  1. Correction: I'm about 3/4 of the way done with my bottle of SuperCissusRx. Have some shoulder pain today so I don't know what is up with the SuperCissus. Maybe it was starting to work or it takes a lot longer to kick in. Maybe I'd be hurting a lot more if I wasn't using it. Maybe I'm just so old and decrepit that I need strong drugs to make me pain free!.


  2. Itchy throat today. Hope it is just allergies!. I'm always getting sick lately. Especially when I make progress at the gym. It usually happens right when I'm peaking and making amazing progress.

  3. I've been told I push myself to hard and my body can't handle the stress. I don't know though I thought pushing yourself hard was the whole point. Sure I have easy days also, you can't go all out every time you go to the gym. If you do you will over-train and you will surely be forced to take some time off.

  4. Loading up on Vitamin C today.

  6. Dang it!. That didn't seem to work. I want to know why I can't seem to go more than 4 weeks without getting sick!!. It always happens a day or two after I peak in the gym. By peak I mean I seem to be making great gains in strength and mass if I'm training that way. If I'm training for endurance, it happens right when I'm making great gains endurance wise. Either way I seem to always get sick right after making those gains. I asked my doctor this last time I was there and he told me to wash my hands more. Big help that was. Seriously, does anyone have any theories as to why this is happening to me?. I'm debating whether or not to train tomorrow. I only have 2 days left and then have Sunday-Monday off so maybe I should push through it. Maybe I'll decide in the morning.

  7. Umm.. Thinking out loud here, but I would start by eliminating grains from your diet (specifically wheat). Your immune system starts with your gut health and avoiding grains and simple sugars would be your best bet to ensure a healthy gut.

    Another thing you could try is increasing your protein intake. During steroid use your body will seek out proteins and when they arent readily available your body possibly just might start tearing down immunoproteins from the blood.

    Lastly, it may just be as simple as overtraining?

    I'm not sure it is overtraining because it always seems to happen when I'm making the best gains. I only eat grains during my carb ups beside the 1-2 wraps I usually eat on my lower carb portion of my diet. I am also supplementing with Genoymx Gut Health. Increasing protein intake is a thought but this usually happens regardless of whether I'm on a cycle.

  9. By the way should I quit my cycle now or push on and hope it goes away within a few days?.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  13. Maybe try add more alkaline food to your diet? Perhaps cortisol can be the culprit? Are you cutting (in a calorie deficit?) Too much cortisol will lower your immune system and on the other hand not enough cortisol usually leads to being more fatigued. Thats another thing, you possibly can have CFS? Is fatigue a reoccurring problem for you?

    I'm at 2500 calories a day right now but lately been going over by 200-250 calories. This is my maintenance level. I'm not sure about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I googled "Low Cortisol" and after reading I absolutely don't think I have low cortisol levels. Fatigue can be a problem for me yes.

  15. Taking today(Friday) through Monday off from the gym. Maybe I'll be able to get myself better by Tuesday and go back to the gym then. I'm continuing with my cycle and all supplements. Going to take 500 mg of Vitamin C every hour.

    HPA dysfunction/CFS is a very tricky problem (difficult to treat) You can try and get some AM cortisol test done and see. Do you supplement with fish oil? If you are taking too much it can very well be decreasing HPA activity which would lead to those fatigue symptoms

    I take 6 caps daily of Now brand Super Epa Fish oil. Also eight caps of the old Primordial Performance brand CLA. I'll be done with that soon and I don't think I'll continue to supplement with CLA after it is gone.

  18. Drinking a lot of water and it seems to be helping my throat. It doesn't feel as sore as long as I keep pounding the water.

  19. I know I don't eat nearly enough vegetables on the low carb portion of my diet. I suppose I could add carbs with just cruciferous veggies like brocolli. Or maybe add them and just don't count them.

  21. Decided I'm gonna take 500mg Vitamin C every 30 minutes instead of every hour today.

  22. Today makes officially 3 weeks in. Started my 3rd bottle of 5aOHP today too.

    Not prevent, but to help heal or recover faster. Already sick.

    Cycle was ok. I felt good at some points and bad/sad depressed feeling at other points. I have a feeling the Osta RX is what was giving me the emotional sides. I mean there were a few days that I just felt like an emotional mess, seriously it wasn't good. The odd thing was, the next day after a day like that I woke up feeling great and extremely happy. I don't know if I ever want to go through that again. Extremely low lows and extremely high highs on an emotional scale. As far as strength gains go I was getting extra reps and adding weight to almost every exercise at the latter end of the cycle. At the beginning I was gaining strength but it was slower. The great thing about the cycle is when I went to the gym I had absolutely no doubt I could lift the weights. I was better able to concentrate at the task at hand. It was almost like no one else existed when I went to lift the weights. The last week strength was unbelievable. Also the endurance factor. After a set it seems I wasn't even winded. Even after heavy squats or deadlifts where I'm usually having trouble catching my breath, when on this cycle I only needed 30 seconds or less to be ready to go again.

    It is really too bad I got sick, but then again I'm not sure I would stay on the cycle anyway due to the extreme emotional sides.
