Rhadam Solidifies gains with CEL/AI/SNS/LG and other great companies!
I'd like to thank CEL for sending me some products to help out my SD PCT. I'm running PCT Assist + SNS DAA as well as Tamox for my SERM. I've started a watered down version of this log at another site, but i wanted to get it going here on AM because i'll be free to talk about things more freely. I'd also like to thank AI sports for sending me some RecoverPro to help my recovery through PCT. They were kind enough to let me compare the recovery on cycle vs recovery during PCT when adding a BCAA product.
I'm not new to the world of PHs, but this will prove to be my most successfull cycle so far. My nutrition and split work has greatly improved over the 2 years i've started lifting consistantly. I will be able to accurately assess how PCT Assist + DAA helps HTPA recovery when added to Tamoxifen, and i will be able to assess how RecoverPro helps my recovery after coming off very high T. Here's my current product lineup and dosage scheme:
Product usage is pretty simple. Taking 1 serving of DAA (3g), 2 servings of PCT assist, 2 servings of Anavite (to get 3g of BA), 2 servings of OxiMega, Protein to fit macros, 1 serving of Fierce. Tamoxifen not pictured. I also have Clen, which i was waiting about a week to start. I wanted to drop the initial water weight i gained and stabilize before starting clen. I'll be running 80mcg a day to start, and work up to 120mcg. I'll run 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. 2 months total on Clen.
A quick rundown of the cycle: I gained 15lbs off SuperDrol, i ran LGI SD-10 and found it to be accurate. I ran 1 week @ 20mg, then 3 weeks @ 30mg. I've never run anything close to being as toxic as SD, i've only ran P-Mag and Hdrol, but my body handled it quite well i think. I didn't pre load anything, only took 2 servings of SNS Liver Assist per day. Shutdown sucks, but i'm feeling great now. I've run DAA with Tamox before on lighter compounds, but i have to say that CEL's PCT Assist has really improved DAA. My recovery is going great! Libido was rock bottom, and within about 5 days i was much improved. Acne started at about that point too, but i always get acne on DAA. No acne through SD rofl.
The goal here is to obviously assess CEL's PCT Assist and AI's RecoverPro, but i will continue the log talking about other great products i use in PCT and throughout my training. I have a goal to possibly take the stage next year so this will keep my progress even more motivated. I feel i have a pretty good understanding of supplements and what works and what doesn't. I'll post some of my previous workouts to get this going and give people an idea of where i stand post SD.

Day 11 PCT Weight:189
So yesterday's leg hypertrophy workout went... weird in a fashion. I decided to start a Clen, took 40 mcg at around 4pm and i was FUKD UP lol. At 7 i still had mad shakes, elevated heart rate and a throbbing head. Waited till 8 to roll to the gym cause i couldn't stand it anymore. I toned down the weights just a tick, but still kept the rate and intensity very high. Typical rest between sets was 15-20 seconds.
10 x 135, 10 x 165, 10 x 175, 6 x 155
10 x 135, 10 x 155, 9 x 165, 8 x 155
10 x 180, 10 x 180, 9 x 180
Lay Down Hammy Curl
9 x 80, 7 x 90, 8 x 80
3 sets of standing calf raise
That was it, i would have liked to do lunges but my body was just all fukd up. I'm going to play with the timing and dosage of Clen for a few days so this hopefully won't be happening any more. Not much other than the usual to talk about as far as PCT sides. Just about back to wanting to jump on every hot girl that comes up to me at work. Except the ones i see every other night that are complete bar sluts. Hah. Weight seems to be staying consistant, should be 190 here shortly.
08-22-2011, 04:29 PM
Just to get the log up to speed, DAA and PCT assist have been SUPERB so far. After 4 weeks of SD, 3 week @ 30mg i was shut down hard. In under 5 days of Nolva + DAA + PCT Assist i felt 100% better and libido was up. For the last 2 weeks of SD i had no sex drive, couldn't even finish lol, felt depressed a bit and very lethargic. So far 11 days in i'm feeling like a new man. I've taken Nolva two other times, and i've taken DAA + Nolva once before so i have a pretty good judge on my PCT experience. I really do think that PCT Assist has improved my PCT very much.

