    I felt great today during my workout but had to rush it because of a busy day, so I didn't get everything done, but progress is being made. I do need to cut back the calories a bit though, the last two days I ate 3300+ calories due to the increased hunger brought about by being on an anabolic. The water retention seems to have stabilized and maybe cut back a little bit with the addition of an AI.

    Nice numbers on the DB's bro. Adding in the AI is a good move, and that will reflect in drying out some. You should notice that in your appearance

  2. Day 9

    Bi's tri's and forearms


    Felt good to finally do bi's and tri's by themselves for once. I did reach a new record for myself on the EZ Bar with standing curls and that was 8 reps at 115 lbs. Still have not noticed mass increase in the arms but wouldn't expect that in a week. Kept it at 4 pumps again today and not sure if I will go back to 5 or not.


    Day 10

    Legs (Sorta) and traps

    I am noticing that my cardio capacity has gone down a bit due to higher BP and heart rate. Pre-cycle I was able to do a 6:30 minute mile on the treadmill whereas now I struggle to stay at a 7 minute pace for over 3 minutes straight. I couldn't do traditional legs because I have a real bad know in my hip/glute, so I could not squat. I did however do 6 sets at 10 reps of leg extensions and 4 sets of hamstring curls along with some bodyweight squats to stretch. Traps I did about 12 sets of shrugs in various forms, I need to get my mid summer traps back as they have shrunk over the past month or so. Either way besides deminished cardio output the Transaderm seems to be doing a good job, especially with increasing hunger.

  3. yeah, the increased appetite is for real....
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  4. Very nice bro! That appetite increase can be a good or bad thing I guess depending on your goal. Luckily for me when I start up Transaderm in a couple weeks I will officially be starting my lean bulking season.

    I would just bulk to feb-mar. I'm actually going to be bulking for the next year and a half. I'm tired of going back and forth.

  8. Day 11

    Back

    Behind the neck pulldowns triset with side planks and six inches
    5x10

    Cable Rows triset with hanging leg raises and 1 arm 1 leg planks

    Machine pull up grip rows triset with good mornings and stationary leg raises
    4x10

    lat pulldowns

    Overall a good day today as I was able to put up some very good numbers and maintain the strength through my workout. I also had good energy and was able to do so HIIT cardio at the end to keep my cardiovascular system in shape. I had a slight headache at the end of HIIT but nothing bad. Im hoping to do chest tomorrow and set some new PR's on 12 rep sets. I think I am going to run 4 day splits now and train my arms seperately so I can really hit em hard while they arent exhausted from other exercises. After my workout today I went to 5 pumps of Transaderm, so we will see how training goes tomorrow

  9. Day 12

    Chest and Shoulders

    DB Bench Press triset with decline crunches and weighted crunch machine
    4x12 last set PR 100'sx11

    BB decline bench press

    Shoulder shocker
    3 sets using 35's and 10's


    Day 13 Bi's Tri's forearms and shrugs

    Biceps routine

    seated EZ bar curl 4x12
    seated preacher curl 4x12
    standing curl 4x10

    Triceps
    rope pushdown 16, 14, 8, 6 reps
    straight bar pushdown 16, 14, 8, 6
    triceps extension machine 4x12

    Shrugs
    Jump shrugs 3x12
    behind back shrugs 3x15
    regular shrugs 3x10

    forearm curl 3x15


    Still having some some high blood pressure issues even with taking COQ10. Estrogen has fallen, but still some retention of water. My weight now is at 189 which is up 3 lbs from the start. Some may be water retention and some may be fat, with mostly muscle gain. My biggest issue is just the pectoral area where fat/water is beginning to show around the nipples again. My set maxes are up, and I have gained size so it is working in terms of strength though.

    I used to be that way. Last year went from 170 to 200 in 5 months. Problem is getting big quick means getting fat even quicker. I spent 5 months after my bulk cutting to get to where I am now in my Avi. I hate bodyfat with a passion, so I will only lean bulk now. 9-10% bodyfat is as high as I will ever be again and no more big cuts for me.

  11. Yea I hate body fat too that's why I TRY to stay clean and eat about 200-300 above maintenance even on a bulk but occasionally I slip with the beer and such

  14. It's not too bad now either, but when I was in college I never would have been able to run a good log or a serious cycle because every Friday and Saturday I used to knock back about 20 beers per night. Now I may drink 1 or 2 a few times a week.

    Same here. I used to crush it on a friday night...drink a half a fifth and then go to a keg and drink 10-20 and black out....

    the good ole days....lol

  16. Haha those the good days. I miss when my weekends were a blur, but I am a fan of waking up now and not feeling like hell every Saturday and Sunday

  17. Day 13 Off day.

    Day 14

    Back

    Lat Pulldowns
    4x10
    On 4th set when at failure, drop set. I continued to drop 20 lbs each set and do 4 total drop sets

    Bent over row

    50lbsx18 reps by 4 sets.
    Only had low weights at the gym I was at today because I was out of town so had to make due with 50 lbs.

