This is a much higher dose of a 50% fenuside product and it took about the same. I would be tempted to increase it as it effects levels off to see if bumping the dose up correlates.

    I don't like experimenting on doses when I am logging for someone unless told. I was wondering about going down to 1 cap TID or 5 caps. One would confirm that I would be happy to run it at a lower dose without seriously negating the effects and the other would imply you could taper up during the run (if it feels more potent). Your call Athletix.

    I have never used LCLT before so don't have any experience of what to expect. When I realised I was chosen to log them I didn't read any reviews to as to try and limit influence on expectations and placebo effect.
    ok tks

    If you feel a higher dose seems to be taking the effects away I'd go down to 2-3 caps, but it's up to you.

    i am using the opposite approach....upping the dose at the beginning to hopefully get it saturated in body and feel effects sooner. then reduce dose and hopefully not see much drop off in effect. had been doing 3 caps today i went with 4, started feeling increased libido today-gonna stay at 4 caps 1 more day then drop to 2 caps daily.
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

    I am aware of some of the other uses of fenugreek and am not worried. If I do start lactating randomly, start bra shopping for my puffy nipples or start crying at Titanic I will be sure to let you know.

    Just wanted clarification before I start tampering with the doses on a sponsored log. I will go down to one capsule TID starting today.

    Really curious to see how this goes, I like testing other approaches and this didn't come into my head at all. I find that although libido can stay high, the random erections etc on any testosterone boosters I have tried are much more prominent in the first two weeks, even if I keep the dose the same. I have felt this with DTHC, AX + Triazole, Testofen, Testo Libre and Blue Up. I have probably tried others but can't remember them off hand. The more of these I try the more convinced I am that taking them in short bursts or cycling different products on a 1 or 2 week basis would seem a more sensible option for me.

  10. Ok, the weather this morning is a bit cloudier than usual so instead of sunbathing at 8:30 in the morning I decided to stay inside, mark a couple of assignments, post up on here and eat my breakfast.

    Breakfast this morning- 5 egg omelette with lemon pepper chicken and walnuts. Easy recipe, straight forward to cook and very tasty.

    Training wise, here are the routines I have been doing while on holiday;

    Chest and Back:
    A1) Bi-Acromial Grip Bench Press 4 x 6-8 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    A2) 3/4 Supinated Grip Chin Ups 4 x 6-8 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B1) 30 Degree Incline Neutral Grip Dumbbell Bench Press 4 x 6-8 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B2) T-Bar Row w/ Supinated Grip 4 x 6-8 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    C1) Dips 3 x 10-12 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 10 seconds
    C2) Bent Over Bilateral Dumbbell Side Raises 3 x 10-12 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 30 seconds

    Legs:
    A1) Heel Elevated Barbell Hack Squat 4 x 6-8 Tempo: 3-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    A2) Seated Calf Raises 4 x 12-15 Tempo: 2-1-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B1) Cyclist Squats 4 x 6-8 Tempo: 3-1-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B2) Prone Leg Curl 4 x 4-6 Tempo: 4-0-1-0 Rest: 60 seconds
    C1) 45 Degree Leg Press Calf Raises 5 x 12-15 Tempo: 2-1-1-0 Rest: 30 seconds

    Arms and Shoulders (at the villa):
    A1) Resistance Band Standing Reverse Curls 4 x 15~
    A2) Triangle Push Ups 4 x AMRAP
    A3) Standing Cross Over Resistance Band Lateral Raises 4 x 12~
    B1) Resistance Band Standing Curls 4 x 15~
    B2) Resistance Band Overhead Extensions 4 x 12~
    B3) Resistance Band Upright Rows 4 x 15~

    On the resistance band workout all numbers are approximations as finding a combination of bands to suit the resistance makes it hard to be specific, especially as small changes in stance width can make the exercise easier or more difficult.

    The workout was intended to start off as an intensification phase but when I got to the gym it became obvious it wouldn't happen. Dumbbells go up to 100lbs which isn't enough for my chest work if I was using low reps. The olympic bench is not suitable for heavy pressing and there is no chin up belt.

    What I have is more of a functional hypertrophy workout. The rest periods could be shorter but the heat makes it extremely hard for me to train without passing out. The gym staff don't just wipe down the equipment after me, they wipe the floor as well.

    Notes on Titanium: Libido is still high, sex is frequent and my urge to go again is quicker than it was previously. Random erection frequency has subsided (this tends to happen to me on all good testosterone boosters, none of them keep this up for more than two weeks). I am dropping the dose to 1 capsule TID to match my Erase dose. This is because I didn't feel the higher dose made a noticeable enough difference to when I ran testofen at a lower dose. This suits me better as I would prefer to run it at 2-3 per day and get similar results for less cost.

    Several years ago I took Fenugreek (NOW brand) as part of a stack. I had previously used everything else in the stack except fenugreek without issue. About three weeks into the cycle my existing gyno, in the form of a knot beneath my right areola began to hurt. I discontinued the fenugreek but continued with the rest of the stack and the problem subsided. I have personally avoided fenugreek ever since. However, the type of extract may have been an issue, I’m not sure.

