    Aye, that's what I usually go by as well (the mirror), hence why I was confused.

    Chest and Arms Hypertrophy Day

    Strength/Endurance Test Exercise: Flat dumbbell presses
    60x8, 70x8, 80x8, 90x8 => was easier this week, will go up to 95s next week

    Pressing Power Exercise speed work: Flat bench press (pause reps)
    bar x15, 140x5, 190x3x6

    Hypertrophy pressing movement: Incline dumbbell presses
    70x8, 70x8, 70x8 => 30s rest in between sets, was also easier from last week

    Hypertrophy fly movement: Incline cable flyes
    40x15, 50x15, 50x15

    Hypertrophy pressing movement: Hammer strength chest press
    110x15, 110x15, 110x15 => little rest in between

    Hypertrophy curling exercise: Ez-bar preacher curls
    70x8x3

    Hypertrophy curling exercise: Dumbbell concentration curls
    30x13, 30x13, 25x13

    Hypertrophy curling exercise: Spider curls bracing upper body against an incline bench
    50x15, 50x15

    Hypertrophy extension exercise: Seated tricep extension withEz-bar
    70x8, 70x8, 75x8 => will also go up next week

    Hypertrophy extension exercise: Cable pressdowns with rope attachment
    70x15, 70x15, 80x15 => slight increase

    Hypertrophy extension exercise: Cable kickbacks
    15x15, 15x15, 10x15, 10x15, 10x15


    So, nothing huge today. I noted increases in the numbers from last week, and what I'll be doing next week. All good news , but nothing like 'holy s*^t this stuff is crazyyyyyyyy', which I assume (when it comes) will be more subtle than that.


    Heavy legs tomorrow. Was thinking I might change up my rep range and do 5 reps instead of 3 with my working sets for squats. We'll see . . . I'll be up near albany moving into my temporary housing preparing to start my new job, so at least I'll have my old workout partner there for some spotting if necessary.

    btw, arms looked freakin huge today.


    AND . . . olive garden was such a f*%king let down. Portions were even smaller than I remember, they skimped on sauce HARD (could tell how watered down it was), only put about .5oz of chicken in my first bowl (2nd and 3rd were a lot more since I told the waitress that the amount of chicken was bull****)

    ****, if I knew they were going to screw me with the sauce I wouldve taken some slin sane before the meal (since the fats wouldve been low). whatever

    oh olive garden. we had a family friend who was from Italy and they despised Olive Garden. They had no clue how it was related to Italian cooking other than the fact that there was noodles and sauce. she hate it with an undying passion lol.

    not so much. keep in mind a few weeks before I started my %bf was extremely low, so even now I feel fat compared to then lol.

    really the only place I look at leanness is my abdominal area, which has not changed since I started. places like my arms and legs are always really lean so trying to gauge it from them is difficult.

    i am in the opposite position-i went thru a 2 week lay off from workouts before starting endosurge. between the endosurge and combustion i am impressed with how fast things are reurning to where they were a month ago.

    Thumbs up


    Whew, worked out at the Bally's up in Albany . . . gym was legit. Mad juicers though, haha.

    Lower Body Power Day
    • Pressing Power Movement: Squats
      bar x15, bar x10, 135x8, 225x5, 275x3, 305x3, 315x3 drop 225x8 drop 135x15 => wanted to feel out the weights there. Squat rack is nice and I felt really strong today
    • Assistance pulling movement: Deadlifts
      135x5, 225x5, 315x3, 405x2 => Felt meh, lower back was kind of tired from squats and I wasnt too concerned.
    • Assistance pressing movement: Hack Squats
      90x8, 180x6, 230x6. 230x6 => Haven't done these FOREVER, they felt reallllllllll good
    • Assistance pulling/curling movement: Lying leg curls
      120x8x3
    • Assistance extension movement: Leg extensions
      140x8, 200x8x2
    • Auxiliary calf movement: Standing calf raise (machine)
      360x8, 400x8x3 => (racked)
    • Auxiliary calf movement: Seated calf raise (plate loaded)
      90x10, 180x10, 180x6 drop 135x10, 135x10, 90x10



    Overall, considering I was alone in a new gym after moving in today, I felt real good. Didnt go for any PR's or anything, but I feel like I could have. Still dont know if this bar is 45 or 50ish so I assumed the lower. Could very well be heavier though, I'll have to ask tomorrow when I go in for back.

