    IBE Protomax Cut/Recomp Log


    First and foremost this log is for myself, to keep me motivated, on track, and to look back later on and see how things went. This is my 2nd run; ran a similiar one last year only for like 5 weeks and didn't get much past 75mgs. Was bulking and gained about 7-8 of muscle and alot of fat during my pct. Not gonna bulk this years and gonna try and keep it clean.


    Protomax- 50/50/75/75/100/100

    Support Supplements- (started preload last week)
    Hawthorn Berry- 1500mg ED
    Live 52- 6 tablets ED
    Milk Thistle- 3gms ED
    Saw Palmetto- 1gm ED

    Staples-
    Orange Triad
    Fish Oil
    Whey
    BCAA

    Bridge-
    11-Kt- 12 sprays 3 weeks
    CEL Formestane 2 Pumps

    PCT-
    Nolva- 10/10/5/5
    Supress-C- 2 pumps ED
    Purus Labs D-Pol 6 weeks

    Diet-
    2200Cal (500cal deficit). Gonna try and stay under 50gms Fat and over 200gms protein, the rest will be good carbs.

    Routine- Finishing up a P90X Phase and Volume training, 3-4 sets 10-12 reps. I'll post a link soon. Also gonna do cardio 3x a week for about 45 min w/ abs.

    Stats- Edomorph/Mesomorph
    Height- 5'7.5
    Weight- 191.5
    Measurements- Coming Soon

    Goals-
    Tighten up, loose about 3% body fat, gain some muscle/strength

    Day 1- Nothing to report. Will probably report back in a few days. Last time I began noticing effect after about day 5. Usually a little more vascular and arms felt tight.

    We need more protomax logs IMO. Nice to see this running on a cut.

    Any particular reason why your running 11kt and Suppress C both in PCT?

    [B]Day 4[/B]


    Slept hard the last couple nights. Woke up really groggy this am. Felt a bit anxious and bold today. No temper/anger problems so thats a ++. Gym work out looked like this:

    Motivation 9/10
    Strenght 6/10
    Endurance 6/10
    Agression 9/10
    Energy 6/10
    Pumps 9/10


    Strength was deffinitly off compared to last week. Not a whole lot of energy but I had just go off work and I'm starting to tapper off Stims so only 1 3/4 scoop New White Flood. Pumper were great toward the end so big plus.

    Day 5


    Weight - 191.5 No Change

    BP- 120/70 up a lil from last week was 106/68

    Felt awsome today. Slept great, felt good in am. Felt really clear headed today. Never felt tired at all during the day and didn't stim at all.

    W/O- Shoulders

    Endurance was better today, but did slow down about and really concentrate on my lifts. Pumps were awsome and stuck around for a while, especially in my chest. Fee like i'm leaning out a tad. I think next week this stuffs really gonna start kicking in.

    Upped dosage to 75mgs today.

    Haven't noticed much. Vascularity was really good today during my workout, mainly forearms. Weight seems to be climbing and my diet has been perfect.

    Does this look decent for my cycle or what should I add.

    On cycle
    Cycle assist -pre load 2 weeks continue through cycle
    Organ shield- start last two weeks of proto and through pct
    Protomax 50/50/50/50 no intentions of bumping up.

    Pct
    Nolvadex
    Redefine revolution black pct
    Redefine puretest

    And the usual proteins,vita, fishoils, creatine, oxyelite

    Its kinda rude to just jump in someone elses thread n ask a question like this bro... Make your own dedicated thread for your question... Its no harder then a regular post...

    Looks good IMO. Not sure how much liver support that Cycle assist has in it but I always like to take extra like some LIV52 or Milkthistle, really cheap too. Also watch them stims could elevate your BP even higher than the proto. Hey good luck PM me anytime w/ Questions.

    Day 10


    Tri's/ Quads

    P/W 200mg str8 Caffein. Felt really good for this workout. Was real motivated going in and throughout. Strength felt good, pumps in my tris were awsome and did not want to leave the gym, endurance was awsome. The Alpha feelings really starting to kick in. Weight also looked up again a little this morning. My official weight day is friday so i'll keep you guys informed. I'm also down to my last hole on my "Bulk" belt so gonna have to switch to my "cut" belt soon; can't wait to see how that one fits.

    Log's lookin good so far! I'm very interested in the DHT prohormones and about to pull the trigger on Protomax so I'm following closely. I'm curious, have you tried Stano-drol or D-plex and can you make a comparison to Protomax?

    Day 13


    Shoulders/Bi's

    Woke up feeling awsome this am. Weight was down a lil, but looked real lean. Starting to see alot of improvements. Diet and exercise has been spot on.

    I forgot to mention a couple things I've been using. I jst finished two weeks of DS Leanxtreme, had some in the cupboard and wanted to get rid of it, usually can never tell if this stuff works or not. Also been using Eviscerate on my chest, stomach, and love handles; this stuff usually takes 4-5 weeks before you see results so...

    Work out was awsome today. Energy was great, Pumps were insane, and vascularity in my arms were insane. Was really motivated going into this one and totally alpha.

    Day 16


    Chest/Bi

    Felt great today; Really motivated and was looking forward to this workout all day. Felt a bit stronger today. Endurance was excellent, was a little rushed but got done w/ mostly everything. Pumps were awsome and vascularity was better than normal. Weight has been down a tad. Starting to look leaner. Shirts are getting tighter in the chester and arm area. Also notice my waist is getting a lil bit smaller.

    Sides: Starving, Feeling a little dried out in the am, a few headaches here and there. Libido's shot!

    Thinking about jumping up to 100mg next week, gonna ride this week out and play it by ear.

    Day 17


    Great Mood lately; No agression/anger problems. Maybe the Rhodiola or St. John's war, not sure.

    Thrashed my quads today, had a hard time walking out of the gym, lol love that. Recovery seems to be getting a little better, I should know for sure tomorrow. Was able to fit comfortably in some old shert that were to tight in the gut area, still feel a lil snug in the chest ; )

    Nothing else to report. Found an awsome deal on another bottle of D-Pol and Size-on both were $53 w/ shipping.

    Day 19


    Weight 195


    Weights down a 1.5 from last week. Looking lean so all's good. Chest looks and feels bigger. Jeans were also feeling pretty tight in the quad area, so thats good.

    Had a bit of a short temper today and was pretty annoyed at things. Sleeps been great.

    Did shoulders and tris tonight. Workout was good. lifted for about 1.5 hours and did 20 min of cardio. Could have deff went alot longer. Blood pressure was way up after my workout, but I had a pretty heavy p/w stack so it was expected.

    Log's lookin good! Sounds like the cut is working out real well and protomax is helping. Question, do you take a dose pre-workout? If you do, have you thought about 50mg pw and 25mg later? Thanks!

    Day 22


    Had a big refeed this weekend. Ended up getting called in to work to bartend a wedding for 250 people and went to the darkside.

    Was up to 201.5 on Sunday night! The funny part about it was I still looked leaner than when I started, lol...

    Resting vascularity was way up today. During my workout my vascularity was through the roof, never seen it that high. On a downside, my BP was way up Sunday night, 130/70.

    Strength felt like it may have been up a little. Looking a lil leaner a fuller everyday. No sides to report.