    Thank you both for the compliments.

    I did a second workout today at home, high rep chest and back work with resistance bands after my main chest and back workout earlier on.

    Dinner is in the oven, garlic and basil chicken legs with potatoes.

    Titanium notes: I forgot to mention that a noticeable increase in semen volume has been noted. I try and keep this as objective and professional as possible. My girlfriend has made comments on this for the last week or so. I had not told her anything about this as a possible effect until she asked.

    This is interesting. I have heard about lactation issues when other brands released fenugreek products but there was debate over the extracts exerting different effects.

    I have used it before and have never had issues. Part of the reason I like it is that is has a human study behind it and tends to be sold as a "does what it says on the tin" product rather than something that is ridiculously overhyped. I prefer a reliable testosterone boost that is more modest than all of the new products coming on the market. I think fenuside has stuck around for a reason. We will see where bulbine etc are in two years.

    This is a pretty common thing, if you have pre existing gyno it can get aggravated by a lot of different herbal test boosters.

  17. Ok, my third training session of each workout so I have done my usual 30% deload. The intensity has been hard to keep up there in such a small gym. I am only repping 110kg on bench press but the stands wobble everytime I rack it, it was not designed for heavy duty use, hence this programme being more of a functional hypertrophy phase than the neural strength phased I had planned. 3/4 supinated grip chin ups I completed 4 x 6 with with 15kg extra which was too light for me. I was hoping to be doing triples with 90lbs-100lbs this workout. It will have to wait until next week when I get home, I will change my routine sooner than usual so I can take advantage of the heavier equipment.

    Eating is going well here although it is very repetitive as meat in the supermarket does not look like it does in England, lots of kebabs, balls, burgers that look like hybrid meat. Pork meat here that is a rich red colour like beef, it is hard to trust it so I am sticking with the trusty sources; plain salmon, mackerel, chicken breasts, chicken legs, eggs and sliced salmon and trout.

    I am looking leaner, some water weight loss from the lower carb lifestyle which suits me a lot better than higher carb diets, I have to carb cycle just to consume anything without feeling bloated and tired afterwards. Last night was homemade thai green chicken curry (coconut milk, not cream) with rice noodles. It left me a little bit bloated last night but looking ok this morning.

    Today's training will be arms and shoulders with resistance bands. This is so I can do it at home in the sun rather than going to the gym 25 minutes away 3 out of 4 days. It was a compromise for my girlfriend despite her being very supportive, I like to try and keep her happy as well.

    I am on 1 capsule TID of Titanium and have around half a bottle left.

    Thank you guys. It was hard to deload on a resistance band workout but managed it just about with slight changes in stance. I recorded a couple of the very basic exercises for my YouTube channel, will get them uploaded soon.

    I have cleared my PM box. Send it again and I will answer it there out of respect for Athletix.

    ---

    I am at the airport at the moment. My arms and shoulders workout was my last session. I took two days off with the intention of hitting the gym fresh tomorrow when I can finally commence my intensification phase. I may be jet lagged but nobody gets anywhere in this game by taking the easy road.

    Food so far today;
    - Brown rice protein shake with rice milk, cocoa and cinnamon.
    - Garlic and ginger chicken breast omelette (one breast, five whole eggs, no milk) and walnuts.
    - Lime and black pepper chicken omelette (one breast, five whole eggs, no milk) and walnuts.
    - Mackerel fillet with grated carrot, avocado and pumpkin seed salad.

    Food for plane: Desiccated liver tablets, cashews, dates and dried berries. The person picking me up is bringing me some gluten free sausages (high meat content with rice flour) for when I am off the plane.

    See you all on the other side! I will update tomorrow.

  22. no matter how good trips are-there is no place like home!!!!
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  23. Ok, intensification phase started today. It is long overdue!

    Chest and back:
    A1) 45 Degree Incline Bi-Acromial Grip Bench Press 6 x 3 Tempo: 5-0-X-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    A2) Wide Grip Pull Ups 6 x 3 Tempo: 5-0-X-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B1) 15 Degree Decline Neutral Grip Dumbbell Press 4 x 4-6 Tempo: 4-0-X-0 Rest: 75 seconds
    B2) Narrow Parallel Grip Sternum Chin Ups 4 x 4-6 Tempo: 4-0-1-0 Rest: 75 seconds

    It was nice lifting some heavier weights again. I have extended the tempo to keep the TUT slightly higher. I was a little bit too conservative with the weights and expected a faster drop off. As a starting point I completed all reps for A1 with 100kg and all reps except one on A2 with an additional weight of 30kg. Weight for B1 was 42.5kg and too easy, B2 I stuck with bodyweight as sternum chin ups are so much more demanding. There was a much faster drop off on B2 than any other exercise.