    Sick upper back workout today. back width was

    * Bent over dB Rows
    60x8, 80x8, 100x5, 105x5 => thought the dB's went up higher here . . . I was wrong
    * Bent over BB Rows
    225x5, 225x5, 245x5 drop 225x5
    * Nautilis Lat Pulldowns (plate loaded)
    180x8, 270x6, 270x6, 270x6 drop 180x8
    * Yates Pulls (google if you dont know what they are) with lat pulldown bar, normal grip
    110x13, 130x13, 150x13
    * BB Shrugs (raw)
    135x10, 225x10, 315x8, 365x7 (last three had bad form), 315x8 => havent done shrugs in a long time
    * Seated Rows (cable)
    150x8, 200x5, 250x5 (rack) drop 200x5 drop 150x5


    I noticed some additional hardness last night and this morning around my abdominals. Nice

    Still not feeling any crazy strength though, considering buying another bottle and extending the cycle/increasing the dosage. Still have another 2ish weeks to decide though.

    Usualy takes 2-3 weeks for most. I think if you pick up another bottle ull get more out of. You could also increase the dose by 2mls or so.

    How are the pumps? I assume good?

    Yeah, if it does kick in this week, I'll definitely pick up another and maybe even up the dosage to 6ml

    Surprisingly not too different from before (Still using 1g agmatine, 6g cit malate and 2 servings of assault). TBH I dont think the pumps could get much better, lol

    I can imagine the pump has got to be good on those supps.
    I never really gave agmatine a fair go, you find it usefull for anything other then pumps?

    sounds good, I'll let you know whenever I figure it out myself, haha


    Alright, today was chest power day. Ive been getting up earlier and earlier each day to get me ready for my 5.45 wake up tomorrow morning, so today was 6.15. Was pretty slugish till I packed up and went off to the gym.

    * Flat Bench Press
    bar x15, bar x15, 135x8, 185x5, 225x5, 235x4 30s rest 235x1, 235x4 20s rest, 235x1, 225x5 drop 135x10 (pause reps)
    * Incline Nautilus Chest Press (plate loaded)
    90x8, 180x8, 270x6, 270x6
    * Flat/Decline Cable Flys
    55x10, 70x10, 70x10, 70x10
    * Flat Nautilus Chest press (plate loaded)
    90x8, 180x8, 230x8 drop 90x10
    * Flat dB Flys
    50x8, 60x8, 60x8


    Didnt realize till just now how much I neglected my upper chest (fffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuu), oh well I'll get it back in a few days.
    Strength has pretty well remained the same (small increase from last week) . . . wouldve probably cranked out some more if random people didnt run over to spot me every time I looked like I was 'struggling'. Freakin throws me off every time someone puts their hands randomly under the bar. Oh well.

    Diet unfortunately has not been where I would like it to be the past 2 days. I just went food shopping today so everything will be good this coming week . Now, its not that my diet has been crap, I have kept my cals to 2500 and my protein intake the same, but the quality of food was a bit less (i.e. muffins, 4 milano cookies for carbs&fat yesterday). I hear 'a calorie is a calorie' but the way I feel today is reason enough to not eat stuff like that again (stomach & gastrointestinal issues)

    But! That's all behind me now. Some things never change . . .

    Feeling BIG!


    Honestly, I hoped the strength aspect wouldve been better than this. 2 weeks are pretty much done and I haven't really gotten much other than some nice endurance 1 week ago. We'll see how this week turns out.

    Ugh . . .


    So, today at around 2.30pm (an hour before I am supposed to get off work), my mentor grabs me and takes me to a conference room to discuss some stuff. I was about to eat my preworkout meal, but I thought, eh I can wait till he finishes.

    Got out of the room at 4pm. I was pretty pissed, didnt want to eat and train immediately after, and I sure as hell didnt want to wait till 6 to train so I took 2 servings of maniac (had 2 sample packs with me) and hit the gym fasted. I hate working out fasted and today reminded me why. Not a bad day at all, energy levels were just shot.


    • Lower Body Power Exercise speed work: Squats
      bar x8, bar x8, 135x8, 225x3x6 => felt more explosive than usual today
    • Hypertrophy pressing movement: Front Squats
      135x8, 185x8, 205x6 => pretty much to failure
    • Hypertrophy extension movement: Leg extensions
      125x15, 180x15, 180x15
    • Hypertrophy curling movement: Lying leg curls
      95x15x3
    • Hypertrophy calf movement: Seated calf raises (plate loaded)
      135x13, 135x13, 90x13, 90x13, 90x15

    Was a really quick workout (about an hour), I knew I had to get back to my hotel and make rice and chicken. good news is that I found out the place Im staying has a working bbq right outside . . . grilled my chicken and was sooooo happy . Thinking about dropping by sams club and just picking up a whole ****load of chop meat from the freezer and just grilling it all.

