    Volcom's Androlean & Androhard Log


    Iím very excited to log these products, Iíve been excited about the Androseries since I first heard about them weeks before Christmas. This will also be my very first run of a real PH/PS type of supp.

    First off, I have taken pictures of myself today, but I won't post them right, right now. The reason is Iím in the middle of a supplement company cutting contest, but that contest will end before the end of my Androseries run, therefore, I don't want to show my cards yet. It's a transformation contest and I don't want to deflate the shock & awe aspect of my transformation by posting mid-way pics.

    What I'll do is I will post pictures in this log mid-way through this log, both at the opening page of the log and in the most current post. I'll post all of todayís front, rear, side pics I took today and dated 03/11/11 and then I'll post my final pictures at the end of this log or some mid-way pics from when the supp company cut contest ends in April. I don't mind posting progression pics in this log after my contest ends, I just donít want to reveal anything prior to the end of the contest. Iím hoping my final pictures after this cycle will be noticeably improved.

    A little about me.
    I dable in both bodybuilding and Olympic lifting, so Iíll be curious as to how my strength and my power holds up as I get into the trenches of my cut while on Androlean and Androhard. Iíve lost almost no muscle or at least no strength from my cut from 220 to 205, but thatís because there was a hearty amount of adipose to lose. I think Iím nearing the point of my cut where muscle mass may be in jeopardy once I get sub 200lbs. Weíll see.

    A little more about me....

    100lbs Db's x 22 reps



    450lbs Hammer Incline Press x 5 reps



    185lbs Olympic Snatch (poor quality vid)


    Cycle Plan for 6 weeks, 8 if I'm inclined.
    Androlean 6 caps daily
    Androhard 6 caps daily
    Lean Xtreme 3 caps daily (I have to have my cort control)


    PCT for 4 weeks
    Nolva 20/20/10/10 (perhaps not ďnecessaryĒ but Iím playing it safe)
    DAA 15 days on.
    Formadrol Xtreme 4 caps daily
    Phyto-Test 4 caps daily
    PRIME 4 caps daily

    Then Iíll be off to Taiwan for 2 weeks to visit the family, where Iíll be bringing 2 bottles of SlinSane because our big family eats together between going eating and the carbs are a plenty.

    Thereís an Addidas Olympic Gym around the corner from where weíd be staying, but lifting with a 16hour time difference didnít work out last summer and I donít expect it will this summer either.

    I didn't take the time to refeed after going the last 10 days without carbs, so I turned out a bit flat. I apologize I didn't maximize my final shots, but I will post some pics I took the last time I had a refeed about two weeks ago at the very end.

















    REFEED PICS FROM TWO WEEKS BACK

    Cardio: Stairclimber 30 mins.

    There are a few things worse then performing cardio on a Friday night for me. Anytime during the week isn't bad, because its the thick of the work week and its time to grind, but Friday nights, lifting is easy and preferred, cause there's no one there, but cardio sucks.

    Day 1 of Androseries, nothing of note yet, short of the added excitement of being on something, but I wouldn't expect anything palpable following the first dose of anything.

    Thanks to everyone for popping in.

    No. My mom called me and told me she was up all night watching the news and calling our family in Taiwan to stay away from high buildings (and you know Asia only has room to build upward, so everything is a high building; Taipei 101, the world's second tallest structure is in Taiwan), because the Asian news was predicting that the earthquake/tsunami was going to hit Taiwan, but it didn't, thank God. Thanks for axing though.

    Sweet I'm in, nice P snatch, be patient with the technique and finish your pull at the top and sit lower and you could easily snatch 100 kilos.

    hopefully the worst is over, kinda troubling about those nuke reactors in japan though.

    I know. I end way too high, but that's primarily due to the fact I workout 99% of the time at L.A. Fitness, ergo, no Olympic weights, therefore, I can't really risk anything that I might drop. Sitting hams to calves on the Snatch takes time and repetition to build the kind of core strength I'd need to do that, but in those repetitions has to be an allowance of plenty of drops and fails to stand, which is a luxury I don't have.

    I work at a private S&C facility, but I only access their facility on Sundays when we're closed to attempt PR's on my O-Lifts. I spend 99% of the time at L.A. Fitness because bodybuilding is my priority. If I were training solely for sports, then I'd more then likely spend most of my time at the S&C facility. I just don't like working out where I work as a general feeling, but I hear you. I can sit under 155 hams to calves, but whenever you drop hams to calves on the snatch, there's not a 100% chance the stand will be successful and again, L.A. Fitness, no dropping weights from an overhead position, even sitting at hams to calves.

    I'm very interested in the Androseries too! The pills have the look, size and feel of fish oil pills, but smell like citrus, they actually smell pretty good; like grapefruit for obvious reasons.

    I know... and the last thing their economy needed was a devastating natural disaster. I know Tokyo has a specialized underground, literal whole-city shock absorbers for occasions just as these, but not much you can do against a massive tsunami.

    Ya I can understand that, even if you sit a few more inches you could get under 100 imo. Try doing some overhead squats and get used to range, will help with you core strength as well. I miss going heavy on oly lifts my best P snatch was 175 kilos...

    Just try refraining from making a mess in your pants from laughter when you see my O-lift numbers. You're in a freaky, elite league compared to me in this department. Your numbers are elite, elite. I got a little shrinkage from your PM when you shared your previous Cleans numbers

    It's been great. Gained a bit of weight around the Holiday's and post-wedding feasts that I worked off in January. I switched to a full Paleo diet recently while I mend my hand from yet another break. Trying to avoid the rebound weight gain through that and still doing some sprint and Prowler sessions.

    Good to hear. My initial post marriage weight gain lasted until about 54 days ago, but wanting to be lean or just wanting to be size'y is a matter of season and mind state. I'd been wanting to cut for a year now, but there was no drive or desire to do so, therefore, I just got hulky. However, I'm glad to be cutting again, but I've still got a good ways to go.

    There are definitely pictures. I took them in two different lighting. One of them makes me look like an off-season Lee Priest and the other makes me look like some impressive beast. The latter has all types of shades and shadows that over-exaggerate whatever is there, so I'll have to reluctantly go with the off-season Lee Priest pics for integrity. I also have to admit, I was a bit underwhelmed by the way my progress appears in a 2D picture, because I feel pretty lean in real life, but the pictures were a bit disappointing for me.

    I won't forget the dates of when these pictures were taken either. I'm a big fan of the band 311 and today is 311 day (3/11/2011).

    Oh for sure. I don't train my O-lifts for optimal power, but I do them for the various other benefits. I keep the rep ranges on Snatches and Cleans around 5 reps if I can, which isn't optimal for optimal power (redundant). Generally speaking, I open up my delts day or a traps emphasized day with them. Starting off on the snatches really recruits the shoulder stabilizers, recruits a healthy amount of motor units in my traps and delts and my military presses actual improve if I perform military's following O-lifts, then not.

    Furthermore, keeping the rep ranges high is very metabolic, especially since I rest (briefly) like a bodybuilder in between sets, rather then a power lifter with ample rest. None of these things equates to optimal power, but I use them to assist in my bodybuilding efforts. If I were using the O-lifts for sports or some kind of competitive nature, then I'd of course switch the focus to singles and triples.

    I'm sure you'll recognize these babies!!

    I really don't know why I went with bowling shoes red. My previous O-shoes were [plain white and black, but I guess I was feeling boisterous the night I clicked "purchase" on these.