    Ab wheel 4x10 reps with 2 sec hold at full extension
    6 inches: 4 sets at 45 seconds

    Lat row with straight bar

    4x10 with drop sets same as lat pulldowns,

    I have always done dropsets but I usually only do my last set as a dropset, but I saw this on AM's articles as a training style and wanted to try it, especially since I had limited equipment. Now that it is the next day I feel somewhat sore too, which is good.



    Day 15

    Chest and shoulders (2-3 min rest between sets)

    DB Bench Press triset with hanging leg raise and calf raises

    4x12 regular
    4 dropsets starting with 100 LB DB's and drop to 80 for 2nd set, 75 for 3rd and 70 for 4th

    Incline DB Press triset with calf raises and reverse crunches
    Same method as DB press but highest set with 75's.

    standing rows triset with forearm curl and pushups
    4x12 with 95 as highest weight

    Pec fly machine
    130lbsx10
    170x10
    190x8 downset with 150 and 100

    Did 5 minutes of sprints on the exercise bike, and a 10 minute warmup preWO. I had some shoulder weakness in my capsule from sleeping on it several nights in a row. This could be seen as my right shoulder was much weaker on incline benches. I noticed the same issue from dry joints during an H-drol cycle a year ago, so I will up my fish oils to 5 gms a day from 3. BP issues seem to be getting along better unless I consume any caffeine where I almost get a panic attack. This is odd considering I am a heavy caffeine user usually and have normally low BP (108/72) precycle.

  18. Nice workout bud

  19. Thanks, I like varying my workouts alot so I don't get bored and so my muscles adapt.

    Day 16
    Arms and traps

    Still have a pinched nerve in my glute/hip so can't do legs yet which sucks.

    EZ bar seated curl
    4x10 last set at 90 lbs

    Skull crushers
    4x10 last set at 80 lbs

    wide grip shrugs
    5x10 with downsets after 5th set

    BB wide grip curl
    3x12 with downsets at end

    bar pushdown
    16 reps, 14, 8, 6

    rope extension
    4x10


    Im looking for a new arms routine soon as mine is getting bland though. My shrugs were also shortened today because my wrist strap ripped in half, so I just went lighter and did more reps. Either way tomorrow is back day and more cardio so should be a better day

  20. Day 17

    Notcing some mass increase in my pecs and my shoulders. I have also noticed hardening in my abdominal area even though theres slightly more fat/water there.


    Back Day coupled with side ab exercise (forget the name) and squat jumps

    Pull ups at body weight, which was 190 today

    21, 15, 15, 12, 12

    Close grip pull down triset with side planks and jumping side lunges
    4xfailure with 2 more sets as downsets after initial 4

    Behind head pull down with 1 arm 1 leg planks
    160x10 for 4 sets and downset on last set

    Cable row couples with Light Deadlifts
    4xfailure with downset on last set

    Deadlifts were very light due to my back/leg/hip issue, but did em more as a cardio exercise. Things going well for my BP now and an increase in mass can be seen in the mirror. I can say joint pain in the elbows and popping in the shoulders is becoming a hassle now even with increased fish oil consumption.

  21. Looks like you are getting some good physique changes from the Transaderm.

    For the joints, get some cissus if you can. Works great! If anything glucosamine or MSM will also help

    "This is what we've been working on"

  22. how many g's of fish oil ED??

  23. Yea I have some glucosamine here I'm gonna start using. I haven't had real good experience with cissus it never works well but I'm using joint force too. I am using 4-5 gms of fish oil daily

    N2BM has two joint products that I know of. Forged Joint Repair and Skeletal Balm. I haven't used either. I actually am using Core Flex right now. I'm sure all are viable options.

  25. Yea I'm using mainly what's around now because I'm a bit short on the cash with this whole not finding a job after graduating thing I have going

  26. You might want to give L arginine a try to see if it helps out with your blood pressure.

    I can inderstand that. I am short on being able to spend any more on supplements myself right now

  28. Day 18

    Chest

    Same overall workouts as before but with my DB bench press I did 7 reps at 110's on the DB's and did downsets from there on. Still noticed a bit of my joints giving out, but im hoping that if I go a little heavier with benches I'll get used to them again..


    Day 19

    Bi's and forearms

    Really worked to get a stretch and a pump in my bi's today. On my last heavy set of curls I got 85 up 8 times with no shoulder involvement. Eitherway I am starting to notice more lean gains with limited fat/water retention. I still am having a slight headache with support supps. but not too bad, and am liking the way this cycle is moving along. My current weight was 189, down a lb from before and around 10.5% BF.

    Day 20

    Off day.

  29. Taurine is the answer for BP and any other sides you might feel with this. It lowers BP dramatically. You just have to build up a tolerance for 4-5 grams a day. Initially it will give you the runs at that level. Cheap too!

    Vanadium is the answer for cheat days, as long as you don't use it more than a couple days a week as it is somewhat liver toxic, but it will totally stuff those nutrients into muscle cells rather than fat cells.

  30. I have some raiding I'll have to dose higher because I've been running about a gm every other day but I'll dose higher from now on. I also have na-rala for cheat days, I don't really want vanadium if it's toxic.