    I have also had to alter my dosing schedule, and for the past two days Ive been doing 2ml at 6.15am, 1ml at 4pm, 1ml at 9.30pm. Definitely not optimal but I dont know what security would do if I tried bringing that stuff into work

    Not sure if Im going to do an off day or shoulders&back tomorrow. As long as I leave work when Im supposed to I'll make it to the gym and kill it.



    I should mention that Im still maintaining a low %bf at 2500 cal but I can feel that I wont be able to keep my cals this low for very long . . . my body is craving for bulking season to get into full swing, haha.


    edit: maybe not on the chop meat . . . even the 85/15 sirloin has 24g fat, 29g pro, 330 cal

    I'm not quite as far aslong as you are in the cycle, but i'm not noticing significant strength gains either. But what I am seeing is lowered fatigue on muscles, i'm adding reps and/or an additional set even at the same weights. First set the effort feels the same as before but I can power through for longer on later sets.

    I decided to go heavy on my shoulders today for my initial presses. Finally got word from the company handling my relocation and I will be getting some reimbursements which is a big relief for me financially.

    * Power shoulder movement: Standing Military Press
    bar x15, 95x5, 135x4, 135x4, 135x3 => blah, freakin weak. also my shoulders were grinding (I guess?) when I was going through the motions . . . i dunno

    * Pulling Power Exercise: Bent over BB rows
    135x10, 225x5, 245x5, 245x5 drop 225x3 drop 135x10 => grip is most of my limiting factor here

    * Hypertrophy shoulder pressing movement: Nautilus Shoulder Press (plate loaded, weight/side)
    45x8, 90x8, 100x5 drop 90x3 drop 45x8 => got some imbalances coming through, right side is weak

    * Hypertrophy lat movement: Lat Pulldowns
    120x8, 200x8, 220x8, 220x8 drop 170x8 drop 120x8

    * Hypertrophy shoulder movement: Seated dB lateral raises
    30x10, 35x8, 40x8 drop 30x8

    * Hypertrophy pulling movement: Yates Pulls (seated row with lat pulldown bar)
    120x10, 150x10, 170x8, 170x8 drop 120x8

    * Hypertrophy shoulder movement: Arnold dB Presses
    50x8, 55x8, 55x8

    * Finishing Death SuperSet: Bent over rear delt dB flys // Front lateral dB raises
    20x10 // 35x5, 20x10 // 25x6, 20x10 // 25x10


    So, while my strength took a little hit today, I gotta say my delts were pumped up. It wasnt even like the end of the workout pumped up (although that happened as well), my delts were huge after my 1st warm up set with my military's. I had to stop for a second and be like, whoa, I havent even started my workout yet lol.

    Unfortunately, my bottle of 5aOHP is getting kind of low . . . low to the point where it is becoming difficult to get the stuff out . All my fault obviously because I broke the blue cap and got the metered dropper stuck and ended up tossing it, but annoying none the less. Might be enough of a reason to get a second bottle all together, lol.

    So today was hypertrophy chest and arms. felt good, also some nice strength increases.



    * Strength/Endurance Test Exercise: Flat dumbbell presses
    60x8, 70x8, 80x8, 95x8 => where I was before my cals got too low, but still not as easy as before

    * Pressing Power Exercise speed work: Flat bench press (pause reps)
    bar x10, 135x5, 185x3x6

    * Hypertrophy pressing movement: Incline dumbbell presses (30s rest in between)
    75x8, 75x8, 75x8 => more than I was doing before, PR I guess, lol

    * Hypertrophy pressing movement: Nautilus chest press (plate loaded)
    90x15x3 => 30s rest in between

    * Hypertrophy curling exercise: Ez-curl bar preacher curls
    65x8, 75x8, 80x8 => more than last week, not a fan of the preacher bench here though

    * Hypertrophy curling exercise: dB curls on incline bench
    30x15, 25x15, 25x15

    * Hypertrophy curling exercise: Dumbbell concentration curls
    30x13, 25x13, 25x13

    * Hypertrophy extension exercise: Seated overhead tricep extension with Ez-curl bar
    75x8, 85x8, 80x8 => much better than last week

    * Hypertrophy extension exercise: Cable pressdowns with rope attachment
    60x13, 70x13, 70x13 => different weight stack from last week, no real change

    * Hypertrophy extension exercise: Cable kickbacks
    10x15, 10x15, 10x15, 10x15


    So, I got some strength gains from last week, nothing big though . . . could easily be contributed to my training.

