I will definitely will get bloods at the end of the cycle. I've seen somelogs have their blood pressure recorded. Normally I'm about 105/60, and today my reading is 139/78. Is this anything to be concerned about?
no, but if it goes higher, then yes, that is the pre hypertension range. make sure you are drinking plenty of water, getting your cardio in, and I would say if you smoke, to stop, and limit your caffiene to little to none.
nice gains so far, makes me dream back to my first cycle of 4-andro-diol.

Week #4 Summary: 6/15/11
Weight: Increased 1lb to 219lbs.
Water Retention: Medium
Hair Loss: None
Comments: Today I finished my 1st bottle of Andromass (day 28) and I'm up about 13lbs. This week I only gained 1lb though I do not feel like I'm retaining as much water, so I assume this is translating to more muscle. The bad gas I had every night for the last few weeks has disappeared and my libido is finally back in full force! Every day I continue to have a good pump especially in my shoulders/back, where I think I'm seeing the most results so far. Strength continues to increase marginally and I'm lifting heavier weights each week as I keep challenging myself. I just tied my max bench press on Monday at 315lbs and I'm attempting to break that record tomorrow at 325 or higher. I've also noticed significantly reduced recovery time this week with absolutely no soreness after the most brutal workouts. I literally have to force myself to take a rest day. My blood pressure is up a bit which I'm going to monitor, and aggression is also increased where I have a lower tolerance for stress though it is manageable. I haven't really noticed any increased hair loss and testes are still normal size with no atrophy. I'm starting my 2nd bottle tomorrow and will probably run for the full 8-week cycle. I wonder how beneficial the next 4 weeks will be and if I'll continue to gain muscle and fierceness in the gym...
Have you been increasing your calories each week? One of the common things that happens during a cycle is that people forget to add calories to fuel their newly acquired mass. With the 13 lbs that you have added (which is amazing, BTW), you'll need at least 200 additional kcals per day just to maintain that.
I think I've been increasing my cals since I've been eating like a beast! I'll see if I can add-on another meal during the day. One challenge I've always had is eating after I workout, as I'm usually amped for a few hours and have absolutely no appetite. I usually just force down a shake to get the required nutrients during that critical post-workout window.
Awesome log so far, great weekly updates
Nice Thread Title too

I'm in, good luck w/ that second bottle.
On my workout days, I usually drink a 1000 cal Peanut Butter Moo'd w/whey & soy protein to help fill in the gaps, but I'm going to eliminate that and replace with actual food. Chocolate milk is a great idea though!
lToday was an epic day in the gym! I went in with a mission to go commando on the bench press, and I finally broke about my old max of 315, and set a new max of 325! I attempted 335 but was too damn fatigued and need my spotter to assist. So let's see...about a month ago I was *barely* benching 285 once, and now I've increased that by 40lbs. I am completely 100% that Andromass kicks some serious ass. I'm a believer. I also formerly would do dumbbell flies with 80 lbs max, and today I killed it with the 100lb dumbbells. Here's today's workout:
Elliptical: 10 min warm-up.
Bench Press: 135x10, 185x5, 225x5, 275x5, 315x1, 325x1, 275x6
Bench dumbbell flies: 40x10, 60x10, 80x10, 100x8
Incline barbell press: 135x10, 205x8, 225x5, 185x5
Tricep overhead extension: 90x10, 150x10, 180x10, 210x10.
Tricep rope pull down: 90x10, 180x10, 210x10, 210x10
Iso lateral row (each arm): 90x10, 180x8, 225x5, 225x5
Hack Squat: 180x10, 360x8, 540x8, 720x5, 360x8
Hip adductor machine: 80x15, 160x15, 200x10, 200x10.

Calf raise machine (each foot): 100x10, 180x10, 250x10, 300x8, 300x8.
Seated calf-raise: 90x10, 180x10, 270x8, 315x5, 315x4, 225x10.
Congrats on the big PR. Adding 10 lbs in any given session is a big accomplishment.
Damn man 40 pound on bench in a month is really impressive...reminds me of my OG Mass Tabs cycle lol. Keep killin it and like previously mentioned, keep increasing those cals!!!
Cutting all summer, cycle in September
Some pretty crazy results indeed!
Glad to hear it is treating you well. Congrats on the PR!