  24. Today was legs:

    A1) Front Squat 6 x 3-5 Tempo: 4-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    A2) Romanian Deadlift 6 x 3-5 Tempo: 5-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B1) Standing Barbell Calf Raises from Floor 4 x 10-15 Tempo: 1-0-1-0 Rest: 10 seconds
    B2) Seated Narrow Stance Calf Raises 4 x 8-10 Tempo: 2-0-2-0 Rest: 60 seconds

    Front squats and romanian deadlifts as a superset is an act of masochism. As I am recovering from knee issues the front squats are a very light weight so it makes the recovery easier to handle.

    Titanium notes: The libido boost that was present at the beginning has levelled off. I have dropped to one capsule TID for the last few days and I feel about the same as when I started. I am going to increase again to one capsule QID to see if it comes back up. It is normal for T boosters to have a noticeable effect for the first two weeks and level off.

  25. Great stuff, keep up the good work!

    I love the weight routines, do you add in any cardio during the week as well?
    Core Nutritionals Representative

  26. I do zero cardio in terms of running, swimming etc. If I want to lose fat or improve conditioning I do it with weight training routines and shorten the rest intervals. On my AnaBeta log I was doing giant sets with no rest so the combined TUT per body part was around four minutes.

    If I have photoshoots coming up I sometimes add in a little bit of cardio on top but most of the time I simply manipulate diet and weight training to lose a couple of extra percentage points of body fat. I tend to maintain my BF% seen in the first photo year round minus small fluctuations.

    That is great, I love doing cardio just for the endurance aspect, but I agree to get leaner and drop bodyfat weights plus strict diet will do the trick, I find people try to over do it with tons of cardio to drop bodyfat %.
    Core Nutritionals Representative

  28. I agree completely. For me, if I can get to 8% bf for a photoshoot without cardio then I would happily do that. It is so often that people add it in a huge quantity or cardio to get lean and end up catabolising muscle tissue.

    When I drop fat, I don't lose strength. I like to keep it that way.

    Ok, today is supposed to be a day off but I will be going and doing arms anyway. I usually train three times over a five day period and take a day off on the third and fifth day. On my last mesocycle I didn't see a noticeably slower increase in strength when I trained three days on, one day off and I didn't suffer from lethargy or any other signs of adrenal fatigue.

    My biceps are sore from chest and back, my biceps are very rarely ever sore so this is nice. My lats are sore from pull ups which is also very rare. My traps are sore from romanian deadlifts as are my hamstrings. It is nice to start lifting heavy again after a couple of months of hypertrophy based workouts.

  29. Yesterday was my arm day, here was my training routine:

    A1) 80 Degree Incline Seated Offset Grip Dumbbell Curls 6 x 3 Tempo: 5-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    A2) 15 Degree Decline Narrow Grip EZ Bar Extensions to Forehead 6 x 3 Tempo: 5-0-1-0 Rest: 90 seconds
    B1) Standing Medium Grip EZ Bar Curls 4 x 4-6 Tempo: 4-0-1-0 Rest: 75 seconds
    B2) Lying Flat Medium Grip EZ Bar Extensions to Forehead 4 x 4-6 Tempo: 4-0-1-0 Rest: 75 seconds

    A very simple workout designed for me to increase the intensity I am working at for the purpose of increasing neural strength. It has been three mesocycles since I have worked in lower rep ranges as I had high volume for AnaBeta and then went on a body composition programme prior to my holiday.

    The soreness I am experiencing at the moment is very rare for me, it seems to have come as a pleasant shock to the body.

    My hamstrings mean I can't stand up out of bed, I have to turn around to put my feet on the floor and then do a push up. My lats, rhomboids, traps, posterior deltoids and biceps have all been very sore as well. Very little soreness in my quads, triceps, calves and pecs despite me taking high doses of BCAAs during my workout (this usually has a dramatic mitigation effect on my level of DOMS).

    I have run out of my brown rice protein and due to distributors being out of stock in England I am struggling to order more. I can't handle dairy for extended periods of time including WPI so at the moment I am using RecoverPro in the morning and intra-workout and Body Mortar post workout.

    Titanium notes: I am still noticing higher than normal libido effects even though they are not as pronounced as they were within the first two weeks. I went down to one capsule TID for a few days and wasn't sure if I could tell any difference so I increased it the last two days to five per day to see if it results in any boost of libido from the slightly higher dosage. It seems to have worked.

  30. Chest and back training today. I still had some DOMs present in my biceps which made my pulls ups harder than usual.

    - Incline Bi-Acromial Grip Bench Press 105kg 6 x 3, all 18 reps completed.
    - Wide Grip Pulls Ups + 35kg 6 x 3, only 12 reps completed. I completed 17 reps with +30kg last workout so this was a bigger drop off than I expected. I contribute this to lingering muscle soreness.
    - Decline Neutral Grip DB Press. Started with 45kgs, it was too easy to went up to 50kg dumbbells for the last two sets.
    - Narrow Parallel Grip Sternum Pull Ups +5kg. I should have done these first as they are more neurologically demanding. This exercise is probably the main reason my back was so sore after my last workout.

    Titanium is finished, I have a couple of days left on Erase.

    I will post up my final review tomorrow.