    Still waiting for some gainz . . . but it looks like they may not come



    I have been noticing an very sharp increase in my hunger. I havent increased my cals at all, but I can tell that Im starving during the day. Good thing saturday is cheat day (ihop, workout, all you can eat sushi for dinner )
    ^^ The sushi is apparently very fresh and good quality. I havent been to this place, but it's reputation warrants a visit. for 20$, eh, cant really go wrong.

    Today was heavy legs . . . it was an extremely long day (not even counting work), and I was infuriated to a point before going to the gym. So much so that I had literally said to myself that I was going to train stupidly (with weight) today and see if I would fail. Not the smartest thing Ive ever done (lol) but it proved to give my legs one hell of a training session.

    Lower Body Power Day
    • Pressing Power Movement: Squats
      bar x15, bar x10, 135x8, 225x5, 315x3, 325x2 drop 225x3, 315x2 drop 275x3 drop 225x5 drop 135x15
    • Assistance pulling movement: Deadlifts
      135x5, 225x5, 315x2, 405x1, 425x1 => again, just thought Id throw them in to see how they felt after squats. felt better than last week.
    • Assistance pressing movement: Hack Squats
      90x8, 180x6, 250x6, 270x6 => 3 plates on each side of the hack squat, felt beastly
    • Assistance extension movement: Leg extensions
      200x8, 250x8 (rack), 220x8
    • Assistance pulling/curling movement: Lying leg curls
      120x8, 145x8, 145x6.5 drop 120x4
    • Auxiliary calf movement: Standing calf raise (machine)
      300x10, 400x8x3 => (racked)
    • Auxiliary calf movement: Seated calf raise (plate loaded)
      90x10x4, 45x10 single calf raises


    Felt real good today during my workout despite my day being in the ****ter. I'll see if this continues tomorrow with heavy chest. FINALLY working out with my partner so no more of this 5 rep heavy set bull**** . . . going 3 rep sets, and heaviest is going to failure .

    Honestly, if what I saw/felt today continues tomorrow, it may be reason enough to pick up another bottle (as I think I have ~1 week left)

    Well, working out with my old workout partner was pretty epic today. we both took today as an intense cheat day, so Ive probably had about 5k cals already lol. did heavy chest at gold's gym today , focused more on my upper chest


    * Incline Bench Press
    bar x15, 135x8, 185x5, 205x3, 215x3, 225x1 (PR)
    * Flat Bench Press
    bar x15, 135x8, 185x3, 225x3, 235x3 => focused more on incline today
    Incline dB Flys
    50x10x4
    * Hammer Strength Incline Chest Press (plate loaded)
    90x5, 180x6, 230x7, 230x7
    * Cable Flys on Incline Bench
    35x8, 35x8, 30x8, 30x8, 20x15, 20x20ish (lost track of reps, starting doing half reps, whatev)
    * Pec Deck Flys (put arms up higher on the bars to hit upper chest more)
    dont remember weight x dont remember reps x 3 sets (lol)
    * Rope Climbing (without using legs, approx 20ft up)
    1 climb up/down (for lulz)
    * Burnout: Incline Bench Press
    135x20, 135x16 (went past failure)


    Crazy workout today. Im still not used to having a spotter so I didnt utilize as much as I should have, but I managed to keep up with my old workout partner weight-wise which is good (he's on test/dbol and is 6'2'' 193 at like 5%bf lol)

    Dont know if today was enough to warrant the purchase of another bottle, I think Im good with hormonal stuff after this run for a good while (not meant as a bashing of the product by any means, just what I think in general)



    Obv, I will finish this run (duh) and run through my reversitol v2 + daa (+ maybe testalensis) while I increase my cals like a boss.

    But, I am getting ahead of myself . . . we still have more than a week of this stuff rite here! Let's do this.




    edit: oh, I transfered the remainder of my 5aOHP to a mini shaker cup because my metered dropper could no longer reach the liquid. I have it sealed in my fridge for storage for the remainder of my run (unless of course this is not a good idea . . . in which case I will simply leave it at room temp like before

    Freakin hurricane.

    Everyone's flipping out about it up here, when in reality all that we're getting is mediocre winds and rain. they shut down the mall (which my gym is in) in the middle of my second exercise . It was only an upper back day but Im still pretty ticked.

    What I did do . . .

