Bump for anyone else that wants to follow and welcome to those that are.
I'll be taking before pictures tomorrow morning and have them up some time soon thereafter.

Ok, I updated the second post with before pics.
So, I started out yesterday taking 6 Mass and 3 Hard first thing in the morning. Gotta say it is both cool and weird taking pills that are green and black. To give somewhat of a pre-update, going into this cycle I have been a bit frustrated strength-wise as most of my lifts have been stagnating our outright going down over the past few weeks. I'm not sure if it's placebo or what, but today and yesterday I beat most of my previous numbers at the gym. Nothing much else to report just yet. Mood is about the same as it has been, generally positive. As I said, I will do weekly updates, so the next one will be next Saturday. I'll still be checking in probably daily if there are any questions/comments.

Blech, just noticed the Androbulk shipping date got pushed back to the 23rd. So, I'll have to play with the dosing a bit so I'm not taking too many pills at once when that arrives. I may bump the Androhard dose up to 6/day (along with the 6/day Mass) for the rest of the first 4 weeks, and then do 6 Bulk and 6 Mass the last 4 weeks. But, I'm open to suggestions. I know that Mass already has a half dose of Hard, so hopefully that wouldn't be too much.

And no problem on the pictures. This is my first log, but I'm trying to keep it boiled down to the things I look for in other logs: before/afters, weekly updates, etc. Definitely looking forward to seeing what this stuff can do. My recovery is already through the roof compared to a few days ago.

Week 1 Update:
Meant to do this over the weekend, but we know how that goes.
Effects: Main thing to note so far has been an increase in strength. As I said, my lifts were getting pretty stagnant prior to starting the cycle. But I think over the past week I've beaten all of my previous numbers, on some exercises increasing both weight and reps. Seems like I've heard people saying they don't really start to notice big strength increases until week 3 or 4, so I'm optimistic that I will be destroying my log book by then. One other thing I've noted over the past week has been an anxiolytic effect. I'm not normally an anxious person anyways, but I've felt even less so on the AM/AH (I'm guessing mostly due to the AH).
edit: Forgot to add that weight is up two pounds.
Side effects: Feels like libido might be down a little, but I could just be psyching myself out. When I did the epistane cycle previously it destroyed my libido, so I might just be looking for something to go wrong there. Something to keep an eye on at any rate. Also, not exactly a side effect, but I get these grapefruit burps throughout the day after taking the Andro pills. I'm not normally a grapefruit fan, but these aren't that bad.
Alright, I'll update again in a week, but keep an eye on here daily. Side note, the Bulk is on the way and should be here by Friday.

Sounds good. I like the GF burps too, beats fish oil burps any day.

Nice one week update. Definitely a good start.

So, I just realized the Androbulk will be here in time to do my original dosing. I'm wondering, though, what cycle dosing you all think would be better. The choices are:
Weeks 1-2: 6 Mass, 6 Hard
Weeks 3-8: 6 Mass, 2 Hard, 4 Bulk
Weeks 1-4: 6 Mass, 6 Hard
Weeks 5-8 6 Mass, 6 Bulk
Perhaps it's splitting hairs, but I would like to get the most out of this cycle obviously. I like the idea of having the Bulk in my system a little longer in the first option. But, I recall reading some posts of Matt Porter's recently talking about the benefits of switching up anabolics during a cycle, which would favor the second option. What are your opinions?
01-25-2012, 12:04 PM
I personally would go with a full dose of Bulk, so option 2 but that said I would run it for the length of option 1. Since you can't do this the I feel your best bet is option 1 since it will give you more time on Bulk.

I'm in the same boat as you. I have 2 bottles of andromass and 1 androbulk. I was planning on running 6 mass and 3 bulk for 8 weeks. I do have a question regarding your pct. Ive heard clomid is better for 19nor pct. I was originally planning nova at 20/20/10/10 but now I'm thinking clomid at 50/50/25/25. I'm still unsure. Can anyone comment on androbulk pct?
01-26-2012, 10:18 PM
Dosing as laid out will be fine.
LikeMike, I responded in the other thread.

Week 2 Update:
I figure I will go ahead and do the week 2 update now, since it looks like I'll be starting the Bulk tomorrow so parameters will change a bit.
The biggest difference I've noticed starting at the beginning of this week has been that my body temperature has been through the roof. It could partially be due to the fact that I've upped my food intake substantially, but I'm pretty sure there's more to it than that. It's actually kind of a nice "side effect" to deal with this time of year.
Other than that, not a whole lot new to report. Strength has continued to improve on most lifts. My weight is up about another 1.5 lbs. Libido seems to be about normal, and no other side effects to report. I'll continue to up the caloric intake and kill it in the gym and report back in a week.
01-29-2012, 08:15 PM
Yes to your question, and thanks for the update

How are things going steve?

Week 3 Update:
Overall things are going well. I noticed the first couple nights after starting AB (Saturday and Sunday) that hunger was way up, even not long after a large dinner. The rest of the week, though, I've been dealing with some bloating issues. Not sure what's causing it, whether it's the drop in AH dose, the addition of AB, or something else entirely. It's just annoying as it makes it a little harder to get in as much food as I would like and it's a little harder to gauge progress when you're puffed up.
While weight has been fluctuating a bit, I would estimate I've gained about 5 lbs over the last 3 weeks. Body temp is still running hot, particularly after meals. Generally strength has continued to go up, but the aggression and drive in the gym can be somewhat hit or miss. Earlier in the week, for example, I'm doing deadlifts, and even though I went up 10 lbs from the previous week I was just on it that day and killed my rep goal. Then yesterday with squats, while I added 10 lbs from last week as well, man was it a grind getting those last few reps. And I'm not sure I was hitting the depth I would have liked. Could have something to do with whatever is causing the bloating, but at least overall lifts are still going up.
That about covers the highlights. I'll report in again in a week. And as I said in the OP I'll be doing halfway progress pics, so I'll get those posted over the weekend next week as well.
