Erase Alone log.
Hi All- I'm starting this log to document my progress using Erase solo.
I'm 38, been lifting on and off for the past 16 years but started on a serious program September 6th. Most of my exercise career consisted of competitive mountain biking and road cycling with weight training which kept my weight at around 170-175. I'm 5'10 and carry a significant amount of muscle mass in my upper leg thanks to all that cycling but he upper body was lacking.
January 1st I overhauled my diet, switched over to rice, chicken, tuna, etc plus a weight gainer (Rebuilt Mass) thrown in.
My training is consistent, 4-5 days a week of fundamentals with some isolation exercises.
I now weigh 201 with a bodyfat or ~16%
I seem to carry most of my fat I the "love handle" and navel area which is why I am cycling Erase Pro only.
I will post a post-workout "before " pic tomorrow morning (I typically workout at 7am).
I look forward to trying this out and posting my progress. Thanks all!

Day One. 9 am. Just finished Chest and Bi's. Red blotchiness is from my shirt rubbing against my skin.

Day 3. My observations include the following and could be COMPLETLEY pychosomatic but will post them nonetheless.
1. Noticed upon waking that my lovehandle area seemed slightly smaller, less pronounced.
2. Did back workout today and hit a PR with 1 arm DB cleans from the floor. 70lb for 8.
I was sweating very heavily and I noticed a slight bit of tachycardia. I noticed this yesterday and thought it had to do with my mixing of Assault and Hydroxystim but I felt it today without the added stimulant.
3. I was able to get a pump in my middle upper back in a manner that I had not felt before.
Again, all of these observations could be purely coincidental as I am just starting his cycle but I believe its better to log it in rather than dismiss it.

Day 4. No workout today. Hit back hard yesterday but no soreness, which I typically get whenever I reintroduce an exercise ( in this case, heavy DB rows.)
Libido is also up (pun intended) and noticed some interesting looks today from my buddies' wives at an event.
When your my age with the wife, kids and all that you tend to be the most fit out of the bunch!
I have also noticed a bit more vascularity in my arms and some separation in my biceps which I KNOW was not there last week. Still, it's a bit soon and from what I've read most people really start noticing things around day 10-12.
Liking the results so far!

Day 5. Day off. Noticed a bit of a mood swing but that is to be expected when increasing testosterone.
I can now say that my hip area has decreased in fat. Left left handle is visibly smaller
It is also important to note that I have not changed my diet nor increased cardio.

Day 6. Back/Deadlifts day.
I use the trap bar as I find its better for my low back and medial epicondolysis in my right arm. That said, my weights went up 20lbs since last week.
225x10, 315x5, 365x4, 385x3. And I felt that I could have kept going..
T- bar row (just counting the plates)
90x15, 135x10 and a drop set of 180 down the ladder.
I'also noticed the dry skin and lips but that's a minor issue. Fish oil has helped in these areas, too.
Again, no change I diet and no increase in cardio.

Was a crazy morning. The only thing that kept me from doing more reps was that I lost one of my straps and my grip was slipping in the max set.

One more thing to note; 1 week before starting this cycle I STOPPED using creatine.
I had used ReBuilt Mass for two months ( yes, expensive but I was happy with it) which contains 10 grams of Creatine.
I don't know how long it takes for the effects of Creatine to wear off, nor do I know or believe in the "water retention" remarks sometime associated with creatine use (subcutaneous as opposed to intramuscular) but I felt it was worth mentioning.

I'll do them next Monday. For what its worth, I've come close to this mark using traditional bar lifts but my lower back doesn't like it.

Day 7- Chest and bi's
Today was the first workout in 2 months where I performed dips. I've had a nagging shoulder pain and it has auspiciously gone away. Coincidence?
3 sets, with the final at 70lbs for 10.
Dumbbell presses 80x10.
Weighted pushups (45lb plate on my back) 12 reps.
Starting to see some veins pop out in my front delt/pec.
Edit- A week ago I measured my bodyfat in a ****ty Omron handheld device and it was 16.9% at 7am
Today at 7am it was 16.2%

Nice work. I had all kinds of little aches before starting ep/intimidate. All gone as well. Incredible what a little test boost can do...
FWIW electro impedance is a bad way to measure bf. spend six bucks on some calipers!
Keep it up,

I agree. They're crappy, but if they're consistantly crappy then I'm good! LolOriginally Posted by Est1969
The fact that my aches are gone has enabled me to break through certain plateaus .

Day 8. Rest day. Noticed a lot more size a definition in my shouders. Several of my polo shirts now will not stay buttoned on the second button! Didn't have this problem last week!
Looking forward to weighted pullups tomorrow.

Day 9. I had a conference in NY all day today so I had to work out in the evening. I'm typically a morning person so this was an adventure to say the least. Very crowded but, as usual, almost no one at the power rack.
To my amazement I was able to do two exercises that I had to abandon due to medial epicondolytis; overhand barbell rows and power cleans. Neither exercise bothered my elbows and I was throwing weight around like like a midget at a carnival!
Now there are those that have mentioned joint soreness from Erase Pro; I've had the opposite side effect. It seems that my low back and golfer's elbow have subsided to the point that the aforementioned exercises can be reintroduced.
Now, have you ever had a workout where you KNOW you're going to grow from it?
Or done a back workout so hard you CHEST got pumped? Well, today was that day.

My guess on the elbow pain: the testosterone accelerated the recovery of the muscle soreness, but you have yet to feel the actual joint soreness from your natural lubricants drying out due to low estrogen. This is coming so have your cissus ready.
