real easy, could have got 5 or 6 probably. Rest of workout was on point, got hit on after I wiped my face with my shirt, some random girl told me nice abs, first time that has happened. Overall nothing new to report, great workout and tons of energy and looking lean, although my appetite has increased this past week, but I'm still leaning out so hell yeah.

Upper body day 2 went great, got 26 pullups my first set, new pr. Got my 100 pushups in 1:52, new pr as well. Pump was great in the bis and tris as well, really leaning out, can't wait to post up some pics, this is the leanest I have been, even better than during college after doubles. Same things to report increased recovery, muscle fullness and pump, energy. Appetite is still on the rise as well.

Cool. Glycobol has a lot of different possible uses, recomping is one of its best

Nothing new to report, solid pump and energy for this upper body workout. Got 330x2 with pause on bench, could have got more but my spotter was talking to some girl, damn random spotters. Incline got 20/15 reps on both sets of incline db press with 70's. Endurance was great on my bb complex, lungs were giving out before my muscles, first time that has happened in a long time. Also on my db rows 4x10 with 100's, gym only goes that heavy , probably could have done about 20, back felt really strong today.

Leg day went well, energy was up after working 12 hours. Felling great and had a nice fullness after the workout. Appetite is still up as well. Legs a little sore but did some solid work so that's to be expected.

Nice log man. I took glycobol for a couple months this summer and went from a 33 pant size to 30 while still gaining a nice amount of muscle. I took pics of myself before and after and it made me feel great comparing at the end of each month. keep up the good work. wish I could still take it now :/

I'm assuming its not a can't but a don't have or don't have money possibly? I wouldn't see any reason why someone couldn't take it unless you had an allergy but then you wouldn't have been able to of used it all summer anyways. Anyways, upper body day 2 went great. Got 26 pullups my first set. Did my 100 pushups in 1:38, getting 70 before failure, week was 1:56 and 62 before failure. Biceps were very pumped after all the pullups and a few db curl rack runs. Looking very very lean, gf told me to eat more because she felt fat next to me. Felt great today, still very pumped and full, time to go show it off at the beach.

Alright today was heavy bench day, got 350x2, would have got 3 but the guy spotting me tried to pull the bar up while I was on my negative for the 3rd rep, so I only got 2, what an idiot. Anyways, had a great pump in my bi's and tri's today. Abs are looking more lean as well, really showing the lines. Appetite is huge, very huge, can't get myself satisfied huge, which is going to help since the cardio is being upped a little, well I am almost done with my bottle, so sad. Will give a final review in a few days as well as some pics, wish I could stay on but will definitely use again in the future.

Ok after a month of glycobol I have to say I enjoyed the run greatly. I've used anabolic pump before and think glycobol worked better in terms of recomp and keeping my gains after a cycle of dermacrine. Was on a bulk on the dermacrine and then went on a lean cut/strength phase after my pct and the glycobol was key in allowing me to eat plenty of good calories to keep my muscle but allowing me to get some nice recomp effects as well. Cardio and weights were comparable to my bulk cycle, just I dropped my calories by about 300 from my on cycle total. Pumps were great, not painful but when I needed a full muscle pump I got it. Endurance was up as well as strength, I think taking preworkout really helps give one sustained energry throughout a long workout. Joints had no ill effects, only negative was initially had some gi upset, but that subsided after only a few days. Even though I upped my calories I still got leaner. Strength went up on my core lifts. Appetite was slowly on the rise as well. I didn't stack this with anything, I don't think anything would make it better, but the glycobol would be a great addition to any stack, probably great in a bulk to give some wiggle room with sloppy calories. Overall I give it an 8.5/10, I will use this product again and would recommend it to anyone.
Ok I'm trying to resize my pics, they are impressive I look much more ripped in the afters.
Any questions feel free to ask if I missed any topics in the final review.