Today is day 12 of pct, took the day off. Needed some much needed rest and relaxation. Took another 40mcg of clen, sides were a bit reduced. I think tomorrow i may bump up to 60 mcg. Tomorrow starts another beginning to the split, will be upper body power.
I don't know if i said anything but i run a version of Layne Norton's PHAT routine. I've been running this for about 5 months or so now and i am very pleased with the progress i've made. I've always run a simple split, hitting each muscle group once a week, and i've found that hitting them 2x a week and being able to do strength and hypertrophy has really helped my gains both in strength and size. Only drawback is that it seems you need to be on cycle to actually do this right!
Hopefully the gift pack from AI Sports Nutrition arrives tomorrow so i can get started with RecoverPro. If it doesn't, i'll just take some BC+EAA which i also love.

PCT Day 12 Weight: 186
Well i've dropped another lb or two, but my calorie intake has still been quite high. I ate a ton of food on sunday before and after legs, then i ate a ton of food monday post legs... both days were well over maintenance. I guess Clen is quite strong lol. Oh well. I have another shout out, this one goes to CEL. Yesterday's workout was one of the best workouts i've had in months. This combo of PCT Assist and DAA is just phenomenal. I can't say enough about how much my strength is staying up during PCT. My recovery has dropped, but i expected that. By my aggression and strength in the gym is fantastic. Here's the numbers, i hope i'm not the only one impressed lol.

Tried to do some abs, but after 1 set on the roller my abs seized up and i said that will do it for the night lol. I was exhausted but i couldn't believe the workout i had. So many PRs. It's not like i randomly decided to push myself, i was destroying my body on cycle and pushing hard these past days on PCT. This is simply what you can do with good nutrition and a great PCT.
08-24-2011, 08:12 PM
I have a HUGE shout out to get to before i post today's Lower Body Power numbers.
I need to throw props to AI Sports Nutrition.
The boys over at AI were gracious enough to send me some RecoverPro so i could judge just how much BCAAs help my recovery after coming off cycle. Not only did they send me RecoverPro, they send the HUGE 125 serving container. They also tossed in a Large shirt, thanks for not making it the XL boys and a bunch of samples. I've said it before, and i'll say it again: AI is one of THE BEST companies in the business. I have great respect for Crowler and all that he does. These guys go above and beyond ever day, and the amount they give back to the bros here on the boards is phenomenal.
Oh and when i google image searched "AI sports nutrition" this came up, figured i'd drop it in here too. EXPLAIN YOURSELVES!

Day 13 PCT Weight: 186
Pretty decent leg day, although i had a conversation with one of the few guys i trust (he's a physical specimine and has never touched a PH) and he gave me some leg workout pointers. I'm going to drop the weight a bit on my power leg days and get more range of motion. I was so focused on going as heavy as possible i'm not giving myself enough range to get maximum exertion.
Took my first serving of RecoverPro and DAMN... tastes amazing. I have the raspberry and it's delicious. I mixed it with SAN Fierce, tasted delicious. Friday when i start hypertrophy days i'll take it by itself. Mixed perfectly. Nice job AI Bros!
4 x 225, 4 x 275, 4 x 295, 4 x 315 PR, 3 x 325 PR, 3 x 315