    * Bent over bb rows
    135x10, 225x5, 245x4 (grip f'ed up), 245x5 drop 225x3, 225x4 (FUARKING GRIP, yes hurricane's fault as well )

    * Nautilus Lat Pulldown (plate loaded)
    90x8, 180x8, 230x8 . . . and thats it

    Not going to give a full update today, did bi's and tri's heavy, as well as finished up some back from yesterday

    Notables were going 225x3 on cgbp, up from last week and felt pretty easy. If I trusted the kid that was spotting me I wouldve gone for another but meh.
    Standing bicep curls were better as well. Stayed at 115 for 3 sets at 5, 5, 4 reps. More total weight moved compared to last week.


    Got my physical today . . . the doctor took my bp through 2 shirts right after I gave blood on the same arm. Wound up being 140/70 ish . . . to which not a single f was given. Last time I took my bp it was 110/60 so Im pretty sure she just f'ed up the test. I'll have the real doctor do it again properly when I follow up on friday.

    Oh, and I weighed in at 167 this morning . . . fully clothed, with at least 1L of water in me desperately needing to pee, lol. Definitely some weight gain, but I'll need to narrow it down this weekend. Im guessing I'll be ~162/163 dry post morning pee.

    Had some good fun with hypertrophy legs today. Decided to go heavy (5reps) on some of the movements


    • Lower Body Power Exercise speed work: Squats
      bar x13, bar x13, 135x8, 225x3x6
    • Hypertrophy pressing movement: Front Squats
      135x5, 185x5, 205x5, 225x5 PR
    • Hypertrophy pressing movement: dB Lunges (reps / leg)
      80x5, 90x5, 90x5
    • Icarian Super Squat Machine (emulated back squats, plate loaded)
      90x5, 180x5, 270x5, 320x5, 540x6 => Never done these before so idk if they're good or not, lol. PR'd technically though.
    • Hypertrophy curling movement: Lying Hamstring Curls
      125x15, 110x15, 100x10 drop 90x5
    • Hypertrophy calf movement: Seated calf raises (plate loaded)
      90x13, 135x13, 180x10, 135x10, 90x13
    • Hypertrophy calf movement: Calf raises on leg press machine (30s rest in between sets)
      300x10, 400x8, 300x10


    Not really too much to say today, got my PR on front squats (I was going atg btw) which was pretty sweet considering it was after my working sets of back squats. I had some fun on the super squat machine (legs were shaking getting those last reps up). Hamstrings were pumped as hell doing lying leg curls, which is usually bad as that means they are on the verge of cramping up for me. Thankfully I finished my workout and stretched everything out so I'm all good now .

    Decided to kill my shoulders today. Went well, lol


    * Power shoulder movement: Standing Military Press
    bar x15, 95x5, 135x5, 140x3, 135x3 => meh, better than last week, but not by much.

    * Power shoulder movement: Seated dB shoulderpresses
    60x5, 75x4, 75x5 => meh, havent done them in a while. not bad after standing military's I guess

    * Hypertrophy Delt Movement: Leaning dB lateral raises
    30x10, 35x10, 40x10, 40x10

    * Hypertrophy shoulder movement: Standing Alternating dB front raises (reps/arm)
    40x8x3

    * Hypertrophy shoulder pressing movement: Nautilus Shoulder Press (plate loaded, weight/side)
    45x8, 90x8, 115x3 drop 90x3 drop 70x3 drop 45x5 15s rest 45x3 => right delt is weak as **** . . . sigh

    * Hypertrophy Rear Delt: Bent over rear delt dB flys (individual)
    20x15x3

    * Hypertrophy shoulder movement: Seated dB lateral raises
    30x10x4

    * Hypertrophy shoulder movement: Exaggerated BB Seated Shoulders Press (close grip, elbows in, holding bar ~6in away from face at bottom, pushing straight up, forearms always perpendicular to ground)
    45x10, 55x10, 55x9, 55x8 10s rest 55x2 => kills front delts, havent done it in a while



    All and all good stuff, nothing huge, just good strength and very nice vascularity/pump.

    Checked my stock a few minutes ago . . . looks like I'll have enough for tomorrow and that's it . Oh well, now at least I get to go into bulk mode for the a couple years or so

    Figures the last day on 5aOHP I get some pretty significant strength increases . Oh well, these things happen.

    DAA+Testalensis 100 (lol) starts tomorrow. Im going to try loading at 6g / day for a week or so to see if I notice anything different from 3g/day. testalensis will be run at 3caps/day.

    Will get my final review up tomorrow along with my after pictures and weight. Although, I weighed in at 163 this morning, so that will probably be the same in the morning, lol.

    Final Review is inbound with after pics (kind of disappointing with the pics, mostly due to my phone, not the results )

    Just wanted to say that my squats today were alright, same as last week.