PCT Day 14
Today is a much needed off day. Will rest and relax a bit, and eat as much as i can, something i love to do after leg workouts. Tomorrow will be some sort of hypertrophy upper body day. Either back/chest or shoulders/arms. We'll see how recovered i am.
Took 80mcg of clen today, no sides to report which is great. I'll probably bump to 100 tomorrow and hit 120 mcg by sunday. Next week i'll run a full week at 120mcg, then cycle off. So far, clen seems to be more powerfull than i imagined lol. DAA/PCT Assist has me always hungry and eating a ton of food, but i'm still shedding weight lol. Kinda makes me wish i gained a bit more weight on cycle... but oh well.
08-27-2011, 05:11 PM
Day 15 PCT Weight: 185
Weight dropped even more, Clen!!!!!!!!!!!! Kinda depressing losing this much lol. Gotta up the calories even more and go grocery shopping. Honestly i've been slacking the past few days, been ridiculously busy, sleep has been HORRIBLE because the bar is crazy and we're getting out of there at like 3am every morning. I eat late then fall asleep after 4. Feels bad man. Yesterday's workout was arguably the worst i've had in a few months. Had no energy, stamina was in the dumps, just couldn't pick it up. I'll post up some other thoughts after the workout.
10 x 65, 9 x 70, 7 x 80, 9 x 65
Bent Over Row
10 x 135, 10 x 155, 9 x 165, 10 x 145
12 x 135, 12 x 145, 8 x 145
Bodyweight Pull ups
12, 10, 8
Flat Peck Deck
12 x 140, 12 x 160, 9 x 140
Reverse grip lat pulldown
12 x 130, 10 x 140, 10 x 120
Legs feel a bit better recovered than they normally would, 1 day after this chest/back session my chest feels better as well. Took RecoverPro by itself yesterday and the flavor is awesome. It's a bit tart, which i like, but the flavor is very tasty. Taking 2 scoops.
08-30-2011, 04:52 PM
Whelp, needed a couple days off to revitalize. Was feeling pretty crappy saturday and sunday. Work has been taking it's toll. Plus nutrition has been pretty crappy. Yesterday's upper body power workout was decent, but i seem to be VERY short on endurance. I don't know whether it's the last of the PH leaving my system, or the absence of Fierce which provided great endurance through creatine nitrate and l-aspartic acid; or maybe it's the lack of sleep and proper nutrition. Regardless, i am starting this week pissed and ready to get shiit done. Went and bought a bunch of groceries, got some good stuff to eat.
PCT Day 18
Upper Body Power
Bent Over BB Row
4 x 235, 3 x 245, 4 x 235, 4 x 225

Hammer Strength Behind Neck Press
4 x 180, 4 x 180, 4 x 180
I did 2 sets each for bi and tri but didn't write anything down. Was severely tired and worn out.
Took my resting heart rate yesterday: 96 beats per minute. This seems bad. Gotta love 100mcg of clen.
Took 2 scoops about 15 minutes before my workout yesterday and today i am feeling great. Not too sore, and for a weird reason my legs feel great, when they're normally tight in general. Also gotta say i freaking love the taste of the raspberry. I disline sweet things before my workout or intra workout, but RecoverPro has just the right amount of tartness to keep me drinking water and feeling great. Gotta say i'm pretty surprised as to how recovered i am today.

I know what you mean about the lack of sleep- I've been super busy myself lately

So, a bit of an update. I usually update every day or other day at most, but i had a bit of a setback.
Last week i cut my right hand up pretty bad at work. I'm a bartender and i was stacking pint glasses up pretty high and the pressure got too great and the bottom glass broke and cut straight in to my right hand. I've not worked for about 5 days, and i haven't been in the gym. Been pretty depressed about it lol, haven't gotten on the boards in days, which i feel like a complete POS about. Before hurting the hand i had a couple workouts i haven't posted, couple chest PRs still which is awesome.
RecoverPro has been fantastic while i was still lifting. I did an upper body power workout and the next day i wasn't sore at all. Simply rediculous. I'm loving the 2 scoops pre workout, and it's tart enough it doesn't make me sick and i drink a ton of water intra workout which is awesome. Gonna be keeping the log going even after i finish PCT because i'll be adding Stoked, out of my own stash, to keep E down and my hunger up. Really want to thank AI SPORTS for letting me use the RecoverPro while finishing PCT, and I want to give them more publicity through Stoked.
As always, PCT Assist + DAA is treating me fantastic! My libido is back to normal now, and energy is high even though i have a shiity sleep schedule and nutrition sometimes. I've been recommending PCT Assist to anyone that asks about cycle information. Can't say enough about it.
All in all, i'm hoping to hit the gym tomorrow for back/chest hypertrophy. Wanted to get in today but the hand still has 1 big cut that's not closed up. Bought some boxer tape today so i'm gonna wrap the crap out of it tomorrow and do work.
09-15-2011, 04:05 PM
Well i'm back in the gym hitting it hard after my hand injury. PCT is basically over, i'll be posting a comprehensive review of my time on CEL PCT Assist and SNS DAA. All in all this has been one of the most fantastic PCTs i've ever had. Besides keeping most of my weight gain which is amazing, the recovery has been great and libido is better than ever. I've always suffered from Low T, but this Tamoxifen + PCT Assist + DAA has me living like a king.
RecoverPro is treating me great as well. I did an upper body power workout and 2 days later hit chest and back hypertrophy fully recovered. 2 days? U serious? Ya bros that's the power of RecoverPro. I am about to add a couple new supps when PCT ends tomorrow. Will be posting this up. Going to be more love for AI and some for CL.

Training took a bit of a down-turn for a few days. I injured my bicep a week ago and yesterday was my first day back. I wasn't updating every day post PCT since RecoverPro works so damn well i don't have much to say other than i feel great!
There are new additions to the stack, and i'm happy to announce another shout-out to AI Sports Nutrition!
I feel kinda bad about the log taking a turn for the worse with the hand injury and my strained bicep, so i've decided to add some AI Sports Nutrition love! I'd like to keep this estrogen in check for a bit longer, so i'm adding one of my favorite products, Stoked! Stxnas was so generous with the 125 serving tub, it's the least i could do to buy some Stoked and add it in. The guys at AI are so nice and generous, and the products work! So here's what i'm currently working with:
09-25-2011, 05:40 PM
I added the Agmatine and Green Bulge 1 week ago, and i'll be starting Stoked tomorrow! I've read about both Green Bulge and Agmatine for a while, and i've always been impressed with the results from both. Agmatine has definitely increased my endurance and pumps, and most muscle fascia stretching and tearing means more muscle breakdown which means more muscle growth! Green bulge is a great all-around creatine product that features great pump and nutrient partitioning qualities! I've been taking Agmatine and Green Bulge 45 min before workout with carbs and the workouts have been phenomenal.
Between pushing myself harder because of increased recovery with RecoverPro and tougher workouts with Agmatine and Green Bulge it's no surprise i strained a bicep. I'm still holding at 187lbs which is FANTASTIC! I'm SO excited to start Stoked as it really increases my hunger which will help me keep adding lean lbs, and the estrogen control will be nice post PCT!

One more thing, for those of you guys who go to school for hours on end, might i recommend this:
I grabbed this kit in july on sale, and using it now has been a life saver. I used to spend so much money eating out and not getting what i wanted. Now i can pack some food and even leave it in my car and it stays cool. I'm dissapointed that i never thought to buy this sooner haha.

09-26-2011, 08:27 PM
The regular price is $35, but we have sales more often than not. If you can catch it on sale, it's actually a better deal than the comparable Coleman's that for $20 - $25 (they don't have the other goodies though). It has some decent size to it, too.

So i tried to do the upper body power workout yesterday, i'm going to have to play with my routine a bit after what happened. I started with incline bb, shoulder gave out on third set. I've always had shoulder problems, but for some reason after straining my left bicep, my left shoulder now wants to get all weak. I got through chest and back but tried doing a shoulder machine and i was done. Will be skipping all bar exercises for a while as it puts too much pressure on shoulders. I think for the time being i will be skipping shoulder workouts, and in their place i'll be doing shoulder rehab stuff. Try to strengthen the tendons a bit before i go heavy again.
I think part of the issue, and i was told this by another guy who's been watching my progress, was that i gained so much weight in the last couple months and added a bunch of weight on the lifts that my body was not ready for. The muscles grew faster than the tendons, and i'm running the risk of doing real injury... and actually it's already starting to happen.
Doing legs today, that at least i can do pain free lol. Wednesday is an off day. By thursday i'll know what i'm doing and will be able to start logging this and really checking out the recovery.
09-28-2011, 03:47 PM
Today is rehab research day. I'll be planning a new split to hopefully give my left shoulder and left bicep some time off as well as some much needed ligament strengthening. I will be scouring the internet for the best physical therapy exercises for both of those issues.
I got a pretty decent leg workout in yesterday, only had about an hour but i made it count. 5 sets of parallel squats, 4 sets Romanian Deadlift, 4 sets leg press and 4 sets hammy leg curl. Max effort on all sets, i was sweating profusely Now i basically have today to plan for tomorrow and then hit legs again. For a pretty heavy workout yesterday my legs feel awesome. RecoverPro doing work as always. I can't say enough about the flavor. It's more tart (to me) than sweet, so i can drink it intra during a leg workout and not feel sick, from the flavor at least haha.
09-28-2011, 06:20 PM
LOL. I was going to say...not feel sick on leg day? Blasphemy!
